United States Rushes Six Battle-Ships
to Mexico, Puts Troops in Readiness
and Intervention Seems Inevitable.
Fighting was resumed in the Mexican capital to-day. A shell
from a rebel field gun partly wrecked the Mutual Life Insurance
Building. Many Americans are in the direct line of fire.
The British Legation was under the fire of rebel guns.
A demand was made by the American and German Ambas
sadors that thr battle cease.
In Washington it is believed intervention by the United States
is inevitable. Six battleships are on the way to Mexican waters.
Four are to dash to Vera Cruz on the Gulf ooast and the others
will be on the Pacific.
The First Brigade of the First Army Division was ordered to
prepare for "expeditionary service."
Preparations are being made to move 2,500 marines from
Guantanamo to Vera Cruz.
