1 THE MEXICAN INVASION MEXICAN OFFICIALS TREAT THE KJSJLOKT DK1HSIOX General So ward Shows Hovr Im possible It Would Bo for Filibusterers to Capture and llold Lower California CITY oi MEXICO May Dis Francisco Chronicle The story regarding a filibustering expedi tion to Lower California is generally be lieved to have originated from an article published about a month ago in Lrt a Mexican newspaper printed in San Frau cisco in which it was charged that Mamie Sanchez Faeio an exmember of the Mex ican Congress had sinister designs on Lower California and was organizing a tlllbustcr ing expedition to invade itThe story has not been received in full consequently it is not positive that such was thecase though it is claimed by Facios friends that he it too to engage in any scheme tending to give Amer ican supremacy to any part of Mexico At tho Department of Foreign Affairs whore 1 interviewed Manuel Aspires tlio Under sec retary in full charge of foreign relations during the absence of Secretary Ignacia Mariseal there was a smile of derision when the subject of the filibustering expedition mentioned signiiieant of the fact that the Government looked upon the scheme as visionary and beneath much notice Heat once caused the following to be written from dictation in reply to the question as to what action Mexico would take about tho scheme for seizing Lower California What tho Government of Mexico has done in this matter has been to put itself in accord with the Government of tho United States though its Minister at Washington in order to prevent tho execution of any crazy criminal attempts on Lower Cali THE KNGLISII NOT GTJILTV NEW YORK May evening your correspondent had a long talk with one of the most prominent New Yorkers ou tho planned seizure of Lower California This gentleman was formerly connected with tho international Company and ho did much to bring about the transfer to the English capitalists who are now organized as tho Land and Colony Company 1le is a man of wealth and has received high honor from the United States Government but desired that his name should not be meutioncd Ho lwas formerly connected with the Inter national Company of Mexico which was subscqxicntly sold to English capitalists and I ma well acquainted with all the parties interested I can therefore state on the best authority that there is no foundation whatever for tho rumor so far as it con nects the English capitalists with it Ihcy arc nil excellent hightoned honorable and wealthy men and would not allow their reputation to bo soiled by any such at GENERAL FREMONTS VIEWS General John 0 Fremont when asked his opinion of the threatened filibustering movement against Lower California replied I cannot give you any positive information of the subject as it is nine months since I havo beenin California Before I left I had heard somo talk of the project Inero were whispers that somo such movement was on foot It was you might say in tho air It must now of necessity be a failure first because the plot has been exposed and secondly because tho public sentiment in California is adverse to any such a scheme Indeed I cannot see such a scheme could succeedunder any circumstances Now that Mexico has a railroad system that part of the Mexican army stationed in the States of Chihuahua and Sonora could be quickly mobilized and transported across tho Gulf of California to the peninsula where the forces could be landed under the pro tection of the guns of the Mexican manof war They could thus speed ily throw a force into the peninsula which would make short work of the filibusterers Moreover tho latter would have no of supplies to fall back upon for tho TJnited States troops would guard tho frontier of California and prevent their receiving rein forcements or supplies The scheme is a mad one and thoroughly impracticable It has its origin in the wish of certain people to see the peninsula of Lower California annexed to the United States They believe that annexation would mean a rise in the value of land and personal emolument is at the bottom of the whole thing There are always plenty of bold and reckless men about who are ready to embark in just such enterprises The exposure however has nipped the plan in the bud and I fancy no more will be done with IN A RUSSIAN JAIL American Citizen Imprisoned for Thirteen Months YORK May the
