WASHINGTON, Aug. 27. President
Wilson tonight warned all Americans
to leave Mexico at once. At the same

the Southern republic were Instructed
"to notify all officials,- civil and mili
tary in Mexico" that they would be

after toward Mexico.
Aid Will Be Provided.
In these messages the Consuls were
Instructed to give every aid possible to
departing Americans, furnishing trans,
portation and any other pecuniary as
sjstance to the needy. They were in
r formed that a sufficient number of
ships would be provided to carry away
those in the seacoast towns.
Foreign governments will be noti
fied of the action of the United States,
so that they may give similar advice,
but -the American Consuls will help
- all foreigners in any emergency.
Within a day or two an announce

of a large number of American troops
along the southern frontier to enforce
neutrality in the traffic of arms and
munitions of war. It is believed that

already watching the international
These developments followed closely
on the reading by President Wilson of
his address to Congress today, in which
he outlined the policy of the United
States toward Mexico as one of absolute
non-interference and .strictest neutral
ity. The President held out hope for
a resumption of negotiations and ulti
mate success of a policy of persuasion
backed by the moral force of the gov

Gam boa Seada New Note.
First results of the President's op
timism were apparent tonight when
Secretary Bryan announced the receipt
of a message from John Llnd. now at
Vera Crux, saying that Senor Gamboa,
Minister of Foreign Affairs, had sent
a new note. Secretary Bryan described
the situation as "encouraging." and
commented on the fact that he had for
several days used the word 'un
changed. The Secretary said that, while the
Lind message contained only m sum
mary of the Gamboa note, sufficient had
been received to warrant taking an en
rouraglng view. Mr. Bryan added that
the Gamboa note was In reply to the
supplementary suggestions made by Mr.
Llnd before leaving Mexico City for
The President was informed of the

. Not only from the applause that greeted

with Senator Root, Republican. In the
Speaker's room Just before he was es
corted to the House rostrum, and
learned that the New York Senator soon I
would make a speech In support of the
Administration's policy. Mr. Root's ut
terances are calculated to attract at
tention In Latin America because of his
famous tour there a few years ago as
Secretary of State.
President Wilson went to Congress
today and revealed how the Huerta pro
visional government In Mexico had re
jected the friendship of the United
States and its effort to aid In the es
tablishment of peace and a government
which could be recognised by this Na
tion, and which would be obeyed and
respected by Mexico's own people.
In a statement which breathed re
gret and sympathy in every phrase,
the President clung tenaciously to op
timism as to the ultimate result, not
withstanding the pessimistic facts eon
fronting the two nations. After pictur
ing rbe hopelessness for Mexico If she
maintained her present position, "iso

fectually aid her." the President an
