4 4- SIGNS OF BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT SEEN Confidence Is (lrowiiir. Siiy ilpports (o T. S. Clininlicr of ComitHMve. MORE CATTLE HKIXtt FED! Washington, Auk. i Tlii feline of pprhenlon be.-iue of th( Kurnrean war nan nlmnM dle.ipneiired In this country, accoroniK to n rpeci-ti rri'onj ubmltted to-dny by the committee on i stitl.itlco nnd rtandirds of the Chamber 1 of Commerce of tne l.'nlled Htstefi. ' There Is evident now, according to the report, a strong belief tint business will Improve. The committee finds that In the miln th thoughts and Interests of the pro ducers, whether In Ity or rountry, are In local rather than Intt-rnntlonnl proh Imii. There etlll continue, however, much confervatlom In liuylnit and In new commitments. The feeling seems to be that It Is best to wait until the results of the crops are known before venturing further. As n consequence stocks of merchandise throughout the country continue light. Lumber Interests are everywhere quiet. A general dirth of building outside of the large cltle Is having n depressing effect on the s.ile of nil build ing miterlals. Copper mines ire running full time and new ones are opening Zinc and lead mines are exceedingly busy and the mining of Iron ore Is Improving. Coal mining U everywhere dull, , largely be-aune of slack dennnd from the railroads and the slow business In most manufacturing. Slite mining In Pennsylvania Is at a low stage. Silver mining surfers beciuse of low prices of silver, and gold mining Is not much better save in a few favored localities. There Is little buslnes In naval stores. Phosphate mlne still remiln closed because of the Kuropean war. Unfavorable reports come alike from the fisheries of Oregon, Wat-hlngton, the Gulf and along the Atlantic coist. IniprfM rment In Slrel nnil Iron. The steel nnd Iron huslne short dis tinct Improvement. Business of cotton and woollen mills is only fair. Those manufacturers In different sections who have orders for wr contracts are ex ceedingly husy. The furniture buslncs In Michigan, northern Indiana and Chi cago Is dull. I'nrer mills are running only three-quarlers time. Cement fac tories and those making bricks and tile report only fair business. The oil In dustries as a whole are very dull. There la little demand for railroad ties. In general, because of abundant feed and low prices, the raising of llvest 'ck It a growing Industry In all sections of the country From the South a me re ports of increaslns numbers of animals. In every section the dairy Industry I' rowing. Mules and horses are In de mand at good price. This Industry has been favorably affected by the Kuropean war. Stimulated by the abnormal demmd of the warring nations the wheat nere aire Increased beyond any previous planting. It was approxlmitely lS'a per cent, greater In winter wheat and 10 per cent. In spring wheat than In 1914. The continued wet weather de layed growth, harvesting nnd threshing. Much damage was done to standing grain In the lowlands. Many fields were washed tway nnd subsequent damage accrued In t-hocks be cause of sprouting and too much ino's ture. These accumulated results h.ive made mcensary a somewhat reduced estimate of both sprln? and winter Wheat, the probable yield being put at 941.500.000 bushels, While Indian corn needs an abundance of moisture, It has had a superabundance this season. In the bottoms the crop In many sections Is hurt beyond repair. On the uplands and the hill country conditions, however, are of the best. Rnln npiluces the Corn Crop. In the northern sections, especially in Minnesota. Wisconsin, the two Pikotas, northern Nebraska and the peninsula of Michigan, the growth of corn has been much retarded by continued cool, wet weather. The prestnt estimate is for a crop of approximately 2,935,000,000 husftels. or about 10 per cent, grmr than last year. Of this amount the fif teen Southern States will produce about 35 per cent., as against tin aver.irto yield of 30 per cent. South of the southern line of Mlt-sourl the corn crop suffered little, save In extreme southern Texas, where It was cut Hhort by drought dur ing: June. Oats are particularly susceptible to damage by wet weather, but depltr this the outlook now Ik for a yield of about 1,400,000,000 bushels, closely rivalling the record hreaklng productl n of jsi". The production of minor grains will be about normal and the potato crop will closely approximate that cf last year The reduction In the cotton acreage a compared with last cur Ih Approx imately 16 per cent., with about 40 per cent, decrease in the ure of fertilizers. A tentative long distance forecast Indi cates a production f about lli.onn.uno bale, exclusive of llnters, which will pos sibly run about SOO.OOO more bales. As a whole the crop has done well and ! In general good o ndltlon Unforced economies have everywhere previi'lul and tho cotton crop will be the oCieajest raised In many years. PERKINS ON DAVENPORT.

