Washington. The policy of tho
United States was outlined to the
members of two congressional com
mittees of foreign relations at a con
ference at the white house by Presi
dent Wilson and Secretary Bryan.
The message prepared by the presi
dent on the Mexican situation recelr
sd practically universal support. The
course of this government will be one
of non-interference. In the hope that
the effect of Its present efforts and
the pressure of foreign governments
will constitute a moral suasion that
ultimately will bring about peace In

there will be no lifting of the em
bargo on arms; that no faction or

to receive munitions of war from the
United States. If necessary the pres

which the United States believes
peace could be restored, lluerta re
plied In the m-autlve. Foreign gov
ernments genernlly since that rejec
tion have been active In support of
the American policy to persuade
lluerta to yield.

Bridge Opening Interest Grows
Lewtston. The celebration of the
purchase of the Lewlston-Clarkston
bridge, about September 1, may as
sume greater proportions. Towns in
the Palouse country feel as keen an
Interest as l.ewlston, Clarkston and
Asotin. Pullman. Moscow, Oenessee,
and Unlontown are amlous to take
part In the festivities.
The outside Washington towns see
In the purchase of the bridge a pos
sible linking of these districts with
the proposed Washington state high
way which may serve the Important
towns In the southeastern part of the
state with the main trunk line which
bus already been constructed. The
favor with which the Idaho officials
have looked upon the proposed high
way makes the desire of great co
operation with the I'alouse towns even
more potent.
