Some other'way of dealing with them, perhaps through the American delegates may be found.. Make Up of Government. · The composition of the new pro- .visional government, its form and personnel was discussed today by. American and .Mexican delegates. in an informal talk with the mediators. No agreement was reached, but it is believed this plank in the peace plan will set forth that the new government shall consist of a provisional president and four cabinet members comprising the portfolios of foreign affairs, finance, war;and Interior. Today's discussion showed the Americans that Mexicans of prominence who have been active in the constitutionalist party will meet with' Berlous opposition from the Huerta delegates as presidential possibilities. Various plans for the form 01 the new government are before the mediators. A commission of five, with one executive, a Junto der gpberiler- nlo or commission of three and provisional president, are being considered. The last will be insisted on by -the Mexicans. : The American delegates probably will offer no · objection to this.
