WASHINGTON. July 7. There were
Indications here tonight that the case
acainst General Huerta." charged with
conspiracy to violate the neutrality of
the United States by starting a new
Mexican revolution, might be aban
Huerta Is due to appear before a
United States Commissioner for a hear
ing next week. Althougrff officials are
reticent, persistent reports are current
that there will be no prosecution and
that Huerta will agree to leave the
Mexican border and take up his resi
dence somewhere In the northern part
of the United States, to interfere no
more in Mexican politics.
It was pointed out tonight In official
quarters that such a settlement would
accomplish the chief end desired by the
Government prevention of Huerta's re
turn to Mexico to complicate the situa
tion there still further.
News of the result of Carranza's
latest attempt to drive the Zapata gar
rison out of Mexico City was awaited
with anxiety tonight by officials of
the American Government. No word
from the fighting has come since it
was announced, two days ago, that the
Carranza army under General Gonzales,
reinforced after its repulse on June
25, had renewed its attack with the
expectation of an easy victory.
Carranza to Aid Foreigners,
Apprehension felt on account of the
foreign colony in the capital was some
what relieved in th course of the day
by the receipt of a dispatch at the State
Department from Vera Cruz saying the
investing Carranza forces intended to
facilitate attempts of foreigners to
quit the city and to transmit their
messages to the outside world.
Measures for the relief of non-combatants
in the republic were continued
today as far as conditions permitted.
Consul-General Hanna at Monterey re
ported to the Red Cross that he was
feeding 16,000 persons from American
Eliseo Arredondo, Carranza's agent
in Washington, reiterated in a state
ment tonight that in those sections of
Mexico over which Carranza had con
trol there was no famine danger a.nd
"no shortage of foodstuff supplies so
serious as to threaten hunger, even to
the poorest of our population in the
future, immediate or distant."
Blocking of Relief Denied.
The contention between the Red
Cross and officials of Villa's agency
here over the attitude of Villa's of
ficers toward relief measures resulted
in a statement tonight from the agency
declaring the Villa forces had offered
every aid in their power to alleviate
suffering in war-disturbed districts.
Miss Mabel Boardnun. of the Red
Cross, asserted there had been lack of
co-operation by botli Villa- and Car
ranza officers to forward supplies, ex
cept at such isolated places as Mon
terey and Monclova. She added that
where co-operation was not forthcom
ing the Red Cross, for the time being,
would take no action.
The Carranza agency announced the
receipt of a dispatch declaring the
Villa army had been completely routed
by the Carranza forces at Villa Carvia,
between Monterey and Paredon. Villa
forces were said to have suffered
lows of 600 killed and wounded. The
agency added that a second f tprht near

and special trains and streetcars have
been kept in readiness to carry away

tional palace. Many wounded soldiers
have been brought into the hospitals
The outposts of the convention forces
are now at Barrientos, on the Grand
Canal, Los Reyes and Xochimilco. The
advance guards of the Carranza forces
penetrated the outskirts of the capital,
liberating 400 prisoners from the Peni
tentiary and several political refugees
from the Tacuba Jail, but later were
driven back about three miles.
Business in the capital has been
paralyzed since the siege operations
began, the fear being expressed that
there would be a general looting of
the city shoruld the constitutionalists
succeed in capturing It. Mobs parading
the streets call on the inhabitants to
fight with the convention troops.

Officials here, therefore, were not
surprised to learn that Hi recruits
held up In Portland. Or.. Had been al

of the Government are to be directed
chiefly toward the conviction on the
charge of violation of the neutrality
laws or the three or four representa
tives of the Montenegrin government
charged with Inducing their country
men to enlit and return home.
Activity of the department leadlnar to
these arrests is a part of a general ef
fort to prevent enlistments In the
United States for the armies of bellig
erent European nations. Evidence so
far discovered points to violations In
enlistments for the British and Monte
negrin armies, and Government agents
are keeping close watch on reported
attempts to recruit for Italy.
ord was received today at the de

ed in San Francisco against five men
charged with securing recruits in the

the return of Englishmen for military
service, even where free passage Is ex
tended, floes not constitute a violation
of United States law unless there Is an

Most of the reservists are veterans
of the Ralkan wars. None of them
have been in this country for over two
years. The youngest of the party Is
19 and the oldest about 50.
Whether or not they will be de
tained by Federal authorities as Monte

known. If detention occurs anywhere
It will be at Seattle or Bellingham.
