and consequently does his own type
writing, today began "typing" a ten
tative draft of the message he pro
poses sending to Congress upon the
Mexican situation, which will relate
in detail the negotiations conducted
through John Lind with the Huerta
government, together with the re
plies of the latter. The message will
be the longest yet transmitted by the
president to Congress.
It is believed, although no state
ment has been made, that further
recommendations regarding the
course of this government will be
made, and it is possible that an en

instituted by the present administra
tion. Pending presentation of the presi
dent's message, developments in the
Mexican situation are at a standstill.
Secretary Bryan has warned Pres
ident Huerta, General Carranza, the '
rebel commander, and local Mexican
officials at LaBoquillo that they will7
be held personally responsible if any '
harm comes to Shirley C. Hulse, son-in-law
of Lieut.-Gov. Reynolds of
