that the Progressives In California would

CASH FOR INSTITUTE
New Gift of $2,550,000 In
creases Total to $12,500,000,
Exclusive of Realty.
3,550,000 GIVEN THIS YEAH
Now Most Amply Endowed In
stitution for Medical He
search in World.
The trustees of the Rockefeller Insti
tute announced yesterday the receipt of
a new gift of j:. '50,000 from John D.
Rockefeller, the founder of the great
laboratories for tho study of the causes
of human disease. Only recently Mr.
Rockefeller set nsldo In a special fund
Jl. 000,000 to enable the Institute to found
a department of animal pathology, so
that it may be said that Mr, Rockefeller's
1914 gift to the Institute Is $3, 550. 000.
From his bounty the Institute has re
ceived since Its Inception In 1901 12,-
D0O.00O, and this does not include the
value of the real estate. In addition to
valuable plots of ground the Institute
owns a farm of 100 acres which is used
not so much for experimental purposes
I as for the breeding nnd care of Inbora
I tory animals and the supply of farm
' products. If, as hits been estimated
the real estate Is worth j:,500,000 the
resources of tho Rockefeller Institute now
approximate II 5, 000,000,
Mr. Rockefeller began his series of
gifts in 1901, when he set aside $200,000
for the commencement of tho work for
which the Institute was designed. At
the end of the first year he set aside
Jl. 000,000. In October, 190S, his Rcneros.
Ity made It possible for the Institute to
buy from the Hchermerhorn estate a plot
of land nt Avenue A and Sixty-sixth
Othrr Rockefeller Clfta.
In 1907 tho work of the Institute was
put on u permanent basis by Mr. Rocke
feller with a gift of J2.620.61O for en
dowment. In 1908 there was a gift of
KiOO.OOO for the erection of a hospital.
This sum was augmented by subsequent
gifts amounting to 1170.015.20. In l0s
also money was provided for the pur
chase of mom ground. In 1911 the In
stitute ncipilred nearly four ncrea be
tween Avenue A nnd the liist River
and Hixty-fourth street nnd Hlxty-sev-enth
street. Mr, Rockefeller responded
to every need of the work.
The terms of the new gift nnd the pur
poses for wnich 11 win oe usen are ex
plained In the ntatement which the Insti
tute gave out yesterday:
In order that further opportunHles
may bo afforded for the more complete In
vestigation of tho nature and causes of
human disease nnd methods of Its preven
tlon and treatment Mr. John I). Rocke
feller has Just donnted 2,Ii50,ono to the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Re
"Of tho sum Just donated a part will be
utilized to purchase additional land In
New York city so that the Institute will
have acquired the entire tract where Its
buildings are now located, between Hlxty
fourth nnd Hlxty-seventh streets on Ave
nue A. extending through to East River
about four acres. The remainder will be
used to erect and equip additional lubora
torlea, buildings and plant and to Insure
the proper maintenance and conduct of
the extended work.
Leads All In Endowments.
"Tills gift of $2,550,000 Is In addition
to a special fund of $1,000,000 which Mr,
Rockefeller has provided In order that the
Institute may establish a department of
animal pathology. Dr. Theobald Smith,
now professor of comparative pathology
In Harvard medical school, Is to become
director of the new department.
"It will te the purpose of this branch
of tho Institute's work to give special ut
tentlon to the study of maladies such ua
hog cholera, foot and mouth disease and
diseases of poultry, which are of such Im
mediate and practical concern to farmers
and tho elimination of which la no Im
portant. This will be the first enterprise
of Ihls kind upon an adequate basis to be
established in this country. The results
of Its work should eventually be of great
value In Improving the health of cattle
and other farm animals.
"Mr. Rockefeller's previous gifts to the
Institute had amounted to practically $D,
oou. 000. exclusive of real estate In New-
York city, so that the endowment of the
Institute will now approximate $12,600,.
The Rockefeller Institute will with the
new gift now become the most amply e

WAGER TO PREVENT DUEL
M. Albert de Muralt Insists His
Own Franco Will Ho
If the unknown gentleman In Florence,
Italy, who Is writing to various Man
hattanltcs over the signature "David II.
Wilson" had thought to enclose with his
letters definitions of such hand raised,
1915 model English ns "rnnck." "hanorn
bleness," "whoeverhad" and especially
"convalldatlng" then the last faint shad
ow of doubt as to Just what he Is doing
on the Continent would be dissipated.
One thing he makes certain that every
day Just now he Is getting up early and
working hard In Florence "to demon
strate to theso foreigners that our (Amer
ican) race Is famed for noble nnd ele
vated sentiments." Dut to prove all this
he must win a bet, he says, that hs
has made with one "Albert de Muralt,
French subject," that Americans will send
more money to Mr. Wilson In' a given
tlmo thnn Frenchmen will send to M.
So now all we have to do hero Is to
shoot the money along to David faster
than Frenchmen send It to Albert, and
once more will tbo Htars and Htripes

and golf this year. Here, nt least. Is
one sporting event where a ruin of tho

The big circular, printed In red and
black, that David Is sending to this
country tells In detail (by the way, there
must be a strike on among English proof
readers In Florence Just now) how, to
nvold bloodshed on the duelling field of
honor, the wager between him and M. de.
Muralt was agreed upon. Hut first read
some extracts from David's near type
written letter, -which Is addressed to
"Gentleman und fellow countryman":
I have the honor of sending you
a copy of the minutes of the meeting
from which originates the motive that
compels mo to trouble you, without
having the pleasure of knowing you
Read the enclosed and do not deny

