It Oeneral Huerta Is anxious re garding what may develop, he doee not betray It. Although he has sent to the diplomatic representatives ot ths foreign nations a note, which In ef feet is a defiance of Washington. In his formal ststement to the diplo mats General Huerta sold It was now foreseen that the recent elections were void, as teo few precincts had participated In the voting and that therefore the new congress would an nul the elections. New elections would then be called and he would continue his programme of pacifica tion. President Huerta's backbone has been stiffened by the receipt of suf ficient funds to operate the govern ment until the end of the present month and the Implied promise of further flnsncial aid If the new con gress should net favorably on certain old land concessions.
