Time to Require Agreement

CRITICAL POINT IS REACHED

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont., May 30.
A crisis in the progress of the media
tion proceedings wa reached tonight.
While the mediators were awaiting
answers from the Huerta government
and the United States to the tentative
plan for a new provisional govern
ment in Mexico, the question of ad
mitting the constitutionalists to the
conferences before an agreement or
protocol is signed loomed up as likely
to influence the decision of the Ameri
can Government on the plans already
The mediators let it be known to
TiiglM. that they would answer the note
delivered by Juan K. Urquidi. a Car
ranza messenger, publishing both com
Americana Retain Hope.
The American delegates were in
clined to Bee much significance in the
arrival here of Mr. Urquidi. The latter
had a long talk with Mr. Lehmann
early in the day. The American Com
missioners say they have not seen the
Carranza note, but they are hopeful
that a way may be found to bring con
stitutionalists into the conference.
In this . connection the American
delegates conferred tonight with the
mediators. The viewpoint of the
United States is that it would be far
oeiter to get all parties into agree
ment now than to attempt to deal with
the constitutionalists apparently after
a. iwo-pariy agreement is completed.
The American Government, it is known
'here, realizes the critical position in
which it might be placed if the entire
responsibility of dealing with the con-
fi.iuuonaii8t3 were placed upon it.
