Joint Policing: ol Bandit-Infested
Country Probably Chief
EL PARO, Test,, April 30. Two
conflicting proportions developed
Immediately after tho beginning tn
the Mexican custom house In Juarea
yesterday of the conference to do-
cide the future dtapoaltion of th
American expeditionary forces In
Mexico, They arc vinderatood tern
porailly to have Increased the grav
ity of the negotiations. The confer
ence began at 6 o'clock and lasted
two hour.
Tho initial meeting waa held b
hind loaed doors in the big, green
tinted rootd which Francisco Villa
used as his council chamber when
ho dominated northern Mexico and
Jttare was hla headquarters, Gen
erals Hugh L, Scott and Frederick
Kunston represented the United
Rtaiea. The Mexican conferees wer
General Alvaro, Mexican mlnlater of
war, and General Jacinto Trevino
military commander of the north
eaat district of Mexico.
Two Thing Learned,
The progress of the negotltlnn waa
not divulged, but from an authoritative)
anuria two thing were learned.
I' ll at, that the Mexican ropreaentattve
reiterated the wialt preed in Oeneral
t'arranxa'a recent note to the Washing
ton government that the American troop
should be withdrawn from Mexican soil
at an early date,
Koeond, that (hey were Informed by
Iho American officials mat. th latter
were not empowered to rflacus th with-
drawsl of (Jenaral Pershing' columns.
It la understood th American repre
aentslhes told tha Mexican confer
that If the de fscto government Insisted
on an American svseuatlon th confer
encs so far as th frilled (dates i.
wiiol mstter would revert to a dlplo
malin discussion between Washlngtoi
and MYxlro City.
llamllt Must lie W Iperf Oat.
Tha Mexicans were further Informe,
eric so fsr aa the I nlted States wer.
eonoerned, la th development of a sp
rifle ptsn for th co-operation of lli
American and de facto armlea in wiping
out the bandit groups that have eplllni
ao much blood along tha border and hav,
repeatedly taken American Ufa In tie
Interior of Mexico.
It la underatood that General Obregoti
tha Mexican minister of war, prior to th.
conference openly expressed a dlslnclln
tlon to discus any other subject tharl
wlthdrswsl and that ha cert-led this attl
tud Into tha Initial meeting.
After tha primary Issues had heel
broached, however, b la reported to hav
carried out the Intention b announce'
ahortly after hla arrival on Friday o
meeting (lencial Hcott, snd funstoi
"half way" In the negollstlon.
I, title Made rnbllc.
Tha attitude of eerallvne mslnt,lne
by the official taking part In tha con
ferance gave rise to all sorts of apaoula
tlona In Kl Taso tonlgnt. Mexlcsn off!
clal. declared their Intention of allowdn
the American, to do all the talking, Th
latier refused all but the moat I neons

In well Informed quartera, however, th
opinion waa freely expressed that th
preaent negotiations ar vnllkely to lea
to any derinlte disagreement. It ws
pointed out that the (.'nrratixa. governmer,
could not afford to tali any atep tha

I I'nlted Plates wss concerned. It ws
argiied, It had consistently held to a ' h
i brother policy" toward tha country sout
