Thomas D. McCarthy, formerly secretary
to the Ambassador, now United States
Marshal In New York, vlrtted Joseph
Tumulty, the President's recretary, to

The conference probably will be to
morrow or Tuesday, because on Wednes
day the President leaves for Chicago It
had been Intended that he should make
only one speech, but requests for more

President will comply. He Is to partici
pate In several entertainments
The reply of Great Urltaln and Franco
to the United States protest on the
seizure of neutral malls was rend care
fully by Mr. Wilson, hut he refused to
comment on any of Its phases. Senitor

Statement Dealing With
Situation in Mexico.
SAYS ANARCHY EXISTS
Trouble Over Monroe Doctrine
Seen if Policy Isn't Changed
Washington, Oct. 18. A charts that
tho course President Wilson Is steering
will end In war la made the basis of a
statement Issued here to-night by Will
iam II. Wlllcox, chairman of the Repub
lican National Committee.
"Any man," says tho Republican
chairman, "who may have been favor
ably disposed toward President Wilson
by the contention that 'he has kept us
out of war If he will but survey the po
sltlon of the United States nnd think for
himself will be convinced that Mr, Wil
son Is following a cnurso which must
Inevitably lead this nation Into war.
"That Mr. Wilson's courso In Mexico
must Inevitably result In a situation
which will make war not only with
Mexico hut with European nations un
escapable must be evident to any one
who will give the subject careful consid

United States. Is now In control of Mex
ico city, but his authority Is constantly
disputed and defied.
VIIU Stilt a Menace.
"Villa still lives and constitutes a per
sistent menace to Carranxa, as he will to
any one else who becomes head of the
do facto Governmant. Mexico has been
developed almost entirely by foreign
capital and rarely does a week pass that
the Ambassadors of foreign Powers do
not knock at tho door of the White
limine demanding for their citizens In
Mexico u protection which Carranta
cannot give them If he would, a reim
bursement for losses which Carranxa Is
unable to make If ha would.
"So great has been the Injury worked
upon the persons and property of for
eigners that Mexico has become the
debtor of every European nation, and
she nccr can n.iv her 1aM nmii v.u.

No progress has leeh made under Car
ranza. It Is futile to contend there
has. Secretary Ijinslng's last long
communication to Carrnnz.i affords suf
tlclent evldenco of that fact. Conditions

"What then Is to become of this situa
