Says Mexico Is Not Responsible For What, the Rebels
Do and Thinks United States Had No Business
Communicating With Orozco United States
Officials Say It Gives No Renewed Cause
For Interference in Mexico. .
Washington. D. C. April 18. Presi
dent Madero's reply to acting: secre
tary Huntington Wilson's admonition
regarding the treatment of Amer
icans in Mexico was received at the
state department over night and prob
abl will be subnfitted to the cabinet
by Mr Taft and considered before any
answer is returned.
It cannot be said that minister Ca
iro's statement caused surprise, nor
lias it modified the diplomatic situ
ation. The note is regarded rather as
an attempt to relieve the (Mexican gov
ernment from financial liability for
: &tnages inflicted upon foreigners by i
tne rebels, than as an evidence of re
sentment against the actions of the
state department in reminding the
Mexicans of the international law to
v iid forelra residents in Mexico, or
ei those serving as volunteers on
side or tne other.
, e KeaiKWt for Intervention.
In the opinion of administration of
ficials the Mexican note has not ad
vanced any fresh reasons for inter
im ntion unless this disclaimer for re
sponsibility for the actions of the
rebels ma Be regarded as warranting
lo reign governments in considering
netiier tney might not be privileged
to take forcible, measures to Jrotect
t'en subjects and citizens where they

A feeling of uneasiness has Invaded

near have caused the rebels to send

A rail on the Mexico xvortn esiera
railroad, on the branch line which
runs to EI Paso, was taken up near
tbe bridge, and Thursday morning
when the train was to leave for El
Paso it was delayed a short time until
the rail was replaced. Juarez city of
ficials say that the taking of the rail
tras only a precaution, as a telenhone
call from El Paso had announced that
they should expect trouble from the
EI Paso side.
Col. Demetrio Ponce, assistant te
Gen. Pascual Osozco, was not at his
office Thursday morning and It was
announced that he was outside the city
with a scouting party to ascertain
what truth there was in the rumor
that federals are near.
Added to the rumor of federals In
the Juarez district comes a wild rumor
that Casas Grandes has been taken by
a number of Yaqul Indians who have
come from Sonora. . . 1

The Ballard Appropriation.
There is decided opposition to the
bill carrying an approximate appropri
ation of $10,000 for the office of the
attorney general, but this objection is
likely to react on Mr. Bullard himself.
Democrats, outside the legislature are
doing a considerable amount of grum
bling at this style of economy. Mr.
Bullard insists that tbe appropriation
is as small as it was possible to make
It. It was simply a question, he said, of
having the various items bunched or
passing a separate bill appropriating a
sufficient amount to pay tbe salary of
an attorney for the corporation com
mission. But there are some things
mighty hard to explain to an indignant
stituency: and , one of the hardest is
the necessity for an apparently extrav-
agant appropriation, so. even though
-- -, .a 1
measure is a just one and every
item a necessity, Mr. Bullard will have
considerable explaining to do when he
goes on the stump next fall.
May Hulld Executive Mansion.
In order that Arizona may not be be
hind any of the other states in dignity
and eclat. 9 bill has been Introduced
in the hous- providing for an appropri
ation of '?:j,000 for the purpose of
building an executive mansion. Of
course it is realized that not much oi
a "mansion" could be built for that
sum, especially when It is considered
that a considerable part of it would
have to be used for paying for the
ground: but, as pointed out. it would at
least exempt the chief executive from
the necessity of paying rent or hotel
bills, and that is something. But even
the little matter of $15,000, which looks
like a mere bagatelle in the richer and
more populous states. Is no small met-

fact, veto it If It should get to him.
Already the state is about $65,000 be
hind in the matter of finances, as com
pared with this time last year; and the
expenses, because of statehood, will be
fully $200,000 a year greater than they
hae been heretofore. So. it is not dif
ficult to understand that appropria
tions, even of the $15,000 size, are not
greatly pleasing to the taxpayers.
There is another matter which the
governor, however, probably would nev
er consider. If they do hold an election
this fall, he cannot hope to serve more
than three years all told; and the gov
ernor's residence, if one is authorized,
would hardly be finished until after
the close of his second term. So, in any
event, it would not do Gov. Hunt any
good. But. of course, as said already.
this matter Is not supposed to enter
into the gubernatorial corslderatlon.
Health bills have not all shared the I
same fate the past day or so in the
legislature. The Worsley bill forbid- '
ding the employment of tubercular
teachers In the nubile schools has been
recommended for passage; but the Da
vis bill, regulating the sale of decrepit
eggs and ancient butter, is marked for
execution In other words, it has been
recommended for Indefinite postpone
ment. A bill granting to farmers the right
to dispose of meat from cattle grown
and slaughtered by themselves, without
the pavment of a license fee, will be
come a law In all probability. This bill
is aimed at the local "meat trust."
which is a sure enough combination
and a most effective one, as every
householder has reason to know.

Wireless Aboard the Recue Ship Carpathia Fails te
Send Any Tidings of What Occurred on Board the
Giant Ocean Liner After Iceberg Was Struck;
No Further News of Any More Persons Be
ing Rescued by Any Other Vessel.
Kew York, X. Y., April 18. The following balletia was made public fey the
White Star Hae shortly after 3 oclock this aftemooa:
"Carpathia due at Sandy Hook 9 p.m. Should dock at 11 p. m." V
Gea. Henry, surveyor of the port of Hew York, said this aoraing hat the
Carpathia would sot dock aatil 1 oclock Friday moraiag.
Bearing the survivors of the sunken steamship Titanic, the Carpathia was
making her way slowly toward New York today, groping through the fog, her
wireless as silent as that of the stricken vessel, a small part of whose human
cargo she carries.
Wireless messages bombarded the Carpathia all last sight and today, bat
with little results. Even a message from president Taft asking for sews of ais
aide, Maj. Butt, remained unanswered, and the indications are that no details ot
the disaster will be known until the Carpathia reaches port.
The Sagaponack, Long Island, -wireless station reports that the CarpaUua's
wireless operator is "all in." The Sagaponack station says efforts will be made
to put two fresh wireless operators on board from a tug.
Judging from the nature of the few messages from the survivors, the inference
is that mast of them are unaware of the awful tragedy that took place aboard
the Titanic after she was abandoned. Thus many wives are ignorant that their
husbands have perished and are hoping they were picked up by passing liners, which
subsequently rendered service similar te that of the Carpathia. They will not get
the awful news until they land here.
The Carpathia with SS of the shlp- .
wrecaeu survivors 01 uw u
Titanic, was off Nantucket light ship,
1 miles from New York, at 5:65
oclock this morning. The wireless re
port that there are only 705 survivors

be learned, baa come from the Car
pathia within the last 24 hours, giving
the exact number of shipwrecked per

at the White Star line offices. It li
probable that the number of those
perished totals 1322 souls.

The Carpathia has sent ashore the
names of 125 third class passengers and
has requested the White Star line to
send a ship's officer and 14 sailors on
two tugs to take charge of 13 Titanic

indicate that only 13 life boats had
