Much excitement was created by the
message In Vera Cruz, where copies
wen- given out by the American Con-!

tary commander of that city predicted
thitt Iluerta would reply in no tincer- j
tain terms. '
Representative Munn declared yes- I
terday in the House? that the policy!
adopted by President 'Wilson toward j
Mexico would Inevitably lead to war. I
Special importance was attached to I
the statement made by the Republican
leader by the unexpected passage of tin;
Hay bill, authorizing President Wilson
to organize! a volunteer army. This
bill had been In Congress for tho bust
eight yearn, hut It xxics not expected
that It xunilel le brought up at this ses

day with three train loads of truops
and artillery. The rebel cotmiiandt r

this exeiilng. attracted attention by his
iou-1 .1 ml bitter criticism of thc tone of
the message.
It is understood that all passenger traf

oil for fuel. The Government hopes,

strong rebel force Is reported at Oon

The tebel force which Is lying out'ide

miral Fletcher not to attack the town.
T i- American Admiral pointed out to tho
e-be-i commander tho bad position In which

an attack upon the gulf port.
The longshoremen's strike which has

Sev.-ril Spaniards urrivlng from the

Hut e-.ty by the rebel generals, Pablo
ionzalez and I.uis G. Cahallero. The
b-i.s hail from H.000 to 8,000 men. The
i -'ler.ils fought bravely and the rebels
i-ininltled n excesses.
Many refugees from Victoria travelled

eb-ls, who captured live carts in which
tf- fugitive Federals were carrying can-'

Washington, Dec. 3. ltlmates of rev
enue for the- fiscal year ending June 30
next In Secietary of the Tie.nury Mc
Adoo's annual report give the latest in
foi mation as to what thc Wilson Admin
istration expects from the new tariff law.
The Secretary estimates that for the
twelve months ending with next June the
customs revenues will amount to JS70,
000,000, or $.4,400,000 les-s than under
the Payne-Aldrlch law In the preceding
fiscal year.
Mr. McAeloo figures, however, that the
Government will rcctlve from Internal
revenue 1407,000,000, or $62,500,000 more
than in the previous twelve mouths.
This maefked Increase In Internal reve-
nun reeetntn u-111 rnstllt from file new to.
eome .ax. Seeretarv McAd,o Mtl,nH.e.
that this tax will yield 154.000,000 from
.. . 1 m
Individuals and 33,000,000 from corpora-
tlons In the present fiscal year, but this
will be reduced by nn $5,000,000 compen
satory reduction In thc corporation excise
tax, which has been superseded by the
Income tax.
Thc Secretary believes .that the revenue
from tho new tariff law will be amplo to
meet the Government's expenditure, with
a big margin of sutplus.
Thc customs receipts for November fell
off about $4,500,000 from the correspond
ing month of last year. A similar reduc
tion in other months would mean a loss of
about $50,000,000 a year.
