Washivoto, Aug. 9. President Wil
ton h.is given his npprovnl to the plan
framed by Secretary Ionising and the
Latin American diplomats who met with
him for the establishment of a consti
tutional government In Mexico.
The new policy, which provide for
11 adjustment of Mexico's troubles
through the medium of the convention
plan outlined heretofore In Washington
despatches to The Su.v, wilt bo made
public soon after tho adjournment of
th l'.in American conference, which
will meet at tho Illltmore Hotel In New

The soslons of the Mexican confer
ence In New York, In which Secretary
of State I-unsltig, Paul Fuller, Sr.. and
the six diplomatic representatives from
Argentina, Uracil, Chile, Ilollvla. Uru
guay and Guatemala will take part,
will continue all of Wednesday und pos
ltly run over Into Thursday,
"Watchful waiting" over Mexico will
then pass Into history to be succeeded
by an affirmative policy, which. It Is
hoped, will ivstoru peace In a country
that has been torn by revolution and
banditry for more than nvo jcuru.
Strim In lie Tnkrn.
The steps to bo taken by the United
6Ltt?, with tho moral support of Latin
America, nr0 substantially as follows:
1'ir.it An appt-11 will be made to
the Mexican ructions by the United
States and by each of the six Latin
American nations lo compose their
deferences In a convention, or by such
other means as they may regard as
Second If any faction fulls to ob
er' ' this Injunction the other fac

government, which will be n-cognlzed
bj the United States and the Latin
Third The faction that refuses to
uppoit the plan will be barred from
tho privilege heretofore! enjoyed of
obumng rupport of any kind from
.ther the United States or Latin
America. This nualis that the oppos
ing factions will be enabled to get
mu pment for military forces or funds
to further military operations.
I'ourth With .1 full understanding
of the purposes of the United States
and lttln America, Influential leaders
In Mexico will proceed to tho estab
lishment of a provisional government.
This Government will at once be rec
cgntzed by the United Statin and the
Fifth Through the good offices of
the Secretary of the Treasury a plan
will lie devised to finance the new Gov
ernment of Mexico.
.Nntloii Approvr- I'lnn,
To this plan for the. reestabllshment of
constitutional government in Mexico
Latin America as represented In the con
ference that will resume Its sessions on
Wednesday has given Its hearty ap
proval. However, If any exigency arises that
compels til" United States to Intervene
with an arnitil force the Uitln American
icpublles will withdraw from participa
tion In the endeavor of this Government
to restoie order south of the Texas bor
der and leave the situation to be han
tiled by the United States alone.
The Mexican problem will be simpli
fy d If First Chief Carranzu acquiesces
in the convention plun. As yet there Is
ro sign of his yielding. Yet It Is felt
lure that he, may be forced t give In
Mutually through desertions of his
moH prominent associate and the re
su.tant loss of thousands of his soldiers.
The outlook In the opinion of Wash
ington ollkials Is now more promising
than it has been nt any time and they
are hopeful that events will move rapidly

sharply around the foot of Mount

road falls sharply, forming an embank-

As tho While House car rounded the
curve a bright red car swerved and
then Flipped over the ten foot bank.

below. A word from the President

the other machine had gone over.

London, Aug 9. A despatch Just re
ceived from Petrograd announces that
a great German fleet of nine battleships,
twelve cruiser nnd many destroyers waa
defeated at the entrance to the Gulf

I first messages received details are en

The despatch simply says that tho
German fleet made persistent attack!
nt the entrance to the Gulf of Klga on
the day stated. There nrc no fortifica

books on Ilitssla nor on the war maps

the gulf. Unless they have b-en for

they would have no means of defen.o
except the mines.
Itnsslnn Fleet In (.tilf.
It Is known that a strong Itusslan fleet
Is In the gulf waiting for tho German
forces to appear within range. When
the Germans reached Scholck, ten miles
from Itlga, u week aso the Husslan ships
promptly drove them out with shells,
und It Is taken as certain that If the fleet
of the enemy did appear the Meet would
have at least cooperated with the shore
The despatch says that the Meet was
repulsed and that two tletroers were
damaged by'mtrres. Huslan sea planes,
which are undoubtedly part of the fleet,
are credited with effective work in
throning bombs nn the attacking ships,
but no results are announced.
The olllclal statement from Petrograd
wa as follows :
A German licet of nine battleships
and twelve dulsec. with a large
number of torpedo lio.it dcstiovets,
persistently uttaeked the entrance to
the Gulf of Hlga Sunday. Put every
