It la believed here that the element now In control at Mexico city feels that the presence of the former President would go far toward Inspiring confidence in the Government throughout the coun try. Also his remarkable shrewdness, his political wisdom and ability to pull things out of a hole ar now remembered In the difficulties in which Huena and the prej ent Government find themselves. As an unofficial adviser and centre of an un official group of influential men. many Mexicans believe Don I'orttrlo would strengthen th- position of Mexico greatly. Since he left his country as a result of the Madero revolution IJen. L'laz has Ken an exile, spending most of his tlffie in France. Soon after Madero -ame into power a movement began with the object of bringing him back. President Madero frowned upon this, however. With the accession of Huerta man of the old Clen tlfleo parij. or nias faction, became con vinced that their day at court had come again and the sentiment in favor of bring ing the old General hack Increased. It Is not generally expected that Gen Diaz will come at this time lie lias said :rpeatedl. the laM time only a few davs ao. that he will not return to Mexico un less that f-ountry was invaded by a for eign enemy. His reply to the invitation of the Huerta Government was non-committal, indicat ing that he was pot yet convinced that the day had come for him to return lo the country from which he was driven after a quarter of a century of remarkable suc cess as a ruler.

His statement was Issu-d after the announcement that Gamboa would receive the support of the Huerta Govern ment. The statement explains that under the act of 1963. passed by President Benito Juarex. it will be possible to execute any ueh person aa a traitor to his country as Maxtmlllian was executed at queretaru by Juarex. No elections can legally be held In Mexico with the preaent conditions existing. Carranxa says, and if It is at tempted it will be done only as a ruae to fool the United States.

The sum mons was In the nature of a request or nutation to the aged warrior to return to hla country in an active military cKpur Ity. It Is understood that Gen.

Porfirlo Dial's recall has been one of courtesy rather than an order. The army regulationa empower the War Department to recall officers on the re tired Hat to active aervlce only In caae of a foreign war. Gen. Dial, therefore.

PROGRESS ON HIGHWAYS Commissioner's Plans Include a Fine Route Through the Adirondacks. Ai.sanv. Sept. II, John N. Carlisle, Commissioner of Highways, has so far worked out his plans for the highway work in l!U thai lie Is able to announce In a general way some of the highways that he hopes to have finished next year. Perhaps flic most Important announce ment is that the great trunk road from New York to Buffalo will be completed before (hi end of the ear. Theie are now three or four breaks in that trunk line. One part of the road Just south of Poughkeepsle has been held up pending the completion of the New Tork city aqueduct work That section will be plaeed under contract this full and also the connecting links In Westchester county, Between Albany and Buffalo Is an unfinished portion near Balatlne Bridge and slso an uncom pleted portion in t'ayuga county, both of which will be finished by next year. It Is the purpose of Mr, Carlisle to finish the highway between llorseheads and New-fields in Chemung, Senuyier and Tompkins COUntlOS, and then with the completion of another link In Cort land county there will be a continuous Improved highway from Klmlra through Ithaca and Cortland to Syracuse. The completion of two or three short highways north of Syracuse will give a continuous rmite from there north to Watertown and the Thousand Islands and then across the northern part of the tato through Malone and Plattsburg and from Plattsburg south to Albany, to Saratoga and Glena Falls and the other cities. Fine for Aatesaohtllsts. It will be possible for automohilists leaving New York for Albany to go north through the picturesque Adiron dacks and laike George district on the so-called Miami to Montreal route, then across the northern part of the St""1 near the Canadian frontier, to the Thou sand lalanda region and then hack to the main trunk line between Buffalo and Albany. .. The State route from I'tica. Carthage. Watertown. Clayton and Alexandria Bay Is all under contract exi ept two pieces for which plans have alrendy been pre pared and that route will also be com pleted hy 1914. Mr. Csrllsle also expects that he will be able to complete Btate Route No. 30 hading from Niagara Kalla easterly through Ontario, Monroe. Wayne, Cayuga and Oawego counties. State route No. 4. leading across the southern part of the State, and one of the so-called national highway systems, will probably be all finished by the end of 1111. This route Is practically all In. eluded In the expedited routes and there haa been some delay this year owing to the improper type of construction. It was necessary to cancel part of the con tracts that had been let. Those parts that have been cancelled will be completed early in the voir and the roada that are not already let will be put under con tract at an early date. There are now two hreaka In the road from Albany to Blnghamton. and they will be both placid under contract to be completed next year. The department also expects to finish the State route from Cortland to Blnghamton. Plate route No. I, from Kingston west erly through the Catskllls to Onronta will he completed, also the State route running from Klmlra northerly through Dundee and Penn Yan to Geneva. Two Traak Maes. In sdditlon to this work Mr. Csrllsle expecta to build part of routea 12. 14, 15. 18. 17 and is nor and aouth In the west ern psrt of the State. This plan, as worked out, will give two trunk lines across the state, one from Buffalo to Albany, and the one on Route No. 4 through the southern tier, and a complete ayatem of connecting highways to the northern, central and southern parts of the State with connecting north und south lines In planning the highway work for 1914 Mr. Carlisle Is following the Idea hereto fore expressed by him of having roads to be improved by the state built Into a eon tlnuous system of highways instead of detached roada here and there leading nowhere and making it Impossible either for those who use the highways for pleas ure or for business to have a continuous highway for a length sufficient to give I ny real benefit. 60,000 IN HOLY NAME PARADE.

