Serious consideration is being given by thi American-Mexican joint com mission to the idea of establishing some Sort of an international police or neutral constabulary along the Mexican border, it became known , here today. ; - ' As yet the propostion has not taken definite steps, but it is learned that the American commissioners, with whom the plan appeaj to be grow ing in favor, talked it over last night 1 with Major General Tasker H. Bliss and that they devoted part of today to further conferences with him on this and other projects. '' During the joint conference today the commissioners were told that Mexico still adheres to Jts existing constitution and legal codes, a point on which there had been much doubt ' in the United States. Until August 1, last, the Mexican members said, the provisions of the constitution had been suspended by war power, but with the re-establishment of civil courts Which began on that date, the old codes again became effective and would continue so until theycould be revised through necessary constitu- : tional amendments and acts of con- grcss.

BOTH SIDES STATE VIEWS Will the office of coroner be abol ished and the duties of the office wished on ' the county attorneys throughout the statej Is the amenament passed Dy ine last Nebraska legislature' in keeping with the law when it wipei out the coroner's position? These questions will ' be threshed oat 4fOT-tU-uprem-ourt r Lin coln Tuesdav mornina when the ap- pealed mandamus case of Coroner Crosby of Douglas county against Election Commissioner Moomead on mandamus proceedings demanding that Crosbv's name be placed on the ballot, will be argued. Deputy Coun ty Attorney Abbott will conduct the case for the . state, while Attorney R. M. switzler will, appear tor the coroner. - " Aoolication for a writ of man- damusvwas refused when the case was tried before Judge Day in dis trict court. ' "The state constitution requires that when an act is amended the spe cific statutes and provisions to be amended must be specified. The amendment passed by the legislature in 1915 is faulty in, this respect and when the case is argued before the supreme court we. will claim the act not properly amended and therefore ineffective,' said Attorney Switzler. Deputy County A'ttorney Abbott said; !r . . . Law Entirely New. "The contention of the county is that this law is not intended to amend the other laws now in force in regard to county attorneys and coroners, but is merely adding some duties already prescribed by statute to the county attorney; that the law is a new and complete, piece of legis lation. ' Coroner Crosby contends that the new law is amendatory and therefore unconstitutional, because it does not mention the sections of, the statute which it intends to'repeal. That, however, is not necessary where the act is complete in itself and the controversy is over the question as to whether or not the hew statute is amendatory or a complete act. , "The county attorney also argues that the duties of the county attor ney and county coroner are not in compatible, and therefore the law is not void for that reason. The countv attorney has already won the case on these points in the district court."..: Bulger Is Given ; Sixty Days'vReprieve Denver, Colo, Sept. 14.

Both Japan and Russia have given the United States formal assurances that the new Russo-Japanese treaty does not re peal or affect the treaties of 1907 and 1910, in which the nations pledged themselves to maintain the integrity of China and the open door policy. The assurances were given to Am bassador's Guthrie at Tokio and Fran cis at Petrograd, m response to in quiries.

' The treaties of 1907 and 1910 be tween Japan - and ' Russia affirmed China's territorial' integrity and the open door policy. Article 2 of the 1907 'treaty, which was reaffirmed with slightly different wording in the 1907 convention, reads: "The two high contracting parties recognize the independence and terri-. torial integrity of the empire of China and the principle of equal opportun ity in whatever concerns commerce and industries of all nations in that empire, and agree to sustain and da fend the maintenance of the status que and respect for this principle by all the specific means within their reach." .' , .

Officials expect that a copy of the new convention will be forwarded in due course. ' "Kruppism" Opposed By German Alliance Grand Island, Neb., Sept. 14. (Spe cial.)
