American prisoners interned in the
penitentiary at Chihuahua City be
taken to Juarez and there, with their

CARPA NZ A MORL CONCILIATORY
Note from First Chief Will Re Deliv
ered Officially To-day.
Washington, July 4.-Gen. Car
ranza's reply to the demands of the
United States reached the Mexican
embassy here to-day and will be de
livered to Secretary Lansing to-mor
row. If it ls correctly described by
persons close to the embassy, it is
conciliatory in language and tone
and designed to offer a basis for am
icable adjustment of difficulties be
tween tho two governments.
As all Washington was celebrating
the Fourth of July, Eliseo Arredon
do, the Mexican ambassador desig
nate, made no attempt to seek an Im
mediate engagement to present the
communication. Instead he directed
an employee to give out such infor
mation as it was deemed advisable
to make public in advance of deliv
ery of the note, and then, with mem
bers of his staff, left Washington to
spend the holiday at a summer re
Relieved Crisis Una Passed.
In spite of the reservo pending
study of the text of the note, the
general feeling here was that the
crisis which has been only a step
from actual war had passed. If the
unofficial version of the reply is
borne out there undoubtedly will be
a resumption of friendly diplomatic
negotiations, and in the absence of
further serious border raids or Un
warranted attacks upon American
troops there will be little danger of
! a break.

whose ever duty it may be, start the
thought going that Walhalla could

the trees, that still live, and starting
some grass to growing?
