Plans to Quit Post in Favor of
New Minister of Foreign
1 New Minister to Arrange
Terms of Peace Which Will
Be Virtual Surrender.
I Washington. July 1 1. Information
was received from Mexico City by
diplomats here today saying General
Huerta would resign within two or
three days in favor of Francis Car
bajal. newly appointed minister of
foreign affairs
It was learned that the appoint
mpnt of Carbajal, who took office
yesterday Is part of a general pro
gram by which It is hoped to make
peace with the constitutionalists.
The Huerta delegates to the Niaga
ra conference are understood to have
been awaiting this move for several
days. Carbajal has long been a
member of the supreme court of Mex
ico and on May 31 last was elected
chief Justice.
To Treat With Csrranza
Realising that the constitutionalist
generals would disapprove the plan
for peace conferences with represen
tatives of General Huerta, as pro
posed by the mediators because they
do not wish to have dealing? in any
form with Huerta, the suggestion was I
made to thf Huerta group that an
other man be placed in power with j
whom he constitutionalists might
feel disposed to treat
It is believed here that Carbajal
will endeavor to arrange terms of
peace which would be virtually terms
of surrender.

Commission Holds Storstad to
Blame for Loss of Em
press of Ireland.
Quebec, July 11. The collier Stor
stad Is held to blame for the Em
press of Ireland disaster, in the find
ings of the wreck commission, hand
ed down today The commission holds
that the disaster was due to the Stor
ataci t change of course ordered by
the third officer without instructions
from the first officer, who was In
charge of the collier at the time
The Empress was 6unk in the St.
Lawrence on May 29 with a loss of
more than 1000 lives.
The inquiry into the disaster was
beguti in Quebec on June 16 by a com
mlsion composed of Lord Merzy. for
merly presiding justice of the British
AsimlraHu rnnrt: Sir Adoluho Rou-
thier of Quebec, and Chief Justice
McLeod of New Brunswick.
The commissioners were assisted
in their work by Commander F W
( 'a borne of the British Royal Naval
reserve; Professor .lohn Welsh of
New Castle, England, Captain De
mer6 of the wreck commissioner and
Wreck Engineer Commander Howe of
the Canadian naval service. Comman
der Caborne and Professor Welsh
were nominated by the British board
of trade Lord Mersey also presi
dent over the inquiry into the Titanic
The col'.fer s third officer found re
sponsible is Alfred Tuftenes He was
on the bridge when the crash came
and the report holds that "he was
wrong and negligent In keeping the
navigation of the vessel In his own
hands and falling to call the captain
when he saw the fog coming on "
The report says the disaster was not
due to any special characteristics of
the St. Lawrence. It was a disaster
which might have occurred In nny
river in similar circuinstam :ea
Conflict In Testimony
The report notes a radical conflict
In the testimony of officers of the
Empress and of the Storstad. Tho
witnesses from the Storstad, reads
the report, "say they were approach

those irom I he Empress say they

clusions almost on events spoken of
by the witnesses in order to arrive
at the solution
"We have come to the conclusion
that Mr Tuftenes wa- mistaken i
he supposed there was any intention
on the part of the Empress to pas
port to port, or that she. In fact, by
her lights manifested the intentior
of doing so; but It appears to us to bf
a mistake which could have been ot
no consequences if the ships had sub

"There is In our opinion no ground
for saying that the course of the Em
press of Ireland was ever changed in
the sense that the wheel was wilfully

another explanation was propounded,
namely, that the vessel changed her

alterations of her wheel, but in con
sequence of some uncontrollable
