PEACE ENVOYS ARE ANXIOUS

Niagara Falls, Ont.—After a day of
waiting with no word of the plans of
the Constitutionalists on the proposed
Informal conference with the Jluerta
delegates over Mexico's internal af-
fulrs, the mediation colony is showing
signs of anxiety.
The constitutionalist victory at Za-
catecas, it is recognized, may have a
psychological influence on the situa-
tion. If it produces cohesion in the
Constitutionalist ranks and a lust for
military successes, close observers
think the Constitutionalists will be
less disposed to leave the question to
That the American government will
use its influence for the settlement
of the controversy by diplomacy is not
doubted here. The program of the
Constitutionalists may be to capture
the governmental power by military
strength, but indications are that the
United States may withhold its
strongest pressure—the premise of
recognition—if further bloodshed and
loss of life is not averted and terms
of peace arranged, especially when
the Huerta government is ready and
anxious for peace on any honorable
Interests Misled Villa.
ICl Paso, Tex.—Discussion of the
Carranza-Villa estrangement was re-
opened by Roberto Pesqueira, conii-
dential agent for the constitutionalist#
here, who formerly was stationed at
Washington. In a series of commu-
nications with General Villa he criti-
cized the northern military zone com-
mander for denying the arrests by his
troops of national constitutionalist of-
ficers at Juarez and the confiscation
of national treasury funds there.
Pesqueira told Villa In a recent tele-
gram that he considered it useless to
deny "the actual facts so well known
here at the border."
He also issued a statement assert-
ing that Villa had been misled by fi-
Zacatecas a Eig Victory.
Zacatecas, \lex.— Villa drove from
Zacatecas a force which greatly ex-
ceeded his own. according to official
estimates. Hetween 13,000 and 14,000
federals defended the city wTTile the
Constitutionalists, numbering about
15,000, could employ only about half
this number in the four days of at-
tack which resulted in victory for the
Villa troops, the taking of hundreds
of prisoners and munitions and the
demoralized retreat of the remnants
of General I'arron's army.
Benjamin Argumedo and Antonio
Rojas, former Orozco rebel leader,
generals of federal irregular troops,
were killed in action on the outskirts
of Zacatecas, according to an official
announcement from General Villa's
headquarters. It was asserted by
leaders here that the last act of Gen-
eral Barron was to blow up the build-
ing in which Attorney Majallanes
lived. He, his wife and eight chil-
dren perished. The youngest child re-
turned to find the demolished house
and the bodies of her parents, broth-
ers and sisters.
Naon Waits at Niagara.
Niagara Falls, Ont.—As it probably
will be several days before the me-
diators are called upon to take any
further action in regard to the Mex-
ican problem, Ambassador Da Gama
of Brazil left here to join Mrs. Da
Gama at Long Branch, N. J., for a few
days. Minister Naon of Argentina
will remain here to greet the Consti-
tutionalist representatives and intro-
duce them to the Huerta delegates,
should this be necessary.
The Protocol Signed.
Niagara Falls, Ontario.—Terms for
composing all internatioital differ-
ences between the United States and
Mexico have been concluded. The
conditions under which diplomatic re-
lations will be resumed have been em-
bodied in a protocol which was signed
by the ambassador from Brazil, the
ministers of Chili and Argentina and
the American and Huerta delegates.
The character of the settlement is
not expected to arouse opposition
from the constitutionalists who will
participate in, and to a largo degree

The Way of Progress.
A dog barking at a passing automo-
bile is generally supposed to be as tell-
ing a symbol of futile objection to the
march of progress as could well be
imagined. In the almost same category,
however, belongs the strike of the
stevedores in New Orleans against the
introduction of the electric truck to
transport freight between vessels and
warehouses. The wonder is that this
improvement has been so long delayed
instead of only now appearing—and
then as a source of a new labor diffi-
culty. One cannot have much sym-

instance. The motor vehicle in all of
its forms has come to stay, and the

ECZEMA ITCHED AND BURNED
R. F. D. No. 2, Seymour, Mo.—"My
scalp broke out with fine pimples at
the Btart. They itched and burned so
much that I was compelled to scratch
them and they would fester and come
to a head and break out again. The
trouble was attended by such burning
and Itching I could not sleep, also
when I sweat it burned the same.
My hair fell out gradually and the
scalp kept rough and dry with itching
and burning. After about two ySars
the pimples broke out between my
shoulders. My clothing irritated them.
I was troubled with that eczema live
or six years.

The American Farmer.
All things lyjcalled, wouldn't it be
the part of statesmanship to do con-
gressionally for the American farmer?
He's one-fourth of your population,
and the nation's best hope. The
American merchant borrows at live
per cent. The American stock gam-
bier, producing nothing, accomplish-
ing nothing, a merest leech living by
toil of others, borrows for even
less. The American farmer, with all
that can be said to his good and solv-
ent advantage, must and does pay 8V&
And all the time the savings and
postal banks are bulging with billions.
If the government would make two
blades of grass grow where but one
has grown before—and publicly it
would pay—the wide-flung chance lies
open. Let It model action on French
or German lines, and place the farmer
on a borrowing par with the merchant
the manufacturer and the stock job-
ber. Let it evolve a system of farm
loans which shall put those savings
and postal bank billions at a per cent
within the farmer's borrowing reach
