HUERTA WILL RETIRE, SAY HIS ENVOYS
Mexican Delegates Issue Formal Statement at Niagara Falll
That Their Chief Will Not Let Personal Pride
Stand in Way of 1 lis Country's Welfare.
By GEORGL GRISWOLD HILL.
Niagara Falls, Ont.. June 2.?President Huerta has informel
the Mexican delegates to this conference that he approves the plan
submitted to him Wednesday in principle.
The Mexican delegates gave out this evening a statement setting
forth the willingness of President Huerta to retire and his unwilling?
ness to permit any question of personal pride to interfere with the
welfare of Mexico.
They also assert that there is no basis for the contention that
consideration of internal affairs is derogatory to sovereignty.
The ABC mediators agreed this morning to inform Senor
Zubaran. the representative of General Carranza in Washington, that
a delegation representing the Constitutionalists would be weclome to
participate in the peace conference, provided they would come on the
same terms as the other parties thereto. The decision of the mediatot s
was communicated to the American and Mexican delegates to-day
and a letter has gone forward this evening to Zubaran.
