ANGELES IS DENIED TALK WITH WILSON His Emissaries Are Told State Department Is Handling Mex ican Situation. Cornish,N. H. An unsuccessful effort wasjmade today to arrange an interviewjhere between Pres ident Wilson and General Felipe Angeles, the Mexican leader who recently came to the United States to suggest a way of meet-1 ing Mr. Wilson’s warning that the situation must change. Colonel Jesus M. Aguilar and i Major Yrenco A. Carcia arrived: in the afternoon with letters from General Madero and General An geles, but were told that the Mexican situation was being han- j died by the State Department at i Washington. | Chiefs in Peace Parley? Jose Issbel Robles, minister of war in the cabinet of Eulalia Gutierrez, announced in El Paso tonight t; at the leaders of the two larger warring factions have agreed to discuss peace terms, ! perhaps within two wreeks. Since the overthrow of Gutier rez’s government, Robles has not been identified with either Villa or Carranza factions and was: chosen by those Janxious to end the war. Robles says that by! the middle of July Villa will be on the border and will be met by Obregon. He intimated that the success of his work had been hastened by fear created at headquarters of Villa and Carranza that the j revolution believed about to be begun by Huerta would so com plicate the situation that the | United States might intervene. No Rest for Sr. Huerta, A dispatch received at the j State Department says that Vir-; toriano Huerta and General Pas- j cual Orozco will be taken to San Antorio to answer additional ‘charges made against them there United States district attorneys tonight gave out the information that these charges have been pre pared to be filed tomorrow, Wnile similar to the charges filed in El Paso, it was stated that the evidence against the two |leaders is much stronger here in San ! Antonio. Officers of the Department of Justice sav that the evidence sup porting the charge of setting on : toot an expedition against Mexi I co is such that they are hopeful of convictions. The government will insist upon not less than a $25,000 bond for Huerta. COMMISSIONERS OP ACCOUNTS The commissioners of accounts convened at the court house last Monday morning for the pupose . of checking up the accounts of the various county officers. Thev are, P. B. Jones of Jack son township, H. A. Sykes and Finis Murrah of Missouri town ship and they expect to finish their work by Saturday. Last Sunday evening Prescott was visited by a hard windstorm accompanied by a down pour of rain. Three stores were unroof ed and quite a number of shade trees and fences were blown down. The stores unroofed were the three little bricks belonging to C. C. Hamby, next to the post office. They were occupied by John White, cafe, Ben Webb, pool room and Daniel & Son, shoe shop and pressing shop. There was considerable damage to each and none of them carried torna do insurance. In addition to the storm and rain Sunday, we had hard rain Monday and Tuesday with considerable wind again Monday. The crops are looking fine. Corn prospects were never better.

Berlin, via London, June 30 — Official circles in Berlin are au-1 thority for the statement that no intimation respecting the con tents of the forthcoming German note in reply to the American note bearing on the sinking of the Lusitania has reached Wash ington, because those engaged in drafting the document have themselves not determined its tenor as eat. The Admiralty professes igno rance of its contents. The For eign Office is said to he working on four different drafts and try ing to select one that will recon cile the viewpoint of Germany and the United States. lhe possibility that a satisfac tory solution to the Lusitania problem might be reached was: hinted at by an official of the Foreign Office who recently de clared: “President Wilson’s note showed that the matter could be adjusted. It was in the nature of a bridge across the trouble; j our reply probably will be anoth er girder strengthening that bridge.” The German note probably will be ready for transmission at the end of this week or early next week. SINGING CLASS I will start a singing class at at the Baptist church next Mon day night for the benefit of all who wishes to learn to sing. Tui tion for the twenty evenings will be $2.00.

Mrs. Shanks is greatly im proved since our last write up, and if she takes no*back set she will soon be on her feet again. The crops are looking better since the rain, and if it continues raining there will be more than an average crop. Arthur Cornelius made his reg ular call at Mr. Stoudts’ last Sunday and reports everything still running smooth. Miss Ruby is a fine little girl and we can’t blame Arthur for seeing as he does. Mr. Geo. Moore failed to make his call at Miss Myrtie’s house last Sunday on account of rain, but says maybe there will come a time when there will be no clouds, otherwise all sunshine and happiness. How about this, Miss Mirt? Cam McGuire had on the new “pants” again last Sunday and says if anybody noticed them it is more than he knows, but lis ten Cam, you are rather young yet and when you get to wear ing longer pants, the girls will notice you more. Miss Lillie Ward was all smiles last Sunday, guess she must have heard from Hope. Emery Moore still repeats, Au drey and Mildred look good to him, but girls, how about Emery ? The boys here played Upper Shady Grove a good gams of ball here on last Saturday, score d to 2 in our favor, and will play them again on their ground next Saturday. Our school started here on last Mo iday morning with the pros pect of a line school, with Prof, Thurman McDaniel as teacher Saxon McGuire had the mis fortune of losing a line young mule last week, snagged itself and died in about five minutes. Asberry Moody and wife were visiting their father and mother here this week, Mr. and Mrs. T„ D. Buchanan. Our literary society was rained out last Saturday night, but will have the same program for the 2nd Saturday night in July.

A BILLION DOLLAR BALANCE OF TRADE Excess of Exports Over !Imports $400,000,000 Above All Records Washington.—A billion dollar trade balance—the greatest in the American history in a year which has seen commerce de pressed by 11 months of world war. is the commercial record of the United States. The Depart ment of Commerce announces that with the closing of the fiscal year at midnight it is certain the billion dollar mark has been passed. “The figures for 11 months ending May 31,” it was announc ed, “show a favorable balance of j $983,117,479. As 13 ports which ordinarily handle 90 per cent of the country’s foreign trade show for June an export balance of approximately $60,000,000, it is certain the excess of exports over in ports has exceeded $1, 000,000,000, surpassing by near ly $400,000,000 the highest pre vious record.” The movement of gold from the United States, which at the beginning of the war caused grave concern, has been reversed overwhelmingly as a result of the immense exports.
