The announcement of results came at the end of a Ions wait, the polls having been closed at 10 o'clock. The general comment upon the result was that as a whole Mrs. Story ticket had fared bet ter than Mrs. Horton's. The final result of the election of pres ident general seemed to hinge upon how Mrs. Bryan, a "harmony candidate," will use her strength. It is more than enough to elect cither Mrs Story or Mrs. Horton. Mrs. Bryan has declared, however, that she was In the race for herself. Jtnd" to stay, and her friends say she w ill win. There was tremendous applause for Mrs. Story when the result was an- nounced, many of the delegates rising ito their feet to cheer. Mrs. Story arose from her seat in the balcony and bowed j the applauding women below and ..'bout her. t ( Mrs. Horton was not in the hall. n VMrs. Bryan, seated on the fetage t as vice president general in the midst of her chief allies, received the announce ment with a smile. Aaacmlly llnll Crowded. Most of the seats in the assembly hall had been occupied all the evening by anxious delegates and other D. A. R. members. The voting, which had gone steadily forward since 10 o'clock yester day morning, ended at 10 o'clock last night, when it was announced that enly a few delegates entitled to vote had not cast their ballots. In the three hours of waiting that fol lowed State regents and other officials made reports. Mrs. Ida Rose Woodbury tin Hied the women with her remarkable speech on the schools of the Appalachian Mountains. Also, when the programme ran out. State and national songs were sung, and HtUe groups of women in the hall started. "We Won't Go Home Till Morning," "Good-night. Toadies," and several other old favorites, which swept through the whole audience. Mrs. Matthew T. Scott, the president general, was in the chair, and presented the speakers. There was a deep hush as the members of the committee hav ing the votes in charge appeared, and th official announcement that Mrs. Story had led the ticket was heard i silence which lasted for a moment after the full vote for president general had been called. The delegates cheered spontaneously, but many of them began puting on their w raps even while they stood to honor their candidate. Manv of them were nearly exhausted with the long day'a work. The whole of yesterday's interest cen tered naturally around the balloting for officers general. 'Though the voting was done by State, delegations in alphabetical order, so that the routine of business was not broken within tho hall, where Mrs. Scott, the president general, presided, yet there were frequent diversions caused by the outgoing or incoming of Daughters on the business of voting. Once or twice, the halls were jammed, so that there was delay, and the generad comment was that the Daughters of the Ameri can Revolution seemed to have out grown their home. In the main, however, the voting was done expeditiously with, the machine placed In rooms upon the second floor. The balloting went forward at the rate of about 100 an hour, and a system of electric signal bells, which gave notice to the chair when one delegation had ended, and another might begin voting, made it possible for the booths to be occupied practically all the time. There was a discussion over rights of candidates or their friends to supply tickets to those going into the booths. In the hails and lobbies, there was open campaigning, and many tickets were Continued on Pasre Tvro.

RESENTMENT IS PROBABLE Representative May Go to Sacramento to Keep in Touca witk Situation. The anti-Japanese land legislation pending in the California Legislature was yesterday the subject of confer ences with President Wilson at the White House, in which Secretary of State Bryan. Secretary of Interior Lane, and Sccietary of Agriculture Houston participated. These conferences follow ed the visit of the Japanese Ambassador, Viscount Chinda. to the White House and the State. Department Tuesday, when it is understood that the Presi dent and Mr. Bryan were informed that tho Dronosed modified legislation in Cali fornia is highly objectionable to his government. One new proposal was talked over by the President and his advisers. It has been suggested that the President send a representative to Sacramento, to get in close touch with the legislative situa tion and advise the President of develop ments. While the avowed purpose of cnrJi n move would be to keen the President better informed of develop ments in the State legislature, it is nnnfliinnttv oxnected. that should this plan be adopted, the President's repre sentative would exert a strong restrain ing Influence upon the Mate Doay. The Japanese Ambassador has already innrio it r.loar. however, that he Is not so much interested in the form which h ontL.Tnnanese legislation takes as In its substance and effect. Even If the California law, as finally enacted, should respect the treaty rights of the Japanese, it would not ameliorate the situation materially, so far as the feelings of the Japanese are concerned. Even offi cio ic nf the State Department are con vinced that whatever the form of the law, Japan will be resentful against tne California Legislature for passing the law. and against tho Federal govern ment for not finding some way to pre vent the legal elimination of the Japa nese farmer from California. If their treaty rights are not vioiatea, r.mnic horw. find it difficult to see how Japan can do anything to-redress what she has informed the United States gov ernment she considers an injustice to ,,. nonntn Tt is exnected. however, that Japanese resentment will result In at tempts at reprisals in some indirect manner.

