Since then General Villa, on rumerous occasions, has signified a desire to reach an accord with those who are opposing him, even express ing a willingness to entirely eliminate himself from the situation should occa \ sioT. seem so to demand. | “General Villa certainly will give the most serious, attentive and practical consideration to any friendly sugges tion reaching him from President Wil son. whose unselfishness of purpose he well understands and fully apple MAKES DEPARTURE IN U.

It ; was decided on after several meetings of the President and his cabinet and a study of the reports of Duval West, who Investigated conditions In Mexico. Foreign nations have been taken Into the confidence of the United States and European diplomatists who would express I themselves Indicated their approval of the .plan. In South American circles. It was declared today's statement was a logical l development of the mediation donferen** at Niagara Falls when the United States, v'ith Argentina, Brazil and Chile, signed a protocol agreeing to recognize the gov ernment set up by agreement of the fac tions.

FAMOUS BRITISH OFFICER WOUNDED London, June 3.—(2:09 a. m.)—The latest casualty list names as wounded Brigadier General Sir Philip Chetwode. General Chetwode was the first officer to he mentioned for distinguished service in the dispatches of Field Marshal Sir John French in the present war. •••••••»“•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• merit meant by lending “its active moral support to some man or group of men, If such may be found, In An effort to ignore, if they cannot united. £he war ring factions of the country.” 'in high official quarters It was ex plained that the United States hitherto had maintained neutrality as between the factions, but now was preparing to choose between them or to give its support to those elements in the existing factions which gave most promise of success. Ail embargo on arms and the cutting off of other means of support in the I’nited States would be put into operation to as sist the chosen elements as against those which ignored the American goverpment’3 demand for peace. To Hark Back to Madero While details of the government’s policy p.re not yet available, it was said on good authority that it was intended to restore constitutional government in Mexico after the factions had agreed on their man foi provisional president by first according recognition to Vasques Tagle or some of the other members of the cabinet of the late President Madero, entitled to succes sion under the Mexican laws. The minis ter so recognized would be expected to appoint to the cabinet the man chosen to head the new government in whose favor he would then resign. Ernesto Madero and Manuel Bonilla also were members of the Madero cabinet, but Vasquez Tagle, minister of Justice, was the only one who did not present his resignation. The details of a constitutional succes sion, however, it is understood, will not be given attention until there is an agree ment on the new provisional President end his cabinet. An effort is to be made to get men for the portfolios who repre sent various branches of Mexican politic s, the majority being committed to a gov ernment based on liberal principles and 1 lodged to religious freedom and agrarian and educational reforms. The effect of the Presdent’s statement in Mexican quarters wTas varied. General Villa's representative here, Enrique IJor ente, promptly Issued a statement saying the convention government had tried to put into efTect the very ideas set forth by the President and was ready to co operate with opposing factions. The Car ranza agency wras silent, but it was pre dicted that General Carranza would en deavor to demonstrate by a quick cam paign on Mexico City that he could domi nate all other factions In a military way and thereby command the recognition of foreign governments. Representatives here of exiled Mexi cans, driven from their country by the constitutionalists, expressed their approval of the President’s plan, but doubted whether Villa and Carranza and Zapata, elements could reach an agreement. The possibility of another revolutionary move ment to take under Its standard the besr elements in the Villa and Carranza rank* was discussed. What Villa Thinks El Paso, Tex., June 2.—Francisco Mc Manus, Villa consul at El Paso, made the following statement relative to Pres ident Wilson's note: “Except to emphatically state that I do not In any way recognise the right of the United Stajes to Interfere in the domestic affairs of Mexico, I have no statement at thla time, regarding the Wilson note. "I can add, however, that foreigners and Mexicans alike who have gone about their legitimate pursuits in ter ritory controlled by General Villa have received protection.” Huerta’s Opinion New York. June 2.—Gen. Vtctorlano Huerta, former provisional President of Mexico, after he had been shown Presi dent Wilson's note regarding the situa tion in Jjexlco today through A. Z. Rct ner, In whose offices at No. 61 Broadway V- . i he makes his headquarters, issued the following signed statement: "As a foreigner, enjoying the hospi tality of a foreign country, I should not criticize nor even discuss state ments of the government or officers of the foreign country I live in. But I may say this: “Any foreign country that is sincere and honest in its endeavor to help our nation would commit the biggest blun der by giving its moral support or as sistance to any person or factions. “Such actions, instead of bringing th i results desired, would result In the opposite direction. “The Mexican nation as a whole will never accept any such party, even if it would only be suspected that that party received any help from a for eign country. "Our people will never stand for a.iy government inspired by foreJ^iers, no matter how humanitarian or noble the motives of such foreign nation ap pear to be." Regarded as Unfortunate New Orleans, June 2.—Herlberto Kar roo, widely known Mexican attorney and founder of the Mexican democratic parly, who recently came to New or Ioann on a special mission for General Cunanza, in a statement tonight com menting on the warning of Presldi n: Wilson said he considered the issuance of the note "very unfortunate." Mr. Barron declared It would complicate the Mexican situation by encouraging "reactionaries and conspirators" and that It might delay restoration of pea. c. Jesus Acuna, governor of the state of Coahuila, now here en route to Vera Cruz, said: "T regret that President Wilson should have felt It necessary to inter fere In the Internal affairs of Mexico at a time when the constitutionalist forces are on the eve of reoccupylng Mexico City and establishing there a government which will merit the rec ognition of the United States and othc. govirnments." Approves President’s Course San Antonio. June 3.—Arturo M. Elias, Mexican consul general in Texas during tho Huertft regime, and a leader in the peace movement recently inaugurated by political refugees, here tonight, issued a statement approving President Wilson’s Mexican note. “It is especially gratifying to know that President Wilson may give his sup port to the real patriotic and intelligent Mexicans in an effort to restore their na tive land to its former glory,” Elias said. “Time has proved that neither Carranza nor Villa can settle Mexico’s troubles and the day is rapidly drawing near when the men who were the backbone of the nation in its day of prosperity will have to once more take up the task of building a country. With but few exceptions these men now are political refugees in the United States.” Villa and Carranza representatives here refused to discuss the note. Declines Comment on Wilson Warning Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, June 2.- Jose Maytorena, governor and Villa chief In Sonora, declined today to commert on the warning of President Wilson until he had received an official copy of the text. Maytorena denied, however, there was any suffering among the population o,* the territory considered under his control.
