Francisco Villa, commander-in-chief of the military forces of the Gu tierrez faction in Mexico, has consented to resign his command and leave Mexico in order that a peaceful settlement of the republic's internal difficulties may be effected. This information came today in a statement Provisional President Eulalio Gutierrez telegraphed to Enrique C. Llorente, diplomatic agent of the Aguas Calientes convention in Washington. Gutierrez said he had personally placed before Villa the proposition of Gen. Venustiano Carranza that Villa expatriate himself, and the northern leader replied that he was willing to sacrifice all if it meant peace for Mexico. Carranza had telegraphed Gutierrez direct that if Villa fulfilled these conditions he (Carranza) would immediately transfer his government to Gutierrez and would also leave Mexico.
