BANDITS OK RAMPAGE (By United Press) WASHINGTON. ? Two develop ments today closely followed each other and thrust the Mexican situa tion Into the foreground. The first was the unsolicited state ment from the State Department that the unrest In northern Mexico waB growing and that as a result, atten tion was once more focused toward the border. The second announcement wan made by Secretary Lansing when hi called a conference of American members of the Mexican-American I Commission at an early date. Early this afternoon no word had been received as to whether Carrama hsd signed the troop withdrawal pro tocol. The Department declares thai U 6 aa in f orjaat tha*. large groups of bandits^ lire on a. rampage such as to give the depart ment fresh concern. The Department also suspetcs that Villa is getting all the arms that he needB across the border. Those in touch with the Department's maneuvres are Inclin ed to believe that emphasis on the Mexican situation today was Intended to prepare the -public for possible i.erious developments.
