Want Huerta Allowed to
Appoint Man Selected
By Conference for Presi
dent, as Minister of For
eign Affairs
Such An Act, However, It
Is Contended Would Re
Tantamount to Recogni
tion of the Present Gov
United States is unwilling to extend
recognition to the new provisional
president if named according to the
method prescribed by the Mexican
delegates, it was learned tonight. The
method is that Huerta would ap
point as minister of foreign affairs
the man who is agreed upon here to
head the new government. The Wash
ington administration contends that if
Huerta is permitted to name a for
eign minister, who by constitutional
succession would be elevated to the
presidtncy, even though the selection i
is made here, such an act would be j
construe! as a recognition or tne
Huerta f.overnment.
On tFis issue the mediating pleni
potentiaries came to a disagreement
at a conference held for considera
tion of .the exact method by which
the new provisional government in
Mexico is to be created. For more
than two hours the mediatois and
American delegates argued in vain
and it was apparent when the con
ference ended that what hitherto has
been considered a subject of detail
had suddenly developed into a snag.
Although the mediators argued
strongly from the Mexican stand
point, there is good reason to believe
the Mexican delegates will not insist
upon this arrangement if it is found
the United States is determined
against it.
One of the Mexican delegates stat
ed that they regarded the fori of
tr.mt,rtiun us ;; technicality w.iich
will be dispensed with if the Ameri
can government found it impossible to
agree to the methods suggested by
the Mexican delegates. The mediators
contended that the forms of the Mexi
can constitution 'should be preserved
in the present instance. The Ameri
can delegates are understood to have
pointed out that the constitutionalists
would tiever agree to a plan of tran
sition which legalized Huerta's status.
Also the American government, it is
asserted, could not consistently with
its previous course,

would be tantamount to recog
if Huerta actually appointed his own
successor. There is a possibility a !
compromise will be agreed upon.

WASHINGTON, June 9. The senate
marched steadily forward toward final
action on the Panama tolls exemption
repeal bill, but the leaders are unwil
ling to predict on which day the vote
can be taken. Senator Tillman of
South Carolina, made an unusual
speech criticizing the president for
bringing the tolls Issue before the
country at this time and endangering
the chances of the democratic party in
congressional elections next fall. Till
man announced he would vote for the
repeal only because he felt his state
party convention had freed him from

SALTILLO, (Sunday via K! r-iso

ators is being thoroughly discussed by ,
the general and his advisers. What the
purport of the reply will be, is not in- ;

but there is a strong feeling among
the constitutionalist leaders that the

Velasco's federals made their last des

clared Tillman. "I am unable to un-
derstand why he projected the fight on
his party at this time. Until this issue
was pressed to the front the course ot
democracy has been onward, and up-
ward. Opposition is hopeless and
helpless. There is wisdom in silence,

are so many things of more import-
