urgent representations by the United
The Mexican gunboat Zaragos ha3

fehips laden with sisal for the United
State were cleared Saturday without
Rear Admiral Caperton, command
ing the American fleet in Mexican
waters, reported the raising of the
blockade in his official dispatches
early today and reported that tha
Zaragosa has returned to Vera Cruz.
The admiral s dispatches telling of re
lief of the situation crossed a new note
from the 1'nlted State, which was sent
on Its way to Carraniia this morning glv
tns notice that the United States was
determined to raise the blockade, and. If
necessary, use the cruiser Des Moines to
Inures Twine Supply.
Tt became known for the first time to
day that last week the Mexican gunboat
had stopped one American ship with a
hot across its bows, had held up another
and had Interfered with British
shipping. The seriousness of the
situation growing out of the QiTkade of
Progreso was pointed out by Secretary
Hotiaton of the Department of Agrlcul
ture. who advised the president that 200.
000.0(10 pountis or twine are used each
year In .the United States In binding
grain, and flax crops and that nine-tenths
of the supply Is made from sisal grown In
Yucatan and exported through Progreso.

farmers In the grain growing stater

Since February 25 the State department

tio Knltcil states for better treatment of
forejiur l;i .Mexico, whs lis follows:
"I thank you for your message of
March S for the reinsurance It conveys
ami for our Kind personal words. I beg
trial you will understand thiit It our mes
sages i.ci'aei umll v are couched in terms
of strong eini'lias's. It Is only because
they contain some matters which touch
the very anfety of Mexico Itself and the
whole process of its future history.
"We. seek always to uct as friends of
tho Mexican people and as their friends
It is our duty to speak very plainly about
the danger which threatens them from
without, whatever happens within their
borders which Is calculated to arouse the
hoRtlle. sentiment of the whole world.
".othlug will stir that sentiment more
promptly or more hotly or create greater
danger for Mexico than any (even tem
porary) disregard for lives, the safety or
tho rights of the citizens of other coun
tries resident within its territory or ap
parent contempt for the rights and safety
if those who represent religion.
"Any attempt to justify or explain these
thingd will not eradicate this sentiment
or lessen the danger that will arise from
"To warn you concerning such matters
Is an act of friendship, not of hostility,
and we cannot make the meaning too
tannest. To speak less plainly or with
less earnestness would be to conceal from
you a terrible risk which no lover of
Mexico should care to run."
