WILSON PREPARES. STATEMENT TO" EXPLAIN HIS POSITION TO THE COUNTRY The "Niagara Ealls Mediation Conference, as a means of bringing peace to Mexico, seems to have beerr doomed at a White House conference-last night, attended by President Wilson, Secretary of State Bryan, and Minister Naon of Argentine. The Argentine diplomat learned that the United States will stand absolutely firm in its demand that a constitutionalist be appointed to the, provisional presidency of" the southern republic to succeed Gen. HuertaT He learned that the only hope for the success of mediation lies in the possibility that the Mexican, delegates may yield from their demand that 'a "neutral" be appointed to the head of the provisional government, The possibility that the Mexicans will yield on this vital point generally is regarded as remote. i Confer" wltn. Bryan Minister Naon conferred with Secretary of State Bryan for three hours yesterday " afternoon.. He had come to Washington on the lnlUaUve of his dlplomaUc col leagues., .unexpected by "the Washington government. His purpose' was to make Inquiries If the United States had in mind to make Any alteraUon In its demands which would open the way for accept ance by the Mexican government. DlKnulon Is Ileutcd. Secretary 'Brian, after a long discus sion with the minister, which became heated toward the end. suggested that th.v m mother to President Wilson In order to hearfrom -Mr. Wilson tamself M final statement ofthls government's position.

The mediation Interchanges probably will not be terminated Immediately, how ever. It Is expected that at the sugges. tton of the mediators the scope of the conference will be narrowed to the pur pose of adjusting the difficulties existing direcUy between the United States and the Huerta government, which grew out of the Tampico flag incident, and other Insults to the United States by federal officials. The continuance of the inter changes on this basis will leave oppor tunity for the advancement at anj time of proposlUons which may be formulated by either side for the setUement of the bigger problem. Vi llnoii I'reiiarrs Statement. It Is believed further that in the event of abrupt termlnaUon of the conference provision will be made for its reassem bling at any time when a likelihood arises that an agreement can be entered upon. President Wilson has prepared himself for the failure of the conference by writ ing a strong statement of the reasons which have animated the United States. He will make this statement public as soon as the cessation of the interchanges Is announced. So strong was the Presi dent's conviction that the Mexican dele gates would reject a plan for a pro visional government submitted by tho Americans that he prepared his statement before Minister Naon arrived at the White House. Officials last night learned with interest of the announcement In Mexico City that Gen. Huerta would appoint Pedro Las curaln minister of (foreign affairs. A re port reached here that Huerta intends to resign following Lascuraln's appoint ment, so that the new minister of foreign affairs may, under the Mexican constitu tion, become provisional president 6 He "Was n. "JVentral." Lascurain was one of the so-caUed "nevtrals" auggeated'by the Mexican del egates for the" provisional presidency. The announcement of Huerta's Intention to appoint him minister of .foreign af fairs was regarded as an Indication of Huerta's Intention to carry out. regard less of the attitude. Of the United states. the plan which he had, put forward for a setUement- The .action or the medi ators In sending Senor Kaon to Wash ington is viewed as a diplomatic effort to place the burden for the failure of media tion upon the United States- The expec tation that existed here since the faUijre of the' conference first seemed probable that the South American envoys would seek to hold theVnlted States responsible for such an outcome. It had been known that they supported the. contention of the Mexicans that the provisional President CONTINUED O.V PAGE SIX. - as vtMkisd trips to Atlantic 'sea. shore resorts via Baltimore and Ohio every Friday and Saturday.

New Tork, June 19. Dr. Howard A. Knox, assistant surgeon In the United States Public Health Service, announced at the second annual meeting f the Eu genics Research Association at Columbia University tonight that he believed the "missing link" had been found at Ellis Island. Dr. Knox told of the strange Individual he believes to have been a "throw back" to the caveman, or. as the surgeon him self calls him, "the man Darwin 'wrote about,. but never saw." The man's full name cannot be dis closed, according to the rules of the service. He was called Joan, came from Finland Just twp weeks ago and was de ported on account of "constitutional In feriority." He was of average height, but his strength was prodigious. , "His gait was roving and his eyes con stantly searched the ground," said Dr. Knox. "His features were distorted with a strange grin, rather of recognition than of understanding. His forehead was startllngly receding, his ears much lower In the head than Is normal with man, placed exactly. In fact, as are an ape s ears. The top of the head was round and covered with coarse, wiry hair. Undrr .fnvi Protrudlntr. "The under Jaw stuck out much too far, and in place of canine teeth he had long fangs that made his lips protrude. The eyebrows were shaggy and the ridges above them were unusually prominent, another ape characteristic lacking In man. The nose was of the spreading saddle tjpe. "During his examination the Finn was docile anil In a dumb way good-naturAl. He had had four jears schooling and showed the mentality of a ten-year child. "The big toes of each foot was like a thumb 'and could be used for any pur pose that the latter1 could be put to. The most remarkable feature ofthe.case was the hands which were ape-like In nearly every iartlcular' According to Dr. Knox many of the recent Immigrants from certain countries have shown marked Indications of men tal and phj;lclal Inferiority "With the present laws," he added, "we are absolutely powerless to stop them, although It be a simple matter to do this If we had definite ph) steal stand ards. VnlU Stay Here. "It would seem from my observation that It Is the unfit of all classes who show the strongest tendency to remain here at the present time, for It Is here that the struggle Is easiest and it Is here that the kindest provision Is made for their existence, and It Is here that the law of the survival of the fittest does not apply." Dr C V. Davenport, of the Carnegie Institute, Washlngton.poke of "heredi tary emotional criminal traits " Arthur Hunter, of the New York Life Insurance Company, gave details of a study of 2.000.000 individuals In actual Investigation. He said that saloonkeep ers, and. in fact, all persons connected with the sale or manufacture of liquor, show an excessively high rate of mortal ity. Men twenty-five pounds or more under average weight, he said. In the early ages show high death rate and a tend ency to tuberculosis, but after reaching the age of thirty-five their vitality is greater and their tendency Is to live longer than men who are normal or over weight. Men who are overweight have a tendency to diabetes and kidney dis ease. , STAND BY THEIR GUNS. rarrlcnns llnnd Down Ultlinntnm at Mediation Conference. bpmal to Tbe Washlncton Herald.

If you know anything of boat racing you " cannot realize the mental anguish of a boating enthusiast or a boating expert when he finds that a boat race has prac tically run away and hid from him. but the said anguish is terrible simply ter rible. That part of the race whieh took place in public was great, and while we did not see the finish, we violate no confidence In stating that it was very close and very thrilling. After putting the various ru- xiors we have heard together, and then deducting a little something for Imagina tion, we should say that Yale won by tho length of the bump of accumulation oa tbe bow oar's head.

It Is true they started the second varsity befor the experts or spectators could reach tha scene, but the finish did not escape, as It did In the afternoorf. In other vears the varsity race has been started at a point up the river and the crews have rowed down stream, which strikes one who does not know a great deal about boat racing as being more In accord with the laws of nature than the practice that was pursued to day.
