Washington, May Mexican situation exhibited these cardinal de- velopments: The Huerto und American missions at Niagara Falls were neuring accord oa the disposition of the troublesome land problem, one of tbe causes of Mexican unrest. A satisfactory basis for resolving tbp dispute the Huerta govern- ment and the United States, the inter- national phase of the question, was declared to have been reached. Denial was made that Carranza had refused to consider any form of media- tion proposals. Some men in the con- ference of the Constitutionalist declar- ed that be was closely watching pro- ceedings at Niagara Falls and seriously considering some proposals. Of those developments the view was taken in some quarters that reportn that the two missions sought to op the vexing agrarian problem In spirit of conciliation seemed moat en- couraging. The Huerta delegates wen- said to have receded from their orig Inal position that the land Issue for internal solution only, while the American mission gave ground from their first viewpoint that it should settled at the mediation proceedings.

The real fight is j Penrose and Pinchot. and it i is going to be a very lively one." Dr Yeaney Gave It as His Opinion That Hoston, In the Absence of a Shown Method For the Crime, Was Not in Right Maind at the Time. The attorneys for the prisoner in the case in which Clayton- Hoeton was charged with the killing of James Dunkle near Cataract on Sun- day, April fought hard to the nergo from the electric chair. Tuesday afternoon and evening were devoted by, the court in hearing the testimony for the defense, and the case was held up pending the consid- eration of a hypothetical question prc pounded to Dr. Yeaney. It Is the plea of the defense that Hoston killed Dunkle while he, Hos- ton, was suffering from the effects of an epileptic fit. It is claimed by Hoston that his mind was a blank from the time he rose from his chair in the dance house and started to- ward the door until sometime after- wards, when he found himself under arrest. Long Legal Battle A lengthy legal controversy ensued this morning when the counsel for the prisoner presented its hypotheti- cal question, the gist of which was whether or not Dr Yeaney in the absence of any motive shown by the commonwealth for the killing of Dunkle, in view of the peculiar actions of Hoston after tne crime In trying to kick panels off the fence, n wandering around the country, In returning to the house in? which the killing took place early the next morning, in viewing the dead man and in making no attempt to escape Hoston might have been suf- fering from mental aberration due possibly to a sudden attack of ep- lepsy. The question was finally admitted and Dr. Yeaney stated that he :hought Huston was not responsible 'or his crime because, in the doctor's opinion the crime was such a hideou one it was impossible to believe that a man who was en good terms with the dead man, who had shaken hands with him and had drank with him, would commit the deed In his right senses. Commonwealth's Question. The commonwealth then presented to Dr. Yeaney the question whether a man who had shown symptoms of a peculiar state of mind; who had walked to Dunkle's side, placed his arm around him, drew a knife from its sheath, used the knife to stab and slash Dunkle, walk out of the house, reappear next morning af- ter hiding al) night, trying to run away when told to halt, was at the time suffering from an epileptic fit. The doctor said that under such circumstances he was of. opinion that the man was not in a fit. Dr. Stewart on Stand Dr. S.C. Stewart was called to the stand a.n-d given a hypothetical qu-es tion by the commonweaVth differing firojn that asked Dr. Yeaney only in constructirn. Dr. Stewart declared it as his opinion that a man who acted as Hoston didwasmot in an epileptic fit at the time. It is expected that the case go to the jury sometime today. The prisoner, when on the stand Tuesday, declared that he had no recollection of anything that ed from the time he gave his guitar to a woman to at 1 o'clock on Sunday mc-rn-ing until 5 o'clock the same morning, wheii he found him self lying behind a log about 400 feet from the house in which Dunkle was killed. It was shown by witness- es that Hoston had returned to the house, gazed at the corpse and then started to walk toward Cataract.wher he was shot and arrested. High School Students Enjoy a Day on the Mitchell Farm. The High School seniors, chaperon- ed by Prof. Henderson, walked to the Mitchell farm Tuesday held a picnic. Some of the thinking that the walk was too short, sauntered on past the road that tod to the grounds and had the pleasure of walking back to the place again. The class wae given a warm wel- ome by the bugs and mosquitoes. A smudge fire made by the Boy Sconte helped to tell them that the clan wouM be just as happy without their company. A big swing was found and used. Many ventursome lade and lassies climbed the dizzy height to the little :abln In the trees. The great athletic stunt of the evening was Paul Watson's climbinc rope. A Joyous game of tree tag neded the affair, and all returned to their homes, tired and happy. HIGH SCHOOL BAND Discourses. Delightful Muelo on the Streets on Monday Night.
