MORQ LJS c5c SON
Niagara Kalis, Ont. The mediators
proposed a new course of action which
will not only prolong the proceedings,
but eventually may work out a solu
tion of the Mexican problem.
Tho plan contemplates separate con
ferences between the Americans and
representatives of tho constitutional
lats. Justice Lamar and Frederick W.
Liuhmann would continue their deal
ings with the lluorta delegates
through the mediation board. In this
way all elements In tho Mexican situa
tion ' would be drawn together and
there would be no necessity for the
declaration of an armistice until some
agreement was reached and approved
by the rebels.
The plan wbb said to be a result of
the vlHlt of Minister Naon, of Argen
tina, to Washington, where President
Wilson Is understood to have empha
sized the w itten statement of Justice
Lamar that my agreement reached by
the medial in board which was not
approved y the constitutionalists
would bo paper agreement" and
would not accomplish the sole pur
pose of k United States, the paclfl

rnnza to id his representatives to
