At the present rate it is believed when this session dually adjourn:, the record for words will have reached a mark that no sin -flooding OQngTSSS can hope to email, for which, mam veteran observers of - ton sessional affairs say. the country should be devoutly thankful. The biuh water mark for talk previous to the present session was established dur ing the tirst session of the fifty-llist Congress, At thai session the mem bers of Congress talked to an extent that tilled 1 1 .V 1 7 paues of The COO groOOtOltal Record. This was believed to establish it ic ord for words that Would never be SSI eeded. Hut the present session alieadv OSS made the record of the fifty-first ii 11 -Kress look almost diminutive.

NEW REGIME IN MEXICO WILL DE RECOGNIZED IF THERE IS PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER If Carranza Insists on Forcible Entry Into Mexico City Recognition Will Be Deferred by U. S. AMERICAN FORCES WILL REMAIN AT VERA CRUZ; HUERTA FLEES TO COAST Washington, July i.The Pnlted States has institu ted the Anicri an Consul Silliman at Salt ill., to inform I'arranza. if he arrives at a peaceful agreement with the Car ha Jul govern ment for a transfer of power at Mexi' ,, t'ity, that recognition will be extendi.! the resultant administration. Should I'arranza refuse to complete the settlement of the international ci.n Jct b diplomatic means, and insist Og it tsfOlblg entry into Mexico Pity, reeogriition will be deferred until the legal lection. The American fgffOOS will not be withdrawn from Vera Cruz until a gov ernment is recognized. This determin ation was reached by Wilson and Hryan after the viewpoint of the South American mediators was laid before them. Under ths terms of the protocols .-igned at Niagara Palls ths United States. Argentina. Hrazil and Phil on reeorti as promising recogni tion to a government set up by any agreement between the two Mexican ructions. To vitulize that protocol the Washington government and mediators are now bending their efforts. I'espite the resignation of Huerta the president will continue hi.s watch ful waiting policy until the Mexican situation Is more elaritled. The presi dent is understood to have no ohjec uon to i arnajai, SSCspl that he has derived his power from Huert,,. Msg is willing to accept him if the Constitu tionalists agree upon him as provision al president until an election can be held. The expectation of the administra tion is arrangements will be made for a peaceful entry or the rebels into Mexic,, i i t v . Wilson believ es other na tions will not recognize any new gov ernment until the United States has indicated its attitude. While house of ficials are confident the Constitution alists will he temperate in their acts when thev safer htextoa City, Thej be lieve there is no danger or wholesale killing or looting. Karly ofllcial dispatches threw go light on the destination of Huerta and his party, but it is believed he is head ed for Puerto, Mexico. Should Huer tas escort t ike him to Vera Cruz the Mexican soldiers probably would be interned the same as other fed. ra s mi the border. The American army would not turn them back to be" exe cuted by the Constitutionalists out side Vera Crns. Funston. in a dispatch today, ex press.,! the belief that lg coiise-iuonce of lluerta's rsslgnsllun, there would oe defections from the federal troops guarding the railroad and that the de serters would come to Vera Cruz. A rding to the war department no effort will be gangs to keep such sol diers out of Vera Crag. At tirst it wns the idea they ahonld be Interned, but later it was decided they would be permitted to conn, provided they lav ih iw n t heir arms. Mexico City Populace Calm. Mexico City, July 16.

In his m. ssage com eying his resignation. Huerta made bitter reference to the Pnited State. The designation of Carbajal for pro vision.-!' president was well received throughout the republic-, according to i. p..rts. The fact he is a civilian han won the sympathies of the Mexican people, who appear tired of a mili tary dictatorship. Although almost all of the troops of the garrison of Mexico city left with Huerta last night complete quiet prevails. Gen eral J..se Velaseo has been sworn tn OS minister of war. Secretary Garrison has ordered offi cers on the border to refrain from participating in any meetings or con fi ronoss with Mexican officers of any faction. Huerta on Special Train.
