May 3.?Because of the persistent reports that the Huerta regime is tottering to its fall, whi : are accepted as authentic by the a.'. ministration. Secretary Garrison he a conference this evening with Assi ant Secretary Breckinridge and crals Wothcrspoon. Crowdcr, and Alcshire, and later with th' sistant Secretary of the Navy. It is regarded as highly pos*-. that Huerta's abandonment of tl, P-esidency will result in a situation m thr Mexican capital which will ne? cessitate the immediate dispatch of troops to Mexico City to maintain or? der and protect the lives and property of foreigners. The foreign legations have taken the p-ecaution to equip themselves wit?? guards and arm*; for use in such an emergency, but these would be insti' ftcicnt for a long siege against a native population, which might throw off all restraint as soon as it was discovered tnat the dictator himself had taken flight. In such an event it would fall to the lot of the United States, with troop? at Vera Cruz, to enter the capital, aftet assuring the Constitutlonaliat and other forces that It did ?o only for the purpose of maintaining order. The force now under the commam! of General Fuhston is scarcely adc quate for that purpose. Even in the - vicinity of Vera Cru? there are about ten thousand Federal troops. There is doubt that Huerta will leave behind him any one who will be competent to control the army The fear that a reign of terror may rrevail is entertained here, eapeciall/ by the military authorities.
