Mexico City, July 15. Official an nouncement is made that President Huerta sent his resignation to Congress at 4 o'clock this afternoon. Francisco Carbajal, the Foreign Min ister, will immediately take the oath of office. President Huerta, in resignation, declared that he is "actu ated by the highest motives of patriot ism and that he complies with the su preme duty to his country." Abdication by President Huerta has been anticipated for some time. Mem bers of his family and close friends had already departed from Mexico City. While these developments were in progress at the national capital, the rebel forces continued to plan for an active advance against Mexico City, and Geq. Carranza was reported to be con sidering taking active leadership in the field, and thus be the commander-in- chief for what appears will be a final assault on the capital. Man Disappears. Friends and relatives of George Weh- man are very much alarmed about his sudden disappearance. He was last seen in this city last Saturday night about 10 o'clock. He was enjoying his usual good health and had spent the day working for Se mones & Son. He had rooms at Mrs. Dunn's residence in the eastern portion of town and was present for supper as usual. ' Friends missed him Sunday and in quiry failed to reveal his whereabouts. A reward baa been offered and a general search of the city and surrounding ter ritory has been conducted for some days. Messages to friends and - relatives in other towns have revealed nothing and the sudden departure remains a mystery. Officers and friends are working day and night and it is thought something will be learned in a short while.. He was about 50 years of age, light hair, blue eyes, with sandy mustache. ' Trade Week. At a meeting of the Business Men's Club Tuesday night it was decided to have a general trade week some time in the near future, committee to formulate plans to be appointed later. How's This?
