. The late campaign was fought
out on one side on broad hints of
armed intervention in Mexico.
Mexican blood dripped from
many a campaign speech. Do
mands for armed intervention
have been proclaimed in the
halls of the American congress.
They are frequently voiced in
American newspapers. Annexa

Rio Grande to Panama is con

All these things were going
on while the Mexican commis
sioners were holding sessions
ers in the United States. - Those
with the American commission
utterances keep alive the dis
trust created in Mexico by Amer
ican annexation of Mexican ter
ritory. That distrust is one
great reason why the Mexican
commissioners hesitate to agree
to the American contention for
American troops to be allowed to
pursue Mexican bandits in Mex
ican territory. -,
Our difficulties in the Mexi
can situation are largely of our
own making. Certain of our
American citizens hold vast
tracts -of land, vast deposits of
oil and minerals that of; right
belong to poverty-stricken Mex
icans. The Mexican idea of us
