WASHINGTON. Aug;. . The Pan
American conference considering means
to restore peace to Mexico adjourned
today after having- developed no di

purposes, but leaving; undecided the
exact course to be pursued. It will
reassemble in New York probably early
Meanwhile the Latin-American dip
lomats will communicate with their
governments, and Secretary ' Lansing
will confer with President Wilson.
It was reported tonight that the gen
eral form of the final appeal to the
factional leaders had been agreed on
by the conferees and adjournment
taken while Mr. Lansing laid it before
the President. . The Secretary was aaid
to be at work on a draft of the appeal
tonight in consultation with Secretary
Lane, who has kept in close touch with
the Mexican situation.
Appeal Addressed to People.
The appeal will be addressed to the
Mexjcan people. Copies .will be pre
sented to the various Mexican leaders
and to the Governors of the Mexican
stages without regard to the faction
they represent, and also will be circu
lated throughout Mexico -by American
and Latin-American consular officers.
bearing the ratification of all South and
Central American governments.
Two days of conferences and hear
ing reports have brought all the par
ticipants in accord with President
Wilson's general plan, which is
premised on the fact that the great
majority of the people of Mexico de
sire peace, which to be lasting- must
go beyond consideration of those who
have furthered their plans through
force of arms.
The conferees were impressed that
while the armed forces are in position
to keep the country In a state of tur
moil, they are, nevertheless, only a
small proportion of the people of
While all the participants are In
sympathy with the President's plan to
induce the military factions to enter
another peace conference and have
signified their willingness to co
operate with it to the fullest extent,
the South Americans are not sanguine
of success, unless some way-can be
round lor elimination or the military
leaders and recognition of all classes
in Mexico. -
Momentous Issues Peadlagr.
It Is realised that there are questions
of vast moment, when considered in the
light of Mexico's International obliga
tions and the responsibility of the na
tions which are preparing to sponsor
her rehabilitation, that -cannot be de
termined in any brief conference. - but
muat be the subject of much delibera
Foremost Is the extent to which the
claims of the military chiefs shall be
considered and what concessions be
tween them can bo arranged. One de
velopment which emphasised that fea-
ure was the dispatch tonight of Major-
General Scott. Chief-of-Staff of the
Army, to the Mexican border to confer
with Generat Villa,
The War Department refused to com
ment on General Soott's mission and it
waa said there that any statement
would be made by the State Depart
ment. After a conference between Gen
eral Scott. Secretary Lansing and Act'
ng secretary Breckinridge, of the War
Department, It was said the General
waa going to readjust the American
forces in the light of recent develop
ments which have threatened attacks
on border towns. It waa generally be
lieved, however, that General Scott, In
whom General V ilia haa expressed con
fldence, and to whom he often has
turned for advice, will outline to the
Northern chieftain the need of consid
oration for the other factions.
Carransa's Successes Considered.
This was taken to indicate that some
of the conferees were Impressed that
the military successes and the extent
of territory conquered by General Car
ranxa would entitle him to a greater
measure of consideration than General
Villa has been Inclined to admit.
Another point Is the extent to which
the business and industrial element
sometimes called the cientlflcos, must
oe taken into consideration. It Is urged
n their behalf that most of them
ave not been .identified with any mill.
tary activity. .
In the conference today were Paul
Fuller, Secretary Lansing. President
Wilsons unofficial adviser In Mexican
affairs, and the diplomatic representa-
ves or Argentina, Bras!!. Bolivia.
Chile. Uruguay and Guatemala.
There was no change - in the first
tep to send final representations to
he military leaders, and to General
arranxa in particular, demanding for
he sake of the millions of non-com
batants that they form a new govern
ment that can be recognised and sup
ported by the American nations and
Ruaaorsj ef Breach Denied.
Rumors that a breach had occurred
over personalities were emphatically de
led, and It was said the discussion had
not yet reached the stage where tbe
presidency waa being considered.
Questions of International law, vari
ous provisions of the Mexican consti
tution and the probability that many
f currania s adherents might not fol
low him in-defiance of a genuine pan
American effort to restore peace and
government in their country are to- be
carefully studied before the final pro
