The statement, which was is sued by Mr Rabasa was a paraphrase of a memorandum given to the Amer ican delegates last Friday.. Rabasa Memorandum Answered. It was made known that the Amer ican delegation answered almost im mediately the memorandum received from Mr. Rabasa. The response was t considered by the American delegates as an adequate defense of the posi tion they had assumed toward the establishment of a new provisional government. It is said to declare that the Mexican delegation had not 4 taken into consideration the fact that the United States had no candidate for permanent president of Mexico 0 and that under no circumstances would the American government be B party to any influence on the elect II tlons of any country. Its preference for a constitutionalist for provisional president was due wholly to the con n viction that a man from that party I must be taken in order to Insure the disarmament of all factions that oth erwise would menace the new Mexi can government if B man not satis factorv to the constitutionalists J should be installed in place of Huerta.
