FAVORS REBELS AT PEACE CONFERENCE
Mediators and Mexican Delegates Also at Niagara Falls
Willing to Admit Carranzistas if They Will
Agree To Be Bound by the Armistice.
?p. ? avu la til? Trihun- '
Mexico City. June 1.?It is learned from a wholly trustworthy
source that President Huerta's proposition for the settlement of the
Mexican difficulty involves primarily the admission of representa?
tives of the rebels to the mediation conference at Niagara Falls, so
that the questions affecting Mexico may be discussed and adjusted
between Mexicans exclusively.
With this basic condition Huerta couples the rejection of the
American suggestion of an interregnum or new provisional gov?
ernment in Mexico.
The adoption of that plan, he says, would imply an impairment
of nacional sovereignty.
General Huerta proposes, on the other hand, that elections for
President. Vice-President, deputies and state governors be held on
July ?5. according to arrangements previously made.
The elections in question are to be free and fair, and to that
end General Huerta suggests that the rebels have the privilege of
exercising supervision in those portions of the country that are con?
trolled by his government and his government agents in those por?
tions of the country controlled by the rebels.
Finally. General Huerta binds himself solemnly to the media?
tion conference and before the civilized world to hand over the
supreme power to the person who shall be elected at elections thus
