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

come to an end. It is believed certain
that tlier^ will ensue a p?-riod of watch?

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.