The Presi dent has been further advised that If the United Slates c mmlts Itself to a pdlcy of reestablishing order In Mexico It must be prepnicd to make some kind of guarantees iclatlve to finances. It has been pointed out to tho Ad ministration that wllh w'.ir conditions prevailing abroad the United Slates Is the only place to which Mexico can look f r financial assistance. The President Is known to be reluctnnt to permit (he Administration even remotel to become Involved In this question of Mexico's finances. Despite this there Is ground for expecting that when the time comes the President will subscribe to a plan designed to afford Mexico the finances she will need In a piogramme for re-' habituation. Present Indications are the Mexican conference called by Secretary Lansing will reassemblo In New York Tuesday or Wednesday. An Intimation to this ef fect was given to-night by Secretary Lansing shortly ojter his return from New York. The. secrecy observed by nil parties to the Mexican negotiations concerning the date for the reasjcmbllng In New York has excited speculation that the conference plan had been or might be abandoned. Those best Informed on Mexican questions do not credit these reports. They are of the opinion that the Latin American diplomats concerned are awaiting rcsixinsea from their re spective governments to communications forwarded by the Ambassadors and Ministers Immediately following the dis closure of the Intentions of the United States toward Mexico at the Initial meeting last Thursday. These responses, It Is understood, will be received early this week and the conference doubtless will be resumed without delay. Cnrdma Arrives This Week. A good deal of significance is attached to the action of the Secretary of State In asking Senhor J. M. Cardora de Oll velra, the Brazilian Minister at Mexico city, to come to the United States. The Brazilian Minister has represented the diplomatic Interests of this Government at Mexico city since official relations between the two countries were broken. It Is understood that Henhor Cantata was Invited to come here nt the In stance of tho diplomats who Joined Sec retary Lansing In last Thursday's con ference. It Is the general expectation that he will take part In sessions to be held In New York. Tho State Depart ment Instructed Consul Canada at Vera Cruz to-day to extend every courtesy to Senhor Cantata, who will arrive there Wednesday en route to this country. Secretary Lansing, in commenting on his conference with Secretary McAdoo In New York emphaslted that the pri mary object of the meeting was to de vise a procedure for American repre sentation In the Pan-Amerlcai' financial and scientific conferences to bit held In lluenos Ayres. The financial conference Is a reassembling of the gathering that was held In Washington this spring, a project framed with a view to effecting closer commercial relations between this country and South American republics. Secretary Lansing said there were some affairs In relation to the two conferences In which the State Department was In volved and that Secretary McAdoo de sired to have them adjusted without de lay. This was done at the meeting to day In New York, according to Mr. Lansing. Villa Defeat Itrinrted. In a statement made public to-night by the Carranza aency the claim Is made that the Vllllstas under Oen. Urblno were defeated by the Consti tutionalists under Oen. Trevlno near Saltlllo. and in consequence, aword ln to the Carranzlstas, their force are ready to oocupy this Important rail road centre. The agency at.o asserts that the forces of the First Chief now occupy Durango, capital of the State of that name According to advlc.es received at the Carranza agency, the railway line between Mexico city and Toluca Is now being reopened for the purpose of shlpplnff to the capital pro. visions purchased by Carrama ifor re lief purposes. The claim Is nlso made that Carranza Is sending large sums of money to Mexico city to relieve the embarrassment caused by tne monetary situation there. Information was received here to-night that W. H, Francis, a newspaper corre spondent, has been arrested in Vera Cruz on a charge of transmitting libellous In formation to the foreign press. Frarcls Is a British subject. The Carranra agency Is Informed that he will be tried before a civil tribunal, Another corre spondent alleged to be guilty cf the same offence has taken refuge In the United States Consulate. The name of this cor respondent was rot given In the des patches lecelved at the Carranza agency and so far as Is known the State Depart ment has not been advised of the Inci dent.

It was learned from an authoritative suirce that the two Secretaries discussed the question of tho advisability of as certalnlns whether financial Interestw in this city would earn to consider the question of a loan to a new government III Mexico If tho Administration and tho A B. C. diplomats agreed on a plan. If the bankers are sounded, naturally, they will wish to know the details of the scheme nnd whether the Administration has nettled upon a definite man to hed a new government. Secretary Lansing, who has been conferring with Mexican diplomats In Washington, arrived In this city In the morning and went to the Hotel Bllt more. Secretary McAdoo came from his summer home In North Haven, Me., af ter having conferred last we-ek with President Wilson at Cornish, The two Secretaries were together for more than two hours, Ai'tvr their meetlrp . the. placo nf which was kept secret, Secretary lou sing hurried back to Washington with out making any statement for 0'ie press, Secretary McAdoo remained here, going In the evening to visit friends In West.

