It includes not only the settle-
ment of the border wrangle, but
also the social, political and eco-
nomic regeneration of Mexico.
Every phase of Mexican life is
being discussed, every type an-
alyzed at this conference, the
servile peon, the marauding ban-
dit, the rapacious landlord.
The American members of the
commission have formed the
opinion that the murder of Amer-
icans and the seizure of Ameri-
can property in Mexico are only
tho outward symptoms of the
Mexican disease. They believe
that the oountry must be born
again, re-created according to
new ideals, before the dangers of
fresh revolutions and renewed
border raids shall have been end-
The twelve different steps to-
ward this end to be considered
by the commission p,re:
Protection of the border.
, Establishment of American
garrisons along a line of block-
houses from the Gulf of Mexico
to the Paoific ocean, a distance
of 1,800 miles.
The organization of Mexico’s
standing army into various de-
tachments, which will be assign-
ed to the pursuit of Villa and
other bandits. The Carranza
envoys promised to isolate Villa
so that he will no longer be a
menace to Americans.
The allotment of land to dis-
charged soldiers and peons so
they will no longer have the in-
centive of following brigandage
The enactment of laws ena-
bling these people to acquire the
lands they cultivate.
A system of government aid
by which these ignorant Mexican
farmers may learn to develop the
full resources of the land.
Reformation of the Mexican
way of levying- taxes, which fre-
quently amounts to confiscation.
The establishment of a land tax
similar to that in the United
States. The education of the
peon and lower classes in the
way of living and lines in indus-
try which will make them want
peace instead of war.
The establishment of the pres-
ent fiat currenoy upon a sound
The husbanding or safeguard-
ing of the national revenues ac-
cording to an agreement which
will guarantee the purchasers of
Mexican bonds and make possi-
ble the floating of a large Mexi-
Immediate rehabilitation of the
Mexican railroads at an estimat-
ed cost of $25,000,000.
A treaty between Mexioo and
the United States which will give
Mexico this government’s moral
support in these reforms.
As the border question is of
first importance, it was taken up
at the first meeting. Of the
plans suggested by both Mexi-
cans and Americans the one be-
lieved most likely to be approved
provided for the withdrawal of
American troops from Mexico.
Assignment of A m e r i c a n
ican soil along the border is to
follow, together with the estab-
lishment of a neutral zone twen-
ty to 100 miles wide along the
entire international line.
The American troops will be
posted on the frontiers of Texas,
New Mexico, Arizona, and Cal-
ifornia. Block houses will be
built and armed at intervals to
permit effective cy-operation in
an emergency. Ml are to be
connected by telegraph, tele-
phone and wireless, so that if
Mexican bandits try to break
through at one or more points all
of the American troops can be
brought into play immediately.
The neutral zone has been
proposed to permit the operation
of either American or Mexican
troops in the pursuit of brigands
without raising the question
whether they crossed the inter-
national land thereby invaded a
foreign country.' Beyond this
no man’s land, however, Amer-
icans must not invade Mexico,
or Mexicans the United States, ;
