Action Follows Warning to Carranza of
Same Dealing as Huerta Is Getting for
Those Going to His Support.
More than 4.000 Infantry and Some Cavalry to Proceed at
Once from Galveston for Mexican Port Under
General Funston.
[Trota The Tribune Bureau |
Washington, April 23.?The President, after emphatically in?
sisting throughout the day that there was no war, yielded this even?
ing to the recommendations of Mr. Garrison. Secretary of War, and
itithorized the Secretary to instruct that no munitions of war be
permitted to cross the Mexican boundary.
Secretary Garrison also secured authority to send General
Funston, with a brigade of infantry, to the assistance of the navy
at Vera Cruz.
There is a strong suspicion that, acting on his own initiative.
Secretary Garrison last night ordered the military authorities along
the boundary to prevent the shipment of arms across the border
pending further orders from Washington.
The President declared this afternoon that he did not contem?
plate a blockade of Mexican ports on either the Atlantic or Pacific
coast, because it would be an act of war, and that for the same
reason no embargo had been placed on the exportation of arms and
Replying to the communication of General Carranza, the Presi?
dent informed him and his followers that the United States would
be compelled to deal with all who went to the support of Huerta
as it had been compelled to deal with Huerta himself.
.Secretary Bryan handed his passports to the Mexican charge
at the request of the later.
The President explained to inquirers that the severance
of diplomatic relations through the method of handing their pass?
ports to the diplomatic representatives, was not always followed
by war.
Those who talked to the President to-day are convinced that
it is the determination of the administration neither to declare war
nor to admit its existence until actually forced to do so by some act
of the Mexicans, preferably by a declaration of war by the Mexican

Galveston. April 23.?There was a dance announced to-night at
the Hotel Galveston, so the officers of the 5th Brigade came to
dinner ai the big hotel in tropic white uniforms, the women folk in
low neck dresses. With red candle shades and palms bending in
the breeze from the Gulf and the orchestra playing "Peu d'Amour"
the scene was intimately pretty, friendly and one of peace.
Then an aid in khaki bowed to Mrs. Evans, and with his hand
on the shoulder of Major Evans, whispered. Evans is the adjutant
general of the 5th Brigade, the one listed to be the first to move.
and it was as though that whisper had carried to every table in
the room.
We all watched him as he left the room, pausing to ?peak t<
two brother officers.
"The army goes on board at daybreak," he said. A minute la
the tables were empty, automobiles were hooting on their wa*
camp and around the telegraph office in the rotunda was a m
five rows deep, and the dance was indefinitely postponed.
Those men who will embark at sunrise on the transports
for Vera Cruz are in a state of perfect preparedness. They are pre?
pared by months of practice marches in full service kit over many
weary miles, by manoeuvres under war conditions, by hours at th??
rifle ranges, where they have learned to place quickly and with pre?
cision a certain number of bullets wherever they will do the most
Their physical condition is splendid. They look hard, fit, clean
?like athletes balancing at the scratch, waiting for the pistoL To?
morrow they will embark in a manner to give credit to the officers
and pride to the taxpayers.
The departure in no way will resemble the mobilization and
embarking of our army sixteen years ago for Cuba. In this case
comparisons are gratifying. Since the war with Spain the army
has learned much about transports. Then thirty-four years had
passed since it had gone down to the sea in ships. It lacked practice.
At Tampa the rule for embarkation was first come first senred.
A transport would be brought to the wharf and the nearest regi?
ment, much like Barbary pirates, would swarm over the side.
For disembarking the rule was the devil take the hindermoat.
Neither ruie worked. In those days transports did not belong to
the army. They were coast trade passenger steamers rented by the
government. All that is changed. The Philippines changed It
The transports Meade, Kirkpatrick, Sumner and McClellan?
which leave here to-morrow, were built for the army and are owned
and bossed by the army, and for years, with the regularity of trolley
cars, have been dispatched to Manila, China, Cuba and Panama.
At sunrise they will leave without a hitch and carry with them
5,000 joyous, jubilant ?ghtme men.
To-night the provost guard has only to stick his head in a
door and shout and the "movies" are deserted, glasses are left un
tasted, billiard cues fall and the men in khaki, clinging to the trol?
ley cars like drowning men to a life raft, are speeding back to camp.
