By the Crated Pross Associations. Washington, D. C., Aug.- icans are fleeing from Mexico. Dis- patches prove this. As a result this government is securing a decided ad- vantage. Should the mission of John bind fail, the embargo on arms to insurgents can be removed without fear of bloody reprisals on innocent Americans. If bind fails and the em- bargo is removed so the rival factions can settle their dilferences this gov- ernment wants Americans out ot Mexico. So the consular represent- atives have been directed to persuade all those not having interests hold- ing to leave. The greatest fleet of warships on the east and west coasts are to aid in the work and it will be nearly completed before Lirid can tell what measure of success is to greet his efforts. The only word received trom Lind today was that everything was pro- ceeding satisfactorily. His visit to the minister oi foreign relations was purely formal. Lind will interview leading Mexicans and use them as much as possible. As his instructions are elastic he will not report till something definite has been accomplished.
