WASHINGTON, March 5 Interest
in the Mexican situation warmed up
here today, with the arrival of Felix
Diaz, who helped Huerta overthrow
Madero and later fled from Vera Cruz
because of fear of Huerta. It is gen
erally supposed he desires to appear
before the senate foreign relations
committee, and Chairman Shively, act
ing chairman of the committee, said
that Diaz will be heard if he wishes.
Senator Works of California will ad
dress the senate tomorrow on the Mex
ican situation, while Senator Fall of
Xew Mexico will discuss the subject
on Saturday.
Secretary Bryan appeared before the
house committee on foreign affairs,
and answered questions about condi
tions in Mexico. Some members of the
committee said he made a favorable
impression, and that resolutions call

.Branches of Congress and
Asks Amendment of the
Measure He Savs Vio

Some Republicans Criticise
Executive and Point to
His Pre-election Speech
Against Talkimr One AV.i v
and Voting Another
dent Wilson pleaded before congress
for the repeal of the clause in the
canal act exempting American coast
wise shipping from Panama
tolls. He tersely asserted that every
where except in the United States
the proposed exemption is regarded as
a violation of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty, and further asked it in sup
port of the administration's irenpr:il
.......... ..-.n.. i..u general
f'"viKn I'olic.v. That the president's
m,,"'st l)e S"1"' there seemed
to be )itt,e auM. despite the fact
there will be vigorous opposition
ootn nouses of congress.
An amendment was introduced in
the senate today, giving the presi
dent the authority to make or sus
pend tolls by proclamation, and put
ting it squarely up to the president
to eliminate the exemption. The
president said later that no partic
ular thing caused him to read his
message except that doubt existed in
some quarters of congress as to how
strongly he was convinced of the
necessity of the repeal of the act.
The president's laneuatre in his
speech was commented on widely, par
I ticularly as no communication he has
; yet addressed to congress carried
1 "graver or more far-reaching implicu
; t-iisoa to he interest of the country,"
I the interpretation placed on the
j treaty elsewhere, anil the concluding
j statement as to "other matters of
even greater kli.aey and nearer con-
j sequence."
The president told callers that a
j nation which believed the t'nited
. States will not keep a treaty promise
l on so important a treaty as this is
! not liable to expect sincerity on other
delicate questions.
The president also told cullers that
the phrases had no significance be
yond bearing on the tolls questiohs,
and i;s evidence of unwavering good
faith on all other questions, and that
nothing critical is pending in foreign
He said, while he had never re
ceived formal communications on the
subject, he understood other European
nations generally took the same view
as Great F.ritain. Word had come to
the president of the general impres
sion in Europe that the United States
was "sailing as close, to the wind as J
possible" in interpreting the promises
made in the treaties. Xo pressure
had been brought to bear by any na
tion to emphasize this view.
Senator Shively, chairman of the
foreign relations committee, said the
administration inherited many for
eign problems, and it was necessary
that foreign relations be readjusted.
"This is what I think he had in
mind in reference to other matters.'
Some senators are inclined to believe j
that the ( Hilton amendment would
leave congress open to the charge
that it attempted to dodge the issue
flatly placed before it by the presi
dent." Some of the leaders in congress, in
cluding .Majority Leader Underwood
of the house, who oppose the repeal,
had no comment to make.
Many senators and congressmen
praised the message. Others indicat
ed that they would support the re
peal, although they did not agree with
the president's position.
"I voted for toll exemption," said
Senator Kern, democratic leader in
the spnsite "If I voto for r.rfnil it
would not be because I have changed !
my views. I don't believe that toll
exemption violates the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty. If I support the presi
dent's request, I would do so because
of his dosire for congress to support
his foreign policy, and for the fur- i
ther reason that in questions of this
kind, where there are any doubts as to
the Interpretation of treaties, the for-
eigner should be given the benefit of
the doubt."
Representative Evans of Montana.
republican member of the committee.
telegraphed yesterday he would be on
record in favor of the repeal of the
bill at the committee meeting tomor
