MEXICO CITY. May 20.-The Mexi

time past that dissatisfaction with the
regime of lsident Cubeira was wide

tributed a proclamation to the inhabi-
, tants of Guatemala. Among other things.
the proclamation to the inhabitants re
cites that the standard of revolt has
been raised at the two extremes of the
republic against Cubeira, '"The most
calamitous figure of our contemporan
eous history, who having possessed him
self of power by crime, has perpetuated
himself therein by a chain of crimes."
The proclamation continues:
"We desire, with the entire country,
radical reform of the Con-titution of
1879 in order that it may fulfill the as
pirations of true literals who are such
by principle and not of usurpers, who
don the phrygian cup for lucre and who,
calling themselves the champions of law

ana uoerty, pas their lives in open
enmity with all liberty and all law. We
desire that reform that guaranteed that
the individual may no longer be at the
mercy of the first despot who has a
mind to trample on them; that criminal
functionaries shall be made to answer
for their misdeeds that there may be no
more savage torture arbitrary imprison
ment nor executions without trial in
Guatemala; that justiee may be done
to him who is elected thereto. We de
sire a legislature freely elected by the
people. We desire n change in the
blundering foreign policy of President
Cabejra. We desire to cultivate with
our sister republics cordial and truly
fraternal relations instead of provoking
