DOES NOT KNOW WHEN
CHANGE IS TO BE MADE
A LITTLE, rotund man in a light
gray Norfolk suit walked slowly
back and forth along the concrete
platform of the union station Tuesday
evening about 8:38 o'clock. Near him
a switch engine was noisily shunting
a luxurious private car to a convenient
point on a nearby track. The little
man's eyes, which were bright and
observant, watched the movement with
rather impatient interest.
The man was Julius Kruttschnitt
chairman of the board of directors of
all the Southern Pacific lines. With a
grinding of brakes, the private car
finally came to a stop and the stout
little man walked slowly toward it
"See Local Officials," He Says.
"I have no idea as to when the G.
H & S. A. railway yards will be moved
from EJ Paso to Alfalfa siding, eight
miles below the ctiy." he said, in reply
to a question by a Herald man. "In
fact, I don't know whether there is
any such intention at all," he added.
' Competent local officials are handling
the matter and you will have to see
them for the information you want."
He spoke deliberately and slowly.
It was suggested that local officials
are noncommunicatlve regarding the
matter. A twinkle of amusement shone
In Mr. Kruttschnitt's eyes, but no furth
er reply on the subject was forth
coming. Money Scarcity Affects Operations.
"Of course, the present condition of
the money market affects us," he re
plied in answer to another question.
" Railroads have to have money all the
time, and when it is scarce, why, we
must economize like all other branches
of business. Passenger travel over
our lines at present is not as heavy as
usual at this time of the year."

o'clock Tuesday. With him were W.

A railway; G. S Waid. general man
ager of the G. H ; and C. K. Iunlap,
traffic manager of the road. These of
ficials accompanied him here from
Houston, to which place they returned
earlv Tuesday morning. R. M. Hoover,
superintendent of the Kl Paso division
of the G. H., met the party Monday
morning at Del Rio and came on to El
Rain Damages Road and Cotton.
"The people of this section of the
great state of Texas have not the re
motest conception of the bad weather j
have just experienced. In fact it is
one of the greatest rain storms ever j
experienced in those sections," said
traffic manager C. K. Dunlap.
"The actual monetary loss and dam
age was not so great as was the in
terference with railroad traffic"- he
said. "The moving of cotton was slow,
which had a tendency to retard the
cotton market and the storms reduced
the prrade of cotton. All of the mem
bers of our party surely appreciate the j
beautiful Kl Paso sunshine. I am per- i
sonally greatly impressed With the bus

representative Robt J. Bulkley, or
Ohio, came over from Washington to
present their views at the national con

Academy of Political Science. Repre

house committee on banking and cur

Bulkley, "seems to have been written

I Poiret; Parisian Modiste,
Discovers that "Art for
Art's Sake" Gets Money.
SAYS WOMEN MUST
(By Frederic J. Hnskln.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct 14. The
Parisian modiste has found the
philosopher's stone. He has
solved the riddle that confounded the
alchemists through a thousand years
and more. He forsook the realm of
physics for that of psychology and
discovered there that by pretending to
scorn the gold he most desired, and
by simulating a worship of art for
art's sake, he could make purses yawn
not only in his beloved Paris, but in
New York and Buenos Aires, in Chi
cago and Havana, in St Petersburg,
Russia, and St Petersburg, Florida.
He would be rash, in deed, who would
attempt to assign a p03t of preemi
nence to any particular one of the
score of men and women who dominate
the business of creating fashions in
the French capital. But for this one
year, largely on account of the influ
ence of "Le Minaret," Paul Poiret un
doubtedly is most talked about. How
he despises money for money's sake
and loves art for art's sake he tells,
himself. He came to the United States
last month, but not on a business trip
oh, no! He came for the purpose of
uplifting the artistry of American cos
tuming. Wouldn't Receive Reporters at First.
When he arrived in" New York and
took up his abode in a fashionable
hotel he was beseiged by reporters and
interviewers, representing not only
the regular journals, but of vastly
more importance to the trade, the tech
nical and business papers devoted to
women's "wear. But he did not receive
the reporters not then. The stage
was not set It was the second day
before his doors were thrown open.
The room in which he then received
the representatives of the newspa
pers was decorated to correspond with
the Poiret studio in Paris, the artistic
note being accented in groups of mag
nificent sofa pillows, in gold and silver
tissues and metal brocades, thrown
In oriental fashion upon the
floor. Under them was '"a typical
Poiret rug" in the vivid but blending
colors dominant in this year's'jnodes.

rose design, formed a background, and
placed about the room were huge clus

HEROISM SHOWN BY
THE MEN PASSENGERS
AVRE, France. Oct 14. La Tou-
ralne, of the French line, second
of the rescue ships which fig
ured in the Volturno disaster to reach
port, arrived at Havre this morning.
La Touralne had 42 survivors on board.
On the forward deck of the La Tou
ralne "when she arrived at the quay
was a group of eight children from
three to 12 years old, who had been
rescued from the "Volturno and whose
parents either had perished or were
aboard other rescuing steamers.
First Lieut Izenlc, or the La Tou
raine, told of the work of rescue
It "was 8:30 oclock on Thursday morn
Ingr' he 3aid, "when we received the
first wireless message that the Vol
turno was burning. At that time we
were 200 miles away. AVe reached the
Volturno at 9 oclock in the evening
and found 10 other steamers already
on the scene. Heavy smoke was
streaming away from the forward
hatches of the Volturno. whose passen
gers had assembled in the after part of
the ship. The women and children had
been placed farthest from the fire,
while the men formed a line nearest to
the point of danger."
"Nothing But a Torch."
What followed after the arrival of
La Touraine in the vicinity of the Vol
turno is related in a detailed report
sent by Capt. Caussin to the French
Trans-Atlantic company. He says:
"The forward part of the Volturno
looked to me like an incandescent bra
zier. "As the sea was beginning to mod
erate. I thought of putting out boats,
but the opinion of all my officers was
against the lowering of the lifeboats,

