TAFT READY TO
DEFEND SEEF
From Any Attacks Because of the
Attitude He Has Assumed in
the Trouble in Mexico
SITUATION IS CLEARED
IS OFFICIAL REPORT
There Are in Evidence No Signs
of the Cessation of Hostilities
and Insurrectionists Are Disap
pointed
WASHINGTON, D. C, March 21.—
The Mexican situation cleared con
siderably today. The attitude of the
United States has been plain and
there need no longer be any doubt,
It was said by administration officials,
regarding the president's policy. Taft
has announced he will do all possible
to maintain friendly relations with
Mexico and the United States has no
Intention to Interfere in internal af
fairs in that country and the presi
dent will not recommend any interfer
ence to congress unless circumstances
permit no other possible course.
Slaughter Was Feared
American troops were sent to the
Mexican border on the strength of re
ports that conditions In Mexico ap
proached chaos ajid that any time
American lives might be jeopardized.
There will be no move toward the
Mexican border unless outrages an
flagrant as to call for the presence
of a protecting power occur. Erven
than the Dresldent would not think ,
of acting without the conesnt of con
gress
President's Power Limited
The limit of the president's nower
to commit an act which might be
Interpreted as an act of war Is so well
defined that Taft has been much
amused at the many reports as to
what he proposed to do with the
army after It was mobilized. The
president said that political condi
tions had not entered Into the opera
tions from any possible angle. Taft
Is fully aware that an attack Is to
be made upon him In congress by
some of the democrats, but.he said
he is prepared to defend his course
from every point of view.
Hostilities Continue
MEXICO CITY. March 21—Thtrty
slx hours after the arrival of Min
ister Limantour, the man heralded
as the one that should bring peace
to Mexico there was evident tonight
no sign of any cessation of hostilities.
Madero's forces In the north were ac
tively carrying out their campaign
and the war department had not re
scinded any of Its orders for apposi
tion
Limantour has held several con
versations with President Diaz since
his return but he has made no an-
nouncements. There Is little hope of
peace unless the government agrees
to the provisions for another nation
al election and to permit the rebels
to retain their arms while carrying
out the truce. Many entirely loyal to
the federal government believe this
is true. Diaz shows a disposition to
alter the conditions.
Insurroc-tos Disappointed
EL PASO. March 21.—The opinion
among Mexican lnsurrecto leaders
over the Interview at Mexico City to
day of Senor Limantour is about
squally divided between keen disap
pointment and hope that Limantour
has still some plans which he has
not been at liberty to make public.
One thing the Insurrectos declared
that they would not alter Is that they
will not lay down their arms during
peace negotia ions. lnsurrecto lead
ers have made no attempt to conceal
their disappointment
MYSTERIOUS SUICIDE
REPORTED TO POLICE
Man Supposed to Be Tom Smitz
Kills Himself at Port Ludlow
—May Live Here
The police of North Yakima know
nothing of the mysterious suicide of
a man named Tom Smitz at Port
Ludlow. A note book found on the
"body of the man contains several
entries made in North Yakima and
it was supposed he might be known
here. A dispatch from Port Ludlow
states that a description had been
telegraphed to the police here, but
they have not received It.
March 10 a well dressed man, bear
ing no outward indications of being
a laborer, arrived at Port Ludlow and
applied for work. He registered at
the hotel as Tom Smitz of Port
Blakely and claimed to be a tallyman
by trade. Not receiving immediate
employment, he went to drinking, and
was discovered in his room Saturday
with a bullet in his brain. Prior to
killing himself the man had removed
all identification marks from his cloth
ing and effects. Cornor Delgarno Is
investigating.
Henry K. Goldberg, who has been
sojourning at Shlpherd's Springs, on
the Columbia for the past two weeks,
Is expected to arrive at home In a
week or so.

SAVING DAYLIGHT
MOVEMENT GROWS
Approval Is Given to the Plan By
a Large Number of People of
Various Business Interests
The more it is discussed the more
popular becomes the proposition to
:urn forward the clocks one hour dur
ng the summer months. The officials
nf the street railway company have
Slven the subject the seal of their ap
proval, bankers and professional men
have declared It to be a good thing,
and the people generally seem ready
to have It tried.
If put Into effect It will be necessary
to put up many signs and otherswise
advertise the matter so that strangers
and others not aware of the change
may take notice and not miss trains
on the railroads, which of course will
not be able to change their time cards
to conform to the local clocks.
Federal Regulations
The United States land office and
the postoffice would not be able to
join in the movement, owing to the
fact that Uncle Sam has certain hours
and times to do things to which all
public servants must conform.
By going to work one hour earlier
in the morning storekeepers and
clerks, bankers and bookkeepers, city
officials and workingmen generally
would get their work done in time to
have an extra hour In the evening for
driving, automobWing, walking, at
tending the games of the baseball
twilight league, etc., and would thus
escupe one of the warm working hours
of the day.
Official action will probably be ta
ken so that the plan can be put Into
operation by April 1. If not feasible
to turn the hands forward an hour,
nn attempt will be made to have the
people rise and begin work an hour
earlier.

