Self as Mediators
Occupy Anxious Seat
NIAGARA FA1.LJ3, Ontario, June 2S.
Somo of 'the principals to the mediation
conference here began to' losp hope last
night that General Carranza ever would
permit his representatives to participate
in the proposed informal conference with
the Huerta delegates for tho solution of
Mexico's Internal problems.
No word came to any of the mediators
as to Carranza's intentions and skepticism
began to manifest itself, especially when
news dispatches from Monterey showed
that not only was telegraphic communi
cation with the Constitutionalist chief In,
excellent condition, but that he had spent.
the day in amusements, Ignoring 'the
anxiety of the mediators and delegates
for some definite word of his purposes.
The impression hero is that while the
constitutionalist representatives in Wash
ington with whom the mediators are in
formally communicating say they are de-
ltroua of bringing about the meeting,
General carranza, uiinxs otherwise aa
the military success of his troops prob
ably will increase his self-confidence and
independence. The mediation colony. Is
disposed to wait until Monday for-sbmo
definite word, but then there may be.

CHICAGO, June ." Spooning Is a
crime against Womanhood," John J. Alex

who love to 'spoon' that It is the most

"Make tho boys clean-minded and

Miss Margaret Slattery of Boston made
similar talk at the- older boys' confer

"WASHINGTON, June SS. - Alfredo
DreccJn, private secnetary of General
Carranza, leader of the revolutionist
forces in Mexico, Issued a statement here
tonight charging that General Felipe
Angeles had stirred up the recent con
tention between Carranza nnd General
Villa and that Angeles was tn reality an
agent of General Huerta.
BreccuVs statement, Issued after a long
conference with Luis Cabrera, one of
General Carranza's representatives here,
who Is earnestly working for participa
tion of the constitutionalists In an In
formal peace conference with delegates
to the Niagara Falls mediation, admits
a breach , In the constitutionalist ranks
thai prooably cannot be healed unless'
mediation should succeed.
The Breeeda etatement in full follows;t
"public opinion in the United States
has boen greatly misled In the. matter oft
the attitude of Gene.rf vlTla towards
Mr. Carranza ajadnsifuf ntly I find it
necessary In vl'fiw acknowledge and dl

to Issue a statement In order to make
known tho real situation of, the conatttu
"The troubles between Villa and Car
ranza have not all the Importance that
has been supposed and can be composed
when tho real causes of the break be
come known. Villa, who had boen tho
leader showing the most spirit and vln
dlctlvencss In the. war against Huerta,
has appeared always In an entirely
subordinate character to Carranza and en
tirely submissive to Carranza In spite of
pe.rsistent attempts made to make him
appear as holding personal, ambitions.
Interference, of Angeles. '
"Villa always'had continued belne lov.il
towards Carranzaji and had Jl no'tJeeni
iar, me imericrcnce or cupe Angeles,
who is the chief author of the happen
ings occurring lately, there never would
have been any differences. Whenever the
Insubordination of Villa Is spoken of we
ought to say the Insubordination of
"Genoral Angeles was a commander In
the federal army, ho waa sent on a ml?
sion to Europe by Huerta. He stayed
there Until October, 1913. He tlien asked
to Join the ranks and the colors of tho
constitutionalist army. Angeles was ac
cepted. He received money for his family
and for Ms trip. He was welcomed by
General Carranza, who. In view of
Angeles being a technical military man.
appointed nim sub-secretary of his war
department. His nomination was well ac
cepted by the revolutionary leaders as
they considered him entlrly educated in
politics under the federal Ideaji. As a
matter of fact, he always tried to keep
apart from General Carranza nnd the
revolutionary leaders. .
Sent to lielp Villa.
"The trip of Carranza from Sonora to
Chihuahua coincided with the beginning
of the military activities against Torrcon
and then yielding to the wishes of Villa,
Angeles was sent from Sonora to help
Villa in the Investment of Torrcon.
"Since tho arrival of Angeles near Villa,
a change in tho attitude of the latter
was felt, nearly all the acts of Villa
meaning disagreement wjth' Carranza,
such as the imprisonment and attemptud
shooting of General Chao, which were
due to tho advice of Angeles. On June
12, Carranza asked Villa to send some re
inforcements to Natera, vyho- was at the
time Investing 2acatecaa." Villa, actlne
under tho advice of Angeles, refused to
send reinforcements unless 'he could take
charge of tho assault, doing all with his
own forces. Carranza Insisted. Villa re
fused again and In a fit of. anger tendered
his resignation as military commander of
the northern division. Carranza found
himself obliged to accept the resignation,
but wishing to follow democratic pro
ceedings, he convoked the officials, who
were under the order of Vil(a that they
could choose by themselves their active
leader. But officials influenced by
AngeTes, refused to appoint a substitute
and agreed to support Villa as their leader
and they were thus In- an attitude of
disobedience towards Carranza.

causes of the attitude of Villa and con-
