Jus tice Lamar's memorandum to Emilio Rabasa, head of the Mexican delega tion, announcing that the United States "must insist" on acceptance of its plan fo-- the pacification of Mexico, is an ultimatum. Unless the Huerta delegates yield, mediation will end tomorrow or Sunday. This formal determination of the United States was conveyed to the medi ators today. Ambassador Da Gama, of Brazil, and Minister Suarez, of Chile, asked the American delegates if their po sition had changed in view of the Carranza-Villa split, and the -eply was in the negative. It was an in formal talk, but it served to advise the mediators that the published statements that the American and Huerta delegates, with their opposite view on the type of a man to be selected for provisional president, de fined the unalterable attitude of the American government. Just what the policy of the United States would be in the event of the failure of mediation, or what disposition it would make of the American troops at Vera Cruz is unknown even to the American delegates. The Huevta commissioners say they do not know what course of action Huerta may pursue.

The nam ing of the constitutionalist cabinet by Carranza is eagerly awaited by the constitutionalists as a possible means of healing the breach between Car ranza and Villa, according to arrivals here who left Saltillo and Monterey yesterday. There is a general impres sion at those points, according to the travelers, that Carranza would name his official family within two or three days. Should the men named be sat isfactory to the Villa faction, those conversant with the situation hoped the differences between the two leaders might be made things of the past.
