HUERTA A PROTEGE
Former President of Mexican Republic Early Recognized Possi
bilities of Man Who Practically Succeeded Him
Has Seen Hard Service, and From the First Has Been Recognized
. as a Ruthless and Determined Man Seemingly,
Knows No Quality of Mercy.
Once intended by old Porllrlo to bo
a second Diaz in Mexico, now, llko
his former chief, a fugitive from tho
wrath of his compatriots, Vlctorlnno
Iluorta sees himself at sixty forced to
resign the presidency of his country.
Ho will, It la believed, go to Europe,
whore, llko other Latin American
presidents, ho will cud his duys with
llttlo enjoyment savo that of reminis
cence Huorta was born to wealth. Unllko
Diaz, who Ib of plobolan origin, a
mongrel, mostly Indian, Huorta comc3
of one of tho moot aristocratic faml
Mes In Mexico.
Ho was born in Chihuahua, with
which state tho Huertna havo long
boen Identified, in 1S54, or 1857, ro
ports differ. At the ago of seventeen
the aristocrat was appointed1 by DInz,
then ruling Mexico with an Iron hand,
to the military school of Chnpultepoc.
Huorta served his four school yearn
passably well. Ho was neither at tho
head nor the foot of his class. Ha
waB graduated with honors, bolng
about the tenth In a class of nearly a
hundred, and Immediately went to Join
a regiment on the west coast as a sec
ond lieutenant of engineers.
When President Diaz began his re
organization of tho Mexican army
Huorta was promoted captain of engi
neers, and while holding this rank de
vised tho plan for a Mexican general
staff corps. Ho was an active member
of the military map commission creat
ed to draft a staff map of Mexico on
a largo scale, and ho bad charge of all
tho topographical work of tho commis
sion, lending exploring and surveying
parties over tho wildest regions of tho
President Diaz soon after began to
place confidence In Huorta. He be
lieved he saw in tho lieutenant colonel
of engineers, to which rank tho sol
dier had succeeded, traits which would
make him a worthy successor in tho
executive chair. Huerta was placed in
charge of a station In Matanzas, far
removed from tho capital. There plots
could be easily hatched, and Diaz was
loath to leave In chargo any officer
in whom he had not implicit trust
Huerta waB barely thirty-five when
this Incident occurred. One afternoon
while ho was riding with an escort of
but three men through a mountain
pass In the vicinity of his station, six
or seven masked men stepped from
the roadside and covered his little par
ty. Naturally thoy throw up their
The highwaymen proved to be mom
bers of tho band of Fiores Zegaza, tho
bandit who kept tho community on
tho feather edge. It was his habit to
descend on tho towns along the coast
and levy toll whenever hunger of
caprice lmpcllod htm to do so. Huerta
soon stood In front of Zcgaza's hut,
an adobo dwelling, much dilapidated,
far up the mountain.
There Zegnza made the proposition
which was not at all unusual In Mex
ico then, and which is, In fact, qutto
the vogue today. Ho proposed that
Huerta should keep him Informed as
to the days when the military forco
would bo marching In a direction op
posite from the town.
On such days Zegaza would.make it
a point to call, with his followers, and
collect from the natives such stores
of money and' clothos and food and
wine and tobacco as had accumulated
since the last visit.
Zegaza was not at all surprised to
have Huerta accept his proposition to
receive in return for the promised In
formation a share of whatever loot fell
to the bandits.
Ten days later Huerta sent word to
Zegaza that ho would be away from
tho Btatlon on tho following Thursday.
Promptly on Thursday tho bandits
rodo Into Matanzas, confident thero
would be no opposition except from
tho sporadic popguns of the ovorfrlght
cned storekeepers. As they turned
into tho main street, discharging their
revolvers to frighten every one away,
a squad of Hucrta's soldiers closed in
on their rear and another squad ap
peared In their front.
i i i
A number of Zcgaza's men wcro
killed In tho street. Tho remainder,
with tho bandit chief himself, surren
dered. A week later Zegaza was shot
In the cuartel of tho prison attached
to tho station.
Huerta Is no drawing room soldier.

It was charged that he did not enrrj
out tho operations with any spirit and
that ho disobeyed the comtnnnds of
President Mndero. It Is said that be
fore Hlanquet entered the city tho
genernls had n conference at which
tho fato of tho Mndoros was scalod.
Huerta was tho moving spirit In tho
consummation of tho plot that result
ed in tho seizure of tho person of
President Mndero, his brother, Gus
tavo, and Vlco President Jose Pino
Sauroz. Tho assassinations of the
MaderoB and Saurez followed, and in
tho meantime Huerta, with the mili
tary behind him, had been recognized
as tho provisional president
Huerta at once sought recognition of
the UnltcdeStntcs, for it is understood
In Itln-Amerlcan countries that none
of their presidents can hold office long
without being recognized by the Amer
ican government. President Wilson,
however, refused to treat Huerta ai
chief executlvo of Mexico.
