ABC CONFERENCE
RESUMES THIS WEEK
Brazil's Minister to Mexico
on Way to Washington
to See Officials.
Secretary of State Lansing and Sec
retary of the Treasury McAdoo con
ferred In New York yesterday. From
a reliable source It was learned that
the portlble attitude of bankers toward
the financial necessities which will
arise with the establishment of a new-
government In Mexico were con
sidered. It was stated later that the Secre
tary of the Treasury will call upon
New York bankers to learn whether.
In case of the adoption of the Presi
dent's plan In Mexico, they will be
willing to make a loan to the new gov
ernment. It wag said that seven firms
are to be consulted.
Officials In Washington are begin
nine to realize that If the United
States stands sponsor for a new gov-
trnment in Mexico It will be forced
eventually to guarantee the large loan
which It will be necessary to arrange.
This fact. It la believed, lias caused
President. Wilson to hesitate, but tho
lellcf is growing that he will finally
consent to this assumption of respon
ubillty. On his return to Washington the
Secretary of State, denied that the con
ference had been for tho purpose of
considering means of financing "any
Independent faction In Mexico which
the United States Government might
feel obliged to support." It was' ad
mitted In Washington, however, that j
the financial problem Is one of the
most perplexing In connection with a
Mexican settlement.
Announcement Is made In n despatch
from Washington that Senntor J. M.
Cardozo de Ollvelra. Minister to
Mexico, who is aliout to leave Mex
ico city, has been invited to como to
Washington to advise tho Administra
tion regarding conditions In Mexico.
He has been looking after the Inter

In New Vork with Secretary McAdoo. He
denied that the meeting was for the pur

It had been expected here that of
ficials would comment on the financial
nd of the Mexican situation at this
time. There Is no doubt that It entered
rromlnently Into the discussions at the
Riaie Department In the last week ami
that steps will be taken If they are not
already under way to sound out the
financial powers In New York.
Financing the new Government which
ths I'nlted States In conjunction with
the South American republics hopes to
establish In Mexico has developed Into
ons of the most crlous elements of the
IToblem of restoring and maintaining
order south of the Rio Orande. Presi
dent Wikon himself has been Informed
that the new Government of Mexico will

n enormous loan, and that the funds

To-night was a sort of tryout, and If

There was water, water everywhere
as Mr. Sullivan of Hoston entered the

The Atlantic Ocean was pounding Its

Swimmers were swimming In the board

Sullivan waited around In the rain for
a spell and finally mounted the platform
half an hour late.
There was a ripple of applause ns Mr.
Sullivan entered the building. To
quote Paul Armstrong, he had the
clear eyes and red lips of youth. Mr.
Sullivan also wore a double breasted
blue serge suit with a small American
flag fastened In his buttonhole. Mayer
