The Carranza communications were barely mentioned at the confer ence, which was devoted to the ques tion of selecting a provisional presi dent to succeed Huerta. - It was the third day of the discussion and as fruitless as the previous meet ings. As rapidly as the American del egates mentioned a name, the Huerta delegates cited objections to it. A telegram to Carranza followed the receipts of a note from Rafael Zubaran, special representative of Carranza in Washington, announcing the appoint ment of Fernando Iglesias Calderon, Luis Cabera and Jose Vasconceles as the constitutional delegates to the me diation, at which, according to the view of the constitutionalist chief, "it is sought to settle the international con flict which has risen between the Unit ed States and the Mexican republic." The mediators told Carranza they feared he "had not duly considered" their communications- requesting an armistice and that his representatives should discuss the entire Mexican prob lem. Their notification was sent to Carranza at Saltillo after the American and Huerta delegates had been in con ference for two hours discussing the personnel of the new provisional gov- i ernment without any agreement.

Officials of the Washington government had no hesitancy in admitting tonight that there is a crisis in tlie Mex ican mediation conference at Niaga ra Falls over the selection of men to represent the proposed provisional government to succeed the Huerta regime. Administration officials, how ever, stilly seemed confident that the conditions presented would be met and that hopes for the peace of Mexico were by no means abandoned. Word came from Niagara: Falls late today that the South American mediators had replied to the recent note from Carranze, stating that his offer to send delegates would be ac ceptable only on condition he would agvee to cease hostilities against, the Huerta government. That Carranza would not consent to such a condition has been repeat edly asserted by him. This develop ment, therefore, caused no change in the diplomatic situation in so far as the United States is concerned. It is stated in official quarters that the United States has- &en proceed ing in its dealings with the media tors at Niagara Falls on the basis that there could be no settlement of the Mexican p.-oblem unless the war ring factions there could be brought to terms. Developments in the Mex ican internal conflict lnrin' the hist few months, it was pointed out, have J made it apparent that the Huerta government could not survive, irre spective of mediation and that there i could be no provisional government worthy of the name which did not '.-ecognize the revolutionists. With this position as a base, it has been revealed that the Washington government suggested, through its representatives at Niagara Falls, the Rushing Admits ML Lassen Eruption Of Volcanic Nature r ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH MINERAL, Cal., June 15.

Pa A aJs Only Constitutionalists Meet With Reverses At Zacatecas ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH El. PASO, June 15. News of con stitutional reverses at Zacatecas were received here from the south as well as by press dispatches from Mexico City. Reports from Torreon failed to tell of Villa's departure to help Natera. although it is saiil here that Villa's men are moving toward Zacatecas as rapidly as the condition of the railroad will permit.

The first news to this ef fect came from Washington and sur prised most of those who heard It, because it followed a quiet day. The governor declared the steps were merely "precautionary." It is feared trouble may result on Wednesday when the union men ballot on the ouestion of showing their cards. ; The Insurgent faction of miners , went to work, as did the conserva I tive, without being asked, as is I customary, to show their union cards ! and the union officials, driven to shelter in the rioting on Saturday, remained under cover. The governor, who arrived early today from Helena, vigorously denied the report that he had ordered the militia mobilized, and also denied the report that he had actually appealed for troops, ex plaining that his inquiry was as to their advisability in "case a contin gency should arise." Governor Stewart in his telegram to the president said there are only 500 militiamen in Montana and that he feared serious trouble was liable to result within the next few days.
