Meanwhile Washington has become
the gathering place of Mexicans and
Americans Interested In the Administra

of the Intentions of the Administration

Interested In the Administration's plans
for Mexico, many persons were doubt
ful of the effectiveness of the measure
proposed for peace. It was admitted
that In the event of vigorous action be
Inir necessary to support n new gov

nlone will have to undertake It. Con
setpicntly, the wisdom of calling In thj
representatives of the other Govern

that their participation may hamper
the United States.
The fear here Is that support of some
new nnd Independent group In Mexico
will merely prove to bo n circuitous
route to nrmed Intervention by the
It Will Aid Minority.
It nlready has been clearly Indicated
that Carranzn will not lend himself to
the kind of cooperation hitherto de

that In any nttempt to eliminate him
tho United States will be on the side
of the minority.

reply to the German note In the Frye
case has been prepared at the State
Department. It Is expected It will re
ceive the approval of Secretary Lan

final approval within a fe days.
It was Indicated to-day that officials
of the State Department are disposed
to consider the German Government's
offer to pay for the sinking of the Frye

acceptance Is not to be regarded as a
concession by the I.'nlted Stntes of nny

It be understood that such nctlon was
