Washington, Arri? 19-Throughout to day the Mexican crisis oe?
cupied the absorbing attention of the officials' dispelling the usual
calm of a beautiful mid-spring.. Sunday. President Wilson arrived st
White Sulphur Spring?, W Va.', early in the d; r a nights ride
from Washington, and there joined Mrs. Wilson.
Secretar}' Bryan remained up virtually all of?t^T??ght awaiting
deMHte word from Mexico City. He was at the State department
arter midnight^ and going' home continued teleDhoninr tn iimc>
in the ci om at the State department until 4 o'clock this morn
Short?y after midnight Mr. Bryan received two messages from
MCXJCO, both from-Mr- O'Shr.ughnessy. The first .was ?" merely
Sformal, stating that the message of President Wilson, giving Huerta
until si* o'clock tonight to yield, had been communicated to Portillo
IPPpJas, the minister for foreign affairs, and that a reply would fol
low. _ . .
The second despatch was in the nature of a reply, although officials
quickly oert?^lved that it W?S no-? clearly responsive and det?n?il^?
friands made by this government, but raised a new i&oje

Tumulty at the White House, and the latest -es were furthr

Later ii became known that the messages shov Huerta wa
not raising objection to the salute itself, hut as tft-the details\t?|&
'^"ile?fe.condition was that the United Stales agf>e i?w'rH:ng tltat
the salute be tired, instead of relying on the assurance^jj&tten by Ad
titirai Mayo for a return salute. This was coJWBfrued by oifkials as a
wily and adroit move on Huerta's part to obtain aK assurance direct
from the^American government that would be^pa!^?-of beir.g con-!

Olltciais here were not disposed to give any such assurance, nor
to .prolong the discussion as to dctsUs.. They. ?:?i?. ?ietcn?ii:eu;
after consulting with President Wilson, to hold to the one concrete
question of Huerta's yielding of t?te American demand as it had;
submittied. The* reply to Huerta made clear to him that a
or "no" to the American demand is all t!;?t ?-?maiaed for
hirn, and thai nothing that was to oe done would bear the coii>
ftfii^non .of a recognition of the Huerfa regime.
Congress to Get Busy.
In the meantime tentative plans were being made for the legis
lative procedure .which tomorrow may place the full naval and mili
tary establishment in the hands of the president for decisive measures
against the defacto, government in Mexico. The scope of the author
ity to b ?conferred on the president, and thje means to be placed in his
h?ndtr for exerting that authority, viii depend on the president's de
sires. When the president returns to Washington early tomorrow
morning these desires undoubtedly will be submitted to leaders of the
house and senate, before the two legislative bodies meet at noon.
Then the, president probably will go to the capitol to read a special
mssage to congress.
Unless the Huerta, government accepts the presidentSs term? to
night, Majority Leader Underwood will offer a joint resolution in
the house, when it meets at noon, providing for a joint sesssion of
congress within an hour.
.'?/?ni ses??uii wii hear what-the president has to advise on the
Mexican situation, and probably before the president returns to the
White House a resolution will have been offered in each house in sepr
session, The chairman bf the foreign affair? and foreign re
lations committees will offer the resolutions, which immediately will
ferred to the ?esnective committees. Hurried sessions cf the
committee will report the resolutions.
