ASTI?ONO man and in many ways a remarkable man
passed aAVay when Porfirio Diaz breathed his last
in Paris recently. Ruling spirit of Mexico for over a third
of a century, with powers of absolute monarch, he had the
greatest of opportunities for. service to his nation and
humanity. That ho missed his opportunity is proven by
his death in exile, execrated by his countrymen, while tho
nation he ruled by the strong arm-is rapidly approaching
During Diaz' regime he was haled as a reat and en
lightened statesman, even as a benefactor. The nation was
apparently prosperous as if modernized. Vet the' prosper
ity and advancement were only a thin venet'r over its
The gospel of force and greed ruled Mexico. Diaz'
ideals were the feudal ideals. Might replaced right. The
logical outcome of miaiiHe of power in reflected in the chaos
that has followed the removal of repression.
Tyranny invariably mil its a nation lor government.
Injustice ever breeds rebellion and anarchy. I)iaz has left
Mexico more miserable than be found it, and the fruits of
his reign sowed the seeds of diBcord for futurity.
Kar from being the savior of his nation, Diaz became
its oppressor. History must regard him as a common
tyrant, bent on selfisdi ends, instead of a benefactor of
The prosperity of a mil ion rests on (he prosperity, wel
fare and advancement of the masses. Diaz never compre
hended this, fie substituted the feudal idea that the
nation's welfare rested on the prosperity of the classes, in
the creation and perpetuation of privilege, in the subjuga
tion and degredation of the people. The government he
created was an oligarchy of privilege. The many wore
robbed for the few.. The solidarity of the nation, in conse
quence, w;is an illusion' that the first breath of adversity
What did Diaz do for the petiple of Mexico? I In con
fiscated their common and pueblo holdings for his officers
and he reduced the owners to peonage a'nd slavery. Ho
perpetuated and extended the Spanish systom of spolia
tion and added a new class of oppressors.. The natural re
sources and heritage of an undeveloped nation he bartered
away for foreign gold and
onlv object was to loot the
While the haciendas grew in extent the people grew in
poverty. The wealth of fhe classes was in sad contrast to
the squalor of the masses. The superficial culture and
beauty of his capital were a mockery on the ignorance mid
superstition of the nation. Knowledge, ever a foe to
tyranny, was banished to keep the multitude in subjection.
The' huge undeveloped resources of Mexico and the
open door to their acquisition brought the spoilers from
every laud to prey upon the nation. Vast tracts of land,
great mineral belts, immense forest areas, went as "con
cessions" and the followers of Diaz became wealthy as the
nation became poorer. His dictatorship might be called
tho triumph of graft with Diaz tho master grafter an
ideal commercial regime.
Diaz might have improved
people, lie might have educated them. He might have
materially, socially and intellectually advanced tliem but
he was content to exploit them. Jle might have ranked as
one of the world's great patriots, as the redeemer of Mex-
tyrant, blind to his great opportunity to uplilt humanity
and found an enduring nation.
