"Navy ChapV' Plea For Funds
Meets With Rebuff In Hotel
Managers R. N. R. Question a Stunner to Yisitor, Who
Then Decides He Doesn't Have to Have His
Check Cashed After All
A suave young man, tall, clean-cu*..
erect, came into the private office of
the manager of a large Broadway hotil
rday and asked if he could have
? check cashed. The manager thought
he could arrange that, and whom might
he have the pleasure of addressing?
"Oh, I'm one of those navy chapr,"
replied the visitor.
That was an unfortunate remark.
Thi.- hotel manager, it happened. ?***
an nEiglishman. He had returned only
a few months before from "doing h's

odd to him that a-. Bagliflh naval offi

of those navy chaps."

This question was a stunner. The

ly admitted he was a member of the

[From The TTlbur.e Buraau ]
Washington, Oct. 28.--The future in?
fluence of the United States in South
America depends largely on the elec?
tion of Charles F. Hughes, Latin-Amer
ican diplomats declare. While they do
not discuss politics publicly, and most
of them are personally unconcerned
over the election, President Wilson's
failure to make his actions support his
theories, particul>?rly in Mexico, has
convinced them this government cannot
gain the contidence of Latin America
while he is President.
In four years, they point out, Mr.
Wi!?on has done nothing toward a per?
manent settlement of the Mexican
probiem. With an announeed policy of
non-interferenee, he r*ep??tfldly inter
to no purpose. Latin America
acquiesced in thifl, reco-nizing ( ar
ranza, believing he woul 1 exact a flll
tilment of international obligflt
and would furnish the means to make
it pOBfllblfl. But to-day, they declare,
