WASHINGTON, Jan. 21. - Whiled
neither country has as yet approached
the other officially on the subject of
arbitration, the prospects of that
principle being adopted in an attempt
to settle the American-Mexican oil
and land law tangle at least have ad-
vanced a step with the announcement
by the Mexican foreign office that the
Calles government accepts arbitra-
tion in principle.
Previous to that announcement made
last night in Mexico City, President
P. Elias Calles has stated unofficially
that he might consider arbitration to
avoid a greater evil for his country,
and Secretary Frank B. Kellogg had
said that he had given that formula
consideration for possible application
in the present dispute. Neither has
indicated, however, whether a definite
official proposal would be made to
that end and both official pronounce-
ments thusafar have been made only
in press statements.
That made by the Mexican foreign
Soffice last night was very brief. Writ-.

"Answering numerous questions
with regard to the present publication

declares thattit is ready to accept

Senate Will Act On

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21.-The Nic-
araguan geustion comes to the fore
again today with a meeting by the,
Senate foreign relations committee
to consider whether it will make pub-
lic a "corrected" copy of Secretary
Kellogg's testimony before it and to
take up the resolutions calling for
withdrawal of American naval forces.
Although it is 'conceded that there
is slender prospect of any of these
resolutions being adopted, President
Coolidge believes that American ma-

araguan soil should not be kept there
any longer than the situation de-
Accepting the credentials of Ale-
jandro Cesar, first minister from
Nicaragua under the present Conser-
vative regime of Adolfo Diaz, the
President said Thursday that although
American forces had been landed,
with the consent and at the request
of Diaz, in order to protect American
lives and property and legitimate in-
terests of the United States, "this
state of affairs should not continue
longer than is necessary."
The minister told Mr. Coolidge that
Nicaragua "looks confidently to the
United States for guidance, co-opera-
tion and aid."
The president further answered
critics of his policy in Nicaragua by
asserting that the United States "has
{ no selfish ends or imperialistic de-
signs to serve" in that country.
"Least of all," he added in addres-
sing the minister, "have we any de-
sire to influence or dictate in any way
the internal affairs of your country."
"The United States," he continued,
'"desires the independence and the
I prosperity of every Central American
republic. The foundations for per-
manent stability within Nicaragua
must, of course, be laid by its own
government and I have, been pleased
to see that the initial steps for the eli-
mination of disaffection and the com-
posing of factional differences are al-
ready being taken."