MIA TOM
FAMOUS DOG
Owner Carried License and Tag
in His Pocket and the Dog
Catcher Got the Animal
ONCE SAVED 11 LIVES
IN A BURNING BUILDING
Now When Old, Almost Blind
and Toothless, He May Be Shot
Unless His Owner Procures His
Release Within 48 Hours
A dog that saved eleven lives is*
likely to lose his own. because he did
not wear on his collar the license
tag, which reposed In the pocket of
the owner, with the license, which
had been procured March 2. 1911.
The dog Is the property of W. J.
Prince, who lives in Fatrvlew. just
outside the city limits. There he has
a number of dogs, but Yakima Tom,
the canine life saver, Is the only one
that comes Into the city with hla
owner. ' The dog, which Is old and
has no teeth and only one eye, was
captured by the poundmaster as the
pair were walking down East Yakima
avenue Tuesday afternoon. Despite
•the fact that Prince showed the
license and tag, which bears the num
ber 88. the dog catcher carried away
the dog and said Prince would have
to pay $3.00 to get him out again.
It was in May 26, 1906, Mr. Prince
says, that the dog saved eleven out of
thirteen lives In the Pacific Chop
house, which stood on the site of the
Pry drug store on East Yakima ave
nue. The building caught fire in the
night aad Yakima Tom alarmed each
boarder by barking at his door. All
got out, but three died from their

GUESTS HEAR PROGRAM
AT WOMAN'S CLUB
Feature of the Afternoon Is Orig
inal Story By Mrs. F. M. Ros
siter Which Was Prepared for
Anniversary Luncheon
Yesterday was guest clay at the Wo
man's club and a number of visitors
listened to the program for the day
which was given over to several pa
pers on art. Miss Lucy Nichols, who
was required to describe some English
masterpiece, chose Turner's "The
Temeraire," giving a vivid description
of the famous paintings and an Inter
esting outline of Turner's life and his
distinctive art charactertistlcs.
Modern Mosiaos
Mrs. John W. Kelly had for sub
ject "Moslacs." She told how tho
ancient and once popular art had
been revived of late, some of the finest
specimens of modern work being in
the Chicago -public library and in the
Marshall & Field's store of that city.
Mrs. Kelly read a description of these
masterpieces, and gave a brief Idea of
the way In which the cubes of marble,
glass and shell nre put together.
Mrs. Bernard Wilkinson read a very
interesting paper on "Great Painters of
Women,"' touching upon most of the
famous portrait painters up to the
time of the moderns. She frankly ad
mitted that the paper was largely
made up from Philip Hale's book on
the subject, but her presentation had
not at all the effect of a lot of ex
cerpts. Illustrating her paper with
prints of some of the best known
women pictures, Including the "Mona
Lisa, Romney's "Parson's Daughter,"
"The Countess Potoschka," Hogarth's
"Shrimp Girl," Gainsborough's "Mrs.
Slddons," Whistler's "Portrait of His
Mothers," and others, Mrs. Wilkin
son traced the rise of portraiture
from the time of Leonardo, to the
present when It Is giving way to
photography.
Smiles Included
A number of interesting paragraphs
were given to a discussion of smiles.
Da Vinci borrowed his smile, she
said, Including the baffling one of
Madonna Lisa, from Verrochlo, though
he used It Incomparably bettor. She
also stated with regret the well known
fact that women do not want to bo
painted as they really are, but as
they would like to bo and accused
Van Dyke, who recognized and con
formed to this frailty, of responsibility
for many of the Insincerities of the
great English portrait painters. While
Velasquez, she said, might justly be
said to have set the style for modern
portraiture, having a marked Influence
on Sargent, the influence and the col
oring of Rubens was still greater
than that of the Spanish painter.
The Impress of five great portrait ar
tists, Rubens, Rembrandt, Veslasquez,
Hals and Van Dyke, was npparent,
she said, on Reynolds, Romney and
Gainsborough, but that English por
traiture derived more directly from
Van Dyke.
Original Story
Mrs. O. W. Elder sang two num
bers delightfully and the afternoon
closed with the reading of nn original
story, "The Valley of the O. R." by
Mrs, F. M. Hosslter. This story was
one planned for the anniversary day
which was postponed this year.
