Washington, Feb. 26.—Representa tive Kahn, republican, of California, in a speech in the hougejtida\^j^ pressed the hope that the adniinisii'f* tton's Mexican policy would soon give way to a new one which would bring about peace and tranquility in the: southern republic.

"The fact that it became necessary to issue a proclamation removing the embargo on arms to be shipped into Mexico," he said, "is practically an admission of the failure of the pollcy of watchful waiting." 'Deadly drifting,' Is a much more accurate description of the adminis tration's policy. And since the em bargo *lias been removed, what has happened? Additional murder and additional lawlessness, for which we are probably responsible." Representative Kahn urged that re newed efforts be made to restore peace in Mexico.
