reached htm that the ConstltutlonalltU
wid Federals nt Tamplco had nrranged

in tho vicinity of that city.
Oflclnls Not Hlaapiinlntrd.
While tho United Btatcs olllclals aro
earnestly desirous of u peaceful ncttlo
meut of the Mexican situation, there Is
good reason to bcllevo they are not
greatly disappointed ut Carranza's ro
fusnl to enter Into an armistice. The
fundamental principle uf President Wil
son's Mexican policy !i that ltuerta
must go and this end now seems more
likely to be achieved through tho quick
success of the Constitutionalist forces
than through the slow process of media
tion negotiations. There is no doubt In
Washington that the Wilson Adminis
tration now has n very definite plan of
campaign In mind In Mexico. It pro
poses to hold Vera Cruz and starve.
Huerta through the shutting off of his
principal source of revenue and am
munition, while the Constitutionalists
sweep on victoriously from the. north
to Mexico city.
The Washington Government Is
hourly expecting news of tho fall of
Tamplco Into the hands of tho Consti
tutionalists and Villa already Is in tho

The probable fall of these two cities
within the next few days will, accord
ing to the Information that has reached
Washington, murk th" end of Hucrta's
government In Mexico city. An uprising
Against the dictator has been smoulder
ing for several day, and these new re
verses,; It Is contended, will fun tho lire
of discontent Into a ll.uuo.
Evidence of a break In lluerta's otll
clal family has already appeared In the
enforced resignation of Senor I'ortlllo
y llojus as Mexican Minister of foreign
Affairs, lie has been regarded us one of
the most conservative and nblo of
lluerta's counsellors und hus been com
mended personally even by President
There are rumors that (Jen. Ulnniiuci,
who was 'notorious for (lie part that ho
played In turning upon Madcro und as
sisting Huerta to power, is now showing
signs of weakening In his support of the
dictator. Blanquet Is lluerta's Minister of
War, and if Ills power should be thrown
against the hitter lluerta's last hope
would be gone.
The stand taken by Carranza to-day
against entering Into any armistice with
Huerta wilt probably result In restricting
the work of tho mediators to tho settle
ment of the acuto situation between the
United States and Huerta, If the latter
continues to hold on in Mexico city. At
this time, however, tho mediators have
no Intention of giving up entirely their
efforts to bring about an adjustment of
Mexico's Internal differences. They In
tend to go ahead with their original pro
gramme, even If tho forces of Huerta and
Carranza continue hostilities In the flelJ.
One of the suggestions to he made by
the mediators li that both Carranza atrl
Huerta shall resign their pretensions ta
the provisional Presidency and that a
third man acceptable to botli faction'
hall be named to act as provisional
President until a constitutional election
can be held.
V. 9. Delegate Xtit Named.
No attempt has been made by the
United Stales officials as yet to select a
representative to attend the peneo con
ference ' with the mediators. Opinion In
Washlnaton still leans toward Klchard 01-
ney, ex-Secretary of State, as the tcpii"
sentatlve of tho United States. Secretary
Bryan said to-day that this Government
would be In no nurry to namo us ueic
nit to tha board.
The question a-tked by representatives
ef foreign Governments to-r.lgh. w as whit
will happen If Huertu does yield and seeks
personal safety through withdrawing from
the country. They have contended for a
long time that the United States would
find Itself In Just us dtllifult r situation
then as It Is now. The answer of this
Government Is that with Carranza and
the Constitutionalist In control at Mex
ico city tho United states win immediately
be able to extenil terognmon nu wirow
it great Influence arid power to the sup
port of the new Government In Mexico.
In the meantime It Is pointed out that
most of the Americans havi 'eft Mexico
and this Government Is now In a better
condition than It hus ever been before to
meet any conditions of unarchy that
might arise through the change In gov
ernment With Huerta out the United
States might even find It expedient to use
the forces at Vera Cruz to fultll 'ts obl.ga