In the meantime, General Carranza
tho successor of Madera In the dream
of a JusUy governed Mexico, was win
ning over the North. His military
commander, General Villa, repeatedly
defeated tho federal forces. Practical
ly all of tho North came under the
constitutionalist sway. In tho South
Zapata held out agalnlt Huorta.
Then the United States camo down
upon him, seizing tho city of Vera
Cruz as a result of an affront to the
Stars nnd Stripes. Mediation at the
Instance of Argentina, Brazil and Chile
followed with no satisfactory results.

Jews lookod for a temporal visible
Kingdom nnd many wcro associating
tho earthly llfo of our Lord with that
expected manifestation. Honco this
parablo as recorded by Luko.
Issue Is Fidelity.
I. "Occupy Till I Come," w. 11-14.
Roth of thoso parables havo to do with,
tho roturn of an absent lord who will;
then establish his kingdom. In vlowi
of this return and consummation, his'
Borvants aro to glvo their undivided'
attention to their Immcdlato responsi
bilities. Thoy nro to trndo, to do busli
noss with that that has been In
trusted to them Thoy nro to actively
discharge their duty. Ero tho visible
kingdom Is established, Jesus told
thoso Jows, there must bo a period of
preparation. Josub, himself, Ib the
"nobleman" whoso ascension Into
heaven whoro ho Ib to rocelvo a king
dom fulfils tho "doparturo into a far
country." Ho will return to sot up
that kingdom, Acts 1:9-11, with "all
authority." Matt. 28:18 II. V., Eph. l:
18-23; I Pet. 3:22. Ho may roturn at
any tlmo. In neither parablo Is thero
a full description of tho kingdom as it
is to bo established, for both have to
do with tho servants. Tho issue Is
that of fidelity in each case.
Tho "citizens" (v. 14) include his
propor subjects tho Jows, John 1:11;
Acts 4:27-28, and in this connection
wo recall tholr cry, "Away with him,
crucify," Luko 23:8; John 19:15. These
"citizens," also include all of his pro
fessed followers but not necessarily
regenerated men, Matt 7:22-33. Tho
king gives to each servant (v. 13) a
pound (about (18.00). His deposit is
equal in each case. In the parable of
the talents thero is a, difference in tho
amounts bestowed. This last empha
sizes the fact that each is to be held
responsible according to the measure
of his own personal ability. Putting
thoso two together we see that all tho
servants of tho king aro responsible
for the one pound which Ib a symbol
of tho common fact of the kingdom
power. At the samo tlmo the sorvnnt
is also responsible for that common
power according to the measure in
which it Is entrusted to him, in which
ho is able to deal with it The small
amount of ono pound Indicates our re
sponsibility for tho smallest gifts.
Parable of Pounds. '
,11. "When He Was Returned." w.
15-30. Tho parablo of tho pounds was
spoken to thoso who thought ho must
at once establish ho kingdom of God.
That of tho talents was given in an
swer to the discIploB inquiry as to
when certain things which ho bad fore
told would take place. Upon bis ro
turn all theso servants will bo sum
moned before him, Matt 25:18, Rom.
14:10-12, II Cor. 6:10. As Jesus stood
there, he, likewise of that as of all
other ages, saw ahead of bim Jeru
salem with its scourging, suffering
and death. Ho also saw beyond that
his resurrection and departure to ro
celvo a kingdom (v. 12), a period
theraforo In this world durlngi which
his servants shall be responsible for
the caro of his interests, a time dur
ing which they shall occupy, do busi
ness with what ho has entrusted them
of tho kingdom authority and power.
All of this will culminate In his re
turn wbon ho will deal with thoso to
whom this responsibility has been;
given, and then establish Anally his
kingdom. In tho parablo Jesus deals
with each servant separately, and em-,
phaslzos tho fact of stewardship. Tho
pound belonged to tho king. For bis
faithfulness tho first servant received,'
T. 17, (a) tho king's commendation;
and (b) authority over ten cities
Later, (v. 21) ho also received anothorj
pound. Tho second did not glvo quite
so good a report, and his reward
lacked tho approbation of tho king;
though ho is placed over "fi,vo cities.
His reward was In proportion to his
The third report was bad. It ro
veals neglect, laziness, and a wrong
conception regarding the king. He
sought to excuse his sloth By blaming
another. The excuses of tho sinner
always condemn himself, not God, and
augment tho sinner's guilt. Tho
"wicked servant" lost what he would
not uso. If wo will not, use wo must
loso. Doubtless this servant considered
himself unfortunate, though ho waB,
judged "out of his own mouth," Re
verting ngalu to thoso citizens who
bated him and would not havo the
king to "reign over them," Jesus
closes his parable (v. 27).
