WAIL, AS CAR KILLS
HER BOY, STIRS RIOT
Mother Rushes from Show
to Discover Tragedy
Carmen in Peril.
Alarmed by cries outside a moving
picture show at 180 Saokett street,
Brooklyn, last night, the audience
rushed out to find that a surface c.ir
had run over and killed a baby boy. In
the audience was Mrs Mary Cirlana. of
170 Sackc-tt street, Rrooklyn. She was
one of the first to reach the sidewalk,
and as she got there she saw her
daughter. Anna, four years old.
"Frank is under the car, mamma,"
sobbed the little girl.
With a shriek, Mrs. Clriana rushed
toward the car. Her cries were taken
up by a hundred others, and soon the
crowd was growing so fast in numbers
and threats sounded so loudly that Pa
trr.lman Duffy sent word to the Amity
street station for the reserves. From
his account of the situation It was
deemed best also to summon the re?
serve men from the BuMer street sta?
When the extra police arrived at the
scene of the _.?ctdcnt they found that
the mob had nearly lifted the car from
Its trucks In an effort to secure the
body of the boy. Revolvers popping in
the tenement houses added to the con
fu?lon as they charged into the throng
and rescued Oec-r?e Thompson, the mo

have, been transmitted, not delivered in
person, by the ('birf Executive.
Although th?-- details of the Joint ses?
sion have not been arranged, owing to
the uncertainty as to Huertas attitude,
HouFe and Senate leaders are prepared
to act soon after the two bodies meet
to-morrow. Mr Underwood, the ma?
jority leader of the House, suggested

HUERTA REFUSES SALUTE;
DENIES INSULTING FLAG
Mexico City, April 19.?The Mexican Foreign Minister. Se?or Portillo,
announced to-night that it would be impossible to agree to the demand of
the United States that the flag of t' at country be unconditionally saluted,
because that flag was not insulted, because it was not flying from the Ameri?
can launch, and because the marines were ?et free even before an investi?
gation and the officer responsible for the arrests was himself arrested and
held for trial.
The Foreign Minister further announced that the Mexican government
woould aproe that both flags be saluted?the American flag first, and then
the Mexican flag?this arrangement to be made by a protocol signed by the
American Charg? d'Affa?re?j, Nelson O'Shaughnessy, and the Mexican For?
The United States government, Se?or Portillo declared, had re-fused
permission to Mr. O'Shaughnessy to sign such a protocol, and demanded
an unconditional salute by Mexico, which Mexico felt was incompatible
with her dignity.
In conclusion, the Minister of Foreign Affairs said:
"Mexico has yielded as much as her dignity will permit. Mexico trusts
to the fair-mlndednesss and spirit of justice of the American people."
Weehington, April 19.?The Tribune correspondent has definite infor?
mation that eome time ago General Huerta informed President Wilson that,
if the United States Intervened in Mexico, he, Huerta, would fight. The
message came In connection with a ststeme-nt from Huerta that, If the
United States did not stop interfering with him, he could not handle the
?ituetion, and that it would shortly be up to th? United States to do so.
If It did, however, Huerta would fight.

Washington. April 19.?War with Mexico is inevitable Presi?
dent Huerta has flatly refused to comply with the demands of the
United States, and President Wilson, having been informed of this
fact by telephone, has called a special meeting of the Cabinet for
10:30 o'clock to-morrow morning to hear his special message laying
the facts before Congress.
A joint session of the two houses of Congress will be held at

President Wilson contemplates a belligerent, rather than a
"peaceful," blockade of Mexican ports on both the Atlantic and Pa?
The Atlantic fleet is meanwhile ploughing its way at 12 knots
or faster toward the Mexican coast, and the army is, figuratively
speaking, up on its toes awaiting word from the White House to pre?
pare for action.
Every preparation possible in advance of a declaration of war has
been taken by the military forces, and ships are in readiness to con?
vey the troops to Lower Mexico, if it is decided not to enter that
country from the north.
Both houses of Congress will doubtless pass a resolution indors?
ing the course of the President and making such appropriation for
military purposes as Mr. Wilson may desire before adjournment to?
Opinion is still divided as to whether Huerta is deliberately forc?
ing intervention, or whether he has so misconstrued the iuibearance
of the administration in Washington as still to believe that it is
According to the representatives of the President now in Wash?
ington, there is nothing further which Huerta can do to avert the
drastic measures to which the administration is committed by its
ultimatum and Huerta's refusal to comply with its provisions, al?
though it would surprise no one if, in the eleventh hour, Huerta made
some desperate effort to avert the disaster which his treatment of the
TT?i^d States has brought on his country.
