Unlets He Yields to Obregon and Other Officers. FOUR CABINET MINISTERS QUIT Constitutionalist Leaders Take Refuge in San Juan de Uloa in Harbor. VILLA CHIEF DEFIES THE U. S. WASHINGTON, June 20. General Venustiano Carranaa, original leader of . the Mexican constitutionalist movement, la face to face with a sit uation that may eliminate him as a factor In Mexican politics, unless he yields to the dictation of his com manding general, Alvaro Obregon, and other high officers In his army. Official advices today revealed that four of Carrania's cabinet min isters had resigned and that General Obregon was insisting on their rer tentton a well as" the dismissal of the members to whom they were op- i posed. Mrl' Objects. Word also came to the American gov- v ernment that General Jose Maytorena, the Villa commander In Sonora, objected vigorously to tha possible landing of American marine to rescue Americana in the Yaqul valley, Indicating- that he would regard such action as a hostile Invasion. Inasmuch as Maytorena prom ised to send troops to the region to pro tect foreigners, the American ' govern ment, which had decided to land marines oirry if absolutely necessary. It is under- 4vtnod, will consider the Incident closed with the arrival of the Maytorena troops. The situation in the Yaqul valley was overshadowed, however, by the cabinet at Vera Cms. where a new angle to the entire Mexican problem was created over night. The dissension in the Car ransa "cabinet, according to official re ports, results from an attack by one of the cabinet members on some of his colleagues, bat lit many quarters here it was believed tha trouble is of long stand- ' Ing and Is tha culmination of differences between Carransa and Obregon, which began when tha latter occupied Mexico City several weeks ago. Ohreajon's Manifesto. Tha fact that Obregon had telegraphed Carranaa Imuatihar on tha retention of four cabinet members Luis Cabrera, Rafael Zubaran, Escudero Verdugo and Jesua Uerta tha first two of whom were in Washington for a long time as representatives of Carranaa, was generally viewed as an Indication of Obregon'a ascendency- to a position of . political prestige in the constitutional movement. News coming through official channels that Carransa had removed his head quarters to the old. Isolated fortress. Ban Juan de Uloa, in the harbor of Vera Crus, spread the Impression that he feared an uprising against him in Vera Crux. American warships lying In the harbor would give him ssylum should he desire to escape, it was stated. The cabinet crisis In Vera Crus has halted the movement of Genera; Pablo Gonzales on Mexico City. It is not known what his sympathies are, but he has always been personally friendly to Carransa and It Is believed here he has halted his troops to await developments at Vera Crux. General Candldo Agullar and several other prominent Carranza chieftains In the state of Vera Crus are sympathetic with Obregon and, while there Is little definite information available, the im pression In official quarters tonight was that Obregon might succeed Carranza as first chief of the constitutionalist move ment. Where He Lost Arm. Obregon recently lost his left arm In a battle near Leon against the forces of Generals Villa and Angeles. Just what relation the cabinet dissen sion at Vera Crus may have on the possi bility of a coalition of the Mexican fac tions to restore peace Is not apparent as yet to officials here. Carranza has returned a polite "no" to all overtures thus far made to him. and the prevailing opinion here has been that lu this action he was supported by his cabinet and Gen eral Obregon. President Wilson Is patiently waiting for the situation in Mexico to develop Itself more clearly before announcing his next move. Ills statement.

I.V FRANCEJ, i jiine is (Via Indon, Juae U-On the centennial anniversary of the Battle of ! " aterloo. Field Marshal Sir John French, the British commander, visited a cavalry division not long out of the trenches. By brigades those who had survived the shells and asphyxiating gas of ths second battle of Vpres were awaiting in a field near their quarters, his coming, their khaki melting into the green of the grass where they lny resting and bathing themselves In the genial sun of a mild June day. w Scene Is Aftertlna. When an automobile appeared with the little British flag which only the commander-in-chief's car flies, they formed a hollow square. The absolute simplicity of this meeting of leader and men and the thought of all they went through, made the acene a most affecting one, the sturdy white haired soldier carrying the customary walking stick, which every British officer affect with a little blase of colors of his many campaigns on his breast. - The general stood In the center of the square Derore tne renin Hussars, once his own regiment, and before the famous First Life Guards, whose sentries. In shiny cuirasses and plumed helmets at White hall attract tourists, now tanned. trench-hardened warriors on foot, with no brass except the regimental insignia on their shouldera With them were other regiments who had won glory at Water loo. "peaks as soldier. Sir John did not make a speech, but spoke as soldier to soldier, hesitating for words at times In his emotion. The men were actually seeing their commander-in-chief, who In the complicated Im mensity of sTpodern war Is only a name to them. ' While Wellington personally encouraged his soldiers in his) battle a century ago, which occupied hardly the front of a brigade In the present trenches, this was the only way a, modern commander could make his men feel that he was a human leader snd not a machine. As a cavalry man he said: , "I knew what you were capable of and you have shown that you are equal to any work required of a soldier. It re quires more dogged tenacity, more cour age, to stand for many days In the trenches than to make one brave charge. "Against that dastardly attack at Yprea with a weapon against all usages, when tha aloud of gas rolled over your tranches, I gasping, blindedand la , darkness . you stood your ground with a determination which prevented any disastsr."

Never, perhaps, since bwfore the battle of the Marne. have the Teutonic allies appeared so confident of success. Having failed in their original plan of crushing France, and then turning tr Russia, they have reversed the order of their strategy and now. Judging by the expenditure of life and ammunition In Oalicia,' they have pinned their whole faith In so paralysing the nusstajv army as to penult of tha throwing of a tremendous weight ot men and metal Into the western Ihester, there either to break through the Franeo- Britlah line or force an Intermldable period of sanguinary warfare. Kaiser In Commend. A dispatch, from Coponhsgen tonight saya that the German emperor himself has taken supreme command of the Ga llclan campaign, establishing his head quarters In Blllcln, as near to the front as practicable. Meanwhilo the German official com- munloutinn records the further progress of the Austro-German forces toward Lemberg, both to the north and south of the city. It claims that the Russians have been cleared from parts of the Dnelster to the south. The great questhm F.ngland and Its sl- Ues are asking Is whether Grand Duke Nicholas. commanding tha Russian forces, can successfully enulate Joffra'a tactics of last fall and cl.cck the Autao Germana at tha gates of Lemberg. ' What Optimists Think. Optimists point out that the grand duka checked them almost at the gates ot Warsaw, just as Geppyal JoJfr stopped ' the Germane before Parla and Field Marshal Sir John French stopped them before Tpres, Durkirk and Calais. It Is argued further that even should Lemberg fall, tha' Russians can drop back to equally formidable positions, utilising tha rivers and swamps and other advantages of tha terrain, and it is the British contention that, they could thus hold out for months, England and France in the meantime sending to their aid men and muntlons tf necessary. Ctaestlon of Powder. Whether Russia has sufficient ammuni tion to meet the present strain Is a ques tion which cannot bo antwred In Eng- lang, although the London papers say frankly that the shortage Is acute. One of tha ftunday papers characterizes tha situation In Oalicia aa "Russia's su preme emergency," and public Interest Is centered in that theater, notwithstand ing tha hard fight in progress along the western front. The sound of guns Is audible at Lemberg and possibly this week will see the culmination of cna of tha most Interesting phases of the great war.
