Election, of General Obregon
Regarded as Sure Protection
, For .. American Lives in
Neighbor States. t
Br Ti Aaaorlat-rd Trta.;
Washfngtou, Sept. 6. With the
election of Gen. Alvaro Obregon to
the presidency of Mexico yesterday,
officials here are looking forward to
a betterment "of relations between
Mexico and the United States. Gen
eral Obregon's public speeches and
statements regarding international
affairs have cet closely scrutinized
by officials of the State department
and it is knawn that these, his plat
formnd all that he stands for in
dicate that"" American lives and pro
perty will be accorded protection and
respect which is their due withouf
in anywa' intpairing the sovereignty
of Mexico or belittling her dignity.
Every, statement thus for made by
Obregon is favorable, for a fair deal
to foreign interests, wUich is all
that a.y of the governments whose
nationals are interested in Mexico
have ever asked for. It remains now
only for Obregon to put hito efJect
the-1 distinct commitments he 'has
made, according to the view of offi
cials here, which he can do wit-h full
resnect to Mexico's dignity and sov
ereignly. - ' , :,
Are Well Informed.
The state department has, kept it
self fully informed as to the Source
and motive, it' was authoritatively
stated today, of much ialk. charac
terized as, irresponsible to the effect
that American interests, particularly
oil interests, have been meddling in
Mexican politics, the charge being
made' that .American gold is" being
used , to -pacify fexico. It va
learned today that the (Jeoartinent
has no reason to believe., from de
tailed and extended reports, in spite
ftf fre"'irws;rapert camparg-n- iii ',cr
tain parts of, the country, that Amer
ican interests.- oil. min'iug or agri-
tcultural. . are doing anything but
complying with their obligations and
that so Icing as this continues, these
interests arc entitled to aaid will re
ceive the protection to which they
are entitled under the recognized
usasres of international law. v
The situaVfon was summarized to-
i day by high official of the state
denartment as 'follows:
I 1. The- 'Americen; companies are
legally and rightfully in Mexico at
the invitation, often the expressed
I request, of the Mexican govcrnmnt.
' - Will Protest Yanks.
2. That , so far ar- the department
knows; they are living up "to their
te.;al obligations; that despitt idle
uunors. there is no worthy evidence
of their departing from this ilnc Mf
conduct. . i t
.'. So long jft the department feels
l.tljat they are not. engaged in any
impioncr activities tne yare entitled
to and "will receive the protection
that is their due in international
It was noted that there is nothing
to indicate , that General Obregon
can or w ill Uake any exception, or
that the-Mexicasrgovcrnment would
object to this. No nation of the
world except soviet Russia with
which Mexico does not wish -to be
compared, ever takes exception to
another nation safeguarding the
rights of its (nationals in a foreign
land, an official of the department
said today, as long as these ntaoin
als set within the principles of in
tcnntMnal law.j Mexico herself had
occasion to know this when she ap
pealed to the Untie";! Stacts for pro
tection of Mexicans in this country
wh:i through error or overzeael
ousness of ibcal authorities, were
cai'ht in the draft net during the

In jkditical circles the action -of 1

in the third round of their 10-round
match. Three hard smashes were Siif-

and $100,000, his 50 per cent shre of

At the start of the fight, his first
in 14 months, .Dempsey peeled off the
same worn and patched red sweater
that he wore when he knocked out
Jess Willard. 'His face wore the
same fighting frown, he danced about
the ring with old-time lightness of
loot and finished up by taking the
fight in the third round just as ho
did at. Toledo. The third round went
1 minute and l.V seconds."
Miske went i down three times

Miske Lands First Blow.
Miske was pale, his forehead
wrinkled and his lips pressed tight
as he sprang to meet Dempsey with
the opening gong. He landed the
first blow. Both challenger and
champion measured each other with
a cautious tattoo of lefts and right,
none of them seeming to punisfi
much. The crowd yelled at Dempsey
to speed it up and Miske grinned.
