VOL 50. SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, THLRSDA Y, NOVEMBER 6, 1915. NO. 228. MEXI a Ik MEXICO HEARS .OF. WILSON'S.. DEip FIRST INFORMATION ABOUT U. S. ULTIMATUM LEAKS OUT IN MEX ICO CITY.-HUERTA, THROUGH f RIENDS, LETS IT BE KNOWN HE WILL IGNORE WILSON'S NOTE. NEXT MOVE IS NOW DUE FROM THE U. S. Washington, D. C., Nov. 6 The news that Huerta would reject the American demands for his elimination was received in official circles without comment. Secretary Bryan had a long conference with President Wilson. Chairman Bacon of the senate foreign relations committee, was an early White House caller. Talk of lifting the embargo on arms was revived in congressional circles with consider able vigor. Some senators have told the president there was an over whelming sentiment In congress in favor of permitting exports of arms to Mexico. The president In his ad dress to congress last August, took a position against lifting the embargo. Many persons have been pointing out to him, however, that one of the alter natives open, if Huerta declined to resign through the efforts of dpilom acy, was to lend a moral support to the constitutional movement. Consti tutionalists here declare they do not wish recognition of their belligerency, but only wish to obtain arms on an equality with Huerta. Although dis cretionary power to permit. - exhorta tions of munitions of war is vested with the president, some observers think it unlikely that he would take such a step without some communica tion with congress. That phase of the situation has given rise to expecta tions that President Wilson might soon read another message to con gress outlining the status of the nego tiations with Mexico and making spe cific suggestions for future policy. Officials declined to say today whether they had received any an swer directly or indirectly from Huer ta to the latest demands. . j Count Vtt,Bernstorff, the German ambassador, who only recently has re-1 turned to this country, had an en gagement to see the president late to day. Although the ambassador came to pay his respects, it was believed not Improbable that the Mexican sit uation would be discussed. Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, the British ambassador, returned to the capital this morning. The foreign relations committee dis cussed the Mexican situation at length and gave principal consideration of the proposition of lifting the embargo on arms. Senators said nothing defi nite had been done. From individual expressions of opinion it seemed that most senators on the committee had not changed their favorable attitude toward such a move but still were dis posed to defer to the president and await some Indication from him. The battleships Louisiana, New- Hampshire and Michigan, of the sec ond division of the Atlantic fleet which were to be relieved from duty in Mexican waters, on the arrival of the four vessels of the third division, were today formally ordered to re main at Vera Cruz. Orders were is sued -for the armored cruiser Califor nia to remain in Pacific Mexican wa iters, although original orders to the Pittsburg were to relieve the Califor ' ': nia. At the white housetoday it was of ficially stated that Charge d'Affaires O'Shaughnessy at Mexico City had recently been given certain instruc tions to communicate to the Huerta government. Whether such instruc tions were the same as those referred to as demanding the elimination of Huerta, officials declined to state spe cifically, German Warships on Tour. Berlin, Nov. 6. The newest German battleships. Kaiser and Koenig Albert, and the cruiser Strasburg, have been ordered to ileave early in December for South American waters. The cruise is said to be merely a "test voyage" but the warships, as is pointed out in the newspapers here, will evidently be available for service on the Mexican coast If it should prove necessary. German naval circles regard the 'South American cruise as patent evi dence that Anglo-German tension is disappearing, as this is the first time German battleships have been de tached from the North Sea fleet since the naval rivalry between Germany and Oreat Britain became acute. Mexico City, Nov. 6. There was still no Indication here this morning whether Provisional President Huerta would make a formal reply to the communication made by the United States. The nature of the memoran i dum is said to call for no other reply than compliance. How long Wash ington expects to wait for this com pliance after failing to receive a ver bal rejoinder, is a question which is greatly interesting the few here who are convinced of the passage of the communication from the United States government to the provisional president, Mexico City itself still is ignorant of the nature of the new representa tions made by Washington to Gener al Huerta. The newspapers here have printed only denials of the re ports from the United States until to day when they partially confirmed j uieni. me Jieram, m uuu uuguaii i daily newspaper, published a dispatch! from Vera Cruz, stating that .Tolin j SENATE BANKING COMMITTEE INCOHPO Liml, the personal representative ot President Wilson, had confirmed the reports of "certain indications being made by Washington to Mexico." Notwithstanding the necessary pre cautions surrounding the transmission by Nelson O'Shnughnessy, American charge d'affaires, o the Washington dispatch, enough has leaked out here to fill the city with rumors and end loss speculation today, as to what General Huerta's course of action will be. Opinion generally is in line with the unofficial information obtainable at the national palace last night that General Huerta intends to refuse com pliance with the United States de mands, but will proceed with the pro gram he has been following of re-organizing the Mexican congress and abiding by the finding of that body GRAND JURY TO CMENCY BILL I nnnn. rnUtft mint STRIKE RATES NEW FEATURES IN MEASURE OVER PROTESTS OF FIVE DEMOCRATS.

