STATE ITS POLICY. ..., ..nnri ntnmP I BRYAN SCORES PAPERS FOR FALSE REPORTS t ; W ashiiiglon, D. C.j Nov. 22. Kear Admiral rletcher cabled today that j lue battleship New Hampshire had j lett Tuxpam to return to Vera Cruz, j Taken in connection with the. pledge J from constitutional General Aguilar, Hint his men would not molest foreign : property, the movement was regarded as evidence that the restoration of order was complete between Tuxpam and Tampico. The Madero refugees were transferred late last night to the Chester from the battle ship Rhode Island, and the Chester sailed for Havana. 'With a full realization that there Drobably can be no Immediate deve - . ... . 1 lopinent m a diplomatic sense, ieiiu - ing a clearing of the tangle in which the Mexican congress lias involved it self, interest is now centered in the naval situation on the gulf coast. The approach of two British cruisers was communicated to the state department through the British embassy without eliciting any expressions of disap proval and that is taken as another ev idence that the United States and Great Britain are acting In harmony as to naval forces to protect foreign interests. It is pointed out in naval circles that with German and French warships in the same waters, there ould be no objection to the presence of British ships. Unofficial advices from the government agents in the sections of Mexico where the consti tutionalists are operating, suggest a revival of a plan to seek recognition from the United iStates for a de facto government, claiming jurisdiction by; right of possession; the establish ment -of a capital and of an organized administration in all that part of Mex ico iortti 6f a llr.f drawn about-flue west from Tuxpam or Tampico. Secretary Bryan issued this state ment relative to Mexico City dis patches about the movement of British warships to Mexico: "The statement published this morn ing to the effect that the state depart ment protested against the action of Great Britain in sending war vessels to Mexican waters is absolutely false. And in denying the statement I desire to add a condemnation of statements of that kind without taking time to in quire into their truth or falsity. A denial cannot reach all who read the statement nor can it prevent the discussion and editorial comments that are predicated on the false state mont Snrplv in international affairs there ought to be a patriotic desire to j promote friendly relations, ana inese cannot be promoted by the reckless publication of false statements in re gard to the acts of government offi cials."

ERALS AR ON JUAREZ THE ADVANCE GUARD IS WITHIN 32 MILES OF THE BORDER CITY, AND VILLA SENDS OUT REBEL TROOPS TO MEET THEM.-BATTLE EX PECTED THIS AFTERNOON. VILLA CLAIMS TO HAVE 7,000 MEN AT JUAREZ El Paso, Texas, Nov. 22. Federals are within thirty-two miles of Juarez, according to the rebels now holding Hit border .Mexican town and Paneho Villa and WW men have gone out to meet and light them. This statement was made at 10: JO this morning in Juarez to an Associat ed Press representative 'by General Jcse Rodriguez, one of Villa's princt rod lieutenants. He declared that Villa and his chief of staff, Juan N. j Medina, had left an hour before for the south, after receiving reliable lu fnrmation that the federals had reach ed Samalayuca, thirty-two miles be low Juarez. General Rodriguez declared that 3000 additonal men were being prepar i ed and would go south just as soon as ihpv could be loaded on the trams. He said Villa and Medina took two train leads of men and that there were trains pnnueh to convey the other 3000 men as soon as the engines could be fired up. The two trains tnat vnia took out would return for re inforce- ments in a short time, he declared. Prenaratlons had been made for a I i,t narnrte. in Juarez this morumg in . .i..u...in f n,o vintnrv nf the rebels nr Hip federals last Saturday, but the preparations were called off when the definite news caine of the near ap proach of the federals. Why the federals should have got so close to Juarez before Villa learned o:' it. is a mystery, if Villa has as many men scattered souih of Juarez a.i he has claimed. He has always said that he had 2000 men outside the city scattered along the Mexican Cen tral railroad. Evidently these men were not there or Villa would have bt en' advised sooner of the approach ot the federals. Villa claimed yesterday that he had 7000 men In Juarez. Just how near this figure was correct is known only ti Villa and his chief lieutenants. The. town was literally alive with rebel soldiers: every street and every house, it seemed, was full of men. All ivprn heine fitted out with shoes and new blue overalls and jumpers. Some were getting suits. Villa gave u oui on his arrival