WASHINGTON, Aug. 8,-After a con
ference with President Wilson at the
White, House early today Secretary Bryan
announced he had received the message
from Manuel Garza Adclpe, acting min
ister of foreign affairs, declaring on bo
half of President Huerta that the pres
ence of John Llnd will bo undesirable
In Mexico, unless he brought recognition
of the Huerta government.
Mr. Bryan said there was no change in
the plan with respect to Mr. Llnd's mis
sion. He declined to say what tne na
ture of the American government's reply
to the Adelpe message would be. He
added that the message, transmitted
through the American embassy at Mex
ico City, had been translated during tho
night and was presented early today to
President Wilson. The president had
taken the position that It was Incredible
that the Huerta government would re
fuse to receive an envoy bound on a
peaceful mission. "Receipt of todays mes
sage brought the situation to a diplo
matic crisis.
No Information was forthcoming after
the conference as to what the next step
In the policy of the American government
would be, but It was considered likely
the message of the reply to the acting
minister of foreign affairs would further
outline the friendly Intentions of tho
United States, which would bo expressed
by Mr. Llnd and would probably suggest
that Judgment be withheld concerning Mr.
Lind's mission until ho had had an op
portunity, through the American embassy
it Mexico City to transmit the views of
President Wilson und Secretary Kryan.
Following .the conference with Presi
dent Wilson, Secretary Bryan today is
sued the following statement:
"The statement of the Mexican foreign
office was based on misrepresentation
for which this government Is not re
sponsible. In sending Governor Llnd as
adviser to the embassy, the president Is
entirely within his right and this depart
ment will not assume that his going will
be regarded as unfriendly when the char
acter of his mission Is understood."

Emery Before the

WASHINGTON, Aug. 8.-James A.
Emery testified today before tho senate
lobby committee that James "W. Van

tion of Manufacturers had a large part
In the steps that led to the organization
of the National Tariff Commission as
sociation, which however, had no connec
tion with the National Association of
Manufacturers or the Industrial Council.
Emery testified the Tariff Commission
association employodyformer Representa
tive James E. Watson of Indiana, and
not the National Association of Manu
facturers, or the Industrial Council.
The M0 check to Watson drawn by
the manufacturers had previously been
put In evidence and Senator Walsh ex
pressed surprise at the apparent contra
diction. Emery said ho had been told
that the checks were accounted for by a
bookkeeping expedient, the National 'As
sociation of Manufacturers, a contributor
to the tariff association, paying the sums
direct to the former congressman.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 8.-Senator Joseph
F. Johnston of Alabama died at his apart
ment hero this morning Bhortly before i
Senator Johnston had been In poor
health and had not attended sessions of
tho senate for a week. He had been con
fined to his apartment much of the time,
but his trouble was not diagnosed as
pneumonia until a few days agi.
Senator Johnston was 70 years old, had
served through the war In tne confeder
ate army, was governor of Alabama two
terms and had been a member gt tho
senate since 1907. He was unanimously
olected to succeed the late Senator Pettus.
Ho was re-elected In 1909.
Tho death of Senator Johnston weakens
the democratic majority on the admlnls
tartlon tariff bill In tho sonate, though
party leaders Insist there still will be no
serious difficulty In passing tho measure.
In the democratic senate caucus It was
announced forty-nine senators had de
clared they would appoint the bill on its
final passage. At that time Senators
Ransdell and Thornton were Hie only
ones to declnre they would vote against
the bill because of the sugar schedule.
On the basis of tho caucus alignment
democratic loaders figured that the vote
on the tariff jjlll, without deflections
from either side, would be 49 to 47 for its
passago. Tho death of Senator Johnston
leaves tho calculation 48 to 47.
In the event that any western senator,
who does not stiongly favor free sugar,
might possibly voto against the bill, the
democrats had been counting on tho vice
president to carry tho day In the event
of a tie.
A'ote to He Close.
Senator Johnson's death, provided his
scat Is not filled before the vote on i the
.tariff bill, removes tne vice i"'-"
from the range of- possibilities on
strict alignment. Should one voto bo
lost to tho democrats on the basis ot
prescent forecasts and no member of
the minority- come" to their nld tho vote
would stand '48 47 against the bill.
There still is the possibility that at least
ono member of tho minority may voto
for the democratlo bill.
Danger of the democrats losing their
majority may bo obviated by the legis
lature of Alabama, under the seventeenth
amendment to the constitution, provld
lng quickly for the filling of the vacanoy
caused by Senator Johnston's death.
The constitutional amendment provides
for tho filling ot vacancies In tho Benato
In this way:
"Whon vacancies happen in the repre
sentation of any state in tne senate, the
oxccutlvo of such state shall Isbuo writs
of election to fill such vacancies, pro
vided the legislature of any state may
empower the executive thereof to mako
temporary appointments until-the people
fill tho vacancies by election as the
legislature may direct."
Mnr Call Extra. Session.
As In most ot the other states the Ala
bama legislature has not been In session
since the constitutional amendment was
adopted last spring and consequently has
not empowered the governor or Aiauama
to fill any vacancy by appointment until
an election may be held. The Alabama
legislature does not meet until 1915.
Democratic leaders In Washington, It
was said today, would urge on the gov
ernor of Alabama the desirability of his
calling the legislature into special ses
sion to give him authority ot appointment
or to provide for an Immediate election.
Senator Johnson already had announced
his Intention to be a candidate for re
election. Representative Hobson has
taken the slump against him and the
names of Representatives Clayton and
Heflln have been mentioned also as can
Majority Leader Underwood of the
house, also Is a possibility, though he
has said ho would not give up the house
leadership for a senatorial toga. Senator
Johnston was chairman of the military
affairs committee, one of the most im
portant of the senate.

