APPEAL MADE
10 PATIfIOTS
Mexican Minister Seeks to Unite
All Factions for Defense of
Motherland
HAVE MADEROS BEEN WON
OVER TO DIAZ STANDARD
Ambassador Limantour Declares
That if Americans Will Take
Care of Smuggling, His Gov
ernment Will Do the Rest
NEW TORK, March 14. —Before
Senar De La Harm departed for i
Washington today he gave out proofs '
of an article to appear in the Inde- j
pendent tomorrow on "The Situation ]
In Mexico," urging all countrymen'
regardless of "all divisions of party,
all differences between man" to recall
the "sacred Interests of our country"
and "to work together for progress, \
true democracy and the best develop
ment of the motherland."
The ambassador penned this ap
peal only last night. After the first
shock of surprise In the United States
and of alarm and distrust in Mexico
caused by the dispatch of 20.000
American troops to the frontier, there
followed some remarkable statements
and interviews. Underneath this cur
rent ran a deeper tide of sympathy
between countrymen who might be
at odds but were still countrymen.
It Means War
"Intervention means war," said
Benor Limantour, minister of finance
in so many words. And Dr. Fran
cisco Vasquez Gomez, head of the
insurgent junta said: "The moment
there 1s interveintion there will
cease to be an insurrection. Both
sides will make common cause against
a common enemy." In short it be
came plain that the two streams of
tendency were flowing to a junction.
On one side there apparently was a
disposition on the part of Insurgents
-to open negotiations with represen
tatives of the Mexican administration :
here. On the other there Is a growing
understanding between the Mexican
government and the United States. ■ j
Stop Smuggling
Virtually Limantour is willing to
have It understood that If the United
States will take care of smuggling,
his government will take care of the j
insurrectos. He holds out the latch |
•tring to Insurgents with the promise
of reform and calls Washington to j
account in the share Americans have \
taken in financing and leading the
revolution. Secretary of War Dick-1
lnson denies he has been in commu- '
nlcation with the Maderos and says
his presence in New York has noth
ing to do with the Mexican situation.
The general Impression Is that the
Maderos have been won over by the
Mexican government and they them
selves fear the success of the insur
rectos. All they want they say Is an
honest administration of the consti
tution.

"Whereas, Thomas E. Grady hag

court of the State of Washington, in
and for the county of Yakima, under
and by virtue of the provisions of an
act of the legislature of the State
of Washington, approved March 13,

ernor of the State of Washington, do

CONGRESSMAN CLARK
SAYS HE'S AVAILABLE
Says Democrats Might Go Farthet
and Fare Worse for
Candidate
CHICAGO, March 14.—Congressman
Champ Clark, the coming speaker of
the house of representatives, amended
the saying "Go west, young man" to
"Go south, young man." Clark headed
off the newspapermen who sought to
ask questions pertaining to other mat
ters and insisted they should first
"learn something" about the South
Land.
i After discoursing on the advantages
of the south, Clark was Induced to
admit "that he would make a good
presidential candidate." He said:
"Well, the democratic party might go
farther and fare worse and I think
it will."
He was willing to discuss all sub-
I jects except woman suffrage and the
Lorimer case. Of the former, he said
he knew when to let well enough
alone. He prophesied victory for the
reciprocity measure and said of the
tariff, "we can get by Taft with few
schedules we could never get past with
whole bills."
Clark intimated that if the republi
cans in the next house did not like
the committee appointments they
could go hang for all the good it
would do them. Only he said it this
way: "Those who don't like the ap
pointments can take advantage of the
great American privilege of cussing.''
Clark lectured tonight at I local
church. He insisted nn calling it a
"lecture" saying: "A speech is where
you talk for nothing, you get paid
for a lecture."

