The split between Carranza and Villa has been complete, it was learned tonight on the highest authority. Villa will proceed with his army toward Mexico City, disre garding General Xatcra, whose appointment hf Car ranza as head of the new central zone evidently caus ed the open breach between the northern zone com mander and the comman-der-iiL-chief. This, for the first time, made clear the relations between Carranza and Villa, and it is said of ficially that Villa's forceful taking over of the Carranza offices at Juarez is but one StCD ill the ll'Clieral plan to ; oust all of the Carranza ele ments in the territory Villa' dominates While not declaring he is not under Carranza 's or ders, Villa is known to have told his chief that he will take the central strip of country lr'lfIiliT to Al evieo ' Citv, while Carranza "s other divisional commanders can do likewise, down the east; and west coasts. Accord ing to this arrangement there will be two distinct governments, both military aiul civil, in the northern half of Mexico held bv the revolutionists. One would be A'illaV strip, where not only his military leaders, but his own appointed civil officers, would hold office. The other would be that direct ed by Carranza in his capac ity of military and political chief of the movement from the capital at Saltillo. It is not to be doubted that General Obregon, comman der of the western military zone, and General Grmzales, in the east, will remain ad herents to the Carranza party. Villa Makes Denial TOP.REON, June IS. General yilla issued the following statement re garding his relation with Carranza: "I have received today many tele grams from different newspapers of the 1'niteii States asking what is the matter with Carranza and myself. I have already said through the Associ ated Press there is nothing between Carranza and myself which has in any way altered our military policy.

June IS. .' mevican delegates to the Mexican conference made public tonight a statement issued with the consent of. the Washington government in re ply to a statement given out last night by the Mexican delegation, criticisms the American plan for the establishment of a provisional gov ernment in Mexico, with a constitu tionalist head. Suggestions that Wil s n had any intent to destroy the electoral liberty of Mexico was "ut terly repudiated" by tile American delegates. 1 1 The statement covers the whole i range of the criticism made bv the i Hue.'ta representatives. Coming on the eve of the full conference tomor row between mediator and delegates which is to determine whether there is any chance for an agreement through mediation for the settlement of the Mexican problem, the state ment stirred the mediation colony. It :s interpreted as foreshadowing the unalterable and unyielding- position of the I'nited States in the future parleys. The statement says: "American representatives do not think it conducive to the interests of mediation to publish during its pendency various plans or conten tions of the parties, but the Mexican representatives have given out a i formal statement of their objections to the appointment of a constitution ist as provisional president, because among other things an election con ducted by such provisional govern ment would not represent the will of I tbo .Mexican people and it has been thought necessary to give in part anjence to write an agreement which answer to the letter written by Mr. i many would consider desirable; but Uabasa.

"It would be an object of folly for any leaders to impede or in any way hamper the great work of our cause now that we are almost in reach of our goal. It would be simply be mad dening to wrangle about individual differences. , "We will fight the enemy of our peo ple and his minions until we have com pletely vanquished them.

She drove away immedi ately in a motor car with a woman chauffeur and rebuffed the efforts of friends to make her go home.

"Hope is expressed that the Mexi can irepresentatives will not further oppose the only plan which proposes peael, when its rejection means suf fering and death to so many.

"The American government seeks only to assist in securing the paci fication of Mexico.

American objections to the plans approved by the Mexican rep- resentatives have been based upon the profound conviction that the adoption of that plan would not stop the progress of the victorious army nor bring the speedy peace which the American government so sincere- desires.

Hope for the success of mediation has by no means been abandoned by those in close touch with the adminis- i tration. Their hope is said to be based largely on developments in the consti tutionalist ranks and the view held here that internecine squabbles among Carranza's followers have been nipped in the bud thus enhancing the chance of an agreement being reached upon a provisional president of Mexico and the chance that internal Mexico hostil ities might be checked. Having failed to induce the United States to accept their so-called com promise candidate for provisional pres idency it was reported here that Huer ta's delegates might at the last minute yield to some one suggested bv the I'nited States, even if he bore the stamp of the constitutionalists in order to hold up the military campaign against Mexico City with Villa com manding the military operations and such culmination is declared to be possible. The chief subject discussed during the day in official quarters and also among the agents ofGeneral Carranza in Washington, was the action of Vil la in Chihuahua. Information reach ing the official here with respect to the constitutionalists there by Villa's order, was to the effect that Villa acted strictly within his authority. It is as serted that Villa acted not as a general and subordinate to Carranza, but in the capacity of governor of the state of Chihuahua. Official reports from the south refer to formal statements issued from con stitutionalist headquarters denying that any rupture occurred and at the same time convey information that strong influences are being exerted with probable success to bring the first chief and the ranking general of the constitutionalist army into complete accord. The basis for this it is ex pected, will be found in the recognition of Villa's complete control over the constitutionalist arm. Further evidence of the desire of the Huerta government to avoid any addi tional issue with the I'nited States government has been afforded by the release of an American named F. J. Smith who has been held under arrest on the west coast near Aeapulco, on "harge of being implicated in the killing of three Mexican rurales who attacked his home.

