Carranza's Policy
MEXICO CITY. Aug. '.Mexico will
bold open the door to nationals of all
countries who can show that they
possess wholesome ideas of citizenship
and will not prove a disturbing ele
ment in the nation. Presidenl Venus
llano Carranza lold a correspondent
of the Associated Pros-, today in an
interview during which the executive
commented at length on various phases
of Mexico's problems
The Mexican president's statement
Jof the government's altitude toward
immigration was in response to an in
iquiry concerning declarations In the
I press of Mexico City that large num
bers or colonists were leaving their
European or Asiatic homes because of
disrupted conditions due to the world
President Carranza g;;ve assurances
that Mexico would place no barriers
I against proper immigration and. in fact
would extend all possib'e aid to such
prospective colonists That such ma
Lerial aid is in contemplation is evi
dent ed by the fact that the president
recentlj appointed a commission to in
vestlgate all phases of the coloniza
tion problem Senor Euis Luderty Rul.l
president of the commission, has an
nounced that communications have
been received from England. France.
Canada, Germany and Russia in re
sard to the feasibility of Colonies in
the republic and in each instance the
answer has been that Mexico welcomes
all dependable colonist
With Latin America
Senor Carranza was asked whether
the Mexican government had an pol
icy concerning Latin America which
might be construed as indicating that
the solidarity of such countries was I
more to be desired by Mexico with
Italy than with any other foreign na-1
tion. He replied that today the Mex
ican government was considering no
project of union and until such a prop
osition presents itself he refused to
define a possible governmental policy.
Touching on the petroleum question,
President Carranza asserted that the
initiative he presented to congress last i
November which was in effect an j
amendment to Article 27 of the con I
stitution, probably wi'l be considered
by that body soon He was emphatic
in the declaration that the public press
of the United States is being grossly
influenced by the petroleum interests
who could istort the facts. The pres
ident continued.
Oil Companies
"The petroleum companies have set
out to engender ill-feeling between
Mexico and the United States. They
are doing this through the medium of
some sections of the American press
which are distorting facts to suit their
own ends.
"Mexico is not opposed to the pe
troleum companies or lo any other
foreign investors. We merely require
that if such companies are to operate
in the republic they abide by out laws.

say but I have expressed my beliefs
'and ideas in my initiative of last No

President Carranza refused to ven

ing factor in the set lenient of the
present difficulties he also declared
problematical. The special commis- i
slon appointed by the Mexican senate'
to investigate conditions in the Tam-
i pico region has completed its work, he
said, and will give its information to

is for informative purposes only.
In conclusion President Carranza
gave renewed assurances of his per
sonal wishes and those of the govern -I
ment that cordial relations between
Mexico and the 1'nited S.ates be maintained.

' In general," the review said, "there
is a disposition lo accept present
price levels and to expect a continua

time to come."
in manj districts high prices havol
not served lo check demand, but thej
possibility of obtaining goods was
found to be of greater moment to the
buyer lhan the price fixed. On tho
other hand, the board said, "the very
great" price increases which have tak

buyers more cautious, care being tak

Growth and H. C. L.
Continued high prices, along with
constant growth in trade, both whole

in some of the basic industries, sus

a few districts, labor troubles, al
though a majority of the districts re

"Instead of a fear of unemployment
which had been expressed during tho
early part of the year," the board
said, "the reports received manifest
the fear of an impending shortage of
labor." Tho exodus of alien workers
was blamed in part.
The outlook on the whole was re

CHICAGO, Aug. 1. Surface and ele
vated street car men began voting at 8
o'clock this morning on a proposition
to rescind the strike vote taken at a
mass meeting of 6000 of their 15,000
union membership and acceptance of a
compromise wage scale agreed upon by
union and company heads last Mon

scale was rejected and a strike vote

high level, an investment demand for

LONDON. Aug. 1 The police strike
in London and the English provinces
called suddenly yesterday in protest
against pending legislation affecting
police organization, went into effect
today. While labor circles claimed
that 65 000 policemen and prison of
ficials had left their duties, it was as
serted by Edward Shortt, the home
j secretary In the house of commons,
I that the strike was a failure both in
London and in the provinces.
The secretary conceded that about
300 policemen out of 1700 in Liverpool
I had struck.
"Policemen who are unable to give
proper explanations of their absence
from duty," the secretary continued,
i "will cease immediately to be police
