This statement was made by the Mexican foreign minister tonight. V [Associated Press Telegraanl Washington, D. C-, October, Three European nations, Great Brit- ain, Germany and France, have agreed to adopt no new policy toward Mexi- co until the government of the "United States can submit for Iheir consider- ation a definite plan for the future treatment of the revolution-torn re- public in central America. .That a request of the powers to await a proposal regarding Slexico from this government haa been made and three great European, nations had yielded to the reqiiest, was announced late today, by Secre- tary Bryan. President Wilson was en- route to Washington from the youth wl.en the announcement was made and the secretary of state did not indicate what would be the nature of the c'on- teniplated negotiations with the for- eign governments. .The president ar- rive? here }ate tonight and planned to confer .early tomorrow with Mr. Bryan. Concert of Powers. "When the note to the powers is to has not been determined buf the belief prevails that reasonable given for the announce- ment from the Huerta government in Mexico of the result of last Sunday's election for a: new government. That this announcement will "be that the election of a new president had failed "because; of the insufficiency of the vote' still is the expectation-of officials Zere "and it is believed President Wilson and his advisers are proceed- ing on the theory that some concerted effort must be made by all the gov- ernments interested in Mexico to rid that nation of the domination of Gen- eral Huerta. Diaz Case Interests. Though interest in this development overshadows all else in official circles here, tlie flight of General Felix Diaz from Vera Cruz, to refuge on the Am- erican gunboat Wheeling was much discussed and tonight rear admiral Fletcher was notified by Secretary Bryan that political refuses can be shielded only, temporarily. Admiral Fletcher, who is in com- mand of the American ships in Mexi- can notified the Washiugton office today that Diaz with two Mexi- can companions and an American, newspaper man had been granted the right of asylum on the Wheeling after pleading that their lives were endan- gered. The admiral asked for istruc- tions as to their disposition. The state department first instructed him to in- quire of the Mexican refugees where they wished to go. Later the depart- ment notified the admiral that within a reasonable time they must be trans- ferred from the American war vessel. They may be placed aboard a comraer- 'cial liner bound for Havana or New York ss they choose. It was believed here tonight that Diaz and his friends would ask to be placed aboard an American bound ship and that, until such disposition could be made of them, Admiral Fletcher would permit them to remain aboard one of the United States ships in Mexican waters.

Wilson's speech yesterday at Mobile was epochal; it will live in history the 'Mobile Secretary of tee Navy Josephus Daniels de- clared here today, "it is a Joaicai and necessary addition to the Monroe doctrine. That doctrine still is bur pillar of cloud but since the United States acquired Porto Rico, the Phil- ippines and the Panama canal zone, there has been a growing suspicion that we were falling into tne ways of some other nations; that we were us- ing the Monroe doctrine to keep other nations out of the Latin-American republics whenever we relt like it. Mobile Speech Decisive. "The 'Mobiile declaration" ef- fectually has put an end to any such thoughts; it has shown Eu- rope where we stand and it plays suspicion for all time and bring us into closer spiritual re- lationship with the other coun- tries to the south." Secretary Daniels maae a brief stop in Atlanta enroute from Mobile to his home in Raleigh, N. C., where he will spend all day tomorrow attend- ing to private affairs. This program was taken to meau that the secretary and. the- administration, at Washing- ton, did not regard matters in.Mexi- co as accute at this time. Mr. Dan- iels expressed the belief that the sit- uation soon would, adjust-itself and that it would" not be necessary for this country to act in. any "way ex- cept in friendly capacity. He im- pressed this opinion upon all vtith whom he talked. Mr. Daniels said: Underwood Pleased. 'At Mobile last night Majority Leader Underwood of tee house of representative characterized tar- iif and currency legislation under- taken in the present congress as the greatest- executive progress of a de- cade I believe the country appreciates that fact. "To the legislative program of the present administration, however, should be added four all important features of an executive program. Four Great Measures. "The first of these was the Mo- bile declaration' that this country would not voluntarily acquire an- other inch of territory. The sec- ond feature of the program was the recognjtion by this country of the republic of China. America has been a beacon for re- publics and will assist any repub- lic founded upon oonstitutionai liberty. "A third fdature of the admin- istration's executive program was the sending of Burton Harrison to the Philippines with Instruc- tions which showed it to be the policy of this country to go for- ward with Philippine independ- ence-as quickly as can be wisely done. "The fourth feature was the proposition of Secretary of State Bryan, now accepted in principle by a score of nations, for the holding of conferences prior to 'a declaration of war, with no incresse in armaments during tne discussion of differences." Battleship Depends. As to a battleship program, the secretary of the navy said the pres- ent administration endorsed the plan of Winston Chnrehii) for s, cessation n the competition resulting in over- grown navies and excessive expen- ditures for IE-Hilary establishments. 'No one nation however, can con- rol its own program.' he added. "The Jnited States cannot do so; neither can England. It will be necessary for he large nations to act in unison, am sure the United States is .eady o co-operate in nny such plan."

