statue of Washington be replaced on
the pedestal from where it was torn
during the anti-American riots, a re
vulsion of feeling toward the United
States has been experienced here by
citizens and the press alike. The be
lief that the Americans will evacuate
Vera Cruz as soon as a dully elected
president is Installed grows every day.
The Mexican press is coming forward
with demands that reparation be
made in full to all Americans who suf
fered. Carbajal is in complete control of
the situation here. Government of
ficials charge reports that the city is
about to fall before Zapata are being
circulated by a clique with head
quarters in Washington with a view
to obtaining intervention. Certain
interests that would profit by inter
vention are backing this clique, it is
declared. It is believed here there
is no danger of Zapata effecting an
entrance. The government troops are
easily strong enough to hold the city
against any Zapatista attack. The
capital is tranquil.
