A financial crisis is expected at almost

Special Kniny Sent by Bryan Is
Konr on Ills Way.
Washington, lr. 14. Secretary of
State Bryan Is sending George C. Car
ethers, formerly Consul at Torreon. Mex
ico, as special representative of the
TJnltrd States with a protest to Gen. Villa
against the lutter's treatment of the Span
ish residents of that city. Tills action of
the State Department became known hero
Mr. Caiotheis carries instructions to
make vIroious demand upon Gen. Villa
for decent and humane treatment of all
foreigners In Chihuahua and the respect
ef the perrons and their property.
He lias been Instructed to Inform Villa
tliat it is beyond doubt that his treatment
of the Spaniards will create a most pain
ful Impiesslon In tho United States, when
his acts are compared with the principles
upon which the Constitutionalist leaders
at supposed to be proceeding. Carothers
has bren nt Texas City recently and is
pioeeedit.ft by way of Kl Paso.
The State Department has already re
ceived appeals for aid on behalf of the
Spanish colony of Chihuahua, members of
which were foiocd by Villa to leavn the
city under pen illy of execution. Reports
fiom tho border are to the effect that
Villa has been utility of all sorts of out
rsgi.i In his tientmenl of the Spaniards.
It is alleged that he has threatened to
scent d similar treatment to Americans
nnd other foretellers as soon as he has
dispiecd of the Spahlaids.
Mi. llln Will Oppose C'arransa.
The Inipnsdon prevails here that Villa
6w, not concede the authority of any
one, not even lien. Canama, over hts
actions, and that he will continue to
e.i(relsc dispotlc pow er in Chihuahua un
less compelled by some supeiior force to
modi rate his ronduct.
The prediction has been frequently
made iin-f hU oapture of Chihuahua that
he is planning to turn nKalnst Carranza
st the III st convenient opportunity, or at
least demand from him very substantial
letognltlun in case of tho huccess of the
.Seuietaiy Rr.v all's sending of Caroth
ers lb convincing evidence uf the Impres
sion that has Ions been glowing here that
the Washington Administration has been
losing faith In a solution of the Mexican
problem by the i.einstltutlotiallst leaders.
The sending of the uioy also raises the
question whether Spain may not havo
lequisteil that this Government take
more vigorous steps to pioloct Spanish
life ami piopetty In Mexico.
Reports of the failure of the Constitu
tionalist attack upon the city of Tamplco
were continued to-night In despatches re
reived nt the Navy Department from Ad

Admiral Fletcher stated that the fight

city. The Federals ure left In full pos
