The Mexican Liberal Party has no compromise to make with either [Porfirio] Díaz or [Francisco I.] Madero. The proposer peace treaty between Díaz and Madero will not stop the revolutionary activity of the liberals, nor the activity of the other revolutionary forces independents of Madero.  
            At this very moment fighting is going on in all the states of the mexican republic against the federal forces, regardless of any peace treaty signed by Díaz and Madero. 1  
            Madero is not the revolution. Madero is simply a leader of the forces at present under his command.  
            The lands given by Díaz to foreingn millonaries will be taken of the mexican republic, and has the northern portion of Lower California in complete control.  
            Even if the Madero forces in the vicinity of [Ciudad] Juárez[, Chihuahua] and other states would surrender, the liberal columns scattered all over the republic would remain and keep up the fight.  
            Lower California will soon be entirely in the hands of the Mexican Liberal Party. Then the lands will be given to the working classes with the machinery, for they are the true and rightful owners, as they are the only ones who work.  
            The lands given by Díaz to foreingn millionaries will be taken away and given back to the indians. And all through the republic this will be done as fast as the Mexican Liberal Party controls the situation.  
            The revolution of the mexican liberal party is not a political but a true economical revolution.

1  Refiérese a los “Tratados de Ciudad Juárez”,  firmados el 21 de mayo de 1911, por el represemte de Porfirio Díaz, Francisco S. Carbajal y Francisco I. Madro, José María Pino Suárez y Francisco Vázquez Gómez, en aquella ciudad chihuahuense. El punto central de dichos tratados fue el siguiente: “Desde hoy cesarán en todo el territorio de la República las hostilidades que han existido entre las fuerzas del gobierno del General Díaz y las de la Revolución, debiendo éstas ser licencidas a medida que en cada Estado se vayan dando los pasos necesarios para restablecer y garantizar la tranquilidad y el orden público”.
