FUNSTON SENDS URGENT
CALL FOR MORE MEN;
HUERTA'S FALL NEAR
Tells War Department It Is Believed Quick
March to Capital Must Be Made
to Quell Anarchy.
HARD TO GET TYPE OF ENVOYS WANTED
President Wilson Seeking Diplomatic Experts in Sympathy
with His Mexican Policy to Serve in the Peace
Conference at Niagara Falls, Ont.
General Funston sent an urgent message to the Wat Depart?
ment late last night calling for more troops to be sent to him It was
believed in Washington that the general had learned that the fall of
Huerta was imminent, and that conditions in Mexico City would re?
quire a quick advance to the capital by the Americans.
President Wilson is having difficulty in finding men to name as
the American delegates to the mediation conference who meet his
test of experience and character and are in sympathy with his Mexi?
can policy. It is expected that one of the delegates will be a member
of the United States Supreme Court.
The mediators are framing a programme to be submitted to the
conference in Niagara Falls. Ont., on May 18.
Huertas delegates to the peace conference expect to start on
mission from Mexico City to-morrow.
One of the rebel aviators flew over Mazatlan and dropped bombs
into the city, killing four persons and wounding eight.

FUNSTON URGENT IN
CALLING FOR TROOPS
Fall of Huerta May Require
Quick Advance on
-1-. ,>n, 7-v,,, Tribune Bureau. 1
Washington. May 7.?A lone: ?-ipher
message from General Funston reach?
ed the War Department to-night whi.h
caused much agitation among the mili?
tary authorities. While the Secretary
of War refused to -rive any intlmatl"n
of its ? entente, it was disclosed by
other.?; that the American commander
believed his force at Vera Cruii should
bs Increased, ?nd that tentative pt
rangements wers being made for ?end?
ing additional cavalry regiments and
Secreter? Garrison Immediately
upon receipt of the first paragraph of
General Funston's message, summoned
1 the Chief of Staff, General Wothers
poon. and several members of the Gen?
eral Board, and they held a conference
for an hour.
.Secretary Garrison said later, that
General Funston had transmitted
some Information which refugees had
brought from Mexico City as to condi
tiuns in the Mexican capital. The Sec?
retary ?aid, however, that no ag?
gressive movement of any kind by th?
American forces was ordered.
It was understood that the .efugees
from Mexico City had informed Gen?
eral Funston of the critical aspect of
affairs In the Huerta regime, that a
collapse might be expected momentar?
ily, and that conditions of anarchy
' might ensue. The purpose of General
Funston In ma'ting known these re?
ports to the War Department was be?
lieved to be to advise the Washington
administration of the possibilities that
might develop from a fall of Huerta,
, in order that if the American army
i Is compelled to rescue foreigners or
restore order it may be fully erj-iipped
I for such an expedition.
Though not officially stated, it is
known that the high officials of the
' War Department are anxious to place
at Vera Crtll or on transports within
striking distance a large enough force,
perhaps fifty or sixty thousand men,
, to make an expedition to Mexico City
If It becomes necessary. Officiais of
\ the War Department are known to be?
lieve that if an advance on M'exi- o City
Is ordered it will he necessary to guard
, every mile of the railroad as the army
mores forward, and that a large force
would show the natives the futility of
reek"tance? whereas a division of fifteen
thousand men might be SObjectSd to
severe attacks along the route, with
; possibly big losses.

Father William Cashin. the Catholic chaplain of Sing Sing,
who was instrumental in obtaining the confession of "Dago Frank"
Cirofici, one of the gunmen executed for the murder of Herman
Rosenthal, was subpoeaned yesterday as a witness for Becker.
Warden Clancy of Sing Sine, was also subp?naed by the defence.
Miss Katharine B. Davis, Commissioner of Correction, accused
Becker of being the head of a vicious conspiracy among the pris?
oners of the Tombs to discredit her administration. His prison
privileges have been cut off.
An investigation was begun yesterday which may result in a
charge of contempt of court against W. Bourke Cockran, of counsel
for Becker, because of remarks credited to him Wednesday in the
newspapers, reflecting on the court.
Only two new jurors were obtained at yesterday's session of
court, making six in the jury box so far. William R. Dalton who
occupied seat No. 2, was excused by Justice Seabury.
