EkS loday on the senate floor and before

fc' affairs. !
f? Meanwhile the request had been re-;
fc rei-rcd by the state department to the

i ficlal diplomatic communication. No
f action had been taken tonight by the
'. I war department. j
k. In the senate, Senators Ashurst and
5r Smith of Arizona, opposed vigorously
auv suggestion that tho request be I

that Arizona should oppose any such
movement by force if necessavy should
the federal government not grant the
state protection.
Knox Interrupts.
The senate discussion v&s halted!
when Senator Knox, Republican, Pcnn-.
svlvania, announced that he had in f
formation that the request had been
refused, although later he said his in
formation was not oL'icial.but based
on a statement jn tho New York Sun,,
which had stated only that the permis

; "The peculiar motives which in-
v duced President Wilson to ado.pt the I

ifr,-, versy, tho former ambassador said.
l "Tho president wrote Article X ol
'$''.- the treaty himself and though there
jjj are mony more important sections
, - than it, he has caused widespread di3-
v sater by insisting that the whole treaty

E tinned Ho cannot be changed.
W-:$ '"Anybody who supports the Mexican;

't . -southern Maya. They have no concept;

The witness said that by "constant ;
interference" in its behalf President!
' Kj " Wilson kept In power the Carranza!
W 'r : government, which he described as an
"aggregation of feudal brigands."
J. , "As an illustration of how far he

tinued, "I expect to see permission giv-i
f-en Carranza to move his troops across)

forces in Sonora, as has been done be--"-

in Mexico, the more . unpardonable
since It is given to. a gi'oup which has

territory from El Paso, Texas, said
that under international law the troops
would have to be sent through Ameri

United States could not nliow the Car

until again on Mexican soil, and that
their arms must either precede or fol

take charge of the arms If. they ar

they were first. The decision of the

WASHINGTON. April IT. Govern
ment purchase of Liberty bonds ip tho
open market except through operation
of the sinking fund will stop July 1.
Secretary Houston explained today. A
"beneficial effect"' on the bond market
was expected to result, he said. Other
officials said the market in govern
ment securities had already begun to
right itself and that bond quotations
hereafter might be expected lo trend
Mr. Houston explained that in con
tinuing the purchase of bonds under
the five per cent bond purchase fund
the government was increasing its
floating debt while decreasing its fund
ed debt. He said that current require
ments of the government were such
that, if the purchase of bonds were to
continue, the treasury would have to
issue more certificates of indebtedness
I with which to buy them,
i Mr. Houston's decision was based
largely on the fact that on July l the
21 per cent sinking fund provided in
tlie Victory loan act becomes operative
He said it was not his intention lo
treat the two funds as cumulative but
to end one with the biginnlng of the
The approximate amount set aside
by tlie treasury for use in the period
between no vr and July 1, will be taken
over by the war finance corporation,
which will make all .purchases of bonds
for which funds are available until the
expiration date.
Hereafter such purchases as the
treasury may make for the bond pur
chase fund, will be "occasional and
not habitual," Mr. Houston said.
WASHINGTON, April 17. After a
conferenoo here today with leaders or
the Delaware legislature, Representa
tive Fess, of Ohio, chairman of the
Republican congressional committee,
announced that ratification of the suf
frage amendment by Delaware had
been blocked only by a parliamentary
obstacle, which would be removed next
week, thus paving the way for imme
diate ratification.
Mr. Fess said he was told by the j
leaders of the Delaware assembly that
there were sufficient favorable votes
in each to insure ratification. The
leaders came to Washington to confer
with senate and house leaders, as to
the best means of getting out of the
parliamentary tangle which developed
at Dover.
