'I JlA SAYS "HANDS OFF'"
HE WILL NEITHER ACCEPT ME
CIATION OR INTERVENTION.
Claims National Dignity and Honor
Do Not Exact It-Won't Treat
With Rebels.
Mlexic(o City. - President Huerta
Tues,.day reiterated the declaration of
his policy of "hands off" on the reply
to a question as to what would be his
attitude in case an offer of media
tion should be made by the United
States through John Lind, who is com- Pa
inc: b1oere as the personal representa- Cl
tive of President Wilson to act as ad- re
visoer to the American embassy. Ni
"I have said publicly," President th
Il.erta declared, "that I will not ac m
cept mediation or intervention of any st
kind. because national dignity and re
honor do not exact it. I have de- di
clarted also that I will not treat with do
the rbelws,. and much J-es will I do
so if the insinuation exists that such ml
involh.. a flagrant violation of our wi
sovwreiro nty.
"The question of dignity admits of at
no transactions and the present strug- do
gle should be conducted implacably
until the national aspirations are sat- te
isfied. All should be joined In the no
bonds of peace, rejecting all sugges- in
tions of a violation of sovereignty and cc
any insult that may be offered to our vi
nationil dignity." e°t
Personal friends of President Huerta
and military men who appear to en
joy his confidence, vigorously assert
that he. will not consider resigning or an
any .compromise with the rebels. gr
They say they would regard as wi
gratuitous the sending of a repre- so
sentat;ve here by the United States tb
with the announcement that he is in- tb
tended ultimately to be ambassador, iii
but whose primary mission is to act
as juediator. They insist that if the oa
United States is sincere in its desire 111
to restore peace, the most practical
means to this end would be the reco g-l
nltion of the Huerta government. in
That any suggestion by Mr. Lind or m
any other foreigner that President w,
Huerta shall resign in favor of a pro- tu
" visional president, or that a eompro- T
mise be effected by the govern ment, a
was the comment of one man Nigh In at
offlclal life Tuesday. He added that so
mediation from the outside was out
of the question.

Church Congregation Divided. t
Shreveport.-A letter received by the
Pastor W. W. Armstrong from Bishop sh
Chandler states that he refuses toch
recognize as the official or regular
Noel Memorial Methodist congregation tr
the ones who remained in the Noel
memorial edifice when Pastor Arm
strong and the majority of stewards (
recently abandoned it on account of en
disagreement with J. S. Noel, the
donor.
The "independents." as those re- nU
maining in the building are termed, du
wished to be recognized, it seems,
but the bishop sided with the pastor
and those following him in the aban
donment. ye
The regular congregation has a th
tent, which will be used until further tol
notice. Last Sunday they worshiped th
in the Centenary College chapel. The lei
congregation seems about evenly di- tle
vided, and an adjustment of differ- fol
ences seems as far off as ever. be
Diled at Age of 100. T
Walker-When a photographer made ho
an effort Saturday to obtain a photo
graph of the late Richard Meadows, a
who died Tuesday at the home of his be
son, Mose Meadows, near Walker, at of
the age of 106 years, he was informed re
that Mr. iMeadows, during his entire th
life, had never posed for his picture.
Mr. Meadows also had never ridden
on a trali. He followed the simple 40
life of a rural citizen.
Richard Meadows was born in the
latter part of 1807, and came ko Liv- ca
inagton parish while still a young go
man. Later he left this parish, and Ps
was gode for some years, when he re at
turned with a wife and .three boys.
Two of the boys, Moo and Charley,
are still living near Walker. The

Center Degrees on 77 Graduates.
Ruston.-The commencement exer
cises proper were held Friday night
at the Louisiana Industrial Institute.
E. L. Walker, representing the grad
uating class, made an address on
"Louisiana, Her Resources and Possi
bilities." The commencement ad
dress was delivered by Judge Wilson
of the Eighth district court. After
complimenting the school and speak
ing of its importance to the state, he
discussed the ultimate purposes of the
school system and the central idea
of the system by which it is to be
transmitted and diffused. Formation
of a sound public opinion by which
the people may be correctly guided
should result from education, and this
can be brought about only by the
training which is given by our educa
tional institutions.
President Keeney, in the absence of
Governor Hall and State Superintend
ent Harris, presented the diplomas to
the largest class ever graduated from
the school, being seventy-seven in,
number, the degree of bachelor of in
dustry being conferred upon them all.

