Ask For Armistice.
Early in the day the-mediators
?made another decisive move, in
asking the United States and Gen
eral Huerta to agree to an armis
tice by which ali aggressive mili*
tary movements would be sus
pended pending the outcome ot
the negotiations. The mediators
confidently expect both sides to?
accept the armistice proposal. A
separate proposal for an armistice
as between Huerta and Carranza
will be made, and with its accep
tance all of the warring elements
throughout Mexico as well as the
American forces, would maintain
a military status quo.
i he American government in
its formal reply to the armistice
proposal will stipulate expressly
that any untoward act toward
Americans will be regarded as in
fraction of the armistice.
The South America envoys
were in session throughout the
day. Up to adjournment they
had progressed steadily on their
plans, and foresaw a definite state

their contemplated action. Dur
