PRESIDENT WILSON DELIVERS HIS PERSONAL MESSAGE TO CONGRESS Washington. 0. April President Wjlsuii laid tin.: Mexican situation before Congrcs: today in these words: of llic Congress: II is my duly to call your, attention lo a situation which has arisen in onr dealings with Gen. Ha at wliicli calls for action, and Id ask your advice ami co-operation in acting n it. On Hie ninth of April if paymaster of the United Slates ship Dolphin landed al the llur- It Bridge landing al Tampieo wilha whalehoiil jiiid boat's crew lo lake cerliiin supplies needed his sliip, anil while engaged in loading the .boat was nrresled by an ollker and scpuid of men Ihe army of General Huerla. Neither the paymaster nor any one of Ihc limit's crew was armed, vvo of Ihe men were in the boat when the arreii yncl were obliged lo leave it and suh- lil lo be taken inlo ea-Uudy.'nolwilhslanding tjVc fact lhat the boat carried, bolh al her and I her stern, the Hag of the Unilcd Slates'. Tlie'bjiiroi- who made the arrest proceeding up ne of Ihe slrecls of the Ibwn with, his prisoners.; when met by an ollicer oi higher authority, who rdered him to return to the landinj; and await orik-rs, and within an hour and ii.hall from (he lime f the arrest, orders were received "from: the commander of the Huertisla forces al Tampico for ic release of the paymaster and .his men.. The-, reieas'e'.vas fqljowcd by apologies from the coin- laiider and luler hy an expression of regret by (itm-nil Hiierla himself. General llucrln urged ml martial law obtained ai Ihe time al Tampico, lhal orders had been issued that no one should. e allowed lo land al Ihc I.lurWde bridge, and lhat our sailors had no right -lo laud there. Onr' Mil CMSlSi 350 nval commanders al the port had not been notified of such prohibition and, even if they hud been, S55 oi- [ic only justifiable course open to the Ibcalautlionlies would liave lo rapiest the. payKsastei-, nd bis crew to withdraw and lodge a protest wilh Hie commanding pniccT of the Admiral Jayo regarded the arrest as so serious an offense, lhat he was. nut satisfied wilh Ihc apologies offered, bul demanded lhal of Ihe United Slates he saluted with .special ceremonies by he military commander of Ihc port. The incident cannot'be regarded as a trivinl one especially as the two men arrested were aken from the bout itself, thai is to say, from ifc lerrilory-of Ihe United Slates, hul had it stood itself il might have been allributcd lo the ignorance or arrogance of :t single officer. Unfor- iiiialcly, it was nol an isolalcd case: A scries of incidents have rcccnlly occurred which cannot nit create Ihc impression lhal the reprcsenlalivcj of General Huerla were willing lo go onl of heir way lo show disregard far the dignity and rights of Ihis government, and fell peifcclly safe n doing what they pleased, making'free to show in many ways their .irritation and contempt. A few days afler the incident at Tampico, an orderly from the United States steamship Minnesota was arrested at Vcra Cruz, while ashore in uniform io obtain the ship's mail, and was for a time thrown in jail.

I have heard no complaints of other governments of similar Irealmenl. Subsequent explanations nnd formal apologies did nol and could nol aller the popular impression which il is possible il had be.en ihe object'of iluerlisla authorities lo create, lhal (he government of the.
