ended So peacefully. The fclexlcahs,
pleased to have shown the whole civil

the whole affair, t appreciate the ef

Govei-nment which made it possible
for the occupation to end this way."
Brigadier-General Funston and his
command of 6000 infantrymen and ma
Hnea, which was landed here eh Ap"rll
30 last, effected the evacuation of the
city without any clash occurring be
tween the Americans and the native
army. The Mexicans marched In on the
heels of the departing troops, but no
serious disturbance of the city's peace
was registered during: their entrance.
General Carranza was quoted by rep
resentatives here as being displeased
with the method of the Americans of
delivering over the city, and as having
criticised them sharply for falling to

Communication between Vera Cruz

Ambassador Asks Washington Re
garding Mexican Affairs.
WASHINGTON, Nov, 83. Anxiety for
the safety of French and British sub
jects and their interests in Mexico City
brought Sir Cecil Spring Rice, the Brit
ish Ambassador, and Jules Jusserand,
the French Ambassador, to the Statj
Department today to learn What the
American Government knew of the sit
uation In the Mexican capital, Reports
to the State Department showed condi
tions as having improved.
Mr. Jusserand also inquired What dis
position had been made of the $1,000,099
in customs duties collected by the
American forces which evacuated Vera
Cruz today. He was Informed by Act
ing Secretary Lansing that the money
was taken away by General Funston's
forces, and that no decision had been
reached as to its disposition,
French bondholders have a lieh on
practically all the customs duties at
Vera Cruz. Gne loan gave them 62 per
cent of the customs receipts, and
Huerta negotiated a loan giving them
the remaining 38 per cent. The latter
transaction has been declared Invalid
by the Carranza government, and
French bondholders feared that it the
customs fund were given to General
Aguilar, who took possesion today in
the name of Carranza, the obligations
Would be ignored.
It virtually is certain that urtlti a.
government Is recognized in Mexico
which has arranged for an adjustment
of all financial difficulties of the re
public, the fund from Vera Cruz wili
be kept by the United States. '
Acting Secretary Lansing gave the
two Ambassadors the substance of the
State Department dispatch, eaytng that
while the residents of the capital were
in a panic Friday and Saturday, fear
ing that the city would be sacked and
looted by forces of Zapata and Villa
after the Carranza troops withdrew,
conditions since then had changed and
the capital was quiet.
The Ambassadors had received Word
from their ministers in Mexico City
giving an optimistic view tf the situa
tion. The British legation telegraphed
that a circular was being distributed
announcing that on the evacuation by
the Carranza forces the Villa and
Zapata troops would begin a period of
looting at certain hours. Acting Bec
retary Lansing said that the depart
ment had heard of these circulars, and
he was strongly inclined to believe they
were the woric of enemies of both Villa
end Zapata. He took this view because.
In response to ah inquiry made last
Friday about rumors of possible disor
ders when the Villa troops reached the
capital. General Villa himself issued
general orders stating that any Soldiers
caught molesting women or stealing
would be summarily shot.
Many officials of the Washington Gov
ernment who follow events in Mexico
closely were of the opihiolh that the
arrival of the Villa force in Mexico
City probably would end all apprehen
sions and place the city In better order
than it had been in months.

VERA CRUZ. Nov. 23.-General Cah-
aido Aguilar, who succeeded Brlradler-
General Frederick Funston today as
military governor of Vera Crux, did not
mince words when, through his chief
oolice. Theodore Frezieres, he told
the residents of this eity that any dis
turbance of the "peace, whether It be
picking pockets or any of the grayer
crimes, such as Sacking would result
the execution of the offending In
The proclamation containing this
declaration was circulated through the
streets as. General Agullar's forces
were arriving. The decree provides
that all arms must be turned in to the
authorities within 24 hours and any
failure to comply with the order will
cause the shooting of anyone in whose
ossession a gun was found.
Americana "May Set Permit.
This lat statement caused W. W.
Canada, the American Consul, to call
at the police station, where he told
Chief Frezieres that many Americans
ad deposited their arms with him.
The Consul was told that General Agui
lar had no Intention of demanding
them, and in fact expected the Consul
to use his discretion in holding the
arms of . any Americans. Americans
are not exempt from the order, but in
cases where the authorities are con-
vlnced that their standing warrants
It, they will be given permits.
Vera Cruz Is to go on the list of pro
hibition cities, at least tem'perarily. Oh
entering the city the Mexicans found
the Saloons closed in accordance with
the Order Issued by General Funston
yesterday. This was heartily approved
and under a hew order Issued today .
the saloons will remain closed "until
further orders."
General Aguilaf issued another oroc--
lamatloh In which he calls on the peo
ple ofVera Cruz to assist him in the
maintenance of order. The General as
sures them of his intention to furnish
guarantees of safety "i... il residents,
Mexicans and foreigners, i all classes.
veh td those opposed to the cause."
More Troops Are Due,
The entrance of the 4000 men now
garrisoned here was effected as tjuietly
as was General Funston's withdrawal.
Beyond the suburbs of the city there
are many more troops than are already
here, and it .Is expected that several
thousand of these soldiers will be here
before the 'end of the week. It is be
lieved that General Carranza may ar
rive any day to establish headquarters
here, though hot even Minister of For-
elgn Affairs Fabela-, who accompanied
General Augilar into Vera Cruz, was
well informed oh this point.
Little enthusiasm was displayed on
the entrance of the native forces' into
Vera Cruz. The tendency of almost
all the people, especially those of the
better class, was to remain safely with
in doors. Stores were closed through
out the city.
The public was given an opportunity
to see and to hear G'eneral Aguilar
shortly after hi3 arrival. The General
Foreign Minister Fabela and Luis San
chez Ponton, ex-Governor of the fed
eral district, made short speeches from
the balcony of the municipal palace.
General Aguilar merely called upon
the people to assist him In the main
tenance of order, adding that he was
not an adherent of General v ilia or
General Carranza so much as he Was a
Senor Fabela was more outspoken.
He unreservedly praised General Car
ranza and denounced General Villa as
a traitor. Loud shouts of viva car
ranza" answered him.
Cheers Stteed lunston Home.
General Funston's shio. the transport
Cristobal, was the last to leave Vera
Cruz. She slipped her cables at 1:50
o'clock this afternoon and passed In
review the other transports which had
been drawn up In parade formation in
the channel.
As the Cristobal's anchor was drawn
up a band on eck began playing ana
to the music She moved forward, carrr-
Ing for the first time General Funston's
two-starred flag. From her attermast
there was flung to the breeze the long
homeward bound pennant and the hun
dreds of officers and men on deck be

Consul Canada stood on the balcony
of the consulate with a group oi men
and women friends. All were searching
the decks of the transports with field
glasses, while on the decks the officers
