If this does not rock the boat of "big business" Jn Mexico, there are things to come, that will. "Big Bnslneas" at the Bottom. Mexicans who have knowledge of the hidden forces behind the Car ranza revolution are convinced that but for the activities oC American "big business" to obtain control of the railways of. their country' there would "have been no revoluOoaj r, If started, If would have died an early datb. Proof, clear and con vincing,, or the accuracy of this sum ming up o the revolutionary situa- .tlon in Mexico in Its broader mean ing has come to the Herald and The Omaha Bee. This proof is found In a mass of what may be termed the "Inside correspondence" of the rev olutionary junta at Washington, showing as this does the close touch which the constitutionalist leaders have had and have maintained with certain "big interests" in the United States.

Former Governor J. Frank Hanley of Indiana nnd Oliver W. Stewart, talked. It "was declared that when the people really mako up their mind that they want nation-wide prohibition, worse than anything else, they will get It. For tljo purpose of persuading them that they want it, nlnd speakers will mako a s'x months' campaign In 150 large cities, be ginning September 90 at Peoria, III.

Somo of 'the principals to the mediation conference here began to' losp hope last night that General Carranza ever would permit his representatives to participate in the proposed informal conference with the Huerta delegates for tho solution of Mexico's Internal problems. No word came to any of the mediators as to Carranza's intentions and skepticism began to manifest itself, especially when news dispatches from Monterey showed that not only was telegraphic communi cation with the Constitutionalist chief In, excellent condition, but that he had spent. the day in amusements, Ignoring 'the anxiety of the mediators and delegates for some definite word of his purposes. The impression hero is that while the constitutionalist representatives in Wash ington with whom the mediators are in formally communicating say they are de- ltroua of bringing about the meeting, General carranza, uiinxs otherwise aa the military success of his troops prob ably will increase his self-confidence and independence. The mediation colony. Is disposed to wait until Monday for-sbmo definite word, but then there may be. some expression on the course that will be pursued. "Spooning is Crime Against Womanhood," Says S. S. Speaker CHICAGO, June ." Spooning Is a crime against Womanhood," John J. Alex ander, a 'director, today told 600 young Women attending the older girls' confer ence of the International Sunday school convention. "Pass the word alopg to girls who love to 'spoon' that It is the most degrading thing they can do, one of the most degrading things they can permit. "Make tho boys clean-minded and wholesome by the way you dress. Young men tako a girl at her own valuation." Miss Margaret Slattery of Boston made similar talk at the- older boys' confer ence. Using a flower as an emblem of womanhood and tearing It apart, bit. by bit, she said. 'No person on earth can make that flower wholo and beautiful again. Be clean and be your sister's keeper."

NEW FIRE ALARMS SALEM Wind Carries Sparks Over City's "Undamaged Residence Fart. VERY LITTLE DAMAGE IS DONE Latest Illnse Believed ' o Have Stnrted from Mill dlenlDK Emhfn of Thursday's Conflagration. SAI.KH, Mass., June 28.-Tho cty be-, caine excited for n time last night when a general alarm was sounded for a flro which was not subdued until It had de stroyed two houses and badly damaged a third on the edge of tho burned dis trict. A brisk wind blowing over the glowing embers of Thursday's conflagra tion carried the sparks high and far over the undamaged portion of the resi dence quarters. Militiamen dropped their police duties and turned fire fighters, carrying hose up ladders and assisting the regular flro men In other ways. Prompt action of the fire department and the mllltla made- It certain within an hour after tho fire was discovered that there would bo' no .further spread. While the cause of tho blaze was not definitely decided it was bclloved to have started from a spark from the still glow ing embers of Thursday's fire. Shortly before 10 o'clock a heavy drlz zlo of rain set In. From the point of view of the fire fighters this was de sirable, but It promised much distress in the tent cotonles. The relief committee at once began preparations to provido adequate shelter. The state police, under Deputy .George C. Ncal, began today with the. city offi cials, an Investigation of reports from several sources that a number of the smaller fires which contributed to the' destruction of one-half of Salem during Thursday's conflagration were of incen diary origin. .
