in their efforts to effect the t*<-.ection

tho w ?alun of President Wilson, who
has. In effect, added to his insisten'.?
that Huerta must retire from the Pres?

Mediators Meat Delegates.
Progress is being made on th? l?t
tlement of the details of agreement
a**sached by th? mediators ?nd the dele?
gates Tues'lay and ratified by them at
th" full inoetlng of th? pea? e conference
in Toronto a weak ago to-day. The
mediators h;:d ? mcetini* \Mtli the Mex?
ican d?'i'gau*s to-day ?t which d?tails
were fli?-ciisH?'d. The American?; are
still awaiting u?vice from W?ihltagtOta
on certain points, while the dlscueeion
of names "till proceed?, although it is
not necessary to hold fv?n the Infor
Ml conferences which liave been th?
custom, results being ?Chieved by
purely informal meetings between one
or other of m? dlnton* and one or other
of the American or Mexican ?lelegates.
The administration ?v Washington
has suggested thai it might be com?
pelled t?> invade Mexico and fight the
Constitutionalists should it fail to In- ;
?luce them to agree to the plan formu
tatted here, and that, therefore, such
agreement would not accomplish peace.
To this It bus been pointed out that
there is little or no likelihood o? such a
contingency, becauae a provisional gov?
ernment supported by th?? United
States and the A B C countries could
istablisb peace in Mexico.
?Second, because the people ?if Mex?
ico peek certain reforms and arc not j
concerned with the personal ambition
of Carranza or Villa, but would loyally
.??'li'port a government which they real?
ized adequately repr?intod th? reforms
for which th.'fe leaders have contended.
Third, because, without r?cognition
by the united st.it?m and persisting on
their military course In defiance of this
country and the A B C nations, the
Constitutionalists could procure neither
arms nor ammunition, and their move- ,
nient, without resources and without '
popular rapport, would full of its own
Fear Their Own Army.
The real difficulty which confronts
the Constitutionalists is, first, th?lr
fear of their own army, which is not a
well disci[?lln?d force which could be
controlled under an armistice or used
for the restoration of order, and would
probably turn on Its leaders if de?
prived of the privileges of looting and '
laiding, and. second, the great dissen?
sion which exists among the Consti?
tutionalist leaders. This is more evi?
dent. Members of the Washington
junta art* qa?rflil1lag. carranza is
afraid of Villa, the representatives of
Carranza ut points other than Wash?
ington are in conflict with the Wash?
ington junta, and so on.
The length to which Justice Lehman,
in an exceptionally eloquent speech at
last night's dinner, committed hi*? gov?
ernment to the cause of peace is re?
garded as highly significant, and ?*i gen?
eral tone of optimism prevails here. It
is not believed that President Wilson
will assume the responsibility of re?
jecting the peace which is at his hand
und precipitating a war which can be
so easily avoided, and there Is abso?
lute confidence among those InterestVi
that if they and General Huerta agree
to the terms of the peace about to be
made here the Constitutionalists, with
such grace as they can summon, **.ill

Just what was contained In the note
ftoin the mediators to General Car?

here. The mediators saul that out of
?ourtei-y to Carranza the document
would not be made public here. An
answer js not expected for another ?'ay
or two, but there is a general confi?
dence that it will be favorable.
The mediators have not literally in?
vited the Constitutionalists anew, but
the phraseology of the note is such as
to ??ave the way for tbi ir entrance into
the negotiations, it is in effect n clari?
fication of the misunderstandings which
have existed, and if ?onstued in the

The,, ?v every disposition on the part
of the m? ilutors to treat the interests
of the Constitutionalists fairly nnd
with ? realization that they dominate
now the larger part of Mexico and
i constitute practically the most impor?
tant factor in the entire problem. It is
understood here that the Constitution?
alist s have hesitated to favor mediation
because of a misconception of the char?
acter of the proceeding?.
Mediators Full of Tact.
The mediators arc daily appioa hing
Mexican internal questions which have
as well an International aspect in the
most tactful manner. The Huerta dele?
gates, for instance, have been able to
discuss those phaseB without yielding
1 the sovereignty of the nation. There
' la no purpose to legislate on the land
i question. The American delegates have
never sugested any specific plan for
'. the remedy of the agrarian troubles,
I nor do they intend to do so. What the
American government and the media?
tors desire is that the new provisional
government shall be morally obligated
! to take up the land question and dis?
pose of it with justice to all Interests.
What they wish most of all is that
the new government will be BO im?
pressed with its obligations as a result
of the mediation that It cannot ignore
! the problem as has be? n done for t*WO
: score years.
While the lan.l Question has not been
, the only cause of unrest in Mexico, it
has constantly l>rcd incipient revolu?
tions. The American government and
the mediators alike consider they are
morally bound to render a service to
humanity by extending friendly coun?
sel and ailvice in respe? t to the solution
of internal problems, ao that the na
? tional governm? r.t can be made so
strong it can maintain internal peace
and thus to be in position to guaran
: tee its capacity for observing lnterna
' tional obligations.
Example to Pan-America.
The mediators feel that the doasU
tutionalists will find her?' that th?*!r in?
terests will be respected, their argu?
ments receive every consideration, and
that the fairest spirit of Impartiality
and friendship will be extended to
them. The latest correspondence with
the Constitutionalists do?s not reveal
entirely the hopes and wishes of the
mediators, but unofficially it is known
that the mediators sincerely want the
<*onstitutionahsis to come in'o the con?
ferencia so that the solution of peace, il
methods muy be a historl?* example to
Pan-America of the way revolution can
be ended and peace restored in the
countries of this hemisphere.
Hut If the Constitutionalists are ob?
durate and refus?* to enter, preferring
the pathway of bloodshed to the ways
of peace, mediation will proceed. An

