William O. Jenkins. Ameri* can Consular Agent, was still a prisoner In a Mexican penitentiary, according to all information at offi cial quarters. The Cabinet came to no decision on Mexico. Another meeting is scheduled today. First Chief Carranza is trying to build up ills own political strength in Mexico by using the Jenkins* case to tnflame the people against the United States, ti cording to Senator Borah, of Jdano. Seeks to Cemsolldate. "I have not been able to follow the Mexican situation very closely because of the treaty.' but it ap pears to me that Carranza is try ing to strengthen his own position in Mexico by a deliberate cam paign against foreigners." he said. "He is apparently trying to unite his own factions by his attitude against the United States." Meantime, it developed that Jen kins. who wan captured by bandits and held for $150,000 ransom, then arrested by the authorities of the ?Ute of Puebla on a charge of con spiracy. is in reality illegally held. The Mexican contention has been that Jenkins' caxe was a matter to N disposed of by tie toes I authori ties at Piiebla. But the new^leiri ycan constitution has this to say specifically on the matter of diplo matic and consular authorities: May Chanjce Attitude. "The federal tribunal shall have jurisdiction over all cases concern ing diplomatic agents and consular officers." This section of the Mexican law may put the matter In a new light. The attitude has been taken at the Mexican Embassy here that the federal government of Mexico was powerless to iuterfere in a case un der the jurisdiction of the state au thorities at Puebla Many Arrests Made in Crime Wave in Chicago Chicago.

There is no hope for any consider able relief from the burden of war taxes for another year at lea*t, in the opinion of Republican leaders in the House. Unless the strictest economy is practiced, they assert, it may be two years before any material reductions can be made. Present indications are that the deficit in the Treasury at the end of the current fiscal year. June 30. will range from I2.SOO.OOO.OOO to $3. 500.000.000. and the cost of operating the government for the next fiscal year will approach |4.000.006.000 ? four times the yearly expenditures before the war. Mast "Cat Heart** of t;?tlmate>. In view of this condition accord ing to Representative James R. Mann, of Illinois, former Republican leader. Congress will have to "cut the heart out" of all the estimates of the executive departments to keep the expenditures for the fiscal year of 1921 within the revenues. Mr. Mann will fight for rigid adherence to this policy from the moment the new session begins next Monday. To relieve the burden as much as possible, however, the Republican leaders arc planning to revise the internal revenue law. The purpose of the revision will be to more equi tably distribute the taxos and do away with as many of the consump tion taxes as can safely be dis carded. In other words, it Is proposed to lighten the burden on those less able to carry it and increase the levies on those more able to bear a greater share of the cost of operating the government. Work on the revised revenue act is scheduled to begin shortly after Congress is reconvened. HOLD TWftfOR WOMAN'S DEATH Analysis of Beverage Used At Party Sought by Police. Baltimore, Md.. Nov. Z>.~The sudden death here on Saturday of Miss Lucille Sharp, of Winston-Salem. X. C., and the mysterious illness of her friend. Mrs. Katherine Bristol, of Philadelphia, resulted today in the ar rest of two men. John Keily. formerly of Atlanta, and All Osman. a Tuik. They are technically charged with ad ministering poison to the women and are held without bail. Despite the sensational action of the police, there is no evidence of malicious action on the part of the men. Further action of the authori ties depends upon the outcome of the analysis of a mysterious beverage or which the entire four had partaken in Kelly's luxurious apartments in Eutaw Place. The probability is that the beverage will show traces of wood alcohol, as it* was purchased as brandy. Both men under arrest arc said to be wealthy. Kelly, according to the police, has made considerable money through the manufacture of a cereal food, and Osman. the Turk, is said to have grown riqh in the shoe business. Keily and Miss Sharp came to Bal timore from Atlanta six months ago and took an apartment at the Eutaw Place apartments, where they lived hs man and wife, the police say. Last Friday night Miss Sharp was sud denly taken ill and was sent to the Union Protestant Infirmary, after ph> sicians had been called in. Fifteen minutes after her arrival at the hospital she died. The coroner returned a verdict of death from Bright's disease and permission was given her mother to haVe the body sent to Winston-Salem. >E Siberian Cabinet Resigns. Vladivostock. via London.

The Cabinet was in a state of deadlock last night as to what step the government should take next in the coal situation which is rapidly becoming acute. The termination of the nego tiations between the operators and the miners, now at an im passe, was clearly in the hands of the President's advisers when they began their session yester day. Six-Hoar Se*?l?n. It was expected that the Cabinet would reconcile the discrepancy be tween the maximum wage increase offered by the operators and the minimum increase on which the min ers are making their last stand.
