The Minister in Guatemala ( McMillin ) to the Acting Secretary of State
[Received March 19—12:10 a.m.]
45. Efforts for settlement of troubles continued yesterday till late at night. Unionist committee came before diplomatic corps. Government [Page 727] committee will do so to-night. One unfavorable sign is that two Labor members of Unionist committee who cooperated by-attending meetings before absented themselves and seem more anxious for revolution then settlement. President released certain political prisoners which will have temporary good effect on the part of dangerous situation reported in my 44, March 16 [which] is not materially changed.