He suffered from a sharp attack of chills while on board . the tender. It I was the first occasion on which he had felt a chill since he left New York. He explained that it was a recurrence oft he effects of the jun gle fever, which was to be expected. The colonel declined assistance and crossed the gangway to the liner un aided, but he retired immediately to the imperial suite on the Imperator, which nad been assigned to him and his cousin, Phillip J. Roosevelt. Emphasis was placed by rhilip on the statement that the colonel is not suffering from any disease of the larynx but from weakness which would prevent him speaking from the platforms of trains and similar exposed places. lie said however, the colonel expected to fill his en gagement in Pittsburg on June 30. His great desire, however, in the meantime is for a period of home life at Sagamore Hill during which he could rest his voice and forego politics. Among the first to greet Colonel Roosevelt on the tender was Law rence Abbott, who told the colonel that he was going to interest him in golf, but Roosevelt replied that he did not feel like chasing a pill over a ten-acre lot. MANY SAY FAREWELL. LONDON, June IS.

Among them was Waller Dines Page tiie American ambassador with the staff of the embassy and Admiral Lord Charles Beresford. Roosevelt, who had arranged to embark on the Impevator was in a cheerful mood. He said to reporters: "Tell the English people I have en joyed myself and fully appreciate the courtesies shown me when I address ed the Royal Geographical Society." As the train steamed out of th" station, a photograph was taken of Roosevelt anil Lord Chavles Beres ford shaking hands.

CLAUS, HSU FOG IS CAUSE OF MANY SEA ACCIDENTS North German Lloyd Com pany Has Another Vessel I in Trouble and Several MhiOr Accidents Al'e ported Alvng Coast ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH LONDON, June 1S. The fog which has been falling and lifting inteimit tently over different parts of the British coast for two days has caused an unprecedented number of acci dents to shipping. The North Ger man Lloyd Company has been the principal sufferer. While the com pany's staff at London and South hampton were liusy docking the Kaiser Wilhelm II, which was badly ripped in a collision with the Ince more yesterday and was debarking her passengers, they received a sec ond shock in the news that the com pany's steamer Buelow, from Yoko hama, with more than 3"0 passen gers had stuck her nose tightly into the rocks of Blackner Bay and was held fast there. This accident was without loss of life as in the case of the Kaiser Wil helm because the sea was perfectly smooth. The Buelow resisted the attempt to pull her off with three tugs. Her iner skin had not been penetrated, but it was considered advisable to transfer the passengers and baggage to tugs. Later the passengers were sent to Weymouth, and from there by special train to London. Colonel Roosevelt's London friends were startled by a message which the local news agency circulated this af ternoon that the Imperator, on which the Colonel was to embark, had gone ashore off Bemhridge, Isle of Wight. The Imperator soon disproved this report by steaming into Southampton. The American yacht Utowana went ashore at Chapman's pool. The Bri tish yacht Cariad also grounded in a fog near St. Albans bead.

She was released yesterday evening after the jury in the case brought in a verdict of "Not Guilty" and the cell in the county jail which has been lier home since that fateful night in April when she sent the speeding bullets into the body of her husband, will know her no more. She was taken in charge by Mrs. Yaple, shortly after the verdict of the jury was rendered and will j spend a few days with her new found friend before leaving for her home in Colorado to join hex mother, who is ' living there. The long strain under I which the young girl has been accen ! mated during the hard week of the I trial, is now over, and it is expected by her friends that she will soon be- i gin to again look the fresh young crea ture she was when he first came to this section last year. The closing scenes of the trial were quietly dramatic yet none the less tense. They occupied the entire day, beginning in the morning with the masterly effort of Judge A. C. Baker, and ending when the jury silently filed out of the box at 6:35 and silently re ceived each a grateful handclasp, from the young girl to whom they had given a new lease on life. All day long elo quence and logic, coupled with force ful statement and no little vituperation occupied the attention of the twelve good men and true who had been gath ered from nearly every corner of the country to try this case for the state.

An hour later court took a re cess until this morning believing the jury would remain deliberating the questions at issue until the next day. This however, proved not to be the case. At five minutes after six, tho bailiff notified the sheriff that t agreement had been reached and in stantly communication was obtains with Judge Phillips and the attorr.ss in the case. At 6:25 Judge Philb.s and Attorney Alexander Baker auu ti. G. Crowder arrived as did counsel for the state. The prisoner was brought in and the formalities usual to such an occasion were gone through with be fore the verdict was read. When Clerk Thomas read the Ver dict "We the jury find the defendant 'Not Guilty'," Mrs. Mullanax who had been closely watching every move ment, buried her head in her hands and burst out crying. The strain was over she was again free. For a few minutes she sobbed, in a silence brok en only by the quiet voice of Judge Philips as he thanked the jury for its services. Then the jury filed out and Mrs. Mamie Mullanax pressed forward and shook the hand of every man of the body. The sincerity of her thanks caused many an eye to dampen, and not a few tears of joy were shed, among the interested few who had gathered to hear the Verdict. Then came the clearing of the courtroom and the freed girl was lead away by her friends. The morning session of the court, until fifteen minutes past the noon hour, was taken up by Judge A. C.
