WASHINGTON, April 11. The tense
situation created here by the arrest of
American marines by Mexican authori
ties at Tampico was greatly relieved
today with the "-eceipt of General
Huerta's prompt repudiation and appl
ogy for the action, forwarded from
Mexico City by Charge O'Shaughnessy.
While no definite statement was ob.
tainable in official circles it was
broadly intimated that the necessary
redress for the affront had been af
Reporting developments to the Navy
department. Rear Admiral Mayo, in
command of the American naval force
at Tampico. cabled that he had de
manded that the Mexican commander
salute the American flag in expiation
of the affront. His message said he
had given the Mexican officer 24 hours
from 6 o'clock Friday night to comply
No late details have been received.
Officials at the State and Navv de- I
r.artienta considered the statement 1

ised an Immediate investigation of
..i-fi nf I
Colonel Hinojosa's action in arresting
tho marines and parading them public
ly through the streets, and the official
statement issued by the State Depart
xuent added that General Huerta had
promised that "if the investigation
should develop a greater responsibility
on Colonel Hinojosa the penalty ap-
plicable to the case will be Imposed
by the competent legal authorities.
General Huerta's good faith was ac
cepted, apparently, without reserve-
tion, and It was pointed out that it was
only fair to await the result of the
promised Investigation and discipline
of the Mexican officer responsible for
the humiliation of the American Navy.
Admiral's) Discretion Trnated,
The Department, it was said, has is
sued no instructions to Rear Admiral
Mayo directing either the withdrawal
or enforcement 'of his demand for a sa
lute. Officials here are disposed to
rely on that officer's discretion and
are certain he has been informed of
the unqualified terms of General
Some doubt was expressed whether
the salute would be demanded for
what was termed an "irresponsible
act" by a subordinate officer, espe
cially in view of the prompt and full
apology from the government in Mex
ico City. One official, who is an au
thority on naval precedents, said he
knew of no instance In which a salute
had been given the American colors
in like circumstances.
Exact Precedent Lacking.
This officer, delving Into yellowed
archives for a precedent, found noth
ing more closely resembling the Tam
pico case than a civil war incident in
which a British man-of-war enforced
a salute from a Confederate shore bat
tery and then declined to return the
courtesy for fear such action would be

WASHINGTON", April 11. The view
of Thomas Woodrow Wilson on the
structure of the American Government,
as expressed In a magazine article
published In 1879, were presented to

Johnson, of Washington, who explained
that the writer was the present Presi

"Thomas W. Wilson," said Repre
sentative Johnson, referring to the
magazine article, "says that Congress
is a deliberative body In which there Is
little deliberation ' and a legislature
which legislates with little real dls-
