to make the announcement.

Conservative authorities, however,
are unwilling to believe that even the

Mexico's defiant attitude would pro

the government would give Nelson
O'Shaughnessy, the American Charge

of the United States not complying
with President H'uerta's demand. They
pointed out that such action did not
follow when Huerta refused to con

Wilson several months ago.
Huerta then drew the line between
ambassadors having full power and an
ambassador having the power to trans,
