Tho nie-diation delegates are stand ing tirmly against the suggestion from the Americans tlv.it tjtn. Carranza bo allowed to dominate the provisional organization. They wU oppose this as long as possible, but it is understood that they are being gradually per suaded to yield on tl:is point rather than endanger a peaceful settlement. .Sonor L-milio Kabaa, head of tho Mexican delegates taking part in the mediation conference? will not allow his name to le sugje?ted for the pro visional presidency, in spite of the or ganized demand presented from Mex ico City that he be c.iosvn at the tem porary non-partisan head of the gov ernment.

ROYALTY OF BRITAIN Queen Mary's Attempt to Buy Immunity From Annoyance Is Spurned, However. LONDON. June 10. The latest of the police raids on- suffrage head quarters has resulted in tho astound ing discovery that several members cf the royal family, including even the prince of Wales, have been regu lar contributors to the militant funds. There is evidence to show that an offer was made in behalf of Queen Mary, but the offer was re fused. The contributions it mast be stated at once, do not by any means Indicate that royalty favors the mili tants; on the contrary the situation amounts to tho payment of black mail for immunity from militant at tacks. When the raids were made and bits of evidence were found the govern- ment announced that it would begin a series of prosecutions . on a charge of supporting a criminal organization but the examination of the lists has dliclosed tho facts that among the subscribers are members of the royal family. Further investigation showed that fll these were immunity payments while as for the Prince of Wales, he has so frequently argued with his father and mother in favor of wo- m.an suffrage that it is uncertain in what category to ut hLs contribu tions. It is learned that the sub scription from the queen was $5,000 conditioned upon the militant organ ization agreeing to end all annoyance to their majesties, but tho subscrip tion was refused. When the royal names were found In the list the government had to give up the idea of prosecuting the subscribers and Is now considering prosecuting the militants on charges of blackmail, but the royal and noble subscribers will, naturally, be unwill ing to be complaining witnesses and without them there is nothing to show that menaces have been prof fered. END SOW LIFE Edifice at Colfax and Lafay ette To Be Sold at Auction Organization Will Quit. The First Reformed church, which for more than 50 years has been a factor in church life of South Bend, and which was supported by Schuyler Colfax, once vice president of the United States, will cease to exist after next Sunday. Two weeks ago It was decided by the trustees and deacons of the church to discontinue serices. Services will close as a result of the fact that tho congregation is located at too great a distance from the church building which is located too near the business district of the city. Plans to build a smaller church in the residence district have been aban doned and the members of the con- ; gregation will u.ilte with other city churches.

An effort will be put J forth to bring out every baseball en thusiast, young or old. masculine or feminine, on Boosters day, and give the Benders a deserving acknowledge ment of the work they have done in the circuit this sea-son. Tickets will be placed on sale at many points throughout the city, while ; me committee lntenus to start a per isonal canvass campaign. The receipts of the day will go toward building up and strengthening the South Bend ciub which is hitting a fast gait at the present time, with tho view of making it a lirst division club. Tickets will be sold for $1 each. To Get New l'layer. Boosters' day throughout the league is but one of the features of the sea son, first instigated by the fans them selves. One of the principal purposes of the event in South Bend will be to secure funds with which to purchase a couple of new players which are needed by the club. .Manager Smith has had his hands full this spring or ganizing the club and has encountered serious difficulties, losing one valuable player when ,4Ioc" Schmidt jumped his contract two days after Smith had paid for him. In addition to several other discouraging features. This has not hindered the spectacu lar playing of the club as a whole and the Benders are rated as one of the last e.st organizations in the league by other magnates although they have to show up In the standings as well as; some of the other clubs. The regular fans are well satisfied with the per formance of the Benders as their lighting spirit and spectacular playing has made them favorites. Arndt Denies Stories. Harry Arndt, part owner of the club is in town today having left the club at Adrian Tuesday night, and is dany Ing that he has resigned or sold or in tends to sell his share In the team. He will not be in the game, for some time, however, as it is necessary that the club cut down to the salary limit, Smith also wishes to get a couple of new men whom he has in sight and their purchase depends much upon tho success of Boosters' day. One of these men is well known to South Bend fans and is one of the best players in the business. His addition to tho club would mean almost double strength. Arndt denied strongly that he was out of the game for good, which has been reported, although Harry' has been going fast this spring. "I was born with a glove on my hand,' said Harry', "and will have one with me until I step on my whiskers. p on m wiiisKtis. Duckv Holmes and his Saginaw! Ducks will be the opponents of tho Benders on Boosters' day which in sures some exciting battle for Ducky has it in for the local club and Smith would be more than pleased to put ono over on the Holmes bunch. Other plans for Boosters' day will bo announced by the committee which will be appointed today, within the next few day t.nd rt Is anticipated that a number of interesting features will be added to the afternoon's program.

