THE ARRIVAL OF LIND
CALMS ALL FEARS
COURSE OF EVENTS IN MEXICO IS
President Wilson Says People Un
known to Him Seem to Desire
Washington, Aug., 11.?Distinct relief
was apparent in official circles
here today over the course of events
in Mexico. The statement of Frederico
Gamboa, the new Mexican minister
of foreign relations, that he had
"oroot foifh in tVio roocnnoWonocs of
C3A v^fc*V/ wa AXJ. A VU^VUUK/AV^V^M vj.
the judgment of the United States,"
holding the conviction that the difficulties
between the two countries
"soon would be adjusted," produced
a very favorable impression in administration
circles. Secretary Bryan
commented optimistically on it and
the White house also were pleased.

Wilson pointed out during
the day to callers what seemed to
iim Conspicuous efforts on the part
of some people unknown to him,
through published misrepresentations, |
to involve the United States in inter
vention. He reiterated that the attitude
of this government toward
Mexico in the situation was one of
peace and friendliness solely.
The safe arrival in Mexico City of
John Lind, personal representative
and officially designated adviser to the
American embassy, ended some tense
moments in che situation. Adminis- j
tration officials tonight, looked forward
hopefully to a favorable reception
of their efforts to suggest measures
of peace in ending the struggle
between the contending factions in
>*o Rumors >"ow.
"With the air cleared of ^rumors of
hostility in the Mexican capital to
Mr. Liad's presence there, officials
were disposed to believe the program
of the American government
would be carried out quietly ana in
such manner as seemed most expedient
to Mr. Lind and the embassy at
y Mexico City. j
Capt. Capehart of the battleship
Michigan, which proceeded last
Thursday from Vera Cauz to Ciudad
Del Carmen as the result o! a complaint
to the State department by Mrs.
Phoebe H. Sears that rebels are
threatening American life and prop

erty in the region of her ranch near
that place, has reported that "American
subjects have not been threatened,
and American subjects and foreign
subjects have received proper
protection from the Mexican authorities."
Lind Ends Journey.
Mexco Cty, Mex., Aug. 11.?The ar
rival of John Lind, whose mysterious
mission to Mexico was the direct
cause of a public manifestation yesterday
in support of Gen. Huerta's
attitude toward American dictation,
has of itself been devoid of any
When Mr. Lind, as the personal
representative of Mr. Wilson, alighted
from his train last night, after a
tedious day's journey from Vera Cruz,
there were only a few persons about
the station wno seemed at all curious
to watch his movements. Numerous
pemwspaper photographers were on
hand to subject him to the ordeal of
flashlights and Mr. Lind obligingly
posed for many pictures.
Mr. Lind persistently maintained
that taciturnity ^hich he has observed
carefully since he was summoned
from bis home in Minnesota
by President Wilson to undertake his
mission to Mexico. Just what he is
to do here or just when he will begin
the ngotiations for which he has
come are as great a mystery as before
He was accompanied to the capital
by Mrs. Lind, by William W.
Candia, the United States consul at
Vera Cruz, and by Dr. William Bayard
Hale, acting under instructions of the
S^te department. The party was
received by Nelson O'Shaughnessy,
secretary of the United States embassy,
who has been acting as charge
d'affaires since the resignation of Ambassador
Wilson, and Chas. E. Par*
Ker, a niemuer ojl uue emuci&aj scan..
Police in large numbers guarded
the approach to the station, but as
the party was driven off to a hotel
"where reservations had been made,
the public generally assumed an apathetic
Mr. Lind and his wife did not come
to Mexico prepared for anything but
a brief visit, traveling with little
baggage. The departure for Mexico
was so hurried that it occurred to
ne '.her Mr. or Mrs. Lind that warmer
clothing would be wanted in the Upland?
