Mexican Consul Says Sendinj
Fleet to Tampico Is a
"Colossal Bluff."
NP.M YU IlK. April 17.—Preslden
Wilson's action in sending the Allan
tic fleet to Tampico was character
ized yesterday as an "outrage" b;
Alfonso I.. Jiminez. the Mexieai
vice-consul at New Ydrk* Seno
Jiminez declared that “every mar
woman and child in Mexico, with ai
ounce of decent blood in their veins
would tight to the last if tile Unitei
States sent an army into Mexieai
The vice-consul made his statemen
at his office in the Whitehall building

lion fan Salute lie Krpreted?
| "How can the United States cxpec
I |i be saluted by the Mexican govern
| mem, considering the fact that lorn
ago, at the end of the Madero regime
the United Stales refused to recog
nize Huerta?” was the question Senoi
Jiminez asked. He said it could not
be answered. "The action of the
United States In sending all thost
ships to Mexico is an outrage, ant
there i- no excuse for it," he added
“Mexicans arid many people I mel
Iasi night were amazed at the action
of titis government. The Tampico in -
eident was a thing thul might have
happened in any country under like
conditions. Then all possible repara
tion was made; the sailors who were
arrested were released. They had
been v ictims of the blunder of a minor
liuerta Not to Hlame.
“President Huerta cannot be every
where. and no doubt lie would havt
prevented the thing. But the idea of
demanding that Mexico lire a salute
to tile American flag wnen the United
Stales refused to salute back is mon
strous. How can President Wilson
demand a salute from a country he
does not recognize?
“If President Huerta did order a
salyte. and if the United States ac
cepted if as an apology, would it not
mean the recognition of the Huerta
administration as the Mexican Gov
"Another thing is this, why should
not the United States respond to Mex
ico's salute? if I take off my Imt to
a man i expect him to return my
salute In the affairs of nations the
etiquette is tile same as between men.
"The United States has been watch
ing fur this opportunity to quarrel
with us. That is obvious to every
one who lias watched the situation.
1 do not believe that Americans will
he in sympathy with any interference
in our internal troubles. We are not
looking for international courtesy as
mueli as common decency in this
".Not a word was said about the
shooting of nine Americans about
threo months ago in Tampico, where
they had been found smuggling arms
to the rebels. Not a thing was done
in tin- Benton killing, and, indeed,
there have been many times when
this country had greater excuses for
intervening than the present one. But
nothing was done.

"Nothing was Hone by the L'nited
| States when Villa and the bandits
' who make up his so-called army out
t raged the women of the towns they
passed through on their ravaging
campaigns, such as Torreon and
Durango; and nothing wus done when
Villa robbed 700 Spaniards and then
drove them from Torreon. It Is sur
prising that even these things did
not arouse Mr. Wilson.
"Now. it would be all right and
reasonable for the l'nited States to
send a big tieet to Japan, hut the
sending offlfty-seven vessels to Mex
ico is a colossal bluff. We have onlv
a few ships down there, good onlv
for harbor defense. We would not,
of course, think of resisting the
1 ’cited States ships with our own,
but our army—well, that is different
KcrMlI* Fr«»m*h ExjiprlfniT.
"Do you remember what we gave
France? The French intervention in
1861 cost us 22,000 men, but it cost
France 25,000, and 900,000,000 francs.
Mr. Wilson should read the history of
that intervention before he acts too
hastily. We fought every inch of
the ground with the French, and. al
though we are at present internally
divided, we can raise an army of
4fHl,000 at least, so that we are com
paratively better equipped now than
ever before.
"We have had 300,000 reserves
training four hours a day for the
past six months, and of our 13,000.000.
I believe that every man, woman and
child with Mexican blood would fight.
Men would rather see their wives and
children killed than to be hampered
by the Vnlteti States. Women and
children will rise up and fight, I know,
against the brutality of a big power
like this.
"I am certain that the men who
are now divided against one another
will Join and take up arms 1n one
common cauf’e. the defense of their
country against the attacks of the
l'nited States.”
