of his chief supporters bare come into

"V enustiano Carransa, former governor

aspatches received, has not succeeded
an obtaining general support for bis at
titude against Huerta.
-V committee from Mexico City has
arrived In Monterey and will go by spe
cial train to a point half "way between
Laredo and Monterey to confer with a
committee named by the rebel authori
ties at present in charge of Nuevo La
redo. The port of Nuevo Laredo re
mains closed to customs traffic.
To Offer Amnesty.
Provisional president Huerta today
drafted a bill granting amnesty to all
political offenders "who shall present
themselves to the authorities within IS
days." The measure was hurriud to the
chamber of deputies, which Is in extra
ordinary session, for quick action.
The emissaries of Emilio Zapata, who
were said to be hiding in the state ef
Morelos. are here to confer with. Huerta.
They are said to bear instructions from
their leader to arrange terms f surrender.
Seventeen Zapatis.as who advanced
to the edge of the federal district, eight
miles from tnranital were mntarod

today and executed. Juan Vargas, com

the recommendation of its finance com

u.uuu pesos asKea ior by Madera, will
be authorised by a bond issue. It was
sa.d today that the committee would
recommend any sum that the finance
minister deemed necessary for the needs
of the government.
Huerta Is Pleased.
Keen satisfaction is displayed at the
palace over the late reports which indi
ca the disappearance of the revolu
tionary activities in much of the north
and portions of the south.
It is not expected that the Zapatista
problem will be solved immediately, but
several minor chiefs have announced
their willingness to serve the new gov
ernment. Government officials realized the
probability of a difficult campaign in
the south, but president Huerta; who
commanded the federals in the cam
paign which most nearly resulted in the
ending of the Zapatista trouble And
was checked only by Madero's benevo
lent interference, thinks be knows the
situation sufficiently well to end the
PuxsalBg the Zapatistas.

Carransa Makes Little Headway.
According to government advices,
Venustiano Carransa. former governor
of Coahuila, is making little headway
In the new revolution inaugurated by
turn, with Saltillo as a base.
To the report that Emilio Madero was
lulled is added a rumor that Ms broth
er. RaouL has met the same fate at
Ton-eon. Both were actively allied
with Carransa and. if true, their taking
off doubtless will have a deterrent ef

Recognition of Huerta Must
Be Granted or De
"Wasington. D. C Feb. 27. The ap
pointment by president Huerta of a
new ambassador to the United States,
in th person of Emilio Rabaso, Is ex
pected to have the effect of bringing
to a speedy issue the question of recog
nition by the United States of the pro
visional government of Mexico. Up to
the present time, the relations between
the two governments have been on a
de facto basis.
Now that the threatened revolt of
governor Carranza, of Coahuila, actu
ally has taken form, the military au
thorities here have concluded that it Is
yet too early to carry out their plans
for any considerable reduction of the
American military force on the Mexican
border. Secretary SUmson has assured
the senate committee on foreign affairs
that every precaution has been taken
to prevent the entry into Texas of
raiding parties of Mexicans.
Political Recognition Deferred.
Political recognition of the provis
ional president of Mexico is not a mat
ter requiring the immediate action of
the secretary of state and this matter
will be left to the next administration.
State department officials maintain
that no interest of the United States
will suffer by wltholding full recog
nition and that all necessary busi
rcss can be transacted under the pres
ent working arrangement established
by ambassador Wilson.
If president Huerta Is able to con
duct his government In regular con
stitutional form, retain undisputed pos
session of the capital and extend full
protection to foreign life and property
in Mexico, formal recognition can then
be granted by president Wilson.
The United States government will
be Influenced strongly by the extent
to which the Huerta. regime provides
for a full and fair election of perma
nent constitutional officers.
More Troops For Border.
At a meeting of the senate committee
or. fore's 1 it Ions at which senators
Culberson .1 Shepperd, of Texas,
were pre,.it, secretary of war SUm
son and Maj. Gen. Wood gave as
surance that such a disposition rf
troops would be made along the Texts
bonltr as woild Insure protection of
that section against Invasion by
maudlin raiders from Mexico. They
said several regiments would be
placed along the Texas border.
They explained that the removal of
detachments from El Paso had been
made necessary by the crisis in the
City of Mexico because of which it
became necesary to collect as large a
force as possible at the nearest point
of embarkation at the earliest possible
movement in view of the fact that in
tervention might be necessary. For
this reason, the nearest garrisons were
ail rushed to Galveston.
With this critical time passed, they
raid, troops from points further off
could be brought to the border anc
that there scon would be no cause for
complaint along the Texas border.

with this statement:

tention of ever considering any sort
of a compromise."

in the federal prison at Chihuahua at
midnight Wednesday, according to a
telegram which was received in Juarez
Thursday morning. The same message
said that Aleberto Madero and E. C
