MEXICO t 'ITT, Aug. 11. Official
Mexicans appeared today to regard with
much pessimism the outlook for peace
Attempts probably will be made to re
open negotiations with General Orozco,
but it is generally believed tho rebel
leader in tho north will resist overtures
by the government. He was reported
in a spcelal telegram as having refused
to meet General Huerta at a point south
of Juarez and there surrender, adding
that he would lead bis forces Into the
capital Itself within a month.
An echo to the charge by the Mexican
government that Senator Fall was re
sponsible for the failure of Minister Her
nandez to bring about an agreement be
tween I he government and Orozco was
contained In a special dispatch from El
Paso today, in that it was charged that
Senator Fall, In E) Paso, has negotiated
With the rebels, not for the purpose of
preventing Orozco from entering the
United States territory, but to keep the
war going. It. was charged that he rep
resented a group of American bankers
wboFe interests, it wa-s alleged, would be
favored by the continuation of hostilities.
In this paper it was asserted that the
American government had served notice
on Mexico that peace must be restored at
an early date. No confirmation of tills
assertion could be secured.

Senator Fall, "but I have had absolutely