"I am going for a pleasure trip, for I have just finished school and I want recreation and I want to see Italy, But I don't, intend to lose time In gaining new knowledge. I have no definite purpose in this trip nor have Mrs. Harvey and I any definite Itinerary. "Mrs. Harvey's daughter, who Is nearly my own age, Is in school In Rome and will join us on my Alice-in-Wonderland trip. For that's what I want it to be." "What are your plans for the future is It a specific work or is it marriage?" Tho pretty dimples about the mouth came and the pretty face broke Into a smile. "Maybe both who knows?

I intend to specialize lateron educational work to aid the mountain folks of Tennessee and Ken tucky. "Those people have adhered so closely to the customs of their ancestors that some of their children, I am told, carry names that are entire Biblical verses." "But marriage that Is something that is definite In your life?" "Oh, yes. I suppose as a girl of nine teen I should be thinking of marriage. but I do not You see co-education makes girls and boys remain longer In the fam ily relation, so to speak.

Holy Fatker Bids Servants Farewell aid Dictates Will Receadliation witk BrouW Is Effected. Rene, April IT, 4:45 a. mt The Pope Is reported to be resting; Qnletly. He hai dosed darlntc considerable period of the night, and fel attendant, have feared to disturb him to give him hla honrly noarlshment. Rome, April 17 (3 a. m.). The condition of the Pope is reported as calm. He has been dozing for some time, but his sleep, has been fitful. His temperature now is about normal. His strength Is plainly decreasing each hour, and It 'is neces sary to administer heart stimulants hourly to maintain his apparent strength. It Is evident to those about the Pon tiff's bedside that he still retains some thing of his rugged constitution, and with the aid of the Injections of stro phanti and digitalis is making a remark able fight for Ufa The Pope's brother Angelo; his bisters, Anna and Maria, and nephew Mgr. Paro Un, remained in the papal chamber un'U 1:30 a. m., when they retired to apart ments in the opposite wing of the palace to spend the remainder of the night. Slay Withhold Announcement. It was learned tonight that the Italian government has tacitly agreed to give Vatican messages precedence over all ex cept official government messages in event of the Pope's death In order that the Vatican may be able to notify the nuncios an dforelgn cardinals before a. public announcement of his decease is made. Prof. Ettor Marchlafava, chief papal physician, who has continued optimistic throughout the Pope's illness, practically admitted this evening that he had aban doned all hope of the ability of His Holiness to rally. Pope Plus realized today that his death is Inevitable and summoned his retinue of personal attendants to the papal chamber, where he bid each farewell and administered the Pontifical blessing. Tho pneumonia symptoms ffectlng the Pontiff have caused1 a severe congestion of the left lung aed thorax, and it is from this source that the greatest danger tQ the Holy Father's life Is feared. Tn tfift early afternoon the Pope suffered a severe parojysm of coughing, during1 which It was feared he would suffocate. Stiinnlnntx Arc Administered. Strophantis and digitalis have been ad ministered to His Holiness almost con stantly during the last twenty-four hours, in hopo of stimulating the heart and allaying the fever. AH members of the Pope's family who are in Rome are waiting for the final summons to the bedside. Every preparation has been made at the Vatican for the Pope's death. The Roman lawyer Patrlarcha was summoned this afternoon to draw up the Pontiffs will. Patriacha is tho legal rep resentative of the Holy See, and drew up the -sv III of Pope Leo XIII. The most affecting scene whloh has occurred during the entire illness of the Holy Father took place in the papal bed chamber today when An gelo Sarto, tho Pope's brother, was admitted to his brother's presence for the first time In many years. Angelo threw himself at the foot of the Pontiff's bed, and while his body shook with sobs, begged forgiveness for the trouble which he has caused his brother since being elevated to the pontifical throne. A suave smile wreathed the emaciated face of the Pope, and