Yl- f EXPERIENCE
y" -A Tradc Marks
Expects American Army to Enter
Mexica at Laredo, Tex.
WILL MASS HIS MEN AT POINT
President Wilson Still Awaits ' Elec
tion Results Before Telling the
World What He v Is GoinrTto' Do.
Relieving that Laredo, Tex., would
bo the first point of Invasion and
realizing that his defiance of Presi
dent Wilson Is probably the last move
before armed Intervention, Dictator
Huerta 1ms given orders for the Mexi
can federal army to muss opposite
There arc 600 Mexican soldiers at
the Laredo lines, but these are to fall
back In the event the Americans ad
vance to a point where 1,500 troop
have been placed, several miles south
of the boundary. The full force of
Mexican soldiers concentrated at this
point is 3.0C0, which outnumbers any
American forces available soon.
Europe Looks For Intervention.
It seems to be the opinion In Wash
ington that only forcible Intervention
remains as a solution of the Mexican
problem, provided the administration
intends to stand firmly by the policy
It lias taken. This Is precisely the
opinion of the ministers, the govern
ments and the press of Europe.
' Extreme peFsimlsni marks the ranks
of all In Washington who have
studied the Mexican situation and
the trend of events In that quarter.
The only persons in Washington who
maintain an outward appearance of '
optimism are those few officials whose
responsibility In the matter is such
that they feel bound to refrain from
expressing an opinion even in private.
The .conviction apparently has set
tled down in the last lew days over
all Washington, both In administra
tive ilrcles and at the capital, that
there are but two ways out of the
Mexican tangle one is by retreating
and the other Is by the use of force
or a threat of force. President Wil
son said only a few days ago that he
never bucked out of anything.
The Impatience of other govern
ments regarding the attitude of the
United States toward Mexico and their
desire that this government adopt
strong measures for the restoration of
peace in that country Is indisputable
and officially acknowledged. - The ad
ministration has yielded to ' this Im
patience to the extent of asking the

Monarch Clothing1 Company,
other governments to defer action in
Mexico until the president can com
municate with them as to his future
policy following the elections.
This request has been granted with
the result that the United States now
has all Europe waiting and stands
pledged to deliver something in the
nature of a policy toward Mexico. This
policy the powers are at liberty to ac
cept or reject, and It Is thought the
president will adopt some course cal
culated to accomplish the end desired
by them that Is the restoration of
order In Mexico at the earliest pos
sible date. "''. -
A total absence of developments of
a concrete nature marks the situation
in Washington, but dispatches from
Mexico and Europe Indicated that the
tenseness Is Increasing rather than
leaguing. " , a .
The roport that the soternment of
Italy Is 'sending a cruiser to Mexican
waters attracted much attention, as
Italy has not heretofore Indicated a be
lief that it would be necessary for her
to take steps to protect her interests.
Two German cruisers are now at
Vera Cruz, a French cruiser in on the
way thither, while two American
battleships are there with four more
en route. A number of Ilrltish ships
are at hand in the West Indies.
The gathering of all these warships
Is regarded 83 a real indication of what
the interested governments think of
the Mexican situation. According to
reports from Mexico the German, Rus
sian and Swedish ministers have all
gone to Vera Cruz.
The foreign colony In Mexico City,
especially the Americans, is reported
to be in a r.tite of great apprehension
bordering on a panic. That those who
refused to obey President Wilson's
summons of last summer are now pre
paring to abandon their property and
flee Is regarded as an alarming
The case of General Felix Diaz was
finally disposed of. Adm'.ral Fletcher
reported that he hud placed Diaz, his
two Mexican companions and Alex
nder Williams, American newspaper
man, on board the Michigan, which
proceeded to sea. She will put tho
refuges on board a passenger Bteamer
outside Progresso, the last port of call
for vessels bound for Cuba and the
Diaz is generally condemned as a
"bad Mexican" for having asked pro
tectlon against his own countrymen.
Diaz explained that the reason for
bis sudden departure from his hotel
and his appeal to the American consul
for aid was that many of his friends
and partisans have been arrested by
order of Huerta and that he had been
Informed that his political enemies
were bent on his destruction.
General Maas, military commander
of Vera Cruz, said Diaz has simply
plated himself in a ridiculous position
by fleeing when he was in absolutely
no danger as he was under the pro
tectlon of the troops.

WANTS GOV, GLYNN REMOVED
W. H. Moore, Employe of New York
World, Hopes to Have Supreme
Court Pass on Pertinent Question.
A suit to enjoin Martin II. Glynn
from acting as governor of New York
and to compel the reinstatement of
William Sulzer was filed in the United
States district court by William Moore,
a printer on the New York World l:kI
a member of the arbitration board of
The petition names not only Gover
nor Glynn as a defendant, but also
Mr. Sulzer, various ttate officials, the
members of the court of appeals and
the state senators who sat in the Im
The petition charges that a group of
men In New Y'ork state have usurped
the governmental functions of the
state, are using them for purposes
other than the benefit of the citizens
and thereby have deprived the citi
zens of the rights guaranteed by the
constitution of the United States.
In other words, the petition alleges,
that because or the usurpation of
power the state no longer has a re
publican form of government as de
fined by the United States constitu
tion. sulzer, engaged in the height of a
campaign for election to the assembly
on the Progressive ticket, expressed
surprise at the starting of the suit.
"That's the first 1 have heard of It,"
Moore disclaimed any motive for the
action other than that inspired by his
duty as a citizen and taxpayer.
The petition charges a certain group
of men, consisting partly of the de
fendants and partly of men unnamed,
with having obtained control of the
Btate, Its many offices and vast funds,
for their sole use and benefit.
Mr. Moore denied there was any pol
itics behind his suit. He said he and
bis attorney, John Leary, had con
ceived the idea and submitted the
petition to several attorneys, who
agreed it had a substantial basis.
"If I lose in the district court," he
said, "I expect to appeal and lay the
whole Impeachment question before
the supreme court."
He confirmed Sulzer's declaration
that the former governor knew noth
ing about the suit before It was begun.

Dun's Review Finds Recession in Iron
and Steel Trade.
Dun's Review of Trade says this
"lividences of trado recesson are
confined to industrial lines, strictly
mercantile conditions remaining favor

Iron and steel has become rather more
marked, further price concessions

operations noted at some mills.

Btimuluted in certain directions and
consumption is well maintained, with
hopeful views expressed regarding the
