UNITED STATES SENDS ULTIMATUM TO HUERTA; MUST
ABDICATE AT ONCE; REFUSAL MEANS WAR WITH MEXICO
(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS CABLE.)
CITY PF MEXICO, November 4. Huerta must give up the reins of government, step down as the dictator of Mexico and see to it that none of his
partisans is selected as his successor. Ther.e is to be no dallying; this must be done immediately, and in no uncertain terms ihe ultimatum, containing this command
from the United States; was delivered to rluerta, direct from Washington last night. Coming so close as it did on the warlike demonstration of the Ameri-can
cruiser Tacorha in the haibor at Vera Ctuz yesterday it was expected that Washington had finally decided upon drastic action and the ultimatum was hot entirely
Refusal to obey the ultimatum, means invasion by United States fences and" whether Huerla will stand by his oft-made claim that he will brook no interference
in the affairs of Mexico "by outside nations will be definitely known within twenty-four hours. Yesterday afternoon many Americans who have remained,
here believing that a crisis would be averted prepared to Jeave. Charge d' Affaires O'Shaughnessy last night had the ultimatum from the United States conveyed
to President Huerta at .the National Palace. The message it is believed will be transmitted to the chamber of deputies tomorrow. That body is controlled by
Huerta. Charge d' Affaires O'Shaughnessy was in consultation with' diplomatic represenlatives of other nations here during yesterday afternoon and remained at
his post until late hour last a night. In the event of Huerta's refusal to abdicate, which is looked upon as probable, O'Shaughnessy will be handed his passport.

WASHINGTON, November 3. (Special to The Advertiser)
The United States today, after six months of secret work, is read
for immediate war at a moment's notice and can ai'm and lequyi
500,000 men for battle with any first-class power. This is the first
tiJte ill hJEtciy thrt this ccv.r.try has evor been on a war footing.
This condition is due largely to the untiring efforts of Lieutenant
Colonel J. T. Thompson of the ordnance department, who has been
laboring for more than half a year to bring about this condition,
under the direction of Brigadier General William Crozier, chief of
the department. Colonel Thompson's plans call for increasing the
regular army to the maximum limit, mustering into service the entire
militia throughout the United States, and raising the remainder of
the army of 509,000 men from the rank and file of citizens.
