Tie administra tion does not intend to heed General .Mvnrn Obregon's suggestion that the American expedition withdraw from Mexico. Scott and Funston have again been , ii'Structed not to treat with Obregon .looking toward a withdrawal of Amer icans. Instead, Scott must again express the need of having Cnrranzistas co operate with the expedition. War Secretary Baker called on Presi dent Wilson following the receipt of Scott's request for more explicit in nfruetions as to how far to go in the next conference. Baker must have re ceived the instructions quickly, ns his '(inference with Wilson lasted only 10 oi': notes. ' Carranzistas Are ?. ?. ?. ?T , By E. T. ConXtc. fruited Press staff correspondent.)

Mexico, upon which depends peace or war with the de fucto government, was tip to President Wilson today. A rapid fire excli.-.nge of telegram between Secretary of War Pealter anil Generals Hugh iScott and Fred Funs Ion today indicated that the adminis tration had not yet fullly decided on its policy. Major Sample, in command at ('(ilumbus, was ordered to obtain lien oral Pershing's opinion on the Carran .'1a demand for an immediate with diawal. General Scott was said to be lake warm on the issue before his confer en.'O with Guteral Alvaro Obregon, Car rniigista war minister. Funston is said to be strongly opposed to yielding to Hie demands. Both, however, put the decision squarely up to Washington. tt was reported that Baker asked the Americans how a withdrawal would af fect the bolder region and Mexico it-ai-if. They replied with a long code message which it is understood contain ed the opinion that a withdrawal would undoubtedly lend to new border raids. If Scott and Funston are instructed from Washington in time a second con ference may be held with Obregon to dny. Washington's reply is not expect . ed to be a peremptory refusal of the !

"I think they are mistaken," he said. Scott and Funston worked all night on code messages to Washington and to General Pershing. Funston stated that instructions from Washington received last night were not clear in several par ticulars. At (1 a. m. today the American envoys asked Washington to amplify its direc tions. The answer is not anticipated in time for the conference with Obre gon t oday. "It is my personal opinion," said Funston, "that there will be but one more conference with Obregon and that it will be brief." Gather Supplies on Border. Columbus, N. M., .way 1.

SALEM DISTRICT PRUNE POOLTQ BE T About 1500 Acres Represent ed, Making It Largest Ever Formed In County CALIFORNIA YIELD IS PLACED AT 65 PER CENT Prices Above Average Out look For All Oregon Fruits Is Unusually Good The Salem district prune pool will be closed tonight with about 1,500 acres signed up by nearly 200 growers, ac cording to the announcement of Man ager Robert C. Paulus, of the Salem Fruit union. There were 1,200 acres in the pool Saturday night nnd numerous growers were phoning to the fruit union officers today to give their acreage and ask that they be signed up with the other growers in the pool. The prune pool is tho largest pool handled by the Salem Fruit union and this year will have signed up nbout 1,500 acres out of the 2,500 in the Salem district which comprises Marion and parts of Tolk counties. As to the outlook for yield little can be said at this time as in most of the fruit sections of the district the trees are only now shedding their blossoms and it will be a. week or 10 days before any accurate estimate of the yield can be made. The pear crop will be short according to the best information in the hands of the fruit growers and the cher ry crop is uncertain. There Is n large acreage of cherries in benring this year and the fruit has set on well but many uncertain conditions of the weather have tu be met by the growers. The prune acreage in the Salem dis trict has increased from 10 to 1.1 per cent over last year but this will not decrease the price according to the Cali fornia reports, as the southern state ex pects bwut nbout 05 per cent of last year's yield. The outlook for prunes, both in quality nnd price is the best for years in Oregon according to Manager rniilus and outside of the apple pros pects the Oregon fruit growers appear to be facing a prosperous year. The following report of conditions in California whiclftiave a large influence upon Oregon fr.uit prices has been re ceived from the Prune and Apricot Growers' Information Bureau of Cali fornia and the reports relating to prunes arc given in full: Reports from practically all sections of the state indicate a very light crop. It is still early to make an accurato estimate, but we are led to believe that the IStlfl prune crop will not be in excess of 05 per cent of last year's crop esti muted at 170,000,000 ninds, nnd that it will probably run considerably less than that. Indeed, the statement is freely made in some quarters, that the. com ing crop will be the lightest since 1910 when 75,000.000 pounds were produced. In 19111, 90,000,000 pounds were pro duced, no according to these authorities the 1910 output will be between 75 nnd 90.000,000 pounds. One Snn Jose pack er has estimated the IPlfi crop In the Santa Clara valley at S., 000,000 pounds. On the other hand another packer places the output of this district at 05,000,000 CLOSED T III GH CIRCULATION FIGURES THAT ARE EXACT; PROVE THE CAPITAL-JOURNAL'S POPULARITY j; Following is the correct Capital Journal of Salem, Total Average daily circulation for the 25 days of publication during the month of April, 1916 CHAS. H. FISHER, Publisher. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 1st day of May, 1916. op.,x . . DORA C. ANDRESEN, oedi; Notary Public for Oregon. This circulation statement is printed because the publishers of the Capital t Journal believe that businessmen have a right to know wnen mey ouy advertising space in a newspaper, we mane no circulation claims simply a statement of circulation facts, which any advertiser is at liberty to in vestigate for himself. Our mailing lists, carrier lists and press run figures are at his service. We have no circulation secrets because we have no cause to be ashamed of our subscription list, and no good reason for misrepresenting it in any respect. The Capital Journal believes that it has by far the largest circulation of any newspaper attempting to cover this field and it is a legitimate subscription not padded by fake voting contests or wholesale distribution of premiums. Further more, 95 per cent of this circulation is in Marion and Polk counties, directly tribu tary to the City of Salem; -- fr44 pounds. In any event the outside dis tricts are probably considerably lighter than the Santa Clara district. The esti mated crop percentages from the va rious producing districts are as follows: Chico, 2.1 per cent; Colusa, 50 per cent; Napa, 40 per cent; Sonoma, 30 per cent; Solano, 50 per cent; Yolo, 50 per cent; Santa Clara, 50 per cent; Tulare, 90 per cent; Sau Benito, 50 per cent. Market: Since our last letter the prices for both spot and future goods have risen materially. As much as 5 1-2 cents has been offered for spot goods in Santa Clara county. During the past six weeks there has been a good movement in the old crop at prices ranging from .1 3 4 to 5 1-2 cents. The bulk of the 1915 prunes are now in the hands of the holders who expect to realize a C cent basis or better. The increase in the spot I prune price is mainly due, according to tho New York Journal of. Commerce, "to a marked increase in the consum ing demand." The market for the 1916 crop is in very good shape from the growers' viewpoint. There is a large short inter est still uncovered, as much ns, perhaps, 20,000,000 pounds or 20 per cent of the entire crop. Sales to dnte, in California by growers to packers, have not been in excess of 2,000 tons, and most of these sales have been on a 5 cent bailis or better As much as 6 cents has been of fered in at least one instance although this was a special case. The Bureau believes that there is no reason why any grower should sell his 1910 crop for less than 5 1-2 cents.
