Mflffco City, March 20. According
to information given by the private
secretary of President Huerta the dis
covery of a letter in the National Pal
lace yesterday 'foiled a plot by the
members of the presidential body
guard to assiassnatc Huerta last night.
The secretary said the government had
the names of persons who paid mem
bers of the bodyguard a huge sum ot
kill Huerta.
"No arrests have been made so far,"
he added, "but a full investigation is
being conducted ' with probably will
result in arrests of prominent Madcr
ists and a ho of those who took blood

A cabled report of the assassination
: 'Was published by some news
! here today, including a de
scription of the midnight scene in
which officers, crossing their swords
over Madcro's grave, swore to avenge
the martyr's death. All of this the
secretary pronounced ridiculous.

that Inez Salacar will continue in rc-

join a column now on its way to So

intended for the Sonora campaign will

the action begun earlier in the month
by Richmond liquor dealers to secure
relief from the operation of the Webb

destined for South Carolina, came from
Washington yesterday in the form of
a statement credited to ' Attorney,

Such a statement, it is reported,' was
made by Attorney-General McReynolds

Washington, March 20. In an officia
statement o policy today Secretary of
War Garrison declared in favor of im
mediate preparation of the military
forces of the United States, to meet any
emergency, holding a discussion of dis
armament by international agreement
to be entirely out of place in the con
sideration of what the United States
governement should do to meet existing
conditions. The secretary proposed re
tention of the regular array at its pres
ent strength, improvement of the na
tional guard and creation of a 'reserve.
Declaring that be was not urging
militarism, Mr Garrison said the
leading men in the United States army
do not advocate militarism, which
means the existence of a large standing
army, compact, but thoroughly effi
cient army.

said, could not seriously suggest that

Brown & Sons, in discussing it, said:
"No one who knows the President
of who has follocwd closely his public
utterances and acts will be surprised
at the stand he has taken on this ques
tion. It is an issue in which a slight
misstep now might lead to awkward
and disagreeable complications here
after. But he has met the question
boldly and, I think, properly, and has
made his views known in a logical and
torilcetul way that cannot be mis
understood. It can be taken as a
dogma of his administration, I think
that under his rule there will be no
partnership, quasi or otherwise, be
tween the Government and private
banking institutions.
"That is what the sanction of the
Administration at Washington would
have meant and President Wilson told
the bankers he would stand behind
them in making this deal with China.
It would have placed this country, in
a position which might have greatjjj
embarrassesd it in some future negotia
tion with the Chinese Government.
We could not have been free to act
in all matters if we occupied the po
sition of having given a quasi guar
antee to Chinas debt. this would
make us in a measure responsible for
the payment of the interest and prin
ciapl to those of our ownpeople who

They might seek concessions here and
there to their own advantage and may
be not at all times forthe best develop
nient of that country. These privileges
might not always meet with the ap
proval of the Chinese, who may go to
the p'oint of protesting vigorously.
Then what would be our position?
The President has clearly seen all
these possiblities and has met them
like a patriot and a statesman. His
act has my hearty approval, i am
more Convinced now than ever that
the affairs of State are in safe and
