tice Lamar's memorandum to Emilio
Rabasa, head of the Mexican delega
tion, announcing that the United
States "must insist" on acceptance
of its plan fo-- the pacification of
Mexico, is an ultimatum. Unless
the Huerta delegates yield, mediation
will end tomorrow or Sunday. This
formal determination of the United
States was conveyed to the medi
ators today.
Ambassador Da Gama, of Brazil,
and Minister Suarez, of Chile, asked
the American delegates if their po
sition had changed in view of the
Carranza-Villa split, and the -eply
was in the negative. It was an in
formal talk, but it served to advise
the mediators that the published
statements that the American and
Huerta delegates, with their opposite
view on the type of a man to be
selected for provisional president, de
fined the unalterable attitude of the
American government. Just what
the policy of the United States would
be in the event of
the failure of
mediation, or what disposition it
would make of the American troops
at Vera Cruz is unknown even to
the American delegates.
The Huevta commissioners say
they do not know what course of
action Huerta may pursue. Those

point, however, believe the president

Eagerly Await
Cabinet Choices
Of Gen. Carranzh
EAGLE PASS, June. 19. The nam
ing of the constitutionalist cabinet by
Carranza is eagerly awaited by the
constitutionalists as a possible means
of healing the breach between Car
ranza and Villa, according to arrivals
here who left Saltillo and Monterey
yesterday. There is a general impres
sion at those points, according to the
travelers, that Carranza would name
his official family within two or three
days. Should the men named be sat
isfactory to the Villa faction, those
conversant with the situation hoped the
differences between the two leaders
might be made things of the past.
The name of General Felipe Angeles
has been mentioned for a cabinet post.

the American army will be marked
by a special pilgrimage under the
auspices of the National Society of
the Sons of the American Revolution,
staiting from Philadelphia next week.
"The clattering cavalcade," which
escorted General Washington to Cam
bridge, and which Irving' has said
"was the gaze and wonder of every
town and village," took nine days to
make in a hurry, a journey which
could easily be accomplished by rail
today between breakfast and dinner,
but the proposed pilgrimage will be
leisurely one by automobile, starting
as Washington did on June 23, and
concluding with ceremonies at Cam
bridge on July 3 the day Washing
ton took formal command of the army.
It is expected that more than a
hundred participants will make the
ten-day journey all the way from
Philadelphia to Cambridge, and that

HCTTE, Jvtno 1:1. Kai-h faction of
the Butte local ot the Western Fed
eration of .Miners held committee
meetings today. The meeting of the
conservatives of the local was pre
sided over by Charles II. Mover,
president of the Western Federation
o! Miners, who came here with the
avowed purpose of putting tlfe local
union on a sound business basis and
tkep it from withdrawing from the
jurisdiction of the federation.
The seceders made arrangements
for a hall that will seat 5,000 for
their Sunday afternoon meeting at
which their plan of future action
will be disclosed. Moyer was ac

The aid of the United Mine Work

stroy organized labor and the Western
Federation of Miners in particular. In
order to assist in counter acting such
influences on behalf of your organiza

fronting you at Butte, I pledge our
united support."
Mr. Mover conferred with the of
fices of the Montana State Federa
tion of Labor, John C. Lowney, a
member of the executive board, and
U. R. McKenzie and C. H. Tanner,
auditors of the Western Federation,
together with officers of the local
union, including ISert liiley, presi

first time since the riots of last Sat
urday when the factional differences
between the conservatives and se
ceders of the union came to the sur
face. The Western Federation officials
will announce their . program before
the. end of the week, according to
Mr. Moyer, who in a statement is

LETHBRIDGK, Alberta, June 19.
A terrific explosion coming without
warning entombed 2"0 miners em
ployed in Mine 20 of the Hillcrest
Colleries Ltd., and of fifty rescued
only fourteen are living tonight.
Despite the efforts of two score mine
experts laboring amid poisonous
gases and debris, the hope of rescuing

I escaped.

! At dusk a silent group of wives and
mothers stood at the mouth of the
; mine, which had been closed by the
.explosion, still hopeful that rescues
would be made.
I The explosion occurred about
o'clock this -orning shook the coun
tryside for miles, lifted the roofs from
many miners' cabins and demolished
numbers of small buildings. A mo
ment after the explosion a score of
panic-stricken surface workers rushed
from the mine, followed by a dense
cio'id of smoke and poisonous fumes.
Appeals for help were dispatched
to many towns, and in the meantime
.he icsidents organized an emergency
crew and turned feeble and ineffec
tive hands toward the work of res
cue. When the first rescue crew ar
rived this afternoon a large force of
men set about to clear the shaft.
Thousands of tons of rock have fallen
into the mine and it is feared that
the men even had they escaped from
-.he gases, probably were crushed t-i
death by the falling debris. Thomas

Associated Press, who had seen Ca

asked the latter about his visit, Ca
brera expressed amazement.
"But you do not deny you were
there?" he asked.
"Certainly, I deny it."
"But you were seen."
"But can I not still insist I was not
there?" Cabrera replied.
After the departure of Naon, Bryan
sought a conference with one of the
legal representatives of Carranza in
Washington. But as it was late Bryan
failed to find the lawyers in their
office. It was learned later that one
of the objects of Naon's visit was to .
induce the constitutionalist leaders to
waive temporarily their objection to
