LONDON, February 23

Benton, who was executed in Mexico, was a native of Keig. His father was a farmer, and Sir John Benton, formerly of the India Public Works Department, was his cousin. The. "Daily Mail" says that admittedly Mexico is within the sphere of American interest, but there is a limit to everything. The limit is nearly reached when British subjects are done to death. The "Times" says that unless '-■(„ is proved that Benton deserved his fate opinion in America and Britain will require exemplary punishment. .The "Morning Post" thinks jt incumbent on President Wilson soon to announce a plan v, of obtaining security for the. lives and property of foreigners in Mexico, or declare that Monroeism and United States policy are, not opposed to other countries' action to secure the welfare of their own subject^ in> Mexico. The "Financial News " says that if Benton's murder was not traceable -o President -Wilson's door it may be regarded as the consequences of, his recognition of the rebels and removal of the embargo on the importation of arms and ammunition into Mexico. The present disturbed situation may continue indefinitely unless some strong action should be taken.
