MEXICAN POLICY Join European Powers In Exerting Pressure Upon President Huerta p OVERTURES MUST BE MADE AT ONCE Wilson Will Deliver Message Tuesday Unless Huerta Takes Definite Ac tion—U. S. Backed By World Wide Sentiment ■Washington. August 34.—Besides Great Britain, France and Japes, prac tically all the Central and South Ameri can countries are lending their support to the efforts of the United States to bring about a peaceful settlement of the Mexican revolution. Unless satisfactory overtures are made by the Huerta government before Tues day, President Wilson will proclaim in person, in a mesage to both houses of Congress the principle that constitutional government alone can he recognized In Mexico, He also will outline the sugges tions of the United States for the elimi nation of Huerta and the establishment of a legally constituted administration In the southern republic. , That the United States Is backed by a world wide sentiment in Its peace policy Is conceded In diplomatic circles here. Tangible evidences of the attitude of Prance came today In the news dispatches from Paris, stating it was practically cer tain President Poincare and Foreign Min ister Plnchon would not receive Francisco f>e La Barra, appointed minister to Fiance by Provisional President Huerta and now en route to his post. Will Not Be Welcomed His status. It was pointed out In the ad vices from Paris, was similar to that of General Felix Diaz, special ambassador to Japan from the Huerta administration, who, It was announced In Toklo, would not be welcomed, except as an Individual. Great Britain's statement recently that the recognition of Huerta had been pro visional pending an election, taken to gether with expressions from France and Japan, all of whom have formally recog nized Huerta, are the only public mani festations of sympathy with the policy of the United States In opposing Huerta, but In the quiet realm of diplomacy a greater tpressure Is being brought to hear upon the Huerta regime to yield to the American suggestions for peace. Assurances that Lattn-Amerlea stands by President Wilson have been Informally nuretved here. STlds had heen expi'cted, howevev, as the interests of Central and .South American countries, where,volatility of government has prevailed through mili tary dictatorships, are admittedly in line with the attitude taken hy the United States In the present situation. Completes Message While Preslden Wilson has completed nis message, which will embrace not only p summary of the proposals made by John TJnd and the reply of the Huerta gov ernment, but also a statement of the policy to be forwarded by the United States, administration officials were re ticent to discuss what, course would be pursued. They pointed significantly, how ever, to the lifitln-American statement issued by President Wilson during the first fortnight of his administration, and declare It would be the basis of what he would have to say on Tuesday. In that statement the President an nounced he earnestly desired “the most cordial understanding and co-operation be» tween the people and the leaders of America," and said: “Co-operation Is possible only when sup ported at every turn by the orderly pro cesses of just government based upon law, not upon arbitrary or irregular force. We hold,.as 1 am sure all thoughtful leaders of republican government everywhere hold, that Just government rests always upon the consent of the governed and that there can be no freedom without order based upon law and upon the public con science and approval. We shall look to make these principles the basis of mutual intercourse, respect and helpfulness be tween our sister republics and ourselves. “We shail lend our influence of everj' kind to the realization of these prin ciples In fact and practice. Knowing that disorder, personal intrigue and de fiance of constitutional rights weaken and discredit government and injure none so much as the people who are unfortunate enough to have their com mon life and their common affairs so tainted and disturbed. Friends of Peace "Wo havo no sympathy with those who seek to seize the power of gov ernment to advance* their own personal Interests or ambition. We are the friends of peace, but we know that there can be no lasting or stable p«*ace in such circumstances. As friends, therefore, we shall prefer those who act in the Interest of peace and honor, who protect private rights and respect the restraints of constitutional provision. Mutual respect seems to us the indis pensable foundation of friendship be tween states, as between individuals.” The President pointed out that the United States had nothing to seek in Hatin-America, but the “lasting inter ests of the people” and “the surety of the governments, intended for the eople and for no special group or interest.” These are the principles on which President Wilson has based his attitude of non-recognition of the Huerta gov ernment, set up through the overthrow by arms of Francisco Madtro, the legally elected ruler of the country. It is to secure a return to constitutional government that the efforts of the Presi dent are dedicated and the resignation of Huerta, therefore, has been made the (ContLnned on Page Two) BANKERS’ ACTION TO WORK NO CHANGE IN CUfiRENCYMEASURE Administration Forces Vig orously Indorse Bill As It Now Stands ADMIT MERIT OF SOME PROPOSALS Senate May Finally Work in the Changes, But House Expected to Pass Original Measure—Many Suggestions Made Washington, August 24.