C. The story follows: In February. 1909, Cassalso Maculoso and Vlncenzo Messina, known ns the Pro-1 fesoi. left Montreal. whie they bad been eiigHgiil In the white slave trade, for New Yoik. There they took the stenincr Duca del Abruzzl for Naples, whence Messina went direct to Palermo, while Cassalse and Maculoso proceeded to thu Villa San Giovanni la Calabria.

H'fciicr Tagblatt says Queen lga Intends to pay a visit to the twenty monasteries on Mount Athos. This will break the rule for bidding a woman to set foot on the holy mountain, which Iibb been observed for 1,500 years.

The republic of monks living nn Mount Athos has always shown a lack of courley toward women, ex cusing thwnselves by their statutes and the legend that the Virgin Mary bear ing the Infant Jesus camo to Indicate the site of the monasteries, since which time no other woman has been per mitted to set foot where she trod. These arguments were used ngaln't the Into Empress Elizabeth of Austria and also against a German princess. The announcement that the King nnd Queen of the Hellenes proposed to visit them, caused a flutter among the monks Hid they hurriedly summoned the Coun cil, which decided that they would be obliged to ulter their statutes in order to welcome their Qjiecn.

There has been prepared for the consideration loss of life and property besides the of ficial correspondence showing what has been said to Mexico, what she has prom ised and to what extent she has ful filled her promises. All this Informa tion will Ik available for the Incoming administration. The Mexican reply to the note of Sep tember 15, tt Is now disclosed, failed to show not only any appreciation for the assistance given the Madero Govern ment by President Taft In continuing to recognize It nnd glvo it his moral sup port, but conveyed the impression that Mexico herself Is the nggrieved parly tnstenri nf the one to offer redresa. I The note now lie I lie drafted will re mind President Madero of his obliga tions to the I'nited States and will In timate that a continued disregard of what the situation demands will bring consequences which Mexico cannot but greatly regret. It was nnnounccd to-night that the Senate sub-committee charged with the task of. investigating the Mexican sit uation will go to tho border during the Christmas holidays for thu purposu of making further Inquiry. Senator Smith, chairman of tho sub committee, and Senator Fall of New Mexico will certainly go and It Is prob nblo that Senator llorah also will Join his colleagues.

It Is known that the Senate commit tee regards the present situation us very serious. George Fred Williams of Boston In appearing before the commltteo this nf ternoon gave detailed testimony tpyi cal of the indictment which the com mittee has gathered. As part owner of tho Los Arcos Smelting and Mining Company In the stato of Mexico, 50 miles from Mexico city, Mr. Williams submitted letters received from thu munagers of the property. The latest letter, dated Pecember 4, said that tho property was then sur rounded by 1,000 bandits under Zapata, who demanded thn unconditional sur render of thn place. Zapata, according to the letter, had declared he would kill all Americans ho could catch on tho place because the property was last Mimmcr defended by a I edernl garii- Mlll. The manager said he and Ills assist ants Intended to light to the last and had no doubt they could .stand off the rebels If there was any assurance of ultimate relict from the Madero Go -ernment. Hn was pessimistic regarding the prospect of the Federals landing any aid, however, inasmuch as the Govern ment protection was withdrawn some tlmo ugo. Since tiio dato of this letter communication has been cut off und what has happened Is not known. Another eiu-o Is that of H, S. Steven son, manager of the Las Palomas ranches, who wns kidnapped by Salazar ind released only on payment of $7,500. The commltteo lins a letter written by Saluzar warning Stevenson that ho and nil his employees will bo killed If they attempt to return to the Las Palomas properties; that nil useful property on the ranches hus been destroyed nnd tho Federal garrison which was sent was annihilated nnd further that all Ameri can ranches, mines or haciendas do fended by Mexican Federals will Iwj destroyed as a warning against recog nition of "Dictator Mndcro" by tha United States Government and Ameri can citizens.
