Washington-. June 2.--President
Wilson served notion to-day on the
warring leaders In Mexico that they
must compost their differences "within
a very short time" by setting up a
government that the world In con
idencc may recognize or tho United
States will he constrained to take steps

There was no direct threat of armed
intervention In the President's decla
ration, but it Is generally recognized
that extreme measures of this charac
ter may ultimately bo necessary to
areomplish the President's purpose.
Mr. Wilson does not Indicate, Just
fihat course ho will follow If the Mexi
can leaders fall or refuse to comply
with his injunction, but It known thut
unless a provisional government Li es
tablished In Mexico within n. reason
able period the I'lilted States will lay
hands on the situation.
The President's new policy toward
Mexico wus to-day communicated to
(!en.. Carranza, Vllln, Zapata and
Garza tliroiiKh American diplomatic
(finals In Mexico. To each of them
was unt u copy of the President's pro
nouncement. It was not forwarded as
i diplomatic note, but merely as u
liatement of views intended to convey
n warning ad to the purpose of the
United States in the event of tho
fan ne of t.ie factional leaders to re
j'.ore i.rdir in Mexico.
Wnll Two Vrrk,
It is understood that the President

icr t'.e common good of tho country
an tmbirgo will be placed on the. ehlp'
merit of anus to Mexico.
Meantime the Administration will
try to locate a strong group of men to
take hold in Mexico during the period
of reconstruction. It will extend to
men men nil the moral support that
is possible toward setting up a constl
