International Newg Service:
WASHINGTON'. May 21. Sen.
William Ah?en Smith, of Michigan,
in a vigorous speech in the senate
this afternoon, demanded action by
the administration to check pro
German activities in Mexico. He
charped that Mexico was " a hidinp
place for conspirators, anarchists
and sympathizers with our enemies."
Sen. Smith's remarks were called
forth by an article read into the
Becord at the request of Sen. Bran-
depee, of Connecticut, narratinp (
German activities on the Mexican j
west coast. I
"A most danperous propaganda is
beinp circulated to our south." said
en. Smith. "It is a hidinp place
for conspirators and anarchists and
sympathizers with our enemies.
Catch Wifeless Mesars.
"When I was in California re
cently I was told by a prominent of
ficial of our government that every
wireless met-sape he sent to Wash
ington was 'caupht up' in Mexico
for what purpose senators may con
jecture if they desire.
"This situation, demands and I
believe should receive the attention
of our povernment. Mexico Is a
hotbed of anarchy and disorder and
the riphts of our citizens are
trampled upon ruthlessly.
"I know that intripuers are at
work there. I have seen with my
own eyes that the money of our
enemies is at work there. One of
these days lives and blood and
money will pay for the tolerance
which we now show."