OVER ARMS CARGO
Denies He Knew of Antilla
Shipment, Though Told
of It on Monday.
NO MORE EXPORTS TO
BE ALLOWED, HE SAYS
Treasury and Commerce Depart?
ments. However. Unaware
of Such Orders.
"From The Trlbane Bureau 1
Washington. Jgne Z ?In peirmltting the
departure of a shipment of ammunition
from .New York for Tampleo the govern
ment of the United States has apparently
committed a violation of an und?i*stan?i
lng with ths ABC mediator? that dur?
ing the mediation no ?rms or ammunition
would be permuted to go from this coun?
try to Mexico.
The .S?cr?tai y of State admitted to-day
that there was such an understanding
with the mediator*?, but he had no ex?
planation of the fact that In ?pite of this
understanding -the Anttlla was permitted
to g-t way with war supplies for the Cots*
stltutlonailst?. All that Mr. Bryan would
-ay waa that he did not know anything
about the ?shipment on board the Antilla.
IIow Tie could be in Ignorance not only
of the actual clearance of the vessel, but
alfo of the intention of shippers to send
arma on the Antilla, it unexplained. The
correspondent at The Tribune ha? been in?
formed that on Monday the State Depart?
ment was Informed by another f\c>uti\e
department of the government that the
Antilla would sail on Tuesday for Tam?
pico with 3,00??,O?*" rounds of ammunition
i? her hold.
The opinion is generally exprese.'. |n
Waahington that the administration Pim?
ply winked at the departure of the An?
tilla, feeling, perhaps, that so long ?I
Huerta recently received a large consign?
mint of ammunition the rebel? were en?
titled to something.
Mr. Bryan was absolutely explicit to?
day in sayi'ig th??t ordert? had been issued
agninat further exportation of aims from
the t'nited State? to Mexico, Whether by
lan?l or by sen. He ?aid that these orders
were iasued several days ago, ?nd he hint?
ed at a misunderstanding. He also ??Id
something about a possibility that orders
were sent to Southern porte and not to
those In the North.
When Mr. Bryan's Statement was pre- :
aented to otflcials of the Department? of;
Commerce and of the Treasury they de
clare?! with equal eandor that orders such
as Mr. Bryan Baaeribad had not been sent
out. In the light of the statement cred?
ited to the Collttetor of Customs In New
Voik that be **ecelved orders against ex?
portation of arms yesterday afternoon
there in a situation which seems beyond
It is thought here that there is no law
giving the government power to make the
discrimination which is contemplated, and
that the administration Is pimply taking
arbitrary action In the matter by Infor?
mally hinting to colle? tors at all ports to
hoM up ??II shipment- of arms. If ship?
pers wish to sn to the courts th? gO******U
ment will fight the point out there and
also obtain ? delay in shipments, which
will meet th? requirements of the agree?
ment ?its the mediators.
Policy Against Shipments.
As has been pointed out In The Tribune,
it has since Thursday or Friday been
the policy of the Secretary of State to
prohibit exportations of arms and ammu?
nition to Mexican port?, There are In the
til.'S of the State Department telegrams
to .*. rtain Irma, Including Walker Uros.
& Hancock, of Brownsville, Tex., and
Cal Hirsch, of St. Douis, telling them that
arms could not be sent to Mexico.
But there is nowhere to be found an
adequate explanation of why, four days
after the definite adoption of thi? policy, a
vessel laden with ammunition was per?
mitted to sail from New York Without ht?
terference, particulaily when there was
an agreement between this government
and the A B C mediators that auch ship?
ments would not be permitted.
The State Department to-day received a
telegram from Consul Canada, at Vera
Crus, stating that ships which cleared
from tha I'nlted States for Tampico were
required to have their papers signed by
the consular agents of the Constitutional?
ist?, who now hold Tsmplco. If the ves?
sels clear from ports where there are no
Constitutionalist consular agents, the pa
pen may l.?e signed by the postmasters at
those ports. Notice of this has been given
to all the foreign consul? at Tampico by
the Constitutionalist authorities there.
