A severe trrangement of the American Gov ernment for withdrawing the Amerl cn troops from Vera Cruz, Mexico, was made today by Sir Lionel Cardon, former British .Minister to Mexico. Just before he sailed for Liverpool on the White Star liner Celtic. "The withdrawal of American troops from Vera Cruz Is a great shamo," said the English diplomat. "The presence there of American troops Influenced peo ple to go there. It was a place of safety -the only place of safety In Mexico, where a state of absolute anarchy ex ists. "There Is no government tn Mexico. o attempt is mndo to protect life, lib erty or property.

The association has begun a campaign against the threatened Increases In com mutation rales. The association charges that the new schedules have been drawn up without regard to the convenience of the great army of commuters. It lsal leged that tho lcstdcuts of some towns will bo obliged to move elsewhcro at great financial loss, A protest has alio been lodged with the commission by tho patrons of tho Pcmberton and Ulghtslown Itallroad, who, It Is alleged, are delayed when using trains, for forty-five minutes nt Pern- bcrlon when waiting for trains to Phila delphia. The residents along tho lines contend thnt they are entitled to better service, In view of the fact that the United Rail roads earn about 70 per cent, of the stock, and that the Pennsylvania Rail road, which leases the United Ttallroads, has no right to apply tho earnings to other branches to tho detriment of the peoplo of New Jersey. TRADE AGENTS FROM SODTH AMERICA TO INYESTMTEME Will Study Details of Phila delphia Commercial Mu seum for Plan to Aid In dustrial Expansion. A great new era of trade expansion and Industrial development for Philadel phia. Is presaged by two movements now under wny to rcstoro nnd win for tho United States tho trade of South Amorlca, which was virtually brought to a standstill by the European war. One of these move ments is ti tho nature of a high trlbuto to a Philadelphia Institution. It wilt bring to this city nntlvo representatives of South American countries to study what Philndelphians have learned of their lands. The visitors will be representatives of the Irfitln-Amcrica Consular Union of New York, and their Idea Is to organize without delay an International trndo In stitution In New York to promote trade reciprocity with United States manufac turers able to supply commodities that have been cut off by tho European war. The other plan now tinder way Is one of co-operation betweon the National Foreign Trade Council nnd a national committee, members of which were nnmed yesterday by Secretary Itedfleld, of tho Department of Commerce nnd Iabor. Ten of the foremost trade and commercial leaders In the country wero named as members of the committee, among them Alba B. Johnson, president of the Baldwin Locomotive Works. TO VISIT COMMERCIAL MUSEUM. The South Americans who will come tu this city will visit the Philadelphia Com mercial Museum, according to advices re ceived by Dudlev Bartlctt, chief of tho Foreign Affairs Bureau of the Museum. They will study every detail of the Insti tution's organization and will pick out desirable features to Ineoroorate In the International trndo body to bo formerl In New York. The Consular Union's membership In cludes a majority of the consular repre sentatives of South American countries stationed in New York. They have been laying plans for reciprocity In a series of conferences nt Washington with Gov ernment officials. It Is expected that the plan will be made public next week nfter It has been npproved by Secretaries Tted flold and Bryan before whom, It Is said. It has been laid. A permanent exhibit of the products of about twenty 1-ntin-Amerlcan countries will form one of the features of the plan. The institution will show South Americans how to sell their crops for cash, and how to exchange thorn for mnnufnetured ar ticles. Information as to domond In Bonth America will be supplied to United States manufacturers. Prior to the war the South American trade was vnlued at $1,000,000,000. NATIONAL COMMITTRrc MEMBERS. The other members of the Notional Committee, appointed by Secretnry Red Held yesterday. In addition to Mr. John son, are William A. Gaston, banker, Bos ton; Hnrry A. Wheeler, banker Chicago; Robi-rt Dollar, president of Robert Dollnr Steamship Company. San Francisco; John Barrett, director general of Pan-American Union ; IV. D. Simmons, president Sim mons Hardware Company, St. Louis, Mo.; Lwls W. Parker, Greenville. S. C; W. B. Campbell. Cincinnati, and Dr. Clarence W. Owens, Southern Commerclnl Con gress. Of these men. Messrs. Dollar, Johnson, Harrison and Simmons are members of thn National Foreign Trade Council. That body will mvt In New York today to make plans for extending the commerce of this country Into South America. The chalrmnn of tho Foreign Trade Council Is James A. Farretl. president of the United States Steel Corporation. Mr. Johnson declnred yesterday that the new committee will represent the Oovernment In co-operating with the National Trade Council. The chairman of the committee had not been picked, he said, nor did he know when It would meet to organize. Coincident with the news of the fore going plans quite a stir was created vnong Eastern steel men by Inquiries for steel- for export and the realization that the Pacille coast Is buying the domestlu production. Heretofore structural ma terial for Ban Francisco was brought across the Pacific, but the war has halted this and the supply Is now being taken from United States mills. So far the foreign Inquiries have not developed Into anything sufficiently tan gible to be called a demand, but never theless they are looked upon by steel men as highly encouraging. A decrease Is shown in sales for September so far as compared to the last half of August, but It Is