from this time without interruption.
Officers All On Villa's Side.
The internecine dispute in. the Mexl-
can revolutionary ranks, while media
tion at Niagara Falls rested, had
stirred officials here, but Consul Ed
wards' message served to relieve anxi
ety." Other official" dispatches' received
were to the effect that all the princi

ment sided with Villa in his differences
with the constitutionalist first chief
ever methods of procedure in the cam
paign, and that Carranza had agreed
that Villa should take supreme com
mand in the military operations against
the Huerta government.
According to the official dispatches,
the difference between Carranza and
Villa arose over the attack on Zacate
ras. General Carranza, it was said, in
sisted that General Natera should lead
the assault and mapped out plans
which Villa did not support. Villa in
sisted, according to reports, that the
leader of the constitutionalist forces
was being Influenced by ambitious pol

and determined that the only way to
meet the situation was to resign his
command as chief of the military forces

Immediately following his restora

trouble between himself and Carranza.
- Official dispatches to the Washington
Government made no mention of this,
but the agents of General Carranza
here are said to understand the situa
tion thoroughly, and in some official
quarters the action of Villa was com
mended. General Angeles' Ability Shown.
This turn in events also was regard
ed as emphasizing the prominence and
ability of General Angeles, whose name
has been sanctioned by the United
States as one of the available men for
provisional president of Mexico if
mediation can bring the desired re
sults. Rufael Zubaran and Luis Cabrera,
the constitutionalists' representatives
in Washington, who cdnferred yester
day at Buffalo with the American
commissioners to the mediation con
ference, returned here early today and
maintained silence both as to their
mission and concerning the Villa
Carranza break. It was reported, how
ever, that they had been asked par
ticularly about the qualifications of
" General Felipe Angeles for the provis

It also was reported that when the
mediators resume their conference
with the Huerta delegates and the rep
resentatives from the United States on
Friday General Angeles' name will be
proposed to succeed Huerta, pending
an election. General Villa is declared
to be in sympathy with this move, and
