No names have been agreed upon be

The progrnm of the proceedings 1
about as follows;.
Within a day or two the Mexican plan
and 'the American plan will have been
dovetailed Into one and a full confer

Final approval It not' expected Inw

as the mediators then will ask tha
American delegates to begin to ascen

This may proceed through the Washing

delegates choose. The mediators will
take a brief recess in the meantime.
Should there be any new suggestion
from, thp constitutionalist, .the United

arrive at a compromise with them.

It.slsient on their original term decla
ration of an armistice nnd broadening1
the discussion from international to
internal question. The constitutional
ist aro willing to meet the -mediators on
a satisfactory basis as to the latter point
Aut they are absolutely determined
against declaring any armistice.
H was announced by the mediating
plenipotentiaries last night that they
would make public today their corres
pondence with the constitutionalist,
but word was received today through
the American delegate that General
Carranza's answer to their latet note,
already had been dispatched to Wash
ington and would be forwarded by
Raphael 'iubaran. It was decided, there
fore, to withhold publication for tho
AVIII Insist nn Armistice.
No answer from the corititutlonJit
whirl, doe not declare for an Immedlat-j
armistice will permit them to enter tho
negotiation. The mediators have taken
tv rirm stand on this point
A factor In the contitutlonalIt view
Is that all the military chiefs and leaders
over a year ago signed a pact known a
the plan of Guadalupe, which provide
specifically that the constitutionalists
ha Mexico city by
i presidency. To effect a change in that
plan harmoniously another conference ot
chiefs might be necessary and this could
not be had, the constitutionalist ay.
unlets there waa framed ln advance a
peace plan likely to be satisfactory to all.
They think changes In tha plan ot
Guadalupe could be made and tha revo
lution settled by diplomatic means, but
they are unwilling to run the risk ot an
armistice without having first 44cusd
the peace proposal among themse)ve.
