M E ET WEDNESDAY Vengance for Private Parks' Death Promised Rebels Closing in on Saltillo. t'.y Cnlted Press. WASHINGTON, D. C. May IS. If Huerta's commissioners have been ghen absolute power to consider plans, even to those considering his elimination, then the progress of me diation will be speedy. If. however, they have to report everything back to Huerta, otliclals concede that the discussion will be lenthy and perhaps futile. It is believed that the mediators are ready to discuss the entire situation at once. Preparations at Niagara Falls for the mediation conference are continuing and the American commissioners are ready to leave for there. The session will convene Wednesday. Huerta's secretary of foreigu af fairs promised to punish the murder ers of private Parks if it is shown that he was killed within the Federal lines at Vera Cruz, according to a re port of the Brazilian minister to the Slate Department. Another cargo of German ammuni tion is due to arrive at Puerto, Mex ico today on the German liner, Bava ria.

A general assault on Saltillo and lighting along the whole constitu tionalist line will probably begin to night or tomorrow. Reconnoiteriug expeditions liad almost hourly en counters all last night.
