Mayor Kelly Will Take Initiative in Arranging a Joint
Meeting "o&Qounty Officers and Chamber of Com

ALayor C. E. Kelly and Walter Clayton, alderman and president of the cham
ber 7?Bmmeree, express themselves as heartily in favor of the suggested confer
enj&nf national Ipaders to-be held here in the neaciuture to investigate and dis-

J county officials, the chamber of commerce board, and business men, to discubs the
' proposal. 1 believe the conference would be of much value in giving to public men
who must finally act upon the question, a mass of first hand information that
they could not get in any other way. The plan is good and to obtain best results
the meeting should be arranged soon."
President Clayton of the chamber of commerce said: "The plan for a con

Conference Should Be Held.
B. Blumenthal, alderman If the pri
mary object of the conference would
be for the nurnose of having the con
gressmen and senators acquaint them
selves with the true conditions as they
exist in Mexico, and to devise ways
and means whereby the American citi
zens in that country would be afford
ed protection, I am heartily in favor
of the proposition being carried out.
The plan suggested by The Herald
should have been carried out a long
time ago. It is- an excellent one.

To Learn Ileal Condition!!.
W. K. Brown, director of the cham
ber of commerce It would be proper
to have just such a meeting here at
thjs time. This would give the people
away Irom the bwrder'a. chance to -learn
the. real conditions -and get reliable in
formation from , the' people who have
been n Mexico.
"Would Show Weakness of Taft.
Dr. Hugh Crouse-r-The .suggestion of
The El Paso Herald fpr a Mexican con

would take the matter-oat of the hands
of the state department and would -call
attention to thp inefficiency of this
department and the' weakness of the
president. The conference Should be

may get next to the whole thing. It

Kherlff P J HHwards It would be
a good plan to havo such a conference
here. I think the real facts would be
developed so that the United States
could see how we are being treated in
Mexico. They have contempt for
-Americans down there.'
Blnmcs Consnl Hdivnrdx.
Judge T. A. Falvey Anything that
will develop the truth so that the gov
ernment can -act fwill be good. The
consul across the river is largely re
sponsible for the government's mis
taken idea about conditions here.
Should Be Held at Once.
iouis K. Behr. city tax assessor and
.ollector My opinion is, that both the
uiues and the conditions in Mexico are
3uch that it is imperative that a con
ference such as has been suggested by
The Herald should be held. It should
have been held six months ago. A
conference of this kind would serve to
get the real facts before the people. '
Washington, D. C, Aug. 7. The house today without debate passed tie
Bailey resolution making immediately available SlOtJ.OOO for the transportation
to their destination of the refugees at El Paso and elsewhere.
Representatives Smith, and Slayden got it through without objection. The
resolution as amended yesterday by the house committee, went over to the sen
ate and the amendments will probably be agreed to this afternoon and the res
olution signed by the president.
Following -tie Washington dispatch, pnblisbed in The Herald that tie Texas
delegation in the house had received no word from Texas favoring tie appro
priations, several telegrams were received urging tie appropriation.

This I do not think has ever been
done. Better have the conference and
have the facts brought out 'by it. than
to wait and have something terrible
happen in Mexico before people will
wake up to the Mexican situation. 1

I think it should be carried into ex

A. M. Walthall judge of the 44th

by The Hetald. It is the only way,
to get at the situation, and when the
committee comes, they should be suffi
ciently advised on every little detail
of the whole situation, in order that
they can act on their own Judgment
The government should then act on the

right now and it should "be held as

to arrange conditions in regard to our

representation, allowing one delegate
in the national convention for each 10,

didate at the preceding election, and
one delegate for eacli congressman at

A proiision in .the rules that no fed

the convention would listen to a speech

MUST DC RESPECTED"
Washington, D. C Aug. 7.
The American embassy at Mex-
Ico City and consul Kdwards at
Juarez have been instructed to
O renew their representations to
& the Mexican government and
- the rebels that American rights
must be respected. The recent
attacks on the Corralitos ranch
and Candelarla mlnc3 are re

RIfaSiHemjiryez, minister of
west of ErPSgjJpd was met V Gen.'Pascual Orozco, who rode out from Juarez on the -Mexican side with a party
of his staff offk:ersfe"Ijbe result of the secret conference between the federal government cabinet member and the rebel
commanderinchief 'Sjnor made known.
It was declared by Enrique C. Llorente, Mexican consul here, that the conference was not official," though he
admits ;that it took place. Consul Llorente says that Gen. Orozco sent for Senor Hernandez, andthat the meeting was
unsolicited on the part of the federal government.
Hernandez arrived here last night, on his way to California. It was announced this morning that he merely
stopped over in El Paso for a day's respite on the journey. It was said that he was on a purely industrial mission, and
that his trip along the border had nothing to do with the revolution.
On his return from the trip to the smelter, Hernan dez declared: "I just rode out with some of my friends
to show them where the peace conference "was held." He was a member of tfje peace commission of a year ago.
. '-, The minister was told that Orozochad ridden out th ere and that it was reported that he had been seen talking
with Orozco. He denied that be had seen Orozco. ' ' .
Orozco was not in Juarez at the time the Mexican minister went to "peace grove" and it was stated that he
Was out riding. '
Soldiers and others at the smelter, declare that at 1 2 oclock, a band of Mexican rebel soldiers rode up to a point
near where Madero had his headquarters opposite the smelter during April of 1911, and thai two men from trie Ameri
can side crossed the footbridge and met them. The leader of the rebels, they said, was mounted on a white horse and
they were certain it was Orozco. Two Mexicans, who said they knew Hernandez from a year ago, when he was here
