On the Thaw side, the arrival of Roger O'Mara was just ss indefinite. Today Thaw himself raid he had not summoned the Pittsburg detective. Subsequently he amended this. "I ex pect to see Roger." he admitted. TRICE IS ESTABLISHED Having found it useless to argue with him. Thaw's lawyers brought about a truce in the breach for a time by agreeing to let Thaw manage the "publicity end of his case." To Thaw this end has become pre dominant. He has been told that he is likely to be deported to Vermont after the Immigration authorities take im into custody, and tonight he made a request for a list of the leading newspapers of that state. "I may have some very important statements to give them," he sa-d. Two conferences, i*i one of w icli the Thaw lawyer*. The chief counsel, McKcown.

Thaw spent a good part of the day looking out over the serene valley that stretches a'vay to the east from the ancient jail. The p>ne table sup plied him for l is increasingly volumi nous correspondence was buried under a disordered mass of letters and tele grams. The confusion of papers was in marked contrast to the spotless cleanliness of the cell. Thaw laughed at the recurring rumors that attempts would be made to kidnap him.

LATIN REPUBLICS BACKING WILSON AGAINST HUERTA I Central and South American Countries Join Foreign Nations in Move to Side track Provisional Presi ident and Establish Peace in War Torn Mexico FRANCE UNLIKELY TO . GREET DE LA BARRA Advices From Paris Say En voy's Status Is Similar to That of Felix Diaz With Japan—Congress to Get Message Tomorrow Un less Plan Is Agreed to vVASHLnGTO.V. Aug. 24. —Besides G:e<tt Britain, France and Japan, virtu ally all the Central and South American countries are lending their support to the efforts of the United States to bring about a peaceful settlement of the Mex ican revolution. Unless satisfactory overtures are made by the Huerta government before Tuesday President Wilson will pro claim in person in a message to both houses of congress the principle that constitutional government alone can be recognized in Mexico. He also will out line 'the suggestions of the United States for the elimination of Huerta and the establishment of a legally con stituted administration in the southern republic. That the United States is backed by a world wide sentiment in its peace policy is conceded in diplomatic cir cles here. Tangible evidence of the at titude of France came today in the news dispatches from Paris stating it was nearly certain President Poincare and Foreign Minister Pichon would not recgive Francisco de la Barra, appoint ed minister to France by Provisional President Huerta and now on his way to his post. t • «lATI«< BIMIUVR TO T>l\E» ii-it iitaH r t "-as pointed out in the advices from Pari?, was similar to that of General Felix Diaz, special ambas sador to Japan from the Huerta ad ministration, who. it was announced in vould not be welcomed. Great Britain's statement recently that the recognition of Huerta had been provisional nending an ©lection, taken together with expressions from France aid Japan, all of whom have formally recognized Huerta, are the only public r-iiiii^fstations of sympathy with the volley of the United States in oppos ing Huerta, but in the quiet realm of diplomacy & greater pressure is being brought to bear upon the Huerta re gime to yUftt to the American sug gestion? for owtce, Assurance* that Latin America stands by President Wilson have been infor mally recti rod here. Th4s had been expected, as the interests of Centra! and South American countries, where volatility • j Jfcrernment has prevailed through military dictatorship, are ad mit.cdlv ;ri Hue wtth the attitude taken by the United Slates in the present situation. ~\A *T\>OS B> POIJCV While Mr. Wilson has completed bi!» message, which WO! embrace not only a summary of the proposals made by John Lind and the reply of the Huerta government, "out also a statement of the policy to he followed by the United States, administration officials were, reticent to discuss the courae that would be pursued. % They pointed sig nificantly, however. to the Latin- American statement issued by Presi dent Wilson during the first fortnight of his administration and deciarad it v v ould be the basis of what Vie would have to say Tue.-da; . Secretary Bryan had a brief confer ence with President Wilson toda I ', dis cussing the Mexican situation. Mi- Bryan announced that the situation re mained unchanged. It is expected i\ many <:jartera here that the Huerta government may withdraw its rejection of the American proposals and submit a new basis of negotiations. This act? on admittedly would defer the reading of the president a message. The execution near i&exico City or Deputy geraphio Uendoi; cv charge* of plotting to i-: President Huerta is regarded by constitutionalist representatives here a* an act of in timidation deliberately planned by Huerta to influence oci.e- members of the Mexican congress, which convenes ne::t month and ■vhioh is likely to have before it imponant questions of policy. Rcndon is reported to have been one of Mexico's most popular deputies, a Madero adherent and well liked by- Americans in Mexico. Guns for Chihauhua XL PASO.
