RECOGNITION FOR Formal Suggestion for Peace Parley Filed With Secretary Lansing. PROMISES TO BECOME ACTIVE, LOYAL FRIEND Admits Without U. S. Aid His Movement Will Opposition to Tagle. WASHINGTON, Aug.

Mexlean situation moved forward today with two important developments. General Carranza signified his willingness to meet his adversaries in a peace conference, and an authoritative announcement was made of the views with which the United States is approaching the problem in the Pan-American conference. The position of the United States was officially stated as follows: "That neither Carranza nor any other military faction in Mexico is in control of the country or can be considered as triumphant in the republic. the real ptirpose of the revolution was accomplished a year ago, when Huerta was overthrown, and that the. strife which has continued since has been over factional differences and has not been in reality a revolution.

"That it considers Genera! Villa, while financially weakened, still is on active element in Mexican affairs who must be reckoned with in an adjustment. "That the so-called Cientiflcos do not enter into the problem now, because it is considered that the overthrow of Huerta disposed of that elet ment. Mexico In Not at Peace. mat tne greater portion ot Is not at peace, as General Carranza claims, because fighting continues In many sections from Tehuantepea to the Rio Grande and from Vera Cruz to Mazatlan. "That the first problem to be solved In restoration of peace is to find for provisional president a man who represents the cause of the original revolution against Huerta, but who does not necessarily represent any of the factions now at war," This outline Is the first authoritative statement of the basis upon which the United States is proceeding.

General Carranza's brief, filed with the State Department by his American counsel, Charles A. Douglas, not only proposes a peace conference with Ins adversaries, hut practically asks recognition. It was made clear today that the United States, while willing to entertain claims of the rival leaders, such as presented in the brief filed on behalf of General Carranza, does not accept the declarations of any of the military leaders that they are so dominant as to insure peace In Mexico should they be recognized. Not in Control. Carranza, it is held, cannot he considered in control of the situation any more than other leaders, even though he may hold more territory, because, villa's forces and bands still are operating.

The Latln-Americnn diplomats are said to share the view that a stable government he established only by selecting a man who represented the cause of the original revolution against Huerta and upon whom the leaders now at war could unite. The Carranza brief sets forth the formal suggestion of a peace conference in the following language: "We, have in Washington Mr. Arredondo. in the capacity of a special representative of the constitutional government, and at this time Mr. i abrera, a member of Mr.

Carranza cabinet, is here. They are men of line ability and excellent character, and are anxious to serve their country in the highest and best sense. Either both of them, I am assured, will be glad to confer with any element of tiie Mexican people with a view of furthering the common interest, the peace and the welfare of the Opposition lo Taglo. The proposal to restore the constitutional succession to the presidency, where it was broken by the death of Madera, by elevating Vasquez Tagle, member of the Madero cabinet, to the office of provisional president, the brief says, would defeat the alms of the revolution. "The of the constitutionalists," says the brief, "and it is now well under way, is to make the principles the revolution effective as war ncasures by military decrees during tile extraconstitutional period, and then to have the congress ratify them them into law." After an outline of General Carranza's qualifications, the brief says lie admits Mexico can scarcely prosper without the co-operation of the United States, and says that if res cognized the United States will find In him "an active, loyal friend." The proposal of a conference came as a surprise, not only to the representatives of the other Mexican factions, but to American officials, who have been led to believe that General Carranza was irrevocably opposed to any further parleys with his adversaries.

The reluctance of General Carranza to come to any peace tions was one of the first obstacles which confronted the Pan-American diplomats when they began their conferences with Secretary Lansing. Jitney Driver Paroled to Await Outcome of Injuries to Man His Car Ran Down Harold Switzer, a jitney driver, of Dodd street, East Orange, who inn down Samuel Bernstein, thirty years old, of 376 Fifteenth avenue, at Springfield avenue and Mercer street Ust night, was arraigned before Judge Wolf in the Fourth Precinct Court today and paroled to await the outcome of Bernstein's Injuries.

Why is it you are building up this investment fund from year to year? "Do you think it is good public policy for a society of ihis sort? "Is a society like this in healthy condition with a sunplus like Colonel Unruffled. Colonel Edwards was not at all nonplussed by the questions, and replied that the society has been thirty years accumulating the fund, of which a substantial part, he said, had come through bequests, and that the ambition of the S. P. C.

A. had been to "do as other great societies have done, secure a home for the society. "And the ambition of my life has been to have enough money to establish a home and hospital for infirm and decrepit horses. That has been the aim and object of all my connection with the society," continued the S. P.

C. A. head. "Thirty years ago I had to take them (the society members) into my office to give them a home. When the public found we were doing the work, the came in.

