I of varied learnings?the statement
A was interpreted as meaning that the
United States would bring pressure
Wf' to bear first to unite tfae factions in

and, failing to bring all elements to

to those elements wihich did agree.
^Ultimate intervention was considered
possible, but only if a hopeless condition
of anarchy followed with no
remedy from within the republic.
The text of the president's statement
"For more than two years revolutionary
conditions have existed in

was to rid Mexico of men who

to Vasquez Tagle or some
of the other members of the cabinet

The effect of fcae president's statement
in Mexican quarters was varied, j
Gen. villas representative inere, Enrique
Llorente, promptly issued a
statement saying the invention government
had tried to put into effect
the very ideas set forth by tine president
and "was ready to co-operate "with
opposing factions. The Carranza
agency was silent, but it was predicted
that Gen. Carranza would endeavor to
demonstrate by a quick campaign on
Mexico City that he could dominate
all otfter factions in a military way
and thereby command the recognition
of foreign governments.
Representatives here of exiled Mexicans,
driven from tiheir country by the
constitutionalists, expressed their approval
of the president's plan, but
doubted whether Villa and Carranza
and Zapata elements could reach an
agreement. The possibility of another
revolutionary movement to take under
its standard the best elements in
the Villa and Carranza ranks was discussed.
