Brownsville, Tex., Nov. 16.?The Presideht-elect of Mexico, apparently determined to construct at once a policy of friendliness and understanding and unhamnered commerce he tween his own country unci this, is almost Insistent in his desire to meet personally and confer with the President-elect of the United States. Alvaro Obregon has invited Warren G. Harding to go to Mexico city, especially urging him to be present at Obregon's inauguration on November 30. The request is officially supported by Provisional President Do la Huerta. Recognizing that the itinerary for; Senator Harding might not permit of j an excursion into the interior of! Mexico, Gen. Obregon suggests that it j might be possible for him to pause! at Vera Cruz on his way from Colon to Norfolk. These requests are couched in urgent terms. The envoy of the Mexican Government and of Gen. Obregon stated that it was "the particular dosire" and the "very earnest desire" of the Mexican authorities. Itinerary Mast lie Followed. Senator Harding assured Elias L. ! Torres, the envoy, that it would give him particular pleasure to comply with the request, but he was afraid a trip to Mexico city was out of the question be cause of the demands of an itinerary that had been made some time ago. Ho left the way open, however, for a stop at Vera Cruz and for a conference with General Obregon at that port. Until Senor Torres arrived here Senator Harding had thought It best on the j whole to avoid contact with the Mexican Government or with individuals who will be In the coming Government He took the stand that, he was not yet President and that he did not desire to do anything that might embarrass President Wilson now. However, the Mexican Government and General Obregon have been so pressing in their invitation that he may see the situation in a new light. The belief here Is that a meeting between Presidents-elect Harding and Obrgon might produce happy results for both countries. In this part of the country Obregon Is highly regarded as a sincere and able man; perhaps Mexico's only hope. The border seems to wish for such a conference. It is possible, even probable, that the two Presidentselect will meet before the first of December and that in their meeting a brand new and stable policy of MexicanAmerican relations will be outlined.

Fall of New Mexico, generally regarded as Mr. Harding's special ad viser In Mexican matters. After the conference Senator Fall Issued this statement: "Mr. Elias L. Torres, special envoy from the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs, and Dr. Cuberto Hidalgo, and also friend and personal representative of General Obregon, President-elect of Metflco, spent an hour with Senator Harding and myself in the private car of Senator Harding. "Mr. Torres had come from San An- ! tonio with me. He was commissioned by the Mexican Government and also ; by Gen. Obregon to invite Senator Har- ! ding, during his present trip in Gulf and Caribbean areas, to visit the City of J Mexico as the guest of the Mexican Republic. It was Indicated as the particu- j lar desire of the Mexican Government and Gen. Obregon that Senator Harding should And It possible to be In the City of Mexico on November 30, when Gen Obregon will be inaugurated President of Mexico. "It was explained that no Itinerary j could be arranged for Senator Harding's \ trip to and from the Canal Zone by Which It would be possible for him to 0" In Mexico city on the day indicated, and yet to keep his engagement, heretofore , announced, to land at Norfolk, Va? on j December 4. "Mr Torres nrered the verv earnest desire of the Mexican Government anil of Gen. Obrogon that this visit should afford opportunity for a fitting testimonial of the friendship and amity if the Mexican people and State for the United States and likewise of the reciprocal feeling of the American people and of Senator Harding toward Mexico. "It was pointed out that since his own election to the Mexican Presidency Gen. Obregon has visited several places in the United States for the purpose of attesting the warm sentiments he entertains for the United States, and , therefore, that it would b" entirely ap- : propria te for Senator Harding, if he were so Inclined, to return the visit by accepting the invitation to Mexico. Reply Mu.I.- l?y Harding. "Senator Harding assured Mr Torres that it would give h m the greatest pleasure and de'lght to'accept tile in-, "Itation, provided it could be arranged as to dates and steamship movements without interfering with the previously arranged it'nerary for his trip He expessed himself as deep'y appreciating arc) fully reciprocating the sentimertof friend'lness which were attested by the Invitation and the cordial manner of its presentat'on. He suggested that it wou'd hardly be possible for him to make the trip Into the Interior of Mcx l<o so far as the City of Mexico or in br; a guest at the inauguration of Gen Ocregon, but he added that hp would consider arrangements to have the steamer on which the Hard'ng party will travel to the Canal Zone touch at tome Mexican port, probably Vera Ciuz, which would be a great pleasure to him, but he could give no definite assurance about such modification of plars.

