That and Other Mexican Developments

Washing, on, May 7.?^Developments
in the .Mexican situation went steadily
forward today although the White
House wedding today somewhat
eclipsed other events in official Washington
The chief reports from Mexico announced
the killing o? two British
subjects a.id one American at Guadalajara
and continued heavy fighting
at Mazatlan on the Pacific coas:
where the rebel aeroplane dropped a
fcomb which killed four persons and
injured eight in the streets of the besieged
The State department also was informed
by Consul Hamin at Durango ;

Information from the Argentine,1
Brazilian and Chile negotiators was i
that they were preparing to begin!
"work in Niagara Falls, Ont. They declared
that despite Gen. Carranza's
self-elimination the constitutionalist
side of the Mexican problem would
be fully considered by the mediators
at the coming conference.
President Wilson and Secretary'
Bryan have determined to appoint as J
delegates to the mediation conference 1
men of judicial ability and, if possible,
those familiar with the proceedings;
of arbitral tribunals. j

A man clcs? to the president said
today i: would not be surprising if a |
justice of the supreme court of the
United States should be one oi the
representatives of the American gov- j
ernment. Justice Pitney, though a
republican, is a close friend of the
president and may be chosen. Justice
Pitney was a member of the Paris
peace conference. George Gray of,
Delaware, also personally intimate
with the president and an American;
delegate to The Hague, is another ]
who is considered likely to be chosen.
Counsellor Robert Lansing of the
State department, busy with his duties
at the department, may no; be in position
to act, but if arrangements can
be made to take care of his work, he
may be selected. Henry D. White,
former ambassador :o France, also
is spoken of as a possibility'.
Xelson O'Shaughnessy, former
' charge d'affairs at Mexico City, ar'
rived in "Washington today. He saw j
Secretary Bryan onlv for a few minutes
and deferred his calls on the
president and Secertary Daniels until
A report from :he Brazilian am-:
bassador at Mexico City stated that I
a train load of refugees, 500 to 600
in number left for Vera Cruz in two
sections yesrerday. Gen. Huerta promised
soldiers to accompany the trains.!
Among those on the train was Dr.1
Edward Ryan, the American emissary,
who had been arrested on a
charge of being a spy and released on |
strong representations by :he Brazilian
Search for Sillman.
The quest for John Sillman, deputy
consul at Satillo, whose disappear-ance
at San Luis Potosi has causec j
much anxiety, resulted in a visit ic'
G^n. Huerta bv the German and |
French ministers. He assured their |
that he had sent soldiers ?.o the assistance
of the assistant consul.
Saitiiio is cut on irom me capuai
and perhaps now is in the hands of
the constitutionalists, and the or- j
tiers, the diplomat say, might not
reach their destination.
Chairman Chamberlain of the comI
mittee on military affairs introduced
a resolution authorizing the presiden* j
to raise the army above the present
statutory limit of 100,000 in time:
when war is imminent or on occasions
of grave emergency requiring
the use or tlie regular army. i ne \
resolution states that conditions exist j
at present which may at any time require
the full strength of the army.
Senator Chamberlain declared the 1

interfered with by an unexpected notification
from the federal commander i
that no foreigners could land so long (
as warships remained at Tampico. j
Both federals and constitutionalists ,
earlier had invited the oil men to re- j
turn, under promises of protection.
A delegation of representatives of
American oil interests at Tampico,
who have just returned to the United >
States, called at the navy department ;
today and told Secretary Daniels tha: :
thi? United States should police Mexico
and aid in the resumption of oil
operations. Later they saw the pres- ,
ident. . Secetary Daniels told them
they ought to be thankful they had
escaped with their property.
representatives of oil interests told
Secetary Bryan that because of their
enforced absence from Mexico title
to their leases is being transferred to (
opponents. This is taken to mean I;
that British concessionaries are the. <
beneficiaries. The story was told that J
contriburors to a fund for Gen. j
Huerta being deposited in Paris, were
among those to whom title to American
holding is being transferred in
the Mexican capital.
