Operator Said To Have Made Fortune Accused in Peace Note "Leak" After receiving full reports from • the Mexican-American commission, ! President Wilson now holds a key j to the situation, and it lies with him what the future policy of the United States government toward Mexico shall be. Unofficial information says that the joint commission consider it ussless to try to reach an understand ing through further efforts of the commission. The President discussed the situation with his three com missioners for about an hour yester day afternoon, but would not give out anything for publication saying that he did not wish to discuss the question in any of its phases. It is said that at least one more confer ence will be held with the Mexican commissioners, probably some time next week, when the Mexicans are expected to receive the reply of General Carranza to the proposals of the commission. Tonight the opinion is that some radical changes in the Mexican situa tion will transpire soon, one of which is the recall of Gen. Pershing and his troops, and the war depart ATCHAFAUÏA LEVEE IN 6000 SHAPE Thomas aid Rtentan Fait to Arrive ad Heeling Win Gevener is Belayed Baton Rouge, La.,'Jan. 3.—Owing to the inability of L.

S. P. FOLDER GIVES MORGAN CITY BOOST Morgan City, a fine thriving city of 5,000, is one of the important oyster and fish shipping point on the Southern Pacific. In the lakes about the town may be found excellent fishing, and during the fall and win ter months the local water courses offer good opportunity for wild fowl shooting. Following the wide and deep Atchafalaya River southward brings the traveler to the Gulf Coast, only some twenty miles distant. Here are numerous shallow salt and brackish lakes, inlets and streams. The area is comparatively treeless, only the wild grass covering the low marsh shore lines and forming the boundaries of the lakes and coast. Ridges are of frequent occurrence in the marshes, and here may always be found the inhabitant and his domestic domi cile. For thirty miles east and west of the Atchafalaya, may be found fine hunting and fishing—the game in cluding all species of water fowl, and the fishing represented by all varieties peculiar to the Gulf, in cluding crab and the great prawn or deep water shrimp. Morgan City should be made the headquarters or outfitting point for the hunter, for there are excellent hotels, fine stores, and many motor crafts, which may be secured for the journey, with but a comparatively small expense.—From "Hunting and Fishing in Louisiana and Texas along the lines of the Southern Paci fic. MURDER CASE HINGES ON HEARTIEST MEAL Ossipee, N. H., Jan. 2.—Expert testimony that Mrs. Florence Small had eaten meat and vegetables an hour before her death was supple mented today by the statement of witnesses that Frederick L. Small, on trial for her murder, and his wife generally had their heartiest meal at noon. Testimony, given by Mrs. Lilly M.' Ferrin and Edwin C. Conner is regarded by the prosecution as signi ficant because of its bearing on the time of the woman's death. Small left his home for Boaton about 3 p. m. September 28, the hay of the murder. He has stated since that they bad light lunch of canned shrimp just before he left. Counsel for the defense, it is un derstood, will contend that the find ing of the other food in Mrs. Small's stomach indicates that she was alive after her husband departed, and had an opportunity to eat another meal before her death, which, in those circumstances, must have occurred after Small had boarded the train. Both Mrs. Ferrin and Conner tes tified that Mr. and Mrs. Small had told them at various times that they eut their principal maul at noon. His? Jfîistam?
