Railway telegraph operators report fighting between the advance guards of the federals and constitutionalists at Teoloyucan, twenty miles north of this city. The positions of the two forces were unchanged early yesterday. One of the generals who was present at the session of the war council later made this statement: - . "President Carbajal Tuesday learned that the federal peace proposals had been rejectedd by General Carranza, and that Mexico City would be taken by assault if necessary. The president also received information that American forces might aid the constitutionalists. "It was the unanimous sentiment of the generals present last night that in case of joint action by constitutionalists and Americans, the federals should evac uate Mexico City and retreating south ward, establish the present government in a city yet to be selected, thus pre serving the honor of the army. In case the capital was assaulted by constitu tionalists alone the federals are resolved to resist and employ the force of 40,000 men now available.

After a confer ence with Secretary of the Treasury Mo- Adoo yesterday, Senator Simmons, chair man of the Senate finance committee, announced that some measures must be adopted to provide revenues for the gov ernment, since the income from foreicn duties had been so sharply reduced by the falling off of imports on account of the war.
