"If we return a salute to those bandits," says he, "we might as well fire a few guns to the Memory of Robin Hood, Raisuli or of Jesse James." f ASSOCIATED TRESS DISl'ATCHl WASHINGTON', April 17. The pres ident has flatly rejected Huerta's sug gestions for a "simultaneous salute" to American, a Mexican flags. He in formed Huerta that the United States would insist on a literal compliance with the original demand of Mavo, made April 9 in a written eommunica- 1 tion to -General Garaoza Immediately after the arrest of the American blue Jackets at Tampico. Washington in formed Huerta his wish for a simul taneous firing of salutes was unten able and that, as was demanded by Mayo, a salute of 21 guns will be in sisted upon, the manner of returning the salute to be left to the American admiral, who had agreed to fire one to the Mexican flag. Naval precedent showed no "simultaneous salute-' had ever been fired in an apology for an offense. No reply to the last American note transmitted through O'Shaughnessy j has been received up to tonight and no : orders to the American war fleets tn i slow down, or turn back, have been j issued. The administration officials j considered, however, that while the main point ut i.-stie the exchange of 1 salutes has been settled, Htierta's 'haggling over details" as one official expressed it, is not likely to prevent an adjustment of the controversy. They oeiieve.l the crisis over, but on the other hand, in view of the kaleido scopic change of the last few d.ivs, it is said they will not be surprised if the hitch over details became serious 'gain. The government has taken the posi tion that when the salute of 21 guns is fired to the Stars and Stripes, a sa lute in acknowledgement will be fired to the flag of the Mexican people, and not to the Huerta administration or to any government or individual. There is much discussion in official circles, not only about the propriety of return ing Htierta's salute in view of the pe culiar diplomatic relations between Mexico City and Washington, but be cause of the navy regulation No. 114 which reads: "No salute shall be fired in honor of any nation, or any official of any na tion not formally recognized by the government of the United States." In explanation of this point, Bear Admiral Fiske. after a conference with Secretary Daniels, issued the following statement: "This regulation is interpreted as a prohibition against firing a salute in honor of any government which has recently come into being, or in honorof an official of such a gov ernment, and if it has not been formally recognized by our govern ment. Any such salute shall be con sidered as a recognition of that gov ernment. In order to escape the consequence of such an apparent re cognition it would become necessary for our government to formally dis avow it. In 1S93 Bear Admiral Stan ton made the mistake of saluting the flag of Rear Admiral Mello, who was then in revolt against tho Brazilian government, xne Brazilian govern ment complained, which promptly re sulted in the disavowal of the salute and the relief of Stanton from com mand.. "Paragraph 1194 is not interpreted as forbidding the firing of a salute in honor of any nation of which the government has merely passed from the hands of certain individuals to those of other individuals, even though our government may not have recognized the new individuals. For instance, our ships in entering Mexi can ports have saluted ports, and the salute has been returned. This is considered merely as in honor of the sovereignty of the republic of Mexico, and not in honor of any individuals who may have gotten control of the machinery of that government. Sa lutes are national salutes and not personal." It was pointed out that the colors of Admiral Mello were not the Bra zilian flag, but the flag of the re bellious forces. Secretary Daniels in discussing the return of the salute, said he had con sulted the general naval board which ' - ' .'V II Too Wmi opwse I , 1 . is" t- ANOTHER HE EST HAS CLOSED Mexican Constitutional i s t Officer Who Took Side Arms of Govs. Hunt's and McDonald's Aides - de Camp Reprimanded TASSoi-IATKI" Pl.KSS MsCATrfll D TOLAS, April 17. With a severe reprimand by Colonel Ouorrer", the constitutionalist commander on the Sonor.i border, to the captain of the squad which deprived the four Arizona militia officers of their side, arms on Wedn-sriay and the return of the swords, the incident is closed. In de fense of the action, the captain said, the Agua 1'ricta military authorities were not notified in advance of the visit of the governors and when he saw fourteen automobiles filled with gov ernors, citizens and officers carrying swords, lie thought it might be the pos sible outcome of the Tampico incident and the visitors may b an attacking party.

Mr. Daniels spoke of the fact that Mexican gunboats, even although in the possession of the unrecognized Huerta government, sa luted when they passed American warships. He referred to the recent visit to New Orleans of the. Mexican gunboat which had not been saluted by the shore batteries. The war de partment inquired, of the navy de partment at that time about the pre cedents, jiuid the army officers in charge at New OrledYis were ad vised to return the salute. "It is not a salute to a govern ment or to an administration," said Daniels, "but to the flag of a people." The difficulties which arose over Htierta's request for a simultaneous salute created situation of uncer tainty and unrest throughout the day, not equalling in tension, however, the feeling that prevailed when the de cision was first reached to send the (Continued on Page Three.)