—The answer of the administration forces in the House to the critcisms of the currencj' bill made by the conference of bank ers at Chicago yesterday will bo a tightening up of the lines and a more vigorous indorsement of the bill as it now stands. Informal conferences of j democratic members of the House cur | roncy committee today empaslzed the fact that the active supporters of the President's currency plan expect to pass the measure through the House with out substantial change. The amendment proposed by the bankers, it was pointed out by House leaders today, all were considered in detail when the bill originally was pre pared and In the long debate ovef its provisions in the House committee on banking and currency. Change Not Expected The proposal to reduce the quantity of reserves and give country banks the privilege of keeping part of their re serves in the large cities had many sup porters and ultimately may be worked into the bill in the Senate, but the change is not expected in the House. The bankers will have an opportunity to present their views openly to Con gress after the currency bill gets into the Senate. Chairman Owen of the Sen ate currency committee said today that while hearings had not yet been ar ranged he expected leading representa tives of the various "factions” among the bankers of the country would be invited to give their views of the bill to the Senate committee. Merit in Proposal "I see a great deal of merit in the pro posal to reduce somewhat the quantity of the reserves,” said Senator Owen. .‘‘We have not discussed the new legislation sufficiently in committee, however, to know what changes may be made In the bill.” The fact that leading bankers hold dif ferent views of the effect of the new legis lation, particularly with regard to the pos sible reduction of loans and curtailment of cjrftdt^. has led members^ of the -Senate committee to believe that a further discus sion of the bill at open hearings would re sult hi winning the co-operation and sup port of a large portion of the country’s banking fraternity. Few ol’ the changes advocated by the bankers will receive favorable consider ation from the democartic forces in the Senate. Chairman Owen is unalterably I opposed to the idea of changing the feder al board of control so banking interests would have a share in its management or to creating a currency to be issued by the banks Instead of by the federal govern ment. Tt is believed a large majority of the Senate will adhere to the plan for treasury notes rather than notes issued by banks. Plan for Retirement Senator Shafroth, a majority member of the currency committee, tomorrow will In troduce In the Senate a proposed plan for the retirement of all existing eurrejioy ex cept silver certificates and the issuance of a general form of treasury notes ♦se cured by d 60 per cent gold reserve. Senator Shafroth'a bill also would substitute treasury notes at once for all outstanding national hank notes and would cancel the government bonds that now form the security for the national hank eifVrenoy. He said today Ills bill would save $14,800,000 in in terest now paid by the government on bonds used to secure national hank currency, a sum that would be in creased to $22,246,000 J.f the two per cent bonds were refunded with 3 per cents. “It would take the control of the currency out of the hands of the banks and place It in the government,” said Senator Shaffroth. “It would satisfy the bankers because it would cash their 2 per cent bonds without loss.” Request Hearings Many, requests for hearings have been received by members of the Senate committee. Among these are requests from offiers of leading labor organ izations. One such letter, from T. J. Dolan of Chicago, secretary-treasurer of the Brotherhood of Steam Shovel and Dredgemen, said in part: “The working men of the country are just as much if not more interested in the pending currency measure than any other class, as they are the peo ple who deposit their earnings In the savings banks of the country. I be lieve if representative men of the dif ferent classes of people Interested in this measure were invited to partici pate in a conference great good would come from it.” SERIOUS SHOOTING IN KENTUCKY Maysville, Ky..

I Sublime Port Opens Nego tiations With Bulgarian Delegate—Is Willing to Make Concessions London, August 26.—The sublime porte has opened direct negotiations with the Bulgarian delegate, M. Noohevitch, who hits remained, in ^nfc'Umiinqpl enlace he went there at the POtbreak of the Second war to negotiate an understanding with Turkey, ft is understood that the porte remains firm with regard to Adrianople and Kirk Kllisseh, but is prepared to make concessions in other quarters. Pierre Loti, the French writer, under Constantinople date, sends to the Daily Telegraph a vivid story of his impres sions on visiting Adrianopole and the surrounding districts. Loti says: “The Bulgarians have made of Thrace a desert surpassing in abomination every thing I had been told, and all that I had imagined. With what fury have these Christian liberators wrorked in order to accomplish so much destruction in a few months." Orgies and Massacres He describes orgies and massacres and violation and desecration in all the Turkish villages and asserts that Adri anople itself only escaped by a miracle because the Truks arrived a day earlier than was expected and so defeated the Bulgarian plans for a similar massacre there. M. Loti confirms the story of several thousand Turkish prisoners being herded on an island and there allowed to starve to death by the Bulgarians, those who survived starvation being massacred and protests in the strongest terms against Europe permitting Adri anople to be handed back to the Bul garians. He says to do so would be a crime and express the belief that the Russians have been misled and that when they know* all the monstrous truth they wnll realize that to take up the cause “of this small, deceitful and ferocious people, this opprobrium of the great Slav family would be to soil their history with an indellible stain." Powers Unable to Agree London. August 24.—The Vienna cor respondent of the Daily Mail declares that the powers have been unable to agree on any plan to coerce Turkey. France apposes any financial pressure, while Germany objects to moral pres sure.
