WASHINGTON. May ."..Develop ments in thp Mexican situation were divided between the diplomatic and military status. The South American envoys continued their sessions and for the first time it became authoritatively known they considered the whole range of Mexican affairs as properly em braced in their work. Their reply to Carranza eliminated him from the me diation for the time being, but still left it open for him to enter proceed ings later. It became clear that the war depart ment's policy at Vera Cruz will be maintained, with no advance of Amer ican forces, unless to repel attacks. Put it is known that a definite course of action has been outlined and in the event of the resumption of hostilities, the extension of jthe campaign toward Mexico City. In that event General Leonard Wood would be in supreme command, with General Funston di recting the advance beyond Vera Cruz and General Eailcy of the coast artil lery in command of the base at Vera Cruz. This arrangement, however, is wholly In the line of preparadness and signi fies no present purpose of being put into operation. Congress, after a period of silence on Mexico, again came into the sit uation. Senator Lippitt, of Rhode Island, introduced a resolution call ing on the president for information as to the published reports that it is the administration's purpose to aid Viila to secure the presidency. The resolution went over until to morrow. The South American medi ators will meet at Niagara Falls, in Canada, on May IS, to hear repre sentatives of the parties to the con troversy. During the brief spirited discus sion. Senator Lodge read from a London paper a scathing denuncia tion of Villa. The president and his cabinet met, but only routine busi ness was considered. The sessions ot the mediators continued through the day. Trie text of the note of the medi ators to Caranza stated definitely for the first time, "that all difficulties which contributed toward the pres ent situation' in Mexico bear either directly or indirectly on a solution of the pending conflict between Mexico and the 1'nited States.

Military Governor Of Chihuahua is Removed By Villa ASSOCIATED PKESS DISPATCH EL PASO, May 5. General Manuel Chao has been removed as constitu tionalist governor of Chihuahua by General Villa. The report ot the ex change in executives reached the bord er tonight. The removal, it is said, was the result of an intrigue against Villa by Chao in an effort to have the conqueror of Torreon replaced as gen-eral-in-chief of the irmy. Trinidad Rodriguez has been named governor and Chao ordered to report at the front beyond Torreon for active field ser vice. Silvestro Terrazas, who has been secretary of state of Chihuahua and who is a close friend of Chao, wns re moved at the same time and has been succeeded by Augustin La Ranstadt, formerly of police for governor Abram Ganzales. Chao and Terrezas are re garded as being too closely aligned with Carranza while his successors friends of Villa. .The constitutionalist representatives here deny that the removal of Chao in dicated strained relations between Car ranza an, Villa, but say on the con trary it indicates the relations are so close that not even the personal friend ship of Carranza for Chao could pro duce a break. The constitutionalists declare the leaders realize it absolute ly essential at the present time in view of the situation of their cause with re lation to Huerta and the United States that they present an undivided front, that dissension in their ranks would not be tolerated. When Chao's activi ties became so pointed that they no longer could be overlooked, they say the leaders agreed, he must be elim inated. It is asserted by the constitu tionalists that Carranza himself warned Chao that unless he curbed his tongue ! he would find trouble. The opponents of the constitutionalists point to the removal of Chao as widening the breach they insist exists between Car ranza and Villa. who has just completed negotiations with Huerta for the removal of a large quantity of bullion from the district in the vicinity of the capital. j asserted that Huerta is still sending j troops northward and apparently dreads the approach of Villa more j than the advance of the Americans. From personal observations tne re fugee estimated that Maas had less than a thousand men under his or ders. Huerta, the refugee asserts, has done nothing to show he anticipated a forward movement on the part of the American army or that he ex pects in the even such a movement to offer a serious resistance. The government powder factory is turn ing out daily some six thousand dy namite bombs, that it is understood are intended for defense against an attack on the capital by Villa or j Zapata. Mexico City, he said, was filled with rumors that Huerta has resigned and disappeared, but the provisional president in the mean time went about with customary freedom, without guard, dining in the public restaurants and giving no out ward appearance of the strain under which he. is living. In the capital Americans and other -foreign business houses, he declared, have re-opened and are experiencing little difficulty. To Withdraw Troops CALEXICO, May 5.

He said: "The expedition proved a signal success. It was undertaken origin ally for the American Museum of Natural History. During the trip we collected over SlOn birds, mammals, a few reptiles, batrachians and fish, chiefly from regions not hitherto traversed by any collector, many rep resenting species . hitherto unknow n to science. The most important part of the trip was the geographical. In the exploration of an unknown river we have put on the map a. river nearly l'lOu miles long, the existence of which is not hinted on published maps. "The upper part of its course was unknown to anybody exeept to wild Indians along its banks, while the lower part was known to a few rub ber men only. The river takes a rise in the high uplands of the western part of the state of Matto Grosso, just north of the thirteenth parallel, south latitude and between longitude Ti'.t and ;.) west of Greenwich. "We embarked in latitude 12 de grees. 1 minute south, and longitude So degrees, IT, minutes, west. "The river ran with man doublings and twistings almost due north into the River Madeira. "We were sixty days in canoes. In latitude 7 degrees south, we pass ed the last rapids, and reached the I steamer when we were but thirty six hours from Manaou. "In latitude 10 degrees, .18 minutes, south, we struck the mouth of a big affluent flowing from the right in latitude 9 degree. 49 minutes south, we came to the mouth of .another big affluent flowing from the left. "Duvida river in point of volume is like the Rhine, Elbe or Hudson, but is too much broken by rapids to be navigable, except in the lower parts. In about 7 degrees 30 minutes south latitude it joins another river of practically the same size, flowing from the right. "We were six weeks at steady la bor slogging away on the average making not more than a couple of miles a day.- The last part of this time we were living on half rations. "Two sets of rapids were at the lottom of canyons where the river clove its way through mountain chains. "Of the seven canoes with which we 'started, five were lost in the rapids.

In fact be had been named and sworn in, bill after learning that he would be ex pected to devote his entire time to the work and would be unable to conduct his architectural work while performing the. work of the city posi tion, he was obliged to withdraw his acceptance of the position. Mann studied engineering at the Armour Institute for one year, and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for four years. He was first employed by the Hammond Packing Company as de signing engineer and made designs for a complete factory now in opera tion at the Union Stock Yards in Chicago. After leaving their employ he spent a year with the Western Electric Company as designer of elec tric apparatus. ' He then entered the employ of a Chicago contractor and held various positions, first as time keeper, then carpenter foreman, steel foreman and concrete foreman, and was finally appointed superintendent of construction. Among the buildings erected under his supervision in Chicago j)re the Selz-Schwah Shoe factory occupying an entire block, the Stoele-Wedeles Building constistirg of ten stories and five basements and the Princess the ater building. In Globe he built the Gila Valley Bank, the four story con crete jail, the Board of Trade build ing, and many others. In Phoenix he has built several bridges and structures for the government as well as several residences.
