Tampico Practically
Without Americans;
Exodus Ended To-day
By Associated Press
Tampico .Mexico, April 27. Via
Vera Cruz, April 29. —The American
exodus from Tnmpico, which began
Wednesday April 22, virtually reached
its end to-day with the departure for
Vera Cruz of about sixty American
refugees on board the tank steamer
Cantield. The total number of refu
gees sent from there to American
ports since the movement is officially
given at 2.270.
There are a number of Americans
still in Tampico. These number a
score or more. They have all lived
here for many years and are highly
thought of by the Mexican population,
among whom they have made many
warm friends. They are to-day shel
tered in the home of Mexican friends
living along the Panuco. river and are
in little danger.
No creditable reports have reached
here of any damage to the oil wells,
tanks and pipe lines in the Tampico
J and Panuco region, but the Corona
and other great wells in the Panuco
district are overflowing. Many thou
sand barrels of oil are being lost daily
because no effective way of stopping
the flow has been found. Oil experts
predict that within a week or ten days
the retaining reservoirs will overflow.
Asa result a deluge of oil will be pre
cipitated into the river and should this
catch on fire Tampico and the month
of the river will be threatened with
Some Refuse to Move
There was almost a condition of
panic among the Americans last Wed
nesday when, without an Jiour's warn
ing, the little squadron of American
vessels under Rear Admiral Henry T.
Mago steamed down the Panuco river,
leaving more than 2,000 Americans
defenseless in Tampico. Since this
time, however, all those who wanted
to leave have been given the oppor
tunity to do so. In addition to the
long time residents of the city there
are still a few Americans in the dis
trict back of the river, who absolutely
refuse to come out.
From the beginning Captain Dough
ty of the Frltish cruiser Hermtone has
been indefatigable in his efforts to
warn Americans, wherever he could
reach them, that they should leave the
district. Patrol boats of the Hermione
have thoroughly explored the Tampico
lagoon, and according to reports made
to the British commander the Amer
ican settlements along the lagoon are
The temper of the Mexican popula
tion toward the Americans during the
exodus was not merely so violent as
might have been expected. No at
tempts were made to molest Amer
icans. Some excitable Mexicans in
sulted them, but none was assaulted.
The mob vented its energy In waving
Mexican flags, shooting off pistols,
breaking a few windows, and shouting
"viva Mexico."
The Americans who left Tampico
Sunday were quartered aboard the
cruiser Pes Moines, they re
mained until they were transferred
to the Canfleld, which is now taking
tnem to Galveston The steamer
Montevideo, flying the Spanish naval
ensign and in charge of officers and
men from the Spanish cruiser Carlos
V., arrived off the port Sunday to take
on Spanish subjects. She left to-day
for Vera Cruz with 150 refugees, in
cluding four Americans. The only
American warships off the port to-day
are the gunboat Dolphin, the cruisers
Birmingham and Des Moines and nine
torpedo boat destroyers. The Hermi
one and a few foreign merchant ves
sels are still in the river.
As a result of the exodus of foreign
ers anil the dispersal of a large part
of the native population business in
Tampico Is at a complete standstill.
•iThe only visible signs of acthlty are
along the custom house wharf, where
three steamers are unloading.
Will Defend Tampico
While there is good reason to be-!
lieve that the rebels investing Tampico |
will rejt.et any proposal to ally them
selves with the federals for the pur
pose of resisting any possible Amer
ican aggression there is some uncer
tainty as to what course the federals
would pursue in such an eventuality.
General Zaragosa, the federal com
mander, has made public announce
ment of his determination to defend
Tampico to the last. On the other
hand he is reported to have said to a
friend last Friday that opposition to
American advance would be quite
hopeless; that he would only make a
feeble show of defense sufficient to
satisfy the demands of honor and then
evacuate the city. General Zaragosa's
force is, not believed to exceed 1,000
Considering the federal situation
from the standpoint of rebel attack,
indications point to their ability to
defend Tampico indefinitely. The'fed
erals are well supplied with artillery,
of which the rebels have none. The
rebel attacks hitcherto have never
been skilfully directed and they al
ways have been futile.
The sanitary conditions at Tampico
are bad. The water supply is scant,
and to a large measure polluted.

