Washington, March 14.?Veiled de

replying to representations by this gov?
ernment that the United States de?
mands protection of all foreign i trr
ests and will assume re:;H?nsi' ;lity for
lark of such protection has swved to
increase the impatience of the admin?
istration.
Carranza's note, transmitted to the
department of State through Consul
Simpich, at Nogales, was made public
to-day. coincident with intimations,
that a serious breach between the
1'nited States and the Constitutum
i?lists is inevitable unless every ??onces
sion to the administration's demands
u made. It is the purpose of Pr?sider.!
Wllaoai not to yield in the slighter par
ticular to any policy of Carranza which
?a ill embm s a rigid enforcement of
the Monroe Doctrine in dealing with
P?ers not on this hemisphere.
Carranza's Reply.
Th?: text of General Carranza'-, reply
to Consul Simpich is as follows:
As you know, the department at
"Washington has communicated with
mc, through yourself and the Ameri?
can C nsul at Hermoslllo, to make two
tukUkmP of representations to me, both
unofficial, the one concerning Ameri?
can citizens, the other non-American
foreigners.
"'As you are aware, I haxe enter?
tained the representations Secretary
Bryan thought fit to make when na?
tionals of his rountry were concerned,
the said repi sentations, however,
being used by me as information to re?
dress and ax-oid the wrongs to which
ihey relate.
"In his letter to you about the in?
n?s suffered at the Desenga?o mine,
at Guanacevi, Secretary Bryan tells
you that countries which hax-e recog
nizi-'d the Huerta government cannot
ipply to me, since every nation can
haxe but one diplomatic corps ac
, rodited to one other, and consequently
those countries which haxe recognized
Huerta cannot make representations
to mc.
"This is clearly my understanding,
and I have never claimed that those
governments accredit diplomatic repre?
sentatives to me. But those same na?
tions may very well, under interna?
tional law and diplomatic usage, have
unofficial intercourse with me In my
i-apacity of commander in chief of the
i'onstitutional army, which dominates
a large part of the nation.
Pointa Unofficial Way.
"This unofficial manner may be
availed of by the aforesaid countries

ited in Washington, or through their
-ensuis residing in the Mexican terri?
tory controlled by the forces under my

and wrecked the interior of a saloon
at l'Jod street and Lexington avenue,

Windows in houses in the neighbor?

(From The Tribune Correspondent.]
Mine?la. Long Island, March 14.?
Thieves who would coax chickens from
the coops of Frederick Maidmant, edi?
tor of "The Sea Cliff News" and gen?
eral manager of the Nassau Light and
Power Company, are going to have a
merry time.
Raids on the Maidmant chickens
have bf-en so frequent in the last three
Willis*! that Mrs. Carrie Golden MsM
tnant, the editor's wife, applied to
Sheriff Pettit to-day for permission to
become a deputy sheriff.
Pettit was amused at first by the re?
quest, but Mrs. Maidmant convinced
him that because of lier husband'8 fre?
quent absence from home she needed
authority and pro ?'ction. So she was
made a deputy sheriff and now -ias a
badge, a revolver and other comforts
of home. She is the first woman dep?

Eastward Time Lies in Wake of
Giant Sea Flyer as Ship
Nears Port.
Ac?'orUii.g to a xx Ireless message re?
ceived in ihis city by the Cunard Line
the IdUsltania up to" noon yesterday had
broken the eastward record, held by
ths Mauretania.
Whether this time will be maintained
for the remainder of the run over the
full course avIII not be known until
tc-day.
?nptaln Daniel Dow. who broke the
record for the fastest w.stward run
across the Atlantic with the Maure?
tania more than a year ago, is in com?
mand ?if the Lusitanla. He is the most
popular skipper in the company's ser?
vice and has established a remarkable
e-prlt de corps on every ship he has
commanded. It is the affection felt for
him by the stokers and crew in gen?
eral that is largely responsible for his
ability to get more speed out of a ship
than any of his fellow masters.
Captain Turner, the regular master
Of the Mauretania. became suddenly ill
a day before the vessel started for New
York on her record run. Captain Dow,
at two hours' notice, was shifted to the
? rmmand from the Caionia. He brought
the Mauretania over in the record time
of four days ten hours and forty-one
minutes, at an average speed of 26.06
knots, and also established the record
single day's run, whioh is 676 miles.
At noon yesterday the Lusitanla re?
ported that ?he had made 618 miles
from noon of the previous day, at an
average speed of 26.07 knots, beating
the previous eastward record of the
j Mauretania, which was 614 miles, with
an average of 25.89 knots. The east?
ward record established by the Maure?

Lenihan grabbed Bumberger and
dragged him off toward a signal box,
followed by a o ting band of the pris?

himself free, struck Lenihan on the Jaw

The policeman closed with his pris?
oner and both men fell. The rest of tho
gang Jumped on the policeman, and
Lenihan's uniform was being torn off
when Patrolmen Lyons and Devery,
with a large number of citizens, went
to his rescue.

lasted almost half an hour. Some one
telephoned to the police station and fif?
teen reserves came up in an automo?

tion McLoughlin was found to have a
scalp wound; his left eye was closed
and his body bruised all over. After
