WOMAN ATTACKS ATTORNEY
Officials and Diplomats Are Hope
ful and Step Is Regarded t
Ivessening Prospect of For
WASHINGTON, April 1. With the
hope of securing- permanent protection
for the 25,004 foreigners la Mexico
City, the United States Government has
proposed to the Villa-Zapata forces and
General Carranza that the Mexican
capital be declared neutral and outside
the field of operations hereafter in
Mexico's civil war.
The Villa-Zapata forces have agreed
to the proposal and are willing; to va
cate the city as soon as a similar agree
merit is obtained with the Carranza
authorities, who are now being negoti
Outcome Depends on Carranxo.
On General Carranza depends also
whether or not the effort of the United
States 1o neutralize the railway be
tween Mexico City and Vera Cruz shall
succeed, as the Villa-Zapata officials
have likewise given their assent to this
State Department officials-decline to
discuss the status of the two proposals
beyond saying- that they still were un
der consideration. The plan with re
spect to Mexico City contemplates an
arrangement whereby order would be
maintained there by a local council,
made up of prominent residents select
ed by mutual agreement between the
oDDOslne factions. The capital would
not then, under the terms of the pro
posed agreement, be subject to further
Officials Are Encouraged.
Officials and diplomats here who are
conversant with the details of the plan
are much encouraged by the prompt
acceptance given to it by the Villa-7-apata
authorities and are now hope
ful that General Carranza can be per
suaded to do likewise. Duval West, per
sonal representative of President Wil
eon. who. it is understood will confer
with General Carranza at Vera Cruz in
the next few days on the Mexican sit
uation in general, probably will assist
American Consuls Silliman and Canada
in their efforts to secure General. Car-
Later, it is understood. Mr. West will
go to Mexico City to talk with the Bra
zilian Minister concerning the situation,
should the capital be declared neu
tral, much -apprehension for the safety
of foreigners would be removed and
the famine menace eliminated.- Since
such a step would lessen the likelihood
of complication with foreign powers,
the plan, in the opinion of American
officials, should appeal to all Mexican
factions. . -
No Important engagements between
the Villa and Carranza forces were re
ported to the Washington authorities
from any source today, dispatches say
ing that comparative quiet prevailed
along -trie border and -that the Mexico
City situation was unchanged.
The Brazilian Minister at the capital
advised the State Department that
taxes on mining property in Lower
California were payable at the capital
or at Chihuahua, money deposited in
any American bank to the order of the
Treasurer-General of the de facto gov
ernment being acceptable for that pur
pose. The Departmentt had inquired
whether Governor Cantu, of Lower Cal
ifornla. was subject to the orders of
the Mexico City government, various
owners of American mines there hav
ing been puzzled as to how to meet
their tax obligations because of con
fused conditions in Mexico.

side, based thier chief argument on the
charge that grave political dangers be

railroads are under highly efficient
management at present and that the

more efficient than that of the gov

Great Addition to Portland's Territory
Seen In Opening of Columbia
'"Portland's strategic position sur
passes any city on the Pacific Coast, in
fact, in the country," declared Joseph
N. Teal yesterday in speaking on the
"Celilo Canal and What It Means" be
fore the Progressive Business Men's
Club at the Multnomah Hotel.-
"Please don't get the idea that be
cause a man is for the 'open waterway'
he is against public service corpora
tions. I think the railroads and the
steamship companies should work in
harmony and co-operatively.
"Keep your eyes on Pasco and Ken-
newick. It is my prediction that in the
early future they are destined to be
come or greater Importance than we
may now expect.
"The opening of the Celilo Canal
means much for Portland, probably far
more than we now can imagine. It will
mean the opening of a vast area to the
east of us. It will mean bringing into
this port far more goods and products
than ever could have been the case oth
erwise. The railroads are active. They
see what the waterway means to them.
There is to be another railroad-Interstate
Commerce Commission conference
in Washington this month, and I must
attend, but I confess I am embarrassed
as to' what can be done. I know not
what will be done or what is likely to
be the result. Portland's opportunity is
at hand and she must be ready to seize
it in the opening of this canal."
