LITTLE MEDIATION IS DONE Conference at Niagara Falls Is Wait ing Word From Constitutional Leader in the Hope He May Join In the Peace Movement. Washington, 1 >. June !l. ICvery indication in Washington today pointed to some form of constitution alist participation in the Niagara Kalis mediation conference tending toward the settlement of interna tional differences affecting the Huerta government as well as the in ternal troubles in Mexico. It was expected that the definite position of Carranza would be com municated to Niagara Kails before many hours. Some of the constitutionalists here in touch with their leader insist to ne lit that Carranza would not con sent to an armistice hut That he would agree to peace proposals as they relate to establishment of a pro visional government pending a gen eral election, provided representation is given in the provisional govern ment to t .c constitutionalists. Should Carranza refuse a cessation of hostilities, it seemed improbable here that lbs representatives would he received in the mediation couter c'lice. .1 ■.a ' nil* in' mi 'iiii'oiu ...... ....... ili'li gates were deliberating today on peace plans lormulaled by tlie Wash ington government, President (Wilson, y,.< retnry Bryan, and John I And, who i(.present the state department in negotiations with Carranza's repre sentatives here, conferred. I iter Secretary Bryan declared Ii|iat both the president and himself were liopelulo feolistltut ionalist par ticipation in ultimate plans for peai'e in Mexico. It*was learned that some features proposed by tin* administration liere differed from the peace plan origi nally submitted by the mediators and the plans of the Huerta commission ers as related to treatment of the constitutionalists. Administration leaders believe a compromise might lie reached which would lie accept able to Carranza. Should ii he necessary for the me diation conference to recess pending negotiations separately with Car ranza it is thought here much could tie accomplished toward composing the internal Mexican situation and that Hi parte participation in tlie sec ond stage of mediation could follow with Huerta, Carranza and the United States represented. At con stitutionalist headquarters here final word from Carranza was expected hourly, Tli« subject of ammunition from tlie United States for the constitu tionalists eon tin tied a matter of offi cial concern. Cabinet deliberations resulted in an order from Secretary of Commerce Kedfield to hold up a cur|id of ammunition on route to Gal veston aboard tlie Morgan liner kl Hud for trans-shipment to Tampico. Constitutionalist leaders were sur prised to learn of this action hut they were pleased to learn there had been no interference with the loading of the Hamburg-American ship Arcadia at Baltimore. rius snip look on *10."" ■ ">'*■•** ammunition consigned 10 Hamburg, but the Baltimore collector reported that lie regarded the clearance as a subterfuge. The Ward liner Antilla, from New York, with her cargo of ammunition for Carranza, is due at Tampico to morrow. Huerta having suspended the blockade of the port and his gun boats having returned toward Puerto Mexico, some officials expressed the opinion that her cargo would not be interfered with. The idea suggested yesterday that through moral suasion the Antilla’s commander miaht be induced to re turn to Now* York appeared to have been dissipated by the statement from the steamship line that nothing would prevent the discharge of the Antilla’s cargo except Instructions lr •" Washington. The Japanese minister to Mexico, whose continued absence from the capital had given rise to some appre hension. was reported today to he safe and well. It Is understood the prolonged absence- of the minister was caused by his remaining toi some time at the end of a break in the railway connecting Mexico City with Mazatlan, in a futile effort to find his way to the seaport to com municate directly with the com mander of the Japanese cruiser Id/umo respecting the safety of the Japanese in the west coast ports. Charles Thomas, an American about whom inquiries have been made, was reported safe at Atchocun. Want General Elections. Niagara Palls, Out., June 'The day was so taken up with peace plans that for the time being the Idea of constitutionalist representation was forgotten. The mediators believe the claims of the constitutionalists for participa tion in the provisional government can be token care of in whatever final agreement is readied here, and that it matters little whether repre sentatives of General Carranza ap pear at t'lto conference. The Ameri can delegates maintain tiiat certain concessions should lie made by tlie mediators to allow Carranza to have Ills agents here. In today’s discussion of the form ill provisional government the Ameri can delegates are understood to have told the mediators that inasmuch as Carranza had been moving forward toward undoubted military conquest 01 .Mexico City, It seemed essential that llie constitutionalists be given ample share in the new government. The mediators are not averse to this, but are unwilling to transfer "he Mexican government at one fell swoop to the constitutionalist party. The) think that in the general dec lions which would follow shortly after, the new provisional government was installed the Carranza faction very likely would emerge triuiupn antly.

