ANYBODY H REABOuTS STURGEON'S LTCOSE IS SUSPENDED FOR 30 DAYS Anti-American Demonstration in Mex-j ico City a Plot to Force U. S. to Hasty Actio. . (Special te The Indianapolis News WASHINGTON. July 17. Neither the recognition of the Huerta government nor intervention In the affairs of Mexico is contemplated by the Wilson administration at thla time. Thla statement is based on the highest authority. It can also be stated. on the aame authority that no representative of any foreign government In Washington baa declared that It Is time for the United States government to Indicate to the powers of Europe what it proposes to do with respect to the Mexican aitua-tlon. The only representations that have come to thla government are those which have filtered through the representatives-of the foreign governments stationed in Mexico Ciur. The stste department has nothing in hand to ahow that the action of the foreign diplomats in Mexico in asking the United States to recognize the Huerta government was Inspired by the home governments of those diplomats. Mexico Mutt Make Good. The view of the Wilson administration today waa that there waa nothing in the situation which warranted the United 8tatea government in assuming any other atUtude than that of "hands off." That thla will -be the attitude of the Wilson administration, for the present at least. waa made plain today. Mexico will have to continue to work out Its own salvation, so far as -any Interference on the part ot this government Is concerned. There Is every evidence to believe that President Wilson, like President Taft, will not be moved from this position by any amount of Jingo talk here at home, or by any such demand If It may be called a demand as .has thus far been made by the foreign diplomats credited to the Mexican government. . .The administration has what It regards as ample evidence that the recent. anti-American demonstration In Mexico City waa. to use the language of; the street, a "frameun." It is In receipt Of confidential reports of Its agents In Mexico, which leaves no doubt In the minds 01 persons here who have had access to these reports that the effort to force tha United States to recognize the Huerta government was carefully planned, and, as one representa tive or the administration saia toaay. beautifully staged. Money Power Behind Move. There are also excellent reasons for be lieving that behind the. program to force the hand of the Wilson administration. Just aa effort after effort was made to force the hand of the Taft administration. are certain large financial interests, which, according ;o common report, are behind the so-called Huerta government. The ' facts with respect to the statins of-the plan to stampede the. Wilson ad-mintstratiooX inta- immediate recognition have been In the-hands-of the President and the secretary of state for several days. It is related that at leest one-half of the so-called statesmen in Central and South America are at this time keenly interested In the recognition of the Huerta government by the United. States for the reason, as It la pointed out. that If thla government should recognize a government that had no sanction of taw. of dod- ular will that was based on an assassina tionambitious persons In many of the South and Central American countries would be encouraged to start revolutions at once. 4 ( Would Be Dangerous Precedent It. Is pointed out that it the United States should set a precedent by recognizing- the Huerta government, it would in the future be bound to recognize every revolutionary government that came along asking for recognition. It Is also pointed out that there la nothing in the Monroe doctrine which makes it necessary for the United States to make war In response to pressure brought by any foreign governments. The administration so far Is silent as to what It had in mind when it called Am bassador Henry Lane Wilson to come to ashington at once for a personal con ference with the President. It waa said by one person In authority today that the administration already 'haa all the Information the ambassador would be able to furnish, and had It from unbiased sources. The assumption is that the ambassa dor's action in participating in the meeting of foreign diplomats which urged the United States to extend recognition was not to the liking of the administration. As one person, who la in a position to know what Is going on, said, today: "It Continued on Page Thirteen. WEATHER INDICATIONS. (See -Weather Map on Pegs 4.) UNITE C) STATES WEATHER BUREAU.
