The true ..gnlflcancc of Ambassador Gerard's v.J.t to the German grand army licad Tjrters, whore he will have an uudl ecce with the Herman Emperor, was explained to-day In oflkial advices from Berlin. The Islt has been made at Se Emperor's request in order to per ait him to convey through Amlassa.' dor Gerard an earnest plea to President Wilson to maintain friendly relations ith Germany. No discussion of the submarine Is sue between the Emperor and Ambas &dor Gerard is expected. Details of (he negotiations and the framing of tiie German reply to the American note ire now in the hands of Chancellor von Bethm.inn-Hollwes. The German Kaiser's message to Mr. Gerard will deal primarily with the r.ecesslty of averting war "between two fnendly peoples" over what German i.rticlals here describe as "technical In terpretations of international law" I which could be satisfactorily adjusted if arbitration or by an International tribunal.

With starvation and pestilence all over the country, financial chaos and business stagnation in the principal cities, particularly Mexico city, the people ore ready to oust Venustlano Carranza, It is said.
