By International News Service.
MEXICO CITY, via Galveston, Feb. 11 (midnight).
A report which is "believed to be authentic, la to thc
effect that General Slanqucb refused to leave Toluca
with his troops at Madero 's orders. Ho received a
telegram from Diaz, however, and then decided to
come to help Diaz. Blaunuet left Toluca today with
Ills troops for this city, but was stopped by bunted
bridges, which he will try to ropalr to arrive hero in
tASIUNGTON Feb. 12. As a result of aa
JI early morning conference at the "White

sent to thc east coast of Mexico today, and orders
will be issued at once for the immediate placing M
in commission of two army transports for the.
transport or troops to Mexico City for the pro
tection of the lives of Americans and foreigners, '
should the situation there grow any worse. fl
Evidently recognizing that a crisis in the Mcx
iean situation had been reached, President Taft
summoned to the "White house Secretary of State fl
Knox, Secretary of War Stiinson and Secretary ( fl
of the Navy Meyer, together with a number of fl
army and navy officers, shortly after midnight:
CONFERENCE DISCUSSES CRISIS. H
At :30 o'clock this morning the last of those
summoned had arrived and, with Secretary Hilles,
a conference was begun in the library of the
The officers in the conference a.rc Major Gen- 'M
eral Wood, chief of staff of the army; Brigadier
General William Crozier, president of the war
college; Brigadier General James B. Aleshire
chief of the quartermaster's corps of the army, and
Rcar Admiral Bradley A. Lskc of the inspection
department of the navy.
A general discussion of the availability of
troops aud marines for instant dispatch was begun
as soon as all had arrived.
HILLES OUTLINES THE PLANS. H
Shortly before 2 o'clock Secretary Hilles is
sued the following statement:
"After a conference called by thc president
with the secretaries of state, of war and of
the navy, it was not believed that the news
from thc City of Mexico required any action
of an affirmative character, oilier than to
order three more battleships to Vera Cruz. iH
These, including the one ordered to Tampico,
will make four battleships on the gulf side )
of Mexico, or one division of tho fleet under ;H
the command of an admiral. 'H
The war department will hold itself in H
readiness, but no affirmative action was di
rected to be taken by the secretary of war.
except to put two transports now at Newport
News iu commission.
HOPE TO AVOID INTERVENTION
These transports will receive troops, H
should further action be deemed necessary. ,H
Thc purpose merely is to take precautionary
steps to protect. Americans and foreigners in
the City of Mexico, should conditions of vio
lence continue and anarchy succeed.
The attitude of thc government still is
strong against intervention, and it was deter- '
mined to take no steps at this time which
would commit us to such a policy, and to
take only the reasonable precautions to meet
