TO QUIT VERA GRUZ
ON NOVEMBER 23
Marines Now in Mexican
City Will Be Brought to

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. Positive
that tlio Mexican pcoplo can work out
tholr own destiny, tho Administration to
day -was ru.ililiiK Its preparation to elim
inate all traces of American domination
In Mexico. Despite tho wild rumors of
Impending- anarchy, tho responsible
heads of the Vnttfed States tiollevo that
tho enttro Mexican situation Is mate
rially Improved. It Is considered certain
that somo sort of compromise agreement
will yet bo reached by the opposing
leaders In the troublous republic to tho
It Is because It Is realized that tho pres
ence of American troops In Moxlco Is an
evcr-prcscnt source, of Irritation that the
American resulnrs have been ordered to
lenVo Vera Crux by November 23.
Tho War Department was today mak
ing Its arrangements for tlio withdrawal
of tho troops. General Funston has live
transports Waiting to bo loaded, and. It
Is not expected that much tlmo will bo
lost In getting his troops back to the
STABIjE GOVERNMENT IN SIGHT.
Before this decision Secretary Bryan
conferred with tho representatives dt the
ABO Powors. Thoy agreed that the
Mexicans have been coddled too muSli.
Thrown on their own resources and forced
to organize .a stable Government, It was
believed that tho resultant crisis would
dovelop the real Mexican leader and that
out t)f tho present chaos orderly govern
ment would come.
' Just who Is to receive tho mora than
I $1,000,000 collected In customs receipts at
tho port of Vera Cruz will not bo decided
for the present. Late yesterday Secre
tary Bryan received Identical guarantees
of recognition of foreign rights and of
protection for Americans and other
nationalities from tho representatives of
tho Agiiascallentos convention. Similar
nssuranccs had already been received
from Carranza. Today the two factions,,
one of which Is believed certain to
triumph In Mexican affairs within tho
v next few weeks, are publicly pledged to
restore the Government to tho people of
t There is only one thing which could
' ' causa the United States to Interfere.
'-'. That would be a wholesale massacre of
i J foreigners' by either of the controlling
V factions. And In that oventuallty. It Is
' pointed out horo, what would happen
,- would be that a punitive expedition
would be sont into the country and the
persons responsible punished directly In
accordance with tho rules of interna
tional law. ,(
On the evacuation, the troops under
Funston will bo transported to Texas
City, Texas, Secretary of War Garrison'
announced today. There are now Ave
"nrmy transports at Vera Cruz, and all
arrangements for embarking tho troops
havo been completed for six weeks.
The marine forces at Vera Cruz will
be taken to Philadelphia. The first and
second regiments will be kept there, and
tho third regiment will bo distributed to
, the various Bhlps and Bhort stations.
