REBELS LAND ARMS! T7-
American Schooner from Gal-
veston Was Not Molested
WASHINGTON KEEPS SILENT
STATE CAPITAL HAPPENINGS
Government Official! Refuse to Com-
ment on Incident—Bryan Denies
Rumor About Protest.
Washington that the American
schooner Sunshine from Galveston
had landed Hinmnnltion at Tampico
for the Mexican Constitutionalists,
without interference on the j art ol
the United States or the Huerta gov-
ernment, was received in official quar-
ters here without comment.
State department and navy depart-
ment officials declined to verify the
feport, but from other sources it was
learned that the presence of the Sun-
shine off Tampico with arms aboard
consigned to the Constitutionalists
had been known to the Washington
government for several days. In
view of the apprehension regarding
the attitude the Cnited States might
take toward the landing of ammuni-
tion at this Mexican port, the actual
delivery without interference was re-
garded as significant.
With the Cuban steamer Antilla en
rente from New York to Tampico,
carrying arms consigned to Carran-
za s forces, there has been much spec-
ulation as t« what the Cnited States
would do in case the Huerta govern-
ment should attempt a blockade of
the port. Every indication, however,
was that the Cnited States would
maintain its previously announced
position that Tampico was an open
No Move at Tampicco.
At night there had been no report
to the navy department that the fed-
eral gunboats had made any move
toward Tampico. though previous re-
ports from Mexico City had declared
Huerta would attempt to prevent the
delivery of ammunition to his enemy.
The movements of arms pending re-
sults of mediation at Niagara Falls
nave been followed by rumors of dis-
approval on the part of the South
American envoys engaged in the ef-
lort to compose the Mexican situa-
Secretary Hrvan has declare,
however, that the state department
had received no protest from the ra-
diators. and he also denied reports
that Mr. Kiano, the Spanish ambas-
sador who represents the interests of
General Huerta in the Cnited States,
had protested against delivery of 11*1
nitlons of war to the Constitutional-
Should Huerta decide to attempt
to stop the delivery of ammunition
aboard the Cuban ship Antilla, inter-
national law requires that notice of
such a blockade be given all foreign
powers through a proclamation.
In diplomatic circles the belief is
general that a decision on the part
of the Cnited States to prevent a
blockade would result in many com-
plications and menace the success of
Carranza Keeps Silent.
Ko messages relating to mediation
were received at the Constitutional
1st headquarters here from General
Carranza. The answer of the Consti-
tutionalist first chTef to the note of
the mediators, it is expected, probab-
ly will not he received before Mon-
Huc-ta Names His Terms.
VERA CUCZ.—The price demanded
by Provisional President Huerta for
his retirement is legalization of liis
official acts as provisional president,
according to advices from the capital.
This is said to have been the pro-
posal General Huerta authorized his
.delegates to offer at the mediation
conference at Niagara Falls.
General Huerta is said to realize
that he has only a slim chance of
winning but lie is understood to be
determined not to abandon power
without adequate provision being
made for protection of his own fu
ture and for that of the men sur-
Await Carranza's Reply.
Washington.—Waiting on Carranza
was the attitude of the Washington
government insofar as progress in
Mexican riediation was concerned. It
was apparent that the Constitution-
alist leader was expected to make
the next move in the diplomatic ne-
gotiations toward composition of
.Mexican affairs, but no word had
come as to what that move would be.
Carranza Delays Answer.
El Paso, Texi—General Carranza
announced through agents here that
he would not make answer to the
communication of the A H C. me-
diators nor issue his proclamation
dealing with the formation of a pro-
visional government in Northern
Mexico until he had reached Saltillo.
