As the result of bis visit to Wasn-

"I an highly pleased with !he sat-

Interview I had In Washington last
Thursday with Secretary Uine mid
with Judge Gruv of the American
tomml'sio'i" said Mr. Zambraiio.
"I went to Washington December
20 on a special mission from General
Carranza with the object or soliciting
an Interview with both Mr. Ijuic and
Judge Grav. which Interview on ac-
count of tho holidays was delayed

of my country and tho desire tha

to the Mexican government to the end
that the said government shall bo In

"I have never doubted that the dif-
ficulties between Mexico and the
I'nlled States could be arranged
thru diplomatic channels with a
most amicable and conciliatory
spirit and 1 base this assertion
first on the admirable humani-
tarian uttitdue this nation has
followed since tho beginning of the
Kuropean war without worrying
Itself as to Its causes without the
slightest trace of partiality and on
the fact that the governments of
Mexico and the I'nlted States are now

cratic principles as Woodrow Wilson

SUGGEST APRIL PRIMARIES
Would Move Prrfcrcnllul Voting
From August lo Spring.
Bpvrial to Th World..
OKLAHOMA CITY. Jan. .
Changing of the time of holding the
primary election from August to
April Is sal. I to be the principal fea-
ture of a bill that Is being prepared
for Introduction In the legislature.
Argument for the change In the
time of holding the election Is that
about the first of April farmers have
either planted the major portion of
their crops or It Is too early to put
In others and that business men
have not gone away from their
homes on vacations. Many of the
latter are generally away In August
and also at this time farmers are
busy In the fields. It Is believed thut
such a change will be liberally sup-
ported by members of the legislature.
