CUBAN M'EXICANRJSS
. INVOLVED IN DOUBT
Just What Rupture of Relations,
If They Are Ruptured, Is Over
li Not Clear To Havana Nor
Washington
WASHINGTON, May 26
( Associated Press) While
the Mexican foreign minister ha
notified the state department in
i lavana that the sudden and un
explained recall from Cuba of the
Mexican chaige d'affaires and the,
handing of his passports to' the,
Cuban minister in Mexico are not
to be taken to mean that a rup
ture in the relations between the
two Republics has been brought
about, and while Sub-Secretary of
State Patterson of Cuba has de
nied that the relations between
the two countries are necessarily
broken, there is an opinion here
that the Cuban-Mexican situation
means much more to. the United
States than appears on the sur
face. Those here most familiar with
Latin-American affairs think that
Mexico's break with Cuba is only
the forerunner of more direct ac
tion on the part of President Car
ranza against the United States,
possibly the suspension of all in
tercourse. While practically noth-
inn has been made public, it IS
known in well advised circles here
that there h.as, been increasing
friction of late in the relations be
tween the two countries, due to
the presence in Mexico of a host
of German agents working to.
create an anti-American senti
ment throughout Mexico.
EXACT STATUS HAZY
The exact Mexican-Cuban sit
uation is doubtful, there being a
wide divergence in the various in
terpretations put upon the depar
ture from i lavana of the Mexican
charge, and despatches from Ha
vana indicate that there is equal
uncertainty there as to the exact
attitude of Mexico or the exact
impression the recall of her rep
resentative is intended to create.
It is understood here that the
direct grievance held by Mexico
against Cuba arises over the fact
that the Mexican minister to the
Argentine was delayed in Hava
n a, where h i's baggage was
searched by the Cuban authori
ties. This is taken as an insult
to the Mexican diplomatic ser
vice, the envoy being treated as
i! under suspicion of serving Ger
many. Whatever the reason for the
1 riiik, it is believed here that it
will not be unwelcomed in Cuba,
as ttie Cuban authorities will now
have a freer hand in the matter
of Mexicans suspected of being
German agents in Cuba.
The Mqxicij (mb,ssaclor. hare
slates that he ha,9 hot been ad
vised of the reason for the dismis
sal of the Cuban minister from
M exico.

Without the prendre and the warn

to the enemy, American forces in a
sector on the Picardy front conducted
a silent raid upon the Huns.
With no protection other than the
ordinary hrtillery fire which Is prac
tically constant, American forces stole
forth quietly and advanced across No
M jin's Land Friday nilit, taking ad-
vuntage or such concealment as natur-
1 conditions offered and the resulting

They killed a number of the enemy
and brought biek prisoners with them,
returning after suffering only alight

In the Toul sector Friday and Satur
day were the quietest days the Ameri

over their positions. On Friday night
a patrol party proceeded into the Ger
man lines and went forward as far as
the second line of defenses without
encountering an enemy.

Harold M. Clark and Bgt. Robert

the lens of the fine gfnflrx camera will

of the camera will be worth salvaging,
having lain in the dump jungle under
growth for more than half a month,
exposed to rains, but the lens will be
as good as ever unless it was damaged
by flames when the army men fired the
machine to attract attention.

now on the island of Hawaii. Boon af
ter arriving at Hilo they made arrange
ments to disappear into the jungle and
locate the machine. They left Hilo
Thursday morning for the scene and
hoped to be able to locate it from the
description given them by Major Clark.
The board may return to Honolulu
Tuesday morning.
Go To Pun Oo Banco
The party made their way from Wai
mea to Kalaiehn (llumuula sheep sta
tion) where they were met by Dr. V.
Bhntte, manager of the Puu 6o ranch,
saya the Hilo Tribune. At Wai men
the officers were met by Alfred Carter,
manager of the Parker ranch. From
KaJaiehu the party proceeded to with
in six miles of the Puu Oo ranch head
quarters, ami then mounted horses for
the remainder ef the journey.
.The officers will try to locate the
wrecked seaplane and make a survey of
its eonfiition so that they can report to
headquarters in Honolulu. It is est
petted the plane will be found with
out much trouble, as the elevation ef
which It landed un the memorable
flight pf, Major Clark is known. It
waa at the .37(H) foot elevation that
the machine came down.
Japanese Sent Out
While the officers are busy making
their way to Puu Oo ranch ether plans
te aid in .the discovery of the airship
haVe been begun "under the leadership
of Iieut-Col. I. 8 Bowman of Hilo,
who has been so deeply interested in
the air voyage of Major Clark ever
since the journey was' first mentioned.
Colonel Bowman has -made arrange
ments to have a party of Japanese, all
of whom are expert woodsmen, make
their way along a pig trail that runs
on the bank of the Wailuku Rivet
from Kaiwiki to the point where the
other stream, down which Major Clark
and Sergeant Gray found their way to
civili cation, joins the main watercourse.
Colonel Bowman met the visiting offi
cers yesterday morning and informed
them of the arrangements that had
beeu made for the search for the sea
plane. He told them that the easiest
way for them to reach Puu Oo n h
'sas to go to Walmea and theu to the
Humuulu sheep station, and thence to
the home of Manager Shutte.
Discovery Believed Sure
The Japanese who left Hilo yester
luy took with them an aneroid so they
will know when they have reached the
right elevation. They will then search
Ihe i'uua side of the stream down
which Major Clark and his compauHni
wandored. In the meantime the nth'
cers will go down from Iuu Oo aKmg
trail that leads in the general direc
tion of the spot the seaplane is thought
'o have landed. It is considered nl
most certainty that either the .hip
anese or the army officers will come
across the seaplane.
It is not known what will be done
with the remains of the seaplane. It
will depend upon the report ma Ic by
the survey board. 1 hat the engine inav
