The conference Is called by the river
navigation boosters of Kansas City.
They have called for delesats from all
th liver towns that have any interest in
the navigation ot the Missouri river. The
conference will take up the matter of
fighting to have the Missouri river de
velopment continued. The preliminary re
port of Lieutenant Colonel Dekayne of
the United States army corps of engi
neers was not favorable to the continu
ance of the development with federal
money at this time. The congressional
policy as outlined and worked out a few
years ago contemplated the expenditure
of $20,000,000 within ten years on the de
velopment of the lower stretch of tho

Local Grain Men
Say the Dardanelles .
May Be Opened Soon
The fact that grain brokers for France
and England late Thursday cancelled
orders In Chicago and New York for
the delivery of more than 1,000,000 bush
els of wheat during September had a
depressing effect upon the Omaha grain
market. The cash market here followed
that of Chicago and commenced eelllne
off from the opjening of the morning
session of the exchange. The loss for the
day ranged from lc.
There was no old wheat offered, but
of the crop of this year, there were
thirty-four carloads on the market, selling-
at $1.09tl.lK per bushel.
Corn sold off In sympathy with wheat,
the decline being waic. There were
twenty-eight carloada, the sales being
made at 7-lQToVtc per bushel.
Oats were strong and steady to 2c up,
the prices " being 50tfS:c per bushel,
with sixteen carloads on the market.
Omaha grain men cling to the opinion
that the drop In prices at this time is a
forerunner of a decline that Is to con
tinue until a much lower level is reached.
They assert that perhaps the drop new
Is due to the early opening of the Darda
nelles, which wHl result In the release ot
the Russian wheat crop of last year that
has been held back.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 13. Presl-
dent Wilson on hi return from
Cornish, N. H., today wag given a
comprehensive account of the Mex
ican situation In all Us phases by
, The secretary told the president
that official reports Indicated that
the situation in the vicinity of
Brownsville mag of a local character
and that quiet prevailed at Vera
Crui, where there had been aome
anti-foreign demonstrations. He out
lined In detail the discussion of
peace plans at the New York confer
ence yesterday of the American dip
lomats. Look for Early Peace.
Neither the president nor Secretary
Lansing were Inclined to view the sit-1
uatlon as requiring any further precau-'
tlonary measures than have been taken
in sending battleships to Mexican waters
and more federal troops to the Texas
border. They devoted most of their tlm
to a discussion ot the Inter-Amerlcaa
plan on which they aro planning their
hopes for the early restoration of peace
In Mexico. 1
The appeal to all factions has not yet
been sent, although signed by Secretary
Lansing and the ambassadors and min
isters of the six central and southern
American governments participating in
the conference. A list of chiefs, gen
erals and governors is being compiled
and as soon as the locations of all are
determined the appeal will be telegraphed
simultaneously to every part of Mexico.
On the eve of this action came the
announcement from the Villa agency
here tonight that General Carransa ha
flatly refused to enter Into any peace
conference with his opponents. Knrlqus
C. Lrlbrente, Washington representative
of General Villa, gave cut letters which
have passed between him and Kl'io
Arredondo, the Carransa representative
Mr. IJorente began the correspondence
in observing in the press that Charles
A. Douglas, counsel for General Car
ransa, had filed a brief with the State
department calling attention to the pres
ence In Washington of Louis Cabrera
and Ellso Arredondo a Carransa rep
resentatives, and saying that "either or
both of thera, I am assured, will be
glad to confer with any element ot the
Mexican people with a view to further
ing the common Interest and the peace
and welfare of the nation."
Mr. Liorente promptly telegraphed Gen
eral Villa and was instructed to begin
a discussion of peace terms. Mr. Ar
redondo replied that he would refer the
matter to General Cananxa, whose re
sponse came today in tho form of in
structions to Arredondo not to enter into
negotiations , w'v the Villa agents.
The Carransa message -set forts, that
there could bo no negotiations with the
Villa forces becaure their troops on July
12 last attacked a military convoy train,
killing many Innocev people.

Wanted to Take Boy ,
With Him in Navy
A pathetic ease came to the notice ot
the local navy recruiting station at the
Federal building when a nice appearing
man entered with a boy about 6 years
old. The man gave the name of Henry
Chandler and said that he was from
Chicago. He asked whether or not ha
could johi the navy and be allowed to
take his litUa boy with him. In his story
he explained that the mother of the boy
had died some months ago, and he had
lost his Place as clerk In a Chicago store
when the firm failed a short time after
his wte's death. Since then he has been
looking for work in several cities, finally
coming to Omaha, only to be unable to
secure a place. He said that he had
promised his wife on her deathbed that
he would not place the boy in an orphan
asylum and that be would always re
main with him, but that he was nearly
out of money and could find no work,
so thought that he might be allowed to
enter the navy and at the same time be
allowed to keep bis boy with him.
