NOTE IS READY FOR PRESENTATION ' First Message of State Department at . Washington To the Huerta Gov eminent in Mexico. Mexico City, Aug. 12. The message of the state department at Washington which John Land, the personal represent ative of President Wulson, has for Presi dent Huerta is ready for presentation. Nelson O'Shaughnessy, the American charge d'affaires, took steps yesterday to ascertain if the Mexican government would receive the communication. That it will do so there is little doubt, since it has never expressed unwillingness to accept embassy communications and the receipt oi mis message wouia noi in volve the reception of Mr. Lind or Dr, WtiJIiam Bayard Hale, All persons concerned in the present tion of the statement of the attitude of the United States government to. ward Mexico are reticent as to its ehar cter but there is reason to believe that the first note, if it is accented, will be followed by at least one other and that the full import of Washington's sugges tion or demands will be left for a 'still later stage. Mexican officials are uncommunicative I regarding the special mission of Mr. Lind but unofficially their attitude of non- looranliaBce with any plan of interfer enee on the part of the United States government has not been altered. Mr. Lind and Dr. Hale were in close conference for several hours yesterday 'The most of Mr. Lind'i time, however, was epent at his hotel chiefly in order ''that he might be near Mrs. Lind, who is confined to her room by a slight M !ness. The plan to lodge Mr. and Mrs. fLind at the embassy was abandoned, as the building is practically dismantled. Mr. O'Shaughnessv. acting under in . afmctinna nf Kenretftrv of State Brvan last night delivered a note to the for eign office expressing the appreciation of the United States for the courtesies thus far shown to Mr. Lind. N. A. Jennings and Martin Ferree, the two American newspaper correspond ent, who were arrested Sunday night . and held by order of the minister of the interior, were released rom custody i early last night. Distinct Relief at Capital. Washington, Aug. 12. Distinct relief was apparent in official circles here yes terday over the course or events in Mex ico. , The statement of Frederico Gam boa, the new Mexican minister of for eign relations, that he had "great faith in the reasonableness of the judgment of the United States" holding the con viction that the difficulties between the two countries "soon would be adjusted,' produced a very favorable impression in administration circles. Secretary Bryan commented optimistically on it and the White House officials were pleased. President Wilson pointed out during the day to callers what seemed to him efforts on the part of some people un known to him through published mis representations to involve the United States in intervention. He reiterated that the attitude of this government to ward Mexico in the present situation was one of peace and friendliness. The safe arrival in Mexico City of John Lind, personal representative and officially designated adviser to the Amer ican embassy, ended some tense moments in the situation. With the air cleared of rumors of hostilities in the Mexican capital to Mr. Lind's presence there, officials were dis posed to believe the program , of the American government would be carried out quietly. Captain Capehart of the battleship Michigan, which proceeded laat Thurs day from Vera Cruz to Ciudad Del Car men as the result oi a complaint to the state department by Mrs. Phrrbe Hearst that rebels were threatening American life and property in the re gion of her ranch near that place, vhas reported that "American subjects are not in danger; have not been threat ened; and have received property pro tection from the Mexican authorities."

Thomp son pleaded not guilty and the case against him was continued for hearing. He was released on nis own recogniz ance. Previous to the arraignment of Thomp son, Constable Alorris and the cnier or police made an Inspection of the man's home on Maple avenue at the request of the state's attorney. They found five j children, ranging in age from three to j twelve years. Conditions within the house bordered on the unbelievable, the officers say. The mother died some years ago and since that time the household duties had devolved upon the nine-year-old daughter, as her elder sister is said to be unable to assist in the family cares. The trip to Thompson's home was the outcome of a protest which citizens of Maple avenue made to the state's at torney. Many professed to be outraged, as the conditions had continued bad for many weeks, they said. Overseer Shep ard of the poor department stated o-day that the father had appealed for assist ance only once since his wife died. That was last winter when the lamily was supplied with wood. Persons familiar with the case say that Thompson is ca pable of decently supporting his family, since he draws a day wage or ifj.iio. Thompson had not retained counsel. Weather Forecast.
