"We are now trying to arrange for a
renewal of the former system. Foreign-
ers in Mexico today are accorded every
protection. In the few disturbed area
they are occasionally made the victims
of bandits but in every case the govern
ment i devoting the utmost energy to
the pursuit and punishment of the crim-
"A few wandering bandits scattered
over an immense and sparsely settled
country a country of mountains and wil-
derness in part can keep a great many
troops' busy a your: own- western ex-
periences have dojnonstrated. The Mex-
ican government today is spending two-
third of its national income on the pur-
suit and punishment of bandit.
"Zapata and many other bandit chiefs
have been tracked to their lair and other
small bands are breaking uo. The gov
ernment today ia making a showing in
this tremendous task.
"Mexico has never repudiated any of
ner international Obligation and will
meet every debt which i due. She has
the resource to discbarge every obliga-
tion without making any serious drain
on her national wealth and as fast as
these assets become available with the
revival of industry she will meet her ob-
ligations. In the oil regions there has
not been one instance of confiscation nor
are the companies paying royalties. In
1918 they produced 64000000 barrels of
oil out of a -potential capacity of their

prosperity and profit.
"The very intense propaganda of these
days when the principal bandits are
being killed or are surrendering to the
government forces or disbanding and
when the pacification of the country is in
sight is interpreted in Mexico as the last
effort of expatriates member of the old
rejrime of Mexico and their powerful con
federates and politician in Europe and
this country to precipitate armed inter-
vention as they feel that when the com'
plete pacification the rehabilitation of the
industries how in suspense the intensi
fication of commercial relatione and the
development of the wonderful resources
of the country their dread of an obsolet
despotic form of government and the
employment of two nations in armed con'
ilict will be a thing of the past."