The work received the commendation of all well-regulated Mr. Pilgrim suggested other uses for the accumulation than Its continuance as an investment fund. steps does your society take after a fine is imposed on the driver a lame horse to protect the horse?" he asked. He questioned various items of expense in the annual report, among them the "expense" accounts. and turned the searchlight on the income of the agents.

That of Lewis Teed interested the committee. In 1914 Mr. Teed received $3,263 from the society for prosecuting 328 cases, and, In addition to this, was paid a month for the keep of a horse and the of his telephone. In 1913 Mr. Teed was paid for prosecuting 290 eases, and in 1912 Adam Raedig, now deceased, another agent for the society, was paid In six years, as follows: 1909.

1910, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1914, The agents are now on salary. Mr. Pilgrim wondered whether this the reason the cruelty have fallen off greatly since June 1. Colonel Edwards declared It is not. He said the new statute passed by the 1915 Legislature was responsible for the falling off.

Agents now have great difficulty in making an arrest, he said, and have great difficulty as well in getting a conviction. The fines Imposed by the police magistrates, he said, are ridiculous. No Police After 4 o'clock. is no one at tne ponce siation to try the case after 4 A'clock," he declared. "The next morning the agent may have to wait around from 9 until 11:30 or 12 and then the case is adjourned.

And perhaps. 1 may parenthetically remark, the law, as I read it, distinctly states cases of summary arrest must be tried at once. In case after case the agents are compelled to wait half a day or more. And any veterinary will tell you the appearance of a sore can be changed in fifteen minutes and that the horse itself is the best evidence in all these cases. If the trial follows immediately on the arrest, the marks on a beaten horse are still visible.

"I hesitate one moment to say that the fines imposed in these cases have been ridiculous, under present Colonel Edwards continued "haw without penalty is only advice. Feel that," the colonel commanded, Mr. Pilgrim extending a blood-stained club a yard long and tapering from a two-inch to a oneand-one-half-inch diameter. "A man took and heat a horse eight times wilii that, smashed the flesh, almost broke a leg, and was fined $20.

Mr. Pilgrim made some of the agents, who were in the room subpoenaed as witnesses, glance up when ho asked the colonel, "Do you think the agents are engaged in the protection of the animals as assiduously as in the collection of think doing the very best they was the reply. He said veterinary services were given injured or abused horses, and paid for where the owners were unable to do so, and that the agents maintained a surveillance of the horses after fines had been Imposed.

Assemblyman Pilgrim produced an order, signed by Colonel Edwards, permitting Eeslle Bilker, of 146 Second street, Newark, to drive a lame horse. Colonel Edwards said the order specified that the horse should be before the order could go into A point on which Mr. Pilgrim wanted much information was the alleged selling by agents of the society of carcasses of condemned animals which had been killed. "Are you willing to put your seal of approval on confiscation by a public police officer? You know the carcass belongs to the owner until he gives it away," Mr. Pilgrim addressed the colonel.

Colonel Edwards said he had heard rumors of agents selling carcasses, but had paid no attention to the report. He said he had been informed there were no recent occurrences.

Italian Vote Threatening to Swing to Dalrymple Unless some satisfactory' explanation Is forthcoming from the leaders of the Raymond faction in the Republican party as to the reason for declining to give Joseph Gluliano, president of the Rovie-IJncoln Social and Political Club, an indorsement for Assembly, it is prohalile that tlie wavering Italian vote will he found solidly behind the Dalrymple in the September primaries. Such, at least, is the current political gossip in Italian circles. Incidentally, it is hinted that Assistant Commissioner Michael De Vita is the man responsible for turndown at the hands of Mayor Raymond's friends, and as a result several members of (he BovieLlncoln Club are threatening to resign from the organization The club, although a Republican association, has hitherto carefully refrained from laklng sides in the Raymond-Dalrymple tight, but it was well known that a large proportion of the members were well disposed toward the "Anti-Dai" movement. Some time ago, It Is said, Gluliano was approached by representatives of the Raymondite faction, and was tendered a place on the Assembly ticket next September. Subsequently, after a conference between Raymond arid Commissioner DeVita, It is said, the offer was withdrawn.

a result the friends of Gluliano are highly indignant over what they consider a breach of faith. At a special meeting of ihe club held last night in Victoria Hall, 687 North Sixth street, there was a wordy war, which for a time threatened to end In fisticuffs. A few members suggested that the -lub Indorse the Raymond movement, and this precipitated the trouble Glullano's friends threatened resign from the association if any such action was taken, and finally the mailer was put off for disposition at next Friday's meeting.

