MEXICO CITY. July 20. The details
of Mexico's proposals for a peaceful so-
lution of difficulties existing with the
I'nited States were made public Thursday
night by the foreign office when a copy
of the note sent to the Washington gov-
ernment July 11 was given to the news-
papers for publication In Friday morn-
The note suggests the naming or three
commissioner by each government tho
commissioners to meet at some neutral
point to dis.-use the .juestion of with-
drawal of American troops now in Mex-
ico and the drawing up of an agreement
providing terms for the reciprocal pa-
trolling of the frontier by the troop of
either nation and the investigation of the
origin of the parties who have raided
American border towns and definitely
fixing the responsibility for them.
In commenting on the note the foreign
office officials said that as it had not
yet been answered by the Washington
government they considered their duty to
the Mexican people to mnke it public
that the Mexicans might know what ef-
fort their government was making toward
a peaceful solution of the pending diffi-
culties. CONFERENCE PROBABLY
AT NIAGARA FALLS.
It has been learned from unofficial
sources that the conference prob.ibiy will
be held in Niagara Kalis. The names of
the Mexican delegates have not yet been
made public but it is known that they
will all be civilians and that the chair-
man of the commission will be a mem-
ber of General Oarranza's cabinet well
known in financial circles in the I'nited
It is believed that the conference will
convene .ar!y in August. The note
which the officials claim the I'nited
States has never answered is addressed
to Kiiseo Arredondo at Washington.
"By order of the citizen lust chief you
w-tll please transmit m writing to the hon-
orable secretary of state the following
"I have the honor to refer to the note
of your excellency dated the 7th of the
present month that was transmitted by
our confidential agent Arredondo and to
say that I have received instructions freni
the citizen first chief of the constitution-
alist army in charge of the executive
power to suggest through you to his ix-
ce.lency. Mr. 1'resident Wilson the idea
of naming three commissioners In repre-
sentation of each government to meet at
some place to be later agreed upon for
the purpose of holding a conference that
the proposition of the a' uatlon of Amer-
ican troops now occupying Mexican soil
may be decided forthwith iind that a
protocol or agreement may be drawn v:p
spe.ifying conditions for the reeipro -a!
crossing of the frontier by the forces of
either nation as well as to make i.n in-
vestigation of the origin of bandits to
date in order to definitely fix the respon-
sibility and settle pending difl'icu.ties
which may have arisen from s milar
causes all subject to the approval of the
"The Mexican government proposes
that the conferences referred to be car-
ried out in a spirit of frank cordiality
with a strong desire to arrive at an ar-
rangement honorable to both govern-
ments and with the idea that if the gov-
ernment accepts the proposal it will so
recommend to the delegates which it may
"The Mexican government considers
this the most effective manner for ar-
riving at the desired result and hopes the
government of th- I'nited States will
manifest its acceptance of this in order
th tt it may immediately be put into prac-
tice and thit the Mexican government
may send th.- names of its delegates. As-
sure his ex- ellency of my highest conrid-

caused the belief here that the Alta Pass
situation had been confused with pre-
vious reports of 11 deaths in another sec-

reduce the death list throughout the flood-
swept sections to 73. with possibilities
that some of these may be duplications.

The Associated Tress summarizes the
war situation as follows:
The Germans In the region of the
Somme river have been forced before the
fierce onslaughts of the French to give
up flrBt line trenches over a front of ap-
proximately six miles to the French and
to the north of the river similar lines a
thousand yards long to the British.
The forward push of the French ex-
tended from Barleux southwest of Pe-
ronne. to the height of Vermand-Ovlllers.
w-hlch lies some three miles west of Fres-
nes and marks an advance further along
the French front.
The British gain was made in the sec-
tor north of Bazontln-Longueval line and
in addition the troops of King George
captured more terrain In IVlvllle wood
and the village of Longueval. The French
also occupied and controlled further Ger-
man positions near Hardecourt.
In Thursday's right VK the French took
2900 prisoners threo guns and about 30
machine guns and a large quantity of war
material. Stubborn opposition was en-
countered by the British In their advance
and the fighting continues heavy on the
outskirts of the Longueval village and in
FRENCH APPROACH I NQ
Northeast of Verdun the French have
forged further forward near the Thiau-
mont wood and in the vicinity of Fieury.
The Germans southwest of Lutsk and
the Austrians at the bend of the Stokhod
river north of Sokul. in Volhynla. have
gone on the offensive against the Rus-
sians and gained successes over them
according to Berlin. In the region of Riga
and near Baranovichi heavy Russian at-
tacks against ye lines of the Teutonic al-
lies were repulsed.
Petrograd chronicles further gains for
the Russians against the Turks in the
Caucasus region detachments on the
right wing having moved forward a dis-
tance of about nine and one-half mils
and captured additional prisoners. Con-
stantinople records a repulse of Russian
attacks with heavy casualties to the at-
tackers on the Persian frontier.
In the Austro-Itallan theater bad
weather is hampering the operations in
the mountain regions.
