sett Moore 8ay Government Ha
No Intention of Warning Nation
to Keep Hand Off.

llx Dial received a "request" from
the, Mexican government to proceed at
once to the federal capital.
CoL Manuel Vidaurrazaga, secretary
to the Mexican minister of war. ar
rived here on a special train with the
invitation, which practically was an
order for Dias to accompany him to
Mexico City.
General Dias did not decide Imme
diately .to obey, and no effort was

been sent to United State war ves
sels in Mexican waters during the
past week.
Washington Calm Down.
The official excitement led to wild
rumor of war with Mexico and a
rupture of friendly relation with oth
er foreign powers calmed down here
as the result of General Huerta's ac
tion in declaring that he would not
accept the presidency of Mexico at
the election, and the release of tbe
liner Morro Castle at Vera Cruz.

to the administration that President
Wilson went to Philadelphia and par

president would cancel his Mobile en

was no reason for taking any such ac
tion in view of tbe present situa
