May —lutimation o» the attitude of the Huer.a delegate to the mediation conier-nce to be held at Niagara Falls \Vedr.e?day. was ob tained from persons said to be in touch with the envo -s. The Mexi cans refused to talk oi their plans be fore their departure. Three are Optimistic. That the three were optimistic re garding the chances for mediation was learned from quarters in close touch •with thc-m. They have little idea how long the arrangement of a settlement •will keep them at Niagara. Falls, it they are confident their trip will no: have been in vain. The Mexican delegates are said to realize that the present administra tion in Mexico City is fast crumbling and that the choice oi some one to succeed Huerta is inevitable. After Huerta, What? But conceding the retirement ot Huerta. the delegates are satu to be most interested in the vital question ot what is to follow, what guarantees are ta be obtained against the possible confiscation oi property by the invad ing Constitutionalists. protection against conditions of anarchy, and what kind of government will be sta ble and wiii obtain world-wide recog nition. On the other hand, those close to President Wilson and Secretary Bry an say that the question to be mediat ed is no longer the failure o: Huerta to salute the fiag or the offenses com mitted against the dignity of the Unit ed States, but the broad question of pacifying Mexico. This* *ho know the broad-minded view o: the Wash ington administration declare the Am erican troops will not be withdrawn from Vera Cruz until a stable cov-rc nient is established or is ir. siiht in ilexico City.