Stewart, a male i relative to the recent electlous, sim-!framcd Senators Reed, Hitchcock ultaneously ignoring Washington's warning that the new congress will not be countenanced. The purposes of General Huerta were voiced this morning by a person who is close to the provisional presi dent. The president is determined to reject all the demands set forth in the latest American communication and Is resolved to seat the congress just elected. If congress, however, declares the recent presidential election null and void and makes arrangements for an other election, General Huerta would be disposed to abide by this decision and submit to the people's choice of a man who would occupy the presi dency until the autumn of 1916. Federals Reoccupy Towns. The cities of Montemorelos and Cad erieta .Tiniinez and the town of General Teran to the southeast of Monterey, in the state of Nuevo Leon, all of which were taken by the rebels after they had been repulsed by the fede ral garrison of Monterey, were re-oc cupied yesterday by federal troops, ac cording to a report sent today to the minister of the interior by Governor Botello of Nuevo Leon. Much damage was done by the rebels while the towns were in their hands, as they burned and looted indiscriminately. Chester Leaves Tonight. Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 6. The scout cruiser Chester, under hurry or ders to prepare to sail from Vera Cruz, completed loading supplies today and will be ready to leave the Philadelphia yard tonight or early tomorrow. Re ports that Lattleships at the yard were being prepared for Bailing were" denied by Captain Benson, command ant of the yard. Halt Attack on Pledras Negras, and Weeks, the resolution was regard ed by some as the basis of a com promise belween the White House and the senators in control on the committee. The provision in the house bill to compel national banks to subscribe 10 per cent of their capital to the new system, under penalty of losing their charters, would be eliminated. If after G days the public had not subscribed all the capital, the banks entering the system would be required to take up the remaining stock. That was one of the proposals of the Vanderlip plan. Control of the regional banks waB settled by a compromise resolution offered by Senator Weeks, providing that each regional bank have nine directors, five to be selected by the government federal reserve board and four by the banks. Under the house bill, six of the nine would be chosen by the banks. The action today is about to have cleared the way for an agreement in the committee and may hasten prog ress of the bill. President Wilson has been conduct ing informal conferences with Demo cratic senators over the currency sit uation and many are urging a party conference, not necessarily in the sense of a caucus but as a movement to make the Democratic party sponsor for the bill in the form the adminis tration wants it shaped. . Talk of a caucus to take the bill out of the hands of the committee was re vived after the administration forces were outvoted today. , Senate leaders sent out notices to all Democratic ab sentees urging them to return at once.

Chihuahua is Attacked. El Paso, Texas, Nov. 6. Advices from Chihuahua received in Juarez and El Paso today say Pancho Villa, with a constitutionalist force esti mated at C000 men, began an attack upon Chihuahua City at 10 o'clock lust night, Efforts were made in Juarez today to prevent the federal garrison there from learning of the beginning of hos tilities, as the commanders admit that the men ra ght not be depended upon if ordered to Chihuahua to reinforce the garrison there. Chihuahua is said to be well defend ed, with a number of pieces of heavy artillery and a garrison of several thousand men. M. E. Diebold, Inspector of Mexican consulates, says he has advices di rect from Chihuahua this afternoon stating that the federal garrison at Chihuahua has repulsed the rebel at tuck by Pancho Villa's army. Die- bold says the rebels, after skirmishing yesterday afternoon made a night at tack, which was repulsed, and that cial measures of this country must be adjusted within a short time or a seri ous situation would result. "If the currency measure is not (properly amended and we get away from the goal which is now in sight," he said, "we will confront very diffi cult conditions. Partisanship at this time time is out of place. What, we need is good citizenship. I think a great mistake is being made, especial ly in the east. That is, maintaining the attitude that if we can't get what we want in currency legislation, we would rather have no change. The pending bill has so much good in It that to say it is all bad is not states manship but partisanship. Mr. Schiffs speech was an impromp tu one, made after A.
