Washington, Aug. 13. Americans

if Lind's peace mission fails; for the

rebels are recognized.
Lind will try to convince Huerta
to make important concessions and

any president who is elected by the
Mexican people.

agents are trying to get them out.
The fleet of U. S. warships on both
coasts are to help in this work.
Only word from Lind is that he is
progressing satisfactorily.
