SEEKING- TO EM) WAE. i Negotiations with Central America —Mexico Will Xot Intervene. Washington. March -i» — Telegmphlo corre spondence has been going: on between the Wash ington officials and the diplomatic representa tives In Central America and Mexico for the last forty-eisht hours relative to the Central Ameri can troubles. Because decisive results have not yet been reached, and Information necessary to a clear understanding of the situation remains to be supplied, no statement revealing the de tails of tho negotiations could ba obtained for publication. Captain Fullam, commander of the gunboat Marietta, reported by cabie from Puerto Cortes that everything was quiet on the north coast of Honduras, and that he was send ing a long report by mail. The report that Costa Rica had recognized the provisional government of Honduras lacked oiii cial confirmation up to the close of the day and was acccepted with reserve. At least Blxty days will be required for the election of a Pres ident by the provisional government of Hon duras and the establishment of the new admin istration on such a basis that it can command general recognition. This delay will necessarily wake tao condi tlons in Central America even more uncertain, according to Latin-American diplomatists, who have advices that President Bonllla has not thought of giving up the light, but is busily ro organizing his army. Mexico City, March 28.— "Mexico will be no condition Join the United States In joint Inter ventlon between Nicaragua and Honduras," wa.s the statement mado by tho Mlntetw of Foreign Affairs, Refior ftfartscaJ. last night. He added: This government Is ready at any time to Join the United states in offering Its good offices In friendly mediation, tut will go no further. Should President !;■>■ . Intervene, h<; will be xr.iiyed to act Independently, as iar as President Diaz is concerned. It was added at the Foreign Office that it was the intention of tho Mexican Government to offer friendly offices of the republic, and that this step was prompted by purely altruistic motives. Mexico ha* no Interest la either Honduras or Nicaragua. She has no navy with which to patrol the Central American coasts, and feels utidi.r no obligations to incur the enormous ex peose "f equipping an army of Ini Salvador's position is considered by dip! here to be still critical, an no ni»a!is certain that President Zelaya would heed a suggestion from the northern powers to lay down arms. ATTEMPT TO BURN TRUJILLO Damage Prevented by Nicaraguans — Camp Around American Consulate. New Orleans, March 29. — The fruit meamer BuldaJ, which arrived to-day fro;:i Clack Kiver, Honduras, reported that immediately afior tho capture of Trujlllo by tho Nicaraguans, an at tempt was made to bum tile town, supposedly by Hondurans. The lire was subdued by tne Nlcarusruaris before any pr«at damage had been don>-. There wus no looting by tiie Nlearajjuon troops, according to the crew of tho Suidal. who reported that hundreds of pernona of many na tionalities had camped around tho American Consulate, with cows, goats and dogs, believing that the American flag above all others assured them protection. NEXT PRESIDENT OF HONDURAS. Rebels Said To Be Demanding Selection of Policarpo Bonilla. i Of TtleKraph to Tli» T; il.une. ) Mobile, Ala., March 29.— The Norwegian steamer Harald. from Celba, Spanish Honduras, arrived hero this afternoon. Captain Hen rlchsen reported that Ceiba had not been capt ured by the? Nicaraguan forces. He said tho presence of the American war vessel was a great relief to the natives of the place. There was BO news to the effect that Tiuxillo had been recaptured by the Honduran army. A foroe of five marines from the Marietta were on board the Haruld during her trip from Celba up the Stevens Kiver. Dr. Policarpo Bonllla, a former President of Honduras, la expected to be reinstalled as Chief Executive In Tegucigalpa as a result of the fall of that capital, notwithstanding the fact that Bonllla is in prison in Han Salvador, having been cuptun d there In February while trying to escape to tho forces of the revolutionary Hon duran leuders. According t<> report*, there will be a strenuous effort mad- to obtain his re lease by the triumphant rebels, on the ground that the fall of President Manuel Bonilla was occasioned not so much by Zelaya as by the 7,<N((» or s.iKJt* revolutionists of Honduras. It is said that the victorious Zelaya has formed a compact with the revolutionary leaders of Honduras whereby the iau<r ha\. agreed •<> cede to Nicaragua all tha disputed territory as soon as Policarpo Bonilla. is made President. This, it is said, wili be much more than ample compensa tion for all the expense of the war. since tho district Is on« of the richest mineral isnnss of Central America and has recently become a great p<<!d producing region.

