President Huerta informed Ambas
sador Wilson that while Mr. Wilson
is welcome personally, he can hardly
expect to receive recognition as the
ambassador of a government which
had not recognized the government
with which he Is attempting to deal.
The effect which recognition of the
Huerta government would have on
conditions in Mexico was clearly dem
onstrated when it became known that
Governor Carranza, leader of the only
organized revolution in Mexico, tele
graphed instructions to his represen
tatives here to protest against consid
eration of recognition of Huerta.
Mrs. Francisco Madero, wtdow of
the former president of Mexico, is
now In Washington. Sho said, refer

not believe that traitor's government

that it is not necessary to return Mr.
Wilson to Mexico, the American em

of Secretary O'Shaughnessy. Thus
its status would correspond to that ot
