Note$ a Chang in
(Slgnali.inK a chajige from the
"watrhful waiting" policy, which baa
Kiilded rclationn with Mexico for
niorp than two ypara. the prpaidont's
ttatpment waa regarded everywhere
in official and diplomatic quarters an
notlep of a new and vigoroun policy
to restore peace below the Klo
Kvprywhere It waa interpreted a
h warning that the patience of the
Vnltod KtatPB is PxoaiiBtPd. What
atepii the president is prepared to
tike if hi warning goes unheeded
are not disclosed in the statement.
In high official quartern, neverthe
less, no doubt existed that he Is pre
pared to proreed.
The Blatempnt, which goes to t'sr
runza. Villa, Zapata and Garza, the
principal leader, not as a diplomatic
note from the United States, hut an
a declaration of President Wlluon's
attitude, expressed in a statement to
the American people, as as follows:
"For more than two years revolu
tionary conditions, have existed in
Mexico. The purpose of the revolu
tion waa to rid Mexico of men who
Ignored the constitution of the re
public and used their power In con
tempt of the right of Ita people, and
with these purposes the people of tbb
I'nited States instinctively and gen
erously sympathized. Hut the lead
ers of the revolution in ihn very hour
of their success have disagreed and I
turned their arms against one an
"All professing the same objec
tive, they are nevertheless, unaule or
unwilling to co-operate, A central
authority of Mexico City is no sooner I
set up than It is undermined and Its
authority denied by those who were
expected to support It.
"Mexico Is apparently no nearpr
a solution of its tragical troubles
than It nag when the revolution was
first kindled, it has been swept by
civil war as if by fire. Its crops are
tfestroyed, ita fields lie unseeded. Its
work cattle are confincated for the
use of the armed factions, its people
flee to thp mountains to escape being
drawn into the unavailable blood
shed and no man seems to see or lead
the way to peace and settled order.
There is no proper protection either
for Its own citizens or the citizens of
other nations resident or at work
nlthln Its territory. Mexico Is starr
ing and wtthout a government.
United States Must
Take Some Hand.
"In these circumstances thp people
and government of the United States
cannot stand indifferently by and do
nothing to Bene their neighbors.
They want nothing for themselves in
Mexico. 1-east of all do they desire
to settle Its affairs for It or claim any
right to io so. But neither do they
vIhI) to see utter ruin come upon It,
and they deem It their duty as
friends and neighbors to lend all aid
they properly can to any instru
mentality which promises lo be effec
tive In bringing about a settlement
which will embody the real objects
of the revolution constitutional
go ernment and Hie rights of the
peoplp. Patriotic Mexicans are sick
at heart and t ry out for peace and
for every self-sacrifice that may be
reressary to procure It. Their peo
ple cry out for' food and will pres
ently hale as much as they fear everv
man in their country or out of It who
stands between them and their daily
Peace Must Be Had
Without Further Delay. .
"It Is time, therefore, that the gov
ernment of the United States should
frankly state the policy which In
these extraordinary circumstances it
becomes Its duty to adopt. It must
presently do what it has neither
done or felt at liberty to do lend
its active moral support to some man
or group of men. If such may be
found, who can rally the suffering
people of Mexico to their support In
an effort to ignore, if they cannot
unite, the warring factions of the
country, return to the constitution
of the republic so long in abeyance
and set up a government at Mexico
City which the great powers of the
world ran recognize and deal with,
a government with whom the pro
gram of the revolution will be a bus
iness and not merely a platform. I
therefore publicly and very solemnly
call upon the leaders of factions In
Mexico to act, to act together, and to
act promptly, for the relief and re
demption of their prostrate coun
try. I feel it to be my duty to tell
them that if they cannot accommo
date their differences and unite for
this great purpose within a very
short time this government will be
constrained to decide what means
should be employed by the United
States in order to help Mexico save
Itself and serve Its people."

Hon of the merchantman with American
The questions of fact raised by Ger
many were regarded as Irrelevant at this
time. The trend of opinion waa that the
I'nited Htates must Inquire and obtain an
early answer whether Germany Intends
to recognise the hitherto aocepted Prln
clple that neutrals may travel anywhere
on tho high seas on unarmed tnerohant
ships, even it carrying contraband, and
that merchantmen which do not resist
capture must be visited and searched and
the passengers and crew transferred to
a place of safety before the vessel Is
What It Wnald Lead To.
An unfavorable anawer to this Inquiry
would lead, it was predicted In official
quarters, to a seversnce of diplomatic
relations on the ground that the United
States could not continue . Intercourse
with a government which repudiated
these principles. Steps then will be taken
to Inform Americans of the dangera to
which they are exposed as a result of
this action and such measures aa neces
sary adopted to safeguard the lives and
intereata of cltisena of the United States.
Hhould Germany accept the principle
In a way that would constitute a guar
antee for the future, the American gov
ernment would reiterate Its demand for
"strict accountability" for violations of
thl principle ntul the kllliiiK of Americans
In the torpedoing without warning of tho
The decision to base the American nolo
on the principles ot International law to
obtain an affirmative or negative reply,
and not enter into a technical discussion
of details, raised (n the German com
munication, which avoided the main la
sues, waa the single development of the
View of Borne Members.
One cabinet officer Relieved the Amer
ican government should enter Into an in
vestigation of the points raised by the
German anawer. submitting Its proof and
fciving the German government an op
portunity to do likewise. Others, how
ever, declared that such a process would
enly mean delay, snd. In the event ct a
deadlock on fat la. would leave the
I'nited Slate, which had already as
sured Itself of the authenticity of Its In
formation and whose d faith was at
stake, without reoiedy for the present
snd in the future for attacks on Amer
ican vceels. The opinion was general
that the I'nited Htates would restate dur
ing the course of lis note that the Luai
tat.la waa unarmed and would ignore
auch questions whether the carriage of
ammunition is a violation of American
HAVRK, France, June 2. The following
official statement was Issued last night
regarding the operations ot the Belgian
! army: .
"A fierce artillery duel marked the day
of May 31 along the Ilelgian front. Bel
gian guns of all calibers mawd their fire,
blowing up the enemy's trenches and
accessory defences at a number of points.
"All the mads beyond the German front
