Chieftain May Be Eliminated from
Mexican Politic! Unlets He
Yields to Obregon and
Other Officers.
Constitutionalist Leaders Take
Refuge in San Juan de Uloa
in Harbor.
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-
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. Issued less
than a month ago, warning all factions
that they, must unit or some other
means would be found to set up an or
derly government In Mexico was trie last
pronouncement of policy.

Sir John French Visits 'Division on
Centennial Anniversary of
(By Frederick Palmer, Correspondent of
The Associated Press.) 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

White hall attract tourists, now tanned.

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."

Optimists point out that the grand

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