in Juarez that he had destroyed the Mexican Central as he came to Juarez and that the federal could not follow. One of his staff of ficers declared today that the road had only been torn up in places and that the federals could easily repair it, "We hope they do repair it and come after us," said the officer, "for if they dou't come after us we will have to go after them and we would rather meet them in the open than attack them in Chihuahua again." Villa carried considerable artillery with him this morning when he left Juarez, Villa returned to Juarez at 11 o'clock after having distributed his 1000 men along the railroad Imme diately south of Juarez and began su pervising the entraining of the other troops. He said he did not lntena iu advance today to Samalayuca to meet the federals there, but expected to concentrate his men about 10 miles south of Juarez to give battle to the federals there when they should come closer. Fighting is reported to have already commenced between Villa's advance guard and the federal advance guard. Villa expects to fight the federals about 15 miles out and believes the battle will be on by 5 o'clock. The ff deral advance is said to be followed by large reinforcements, that should make the two commands about equal when they meet. The rebels sent an automobile ma chine gun platoon to the front this mnrnine. consisting of five motor cars each carrvine four rapid fire guns and three men. Villa's chauffeur "Frenchy" was in command. Practically all the rebel army ex cept the 1500 to remain behind to gar- rison Juarez, nau kh tc uu.u. by 2:30 this atiernoou. v u.a w., Villa went .l.u .1. Heavy skirmishing was reported between the advance guards of tne . f , .i.i, Thpv were distant between 15 and 20 miles south of Juarez. Carranza Makes Merry. Magdalena, Sonora, Mex., Nov. 22. With a hard campaign along the west coast awaiting him. General Venustl ano Carranza, the Mexican constitu tionalist chief, prolonged today his stay in this town, the center of an agricultural district and apparently unconcerned with either military or diplomatic matters. Carranza will entertain tonight with a dance for the townspeople and offi cers of his staff.

IS YIELDING HUERTA IS SOON TO BE RECOGNIZED, ACCORDING TO REPORTS PUB LISHED AT MEXICO CITY.-GREAT REJOICING FOLLOWS THE RECEIPT OF THIS REPORT. THE HALE-CARRANZA EPISODE IS THE CAUSE .Mexico City, Mex., Nov. 22. The .Mexican morning newspapers under government domination published on their front pages today long articles regarding the alleged Intention of the United States government to recog nize Provisional President Huerta in the near future. El Independiente had a seven column headline which read: "Huerta will be recognized by the American government. "The special envoy of President Wil son able to prove anarchy was reign ing in the camp of the rebels of the north." El Diario similarly displays an item stating that Secretary of State Bryan had already signed a communication recognizing Huerta. The same news paper quotes Querido Moheno, the Mexican foreign minister as saying he has "no official knowledge" of the fact, but that from private sources he has received "very optimistic news and has hopes of an early ad justment" of the difficulties between Mexico and the United States. El Indenendiente. at great length. relates that the failure of the confer ence between William Bayard Hale and Carranza, the constitutionalist leader, was due to the conviction of President Wilson and Secretary of State Bryan, that the rebel chief could not give assurances for the safety of the lives and property and foreign ers. The newspaper continues: "President Wilson and Secretary ot State nrvan. after listening attentive ly to the representation ot their en voy, decided Provisional President Huerta was the only man cniV. ..j iciv uays." The foundation for the optimism of the Mexican press appears to be cer tain cablegrams received here by for eign business men, expressing the horror felt by President Wilson at the killing of federal prisoners, when the rebels took Juarez. These cablegrams were at first erroneously translated as referring to the killing of American army men there. The Imparcial dis played the story yesterday and it was copied by the afternoon papers. It caused an unmistakable atmosphere of optimism in the national palace, where the news appeared to be fully credited. Rebels now control a district In which are located some of the camps ot the Pearson syndicate in tne Tux- j pam (listrjct o( the gtate of Vera Cruz, ,,, i.,i,i p Tn,.n-n n including the island of Ptreros, of I which Thomas Coleman, an Ameri- j can, is alleged to have been dlsposses- j sed and regarding which Charge ' O'Shaughnessy is treating with the ; Mexican foreign office.
