(By Associated Press)
Washington. May 13.-First formai
steps in tee program of mediation in
the Mexican problem were taken here
.today when Justic Lamar and Fred
erick W. Lehmann, together with their
secretary H. Percival Dodge, who will
represent the United States, paid their
respects to the three South American
envoys who havo undertaken by dip
lomacy to solve the Mexican question.
Reports were current that strong
pressure would be brought to bear on
the constitutionalists from several
quarters after the expected victory at
Tampico,, to get them to participate in
the mediation.
A Soldier Murdered.
Secretary Garrison cabled General
Funston at Vera Grus to demand of
General Ma aa. the Mexican command
er, a full explanation of the death of
Private Parks, ..who strayed into Mex
ican lines several days ago. Protest
against the reported execution of
Parks and the alleged burning:of hts
body baa been sent also through diplo
matic channels to President Huerta.
Secretary Garrison - h?lds . that as
* o ric F- was in uniform, he should havo
boen treated as a 'prisoner of war.
General Funston thinks Parks weut
insane.
Mr. Garrison also aaked General
Funston for another report on the de
tails of tbe arrest ot five South Ameri
cans accused of sniping at Vera Crus.
. These were the chief developments
lu* tba Mexican situation today:- The
med la tors worn ibtisy pre nari og flor
their departure and Counsellor 'Lan
sing spent much tfine wUhjtgeAn^t-;
re fcrred for findl ?ecisioif to the sec^
rotary .of. state and the president.
The practical certainty that the con
stitutionalist* would be in control of
Tampico made lt apparent today that
Ute United States.soon would be In
a position to bring about a return tb
normal conditions ia 'thet oil district,
NottPliationa with ?Ule constitutional
ists, to permit foreign employes to re
turn to the-wells < will be begun as
soon as the news Ot the occupation of
the district is received.
Here ts a Problem.
Another phase ot the. situation
which produced much discussion in
executive quarters on the question of
ammunition shipments destined for
Tampico, which the constitutionalists
iimc - UM runic.
Constitutionalists, here say that af
ter theibajtttea of Tampico and Saltillo
now being fought,' the rebels will have
little ammunition left with which to
continue their, fight; against Hueste.
With a; practical embargo on the im
portation of munitions of war Across
the American border in effect now
the rebels believe the' only chance
. of getting additional ammunition will
be from abroad.
On the other'hand, should the con
stitutionalists be allowed to import
ammunition through Tampico,, some
point out that Huerta probably would
protest that the holding'up of ship
men tr. of arniB for him, at Vera Crus,
was unjust.
The expected capture of Tampico,
t the port next in importance to Vera
Crus, will r??ss many iij?er*&i.i?g
questions, as the rebels have held no
seaports heretofore.
Tho federal gunboats may seek to
prevent arms and supplies from land
ing at Tampico, but such an interfer
ence with International commerce
might not be tolerated by the big
ships hete, belonging to oth* ouo
trles.

MAAS IS FIRED
BY DICTATOR
j b Huerta Trying To Strengthen
His forces In the Vicinity of
' Vera Cruz
(By Associated Press)
Washington, May 18.-News reached
Washington through official circles
tonight that General Oerels Pena, one
ot the highest ranking officers In the
Mexican federal army .had taken com
mand of the forces outside of Vera
Crux, superseding General Maas.
.Thia news 1 caused sepeulation
around the state, war and navy de
partments. 8ome officials Were In
clined to attach special significance
to the move, seeing -in it evidence of
Huerta's intention to strengthen his
position around the port and possibly
to assume an offensive attitude.
On the other hand, lt was suggested
that General Maas* conduct had dis
pleased the dictator and that his re
moval probably had nothing whatever
to* do with the international situation.
Those who took ? the less optimistic
view thought that, the fsll ot Tampico
today ml'js have made Huerta des?
ps rate and nave led him tu take nome
st?p to force the hand of the United
States without waiting the outcome of
the pending mediaron negotiations.

Says Only Twing of Conscience
Is When He Remembers He
Plotted Against Rosenthal
(By Associated Press)
I New Yprk. May 13.-"Bald Jack"
Ro8j. chief witness for the prosecution
st the second trial of Charles Becker?
charged with being the instigator of
the plot that resulted in the murder of
Herman. Rosenthal, came from ,the
stand at the conclusion today of 'five
hours of relentless cross examination,
bright-eyed and smiling.,
The baldheaded informer quietly and
unfaltarlnj;ly * answered overy ques
tion asked him by chief of Becker's
counsel Manton. Even when Manton
asked the witness If lt were true that
ho imi? made his ii' ?ug ny committing
petty larcenies and by selling opium
to the slaves of the habit of New
York's chinatown, the former gambler
remained unperturbed.
Rose's expression never changed
during all tho grilling. The tone of
his voice waa neither raised nor low
ered at any time.. He reiterated his
story bf underworld intrigue and mur.
der, with a cairn and matter of fact
air. He showed no fear, no emotion
and no remorse except on one neon,
sion. Then he said his conscience
rrlcked him when he thought over
how he bsd plotted to have Herman
Rosenthal murdered. '.V\l
Manton managed to get Rose to ad
mit that there were m' or discrepan
cies between the testimony he offered
at the firs; trial and that which he
8ve on direct examination yesterday,
.se sgt)d; bis testimony yesterday was
more cplnplete in places than, his ter
'?inony. At the'same '

Me ?or me not' to fftfeve
something bul now and then."
During the afternoon examination
Manton put questions to Rose, which
were designed to show that Rosenthal
figured prominently in a gamblers'
war and was bated.
Rose admitted that Sam Paul, a
gambler, abd Rosenthal, had a falling
out soon' after the latter's house wa?
raided.. Hose also said Rosenthal hir
ed -spanish Louie" to kill Sam raul.
"Louie" failed to do it. He told Ros
enthal, according to Rose, that Paut
had given him 650 and he wouldn't
shoot a man who. was so generous.
Then? Rose said, Rosenthal hired
"Bloody Mike," to kill 'Spanish Louie,'
he did.

broken with rosenthal after the latter
had spread tales that Rose was
