Pedro Jose Zepeda foreign representative of the insurgent leader Augustino Sandino. His proposal Saturday that the United State. Marine. In Nicaragua withdraw Immediately, after which Sandino would cease his activities, met with a cold reception In Washington. . ' The new proposal is to betrln evacuation Immediately, or to agree to immediate evacuation, the Sandino faction to lay down its arms when notification Is given. Sandino- giving guarantees against resuming; hostilities. "A dispatch from Washington which say. that hostilities would cease the moment the rebels abandoned their arms somewhat perplexed me." Zepeda aald. "I wonder If thl. means the marines would be withdrawn so soon as Sandino lays down his weapons. "If such is the case, It seems to me there is a good-chance to bring about the pacification of the coun try. The fighting now ig growing more Intense and if It continues will mean the useless sacrifice of many lives. . "Would the United States anil the Moncada government agree to imnreaiate witnarawal of the mar. lne. if the Sandino faction laid down its arms and gave, adequate assurance mat it. would remain peaceful? "I assume that if this were done there would be assurance against any future intervention of American troops that Is. any unjustified intervention. Such an assurance, of course, wouLehbe necessary." The doctor declared that the only cause of warfare now in Nicaragua is the- presence of the marines, and that their departure will be a signal for. Immediate peace. . , 1 : w I 11 11 11 1 1 ---' 11 . m . . imii .mini asm 1 11 nil 1 W 1 II 1 $250,000 'Shadowing' Suit Declared Near Compromise CHICAGO. Feb. 24.
