Oral assurances however, have been glvon that they would not bo harmed and tho gensr at opinion Is that tho Washington government will not argue that ques tion further. The understanding among officials Is that President Wilson is willing to withdraw tho American forces, especially In vlow of tho fact that a conflict of Villa and Carrnnza troops In that vicinity might rnlso further embarrassing and dellcato questions for the United States.
