After the three months following

The io eminent of Mexico has
again been warned by the an tlim it !
at Washington that It must "go

months 'igeiit. William O. Jenkins who has
been arrested a second time chaiged
with connivance lit Ills own abduc-
tion by bandits.
The warning states that any f Hi-
ther moliMtation of the American
consular agent at Puehla would "ser-
iously affect the relations between
the i'nlteil States and Mexico fin
which the Unlet anient of Mexico
must assume sole responsibility.
Coupled with the warning was a

While the supieme court at Wash-

nf last week nil the constitutionali-
ty of tlie wai-tlme prohibition act
wind went out from the White House
that President Wilson would not re-
scind the Miy" net until pence for-
mally had been declared.
This is expected to set at rest the
ever recurring rumors that the "dry"
ban would bo lifted by the PrPsldont
Ii respective of enily ratification of
tho treaty of Versailles. Failure of
tho Senate to act on the treaty at the
extraordinary session Is regnrdml by

Should such prove tho case tho
only possibility of a "wet" Christ-
mas would bo for the Supreme Court
to declare tho war-time act unconsti-
tutional. A decision of the matter is not ex-
pected bofnic Deo. S when the court
will reconvene after recess.
There is much speculation In tho
National Capital over possible results
at home and abroad that are to fol-
low tot initiation of tho special ses-
sion of Congiess without Senate rat-
ification ot the peace treaty.
The thoughts ot the treaty's Sen-

ing some compromise for a ratifica-

and to that end stops are understood
to have been taken to ask President
Wilson to ascertain from the otlier
