Administration Officials Feel That Set.
tlement is Nearer-Meeting Will
Not Change Outlined Procedure.
Washington.-News from Mexico
City that John Lind, personal repre
sentative of President Wilson, and
Frederico Gamboa. Mexican minister
of foreign relations, had established
unofficial relations Tuesday by a per
sonal meeting, brought encouragement
to administration officials. It was felt
by them that the first step in the pro
gram of the American government to
throw its influence in the direction of
a quiet and peaceful settlement of the
revolutionary troubles had succeeded.
The incident, however, it was learn
ed from official sources, will not
change the procedure previous out
lined to Mr. Lind before he left Wash
ington. He will submit all his repre
sentations to Charge O'Shaughnessy,
who will transmit them in accordance
with diplomatic proprieties to the (Cof
Mexican minister of foreign relations.
t The meeting of Mr. Lind and Minis
ter Gamboa, however, was looked upon
t by officials at Washington as the be- -

relations, through which the Mexican DROUT

BALKAN PEACE PACT
SERVIA. GREECE, ROUMANIA, MON&
TEh.EGRO AND BULOARIA
AGREE TO TERMS.
Bulgaria Was Utterly Helpless to Cotn
tinue War, and Agreement Reached
After Much Wrangling.
Bucharest. Roumanla.-The peace
treaty between the Balkan states was
signed at 10.30 o'clock Sunday morn
ing. In honor of the occasion the city
was decorated with flags, guns were
fired, bells were rung and the bands
played.
ltucharest.-Peace was concluded
Wednesday among the Balkan states.
and the preliminary treaty will be
signed by Servia. Greece. Montenegro,
Roumania and Bulgaria immediately.
The agreement was arrived at only
after an exhibition of tlh utter help
h lessness of Builgaria to face' her ring of
enemies. The dlisclusitons in thie peace
conferenclle thratetined to hetome in
I termninable, but NI. .Ma joresco, the Bou
mnanian premier and priesident of the
o conference, cilinched matI:ters by threat
' cening that unliess Iull garia accepted
h the iidifiied fionti,.r proiposed by the
allies liouniti'a ' army would occupy
Sofia next Saturday. This' threat had
the desired effect. a r
The new frontier as agreed to starts
at a point on the old frontier west of
'y the Struma riper, follows the water
' shed to west of the town of Strum
- tiltza, tihence runs almost through the
Struma Valley to the Belesh Moun
re tains, and thence easterly in almost
1a straight line to the Mesta rlyer, thus
leaving the town of Strumnitda, the
t' port of Lagos and Kanthi to Bul
- garia, and the port of Kavala to
re Greece. The new frontier is a deep
P. disappointment to the Bulgarians, who
't still nurse hopes for its eventual re
uP vision by the powers.
h It is believed that an agreement for
ut the demobilization of the various
he armies will be signed at once. The
ly news that peace had been arranged
ral caused great rejoicing.
sip The war between the former Balkan
D' allies, who had fought shoulder to
me shoulder against Turkey, began on
ort July 1 with war declarations by Ser
ay, via and Greece. Roumania declared
et war on July 10 and moved her troops
over the Bulgarian frontier.
tad The trouble arose over the dividing
ties of territory captured from Turkey. Se
av- vere fighting followed, and many
thousand men were killed or wound
rn- ed. Numerous massacres and acts of
of pillage were reported to have been
s'* committed by the various armies.
uld The Montenegrin troops never came
the into action during the hostilities, al
the though they also were nominally at
war with Bulgaria.
