, ' less) -Resolved by tha senate and the house of representatives; that
the President of ths United States is justified in the employment
ef the armed forces of the United States to enforce the djmanda
made npon Victoriano Huerta for ncequivocaj amends to the ov,:
rnment of the United States for Vffrcnt3 and. indjefr.itics committed
against tixiz government by General Iluert& and his rer-.senlatives.
. . This is the text of the joint resolution oifered in .both tho senate
and house yesterday when they met in separate session after a joint T
session at which President Wilson in a brief message laid the Mex
lean situation before the senators and representatives and requested
permission to use the armed forces of the government in such a man
ner or extent as may be deemed necessary to obtain from President
Huerta and his adherents the fullest recognition of the rights, and
dignity of the United States. ,','.v - .' , v
PRESIDENT DECLARES HE DOES NOT WISH FOR WAR.
, The President stated that he did not wish for war, as the. admin
istration had nothing' but the most friendly feelings towards Mex
ico and wished to aid in every possible manner the Republic to the
south. . ;.' ' . 1 . : ."' ':. ', ' ' rlZ$
However, he declared that he felt, because of certain indignities
committed against the United States that the. administration was
justified in asking for the employment of the armed forces of the
government to obtain amends for the indignities. ; The President
was loudly cheered on several occasions during his presentation of
, the situation to the joint houses. : . . ,-' . ; :, . "
. RESOLUTION IS QUICKLY PASSED IN HOUSE. ' ' ' .
On reconvening in separate session, the house quickly passed the
joint resolution which had been prepared for presentation by the
, chairmen of the two committees on foreign relations, though a brisk
- debate ensued. . Th vote was 337 to 37. : . .
..The senate committee on foreign relations, however, debated the
resolution until a late hour last night when it was announced that
the committee had agreed upon a resolution which eliminated Huer
ta's name but which set forth that in view of certain indignities
committed againBt the United States that the President wa justified
in the employment of armed forces to obtain amends. The resolu
tion disclaims specifically any hostility toward the Mexican people
or the purpose of making war on them. Before the senate adjourned
last night it was agreed that the resolution would be considered at
noon today. . - ,'.-.
' Senator Lodge announced that he would offer a substitute to the
preamble of the resolution setting forth a general outline of the
, crimes which he holds impels the President to action.'
NATIONAL GUARD IS PRESSED INTO REGULAR SERVICE.
' Though the President did not a'sk for an appropriation or that the
National Guard of the country be pressed into service, both the sea
ate and house passed a volunteer army bill first introduced in the
house which provided that the militia of the entire United States
is subject to service as a part of the regular army organisation and
that the entire National Guard be taken over bodily with its of
ficers. '. ;''' . ;.
In the house of representatives, Congressman Chamberlain intro-
dnced a bill appropriating $50,000,000 which is identical with that
; passed prior to the Spanish War, ; . ;
EARLY SEIZURE OF LARGE PORTS IS PREDICTED. ;
Though no further orders to the Army-and Navy were announced
; last night following a conference between President Wilson, Secre
tary of State Bryan, Secretary of War Garrison, Secretary of the
Navy Daniels, Special Envoy John Lind, General Leonard Wood
and Admirals B. R Fiske and Victor Blue, it being stated that action
' was deferred until congress acts finally on the joint resolution ap
proving the use of armed forces against Huerta, a high official in
the administration. announid that within forty-eight hours the Unit
ed States will have seizd the Mexican customs houses at Vera Cms
r?j Tampico. This belief is borne out by the fact that all merchant
vessels in the two harborr have been ordered to leave and the women
;and children in the two cities are being taken on board ships as
