WASHINGTON, Aug. 7.-Further de
mand for adoption of his resolution for
investigation of Mexican conditions by
the foreign relatons commltteo was made
today by Senator Clark of Wyoming.
Chairman Dacon asked that the resolu
tion be referred to his committee before
being acted on, but Senator Clark .ob
jected. "The administration has a policy, but
we don't know what It is," sold Mr.
Clark. "Now the president has sent his
third confidential representative to the
republic, but wo are left without Infor
mation why American lives are being
lost and American property destroyed.
1 soe.no reason for delaying action; there
can be an Investigation by this commit
tee as well as by the administration."
Senator Dacon said that conditions in
Mexico and between the two countries
were such that no hasty action should
be taken by the senate. "Because of the
Importance of this subject there Is no
higher duty resting on us than to ap
proach It with the utmost gravity and
consideration," he declared.
Senator Bacon declared that notwith
standing reports giving the Hucrta gov
ernment's formal announcement that It
would not receive John Llnd unless he
came with proper credentials and pre
pared to recognize the Huerta govern
ment, the senato should not act until
tome actual development had taken

It is a known' fact that the president of
the United States has formulated a plan
with a view to restoring peace and that
an effort Is now being made to execute
It. In my Judgment a discussion of the
matter is not in the best Interest of the
public weal. The question will not be
settled In a day or a week, nnd I fear
It will take longer. There will be plenty
of time to discuss it. .
"The president has openly sent a per
slnal representative to Mexico to bring
about some Bort of a settlement, some
arrangement by which peaceful results
may be secured. It is our desire that
orderly government be restored in Mexico.
One way Is to attempt to do so by
peaceful means; the other is by the
strong arm, by force. Who will say that
the latter should not be the last to which
we should resort?"
Senator Dacon asked the necessity of
the senate acting until the president's

to the report from Mexico that
would not be received and said:
In n Moment of Temper.
"Here is a message sent by ono who

peal to the senators 'to consider whether
the personal representative of the presi

would have the right to do for tho pur
pose of endeavoring to bring about a
result we all desire, should not be per
mitted to deliver his message. I ask you
to consider whether there. Is a condition
to require such haste that we cannot
permit this representative to deliver his
message and receive a reply.

be the time for us to determine whatever
Is necessary to be done by the govern
ment, and whatever is necessary will be

the Clark resolution would not help the
situation any Insofar as life or property
nap Imperiled. Such an investigation as
the senator from Wyoming proposed, ha
said, would take time and be of no effect
'n an emergency. .
Known In General Way,
Senator Bacon also said that the state
ments of Senator . Clark that conditions
In Mexico, or the actions of this gov
ernment were not known, were untrue.
Every detail was not known, he said,
but In a general way the conditions and
efforts of this government were known.
