Waahlncton July If. Prrajltlent
Wilson and Secretary Bryan davotad
themselvas today to a study of the
voluminous reports at their disposal
on conditions In Maxico. Indications
were that with the appearance before
the Senate committee on foreign re-
lations tomorrow of Ambassador
Henry Lsxne Wilson the Isaac stage
In the program of the administration
to discover the facta of the situation
before announcing a policy would be
No Baate About Policy.
While a resolution In the house
called for a Joint committee to obtain
documents on the Mexican situation
and another in the Senate sought the
opinion of that body on the question
of recognising the belligerency of the
Constitutionalists administration of-
ficials again declared that there would
be no haste in formulating a definite
policy toward Mexico. Secretary
Bryan stated that no proposition for
mediation had been submitted to
either of tha two factions in Mexico
and incidentally remarked that he
might go back to the lecture plat-
form In a few days.
Succession of Alternatives- .
Some administration officials have
proposed that the American policy
be pursued along a succession of al-
ternatives. First they suggest refraining from
interference while the Mexican lead
era themselves endeavor to compose
their differences. The attitude of the
United States against recognizing the
Huerta administration already la be-
ing outlined In Mexico according to
reports here as Indicating that the ab-
dictation af Huerta In favor of a com-
promise provisional president Is In-
evitable. Second. should all efforts by the
Mexicans to adjust the dispute fall
it Is proposed by Influential members
of the senate that the embargo on
arms be lifted and the two factions
be permitted to obtain munitions of
war on an equality.
Third ahould peace be delayed the
suggestion la that the United States
offer to mediate through a commis-
sion. Fourth as a last resort a trl-parte
commission composed of representa-
tives of the United States and Latin-
American nations la suggested
lic-laratloii Prom flureta.
A declaration from President Huer-
ta that no American In Mexico shall
suffer Injustice or violence "with his
cognisance" was made putfllc by the
state department today In the follow-
"President Huerta has expressed
himself as regretting very much that
the American government should
ascribe to the influence of the Mexi-
can government any action which
might be construed ss antagonistic to
Americans during his occupancy of
executive authority and dealree the
state department to he assured that
no injustice or violence shall be done
to Americans with his cognisance
while he la In his present position.
"The Mexican consul at El Paso
has Informed the Mexican foreign of-
fice that the matter of the shooting
of Dixon has been satisfactorily ar-
ranged and It Is stated that the gov-
ernment at Mexico City aeema most
desirous of meeting the desires of the
United States in every way possible."
