WILSON TO LINE
Washington Guesses Thai Will
Be His Policy
MEXICO CLIMAX IS AT HAND
Huerta' Addren to Diplomat In Mex
ico City Considered by Administra
tion ai Answer to Wilson' Note.
The time is near for the Washlngtoi
administration to act detinitely in re
gard to Mexico. Developments have
now reached the stage where ob
servers here expect Washington to
make a move before Wednesday.
That the administration will take up
the cause or the Constitutionalist lead
er, Carranza, as against the govern
ment of Provisional President Huerta
Is indicated. It is believed the presi
dent as a first step will order the Im
mediate removal of the embargo on
arms and ammunition along the
border line. Carranza and his rebels
In northern Mexico will thus be able
to obtain all the munitions of war
needed to wage more actively his war
against the dictator In Mexico City.
The moral support thus accorded by
the United States will strengthen the
rebel cause, it Is expected.
Kvents are forcing the administra
tion to this course as the only alter
native to Intervention by United
Plates troooB. Word reached here
through unofficial sources that Presi
dent Huerta had Issued a formal Ltate
Rient to the diplomats in Mexico City
that the recent elections would be de
clared null on account of too few pre
cincts having participated in the
voting and that his program will be
to call new elections and in the mean
time continue his own efforts toward
the pacification of the country.
The Impression in Washington Is
that this statement by Huerta consti
tutes his answer to the demands of
the Unted States and that this gov
ernment is now face to face with the
necessity of deciding upon an Immedi
ate course of action.
President Wilson never will recog
nize Huerta and will continue to In
sist that he must ga.
The course that is uppermost In the
mind of the administration now is the
lifting of the embargo on arms and
other munitions of war along the

There was little trouble during the

The settlement of the strike meant

Front Laced Corset
The innovation of a new gown must, of necessity, be accompanied by a
properly designed corset, so that the intention of the Modiste may be car
ried out when the gown is draped on the figure. The corset of yesterday
may be obsolete today.
Change in corset design involves a considerable expenditure and, as a
rule, manufacturers are oft times lax in making radical changes in design.
Of all the lines we examined we found Frolaset, the perfect front-laced
corset, to meet entirely with our satisfaction.
We can obtain required results with the new models.
The straight hip effect, the smooth back, the uncorseted effect where
desired, the proper care of the abdomen, the scientific construction to allow
freedom at the diaphragm, the lack of interference with the freedom of the
body, the undefinable something termed poise, the queenly bearing of the
matron, the vivacity of the maid, are all made possible by the wearing of a
properly fitted Front Laced Frolaset.
May we have the pleasure of a trial fitting? There are no obligations.
Models at $3.60, $5.00, $6.60 and $8.00.
Superb Suit Selection
$16.00, $16.60, $18.60 and $20.00.
A matchless array of upward of 160 Tailored Suits at those four prices.
Each individual suit selected because of its dis inctive character. And
about each suit some distinctive character. And about each suit some dis
tinctive touch that compelled our preference over the hundreds of other
suits shown us. It's the cut of a coat, the drape of a skirt or a particularly
pleasing fabric or an orignal design or some particular feature that lends
striking individuality to each suit. And then we buy only one of a style.
And we're no more exacting in the seleciion of a $40 suit than of a $20 suit.
