I am not going to praise your news service. I shall only say ~hat, because of it, The New York Times is the only newspaper in America to which I subscribe. Some years ago I visited an important per- sonage who is an authority on the Russian question,'and I was not sur- prised to find in his study a com- plete collection of Times clippings about Russia. "They are the best published," he said, and I agreed with him. With regard to China, England, France and Germany, it is the same; but with regard ~o Mexico, which is, in my opinion, of far more impor- tance to the United States, there has been during the last twelve months an inexplicable hesitancy and even a ~cotal fMlure to record many ex- traordinary happenings. This is not only my opinion, but that of every single individual to whom I spoke on this subject, during the last six months and of all ..the newspaper corresponder~ts and diplomats with whom I ta}ked in Mexico. Surely you underestimate ~he ex- cellence of your foreign service, the ability and daring of your correspon- dents when you ask us to believe that the trouble is partly due to one bad man in the Mexican cable office who draws a thick red line through most of your correspondent's cables. The achievements of your represen- 'ta%Ives during the great war, during the Sinn Fein struggle, and recently in China, Russia and other parts of the Old World all speak for them- selves. Your reporters have unveiled for us the distant and mysterious City of Lassa, yet you ask us to believe that they cannot unveil the City of Mexico, which is so near that it can be called up in a few mom- ents on the telephone and reached in a few days by rail. You know perfectly well that if tomorrow you let loose in Mexico the trained jour- nalists whom you keep in London, Paris and China they would, in ten days' time. turn that country inside out, like an old pocket, and make the whole situation there absolutely "c]ea~. 1 pleted their preparations.
