MEDIATORS FRAMING REPLY TO CARRANZA 'nsurgent Chief Lacking Information on Important Points Be ing Treated by Mediators Conference Plans From First to Give Constitutionalists Large Share in Provisional Government Rebels Believe ''Conquered I Should Not Dictate to Conquerors." Niagara Falls June 2. Still dead locked over constitutionalist repre sentation, the Mexican and American mediation delegates were waiting for more information today about the character and ability of certain per sons who had been suggested to com pose thp new provisional govern ment The Mexican delegates are report ing lo their government the develop ments with reference to constitution allst participation, but have as yet I no official knowledge on the subject from the mediators. The American delegates have not finished their discussion with the mediators about the constitutional! ists and are awaiting more advices from Washington. Indications today were thrt nothing definite would be resolve on constitutionalist repre-1 sentation thoueh the mediators were reported to be framing a reply to the last Carranza note. Thp statpment from Durango giving the constitutionalist view of the mediation conference was regarded j here as likely to deby rather than i hurrv thp necotiations While no comment was obtainable thosp of thr conference who did express them selves pointed to the statement as concrete evidence of the constitution-, allsts misundprstanding of the char- ! actpr of the negotiations. Thp statement, it was said, served to show a lack of information on i some of the Important points being treated here, especially as to just! what representation in thp nnw pro visional government the conference had intended for the Carranzistas. There is some reason to believe that the conference has planned from the first to give the constitutionalists ai largp sharp In the provisional govern mpnt. but definite information along this line has necessarily been with hpld until the viewpoints of Huertn and Washington could be obtained Washington. Junp 2- While admin ' istrntion leadprs still looked to Niag ara Falls today for the decision of thej mediators over the question of oon-j stitutionalist rpprpspntation at the Mexican conference, the semi-official statement from Carranza s headquar j ters at Durango, criticizing thp course of thp South Amprlcan mediators at-1 traded widespread attention Such j pxpressions in thp statement as that the constitutionalists "point out the) fact that conquerors are not usually wont to permit the conquered to dic tate terms of pence," which Is prac tically v. hat is to be asked of them by the commission ' were variously Interpreted Administration rhief! declined to comment on the state ment. Declarations from Niagara Falls stated thp Durango expression did not alter the mediators' opinion toward the constitutionalists Hope was not lacing that differ ences between the mediators and the constitutionalists could be dissipated hv exchanges which recently were in'Uated by delivery of thp f'arranza notp at Niagara Falls. In some quar ters belief was expressed that the diplomatic skies might start to clear when the mediators completed their reply to the mesaage. There wore; Indications that the envoys might! look to the Washington government or additional information over the specific attitude that Carranza final ly will take They still sought a word as to whether he would agree to a brlpf trace and whether he would au thorize his representatives to discuss the broad subject of the republic's pacification. Up to this time Carranza has turn ed a deaf ear to such proposition?. Bryan Calls American Envoys. Secretary Bryan was in frequent, COmunlcaUon with the members of the American mission at Niagara Falls but bevond his statement that the conference was "progressing sat isfactorily." no intimation of the trend of the exchanges was forthcom ing It was believed, however, that the American delegates had not ceas ed their efforts for admission of a constitutionalist representative to the conference. , In constitutionalist circles at ash ington speculation was renewed today as to the outcome of the mediation preliminaries If the three envoys and thp chief of the northern faction fail ed' to agree on a basis for constitu tionalist participation. Many obsery ers took the position hat even I, mediation were confined to differ ences between Huerta and thp United States and the northern faction con tinued their campaign to Mexico City there still would be need of outside help to restore normal conditions in III? republic The mediators and the American delegates were to resume their con Terences today. Decision on the ( ar ranza question is not expected for several days The Huerta delegates, It Is believed, will abide by the en voys' will in that matter While the diplomatic phase of the 4 B I Mexican equation was uppermost to- day, yet the refusal of the American j government to clear ships bearing war cargoes to any port was an in teresting development Previously it I had been believed that Carranza's j troops would be able to replenish their arms supplies through the port j of Tamplco which they recently cap ! tured However, arms for Mexican points, from the UnitPd States under present conditions must be sent to other ports and reconsigned there I When the cabinet assembled today with President Wilson no official ac count of General Carranza's state ment issued last night had been re ceived either through the constitu tionalists themselves or from the American delegates at Niagara Falls The cabinet members and White House officials, however, showed: deepest interest in Carranza s pro-j nouncempnt as published in the morn ing news dispatches and It was taken up for discussion. Rafael Zubaran. head of the Car ! ranza agency here, commented today upon Mexico City dispatches repre-' senting General Huerta as desiring that thp constitutionalists enter the mediation procepdlngs so that Mex ico's affairs might be settled by Mex ir -ins "TIip constitutional's have noth ing to mediate with Huerta," he said "and can only meet him at the point of the sword."