June D,~Sena tor (illit- .lann • ol Kentucky, almost on tin- eve of a vote on the tolls ex emption repeal hill, tonight drew aside the veil and exposed some of the strong feeling among democratic senators divided over tiie contro versy. Senator James made a particular attack on tiie position of Senator O'Gorinan, leader of the anti-repeal forces, declaring the New York sena tor had been 'tile valiant defender of ilie tolls punk of the patforni, hut had faied to be champion of another plank just, as important when oppor tunity offered. Tiie senator spoke at the night ses sion. Setia.tor Janies began his attack by; leading a plunk in the Baltimore plat term declaring for publicity of recom mendations for appointive federal offices, explaining that tiie plank was inserted wilili tiie particular ob ject of having the recommendations for federal judgsklps made public. He then announced that Senator O’Gorman as a member of tiie judi ciary committee twice had an oppor tunity to show his advocacy of this plank and lirfd not done so. Senator O'Gorman explained that on one occasion lie'had not been pres ent when tiie question came up and that when another bill was before the committee there was no discus sion of the question. Senator James turned from Senator O'Gorman to Senator Vardaman, who recently si oke of tiie democratalc party fol low ing tiie leadership of “Bryan and li ot,“ in tiie tolls exemption fight.

At each session of the legislature since I lies, when horse race gambling wa abolished in Louisiana, I here lias leam talk of introducing a bitl to regulate and restore the sport. Not until this session was sucli a bill put forward, however. IVnir weeks ago the Reinhardt hill was introduced. At first it was not generally taken seriously because even many of those who favored it did not think it had a chance. Its friends began to grow in num bers, however, until the whole state was aroused. The brief campaign for and against it was marked by three mass meetings in New Orleans, two for and one against it. Women’s or ganizations took action and minis ters preached about it. Those against the bill made no at tempt to marshal their forces to win in two preliminary votes, but waited until today, when a motion was made to advance it to third reading and passage. Tills was amended to indefinitely postpone and tlie amendment carried. The Reinhardt bill provided Tor the pci mill cel system of betting and a state commission to govern races.

I SAYS WILSON SENATOR TILLMAN SCORES THE PRESIDENT FOR HIS STAND ON CANAL TOLLS ISSUE. SPLIT PARTY IN FACTIONS Speaks of Roosevelt, "The Great Ad vertiser," Who Has Come Home "Deelighted” to Find the Blunders That the Democrats are Making. Washington, June 9. The senate today marched steadily toward final action on the tolls exemption repeal bill, but leaders tonight were unwil ling to predict, tile day when a vote cun he taken. Kven with a night session tonight there was no certainty of a vote on the first proposition to he disposed of, the so-called Simmons-Norris amendment qualifying terms of the loll. Senator Horah, an anti-repeal leader, predicted that this amend ment alone would he deflated four or five hours. Action within the next day or two, however, hardly can bo avoided unless there are unexpected developments or an unlooked for fili Imster on the part of anti-repealers. Senator Tillman of South Carolina today made an unusual speech criti cism. the president in vigorous terms or lirin ing the tolls issue hefore the country at this time and endangering flic chances of the democratic party in congressional elections next fall. ■Senator Tillman announced he would vote for repeal only because * lie felt his state party convention had freed him from the tol's joker in the Haiti more patform, "It stn-gers iny common sense and I have been unalie to understand just why lie projected the fight on his party nt this time," he said. It is of great importance to the democratic party to control the house at the next election and I believe tlhn president should have kept quiet until that election was over.” This speech came at the close of a day devoted to debate on the tolls Mil. ' I nlu tins issue was pressed to tne front the course of democracy had been onward and upward,” Senator Tllman declared. “There are so many things of more importance that t he democrats ought to do that I must Bay in my opinion it was a great blunder on the part of him president. The democratic party Instead of pre seiiting a solid, united front, is split into contending factions.” The senator recalled that Roose Velt, “the great advertiser,” had come home, “deelighted.” Then ho devoted his attention to Senator bdorman, anti-repeal leader, sug gesting that in the next campaign the New York senator would have some difficulty in explaining why two planks so antagonistic as the tolls and ship subsidy planks were placed in the Baltimore platform.
