Peace Envoys Propose Plan For Elim-
ination of Present Regime and
Substitution of Temporary
Commission in Mexico.
Washington.—The plan for the pari
flration of Mexico now being worked
out by the South American mediators
and which it 1h announced would elim-
inate Huerta and establish a provis-
ional government In which both the
adherents of Huerta and the consti-
tutionalists would be represented, will
not be acceptable to the constitution-
alists, or to the dictator, from latest
reports from both factions.
This, the first intimation as to the
details of mediation plans, became
known though neither the mediators
nor state department officials would
make any statement as to how nearly
complete is the plan to be submitted
to the American and the Mexican del-
egates when they meet the South
American envoys at Niagara Falls,
It was learned that the proposal
might be that the setting up of a tem-
porary government be undertaken by
a commission of five persons, two of
them to be named by Huerta, two by
the constitutionalists and the fifth by
the mediators.
Nelson O'Shaughnessy, charge d'af-
faires of the American embassy at
Mexico City, told President Wilson
the story of what happened in the
Mexican capital during the days im-
mediately preceding and following the
occupation of Vera Cruz and gave him
an intimate picture of General Hu-
erta. It was the first time Mr.
O'Shaughnessy had seen the president
since his arrival In Washington last
week. He was at the White House for
more than an hour and went away
highly pleased with his reception.
The charge advised the president
that Huerta was stubborn and not apt
to surrender his position as dictator
easily. He expressed the opinion,
however, that any government set up
1 Mexico which has the support of
the United States will stand.
After he left the White House Mr.
O'Shaughnessy Intimated that he be-
lieved President Wilson had a broad
and firm view of the Mexican ques-
tion. He quickly disposed of reports
that he believed he had been badly
treated by the administration.
It is understood that Mr. O'Shaugh-
nessy's account of General Huerta was
such as to strengthen, If possible, the
president's determination to force the
elimination of the Mexican dictator.
He denied, however, that General Hu-
erta was the diunkard he has been
painted in some quarters and he also
told the president he had not believed
the Tampico incident had been
planned by Huerta to bring about
trouble with the United Statesc.
Wilson's Official Family Breaks Coun-
cil With Optimistic Views.
Washington.—Expressions of confi-
dence that mediation would avert war
between the United States and Mex-
ico were made by several members
of the cabinet after President Wilson
had discussed the whole situation w ith
his official family.
The President Is decidedly hopeful.
He is anxious that no untoward inci-
dents or indiscret acts on the part of I
any of the forces in Mexico should de- j
velop to cloud the horizon when the
mediation conference begins at Ni-
agara Falls.
Secretary Bryan in a conference ex-
plained at length to the three South
American mediators that the light- j
house on Lobos Island had not been
seized in any military sense; that the
keepers were free to come and go, !
but that the American navy had un- 1
dertaken ;o keep the lights burning !
as a protection to the world's naviga-
One tense phase of the situation has
been relieved by news that J. R. Still-
man, American vice consul at Saltillo, '
has been ordered released by the Hu-
erta government.
Justice Lamar of the United Statei
eupreme court and Frederick Leh-
roann, former solicitor-general, who
have been named as the American
representatives at the mediation con
ference, are studying data on Mexico |
and official reports aad familiarizing
themselves generally with the Mex-
ican problem.
Praises Noble Sacrifice of Ninetten
Soldiers Who Died at
Vera Crux.
New York.—New York Joined the
nation in memorializing with simple
dignity the heroism of the nineteen
blue-jackets and marines who gave
their lives at Vera Cruz. As the most
impressive funeral pageant since the
Spanish war started from the battery
to the Brooklyn navy yard, it was as
if the pulse of the city had stopped.
All business was suspended and over
the commercial section of the city
there fell a reverential hush. The as-
semblage, which numbered over 1,000,- I
000 of New York's polyglot population,
stood shoulder to shoulder
It was a spectacle of a city strange- ;
ly transfigured and lifted out of it- j
self. In the line of mourners that fol-
lowed the artillery caissons bearing
the dead were the chiefs of state and
city government, and many more dis-
tinguished men of nearly every call-
ing; but every eye in the throngs
that lined the way turned first to the
carriage where President Wilson rode
close behind the last funeral car. The
president came from Washington dur-
ing the night and was with the pro-
cession from the time it left the bat-
tery until the square of marines fired '
their parting volleys over the flag- |
draped coffins at the Brooklyn navy
yard, and the navy bugler sounded
the "taps"
On the stand with the president at
the navy yard were relatives of the
dead sailors and marines, mothers, sis-
ters and wives, but in all the throng
of mourners none seemed more deeply
touched by the spirit of the day than
the man whose word sent the lads of
the navy to fight for their country's
honor at Vera Cruz.
And to the president was left the
privilege of voicing the nation's grief
and the nation's belief that those who
died in the performance of duty had
done for their country a service not
to be measured by their individual
' The reeling that is uppermost," he
said, "is one of profound grief, and
yet there is mixed with that grief a
profound pride and if I may say it out
of my heart, a touch of envy of those
who were permitted so quietly, so
nobly to do their duty."
The head of the nation looked out
over the thousands massed about the
coffins on the parade grounds and
his voice shook with emotion as he
declared his creed.
"We have gone down to Mexico," he
said, "to serve mankind if we can flnft
out a way. We do not want to fight
the Mexicans. We want to serve the I
There was a wistful note In his
▼olce as he added: "I never was under
fire; but I fancy that there are some ,
things just as hard to do as to go
under fire. I fancy that It is just as 1
hard to do your duty when men are
sneering at you as when they are
shooting at you. When they shoot
at you they can only take your natural
life; when they sneer at you they can
wound your heart."
Famous Star Had Three Matrimonial
Ventures, Her Last Husband
Being Geo. W. Young a
New York Banker.
Batavla, Java.—Madame Nordica is
dead Pneumonia, contracted from
the shock and exposure of a ship-
wreck on Thursday Island In the An-
tipodes, ended the career of one of
the world's most famous singers. Just
as she had started upon what she had
planned would be her farewell tour
of the world.
Lillian Nordica was an American
singer of world-wide fame. Her ad-
mirers, ranged from the men of the
Bowery section of New York, where
she had sung at mission meetings, to
the most critical box holders of grand
opera houses In all of the world's
great musical centers. The purity of
her voice, employed in many tongues,
had delighted hundieds of thousands
since the day, forty years ago, she
first appeared In public as soprano
soloist at Grace church in Boston.
A farm house built by the prima
donna's grandfather on a hill just out-
side the village of Farmington, Me.,
was Nordica's birthplace In 1859. Her
true name was Lillian Norton. She
changed It to the Italian Nordica,
twenty years later when she began to
study in Italy for an operatic career.
Her debut In opera was at Brescia,
In 1879 in "La Traviate." After a trip
to St. Petersburg she appeared for
trial before Ambrose Thomas and the
Impressarlo, Vancorbell, who engaged
her for the Grand Opera House in
Triumphs at Home.
She returned to America and toured
this country was great success. In
the succeeding years she appeared in
grand opera or concert in almost ev-
ery city of musical culture In the
world. Her repertoire included more
than fifty operas. Her success with
Wagnerian roles became the pinnacle
of her fame. At Bayreuth In 1894 she
appeared as Elsa In "Lohengrin." and
she Is, perhaps, best remembered in
that part. She received decorations
of various sorts abroad, and gifts
without number from friends at home.
Her matrimonial ventures num-
bered three. She was first married in
1882 to Frederick A. Gower, a wealthy
electrician and a native of her state
of Maine, whom she met In Paris.
Shortly nfter she had begun separa-
tion proceedings In 1884, Gower dis-
appeared. He attempted a balloon trip
across the English channel. Although
the balloon was later found, nothing
was ever heard or seen of him.
Accident Causes Pneumonia.
In 1896, Mme. Nordica married Zol-
tan Poeme, a Hungarian army officer
and Binger, from whom she secured
a divorce in 1905.
Her third marriage was In London
In 1909 to Geo. W. Young, a wealthv
New York banker. It was announced
at that time that Nordica would re-
tire from the stage, but after a honey-
moon spent in part at the old Norton
homeBtead in Maine, she decided upon
a farewell concert court of the world
It was while making one leg of this
trip on the Dutch steamer Tasman.
that the vessel ran ashore on Thurs-
day Island In the Antipodes The
shock of the accident and exposure
brought on pneumonia. Mme. Nor-
dica's admirers felt It to be a partic-
ularly tragic circumstance that the
famous singer should have fallen dan
gerously ill on the other side of the
Big Oil Loss From Lightning.
Tulsa.—Two oil tanks owned by the
Pierce Oil corporation containing
more than 90,000 barrels were struck
by lightning on the tank farms of
that concern near here during one of
the most terrific rain and hail storms
that has visited this section in sev-
eral years. The total loss in oil will
reach at least $50,000 while the dam-
age to the tanks will reach half that
figure. When efforts to checlc the
burning oil failed, the tanks were
openttJ for drainage.
Finally Freed of Bucks Stove Co.
Contempt Cases.
Washington.—Ending seven years
of bitter legal warfare, the supreme
court set aside sentences imposed by
the District of Columbia supreme
court upon Samuel Gompers, John i
Mitchell and Frank Morrison for con-
tempt of court in violation of injunc-
tions issued in 1907 and 1908 against
boycotting the Bucks Stove and Range
Co. The question of whether the acts i
of the labor leaders constituted con-
tempt was not passed upon, the court
disposing of the cases by holding pros-
ecution was barred by the statute of ■
limitations, the proceedings having j
been started more than three years
after the alleged offense.
In 1911 the supreme court set aside
sentences against Gompers, Mitchell
and Morrison because they had been
prosecuted under criminal Instead of
civ1' statutes.

