Niagara. FallB. Ont., June 10. A
dangerous obstruction to progress on
a rlta point In the mediation proceed
ings has arisen, which again threatens
failure of the negotiations,
j The United States has said to the
mediators in unequivocal terms that
it cannot consent to any method of
transition from the existing regime to
' the proposed new provisional govern
I ment of Huerta's administration.
The mediators are insisting that
General Huerta be permitted to make
the appointment of the man agreed
upon here for provisional president
This, the American government abso
lutely refuses to accept, not only be
cause It is committed against recogni
tion of Huerta, but because It has been
Informed by the Constitutionalists that
under no circumstances will they ac
'ccpt a peace plan which permits Huer
ta to exercise the constitutional func
tion of naming his successor. On this
point the mediators and American del
egates are blocked. One side must
give way before any advance is made
Mediation May Founder.
Some of the principals have actually
lost hope for a settlement, but there
is a growing confidence that the medi
ators will devise some method of
bridging the difficulty rather than al
low mediation to founder on the rocks
Involved in the question of method
In choosing the new provisional presi
dent is an underlying principle which
if not settled now, will certainly pro
voke other disagreements before any
protocol can be signed. The American
government is firm in Its belief that
the Constitutionalists, having conquer
ed the greater part of Mexico, should
be given the controlling share in the
new government, that the Constitu
tionalists are moving forward to un
doubted conquest in Mexico City and
that, to prevent such a contingency
concessions should be made which will
make their acceptance of the peace
plan immediately possible.
Constitutionalists Real Party.
The 1'nlted States beliees the Con
stitutionalists with their large army
form thp real party which must be
pacified and that the transfer of power
must be to them in order to insure
Amnestv for the Huerta followers

rights has been undertaken by the
American government also, the nit

Amos Pinchot Makes Public
Confidential Letter Sent to
Theodore Roosevelt.
Pro-trust Propoganda Places
Progressive Party in False
and Fatal Position.
New York. June 10 Amos Pinchot
made public today the text of the con
fidentlal letter he recently addressed
to Theodore Roosevelt, the members
of the Progressive national commit
tee and other leaders, denouncing
George W Perkins, chairman of the
national executive committee, as a
menace to the party, principally be
cause of his affiliation with theUnit
ed States Steel corporation and the
International Harvester company,
"two great monopolies which ha e
succeeded most completely In exploit
ing the public and crushing organized
labor. "
The letter opens bv declaring that
a "situation exists in the Progressive
party which must bo terminated be
fore it can command general popular
"The situation I refer to. Mr. Pin
( hot continues in his letter, "is this.
First, an element in our party leader

and has frequently gone on record
j to this effect."
Progressives Oppose Perkins.
Mr Pinchot then goes on to say
the Progressive party has placed it
self poeitlvelj and definitely on re
cord In opposition to Mr Perkins, anJ
adds 'hat "through the Progressive
party's official bulletin, through pulp

pamphlets, printed as Progressive par

Constitutionalists C u 1 1 i n g
Down Large Estates Under
New and Satisfactory Plan.
Small Farm System Proving a
Success Poor Men Get
Land for Small Sum.
Juarez, Mev , June 10 The agrarian
problem In northern Mexico, which
has been discussed by the Nicaraga
! Falls mediation congress, already is
working Itself out satisfactorily un
I der constitutionalists direction, ac
I cording to Information given out to
day by officials here. They a?sert that
the plan of cutting up the enormous
j estates of the ranch owners does not
mean confiscation, and that in manv
cases the large land owners will be
glad to havo their estates divided
and sold under government supervls
The constitutionalist-; point out that
heretotore the large land owners, be
Ing in control of the state govern
ments, have paid oniy such taxes as
they saw fit They say when the land
Is assessed at its proper value many
of the large estates would not pay
enough under use as cattle rang
to pay the taxes If this land were
cut into small farms, however. it
could be made to pay splendid re
turns. While the payment of these
farms would be slow, it would be gu
aranteed to that government.
Many Land Owners Satisfied.
It is said here that a dozen land
owners of Zacatecas, realizing these
conditions, already have asked that
portions of their estates be cut up
and sold by the government at a fair
price to small farmers It Is pointed
out here that the taking over estates
of absentees and those who have been
active politically against the consti
tutionalists does not mean conflsca
tlon. It is planned to take these es
tates and hold them lor a few years
as a punishment, operating them for
the benefit of the state as a war tax
In taking these estates and in cutting
up the large holdings into small farms
the holders of mortgages on the prop
erty, especially foreigners, will be.
protected The pro rata amount from
each plot will be turned over to the
mortgagees each year until the mort
gages are paid off
The operation of the small farm
system as shown in Tamaulipas is
instanced as an example of the In
crease in prosperity possible under the'
constitutionalists plan (leneral Lucio
Blanco cut one of Felix Diaz's estates
iDto small farms for his soldiers
These farms. It is said, have paid
over a hundred per cent more than
under former conditions The dis
tribution of municipal lands already
has been begun here Two-acre plots
of ground on the outskirts of Duran
go have been sold to poor men on pay
ments of $1.60 a month for 100 months.
These lands are now being cultivated.

Usurious Interest Displaced by

Duties Should be Slogan.
I Orono, Me June 10. Vice Presi -I
dent Marshall delivered the principal
j address here today at the University
of- Maine commencement exercises,
i He said in part:
"Slight knowledge will not enable
the young man to assume the man
! agement of life's affairs In the ir
I represslble conflict between labor
and capital, he cannot assume that
either property or labor is everything
without tending to establish a peon
class in American or an obllgarchy of
wealth. Complete knowledge may
convince him that it will better for
the republic to be controlled by nel
ther of these classes.
"In 1850, we had a republic where
labor was satisfied, where respect
for religion and reverence for law
I and order and a sincere attachment
to the constitution were strong In
that year the proportion of the an
nual wealth created in the country
bv the joint efforts of labor and cap
ital was one-fourth to labor and three
fourths to capital. Sixty years later
the proportion bad changed to less
than one-fifth to labor and more than
four-fifths to capital This dispro
portion, to my mind, has much to do
with our present discontent.
Usurious Profit.
"Usurious interest is no more but
! usurious profit has taken Its place

scribe to the doctrine hut I realize
that subjects which formerly were
purely of state cognizance have be

eggs can be marketed success
fully by parcel post is the conclusion I
reached by the department of agricul

experiments. It was demonstrated to
the satisfaction of the department
that this method of shipment fre
quently secured a better price for
the producer and a fresher article
for the consumer. The experiment
it is stated further showed that the
parcel post was of particular value
to the man whose flock was too small
or who lives too far from express ser- I
vice to permit him to ship his eggs
in regular commercial cases
In rhe course of rh experiments
which extended over a period of five
months the department shipped 9,131
eggs in 46C lots by mail from various
points under varying conditions and
in different types of containers Of
