The decision to Issue such warning
v. as reached at a special meeting of tbe
' The proclamttloa augmented by s
l;lKratn addressed by th Htata depart
ment to AmbasatAor Wilson In the City
of Mexico. The smbasador.wns Instructed
to Inform Americans In peril there to
withdraw across the border1, leaving- their
effects In the care of the nearest lotted
State consul.
Copies of ths telegram were sent alsolo
onaular agents.
The presidents utterance, it wss sx
plained, was In no sense a recognition of
the revoluttlonary movement In the sis
ter requbtlc to the south. Neither waa It
to be looked upon as a declaration of
neutrality. It was declared the utterance
was solely a warning to Americans to
avoid anything that might savor of par
tisanship In the existing state of affairs.
Test of Procreation,

further as an expression of this country's
Intention to avoid .by every' possible