have Impressed on all departing Mexi

the United States and their desire
that the full truth of all that has hap

be transmitted to the inland cities.
They hope that tho ill-feeling will stop
when the truth becomes known.
The few of General Funston's of

with naval officers and refugees about

Little Anxiety For
Safety of Americans Is
Now Felt at Vera Cruz
liy Associated Press
Vera Cruz, Mex., April 29.—Anxiety
In Vera Cruz as to friends and rela
tives In the interior has been greatly
relieved by the events of yesterday,
which show that the Mexican authori
ties are permitting Americans to come
down to the coast. To-day the Amer
ican colony, which Is growing steadily,
settled down to await news from
Puerto Mexico of the arrival of three
trainloads of refugees from Mexico
City, which the Huertu officials prom
ised Commander Tweedie, of the Brit
ish cruiser Etesex, had been dispatched j
from the capital last night.
The route from the capital to Puerto,
Mexico Is long and roundabout, and it
is not expected that the trains will
reach the coast before next Friday.
Hear Admiral Badger will have a ves
sel at Puerto Mexico to meet the ref
ugees. He probably will not send a
warship, as this might arouse anti-
American feeling in a town which up
to the present time has been entirely
quiet. The passenger boats available
here for the trip to Puerto Mexico
have limited wireless equipments;
consequently the arrival of the refugee
trains, together with the names of
those on board, may not be learned
until the steamer returns to Vera
Cruz. If the refugee trains are tilled
to capacity, us they probably will be,
it Is estimated that 800 people will
be conveyed to Puerto Mexico. It is
impossible in Vera Cruz to determine
how many Americans this would leave

Mr. O'Shaughnessy and Arnold

with him, are still here awaiting or

The Soledad refugees are enthusias

whose determined stand, they believe,

death or at least prolonged suffering.
On being released from the peniten
tiary at Soledad, where they had been
confined as a protection against the
mob, the refugees were taken to the
railroad track and handed over to a
Mexican major, who had no instruc
tions as to what to do with them. A
train bound for Mexico City passed but
they were not permitted to board it.
After waiting hours In the blazing
sun, Commander Tweedie's train
steamed into sight, bound for Vera
Cruz. Several refugees approached
the British officer and told of their
"You need not worry, Commander
Tweedle answered. "Tills train will
not leave without you."
Permitted to Depart
Commander Tweedle calmly insist
ed to the Mexican* officer that he be
permitted to take the Americans with
him to Vera Cruz, and he refused to
listen to the officer's protest that he
had no authority in the matter. The
Federal officer Anally capitulated and
hastened back to the city for instruc
tions, returning In an hour with per
mibsion for the tired, hungry and
nervous Americans to depart.
The refugees told also of the gallant
conduct of the Mexican military com
mander at Soledad and of the mayor
I who made every effort to protect the
j refuges from the mob in the street,
j On the nigh when the situation
| was especially serious, the mayor made
an address to the citizens urging them

'however, was done by the command

into the army and sent they away tc

of Vera Cruz the fullest measure of
liberty, permitting them to wander at

night in order to convince them of the

of one or two shots tired in the outly

the city was tranquil.

Hy Associated Press
Washington, D. C., April 29.—While
scores of Americans continued their
hurried exodus from Mexico and
Hrigadler General Funston's troops
were landing to complete the occupa
tion of Vera Cruz to-day, the repre
sentatives of three South American
republics gathered in the library of
the Argentine legation and resumed
the preliminaries of their attempt to
steer the Mexican crisis into ways ot
peace. No intimation of the tenor of
their program has been revealed.
There was no indication of when pro
posals would be submitted to Huertu
or the Washington government, but it
seemed probable that three or four
days would be required before the
next move would be made. Whether
the exercise of the South American
envoys' "good offices" would progress
to the point of actual mediation was
a matter of tremendous importance
to be settled by later developments,
but a spirit of optimism over progress
of the negotiations was apparent in ex
ecutive quarters.
Seek Middle Ground
The army and navy to-day contin
ued to execute succeeding chapters in
plans to meet any eventualities, but in
terest in their movements was over
shadowed by that evinced in the work
of the representati%*es of the South
American republics. The three peace
makers, proceedings cautiously, arc
gathering all possible information
from both American and Mexican
sources with the aim of reaching mid
dle ground from which they may
project their next move. Conscious
that practically all the civilized na
tions of the world are alertly watch
ing the progress of tills attempt at
Pan-American diplomacy, they are
careful to distinguish between the ex.
ercise of their "good offices" and what
may develop later if the stage, of ac
tual mediation is reached. It has beer
suggested that the envoys' next move
might be to ask the Huerta and Wash
