(ll I .cased trn to YtmUig Herald.)
Washington. Feb 3. President Wilson him decided In lift the em
bargo cm exportation of i.itns lo Mexico.
A lro' hiitin i ion under ihe authority (if I he congressional resolution of
1912, which, will restore ihi slums of the arm question lo where both
11 atria for i n uinl constitutionalists tuny Import arms from the Fulled
Slates, inn will lip Issued frin the While House.
N of Ihe action about lo be taken by President Wllaon became
known today through source whhh have been cnniun(ly advised of the
administrations policy In Mexico. It also hecam,. known that the subject
IkiiI been dimiiiMil at Ihr cabinet meeting today.
There were Intimation ihul an official nnnouncemem of the adminis
tration purpoar weuld be coming from the While House Inter.
Il la believed President Wllaon finally uecldcd to raise the embargo
after being convinced that by restricting ahlnnenia of rm to Mexico the
I'nlied Htatca wan not really showing neutrality, which wua Ihe purpose
of the embargo, but wua In fact showing partiality aa the Huerta fori e
were cnuhleal. to get large aullea from abroad while the constitutional
taia, I mlleil almoet entirely In shipment from I ha I'nlied' Stale, could
get arma -ami ammunition practically only by smuggling. -.
. It hum bean frequently reported lo the administration during th prog
reaa of Ihe Mexico nrgol.ulloiia, that If Ihe I'nlied .-nates would permit
frt'e shipment of arma to tlenrral Carranx. the constitutionalists would
undertake to restore pence In Mexico and at up a constitutional govern
ment within a ahori lime.
II was understood tn olflclnl circles that announcement of the presl
ilem'a Uetrriulnallon to lift Ihe embargo had gone forward to Charge
iMhuughiie ivy in Mexico City, probably with iiialrut'tlona to ndvlae Ihe
t'onailtutlonHliat ageni In Washington learned of the development
tinnfthbilly and declared Ihul the end of the war waa in aight.
ifcuutnr of the fnrelgn reluliona commltlea have been urging Presl
dent Wllaon lo permit free importnllon of arma lo Ihe battletclda In the
hope that lha war might aoon be ended. Thoae close to Ihe president (aid
that ha would tuke auch uction na only one of the last resorts in hla Mex
ican policy, preferring to depend for a lime on Ihe "moral preaaure" and
the "financial blockade," which hua ao far atopped Ihe Huerta government
from obtaining credit abroad, haa only recently cauaed It to default In Ihe
Interest eif the Mexican public debt anj hua in n the nrmira of the conatl
lutlonallata aleudlly mardiing on from victory lo vlciiry.
The only word that rame from thv While Houae waa that an Import
ant communication would be made at 5 p. m. today. While limine ofll
liula declined lo divulge lia nuiure.
There la every re noon In believe that under the authority of the Joint
reaolution of March It. 1912. I'reaidenl Wllaon will continue to exerolae
clla" relluniiry power In lauinu permli for the exportation of iirmi, so that
they may not fall into Ihe lunula of Irreaponaible peraona.
Ho fur aa poaakbln only Ihe military hlefa on both aide of the Mex
icun revolt will obtuin the muuillona of w-ur, thouith exactly how that
will be done hua not yet been worked nut. .
The preaident'a decmum waa reached after many month of careful
aludy of Ihe arma problem, and while In the tlrat Instance Ihe belief of
the administration waa that Ihe d' nlal of nrma wua humane ad. Ihe
conviction haa grown on the Wuahlniiton government Ihul Ita policy hua
not operated eiuuliy toward Ihe warring laellona.
1'nrtiahiy inaiead of neutrality wua Ihe reuli of ihe policy. In t'.e
opinion of Ihe preaolenl and membeta of hia cabinet, who finally deter
mined that Ihe real neutral courae Would be to put both fucttotia on an
even fooling. The admlnlairalion ' bellevca lliat lo permit the aitua
tlon lo drift ii lung would be contributing lo un Inceaaant airuggle. It haa
been urged by many adiiiiniatratlon upportera that the removal of the
embargo would In reality ahmicn lh conical und bring It lo u quick con
fifflcliila here with intimate knowledge of Mexican campulgna ay the
conalllullotialiat forcea have been grcntly handicapped becauae of Ihe au
permr artillery of Ihe Huerta army. From ICuropeun countrle the Huert
government la anld to have been Importing Mi-mllllmcter cannon for the
defunaa of Ihe large cliiea, through oien porta on the Atlantic and I'aclfSe
nil tinder their control. The rnnatltutlonullHla have been almoal enlllely
wiihoul heavy artillery. They even have leen put to Ihe airuita nf manu
facturing guiia out of oi her inuchlnciy. Thia auperlnr artillery haa en

the Waahlnglon government wua not taUIng the embargo to aid Ihe Coii
Bl.iullonnllata nor aa evidence or aympaihy with their cauae. but merely
to rornTl an Inequality in the warfare which haa been brought about by
Ihe eperalton of Ihe proclamation of !IZ.
Meniitor norah of Idaho, who urged
that tha embargo b lifted aa far back
a last August, said today that many
I'ther member of ihe foreign relation

conclusion since thst time.
