Makes Sweeping Changes In
Procedure in Equity Cases.
Reduction of the Cost of Litigation and
the Elimination of Delays Sought by
Chief Justice White and His Asso-
ciatesNew Anti-injunction Rule.
Sweeping changes in procedure in
equity cases in federal courts through
out the United States are effected in
revised rules promulgated by the su
preme courts of the United States. The
object is to reduce the cost of litiga
tion and to eliminate delays.
The rules were announced by Chief
Justice White, who, however, omitted
explanation of one which would pro
hibit issue of preliminary injunctions
without notice to the opposite party
and also restricting issues of tempo
rary restraining orders.
The new anti-injunction rule incor
porates into practice several demands
of labor leaders which they sought to
have recognized by the enactment of
the so called Clayton anti-injunction
bill The new rule follows in a gen
eral way the rules of the federal court
in the ninth circuit, which comprises
the Pacific coast states
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, had
this to say about the anti-injunction
"It is a step in the right direction
and one of the things labor has long
been fighting for."
To Do Away With Delay.
Chief Justice White grouped the re
forms under four or five heads One
was in regard to the exercise of power
by the federal courts in equ. dble mat
ters. Another was described as being
designed primarily to remove all un
necessary steps in modes of pleading
and to bring the parties quickly to the
issue A third was described as being
a restriction in the modes of taking
testimony, particularly in patent and
copyright cases.
"The whole intention has been," said
the chief justice, "to bring the taking
of testimony down to a more simplified
and inexpensive method."
Another reform was said by the
chief justice to be illustrated by the
statement that the new rules gtu
eral provide for trial by the court
stead of a reference of the suit to a
referee to take the testimony and re
port back to the court
The chief justice said the new rules,
which go into effect Feb. 1, 1913, would
make it possible for the appellate court
not to reverse suits merely because of
errors not prejudicial
The New Injunction Rule.
The new rule on injunctions provides
No preliminary injunction shall be
granted without notice to the opposite
party, nor shall any temporary restrain
ing order be granted without notice to
the opposite party unless it shall clearly
appear from specific facts shown by affi
davit or by the verified bill that immedi
ate and irreparable loss or damage will
result to the applicant before the matter
can be heard on notice
In case a temporary restraining ordei
shall be granted without notice in the
contingency specified the matter shall be
made returnable at the earliest possible
time and no event later than ten days
from the date of the order, and shall take
precedence of all matters except older
matters of the same character When the
matter comes up for hearing the party
who obtained the temporary restraining
order shall proceed with his application
for a preliminary injunction, and if he
does not do so the court shall dissolve his
temporary restraining order.
Upon two days' notice to the party ob
taining such temporary restraining order
the opposite party may appear and move
the dissolution and modification of the or
der, and in that event the court or oudge
shall proceed to hear and determine the
motion as expeditiously as the ends of
justice may require Every temporary re
straining order shall be forthwith filed in
the clerk's office-
Work of Chief Justice White.
One of the tasks undertaken by Chief
Justice White when he was appointed
to succeed Melville W. Puller was to
reform procedure in the courts He
first revised the rules of the supreme
court itself For seventeen months the
chief justice and Justices Lurton and
Van Devanter have been working on
the equity rules as a subcommittee of
the court They asked every federal
judge throughout the country to get
expressions from bar associations on
the subject and wrote to many others
asking for suggestions.
These suggestions were digested by
the subcommittee, assisted by W.
Hughes of the department of justice
The present rules came down from the
courts of England, with only one oi

Sprig of Holly Part of Widow's Inheri
tance From Lawyer.
One of the items in the legacy of
Henry H. Reed, a San Francisco law
yer, going to his widow, Mary J. Reed
of Chicago, who separated from her
husband twenty years ago, is a sprig
of holly from the grave of Napoleon at
St. Helena. Reed died on Oct. 11, leav
ing no will, and the holly, with a bank
account of $2,300, goes to Mrs Reed.
The holly sprig is in the shape of a
cross. The wood is brittle but still
sound. It was found in Mr. Reed's safe
deposit box by the public administra
tor when going over the effects of th
dead lawyer.