KEST L K SSXESS CON7TIN FES Recognition Held Back by C.S. Because of Conditions Below Border. Bpeeial Despatch to Tun N'nw York Herai.d. New York ll-rdd Bureau. I Washington, l>. Nov. Hi. I Reporta of differences between provisional President De la Huerta of Mexico and President-elect Obregon, although officially denied, continue to reach Washington. They are. contributing to the State Department's hesitation to recognize the Mexican Government notwithstanding the desperate efforts being made to bring recognition about.before Gen. Obregon takes office. Reports from Mexico that the Mexican Supreme Court hud issued injunctions restraining the Mexican Congress from promulgating the election of Obregon, received to-day, added to the indefiniteness of information of conditions below the border. The State Department had received no advices concerning this action and at the Mexican Embassy it was said the promulgation of the election of Obregon had been made two weeks ago. State Department officials have received no information of any widespread disaffection relative to Obregun, but it is known certain elements in -Mexico are restless. Humors of the establishment ot a Bolshevist base in Mexico for an attack on public opinion in the United States, together with the reported state#nunt by Gen. Alvarado tliat he is, was and always has been a revolutionist, have had the natural tendency to make th State Department r^Mist the pressure that is undoubtedly being brought 'to bear from various sources for hasty recognition. State Department officials were evldent'y surprised on r the report that the Supreme Court had acted in a manner seemingly hostile to President-elect <ibregon, and nothing that has been, received from George T.

ISOLATION IS CRITICISED Charges Against Superintendent by Reduced Employee Refuted by Witnesses. Ar a result of the Investigation that Leon C. Welnstock, State Prison Commissioner, is conducting into the alleged ill treatment of Inmates of the jAew York City Reformatory at New Hampton, the superintendent of the institution, Sidney W. Brewster, anI r.ounced last night that the practice | of putting the convicts on a diet of I bread and water would be abandoned, and that hereafter the men In too punishment cells would receive full meals. The announcement was made alter Commissioner VVeinstock and Robert Beyer, Deputy Attorney General, had remarked while .Mr. Brewster was on th*- stand that such methods would r.ot be permitted. "The method of Isolating prisoners here," said Mr. Weinsioek, 'is worse than the isolation at Uannemora. 1 r.ever heard of anything like it." The majority of the witnesses who appeared before Mr. Welnstock yesterday denied the stories of cruelty to prisoners told ihe day before by*John Kyati, former prison disciplinarian, who was reoently reduced to keeper by Superintendent Brewster. Ryan testified that theti were no checks on the guards and keepers of the reforma| t ry, and that convicts were Kicked and beaten without mercy. He cited ' st vcral Instances of men having been j beaten and of having been handcuffed J to the doors of their colls, and deI ,h.., man had died In solitary confinement. Victor Smith, one man named by Rynn as having been handcuffed, testified that this occurred last j car. before Mr. Brewster took charge of the prison, and while f^ewls ii. Uiwes, now Warden of Sing Sing, was superintendent. Mr. Brewster i introduced into the testimony also a re| port written by Ryan on the case of the I mm who died in confinement. This re| port showed that the superintendent had urged that the man be released, but that ! Ryan, as disciplinarian, had insisted that | he be kept in confinement on bread and water for several days longer. The Oatho'le and Protestant chaplains of t'-e prison testified that n'though they often a sited the prisoners how they were belt treated, they Iroi never receh'd nnv comj ':rnts s'ree M-.