FEW BOATS ABLE TO
REACH THE VOLTURNO
Oil Poured en "Waters by Tank Ship
Facilitates Rescues Front
Liverpool, England, Oct 14. When the
steamship Carmania anchored here,
captain Barr told newspaper men his
story of the Volturno rescue. He said
that when he rrhpil th. Vfiltnrm orl
I saw that the burning vessel was m
sore straits he lowered a boat feeling
that he must do so, although it seemed
an almost hopeless thing to do. He de
clared that his other boat crews were
anxious to make the dangerous attempt
to reach the Volturno, but that He was
exceedingly glad he did not send them
as It was only through the splendid
seamanship of the officer in charge
that the boat launched "was placed on
board again after a fruitless effort to
reach the burning ship.
Mr. Mansfield, of New York, a pass
enger on the Carmania said:
"The people on board the Volturno
seemed to be naralvzed and helnles!.
They made no effort to seize the lines
of the rafts thrown to them. I saw
one man kiss his wife and children
and throw them overboard. He jumped
after them. They were seen for only a
moment and then disappeared together.
It was an awful sight to see the ship
burning with so many people on board.
The fire is believed to have started
in cottonseed oil in the cargo."
Sees No Panic.
T. W. Duller, of New York, in describ
ing how the passengers were saved
said that ropes were cast from the
lifeboats to the Volturno and the pas
sengers were made fast to these and
swung overboard. He continued:
"I saw no panic. The passengers of
the Volturno were all wearing life
belts and seemed to be quiet I saw
two boats floating bottom up."
i-our uii on Waves
"I will be up with the milk in the
morning," was the cheerful reply radio
graphed by commander Harwood. of
the Anglo-American oil steamer Nar
ragansett, to the Carmania's call for
help. As soon as captain Barr, of the
Cunard steamer, realized the situa
tion he told the Marconi operator on
board the Carmania to get in touch
with the oil steamer, as an abundant
supply of oil seemed to be the onlv
means of subduing the violence of
the seas and of facilitating tho rescue
operations. The Carmania qulcklv
picked up the oil ship and received the
hearty response quoted.
True to his word, the skipper of the
Narragansett brought his steamer on
to the scene early on Friday morning
and immediately sluiced hundreds of
tons of oil on to the waves.

Dispatch of Warships to
Mexico Is So Interpreted
DEPUTIES NOT IN
DANGER, SAYS HUERTA
WASHINGTON, D. O, Oct. 14. 4
Germany's action In dispatch
in a warship to Mexican
waters and the possibility of like action,
by other European powers, which, may
force a crisis for the Huerta govern
ment commanded first attention "when
president Wilson and his entire cabinet
met today to dlscnss the Mexican situ
ation. Deputies "Sot In Danger.
Advices from Mexico City indicated.
that the Mexican deputies, for whoso
safety the American government had'
made representations, "were still in jail.,
but, according to Huerta, in no danger.
Favors More Battleshlpa.
The first object of the cabinet meet
ing, the first session of the president's
advisers since last June, was to take
up the three battleship building pro-t
gram to put the United States back In.

before the last congress cue the plans
to one snip.
President Wilson and secretary' Dan

three battleship program for this year's
naval appropriation bill and a two ship
Approves of Germany's Action.
Germany's decision to dispatch a
warship to Mexican waters attracted
wide attention in official circles here.
No intimation had been received hera
of Germany's decision and president.
Wilson was informed only by press dls
patches of the action.
It was apparent that the Washington,
government was not displeased. Tha
sending of a German -warship Is tax
line with the policy of other Eropean
governments which have had vessels
cruising off the Mexican coasts during
critical moments of Mexico's internal
May Repudiate Recognition.
Significance was attached to the ac
tion by official Washington, however,
because it was accepted as indicating
that European powers which, previous
ly had recognized the Huerta govern
mwt among which were Germany and
Grisat Britain 'now saw evidences of
Huerta's inability to dominate the sit
uation. Latest advices to Washington are to
the effect that the British government
is deeply concerned over Its recogni
tion of Huerta and it Is even declared
reliably that king George and queen
Mary have taken a personal interest in
the situation -with a view to measures
that would support the policy of tha
United States. It is reported that
Great Britain at the first opportunity
will repudiate the recognition and that
failure of the Huerta administration to
hold a constitutional election on Octo
ber 26 probably would be held as suffi
Guard Against Extremes.
While the American war vessels ia
Mexican waters outnumber the foreign
ships and will render anv aid not only
to Americans but all foreigners m
cases of emergency, it Is thought by
the Washington authorities, the send
ing of a German vessel, immediately
after the arrest of the deputies may
have a sobering effect on provisional
president Huerta and may prevent hlra
from going to further extremes.
