Democratic Congressional
Committee Meets and Ef
fects a Reorganization.
WASHINGTON, May 9. Tho Demo
cratic congressional committee met to
night to reorganize for the next na
tional campaign. Tho keynote of tho
meeting was sounded in a statomout
read by Kepresentativo 'Lloyd of Mis
souri, tho retiring chairman of tho
committee, explaining President Wil
son's position regarding the work of
the committee.
This statement of administrative
views, to which President Wilson gave
his approval today, made it clear that
tho president had no preference of can
didates for chairmanship of the com
mittee, and set forth that the main
idea was to accomplish effective work
by united action in tho coming cam
paign and that senators should bo
among the members of the congres
sional committee, inasmuch as various
states havo provided for popular vote
for United States senators.
Lloyd Not Candidate.
Mr. Lloyd presided. He had already
announced that ho was not a candidato
for re-election.
In his statement Representative
Lloyd said:
About April 20 I gave notice
that the new Democratic congres
sional committee would meet for
organization on the morning of
April 30. About 1:30 in the after
noon of April 29 the president
callod mo to the telophono and
asked that tho moeting be post
poned in order that there might be
a conference in regard to tho work
of the two committees tho na
tional and congressional Bomo

was agreed upon in the last cam
paign. In obodienoo to that request I

Reply of the Government to
Protest Against the Anti
alien Land Bill Is Most
Deftly Worded.
Suggestion Is Made That a
Series of Conferences Be
Held, if the Proposed Act
Becomes a Law.
WASHINGTON, May 9. The Inter
national Nows Sorvico may present as
reliable these three propositions as sub
stantially the first reply of the United
States government to tho protest of
First That by reason oC the
political status of tho California
alien land law as yet unsigned by
tho governor of California, the
equity of protest in international
law has not yet arisen so as to jus
tify tho present protest of Japan.
Second That tho federal gov
ernment has not violated tho treaty
of 1911 by the United States and
Third The Unitod States sug
gests to the imperial government
at Tokio that there be a serios of
conforoncos on the question which
will ariso if the California alien
land law is put into operation in
tho state of California.
Tho official statoment has not been
given out, but the readers of the In
ternational News Sorvico may rely
upon it that this is the rough draft of
the first official cabinet answer to the
Japnneso government.
Whatever statement to the contrary
may be made, it is certain that these
propositions are already in the hands
of Viscount Chinda and have twen sent
in ciphor to the Japanese government.
What Reply Means.
This reply of the government reduced
to an analysis means this:
First The propositions as a
wholo constitute a plea for delay.
Second Tho first proposition is
perfectly sound for tho reason that
Governor Johnson not yet having
signed the Webb bill, the Califor
nia law is not yet what the diplo
mats call an accomplished fact, and
a foreign government cannot base
an equitable claim on. a theoretic
Third The second proposition
merely states an obvious fact
which amounts to a platitude, but
which is allowable in diplomacy.
Fourth The third proposition
rovealB tho last resort plan of the
United States to avoid making tho
question acuto on both Bides as It
is admittedly acute In the Japa
nese feeling. It suggesta a means
to delay or avoid a serious de
cision. It states that if Governor
Johnson signs tho bill and it is put
into operation, that Embassador

USXICO CITY, May 9. -President
Victoriano H-uerto during his confor
enco yesterday with Henry Lane Wil
son, the American embassador, stated
very clearly tho position of Mexico in
rolalion to tho United States. Tho fol
lowing official version ' of tho confer
ence was given to tho Associated Press
Provisional President' Huerta re
spectfully otated to Embassador "Wil
son (that diplomat haying referred ,to
official matters) that the government
of Mexico waa disposed to arrango
the affalra pending- between It and the
government of tho United States.
It was pointed out, however, that
for the time being tho embassador
should understand tho necessity which
the government of Mexico has for ab
stalning from treating any official '
matter, with tho exception of urgent
affairs of ordinary prooednre, for
the 3lmplo reason that during the
time the government of the United
States did not recognize the govern
ment of Mexico, all agreements would
bo Ineffective. In view of the fact
that the government of Mexico has no
personality before the government
of tho United States.
To Protect Inhabitants.
This was tho substance of tho con
ference between his excellency, Em
bassador Wilson, and the president of
tho republic of Mexico, General Vic
toriano Huerta.
In addition, howover, the govern
ment of Mexico, whether recognized
or not by the Unitod States, has
adopted, and will always adopt, meas
ures for the security of tho Inhab
itants of the country, whether its
own natives or foreigners, and thl3
has been demonstrated by the atten
tion givon to tho Just representa
tions of those who have beon In any
mannor Injured in past revolutions.
The United States and all tho peo
ples of Buropo have proofs that the
government of Mexico la spocially
pledged to givo guarantees to every
body without distinction of nationality.
Standing of Embassador.
MEXICO CITY. May 9. Honry
Lane Wilson, United States embassa
dor to Mexico, has no official stand
ing in Mexico in the eyes of tho pros-,
ont administration. This is not a mat
ter of record, but was unofficially
stated by Provisional Prcsidont Huerta
today. JIo said:
"As a pergonal" friend I am always
glad to treat witil Mr. Wilson, but
diplomatically ho has no standing."
Tin's has not boon mado cloar m of
ficial declarations, but the public and
tho .pross generally havo not. failed to
place this, intornrotation on tho situa
tion. Embassador WilGon reported tho in
cident to t tho .state department at
Washington, although ho may possibly
have confined himself to the official
declarations by Provisional President
Huorta, which leave him a quasi-standing
aB a diplomat.

Men Resume Work Today;
Compromise Agreement
The brewery workers' strike was set
tled at 11 o'clock last night and every
man who has been out will roturn to
work this morning. Approximately 250
mon are affected.
Tho settlement is based on a compro
mise of the demands made by the men.
Each side mado concessions as tho con
ferences progressed and last night a
satisfactory settlement was Teached.
Under the schedule of wages and con
ditions agreed upou the bottlers get an
increase of $1 a week; they asked for
an advance of $1.50. In the engineer
ing department the hours have been,
reduced from twelve to ten hours, with
out a reduction in pay. Drivers will
receive $21.50 a week, tho rato for
merly paid to certain classes of drivers
only. Pormor3' the men worked nlno
hours for four- months and ten hours
for eight mouths of the year. Under
the new arrangement they will work
uino hours for six months and ten
hours for six months. This plan is
governed by tho rush of work in cor-
taiu seasons. Overtime will bo paid at
the rate of 50 cents an hour instead of
40 cents, tho former rato.
The bust of fooling has prevailed on
both sides throughout tho period of sus
pension. Brewers aud omployocs havo
consulted together in a spirit of fair
ness and each proposition, whether
made by employers or employees, was
given duo consideration. "The settle
ment of tho dispute was scarcoly over
in doubt, the only question being as
to the Jougth of time it would require
to reach an agreement on the numorous
technical points involved.

Not until tho Olympic was four days
out did the Identity of Mrs. Thaw become
known. Then the nows quickly circulated
that the slight young- women and her
child were Evelyn Nesblt Thaw and
"Pompom." She became tho center then
of attraction and many endeavored to
make her acquaintance. This so annoyed
her that she remained In her state room
and devoted her entire attention to her
little son.
In speaking of her plans for the Im
mediate future, Mrs. Thaw said:
"I Intend to return to tho stage short
ly, ulthough I urn not overjoyed at the
thought. I really don't want to go back
to it, but I must make a living Romohow,
and then I have my boy to support for
a long time. The Now York and London
managers have been asking me to return

held out promises of a large salary, and