ULTIMATUM SENT
BY RUSSIANS TELLS
CHINA THEIR DECREE
PEKIN, March I».—Russian Min
ister M. Korotovetz, delivered Rus
sia's ultimatum to the Chinese foreign
board this afternoon. It caused much
surprise among officials who seemed
not to realize the gravity of the
crisis. Korostovetz last week ror a
second time requested permission on j
behalf of his government to estaDlian
quarantine stations along the Amur
and elsewhere on the frontier.
China viewed this as an Infringe-'
ment on her integrity and the Rus
sian minister notified them that his
reply would be given today. In the
meantime. Korostovetz was requested
to obtain further explanation from
St. Petersburg, whereupon the Rus
sian government evidently decided
there was no further use In parleying.
SECURE SHADE TREES
AS IMPROVEMENTS
Plan to Include in the Regular
Estimates for Sidewalks
and Curbing
City Engineer Doolittle learned from]
the city attorney yesterday that it Is
possible for property owners, in or
dering improvements, to include In
them shade trees to be placed along
the curbing. At the meeting Monday
evening of the Boulevard Addition Im
provement club, the city engineer took
up with them the matter of securing
walks and curbing. He was asked to
prepare figures to present at the next
meeting of the city council and then
the matter of shade trees, was dis
cussed.
Mr. Doolittle was not aware that
such improvements could be Contract
ed and paid for as were Sidewalks
| and paving. It is probable that this
I Improvement will be included in the
| resolution of Intention to be pre
| sented to the council. The people of
the Boulevard addition feel that this
: will be a great help in improving th*
city and Mr. Doolittle believes that
!t Is a great step forward In the work

originally suggested ny the lady who
had that work entrusted to her. The
decision Is based on dates covering
the past ten years and having refer
ence to peach and apple blossom sea
son which data was furnished by A.
T. Kichardson of Fruitvale. J. T.

SHOE SHOP WORKING
WITH PROPER VIGOR
Dan Hackett's Historic Building
Moves Again and Again Brick
Building Replaces It
Dan Hackett's shoe shop is moving
again. his means another brick
building for tho city. Whenever Dan
Hackett's shoe shop leaves a site and
takes a new one that abandoned is
soon occupied by a brick structure
This is fact and history. But a few
j years ago the little wooden building,
with Its one room, where Mr. Hack
ett piles his trade as a cordwalner,
seated on his thron«r of leather, was I
the only business structure on the
j west side of the city if those abut
ting on the Northern Pacific right of
way be excluded. It occupied the
site where the West Side saloon was
erected and which has now become
the headquarters of the street rail- |
way company. To make room for
■ that building the shop was moved
j across Yakima avenue to the oppo
l site corner from which it was ejected
to make way for the Bio Grande.
Then It moved further west and for
■ year was at rest until someone de
cided to erect the Suvov hotel, when
It moved again, to Fifth nnd Yakima
avenues. It has been there for a
year but. like the cork leg, "Is up
and oft aaaln" this time Is moving
south, to fhe rear of that lot to
make way for a. brick building to
be erected on the avenue corner.
Those who own- property south of the
avenue will be dellerhted to see the
little shoe shop moving In their di
rection for. If there Is any value.
In the lessons of hlstorv. It becomes
a certainty that the brick structures
will follow In a year.
It would nay the West Side Im
provement association to purchase
the Dan Hackett shoe shop and
move it. once a year
COLONIST TRAVEL IS
! UNUSUALLY HEAVY
Trains From the East Are Carry
ing Extra Sleepers and Are
Filled With Travelers
Northern Pacific trains through
1 North Yakima are earrvlng score! of
easterners to the west side of the
state. The colonist rates are now
effective and the trains are carrying
extra sleepers and running behind
time as a consequence. Some of the
travelers left the train at North Yak
ima but practically all went through
to the sound, having purchaaed tlck
! ets good for that distance and hav
i ing the Intention of seeing the sound
'cities before definitely locating. A
| number of those who went Deyond
i this city expressed their Intention of
'returning. It is the belief of railroad"
1 people that the westward movement
!of population for the next few week!
will eclipse anything previously !een
! and this seems altogether reasonable
!as the growth of this country alone
has added Immensely to the drawing
power
Summer tourist rates from the east
following the spring colonist rates
now In effect, and for Pacific coast
points, will be effective June 1 to
September 30. with a return limit to
October 31 and good for stopovers at
all important po'nts, and allowing
returns by variable routes. The rate
from St. Paul will be '$60.00; Bt.
Louis. $70 00. Rates from further
east will be the same as those of last
year and it is expected that a large
number of people will take advan-*
tage of them.
