WASH1NGTON, June 20. President
Wilson will place the cntlro Mexican sit
uation before Congress nt a special Joint
session to be held on Wednesday nt noon,
If General Carrnnza falls to reply to the
President's demand for the release of the
Americans enptured nt Carrizal.
Whether the President nt that time will
ask for a Hat declaration of war on the de
facto Government of Mexico or will sug
gest passage of a resolution, such ns was
adopted at the time of the Vera Cruz Inci
dent, permitting hm to utilize the armed
forces of the Government to enforce the
decrees of the State Department, has not
yet been decided. The legal authorities of
the State Department today are consider
ing this question. Congress will follow
any plan that the President suggests, the
leaders said today.
A double responsibility for the Carrizal
battle appeared partly established today. It
dW3 not however, place such a burden on
the American forces as to assure peace.
Onla complete right about face by Car

American force before Carrizal might have
Morey wrote that Captain Boyd was un

On the other hand, the publication of
the American demands for the release of
17 American prisoners from Chihuahua
showed that Carranza liad issued the order
to General Trevino not to permit the Amer

This would place upqn Carranza the re,

JUBILATION AND SILENCE.
High Jubilation reigned In the dun tents
of the chosen fighters when the news spread
that they weie to face the Mexicans. There
was a mighty burst of cheering. They had
expected It. So had every one else. But
the reality of It was stunning and the
pyschologlcal reaction was to shout und
yell and roar.
Then suddenly, as If some vast Invisible
hand had been laid over the tented war
riors, a hush fell over the field. It was
logical, too, that they should, become silent.
It was sobering.
