WASHINGTON, D. C., FRIDAY, MAY 29. 1914.-TWENTY PAGES. ONE CENT. CARRANZA AGREES T(1 IfllN MFflliTfflN iu juin miuwsMiiwii CONFERENCES NOW Constitutionalist Representative Bears Message to Deliberators at Niagara Falis. WANTS INTERNATIONAL ISSUES ALONE SOLVED Head of Mexican Rebels May Ee Denied Voice in Framing Final Agreements. SHOULD HAVE ACTED SOONER Sessions of Peace Negotiators at Standstill Awaiting Messages From Washington and Huerta. NIAGARA FALLS, t'nt.. M:-\ HtL Juan F. I niuidi. private sfcretary to Rafael Zubaran. the constitutionalist agent at Washington, arrived here today bearing a communication from Gen. Carranza to the mediators, saying he is willing to send a representative to the mediation conference to discuss international differences between the I'nited States and Mexico. Mr. Urquidi said he came merely as a messenger to deliver a communication and not to discuss issues. He expects to When he arrived at the Hotel Clifton he sent his card to Ambassador Da Gama. who sent down word that he was busy," but did not say whether or not j he would receive him later in the day. Although Mr. Urquidi declined to make I public the contents of the communication, it is understood that Gen. Carranza reiterates his original declaration that he accepted mediation in principle on the condition that international questions alone shall be discussed. Gen. Carranza's Position. G?n. Carranza is unwilling that the | question of a new provisional president i should be discussed at any international ! conference. He holds that the occupation j of Vera Cruz which directly gave rise to j the mediation proceedings concerns all Mexican factions as well as the Huerta government and that the constitutionalist I chief should have a voice in adjusting differences which caused the A me "'can j troops to enter Mexico. In his latest communication he re- I states his position and places before the ' mediators the question of whether or not | they will consider him in adjustment of the international side of the Mexican situation. The mediators held in their first communications with Carranza that the i'?> I ternational and internal questions were inseparable and asked that an armisiict be agreed upon between Gen. Huerta and Gen. Carranza. To this Gen. Carranza refused to agree and the mediators withdrew their invitation. May Have No Voice. When the mediators learned of the arrival of the constitutionalist agent, It was said, the negotiations had proceeded to a point where the constitutionalists no longer could hope to have j a voice in them. It was said the media- j tors gladly would have received a rep- j resentative of Carranza if he had ac- | cepted their offer when it was first made, but the invitation extended originally was withdrawn because of the refusal of Carranza to declare an armistice and because of his desire tr? he i informed in advance of the opening of j the conference just what points would be taken up. Conferences here are at a standstill awaiting replies from the Washington and Huerta governments on the plan of the mediators for the settlement of the Mexican question which is now before them. Secrecy Is Maintained. Even after the negotiations here had preceded well on their way, Carranza's representative would have been received if the constitutionalist leader had agreed to conditions met by the American delegates and Gen. Huerta's representatives. The mediators are maintaining secrecy in the present stage of their proceedings, but it is understood here that even the names of those who will compose the new provisional government in Mexico have been selected. None of them will be made public, however, until all the machinery is ready for the transition from the Huerla regime. Mr. Urquidi later wrote a note to Ambassador I>a Gama saying he was the I bearer of a communication from Gen. 1 Carranza and that his mission was solely I to deliver it. The ambassador sent word | that lie would reoiv to it shortly. lie) immediately went into conference with ' the other mediators and Mr. ("rquidi went I to his hotel on the American side to await an answer. After the c onference the- mediators sent to the American side to bring Mr. Urquidi to th* meetinu. Stand Taken by Carranza Apparently Undisturbing to the Officials Here The latest development regarding the p.ttitude of t'arranza toward the Niagara Fails conference on the Mexican situation apparently was not construed here as affecting the success of the negotiations. Secretary Bryan and other offl me.' ciiicrtra me w nite House for the cabinet meeting declared the situation was stiil "progressing satisfactorily." Constitutionalist officials still maintained the position that should delegates go to the Niagara conference they would coneider only the external affairs of Mexico. Officials Are Confident.

Roosevelt's prospective activities connection with his intended prcsi ntial campaign for 101G.

Among those in the first cabin were Sir Henry Seton Karr, a noted English lawyer and big game hunter, and Laurence Irving, son of the late Sir Henry Irving, and his wife, Mabel Hackney. Of a party of 140 Salvation Army members on board, only twenty were rescued. They had left Quebec yesterday, bound for the army's interna tional conference in London. So quickly did the Empress sink that those passengers fortunate enough to get into the lifeboats found themselves garbed only in their night clothes. Xo c baggage was saved. The condition of the e survivors was pitiable. Some had broken arms and legs, and all had suffered terribly. ' E. Gossetin, a prominent lawyer from Montreal, saved himself by clinging to a raft. When the rescue ship docked > here the station platform was converted ( into a hospital, and the townspeople, bringing food and clothing, united in a common effort to aid the sufferers. Twelve 1 bodies with faces covered lay side by t side on the wharf. They were passengers , who had made the lifeboats, but who ^ were fatally hurt. j Wreckage strews the St. Lawrence for ( a long distance near the spot where the ? Empress sank. The sun shone brightly during the forenoon. Though the water * is still icy, the temperature today was * not low enough to increase the suffering ^ of the survivors. Crew Comprises Majority Saved. The vast majority of the saved were fc members of the ship's crew. Early esti- ^ mates here indicated that not more than ? sixtjj passengers were saved. Besides r; Capt. Kendall, the hrst and second en- J gineers and the ship's surgeon were * rescued. The captain was too overcome to give at first any extended account of the disaster.

' In his answer Mr. Dean states that the tenant complained of occupied the apartment before he purchased it, and that he would not have tolerated her presence for a moment had he known or suspected her to be guilty of the acts alleged. He also says that he made every effort to ascertain the character of his various tenants and did eject one of them for suspicious actions, but that Mrs. Crowther was well recommended as a person of good character by an official of a local trust company which handled her estate. Mr. Dean further states that his lease to her provided against any unlawful acts upon said premises, and that since this case has been filed he has demanded that she move, and that she has, as a matter of fact, vacated the apartment, j He also states that if she is guilty of | the acts alleged that he is an innocent victim of her conduct, which he does not j sanction, and that he is ready, willing and anxious to abate any nuisance upon his premises, and to give bond if required to prevent a repetition of the offense. He is represented by Attorney Alvin L. Newmyer. Mrs. Crowther, the tenant, through Attorney Eugene A. Jones, also filed an answer to the suit denying the allegations made against her. This is the first suit filed under the act of February 7, 1914, to enjoin and abate nuisances. A temporary injunction by consent of the parties was signed today by Justice Gould.
