Washington, July 19. Informal
conferences between Acting Secre

Although press dispatches from
Mexico City have announced the ap

a joint comission to u. '..rtake ad

two countries, it was stated officially
at the department that no final agree

the negotiations had been reached. It
was explained also that if it should
be determined to make a joint com

could not be headed by Henry F.

Washington, July 19. "The 1-cent
newspaper will be a thing of the past
within a short time," predicts Secre
tary of Commerce William C Red
field. "Prices have increased all
along the line on nearly all commodi
ties and within the last few months
there has been a steady increase in
the price ot the materials entering
into the making of news print paper
and an increased demand for paper.
Increase is Imperative.
"The indications are that early this
fall, when the new contracts are
made, or before, there will be further
increases in news print paper prices,
and publishers will be unable to get
out 1-cent papers without a loss, ai d
an increase in price will be imperative.
From information which has
reached me I am of the opinion that
advertising rates will have to be in
creased also, as it appears that the
increased cost ot paper cannot be
made up alone by the increase in the
price of the newspaper."
Publishers in Conference.
Des Moines. July 19. Publishers
of Iowa and Nebraska met here on
Tuesday afternoon and evening to
consult as to ways for meeting the
paper shortage, which has come to
be a serious problem for all newspa
pers. This shortage is general over
the country and all- publishers are
acinar the same proposition, not
alone an advance in price of from 50
to u per cent, Put sucn a scarcity
as makes it difficult to get paper at
Anions the oublisheri at the con
ference here were E. P. Adler of the
Davenport Times, D. W. Norns of
the Marshalltown Times-Republican,
S. G. Goldthwaite of the Boone
News-Republican, Messrs. Ashford of
the Cedar Rapids republican and
Mr. Miller of the Cedar Rapids Ga
zette; Lafayette Young of the Des
Moines Capital, W. G- Crourise of the
Omaha World-Herald and C C
Rosewater of The Omaha Bee.
Omaha Papers Pool Supply.
The situation was thoroughly dis
cussed, each publisher recounting re
cent experiences. Mr. Kosewater
told of how the Omaha publishers
have found prices jumped from 2
cents per pound to as high as S cents
for paper purchased in carload lots;
how they have pooled on paper sup
ply, reduced the size of their papers
and how on a number of occasions
they have actually faced the likeli
hood ot aeing compelled to suspend
publication because of having no pa
per on hand.
E. P. Adler said the present paper
situation had forced him to a choice
between increasing his price for both
subscriptions and advertising or ceas
ing to publish. The other publish
ers recounted similar experiences.
Formal action on conclusions
reached was deferred.
Ready to Sail at
Baltimore, July 19. Shut off
entirely from the view of the public
at its pier at the foot of Andre street,
the German merchant submarine
Deutschland is believed to be ready
to sail at any moment. Its com
mander, Captain Paul Koenig, is or
dered by his American agents to de-Dart.
There was little activity apparent
about the boat today. All ot the re
turn cargo of crude rubber and nickel
is now in the hold.
Two big tank cars of oil standing
near the pier are said to be for the
Deutschland s sister ship, the tsrc
men. expected to arrive here soon.
Captain Koenig has cancelled all
social engagements and it was also
said that no more of the crew will be
allowed shore leave except for such
distance that they may be summoned
on board on short nonce.
Washinaton. July 19. Postoffice de
partment officials admitted Dr. George
W. McNeil, postmaster at Pittsburgh,
has been dismissed. Concerning the
dismissal, the ofhcial bulletin of the
"Notice to Postmasters A post
master at one of the most important
postoffices in the United States has
been removed for failure to co-operate

HUGHES ASKS FOR -
Republicans Urged to Bury
Petty Differences and Work
for Success of Ticket.

New York, July 19. Charles E.
Hughes today told callers that dis
sension among his supporters must
cease; that he expected all factions to
get together, subordinate what he
termed their petty differences and
work for the election of the national
ticket a'nd a republican majority in
both branches of congress.
The success of the party at the
polls, Mr. Hughes declared, depended
in a great degree upon a cessation of
"bickerings" between republicans and
former progressives and between vari
ous local factions of republicans.
Mr. Hughes, who came here today
from Bridgehampton, had a long talk
with Mayor Thompson of Chicago
and other political leaders from
Illinois over the situation in that
Mr. Hughes will meet at luncheon
tomorrow the members of his cam
paign committee and a committee of
five republican senators, who will have
in charge the republican national sena
torial campaign. Members of the re
publican congressional committee also
have been invited, i
Mr. Hughes held a long conference
today with Chairman Willcox, in
which the chief topics of discussion,
it is understood, were the adjustment
of local differences and the program
for the nominee's western trip.

