Final Call to Mexican Fac
tions to Agree to Peace
WashinotoN". Aug. 4. Desperate ef
fort are helms made by rupporters of
Carranza In .Mexico and by hi legal
edviscrs In Washington o persuade the
first chief to yield to the pinpos.il nbout
. , .. ..I
to be made by the United Maes the
ABC nations of South Amer ca and
Bolivia, Uruguay nnd Guatemala, that
he lay down his arms and enter Into
peace negotiation with the other fac
tions south of the border.
It Is felt by Carranza'a ndvlsers that
If he refuses to support this plan for the
pacification of .Mexico he nnd those who
lem.iln loyal to him nre likely to be
tllmlnated from the Mexican situation.
If Car .inza maintains the attitude he
has uiiined right along he will at once
reject the proposal
It Is believed that the seven republic
.!ready h. agreed to act In concert on J
the Mexican question, and that when a
pwlflonal government has been estab
lished In aco rdance with the policy In
contemplation It will be made Impossible
for any faction to get arms or ammunl
.inn frnrv. either the fulled States or
....... . . - .v..
South America or fiom any of th
countries of Central America. j
Those who are disposed to criticise J
the new policy of the Administration
eompUln that It Is nut dealing Justly
with Carranz.i, Inasmuch as he con
trols a greater extent of teirltory than
th opposition and that he Is now In poi- '
lt Ion of the capital nnd most of the .
(ftiports of the country.
Not Fit to Hair.
The reply made to thin contention Is ,
tbu Carranza is not uz strong as he
appears to be on paper and that the
tMtlmony of most Americans who htve ,
dta.lt with him Is that he Is tempera
mentally unfit to rule.
The conference to be held at tho Stat
Department to-morrow will be called to
order by Secretary of State Lansing at
2:3ft o'clock. In addition to tho diplo

"Of the two soldiers wounded, one
died this morning. When the fighting
occurred tho Mexicans were In houses,
and as the party of deputy sheriffs and
soldiers approached the Mexicans opened
fire, wounding two soldiers and one
deputy. The Mexlcana then ran Into
the brush and disappeared. Lieut. Lutz
returned the, fire and captured two men,
one boy, six horses and seven saddles.
"The prisoners were taken to Nar

doubt Hint some of the party came frohl
the Mexican side, The territory Is well
surrounded with troops, but the brush
and cactus are so thick that It will he
illflicult to prevent escape In small
parties. No need for more troops."

Kmplic entered to-day Into n solemn

until England's enemies go down to

affair of pomp and show, but was
marked by studied simplicity, a fact
which added to Its Impietxlvelicss, No

the streets of London. No military
guards lined the road: nl ! ere anil

had little tumble In holding in check
the jrontl n.tured crowd anxious to
acclaim the King.
That the King himself desired to
get Into as close touch as possible with
the people of lyindon on this occawinn
was ehoaii by the f,,ct that outside of

the war a single resolution was read and
presented lor adoption. It had been ar- ,
ranged by tho central committee for
National Patriotic Organization, of
which Piemler Asqulth Is chairman, nnd
was as follows :
"That on the anniversary of the decla

All Immense and enthusiastic audience
filled the London Opera House to-night
for the lelehratlon or the annlvr-rs.iry
of Hie declaration of war. Speeches by
Arthur J. Halfour and Sir Hubert Hor

asm. Thousands of persons were held
outside becau.e tho opera house was
llllcl to Its rapacity.
Mr. Halfour's m.iiti silnts In a highly
Important speech may be summarized In
the following order: The nation's re
solve Is stronger and Its confidence In
victory Is greater than was the case a
ear ago; the 'enemy miscalculated
everything except the value or aiiiniu
nltliin and big guns, In this respect hav
ing gucs-ed more correctly than the Al
lies. If the Germans had fnrei.eiii how
the war was to go theie would have
; been no w,u . the mutual, confidence or

anie, the I rench and Itusslan fences
icier acted with greater glory or
heroism in their history.
"We look f iiwiinl with the most com
plete confidence." said he. "to the lime
when the mechanical differences between
the Husslans and the Germans will have
been swtpt away anil the two forces
will be able to mfet ou eipial terms. The
whole basis of the offcnsle during the

the Allies' superiority on sea. That
superiority has been secured by the
