TO FINANCE THE
To Confer With McAdoo
About Funds to Back a
A It C CONFERENCE
MAY HE UKOKEN VI
South Aniericnn Nations
Said to Oppose Armed
TVabiiinotov, Aug. 7, Secretary of
FUte Imslng left Washington to-night
for New York, where he will have a
conference to-morrow with Secretary of
the Treasury McAdoo. This conferenco
may have an Important bearing on the
plans of the Administration and the six
lAtln American representatives with
whom It l.i cooperating In denting with
the Mexican tiltuatlon.
Since the Administration has renewed
U efforts toward constructive progress
In Mexico It has been fully realised
that ultimately the financial question
In Mexico would lie of even greater Im
portance than the military aspect of lite
It Is appreciated hy Administration
officials that this Government In pur
pojlus lo lend Its active support to
tome new government In Mexico must
undertake to tlnd for It the necessary
funds with which It may maintain Itself
and resume meeting Mexican Interna
tional tlnanclal obligation.
These considerations have already tig
tired in l'ic dellbeiutlons of the Pan
Amerlran conferences at Washington
this ween and are expected to receive
even greater attention as the plan for
Mexico develops further. It has been
ussestcd that Mr. McAdoo. as the Sec
retary of ths Treasury and In constant
touch with the lltiancml Interests of the
countr.v. would he the logical man
throjsh whom the matter might be prc
scnKd, In a preliminary way, to the
banker to whom the Administration
must look for money for Mexico.
Tiill.nl With President.
Mr M"Ailon visited the President at
Coral. h th!s week, and It Is afsumcd
thai thu Pie.t'dcnt discussed with hlin
urn aspects of the Mexican problem as
would call for the cooperation of the
bectetary of the Treasury.
While Secretary Ionising would nu
tr.ome mi anniiuiicemenl to-day. It was
understood that a draft of the com
ii.iniiiatlon In which the L'nlted Stales
..nd the Latin American Governments
nre to app-al to the Mexican people to
untie In the establishment of a gov
ernment wan sent to President Wilson
for his approval.
No further action with respect to the
situation Is looked for here until the
President has passed upon the matter
submitted to him following the two
days i (inference at the State Depart
ment and nuthorlzed the sending 01
the l'nlted States communication. It
la thought that by Monday, when Mr.
l-msing will bo back at his desk, every
thing will be In shnpe for taking this,
the first step In the concerted plan for
mlvlng the .Mexican problem.
The six Latin American rcpresentn
t es scattered to their summer resi
liences to-d.iy, It Is understood that
they hae referred the draft of a sum
mons to tint Mexican people to unite
In their Governments. It was regarded
ii significant that the United States
siould have, asked these Governments
to innnmiiilcutn with the Mexican people
f-'paratcly, rather than Join the United
r'tatta hi a single appeal.
This Indicates, It Is believed, that the
ft ion between the United States and
tlie Latin American Governments Is to
I" cooperatlw rather than combined;
taat the Administration will not seek
to make theao Governments actual par
l ipants In the aitlnn of the United
Hates, but only supporters of It,
This procedure. It Ik thought, will hava
the advantage of leaving any of the
l.ati American Governments free to do
(bi)lutcly as it pleases and will also
prevent the United States from being
tampered In its Independence of action.
