Niagara Kails, June 17—On a word
from Washington depends the next
move in mediation.
Justice Lamar and Frederick I<eh-
tnan, commissioners representing thf
United States, telegraphed a twr
thousand word report of their con-
ference yesterday at Buffalo with
Rafael Zuburan and Louis Cabrira, thr
authorlze-d representatives of Carran
za In the United States.
The general feeling is that thr
United States may change Its policy
following reports of friction betweer
Generals Carranza and Villa, the con
stitutionallsts' reverses on land an<^
sea and the attitude of Zubaran and
Justice I^amar and Frederick W
Lehman, the American delegates ic

ferring for four hours in Buffalo with
Rafael Zubaran and Luis Cabrera
personal representatives of fJeneni!
Carranza, failed to find a way to brinp
the constitutionalists in harmon}
with the scope of mediation.
The constitutionalist representa-
tives who had come from Washington
especially to see the American dele-
gates. told them why they could no.
agree to an armistice, why only s
man prominent in the constitutions*
ist ranks will be accepted by them to:
the provisional presidency, and final
ly they said they believed the consti-
tutionalist army would settle thf
Mexican problem If left unhampered
by foreign compilations.
The Americans returned to Niagara
Falls, feeling "that so far as the po-
litical pacification of Mexico is con
cerned. mediation had accomplished
nothing and jtrobably the end of the
conferences was very near.
The next full conference .is set for
Friday at 11 a. m, Until then little
will be done because of the absence
of Minister Naon of Argentina.

Chicago, 111., June 17.—"There is
little use for us to talk in the con
ventions as to what we should do to
make the world a better place to live
in when you see such things as that,"
said Mrs. P. A. McDougal, past
president of the Oklahoma State
Federation, yesterday to a reporter.
Mrs. McDougal had come over
Michigan boulevard to see the child-
ren's pageant in Grant park, when
she happened to notice the thing
which made her remark as she did.
A very pretty woman, so the re-
porter thought, was sitting in the
window of the Congress hotel annex,
the fifth window over the entrance
of Blum's store, and smoking a
cigaret. She wore a dark blue coat,
long white gloves, and had a white
collar on. The way she handled the
"nail" showed it was no new ex-
perience. Ano'her woman, an older
one, and not nearly so good looking,
was not smoking, but seemed to look
on with approval.
"I wish I could do something to
let her know what. I think of her.
Out where we live you never see
anything like that. I am told that
there Is a good bit o'f it. in the cast.

ANNA SHAW'S ODD
VIEWS ON WEDLOCK
Philadelphia, Pa., June 17.-*-"The
marriage ceremony has outlived Its
usefulness and should be relegsted to
oblivion." This in a nutshell is the
view of Dr. Anna Shaw, president of
the National Woman Suffrage asso-
"Why folks are always seeking an
old maid's views of matrimony Is
something that I never could under-
stand," Dr. Shaw said. "But it seems
to be tiie case, and, what is more,
some even go a Btep further and ask
me to marry them. The marriage
service, for one thing, is a poll par-
"The method as used reciting the
pledge is ridiculous, to say the least.
There is no solemnity, dignity or
character to that kind of a marriage.
I have officiated at a great many
ceremonies, especially when I h^d
my own church in the West, and '
have never known of a divorce
among the parties. I have always
believed in maJking the ceremony fit
the occasion. In other words. T have
a different service for each marriage.
"As for the word Obey, I only had
one girl who wanted to make such a
crazy promise. In fact she insisted
on it and I refused to marry her. No
woman obeys her husband. No man
with common sense aslkB his wife to
obey him. Therefore, I think that It
is positively wicked to use this word.
It Is spiritually and morally wrong to
encourage a woman to mpiWe a
promise she knows in her heart she
will not keep. The old Idea that a
woman should obey her husband was
all very well for the patriarch days.
"I have been crlttclsed for cutting
out 'Until death do us part.' How
do I or any other minister know
whether the couple will be flying to
the divorce court In a year or two?
We can not look Into the future.
Why, then, should we try to force
ourselves to believe that they will live
happy ever after? To them the say-
ing of Till death do us part' is only
a mockery." "fit
