Indications pointed strongly to the view that the policy of tho United States for the next few -days will be a waiting one, while strict neutrality is enforced and Americans are urged , to leave Mexico. Those who take that view, point to" Pres. 4dent Wilson's declaration" to congress In his address that the actual situation ot the authorities' at Mexico City will pre sently be revealed, and that "steady pres sure of moral force will before many days broak down tho barrfcrs ot prldo and prejudice."