College of Bishops Admits Surrender
of All Control Over Vanderbilt
Oklahoma City.—Oklahoma extend-
ed a three-fold welcome to visiting
Methodists from over the south when
Ed. S. Vaught, D. H. Linebaugh and
Rev. W. A. Shelton, representing the
city, the state and the church respect-
ively, voiced from the pulpit of St.
Luke's church the pleasure Oklaho-
mans will find in entertaining the
seventeenth quadrennial conference
which was formally opened here Wed-
nesday. The response on behalf of
the conference was by Bishop E. R.
Hendrix of Kansas City.
The opening session witnessed the
taking of initial steps in the three
weeks of work ahead of the confer-
ence. The meeting was featured by
tho reading of the Episcopal address
from the college of bishops, which
was read from the pulpit by Bishop
W. A. Candler of Atlanta, Ga.
The Episcopal address was a vol-
uminous affair, containing approxi-
mately 22,000 words and required
three hours in the reading. In it, the
college of bishops touched on multi-
farious toplcB vital to the church, not-
able among them the Vanderbilt uni-
versity subject, the bishops recom-
mended that this problem be referred
to a committee of five from the gen-
eral conference. On the subject of
new bishops, the college recommend-
ed that no new ones be elected.
Settlement of the Vanderbilt ques-
tion Is uppermost In the minds of the
delegates and officers. Since 1905 the
church has had this matter under con-
sideration. On March 21, 1914. the
supreme court of Tennessee handed
down the opinion which took away
from the church any control it might
have exercised over the school prev-
A. F. Watkins of the Mississippi
conference, who was secretary of the
last quadrennial conference, called

