a great service. It is going to oblige
every man to know that he lives in a new

Atlantic City, N. J.. Oct. I.-Disruption
of the Mexican peace confence was
Lvsrted today by a split among the mem
ers of the Mexican delegation.
Senor Alberto Pani apparently broke
tway from his assocates, Senors Ca
3rera and Bonillas, and made it clear that
, compromise must be reached between
he counter claims of Mexico and the
Jnited States.
Cabrera and Bonilas have maintained
hat Cerransa was justified In refusing
.o regard the international affaire of
ilexic as an official part of the com
nission's businees. They have insisted
hat Mexico should carry out her own re
orms In her Own way.
Senor Pani, on the other hand. believes
hat it would benefit Mexico an much am
he United States to have the co-opera
ion of this government in the following
iroposed reforms:
Protection of American lives and prop
rty not only along the border, but In
he interior of Mexico; the re-emtablish
nent of the Mexican currency and bank
ng system upon a sound.basis; the ad

Will Modify Banking Decree Pending
Discussion of Issue.
The vigorous protests made by Great
Britain and France against Carranza's
lecree which threatened to destroy the
'rench and English banks at Mexico City
tave caused Carranza to yield to these

greed to modify his decree so that
Irance and Great Britain are now wili
ng to discuss matters further with him.
Carranza Is also said to be showing
less aggressive attitude on the subject
f taking Pershing's army out of Mexico.
ntimations at the State Department yes
erday were that the Mexican commis
ioners at Atlantic City were no longer
nsisting rn the discussion of that topic
o the exclusion of all others.
Army offleers see in this change of
1ront the result of Ambassador Arre
ondo's visit to Carranza. They believe
krredondo has convinced the First Chief
hat there is no hope of getting Pershing
cross the border until the commissioners
lave agreed to discuss a scheme for the
ehabilitation of Mexico.
(0 BORDER SETTLEMENT

There will be no definite result of the

Yield to Farmers.
(By the Internatiemal News service.)
New York, Oct. 5.-With important con
ceasions by both sides, the milk strike,
it was freely predicted tonight, will be
over by sundown tomorrow.
The first break came this afternoon in
the hitherto united ranks of the big milk
distributors. On the verge of the State's
investigation, with its consequent delving
into the finances of the milk trust, the
Borden Company, largest distributors of
milk and cream in the city, announced:
"We accede to the demands of the
farmers for an increase of 45 cents per
hundred weight on milk. But we refuse
to bargain collectively with the Dairy
men's League or Food Commissioner
John J. Dillon. and we refuse to sign con
tracts with the farmers for a longer
period than on: month."
Other companies-aithough outwardly
frothing with anger-announced that they
would be forced to follow the lead of the
Borden Company. which normally
supplies New York with 20 per cent of
its milk.
With this concession by the distribu
tors, city and State officials bent every
effort to bring the Dairymen's Lague
officials to terms.
Their efforts were unsuccessful.
But the prediction wa.s freely made
the farmer would win completely to
morrow.
