of the Mexican people were aware of
the character of president Wilson's
In no quarter did the message arouse
great excitement, as the agent of the

Wilson's announcement of his policy
apparently had not been of sufficient
importance to cause the provisional
president to forego what has been
almost a daily habit.
For days rumors have been current
that General Huerta would resign, or
that he would at least accede to enough
of Washington's demands to lead to a
continuation of the negotiations.
A cabinet minister said today that
General Huerta waa determined not to
quit office and appears to believe that
the pacification of the country could
yet be accomplished by him. As a proof
of the progress already mad In this
direction, the Department of War refers
to the reports of Federal victories In
various parts of the republic and char

Wilson's policy In a light not altogether
unfavorable, since it will result In the
cutting off of supplies to the rebels a
thing upon which the Mexican govern

States has been lax.
So far as the protection of foreigners
is concerned, Mexico takes the stand
that she will do all in her power to
guarantee this. This refusal of the
United States to permit arms and am
munition to reach the Mexican govern
ment through American sources will
not be such a serious handicap to Gen
eral Huerta. as he has already begun
the purchase of supplies from Japan
and has long been receiving consign
ments from Germany and Spain.
The Mexican government Is silent on
the message. The Minister of Foreign
Affairs. Frederlco Gamboa. was ad
vised by private message of the deliv
ery and contents of the message. He
said tonight that the officials of the
Mexican government had no comment
"We are authorizing." the Minister
said, "the publication of the original
notes exchanged, which, I understand,
are contained in President Wilson's
message, and the publication of two
supplementary notes, the latest of
which was sent to Mr. Lind at Vera
Cruz last night."

SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 27. (Spe.
claL) Commencing September 1. San
Francisco Is to have a new evening
paper. While to date there has been
no official anouncement, it is thought
that In place of the Morning Call,
which was bought by M. H. de Young,
of the Chronicle, an evening paper
will be established.
It has already been made known
that the new paper will have the
Hearst news service and some of the
Hearst features. While there has been
a general denial that William Randolph
Hearst is the owner, that seems to be
the accepted idea.
There Is a story going the rounds
that some of the men on the Examiner
are to be transferred to the new paper,
all of which indicates a kindly feeling
on the part of Hearst. It is reported
that those men who are now on the
Call will be provided with positions.
The Bulletin has been publishing
stories to the effect that the sale of
the Call to the Chronicle was nothing
more than a blind end that W. R,
Hearst was really the purchaser. Mr.
M. H. de Young has officially denied
the story and declares that he pur
chased the Call and will retain the

There are already three evening papers,

From an outside standpoint, it doesn't
look as if there Is room for four after

likely be discontinued.