temporary secretary of the confer-
ence and afterward elected its per-
manent secretary by acclamation.

Rebels Demolishing the City With
Field Artillery.
Washington.--The fiercest battle of
the revolution is being waged at Tam-
pico between constitutionalists and
the federal garrison, according to re
ports reaching here. By the light of
burning tanks and an oil well, the
rebels poured shot and shell on the
city from twenty field guns.
For the first time in the fighting
between the soldiers of Huerta and
Carranza. the constitutionalists are on
equal terms with the federals in the
matter of artillery. The twenty
French field guns captured and placed
in position before Tampico have done
tremendous execution.

with a transport and tender have land-

Senate Clerk Arrested in Mexico
Charged With Embezzlement.

Altus.—To face a charge of embez- j
zllng $5,300 of Jackson county court ;
funds while he was district court j
clerk from 1907 to 1911, Ned McDaniel, i
secretary of the senate and secretary
of the state election board under an
act pnssed by the last legislature, was
brought back to Altus from Browns-
ville, Texas, In charge of John Bailey,
sheriff of Jackson county.
McDaniel was arrested at Matamor-
as, Mexico. After a search for Mc-
Daniel lasting several weeks, Bailey
located him at the Mexican city across
from Brownsville. He went there,
first sought the aid of the American
consul, who said there was no way to
transport his man across the line, and
then negotiated with the rebel com-
nander of the troops there.
McDaniel was arrested by Mexican
troops who marched him across the
bridge over the Rio Grande.
Two deputies from the state exam-
iner and inspector's office have been
in Altus for several months checking
up the books in the county offices.
After the alleged shortage in the offioo
of district clerk was discovered, an
effort was made, it is said, to induce
McDaniel to make it good and avoid
prosecution. McDaniel did reduce
the alleged shortage from $5,700 to
$5,300, but failed to act further in the
case and shortly afterwards disap

