Madero cabinet, baB virtually been
agreed upon by leaders ot the Villa
Zapala coalition for the provisional
presidency of Mexico shoudl agree
ment with the Carranza faction be
Teagle took no part In the revolu
tionary activity. He did not resign
when Huerta overthrew the Madero
administration. Recently he has lived
in the United States.
Villa's peace overtures to Carranza
haven't borne fruit. Information from
Vera Cruz indicates Carranza is un
willing to enter a conference with" his
adversary. Carranza insists his forces
soon will obtain military supremacy
which will merit recognition.
President Wilson told caller's today
he believed the Mexican situation is
shaping Itself more definitely. He did
not reveal the administration plans.

tle of Leon by a Bhell, which injury

was tho onlv Carranza general who.
. Gen. Benjamin Hill has been ap
pointed to succeed him in command.
While Villa's promises have not
the value in Washington that was ac
corded to them a year ago, lt still
seems likely that his offer to com
promise with Carranza will receive a
certain amount of moral support here,
it ls generally believed that Villa
bas placed a better face on hiu posi
tura than has Ca.-ranza. who stands
absolutely unyielding, asserting that
he 1B the person authorized by the
Mexican people to rule the country
It ls expected, however, that nothing
short of actual force behind Villa's
proposal for a new union of factions
will Influence Carranza.
Alvaro Obregon, student farmer
inventor and lastly a soldier, was
born in Sonora and he boasted that
the blood of the Yaquis flowed tn hie
velnB. He was about 35 years old cad
until a little more titan a year ago he
devoted himself entirely to peaceful
work, taking up soldiering only when
he felt that the needs of Mexico-a
living wage for the Mexicans, schools
for the young and a safe government
demanded bis services.
Washington. June 15.-'President
Wilsop told callers today that the
plans the United States for deal
ing with the Mexican situation were
not definitely determined BB yet. but
that the situatHon seemed tn he tak
ing shane. The president had before
him the proclamation ot General
Carranca and a memorandum from
General Villa In answer to the presi
dent's recent statement to the fac
tion's that ' they must adjust their
differences, or some, means owuld
be found by the Uoited States to re
store governmont lo Mexico. Mr.
Wilson has not studied the documents
In detail, but indicated that he in
tended to examine them closely.
