Not Set up Through Election or in Ae cort with Protocol Special to The GlobeGazette Washington July Wilson will not recognize the provi sional president Carbajal nor any other government In Mexico not set up through election or ic accordance with the protocol signed at Niagara Falls Despite the res ignation of Huerta Wilson will con tinue his watchful waiting policy until the Mexican situation 13 more clarified The eKpeciation of the administration is that arrangements can be made for the peaceful entry of the constitutionalists into Mexico City in case Carranza and his gen erals finally refuse to accept Presi dent Carbajal pending the holding of an election President Wilson be lieves that other nations will not recognize any government until the United States has Indicated Its atti

Spanish citizens in Mexico CHy He was unable to say whether the Span ish embassy would continue to rep resent Mexico in the United States under Carbajal General Funston in a dispatch to the war department made no men tion of Huertas plans but expressed belief that In consequence of the dic tators resignation there would be defections from his troops on guard along the railroad and that such deserters would come to Vera Cruz It is explained by the war depart ment that no effort will be made to keep such soldiers out of Vera Cruz At first it was the idea that such soldiers should be turned back by the American lines but later it was decided they should be permitted to enter Vera Oruz provlded they laid down their arms nation is regarded as a victory for President Wilsons policy and is welcomedby the English public In official circles here as g possible so lution of the Mexican problem and a peacefulend to the complex situa tion It was greatly desired here on account of the large British finan cial interests in the country Most of the London newspapers towever express a dcubt as to whether con ditions will be better under Car rauza than when Huerta waa in pow er in Mexico Tfca Pail Mall Gazette points out that if Carbajal surrenders to Car ranza as he U expected to do It may soon bejposslble to exactt re paration froia Gen Villa for the murder s Benton the Scottish The Evening Standard aays The Washington ad ministration won a diplomatic victory President WUson has been persistent and patient in his policy of nonrecognition of Gen Huerta but it is likely enough he will be met now by other obstacles just as hard to surmount as was Gen Huartaa The Globe takes much the same view saying The elimination of Gen Huerta is a triumph of sorts for President Wilson but it may be as sumed that his difficulties and anx ieties are by no means over There is no reason to suppose that the real opinions of the Mexican people will have more opportunity to aHsert themselves under Gen CarranKa than they had under Gen Huerta The United States however has been warned by experience not to In quire too closely nor to expect too Continued on Pago No 231 GERMAN CRUISER DRESDEN
