elpatfon of an attack on the city by the
Kirasoia and Bravo, the work of erect'
Ins; fortifications at the river month ts

WASHINGTON. June 7. A new crisis
In the Mexican situation, faced the
Washington Government tonight. It
was a situation fraught with perils
for mediation and with possibilities
that might precipitate war between the
United States and Mexico.
General Huerta brought about the
crisis by ordering gunboats to blockade
the port of Tampico and to seize
cargo of ammunition en route there for
rebels aboard the Antilla, from New
York, flying the Cuban flag. Huerta
has notified the powers of his Intention
to blockade the port and that he pro
poses to seize the cargo consigned to
the belligerents against his sovereignty
as contraband of war.
Daniels) Issues Statement.
The purpose of the United States
to suppress the attempt to blockade
and prevent Interference with the An
tilla was Indicated tonight when Sec
retary Daniels Issued an official state
xnent announcing that while no new
orders had been given Admiral Badger,
there had been no change In the policy
cf the Government in. reference to the
desire that the port of Tampico shall
be open to all commerce. The state
"The Navy Department has Issued
re new orders to Admiral Badger since
the Mexican gunboats were reported
to be leaving Puerto Mexico. The
Department has at no time contem
plated furnishing a convoy to the An
tilla, or any other ship, nor have any
orders to that effect been Issued.
Policy Is Not Changed.
"No word whatever has been received
as to whether warships of other na
tions have been notified of the block
ade at Tampico. or what their attitude
would be toward ouch a blockade.
There has been no change In the pol
icy of the Government In reference to
its desire that the port of Tampico
shall be open to all commerce."
As to whether "all commerce" in
this Instance includes contraband of
war, no official of the government will
discuss. As far as Is known, the only
orders relating to Tampico that have
been issued went to Admiral Badger
on May 18 In the form of a message
Informing him that while it was not
believed that Huerta gunboats would
return to Tampico, it was deemed ad
visable that the commanders of Amer
ican naval vessels understand that
the Government desired that there be
no Interference at that port. '
Huerta Gunboats Mean Business.
That an attempt to carry out the
Huerta blockade decree will be made
was verified today by Admiral Badger
In a report to the Navy Department
from Vera Cruz. He advised that the
ilexican gunboats Zarogoza and Bravo,
which left Puerto Mexico last night,
had passed Vera Cruz and were steam
ing toward Tampico. The American
cruiser Tacoma and gunboat Sacra
mento are following the Huerta ships.
What the ships will do when the
commander of Huerta's ships attempts
to seize the Antilla when she arrives
st Tampico Wednesday, no official In
Washington would say.
The message from Admiral Badger
received by the Navy Department to
"Ten A. M. Sunday, June 7. Position

Father Bernard Vaughan had just

The congregation, shocked by the
