The American government already has begun representations to the Rebels in behalf of the Tampico Oil men. They want protection for the operatives. The United States war whips have returned Into Panuco river and anchored before the town. The Mexican Federal warships are Ftationed at the mouth of tae river.

The conference was arranged for yesterday, but could not be held on account of heavy seas. It was reported here today that an understanding had been reached be tween United States officials and Con stitutionalist leaders whereby all the operatives of the various oil wells around Tampico could resume work at once under a guaranty of protection from the Constitutionalist generals. - Information to this effect also was j communicated to representatives ofj all foreign governments having inter- j ests In the Tampico vicinity.
