El Uni versal, the most prominent newspaper in Mexico, prints today statements from twenty-three prominent civilians of Mexico advocating severance by Mexico of relations with Germany and asserting that Mexico's place in the war is on the side of the entente al lies. The headlines of the article in which the statements are incorporated say it is to the interest of Mexico to sever relations with Germany and that the Latin-American ideals of Mexico must incline her to the side of the allies rather than toward ideals of pan-Germanism, absorption and militarism as expressed by Germany. The statements assert that German intribues in Mexico offer ample reas ons for severing diplomatic relations, adding that Germany i3 endeavor ing to provoke trouble betewen Mexico and the United States. It is asserted that Germany cannot de ceive Mexico by the prospect of re covering portions of Texas, New Mexi co and Arizona, lost in 1848. Mexico, others say, cannot lend her- the industries of the country and that the coal industry itself is paralyzed by the failure of transportation. There are enouch coal cars in th country but not enough are delivered to the mines and these cars are not moved to the point of consumption with the greatest expedition, nor are they promptly discharged." In view of these ' conditions, the commission recommends: "First That the production and distribution of coal and coke be con ducted through a pool in the hands of the government agency; that the pro ducers of various grades of fuel be paid their full cost of production plus a uniform profit per ton (with due allowance for quality of product and efliciency of service), and, Transportation Also. "Second That the 'transportation agencies of the United States, both rail and water, be similarly pooled and operated on government account, under the direction of the president, and that all such means of transpor tation be operated as a unit, the own ing corporations being paid a just and fair compensation which would cover normal net profit, upkeep and betterments." These recommendations are ap proved by Commissioners Davies, Col ver and Fort- Chairman Harris dis sents on the plan for transportation pool, except as a last resort, and sug- ees. The commission will continue its in vestigation. m: ati x JESS I'M hiiic; VIHI(i SIIKKT MKT A I, WOHK BELGIANS EXPRESS THEIR GRATITUDE Head of Mission to America Pays inouie 10 iioover ana ills Work.
