Washington, Nov. 12. The Mexican
situation is nguin ut a stage where
this government is waiting upon de
velopments from the outside. Before
considering actual intervention by
United States troops or the lifting of
tlu embargo on arms and ammuni
tion along thi' Mexican border the ad
ministration is now determined to wait
upon a illsi'losure of tho nttltudc of
the European powers toward the pol

In other words, the president and
Ills advisers life hopeful that Iluertn

that if the powers will declare them

short time before hi- will be obliged

Some encouragement :'or this policy
Is found In Premier .Vsquith's speech
In London. The belief Is that it will
go far toward disillusioning Hucrtn of
his confidence that tho European pow
ers will stand by him.
Asquith's Speech Indefinite. .
When analyzed, however, it Is ac
knowledged here that Asquith's speech
contains no definite pledges as regards
the details of Great Britain's policy
toward Mexico. .There Is no statement
that the British government will pub
licly indorse tho stand taken by the
United States in Insisting that Iluertn
must go and in refusing to recognize
his acts or the acts of tho congress
about to convene.
On tho other hand, tho Asqulth
speech contains a distinct reminder
that the British government will ex
