UNITED STATES WILL
NOT MAKE CHANGE IN
ITS MEXICAN POLICY
Secretary Bryan Says No Permits for
Shipments of Arms Will Be Is
sued to Any Faction.
AMBASSADOR WILSON ARRIVES
He Will Confer with the President
Monday Morning.

Says Few Americans Know Anything
About Situation.
HE CRITICIZES HIS SUPERIORS
Sending Agents to Investlirnte Con

Discourteous Itesxrets In

WASHINGTON, July 26. Secretary
Brj'an told tho foreign relations com
mittee today the administration would
make no Immediate change In enforcing
the neutrality law against shipments ot
arms to Mexico. This Indicates that
President Wilson will continue to refuse
to issue export permits to both tho Huerta
and constitutionalist factions.
Ambassador Wilson, on his arrival for
conferences on the Mexican situation
with Secretary Wilson and Secretary
Bryan, announced he had prepared a
memorandum suggesting what policy the
American ' government should pursue.
While declining to divulge Its nature
until he had submitted his views to the
president and Mr. Bryan, the ambassador
characterized ns Impracticable proposals
for mediation by an American commls-'
si on.
Ambassador Wilson said he expected to
return to Mexico City by the steamer
nlllnir nxt Thursdav from New York.
As to his conferences here, he under
stood, he added that he merely was to
transmit Information on the subject and
resented the suggestion frequently maao
that he would be called to account for
his personal acts!
"i recoenlze that the president and
secretary have a right, however,"' he said,
"to question me about anything."
Criticism ot Superiors.
The ambassador described his treat
ment by President Wilson and Secretary
Bryan hitherto courteous In every re
spect except one the sending of separate
agents to Investigate cbndltlons In
Mexico. He criticised both -William Halo
and Reginald DeValle jwhom .he declared
were -.acting for the administration.
'"l"do3?t 'hlnk Mr".' DaTailexihoutd' have
been, given ItaTStato department code'
said the ambassador. "I know ho had it,
because he went to the secretary of our
legation in Havana, to get help in de
ciphering It, Indeed, r believe the senate
committee might investigate the.dletribu
tlon ,of State department code to private
individuals.
The, ambassador said he had every dis
position to carry out the wishes of the
president and Secretary Bryan. Mediation,
however, he looked on ,as impossible be
cause the Mexican federal government
would not entertain such a suggestion.
"I regard mediation," he added, "as
venturing on dangerous seas.'
Criticises Hadero Family.
Mr. Wilson was vehement in his criti
cism ,of the constitutionalists and the
Madero family.
"Tho Madero family,", asserted the
ambassador, "have maintained a raid
bureau In Washington to poison the pub
lic mind. As to the rebel's there really
are none' except In Sonora, where there
Is an organized movement. Elsewhere
they are bandits."
Tho ambassador was asked about Coa
hulla, where Governor Carranza Is In
charge of the constitutionalist cause.
"There are bandits In Coahulla, too,"
be answered. "I don't mean to say that
Carranza Is a bandit, but In order to
keep his men together ho Jias to allow
them to loot and they, therefore, become
bandits."
Mr. Wilson suggested that hardly any
one in Washington really understood the
Mexican situation and the characteristics
ef Latin peoples.
"Some of the proposals I have heard,"
he remarked, "sound like tho drlbblings
of mere children. For Instance the pro
posal to have powers from Central and
South American act with us In mediating
Civet trouble In Mexico. Why, thatwould
be an overthrow ot the principles of the
Monroe doctrine and tho Mexicans would
resent Interference. I know this pro
posal was onco made by John Barrett,
director general pf the Pan-American
union. Mr. Barrett und I are personal
friends and I have great respect for him,

Mr. Schneider had also been active in

nation. A staunch republican, he served
his party as national committeeman from

the inner councils of the committee. Sa
gacious, far-seeing and conservative, his
Judgment was always sought by the lead
ers as wise and safe.
Time was In this state when "R, B.,"
as he was called by those who knew him
best, was a power to be reckoned with.
Through him, Fremont long he:d a con
spicuous place on the polictlcal map ot
Nebraska. He was chairman of tho re- j
publican state committee In 180S and 1899,
when Nebraska was "redeemed" from I

money and his energy and his time In
Its development. Ho was an extensive
traveler and had a habit of coming back
to his own Fremont and Nebraska, for It
was all his home. Invariably better
pleased with his city and state than ever.
He was as widely known In Omaha as
any of Omaha's own leaders In com
mercial affairs, and that went for the
entire state, almost. He has Investments
In the metropolis and spent a good deal
of time here, though he was always loyal
fto Fremont as his first love.
Mr. Schneider Is survived by his widow

"It was generally supposed that Mr.
Burt was a" robust man. ..f exce.lent
health, for he appeared so, but as a mat
ter of fact, he had been In poor condi
tion for some years, His kidneys were
badly , affected."
Then laughingly Mr. Schneider, sold:.
"Now, I -am as sound -a.-a- -dollar. I
expect to live for many ' years yet."
Mr. Schneider's last public appearance
in Omaha was at -the republican get-together
dinner tendered ,Vlca . President

