WASHINGTON, May 1«— While
Huerta's delegates to tho Niagara Fall
conference were hurrying northward
the capital today. President Wilson and
hla advisers awaited an answer to the
demand on federal officials In Mexico
City for news of the fate of Parks, the
American seller, who In full uniform
strayed Into Huerta's lines while probab-

declared his body had been burned.
The note for Huerta, declaring that

the wake of two other communications.

Wilson and Secretary Bryan as sent to

The first of what 1b expected to be a
series of arreats In Indian guardianship
cases where misappropriation of minors'
funds Is alleged was made Saturday
when James J. Mars, a prominent lawyer
was tak<?n In custody on an information
procured by Nat Ligon. assistant Creek
national attorney, charging "false evi-
dence in reports."
The warrant for his arrest was served
on Mars as he lay ill at hla home. He
waa not placed in Jail, but was ordered
by the sheriff to report to the county
court not later than -Monday.
In connection with the same case,
Mlcco Gehen, a fullblood Creek, recently

Probate Attorney Ligon that he knew

dian physician, claims he never rendered
any services to the minor Bobbins and
never took any money as payment for
services supposed to have been rendered.
The prosecution, which was ordered by
National Creek Attorney Judge R. <?.
Allen, Is the result of the filing of a
complete rtport by Robbins who recently

While the Parka case hasumed threat-
ening proportions, another stumbling
block In the path of mediation was re-
moved. That was the report of the Brit-
ish embassy from Sir I«ionel Carde in
Mexico City stating John R. Silllman, the
American vice consul, over whose safety
there had been grave f^ ars. was on his
way from Sa'tillo to Mexico City. There,
it was assumed, he would be turned
over to the Braslllan legation for safe
conduct tu the American lines at Vera
Crux. Silllman had been arested by fed-

.(International News Bervlce.)
WASHINGTON, May 16.—'These sig-
nificant developments occurred In the
Mexican crisis today:
1. The state department Indi-
cated that It will make no terms
with Huerta—In other worda, no
"conditional" retirement will tw
acceptable to the United Statea.
2. The state department aald
also that the action of the British
admiral, Sir Christopher Cradock,
and his entire Btaff in making a
formal call on the constitutional-
ist general, Gonzales, may be re-
garded as recognition by Great
Britatln of the belligerency of the
constitutionalists. A similar atep
on the part of the United Statea
is expected In a few daya.
3. The failure of Huerta to ex-
plain the fate of Consul Silllman,
Correspondent Doster and Private
Parka, has brought about a situ-
ation ao acute that orders for the
embarkation of mote troops at
Galveston for Vera Cruz are ex-
pected at any moment.
4. The feeling In Washington
Is strong today that the president
is about to address a communica-
tion to congress on the subject.
Must Get Out.
The opinion of the administration
Is that Huerta Is In no position "to
dictate terms to anybody" He must
get out, and in getting out he must
sever his connection entirely with the
administration of Mexico's affaire.
The belief of the president and his
most capable advisers Is that Huerta
will hold on a little longer and thai
he has already made his arrangements
to leave Mexico.
