Agnln s few months ago It appeared
that the Dominican republic and Haiti
were about to enter upon hostilities be
cause of complications growing out of an
acrimonious laiundarv dispute which th
efforts of many years had talk d to solve.
The government of the United Htatea. bv
m ftlendlv inteiposltlon of good office,
succeeded In prevailing upon the parties
to place their reliance upon some form of
pacific settlement.
The recent political events In Mexico
received attention from thla government
because of the exceedingly delh ate and
difficult situation created along our south
ern border and the necessity for taking
measure prope-.ly to safeguard Amerl
aan Interest The government of the
tTnlted Htales. In Its desire to secure a
roper observance and enforcement or
he so-called neutrality statutes of the
federal government. Issued directions to
the appropriate officers to exercise a 111
Vent and vigilant regard for the rem. re
ments of such rules and law Although
condition of actual "ned conflict ex
isted there was no official recognition of
belligerency involving the technical neu
trality obligations of International law
On the th of March last, In the ab
sence of the secretary of stste. I had a
personal interview with Mr W llaon. the
ambassador of the United State to M
tn tn which he reported to me that the
condition in Mexico were much more
critical than the press dispatches flts
eloaed thst President Ilai was on a vol
cano of popular uprising; that the small
outbreaks which had occurred were only
symptomatic of the whole condition; that
very large per cent, of the people were
In sympathy with the Insurrection, that a
reneral r xphmlon was probable at any
time In which cae he feared that the
440 oro or more American resident In
Mexico might be assailed, and that the
very large American Investment might
be injured ST destroyed.
After a conference with the secretary
of war snd the secretary of the navy 1
thought It wise to assemble an army
division of full strength at Ran Antonio.

J expressed tn President Dies the hope
that no apprehensions might result from
unfounded conjecture na to these mili
tary maneuvers, and assured him that
they had no significance which should
cause conc-rn to his government.
I nm more than nappy to here record
ths faM that all apprehensions as to the
effect of ths presence of so large a mili
tary force In Texas provsd groundlesa;
no disturbances occurred.
From time to time communication
were received from Ambassador Wilson,
who had returned to Mexico, conflimlng

theee Invasions of American rlghta to th
Mexican authorities.
The presence of a large military and
naval force available for prompt action,
near the Mexican border, proved to be.
the most fortunate under fhe somewhat
trying conditions presented by this Inva
sion of American rights.
The policy and action of ,hla govern
ment were baesd upon an earnest friend
liness for the Mexican people a a whole,
and It Is a matter of gratification to nots
that this attitude of strict Impartiality as
to all factions In Maxlco and of sincere
friendship for the neighboring nation,
without regard for party allegiance, ha
been generally recognised and has re

signed In ISM. would by 0 strict Inter

ed on July IT. MS. Japan's general
treaties with the other power, however,
terminated in 1911. ami the Japanese gov
ernment expressed an earnest QOetf to
conduct the negotiation for a nOAW treaty
with the United Htatea simultaneously
with Its negotiations with the other pow
ers .There were a number of Important
question Involved In the treaty. ln lug
log the Immigration of laborers, revision
of the cuMtoni tariff and the right of
Americans to hold real etate In Japan
The United Rtate consent. -1 to UnuVO all
technicalities and to enter at once upon

In Burop? aftd the near east, during the
