Washington, Aug. 13. Henry Lane
Wilson precipitated himself Into the
Mexican situation ngalu to-. lay when he
gave out a statement In nnswer to that
made by the Hrltlsh Foreign Ofllce on
Monday In explanation of Great Britain's
attitude In recognizing the Huerta Ad
ministration. The Ambassador was angered by the
reference 111 the Urltlsh statement to a
speech which he made on behalf of tho
diplomatic corps at Mexico city at a re
ception to provisional President Huerta
soon after his Inauguration.
After Miylng that the Hrltlsh recogni

"The French and German Governments
also recognized President Huerta after a

party, at which a congratulatory speech

It was the Intimation whiih Mi. Wilson
saw in tills last sentence that the so
called "tougratiilatory spieeh" by him
had had something to do with the recog
nition of Huerta by France and Germany
and by Great Hrltalti that aroused his lie.
In his statement this afternoon .Mr. Wil
son denied ab.-olutely that the policy of
all) of the tluee Poweis named had been
In any way nlfected by his speech and lie
alo disclaimed responsibility for the
"congratulatory - tone of the speech Itself.

He said that not only had he lefuse.l
to assume the responsibility foi drawing
the address which he deliteie.1 for the
diplomatic corps but that the uddrtss
actually was written by the Hrltlsh and
Spanish Ministers The address appeared,
he said, as the expression -of the views of
the entire corps, none of whose ronci'U
nietits had at that time recoRiih.e.l Huerta.
The Ambassador points out th.it for
more than a month after tho itceptlon re
ferred to the Hrltlsh Government main
tained an attitude of hostility to Huerta
and Hint when recognition llnully was ac
corded It came as a distinct reversal of

Aside ftntii Ihe general lntei.-st which
attached to expression of Mr Wilson
b.aiing on Mexico theie was speculation
as to the , xtenl lo which Great lliit.iln
might be dl " -'''' I ho"l the State De
partment esK.nslhle for the utterance of
the ie tiring Ambassador. It was m-alb-d
that Mr. Wilson's teslgniitioii was ac
cepted by the President to take elT.ct
October H and that until that date he is
to be on a leave of absence subject to the
orders of the Sectelary of State.
j The Ambassador himself was of the
i opinion that Id" statement would be le
j gnrded b the Foreign otllce and In the
jstate Depaitinent as meielj th- expiesslcu

I In oltlcial c'.i.ies heie It was pointed out
