OMAHA, AYEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 20, TWELVE PAGES. SINGLE COPY TWO CENTS. OFFICIALS FEELING ENCOURAGED BY ADTOROMLIND Rejection of the Proposal Submitted to Huerta in a Disappointment at Washington. H0PE,H0WEVER,N0T ABANDONED Discussion of Alternative Measures is Now Held in Abeyance. ANOTHER MEETING EXPECTED Mexican President Thought to Be in Something of Reoeptive Mood. MAY REMOVE EMBARGO ON ARMS Ten p Feel Ins: in Department Cir cles nnd a Illapoaltlon to Go Farther Into the Mexican Qneatlon. WASHINGTON, Aug. 19. Whlla Hu crta's rejection of the American proposal was a disappointment, officials were en couraged by advices from Llnd that he was conferring further with Huerta on the suggestion. Discussion of alternative measures was held in abeyance. The proposal to grant exportatlons of arms to tho constitutionalists on an equality with Huerta cameto the front again. Such was the situation following a series of tclegramB from the embassy announcing the rejection of the Acmerl can proposal and then an invitation from Huerta, for further conferenca with Llnd. The message from Und described as very cordial his conference with Hdsrta 'ftt the tatter's suggestion. Include 1 in tho samo message, but under date of August 16, was the first part of tha text of the note which constitutes the Huorta reply to the American .proposal. Its pre-, Uminary sections gave no hint of ulti mate rejection, but were phrased in cour teous terms. It set forth historically the establishing of unofficial relations, conversations with Foreign Minister Gam boa and the first conference between Huerta and Llnd. In this note Huerta referred to Llnd as a well Informed man; animated by slncerest motives to bring about a satisfactory solution of the unfortunlty tension existing between thewo nations. The communications after narrating the developments that led up to the presenta tion of tho American note ends abruptly with tho notation that the remainder would bo forwarded laer. There was a tense feeling In official circles and a disposition to Inquire fur ther Into the origin of the statement by the minister of the interior. Senor TJrrutla, demanding recognition' for tlfe 3Iu6rta government under penalty of severing relations between tho two coun tries. president Wilson, though at first op posed to the removal of the embargo on arms, was said today to be open minded. A number of senators have ln , formed him, however, that to remove the embargo was the only alternative through which the overthrow of Huerta could be accomplished without direct In terference, of the United States. llryan Hears from. Mexico. Charge O'Shaughnessy cabled Becetary Bryan from Mexico City today that Presi dent Huerta, through Foreign Minister Glmboa, emphatically denied there was "any foundation whatever" for the state ment that Huerta had Issued an ulti matum to the United States demanding recognition, with the alternative of hand ing Mr. O'Shaughnessy his passports. A dispatch from John Llnd Informed President Wilson and Secretary Bryan that he had been In conference with Pro visional President Huerta at an early hour today. He characterized his recep tion and conference with Huerta as cor dial. Last night's dispatches, attributing the announcement by Minister Urrutla of an ultimatum by Huorta, stirred offllcal cir cles here deeply. Secretary Bryan, an early riser, read the morning papers and hurried down to his office, where he found the reassuring cable . from Charge O'Shaughnessy and then went to the White House to confer with' President Wilson. While there the message came from Llnd telling of the conference with Huerta. Members of the senate foreign relations (Continued on Page Two.) The Weather Forecast till 7 p. m.

Owing to Moorhead's redisricting of tho etty many voters experienced diffi culty In locating the poling place In their precinct. The polling places arc widely scattered and the new boundaries ot districts have caused much confusion. Hindrance to Votem. . Workers at the polls report that Com missioner Moorhead's inspectors are put ting every obstacle possible in the way of voters, enforcing all the restrictions possible. Several Instances 'were redted where Mr. Moorhead's Inspector's refused to permit voters to declare their prefer ence on-the gas question where the copy ist had made a mistake In one letter In the voter's name. Some ot theso were compelled to visit the court house to get a certificate before they were permitted to vote. Under the new, election commissioner. paw the chalUwv,pfBs,; voter as'UsedMn yesterdays ejection is .a icarxui- ana, wonderful thing. Any voter, whe Is re ported as "unlawfully registered" Is liable to chalenge by the election commissioner or any of his deputies. Then after going through a prescribed course ot action the challenged elector can vote anyway. Many Challenged. Quite a number of voters were chal lenged before they could vote at yester day's election, either by the election com missioner or his Inspectors, The exped ience of one naturalized citizen who re ceived notice that he wax challenged because he was "under age" Is typical of them all. Since he did not have a copy of the election commissioner law he came to the office of the commissioner in the court house tor Information. Ho told one of the employes there that ho was natur alized In Duglas county; that his papers showed his age an 23: that he had voted at other elections and would like to do so now. After having been kept standing about for- fifteen or twenty minutes . while art Investigation of his case proceeded his predicament wan referred to the election commissioner, and after another wait of about the same length of time, he was In formed that he was all right and that all ho had to do was to go and sign an af fidavit that n.o was of age and find two other regularly registered voters who would sign the affidavits. After 1olng this, upon returning to his precinct he was allowed to vote. "It takes the patience ot Job, the en durance of a department sto;e clerk and the obstinacy of a mule to vote these days." he said after the first half ot en. deavor, "but I expect to succeed," Every challenged voter can cast a bal lot by presenting evidence that he Is legally registered In the form of affi davits of himself and two other registered voter.

GET MUCH HIGHER FIGURE Fifty Per Cent More Will Be Pnld than Formerly for Crop ot Three-Fourtha Orchards of Nebraska. ""Frtmr a Staff "Correspondent.)' ' LINCOLN, Aug. U.-Opeclal.) Ne braska apples hava once more demon strated their ability td cope successfully with those of other states. Secretary Marshall of the Southeastern Nebraska Fruit Growers' association has olosed a contract wth a Chicago nrm which will take ail of tho apples grown by members of the association this year. According to Secretary Marshall, this will be about three-fourths of the entire apple' crop and wliu include the best or chards of the state. The price to bo re ceived will be about W per cent higher than any previous year and the apple will be sent to the Now York and Pitts burgh markets. Mr. Williams, who made the deal for the Chicago firm, says that Nebraska apples will keep later In the spring than any other apples ot a like kind grown In the United States. All along tho Mis souri river on tho Nebraska aide tho aoll seems to be peculiarly adapted to raising an apple which In flavor And keeping ability exceeds that ot tlio products ot any other state. It Is for this reason, according to Mr. Williams, that tho Nebraska apples are In such demand and tho reason that eastern firms are willing to pay tho high price for the fruit. He has been buying ap ples for fifteen years and thinks that Nebraska stands far In the lead as a producer of apples. Apple orchards have not been hurt by the extreme hot weather, according to Mr. Marshall, where- they have been cul tivated and sprayed. Orchards which havo been allowed to go through tho season with little or no card will not develop much of n crop; the apples already are drying up nnd fklllng from the trees. In the orchards wh'lch havo been cultivated the ground seems to have retained tho moisture bet ter and the fruit on tho trees which hQVe been sprayed Is as perfect as In a rea son where the rain has been plentiful. Another strange condition which exists In the face of the dry weather li that fruit trees have put out a new growth running from eight to fourteen Inches more than In any previous year.
