Should the Mexican government re

Fall pre of the Mexican government

and effectively to protect American

and was disposed to comply with the

any armed bands In any attacks upon
our troops or forces whose purpose
would simply ba the ' restoration ot
peace and order; protection ot our clti

restoration to American citizens of
tholr properties; the affording of op

people themselves, In whatsoever
manner they desire, to constitute a
Mexican government of serious, com
petent, honest and honorable )meti
who will meet the civilized world up
on a friendly ground and bind them
selves to deal with other people as
they themselves would be dealt with
The outstanding feature of the
agreement which the committee rec
ommends should be the basis for the
proposed treaty between the Unltoi
States and Mexico Is that the consti
tution of 1867 be substituted for that
of 1917. The Committee also propos
es that Mexico agree that none ot the
provisions of the new institution
commonly regarded as confiscatory
shuld in any event apply to American
citizens, that the restriction against
the work ot any minister of the gon -
pel or any religious body in that
country should be, removed and thut
the article providing for the expulsion
of undesirable foreigners, known un
der the old constitution as "article
33" be revised or eliminated.