Secretary McAdoo refused to say a word In regard to the discussion jin tho Mexican situation. He said, however, that he will be In the city to-day and will proKibly return to Maine to-night. It Is believed that he will have confer ences with bankers to-day, If he was hot In touch with them last evening. STIRS CARRANZA'S IRE. Otintemnlan Minister I'tprlled ns "Pernicious Foreigner." .tpecfd ruble e;mfcA to Tn Stv Mexico City, Aug. . Officials say that they do not know the cause of the expulsion of Dr. Juan J. Ortega, Minis ter to Mexico from Guatemala, Oen. Gonzales merely having received a tele A'rophlo order from Carranza to the ef fact that Ortega must leavo the country within twenty-four hours. Jt Is not bellvej that Ortega's expul sion is connected with i evolutionary ex peditions across the Guatemalan border, but rather to Ortega's attitude among the 'diplomats here. It Is understewd that Car .ranza considers Ortega In the light of a "pernicious foreigner" who has been meddling In politics. Carranza's Iro Is believed to have been aroused by tie preenco of Guatemalan diplomats at the recent peace conference in Washlr g Iton. Mexico and Guatemala have rot been on Trlendly terms for n number of years. It Is officially denied here that t!.e Gorman Charge d'Affalres is to K e.t pelted, It Is officially announced that ll.e Constitutionalists have occupied the mammoth hydraulic power plant of the Mexican Light and Power Company on tho Necaxa, In the State of Pucbla, which supplies Mexico city, Toluca, Pachuca and other points. The occupation will give protection to the Necaxa employeee. The Carranzlstas have started train service out of Mexico city over several lines for short distances, They say they Intend to extend the traffic us repairs and military occupation continue, Jose Manuel Cardoso de Ollvelra, the Brazilian Minister, leaves Tuesday In a special train for Vera Cruz, with an es cort provided by Oen. Gonzales. He has been representing the Inteiests of the United States here. Ilrnslllnn Kino) Had Health Prompts lllm to Leave, Sptclat Cable Drtpateh lo Tat bc.v. Vf.iia CRM. Aug. 8. The Brailllan Minister to Mexico gave bad health as his reason for leaving the country. His arrival from Mexico city is expected In a day or two. t'nrrnnsa Hrsrnta Participation nf A II " In Conference. Wasiiinoton, Aug. 8. The belief In Washington is that Carranta In expeil In? Senor Ortega, the Guatemalan Min ister, from Mexico city was giving vent to his displeasure over the partclpatlon by the litln American Governments In the conference called by Secretary Lan sing to consider the Mexican sitmtlon. If this Is the real explanation of the withdrawal of the Guatemalan Minister It Is serious because It indicates that Carranza Is wiling to go to a consider able length .In showing his resentment. Such a spirit will make the situation all the more difficult for this Govern ment. VILLA READY TO LEAVE. Wants III Three Rivals Also to Qnlt Mexico for Good, El Paso, Tex., Aug, R, Gen. Villa re mained In Juarez to-day, awaiting the arrival of Ger.. Scott, Chief of Staff of the United States Army, for a conference on Mexican affairs. Officers attached to Villa's staff began arriving for a con ference with their chief, which will be held Monday morning. What this con ference Is to consider has not been said, but It Is be!lced that the officers are to give their Ideas upon plans for a peace conference with other -Mexican factions. Villa Is said by those who should know to be convinced of the utter col lapse of his effort to become dictator of Mexico, unit Is said to bo willing lo accept any measure of pence that will enable him to retire gracefully Beaten back, after controlling more than two thirds of Mexican territory a few months ago, until he holds only the country Im mediately along the Mexican Central Hailrnad from Juarez to Torremi, Villa Is said to be wT'lng to retire If he can do so with honor. While Villa talks with seeming confi dence of his future and continues to Import ammunition, the coming of Gen. Sceitt Is saUl to have been brought about by a suggestion from Villa himself, who hinted through Oeorge C. Carothera that he would quit If the United States would help him. Gen. Scott will arrive to-morrow to lay before Villa the plans of the United States for Mexican pacification nnd to receive Villa's views It Is said the United States plans to eliminate Villa, Zapata, ftbregnn and Carranta as Pres idential possibilities and ask the four, thiough delegates, to ngree upon some man considered strong enough to take up the task of pacifying the country Villa Is said to be willing even to retire to the United Slates, where he Is re puted to have enough wealth stoied to mnkc him Independent, and It Is said he will Insist that Carranta, Zapata and Obregon do the same Carranza forces under Obregon con. Untie to advance northward toward Torreon, However, it Is learned that the Carranta advance from Monterey against Saltlllo and Torreon has been halted pending peace parleys and that the advance from the south may he baited for the same reason. Villa has been In III Paso mice since arriving at the border, hut It Is reported to-night that he will be arrested If he comes to this side again. PRISONER HIS OWN JUDGE.

