LONDON, November 11. (By
Associated Press Cable) Premier
Asquith devoted a good portion
of his address at the Lord
Mayor's banquet here last night
to a discussion of the situation in
Mexico. He declared that the La-tin
Republic is in the throes of a
civil war and, despite the reports
to the contrary, Great Britain has
never considered the advisability
of political intervention in the affairs
of that country.
Ho was followed by Rt. Honorable
Winston Churchill, first lord
of the admiralty, who stated that
the naval projrram of Great Britain
for the corning 'year is greater
than last. Thi3 means that -the
"naval holiday" program
informally by the Powers will
probably not be carried out.
An address by the Japanese
was steeped with expressions
of goodwill for Great Britain.
The Japanese Ambassador
denisd the truth of rumors that
the Anglo-Japanese alliance had