believed there will be a gain In the remainder of the month that will put the output ahead of August. Interest also has been awakened In pig Iron by the foreign Inquiries, but It ts believed there will be no activity In this line untl steel shows Improvement. A furnace man gave It as his opinion that either prospects of peace or of a long war would stimulate the steel trade. GIRL KEEPS 'POISON PEN' NOTES SECRET FROM THEIR FATHER When He Receives One Himself Postal Authorities Are Called In and Dress maker Is Arrested. Accused of Bonding "poison pen" letters to fotir members of a Sharon Hill family, Miss Anna Btahl, a Sharon Hill dress maker, Is hold today under $300 ball to await the action of tho Federal Grand Jury next Monday. E. P. Tlmmons nnd his daughters, Mary, 25; Helen, 17, and Agnes, 15, who live In a largo house nt 20 Chester Pike, wero tho objects of lbj writer's attacks. Tho attacks extended over a period of two years and might have continued had the nnonymous writer conflncd attentions to the girls. But In December the writer began ad dressing Mr. Tlmmons, who then learned for the first tlmo that his daughters had been receiving letters. Ho appealed to the postal authorities, who accused Miss Stahl after an Investigation lasting nearly four months, Mrs. Tlmmons daughters, who had been getting tho letters for nearly two yenrs, tore them up and kept the attacks a secret. But two received by Mr. Tlm mons nnd two more which came to Miss Helen Tlmmons, who wns the principal object of attack, were turned over to the postal authorities. They have been Investigating since May. Miss Stahl wns arrested In a Gcr manlown house where she had gone to do some dressmaking. She denies nny knowledge of the letter writing. Mathew McVlcar, a postofllce Inspector assigned to the case, went to Miss Stahl on June 1 nnd Induced hor to copy two of tho lotters received by Miss Helen Tlm mons. When Mr. Tlmmons, a fish and oyster commission merchnnt at Water nnd Dock streets, received the letter, he had It put In tho hands of the postal authori ties. Three months' work by Inspector Mnthew McVlcar resulted in tho arrest of Miss Stahl. She denies having written tho letters, though her handwriting, ac cording to experts, conforms closely with that In the poison pen letters which hnve been etrenmlng Into the Tlmmons homo for tho Inst two years. The four letters, two of them written by Miss Stahl, wore submitted to T. II. McCool, a handwriting expert, who de clared they were all the work of the same person. The writer of tho poison pen lotters had tried to disguise her writing, but after tho first few linos assumed characteristics disappeared and the script grow natural. 100 LETTERS RECEIVED. All the letters sent to the Tlmmons girls were unprintable. There have been moro than a hundred In nil, McVlcar be lieves, and they came at Intervals of a few days. Most of them wero mailed In Philadelphia, but two which will be of fored as evidence came from Darby. Of all the lotters only four remain. The Tlmmons girls tore them up as soon a3 they arrived nnd said nothing about them. Finally, lrritnt.ed. It Is believed, by tho failure to arouse the girls to showing they had received the lettors, tho mysteri ous writer addressed Mr. Tlmmons. The first note reached him in December nnd tho second In Jnnuary. Both warned him that his daughters should be watched and contained vicious accusations. For some time Tlmmons tried unsuc cessfully to find who was writing the letters, and then offered the reward of 500. That failed, and he turned to the postal Inspectors. At first It wns believed that tho letters were Inspired by Jealousy, and on that assumption sovernl Sharon Hill young women were closely watched. When sus picion fell on Miss Stahl, however, that theory was discarded. Thoro has never been "a man In the case," according to the Investigators. A youth who wan boarding with the Stahls was sent away the day after McVlcar questioned their daughter, In order that suspicion could not be attached to her through his presence. It Is said he called twice at the Tlmmons home. "I am old enough to be his mother, anyway." Miss Stahl declared when his name was brought Into tho questioning. The cne Is a mystery to Mr. Tlm mons, tho father of the girls, who re ceived the letters. OFFERED REWARD FOR AUTHORS. Mr. Tlmmons offered n reward of $500 when he first learned the letters were coming Into his house, but efforts of private detectives to find who was writ ing them were futile. In May he appealed to the postal In spectors, and Mathew McVlcar set out to learn the identity of the writer. "It was a process of elimination that led us to suspect Miss Shaw," said Mc Vlcar today. A list of persons who might have written the letters waa prepared, but It was cut down until only Miss Stahl remained. This was last May. The evidence on which Miss Stahl was held yesterday was secured by MoVloar on June 1. That day he went to see Miss Stahl at her home. Miss Stahl Is a woman of 47. She and her mother and a younger brother havo lived In a small double house at Sharon Hill for ten years. The accused woman Is a dress maker, often employed by wealthy Phlla delphlans and residents of the suburbs. McVlcar found Miss Stahl at home and told her she was suspected of having written the letters to the Tlmmons girls, She denied It. "Why. Just to prove that those letters were not mine I'll write you a specimen," she told McVlcar- He had her copy two of the notes sent to Miss Helen Tlmmons, Miss Stahl was very nervous while Mc Vlcar questioned her, he says, and denied repeatedly that she had had any hand In the poison pen letters.

In a fort near Longwy a machine fof making them was found. Thus the cart ridges were supplied In this form by the army authorities. The wounds of our soldiers show the destructive effect of these dum-dum cartridges.