State Fire Loss Small in April.
Fire loss in Oklahoma for the
month of April was the lowest of any
month of the present year and one
of the lowest since the creation of
the office of the state fire marshal, ac-
cording to the monthly report just
submitted to State Insurance Commis-
sioner A. L. Welch by State Fire Mar-
shal C. C. Hammonds.
The total loss for the month was
$177,053.85, of which $69,139.74 was on
contents, and $107,934.11 on build-
ings. There were 134 fires during the
Two fires resulting from spontane-
ous combustion resulted in the loss
of $52,125 on buildings, and $11,152.-
50 on contents, being the largest loss
from a single case.
Mr. Hammonds calls attention to
the fact that with the approach of
warm weather, the use of oil and gas-
oline stoves will increase with its
attendant fire hazard, and urges that
precaution be taken against fire from
this source.
Six persons have been arrested
charged with arson during the month,
three of whom have pleaded guilty
and received sentences of twenty-one
years in the penitentiary.
Seven persons have met death in
the state during the month as a re-
sult of these fires and many others
have been painfully burned, the re-
port states.
Names On Ballot By Rotation Plan.
Secretary Ben W. Riley of the state
election board says that the provisions
of the new election law, providing a
system of rotation for the placing of
names of candidates on the ballot for j
the August primary would he followed
to the letter. Circular letters are now-
being sent out from his office to the
election officers in the various coun-
ties, calling their attention to that
provision of the law and directing
them to act accordingly in the prep-
aration of ballots for the August pri-

candidates In some parts of the state
that the old system of alphabetical

The important ruling that an ad-
ministrator of an estate may main-
tain an action to recover damages on
the part of a person who had brought
suit for personal injuries under the
fellow servant law but who died pend-

made by Judge Brewer in an opinion
of the supreme court. The case is

ered in such a case cannot go to the i

to the estate of the deceased.

Complain To Corporation Commission
A complaint charging the Western
Union Telegraph company at Tahle-
quah with violation of the order of
the corporation commission relative
to the free delivery of prepaid tele-
grams within the two-mile limit, was
made to the commission by H. R. Wil-
liams, a teacher in the Tahlequah
state normal school.
Williams alleges that the local
agent charged him 25 cents for deliv-
ering a prepaid message to the nor-
mal building which he says is within
the two-mile limit.
A complaint was made to the com-
mission from the Ackimo Fuel and
Supply Co. of Wichita, Kan., vs. the
Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Rail-
way Co. and the Wichita Falls and
Northwestern Railway. The com-
plainant company claims that a car of
coal consigned to It at Knowles, Okla.,
was refused by the shipper and that
although this occurred on June 19,
1913, the complainant was not noti-
fied until September 6, 1913, and was
therefore compelled to pay $42 demur-
rage charges. Ahe coal company
asks a refund of the demurrage
Cattle Have White Plague.
Fifteen cattle from a herd of twen-
ty-two cows shipped Into Oklahoma
City for dairy purposes have been
found to be infected with tuberculosis,
according to report made to President
G. T. Bryan of the state board of agri-
culture Saturday by Dr. E. V. Robnett,
city veterinarian. The cattle will be
condemned and killed. Tho city au-
thorities have no power under the law
to condemn cattle and for this reas-
on the matter was turned over to the
state autarkies for action.
The herd was shipped In from Illinois
a few days ago. Dr. Robnett stated
that the tests showed plain re action on
te part of fifteen cattle and that the
whole herd is under suspicion as the
rest of the eattfr showed a tendency

Five-Day Tip on Price Cut.
At least two of the pipe line com- !
panles will follow the same course

five days in advance of any proposed !
cut in price of crude oil, without an j
order of the commission making such
reulrement, according to telegrams re- j
ceived by Attorney General West and i
made public by him. Officials of the
Prairie and Gulf Pipe Line companies
serving the Cushing field wired the at j
torney general to this effect. It. is
probable that all other pipe line com-
panies will follow the same course
and that the corporation commission
as a result will not find It necessary
to issue an order covering this ground.
Mother Needs His Help.
In order that he might support his
aged mother A. E. Perkey, who was
serving a four-year sentence from Co-
manche county for grand larceny was
paroled from the penitentiary by Gov-
ernor Cruce on recommendation of
the prison board of control. The hoard
received many letters expressing the
belief that Perkey had been punished
enough and stating that his mother
needed his help. Before being sent
to the Oklahoma prison Perkey had
just completed a five-year sentence

Good Digestion Follows Right Food.
Indigestion and the attendant dis-
comforts of mind and body are cer-
tain to follow continued use of im-
proper food.
Those who are still young and ro-
bust are likely to overlook the fact
that, as dropping water will wear a
stone away at last, so will the use of
heavy, greasy, rich food, finally cause
loss of appetite and indigestion.
Fortunately many are thoughtful
enough to study themselves and note
the principle of cause and effect In
their daily food. A N. Y. young wom-
an writes her experience thus:
"Sometime ago I had a lot of trou-
ble from indigestion, caused by too
rich food. I got so I was unable to
digest scarcely anything, and medi-
cines seemed useless.
"A friend advised me to try Grape-
Nuts food, praising it highly and as
a last resort, I tried it. I am thankful
to say that Grape-Nuts not only re-
lieved me of my trouble, but built me
up and strengthened my digestive or-
