Senor Sebastian Camocho, president of the Mexican senate, and one of Mexico's elder statesmen, telegraphed to James A. Bcryrnser, president or the Mexican Tele graph company, saying the American colony "Is satisfied and tranquil" and requesting him to call President Wilson's attention to "the tremendous damages, which would result from his warning for which In atl loyalty I state that there Is no reason." Missionaries Object. The Methodist Episcopal board of foreign missions received advices from Dr. John W. Butler, superintendent o its mission In Mexico City, saying that the "Washington Instructions for an American exodus" were "much resented" by th,e American colony, "that the rea sons given for It appear Inadequate" and that the missionaries there objected to leaving.

REFORM OF PROCEDURE NEEDED "We Need n Little More Frlendl? Gonilplnir br JndR( Over Buck Fcncea," Sara Speaker at Montreal Meet. MONTREAL, ' Aug. 51. Tha first Inter state conference of judges since the United States of America became a na tion met here tonight to plan for uni formity of judicial procedure. The con ference was preliminary to the annual meeting of the American Bar associa tion which opens here Monday. New York state was represented chiefly by the presiding judges of Its courts of last resort. Three were present, also Judges representing the nine federal circuit courts of appeals and the federal court of Hawaii, Porto Rico and the court of appeals ot the District ot Columbia, The aim of the conference la to elimi nate delay and reduce the expenses ot litigation. The judges wish to have the courts released -from some of the statutes that now bind then and left free to make their own rules? It was suggested that the supreme court have' superin tendence over the rules of pleading and practice In all federal and stato. courts and gradually bring about' Uniform court procedure. Shelton Presides. Thomas W, Shelton oi Virginia, chair man of tho committee on uniform judicial procedure ot the bar association, pre sided. In his address, Mr. Shelton pre dicted that the gathering would mean to Interstate Judicial delegations what the Mount Vernon conference of 1785 between Virginia and Maryland meant to Inter state commerce relations. The practical men of commerce, said Mr. Shelton, are demanding the Injection of practical common sense In the ma chinery of the courts and congress and the legislatures are being called upon to give the courts the necessary power. He .advocated a "flxel system of Interstate judicial relations," declaring that It ought to be quite as possible and even less difficult than the present plan of Interstate commerce relations. Instead of thousands of merchants, manufactur ers and bankers and hundreds ot rail roads and other human endeavors, creat ing difficult complications to solve, there would bo forty-tight supreme appellate courts and nine federal circuit courts of appeals to agree upon any given prin ciple, "We need a little more friendly gossip ing by the judges over the bock fences," he adaea.

There is an expression "la the know," which la rather pat. To be "in the know" means to bo Informed, or rather to have special, inside Information that perhaps others have not. This phrase may ba very aptly applied to those of our readers who carefully read the advertisements every day in The Bee as contrasted with, those readers who are not so enterprising. J3lng "in the know" on the subject ot advertising gives ono a marked advantage over those who aro not "in tho know." One's dollar goes farther, shop ping Is made easier and ridicu lous and wasteful purchases are eliminated. Not to be "In the know" means careless, out-of-date-ness and extravagance, Read the advertisements daily and be "In the know." J
