Henry Lane Wilson precipitated himself Into the Mexican situation ngalu to-. lay when he gave out a statement In nnswer to that made by the Hrltlsh Foreign Ofllce on Monday In explanation of Great Britain's attitude In recognizing the Huerta Ad ministration. The Ambassador was angered by the reference 111 the Urltlsh statement to a speech which he made on behalf of tho diplomatic corps at Mexico city at a re ception to provisional President Huerta soon after his Inauguration. After Miylng that the Hrltlsh recogni tion of Huerta had been meiely the recog nition of a pioiisional President pending an election the statement of the Foreign oitlce F.tld . "The French and German Governments also recognized President Huerta after a reception by him of tho whole diplomatic party, at which a congratulatory speech was made In their behalf by the Ameri can Ambassador" It was the Intimation whiih Mi. Wilson saw in tills last sentence that the so called "tougratiilatory spieeh" by him had had something to do with the recog nition of Huerta by France and Germany and by Great Hrltalti that aroused his lie. In his statement this afternoon .Mr. Wil son denied ab.-olutely that the policy of all) of the tluee Poweis named had been In any way nlfected by his speech and lie alo disclaimed responsibility for the "congratulatory - tone of the speech Itself. llldti'l W rite It, He Sii. He said that not only had he lefuse.l to assume the responsibility foi drawing the address which he deliteie.1 for the diplomatic corps but that the uddrtss actually was written by the Hrltlsh and Spanish Ministers The address appeared, he said, as the expression -of the views of the entire corps, none of whose ronci'U nietits had at that time recoRiih.e.l Huerta. The Ambassador points out th.it for more than a month after tho itceptlon re ferred to the Hrltlsh Government main tained an attitude of hostility to Huerta and Hint when recognition llnully was ac corded It came as a distinct reversal of poll. ) .

It was m-alb-d that Mr. Wilson's teslgniitioii was ac cepted by the President to take elT.ct October H and that until that date he is to be on a leave of absence subject to the orders of the Sectelary of State. j The Ambassador himself was of the i opinion that Id" statement would be le j gnrded b the Foreign otllce and In the jstate Depaitinent as meielj th- expiesslcu ! of his personal views. I In oltlcial c'.i.ies heie It was pointed out that the British Foreign Ulllce alie.idy is it ware that Mr Wtlon no longer r.-pn- Is.-nts the I'lilted States diplomatically and that probably no disclaimer will be iiee.li.l that he tlun not ncak for this Govern ment.
