' SALTILLO, June 11. General Car

Niagara Falls mediators. Baying that

NIAGARA FALLS. June II. Alter
giving out the correspondence with
General Carranza, for whose answer
they declined to wait further, the me
diating plenipotentiaries and the Amer
ican and Mexican delegates announced
tonight that a substantial' agreement
ihaa been reached in relation to the
transfer of authority at Mexico City.
This Important point In the plans for
the pacification of Mexico was gained
by the United States through the con
ciliatory spirit displayed by the Mex
Huerta Wins No Recognition.
In a full conference of the mediators
and the delegates it was agreed that
the transfer of authority from the pres
ent administration to the new pro
visional government should be accom
plished In some other way than by
General Huerta's appointment of a
minister of foreign affairs who would
succeed to the provisional Presidency.
This method, provided for In the Mex
ican constitution, will be abandoned
because the United States insisted that
to assent to It would be tantamount to
a recognition of General Huerta's right
to exercise constitutional functions.
j. On this point the mediation confer
ence has been wrestling for three
weeks. The mediators argued vehe
mently from the Mexican viewpoint,
lut the American delegates were un
yielding. Matters had reached a crisis
when the Americans motored across the
International bridge at sundown for
what many believed would be a final
conference and the end of mediation.
" As the Americans began their discus
sion with the mediators, the latter con
tended again that the method of trans
fer would not be construed as recog
nition of Huerta, but the Americans
reiterated that the constitutionalists
would never accept such a method and
the United States could not yield con
sistently with its own policy. Finally
Luis Elguero. one of the Mexican dele
gates, entered the conference room and
Immediately a spirit of compromise
was noticeable. Observing It, , the
Americans suggested that the other
Mexicans come into the conference and
Umlllo Rabasa and Augustin Rodriguez
joined the group. It was not a formal
conference, but an impromptu talk. In
a surprisingly brief time the Ameri
cans found they had made more head
way with the Mexicans direct than
they had previously by working through
IIanlc "Substantially Agreed Upon.'
Frederick W. Lehmann told the cor
respondents of the progress made and
Justice Lamar dictated the following:
"I was authorized by the mediators
t- say that we have substantially
'agreed on the first plank as to the
method of transfer of authority to the
new provisional government."
Tonight's conference lasted ' more
than two hours. Names for provis
ional president were not mentioned, but
It is expected that at tomorrow's con
ference a beginning will be made in
The Huerta delegates desire that a
man Identified hitherto with no politi
cal faction bo chosen. The Americans
say the individual selected must be
from the ranks of the constitutional
ists, so that they would feel sufficient
confidence In him to lay down their
arms. There Is every reason to be
lieve that eventually the Huerta dele
gates will agree to the choice of an

The order for Mr. Carothers trans

employed on Frank P. Pendleton's
ranch at Salina Cruz, Mexico, have been

lost their lives, but they managed to
work their way across Mexico.
BORDER EMBARGO TIGHTENED
Civil Authorities' Ordered to Exclude
EL PASO, Tex., June 11. Orders
Department at Washington that cus
toms department officials along the
entire Mexican border exercise extreme
vigilance to prevent the passage of
arms Into Mexico. The order followed
closely the sudden turn in the media
tion proceedings at Niagara Falls.
Heretofore the embargo on arms en
tering Mexico over the border has been
purely a matter of military regulation,
enforced by the United States Army
border patrol. The embargo now has
been taken up by the civil Federal
Government, according to the orders
as received 'her by the collector of
customs and by similar officials at
other points on the frontier.
ICE PREVENTS LANDING
Victoria, From Seattle, Fails to Get

NOME, AlaBka, June 11. The steam
ship Victoria, which arrived off Nome
yesterday with 650 passengers from
Seattle, was unable to make a landing
because of the ice floes in the road

the south shore of Norton Sound, to
discharge passengers and freight for
Yukon River points.

House May Act at Once.
The bill probably will be sent over
to the Hpuse tomorrow and can be
taken up at once If the House leaders
desire. With the Senate amendment
it is a subject of conference if leaders
on the House side Insist upon one, but
it can be finally disposed of Immedi
ately so far as Congress Is concerned
If the House accepts the Senate amend
ment and agrees to the bill as sent
them from the Senate side.
A conference would delay final ap

that the measure would not be kept
in conference more than a few days.
The evident temper of the Senate to
defeat the bill unless It Is amended is
expected to have weight with the House
and the Democrats, desiring to put an
end to the matter as soon as possible,
are expected to demand early action.

