PLANS AS TO MEXICO.
Believed That Hou*e Would Oppose
Washington, July 24.?Developments
in the Mexican situation today were '
- - * ~ r |
confined to informal discussion in sug-,
gested plans for -a definite policy on i
the part of the American administra>
tion towards its neighbor republic.
Every kind of plan has been sug- j
gested to administration officials from j
a mediation board of Americans to J
adjust the dispute and supervise the i
holding of an election to a tripartite
commission composed of representatives
from the United States and two j
, South American representatives who!
^ would attempt to bring about peace
"between the warring Mexican factions.
There will be no expression of policy
^ however, until after the conference between
the president and Ambassador
Wilson, which may not take place until
Monday, as word was received at \
the White House today that the latter |
could not reach here before Saturday j
While the plan of mediation was
scouted by the Constitutionalists's
representatives here as insufficient, as
they do not believe the Huerta government
now in possession of the electoral
machinery, can guarantee an
honest election, the idea has been
given some consideration by members i
of the senate and by President Wilson
as pointing the way to a solution.
Arms Embargo May be Lifted.
The question of arms also was discussed
today, and while neither side
^ or^tHncr war munitions from the j
AO 55V WCiiAQ * v..
United States, it is believed possible
that a change of policy might follow
the conference with Ambassador
^ Wilson. It is thought eventually the
embargo may be lifted and both sides j
permitted to buy supplies, subject to
ihe risks of contraband transactions.
* During the day the democrats of the
| louse cohimittee on foreign affairs
conferred about the American situatfon
sounded out sentiment among
members of the house generally and
recorded a decided feeling against intervention
and in favor of backing up
sny diplomatic move President Wilson
End his advisers may feel disposed to
Discussing the proposal to prohibit
entirely the shipment of arms into
Mexico from the United States Prof.
Francisco Escuidero, a member of the
. constitutionalist cabinet, wno is m
* Washington to explain the purposes of
the Carranza cause said today that
his colleagues were satisfied with the
idea, but hoped soon both sides would
ise permitted to get arms on equality.
Americans at Madera.
Further assurance thatlAmericansiat
Madera are in no immediate danger
was given by the State department today
in the following announcement:
>"From Chihuahua it is reported that
Madera has been out of communication
with Chihuahua since Sunday, the
m * 1 TTTAT*r\ I
r 13th, on which day ieaerai iruups ?ac
| withdrawn from the western part of
f the State. There was no reason to believe
that Americans in the vicinity
t of the town were in danger, according
to reports to the State department on
the 23d. The federal government has
promised to hake effort to relieve.
Only Six American Families.
"Consul Edwards, at El Paso, re
ported today that six families were
the only Americans supposed to be
at Madera on the 20th, and that they
were thought to be en route for the
"border. The railroad officials have
stated there is a locomotive and plenty
of box cars there at the disposal
of the men and road is in operating
condition for nearly 70 miles to the
North. The Madera company would
send relief if considered neceesary.
^ Gen. Villa is willing to assist."
f Reports to the State department say
the governor of Tabasco has sent a
force to the towns of Iturbide and
Allende, against marauders who sacked
two American plantations in that
Admirel Cowles in command of the
squadron on the Pacific coast, reported
that all was quiet at Topolobarapo,
but made no reference to Thomas
Hind, the American railroad man, for
whose safety he was asked to inquire
by Acting Secretary Roosevelt. It was
reported that Hind was held for ransom
AIKEN 3L4X SHOOTS THREE tfE>\
Jason Spires, Foreman of Grand
Jury, Severelv Wounds Two.
Aiken, S. C., July 14.?Aiken re|
ceived a profound shock early today
when it became known that Jason
Spires, an extensive planter and foreman
of the Aiken county grand jury,
ft "had with a magazine pistol and steel
g jacket bullets shot and wounded three
I men. One of the victims is an old
negro man. Dock Latimer about 65
years old. The other two are Moseley
and .Tenks Randall, two well known
young white men of this county. The
.shooting occurred near the home of

Washington, D. C
Mr. Spires, between 7 and 8 o'clock
None of the men are considered
fatally wounded, and all were brough;
on to the city, where their wounds
were dressed. The negro has a flesh
wound in the left thigh. The bullet
passing completely through his leg.
Jenks Randall was shot in the left
groin, the bullet making its exit from
the back. Young Moseley Randall is
probably the most seriously wounded.
He was hit twice, once in tne upper
right arm, while another bullet passed
through the upper part of the
right chest, grazing the lungs.
It is rather difficult to get any clear
story of the immediate difficulty and
of incidents or acts that may have
led up to the shooting, and it has
even been alleged that one or more of

The two young men who were
wounded assisted by another man,
were, by the orders of the county
commissioners, working a road gang
of nine men on a public highway
known as the Silver Bluff road, and
said to pass through the property of
Mr. Spires; that the latter objected
to the gang doing any work on that
? "/->o r? njiccinp- thmiisrh his

property declaring that he would work
it himself. The road was a public
highway, or at least has been so considered
for years, and the young mea,
:t is soid, ignored Mr, Spires' directions,
which, it seems precipitated
matters with the results in the foregoing
When the road work got ca Mr
Sr.ros' ^lace, the latter oanij to them,
ic is saiJi, and told them not to work
that part of the road, he would do
it himse'f; and he would shoot the
first men that lifted a shovel of dirt.
Mcseley Randall, it is alleged, proceeded
to throw a shovelful of dirt
iuto the wagon and Mr. Spires shot
him. Jenks Randall then ran forward
to lift his brother from the place
where he had fallen, when he himself
received a bullet from Mr. Spires'
magazine pistol. It is rather difficult
to find just how the old negro hap
pened to get in the way of one of the
deadly missies. Both Randall boys
state that they were unarmed..
Sheriff H. H. Howard and Rural
Policeman Holley arrested Mr. Spires
without any difficulty ad the grand
jury foreman has been arranging for
bail. It is understood that he has
already procured the services of
Messrs. Henderson as counsel, and
fthat he may retain the services also
of Senator John F Williams
The affair has caused a great dea}
of excitement today, and groups of
men could be seen on the streets discussing
