TAFT AND DIAZ IU FELICITATION PRESIDENTS OF TWO GREAT NA TIONS MEET ON BORDER. LAND. ASSURANCES OF FRIENDSHIP, PERSONAL AND NATIONAL, LAVISHLY EXCHANGED. MUCH POMP ATTENDS FORMALI TIES—MEXICAN EXECUTIVE GIVES BANQUET. El Paso, Texas, Oct. 17—The long expected meeting between Presidents Taft and Diaz occurred yesterday. Outwardly, it was attended by a dis play of soldiery, the boom of cannon, and a pomp suggestive of supreme authority; but in the actual hand clasp of the two executives and in the exchange of courteous words, there was a simple and cordial informality. President Diaz assured President Taft of his warm personal regard and high esteem of the man who accom plished so much in the Philippines, Cuba and elsewhere, now honored by being chief executive. President Taft declared that he was glad to know' the president of such a great nation, the president who tad made that nation so great.

The ceremonies shifted back and forth across the shallow Rio Grande between the little American city and the Mexicai settlement of Ciudad Juarez. In the customs house there, Presi dent Diaz received President Taft’s return call, and last evening enter tained the American executive and a large party at a banquet, which In lavish decorations, wealth of silver plate, handed down from the time of Emperor Maximilian, and every detail, was probably the most notable feast ever served on the American continent.

Taft was received at the Mexican end of the bridge by all Mexican troops and was paid the same honors that Diaz had received. The adobe walls of Juarez were hung with the flags of Mexico and the Unit ed States. The route to the cus ora house was a continuous court of honor. At the banquet last night the two presidents sat together. Their con versation was partly Spanish, as Pres ident Taft retains much Spanish gained in the Philippines. The speeches of both were delivered as toasts. President Diaz’ words were repeated in English to the Americans, President Taft’s in Spanish to the Mexicans. President Diaz said: “The courtesy of this visit will be a happy precedent for the Latin-Amer ican republics to cultivate constant, cordial relations among themselves and with all the countries of this con tinent. Inspired by these sentiments I toast the hope that the court of the immortal Washington always will en joy ail the happiness and prosperity justly corresponding to the intelligent activity and high civil qualities char acterizing the manly and cultured American people, and for the ever lasting glory of its heroic founders. 1 toast the personal happiness of its il lustrious president, whose manifesta tion of friendship will contribute to cultivate the common interests bind ing the neighboring countries whose el ments of life and progress are re ciprocally completed and magnified by association.” When President Taft had arisen and the cheering had subsided he said: “Responding as befits this most au spicious occasion, I express in behalt of the people of the United States the admiration and esteem for the illus trious president of Mexico ar.d hearty sentiments of friendship wherewith my countrymen regard the Mexican people. The people of the United States respect and honor the Mexi cans for their patriotic devotion, en ergy and advancement in industrial development and moral happiness. “The aims and ideals of the two nations are identical, their sympathy is mutual and lasting and the world can be assured of a vast neutral zone of peace wherein the controlling aspi ration of either nation is individual happiness, “I drink to the president of this great republic, his continued long life and happiness and a never-ending bond of mutual sympathy between Mexico and the United States.” President Taft returned here in a blaze of artificial light "with an escort which changed at the international j bridge from Mexican to American. The Maximilian silver and gold; service used at the banquet is valued at $1,000,000 and the cut glass at $200,000.
