I.EXICAN SITUATION SIMMERS
DOWN TO WAITING AGAIN
Washington, May 13. Mexican
situation simmered down again to
day to watchful waiting.
While contraction of lines south
of Columbus is practically accom
plished, Major Langhorne's men ap
parently are on hot trail after Bo
quillas raiders and Carranzista sol
diers are reading toward Big Bend,
avowedly to co-operate in running
down raiders.
If nothing untoward occurs Amer
ican punitive expedition hopes to
make quick cleanup in policing
Carranza etaoi shrdluu
Northern Chihuahua. Meantime
Carranza forces are expected to
patrol Parral district. Hope of
catching Villa apparently is not
great
' The one great question of army
men is whether Carranza garrisons
can be kept in check after it is
known punitive expedition refuses to
quit Mexico. Privately, officials say
that conditions below Rio Grande are
such that there may be real trouble
at any time. ,
As matters now stand, officials
charged with handling Mexican
prohlem cannot be said to be pessi
mistic. They are merely keeping a
watchful eye on developments, with
realization that while situation has
unpleasant possibilities, American
work may go on without any hinder
ance. Mexican Ambassador Arredondo is
expected to undertake soon negotia
tions looking toward " troops with
drawal, but his task, according to
persistent statements, will be hopeless..
