If John Lind, special en voy representing President Wilson, returned' to Mexico City at the request of General Huerta, his early actions to day did not indicate it. Lind, with Captain Burnside, military aide of the Vera Cruz consulate, arrived here today and went at once to the same hotel where Lind had quarters during his first stay in th capital. Nelson O'Shaughnessy, American charge d'affaires, called on Lind immediately and they were, in conference several hours. Lind refused to rrjake any state ment, but he did not visit the national palace nor did he receive any Mexican officials. It is conjectured here that Lind was sent back' to Mex ico City by theState Department to back up O'Shaifgh nessy in the "verbal representations" he is making to Huerta in an effort to persuade the dictator to resign.

Secretary Bryan admitted that the Mexico situation had been discussed "among other things," but added: "I want It understood that we have no announcements to make, and that I cannot answer any questions." Other members were equally non committal.

Officials here claim ignorance of the trip, and will only say that Mr. Lind is privileged tq use his discretion whenever he thinks It necessary to move from place to place.

On high authority It Is learned he has come to doubt the wisdom of his original policy In so far as shutting off arms from the Constitutionalists Is concerned. Secretary Bryan declared the nations or the world would never consent to see this country open the way to allow the Constitutionalists to have arms. A sharp exchange resulted between Bryan and one oi more of the comm'ttee.
