EAGLE PASS, Tex.. July 24.-Officlal
announcement was made today at consti
tutionalist headquarters In riodras Nc
gras of the capture of Torrcon, Mexico,
by constitutionalists. Fifteen hundred
prisoners, twenty cannon and large sup
plies of ammunition fell Into their hands,
the constitutionalists claim.
Details of the battle must be carried
nearly 100 miles ,by courier before they
reach telegraph wires. Constitutionalists
expect more news soon.
Torreon Is in the state of Coahuila, 00
miles south of the border and on the
western edge of the mllltan' activities
ovtr which Governor Carranza, leader of
the constitutionalists, has assumed per
sonal charge. It is one of a chain of
six cities covering a rough semicircle 500
or 100 miles long:, extending eastward
from Torreon and curving northward to
I-aredo, Tex, In which Governor Car
lanita claims to have strong federal forces
either checkmated or bottled up.
His announced plan last week was to
auacti xorreun ursi. iub iuhuwcib Claim
ing he had about 8,000 men, against about
3,000 federals In Torreon garrison. The
other principal cities which the- Carranza
forces claim to bo watching are Mon

Mediation Nat Acceptable.
WASHINGTON, July 24. "Discussion of
tho Mexican situation today turned
toward proposals that the United States
act as a medfator whllo elections are
held and a constitutional government es
tablished. Although such suggestions have at
various times', been made to President
VVy'son' Secretary Bryan arid members
oli "congress by persons Itvthls country
and Mexico, the proposition has "never
reached the stage of serious consideration
because of the insistent attitude of the
constitutionalists, that they would not
entertain mediation under any circum
stances. ."Who will guaranteo tho honesty of an
election? Tle only guarantee we can
have is to take possession of the govern
ment by arms, put In a provisional
president and hold elections when tho
'country Is pacified. Elections with most
of the country up in arms would be 1m
poaslble." This was the answer of the constitu
tionalists here today to reports that medi
ation was about to be undertaken through
the office of tho United States. Tho
constitutionalists profess to see In such
a proposal an effort on the part of the
Huerta government to secure a suspen
sion of hostilities during which It would
take retaliatory measures to suppress the
constitutionalists' cause. The constitu
tionalists point out that the same kind of
proposals were repeatedly made In the
declining days of the Diaz administration..
No Invitation to Mediate.
"I have had many letters," said Sena
tor Bacon as he left the White House,
' "and there has been much talk among
senators about tho possibility of media
tion, but wo recogulzo that It all depends
on tho attitude of factions in Mexico.
- Wo would have to be Invited to mediate;
we could not exercise any authority. I
don't know how practicable it would be.
Perhaps tho best thing would be It both
bides could get together without media
tion by anyone else and name a' pro
visional president, who would be satis
factory to both and bold an election.
But the chief point about all this discus
sion Is that it shows how anxious the
American people are for a peaceful solu
tion of the trouble In Mexico and that we
are not thinking of anything like inter
vention. The value of these suggestions
is that we test out public opinion both in
this country and In Mexico."
Senator Bacon Bald that so far as he
knew no formal recommendation for
mediation was being considered by tho
president and that the matter had ouly
reached the stage of discussion.
A number of senators In discussing the
Mexican situation with President Wilson
today learned that he was so hopeful
that the senate would refrain from do
bate at this time, or at any rato until
after Ambassador Wilson returned and
a definite policy was formulated. It was
said the president pointed out that ex
pressions by senators might arouse bad.

mutinous convicts a chance for nor.
riotous demonstrations. Tho blaze started
In tho clothing shop and the prison fire,
brigade extinguished it, after a hard
fight, without outside aid. '
It was the second flro In tho prison
buildings this week, although the guards
had been doubled since $150,000 worth of
property was burned up there two dnya
ngo. Although It Is generally, believed
that the fires were started by ' convicts,
the warden has been unable to place thb
blame. The men at work In the building
were marched out In good order and the
blaze was extinguished whllo a chorus
of yells enmo from prisoners locked In
tl clr cells.
Warden Clancy attributes tho recent
disturbances among tho convicts to an
order for the transfer of some of them
to the state prison at Auburn. Most ot
the prisoner at Sing Sing come from
New York City and object to being sent
up state, where their friends will find
It difficult to visit them. It was this
element that led the mutiny yesterday,
which at first promised to develop Into
an organized attempt nt prison delivery.
On account of tho disturbances tho
warden decided today to rid the prison
of tho most disorderly element. Two
hundred ot the worst offenders, all second-term
men, were kept In their cells
today and tomorrow sixty of them wilt

Koch andPpttor, the only Oinah team

of opinion arose betwoen Potter and tho
South Dakotans. Branson served to Pot

returned the servo successfully, but
Branson made no effort to strike back.
Guy Beckett, the referee, rr.alntalned
that the ball was good, but aa Ur.ioson

Potter deduced Branson old not think

Branson and Young after the dlsputo

Koch and Potter played excellunt ten
