NO DEVELOPMENTS IN MEXICAN SITUATION. Messages Received Yesterday Related Only to Routine Matters. Washington, Aug. 31. Secretary of State Bryan upon his return today from a short lecture, trip announced that nothing had been received at the state department from Mexico City to cause any alarm or to change the dip lomatic situation . that exists ' between this, government and the provisional government in Mexico City. The secretary remained at his home all day, keeping in touch with the state department by telephone, and was gJad of the opportunity to get a rest. A few messages were received fro mthe em bassy at Mexico City relating to rou tine developments, such as supplying Americans with means to leave Mex ico, and a brief message came from the special American envoy,. John Lind, at Vera Cruz. Mr. Lind,. it was reasserted, would remain in Vera Cruz tomorrow, at least, so far as administration officials here had any knowledge of his plans. That the administration still Is con tent to wait for expected hopeful de velopments is apparent on every hand, President Wilson planning to remain in Concord, N. H., over Labor day, nothing having arisen to demand his immediate return to Washington. Reports of new orders for mobiliza tion of troops in Mexico by the pro visional authorities caused no excite ment in offlcta.1 circles here. At th war and navy departments officers were on duty all day, but no reports from the Mexic-an border were receiv ed regarding attempts to smuggle arms into Mexico in violation of the strict neutrality order from President Wil son. The administration. It was reported, was encouraged by statements ema nating from Mexico City which give strong indication that the provisional authorities do not regard negotiations with the United States at an end, and that they are expecting to hear further from the American confidential agent. HALE MAY' HAVE FACTS. President's Representative to Arrive from Mexico This Week. Vera Cruz, Aug. 31. Dr. William Bayard Hale, who is now on his way to Washington, and should arrive there on Tuesday or Wednesday, is expected to place before President Wilson and Secretary of State Bryan Important facts in the Mexican situa tion which have had a bearing on the negotiations between the two coun tries. The president's personal repre sentative, John Lind, is still awaiting instructions from Washington, but so far he has not received any indication fropa the Mexican government that it would be willing to make more conces sions to the American demands. It was considered not improbable that For eign Minister ' Gamboa's explanation that General Huerta could not Become a candidate for the presidency at the next elections because of the constitu tional amendment made during the Madero administration, might be con strued by the American representatives as an assurance that he would with draw definitely from the executive power after October at the latest, but Mr. Lind is fully cognizant that the Mexican constitution does not prevent General Huerta from resigning and thus rendering himself eligible for the presidency. Mr. Lind is also well in formed regarding the editorials in the Mexican newspapers, since the ex change of notes, in which is suggested the necessity of General Huerta ac cepting such candidacy. The announcement that General Felix Diaz may return in time to make a fight for election offers some hope of a settlement, but it is generally re garded as doubtful that, the election of General Diaz or any other man in whose choice the rebels do not join would go far toward restoring peace in Mexico. A large number of Americans have arrived from the interior with the idea that financial aid is to be given to all Americans for the asking, and not a few of them were disappointed, and some indignant, when they were forced to answer the consul's questions as to whether they had enough money to pay their own expenses. The foreign population of Vera Cruz has increased greatly since the warning from Wash ington, and unless some vessel takes off 6 portion of them within a day or two Consul Canada will have to make special provision for their care.

Panama, Aug. 81. The last remain ing barrier at the Pacific end of the Panama canal was blown up by dyna mite this morning. It was an intense ly interesting spectacle. At exactly .ju o clock an electric switch was turned on and a moment later the 1,500 spectators, including the Shrin- ers visiting here from the United States and the officers of the British cruiser Xew Zeaand, were rewarded by a wonderful sight. Hundreds of tons of mud and stones were thrown high in the air; there they""hung sus pended "and then fell back, as the thun derous roar of the explosion re-echoed in the nearby hills. 20 Tons of Dynamite Used. About twenty long tons, equal to 44,800 pounds of 45 per cent, dyna mite, constituted the blast, which was one of the largest ever set off in the canal. The charge, which was planted in 541 holes at an average depth of 30 feet, tore a big gap in the barrier, but not to a sufficient depth to permit the water to flow through, as the sea level channel was at lower tide. ; , Final Breaking of Barrier. . Kqually interesting as the explosion was the actual breaking of the bar rier this afternoon, the tide creeping steadily up until at 1.35 o'clock it was level with the top of the gap. A workman seized a ahovel and made a small trench through which a rill of water trickled. Gradually it wid enied, until an hour later a raging tor rent, with a 35 foot fall, poured through an opening 400 feet wide into that part of the canal between Gamboa dike and Miraflores locks, which had previously been exeavated by steam shovels, Cut 5,000 Feet Long, This-cut, which-is 5,000 feet long, 500 feet wide and 41 feet deep, below mean sea level, was entirely filled by 3 o'clock when the waters of the -Pacific laved for the first time the solid masonry -of the Miraflores leeks. Work oh Atlantic End Tomorrow. Dredges passed tonight through the opening, and In a few days the last vestiges of ths barrlsr will bo removed. establishing a praetleally eemtpleted channel at the Pacific end, Tht dredges will begin on September 2 to, remove the last barrier of the Aclan--tic channel. When this work is -complished ships may navigate to the locks at both ends. WIRELESS GREETING TO KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS President of English Benedictines Re sponds to Welcoming Message. New York.

