RISH PRESBYTER'S HAVE NO OTHER FEELING THAN THAT OF BROTHERHOOD Havana, June 11.-President Wil-.son in liis address to tiio Mexican newspaper editors in Washington last i.'rlday expressed sincere friendsiiip for Mexico. Ills address,' wlilcli .is printed in Ihc morning newspapers here today follows in part: "I have never recoi^'ed n ,i?roup ot men who were more weU-omc, than you because it has been one of my (Wa-tresses during my iirosidency tluil the Mexican people did not more ihor-oughly understand the attitude ot tlie United States toward Mexico. 1 think 1 can assure you that attitude is one of sincere t'rieiulsflip.

Ilarliln, Wednesday, June 5.- fAs-suciatod I'ress.)-.'Vlthougli il has been reported that General Semenoff. commander uf the forces operating in Siberia, is hourly in o:{peclation ot Japanese troops lo support him, there is no cnnflrniation that these troops actually are on tlie way. 11 has been learned, liowover, that strong recommendations have been made by the diplomatic corps for the immediate intervention of the Japanese in the face of the growing German menace. Tlieso recommendations have been forwarded to Washington and the governments of �tho respective diplomats. Tlio friction between General llorvath, military commander at Harbin and Genaval Semenoff has been decided, Semenott having agreed to recopnizo the former's autliorityi Semenoff, however, will have a free hand in military altairu in Irans-Ual-Icalia. The fourth traiuload or General Or-lotf's contingent departed today to support General Kolmalcoff's expedition^ against Nlkolsk. Wlicl. seemingly lends color tu General Seiiienoff's aunouncemont of expected Japanese support is an order issued by Hid railway authorities prohibiting freight shipments between Itarbin and Chang-Cliung tor eight days. Tliere are also rumors tljnt the railway has received instructions to prepare for tlie early transportation of a litrge foroo from Chang-Chung. Reports of Japanese military movements are officially denied but it is admitted that definite 'iipor^atlons by China and Japan, with allied co-operation, are imminent. Public opinion ge'herally welcomes the' idea ot intervention, recognizing the necessity which throws the burden on Japan. Expressions ot regret have been hoard, however, that American troops win not take part in tlio intervention, as tho greatest confidence Is reposed in them. A MILLION DOLUm WOOL CLIP IN S. ALTA.

LAVISH USE OF , : MEN AUD GUNS, � i Paris, Juno 11.-Through Oi* lavish use of inen and hialerlal the Germans sought all dtvy Monday to widen the gains of Sundfiy in tho centre of tho Mont l)ldier-Noyon sector.
