MISSION GALLED SEDITIOUS
Little Consideration Likely to
Be Shown on Arrival.
NEW ANGLE COMPLICATED
Best That Lind Can Hope For Is to
Be Ignored, Say Officials of
Huerta Regime Oppon
ents Are Skeptical.
MEXICO CITY, Mex., Auk. O. Secre
tary of State Bryan Kent the following
telegram to the American leicatIon to
Yon may lay to the Minuter oC For
elirn Affairs that Governor Lind cornea
to Mexico on a mission of peace and
that the President feel sure bis pres
ence there will contribute toward a
settlement of the difficulties. The Mex
ican Eovernment should await the
'resident's .communication and not
srlve welsbt to misrepresentations pub
lished in sensational newspapers.
The messaxe was delivered to the
MEXICO CITY, Aug-. 6. John Lind,
special representative of President Wil
son of the United States, now. on his
way to Mexico, will be persona non
grata to this government, unless he
brings credentials In due form, "to
gether with recognition of the gov
ernment of Mexico." according to an
official statement issued late tonight.
Manuel Garza Aldape. Minister of
Public Instruction, who is acting as
Minister of Foreign Affairs. Issued the
statement and had it transmitted to
the United States Embassy. It was
also -dispatched by the Mexican gov
ernment to the United States and to
Kurope. The statement follows:
"By order of the President of the
Republic: I declare that if Mr. John
I4(id does not bring credentials in due
form, together with recognition of the
government of Mexico, his presence in
this country will not be desirable."
Antagonism has been aroused among
Mexicans toward President- Wilson's
plan for the pacification of the repub
lic by the latest news from Washing
ton that the object of John Lind's visit
here as the personal representative of
President Wilson is to consult with
prominent Mexicans and advise them
that the only basis on which Mexico
will be recognized by the United States
Is the elimination of President Huerta.
Expulsion Is Talked Of.
Earlier reports that Mr. Lind pur
posed to deal with Huerta, perhaps by
making the direct suggestion that he
resign, were received with Indigna
tion by Mexican officials, and the new
angle of his visit makes it not im
probable thaj lie will be treated with
even less consideration.
Tt was pointed out by a prominent
Mexican today that in the former case
the Government might not consider
itself obliged to act until the sug
gestion was put forward by Mr. Lind,
but that in the second case the Gov
ernment would be justified in charac
terizing him as one who was inciting
Mexicans along lines of sedition and
in applying the pernicious foreign x
pulsion clause of the constitution.
This Mexican also indicated that
since Mr. Lind was coming to Mexico
In an unofficial capacity, and with no
credentials, he could not expect more
consideration or immunity than an or
dinary foreigner would receive.
Huerta "Vot in Receptive Mood.
Officials of the Huerta administra
tion still are firm in their assertion
that no suggestions whatever involving
-mediation or tho resignation of Huerta
will be acceptable and say that the
best that Mr. Lind can hope for in
this respect is to be ignored. How
ever, the anti-Huerta clement, which
is not prominently in evidence in the
capital, is skeptical regarding the firm
stand by the administration.
Alleging that the state of the coun
try is such that it would be impossible
to hold a Presidential election October
27, the date previously set, the Catho
lie convention agreed late tonight not
to nominate a candidate for the Presi
dency. It reserved the right, however,
to reassemble for this purpose in the
event that peace is restored to such an
extent tnat the noiaing ot elections
will become possible.
i ne debate over me resolution not
to nominate a candidate developed an
anti-American speech by a delegate
irom the Federal district of Mexico, who
charged that the condition of the coun
try was due to the non-recognition of
the government by the United States.
The speaker advocated that the conven
tion take no action which further would
divide the Mexican people, who, he said,
should present a. united front In case
of war with the United States.
Rlrvtlons Made Improbable.
The speech met with the approval of
a. large number of the delegates, but it
was opposed by the leader of the fed
eral district organization, who insisted
that the attitude of the Administration
at Washington did not represent the
views of a majority of the American

