Warning to the Mexican Factions
I'nitod States instinctively and gen
erously sympathized. Hut the lead
ers of the revolution in the very hour
of their success have d'Hairreed and
turned their arms against one nn
cther. "All professing the same objec
tive, they are nevertheless unable or
unwilling to to-operate. A central
authority of Mexico City Is no sooner
set up than it is undermined and its
authority denied by those who were
expected to support It.
"Mexico is apparently no neiarer
a solution of Its tragical troubles
than it whs when the revolution was
first kindled. It has been swept by
civil wsr as if by fire, its crops are
destroyed, Ua fields He unseeded. Its
work rattle are confiscated for the
use of the armed factions, its people
flee to the mountains to escape being
drawn Into the unavailable blood
shed and no man seems to see or lead
the way to pescn and settled order.
There Is no proper protection either
for Its own citizens or the citizens of
other nations resident or at work
within its territory. Mexico is starr
ing Hnd wHhout a government.
United States Mutt
Take Some Hand.
"In these circumstances the people
and government of the United States
cannot stand indifferently by and do
nothing to serve their neighbors.
They want nothing for themselves in
Mexico. ICHHt of all do they desire
to settle its affairs for it or claim any
right to do so. But neither do they
wish to see utter ruin come upon It,
and they deem it their duty as
friends and neighbors to lend all aid
they properly can to any instru
mentality which promises to be effec
tive in bringing about a settlement
which will embody the real objects

The questions of fact raised by Ger

An unfavorable answer to this Inquiry

"It Is time, therefore, that the gov

presently do what it has neither
done or felt at liberty to do lend
Its active moral support to some man

a government with whom the pro

therefore publicly and very solemnly
call upon the leaders of factions in

act promptly, for the relief and re

them that if they cannot accommo

short time this government will be
constrained to decide what means
should be employed by the United
