Americans Recognizing Impor

(By Associated Press.)
Niagara Palls, June 13.-The crux
of the Mexican probiom, the selection
of a man for provisional pr?sident
acceptable to all factions in Mexico,
and foreign governments generally
-was reached taduy in a conference
between the mediators and the Amer
ican and Mexican delegates.
For more than an hour names of
various individuals were dlrcusBed, but
on none was th vre semblance-of any
agreement. Tomorrow there will be
another conference, on the ?aaie sub
ject. Details of the peace plans are
practically set aside now for thu great
er part task ot finding the mon cf the
hour-he who can reconcile the war
ring factions and maintain peace while
a Conrtltutiouallst election IB held and
normal order resumed.
Incidentally General Carranza's note
transmitted by Rafael Zuburan, his
representative in Washington, arrived
today advising mediators that Con
stitutionalist delegates were on their
way to the mediation- conference with
The mediators made no comment on
the note. It contains no reference to
any ai mist ice, op which the mediators,
have been insisting and there was
nothing to show that tho-mediators
had In any way altered their.determi- ?
nation reached yesterday not to. ad- '
mit officially > the representatives of
The Constitutionalist representa
tives are needed hero to facilitate the
course of the'., peace program in Its
present stages tor in the discussion of
names they can be of much service to
mediation generally by indicating who
will or will not be acceptable.
At the present the mediators have
accomplished only ooe step In the
Journey toward the pacification. of
Mexico. This was the adoption yea
terda of the first protocol dealing with
the . transfer ot authority from the
hands of the present regime to a new
provisional government. Today's dis
cussion of the Second protocol defining
th? composition of the new govern
ment, its. form and personnel, was dis
cusssd by the American and Mexican
delegate* In an informai talk with the
mediators.- No-agree me nt was'reached
In the phraseology ot thk* plank in
the!peace plan, but it ls considered as
most likely that .lt will be set forth
that the new-government shall con
sist of a provisional president and
four cabinet ministers, comprising the
portfolios of foreign matters, finance,
war and> Interior. ,
Discussion baa: continued about the
type of men-for the provisional presi
dency, tho Mexican delegates claiming
that he should bo neutral in the sense
of not having boon Identified with any
political faction and the United States
insisting that ?her shall be of Consti
tutionalist .sympathies ao aa to pacify
that'element, bttt neutral and fair in
his dealings with all. It practically
has been' resolved to abandon gener
al lt lea absut. types and search for
the man whom all snail accept.
It can be ptated on the highest au
thority that the American delegates at
no time have suggested the name of
General Villa or General Carranza and
that they never intend to do so. They
think someone whom the Constitu
tionalists .will trust should bo placed
in power but dont themselves favor
a man who ?s so violently partisan
that he might be guided by prejudice
in the'performance of hts functions.
There are - no indications that an
agreement will he reached on tbs pro
visional president for many days, at
least,'although there ls likely to be
an early.' agreement on the organisa-,
tlon and form ol ute hew government.
Various. plans are before the medi
ators, o commission of five with, one
executive, a junta gobierno or council
bf three and.:a prov! ^ohai president
and four cabinet'minister. ,
The. huit will' be Insisted od .by' tfce

constitution. , Tho American delegates
realise the Importance or form in this
connection and Will probably offer no
objection to that kind of an adminis

ceived during the day the formal an
