AS A REFUGE
Light Draft Vessel Kept N ear
Shore and Available to
Any Person in Danger to be
Protected Future Action
Washington, Oct. 2S The gunboat
Wheeling, because of her light draft,
has been held at Vera Cruz with th
single purpose of affording refuse ;o
political fugitives as well as officials
of the Amerlran embassy or other
Americans or foreigners who might
be in distress. The Wheeling was
chosen for that particular purpose be
cause she was able to approach the
shore at Vera Cruz, whereas the big
battleships under Rear Admiral Flet
cher's command hate been obliged to
anchor six miles out.
Officials here say there is no ques
tion whatever of the right of a naval
commander to extend asylum to such
a fugitive as Diaz, as there have been
many precedents to support such ac
tion John Lind, President Wilson s
personal representative at Vera Cruz,
had been Instructed to offer asylum
to any citizen of Mexico or anv for

that the American government would

son in danger, who asked for it It
was pointed out that had former Pres
ident Madero taken reruge In the
American embassy in Mexico City lie
would have been protected.
The problem of what to do with
Diaz and his party, now that they are
out of Mexican territory, may be
solved, In the opinion of officials hero,
by permitting them to take passage
for Boine other land on a foreign ship.
They probably will not be permitted
to remain on the American warahlp.
