Minister Naon of Argentina, the
only one of the mediators in Wash

dent surprise. He indicated that the
mediators will take no action until
the attitude of the Constitutionalists
Is conveyed to them officially.
Secretary Bryan on behalf of the
Washington government said it would
be improper for him to discuss the
situation in advance of the arrival of
Carranza'S formal answer to the pend
ing proposal for peace conferences.
He declined to reveal what intima

The present purpose of'the Consti

the Carranza-Villa split is expected
to come to a head, the disaffection
probably leading to an effort to have
Carranza superseded. Reports from

the two chieftains had been composed
were verified by agents of both, but

The Joplin-Pittsburg Interurban
Lines Tied Up by Em
MEN HAVE MANY GRIEVANCES
Company Declares No Attempt Will
Be Made to Run Cars With
Jopliri, Mo. One hundred and fifty
carmen and shopmen employed by
the Joplin & Pittsburg Railway Com
pany completed their day's work at
midnight not to return to duty at 4
o'clock the next morning. The strike
ties up more than 100 miles of electric
lines in Southeast Kansas and South
The company's contract with local
Division No. 492 of the Amalgamated'
Association of Street and Electric
Railway Employes of America, to
which the strikers belong, expired
June 21. Whether the discharge of
employes by the company shall be
subject to arbitration is the main
point of disagreement now, although
a wage scale and duration of the con
tract are disputed.
The company announced that it
would not attempt to run cars. Thou
sands of printed notices of the Inten
tion of the union to call the strike
were distributed among miners of
Southwest Kansas, who probably will
suffer the most inconvenience.
It is the contention of the strikers
that elimination of arbitration over
discharge of employes would mean
disruption of the union because the
company would be empowered to dis
charge, arbitrarily, men who are the
backbone of the organization. The
company is holding out for a three
year contract while the union woulfi
limit to one year.
The strikers have been receiving 25
and 26 cent san hour, the latter sum
after being employed one year. They
now ask 33 cents an hour, which
the company has refused to grant.
Trackmen employed -by the com
pany have been on a strike nearly a
month, holding out for increased
wages. W. A. Satterlee, general man
ager of the company, said they arc
asking for an increase 30 per cent
higher jthan the scale on electric or
steam "roads in the Middle West. A
17 per cent raise on that basis has
been offered and refused.

Huerta Commander Near Vera Cruz
Notifies Gen. Funston To Ar

Torreon, Mex. General Venustianq
Carranza' has been recognized as first
chief of. the Constitutionalist revolu
tion and General Francisco Villa-vis
subordinate to him. This confirma
tion of the relative positions of Car
ranza and Villa was regarded as the
most important step taken at the in
ternal parley here intended to reunite
the Villa and Carranza factions.
In settling this point, the question
of supplying the division of the North,
which Villa commands, with coal and
ammunition probably will find an" au
tomatic solution. While General Villa
owes Carranza absolute subordina
tion, Carranza, on the other hand, is
obliged to meet the wants of the Villa

The conference is ended so far as
vital points are concerned. The
statement was made that, the result
of the meetings were satisfactory.
General Villa said:
"I hope that the outcome of the
conference will be beneficial to Mex
ico and that patriotic motives will
cause the compact to be kept."
Villa had little to say on the elec
tions held last Sunday in the terri
tory controlled by Huerta except that
it was a matter of secondary import
ance, or an attempt to wash out one
stain with another.
"It is not the practice of men to
buzz around like mosquitoes and
sting others when they least expect
it," said Villa in referring to accusa
tions of misconduct made against
him by Carranza followers' along the

Vera Cruz, Mexico. Brigadier Gen

the telegrams exchanged between the
American army headquarters and
Lieutenant Colonel Izunza, comman

In his dispatch Izunza said:
"A portion of my infantry outpost
has revolted and I am about to go out
to reduce them to order."
The Mexican commander said he
notified General Funston because he
desired to prevent alarm among the
American outposts in the event of the
mutinous troops seeking to entfr the
American lines or of an action occur
ring in their vicinity.
General Funston replied thanking
Colonel Izunza for his information.
He also assured Izunza that the fed
eral deserters would be arrested
promptly if they approached the
American outposts. No unusual ac
tivity was reported by the American
outposts during the night and no fir
ing was heard.
Washington, D. C. As viewed from
Washington the Mexican situation ap

here that no arrangements for such
a meeting could be made until the

between the Constitutionalist leaders.