Morse Flees Riverside Home After An noimeing Second Wedding. MYSTKHY AHOt'T HUSHAX1) Mrs. Gurney T. Morse of .647 Hlver side Drive, who wrote letters to several newspapers on Saturday announcing that she hid marrlel "a lawyer of great ability and distinguished family" In de fiance of a court edict when she was divorced from her husband, and there fore believed she had "committed bigamy." seemed yesterday to have covered completely her melodiuniatle Might from the apartment house on Saturday night. Although she left In haste without baggage, gaining the street over the roof and down through the apartment house next dewr. no trace of her could be found. Equally baffling remained the name nnd whereabouts of the man to whom she said she was married ten days ago. All sorts of clues picked up lit the course of the day proved futile. Well known suffragists disclaimed any knowledge of Mrs. Morse's alleged nrtlvity for the suffrage cause, al though In her letters to the newspaiiers she lioi'leil of her suffrage conneotlons. Little If anything could be 'learned of her family, friends and past life. Ap parently ehe left her apartment on the first floor In excessive h.iMe. She oc cupied two rooms of the apartment leased by a Mrs. Nellie Hell, now In Hackettstow n, N. J. IJxamlnntlon of the place yesterday dlscleetl that the bed was topsy-turvy and tho desk and dresslrfg table were cleeired out. AH of her belongings seemed to be locked In a suit case left In the place. The win lows were open liirly In the morning a note was found telling the milkman not to leave milk ye.terday. Who It Is that Mrs. Morse says she has married Is a mystery. She de scribed him In her letters to the news papers aa a relative nf a Justice of the United States Supreme Court on his father's side and of 'a former Ambassa dor to Kngland on his mother's side. A man who fits that part of her de scription of her husband denied most positively last night that he had married a Mrs. Morse. Mrs. Morse's attorney. Col. Alex inder S, Bacon, Is In Yellowstone Park. The records of her divorce could not be searched yesterday and It was nlso Im possible to look up the records of the marriage lb ense bureiu. The only record available of Mrs. Gur ney T. Morse relates to an Incident In August, 101.1, when she had Hugh M. Crelghton, an Investment broker, ar rested In a suit for JH.nno for alleged fraud nnd deceit. Crelghton nfterward sued a newspaper for libel In connection with the case and Mrs. Morse was sub-pa-naed ns a witness In that suit. Mrs. Morse said at that time that she lost her husband In Kentucky, lived for a time In New Orleans and came to New York eight years before. She has lived at 517 Hlverlde Drive for about two years POLICE "NAVY" BEING FORMED. The Patrol anil Other llnnl Will llnte linnn Ahnaril, The police boat Patrol, called "Patsey" by the men.

CUM BE KSOM E I X M ET1I0 1 The Citizens Union disapproves of the home rule proposition reported to the Constitutional Convention on Thursday by the committee on cities, of which Seth Low Is the (halrman. Its objec tions nre set forth In mi analysis of the measure prepared by Laurence Arnold Tamer, chairman of the organization's; constitutional convention committee. In summarizing the main features of the proposals on tho basis of his analysis Mr. Tanzer said ! "The proposal does not confer 'home rule' In nny fair sense nf the term. Home rule means power granted to cities to govern themselves, This proposal gives no such power. It gives only power to propose to the Legislature measures for a city's government, to be granted or withheld by the Legislature at Its option : and even this power of petition extends only over a narrow field. "No power whatever Is granted to the people of n city, except that of proposing to the Legislature once In eight years a new charter. If that is rejected by the Legislature they cannot propose another until the eight jenrs are up. They cannot at any time or In any way control or have any voice In amending legislation. With the single exception above mentioned such power ns Is granted Is vested In the local authori ties without control by the people. "The means of exercising the narinvv powers granted are so cumbersome nnd obstructive as to render even those Illusory The adoption of a new char ter will require three elections, the labors of a chart' r commission and a sixty days suhmUstan to tho Legisla ture, ThN process may take a period of from one and n half to four years. "The present vicious system of special city legislation Is permitted to cnrtlnue Cities will still be subject to that con stant Interference by the Legislature with their local affairs which has given rlsa to the movement for home rule. "Partisan political control of municipal affairs wlU be perpetuated The great evil of the present system, an evil which underlies the complaint against special legislation and the entire home rule movement, Is the use of the cities as pawns in tho game of machine iiolltlca. This evil will continue so long as the party which happens to have amaJor"y In the Legislature can extend Its powers over the cities of the Suite. "All sense of responsibility will he de stroyed. When an act requires submis sion first to the people or to the loc.ii authorities and then to the Legislature neither will feel responsibility "Above nil. It faIN Utterly to provide for that local autonomy to which we must look both for the relief of the State Legislature from the Incubus of local affairs and for that growth nf enlighten ment, responsibility nnd efficiently in our cities upon which the future of democ racy depends, nnd which can come only from the full nnd unobstructive exercise of that right of local self-government which lies at the foundation nf demo cratic government," SKIPPER'S FAMILY STRICKEN.
