Two-Thirds Majority Not Secured in
House-Four Texans Voted Against
Overriding President's Veto.
Washington.-An attempt to pass
the immigration bill prescribing a lite
racy test for the admission of aliens
over President W\ilson's veto failed in

Representatives Buchanan, Burgess,
Hardy and Garner were the only mem

voted against overriding the veto.
The final test came at the close of
a day of earnest debate in which par
ty lines were temporarily obliterated.
Majority Leader Underwood made a
vigorous speech criticising the presi
dent's reasons for vetoing the bill and
urging the house, to override executive
disapproval. Mr. Underwood told the
house that the country had in several
elections returned majorities in con
gress favoring the restriction of immi

tention that no political platform had
placed the issue before the people was

the fundamental principles "upon

Representative Burnett of Alabama,
chairman of the house immigration
committee and author of the bill, said
that the fight will be made again In
the next congress.
The 261 votes for passing the bill
over the veto were cast as follows:
Democrats, 166; republicans, 78; pro
gressives and progressive republicans,
16; independent, 1.
Against the oi'l, the vote was: Dem

unique status for Mexico in the fam

The situation in the Mexican capital
has been replete with diplomatic em
barrassments since the rapid changes
in executive authority ensued. When
General Carranza in his capacity as
"first chief" of the constitutionalist
army first abandoned the City of Mex
ico and moved his capital to Vera Cruz
he invited the diplomatic corps to ac
company him. The diplomats formally
declined on the ground that such a
step might be construed as a recogn;
tion of his government. Since then
the relations between Carranza and
the foreign diplomats in the City of
Mexico have not been cordial.
It has become known that some dip
lomats at the City of Mexico had sug
gested that they go to Vera Cruz, not
as an act tending to imply recognition
of Carranza, but because of unsettled
conditions and scarcity of food in the
