the Colombian treaty wan considered to
day by the committee, without action,
however, as Chairman Stone was unable
to marshal a quorum. Colonel Roosc
vtlt wrote Chairman Stone ho wanted
to tell why he opposed paying $25,000,000
to Colombia for the partition of Panama.
"I replied to Colonel Roosevelt's letter
personally, saying that I would submit
the matter of hearings on the Colombian
treaty and his appearance before It to
the committee," said Senator Stone. "I
don't know what they will do about It"

Now that the delegates for the Iowa

tho convention, which is to bo hoW In
tho Auditorium there beginning at 10:30
this morning, there Is much talk of state
harmony and only an undercurrent that
savors of possible fllssentlon arising over
the question of state wide woman suf
frage and, state wide prohibition. Several
hundred of tho delegates gathered at the
Grand hotel during the day yesterday,
and discussed politics freely. They are
enthusiastic lot this year, and all declare
the democrats In the stato have a better
'chance this year, than they hays had .for
many years. .

that tho competition on the local market
this season was the keenest ever experi

"Kansas City pays tho highest price
of any market In tho country for grain,"
Mr. Ernst said. "Kansas City could not
control wheat prices It It would. The

loading elevators In Kansas, mentioned
by Mr. Doollttlo, was tho low market
price. This has Increased since his In

The chief complainant against Principal
L. C. Ilnimlsel of tho Omaha High School
of Commerce, charged with being "In
discreet," has icmoved herself from the
Jurisdiction of tho Board of Kducatlon
and 1ms refused to testify. Mr. Rusmlnct
and his attorney havo pwadpd with tho
prosecution to produco her! they state
publicly thut tho complainants have thus
far confined themselves to vague rumors
and heat nay und that this, chief witness
W responsible for all of tlicfcy rumors.
Miss Kdth Aldermnn, the witness In
question was told by tho Judiciary coin
mllteo of tho Hoard of JSducntlqn which Is
hearing thrt charges, that unless she re
turned from lior mother's home In Iowa
to testify the board would go to her and
tuko her testimony. She came to Omaha.
When tho cninmltteo met yesterday Mies
Aldcrmnn, known to hnvo lccn In Omaha
Tuesday night, had disappeared. Sho was
located In Council Bluffs, beyond the Juris
diction of the committee, and sho abso
lutely refused to go on tho stand, unless
Miss Kllnn 15. Drummond, now In

In Chicago, wero brought back.
"Sho In resorting to subterfuge," said
Attorney C. A. Qoss for Mr. Rusmlsol.

Tho chairman of the Judiciary com
mltten wired for Miss Drummond and
Miss White, offering to pay their return
expenses If they would come back to
testify, but they refused, saying they
know mo llttlo of the rasn that It would
not be worth whllo for them to return.
Attorney Kd Simeral and tho other com
plainants nro making no effort to Induce
Miss Alderman to go on th estand. Mr.
Simeral said he did not know what Miss
Alderman Intended to do.
Mr. Rusmlsel's friends declared Miss
Alderman was afraid to subject herself to
thn grilling examination' Attorney Qoss
had prepnred for her. Sho was formerly
a teacher at the Omaha High School of
Commerce nnd her services had ben dis
pensed with because of alleged Ineffi

Tho defense, which has assumed the at
titude of the prosecutors, has little hope
of securing Miss Alderman's testimony
now. Tho Investigating commltteo will
complete Its work today, all of tho avail
able witnesses having been examined.
Mr. Rusmlse), himself, went on the

testified for him wero Miss AUco B.

Twenty-two teachers and pupils have
appeared before tho Judiciary committee

WASHINGTON, July 22! Ambassador
Da Gnna of Brazil and Ministers Sunrz

mediators In tho Mexican affair, ap
pealed to President Wilson today to hao
the United States use Its Influence with
General Cnrranxa to obtain a general
amnesty for those who supported the
It wns tho first formal call of the three
mediators since tho conference at Niagara
Falls adjourned. They wero accompanied
by Secretary Bryan and for nearly nn
hour discussed the Mexican situation In
all Its phases. They expressed the view
that Francisco Carbajal was ready to
turn over the government to General Car
ranzn, but wanted guarantees that the-
would bo no wholesale executions, ar
rests or confiscation of property.
Thoy told President Wilson that Car
bajal would not surrender uncondition
ally and that unless these guarantees
for tho protection of tho lives and prop
erty of those who supported Huerta wero
given would concentrate all tho military
forces and resist to the utmost any ef
fort to Invade Mexico City.
Statement by Diplomats.
Tho president nnd Mr. Bryan listened
attentively to tho ivlows of the South
American diplomats, especially as they
Indicated that their governments proba
bly would be unable to recognize any ad
ministration In Mexico which refused to
give quarter to Its enemy or establish
Itself by peaenful means In accordance
with civilized practice among nations.
After their talk with the president Sec
retary Bryan and the three diplomats
went to tho State department for a con
ference. That the Influence of the United States,
was being relied on by Provisional Presi
dent Carbajal to obtain satisfactory terms
frqnl ,tlio constitutionalists wns explained
also by Joso Castellnt, personal rcpre
sintatlvo of Carbajal. The mediators
conforred not only with Mr. Cairtellot,
but also with Emlllo Rahassa, head of
tho delegation which represented Huerta
I nt the Niagara conferences.
