Secretary Garrison cabled General

General Maaa. the Mexlctoi com-
mander a full explanation of tbe
death of Private Parka who strayed
Into the Mexican linea aarveral days

execution of Parka and the alleged
burning of his body haa boon made
also through diplomatic channela to
General Huertpv Secretary Garrison
huida that aa Parka was In uniform
he should have been treated as a
prisoner of war. General Funaton
thinks Parka waa lriaane.
Mr. Garrison aleo asked General
Funaton for a farther report on the
detalla of the arrest or the live Bourn
Americans accuaad of "sniping" at
American R-tmraajcaHatlrrH Limited.
Theae were the chief developments
In tbe Mexican situation today. The
mttdiators were busy preparing for
ihelr departure and Counsellor ten-
sing spent much time with the Amer-
ican representatives. familiarising
them with the (tuatlon. Mr. Ian-
sfng said that the status of the Amer-
ican representatives would he unof-
ficial as they would bear no creden-
tials and would not have plenipoten-
tiary powers. All fsteps would be re-
ferred for final dectslop to the presi-
dent und secretary of state Ht Wash-
ington. Development at Tamplco.
Outside of the Interest In ine
progress of the mediation the de-
velopments at Tamplco injected many
new phasea Into the situation. The
physical certainty that the constltu-
tlonallats would he In control of Tam-
plco made It apparent that the I'nited
States would be In a position to bring
about a return of normal conditions
In the oil district. Negotiations with
the constitutionalists to permit Amer-
ican and other foreign employ aa to
return to the wells are to begin as
sobn aa newa of occupation by the
conetltutlonalisla Is received. An-
other phase of the situation which
produced much dlacuaslon In execu-
tive quarters was the question of am-
munition ahlpments destined for

Placing him in charge of General