in a low voice tho Holy Father commanded his brother to rise and come to him. The Pope thn embraced his brother and told him that he had long since forgiven him. as well as forgotten the disagreement. The Pope spoke In his native Venetian dialect, which he has used exclusively slnco be coming dangerously ill. It was learned tonight from friends of the Sarto family that the disagreement which existed among the family of Pope Pius was caused by the persistent re fusal of tho Pontiff to- exercise his office for the benefit of any members of his family. Following the usual examination of Pope Pius by Prof. Ettore Marchlafava and Dr. Andrea Amici, the following bulletin was issued tonight: "His holiness passed a tranquil day, which was feverless. His temperature this evening was 99 degrees Fahrenheit. The bronchial and catarrhal affection remains in the same condition as it was this morning." While this bulletin set at rest for tho moment rumors which had been current during the afternoon, that the Pontiff was in a critical condition and had suf fered a severe rise in temperature about 3 o'clock, the- fact that the bronchial symptoms which have invaded the left lung, causing much inflammation and congestion, have not yielded to the treat ment Is giving much alarm. ConfEhlur May Caase Death. It Is believed on all sides that the Pcfpe's death will occur during one of the fits of coughing, which are brought about by his attempt to rid himself of congestion of his throat and lungs. Decolte the somewhat assuring bulletin issued this evening, an air ,of extreme pessimism pervades the Holy City. After the events which have transpired during the present Illness of his holiness, few persons acept the optimistic bulletins at their apparent value. Sir Edrrard to 'Accompany King-.

REDFIELD MAKES ADDRESS Growth of Apartment Houses in the Capital Is Deplored by John Ihlder. Mrs. Woodrow Wilson attended the meeting of the Woman's Department of tho National Civic Federation, held at Rauscher's yesterday morning, and heard pleas for support of the associa tion's plans to improve alley housing conditions in the Capital, a review of work accomplished during the year, sug gestions for general welfare work, and advice as to housing conditions through out the city. The meeting, the final one of the season, was presided over by Mrs. Archibald Hopkins. The scope and nature of the work of the woman's department was described by Mrs., Hopkins in her opening address. Mrs. Ernest P. Bicknell, a member of the central committee on housing, told of conditions and the association's plans for bettering them. Secretary Redflcld dis cussed welfare work In general, and spc-Ke of errors to be avoided. In the final speech, John Ihlder, field secretary of the National Housing Association of New York, deplored the growth of the apart ment house, and counseled his auditors "to keep Washington a city of small homes." A large audience, composed of many of Washington's best known women, heard the addresses. Members of the Jewish Alliance and the Consumers' League were present and took part in the meeting. The ushers were Lord Eustace Percy, of the British Embassy, and Arthur Willert. Mrs. Bicknell dealt In her talk with the subject of most Interest to the woman's department in describing the work that has been mapped out for Improving liv ing conditions among the alley dwellers of Washington. The work to be done Is much like that known In London and Philadelphia as the Octavla Hill plan of reclaiming and Improving alleys and their Inhabitants. Thcr work is actually being initiated in Washington, Mrs. Bick nell said. The Sanitary Improvement Company has turned over to the housing committee 214 alley houses to be admin istered under the plan. Secretary Ucdfleld Speaks. Secretary of Commerce Redfield spoke of the right and wrong ways of prose cuting welfare work, and gave It as his opinion that such activities, however well meant, are worthless when forced from abovo by unwilling recipients. Mr. Ihdler spoke of the Importance to the country at large of the example of the National Capital, and hoped that its social conditions might "be made as near ideal as possible. The work of the Woman's Department of tho National Civic Federation for the past year was reviewed by Mrs. Hopkins