Washington, Oct. 24. Charier that
Carrania Is preparing to leave Mexico
are being made freely hy his political
opponents In Mexico city. They are,
based upon his decision to leave Mexico
city for Queretaro, and the fact that
Mrs. Carranxa already has crossed the
bolder Into the United States, accom-
panled by the wife of her husband s Wnr i
Minister nnd chief supporter, Hen. Obrc-
Information to this effect Is reaching
ortlcliils here from various reliable ,
sources. So far nothing tangible tend-'
lug to support the story has come
through niriclal channels. It Is known. 1
however, that many oniclnls here believe
Carrania has committed n political blun
der at least. If he Is not In fact preparing
for fllrht, hy permitting his family to
leave Mexico Just at this time. The trip,
they say, was certain to be construed
by his enemies ns n confession of wen li
ners. The purpose of the visit of Mrs. Car
ranzu nnd Mrs. Obregon, as explained at
the Mexican Embassy. Is for a tour of
the United Htates. The arrival at Juarez,
on the border, of Mrs. Jnrlnto Trevluo,
wife of the military commnnder of Chi
huahua State, was hIso reported. It waa
pointed out that Oen. Trevlno has bem
among Carranxa's stanchest supjiorters.
and that If tip First Chief believed his
hold on the political situation was weak
ening. Trevlno very probably wou'd !
warned In order that he might also place
his famllv In safety.
The State Department had not re
ceived word to-night that Carrania and
Obregon had left Mexico city for Que
return. Previous advices, however, said
that the First Chief would go to that
plnce In connection with the meeting of
the constitutional convention, for which
delegates were elected last week. This
Is the only explanation obtainable hero
for Carranxa's departure from his capi
tal. Many War Department officials have
privately expressed their conviction that
the rie facto Government, or nt least
Carranxa's personal control of the polit
ical situation, was growing weaker
The main point urged by Carrania In
asking for the withdrawal of the Ameri
