WILSON WONT TAKE IMMEDIATE
ACTION IN MEXICO
Washington, July 31. The Senate
foreign relations committee is inclin
ed to side with Henry Lane Wilson,
ambassador to Mexico, in his demand
fpr recognition of the Huerta gov
ernment in that country.

would be assassinated by persons de
siring authority, who would be able
to set up a de facto government after

tration and the Senate Democrats

for immediate action in the Mexican
crisis by the administration from the

tion would cost He knows it would
take at least five years even to sub

knows that doing this would take an
enormus American army, and that
the subduing of the regulars would
not be the end. There would be years
and years of guerilla warfare. He
knows that Mexican soil would run
red with American blood long before
the conquest of Mexico could be completed.