Midnight Diners Hash to Deck When

NEW YORK, Aug. 6. (Special.) The
steering gear of the giant Imperator,
which docked here today, broke Satur
day shortly before midnight and the
great ship, utterly helpless, made cir
cles half a mile in diameter several
times before she could be", stopped.
There were late diners in the Ritz
Carlton restaurant, but most of the
803 first cabin passengers were in bed
when the steering gear suddenly
snapped. The rudder shifted to port
and the ship took a sudden list to star
board. Drinks and food were thrown
into the laps of the diners. They
rushed on deck in terror to find the
ship beyond control, running at 22
knots in a great circle.
It was found, after the vessel was
stopped, that a glycerine pipe connect
ed with the gear had broken suddenly.
That threw the gear out and made it
unmanageable. The same thing had
happened once before.
The Imperator carried more cabin
passengers than ever crossed the At
lantic before in any vessel. Counting
her crew she had more than 4500 per

BUCHAREST. Aug. 6. Peace was
concluded tonight between the Balkan
states and the preliminary treaty will
oo signed tomorrow by the delegates of
Servia, Greece, Montenegro, Roumani
and Bulgaria. The agreement was
arrived at only after an exhibition of
the utter helplessness of Bulgaria to
face her ring of enemies.
The discussisofis in the peace confer
ence on Wednesday threatened to be
come interminable, but M. Majoresco,
the Roumanian Premier and president
of tht, conference, clinched matters by
threatening that unless Bulgaria ac
cepted the modified frontier proposed
by the allies, Roumanla's army would
occupy Sofia next Saturday. This threat
had the desired effect and an agree
ment was arrived at today after nu
merous private consultations between
A new frontier, as agreed to, starts
at a point on the old frontier west of
the Struma River, follows the water
shed to the west of the town of Stru-
mitza, thence runs almost through the
Struma Valley to the Belesh Mountains
and thence easterly in almost a straight
line to the Mesta River, thus leaving the
town, of Strumitza., the port of Lagos
and Xanthi to BulRitrta and the port
of Kavala to Greece. The new fron
tier is a deepr disappointment to the
Bulgarians, who still nurse hopes for
the eventual revision by the powers.
It is believed that an agreement for
the demobilization of the various ar
mies will be signed tomorrow. The
news that peace had been arranged
caused great rejoicing here.
THIRD AVAR SOW PREDICTED
All Sides Dissatisfied Except Pos
LONDON, Aug. 6. The second Bal
kan peace congress having concluded
peace on a basis of compromise which
is unsatisfactory to all the states con
cerned except possibly Roumania. the
question is being asked how soon a
third Balkan war will break out.
Bulgaria has obtained under the
agreement reached in Bucharest today
a considerable portion of Northern
Macedonia much more than the allios
were at first inclined to give her and
also about 60 miies of the Aegean sea
board, which will enable her to build
her projected railway from Philipoppo
11s to the Aegean.
Bulgaria, however, deeply resents
being deprived of Kavala. a port on
Kavala Bay, which goes to Greece. Also
she is confronted with the task of ex
pelling the Turns from Adrianople, it
being clear that the powers will do
nothing in this direction. Bulgaria will
seek to introduce in the peace protocol
to be signed at Bucharest tomorrow a
reservation practically appealing to tho
European powers for a subsequent re
vision of the peace treaty.
The details of the new frontier line
still are unknown, but apparently the
whole of the disputed country between
the northerly courses of the Vardar
and Struma rivers goes to Servia, in
cluding Ovchepolye, Veles, Istip and
Kotchana, while Demirhissa'r, Seres,
Drama and Kavala fall to Greece.
According to a dispatch to the Daily
Telegraph from Bucharest the order to
demobilize has been promulgated of
The Times says today that Monte
negro will receive from Servia an ex
tension of territory east and south
corresponding to the aid Montenegro
rendered Servia in the war with Bul
garia. It adds that Vodena and Fiorina
will be Greek, as also will be the Sa-
loniki-Monastir Railway to within
about 25 kilometers of its head. The
newspaper considers the treaty of
Bucharest will only be a provisional
settlement of the difficulties. It says
that both Russia and Austria are op
posed to Greece's having Kavala and
that the powers are almost certain to
insist on a revision of the treaty to
meet their views.
The correspondent of the Times at
Sofia points out that Bulgaria must
keep her forces under arms to meet
the Turkish menace, in which case her
enemies will refuse to demobilize. Both
the Bulgarian and Servian armies,
however, according to the correspond
ent, are displaying a growing impa
tience and demand either to be led
against the enemy or to be allowed to
return to their homes.
