Mexiro City. Oct. 27. Returns of j erg could look on and observe which
yesterday's elections may possibly be
knon within a week, but more like
ly a fortnight will elapse before the re-
tult is placed before the public. Not j
vi-n a good guess as to who Is at the
top of h! puii tan be made at
present. Returns even from nearby
Miles are fragmentary. In the fedoral
apital itself the results may be known
in a day or two.
At the c lose of the elections the indi
cations were that not sufficient votes
had heen cast to constitute a legal
rholce for the presidency to succeed
General Victorlana Huerta. The bal
lots were cast without disorder.
No official announcement was made
but it was estimated. Judging from
the results in the capital, where it was
xpected the vote would be up to the j
average, that less than 10.000 of the
XO.00O eligible voters went to the polls.
It would be no surprise if congress, the
members of which also were voted
for today, declared the election void
when the body organised and re
vises the returns.
Since the deputies and senators are
not subject to the provisions govern
ing the presidential elections, it is said
the choice for congress is assured. It
is assumed, on the showing so far as
known, the Catholic party will obtain
a hiajority in both chamber and senate.
ATHOI.IC CLUM I.KU).
Leaders of the Catholic party claim
ed a long lead la tin presidential race,
.although they were unable to estimate
the number of votes polled for their
candidates, Federico Gam boa and Gen
eral Rascon. If this claim is correct.
It is generally thought that General
Felix I )lex and Senor Kequena ran sec
ond. The liberal candidates, Manuel
C: 'ero and Flores Magon. had no print
ed ticket at the polling places and
their constituents were obliged to
w rite their names in blauk spaces.
President Huerta spent the day at
lilx Popotia suburban home. A decree
will be Issued by General Huera In
creasing the army from 83.000 men. Its

General Huerta proposed such an In
crease some time ago. but the congress
which lie dissolved limited him to SO,

Manual Calero, the liberal .candidate,
w ho one w as ambassador at Wash
ington, did not vote. Instead, he took
his family early in the day Into the
country. After he returned, he said:
"I understand the voting was ex
ceedingly dull. Nobody appears to be
lieve in the seriousness of the election,
On account of the political conditions
many refused to vote. 1 myself did not
vote. Had we had indirect balloting I
would have done so. but since it was

either for myself or any other candi
date." ;NIIOl FOR nrl'ONKM.
Federico Gamboa. the candidate of
the Catholic party, on the other hand,
cast his ballot for Senor Calero. Neith
er of these candidates cared to express
an opinion as to whether a sufficient
number of ballots had been deposited
to make the elections effective.
Few of those who went to the polls
took the trouble to vote for either sen-
ators or deputies.
There was no semblance of disorder
in any quarter of the city. A few
patrols w-ere on the streets, but neith
er police nor troops had any but their
usual duties to perform.
The polling place opened at 9 o'clock
in the morning and remained open un

and closed again at 5 p. m.

by Great Britain lasts only until an

Mobile, Ala., Oct. 27. President
Wilson announced to the world today
that the governing motive of the

FINANCIAL POWER ARRAIGNED.
With the Mexican situation upper
most in the president's mind at this
time, his address was interpreted as
an arraignment of those financial in
fluences which, it has been charged,
have secured in some cases recogni
tion for the Huerta government.
The president declared it would be

that yiey might enjoy constitutional

GOISG TO BE DIFFERENT.
The president spoke extemporane
ously. "I came here," he said, "to
speak of our present and prospective
relations with our neighbors to the
south. The future is going to be very
Cifferent for this hemisphere from
what it has been in the past. Those
states lying to the south which have
always been our neighbors, will be
drawn closer to each other by common
ties of understanding. Interests do
not tie nations together, it sometimes
separates them. But sympathy and
understanding do bind them to
gether. You hear of concessions to
foreign capital in Latin America, but
you don't hear of concessions to for
eign capital in the United States. They
are not granted concessions. They
are invited to make investments.
"It is an invitation, not privilege,
and states that are obliged to grant
concessions are in a condition that
foreign Interests are apt to dominate
their domestic affairs. Such a condi
tion of affairs is apt to become intol
erable and it is emancipation from
this invitable subordination which we
deem it our duty to assist in. Their
