Washlhaton. July 2S. Whlla ad
ministration officials here bellava that
the crisis will not be reached In Mex
ico until the northern rebel armlea
press cloeer to Mexico City and the
federal ttrongholds. Indication to
night were that an effort would be
nwde by the Washington government
to pursue o well defined policy before
events reached a critical stage.
The flrat tep In the formulation of
a policy wjll he taken tomorrow when
Ambaaaador Henry Lane Wilson wUl
bring to the president and Secretary
Bryan first-hand Information ot tne
situation there. Mr. Bryan announced
tonight emphatically that there was
no disposition on the part of the ad-
ministration hire to interrogate Am
bassador Wilson about the numerous
rmorts alleging activity on his part
in connection with the downfall of
Mntloro and the establishment of the
Ilueita rcgirce. He added that the
' ambassador had been called merely
to throw light on present conditions
In the troublous republic.
Before Senate Committee.
After Ambassador Wilson has con.
tan-red with Secretary Bryan he will
talk further with President Wilson
and probably will be asked to appear
before the senate committee on for-

pressed on his arrival in New York

tion and had Indicated his sympathies

ment to be recogniaed were communi-
cated Informally to Mr. Bryan who
made no comment.
Bryan Before Committee.
Immediately after his conference
with the ambassador. Mr. Bryan Is
scheduled to appear before the senate
contnilttee on foreign relations further
to in. sent the administrations plan
for a protectorate over Nicaragua but
on the same occasion It Is expected
that Kb will be asked to outline the
developments toward a Mexican pol-
icy. Members of the committee as
well as the senate generally are well
inclined toward some executive ac-
tion by which all factions In the Mexi-
can dispute can get arms from the
It was apparent tonight that the
present policy of the administration
was to prevent all shipments of arms
to either side pending a final deter-
mination on this point.
United States Seeks Nothing.
It Is believed that after the presl.
dent and Secretary Bryan have ob-
tained from Ambassador Wilson his
own ideas and Interpretations of the
political situation In the Mexican cap-
ital the American government' In a
measure wlil reiterate views expressed
in the Laitln-American statement
made by President Wilson shortly aft-
er bis Inauguration in which he pro-
claimed that the United States had
nothing to 'seek in Latin-America but
the welfare of its sister republics.
With this in mind the recent sugges-
tfon of an American offer of media-
tion may be followed as evldenoe of
the good Intentions of the Washington
government. Information from fed-
eral as well as Constitutionalist
sources today however was to the ef-
fect that neither side would consider
mediation by a foreign government.
The national pride of the Mexicans It
was pointed out would not allow In-
terference In internal polities.
WUl Lay Down the Bars.
If It develops that the overtures of
the United States toward peace were
not favorably received. It Is expected
ttuu the Washington government will
thereupon pronounce Itself on the
question of arms and ammunition. In
all probability lifting the embargo so
that all sides can buy munitions' of
war. Such a development. It la be-
lieved. In many quarters here would
so strengthen the Constitutionalist
cause so aa to bring matters to a cri-
sta speedily and possibly a quick over-
throw of the Huerta govern moat a
contingency which many Washington
officials believe Is Inevitable although
reports of a strengthening of the fed-
eral armies are being advanced con-
stantly by officials of the Huerta ad-
ministration. THOU. HIND NOT PRISONER

for a half-day
to-Washington trip In response to -a
summons from President Wilson
Henry Lane Wilson American am-
bassador to Mexico announced his
emphatic opposition to several plans
under consideration by the state de-
partment for bringing about peace In
the troubled Mexican republic.
Supplementing statements he made
earlier in the day disapproving the
suggestions of American mediation or
the appointment of a tripartite com-
mission. Mr. Wilson gave his reasons
tonight why he considered the plan
for a tripartite commission not a
Abstndon Monroe Doctrine.
"If we are to consider such a plan
we may as well abandon the Mon-
roe doctrine entirely" he said.
"The Monroe doctrine pledges" ths
United Slates to take care of the In-
terests of American governments
without the aid of any foreign coun-
try. Consequently In the Monroe
dootrlne we cannot attempt to settle
Mexico's affairs through the services
of such a body as the proposed tri-
partite commission since It Involves
calling In outside governments to
Retiiient on Policy.
Mr. Wilson was reticent when
questioned as to his policies on Amer-
ican Intervention and recognition of
Mexico by the United States. These
views he said must be reserved for
his conference with President Wil-
son and Stcretary Bryan.
"I have been blamed for a great
deal" the ambassador commented as
he dlscpased his administration In
The ambaaaador' silence regard-
ing his Opinion as to American rec-
ognition was .broken tonight long
enough for him to comment on one of
his acts just subsequent to the over-
throw of Madero. Mr. Wilson recall-
ed that this act was Interpreted In
many quarters as virtual recognition
notwithstanding the refusal of his
government at Washington to admit
the republic on a .dlplomatlo-efootlng
common with other governments.
in February when Huerta became
provisional president the ambassador
Instructed American consuls In Mex-
ico "In the Interests of Mexico to
urge general submission and adhesion
to the government which will be rec-
ognised by all foreign governments
Mr. Wilson said a wrong construc-
tion would he placed upon this ad-
vice to consular officers by any per-
son who belioved it meant that he
recognized the Huerta government or
that he desired to conflict In any way
with the policies of either Mr. Taft
as president or President Wilson.
Believes He Was Right
"It was the defacto government
only that I recognised." Mr. Wilson
explained. "The defacto government
that possessed the power to offer
protection for American lives and
property and for the lives and prop-
erty of other foreigners. I acted as
any ambassador had the right to act
in the Interests of my countrymen.
The government I recognised was
the only existing one of law and order.

President Huerta's Reign Is

Washington July 15. The Huerta
government In Mexico is on the verge
of collapse. The same disaster that
overtook the relgnn of Dlas and Mu-

paratively a few days when llTrelua
