WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 25.
Tho cabinet reached no decision on
tho Mexican situation today, accord

who presided. Both the cases of
William .0. Jenkins, American con

conditions in Mexico were discussed,
the secretary said.

TO DEFER INTEREST
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 25.
Tho answer of tho Mexican govern
ment to the note demanding imme
diate release of William O. Jenkins,
Amorlcan consular agent at Pueblo,
probably will bo delivered to tho
stato department today.
A long dispatch, bearing on tho
Jenkins case, it was learned, has been
received at the Mexican embassy,
and was being decoded. While au
thoritative Information as to the at-
tltudo of tho Mexican government
was lacking, all indications pointed
to a technical refusal to order the
release of Jenkins. Since his arrest,
It was learned, additional charges
against tho American official have
been formulated, based upon alleged
evidence that 'he actively assisted
persons in rebelling against the Car
ranza government. Payment of a
largo sum of money to tho robols,
which was used to purchase muni
tions, and acting in collusion with
rebel leaders, are said to bo specific
"counts in the new indictments."
What was regarded as a hint of
Mexico's position in tho Jenkins case
was noted In an article published by
tho Mexican newspaper, Excelsior, a
copy of which has reached Washing
ton. Tho paper declared Jenkins'
second arrest was based on charges
that ho activoly assisted the rebels.
The "certain sum of money" which
Jenkins is accused of delivering to
the rebels was tho 300,000 pesos he
was compelled to pay as ransom to
Federico Cordova, tho rebel whoso
forces kidnaped him. Tho collusion
charge Is based upon tho fact that
Jenkins ngreed to pay tho rebel lead
er the ransom to save his life
