Prominent "clergymen and members of the laity Joined In expressions of appre ciation yesterday, for the act cf the President In issuing a proclamation, of ficially designating the second Sunday in May as Mothers' Day."

Russell, pastor St. Patrick's Catholic Church. In. a state ment prepared for the Washington Herald yesterday, said: "The decision of Congress and the President to recognize officially, one day In the year when the mothers of the nation will be honored by the whole people. Is a most laudable art. No nation can rise higher than the standard of its mothers and to the mothers of America we owe what ever (we have gained in the movement tonard a higher and nobler type of American manhood and womanhood."

According to the report received from Admiral Badger. the Kronprinzessln Je ille reached Vera Cruz at 6 o'clock yesterday morning. She had left Puerto, Mexico, Frldal night, and the navy of ficers figured that she had reached that port Frldaj morning. This would have given her plenty of time to have un loaded her cargo of war materials. If that nas intended. The Bat aria Is not due at Puerto, Mexico, for ten days or more. It was apparent that the administration officials were greatly relieved by the new turn of events. In the War Department, however, preparations continued to go forward which indicated anything but confidence in the ability of the mediators to Jjring about a peaceful adjustment of the situation Secretary of War Garrison continued his efforts to obtain transports for the government and last night It was reported that the War Department had made arrangements for the chartering of eleven transports. Appeal to Mediators. Before the United States received word that the German arms and ammunition were to be returned, there is good rea son to believe that steps were taken to protest to Huerta through the mediators against the acceptance by him of these munitions of war. When Secretary Bryan was asked whether such a communica tion had been made he evaded a direct answer. It Is understood that the United States represented to the mediators that the ac ceptance by Huerta of these cargoes of arms and ammunition would constitute a violation of the assumed armistice pending the mediation proceedings. Such a communication would amount to a warning that the United States might feel obliged to take steps for its own protection in the event of Huerta's" Ig noring of the protest. Secretary Bryan yesterday said that the understanding with the mediators by both the United States and Huerta was that no&tmties should be suspended rjend Ing the mediation proceedings and that the military status quo should be main tained Apparently the United States mas prepared to contend that the ac ceptance of these military supplies by Huerta would result In a change of the status quo. International law experts In Washington were not Inclined, however, to take this government's view seriously on thlj point. It was said that this gov ernment could not expect Huerta to fore go all shipments of arms and ammuni tion for use In his campaign against the constitutionalists while the mediation proceedings were pending. o Violation" Garrison. These experts were Inclined also to regard the recent activities of the United States military forces Just as much open to question as Huerta's ac ceptance of arms and ammunition. It was pointed out that Gen. Funston has strengthened his lines outside Vera Cruz, and that one transport of United States troops had been landed at the Mexican port aftei the under standing was entered into. O.i the other hand. Secretary of War Sarrison contended that there had been no violation of the status quo by an extension of the American lines at Vera Cruz.-He said that the lines from ,the first had included the pumping sta tion at Tejar. and that these had merely -been, strengthened. He added that Gen. Funston had not been or Jered to push his lines forward. MS HUERTA'S ' RELEASE AMERICAN BRIG. - .. San Diego, CaL. May S. A wireless re ceived herp today from the U. S. S.

NEW ZEALAND GIVES ITS WOMEN RIGHT TO VOTE Remarkable' Savages Come in Contact with White Man. Says Geographic Society's Statement A little more than half a century ago cannibalistic feasts were held by the Maoris tribe of savages of New Zealand; today, members of the race are members of the New Zealand Parliament, and Maori women, as well as the white wom en of New Zealand, exercise the right to vote. They are In many respects the most remarkable savages with whom the white man has come In contact, ac cording to a statement given out by the National Geographic Society, at Wash ington, yesterday. "When the English first occupied the Islands. In the early part of the nine teenth century. It Is estimated that there were about 100,000 Maoris In New Zea land," says the statement. "They were divided Into tribes, each tribe having its own unwritten laws regarding. land, cul tivation, and other social matters. The tribes were constantly fighting. The Eng lish found that they had a genius ror war, showing unusual ability In building, fortifying, and defending stockades, and they experienced considerable difficulty in subduing them. The saagrs tilled the soil with care; as carters and decorators they were unrivaled In the Oceanic world, and they displayed great original ity In the design and perfection In the execution of rock paintings, and In carv ing the ornamental figures of their dwellings, their boats, and sacred Incis ures. "The Maoris were also noted for their tattooing, which was designed to clothe as well as ornament the body. Whoever refused to undergo the protracted tor tures of tattooing required at every Im portant event of his life, was regarded as a person by hi own consent fore doomed to slaver-. The men were actual. ly depilated In order to increase the sur face for tattooing, while for the young women the operation was limited to the lips, whence the term 'blue lips' applied to them by the English. There are about 33.000 Maoris left. These have retired lo the northern prov inces of New Zealand, where certain reservaiions nave oeen set apart as their exclusive property. The Maori children attend schools regularly. Such of them as continue into the higher branches of learning are said to be worthy rivals of white students. Some of the Maoris have become landed pro prietors; they are proud of their right to vote, and especially of the fact that tneir women were given this privilege at th same time that It was given to the white women of New Zealand."