Tho War Department hold, however, that tho army engineer may not nc.-cpt th« place, since it k an office, and la distinct from tlio duty <>f a member of th» military service. Thero Is a long stri of precedents which snow thai an army officei inay not hold public office outside that of Congressman and retain his commission In the army.

NAVY MINI: SHIP. — Tho decision to have a mine laying vessel wai reached fter a eensWera* tion of tho reports receive I from various sources ,f Information in the Far Bast Otlloiul seservsrs ttifi» have commented ut some length upon and in favor of a mine laying vessel as on uuxlllary of the system of cnriHt d*«fenco, hh weQ ua tho employ ment of such a ship at othor p.»'' a and under othor conditions which call for that special form cf Fiibmertfi'd truotlon of an enomy. The San Francisco, which has evidently cosapletod its cureer as a cruising vessel and which Is now out <'f oonunlssion at the nuv»' yard ut Norfolk, Va., will l.e tverted into a ship for tho placing of mines. There ar« various plani on file In tho Navy De partment f"r this tnrt of equipment The vessel will have to bo llttod out for the storage of tho mines and the apparatus for handling them, a.s well SS a special euuli'tnent for placing the mines. Work in connection with such a. vessel is tnoro or less perilous and compare* with tho duty devolving upon those connected with surfaco and submarine torp< boats Sueh a bon-. would naturally bo .i target and would* have to be armed so aa to repel torpedo boat attack. For this reason a stn.il! bat tery of 6-inch nvins will bo placed on the Sun Francisco. Tho j?ovonin;ent has never had a mine hiylnK vessel, and In ttm* of war would havo to n-snrt to lii!:>i"v!seil moans in order ti> lay mines outsldo, of course, the svstem which is possessed by the coast urtlllery at various plaoes. Most other navtea possess at least ono of this typo of vessel, i,nd in view of the creditable showinff mado by Tninrn In thf* war between Russia and Japan, It la considf-n-d that there should be provision niuda for bil' a ship. CANNED QOODB EXPENSIVE.— Army com missaries are conducting Borne ex|>eriin«'nts with tinned vegetables, which had already been tho sui> ject of test In the Philippines and tn Alaska. It Is believed that potatoes nnd onions can be put In cans and kept for long periods and issued to trOOPS under conditions whero they would not ordinarily be üblft to obtain Ou-ku articles. The tests which liavu been conducted show that It can be done with Home success, but the process of pres»rvatlon is too expensive for packers to undertake the work. As soon ns it can bo found commercially profitable there Is no doubt that tho vegetables will bo placed en the market In cans. Tho Kreitt cost of such articles, however, makes It out of tho question to purchase them for tho army. The packers will co-operate with tho army subeistence ottlfiTs In an effort to tlnd a suitable and econom ical method of preservation. CHANCB FOR INVENTORS.— Commanding ©ra cers of battleships have been called upon to send to the Navy Department reports r<-sardinjr tho automatic shutters. This U a devlco which Is used to close tho opening In the floor of the turrets so as to separate tho compartim-nt beloxv, where the ammunition Is handled. It was found that with an unprotected opening thero was a possibility of fire KvttlnK Into Ehe magazines, and aev-ordtngly a shutter which was s.-lf-m-tinvr and which would not havo to be closed by tho men would bw a sutls factory device. Some complaint has been made. however, that theae shutters were fiist«*n»<i back in order that there mlisht b« better records mado with the gun firing. This Is now prohibited, and tho shutters must not b© Interfered with in any way. Some complaint has been made of minor defects In the mechanism of the various types of shutters which ara used, and It Is considered ud vlsabit' to have .i report of the various systems In order to make such changes as are deemed neces sary in the way of 'Improvement and to the end that there may be greater security of life and the better protection of tho ahip Itself.
