Washington. The Huerta adminis
tration in Mexico may reconsider its
rejection of the American proposals to
restore peace in Mexico and arrange
a new basis for negotiation with the'
.United Igtatea .Strong 'intimations 'to
this effect reached official Washington
along with the information that the
financial condition of the Huerta ad
ministration was such that a crisis was

cide to ener, in,to a new basis of dis
cussion,' withdrawing its contention as
expressed, in the Huerta note replying
to the proposals communicated by Mr.
Lind, President Wilson in all proba
bility will not read his message to both
houses of congress, as he intended.
Failure to send any word to the
leaders was interpreted in official cir
cles as meaning that the .United States
had practically given the Huerta gos
erhment time to .make, up its mind
finally as to "what it would do.
It is positively reiterated that the
United States will continue to insist
upon the reslKnatioiL.fl
President Huerta, or an announcement
of his antentlon to do so, as well as
his elimination from the presidential
race irij the subsequent election.
President Wilson spent some time
studying th noteT exchanged' by' Mr.
Lind and Huerta and preparing, his
message. White house officials an
nounced that no copies of the docu
ment would be 'distributed in advance
to the press, as has been $h6' custom
for years, as "it was desirable to keep
tne document aoreas? or. aevejoprrrent?
tcvihe.las minute. -The message-mayf
be t modified, y, ;dispajtchea, eceiypiA
and 'there alsois the ppss.ibilily Jthatl
the president may jjnd it expedient, tp
postpone delivery of the dewument.'
Reports from Mr Lind declare that
his relation with the. Huert. officials
are more cordial than before and that
the Huerta officials manifest a will
ingness to find some new ground for
