Mexican constitutionalist representa tives here in communication with Sec retary Bryan are inquiring as to the trend of events. From well informed sources it is said the constitutionalists will not under any circumstances unite with Huerta, but will maintain their status quo in the territory they now control if the United States take no offensive action against them. The ambassador and ministers, too, who are eager to learn the purpose of the Amer ican government, were supplied with information by the state department. A summary of the developments was I cabled to all American 'legations and j embassies for the information of for- cign governnments. In the meantime the Atlantic fleet continues steaming southward to the Mexican potts. No orders were issued to the army. The determination to force a defin ite reply from Huerta, ending the toler ance toward his dilatory tactics, is emphesized strongly in the day's de velopments. It was a day of action in official circles, reminiscent of many of the scenes of 1S9S, for at no time since has the president threatened to ask congress to use the army and navy forces to enforce the foreign policy. The knowledge that the Mexican sit uation had reached the turning point, I spread throughout the national capital, j For two hours, while the clerks de- j ciphered long messages from O'Shaugh- j nessy, half a hundred correspondents i waited in the corridors of the state de partment for an Inkling of its contents. Secretary Bryan sent for Secretary Tumultv. The president ha1 gone to play golf, expecting no development ! until noon. Bryan and Tumulty con ferred briefly, then hurried to a wait ing automobile and were soon speeding toward the Virginia hills, where the president was playing. In -the meantime the AVhite House had telephoned to the golf club, and secret sen-ice men ran out to the ninth hole and communicated the message. The president abandoned the, links and got into his big motor car. On the way toward Washington he met Bjryan and Tumulty. The party sped back to the White House. Officials at the state d.partment meanwhile described Huerta's message as "inconclusive." Though the text of Huerta's answer was not made public, other officials described the dictator's attitude as "very obstinate" and in sisting on the simultaneous salute. Naval officers said there was no such thing as a "simultaneous salute." Apol ogies are given in a salute of 21 guns fired at intervals of ten seconds, after the completion of which the party of fended returns the salute. That Huerta had merely "suggested" and "inquired" also was reveuled and officials found they had interpreted his previous "inquiries" under suggestions and promises. When the president reached the White House, Postmaster General Bur leson was waiting. Acting Chairman Shively of the senate foreign relations committee arrived a few minutes later. They studied Huerta's message only a few minutes and were unanimously agreed on a reply which was des patched to Charge O'Slnughnessy. It was couched in strong language, and it's tenor was indicated by the public statement issued from the White House saying that unless Huerta had "yieded" the president would lay the situation before congress. Official business was interrupted at the White House, callers being turned away with the statement that "grave business" was being considered. - It was two o'clock before the ultima tum to Huerta had boon put into ci pher and dispatched from Washington. Officials estimated, it would be deliv ered in Mexico City early tonight. Al lowing time for its consideration by Huerta, and his advisers, It was not believed, any answer would be ready before late at night at the earliest, and could not reach hen- until some time tomorrow. In tile me.anw hile the aides at the navy department went into secret conference, completing plans lor the movement of warships and marines. Rear Admiral Victor lilue, acting as secretary navy, forwarded to Hear Admiral Badger on the flagship Arkansas at head of the fleet speed ing to Mexico, the text of President Wilson's telegram giving Huerta un til six o'clock Sunday evening. It was also forwarded to I tear Admiral Fletcher at Vera Cruz, who will com municate it to Rear Admiral Mayo at Tampico. Rear Admiral Howard, commander of the squadron in the Pacific and West Mexican waters will a!so be notified. Tlie fourth murine regiment on the Pacific coast was ordered southward. The armored cruiser South Dakota with 20 marines was dispatched from Bremerton to Mare Island, where the remaining 6(io marines will be divided with the collier, Jupiter. Then the two crafts will steam to San Diego to await further orders. The two pow erful new dreadnaughts, Texas and New York, are at New York and al though not under orders, are ready to start to Mexico on twelve hours notice. The Virginia, Georgia, Ne braska and Rhode Island, now at Boston, would be ready by the end of the month. , The transport Hancock already has arrived at Tampico with SOU marines, the cruisers lies Moines and San Francisco, the gunboat Dolphin, the s;out cruiser Chester, the transport Buffalo and the Cyclops are already there. At Vera Cruz, Roar Admiral Fletch er has the battleships Florida and I'tah, the transport Prairie, with a largo complement of marines. The battleships under Rear Admiral Bad ger are reported off Key West and tire to arrive Tuesday. On orders, from Washington they could reach Tampico on Monday. It was general ly agreed, however, that the force tow at Tampico and Vera Cruz is sufficient to carry out any plan of taction President Wilson may direct. player lies in his own hands. 1 Imve heard the luck and skill per centage of auction variously placed, from evenly per cent skill to eighty per cent luck to fifty per cent for each. I'erson'illy, I should place it at forty for skill and sixty for luck. Whatever it is. the luck percentage is admitted to be liiscouragingly high. Any move ment which would lower it would be a boon to auction; it would dignify the game, raise it to the chess level, and wipe out its only discouraging feature. "Pianola" hands I hands that play themselves) are not inspiring. With a long run of such hands on your own side your victory pises its savour your winnings are a sift, and not an achievement: with a long run of such hands against you there is small pleas ure in the game all your efforts go for nothing, and the only thing you can do is to jut t up as gooj a fight as pos sible against the steamroller in the ad versaries' hands. In spite of all your pluck, you are flatened to a. pancake. But when the game is neck-and-neck, when the play of every card is vital, then you get Auction in ils perfect form.

The man with all the high cards could take the stakes whether he played well or poorly: he could defeat, superior j. layers because he held the good cards against them. This was hard on the superior players: also it was the flat test kind of victory for the victor. No good sportsman wants to win on cards alone. Of course, expert players could cake more on good hands and lose less on bad ones than inferior players. But not ven experts could beat luck. Chess is a perfect game because it is 100 per cent skill and no per cent luck It depends on no throw of dice nor fall of cards;, of fate of the chess John Spratt will cat no fat.

The attendance at the opening game was one of the largest in the game's history and if you don't believe it just look at the photograph above. It shows a section of the fans in the bleachers, cheering a clever play by Jimmy Smith at third. At least they had been cheering, but the ex citement of having a paclure taken somewhat distracted them. So the little girls stopped cheering and gig gled a. little instead. They have no ladies' days in the National league, but the officials of the Sandlot league are more gallant. Every day is ladies' day here. This Is partly because the cheers of the fair admirers are necessary for the best efforts of the; performers ami then most of the boys over five years old prefer to take part in the game than be mere idle, spectators. Sev eral of the young men in the pic ture above are sitting on the bench eagerly awaiting a chance to bring someone in with a hit in a pinch or to go in and finish the game in the box if the opposition touch up the pitcher too easily. And most any day one of them might come into possession of a new bat and glove and find himself appointed manager of the Sandlot Midgets. Baseball ability goes a long way in the Sand lot league, but a new ball or catch er's mask will discount a great many of the owners'! strikeouts and errors. j. o HEARD ON THE WHARF ( M V"f if 4i .V.iilMIL..: 4 itiji. fv r & Scene From "Anthony and Cleopatra" at the Lamara Theater April 20-21 So you're going over on the steam Aren't yell afraid you'll be sea- er. sick?"