This Pointed Out by the New York Medical Journal. New York, Aug. 31. Serious differ ences have arisen between the medical profession and the legislators of va rious states a sto the interpretation of practical" eugenics, in fact, public ex pression of medical opinion has reach ed a point where it is charged that leg islators wtio seek to put society on a eugenic basis do not know what they are doing. This opinion is based on an examination of recently enacted stat utes governing the question. The New York Medical Journal "tays editorially In its current issue, under the heading "Misdirtcted Eugenics," after referring briefly to an editorial article on the same subject printed on August 2: suggestive in this connection are the remarks of Professor Benson at the re cent International congress, and which rortunateiy nave been widely dissem inated through the lay "press: "I should be sorry," said this distinguish ed Investigator, "to see adopted the vi olent methods put to use in some parts of the United States, -It is one thing to cheek the reproduction of hopeless defectives, but another to organize wholesale tampering with the structure of the population, such as will follow If any marriage not regarded by offi cials as eugenio is liable to prohibition.

SI.- Harry K. Thaw's lawyers, swept off their feet yesterday by the sudden move of Wil liam Travers Jerome in obtaining through John Boudreu, the Coaticook ohief of police, a writ of habeas corpus requesting Thaw's production in the superior court here on Tuesday, spent the ' day in conferences, and tonight gave renewed expression of their belief that the writ would not be sustained. Appeal Might Cause Delay. "If it is sustained," aid W. K. Mc Keown of the Thaw forces, "there is always recourse to appeal, and I am in clined to think that appeal to the court of reviews or to the court of appeals would act as a stay and would hold our Client in Jail, safe from deportation.-In the face of such circumstances I do not see how New York state can make any move until the king's bench con venes in October." Women Call and Bring Flowers. Thaw spent the day in his cell writ ing letters and dictating to his sten ographer. As was the case last Sun day, there was no religious service in the prison. Several women called and gave the fugitive flowers. In fact, his cell has been banked with them ever since his confinement'. Boudreau Acted With Eyes Open. W. . L. Shurtleff of Coaticook, the first attorney who was retained for Thaw after his arrest nearly two weeks ago, said today he had ".card that Bou dreau told a number o friends that he had signed the petition for the writ of habeas corpus in the Thaw case through a mistake. Some one had told him, so the story goes, that he was affixing his signature to a document which would indemnify him should Thaw decide to sue for false arrest. He was Thaw's captor at Coaticook, and in his petition for the writ he set forth that he feared he might be liable for damage. Boudreau denied, how ever, that he had signed the applica tion for the writ without knowing what he was doing. Friends might criticise his act he added, but he had acted with his eyes open. v Thavs Lawyers Deny Coercion. Thaw's lawyers denied that they were trying to coerce Boudc au into asking for discontinuance of the writ. "We presume that he knew what he was doing," said McKeown, "though we have no doubt that he was frightened to some extent by repeated suggestions that he might have a big damage suit on his hands unless he tried to set Thaw out of Jail."

The fierce rioting in connection with the tramway strike was renewed today. Hundreds of per sons, including the city constables were inlured. On Saturday sixty or more persons were injured. All the hospi tals are so crowded that many serious cases had a be sent to their homes for treatment. The strike committee, in the inter est of peace, had rescinded early in the morning the proposed mass meet ing in O'Connell street, and had sub stituted a parade from Beresford Place to Croydon park, at Kairview, a sub urb on the north side of the city. The authorities meanwhile had prohibited the mass meeting. Croydon park belongs to the trans port workers' union and a meeting was held there without disorder. But on the return march the attempts of the police by baton charges to disperse the constantly growing crowds led at once to rioting. The mob was further incensed by the arrest of one of the strike leaders, James Larkin, against whom a warrant had been out for 24 hours. Larkin was on the balcony of a hotel in Sackvllle street. He was wearing a disguise for the purpose of eluding arrest, but an enthusiastic ad mirer raised the cry "Three cheers for Larkin!" The police immediately pounced upon him and violent scenes ensued. The rioting became general in var ious parts of the city. The police charged repeatedly with their sticks and this led to pitched battles. Stones, brickbats and bottles were hurled by the infuriated rioters, and the streets were soon covered with prostrate forms. More than fifty arrests were made. The tram sendee is completely sus pended. Today's rioting was the most serious which has ooeurred here since the wild days of the Land league in 18S3. Lar kin la the secretary of the Transport Workers' union, which he practically created and has been the organizer of many strikes. He has enormous in fluence among the men.

Should Tuesday's court battle go -against New York in its fight to re turn Thaw to Mattcawan, two possible . lines of action will still be open.

It became known tonight ; that he had made affidavit to this ef- ' feet before a notary yesterday, signing1 . a document releasing the cblef of po-; .-; lice from any liability, at the sama ' time signing another paper repudiat-i .