Ophthalmologists and Opticians. 717 Fourteenth Street N. W. HOUSTON SPRINGS SOME SURPRISES Methods of Secretaryof Agri culture Are New to Poli ticians. HE DECLARES OPEN WAR His Reports Are Not Complimentary Documents American Farmer Has Been Used to. It has already become evident that the new Secretary of Agriculture does not Intend to hold his position by means of "soft sawder" either for the politicians or the farmers. In fairly blunt language, according to current opinion, he has been telling the former to mind their own business and the latter to learn theirs. We are still In the pioneer stage of farm ing, he declares, and less than 12 per cent of our farm land Is yielding even fairly full returns. We have reached the place now where we must do real think ing and planning. We have been reck less and wasteful, suffering the penalty of a too' great case In living and in making a living. As a people we have been bent on building up great Industrial centers and have let our agriculture grow up haphazard, like Topsy. He dares to speak of the "existing chaos" in our agriculture and to more than In timate that It Is due to the fault of the farmer. Some of the plain things he says about us are amazingly frank: "We had." he sas. "better face the fact frankly that we are relatively In efficient, take stock of our shortcomings, and earnestly seek for the remedy. That we have practically reached the stage where we have ceased to be an exporting nation of food products and are becom ing dcepndent on foreign nations for the necessaries of life, is a commentary on our use of the opportunities bestowed upon us." Xen Word to Americans. Now this is not the way In which the American people are accustomed to be ing addressed by their official servants in Washington. We usually have large figures paraded before our eyes showing how we lead the world In this crop or that Mr. Houston uses large figures also, but he uses them to shame us. He tells us of K3.00O.0n0 acres of arable land, only 400.000,000 acres of which are Improved, and only If) per cent of these reasonably well cultivated. He tells us our rural schools are a failure, our methods of distribution are etude and bungling, our rural hygiene undeveloped, our country roads a dis grace. Three things, he says, are a souroo of constant wonder to him: First. why most of the teachers In the rural districts continue to teach; second, why communities continue to employ them on any terms: third, "why a man who has any regard for tne future oi nis chil dren will remain in the rural districts as they exist today, if he can possibly get out." The averase salary of a teacher In the rural districts, he tells us. Is but $300 a jear. In the rich State of Illinois it ranges from J"50 to JtOO a year. In Vermont. Maine, and North Carolina It is but 00 a year. He knows what he Is talking about. "Our country teachers," he says, "com monly teach In one-room buildings. I taught In such a building and boarded around. It was unpalnted and uncetled, and a mile from the nearest house. The yard, cut out of the woods, was filled with weeds and stumps. My pupils ranged from seven to twenty-six years of age. We almost froze In the winter and burned up In the summer." Thousands and thousands of such schools still exist, he asserts. Pinna Jinny Ttrfornn. That Mr. Houston is more concerned about Improving the conditions of living back on the farm than in Increasing the crops Is shown from what. If correctly stated, follows: What he has In mind Is to develop good schools, competent doctors, places of amusement, system of sanitation and rural credits. He Is also concerned about the substitution of a good'central church for three or four weak and struggling ones. His department. If he has his way, will work along all these lines, includ ing meat-Inspection, animal and plant quarantine, prevention of seed adultera tion, pure foods, protection for game birds, the use of Insecticides and fungi cides. To these he will add the study ot marketing methods, of transportation. and of co-operation In production. Not long ago be sent out letters, to the women of 65.090 farms to. get a line on their needs. Theyt have responded volum Inously and he finds 'himself deluged with inquiries about hossehold matters, labor-saving machinery, domestic help, and many other matters. It is evident that the Department of Agriculture, under Mr. Houston, U likely to show us a development of paternalistic govern ment that would have made Thomas Jef ferson gasp It Is said of Secretary Houston that he has an Infinite capacity for holding his tongue. He has also smashed a few of the political precedents. Just to keep the President company. For Instance, he lowered the salary of an Inefficient em ploye and a Southern Senator came to protest. "I see." said the Secretary, "that I made a mistake In that case. I will rectify It at once." He called the clerk In and told him that he would re call the action ot lowering his salary and Instead he must consider himself dismissed! . A week later another case happened of the same sort. A woman whose salary waa reduced took her case to a Senator. He protested In the time-honored way, and the woman was at once called In and warned that If she ever again went to a Senator with a complaint she would be promptly dismissed. These are told by a correspondent of the Kansas City Star as but two incidents out of many. Looks I.Ike Business Man. Mr.Houston's description, as given In a recent Issue of Current Opinion, is that of a husky, broaa-shouldered, grave and self-contained man. He Is six feet two In height and weighs about 100 pounds. He looks more like a business man than like a farmer or an educator. But he has followed the plow, hoed corn and cotton, pulled fodder, split rails, kept a country store, taught a country school. allllll M ill Wm HI ill gf it Iniu To introduce our Fashion-Craft Clothes to the men and young men of Washington we have marked our en tire stock of Spring and Summer Suitings at the follow ing low prices for a limited period only: $28.00 Suits now $27.50 Suits now $25.00 Suits now $22.50 Suits now $20.00 Suits now $18.50 Suits now $15.00 Suits now Our stock embraces all die novelty weaves of the season in English and conjerra tire models, with or without patch pockets.
