President Huerta of Mexico has ordered a sh!p Mt of several hundred choice fruit tree from a town nursery. Washington. July 9. The govern- ment received from Vera Cruz today a rth!rrm saying that the members of PrMirient Huerta's family had nailed from that port ror Puerto Mexico, which is the Atlantic coast terminus of the Tehuantepec railway. Thia movement -aa surprising In view of the fact that there is more direct communication by steamer with the outside world from Vera Cruz than from Puerto Mexico. Th inference drawn from it is that President Huerta intends to go direct from Mexico City to Puerto Mexico and sail thence with his family. Special Train Awaits Huerta. The government has Information also that a special train, with steam up In the locomotive, is Dewg neia in Mexico City ready to take Huerta away. There are one British and two Ger man warships at Puerto, Mexico. It is believed General Huerta and his fam ily will take refuge on one of these If he flees from the capital. Naval officials said no orders had been given to any naval commander in Mexican waters to furnish Huerta asylum on a United States war Tessel. but one of them admitted that the re fusal of an rtmnriran .rg'"-1 to aUow him and those with him to take passage on bis ship and to carry them to any place they wanted to go would be guilty of lack of discretion, to say the least. The attitude of the officials leads to the belier that they have detailed in formation as to the plans of General Huerta for flight. More Federal Troops Desert. Xorales. July 9.

It is said to be doubtful if there will be enough evi dence against Mrs. Florence Carman for a grand Jury Indictment charging her with the murder of Mrs. Louise Bailey.

Meyer Newman, alias Duke Deleon, was locked up hare today charged with carrying a pistol! Newman described himself as a gang leader who came to Mineola voluntarily to testify before the grand jury in the Carman case.

Newman said he was a party to the transaction and "squealed" because he did not get any of the money promised him. Nick Axode, said to be a New York gunman, a friend of Newman, was locked up.
