"' (*! X VOL. XI. XO. 4. LEWISTOWN, FERGUS COUNTY, MONTANA, OCTOBER s. 1014. PRICE FIVE CENTS TO BE RESTORED PEOPLE ON THE INSIDE BELIEVE CARRANZA AND VILLA WILL GET TOGETHER. MEXICO CAN USE BOTH OF THEM WASHINGTON, Oct. 7—Speedy re storation of harmony between Gener als Carranza and Villa, through open conference at Aguas Calientes. was pre dicted tonight in a statement issued by the constitutionalist agency here. The statement quotes Richard Cole of Los Angeles, who, it says, is a personal friend of Carranza, and continues: "Carranza has no personal feeling against Villa," said Mr. Cole. "He feels that the general of the division of the north has been led to his present re bellious position by designing and un scrupulous persons, who have posed as Villa's friends. I think Villa is a big enough man to admit his mistake when it is once brought home to him. Mexico can use both the services of Carranza and Villa, acting in their proper spheres. "Carranza is eager to retire to pri vate life. He is worn out and only a sense of duty keeps him engaged in directing the constitutionalist cause. He has promised to visit the United States and make a few months' tour." Mr. Cole is here to seek recognition for the Mexican Central government. He said he exnected to confer with state department officials within a few days and would ask that formal considera tion be given the question of recogni tion. Consul Silliman, who has returned to Washington after a sojourn of three months in Mexico, as the personal rep resentative of President Wilson, re sumed conferences with the state de partment officials today on the Mexi can situation generally, without ref erence to the question of recognition, it was said. Pending the outcome of the preliminary conference at Aguas Calientes and the general convention which has been called to meet there Saturday, officials here say it would be unwise to give this question serious at tention. The constitutionalist agency an nounced today that an attempt to ar rest and extradite a number of former Huerta officials now residing in the United States probably would be made within a few days. The names of those whose return to Mexico is sought on charges of high crimes and misdemeanors are Felix, Diaz, Emiliano V. Gomez, Marcelo Ca ravo, Louis Medina Baron, Francisco del Toro, Relix Terrazo and Juan Cene gas, all of whom are ex-Huerta offi cers. Others whose extradition is con templated were not named today.
