MADERO THE MAN
Red Cross Executive Describes
Personality of Now Famous
“In Francisco I. Aladcro one
sees no trace of t he military
leader,” says Ernest 1*. Bicknell,
National Director of the Ameri
can Red Cross, who lias just re
turned from the Mexican border,
where the Red Cross is caring for
Mexican refugees and wounded
Mexican soldiers, “in phyisque
he is unimpressive, in manner
quiet and unaggressivc. llis ex
pression is pleasing and gentle.
In conversation his face lights
up and one sees in him the ideal
ist, the. dreamer. Instinctively
oue feels the absolute sincerity
of the man and is prepared to
believe him capable of the great
est sacrifice for his people and
‘ country. But there is no sug
gestion of the fanatic. That he
is a man of education and cul
ture is always apparent, and his
use of the English language many
educated Americans might well
cnvi. It is impossible not to be
lieve that he must have resorted
to arms and warfare with the
greatest reluctance, and one ques
tions whether he could control
and direct extensive military
operations, with the opportunities
which they afford for the play
of passion and the selfish ag
grandizement of ambitious lea
“Of many of the officers in
command of the insurrecto forces
which captured Juarez, a wholly
different characterization is in
evitable. Motives are too subtle
for cursory discovery, but the
impression one gains from ob
serving 3ome of these men is
that they are primarily adventur
ers, inspired by love of excite
ment and change, or by an am
bition for power or plunder. The
cessation of hostilities and de
claration of peace wrere not wel
come to these men, and no one
familiar with conditions will be
surprised if some of these rebel
leaders continue to be. a source
cf disorder and obstruction to
the reforms which Madero is
hoping to effect.
“No sooner was Juarez taken
and peace in sight than jealous
ies broke out between the Mexi
can iusurreeto army leaders ami
the foreigners, who, as officers or
privates, had joined the rebel
ranks. Jlany Americans of the
iusurreeto army were charged
with looting Juarez after the
city was taken and were forced
to flee across the river to El
Paso. P»y other means, also, a
process of elimination began
which promises soon to clear the
ranks of the foreign element,
whose services had been joyfully
welcomed while there was light
ing to be done. Any sentiment
of indignation at this apparent in
justice is tempered by the com
monly accepted belief that the
motives leading a majority of the
Americans to take up the insur
reeto cause were not wholly al
truistic. There can be no ques
tion, however, that the reckless
daring of these Americans was
a large factor in the iusurreeto