before the other speakers were Intro duced. In its work the .organization has had the aid of the Society for the Pre vention of Tuberculosis, the Associated Charities, the Monday Evening Club, the Diet Kitchen, the Instructive Visiting Nurses Society, and other organizations. She concluded her talk with a plea for assistance from those able to give in order that conditions In the alleys may be Improved. During the hot months of summer. Mrs. Hopkins said, the death rate among babies in some of these alleys Is as high as one in three. Conditions in such places then will make quite a contrast with the pleasant sur roundings of many of her auditors at seashore ana In the mountains, she pointed out Mrs. Hopkins" said that membership and active interest are pre ferable to mere financial contributions, and that such support is needed if the organization is to continue its growth and work. She reported a balance on hand of $537 and an increase In member ship from 51 to 00. BY PRESIDENTS ORDER REVOLUTION JUNTA IS ESTABLISHED HERE Members of Madero Family Throw Their Lot with Got. Carranza. WON'T RECOGNIZE LOANS . A' junta representing the Carranza revolution In Northern Mexico was es tablished in Washington last night by Francisco Gonzales Gante. who arrived here yesterday In company with Julio Madero, brother of the last President of Mexico. The announcement of the or ganization of this junta is the first pos itive indication that the members of the Madero family and tnelr supporters have thrown their lot with Gov. Car ranza, the rebel leader in the State of Coahuila. Senor Gante declared last night that he had received a telegram from Gov, Carranza announcing that the latter will refuse to recognize any loan made by the Huerta government He has sent warnings to this effect to the bankers of Jew York, Paris and London, with whom the Huerta government has re cently been negotiating for the purpose of effecting a large loan. Collapse of the Huerta government in Mexico before the onslaught of revolu tionists in the North, and outbreak of hostilities between Gen. Huerta. the pro visional President of Mexico, and Grn. Fells Diaz, leader of the late revolution, were predicted here yesterday by Julio Madero. brother of the late President, and Francisco Gonzalez Gante, revolu tionary agent. Gante declared that relations between Gen. Huerta and Gen. Diaz arc already strained, owing to their rivalry for the Presidency. "The States of Mexico are honey combed with revolution," said Gante. "Huerta, in order to protect himself, is keeping 3.000 infantry and cavalry at the national palace, while Diaz has withdrawn to his country place, a few miles outside of the city, and has taken about all the Federal artillery with him. "The Huerta government Is Just what might be expected of one founded on treason, murder, and deceit. The con stitutionalists in the North are gradu ally driving back Huerta's troops, and it will take only a few weeks to have Mexico City Isolated and Invested from all sides." Both Madero and Gante said they ex pected important-news in a day or two from Carranza, the rebel governor of Coahuila. who controls a large part of that State with an army. From the Mexican Embassy advices of quite the contrary nature were given out yesterday. It was stated that rebel bands in Mexico are surrendering almost dally, and that negotiations are under way for the withdrawal of Zapata from the field of opposition to the government. The early collapse of the revolutionary movement In the north is predicted by the embassy dispatches. State. Department reports strike a me dium between the statements of the Ma dero faction and representatives of the Huerta government. Indications yester day were that the situation In the north is slightly worse, while conditions in the south remain about the same, with the Huerta government in control. Mexico City is reported absolutely quiet. DIPLOMACY NECESSARY TO DECIDE QUESTION OF MEXICAN PRISONERS Secretary of War Garrison has put it squarely up to Secretary of State Bryan to decide what shall be done with the COO and more Mexican Federal soldiers and Yaqul Indians hel by United States troops along the Mexican border. The former Federals and Indians came over to the United States at various times recently following defeat