the American delegates to the Mexl-
'can conference made public tonight a
statement Issued with the consent ot
the Washington Government, In reply
to the statement given out last night
by the Mexican fielegation criticising
the American plan for the establish
ment of a provisional government in
Mexico with a constitutionalist at Its
Suggestions that President Wilson
had any intent to destroy the electoral
liberty of Mexico are "utterly repu
diated" by the American representa
tives. The statement covers the whole
range of criticism made by the Huerta
United States Unyielding.
Coming on the eve of the full con
ference tomorrow of mediators and
delegates, at which is to be deter
mined whether there is any chance of
an agreement through mediation for a
settlement of the Mexican problem,
the statement stirred the mediation
colony. It was Interpreted as fore
shadowing the unalterable and un
yielding position of the United States
In future parleys. The statement
"The American representatives ut
terly repudiate any suggestions that
the American President has any intent
of destroying the electoral liberty of
Mexico and insists that the Mexican
representatives entirely misunderstood
the motives and objects of the Presi
dent, who recognizes the facts and
sees in the past success of the consti
tutionalist army indisputable evidence
of the approval of the Mexican people.
But he also sees that the full triumph
of that army means an indefinite
continuance of the war, with suffering
and bloodshed and death which every
"Only Practical Means" Refused.
"These consequences the President
seeks to prevent through mediation,
but we greatly fear that the language
of the Mexican note implies that his
efforts may be thwarted because of
unwillingness to have a constitution
alist as a President, even though that
promises the only practicable means
by which the horrors of war can be
"The American Government seeks
only to assist in securing the pacifi
cation of Mexico. It has no special in
terest in the method or In the person
by which that great end is to be ac
complished, and if it presses for any
particular method or for the selection
of a particular type of man it ia only
because it believes them to be the only
means to the desired end. American
objections to the plan approved by the
Mexican representatives have been
based upon the profound conviction
that the adoption of the plan would
not stop the progress of the victorious
army nor bring that speedy peace
which the American Government so
Constitutionalist Assent Needful.
"It would be easy at this conference
to write an agreement which many
would consider desirable, but unless
the most excellent of plans and the
most excellent of men are accepted
by the constitutionalists we would
only have a paper plan, perfect in form
and just in expression but wholly in
effective to secure peace in war-worn
Mexico. To bring that war to a close, :
to restore peace and constitutionalist
. government, is the aim of the Presi
dent, and that end can only be attained
by consulting the Just wishes of the
constitutionalists, who are now the
dominant force in the country.
"If those selected by the mediators
to administer the provisional govern
ment have the confidence of the con
stitutionalists, a long step will have
been taken towards the pacification ot
Mexico without furnishing any occa
sion for alarm to those Mr. Rebasa rep
resents, for if the plan is accepted by
both Huerta and Carranza, the cessa
tion of arms follows and provisional j
government is established to maintain
order and to call an election at which
every qualified voter may cast his bal
lot for President of his choice; while
if the plan indorsed by the Mexican
representatives should be adopted and
a neutral should be chosen, we should
have secured no practical results, but
still be confronted with the insur
mountable fact that the constitutional
ists, now almost completely triumph
ant, would reject the plan, repudiate
the man and press forward with re
newed zeal to Mexico City with all the
loss of blood and life that may involve.
"Neutral" IUu Not Patriot. .
"In reference to the suggestion that
the Provisional President should be
neutral, it is said that it la manifest
that in such a contest as has been
waged in Mexico for years It is not only
fair but necessary to assume that every
intelligent man of any prominence is
at heart on one side or the other, and
the country might well question the
patriotism of any Mexican who has
been colorless In such a contest, and
as the Provisional P-esldent must be to
some extent Identified with one party
or the other, it necessarily follows that
to meet the requirements of the pres
ent situation his sympathies, which re
ally mark the means, must be with the
" 'The effort, therefore, should be not
to And a neutral, but one whose atti
tude on the controlling issues would
make him acceptable to the constitu
tionalists, while his character, standing
and conduct would make him accept
able to the other party." ".
The note urges an election super
vised by representatives of both parties,
and adds that "all the Influence the
United States can legitimately use will
be exerted to secure an honest election."
- 'WAoHlN'GTOX BEGIXS TO DOUBT
Mediation Regarded as Being Now in
- Critical Situation.
: WASHINGTON, June 17. Officials of
the Washington Govument tonight
'- characterized the Mexican situation as
extremely delicate. This comment re
's f erred particularly to . the mediation
r conference, which will be resumed to
V morrow at Niagara Tlla, but t also ap-
plied to the conditions In Northern Hex-
ico growing out of the action of Gen-
eral Villa in insisting he should have
; complete military control In the cam-
palgn .against General Huerta.
Hope for the success of mediation,
however, waa by no means abandoned.
according to persons In close touch
with the Administration, and this hope
was said to be based largely on the
developments in the constitutionalist
ranks, the view being held here that
Internecine squabbles among Carran
za's followers had been nipped and that
this enhanced the chance that an
agreement would be reached upon a
provisional president of Mexico and
that Internal Mexican hostilities might
Hnerta Men Expected Yield.
Huerta's delegates at Niagara Falls,
having failed to induce the United
States to accept their so-called com
promise candidate for the provisional
presidency, it was reported here, might
at the last minute yield to someone
suggested by the United States, even if
he bore the stamp of the constitution
alist., in order to hold up the military
campaign against Mexico City. With
Villa as commander-in-chief of the mil
itary operations against Huerta, such a
culmination was declared to be possi
ble. The chief subject discussed in offi
cial quarters and also . among the
agents of General Carranza in Wash
ington, was the action of lienerai vuia

