Expects American Army to Enlsr
Mexico at Laredo, Tex.
WILL MASS HIS MEN AT POHT
President Wilson Still Awaits'" Elec
tion Results Before Telling the
World ' What He"ls Going to-Do.
. . . - . I
Believing that Iaredo, Tex., would
bo the tlrst point of invasion and
realizing that hlB defiance of Presi
dent Wilson is probably the last move
before armed Intervention, Dictator
Huerta lias given orders for the Mexi
can federal army to mass 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 troops
have been placed, several miles south
of the boundary. The full force of
Mexican soldiers concentrated at this
point is 3,000, wliich 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 ft and firmly by the policy
it has taken. This is precisely the
opinion of the ministers, the govern
ments and the press of Europe.
' Extreme pessimism 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 few days over 1
all Washington, both In administra
tive ( irclts 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 backed out of anything.
The impatience of other govern
ments regarding the attitude of the
United States toward Mexico aiAl 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
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. rVi-
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 titan
leasnjng, . '- . . ""
The report that the government of
Italy is 'Betiding 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 British ships
are at hand in the West Indies.
The gathering of all these warships
is regarded as 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 Mate 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. Admiral Fletcher
reported that he had placed Diaz, his
two Mexican companions and Alex
ander Williams, American newspaper
man, on board the Michigan, which
proceeded to sea. She will put tho
refuges on board a passenger steamer
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
his 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
placed himself in a ridiculous position
by fleeing when he was in absolutely
no danger as he was under the pro
tection of the troops.
SULZER m IN
Printer Alleges Small Group

WANTS GOY. GLYNN REMOVED
W. H. Moore, Employe of New York
World, Hopes to Have Supreme
Court Pats on Pertinent Question.
A suit to enjoin Martin H. Glynn
from acting as governor of New York
and to compel the reinstatement of
William Sulzer was Hied in the United
States district court by William Moore,
a printer on the New York World t:id
a member of the arbitration board of
The petition names not only Gover
nor Glynn as a defendant, but. also
Mr. Sulzer, various btate 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 York 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 ot the United States.
In other words, the petition alleges,
that because of the usurpation of
power the state no longer has a re
publican form of government as de
fined by the United States constitu
tion. ulzer, 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 i 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
state, its many ofiices and vast funds,
for their sole use and benefit.
Mr. Moore denied there was any pol
itics behind his suit. He said he and
his 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
"Evidences of trade recession are
confined to industrial lines, strictly
mercantile conditions remaining favor
able. The reactionary tendency in
iron and steel has become rather more
marked, further price concessions
being announced and a slackening of
operations noted at some mills.
"Through the process of lowering
quotations new demands have been
stimulated in certain directions and
consumption is well maintained, with
hopeful views expressed regarding the
outlook. While the September quarter
did not equal expectations, with one
exception, the net earnings exceeded
all previous records for the period and
a substantial gain was shown over