Big Contributions Bring Inter
national Conference Nearer.
With, the payment of a contribution
of $100,000 by J. Pierpont Morgan as a
basis, the universal movement looking
toward world unity in religion has re
ceived impetus, and its founders look
for a much quicker carrying out of
their plan for an international confer
ence than they had hoped for. The
idea was born in the general conven
tion of the Protestant Episcopal
Church of the United States at Cin
cinnati in October, 1910, and the Rev.
Dr. W. T. Manning, rector of Trinity
church, New York, brought it forward.
He is chairman of the committee on
plan and scope.
The fact that Mr. Morgan had con
tributed such a large sum to the move
ment was not generally known until
Alfred W. Martin, associate leader of
the Society For Ethical Research,
made the announcement recently.
Mr. Morgan is a member of the gen
eral commission of the Episcopal
church, and associated with him on
that body, of which the Rev. C. P. An
derson of Chicago is president, are
Bishop Rhinelander of Pennsylvania.
Seth Low, George Wharton Pepper of
Philadelphia, Francis Lynde Stetson,
Samuel Mather of Cleveland and
George Zabriskie of New York, who is
Cardinal Gibbons Favors It.
A "world conference for the consid
eration of questions of faith and or-
der," as the movement is officially
termed, had never been proposed un
til Dr. Manning introduced a resolution
in the general convention of 1910 that
steps be taken to bring about such a
gathering of representatives of all
Christian communions throughout the
world. His resolution was adopted
unanimously, and Mr. Morgan an
nounced he would aid the plan in
every way. Later it was made known
that he would contribute $100,000.
This sum has been paid to the joint
commission and in conjunction with
many other gifts, somewhat smaller in
amount, will serve the financial pur
poses of the commission until the con
ference is actually held.
The most recent recruit to the world
conference idea is Cardinal Gibbons.
His support has greatly encouraged the
commission. This action on his part
will, it is believed, result in the ap
pointment to the joint commission of
representatives of the Catholic church
in America.
Religious Bodies Interested.
The religious bodies that already
have named representatives are the
Episcopal church in the United States,
the Congregational church, the Com
mission of the Disciples of Christ, the
Presbyterian church in the United
States, the executive committee of the
executive commission of the Alliance
of Reformed Churches holding the
Presbyterian system, western or Amer
ican section the Southern Methodist
Episcopal church, Southern Baptist
convention, Moravian church in Amer
ica, Reformed church in the United
States, Methodist Episcopal church,
Evangelical Lutheran church, United
Presbyterian Church of North Amer
ica, Reformed Presbyterian Church of
North America, Northern Baptist con
vention, Free Baptists, Reformed
Church in America, Reformed Presby
terian Church in North America and
the Church of England in America.
The Greek Catholic church also has
taken cognizance of the movement, and
the chief authority of that sect is ex
pected to appoint a representative.
The bishops of the Church of England
also will be represented.
One of the problems is where to hold
the world conference. The English
bishops think this country should be
selected, and the members of the com
mission from the United States are
working to that end. When the con
ference will take place has not been
determined. Dr. Manning says. It may
not be for two years, since an enormous
amount of work will be necessary to
arrange for what is expected to be the
greatest religious gathering of modern
Vegetarians, However, Saved Money
During the Past Year.
The cost of living continued to ad
vance during the past year, so far as
meat eaters are concerned, according
to a report issued by the department
of agriculture. Vegetarians, however,
saved money, for, according to the of
flcial showing, virtually all vegetables
enumerated in the government's list
fell in price, with the single exception
of beans, which cost on the farm $2.34
on Oct 15, as against $2.27 on the
same date last year.
Milk dropped slightly in price and
both apples and peaches were lower.
The increase in the value of farmers'
Hve stock also kept pace with the in
crease in the products of the farm.
Horses which could be bought for $137
last October now average $140, while
milk cows that then were valued at
$42.69 now are sold at $47.30.

Records of an Ancient People
Read From Carved Walls
In Mexico.
