WASHINGTON, D. Feb. 17. In a formal cabled reply to the me- -sage
from President Madero Mr. Taft today declared that It Is not neces
sary again for the United State to "relterata lis assurance of. good-will ta
the present government of Mexico. 'The. chief executive adds that he be
lieves. In view of the present situation, coming as It does as a climax to
nearly tw.o. year of constant disturbances, that the paramount duty cf
both countries la to find some prompt relief to the situation." ,
The message says: . -..'v r' -:'
' "resh assurances of the friendsh'p of this country; for Mexico, mutt
surely be unnecessary after two'yra of continuous proof ' of the patisncs
and oood will which the United State has for your country. .

in the. present dangerout situation, create In this ccun:ry, tne-rnstt ex- s
