I saw that he was such a dirty, low
lived fellow that I did not like to have
anything to do with him."

Washington, May 13. Through
Secretary of State Knox, President
Taft yesterday 'authorized United
States Ambassador Lane Wilson in
Mexico City to deny in the most
pos'tive terms "all foolish stories"
of intervention in Mexico by the
United States. Secretary Knox's
telegram to Mr. Wilson, which also
is to be made public in Mexico, was
! sent following a session of the cabi
net in which the Mexican tangle took
up much of the time. It read:
"You are authorized officially to
deny, through the local press and
otherwise, as under Instructions to
do so, all foolish stories of Interven
tion, than which nothing could be
further from the intentions of the
government of the United States,
which has the sincereat friendship
for Mexico and the Mexican people,
to whom it hopes will soon return
the blessings of peace, which is not
concerned with Mexico's internal po
litical affairs and which demands
nothing but the respect and protec
tion of American life and property
in the neighboring republic. You
will use the language of this instruc
tion." BELGIAN SOLDIERS DROWN