Key to the Mystery.
This key has been found in the ruin
of Xochicalco, seventy-five miles south
and west of Mexico City. Xochicalco
pronounced Zocheekalkowas a city
fifteen miles in one dimension by ten
in another, a closely built town of
stone and cement, its center a magnifi
cent temple, crowning a lofty artificial
mound or pyramid, whose truncated
top has an area of 12,000 square yards
In the center of this plain rises the
ruined temple, seventy-five feet long
from east to west and sixty-five feet
wide from north to south It stands
true to the compass, and the height of
the base walls alone is twelve feet The
temple topping these walls rose about
thirty feet higher
Carvings five inches deep, despite the
wear and tear of fifty centuries, cover
this basic wall, the tale of the race that
built the ruin, preserved from the
hands of vandal priests forever in im
perishable stone On one of these
carved stones, twelve feet long, two
feet thick and nearly four feet wide, is
a double carving On one side is the
original, done by the men who built
the temple on the other, cut by some
Aztec priest, is the translation of this
carving done into the picture writing
of the Nahuatl tongue, the name of the
language spoken by the Aztecs, and
their contemporary race, the Tlascal
This carving Professor Mena found
while digging around the base of the
ruined temple Seven months of hard
work were put in comparing the char
acters and formulating a sort of pic
ture alphabet of the original carving
on the ruin Then the archaeologist
spent five months more translating the
story of the four walls, and this is what
they tell:
A Race of 100,000,000.
About 5,000 years ago, as nearly as
time can be reckoned by the change of
the seasons and the calendar stone,
there dwelt in Mexico, ranging from
the head of the gulf of Lower Califor
nia to Guatemala and beyond, a race,
light of skin, high of forehead and
prominent of nose. This race number
ed close to 100.000,000 souls. It had
five great cities. One was on the gulf
of California, and its name has not
been deciphered. One was Mitla, one
was Xochicalco, one was Palenque, and
the fifth was either Uxmal or Chichen
ftza, in far southern Yucatan. These
aames are the Aztec equivalents of the
characters used to represent them in
the original carvings, and no man will
ever know what these names were in
the language of the great race
Xochicalco, the Aztec name for this
tuin, which was a ruin when the Az
les first came to the vale of Anabuac,
means "the house of the yellow king."
The character representing this ap
pears on one side of the stone in the
picture language of the builders and
on the other side in the picture lan
guage of the Aztecs. Immediately
following it comes the most remarka
ble part of the wonder story. At the
period when the stone history opens,
approximately 5.000 years ago. there
came to this race in Mexico or was
raised up among themthe meaning
is not just clear, but he appears to
have come from the westa man who
bftd a deep knowledge of building. He
fcaveled among this race of 100.000,800
HROUGH the medium of a hum md taught it the mason's art, how to
ble flat stone, carved on one
side in a mysterious, unknown
tongue and equally carved on
the other in partly known Nahuat lan
guage. Professor Ramon Mena has un
locked in Mexico a volume of history
which had been thought to be forever
sealed when tne Catholic priests of
Cortes' expedition burned the 20,000
volume library of the Aztecs at Tlaco
lula. Back for 5,000 years Professor
Mena has unrolled this tome of time,
reading its secrets from the carved
walls of Mitla, Palenque, Chichen
Itza, Bacalar and Xochicalco.
It has been known almost since Cor
tes conquered Mexico for Spain that
the Aztecs were a new race that they
built none of the massive structures,
even then rums, which covered the
land Back of the Aztecs there stood
in the shadow a great, peaceful, edu
cated, moral, building race. Tradition
had died out among the Aztecs They
lacked scribes to keep records of the
history of their country. But In Tlaco
lula. forty miles from Tenochtitlan
(now Mexico City), the capital of the
empire of the Aztecs, was a library of
20.000 deerskin and fiber volumes,
carefully guarded by a handful of
priests of the old cult This library,
priceless to humanity, was given to the
flames in one huge bonfire by the fa
natic priests who accompanied the con
Ever since the inquisition was driven
from Mexico men of science bare been
hunting for the key which should un
lock the imperishable library of the
past preserved in carvings, mural dec
orations, painted frescoes and flat
stone plaques in the five great ruined

But ere he went this master archi
tect, designer and director of all the

on all of them. He signed his handi

today sign the productions of their
brushes and pencils. And that sign
which he left was a feathered serpent
Translated into the Nahuatl of the
more modern Aztecs it is Quetzalcoatl

Master Mind of a Nation.