M AAFONAVAL SEIIM oaSIrYERIfY cIWS MI KiL DIII WEEV
May Revolutionize Entire Naval Policy, "F
as England Has Made inquiries
Concerning the Panama
Canal Route.
Washington. - Keen interest has ho
been aroused in official circles at ah
Washington by a report reaching the st
state department that Great Britain
is contemplating establishing a great rk
naval base in the Bermuda Islands. ai
It is authoritatively stated that the
British government has made inquiry el
concerning the plans of the United tu
States for protection of the Panama he
canal routes, and it has been sug- de
gested that thias indicateS an inclina- Ed
tion to safeguard British shipping B.
through the isthmus. as is done in of
the Mediterranean. -no
Officials realise, that the problem be
raised is a tremendous one, involving th
as it may the very life of the Monroe he
doctrineq.nd marking, perhaps, a com- sp
plete revolution .in foreign naval pol- tic
icy I the Western Hemisphere, for co
expected that if Great Britain $1
changes hbr naval policy in American
Atlantic-l'iters, other European ns
tions pr liy will follow suit. While
these >hinges may be expected in the e
Aagtic waters and the West Indies, in
ofticials likewise realize that, with the th
opening of the canal, the United ba
States must contend with Japan for of
domination of the Pacific. i
The British royal navy abandoned its in
naval stations in this country about he
ten years ago, when the United States th
gave.up the idea of the constraction of in
the Nicaraguan aesal, and set about he
digging the big waterways across Pan- iu
ama, whose approaching oompletion el
bids fair to revolutionise international
relations.
Apart from its West Indian stations
the royal navy maintained stations at h4
Esquimault, B. C., and Halifax, N. 8. fc
There once whs a plan to strengthen m
the fortifications at sequimault over- t
looking the Strait of Juan do Paca in o
order to make that an important base tl
but both these statlons now are little t
more than recruiting stations for the t
royal navy. British troops were with
drawn from t. Luciae in the West In- t
dies in 100, and what oneo was a t
grand military station became only a•
commercial coaling station and is not 1i
today even a saluting port.

Opinion Given by Experts of Depart-. H
partment of Agriculture at Confer- m,
ence-Practice Fall Plowing. pl1
by
Washington.-Diversify crops, plant fob
hogs and clover, rush the cotton so
as to get the biggest part of crop in
ahead of the boll weevil, burn the r
stubble and practice fall plowing.
That is what the department of ag- so0
riculture experts told the senators pe
and representatives from the cotton de
states at the second boll weevil con- th'
ference at the department of agricul- idi
ture Monday. The conference was th
held to ascertain the views of the st
department on the proposal by Senator hii
E. D. Smith of South Carolina to
create a five-mile zone on the edge fo
of the boll weevil territory in which vii
no cotton shall be planted for a num
ber of years. The experts gave it as no
their opinion that such a zone would de
hem in the weevil. and., prevent a on
spread to new territory, but it would of
tie up 2,500,000 acres that might grow
cotton and cause an annual loss of wi
$105,000,000 to the cotton crop each' in
year. ar
The great trouble with this plan, it tb
was pointed out, is that all farmers
can not be kept from planting cotton e3
in the prescribed zone, and therefore at
the scheme wodld fail.. On the other el
I hand, agents showed the great work H
r of diversification already in progress a
in the' Soth. One pgent showed that si
s in 1910 there were eleven head of ta
t hogs to each farm in Louisiana and sa
s that the number is steadily increas- fa
t nag. An agent from Alabama told a
t how the Alabama farmers have gone
º- in for clover, showing that 1,100 farm- w
a er have planted clover this year. ti

Washington.-Harvey C. Stiles, the
*t horticultural expert who is arranging 01
* for government cooperation in the
matter of establishing a fibre indus
try in the lower Rio Orande section
of the state, Friday called the atten
otin of the department of agriculture
Sto the remarkable grove of 2,000 balm Df
trees at Las Palmas, below Browns- fl
ville. He encouraged the department
to take over that grove for a combita- k

a farm for the development of the Easter c
Slily and other use-tropieal plants
That section of Texas is the only c
part of the United States where the o

