Nomination of Henry Morgcnthau to be the American ambassador to Mexico constitutes the final assur ance that unless some untoward act not now foreseen, arises to dis turb the friendly relations between the United States and Mexico, there will be no military intervention under the Wilson administration in the affairs of the southern repub lic nor withdrawal of recognition of the Carranza government, based upon the record of what has hap pened thus far. The president's appointment of a successor to Ambassador Fletcher is his answer to the activities of the senate subcommittee investi gating Mexican affairs, which has been presided over by Senator Fall, of New Mexico. It is, moreover, his reply to the campaign which has obtained sympathetic consideration inside the department of state to withdraw recognition from the Carranza government by resolution of congress. Lansing and Fletcher Afrreed. It is true that Secretary Lansing, although the original proponent of recognition of Carranza, had got ten more or less out of patience with the actions of the Mexican government in various disputes pending with the United States and that Ambassador Fletcher, too, felt that all that could be done with dig nity and honor had been attempt ed by the American embassy at Mexico City to no avail. Mr. Fletch er had been ambassador to Chile and brought with him to Mexico City not only a fluent command of the Mexican language but a knowl edge of Latin American affairs that made It possible for him to get a firm grasp on the situation in a short time. He had many personal conferences with President Car-.ranza-and 0rfonaejL dejkatoja&k in the period of America's partici pation in the European war when it was particularly desirable to keep the Germans from using Mexico as a base for intrigue or pernicious activity in Mexican af fairs that might bring on a war be tween the United States and divert the flow of men and supplies to Europe. When the war was ended, tho president was either in Paris or too absorbed while in Washington in the larger affairs of the League of Nations to bother about Mexico. As a consequence matters drifted on until the senate subcommittee took an active interest in the sit uation, seeking by publicity not ex actly to bring about intervention as so many people have supposed, but to obtain a withdrawal of the recognition the United States had extended to the Carranza govern ment. Even if the plan failed, it was thought the moral influence of the investigation would promote a healthier regard for the lives and (Continued on Page Ten.)