MONEY BADLY NEEDED; N. A. M. Correspondents Report That Government Is Handicapped. An Investigation of conditions In Mexico by !57 correspondents of the National As sociation of Manufacturers shows that prices have risen and markets are uncer tain, that the gold resources do not per mit the Government to maintain the Mexi can peso at Its former exchange value and that credit has been seriously dis turbed. The Government Is said to be making programs In restoring normal con ditions but lan urgent need of money. These :t7 representatives of the N. A. M. bankers, lawyers and merchants covered all the Mexican Htates except two In their Inquiry Into present conditions of business. The investigation was under taken because of the fact tlfat the I'nlted States is Mexico's liest customer. The district chiefly disturbed consists of a block of the larger Stales in the north. The resulta of Hie Investigation have been compiled by William M. Benney. manager of the foreign department of the N. A M-. and Vicente Gonsales B, adviser on I.atln American affairs of the N. A. M. A summary follows: In the State of Chihuahua bualnesa 1 almost at a standstill No credit la given unless gusranteed by mortgages. There are fern- importations and there Is a rise In prices. Agriculture has been largely abandoned In Coahulla business is either had or stagnant, merchants curtail sales, credit Is restricted and prices have soared In keeping with the rates of exchange. The same is true of Nuevo leon. In Sonora business Is bad and credit' are Impaired. Banks and other creditors have helped the mercantile class as far as possible. The only failures have been those of Chinese houses and some weak local firms. The Gin eminent Is said to be making headway. Of Tamaullpas rnrrespendrnts In Tam- plco and Laredo report business as being excellent and better than It was time years ago. There have been no notable rt strlctlona on credit. The tone of the re ports is hopeful, much of the business confidence being based on the great devel opment of the petroleum region of this State. I entral Mates. In Mexico city all business has suffered grestly during the last three years. Local manufacturers have benefited in some in stances becauae Importation has been re stricted. Healers ill war supplies have done well, but the bad effects of the revo lution In genersl overbalance the benefits to particular Interests. Business has suffered but little in Agusacallentea and there have been no Important failures. There has been a general curtailment of rredlt on account of the uncertainty of exchange and there has been a general Increase In prices of about 10 per cent Despite contradictory reports from Guanajuato the Impression prevails that business Is better there than in other States There Is an optimistic tone In the reports. Hidalgos business is slack. Confidence Is expressed thst the Government will overcome Its difficulties. The uprising there Is said to have done no serious dam age. Business is favorable in Puebla and re ports are encouraging. The price? of Im ported goods have risen 2n to 30 per cent. From San Luis Potosl come word that although buslneas has diminished some what, the outlook Is hopeful. Zacatrcas Is. however, In a had way. with minim; operations practically suspended and the leading merchant!, closing their places. Durango's business is curtailed like tliat of Zacateraa. The State in in the hands of the revolutionists. Onlf Slates. In Vera Cruz business In good in Cor doba and Jalapa: It Is satisfactory except in groceries In Orlsaha: In Puerto Mexico It is very had. Farms and ranches on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec have been aban doned. From Yucatan correspondents report thst business Is generally good on account of the high price of sisal hemp The rise of exchange has affected seriously those who owe money abroad. Paclac States. Chiapas reporta business good artd no failures in years ; Jalisco haa been af fected little by the revolution. Paralysis of business, hut no failures, exists In Michoacan. and in Oaxaca business Is said to be good, with no particular restric tion of credit and only a slight rise in prices.
