Nogales authorities said that, bas
ing their opinion on the little Infor
mation available here, they believed
that the leader of the seven bandits
was Ysiquiel Lara, who was one of
two Mexicans who killed Alexander
and J. A. Kraser and robbed the store
and postoffice at Ruby on February
27, 1920. The two Mexicans then fled
across the international boundary and
escaped. A reward of $500 which was
offered by the county at that time for
Lara's capture, still is standing.

Pearson came to Arizona from Tex
as for his health. He lived for a while
at Arivaca, Ariz., and became post
master at Ruby in March. 1920, after
the bandits killed the Frasers, one of
whom had been postmaster there.
The postoffice and store at Ruby is

WASHINGTON, Aug. 28. Although negotiations to define the scope
of the disarmament conference have not yet reached a foimal stage, it is
understood a preliminary step to obtain the views of the other powers as

The state department, it is understood, has been unwilling to be placed
In the position of taking the lead in framing the conference agenda, pre

offices, through their representatives in Washington. When the exchanges
have fairly defined the acceptable subject matter, it is probable Secretary
Hughes will prepare a tentative agenda for submission to the other gov
ernments. It is hoped this agenda can be completed before November 11.
but it is more than probable that even after the conference has assembled,
amendments and new propositions will be entertained.

CHUGWATER, Wyo., Aug. 26.
Posses are patrolling the wilderness
along Chugwater Creek tonight in a
search for one of two bandits who
sought to rob the state bank here to
day. . One of the bandits was shot by
Louis Schnell, garage owner, and cap
tured. He refused to give his name.
The other - escaped into a dense
growth of willows 'along the creek.
Cashier Robert R. Lollier was alone
in the bank about 1' o'clock, when the
men entered, covered him with ps
tols and ordered him. to direct' them
to the bank's money. Lollier ducked
behind the counter and ' ran into
Schnell's garage next door. Schnea
seized a shotgun and gave battle to
the bandits in the street.
The wounded bandit was taken , to
the' Platte county jail at Wheatland.
He refused to talk. '
The wilderness iuifi which the sec
ond bandit fled extends for several
miles along the creek, and tonrgnt a
efforts of the possesses were directed
principally to preventing his escape.
Tomorrow, officers said, bloodhounds
will be used in an. effort to run down
f the fugitive. '
Just before his capture, the wound
ed bandit threw away two pint bot
tles containing nitro-glycerine.
The bank only contained $1,500 in
cash at the time and though this was
in an accessible drawer, the bandits
overlooked it in their hurried search
after the cashier's flight. The wound
ed bandit wears a wooden leg.
Possibility that the bandits had a
confederate was expressed by SnerJff
Homer Payne, of Platte county, and
Sheriff George Carroll of Laramie
county, who are in charge of posses.
When the street battle started, a
small automobile was seen to speed
out of town in a direction opposite
the course taken by the bandits. .

Reiterates Declaration That
Complete Independence
For Erin Impossible
Premier j Willing to Discuss
Situation,. But is Tired
of Exchanging Notes
LONDON, Aug. 26. (By the Asso-'.
ciated Press.) David Lloyd George.
British prime minister, today sent a .
prompt rejoinder to the letter of
Eamonn de Valera. president nt the
Irish Republic, which rejected the
British government's term Tor peace
in Ireland.
The premier's note constituted
firm reiteration of the gpvernment's .
former standpoint, that Ireland could
hot be permitted to withdraw from
the empire. He said he thought he
had made it clear in conversations
and previous communications that the
government can "discuss no settle
ment whtch involves a refusal on the
part of Ireland to accept a free, equal
and loyal partnership in the British
commonwealth under one sovereign."
Lloyd George, in concluding his
note still held open the door for furth
er negotiations with de Valera and
his colleagues if they are prepared to
examine how far the government's con
sideration "can be reconciled with the
aspiration you represent." He declar
ed, however, that the government
could "not
prolong a mere exchange
of notes." '
In his communication, Lloyd Georg
preserved the same friendly tone that
has characterized his former letters
to de Valera. Today he buttressed
the government's standpoint by quo
tations from Irish patriots and Abra
ham Lincoln. He wanted de Valera
that a needless prolongation of the
negotiations would serve to play into
the hands of the extremists, who, he
declared, were only anxious to wreck
the negotiations- and terminate the
London Is Hopeful
A hopeful aspect of the situation
as it is viewed in Ixmdon political
circles Is that neither de Valera nor

"I must remind you. therefore, that
