WILSON'S SPECIAL MESSAGE ON
THE SITUATION IN MEXICO.
"We can afford to exorcise the restraint of a great nation, real,
izing our strength, but scorning to use, it.
"We should advise everyone exercising authority in Mexico
that we are watching vigilantly the fortunes of those Americana
who are unable to leave the country and that we intend to hold
to a reckoning anyone who causes them suffering or loss.
"What we do must be rooted in patience and done with calm
and disinterested deliberation. Impatience on our part would
be childish and fraught with every risk of wrong and folly."
(By Federal Wireless Telegraph.)
WASHINGTON, August 27. (Special to The Advertiser) President
Wilson pliiyed his trump cut il in the Mexican situation today
when lie appeared at ten o'clock in the house of representatives and
read to a joint session of congress a special message on the situation
('""wing out of the assassination of President Madero and the
Assumption of power by Victoriano lUiertn. '
The President's message advised that all Americans be urgently
urged to leave Mexico immediately, that Mexico be informed that
exemplary punishment will follow if American lives are endangered
and that the Mexican factions be permitted to fight out their
troubles. The President says he must prohibit shipment of arms to
both Mexican Federals and rebels to insure the neutrality of the
Failure of Lind.
The failure of John Lind's negotiations was reported by the
but he said the door still was not closed to further peace
The President regards the situation as critical.
Friendship for Mexican People. tH
His address to congress breaths friendship to the Mexican people,
but extreme pessimism concerning the outlook for immediate
peace because Iluerta had rejected the American plan of mediation.
In part the President said :
. "Itis my duty to lay before you fully and without reservation,
1he factsieoucerning our present relations with Mexico. 1 do not
need to describe the deploniblo position of Mexican affairs, but it
is my duty to speak most frankly of what the United States government
has done and what I should seek to do in fulfillment of our
obligations to Mexico as a friend and neighbor and also as to the
American citizens whose lives and
Must Be Sternly Patient.
"What we do must be rooted in patience and done withfejubn and
disinterested deliberation. Impatience on our part would lie
and fraught with every risk of wrong and folly. We can afford
to exercise the restraint of a great nation, realizing our strength,
but scorning to use it. It was our duty to offer assistance; now it
is our duty to show what neutrality will do to enable the Mexicans
toset their affairs in order and to await further opportunity to offer
"The door is not closed to a resumption of negotiations upon
Mexico's initiative course.
Must Take No 'Unnecessary Risks. ,
"WJiile we wait, the contest of the rival forces undoubtedly for
a while will be sharper than ever, because it is plain that an end
must be made to the existing situation, and with the included
danger to non-combatants we should urge all Americans to
leave Mexico immediately. To assist them as far as possible, not
because we menu to slacken our offer to safeguard their livesit is
imperative that we take no unnecessary risks.
"We should advise everybody exercising authority in Mexico, in
the most unequivocal fashion, that wo are. watching vigilantly the
foi tunes of these Americans who are unable to leave the country
fnd that we intend to hold to a reck on inn nnvone wlih phukhs iluuii

No Arms for Either Side.
"It is duty to exercise the
my authority conferred on me by the
l..w of March 4. I'.M'J, and to see that neither side receives assistance
fiom the American side of the border. I shall forbid all exportation
of ai ins and ammunitions of war from any part of the United
States to Mexico, the policy suggested by precedents mid dictated
by manifested considerations of expediency."
What Lind Told Huerta.
The President proceeded to explain at length that Lind's instructions
emphasized the disinterestedness of the United States, this
country's anxiety to preserve Mexican independence and the entire
absence of influence by any personal, property or political interest.
What Huerta Said in Reply.
The Picsident then set forth that Huerta 's reply, through Foreign
Minister tliiinl.oa, said the Dictator realized that 'the American
were intended to be friendly, otherwise they would have been
.immediately rejected on account of their humiliating character.
Huerta refused to promise that he would not be a candidate for
the presidency, asserted that pacification of the country was pro.
ceeding and refused the proposal for an armistice on the ground that
lie must punish outlaws now in the field.
Gamhoa's note, the President said, urged American neutralitv,
recognition of Huerta as President and, while deploring the tension
with America, denied that Mexico was responsible therefore.
