INTEREST CENTERS ON THE
REcSELS WHO CONTROL TAMPICO
Washington, May 15. While two of
the South American envoys were on
their way today to Niagara Falls,
where they will complete arrange
mennts for peace negotiations and
with the third mediator and the
American mission preparing to leave
here tomorrow, immediate interest in
the Mexican situation centered in the
Constitutionalists' administration of
their new rrize the port of Tampico
and plans for their campaign against
Saltillo and San Luis Potosi.
Reports to the navy department
early today from Rear Admiral Mayo
stated that General Gonzales, the Car
ranza commander at TampL-o, had as
sured United States Consul Miller that
complete protection would be given to
American and other foreign property
about the seaport, including the immense-
oil interests there.
News that the federal mission was
speeding northward today from Key
Wft relieved all anxiety over the
possibility that the Mexican delegates
would not reach Niagara Falls in time
for the beginning of the conference.
First Intimations of the scope of
their authority were rcveale-d in a
statement by Senor Rodriguez, spokes
man for the party, who declared:
"We have full power to act; we car
ry no formula, and we shall decide
according to our consciences, always
bearing In mind the national honor."
That applied, however, to issues be
tween the Huerta government and the
United States. The Mexican dele- J
rates. Sf nor Rodriguez said, would 1
deal only with external issues of the j
situation because of the attitude of
Carranza that an attempt to compose
'nternal affairs in Mexico would he
bevond the bounds of diplomatic ac
tivity. Details of the final assault on Tara
pico, after months of siege. which
came through slowly today, indicated
that reinforcements of artillery en
' bled General Gonzales to drive the
Federal arunboats from their positions,
'hen under cover of fir 8 ? from the
larsre guns, the Constitutionalists
charged into the town, the conflict
ending with desperate fiarhTir.g in the- ;
plaza. Eightnig interrupted w'reless j
f ommunication between Rear Admiral j
Mayo at Tampico and the fleet at Vera
Cruz and delayed detailed reports of I
the end of the siege. News that I
reached northern points by fn over
land wire stated General Gonzales
mentioned a "bloody engagement."
The fate of the Federals who fled
from Tompieo was in doubt today.
In some quarters belief was expressed
that thev wouold be cut to pieces by
intercepting Constitutionalistsi long
before they could reach th-dr own
l'nes south of San Luis Potosi. Fears
that thev might attempt reprisals by
setting tire to the huge oil tanks in
land fro mthe port were not realized.
Evidently they were moving hurriedly
in the hope of reaching a haven.
Order rapidly is Veing restored in

Pear Admiral Mavo with the Des !

TEN KILLED Ai
Direct Cause of Catastraphe
In Detroit May Xever be
Known, But Report Was
That Gasoline Was Re
sponsible for the Accident
BY ASSOCIATKO PRESS.
Detroit. Mich.. May 1T. Ten men
were killed, two other bodies were
said to be still buried in the wreckage,
another man was dying and three
more were thought to be fatally in
jured, as the result of an explosion
which wrecked the plant of the Mexi
can Crude Rubber Company in the
western part of the city today. The
direct cause of the explosion m;y
never be known. It was reported gas
oline was re.-iponsible for the aeident.
Latef it was said sulphuric acid prob
ably wa. the cause. The coroner
shared the later opinion and said he
based his belief on the statements of
others who were acquainted with the
processes of rubber manufacturing
used in the plant.
Ii was believed the explosion oc
curred in a department where the
molten rubber was being prepared.
There were several wo.kmen in this
department but as far as could be
learned this afternoon none escap-H.
The officials of the company refused
to give out any statement.
Most of the victims were skilled
mechanics. One body was blown
through the building. Three others
were burned beyond recognition.
Three men were removed to a hospital
and physicians said they did not ex
pect they would survive. Dozens of
windows in buildings near the rubber
company's plant were shattered.
Several causes for the explosion
were assigned, but survivors said a
vat containing a large quantity of t
molten rubber exploded. Oilieials of
the company oeclined to issue a state
ment until they had conducted an in
vestigation. The plant, a on-story
eoncrete building in West Detroit, was
destroyed. Plying debris riddled ad
joining buildings and concrete Mocks
weighing several pounds were found
more than two blocks from the scene
of the explosion.
The factory of a motor car eompanv

i cern was nao'.y uamagea. .mhiovu in

The explosion wa witnessed by
scores of pedestrians and narrow es

police he heard a roar; the factory

two of vvhi -h 'melted away." The
third, he s.tid. Fhot high into the air
and broke into fragments.
None of the first five bodies re
moved from the debris was identified
before being taken to the morgue.
Several hoi-rs after the accident all
of the employes could not be ac
counted for. and this led to reports
that possibly fourteen had been killed.
Officials of the company thought, how
ever, that some of the missing men
would be located at their homes.
