Pico against the delivery of ainmunl
"Jii by the steamer Autllla to the
constitutionalists and averted a new
Moll between the United States und
lie Huerta government, which had
tli- im iied mediation of Mexican af
fairs. Although the Washington officials
expressed satisfaction over Huerta'a
ctiun, it was persistently suggested
outbid,, of official circles that the
blockade had been suspended only
lumluiuually as a result of confer
euces between the South American
nu-iliators and the Mexican and Ainer
lou delegates at Niagara Falls, and
toot tin- Antilla's cargo of arms might
not be delivered at Tampieo' at ibis

Hoilooa situation was brought about
by President Huerta ordering gunboat.-,
to blockade the port of Tampieo
ad to seize a cargo of ammunition
a route there for rebels aboard the
Antlila, from New York, flying the
v'uban flag. Huerta notified the pow
' oi his intention to blockade the
Port and that he proposed to seize
cargo consigned to the belliger
ents against his sovereignty as cou-
"a'laiid of war.
