END OF MEDIATION EXPECTED TO-DAY Mexican Statement Inter? preted as First Step to Blame U. S . NOTHING IN SIGHT TO BREAK DEADLOCK Washington Said to Believe Reb? els Have Long Road to Travel to Oust Huerta. [Ttom Tlif Tribun? Hurten.] Washington. June 18.?The effort? of tin? A B " mediators, of Huerta and his d? *??? ?if the government of the United States to find a oolutlon of the Mexican problem by conferences at t Niagara Kails OTS expected to end to- ? morrow. Many officials liere believe that th* .Mexbati delegate?, in issuing a state? ment last night declaring that th*) Amanean insistence upon *. Coustitu tionallst to head the provisional gOI - ?rnnietu would be fatal were simplv laying the foundation for a case ai-nififit this government. They are in? tent, it Is believed, upon present!ig their argument to the world first, ptfl - ing 'he blame for failure on what OsOJ aliaga to be the unreasonable conten? tions of the United Stat?.?. It is feared in some ?carters that the A B C mediators will take a similar ottltinie and that if tills proves <!?? ?ase the mediation, instrad of ptesing tin* United States In a good pofsitlun before Latin-America, which was one of the prime reaaons for the partici? pation ??f the United States in tne project, will have an opposite eff? ? Nothing to Save Situation. There seems to be little chance of the presentation of nt.w proposals whi'-li Will save the situation. The ?'onstk'' ti'in.nlists, in spite of the disagreement between ? '.?riHtr/.a and Villa, ar<: ad.i niant on the ?.?uostioi a of ?um-purt!?-; patlon in and non-u?? eptan.e of the result of tho mediation. They declaro they would rather fight for triumph m Mexico ?Mty and control of the govern? ment. Until to-day officials of the govern? ment have professed optimism and hope that the difficulty would be bridged over. Now, however, offli'ials are "afraid that to-morrow marks the end' of mediation. Secretary Bryan still ex? presses hope, but as he Is optimistte under th<* most adverse circumstani;c;.'i his hopefulness is discounted through out Washington. Mr. Bryan said this afternoon that be had not.the slightest Intention of going to Niagara Kalis to maK" representa? tions to the mediators. There was a n in circulation here, emanating fl-ors high quarters, that Mr. Bryan be? lieved that the only way to save the situation was for him to go to Niagara Kails and there adjust the differences that have arisen. No one in Washington seems to know Just what Ihe administration will do when the Niagara Kails ?-*Oflfe*?0ltcej come to an end. It is believed certain that tlier^ will ensue a p?-riod of watch? ful waiting to ser if the Cot*iaUtUtlon? ulists will overthrow Huerta by force of arms. Troops at Vers Cruz. If the mediation fails there will be no withdrawal of American for?*es from Vera Cruz. The army will also be kept l on the border and the garrison of troops at Texas City will be ntaiind. It is expe.'ted. if DKBdlatlon fallt, that Huerta will ask that Van Cruz be evacuated, but this will not be done. With the failure of mediation the so called armistice between Huerta and i the United States will come to an end. It is not considered likely that the 1'nlted States will take aggressive a? j tion unless Huerta does, and the ! chances of Huerta doing so are meas? ured only by his possible desire to pre? cipitate American intervention in order to bring to the Mexican capital soldiers of the 1'nited States rather than those of the Constitutionalists. ?
