There is a remarkable difference
between 'the diplomacy of Europe
and of the Inited States. If more
direct than circumspect, the record
will indicatvi.ethat the United States
has been successful in obtaining
what is right and fair in its dealing
with foreign nations. The diplo
mats of Europe have marveled at
the frankness and businesslike dip
lomacy of the United States. To be
a consummate diplomat of Europe
one must be a double-dealer, full of
what the French style "finese," the
art of misleading from the main is
sue, and the seeking of every ad
In the Mexican situation President
Wilson is developing a diplomacy
somewhat amazing to Europe, and
no less mystifying to Huerta. His
plan of action has been well con
ceived and is being executed delib
erately through Secretary of State
Bryan. The little of the plan en
trusted to Governor Lind, of which
the public have an inkling, has al
ready secured for President Wilson
the favorable view of England and
:.France and other powers of Europe.
a.As the President's programme is be
ng slowly developed, there is being
given him the "assurance of moral
and active support, if necessary,
hat Iwill relieve him of all embar
rassment and will give the govern
