LONDON, Aur. 19. "I am now

"My friends In Mexico are working in

Diplomatic Situation Unchanged.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 30.-The Mexican
situation was unchanged today; John
Llnd, President Wilson's personal envoy,
still was waiting at Vera Cruz, and no
advices of his plans bad come to yasu
lnglon. Secretary Bryan, returning to town for
a few hours from an over-night lecture
tour, left again, for another, to return
tomorrow. Secretary Tumulty left for a
week-end wltn his family In New Jersey.
With President Wilson at the summer
capital at Cornish, arrangements were
made to transmit any important develop
ments to him there.
Mr. Bryan, after receiving a message
from Mr. Llnd, declared the sttuatl6n un
changed. Mr. Llnd still is acting on his
own dlsi..'ctton about returning to Mexico
Mar kins Time.
Indications pointed strongly to the view
that the policy of tho United States for
the next few -days will be a waiting one,
while strict neutrality is enforced and
Americans are urged , to leave Mexico.
Those who take that view, point to" Pres.
4dent Wilson's declaration" to congress In
his address that the actual situation ot
the authorities' at Mexico City will pre
sently be revealed, and that "steady pres
