BANGERS COME TO RESCUE
WASHINGTON. Aug. 9. A very
definite policy as to Mexico has been
agreed upon by the Pan-American
conference, Secretary Lansing an
nounoed today. "The conference
adjourned because I wished to. con
sult President Wilson about it," he
said. "I have consulted the presi
dent and the conference will be re
sumed." Mr. Lansing would not dis
close the conference plans.
Charles A. Douglas, counsel her for
Carranxa, satd he did not believe the
general contemplated giving the Braslllan
minister his passports.
"Regardless of personal differences
that may exist between General Carranza
and the Braslllan minister at Mexico."
said Mr. Douglas, "the necessity of main
taining friendly relations with the gov
ernment of BraxU and the government
of the United States, particularly the
latter, would preclude any overt action
toward Mr. Cordosa,"
Other representatives of General Car
rsma here, . however, had no hesitancy
In saying the Brazilian minister was par
ticularly distasteful to General Carranxa
,end they expected hla stay Jn Mexico City
would be terminated.

BROWNSVILLE, T., Aug. 9,-Flve
Mexican bandits and one Mexican woman
were killed in the fighting yesterday at
Norlas, sixty-eight miles north of here.
For an hour fifteen Americans, eight cf
them United States cavalrymen, stood
off the attack of sixty Mexicans. Five
of the Americans were wounded, three
of the latter soldiers. . The fifteen Amer.
leans were saved from death Just as
their ammunition gave out by the arrival
of seventeen Texas rangers.
The Americans, rangers and soldiers,
had gone to Norlas" ranchhouse search
ing for Mexicans. Eight soldiers were left
at the railroad at Norlas', while the re
mainder of the party, numbering seven
teen rangers, went to search a water hole
twelve miles distant.
Meanwhile the Mexicans, from cover
of the brush, galloped, toward the Uttle
detail of soldiers at Norlas'. .The sol
dier a. at first took them for rangers re
turning. Seven American civilians, all
armed. Joined the cavalrymen. The Mex
icans swept down upon this party and
seized a section house while the soldiers
lay flat on the railroad tracks with the
civilians, trying to pick off their attack
ers. Slowly the Americana retreated,
crawling and firing and concentrating
toward the ranch house,, which was about
too yard from the Mexicans.
Killed In Open Fight.
The open fights was where the Amer
icans were wounded. One aoldler, lying
on his stomach on the railroad, received
a bullet through his back. Another sol
dier lost his upper Up, while the third
was shot in the leg. Foreman Forbes of
the King ranch was wounded In the
right leg. Frank Martin, another ranch
foreman, had his left arm badly shat
tered. The Americans were fighting from
cover of the ranch house when the rang
ers returned, dismounted in the brush
and crawled into the house, apparently
unobserved by the Mexicans, who after
a short fight made off.
State Adjutant General Henry Hutch-'
trigs, who was with the rangers, said to
day that he believes the arrival, expected
by tomorrow, of twenty mora rangers
and of four companies of United States
Infantry from Loredo will Insure the
restoration of peace.

Such a whirlwind Joh of threshing
was never before witnessed In Ne
braska as that In progress yesterday
afternoon at the opening of the big
National Farm Tractor demonstra

Threshing out of the shock, with
out a horse in sight anywhere In the
field. That was literally the situa

gasoline power has long been practice d
In Nebraska, up to this day horses have
always been used to haul hayrack load
of bundles to the machine.
Not so on this occasion. Tractors. The
city of Fremont is a-awarm with tractors.
They swarmed out upon the big field in
the afternoon for. the initial parade and
opening of the demonstration. After the
parade dosens of them hooked onto the
wagons and began -hauling tons f bun

soon almost burled by the quantity of
grain thus brought to its mouth. 1
All Hauled b Tractor.
Horses that had been - drawing the
threshed grain to . the granaries were
taken away and turned out to pasture.
Compact and' powerful tractors wheeled
In front of the wagons, backed up, hooked
on and began to ply rapidly and am othly
between the separator and the granaries.
The tank wagon was hauled by a tractor.
The coal wagon was yanked about by a
tractor. Bven . the lunch wagon 4 was
hsuled by a tractor.
And then there were tractors to spare.
There were traotors. -dosens of them,
that, with nothing at all to do in the
process of the threshing, Just fiollcked
about the stubble fields, disporting them
selves like colts after long confinement
In a close stall.
True, dosens of them threw the hook
into the clevis of the' drawbeam of big
gang plows and rolled over acres ana
acres of rich, black Platte bottom soil.
Just to show the great crowds what the
tractors can do in the way of plowing.
That, of course, is what the principal
demonstration consists of.

LONDON, Aug. 9. Russia having
rejected what in England Is regarded
as a bona fide proposal made by the
German emperor for peace, with a
part of Poland traded for Oallda, the
great struggle In the east must con
tinue, and as there Is no indication
of an immediate general offensive by
either side in the west, the struggle
of the Russian forces to shake them
selves free of the Austro-Oerman
grip, remains the chief factor in the
war news, with an added interest in
the Dardanelles operations.
The Qalllpoli field will be closely
s atched because of its possible bear
ing on the Balkan situation again
tlnimering by reason of renewed
tfuadruple entente pressure on Bui-rarla-
and Greece. Never before has
the importance of the operations at
ihe Dardanelles been more keenly
realUed in Great Britain and France
I than now. asDerlallr as there ara
I many indications that Germany plans .
Jto deliver its next hard blow against
I Serbia In order to link up with Tur
key and thus checkmate the spring '
plans of the entente allied powers.
It Is Increasingly manifest that Oer
many looks to the east for a settlement ,
of the war. By overrunning Serbia It
would oocupy a very favorable etrateglo
position to invoke Bulgaria's passive or
active - aid la reaohlng Constantinople

of such a move doubtless has brought

The Austro-Uermana continue to make
progress both to the northeast and to