PRESIDENT ACCPETS RESIGNA- REC
TION AND APPOINTS FORMER
GOVERNOR LIND.
Inte
Washington Government Has Taken a
First Step in Dealing With the
Huerta Government-Not
to Lift Embargo.
rate
Washington-President Wilson Mon- full
day took the first step in the policy ly
through which he purposes to deal nue
with the Mexican situation. He for- coni
mally accepted the resignation of Am- coni
bassador Henry Lane Wilson. to take 15,
effect on October 14, and sent to the alsc
City of Mexico as his personal rep- also
resentative, but not accredited to the ana
Huerta government, former Governor rail
John Lind of Minnesota, a lifelong tiou
friend of Secretary Bryan. The un- A
derstanding is that when a stable on
government is established in Mexico, .sa
Mr. Lind formally will be named as
ambassador. bus
President Wilson and Secretary be I
Bryan had frequent conferences dur- rail
ing the day; Ambassador Wilson had the
a long talk with Mr. Bryan, and Chair- of
man Bacon of the senate foreign rela- the
tions committee discussed the situa- exp
tion with the president at the White pos
House. But, except for the announce- con
ment of Mr. Lind's mission, no ex- ene
planation of the policy to be pursued upc
by the American government was the
forthcoming. ear
The statement from Secretary Bryan the
reads:
"Ex-Governor John Lind of Minne- of
sota has been sent to Mexico as the tioi
personal representative of the presi- the
dent and adviser to the embassy in
the present situation. When the pres- yea
ident is ready to comnmunicate with abt
the Mexican authorities as to the re- rt
storation of peace he will make public ing
his views. wa
"Governor and Mrs. Lind departed ba,
for Mexico Monday by rail to proceed mil
via New Orleans or Galveston." ert
It became known that a further an- nei
nouncement would be made by Presi- me
dent Wilson in a few days, possibly dec
on the arrival of Mr. Lind in the City I
of Mexico. fer
It is said the president is observing yet
with keen interest the efforts of lead- oct
ing Mexicans to bring about peace spt
and will offer no suggestions until rej
these apparently prove futile. del
That Mr. Lind -will be empowered to ly
explain to all inquires the unalter- be
able opposition of the American gov- Ce4
ernment to the -recognition of the
Huerta government is expected to be
a factor which may ameliorate the 1
situation. Prominent Mexicans have
taken it on themselves to try to per. M
suade General Huerta to retire in
favor of another provisional exbcutive
acceptable to all factions.
Meanwhile arms and munitions of
war from the United States will con
tinue to be denied to the two warring de
foTes, and unless it Is apparent thatI
internal efforts to bring about peace i
have failed the United States will not t
offer its services as mediator.

REDUCTION WILL COST COM*
PANIES $26,000,000 A YEAR.
Interstate Commerce Commission Is
sues Order, Taking Effect on or
Before October 15, 1913.
Washington.-Reductions in express
rates which will cost the companies
hilly $26,000,000 a year, approximate
ly 16 per cent of their gross reve
nue, were ordered by the interstate
commerce commission Monday, to be
c(onme effective on or before October
15. 1913. Notable reforms in practice
also were ordered. The commission
also made public a lengthy report
analyzing the express business, its
railroad connection and the ramifica
tions of the parlel post.
As to the parcel post. and its effect
on the .express ,colllpaies, the report
"\With r.egard to the small package
business of ,he palrcel post, it should
he noted that it w ill be, carried on the
railroads of the country. So far as
the rail carriers are concerned, it is
of no consequence to thiem whether
they furnish rail transportation for the
express respondents herein or for the
postoffice department. The express
companies, moreover, will not experi
ence a gross loss of their earnings
upon these small parcel:, but only of
the net deficiencies between their
earnings heretofore and the cost to
them of furnishing terminal service
upon these parcels. The commission's
conclusion is that the establishment
of the parcel post is not a justifica
tion for any higher scale of rates than
the one here shown to be reasonable.
"The commission's order is for two
years only. That period will give
abundant opportunity to test these
rates and varying conditions amount
ing to a normal average. In no other
way can the absolutely proper rate
basis for respondents be finally deter
mined. Respondents are also at lib
erty at. any time to bring forward
new facts as a basis for a petition for
modification of this or any other or
der."
The decision of the commission, de
ferred as it has been for more than a
year, followed an investigation that
occupied nearly six years of hearings.
I special examinations of accounts and
reports covering in detail the various
details of the express business. Near
,ly a carload of books and papers have
been filed and are a part of the pro
c'eedings in this case.
