Washington, April 14.?President
Wilson oday ordered virtually the
entire A la..tic fleet to Mexican waters
xj force a public salute to the Stars
and Stripes t'rem the Huerta govern-1
lr.ent as an apol gy for the arres? of
American sailors at Tampico last]
Thursday. No ultimatum has been
hnt i?< no snecified time has;
been set within which tr.e Huerta |
government must comply, but the1
iia\al demonstration has been ordered1
as a concrete evidence of the fixed de-,
termination of the United Sates to.1
back up Rear Admiral Mayo's de-'
mand for a salute. Up to Tonight J
Gen. Hureta had not made satisi'ac-J
tor.y response to that demand.
"Future development depend on
Huerta himself," was the way a high
administration official close to the
president summarized the situation.
The decision to send the fleet was
* reached after the president and Secretary
Bryan had conferred for an
v>/-v,ir. Trkhn T.inri nersnnal reDre
senta:ive of the president in Mexico,
and after a two-hour cabinet meeting,
during which dispatches from j
Charge O'Shaughnessy revealed that |
the Huer:a government disputed the j
right of American marines to be
ashore at Tampico and contended that
its recent public statement of apology
Fleet Makes Ready.
Immediately after the cabinet
meeting adjourned Secretary Daniels
issued his orders to the Atlantic fleet
and wireless messages flashed up and j
down the Atlantic coast to put the
flee: under steam for Tampico.
It will be the largest fighting force
the American gorvenment has assembled
for possible action since tile,
Spanish American war. Eleven grea:
battleships with auxiliaries, carrying
in all about 15.000 men, will comprise
the force off Tampico. j
Everywhere, at the White House,
the State department and the navy
department. :he hope was expressed
that t>e dispatch of the fleet would
not lead to se'"ious consequences and
There was a confident prediction
anion? administration officials that
Huerta w uld satisfy tlie American
cl mand and close the incident. Officials
were careful to point out tnit
negotiations wi:h :he Huerta government
hud not ended and that The way
was still open to Gen. Huerta to
Meanwhile t'.:e navy department
sent comple'e instructions to Rear
Admiral Badger, commander-in-chief
of the Atlantic fleet, on board the
battleship Arkansas at Hamptcij
Roads. Rear Admiral Fiske, chief of
the bureau of operations, left here
for thp Roads tonigh: :o convey personally
to Admiral Badger the diplo.

Treatments for Cold and Croup
"My little girl, twelve years old,
caught a severe cold, and I gave her
three drops of Sloan's Liniment on sugar
on going to bed, and she got up in the
morning with no signs of a cold. A little
boy next door had croup and I gave
the mother the Liniment. She gave him
three drops on going to bed, and he got
up without the croup in the morning."

The foregoing ships are in addition

Florida and Prairie at Vera Cruz.
The torpedo boat flotilla at Pensacola,
Fla., has been ordered t*

While the navy moved on the At
laatic coast, Secretary Daniels toright
was giving his attention to tho
situation in the Pacific. Most of the
American warcraft in the Pacific already
are in Mexican waters.
Army Sot in It
While the navy was active, there
was no army movement. Two explanations
for this were advanced? j
the desire of northern Mexico, should i
not misinterpret the action, and the j
fact that the United States already i
has a big fighting force within striking
distance cf Mexico. Twelve thou-:
sand troops are at Texas City, where
four army transport are at anchor, i
and thousands of cavalry and infan- j
try are spread along the border where
they can be moved quickly. !
High administration officials do not,
expect critical developments, but they I
are prepared for any emergency.!
Secretary Bryan, who is ill, had intended
:o leave .onight for Miami,
Fla. He canceled his reservation and
announced that he would stay in
Washing; on indefinitely. Senator
Sliiverlv, acting chairman of the sen-'
ate foreign relations committee, con-1
ferred with Mr. Bryan and called at;
the White House as well. He said
that at the regular meeting of the'
committee tomorrow lie would transmit
all the inf >rma ion he had ob-1
The sta us of the case as summed ;
uj; by cabinet officers and other officials
was described as fo.lows:
"Assistant Paymaster Charles C.
Copp and a boat load of marines land-:
ed at iTampico last Thursday ;o ob-1
tain supplies. They were arrested,;
uui later aiscnargea. 111 accordance,
with regulations in all navies of the ;
world, Rear Admiral Mayo, on can-1
sidering that an unwarranted arrest
had been made, and that the uni-:
form of the American navy had been j
disregarded, demanded reparation in
the of a salute of 21 guns. The
American flag, while not taken ashore,
was flying at "he stern of the whale-j
boat and all the marines were in uni-!
Gave More Time.
"Rear Admiral Mayo allowed the
Huer.a commander until 6 o'clock j
that evening to fire a salute but later j
extended the time to afford the local j
commander an opportunity to com-1
municate wi-;h his superior officers
in Mexico City. A statement of apology
was issued in Mexico City by Gen.j
Huerta and the officer who arrested l
the marines was ordered punished.!
This did not satisfy the United Sta:es
government and a salute was insisted ,
on. Gen. Hiierta himself at no time
agreed :o comply, but an undersec-!
retary in the Mexican foreign office!
did inquire of Charge O'Saaughnessy
if a salu:e fired to the gunboat Doi- i
phin and responded to by the Ameri-!
can ship would be acceptable. This j
was emphatically rejected by the.
United States, and word was sen* that!
nothing short of a public salute ;o
the American flag would be satisfac- |
This was the situation laid before,
the cabinet roday by the president.,
Some administration officials were in- j
dined to wait f Jr mere facts and do (
nothing until an investigation had,
been completed. Others suggested thai
Huerta "ftould evade the issue and;
delay and that prompt and vigorous
action was necessary.
. John Lind, it is understood, in his
conference with the president and j
Secretary Bryan had counseled a j
forceful move. For two hours the cab- j
inet discussed the pros and cons and;
the possible consequences of drastic
action, and the plan of sending the

that the naval demonstra- ^

as other moves had been discusssed j
on many an occasion in the past.
>o Change in Policy. j.
Cabinet officers and others were in- j jj
sisteut that no change in tie general j jl
policy towards . Mexico was immi-1 S
nent and that so far as possible the j ?
factions would be left to fight their j f
battles unhampered by American in-, P
terference. Officials declared with; *
emphasis that no other phases of the! ^
Mexican situation beyond the affront! ()
to the flag at Tampico were involved J L
in the dispatch of Lhe flee:, though j /
officials admitted the strategic value !|

the situation. j _
''Action, net words," was tlie way i
cabinet officers described the answer I

willingness ;o fire a salute when de-1
manded by the American government.;
Incidentally a copy of the naval or-j

Charge O'Shaughnessy so that the;
Huerta governmen: might be inform-!
ed of thfc course which the United j
States had adopted. It was said that
there was no necessity of informing;
other foreign governments unless a
Sta'e or' blockade was declared.
Pleasing to Congress.
News of :he dispatch of the fleet to j
Mexican waters was received in con-1
gress with general satisfaction. In the
house, Representative Murdock of
Kansas publicly proclaimed the news
of Secretary Daniel's order and there.

the senate, but the news quickly:
Tomorrow the situation will oc- 1
