Departments Told to Hold Forces Ready for Mexican Service
at Moment's Notice Other Powers Weary of Disorder and
Demand United States Do Something John Lind Planning
Last Effort to Deal With H uerta President Wilson Will
Recognize Neither Huerta Nor His Lieutenant, Blanquet.
Washington, Oct. 30. All indications
were today that the United States will
be fighting for peace in Mexico within
a few more days.
President Wilson ordered both army
and navy departments to hold their
forces ready for Mexican service at a
moment's notice.
The president would prefer recogniz
ing General Oarranza, the Mexican reb
el leader, and letting the Mexicans
fight out their diffoveuoes between
Other powers are weary of disorders
in Mexico, however, think the United
States can stop them more quickly than
C'arranza and probably ' will bring
strongor pressure to bear than the pros
idont can resist.
Draft of Policy Beady.
' The president had completed a draft
of his new Mexican policy today, but
did not intend to submit it to the cabi
not until next week.
Ho delayed bocause he wished to see
what the new Mexican congress will do
when it moots Saturday.
It was bolieved the Mexican congress
will declare votes cast for Huerta void,
since the constitution does not permit
him to Biiccoed himself, and declare
General Blanquet president.
If this development occurs Prosidout
Wilsou will announce that he will rec
ognizo neither Huerta nor his lieuten
ants, of whom Blanquet is one, and out
line a policy which it was bcliovod to
day would moan American intervention.
It wns understood on all bauds that,
though America may intervene in Mex
ico, it will withdraw as soon as order
has been restored.

The city election is a sii-day-go-as-yoU'plcac

of those who are really candidates and
the following is the mult:

with Huerta. Pointing out the hopeless
ness of his position, he intended to ask
the dictator to agree to an armistice

under some other provisional president,
if the factions can agree on one, or un
der American supervision if they can
not. He had small hope that Huerta
would agree.
