Washington, Nov, a7.—There were no developments in the Mexican sit uation today, official dispatches re ceived being of a routine character. The attitude of the Washington government coin incus to be one of patient waiting and, so far as is known no steps arc in contemplation i for the immediate future. Sir William Tyrrel, private secre • ary to Sir hid ward Grey, the Hritisli foreign secretary, said hood bye 10 President. Wilson today. lie will j leave Washington Sunday to return j to London. During Ins visit, here Sir William 1 lias seen *h<‘ president and Secretary I Bryan frequently and has been on j cordial terms with high government olTb ials generally. He lias maintain i ed silence, about his presence declar i ing only tiiat he came in no official | capacity. On uc uuut of the illness of Sir I Cecil Spring Jtlce, the' British ambas sador, Sir William volunteered his services as a medium of communica tion, participating in an exchange of views on the Mexican situation that have clarified, for both Washington ! and London, the interests and view 1 point of each government. The view held by those familiar with the nature of the exchanges be tween Oreat Britain and the United j States is that the relations between I the two governments have been con j tinuously friendly and that which has [ been referred to as an estrangement of relations is characterized by them as merely having been misapprehen sion of tlie purposes of each country during the kaleidoscopic changes which affairs in Mexico recently were undergoing. The two governments, It may be .'aid, now are working in close harmony and unison.
