WASHINGTON, Nov. 25.-Confllcttng
advices and ' uncertain communication
with Mexico City caused doubt and ap
prehension today over what actually was
occurring in the Mexican capital.
A first official dispatch dated early
yesterday said General Lucio Blanco had
abandoned the city and that the Zapata
forces were entering. Then a later dis
patch dated at t o'clock yesterday after
noon said that while General Blanco
was not to be found, he still was reported
to be somewhere In the capital, while
- bis troops, however, were evacuating and
taking property as they left.
In Pact with Tills.
The Zapata forces were then reported
on the outskirts of the city and It was
understood that they vera la agreement
Ith Yiua Kirces not to enter the cap
ital until the latter arrived.
This, the latest official dispatch pointed
eat, was uncertain, however, though the
Brazilian minister had received assur
ance from the Zapatista chiefs that they
would preserve order and give every pro
tection to foreigner.
Mob Loots Stores and Shops.
MEXICO CITY, Nov 24-fDelayed)-Serlous
disorder occurred In the capital
tonight, when a mob gathered tn front
of the national palace.
- Later they marched to stores where
arms and ammunition were kept, bat
tered down the doors 'and sacked the
places of their contents.
There was much shooting, but thus far,
uccordlng to reports), the casualties are
Police Powerless.
The police .were powerless, as the few
who remained to guard the city were
t tripped of their arms by the mob.
Later In the evening the mob which
had, been constantly growing, broke up
into smaller bodies and the looting of
pawn shops and other establishments tn
various sections of the city was begua
The trouble began at 6 o'clock lit the
evening and at a late hour still con
tinued. All the street car trafflo was
stopped except the Red Cross service,
which was taking care of dead and
wounded brought . in from the fighting
around Tacubaya. '
At 8 o'clock bodies of civilians and
former federal soldiers were formed.
They paraded the principal street and
marched to police headquarters and the
Brazilian legation, where they wen
armed. ,
It was hoped that this force' eventually
would be able to control the situation.

LONPON.' Nov. . 4:lt P. m. Great
Britain and France have appealed to the
United Btates to exercise Us good offices
to compel Colombia to observe more
strictly the requirements of neutrality.
Otherwise the allies. It was announced
In the House of Commons today, may be
compelled . In self-defense to take what
ever measures they deem necessary for
the protection of their Interests. ,
Charles Roberta, under secretary of the
colonial department, speaking oa behalf
of the Foreign office, mads thia announcement-in
the House of Commons He
aaid that Information In the poaaeaalon
of the government Indicated that the gov
ernments of Colombia and Ecuador had
failed la certain respects to observe an
attitude of strict neutrality and that their
failure to do so was likely to be detri
mental to the Interests of England .
The particular cause of complaint
against Colombia has referenoa to a high
power wireless station.
The British charge d'affaires endeavored
repeatedly, said Mr. Roberts, to Induce
the government to remove the staff of
Germans at the wireless station and In
stitute strict control tn order to prevent
the transmission of messages' to belliger
ent merchant ships lying In Colombian
ports. Falling In this the charge M.ught
to have the station dosed. The icport
received from the charge leaves it In
doubt whether steps taken by 'the Co
lombian government are of an effective

Reports from Russian sources
during the last two days of an
Imposing victory In the war with
Austria and Germany are at vari
ance with an official statement
today from Berlin. While the
O e r m a n military authorities
stated previously that the ad
vance toward Warsaw had been
checked by the arrival of Russian
reinforcements, there was do in
dication ir today's statement that
any decislvw results had been at
tained by either of the opposing
Military activity in the west is
centered In the line from the Bel
gian town of . Ypres across the bor
der to LaBassee In France. This
latest phase of the war Is believed
to mark another German effort to
push forward to the English
channel, and it is said that the
battle 1b blazing forth with all the
fury and desperation of the for
mer German attacks. The Ger
mans have brought up reinforce
ments and new heavy guns, and it
Is expected In London that the
next few days will be marked by
some of the most deadly encoun
ters of the war.
Definite news as to the out
come of the crucial struggle In
the east still is lacking. Private
dispatches from Petrograd state
that the Russians have made an
Important forward movement on
the Czentochowa - Cracow line,
which rpughly parallels the bor
der of Silesia and extends from
Poland to Austrian territory near
the fortress of Cracow.
The latest official statement
from Petrograd says that the Rus
sians are still on the offensive on
the main battleground between
the Vistula and Warta rivers, and
that heavy losses have been In
flicted on the retreating enemy.
Austria - and Germany, however,
state that the battle still is in
progress , and that issue had not
been decided.
tlons there, found that the wireless sta
tion nominally was being operated under
censorship, but that In reality It waa
entirely under German Influence. He
considered it of importance to auppress
the operation of, the station. Ho also
of Colombia were continuing to use their jftjfifjp BlaiUCS IllS
It therefore appeared to the British
government, said Mr. Roberts, that fur
ther representations to Colombia were
not likely to be of any avail. It was
therefore decided to appeal, la co-operation
with the French government, to ths
good offices of the United Btates to pro
cure a .more strict enforcement of Co
lombian neutrality. It was also also
stated that in the event that Colombia
continued to maintain lta present attitude
ths allied governments might be com
pelled tn self-defense to take such meas
ures as they deemed necessary for the
protection of their Interests.
Mr. Roberts wont on to say that a
similar -communication had been sent to
Washington with respect to Ecuador,
whoso foreign minister "had himself In
formed the British charge and his French
coUesgues that German warships bad
converted certain islands belonging to I
Ecuador Into naval bases."
In reply to a question by Karl Ronald- i
shay. Mr. Huberts said that in the com- I
municatlon to Washington no assertion ;
had been made that these breaches of .
neutrality had resulted in the loss of ths !
cruisers, Good Hor.e and Monmouth. ;

British and French warships, to
gether with Germany's grim prepara

crush a way through the allied line
to the French coast, were the most
significant features in today's news
from the western arena of the war.
In the east the situation as regard
the Russian and German armies la
Poland remains a little obscure. Ths
Germans, on the other hand, are not
denying that the advance of General
von Hlndenburg has been checked,
while fVe Russian War office, al
though not issuing an extended state
ment, claims a decisive victory.

"With tha smashing of tha submarines

ously assembling at Zeebrugs. the allied
fleet has been removed from that tnenaee)
on tha coast. It la now felt there Is
little1 danger of an undersea, raid, and as
additional saws dispatches are received
from the other aide of the channel It is
apparent thai the damage Inflicted btt

was far more extensive than was at first
"Soma reports received in London aeS
forth that tho Germans already have
started another attack upon the allies
front In Flanders .which will be mors
Intense and formidable than any btthert
undertaken. It la apparent that the Oer-
mans hava been carefully preparing for
thia move for aome day a past The situa
tion vrocludea the possibility of a secret
attack, and It is said that tha Invaders
have ona ahead with their plans quite
openly, keeping secret only the poind
where they proposed to center their of
fensive movement.' It la the opinion of
military observers here that the next
onslaught, will be particularly menacing;
because the Germans, profiting by the
mistakes previously made, will keep far
enough away from the coast to avoid the
naval guns and wlU not waste their
energy by advancing at several points at
the same time, but will concentrate all
their efforts on one spot, where they
hope to break through by sheer weighs
of numbers. '
"Having shattered tha Prussian guard,
however, when It essayed the feat, the
allies say they have every reason to acs
the present situation with confidence."
