AUttule of Carranza Brings the Mexican Problem Into Ser ious Situation Involves the Monroe duetriuc to Tho GlobeGazette Washington Mar Gen eral Villa has acknowledged the au thority of General Carranza as his chief and will not permit the Ameri can commission to examine ths body of William S Benton until the Washington government has consult ed General Carranza is the explan ation made by the president of the latest phase of the Mexican situation Wilson told callers that the desire of tile commissioners to get further in structions from Washington as well as orders from Villa himself neces sitated a postponement but the president takes it for granted that tho commissioners will start in a few days at the most Attitude Hal es Question Carranzaa prestige in the eyes of the American government and the future of the constitutionalist move ment so far as the United States is concerned depend to a large extent upon the recognition or repudiation by Carranza of the principle that the United States is the virtual guard ian of the interests of all foreigners in Mexico The situation created hy Carran Kas refusal give the United States government information about klllr ation that Great Britain herself should address the ciuestlon to him is regarded by administration asa serious ons The officials feel that some of underlying ideas of the American foreign policy evolved from tho Monroe doctrine have been questioned by the constitutionalist chief Specifically the American govern ment has asked tho powers of the world to give it a free hand in deal Ing with the Mexican problem and has Incidentally undertaken to ob tain security and protection to the consulates A test of Carranzas at titude is involved in connection with the arrangements the American government is seeking to make for an examination of Bentons body TheWashington government is now consulting with Carranza Gin Afford to Wait President Wilson was asked in view of the new developments a change polciy was intended by the United States immediately The president pointed out that a country of the size and power o fthe United States could afford to wait just as long as it pleased aud that nobody doubted its power and nobody doubt ed that Huerta will eventually re tire and that there need be no hesi tation in forming tho judgment that what the United States wished to ac complish In Mexico would be accom plished but that those people who were in haste forgot what they themselves would have to do they would have to contribute brothers sons and sweethearts to do it If they wanted it done right away they were willing to wait the president indicated such a step might not be necessary SAYS AIOYKR COULD HAVE ENDED STRIKE Special to The Hough ton Mar Roes chief counsel for tho operators in his

Cannot Insist on Right to Push Case of Rciitoh Special to Tho GlobeGazette Washington Mar white house view on the Benton trouble is that strictly speaking there is no right of international law by which the United States could insist on act ing for Great l3riaitn although the American government has been ask ed by the powers to use its good of fices for the protection of foreign ers If however England should not ask the United States to the matter into further cpmplieat with Carauza the American govom ment would not feel obliged to go beyond an investigation the facts through Its own consular repre sentatives The next step it appears is some intimation from Great Britain as to how far she expects the United States to pushthe Beiitoii case Also there is reason to believe Carranza can bo expected in the near future to give tho American government further assurances that all foreigners regardless whether their fovernments recognized Huer ta or not will be safe in Northern Mexico
