War and Navy Department's
Plans Are Being Rushed
Washington, I. f The one dangel
to be apprehended In the Mexican slt
nation, which might certainly result
in the launching of an army of inva
sion, would bo the commission of some
nets iu Mexico that would endanger
the lives ot foreign dtiVna and Amer
icans'. Having assured the diplomatic rep
resentatives in Washington of the dis
position nnd ability of this govern
ment to protect their nationnls In
Mexico iu the Fame degree as Ameri
cans, the government has assumed an
obligation that cannot be Ignored.
Therefore, any nttack upon foreign
ers by the tacit consent of the Huerta
government, or even the exhibition to
ward them of mob violence clearly be
yond the ' ability of the provisional
government to prevent, probably
would be the signal for active inter
vention. Situation Now Most Tense.
The killing of Francisco I. Madero
and Pino Suarez after Gen. Huerta
had assured American Ambassador
Wilson of the safety of his prisoners
from Just bu h attacks, treated a
painful Impression iu administration
When the first feeling of surprise
had passed, it was realized by officials
that this lost tragic event had ndded
greatly to the gravity of the situation
and undoubtedly had placed an addi
tional strain upon the already tense
relations between this government
nnd that In the Mexican capital.
Still, as President Taft himself de
clared, the event in Itself was not suf
ficient to demand any departure from
the policy of strict nonintervention,
which so far has governed his admin
istration. Probably the Immediate result will
be to hasten tho military and naval
preparations in order "to have the sol
diers, sailors nnd marines ready to an
swer a call for instant embarkation
if- further developments in Mexico
should demand their employment.
The administration officials feel
that they have discharged their full
!ltles nnd exhausted their constitu
tional powers In the orders they have
given or planned for the preparation ol
a sufficient military and naval force
to Insure a successful entry to the
Mexican capital In case of need.
It is practically certain that beyonfl
this point the executive would not
proceed except upon direct instruc
tions from cougress, as toe exhibition
of military force beyond the seacoast
towns of Mexico might be regarded us
an act of war, which, under the con
