San José, January 30, 1917—6 p.m.
De facto Government has announced Cabinet composed of representatives of all factions and they are men of high rank, repute.
This morning the Gaceta published a decree signed by de facto Government calling a constitutional election deputies by popular vote; election to take place April 1; convention to assemble May 1 evidently for the purpose of forming a new Constitution and electing a President.
This seems to remedy a misrule and legalize as far as possible the new administration abroad.
This action of the de facto Government seems to meet with approval of the majority of the people.
