Am bassador Da Oama urged the Brazilian minister In Mexico City to do all ho ould for tho release of tha Americans. Find Alibi for llnrrtn. Officials were much exercised over the reported assassination of Americans In Mexico City. Serious eventualities there, it was pointed out, might aggravate the present situation and servo to arouBo .! sentiment among tho peoplo that would demand moro aggrcaslvo action In Mexico on the part of this government It was further emphasized, however, that mob lotenco could not be construed as any deliberate act of General Huorta and that j It could bo claimed by hta government that it was powerless to control the sit uation, owing to tho anti-American feel ing aroused by tho seizure of Vera Cruz. Although no new military orders wero Issued by tho War department, plans for perfecting tho operations at Vera Cruz and atoncr the Mexican border wero con sidered by Secretary Garrison, General Wotherspoon, chief of staff, and Major General Wood, who has been chosen to direct the military operations in co-operation with Secretary of tho Navy Daniels, win stilt sit right. After a long conference of tho depart ment officials, early in tho day, Secre tary Garrison declared that tho troops sent to Vera Cruz to reinforce tha naval forces there, wero being sent there "for duty." What form this duty would take or how extensive or aggressive the oper ation of the troops would be, the secre tary would not say. It was', declared, however, that there had been no change In the policy ot tho government to "sit tight" at Vera Cruz, unless retaliatory tactic should bs resorted to by General llucrta or somo overt action by the con stitutionalists' should demand a forward movement Into Mexico. Neutrality of the constitutionalists, official belloved, would be enforced. What Mar Bet Done. Shout war be forced on this govern ment, it wo pointed out the base of operationa would be Vera Cruz, and the plan wold -'be, to, confine tho advanco as far ft; 'p'oislblo, to. the territory con trolled by Huorta, with Mexico City as the objective polpt jot tho American forces. , v The movement, it was generally be lieved, would be an extensive one. Al though It still la the determined policy- of tho president to prevent war, tho army and navy are prepared for any emer gency, and should the word come to ad- Vance to the Interior in order to protect Ufa and property, it is said, tha War department is ready to send in an army of 10,000 to 30,000 men, and to increase tha forces to a. great degree along the Mexi can border. Today there were appeals for more troops from border states, and tho War department officials, while considering plans for co-onerating with tho nrilltla In those states, also were working out plans for calling Into tho service tho mllltla of various states, under the terms of the volunteer army bill just passed. The War department throughout tho day was humming with excitement. Ho porta that General Wood already had been ordored to Vera Cruz were emphatically denied. He-ports of dissension in tho cabinet over tho policy being pursued in the Mexican crisis also wero denied and Sec. retary of State Bryan branded as falso rumors again circulated that he would resign his post in the event that war Is declared. Spain to Hepresent Mexico. Announcement today by the Bpanlsh ambassador, Mr. Xtlano, that Mexico had turned its affairs In tho United States over to his government, came as a sur Pri to official here, tho general ex pectation having ben that Franco would be asked to act in Mexico's behalf. Vol lowing report from Madrid that King Alonso was willing to act a mediator in the differences between this government and Mexico, the selection of Spain to look after the affairs ot Mexico was regarded with significance. Although there have been several informal suggestions ot diplomatic intervention from various quarters, it is declared at the State de partment that no formal offers had been made nor wero any expected. Americana Under Arrest. In an official report from Consul Can ada at Vera Cruz tho State department was informed today that several Amerl cans wero placed under arrest In Mexico City after being taken from the refugee train that carried Charge O'Shaughnessy and his party to Vera. Cruz. J. Starr Hunt and his family wero among- those arrested. Burton Wilson wa taken from the train at the first station out of Mex ico City. tho early days of his Incumbency. He has spoken often of tho subject ot uni versal peace and has expressed altruistic sentlmenta, and,' among other tilings, has declared in a speech delivered In th woat that thorn would be no war while he was secretary of state. Bryan Will Not Leave the Cabinet WASHINGTON. April .-Secretary of State Brya.li today emphatically denied Widespread and persistent reports that ha would resign from the cabinet. When informed ot published reports that he would relinquish hi post should war be declared against Mexico, Mr. Bryan said "The subject ot my resignation has never been discussed with anybody nor thought of by me," It is stated on authority that in no cose has Secretary Bryan declared that ho would resign his office Jn case it became necessary lor the united States to engage in war and he ha let it be known to his personal mends that ho could be railed on to do Ma full duty to tho administration and to remain at his post under present con. Unions and any others that he thought could possibly arwe. The rumors of Mr. Bryan's Intention to retire from, the cabinet in various eon Jliuteneles are ascribed by bis friends to sentiment pttered by the secretary in Map Showing Vera Cruz and Mountainous Route to the Mexican Capital Wife mpWl.- yJCMADA Jm&3yJ ry J&ttWCFivz Practically All Americans Are Out of Ohuhuahua EIj PASO.

At Naco, Douglas and Nogales. on tho Arizona-Mexican border, thoy are arriv ing by tho score and by hundreds every day and tho state of Sonora, save In Isolated ranches and camps not yet reached by warnings, is now practically denuded of them.

Many of these industries have remained oporatlvo, partially 'tat least, through every difficulty and discouragement of robbery, taxation, uncertain communica tions and oven personal danger of em ployes, but almost tho last one of those Americans who built and maintained them has been driven out by tho de velopments of the affair at Tamplco. W. W. Grubbs of Motlera, where the great saw mills have porslstently, but on a constantly diminished scale, manufac tured their output, related a pathetlo In cident of tho departure of the Americans from that city. 'The closing of the mills meant much to us," ho said, "but I gucs It meant more to the thousands of Mexicans em ployed thero. There was a big crowd of them at the station when we wont away and some fairly begged us to stay. I don't know what will become ot them, now that. their employment Is irone. It was a sad scene and we didn't havo an enemy in the crowd. In fact, through the wnole trip we encountered nothing but courtesy and not a sign of enmity."

The State department said that no offi cial dispatches confirmed the report that four American had been killed In Mexico City and that Consul Canada at Vera Cruz, still in communication with the department, made no mention ot such an occurrence.

April 24,-Crlstabol Mar tinez, a wealthy Mexican, who always had declared his friendship for Ameri cans, and Whose wife was an American, escaped perhaps a more humiliating finish when ho died today as tho result of a wound received during the fighting Wednesday. Martinez was In a houso from which persistent sniping operations were carried on. It was Buspected that ho was doing tha shooting. Ho was watched and warned. Finally ho was detected on a balcony with his knees covered with a newspaper. From time to time tho nows paper was sscn to rlso simultaneously with a detonation. This evidence wo regarded as so convincing that Martinez was. shooting, that ho became a mark for tho American sharpshooters. A steel jacketed bullet then burled Itself in him. The wound It mode was a erlou's one, but tho friends of Martinez Inside tho houso hid him In order to pro- vent his arrest.

The ring fitted her exactly and she was greatly pleased with the noble sentiment of the inscription. "Whate'cr betide, let love abide;" but she did not like Its ar rangement. Examination showed that the stolid, unimaginative old German engraver had carved In tho sentence regardless ot the ring maker's little, stamp of qUallty, and so It read: "Whate'cr betide, let 14-K love abide."