The "matter will be thoroughly tlis- cussed before a vote is taken." Members of the "committee tonight expressed the" belief, that in tlie opposition to the central bank system, that plan would be rejected but that the committee would take.ad- vantage of the president's to reduce the number of regional serve banks provided for by the bill from twelve to as low as foiir or five. A compromise pla.n along these lines was suggested yesterday by Prof. J. W. Jenks. Under his pian the profits of the federal reserve banks would be pooled and distributed by the federal reserve board among the banks pro rata according to the capita! stock. The reserve would be pooled under the control of the federal bo.-.rel. This, Professor Jenks, would unify the sys- tem. ARCHAELOGIST FIHDS PALACES OF CAESARS PrpsB Rom-e, Oct.

Dr. Wilson declared that President Taft waited until the last- minute, when he hoped there would be no time for reconsideration before ve- toing the Wehb-Kcnyon bill and said that his administration down to defeat beneath an avalanche of in- dignant protest -such as never has been duplicated- in the United Stat- TOT I Attorney Williamson Says if Jameson Had Believed the Statements in his Letter he Would Say so on Stand LOVEJOY TO CLOSE ARGUMENT TO JURY It is Expected that Case will go to Jury Early this" After- Letters Writ- ten by Jameson Introduced Following the announcement by Judge Ransier for the defense that no witnesses would be placed on the stand in behalf of tlie defen- dant, in the Farmers Savings bank vs, Jameson case, Attorney Williamson made the opening ad- "dress to the jury. Mr. Williamson said that Jameson was "afraid to take the witness stand" to testify and face the music. "If he was an honest man1', said Mr'. William- son, "and believed the statements he made in that letter to be true, he would have come upon this stand and testified. He didn't have the nerve nor the courage to tes- tify. Why didn't he truth when he wrote that letter to Mr. Reimers. Why didn't he tell Mr. Reimers that he had been trying to collect a note held by the Tri- poli bank? If he had done so, Boggs would net have been able to secure the loans he did from Reimers." Continuing, Sir. Williamson stated Jiat Jameson had unloaded his own obligations on the directors of the Security Savings bank, of which in- stitution he was the president. This, ise said, accounted for most of the money which Boggs bad secured after the letter had: been written to Mr. "A great Christian Deader-- Is -tfie secretary of state now" continued Dr. Wilson. "Our former secretary of state used to send out letters to all American consuls, notifying them of brewers' conventions and ordering them to see what they could do to increase the exportation of American beers to their country. Wm. J. Bry- an will never do that. When Mr. Bryan calls the representatives of the nations around his hospitable board he serves the same kind of grape juice which. was used in Palestine in the days of Jesus. And when a few newspapers commented, Mr. Bryan made a speech that was heard around the ..world; and Bryan's grape juice became as popular as Kansas But- termilk. Dr. Wilson said under (he present administration all grog shops have been closed in the Panama zone and the battleships of the navy forbidden to earn- alcoholic liquors on board. He declared that the cause of tem- perance had received a great up- lift.

Signature is O; K. Mr. Jameson was placed on the stand yesterday morning by the plain- tiff and asked to identify signatures to two letters written to E. M. Mar- tin, cashier of the Tripoli bank. Mr. Jameson testified that the signatures were his own. The letters introduced as evidence are as follows: "Waterloo, Iowa, May IS. 1910. "Ed. H. Martin, Cashier. "Tripoli, Iowa.'
