"Straightforward and forceful in the now familiar Hughes manner is the statement of the Secretary of State regarding Mexican relations.

"While void of belligerency, this program is firm in its adherence to a principle without which no enduring structure of amity between the two republics can be reared.  The question refers directly to the meaning of the retroactive clauses of the Carranza constitution of 1917, which appear to jeopardize American property rights in Mexico secured before that date.

"Mr. Hughes is anxious to know precisely how the Obregon Government proposes to interpret that legislation."
