The sail ing hour of the four transports carrying the larger part of the Fifth brigade to Vera Cruz was fixed for 4:30 p. m.. today. WASHINGTON, Aprl 2. President Wilson and his war staff today proceeded with their plans for operations In Mexico with buslness-llko expedition. The day found every available American warship ploughing southward for the Mexican coasts on the Atlantic and the Pacific and a full brigade of the First army division shipping In transports from Galveston for Vera Cruz. This army force would place more than 10.000 Ameri can troops In the Mexican seaport, to hold the city or begin offensive opera tions toward Mexico City, with Vera Pniz ns a base. NovPlans for further oggresslv move-. Ynthta about Veracrua were The"president tod callers that for the present no general campaign outside of Vera Cruz was planned and that no further campaign would bo begun unless General Huerta declared war or sought reprisal .for the seizure of the city. The president -told Representative Fitzgerald that no further war runas were jieeaea as yet, and that none would be asked un less a general war was precipitated by Huerta. Vera Cms U Qalet. Meanwhile reports from Admiral Bad ger In Vera Cruz Bald that the city was comparatively quiet and that the Ameri can' forces were doing their utmost to. restore order and aid In the restoration of business. Bands from the American fleet gave concerts In the streets where a few hours before the rattle of rifles had heralded death and Injury. By tomorrow Admiral Badger will have fi.KOO marines and bluejackets ashore at Vera Cruz, sufficient, he says, to repulse any effort that may be made by I he Mexican forces under General Mass, now at Soledad, thirty-six miles away. The transports, convoyed by the first torpedo boat division, were expected to get away late today or tonight.

These Camp Crockett regiments-' Fourth, Seventh, Nineteenth and Twenty- eighth Infantry, comprising about 3,500 men and forming- the bulk of the brigade are largely veterans, all having seen service In the Philippines. They worked all night packing and cleaning camp, and by daylight not only were ready to move, but the 100 acres they had occupied were almost literally broomswept, so careful was the clean-up. One lone military prisoner was com pelled to remain in a low-railed enclosure at the end of the camp, where all the troops passed on their march to the front in full view. He walked 'round his enclosure, all the time watching the troops. Fonrthlnfnntrr Included.

The quarter- master corps of the ormy over night completed arrangements whereby the passenger steamer, San Marcos, of the Mallory line, and the freighter, Hatllla, of the Texas Steamship company, are now at the dlsiosal of General Funston at Galveston as an additional transport to take his command to Vera Cruz.
