Indies, Washington, May Huerfca has au- thomed the 'Mexican' mediation delegates to submit his resignation, in case suck a course is found neces- sary in a settlement of peace negotiations. This Avas stated positively in despatches today from a thoroughly competent diplomatic source hi Mexico City, to one of the foreign representatives here and confirms intimations given Ijy friends of the delegates here yesterday. According to this information from Mexico General Huerta at first au- thorized the delegates to discuss only, the question of the Tampico conflict leading to thc American occupation- of Vera Cruz. Later the Mexican dic- tator, it is explained, came to recog- nize the necessity of a broader set- tlement and then conveyed to the delegates assurance that he was pre- pared to. step down should this course be found necessary by them. The problem causing chief concern to dip- lomats in Mexico City is the form of administration established dur- ing the interregnum before a cousti- tutionally elected president could as- sume office. No intimations concern- ing the name o! a possible successor to Huerta were contained in the de- seven o'clock this .morning, the spatch, this subject being one in death of Miss Isabel Macbeth, daugh- j which it would bo necessary to con- ter of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Macbeth, suit the opinion of Constitutionalist ccciirred at the family residence, 1276 leaders in Mexico.