Here in the middle west we will
not know how the infantile paralysis
epidemic will affect us for some time
to come, according to the opinion of
Dr. Clifford C. Grulee of Chicago,
who addressed ,the first session of the
annual meeting of the Sioux Valley
Medical association at the Hotel Fon-
tenelle yesterday afternoon. The dis
ease takes three or four weeks to de
velop and people from- New York are
only just beginning to get their chil
dren to the resorts of Michigan and
Wisconsin, fleeing from the epidemic.
Inasmuch as the exact origin and
means of infection of the disease are
unknown it will be difficult or im
possible to quaratine against the dis
ease. It would be impossible to quar
antine against all possible carriers and
direct contact does not always trans
mit the disease. It is known that if
a monkey is infected and the infection
is placed on the mucous membrane
of another monkey, that it will prob
ably induce the disease but the car
rier is unknown.
Many Children Immune.
It has been found in the study of
the disease, said Dr. Grulee, that there
js a high' degree of natural immunity
in;mosT$children, as frequently only
one -iiiiidi'of a group, or family who
havebeenv similarly exposed will be
aeffcted, and the natural bodily
strength and vigor of the child seems
to have very little jfect as regards
its immunity. The strongest child in
the family seems almost if not quite
as prone to attack as the weaker ones.
It is doubtful whether flies are the
carriers of this disease and verv lit-
Hle is known of the carrier. In a re
cent epidemic in Europe, careful study
of the cases showed that the children
of miners seemed to be more suscept
ible than other classes, which .gave
risa to. the thsjory, that the 'Miners
carried it in the dust of their clothes.
Another class of families particularly
affected were those wliere the father

Connected with the disease of cats

a precautionary measure it is well to
keep children away from cats and

Dr. J. G. Parsons of Sioux Falls
mentioned in the discussion, of the
paralysis that study ot numerous
eastern cases as reported in one of
the medical journals had shown that
children in small towns and even on
farms where sanitary conditions were
supposed to be almost ideal had been
found to be as prone to the disease
as in the cities and that it seemed
to be an ailment on which crowding
and housing conditions had very lit
Not Most Serious Problem.
Dr. Grulee made the rather sur
prising statement, m view of the gen
eral fear of infantile paralysis, that
it was not nearly so serious a prob
lem to the medical profession as is
the proper treatment and cure of
summer diarrhoea in infants. He ad
vocated three general things which
the physician must observe in the
treatment of the disease:
First, a stoppage of all irritants, in
eluding both food and cathartics and
Second, a prevention of desiccation
which may require in extreme cases
the use of stmulants, but more usu
ally is better accomplished by injec
tions ot water.
Third, the prevention of starving,
No child should be allowed to go
without food for more than forty
eight hours under any conditions of
the disease. After this time food must
be injected, and the child brought
back to a normal balanced diet as
rapidly as his condition will allow.
1 he point most emphasized, however,
by the doctor was that the child
should not be dosed with medicine,
which would usually serve to aggra
vate the complaint.
Use of Anesthetics.
Dr. M. A. Stern of Sioux Falls ad
vocated an extended use of local an
esthetics in preference to general
anesthesia in an increasing number
of major surgical operations which
have previously required ether or
chloroform administration. He re
ported very successful results with
novocaine injected under pressure,
and recommended its use e .cept in
cases of extremely nervous patients.
Dr. F. E. Coulter of Omaha ana
lyzed the different varieties or causes
of headaches and urged the physi
cians to be careful in their diagnonis
and not attempt to give temporary
relief and trust to the patient's natur
al recuperative powers to pull him
through. A careful diagnosis will
usually bring out a reason for the
headache, which, if remedied, pre
vents the recurrence of the trouble.
Last evening the association 'en
joyed a smoker at the Fontenelle.
'1 he election of officers, postponed
from yesterday morning, owing to
tlic poor attendance until afternoon,
is scheduled for tliib morning.
BRITISH ADVANCES In the offensive carried out up to
the end or last week the British captured Bazentin-le-Grand

Blacklisted American Importers
To Appeal to State Department
New York, July 19. With very
few exceptions all the business firms
and individuals placed by the British
government on the black iist under
the trading with the enemy act, have
their headquarters in New York City.
Most of these merchants expressed
no surprise today over the action of
! Great Britain. J. A. Kal,l, an ex
porter and importer, said:
"This Mack list has been in the

Not only has my business, which
was mainly with China, Japan and
far eastern countries, been broken off
completely by seizure of goods, but I
have been unable to buy bills of ex
change or in any other way settle my
affairs. Others have been unable tu
get bills of exchange through me."
Alfred Richter, a trader with Chin
ese and Japanese merchants, made a
similar complaint. "My goods have
been seized at Hong Kong and else
where regularly," he said, "until 1
stopped doing business. My mail to
mi agents in Canton. Ticu Tsen and
other cities were returned to me. The
reason, so far as 1 can guess, is that
once, almost thirty years ago, 1 was
