address as a diplomatic utteranoe that
Dreamed the spirit of liberty of an awal:.
The fact that Brazil, Peru and Mexico
already have recognized China did not
create any Impression of regret that the

bers of the cabinet pointed' out that the

attitude. It will be a matter of only
a few days, too, they said, when the new
republic would be taken Into th fnmliv
of nations at Washington, Reports of
attempted sjreasinations and political
unrest are not disturbing the administra
tion, they declared".
