EARLY SETTLEMENT NOW'SEEN
At Niagara Falls It Is Said If United-

tor Conference Will Soon End.
Developments at the mediation
conference at Niagara Falls, Out.,
plainly showed that the Wilson gov
ernment is prepared even to' com
pletely abandon General Carranza
rather than to permit the mediation
conference to fail. ' ' '
Sinc.ethe mediators decided to no

The first and the most vital part of
the peace plan evolved by the media
tors has been put Into writing and
definitely adopted by all sides. This
was done at a full conference.
The first part of the plan provides
for the installation of a provisional
government in Mexico to take the
place of General Huerta. The actual
form of succession has been left open,
but It has been definitely agreed by
all sides that no candidate will be
chosen who has not been approved uy
The mediators and delegates will
take up now the matter of names.
After a candidate believed to be ac
ceptable has been agreed upon tlio
Mexican delegates will transmit his
name to Huerta and not before the
choice has been sanctioned by the pro
visional president will it be adopted
at the conference.
The fact that the new plan which
has now been definitely adopted pro

acceptable to General Huerta was
definitely confirmed by one of those
most prominently connected with the

Washington Urges Patience.
The publication by the Niagara
Falls (Ont.) mediators of the corre
spondence passing between them and
General Carranza was prevented by
the prompt action of the Washington
The South American envoys were
tired of the delay occasioned by Car
ranza taking his good time In replying
to the last note.
In order to make Clear their posi
tion they intended to give out the mes
sage which Juan Urquidl brought here
from the Constitutionalist headquar
ters in Washington and also the reply
they made to this note.
American Delegate Lehmann com
municated to the envoys the contents
of a long message received from
Washington and outlined once again
the reasons why, in the opinion of the
Washington government, more time
should be given to Carranza.
His strongest argument In favor of
delay wa3 that General Carranza'a re
ply to tho mediators' note was on Its
way to Niagara Falls.
The Carranza note will arrive prob
ably today. Then will it be possible
to know just what will be the fate of
the mediation conference.
Rumors were again current that the
proceedings would come to a suddeu
end and that both mediators and dele
gates will be far from Niagara Falls
before tne beginning of next week.
There is, however, nothing to Justify
this pessimistic view of the situation.
It is a well known fact now that
pending the arrival of a definite and
final reply from Carranza the Ameri
can delegates will subscribe to no
agreement. Should the Mexican rebel
leader maintain his defiant attitude to
such an extent as to induce the Wil
son administration to abandon him
the conference could be closed -within
twenty -four hours.
All other vital issues in the Mex
ican problem have been definitely
settled pnd have received the unof
ficial approval of President Wilson
and General Euerta.

kish regulars with machine guns and

diers of the sultan's orces, commenced
an attack oi the town of Aivalik, on
the coast of the mainland.
The besieged town is inhabited by
25,000 Greek Christians.
The city has no defenses to speak
of and its capture Is regarded as cer
tain, with the undoubted consequence
of a massacre of the Christian popula
tion. This direct act of warfare Is regard
ed as the start of a war to the death
between Greece and Turkey a war
that has been kindling for months,
fanned by petty acts of aggression on
Charges and counter charges have
passed between Athens and Constan
tinople and it has been evident to all
Europe that the smoldering fires of
religious and racial hatred soon must
break out Into fierce combat.
While no formal declaration of war
has passed this step is now regardod
as a matter of a few days, as both
countries have been preparing for hos
tilities. A war In the near east, with its at
tendant possibilities of involving Rus
sia, Germany and England, all of
whom have large political interests in
that region. Is regarded as a grave
menace to the peace of Europe.
Greece accuses Turkey of the whole
sale expulsion, with great cruelties, of
Greek Christians from the province of
Thrace, while Turkey accuses Greece
of oppressing Turkish subjects in the

President's Measure Passes the
Senate Gauntlet Safely
HOUSE ACCEPTS AMENDMENT
Verbal Clash That Develops Into a
Near Fist Battle Enlivens Closing
Hours of Debate In the Senato.
Rppeul of Panama canal tolls ex
emption for American coastwise ship
ping pu.ssed the senate by a vote of
60 to 35.
The measure went back to tlia
house, which accepted the Simmons
Norrls amendment specifically reserv
ing all rights the United States may
have under the Hay-I'auncefote treaty.
The next and final step was the signa
ture of the president.
The passage ot the bill after a bitter
struggle that lias lusted for several
months was regarded as another
victory for President Wilson.
The closing hours of the debate
were signalized by a near encounter
between Senators Vardaman and West
of Georgia and also by a sharp per
sonal colloquy between Vardaman and
his colleague, Senator John Sharp
West and Vardaman confronted
each other in a threatening attitude
and Senator Ashurst Jumped between
them with extended arms as if to pre
vent them coming together.
At the same time the presiding of
ficer, Senator Swanson, considered the
situation so menuciug that he ordered
the sergeant-at-arms to tho scene to
The trouble arose while West was
replying to Vardaman. Tho Missis
sippi senator, who has opposed the
repeal law, had just concluded a
speech In which he urralgned senators
who have aided the president in the
repeal. Ho attacked tho Carnegio
foundation for spending money to
bring about repeal.
Replying to this charge West, who
was standing near Mr. Vardanian'i
"There have been charges here con
cerning the Carnegie foundation's ex
penditure of $:!0,0U0. Who knows but
that the shipping interests have spent
$100,000 in order to secure tho defeat
of this bill?"
"Have you been offered any?" In
quired Vardaman slowly rising.
"Don't you say that to me," quickly
"We!!, you are milking an intimation
that somebody elsu has been in
fluenced," retorted Vardaman, ad
vancing wi.h clenched lists.
The senate was in great commotion.
Senator Asliurst went between Var
duinan and West. He is a powerful
man physically and he brought his
strength to keep the two men apart.
Judge Dayton Impeached.
Judge Alston G. Dayton, United
States federal Judge for the northern
district of West Virginia, was Im
peached on the Moor of the house by
Representative Neely. Twenty-seven
charges were made against the Judge
by his accusers, the last one being a
sweeping charge that Included many
"acts of personal and Judicial miscon
duct." At the same time Representative
Neely introduced a resolution calling
for an Investigation of Judge Day
ton's conduct by a subcommittee of
tho houso committee.
Prohibition Vote Put Off.
Congressmen breathed freer after
it hud been announced that a respito
for three weeks, at least, from facing
a vote on the adoption of the Hobsou
prohibition resolution had been so
cured. This resolution, under consideration
by the house rules committee on tho
question of whether a rule should be
reported bringing it to a vote, is gen
erally referred to as powder flask.
Members of congress asserted that in
many instances a vote on the bill
would mean defeat no matter how they
