Mexko is the scene of a cut-throat war between certain-rival camps in the world of international finance. The American camp is dominated, iy the Standarc Oil trust, backed by an army'of :Uniled States and Canadian investors in Mexican lands- and franchises. The most dangerous rival to Siand- 'ard Oil interests is Lord Cowdray, leading a powerful group of British andiEuropeananvest ors. Between-.the Mexican- .peasants have'been robbed of their lands and reduced I a state of peonage or semfolavery. During the Diaz regime, Lord Cowdray's company secured certain rich concessions of mineral arid oil lands, built railways, and established steamship lines. Cowdray's Mexican Eagle Oil company became so powerful as to threaten the very existence of the Standard Oil trust. "Tampico, for instance, where the United Slates fleet is concentrating, is a good example of the rivalry between the Mexican Eagle antPihc Standard Oil trusts.
