President Wilson and Secretary
Bryan Consider Sending Peace
Envoys To Mexico if Order
is Not Restored
Evidence Proving Ambassador’s
Connection With Huerta May
Be Produced
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. —Mexican
affairs furnished the topic for discus
sion at a conference between Presi
dent Wilson and Secretary of State
! Brvan today. They considered the
plan which the president has Tn te
serve should the negotiations now in
progress in Mexico City between lead
ing Mexicans, who are trying to
| frame a peace agreement, prove fu
tile. This plan, while details of It
|are withheld, contemplates sending to
Mexico a representative commission,
headed by a high official of the state
department, possibly John Bassett
Moore, the counselolr. to Investigate
conditions, and recommend a peaceful
The president and secretary of
state have I en informed that the
negotiations in Mexico City have al
ready progressed to such au extent
that the resignation of President
Huerta is imminent.
The administration has under con
sideration making public a sharp re
buke to certain elements in this coun
try who are carrying what the presi
dent lias termed to his callers a cam
paign of misrepresentation. Inspired
stories of imlmnent foreign interfer
ence in Mexico, the administration
evidence indicates, are put forth by
certain persons having big land min
ing interests in Mexico, who hope to
reap a golden harvest through Amer
ican Intervention. It Is positively
denied today, on the authority of the
president himself, that there has ever
been received here either en official
(or unofficial threat of European inter
ference if the United States does not
consent to intervene with its army
and navy to restore peace.
The president believes that the
better class of Mexicans are a unit
in desiring peace. He hopes that the
pressure from within is ho strong
that this result will soon be attained.
He is understood to have told cer
tain of his calelrs that inasmuch as
It Is now* positively known that he
will never recognize Huerta, Mexi
cans generally can be depended upon
to rally around anew leader.
Tht* attemnt to line up the senate
committee on foreign relations against
the president has failed. He has been
assured by Senator Bacon, its chair
man. that no action will he taken
without his consent. Bacon asked tHr*
president for evidence, in his hands,
which refutes the story told by Am
bassador Henry Lane Wilson, and it
will he presented to the committee at
Its next meeting. It consists of docu
mentary reports prepared by different
Individuals and it flatly contradicts
some of Wilson’s main statements.
It Is understood that It concerns the
alleged close relations between Huer
ta and the American ambasasdor. Un
til It has been thoroughly considered
there will be no action by the senate
committee on any of the resolutions
now before It which deal with Mexi
can affairs.

arguments between committee mem
bers, counsel for the National Asso

lake up the cross-examination of Mar-1

tlons prepared by the N. A. M.
There still remain 135 written ques-!

tlie committee agreed to permit the |
counsel for tlie N. A. M. to Interpolate (
additional questions, where tlie wit-;
ness answers made this necessary. i
The questions submitted by the N.

writing protestations of friendship to
N. A. M. directors, he was secretly at
tacking them and endeavoring to* soli
or give away the letters and docu

The decisions published were ob
tained in three cases under the in
weeticide set of 1910 brought against
the Lewy Chemical company, in New
York, N. Y., which pleaded guilty in
each case.
The first case was brought on tlie
ground that an article shipped into
interstate commerce ami designated
as ’ Extra Refined Camphorated Flake
Compound—Destroys Moths and In
sects,'' was misbranded because the
substance did not contain camphor
out naphthalene, and would not de
stroy moths and insects as promised
when used in accordance with tite
printed Instructions. The court iin- j
posed a fine of $25.
The second case was based on 1
the adulteration and misbranding of a
product shipped in interstate com
merce us "Cedar of Lebanon and Cam
phor for the Prevention of Moths.”
Analysis by the department of agri
culture established that this sub
stance did not contain camphor but
consisted wholly of chips of cedar and j
that these chips wore common red
cedar and not true "Cedar of Leb
anon " [n litis case the court suspon
ed sentence.
»The fhlrd case was based on the
misbranding of an article, shipped in
interstate commerce, known as ' Ex
tra Refined Chinese Tu Na Camphor
Compound.” Analysis showed that this
preparation was neither camphor nor
camphor compound but consisted of
naphthalene. Moreover tin* package
contained less than the one pound
staled on the container, and the arti
cle was not maufactured or produc
ed in China. In this ease also the de
fendant pleaded guilty and the court
suspended sentence.
The importance of securing convic
tion in such oases is that it enables
the government to publish widely to
the people a notice that convicted
manufacturers have been misbranding
or adulterating their products. More

be suicidal His superior officers
agreed with his diagnosis, and it was
planned to try a sort of demonstration
in force, with the hope of scaring or

Tin- living squadron wag rushed to
tin- barricaded house, where Kehan
sat t a window, clutching the revolv
er, and with the rifle across his knees,
keeping a sharp lookout, and incident

upon Kehan, standing at the head of

At 5:.30 o’clock. Patrolmen Barron.
