Mexico Will pe Asked Di

Which Have Caused Dif

(By (Me Associated Press)
Washington, June 15.—Washington of
ficials gave no indication today that a
public reply would be made to Presi
dent Calles’ objection to the administra
tion’s Mexican policy, but it was indi
cated that specific questions underlying
Secretary Kellogg’s position would be
made the subject of a formal communi
cation to the Mexican government.
A series of communications and rep
resentations have been sent to Mexico
City from time to time recently in va
rious canes in which this government is
interested, none of which have been made
public, and it was indirated that other
matters cited by Mr. Kellogg Saturday
would be the subject of a formal note.
After the return of Secretary Kellogg
to his desk today it was apparent that
for the present at least he saw no ob
ject in engaging in long range debate
with the Mexican president over a situa

CALLES BRANDS KELLOGG’S
WARNING AS AN INSULT
Regards American Statement as Em
bodying a Threat Which He "“Rejects
With All Energy.”
Washington, D. C.. June 14. —Presi-
dent Calles, of Mexico, in a statement
issued today by the Mexican embassy
here asserted that Secretary Kellogg's
statement last Friday contained a “threat’’
against Mexico’s sovereignty and that
the implication that Mexico stood "on
trial before the world’’ in the guise of
a defendant “in essence would only
mean an insult.”
Furthermore, President Cailes added,
“Mexico does not. accord to any sovereign
country the right to interview in her do
mestic affairs, nor is she disposed to sub
ordinate her international relations to
the exigencies of another country.”
Mexico, the statement 'continues, is
conscious of her international obliga
tions and is determined to comply with
them, as a proof of which it maintains
the establishment of claims commissions
for the consideration of claims held by
foreigners against Mexico for losses sus
tained during revolutions.
President Calles also regrets that Sec
retary Kellogg mentioned in his state
ment reports of an impending revolution
in Mexico, “since this last affirmation
tends to cast some alarm in the world In
regard to the conditions of my coun
“The statement that the government
of the United States will continue to
support the government of Mexico only
so long as it protects American interests
and lives and complies with its interna
tional engagements and obligations,” he
declares, “embodies a threat to the sov
ereignty of Mexico that she ean not
overlook and rejects with all energy.”
“The statement under reference also
affirms that the American ambassador
has succeeded in protecting American
as well as foreign interests, and if he has
thus succeeded, he has no right to charge
Mexico of failure to protect such inter
ests. and attention should be called to
the fact that said ambassador does not
represent any other foreigner, but his
own fellow citizens, and Mexico could
not admit that without her previous au
thorization the American ambassador
should act in behalf of persons or 'in
terests alien to those of his country.”
“If the government of Mexico, as af
firmed, is now on trial before the world.”
be says, “such is the ease with the gov
ernment of the United States as well as
those of other countries; but if it is
to be understood that Mexico is on trial
in the guise of a defendant, my govern
ment absolutely rejects with energy such
imputation, which in essence would only
mean an insult.”
