Although the rains in the immediate

Ambassador Sayt He Feels
Justified in Giving Out
Hit Statement.
However, li la Known That President
Wilson Is Very Angry, and There
May Be Developments,

Washington, Aug. 14. Ambassador
to Mexico Henry Lane Wilson, who
stands in imminent peril of Immediate
dismissal by President Wilson for his
issuance of a statement replying to the
British foreign official's declaration
that Groat Britain recognized Huerta,
provisionally, only after Wilson had
publicly lauded the Mexican dictator,
today reiterated his criticisms. Wilson
also admitted having given Senator
Smith inside information of the Mexi
co City situation.
"I feel justified," said the ambas
sador, "in stating what I did in an
swer to what purported to be an offi
cial statement by the British foreigi
office, reflecting on my course in Mex
ico. I have not attempted to embar
rass the Wilson administration, and
have studiously avoided making state
ments which might endanger the suc
cess of the president's negotiations. I
am still of the opinion that the state
ment of the British foreign office was
misrepresented by the newspapers which
printed it."
Wilson said that neither Secretary
Bryan noi President Wilson had asked
for bis immediate resignation.
It is reported, however, that Presi
dent Wilson is a very angry man, be
cause the ambassador has again injected
himself into a situation from which he
was tacitly dismissed.
Officials hore expect that John Lind,
the president's envoy, will take deci
sive action in Mexico City. His task,
it is believed, will be easior through
Great Britain's announcement that she
would recognize Huerta only in his ca
pacity of provisional president. This,
it is thought certain, will tend to dis
courage Huerta, and will make him
more amenable to Lind's demands.
