A task to which the new Govern

President Huerta's Government an
nounces that It will correct the ubuses
that characterized the Mudero regime;
that grafting will be climlnutcd; that
necessary public works will be under
taken and completed; that foreign en
terprise and capital will be welcomed
and protected and that foreign Invest
ors may be assured of protection and
fair treatment. The Government Is
making a beginning with a close study
of many foreign concessions.
While recognizing that It Is facing
serious trouble In Coahulla nnd u few
other provinces, President Huerta's
Government Insists that yie reports of
uprisings and disaffection have been
exaggerated and that the Mudcrlstus
are sending out fulse news,
The Mexican Consul at Urownsvllle,
Tex., telegraphed the Secretary of For

day that the Americans nnd Mexicans

have declared for President Huerta and
that they art- preserving order.

ranza continues to defy the Huerta
Government, but It Is said here thnt
Carrnnza cannot control more than

stamp out the uprising. It Is true,
however, that Gen. Hucrtn, Gen. Diaz
and their ndvlsors are gravely con
cerned over the boldness of the op
position In Conhulla. Gen. Huerta, It
Is known, 1 planning repressive meas
ures. It is probable that a force of
2.000 well equipped Federal troops un

be sent against tho Cur ran za rebels

Is not concerned as to hi ability to

captured, although his followers will bo
treated leniently If they dlsbund. Ku

declared himself Governor of Morelos.
Troops will be sent against him.
President Huerta Is determined, his
ndvlsers say, to correct conditions that
have made anarchy In Mexico for three
years. These conditions have arisen
because thousands of desperate men
have found It easy to live by robbery
and have made a profession of rebellion.
Huerta has declared that such men will
be forced to lay down arms and return
to peaceful vocations.

John Kenneth Turner, the American
newspaper and magazine writer, who
has been embarrassing the new Gov
ernment by publishing Inflammatory
articles In VA 1'att, will probably be
deported by Gen. Huerta. American
residents say they approve tho course
the Government has decided on.
Turner has been in hot water since
the outbreuk of trouble In the capital.
Ho was Imprisoned In the arsenal by
Gen. Diaz because Diaz believed ho
was acting as a spy. Turner was of raid
that he would bo oxecuted. The Ameri
can Ambassador secured his release.
Shortly afterward tho wrltnr began pub
lishing In El Pats bitter attacks upon
the now Government. His articles
aroused the resentment ot Amei leans
and foreigners, und contributed to the
dejlcacy of a dlfllcult situation,
Americans protested vainly to ; Pat,
but the paper continued to print articles
by Turner on the subject of "Ameri
can Imperialism," and articles dealing
with "the tendency of tho I'nlted States
to gain possession of Iitln-Amerlcau
republics." The Government decided
that these articles were having n bad
effect upon the Ignorant.

Wasiiinutox, Feb. 2C Recognition
of the Huerta Government In Mexico
probably will be left to President -elect
Wilson, It was learned at tho State De
partment to-day. Officials of the Tuft
administration are of the opinion that
Inasmuch us .Mr. Wilson will enter upon
the Presidency with a delicate and
critical Mexican Ml tun Lion upon Ids
hands the question of recognition
should be left undecided between now
and March 4.
Though Ambassador WlIon Is In
favor of Immediate recognition of the
provisional Government, his views ure
not fully shared by the Btuto Depart
ment, it Is believed by the present Ad
ministration thut broader questions than
those involved in the present situation
In Mexico city make It advisable for
the United States Government to with
hold recognition of the Huerta Gov
ernment for tho present.
Abolute quiet In Mexico city and
more or less disturbance In the north
of Mexico, that Is the situation in the
southern republic to-day, according to
reports received ut the State Depart
ment from the American Kmbassy and
I'nlted States Consuls.
There Is practically no change In the
situation In Mexico or In the relations
of the fnlted States with the new Gov
eminent. It Is reported that Gov. Carranza of
Coahulla has taken tho field with troop
to oppose the Huerta Government In
Mexico city. Federal troops are ap
proaching the Governor's forces from
the direction of Monterey. Rebels are
likewise reported active In Sonora and
San I.uls Potosl, At N'ognles and nt
Hermoslllo considerable bad feeling 1'

At .Inures events ore moving more fa
vorably for the Huerta Government.
Four hundred soldiers known as Madero
volunteers laid down thoir urms last
night to officers of the garrison. Thoy
were offered their choice of enlisting
In the Federal forces of the new Govern
ment or of returning to their homes.
Mint of them are said to have decline 1
to Join the regular army. It Is re
ported at .tuarez that Inez Salazar, one
of Orozco's coleaders, will Join the ar
rlon at Juarez In a few days. Tho
majority of the city civil officers hav
abandoned their posts and fled ucroi
the river to Kl lao, Tex., leaving
the military In control of the city. The

Mn llemanil Indemnity.
There Is some possibility thut tho
Mutual Life Insurance Company nnd
the New York Llfo Insurance Company,
both of which held Insurance on the
life of Francisco I. Madero, may nsk
the State Department to demand an ex
planation from Mexico of the death of
Mudero and that an effort may be mado
on thi part of the companies to collect
an Indemnity from the Huerta govern
ment. Madoro had Insured his life In the
Mutual for $12,000 and In tho New York
for $25,01)0. His widow Is tho bene
llclary of both policies, '
"Whether we usk for an explanation

to-day that the new treaty with Nicar
agua, which grants to the I'nlted
States a perpetual and exclusive fran
chise for an Interoccanlc canul through
that country, also gives to the I'nlted
States a naval bae in the Gulf of Fon
seca. For these considerations the
I'nlted States agrees to pay Nicaragua
$3,000,000, to be applied to public works
or public education In that country.
The concession In the Hay of Foneca
is considered of more immediate im
portance than the exclusive grant of a
canal right of wuy.
The Gulf of Ponsecu Is one of the few
bodies of wuter on the west const of the
North Amerlrnn continent which afford
ample and deep harbor facilities. It
has often been called "the finest harbor
or constellation of haibors" on thn west
coast of the Western Hemisphere.
The waters of this gulf wush the
shores of three Cential American repub
lics, Honduras, Nicaragua und Salvador.
Tho gulf is ubout fifty miles long nnd
thirty wide with a douhle entrance from
the oceun, the two together being about
eighteen miles wide. The ly Is tilled
with a number of small Islands of vol

Heads Hint An.
Paterson, Feb. 2C John Illmson, Put
crson's small but active chief of police,
continues to dominate the strike of tho
silk workers, who are under the direc
tion of the Industrial Workers of the
World. There was hardly a sign of
trouble to-day, und though twenty
seven men were arrested, this waa
largely as a precautionary measure.
Chief Ulmson has evolved a plan to
keep outside ugltntors such ns Elizabeth
Gurley Flynn und Carlo Trescu of the I.
W. W. from making trouble. He has
ordered all public hulls in tho city
closed, nnd If tho strikers want to hold n
meeting they havo to go to him for n
permit. Then he tells them they can
meet on condition that outsiders are not
allowed to speak, He nttends tho meet
ings himself nnd the talkers carefully
refrain from advocating anything touch
ing on violence.
This plan worked fine to-day, Th
strikers had a meeting In Turn Hall
and the chief was the tlrst speaker.
He read the Slate riot act and warned
the strikers not to illsregnnl It or he
would have to bo harsh with them.
After that thn gathering resembled a
