situation continued apparently un-
changed today with Pnaldent Wllaon
and Secretary Bryan awaiting the
Huerta governments Teply to the pre-
liminary note delivered by John I.I ml
to Foreign Minister clam boa outlining
the position of the United Hlatea Mr.
Bryan let It be known that he ex-
pected no reply for a day or two. The
fact that Mr. Llnd had eat&bllahed re-
Utiona with the Huerta government
through Mlnlater Oamboa following
reported declarations which almoal
threatened deportation of President
Wilson's personal representative leads
officials here to take a more favorable
view of the situation.
ronatltutlonaJJats Interested.
Representatives of the Constitution-
alists here are watching developments
with keenest Interest. If Huerta Is
disposed to accept that part of the ad-
ministration proposal looking to elec-
tion that element may come Into the
negotiations.
Consent to TTim-c.
As the Mexican constitution prohib-
it the holding of a general election
during a period of Insurrection to
comply with Prealdent Wilson's desire
for a free and fair election something
would have to be done to Induce the
Constitutionalists to coneet to a truce.
Xo Direct Communication.
80 far It la atated officially the ad-
ministration here has had no commu-
nication directly with the Constitu-
tionalists. The opening of telegraphic
communication between Juares and
the city of Chlhual.ua was announced
today to the state department by the
receipt of a message from American
Consul Letcher confirming the pre-
t ion report from the consul at Jua-
res of the safety of the Hulae family
whose perilous situation led Bejiator
Penrose to address the eenate laat Fri-
