MEXICO CITY, May 11. (Special
tarrespondence.) -In the eyes of all
toe world, except those of our sister
publics of Latin America, I am
oked on and denounced as a dictator
id usurper, when, in all political

tended by God and destiny, and turn
aer the affairs of our troubled coun-

itlilude toward the Spanish Ameri

nany of its acts in the past could
le construed as indicating an assump

latter word, I, of course, refer to the

"Mexico wants to be on terms of close
friendship, even affection, with the
great American Government and people,
and I am certain a like desire is found
among the peoples of Spanish-America

undoubtedly anil universally exists is
surely tempered with a fear that Uncle
Sam wants to rule and run more terri
tory than he has actually under his
"lu the present disastrous condition
of affairs, I feel certain that Central

largely with Melco. Of course it
would not be right and honorable for
any person to construe this statement
as reflecting in the smallest way the
views of te mediators appointed by
Argentina, Brazil and Chile to adjust
the slight difficulties between the
American and Mexican governments.. I
could not want so to offend good taste
as to comment one way or the other
on the questions to be discussed by
these eminent gentlemen, or upon
what I might believe to be their opin

are high ambassadors and are men of
such standing that whatever their rec

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont., May 24. In
the hope of seeing a provisional gov
ernment that the United States can
recognize established in Mexico before
the rebels seize the city, the Pan
American mediators are preparing for
the crisis in their deliberations, which
is expected this week.
Should the Huerta government col
lapse as the rebel army approaches, it
is realized that a condition of chaos and
anarchy would result. The Mexican
delegates believe a government ,cet up
by the rebels cannot last' long if un
recognized by the United States and
World Powers. They declare a new
revolution would be inevitable.
American Influence Itelled On.
Should Carr.inza still be in the field
when an agreement is reached here, it
is the opinion of the mediators that
the influence of the United States may
be relied on to bring the constitutional
ists to terms. The eetablishment of a
junta is considered, it is said.
The mediators are understood to ex
pect that even if the rebels do reach
Mexico City before an agreement is
reached, the United States Government
will not recognize them until princi
ples for' the- pacification ot the country,
are agreed to. . ,
From the conference here is expected
to come a declaration of principles on
which a provisional government will be
based. This the United States and the
World Powers will be expected to rec
ognize. Choice Left to United States.
The mediators disclaim any intention
of dictating the choice of a provisional
president. Suggestions will be made by
the Mexican delegates, but the final
choice will be left to the United States.
The proceedings have already reached
the stage at which several names have

LONDON, May 24. With the home

and and become a law within the next
48 hours, the eyes of England are now
turned on Ulster.
The threat of civil war In Ireland be

Dublin is engrossing the attention of
the nation. With the crisis so close at
hand, Ulster has made arrangements
to assemble the provisional government
and mobilize the well-armed volunteers

have been distributed and plans com

at a moment's notice. According to the

Londonderry and Tyrone are danger

It was thought that the Ipswich elec

lately appointed Chancellor of the
Duchy of Lancaster, was defeated by
the Unionist candidate, might influence
the Cabinet and take a different course,
but this hope was dissipated tonight by
a letter from the Right Honorable Her
bert Samuel, Postmaster-General, In
which the minister, quoting the figures
of 42 by-electlons since the bill was
introduced in 1902, sets up the claim
that 236,000 electors voted for the can
didates who were pledged to home rule,
and 201.000 electors voted for the can
didates opposed to home rule. He con
cludes his letter by saying:
"I do not know on what ground the
principle can be contended that the
Judgmenl of 17 constituencies, with
201,000 voters, should be accepted and
the Judgment of 25 constituencies, with