NEW YORK, June 1C Seven per sons were burned to death and sev eral others injured in a fire that swept through the live-story tenement building at 90 FSvsex st., early today. The lives of 200 other occupants were probably saved by Miss Cecelia Sha piro, who discovered the blaze and ran screaming through the halls to give the warning. Most of the injured were hurt by jumping from windows or firo es capes. Within five minutes after the bhize was discovered on the first floor the flames were shooting through the entire structure. Finding their escape cut off, many of the building's occu pants fled to the roof and were res cued there by firemen ind policemen. Among the injured is Acting De partment Chief Devanny. The stairs by which ho was attempting to reach the second floor to help in the work of rescue collapsed and he was plunged down. Prompt action by his firemen faved him from death. A. F.

The civil cere mony uniting in marriage Miss Belle Wyatt Willard, daughter of the Amer ican ambassador to Spain, and Ker mit Roosevelt, son of ex -Pres. Theo dore Roosevelt, was performed today at the refecture of police of the Buenavista district. The religious ceremony will tai:e place tomorrow. The olficial witnesses of the cere mony were the Duke of Alba and Senor Osma Y. Scull, a former cabinet minister. Although the function was small in comparison with the religious cere mony which takes place tomorrow in the American embassy, all the formal ities of Spanish law were strictly ob served. Ambassador Willard had specially ' reque requested that there be no exceptions made on account of the high positions of the contracting parties, and every requirement of the law governing foreign marriages was fulfilled. The minister of state had suggested that the justice go to the American embassy. But the embassy is techni cally United States territory and so outside the jurisdiction of the magis trate. The magistrate took his duties to day as a high honor and had fitted up a room in his residence with some elaborateness for the occasion. The house is in the most aristocratic part of the city. Large throngs watched tho participants on their way to and from the justice's "house. The wedding certificate was signed by the Spanish premier, Fduard Dato: the minister of state, the Marquis of Lema; Myron T Herrick. American ambassador to France, and Col. Theo dore Roosevelt, th Lather of the bridegroom. The Spanish populace takes the live liest interest in Col. Roosevelt. Wher ever he went today crowds followed and tried to get a glimpse of him. There were cheers at several points, and the Amrican ex-president re sponded by taking off his hat, smiling and bowing genially. President Would Give Trade Commission Broader Con trol of Industries. WASHINGTON, June 10. Presi dent Wilson today placed himself in favor of a radical change in his anti trust program. The trade commis sion bill which passed the house, commonly known as the Covington bill, probably will be .amended in the sen ate to meet the position the presi dent assumed today. The Covington bill gives the interstate trade corn mission merely inquisitorial powers, while the measure fathered by R-p. Stevens of New Hampsnire and now favored by the president givs it as strong and broad control of the in dustries of the nation as tho inter state commerce commission has v the railroads. The president's attitude was st.it. -d to Louis D. Brandeis f t.osior., ..-n-ator Hollis and Rep. .Stevens of New Hampshire. As the Covington measure will be amended in the senate in aconlarue with the president's d-s;rs, it will provide that the inters; tt- trade c om mission have power to initiate court proceedings against offending corpo rations. Instead of waiting upon the department of justice. I nfair rom petition will also be merely eb arly defined and means of fiuhtir.g it in tho courts will be made easier.

ANTI'S WAGE BITTER FIGHT AGAINST PLAN Ballot Clubs Get Equal Repre sentation and Opportunity to Bring Propaganda to the Fere During Present Session rm'.r.O. June l Suffrage scor ed its i Irs: virtory in the 12th annual convention of the woirt n's clubs hero ti day when the council decided at a meeting in the Auditorium theater to permit open discussions from the Jloor of the main convention. Suffracet leaders declared that with this leeway they will make the biennial go on rec ord as favoring the suffrage question by next week. Anti-si.ffraiiists among the delegates bitterly opposed the motion, claiming it was not feasible to have discussion from the Moor. speakers for the op posing factions, however, took the floor and after a lengthy debate suitragetd carried their point. As a result of this policy adopted by the council, equal rights supporteu will be enabled to wevigo "the cause to the front at every turn. Suil'ragists also declared that the ruling was a big victory for them ;us it showed lh sentiment among the delegates on tho subject. Sharp Debate KxpiTtcd. When the council met sharp d'-bato of the question was anticipated by tho delegates and a prolonged hunt to cur tail the powers and authority of tho resolutions committee was expected. Suffrage leaders planned to bring up the suffrage question when the ques tion of tile duties of tile resolutions committee should be discussed. Tho action Monday deciding that suffrage clubs should be admitted to represen tation in the convention on the same b.isis ius women's clubs atiiliated with the general federation luis smoothed out the path for the appointment of delegates favoring suffrage to the com mittee on resolutions and was in it self a tacit endorsement of suffrage. Heretofore suffrage clubs had a small er repn-sentation and could not intlu enco sentiment on the all-powerful committee on resolutions to p;lss tho suffrage question to the convention for a vote. Suffragists today declared that every possible effort would be made to get the federation to vote for suit rage and expressed the belief that they would at least secure the long sought for rec ognition. The delegates to the feder ation came here uninstructed and ac cording to an unwritten law of thd federation they will use their own dis cretion in voting. Hero Are Some of tin? QiioUons. A number of other questions were also considered at the council, amonff them being: Should tho mid-season biennial council be as large a.s possible or should it be confined to members only?
