Our Mission in Mexico

N the occupation of Vera Cruz by the armed

forces of the United States the inevitable

happened. For months the administra- tion’s policy towards Mexico had been headed toward intervention. The occupation of Vera Cruz launched the United States upon the task of securing for the Mexican people peat eful conditions and a stable government. Eager though the country had been for a more vigor- ous policy at Washington, it is significant that there was prolonged debate in the Senate be-

fore the resolution was passed justifying the President “tin the employment of the armed forces of the United States to enforce his de

mands for unequivocal amends for affronts and

indignities committed against the United States.” The resolution introduced by sen- itor Lodge, and ably supported by Senator

Root, sought to ground our future course with Mexico, not simply on Huerta’s refusal to make full amends for the insult to our flag at Tampico, but on the broader foundation of the 150 Amer- ican lives which have been sacrificed, the mil- dollars’ worth of American property which has been destroyed, and the condition of inarchy in Mexico which has made it impossible

to secure by diplomatic means the protection of ife and property. The Lodge resolution, which iled of passage, covered the whole field and

would have adequately justified our course in the eyes of all nations.

Although the former policy of the administra- tion in dealing with Mexico has proved to be a

failure, this is not the time for criticising a mis-

taken past policy. Let us not, however, make . failure of the more aggressive policy now idopted. If there had been any hope on the part

President Wilson that the Constitutionalist forces vuld be relied upon to eliminate Huerta in case ve shut off his intercourse with the outside world, that hope was disposed of by the communication of Carranza, ‘‘ First Chief’’ of the Constitu- Army, criticising the United States Govern-

General tionalist

vent for landing an armed force at Vera Cruz. rhe task before us is not simply the elimination of Huerta, but the vastly more difficult problem of

pacifying and stabilizing Mexico. Our purpose is not to conquer Mexico, but to restore the Mexicans to their rights as citizens of a republic, and to secure stable government capable of protecting the lives ind property of foreigners. The country stands be- ind President Wilson to a man in his repeated declara- tion that the United States has no thought of “selfish ivgrandizement”’ in Mexico. Admiral Fletcher’s roclamation on occupying Vera Cruz, calling open the people of of that city to co-operate with him 1 the preservation of order and in the protection of ife and property, is a fair statement of our attitude »ward the Mexican Republic as a whole. However reluctant we have been to enter upon such an under- taking, we are now committed to it beyond recall. Watching and waiting are things of the past. The ltimate depends upon the romptness and vigor with which it is pushed. Our responsibility towards Mexico we cannot now escape. We owe it to the world also to complete what we

~ Will War Mar These Peaceful Scenes?


EDITOR'S NOTE—This is the seventh of a notable series of articles written by the managing editor of ‘‘Leslie’s,’’ who was sent to Mexico to make an impartial study of the conditions in that distracted land. Mr. Splitstone’s reviews of Mexican affairs have been widely noticed by the press. This is the last article so far received from Mr. Splitstone. Suddenly his contributions ceased to come to this office, and he himself disappeared in the heart of Mexico. On or about March 20th, Mr. Splitstone intended to start northward from the City of Mexico for Torreon, 700 miles away, then about to be attacked by Villa's forces. We understand that a number of other correspondents of American newspapers and magazines, as well as photographers, started with Mr. Splitstone, on a train carrying Federal troops. These men were therefore with the Federal army, and as railroad and telegraphic communication was not entirely broken off, they should have been able to send back messages to the United States. For about five weeks not one word came from them. Happily on April 27th a telegram was received from Mr. Splitstone announcing his safe return to Mexico City, but saying that the date of his leaving for Vera Cruz was uncertain. He apparently was being detained ** incommunicado’’ at the Mexi- can capital. Leslie’s however has met the

emergency. Mr. Stanton Leeds, a capable young journalist has been commissioned to act as its representative with the Atlantic

Fleet. He sailed recently on the dreadnought
