Wanhinpton, June 26.—A demand for
the immediate release of the American
troopers taken prisoner at ('arrival,
coupled with a stern notification that
the Cntteil States expects an early
statement of the purposes of the Car
rnn/.u government, was telegraphed to
Mexico City by Secretary l.ansing.
The note discloses that the stste de

Speeding Up Mobilization.
The war department is making
every effort to speed up mobilization
of the national guard. A few compa
nies have been mustered in. In twen
ty hours, probably, a substantial force
will be en route to the border to back
up Cicnenl I'unston's line.
It may be four or five days, how
ever, before war department officials
would feel safe in withdrawing regu