It may be clearly demonstrated to
these foreigners that our race Is
famed for noble and elevated senti
ments. it Is the reputation of nl. us
Americans that Is at stake. I appeal
therefore to your national spirit. In
exchange for your valued assistance
I will forward you an object of art
or somu specialty of Italy of the
value of the sum you yourself may
Indicate, together with my photograph
In memory of this victory.
That last phrase ought to get any
body who still thinks of holding out. It's
an even chance that Davlib would even
go to tho extreme of autographing the
photogruph, supposing you are patriotic j
enough to set yourself back financially
with sulllclent enthusiasm.

cular, them gentleman wuro all sitting
around In ono of thorn rooms when Albert
de Muralt up and allowed that the
"French people wero Infinitely superior to
the American people In their noble racial
traditions, their spirit of enterprise and
the trust they Inspired, whereas the Amer
ican people displayed a character at once
avaricious, selfish and vulgarly commer
cial, adding that his assertions were borne
6ut yet once again by the American ag
gression In Mexico."
Oosh, but David did get sore t You get
than from tho text that follows. It's a
good thing he wns there to defend us, for
although the circular doesn't say that
Puvld went to tho extreme of calling
Albert out It Is made very cleur that
David gat sore as a pup and came back
at Albert like Albert were dirt under hla
feet. Tho lie was passed, both sides
muffed It and so, as Ring Lardner says,
they kidded back and fourth.
Listen to the racket:
Prltfndn of both parties interposed.
Their efforts, however, were of no
avail, Mr. A. de Muralt flung out
that sueh were his opinions,, which he
was ready to sustain on the, field, and

In Rodman Wiiiiamaker's transatlantic

totalled 1,I13 pounds or useful load. This
number of passengers Is moro than wan
ever carried In a flying machine In the
country before, and Is said to be a world's
record for flying boats. The weight car
ried was three times the weight carrying

of a flying machine.
Lieut. John Cyril Forte, It N., who is

Frenchmen now In Italy, to send a whole

cular says that all "letters that happen
to come from Italy, and thoso that can
not bo authenticated, will bo returned."
The circular Is very strict about this.
Kven with the fifteen days more that

Consul nt Torreon until Huerta can
celled his exequatur, In April last, on
account of his alleged activity in be-

with Gen. Villa's forces. Senator Fall
referred to him as "our diplomatic

State Department tho record of Carro

"Horn in 1875; grocer for several
years; In commlsulon business; ap

The stntcmont charges that whllo pos

both Villa and Gen. Fcllpo Angeles to

This charge, coming on top of recent
favorable developments In tho Mexican
situation, caused n lot of excitement In
Washington to-night and left every

Cnrranza really Intends to do.

The statement discloses what purports
to be the real facts of the recent break
between Carrnnza and Villa. Tho n
tlre blame Is placed upon Gen. Angeles,
who, It Is charged, was making un effort
to have himself declared provisional
It Is evident from tho statement that
Villa nnd Carrnnza havo not yot en
tirely adjusted their difference, but
I havo merely agreed to to forwnrd with
tho campaign against Huerta, leaving
n final settlement until after thoy have
accomplished tho chief purposo of the
military movement tho elimination of
Thn statement seeks to show that tho
Immediate cause of tho disagreement be
tween Villa nnd Ourranza was an order
by the latter for Villa to send rconforco
ments to Gen. Natcra during tho first
battln of Zacatocas. Villa, acting on
tho udvlco of Gen. Angeles, refused to
do this unless ho wero permitted to
take chargo of tho expedition at the
head of his own troops. Carrnnza In
sisted upon tho order belnK curried
out and Villa tendered his resignation.
Angeles was removed from tho Cabinet
and Villa, realizing, It Is contended, that
ho was being used In an effort to pro
mote Gen. Angeles's ambition for tho
provisional Presidency, agreed to patch
up his differences with Carrnnza pend
ing tho fall of Mexico city.
Tho statement caused consternation not
only In ofllclnl circles hero but umong
representatives of tho Constitutionalists
themselves. It was apparent that the
Constitutionalists wero divided Into two
camps. Judge Charles A. Douglas, who
has been representing Carrnnza here In
his dealings with the Stato Department
and has hern advising a course pleasing to
tho Stato Department, was greatly per
turbed, Haver Drrak Looked For,
Ilrcceda's statement was generally re
garded hero as presaging a further serious
break In the Constitutionalist ranks In
Mexico, certainly after Mexico city is
tukcp. If not before. The obvious purpoi.it
of the stutement is to discredit the Ida
that Villa Is the real man of power In tho
Constitutionalist movemant and to set
C'arranza before tho American public us
the leader In fact as well as In theory.
Breceda contends that Villa has only
about 13,000 men and Gen. Angeles lf,000.
