This warning to the Mexican leaders

latin American Governments whose
representatives were called Into con

result of tho first session of the con

Rinsing this afternoon.
These conferences will be resumed to

The notice to the Mexicans, which
rlll constitute the next step In the
Tresldent's plans lor restoring peace In I
Mexico, will jn effect really be an ulti
matum to Carranza. Inasmuch as Villa
nd Zapata already have agreed to co

situation In Mexico, the next summons

must either come In with the two other
leaders, or be eliminated through the

an Inexcusable state of anarchy "which

The fix diplomats were assured that
Trts dcnt Wilson has no Interest In per
sonalities In the Mexican situation, but
that he is solely Interested In terminating
the present situation and restoring the
le'gn of law and order In the revolution
The President's advisers are very
hopeful that his purpose can be accom
plished without armed Intervention by
the United States, even If Carranza
should balk. They belfeve this can be
done through unlimited support of a
man or group of men to be selected

One of the plans under consideration

Cornish, N. H., Aug. &. When Sam
McCllnton, assistant postmaster here,
dropped a batch of mall to reach for a

didn't know he was marking a milestone

hours when another voice asked him If
he could give him the times for the
opening and closing of malls north and
"Yes," said Mr-McCllnton.

While Mr. McCllnton waited an auto

He gave the President the desired list
and then retired behind his barred win

funny," he said, "but It was the Presi

Why Mr. Wilson wanted to get ac
