Chargé Brown to the Secretary of State.


(Mr. Brown reports that he was told by President Estrada that he had received, at 9 o’clock a.m., a telegram from President Diaz, indicating dawn of to-day for commencement of armistice, which is obviously impossible as well as most embarrassing to Guatemala. He adds that President Estrada is ready for immediate armistice, but at feasible hour mutually agreed upon, and that Minister Merry will be notified as soon as President Estrada indicates hour for armistice to commence. Mr. Brown reports that he has been informed by the President of Guatemala that more Salvador troops entered to-day,)
