Wilton IlolcU a Coiirerencr, President Wilson conferred with three members of the Senate KorelKii Relations Uommltb-e this evening, includliiB the chairman. Senator liauoii. He also had a talk with Speaker Clark. It is unusual for the President to bo a,t hla office on Saturdays, but he made, an exception late this afternoon and .this evening. There were ruraojSB. that thu President was discussing with Senator Hacon and other members of the Senate committee the latest developments in the Mexican situation with a view of la lug the en tire matter before Congress. No confirmation could be obtained of these reports and there is reason to be lieve the President may have discussed with some of the Senators the situation regarding the currency bill much more seriously than he did the Mexican tangle. The Impression here Is that the Mexi can situation haa not reached a point where the President desires to take the members of Congress entirely into his confidence. Krom Vera Cru the Navy Department tecelveil word to-day of Hear Admiral rtetcher'H transfer of his flag to the battleship Khode Island and of the mov ing of tho flagship to the Inner harbor of ire Jiort.

Telephone users who maintain over the telephone the same standards of courtesy that obtain in a face-to-face conversation, build for themselves a business asset of lasting value.
