THE CHRONICLE-NEWS
ONLY AFTERNOON LEASED WIRE ASSOCIATED PRESS PAPER IN SOUTHERN COLORADO
U. S. IS GROWING
WEARY OF ROW
IN MEXICO
O. ' -•ton. Dec. 20.—The de-
Administration to
1 ° ; /cy towurd Mexico,
* announcement last
nig.. pom* to make fresh
represents.. .o that government
regarding to the continuation of the
rebellion, la directly attributed to
tbe return t«» Washington of aevcral
persona thoroughly conversant with
the alleged evil conditions existing
south of the border.
First was llenry lane Wilson.
American ambassador to Mexico, who
has hern. In close touch with every
one of (lie American consular officers
In the disturbed districts aud who is
also ecnsjually aware of the attitude
of the Mexican government towurd
the large number of American claims,
presented ns u result of the depreda- 1
tlons committed by the rebels.
Then there have come forward the
three members of the self-constituted
committee of Americans representing
the large plantation and mining in
terests in Northern Mexico, who
from personal knowledge were able
to Inform the state department of the
vnrloua practices employed by the
rebel leaders to extort money from
the American manager* aud foremen
and of the comparative Indifference
of the Mexican government officials
to the numerous appeals of the Amer
ican Interests for protect lon from
the raiders
latstly, there have come the mem
bers of the »«*nnte sub-committee on
foreign relations, fresh from un in
vestigation at first hand of border
conditions, from California to Texas.
Tbe combination of ail these repre
sentations has made a profound im
presaion on tbs administration. It
has been concluded that stronger rep
resentations than have heretofore
been made must be directed the
Mexican government IT the renditions
are to be cured In the ordinary
course these will be (omaunicated
through Ambassador Wilson, who is
leaving Washington today for New
York, whence he will sail next Thurs
day for hi* port byway of Vera Cruz.
The fact that the Ambassador Is re
turning in a leisurely fashion may
be indicative of the purpose of the
administration to avoid undue haste
or excitement in developing this
stronger policy toward Mexico.
It has been represented to the state
Department that the strict enforce
ment of the neutrally laws. Is. In fact
resulting in the maintenance of .in
attitude anything but neutral on the
part of the United States and that
the Madoro government Is bencfltting
unduly by the exclusion of arms from
the rebel* while Itself receiving
quantities of military supplies, and
the United Slates government Is now
contemplating some amendment of
the practice In that respect so as to
mak* Ith atttud* more impartial as
between the combatants.
Reports to the state department to
day from the border refer to the
strike of 950 Mexican miners em
ployed in American mines at Canan
ea. Sonora, and of the strong anti-
American feeling among the strikers.
The local officials express confidence
in their ability to control the situa
tion. but It Is thought Americans in
the neighborhood would be in danger
In the event of a riot. The rej>orts
indicate thut arms and ammunition,
allowed to cross the border fron* the
United States for the purpose of pro
tecting American Interests and placed
in the hands of the miners to use
against the rebels are being turned
upon the American mine managers
and foremen.
James S. Colbatb. manager of the
Mines Company of America at l/os
A/.uelev Chihuahua, who was capt
ured by the rebels December 17 and
held for ransom, was released De
cember is. according to a consular
report to the state department.
Nothing has been heard of the
American, J Morrcys, roadmaster of
the Mexican Northwestern railway,
wno was abducted by bandits when
h<» tried to extinguish n fire they had
kindled on a bridge.