This signature, which appears on ev
ery block of stone in Xochicalco and
on every ruin in Mexico, is the link in
the chain which binds all of them to
gether, the slender thread which so
strongly shows that all were built by
the same tribe, all designed by the
same master mind. Quetzalcoatl's
work was more extensive and more
voluminous in all probability than that
of any other architect who has ever
lived, either in ancient or in modern
times. He alone carved the stone ser
pents, each with a feather covered
head, on the temples, and in Xochi
calco alone there are more than 500
feet of serpent each wall containing
a snake, its head at one end and its
tail at the other, running in sinuous
convolutions along the entire length.
The same serpent, identically feath
ered, in the same shape and with the
same number of teeth, appears on the
temples of each and every one of the
ruined cities.
"There is not a doubt in my mind,"
said Professor Mena, in his work on
Xochicalco, "that one great race is
responsible for all the magnificent
ruins of Mexico, and not several, as
has been believed. But the most re
markable part of it all is that this
race has disappeared completely Not
even a trace of its spoken language, its
legends, or its characteristicsphysic
ally, I meanremains among the In
dians of Mexico, all of whom show
traces of the Aztecs, who were not the
conquerors of the mysterious race to
which Quetzalcoatl belonged
"The Aztecs, who arrived in Mexico
about the seventh century A. D., and
who conquered the miserable tribes
they found here, saw only ruins where
these massive cities once stood, and
not one of the Indian tribes then oc
cupying these iands could tell them
aught of the builders of any ruin, from
Xochicalco to Palenque."
In the Nahuatl tongue the name of
this mysterious dead race was Quiche,
or Kicheno one knows just which
nor does any one know what the peo
pie of Quetzalcoatl called themselves in
their own language. But on the walls
of Xochicalco Quetzalcoatl has left
what is supposed to be a portrait of
himself, seated cross legged beneath
the protecting curve of a convolution
of the great feathered serpent. The
face is strong and fearless, the brow
high and noble, and the eyes are turn
ed toward the west, whence he came.
What Became of Quiches?
What became of the Quiches is the
question which is puzzling the wise
men of the national museum of Mex
ico. Somewhere between 3,000 years
before the time of Christ and 700 years
thereafter this mighty race, which the
carvings say possessed as many mem
bers as the United States has inhabit
ants, passed as silently and mysteri
ously as it came. Where it came from,
where it went and what wiped it off
the face of the earth are the questions
to be answered, and deep study will
be made of all the five cities to see if
the answers can be found.
Down on the Balsas river, in the
state of Guerrero, about 400 miles from
the City of Mexico, the largest ruin of
all Mexico has been uncovered. In
vestigators sent there by the National
museum of Mexico report that the
rutos cover an area fifty miles in
length by twenty-two in width, a city
which must have held three or four
million souls at the height of its pros
perity. The ruined buildings are close
together, and there are four large pyra
mids and seven large temples or pal
It seems that Xochicalco was the
tenter of the Quiche empire, accord
ing to Professor Mena. Here lived the
irehitect Quetzalcoatl while he was
not going from city to city instructing
the people in the building of their
homes, temples and palaces His go
ing seems to have been the signal for
the beginning of the downfall of the
great race of the Quiches How they
wentpestilence, famine, earthquakes
or floodsno man knows or ever will
know, only it is certain that they did
not end their racial existence in war
No bones of defending armies are
found round these ruins, but many are
uncovered in the houses which in each
instance filled the valleys below tht
giant mounds on which the ruined
temples and palaces stand This would
fadfeate that they died from diseases.
