Guddaloupo,'under which the present
revolution has been operating, was
amended so as to prevent any military

Washington, July 11:?a survey of

and diplomats hore that Internal

Coupled with the announcement I
from Torr eon o fthe results of the I
conference there, the statement of I
Carranza from tsaUiiio that he in
tends-to carry out to the letter, the I
plan of Guadeloupe was regarded aal
significant. The plan provins for |
the installation of Carranza as presi

and election shall1 be held.
The belief prevails in some quar
rten that Carranza would ut ay in of-]

then call an election and resign inj

All prospect of holding peace, con
