In that connection recent Mexican ac-1 tlvlties in Spain are receiving attention nnd considerable matter characterized as Mexican propaganda Is being observed In the Spanish press. The important part taken by Mexicans in the Spanish ccle brntion of tho discovery of America last month also hns been reported. Meanwhile the activities of a German mlrslon In Mexico are closc'y being ob jerved. Attempts by tho Mexican gov ernment at confiscation of mines and oil wells, with un nnnounced view to their nationalization are being closely exam ined In comparison with Germany's need ior tho so products. m .TvYrrr. 4m nprmnifr, 1 JjAJMNM.)