The testimony showed that January 1,

Harris & Fuller, and that after repeated
calls for margins, tho debt was reduced

Bankers Talk the Matter Over with
Government Officials.
Plan of Hecnrltr mul the Plans of
Hit mill uu; the I.nnus Under
Discussion by
WASHINGTON, Aug. 8. Fifty bankers
from tho largo cities of the central west
conferred today with Secretary MoAdoo
and Assistant Secretary Williams re
garding tho distribution that sections
sharo of the JSO.OOO.OOO of treasury funds
ubout to bo deposited In banks for tho
movement of crops.
With a tentative decision readied to
placo $23,000,000, In the south to assist in
moving and marketing cotton and other
crops, tho principal question discussed
today was the division of the remainder
between the mlddlo nnd far west. The
bankers generally, It was Mated, wero
enthusiastic over tho prospect ot govern
ment assistance.
Secretary McAdoo. originally announced
that tho doposlts would range between
(125,(00,(100 and $60,000,000, but it now scorns
certain that ho will put out tho entire
330.000,000, becauso ot the unanimity ot
opinion among tho bankors In the crop
moving sections that the. funds would
materially aid In .averting Or. at least
uiminismng tne stringency characteristic
of tho fall.
Secretary McAdoo mndo it clear to. tho
bankers that whllo ho felt Impelled to
deposit tho money In the large centers In
tho agricultural belts, ho would Insist
thut tho big banks receiving the funds
should puss them along to the sitmllor or
country hanks at reasonable rates ot In
terest. Tho Treasury department Is
powerless to nanio tho rate of Interest,
but tho condition ot reasonableness will
uo iinposeu.
As to the Loans,
Asistant Secretary Williams Indicated
to tho bankers that tho government
would place a very broad construction
on commercial paper to bo accepted as
security for the dopoBlts. It will include
not only regular customers' loans, but
paper bated on all stablo commercial and
agricultural operations.
George M. Reynolds of Chicago and
other bankers from tho largo oltles told
the treasury officials that whllo thero
wus no pressing need for tho government
deposits, banks will be glad to get tho
monuy. Reynolds said there had been
decided Improvement in the flnunclul
situation during tho last few weeks.
Assistant Secretary Williams read from
the dally treasury statement to show that
the government was In o, position to de
posit, If necessury, (160,000,000.
In defining commercial paper, Secretary
wiiuums 'informed the bankers, tho
'treasury department would accept two
namo paper, or paper endorsed by re
sponsiuio Institutions and approved by
clearing house associations. While the as
sistant secretary would not state whether
publlo utility bonds would be accepted n3
security, he declured thut they would be
pushed on in each Instance.
J. C. Mlche.ll of Colorado anticipated a
great demand for money to move the
beet sugar crop and In that connection
usked tho Treasury department to gtvo
tho Denver banks 115,000,000 to 30,000.000
of tho deposits,

J. J. O'Comiell of Fort Dodge, la.,
though If the government Insisted on 10
per cent security In government bonds
tho prlco of tho bonds probably would
make the deposits unprofitable to the
banks. He recommended that the treasury
accept commercial paper at 00 per cent
of Iti face value as full security for the
Henry Rels of Evansvlllo, Ind., asked i
for $300,000 for that city and Arthur
Reynolds of Des Moines requested 500, 000 I

Secretary McAdoo, In his speech to the
bankers expressed the belief that the
usual stringent conditions In the fall re
sulted more from fear than from actual
necessity and he believed It the duty of
the government to anticipate such con
ditions, Prosldent Wilson received the bankers
at tho White House.
