Wasiuvoto.v, April 1. A po-Mble mo
tive for the capture of Powell Hohert.
citizen of the United States lis jug at
El Paso, Tex., by the rebel police au
thorities of Juarez, Mexico, is an effort
oa the part of the rebels to gain official
recognition from tho American Gov
ernment. The suggestion has reached tho Stato
Department that the rebels might havo
hoped to gam this desired lecognition
by compelling the American authoritiis
to treat with them for Roberts's release
Whether or not that was the motive, the I
capture of Roberts apparently has made
recognition of the rebelmovement bv this
Government more remote than over Itwas
' stated to-day there is nothing at all stubb,
in the revolutionary movement, and
accordingly it cannot bo rocognired,
Consul Edwards at Juarez was given
detailed instructions on this point to-day,
so that he may not create tho wrong
impression in making demands upon the
' rebels for Roberts's release.
In case Roberts is not surrendered the
American Government would probably
face the question of whether a forcibly
attempt should be made to recover the

LETTER AND SPIRIT
The Eighty Maiden Lane
Building and the land upon
which it is erected represent an
Investment of over $4,000,000.
The contract for this building,
like all such contracts, pro
vided for extensions of time in
the event of strikes, etc., and
the opportunities were rife for
the claiming of such extensions
had we insisted upon a strict
observance of contract rights.
In faet, if our conduct of this
operation had been wholly gov
erned by contractual obliga
tions, the 27-storv office build
ing at Eighty Maiden Lane
would probably be unfinished
at this writing, tenants could
not move in during the present
renting season, and the Owner
would suffer a big loss on their
But beyond our contractual
obligations referred to was our
moral responsibility to the
Owners that unwritten, irre
ducible part of the contract,
which kept ever before us the
vital necessity of completing
the building on time, in order
that tenants might be given
possession and that the Owners
should not face the handicap of
a rcn al loss at the very thres
hold of their enterprise.
The great achievements of
the world always transcend the
letter and fulfill the spirit. The
reputation of this Company has
been attained not alone by
adhering to the letter of its
promises, but by fulfilling those
promises in spirit not alone
by meeting its contractual ob
ligations, but by meeting its
moral obligations, too.
LESS PENT AND
Two things stand out clearly
in connection with the new
Lighty Maiden Lane Building
low rents and abundant sun
shine. Other buildincs in the
same neighborhood rent for '
more per foot and are not
planned to yield anything like
the tamo proportion of light.
Obviously, if you are open '
for a change of location the
logical solution is the Eighty
Maiden Lane Building. It of
fers you the greatest possible i
hare of light and sunshine at '
rents which are less pc-foot of i
space than you would have to
pay in other buildings where
facilities ore not so modern I
and sunshine is not so abund
ant. More sunshine for less money
is a likely-looking proposition
and we advise you to get next to
it. Phone the Fire Companies

WASBivorox, April 4. Th reply
which President Taft will make to the
Txxigo resolution on Magdalena Bay will
be assuring in regard to the relations
of the United States with both Japan
and Mexico. Tho reply will ahow in
fact that this Government has not been
able to dlocov,r any effort on the part of
either Japan or Mexico toward arrang

Representative Sulzer, chairman of
the Houce Foreign Affairs Committee,
seems inclined to regard the 'fuss that
has been raised over the Magdalena Bay
reports as designed to further the navy
fight for two battleships. At any rate it
was noted to-day that Secretary Meyer
had been quick to selte upon the situation
created by his friend the Senator from
Massachusetts to urge his battleship
Representative Sulzer claims to be In
formed as to the situation in regard to
Magdalena Bay and he Issued a formal
statement declaring that the report that
'Japan or any syndicate acting for Japan
has acquired rights, directly or indirectly,
at Magdalena Boy or elsewhere in Mexico
has no foundation in fact."
"I speak advisedly about the mattor,"
Mr Sulzer said. "The proposition Is
ridiculous. In view of our well Settled
policy the assertion that Japan has ao
qulted a base on the Pacific coast of
Mevtco refutes itself and is too absurd for
serious contrallction by Mexico or

terests have been anxious to obtain from
them. The company, according to the
attorneys and letters would prerer,

were never taken seriously.