PI HAS A Since 1912 Not a Passenger Has Been Killed in a Train Accident. August the first six months of 1915 the Pennsylvania Railroad made more than 2,000,000 efficiency tests of all kinds, nnd 99.9 per cent, of them showed perfect observance of all rules and regulations on the part of 135,458 employes. Here are eomo results of this record: Twenty-eight nnd one-half per cent, less employes were killed in the first six months of 1915 than in the corresponding period of last year. This was not due to heavy decrease in train mileage, as passenger train miles were only 6 per cent, nnd freight train miles 8 per cent, less than in 1914: In 1914, 119 employes were killed in the first six months from various causes, while in 1915 eighty-five employes were killed.

No passenger was killed In a train i accident in the period covered by these a matter of fact, no passenger has been killed in a train accident on the Pennsylvania Railroad since 1912. A decrease in accidents Is invariably accompanied by a high record of efficiency on the pari of all employes, as shown in the efficiency tests which are mnde regularly. These tests cover the work of both officers and the rank and file. The records for the first six months of this year show that 23,390 tests were made in the use of signals, and 99.4 of them showed employes living up to the strict letter of the rules. Over 10,000 tests were made with signals set at stop, nnd in only thirteen cases did the trains fail to stop before passing the signal by so much as a foot.

Union Labor Bulletin Defends Factory Strikes An article in the August number of the Union Labor Bulletin defends the proposed strikes in factories turning out munitions for the European belligerents, saying "the manufacturers having accepted orders which they cannot shirk, labor realizes its opportunity to press homo vital questions which have been long in abeyance." The question is raised in an article concerning the State convention, whether the New Jersey State Federation of Labor is really dealing intelligently with legislative problems or devoting its time to internal politics. The convention opens In Jersey City Monday, August 16. POLICE GUARD (font I uimI from money required to meet the regular weekly pay roll of the Sloane Chase plant was conveyed to the factory this morning in an automobile, under police guard. The custodians of the cash were William Weber, son of the president of the company, who is the paymaster. and H.

B. Annin, treasurer of the corporation. With them in the large touring car was Patrolman Louis Schnekel, of the Fifth precinct, corner of Orange and Sixth streets. The precaution of providing a police guard for the money was due to the forethought of President William Weber, who telephoned last night to police headquarters and asked that a man be assigned. He was directed to prefer his request this morning through the Fifth precipct, and accordingly at 9 upon his arrival at the factory' he i communicated with Lieutenant John N.

Stites, who was on desk duty, stating that tie feared an effort might bo marie by some of the more lawless strikers to rob the paymaster before he reached the plant. Lieutenant Stites requested that Mr. Annin and the younger Webber call at the police elation on their way to the bank, and promised to have a uniformed man ready to accompany them. Patrolman Schenkel was chosen for the duty. The trip was accomplished without any incident of an alarming character, and promptly upon arriving at the plant Messrs.

Annin and Webber began the task of sorting out the hills and plocing the money in the pay envelopes. 'fhe men will be paid at the regular hour today, and extra police will he on hand to prevent any deni onstratton or disorder on the part of the strikers. This morning two mounted policemen were on hand at ari early hour and will remain on hand throughout tlio day. Mounted Policemen Ileger and Anderson, Motorcycle Patrolman Bicycle Patrolman Hickey, and Policeman Brennan of the Fifth Precinct were on duty at the plant when the men were paid off lint they had no work to do.

More than 300 strikers responded in turn as his shop number was called and exchanged ills identification tag fig- his wages. Tile workmen were very curious to know whether a discharge would accompany the wages, and had voted at lie morning meeting to demand entrance to the plant for the purpose of removing their tools if they were notified their services were no longer required. When no such notice was received they were visibly pleased. Secretary Charles Heyde, who with Organizer Carl Larson of the Brotherhood of Metal Workers Is in charge of the strike, announced today that the pickets reported only iwentynine men at work this forenoon. Secretary Heyde said also that their organization work at the CrockerWheeler Ampere place and the H.

R. Worthington company's plant in Harrison would go forward speedily commencing Monday. Dally noon meetings will be held outside the company's gates with national officers of the Brotherhood 111 charge. 19 Is estimated that about 300 metal workers attended the mass meeting Hint was held at Labor Lyceum. Fourteenth street and Springfield avenue, last night.

The. meeting was addressed by Charles Heyde. national secretary, ond Stephen Blrseher. who told the men of ihp value of organization. Hyde rapped the American Federation of Labor for paying Samuel Campers a salary of 17.300 per year, for, he stated, that in so doing Cnmpers was placed above the men that he was supposed to represent.
