However, still another motivation, and one that would not have occurred to us but for the participation of De Los Reyes in Masonic-sponsored oratorical contests as a youth in Tampico, is that Freemasonry provided a school for politics.
An additional reason that can be suggested for a Mexican politician becoming a Mason may have been less obvious at the time but in retrospect seems plausible: Masonry was a finishing school in oratory and leadership.
The Masonic lodges in Mexico City at the end of the Diaz regime supported Bernardo Reyes, and in July 1909, they refused to attend the official observance of the death of Juarez and instead staged their own, which was essentially a Reyista and anti administration rally.
