bad been sent to all the European
governments asking them to suspend
the formulation of a policy toward
Mexico until the United States ha6
defined its attitude While England,
France and Germany, he said had

pected that the other governments j
will follow the three grpat powers in I
awaking the decision of the United
States as to the next step In bringing j
peaee In Mexico.
it President Wilson had an early con- .
ference with Secretary Bryan today

is expected that the United States j

There was no comment forthcom

fers as to jurt what was in'enJcd bv
ihe United States, but it was gen
eral! agreed in official clrclps that
some positive action looking toward
n solution of the problem would be
in line with Ihe expectations of the
powers. Steps te, bring about a new
election would involve negotiations
with the ccnstiiutionalislp and there
is a confidence among administration
officials (hat if guarantees for a frea
campaign can be arranged through
the establishment of a provisional
authority at Mexico City acceptable
j to the constitutionalists, the latter
are likely to fall into line.
Sccretarv Bryan said that the state
department had not yet decided what

Felix Piia n refugee aboard the
battleship Louisiana.
Four Battleships Sail

battleships from Hampton Roads t'

miliarlty with tbe situation. It is ex

the state department of the recent

no Americans were injured.

Mexico City, Oct 29. "Each hour
brings newB of fresh triumphs for
'he Hucrta-Blanquet ticket In the
Mexican states." &ays El Dlaro. the
Bovernment organ, in an editorial
today. "These votes have a double
significance sanction of the. attitude
of our president and disapproval, we
might almost say scourging, of tbe
wicked, unfounded and Insolent med
dling of a foreign power In our do
mestic affairs
"The attitude of the president of
f '
the United States in upholding the
electoral tickets of those who favor
the rebels In the north of Mexico,
and opposing those of the supporters
of legality, order and national dlg
I nlty, has assured the continuation of
I Provisional President Huerta In pow
er. Moreover, It has gathered about
Huerta all those who are honorable
and worthy in tbe country and con-
secrated him in the present difficult
I circumstances as the only possible
president of the Mexican republic."
Diaz Pasted to U. S. Consul.
El Independlente says'
"The rebel of Vera Cruz and the
hero of Ciudadela (Felix Diaz), de
clares himself vanquished. Under
the wing of John Llnd and pasted
J like, scum to consul William Canada
he has shown himself In moments of
imaginary danger a military man full
of terror and entirely devoid of
honor "
El Partial says
"The nephew of the great Don Por
ifiro Diaz showed himself as coward
ly as a rabbit."

That the Canadian government is
actively endeavoring to interest stock
men in the western part of the United
States in the grazing possibilities of
Its forest lands Is evidenced by recent
correspondence between District For
tster B A Sherman of Ogden and
Chief Forester H. It .McMillan of
the province of British Columbia.
Mr. McMillan stated In his letter
that he is eager to Inform the stock
men that grazing permits at a nom:
unl cost may be secured on the for
oets in British Columbia and is en
deavoring to advertise this fact as
widely as possible He expressed the
opinion, however, chat there is but
slight possibility of persuading sheep
men in Utah to leave the excellent
ranges in their own state in order tn
secure grazing privileges on the Caua
dlan forests This opinion Is also
shared by tbe local officers of the for
esi service who believe that no bet
ter summer ranges can be found than
those tn Utah and adjoining states.
In their Judgment, I ia hardly likely
lh:it the inducements offered by the'
Canadian officials will proe attrac
tive to the flockmasters who are per
manently located In this region.
On the recommendation of CItJ At

when Washington avenue was prac

basements were flooded. The stock
of goods claimed to have been de

In Ills w ritten opinion ihe city at j

in the gutter by the contractors on the

However, according to Hennessv.
Stilwell demanded qIs pardon firsl
j and no terms could be agreed on.
i The fact that Hennessy even outlin
ed what took place between them
was credited today as having brought
about Warden Clancy's resignation.
John B. Riley, state superintendent I
of prisons, was quoted as follows-
"Mr Clancy told me Monday that j
the statements made by Stilwell to
Hennessj were made with the dis-
tlnd understanding and agreement
that they should no: be used under
any circumstances until Stilwell was
pardoned It was agreed thjgl Mr

sured him thai Sulzer would be re

would be pardoned
.Mr Sulzer recehed this informa

says .
"One day the latter part of la::

said that he had tallied with big

of he spoke.
"A day or two later I i old Go ernor

'Stilwell Is guilty and deserves little
