OF GREAT BRITAIN
Ambassador Page Makes For
mal Inquiry as to Action Held
Slap at United States.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 21. While
there was no change in either the
itucTiTaljrarftt'Mekfe City or the
American policy,' an international
phase of the. Mexican altuation that
attracted wide attention last night was
the formal inquiry made yesterday by
Ambassador Page at London as to
what was construed here as an unsym
pathetic attitude toward the United
States taken by Sir Lionel Carden,
the British minister to Mexico.
It is understood that the basis of
the inquiry was a confidential report
to the state department, the contents
of which were not divulged here. It
is known, however, that what particu
larly displeased both President Wil
son and Secretary Bryan was the pre
sentation by Sir Lionel of his creden
tials to Provisional President Huerta
the very day after the latter had pro
claimed himself dictator.
The American government felt that
Huerta's nuUificr'.ion of. the Mexican
constitution, not only by h's arrest of
the deputies, but by his assumption of
legislative powers, had so altered af
fairs in the Mexican capital that the
British minister might well have with
held his presentation of credentials.
Inquiry was directed to determine
whether the British foreign office had
instructed Sir Lionel to present his
credentials, notwithstanding Huerta's
assumption of power.
The explanation of the British f?r
eign office quoted in press dispatches
that the presentation of the creden
tials was merely a coincidence and
not antagonistic to the American point
was not commented upon by officials
Diplomatic circles interpreted the
new development as strongly intimat
ing to Europe the desires of the Unit
ed States to have a free hand in deal
ing with the Mexican problem.

Mexico City, Oct. 21. The holding

General Villa permitted the Ameri
cans to depart from Torreon, but held
the Germans, about the same number

OLD PARTIES WORRIED
Expected Tammany Will Pub
lish Impeachment Evidence
Not Offered at Trial.
Albany. N. Y., Oct. 21. What would
be the outcome of Sulzer's race for the
legislature was the question foremost
in the minds of politicians around the
capitol today. It was generaliy agreed
he would make a great deal of trouble
for the organization ln New York.
The worst political foes practically
conceded him victory in his own as
sembly district. They are inclined to
regard the withdrawal of the republi
can candidate as a trick intended to
damage the democratic party a great
deal at the cost of a small concession.
There is no doubt the republicans
would work hard for Sulzer U the
hope he would repay them amply by,
bis attacks on Tammany in case he
reached the assembly. The question
of greatest speculation, however, was
how many votes Sulzer would be able
to swing for his speakership candidacy
ln case of his action.
DEADLOCK IS SKECV.
The consensus of poinioa was the
next assembly would probably be di
vided among three parties and if tha
prediction proves true, and Sulzer
was able to muster the undivided
support of one faction and a few In
surgents in other quarters he would
prove a big factor in the race.
The majority of the assemly is re-
, elect the speaker and only.-
lUe for one party can prevent
a deadlock if Sulzer wins. Sulzer hat
not admitted that he has deserted tha
democratic party by accepting tha
progressive nomination and a republi
