All Depend Upon
By Associated Press
Washington, D. C., May 29. —Plans
for Mexico's pacification practically
agreed upon at the Niagara conference
were up for discussion to-day in the
Cabinet. With assurances that the
International phase of the equation
promised a. satisfactory solution, in
terest grew to-day in the attitude that
t'crranza might take. It was reported
that he had sent his representatives
here an announcement of his position
toward the work of the Niagara con
ference. Tho Constitutionalist agents,
however, declined to discuss it.
Further information on the reported
landing of war cargoes at Puerto Mex
ico by the Hamburg-American steam-
Bavaria and Ypiranga was being
from Rear Admiral Badger.
TDoubt over whether the steamers
actually had delivered ammunition for
Huerta was cast by a statement from
the Navy Department that reports ot
the landings had not been verified.
The affair appeared to cause little un
easiness and in some quarters it was
Jndicated that the incident more or
.less was to be regarded as closed,
ilespite orders to Admiral Badger to
Continue his investigation.
Events at Niagara Falls were ex
pected to move swiftly in the next few
days. If Huerta and President Wil-
Fon approve of the cardinal issues,
then the mediators and the two mis
sions will take up secondary problems
for determination. Once that is
reached, a protocol will be signed ana
the mediators will finish the details of
their task, working with the admin
istration officials of the two govern
ments. Probably responsibility for
dealing with tho Constitutionalists will
devolve upon the United States. The
outcome of that could not be foreseen.

WILSON TURNS DOWN
PLEAS OF BUSINESS
[Continued From First Page]
eration to the. men who meet the
President Wilson took*sharp issue
with three of the largest manufactur
ing associations in tho world who
asked him to drop part of his anti
trust program that business may get
its breath. He declined to make any
change in his plans and told the man
ufacturers who waited upon him that
he believed it to be to the best in
terests of business to complete the
legislation regarded by him and his
party ns necessary and then allow the
rest to come.
The business men were willing to
have the bill creating an interstate
trade commission passed, but wanted
to wait until after that commission
could recommend a new set of anti
trust laws that would properly
strengthen the Sherman law before
new trust laws were passed. The
President made it plain to his visitors
that in his opinion if business men
continued- to oppose the "moderate
amendment" proposed, a new and
drastic anti-trust law would result,
fathered by the radical element In the
United States. He fold his callers that
the business depression is world-wide,
but he feels that better times are
ahead. He regards the depression as
more or less physiological—a "fixed
state of mind," he expressed It—and
he was convinced that great prosperity
is close at hand.
Denies Workers Aro Idlo
The President contradicted the ar
gument of the business men that thou
sands of American workingmen were
out of employment and that business
generally was at a standstill, because
Investors generally were fearful or
risking their money In enterprises that
might be stopped by drastic legis
lation. In his opinion, there is no
material condition or substantial rea
son why business should not be at the
present moment in a most prosperous
and expanding condition.
The business men wonder when they
will be allowed to proceed in their
ordinary pursuits by the adminis
tration. Organized labor, they say,
has received what it demanded; the
President has agreed to a compromise
as to the exemption of labor from the
provisions of the proposed anti-trust
legislation, but when they call upon
the Executive they are told bluntly
Doubts Arise as to Murder
of Yardmaster C. V. Hawse
Special to The Telegraph
Hagorstown, Md., May 29.—Serious
3Hi ;o spuiui am u| uasijn eAuii sjqnop
officers and many residents of Bruns
wick; whether Clyde V. Hawse, yard
master for the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad at that place, formerly of
Harrisburg, was murdered, according
to the verdict returned by the jury.
It will be recalled that Hawse's body
was found in a culvert along the rail
road at Brunswick late Saturday night.
It was supposed that he" had been I
killed and his body thrown into tlio I
culvert. What led many persons to
believe that Hawse had been mur
dered was the fact that he was report
ed to have had a roll of money when
he attended the carnival outside of
Brunswick and only 15 cents was
found In Ills pockets. This is denied
by Mrs. Mawse, who says lie had turn

he only kept $, r > of the money. Hawse's
watch was not taken and was still
running when his body was found.
Several stick pins, emblem pins and
rings were still on the body.