Traffic North of
Atlantic May Be
Suspended Soon
ATLANTIC, la., July 26. (Special Tele
gram.) Suspension ot operation of th
north end of tho Atlantic Northern and
Southern railroad, seventeen miles In
length, oil August 9 virtually became as
sured today when a mass meeting of 201
property owners failed to make arrange,
ments for Its continuance.
A resolution to appoint a committee to
confer with the first mortgage bondhold
ers who purchased the- north end at a
receiver's sale, concerning operation of
the line was carried, but after Mayor H.
Johnson of Elkhorn, chairman of tha
meeting, had vainly tried to secure the
nomination ot a committee and those
whose names were suggested had refused
to act a motion to adjourn was carried,
"It means the. certain suspension of
traffic on the north end of the road,"
said Hans S. Rattenborg. former presi
dent ot the Atlantic Northern and South
ern road Jind jjqj pf the stockholders.
'I bellevs.hower, the line will not be
permanently abandoned"
"It will' not 4-; possible now," said
Vlggo Lyngby of Council Bluffs, attorney
tor the, bondholders' '.'to make arrange
ments to continue operation of the line
until after August 9."
On August 9 the road will bo turned
oyer to the bondholders, It was estimated
that it would have been necessary to
have raised 830,000 to have prevented sus
pension of traffic. This sum would have
been used to pay interest, the purchase

Seven Lees
Want Big Estate
CHICAGO, July 26. Seventeen Lees who
believe .they may prove relationship" to
William Henry Lee, the wealthy pub
lisher who died recently leaving an es
tate valued at $200,000, have communi
cated with tho public administrator, who
for several weeks has been searching for
relatives at the decendent.
Thus far none has been able to prove
relationship. On his deathbed he made
frantic attempts to talk, but was unable
to' do so because his (ongua'was para
lyzed. Under the law the estate will revort to
the state unless some relative appears to
claim It within twenty years.
That William Henry Lee had negro
blood In his veins and that this ex
plains the mystery surrounding his early
life was the opinion expressed today by
Frederick C. Laird ot Spokane, Wash.,
former business partner of Lee, here
today,
"I am sure Lee -was tart negro," said
Laird. "I never talked with him about
It, but his features and manner of speech
showed It. He told me at one time that
he Dad no living relatives.
"The ambition ot his life was to com
plete the dictionary on which ho was
working when he was stricken with
paralysis last June,"

PEKING, July 24 The refusal of Rear
Admiral 'Reginald F. Nlchotson, commander-in-chief
of tho American AnloAi
fleet to send American marines ta
KU Ling, Is generally criticised in rton
miiltary circles here, although tho Gor
man and British admirals aro reported to
agree with Admiral Nicholson.
Ah Amorlcan, guard was at first agreed.
on by the British, German and American
legations owing to Chinese suspicions as
to the dlstlnterestedness of tho other
nationalities'.
Ku-Llng is a high mountain town near
Ktu-Klang, where thousands ot foreign
ers, mostly British nnd American women
and children take refugo from tho sum
mer heat and diseases ot central China.
The missionaries, business men and
foreign consuls argue that It Is better to
protect the foreigners In one sate place
than to permit them to disperse, when
protection would bo more difficult.
It Is pointed out that at Shnnghal the
volunteers and marines kept the armed
rebels out ot tho concessions without
fighting.
The only danger at Ku-Llng arises"
seemingly, from outlaws and dispersed
soldiers attempting to loot. The Amer
ican admiral has ottered to escort tho
foreigners to tha river, but refuses to
detach a small guard. The same question-
arose during former troubles.
Southerners Lone Interest.
FU CHOW, China, July 20.-The defeat
of the southern revolutionary troops at
Shanghai .seems to havo dampened the
ardor ot the people of the province of
Fo-Klen, who sympathise strongly with
the rebel movement, but now seem In
clined to remain passive unless the south
erners achieve an Important military suo
cess. War Is generally deprecated, but there
Is a small minority of tha more youthful
and hot headed element, which clamors
for redress of its grievance.
Many of the Christian missionaries have
been recalled from tho interior districts
owing to the possibility ot outbreaks.

Method
"With the difference all la
favor ot the buyer."
That 1b the way one large
nnd immensely successful mer
chant headlines a special sale
in a well-known city.
Then he goes on to say that
having made an exceptionally
large and advantageous purchase
of goods he Is going to swing the
difference the customer's way, for
he wants to prove to the public
that he Is building in a way that
benefits his patrons as well as
himself.
In other words, on such an
occasion he gives more than
good measure.
But that isn't such an un
usual thing to do after all.
Right here in our own com
munity there are merchants who
right along give their buying pub
lic tho best of a good bit of mer
chandising, who make the "differ
ence In favor of the buyer."
You will find this constantly
exemplified in the columns of
THE BEE.
It is a fine policy; it pays
pays the customer and pays
me uiurcuuiu.
