DIAZ AND TAFT
President of Mexico Suggests
' Change in Nicaraguan
WASHINGTON. The attitude of
the Mexican government toward the
Madriz cause In Nlcarugua was made
plainer, when correspondence which
recently passed between President
Diaz and President Tait uu the sub
Ject became public.
President Diaz wrote President Taft,
as the result of the circulation of a
telegram Madriz sent to Central Amer
ican governments protesting against
the attitude of the United Slates In
"If these facts are exact In all de
tails," said President Diaz, after refer
ring to Madriz' protest, "1 permit my
self In the most friendly spirit, to rec
ommend most earnestly to your ex
cellency that you reconsider those In
structions of which Nicaragua com
plains to the end of permitting the
government of Madriz within a pru
dently brief period, to accomplish that
complete pacification which is of
fered." Information Erroneous, Says Taft.
Mr. Taft, In reply, said:
"I esteem your excellency's friendly
Interest In the relation of the United
States with Nicaragua. As your ex
cellency will have surmised, the tele
gram which Dr. Madriz ordered sent
to you, as well as telegrams sent to
other governments In which the con
tinuation of the struggle In Nicaragua
lu attributed to the policy of the
United States, . has evidently been
transmitted under erroneous Informa

and the principles of international
law applicable to the case."

' uncoupling it. When tinkering about
the coupling tiie engineer and fireman
managed to slip away In the darkness.
