that you owe your promotion to no per
son or persons, but to our long and
Regarded as Promotions.
'You owe much to the peop'e tr
Wivemnhtofi, who iuc so onstanily
supported jou in the pertormamo of
our duihs. and they in turn owe much
to jou. 1 hope thai In time their d lit
to jou will grow the larger, for tins
reason that I am anxious that ou
should become the best ofllccrs the force
has ever had.
in the promotions that have taken
place i.crta!n transfers must occur. 1
wish it to be understood that such
changes do not in any degree reflect
upon the administration of anj officer"
or men. They are rather to be reKanled
as advancements in each rase. The
Commissioners have sought the best
man for the place where his work will
be the most effective '

At Solicitation of A. B. C. Conferees
Carranza May Be Represented at Ni
The mediation conferences at Niagara Falls were post
poned today from Monday to Wednesday upon request of
the Brazilian ambassador.
His request, State Department officials believe, was
based upon a desire not to rush the Huerta delegates.
They are scheduled to arrive in Washington at 1:35 to
Plans for departure of the mediators and delegates
were upset by the postponement, but the State Department
planned to arrange a new itinerary.
State Department officials insisted there are no hidden
reasons for the postponement, but claim that it arose solely
from a desire on the part of the Spanish ambassador and'
others to entertain the Huerta delegates in Washington.
Arrangements may now be made for a special train to
convey the entire mediation party to .Niagara Falls.
At today's Cabinet session the Mexican situation was
i discussed at very great length. The gravity of conditions'
j resulting trom the lack of
Silliman and Orderly Parks was admitted, but the matter
was left to the State 'nd War DeHEtaSflls
