About two hundred men are aC-tecled, A contercnce of ambassadors of the European powers was held in Paris in the middle of May to discuss the Mexican situation. The conference was held in lhe;Freneh foreign olBcer The confere^:Ji,a(l before them reports frbm the teiiresenta-tive2 in Mexico of their respective governments. These reports were in substantial. agreement as to the facts. The figures showing the number of subjects of each government residing in iSlexico and amount of money invested in Mexico by the peo-\\q of each European government were before the conference. It. appeared that the 'joint invc.itments of Europe in Mexico greatly exceeded tlie total investment of American money in Mexico. , ? , Before making intimation to the United States it was decided to send special representatives to Mexico to check up the reports received and also to require the diplomatic representatives in Mexico to send in special rep.orts as to the latest developments and prospects. The reports of the diplomatic representatives and the special agents were duly made, and three weeks ago the ambassadors reconvened in Paris to consider the reports. It was found that affairs in Mexico were in a hopeless condition. Huerta was ! found to he unable to crush Carran-za and Maytoreiia, and the latter were not able to dislodge Huerta. Brigandage was reported to be rampant^ throughout the republic. Representations had to be made to the United States. Ways arid means of making these representations' most effective ind at the same time least oflensive were discussed. It was agreed that France should speak for the powers. France thereupon formally sent forth the state of afiairs in Mexico as aRecting European interests. It asked the United States to take immediate, action to remedy the situation.. It intimated that decisive action within thirty days would he highly gratifyinji. President Wilson immediately instructed Amba.ssador Wilson to come to Washington. Ambassador Wilson did not agree with President Wilson as to the recognition of Huerta. The ambassador held that the best solution would he to recognize Huerta and thus enable him to borrow money with which to put forces in tho field capable .of criishing the rebels. The only alternative to this 'plan was to intervene, in his opinion. President Wilson did not take kindly to ths idea Of recognizing Huerta under any circumstances, and he was �particularly opposed to the, suggestion that the t/nited States "sho'uld virtually become a partnbr With Huerta in crushirig the rebels. ^ The President and Secretary Bry-' an are casting about for a plan that' will bring peace in Mexico without recognition of Huerta and Without intervention. They must decide within a few days whether the United States sliall pacify Mexico or whether they shall acquiesce in the landing of armed forces in Mexico by the European j:overnment., may become master'of chambers Calgary, Aug. 1.-It is rumored in legal circles here that L.
