this was particularly true after 1913. The series of incidents and
the spreading revolutionary activity along the border after mid-
191o, constituted a constant problem of increasing seriousness to
the citizens of the state and to the authorities responsible for the
safety of the area and for the enforcement of the laws. One epi-
sode merged with another in such a fashion that, from the north-
ern side of the river, there was no distinction. The policy of the
government changed with changing conditions and to some ex-
tent with changing personalities, but from the point of view of
the United States the policy was more or less consistent, based
on an effort to prevent actions which would make intervention
necessary. Although the Madero movement received more con-
sideration from the law enforcers of the region than did the
others, the more lenient attitude was the product of the peculiar
conditions of the moment and not the result of any desire on
the part of the government to bring about a defeat of the Diaz
regime. With the growth of activity from the Texas region the
government was forced to take some steps which would dis-
courage such actions; the attitude toward Reyes and the March
resolution directed against ,Orozco were both parts of this new
concept. It was to be many years after the fall of the Madero
government on February 19, 1913, before the conditions along
the border were completely peaceful and before the normal
border patrol could maintain control.
