A CRAVE SITUATION.
PRESIDENT WILSON'S VACCILA-
(Per Press Association—Copyright).
WASHINGTON, March 2. President \vilson, in i receiving prominent callers, gave the impression that he fully realised the gravity of the Mexican situation, and pointedly referred to certain eventualities which might mean a drastic course of action.
It is understood that if Britain allows Benton's case to await adjudication until a stable Government •■•has been established in Mexico, the United States will agree to that course.
President Wilson emphasised ne fact that foreign nations had no ri^ti;. to demand that f the United States should look after their subjects, neither ] could they demand it if General Carranza insisted on his right not to deal with vany Government-in; the interests of'any othei* Government. If they did, a; very grave situation would be produced, and the United States would .* be compelled to take action.
