GOVERNMENT HAS NO MORE TEAR OF REVOLUTIONISTS. PRESIDENT DIAZ' SUCCESSOR Two Prominent Candidates for the Im portant Office—How the Nations Take Control of Various Lines of Business—Amei'ieans Lead in Rail roads, Banks and Other Enterprises. Washington, May 23.—An interesting View of the present economic status an I future prospects of Mexico is presented by Dr. Walter E. Weyl, who has recently spent six months in the country on some special work for the department of labor. Dr. Weyl availed himself of his in terest in economic problems to study in formally the financial development of Mexico and the prospect that the long strides taken under President Diaz will not be retraced if he dies or retires from office. Dr. Weyl is satisfied that Mexico has reached a position of political stability, which will not be impaired by Flic change in the head of the government. He says that when the country was the theater of frequent pronuneiamentos find revolutions, there did not exist the present means of prompt communtcatioi •by railway and telegraph. A revolu tion might be in full progress for several weeks in some distant province before the news would reach the capital and action to suppress it could be taken. Railroads Enu Revolutions. The conditions at present are very dif ferent. Any government worthy of the name would be informed at the earliest < moment of any outbreak which might • occur, and would be able to dispatch the | troops promptly by rail to the scene of : the disturbance. The influx of capital and the manner in which it is concentrated in the hands j of a few great railroads and ibanks also ! makes for order and the permanence of , existing institutions. The Americans, he finds, are absorbing most of the large enterprises of the ! country, the railways and the bankt, although the Germans have recently es- j tablished a strong institution. The Ger- j mans are monopolizing the hardware , market and much of the retail trade, I while the Spanish element keeps the j groceries and other small shops. It is (the Americans who come forward with new projects and abundant capital to carry them on, and they are recognized j everywhere as a growing, though most | unostentatious force in promoting good government. Successor to Diaz. The peaceful transfer of powers from President Diaz to a competent successor would, in the opinion of Dr. Weyl, tend to strengthen confidence in the future of Mexico, rather than to impair it. Such an event would demonstrate that the country need not depend for its se curity and progress upon the life of a cingle man. It is expected that President Diaz will publicly choose his own successor through a modest suggestion to his friends in congress, and that the man designated would be elected with little opposition. The election is made by con gress, thereby avoiding the strain of a popular vote. The choice for the new president will probably be between Limantour, the present minister, and General Reyes. Both are liberal in their political sym pathies, although Limantour belongs to the old aristocratic element. It Is be cause of these aristocratic connection» that the choice is more likely to fall upon Reyes, who is popular at once with the masses and with the army. Both Limantour and Reyes are on cor dial terms, and possibly an agreement may be reached by their friends by which the former shall hold office for a term and the other as premier.

The officials refused to divulge the names of the offenders, for the reason that complaints against them, they said, would be filed today. The state game warden is assisted In his work by eight deputies. The state is divided into as many districts, and each deputy is expected to look out for all Infractions of the law in his terri tory. Warden and deputies are vested with the same police powers as the sheriff, and are authorized to search any place, fish box, game bag or game coat at any time without the formality of se curing a search warrant. In view of the plenary powers of these officials a'l sportsmen who contemplate taking an outing this year would do well to study the game laws well, as Ignorance of the law excuses no one. The Lacey act, a federal law, provides that any game shippg,! into any state or territory is subject to its laws, as though it had been killed such state or territory. FIGHT OVER THE JEWEL LODE The hearing of the order to show cause why John Metz should not be enjoined from working the Metz or Jewel lode claim while an action to determine title to the property is pending in court was commenced in Judge Harney's court to day. The plaintiff in the case is Joseph J. Colbert. The Metz or Jewel is located near the Colorado company's old concentrator, about two miles southwest of the city, and is the property in which Metz struck a very rich vein of gold ore last sum mer. Shortly after the strike was made James Gier brought suit against Metz for a half interest in the property, claim ing that Metz had promised him the in terest for doing soirfb work on it. He had Metz temporarily restrained from I working the ground, but on the hearing to enjoin the defendant from taking out ore pending the trial of the suit Metz won the case. About that time Charles J. Colbe'-t located the property and called it the Jewel, alleging that the prior location had not been made in strict accordance with the law. He then instituted suit against Metz to quiet title to the ground, and Metz was once more restrained from molesting the streak of shining gold quartz which stood out in bold relief and beckoned the old prospector to dig It out. Since then no work has been done on the property. ALL GOT THEIR DESSERTS Judge Boyle Handles Alleged Law Violators and Imposes Various Sentences. Alice Jackson the ebony hued come dienne, of the half world of Butte, ap peared in the police court this morning and with a merry twinkle in her eye, stated that she would take until tomor row to plead to the charge of being an inmate of a house of ill-fame.
