the slate's .request for an injunction
tn the ground that the state had

Although Judges Hunter ofOttumwa

President Sounds Note oi
Warning in the Mexi
John Lind Arrives at Huerta's
Capital, but Presence Causes
Little Stir. v '
Washington, D. C, Aug. 11. Presi
dent Wilson let it be known today
that he Is inclined to believe there
is an organized desire proceeding from
sources unknown to him to bring on ,
a war between the United States
and Mexico. The president does not
regard the movement extensive, but as
very troublesome. He referred to
misrepresentations by some individual
newspapers. He indicated he shared
somewhat the views of Senator Wil
liams, who declared in a speech Sat
urday that an organised lobby existed
to involve the United States in war.,
There is no occasion for alarm, in the
opinion of the president, who told call
ers today that within the last 48 hours
the Mexican situation had improved
materially. It was made clear by the
president that instruction to Lind wera
chiefly to inform the American gov
ernment how things stood generally
in Mexico, and just what were the
opportunities for the good offices of
the United States In tho Interest of
peace. Sooner or later, it was pointed
out, Lind will make certain sugges
tions to the Huerta government
through the American embassy, but
in what circumstances has not yet
been fully determined upon. Anything
in suggestions that may properly be
made will be revealed here, and for
eign governments will be constantly
be appiwd of the various 8tpstffEoa
by the United States. This may not ,
take place, hbwever, for several days,
WAXTS SIOHE INFORMATION.
The president has had no direct
communication either with the Huerta
government or the constitutionalist
authority, and he indicated to callers
today he would welcome more infor
mation about the purpose of the consti
tutionalists. Jt was learned also that'
the president has not yet formally con
sidered recognition of the constitution
alists, but insofar as territory, alone, he
regarded that held by the constitu
tionalists as strong enough In propor
tion to that controlled by tho Heurta
government to make recognition of
the constitutionalists not wholly un
justifiable from a diplomatic stand
point. Bryan had a long conference with
the president on the Mexican situation.
They had before them the first dis
patches from Lind. No information '
of their contents was disclosed.
I.I.D AT DESTINATION.
Mexico City, Aug. 11. Tho arrival
of John Lind, whose mysterious mis
sion to Mexico was tho direct cause of
public manifestation yesterday in sup
port of General Huerta's attitude to
ward American mediation, has of it
self been devoid of any thrills. When
Lind alighted frcm hi train lastrfilght
there were only a few persons at the
station who were curious to watch
hl3 movements. Numerous newspaper
photographers subjected him to the
ordeal of flashlights, for which ho
obligingly posed. Police in large num
bers guarded the approach at the sta
tion, but as the party was driven
off to a hotel the public generally
assumed an apathetic attitude.
Lind installed himself today in tem
porary offices at the United States
embassy, and passed several hours in
conference with Charge O'Shaueh
Federico Gamboa, new Mexican sec
retary of foreign relations, speaking
of Lind's mission, said: "I have ,a
conviction that the difficulties between
Mexico and the United States will
soon be settled."
