Washington. June 10. Hope that
the wavering mediation programme
still might bring peace to Mexico, was
expressed here late tonight by Argen
tine Minister Naon as he took the
train tor Niagara Falls after confer
ences with President Wilson and Sec
retarv Bryan and Luis Cabrera of the
Washington agencj of the constitution
Neither Mr Naon nor am of those
with whom he bad conferred would
sa whether any new plan had been
devised to break the Seemingly final
deadlock a I Niagara Falls between the
American and Mexican delegates
Position Unchengcd.
In official quarters, however, it was
made known that there had been no
change In the position of the I'nited
States government, as set forth in the
declaration yesterda by the American
delegates that only a constitutionalist
could be accepted to head the proposed
provisional government in Mexico City
After the conference with the presi
dent and Secretary Bryan, Minister
Naon stated that there still was en
couragemcnt for mediation and Secre
tary Bryan reiterated his declaration
that mediation v. as progressing satis
factorily. No official word came from
the president.
Whpn Mr Naon left his first confer
ence with Secretary Bryan he was
asked if there was still hope for medi
ation "I always look toward the light.' he
said "I never look toward the dark "
"What If the light Is put out?" was
"I never could grope in the dark,"
was Mr. Naon'e reply
Neither Secretary Bryan nor Mr.
Naon would admit there had been a
consultation with a representative of
the constitutionalists. When a repre
sentative of the Associated Press who
had seen Mr Cabrera enter the Ar
gentlne legation asked the latter about
his visit. Mr Cabrera expressed
"But you do not deny that you were
there?" was asked
"Certainly I deny it."
But ou were seen."
"But can I not still insist that I
wag not there?" Mr Cabrera replied.
Seeks Conference.
After the departure of Mr. Naon,
Secretary Bryan sought a conference
with one of the legal representatives
of Caranza in Washington. But as it
was late the secretary of state failed
to find the lawyer In his office. It
was learned latr that one of the ob
jects of Mr. Naon's visit was to induce
the constitutionalist leaders to waive
temporarily their objection to the con
sideration of the internal affairs In
Mexico by the mediation conference.
He is said to have suggested that If
the constltutlonn llsi s would agree to
a provisional government to succeed
Huerta that the mediatorv powers and
the linted States would aid in set

Mr Scott said yesterday:
.Mrs Stephen came to my office
some time ago and talked to me
about the Hillstrom case. I did not

time, 1 might add. we did not know
that Hillstrom would be called for

"Mrs. Stephen also asked me if I
would like to have assistance in the

But what about the fly which crawls all over
your meat before you buy it?
If you knew it, you would not eat that either,
but you don't know.
You are safe only when you purchase U. S.
Inspected Meats.
The Fly has no access to them It cannot carry the filth,
dirt, disease and bacteria from the mire and corruption
of it's haunts into our U. S. Inspected Meats; because
they are thoroughly protected by being completely
wrapped in knitted white cotton bags, protecting them
against flies and dirt from the time they leave our plant
until delivered at the markets.
This feature of our method of delivery is in line with M
the cleanliness and sanitation existing throughout our I
entire establishment. By noting the contrast between
! our neat, clean and sanitary manner of handling our
meats and the way the uninspected kind of meats are ex
posed to the flies and dirt of the streets, you will have
somewhat of an idea of the differences in sanitary con
ditions between Government Inspected Plants and unin
spected Slaughter Houses.
You are vitally interested in this propanganda; it is be

learn whether your market is handling meats that are
properly protected, by stepping down town some morn
