Effort to Be Made to Adjourn In

Ordered to En Debate on .
Tolls 'Repeal Bill.
WASHINGTO.v. May 24. The House
of Representatives, in an effort to rush
through the second of the Administra
tion's anti-trust measures, will begin
niht sessions this week. I
The Senate is also ehdeavorlng-" to
peed up legislation to Insure an ad
journment in July, and Majority leader
Kern may order late sessions to end
debate on the tolls repeal bill before
Congress leaders admitted late today
however, that if the Senate undertook
to put through' anti-trust legislation
of a comprehensive nature adjourn
ment could hardly be taken until late
in the Fall.
Death Delays Tolls Conclusion.
The death- of Senator Bradlev and
the fact that the Senate undoubtedly
- will adjourn tomorrow out of respect
for his memory makes it probably, that
debate cannot be closed on the tolls
repeal bill before late Friday. As many
amendments and substitutes have been
offered a vote on the bill itself prob
ably cannot be taken until next week.
Meanwhile the House will take up
the second of its 'anti-trust measures,
having: put through , the trade commis
sion bill without a change. The sec
ond bill, drawn by Mr. Clayton, chair
man of the Judiciary committee, car
ried provisions dealing with Interlock
ing directorates, -holding companies,
price-fixing and the issue of labor
rights and demands.
Labor Demands Rene-wed.
The American Federation of Labor is
: Insisting: on' stronger provisions to ex
'.pmpt labor unions from anti-trust
prosecution and to liberalize injunction
processes and contempt procedure. The
judiciary sub-committee on trusts con-,
tends that the labor sections were ap
proved by the labor leaders when
drawn. The bill may be acted upon by
House leaders are much interested
In the President's declaration that lie
will not be satisfied unless the whole
anti-trust programme goes through
both Houses. Some think the Senate
may be counted on to pass the trade
commission bill, possibly without
amendment, and to go no further at
tills session, except, possibly, to pass
the general dam bill, now privileged to
tome up any time in the House.
The dam bill, regulating water power
' on navigable rivers, would empower
the Federal Government to make regu
lations of practices, rates and charges
for water power when, a, state fails to
perform that function, and would pro
vide that after 50 years the Govern
ment may take over any water power
project under the bill.

grievance against the American peo
ple or Government. I do not well see
how I could make this stronger or
use words less confusing. Even Presi
dent Wilson agrees with these state
ments, for he has said that his Gov
ernment Is not hostile to the Mexican
government or people. He does assert
that the United States is at odds with
Mexico and that the aimed forces of
this country are not being ued against
Mexico, but against General Huerta. Is
it not rather strange that I am singled
out as the object of the ire and the
subject for punishment by the United
"Americans did not realize the con
dition of affairs in this country dur
the brief regime of Senor Madero.
Possibly a few Americans resident
within the City of Mexico and pos
sessed of unusual means of ascertain
ing political and industrial conditions,
had. an inkling of the chaos and
tragedy intermingled in the doings of
the government. But the great public
of tho world was deaf and dumb to the
heartaches of the Mexican people. A
stern and terrible national offering of
blood and treasure was being made by
a nation that sought peace and pros
perity instead of riot and treachery.
Call From Heaven Heard.
'Then it was that I was called by a
mandate from as Heaven it?erf to take
upon my shoulders the burden of tear
ing our fair, loved land from the awful
grin of political anarchy and de
bauchery. "There would be no anarchy or re
bellion in Mexico today but for out
ride influences and encouragement. The
republic, ever since its earlier days,
has ever been able to master Its own
affairs. Serious rebellion has seldom
menaced the stability of the govern
ment or the peace and tranquility of
the people, and the present outbreak
In some of the-northern states woull
be quickly and effectually put down
were it not for many extraneous trou
bles that have been foisted upon us.
"It is absolutely true that so-called,
constitutionalists have no guiding
principle in their warfare. I have yet
to learn what they are fighting for ex
cept to overthrow if possible the con
stituted authorities in the national
capital. One leader has been pleased
to announce cej-tain alleged grievances
against the general government; an
other leader declares something else,
and a third has an entirely different
pronunciamento. As a matter of com
mon knowledge, the various heads to
this rebellious propaganda are seeking
only their own narrow interests and
this at the fearful cost of blood, treas
ure and peace regarding which we all
know so well. They are willing to see
a nation go to ruin In order that they
may accomplish their seKish ends.
"But I am ready to assert, with all
the strength of which I am capable,
that my glorious country will not be
allowed to go to the international
graveyard in this manner. Mexico shall
not perish, least of all by her own
hand. She has weathered the storm
before and soon again to the joy of her
friends at home and abroad and to the
discomfort of her enemies, wherever
they may be, she will rise far above
all her distractions and once again
take her place among the nations in
peace and prosperity."
Asked if he was willing to abide by
the results of the mediation confer
ence, whatever they may be, Huerta
"I would prefer not to make definite
reply to that question at this time.
Not that I have not my mind made up
on the matter, for I have, but for rea
sons which will not need explanation I
would only wish to be silent on such
vital matters at this juncture."
Arising to his feet and speaking with
emotion. General Huerta ended the in
terview with these words:
"Mexico wants peace; peace at home,
peace with all the world; peace with
the great United States, peace, peace."

FEDIX DIAZ PREDICTS PEACE
Method of Settling Land Question in
TORONTO, Ont., May 24. General
Felix Diaz, who is staying in this city,
today said he heartily approved of the
mediation proceedings at Niagara Falls.
In the event that a new provincial
government results from the mediation
conferences, he said, he would be among
the first to swear allegiance to it, for
he believed the Interest of peace In his
country, now of all times, required the
subordination of personal desires to the
General Diaz suggested that the
mediators consult informally with the
directors of all the political parties of
Mexico taking part in the last two
Presidential elections. Thus they could
obtain for Provisional President a man
satisfactory to all factions. He also
said the land problem could be settled
by imposing prohibitive taxes on the
larger estates, compelling the owners
to relinquish them. He thought the
peons should receive only the usufruct
of the land, otherwise they would soon
sell it rather than cultivate it.
General Diaz said he did not come to
Toronto to be near the mediation con
ference, but thought the Mexican peo
ple would not approve of his staying on
American territory in case hostilities
should be resumed. He saw no pros
pect of war, but believed it was more
patriotic for him to be on neutral soil
at this time. He expects to remain in
