CARRANZA ACCEDES TO RE
QUEST OF INTERMEDIARIES
TO ACCEPT MEDIATION.
WILL STOP FIGHTING NOW
United States and Huerta Will Agree
to Armistice and Carranza is Ex
pected To Do So.
Washingotn.-Tho scope of media
tion plans for the settlement of the
Mexican crisis was suddenly broaden
ed so as to include the entire range
of Mexican affairs, not alone the criti
cal issue between the United States
and the Huerta regime, but also the
conflict between the elements of
Northern and Southern Rjexico which
have rent the republic for many
. This signal enlargement of the med
iation program followed the receipt
late in the day of a formal acceptance
by General Carranza, chief of the Con
stitutionalists, of the principle of me
diation, as proposed by the ambassa
dor from Brazil and the ministers
from Argentina and Chile.
Already the United States and Gen
eral Huerta had formally accepted the
?ood offices of these South American
envoys and now as a further step,
General Carranza has been brought
Into the deliberations so as to draw
every element and faction within the
range of any settlement which may be
Earlier In the day the mediators
made another decisive move in asking
the United States and General Huerta
io agree to an armistice by which all
aggressive military movements would
be suspended pending the outcome
nf the negotiations. The mediators
confidently expect both sides to accept
Hie armistice proposal. A separate
proposal for an armistice as between
Huerta and Carranza also will he
made, and with its acceptance all of
the warring elements throughout
Mexico as well ns the American
forces would maintain a military
status quo. The American govern
ment in its formal reply to the armis
tice proposal will stipulate expressly
that any untoward act toward Ameri
cans will be regarded as an infraction
of the armistice. The South Ameri
can envoys were in session through
out the day. Up to adjournment they
had progressed steadily on their
plans and foresaw a definite state
ment within the next few days of
their contemplated action. During tito
evening the envoys individually con
ferred with their colleagues in the
diplomatic corps from Central and
Soifth America to lay before them
what had been done and discuss the
BRITISH FACTIONS MAY COMBINE
Compromise on Question of Home
Rule Now Seems Possible.
Txandon.-A compromise on the
question of home rule for Ireland
seemed nearer than It ever has been
before. There was a strong belief in
Parliamentary circles that conferences
between leaders of the two great par
ties soon would be resumed.
The House of Commons discussed
the Ulster crisis again when it wound
up two days debate on Austen Cham
berlain's motion for a judicial inquiry
into the government's "plot" to crush
?be Ulster Covenanters. The motion
which virtually was a vote of censure
on the cabinet, was rejected by a par
ty vote of 344 to 264.
The growing belief that civil war m
Ireland is a reality winch cannot he
escaped if the present home rule bill
becomes law, bcoms to have in
fluenced members on both sides of
the house, as it has the newspapers.
The press of both opinions recently
has become more conciliatory in lone
than at any previous stage of the dis
Sir Edward repeated his offer that
if Ulster were excluded from the bill
"until this Parliament shall deter
mine otherwise" instead of the six
year period which Premier Asquith
had offered, he would submit the
proposal to the people of Ulster.

Confederacy, representing that organi
zation. The two organizations rep
resent 30.000 women in Georgia. For
commending the president's action
several resolutions were passed by the
House Favors Adamson Bill.
Washington.-The house interstate
commerce committee, it was an
nounced, has decided to make a fa
vorable report on the bill Introduced
by Representative Adamson of Geor
gia amending the act regulating the

authority to the secretary of war to
accommodate communities and derive
some revenue for tl" government
from projects constructed wholly at

Wilson Emphasizes That the Govern
ment Has Nothing to Do With
Washington.-President Wilson ex
tended the protecting arm of tlie Fed
eral Government to the state of Colo
rado, where because of riots and
pitched battles between striking min
ers. Governor Animons had found the
state militia unable to cope with the
I situation and asked for help. The
Colorado delegation in Congress, mine
owners and miners themselves joined
in the request.
It was one of the rare occurrences
in American history when a state
found itself impotent to assert its au
thority, but the President, in a tele
gram to the Colorado Governor, ex
pressly stipulated that the Federal
troops would confine themselves to
maintaining order only "until the
state can re-assert its authority and
resume the enforcement thereof."
The President issued a proclama
tion ordering all persons engaged in
domestic violence to disperse and "re
tire peaceably to their abodes." Sec
retary Garrison after a conference
with the President, ordered three
troops of the Fifth Cavalry from Fort
Leavenworth and two troops of the
Twelfth Cavalry from Fort D. A. Rus
sell, Wyoming, to Trinidad, and Can
on City, respectively.
The proclamation read:
By the President of the United
States of America:
"Whereas, it is provided by the
Constitution of the United Stntes that
the United States shall protect every
state in this union, on application of
the Legislature .or of the Executive
(when the Legislature cannot be con
vened) against domestic violence;
"And, whereas, the Governor of the
state of Colorado has represented that
domestic violence exists in said state,
which the authorities of said state are
unable to suppress: and has repres
ented that it is Impossible to conveno
tho Legislature of this slate in time
to meet the present emergency;
"And. whereas, the laws of the Igni
ted States require that in all cases of
Insurrenction In any state or of ob
struction to the laws theerof. when
ever in the judgment of the Presi
dent it becomes necessary to use the
military forces to suppress sucn in
surrection or obstruction to the laws,
he shall . forthwith, by proclamation,
commend such insurgents to disperse
and retire peaceably to their respec
tive abodes within a limited time;
"Now, therefore, I, Woodrow Wil
son, President of tho United States
do hereby admonish all good citizens
of the United States, and all persons
within the territory and jurisdiction
of the United States against aiding
countenancing, abetting or taking part
in such unlawful proceedings; and I
do hereby warn all persons engaged
in, or connected with, said disturb
ance and obstruction of the laws to
disperse and retire peaceably to their
respective abodes on or before tho
thirtieth day of April, instant.

unto set my hand and caused the seal
of the United States to be fixed.