officials here with respect to the arrest

EL PASO, Tex.. June 18. The split
betweln Carranza and Villa has been
complete, it was learned tonight on
high authority. -
Villa will proceed with his army
south toward Mexico City, disregard
ing General Natera, whose appoint
ment by Carranza as head of the new
central zone evidently caused the open
breach between the northern zone com.
mander and the constitutionalist com
mander in chief.
Villa Chooses Central Strip.
This for the first time made clear
the relations between Carranza and
Villa. It was said officially that Villa's
forceful taking over of the Carranza
offices at Juares was only a step in a
general plan to remove all Carranza
elements in the territ6ry Villa domi-
troops from Parral, although having
been ordered by Carranza to proceed to
Villa Told to Obey Orders.
The authoritative narrative of what
occurred between Carranza and Villa
is as follows:
On Saturday Carranza ordered Villa
to-send two men to the assistance of
Natera, under command of one of
Villa's generals. Villa replied that he
was going to Zacateeas himself with
his entire army. In retort, Carranza
asked Villa to obey his orders, which
would have placed Villa's troops under
command of Natera, In whose sone
Zacateeas is situated.

appointed at once, men toiiowea toe

who declined to accept any new leader.
Villa then told Carranza that he was
going to move south as he previously
had announced. The exchange of notes

Evasion of Roll Cull Demand and

Clever Planning and Acting

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, June 18. The "mileage grab,"
which was carefully eliminated from
the legislative appropriation bill by
the House of Representatives about
two months ago, was cleverly slipped
back into the bill by the Senate, and
the same manner of accomplishing this
change would have done credit to the
master hand at legislative trickery,
ex-Senator Aldrlch, of Rhode Island.
Tha Senate committee on appropria
tions. In reporting the legislative bill,
struck out the new provision made by
the House, which appropriated only
sufficient money to pay the traveling
expenses to and from Washington of
all Senators and Representatives, and
dependent members of their families,
and restored the old provision which
allows each Senator and Congressman
20 cents a mile for each mile traveiea
In coming to Washington and return
ing to his home.
The House struck out the 10-eent
mileage, because the allowance was re
garded as too liberal, and especially
so in the case of Far Western mem
bers, whose annual mileage allowance
amounts to $1280 or more each ses
sion. The Senate spent some time discus
sing the amendement reported by the
appropriations committee, which re
stored the old 20-cent mileage, in lieu
of the House provision, and speeches
were made pro and con, and several
amendments suggested. Finally, when
debate suddenly halted, the President
pro tem put the question of agreeing
to the committee amendment, and Im
mediately Senator Kenyon demanded a
rollcall, but he was defeated in his ef
fort to force the Senate to go on rec
ord, individually, on the mileage grab.
As the Record stands, there Is nohting
to show what Senators favored the
grab and what Senators opposed it.
All of which avoidance was due to the
clever manipulation and arbitrary rul
ing of the Democratic presiding of
ficer of the Senate.
