These are the officers for the en.su-

State Reunion association at the meet- j
iris heW in the Elk lodge rooms after j
the parade. Tucson was chosen for the
scene of the next re-union. Other busi
ness transacted at the meeting was of
a secret nature.
Globe carried off most of the honors
in the competition among the various
visiting lodges. The Elks from the j
mining town had the largest delegation j
in tho parade among the visiting hosts. ;
This superiority of numbers gave the I
Globe delegation one prize. Then they
captured more honors by proving that j
their delegation represented the great- (
e,M railroad mileage of any which road j
into rhoenix.
The Tucson lodge was judged as be- i
ing the best in appearance of any J
which had a representation in the ;
parade. 'r',53 i
Much rivalry arose between Phoeni- j
cians who decorated their automobiles j
nd formed one of the mo.t striking I
leritures of the procession. After much
deliberation, the following were de- j
dared winners in the contest for the !
be.st decorated automobiles. ;

Representative Murdock, pro

disapproves entirely of re
turning the salute to the
Huerta forces.
"If we return a salute to
those bandits," says he, "we
might as well fire a few guns

WASHINGTON', April 17. The pres
ident has flatly rejected Huerta's sug
gestions for a "simultaneous salute" to

formed Huerta that the United States
would insist on a literal compliance

No reply to the last American note
transmitted through O'Shaughnessy j
has been received up to tonight and no :
orders to the American war fleets tn i

issued. The administration officials j
considered, however, that while the
main point ut i.-stie the exchange of 1
salutes has been settled, Htierta's
'haggling over details" as one official
expressed it, is not likely to prevent
an adjustment of the controversy. They
oeiieve.l the crisis over, but on the
other hand, in view of the kaleido
scopic change of the last few d.ivs, it
is said they will not be surprised if
the hitch over details became serious
The government has taken the posi
tion that when the salute of 21 guns
is fired to the Stars and Stripes, a sa
lute in acknowledgement will be fired
to the flag of the Mexican people, and
not to the Huerta administration or to
any government or individual. There
is much discussion in official circles,
not only about the propriety of return
ing Htierta's salute in view of the pe
culiar diplomatic relations between
Mexico City and Washington, but be
cause of the navy regulation No. 114
which reads:
"No salute shall be fired in honor of
any nation, or any official of any na
tion not formally recognized by the
government of the United States."
In explanation of this point, Bear
Admiral Fiske. after a conference with
Secretary Daniels, issued the following
"This regulation is interpreted as
a prohibition against firing a salute
in honor of any government which
has recently come into being, or in
honorof an official of such a gov
ernment, and if it has not been
formally recognized by our govern
ment. Any such salute shall be con
sidered as a recognition of that gov
ernment. In order to escape the
consequence of such an apparent re
cognition it would become necessary
for our government to formally dis
avow it. In 1S93 Bear Admiral Stan
ton made the mistake of saluting the
flag of Rear Admiral Mello, who was
then in revolt against tho Brazilian
government, xne Brazilian govern
ment complained, which promptly re
sulted in the disavowal of the salute
and the relief of Stanton from com
mand.. "Paragraph 1194 is not interpreted
as forbidding the firing of a salute
in honor of any nation of which the
government has merely passed from
the hands of certain individuals to
those of other individuals, even
though our government may not have
recognized the new individuals. For
instance, our ships in entering Mexi
can ports have saluted ports, and the
salute has been returned. This is
considered merely as in honor of the
sovereignty of the republic of Mexico,
and not in honor of any individuals
who may have gotten control of the
machinery of that government. Sa
lutes are national salutes and not
It was pointed out that the colors
of Admiral Mello were not the Bra
zilian flag, but the flag of the re
bellious forces.
Secretary Daniels in discussing the
return of the salute, said he had con

militia officers of their side, arms on

fense of the action, the captain said,
the Agua 1'ricta military authorities
were not notified in advance of the
visit of the governors and when he saw
fourteen automobiles filled with gov
ernors, citizens and officers carrying
swords, lie thought it might be the pos

where salutes had been given they
must be returned. Mr. Daniels spoke
of the fact that Mexican gunboats,
even although in the possession of the
unrecognized Huerta government, sa
luted when they passed American
warships. He referred to the recent
visit to New Orleans of the. Mexican
gunboat which had not been saluted
by the shore batteries. The war de
partment inquired, of the navy de
partment at that time about the pre
cedents, jiuid the army officers in
charge at New OrledYis were ad
vised to return the salute.
"It is not a salute to a govern
ment or to an administration," said
Daniels, "but to the flag of a people."

Htierta's request for a simultaneous
salute created situation of uncer

How It Was Arranged
It was after the suggestion had
been made last January by a promi
nent railroad man of this state, that
the board of trade leaped into tho
fray. At a meeting of the directors
early in February, George A. Olney
of Phoenix was named as a commit
tee of ono to test out the attitude of
ine nig mining men. ine lecepuun
ne iiiei w K mo.si 1 1 .1 1 1 ei mu
Every- 1
body he applied to was perfectly will
ing to do anything to get the con
gress to meet here next fall. The
result was that a day or two ago a
special message was received by Mr.
Olney, stating that J. C. Greenway.
L. S. Cales, James Douglas, C. E.
Mills, Normaii C'armichael and A.
! Gottsberger would see that the neces-
: dispostil of the congress in plenty of
I time to insure tho expenses of tho
preliminary campaign. The big cop-
per mining companies of the state aro
supposed to be backing these six men,
(who are acting practically- as a c6m

! Given the five thousand, all that'
j remains for Phoenix to do is to guar