the troubled waters Senator Vardaman,
of Mississippi, and Senator West, of
Georgia, nearly came to blows. Ap
parently only the Interference of Sen
ator Ashurst and the presence of the
sergeant-at-arms prevented a physical
The trouble started after a bitter ex
change between Senator Vardaman and
Senator James, who had vigorously
criticised the Mississippi Senator, and
in turn had been told that he was not
telling the truth.
When Senator Vardaman sat down
Senator West took: the floor and also
entered a protest against the charars
of Senator Vardaman that those who
voted for the repeal bill were guilty
or treachery to the Democratic Dartv.
He referred to ' the charge that the
Carnegie Foundation had expended
30,ooo to advance the repeal bill.
Senators' Attitudes Menacing.
"Who knows." added the Georgia
senator, "jttut the shipping interests
have spent $100,000 in order to defeat
this bill?" .- . - -
"Have you been offered any?" asked
senator vardaman. . . .
As he spoke he rose and started to
the Georgia Senator, who was only a
lew teet away.
"Don't you say that to me." Senator
west Bhouted, shaking his head and
iiitmg nis arms.
"Well." said Senator Vardaman, still
advancing with his arms half raised.
"you're making an intimation that
somebody else has been influenced."
By this time tho two Senators were
only a few feet -apart, but Senator
Asnurst, one of the biggest men in
the Senate, had stepped between them.
In the meantime, members who had
been in the cloak room tried to tumble
out of the doors all at once, and the
galleries naif filled with neonle wr
leaning forward with expectation of
seeing a real light.
Blows Finally Avoided..
Sergeant-at-Arms HIgglns had heard
enough, and walked out to where the
two benators stood glaring at each
other across the outstretched arms of
Senator Ashurst. and stood readv for
the official command to stop whatever
might be started. Mr. West insisted
"I did not say in writing or other
wise he started to explain.
"Tho Senators will please take their
seats," urged the presiding officer.
"No, I am not going to sit down,"
continued Mr. West, and Senator James
tried to explain that . the Georgia Sen
ator was trying to make no charges.
r many all resumed their seats without
a blow on either side. Both Senators
west and Vardaman explained that
they meant no reflection upon any one
in wnat uey had said.
Later Senator Williams made a short
speech criticising Senator Vardaman.
"I decline to answer- any questions
the senior Senator from MississiDDi
asks me," said Senator Vardaman. "Of
course, it is well understood that the
benator from Mississippi never ap
proves of anything I do,- I car ab
solutely nothing whether I please him
or displease him. My conduct is con
trolled by myself without regard to
his opinion of what I do." -
Joseph Fischler, Trusted Employe) I
Jewelry Store, Captured by Sher
iff as Ho Speeds in Auto Low
Salary and Debt Alleged.
SANTA CRUZ, Cal.. June 11. Joseph
Fischler. a confidential employe of the
Samuels Jewelry .Company, of San
Francisco, who disappeared Tuesday
night after the alleged theft of $30,000
worth of the company's Jewelry, was
arrested tonight in the mountains near
Boulder Creek and made a full con
fession to Sheriff Howard S. Trafton,
who caught him.
Sheriff Trafton received word to
night that Fischler was crossing the
mountains from San Jose. Approach
ing Boulder Creek he encountered a
fast automobile carrying Its driver and
one man. Sheriff Trafton stopped the
Watch Gives Cine to Identity.
"What is your name? he demanded.
"Gunst," replied the lone figure in
"No, it isn't. I guess you are Joe
Fischler. the diamond robber." said the
When the Sheriff found the initials
"J. F." on the man's watch Fischler
"I'm the man you -want, all right.
I've got the stuff with me." confessed
He said he was on the way to Wat-
sonvllle, where he planned to take a
train to Paso Robles and eventually
get out of the country.
Prisoner Locked In Cell.
Sheriff Trafton brought his prisoner
on a train to Santa Cruz and locked
him in a cell. On the train Fischler
was taciturn and talked only a little.
The salary I got in the Jewelry store
was not big enough for me to live on,
and I had gone so far inta debt that I
couldn't see any other way out," said
Fischler. "I went into the store alone
Tuesday night and no one else had
anything to do with the job. No wom
an or anyone else knew anything
about it. I intended to sell some of
the diamonds and get out of the country."
CONVICTION MAY BE DIFFICULT
Owning of Stock in Company Held
to Be in Man's Favor.
SAN FRANCISCO. June 11. Joseph
Fischler kept a safety deposit box in
a local bank. It was opened today
and 12 pawn tickets were found
showing that pieces of jewelry had
been pledged by him for from $10 to
$75, running back over a period of
seven months. This has led the police
to believe that Fischler has been steal
ing from his employers a long time.
A cafe singer,, known as Corinne
Lesser, who says "she Is the wife of
Jack Houston, was arrested with her
husband and held by the police today.
She admitted passing part, of Tuesday
night with Fischler and that he had
given her about $200 worth of Jewelry.
A formal charge of receiving stolen
goods was entered against the couple.
A. S. Samuels, proprietor of the jew
elry, store, told the police tonight that
Fischler owned stock in the company,
and the police, after an investigation
of the law, declared it might be dif
ficult to convict Fischler of either
burglary or grand larceny if he can
prove ownership of as much as one
share. It is probable a new charge
will have to supersede the warrant for
burglary now held against Fischler.
