Washington, May 2. That Presi
dent WUhoii intends to be ready if per
manent peace with Mexico should not
result from the present mediation ne
gotiations was indicated by the re
quest that (he appropriations in the
army bill, totaling upward of
$100,1100,000 be made available imme
diately. The bill, now In the hands of
the president, carries appropriations
available after June 1.
A Joint resolution has been intro
duced by KepreBentatlve Hay, chair
man of the house military affairs com
mittee, making the money available
immediately. This resolution has the
approval of President Wilson.
This action is In line with nil of the
precautions that are being taken by
this government. Nothing is to be left
undone to have the armed forces In a
state of complete preparedness if the
mediators finally report they cannot
bring about an agreement.
Huerta Would Salute Now.
It is admitted that if the only ques
tions in dispute were those between
the United Slates and Huerta at the
time the bis battleship fleet was or
dered south a sp edy settlement could
be reached. Huerta has made it plain
In unofficial i.egotlations with repre
sentatives of the envoys that he Is
willing to salute the flag uncondition
ally if the United States forces are
withdrawn from Vera Cruz. He has
been told, however, that things have
gone too far and Secretary Bryan says
be deserves no credit for granting an
armistice, aH he is about at the end of
his resources and the continued rebel
successes would soon relieve him of
all responsibility anyway.
With the declaration of this truce
between Huerta and the United States
government, Interest centered In
whether Carranza, the rebel chief,
would resolve himself into the key
stone of a diplomatic arch designed
to bridge the whole problem of the
pacification of Mexico and its interna
Hope to Settle Whole Problem.
The envoys have not abandoned the
Idea of settling the entire Mexican
problem. Huerta's attitude on the
question of an armistice between his
and the northern rebels
fti.o was a factor to be considered
However, it was generally believed
that upon the stand Carranza took on
the truce proposition would hinge the
auestion of whether the envoys would
be able to go Into the broad field of
"all narties with Interest in the pron
tern of the pacification of Mexico and
the adjustment of the differences be
tween Mexico and the United fatates.
Refugees Getting Out Rapidly.
ReDorts that Americans rapidly
were making their way out of danger
tones were pleasing to officials here
who were employing all resources to
clear all menaced country of United
The routine of taking over the
Huerta government's official business
in Washington was completed at the
Spanish embassy. All under secre
taries and clerks who remained here
after the departure of Mexican Charge
Algara for Toronto have removed to
