Hyde Special Coble to T>? 3 rOntne ?PcpjrrUtht. 19-0. New York Tribune Ino. MEXICO CITY, Sept. 2.?Mexico has ??a? formal inquiries of all other na? tions as to whether diplomatic rela? tions are considered interrupted, sus? pended or broken off. The government within the last week has instructed all Its diplomats in foreign capitals to ob? tain a definition of the present status as it is understood by the other gov? ernments. ' Cuthberw? Hidalgo, acting .Minister ef Foreign Relations, said to-day that Guatemala' was the only one specifi? cally mentioning outright recognition. Se?or Hidalgo declared that all gov? ernments are carrying on business ?jrith the new Mexican government without interruption, and therefore he does not consider the question of recognition as one needing immediate consideration. "The fact that somewhat of an ab? normal situation has existed is possi? bly best for Mexico, since it has pre? vented foreign governments making demands on the De la Huerta govern nent at a time when we were not pre? pared to meet them," said Se?or Hi? dalgo. The official asserted that relations between the United States and Mexico sever have been more cordial, adding that during the recent trouble with former Governor Cantu in Lower Cali? fornia Washington agreed to all re? quests and evidenced a disposition to assist in every way. President de la Huerta, discussing oil production in Mexico, said that the prospects were for the greatest production of any nation In the world this year, and that when fully de? veloped the taxes and royalties from the industry would cover almost the entire national budget. President de la Huerta opened the aew Mexican Congress yesterday^ with a bare quorum in the Senate and lower house. The President, in his message, men? tioned that extradition treaties be? tween the United States and Mexico are operative for the first time in ten years, and that mutual extraditions already have been granted. He said that the government is making every effort to extend full protection to the lives and interests of foreigners and also taking steps to obtain greater protection for Mexicans abroad. He added that the government is studying the meahs of paying indem? nities to foreigners for losses from various causes, including the taking over of funds by the government, un? paid debts and non-payment of inter? est f The executive reported the country at peace. All groups opposing the past r?gime have capitulated, although a few small bands of highwaymen are roaming, closely pursued by federal forces. He reported the discharge from army service of 700 officers and 28420 men, leaving a present strength of 130 regiments of cavalry, seventy-; ihre battalions of infantry and seven' regiments of field artillery, with cor? responding auxiliary arms. The President said the country is flourishing financially, as shown by exports and imports, which are rapidly increasing. \ Man, Freed by Bandit Zamora?

Congressmen at Kyoto Mayor Says Visitors and Natives Are Sons of the Gods * KYOTO, Japan, Sept. 2.?"The Amer? icans and the Japanese are equally sons of the gods and, therefore, the spirit of justice and love should rule both," said Kensuke Ando, Mayor of Kyoto, in an address at a largely at? tended gathering to welcome the visit? ing American Congressional party here yesterday. ' If his hearers, added the Mayor, glanced back at the history of Japan and America they would find that a settlement had been discovered for whatever issues had arisen between the two peoples. He urged the frankest exchange of views for the promotion of friendship so as to insure permanent peace. Kepresentativ?

Swedes Test Socialization Question Is Leading Issue in General Election STOCKHOLM, Sept. 2.?Socialization is the leading issue in the Swedish gen? eral election beginning Sunday. A committee was appointed several months ago to investigate the socializa? tion of Swedish industries, especially mines, water powers, forests and pri? vately owned railroads. Premier Branting has approached the problem cautiously, declaring that no socialization will be resorted to unless it is clearly shown that it would lead to increased production at low cost, in which case private plants would be bought out with interest bearing bonds, and tho process would be gradual. , Experiments in some lines, however, have proved that socialization resulted in economic failures, and they were only able to keep alivo by the taxpay? ers' support. ?
