S. Attitude Toward Oil and
Land Laws Unchanged
RAPID CITY, S. D., July 7.
(AP) A first hand report on the
troubled relations between the
United States and Mexico, was
Kiven to President Coolidg3 at the
Summer White House today by
James R. Sheffield, ambassador to
Mexico, but details were withheld
pending further conversations.
The ambassador had indicated
before departing from Rapid City
to be a guest at the state game
lodge, that in his opinion, there
would be no change in the Ameri
can attitude toward the Mexican
oil and land laws.
Pressed for a statement regard
ing frequent rumors that he in
tended to resign, Mr. Sheffield de
clined to comment, saying that he
would not discuss the Mexican sit
uation in any way until he had
conferred with Mr. Coolidge.
Reaching Rapid City shortly &U
Ur midnight, the ambassador was
driven immediately to the sum
mer White House and retired
without seeing the president. He
arose just before Mr. Coolidge left
for the executive offices, remain
ing in seclusion until the presi
dent's return at noon, when the
twe held their first conference.
At the executive offices, it was
stated that some time before Mr.
Sheffield's visit is over, he will
make some announcement regard
ing his future plans and his im
pressions of the Mexican problems.
Aside from his conference with
the ambassador, the first on for
eign affairs he has had since his
summer residence, Mr. Coolidge
put in a busy morning at his desk
and with Mrs. Coolidge, inspected
the Rapid City Indian school a
There he saw how the native
American is being tutored in the

Gone; Office Records Only
Thing Saved ;. Loss Partly
Insured; Will Rebuild
Fire yesterday afternoon com
pletely destroyed the plant of the
Capital City Bedding" company, at
1190 N. Capitol street, with a to
tal loss of over $30,000.
The flames were said to have
started from "spontaneous" com
bustion in a picking machine,
about 3:30, and were almost ex
tinguished by the efforts of em
ployes using a small hose and
chemical extinguisher, before the
arrival of the fire engines.
Break Out Again
Breaking out of control, how
ever, the flames quickly filled the
Llrame building, with its extremely
inflammable contents. Nothing
was saved except the company's
books and valuable papers.
The blaze was spectacular, with
flames and smoke rolling high Jn
to the air. For a time several
neighboring houses were threat
ened, and a building belonging to
the Gowen and Ritchie service
station was slightly damaged, but
firemen and volunteers succeeded
in keeping the flames ' confined
largely to the main plant of the
Mattress Stock Lost '
A $20,000 stock of mattresses
was completely destroyed, as was
all the machinery, including a re
cently installed filling machine
costing $6,000, and other equip
ment valued at $2,000. The build
ing was valued at about $3,500.
The loss is covered partly by in
surance, the owners said.
The Capital City Bedding com
pany is owned by E. W. Muller
and D. Poulin. and has employed
a force of eight workers.
Building operations will start
immediately to replace the plant,
Mr. Poulin said, and every attempt
will be made to catch up with or
ders as soon as possible.
The fire department was some
what hampered by the fact that
the closest hydrant was over a
block distant. Three machines re
sponded to the alarm.

The seizure of 350 rifles and 100,

about to warp out from an East

agents that another Central Amer

in the bud."
Acting on a last minute tip, the
government agents rushed to the