in the battles between Federal and rebel troops. They surrendered to the United States troops, and were at once disarmed and held prisoners. Meantime, they are eat ing up Uncle Sam's rations to the tune of about $2j0 a day. gold, besides diverting a large numbeV of American Boldlers from their ordinary duties to guard and care for them WILLIS L. MOORE IS REMOVED BY 'Gross IrrcjuUntiej in Office' Charged in Official Statement CHARLES T. BURNS UNDER SUSPENSION President Wilson yesterday sum marily dismissed Willis L. Moore, chief of the Weather Bureau, for alleged irregularities in the con duct of his office. At the same time the President suspended Charles L. Burns, foreman of the Weather Bureau's printing office, and took official cognizance of an investigation, now under way, which may result in the removal of a number of employes on the ground that they have been "un duly active" in using the public service for "private and personal ends." The "private and personal ends" referred to, it is officially admitted, were the furtherance of a cam paign for the appointment of Moore as Secretary of Agricul ture in the Wilson Cabinet. Tho charges of gross irregu'aritiea made against the Weather Bureau chief relate to the same activity. Caused liy Moorc'a Boom. Secretary of Agriculture Houston, in a statement last night, acknowledges that these charges against the Weather Bu reau chief are of such a grave nature that the Department of Justice has been called upon to investigate them. No de tails in regard to the charges are ofil cially given, except that they grow out of Mr. Moore's efforts in his own behalf to land a Cabinet Job. As soon as President Wilson's action became known it was recalled that Rep resentative Fowler of Illinois a day or two ago introduced in the House a reso lution calling for an Investigation Ir.to the conduct of Moore's Bureau. Among other things, the Fowler resolution called for Information concerning the follow ing: "What circulars and other printed matter, printed at the expense of tho government, were used by the chief of the Weather Bureau in his campaign for Secretary of Agriculture during the last fiscal year, and what v. as the amount of money so expended." The Fowler resolution also asked for light on the following: "What Journeys were performed by Charles T. Burns, an emplove of the Weather Bureau, under official orders from the Chief of the "Weather Bureau, and under what Instructions during the period from July 1. 1912, to February CS. 1913?" Statement or Expcnnea. The Fowler resolution also calls upon the Chief of the Weather Bureau to make a statement of the amount ex pended in official traveling expenses for the Weather Bureau in November and December. 1312. and January and Febru ary, 1913, as compared with the amount expended in the corresponding months of the previous four fiscal years. The months referred to are the ones in which Prof. Moore was active in conducting his campaign for appoint ment to the Wilson Cabinet. The ap propriation for the Weather Bureau is made in a lump sum last year of J600.00O to be expended under the direc tion of the head Of the WrnthM- Rnrou and Representative Fowler's resolution oDMousiy sought for an accounting of certain of the Bureau's expenditures. It has been charged that Burns, the foreman of the printing office in the Bureau, was particularly active in tho furtherinir of the Moora oamnnii-n v,- a Cabinet job. It has been said that he visited as an organized labor man, typo graphical unions In manv n.irt ,f ' th country, urging them to draw resolutions asKing ior tne appointment of Moore to a Cabinet place. The labor unions were solicited on the ground that Moore In times past had been a fellow member of the union, and that he was onHtiH tr. their support as an organized labor man. It was acknowledged at the Depart ment of Agriculture that the govern ment's investigation of the Weather Bu reau was still under way, but that the evidence already laid before th. rrr. dent was considered sufficient to war rant the summary dismissal of Chief Moore. Prof. Moore submitted his resignation to Mr. Wilson in the usual way on March A. It was announced on March 15 that the President had accepted the paper, with the understanding, however, that it Continued on Page Three.
