Mes sage Washington May Iins authorized the Mexican mediation delegates to submit his resignation in cose such course is found necessary to n settlement In pence negotiations This ivas stated positively in cjlspatclics from a thoroughly competent diplomatic source in Mexico City to one of tfhe for eign representatives here and confirms intimations given by friends of the delegates here yesterday According to this information from Mexico City Huerta at first authorized the delegates to discuss only the question of the Tampico conflict leading to the American oc cupation of era Cruz Later the Mexican dictator it is explained came to recognize the necessity of a broader settlement and then conveyed to the delegates as surances that he waa prepared to step down It la said this course will be found necessary by them The problem causing chief con cern to diplomats in Mexico City now Is that of the form of admin istration to be established during the Ititeregfiuni before a oonstitutlonal iyelectedprealdent could assume of Nij Intimations concerning names possible successors to Huerta are contained in the dispatches this being one in which it will be 1 necessary to consult the opinion of the constitutionalists and other leaders in Mexico Justice Tuamar and Frederick who will represent the United iStates at the peace conference at Niagara Falls have arranged to leave Washington at oclock tomorrow morning This arrangement will put the Ameri can delegates at the scone of confer ence about the same time the Mexi can delegates arrive there from New York The information on Huertas atti tude now received through foreign diplomatic channels agrees with the view obtained by some close fN friends of the Mexican peace envoys during their stop here According to this view the delegates realized that the present administration at Mexico City is fast going to pieces ind It inevitable that Huerta must give place to some other authority Until the Information came through Jiplomatlc channels it yas not known that Huerta had definitely ized his resignation if envoys sldered such action essential The Mexican delegates are not Huerttstas but represent broadly the beat elements in the federal dis tricts desirous of bringing about an orderly government throughout Mex ico who will come after Huerta whether an individual or a provision al commission is still open question but it Is gathered that the succession is not likely to fall on military lead ers who come to prominence by ar bitrary force In Conference The president and Bryan were in conference with the American com missioners who are to participate in the Niagara Falls negotiations for more than an hour Bryan accom panied Justice Lamar and F W Lehman to the white house where H Perclval Dodge
