Hill to give him time to intrench at

AMERICAN" TROOPS MAY STAY
Washington Still Has Hopes of 3fe
diation In Mexico.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. American
forces will remain in. Vera Cruz until
the question or authority as between
General Carranza and General Villa is
settled. This was the consensus of
opinion of Administration officials to
night, although no definite announce
ment of the intention of the Washing
ton Government was made.
Secretary Garrison telegraphed Gen
eral Funston at Vera Cruz not to load
any necessary baggage or supplies
aboard the transports, informing him
at the same time that the Americans
would not be withdrawn "for at least
10 days," until certain administrative
questions concerning the transfer of
funds at the customs-house could be
adjusted through diplomatic channels,
Department Issues Statement.
Later the following formal statement
was Issued by the War Department:
"Numerous inquiries were made here
and of General Funston with respect to
ine date or the departure of the Ami-
ican iroops irom vera (Jruz. In view
of the matters which must be first
settled, no date can at present be fixed.
but in no event can the departure take
place within the next 10 days, and
Ueneral Funston was so advised."
Inasmuch as telegraphic communica
tion with Mexico City is irregular. State
Department . officials did not know
when they could reach a satisfactory
unaerstandlng wtih the Carranza gov
ernment Negotiations have proceed
ed to the point of requesting Carranza
to designate orriciais to whom the cu
tom-house might be transferred. The
possibility that General Villa might ob
ject to the American Government's
construction of the Carranza authority
as the central government in Mexico'
is being considered by officials, and in
dications are that the big sum of money
collected for customs by the American
officers will not be delivered to any
juexican faction until there is
definitely established government in
the southern republic.
Agreement Is Still Hope.
-a-amimstration oriicials think an
agreement between villa and Carranza
may be effected through the mediation
of the Mexican leaders, though they
have no reports to this effect, and base
their beliefs on what the two men al
ready have been told of the unfavor
able attitude of the United States
toward further bloodshed In Mexico.
The anxiety of prominent constitu
tionalists In Mexico City to mediate the
dispute is regarded as a hopeful sign
here, just as was General Carranza's
declaration that he would not attack
Villa, but would order his forces merely
to aeiena themselves.
Inasmuch as General Villa's chief
objection to the present government in
Mexico City is the fact that General
Carranza Is Its executive, a basis for
compromise Is thought likely among
of-icials and many Mexicans, because
it is known that Gene, al Carranza in
tended shortly to retire in favor of a
Provisional President acceptable to all
Some observers are disposed to think
that General Villa's threats of a revolt
are designed more as a show of force,
either to prevent Carranza from plac
ing In power as Provisional President
one of his supporters or to diminish
Carranza's chances of being chosen
President In the general election.
Serious Clash Xot Indicated.
While consular reports showed the
Southern republic to be trembling in
fear of another revolution, nothing was
received to indicate that a physical
clash of any Importance was imminent.
President Wilson is absolutely neu Fral
as between the two factions, and Is en
deavoring to have consular agents res
train from involving the American Gov
ernment on the side of either Villa or
Carranza. Whatever efforts the con
sular agents may make will be in the
direction of aiding the two chiefs or
their representatives to reach an un

NEW YORK, Sept. 25. If the South

the Central Pacific Railway, there
would be more competition than there
is now in the opinion of Judge Robert
S. Lovett, chairman of the executive
committee of tne Union Pacific Rail

statement to this erfect was in reply
to questioning by James W. Orr, of
counsel for the Government, at the
hearing today in the Federal suit to
cause the Southern Pacific to give up
control of the Central Pacific.
"The Southern Pacific owns the Cen

the witness. 1
"Does the Southern Pacific control
the operation of the Central Pacific
lines?" he was asked.
"Yes. It operates them."
"Is there much competition between

BOOM IS DISCOURAGED
PRESIDENT WILSON DECLINES IN
DORSEMENT AT HOME.
Fear Is Expressed Country Would
Think Him Vote-Seeker, Is Ac
tion Taken Now.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. At the di
rection of President Wilson, Secretary
Tumulty today wrote a letter to New
Jersey Democrats declining to have
them indorse the President for a second
term. Tumulty's letter was to Edward
E. Grosscup, State Treasurer of New
Jersey. It follows:
"You were generous enough to con
sult me as to whether the Democrats of
New Jersey should at this time Indorse
the President for a second term. I had
a talk with the President about it and
he deeply appreciates the generosity of
the suggestion, but New Jersey is his
home state, the men who would act in
this matter are his own personal
friends, and he feels that it might seem
as if he were taking advantage of the
extraordinary situation now existing to
gain some personal advance through
such an expression of confidence by
"This would be inconsistent with his
whole thought and spirit, and he
shrinks from it as from something that
would embarrass him, rather than help
"He feels confident that you will
know -the spirit in which he says this;
that in urging the Democrats of New
Jersey not to do this be is not abating
in the least his deep appreciation."
The New Jersey Democratic conven
tion is to be held next Tuesday, and
Democratic leaders here say it was
ready to indorse the President for an
other term. Before Mr. Tumulty's let
ter to Mr Grosscup was written Na
tional Democratic leaders were con
sulted. It was understood that the
President took the position that If the
New Jersey Democrats Indorsed him
for another term the country might
think his candidacy had been formally
launched and would think that all his
future acts were designed to gain
votes, ane president Is said to be op
posed to creating such a situation.

NAVAL WAY CITED
Is Secretary Daniels' Idea.
DEFENSE IS CONSIDERED
Appeal for Improvement of Upper
Hudson Also Is Made Before At
lantic Deep Waterways Asso
ciation by Governor Glynn.
ALBANY, N. T.. Sept. 25. What the
proposed great inland waterway from
Massachusetts Bay to the Rio Grande
would mean to the Nation in time of
war was discussed today by Secretary
Daniels of the Navy Department, be
fore the convention of the Atlantic
Deep Waterways Association.
"Not only will this waterway lend
itself tremendously to the development
of internal commerce and tend to bring
down . the rates of transportation,"
said Mr. Daniels, "but it also provides
unusual facilities for self-defense in
time of war.
Naval Advantage Dlacaaaed.
"In any conflict between nations
which have navies, the all-important
consideration Is to secure, if possible,
immediate control of the sea, and the
power which possesses the superior
navy Is usually able to do this. In
such case the navy of the weaker pow
er takes refuge in some deep and well
defended harbor where It seeks to
wear out its enemy by fighting It in
detachments. If this weaker power,
having thus taken refuge In a safe
harbor, can maneuver its ships through
Inland channels to other exits, it en
joys a great advantage."
The principal appeal for the deepen
ing of the upper Hudson was made by
Xorthwnt Outlet Wanted.
"The improvement of the Hudson is
no local enterprise," he said, "for with
the barge canal it links the great lakes
with the ocean and produces a contin
uous waterway from the vast wheat
centers of the Northwest to New York
City and the markets of the world.
Every dollar expended upon the Hud
son will be returned to the people of
the state many times, but in the long
run It will mean a hundred-fold return
to the farmers and manufacturers of
the mighty West, who for half a cen
tury have prayed for a water outlet to
the sea." .
The convention adopted resolutions

provement of our harbors and water
ways manifested' In the Congress of
