Governor Klnton is said to have asked that tliey be not proseeuted. but tlie ollicials do not seem to be inclined to be so lenient.

Time does not seem to be solving the Mexican problem, nor has President Wilson been able to decide just what shall be the course of the United States towards that revolution cursed country. Instead of the rival factions getting together they seem to be even farther apart than ever. Caranza and Zapata are lighting for the possession of the city of Mexico. For about two weeks this city has been cut off from communication with the outside world. At last accounts conditions in the city were bordering on anarchy, and rioting was prevalent. Grave fears are entertained for the safety of the foreigners who are there. The United States have been brought more directly into touch with Mexican affairs during the last few days than at any previous time. Victoriana lluerta, the one time president of that country according to the claims of one of the warring factions, has been in this country for some time. lie and several other Mexicans have been arrested and are held by the United States government at 101 I'aso.

The American government declares that, inasmuch as Germany has admitted liability for the sinking of the Frye under the treaty of 182S. prize court proceedings are unnecessary, and not binding upon the I'nited States. Aside from the question of how the indemnity should he paid, the note brings out clearly the refusal of the I'nited States to accept the contention that Germany has a right to stop the feirrvtncr /u /u>ni r.. S... ml ! . . *. ' ships "by the destruction of the contraband and the ship carrying it." While no mention of submarine warfart was made in either the last German note or the present reply, occasion was taken to deny this right, because of a belief that admission of it now might in the future be used as a justification for submarine attacks on American ships. Another English ship has been sunk by a German submarine, and the lives of twenty Americans have been lost. The ship was the Armenian, and was T 11 K I' i; K S \\ V T K l? I A . . i ' i . 1.1 1 .
