MMTA FE NEW SANTA FE NEW MEXICO, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1913. NO. 226. VOL 50. I? i ULTIMATUM TO HUERTA IS REPORTED MUST ABDICATE AT ONCE AND NOT TURN REINS OVER TO ANY OF HIS FRIENDS, SAYS REPORT-OFFICIAL CIRCLES WILL NOT TALK ON SUBJECT. NO REPLY HAS BEEN RECEIVED FROM MEXICO Washington, D. C. Nov. 4. Presi dent Wilson let the Mexican situation few hours today while he simmer a tew nours loa' " went to Princeton, N. J., to vote. The tnftinn over this government's ulti matum to Huerta was not relieved by the president's absence, however, and just before Mr. Wilson left the White House he conferred with Secretary Bryan. All officials here were silent over the notice to Huerta to vacate the Provisional presidency of Mexico and seat no partisan. The understanding was that the tltude here Is to make no announce- ments just now and await the next siep. The greatest interest centered at Huerta's conferences with the Mexico City diplomatic corps. As soon as Charge D'Shaughnessy had delivered the latest note, Huerta called in the diplomats but no announcement was made of their conference. President Wilson planned to be in touch with the situation practically every hour he is away today and to return to Washington tonight. The president left here at 10 o'clock this morning, expecting to arrive in Prince ton at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon, cast bis ballot, leave Princeton at 4:20 o'clock and arrive back in the capital at 9:23 tonight. Administration officials directly connected with the Mexican negotia tions have adopted a policy of abso lute silence, considering inexpedient at this time to define the course of ac tion being pursued and declining to ccmment one way or the other on the reports from Mexico City regarding the presentation of a summarynote to i Huerta requiring his immediate resignation. fS'hat thls'ellmtnaUrm of Huerta is a sine quo non, is admitted ly 'the fundamental principle of the administration policy, but beyond this the successive steps taken or con templated are not disclosed. . An air of confidence In official cir cles is taken to indicate that the U. S is satisfied that practically all. the great powers have agreed to support the administration's policy at least to the extent of observing a strictly neutral attitude and allowing the U. S. tn test Its own plan for restoring peace in Mexico. In the absence of any official state ment, but on the basis of expressions h mnetpnt observers, it w """"" '--- . ' " ,rr." " a hp evert that Huerta nas peen lii - formed mat pracucauy au me iuci diplomatically represented in the Mex- lean capital are disposed to defer to the United States in the task of es tablishing constitutional government. Secretary Bryan flatly refused to discuss the situation when inquiries were made concerning the demand for the immediate retirement of Huerta. Senator Bacon, chairman of the for eign relations committee, after a con ference with Secretary Bryan said: "I consider the situation to be j nearer a conclusion. We are very liopeful that things will turn ont well." Secretary Daniels reiterated today that the three battleships of the sec ond division of the Atlantic fleet will remain in Mexican gulf waters until further orders, notwithstanding that four battleships of the third division are due at Vera Cruz and Tampico to morrow. Rear Admiral Fletcher, commanding the second division, will take com mand of the entire squadron. The New Hampshire and Nebraska will keep station at' Tampico, while the Louisiana, Michigan, Rhode Island, Virginia and New Jersey will await developments off Vera Cruz. In addi tion to these seven dreadnoughts, the gunboat Wheeling and the cruiser Ta koma are off era Cruz, while the gunboats Petrel and Nashville are in Dominican waters not far away. On the west coast, the armored cruisers California and Maryland are at Guaymas and Mazatlan, respective ly. The gunboat Annapolis also is at -Guaymas and the armored cruiser Pittsburg is enroute to that port. Later today Secretary Bryan issued a statement. He declined to discuss the use of the word "ultimatum", "note" or "advices" saying he had no more to say than the statement iself conveyed. It waa rr fnllows: ( "I have made It a rule not to dis- cuss newsDaoer renorta concerning in - .Avi.ntinnnl n. .... . ft... 1. .nti.pn nf n i in i . w.iui uuiiici s , VUI IUC UOluic ' . the dispatch from Mexico this morn ing suggests a departure from the rule at this time.

Discussion of the possibility that : President Wilson must again take the i situation to congress in a political ad ! dress was revived in administration 'circles again today.

On Board President Wilson's Train, Baltimore, Md., Nov. 3. No word of comment was available from President i Wilson today on the ultimatum de manding Huei'ta's resignation. The President gave no evidence of being worried over the situation and is calm ly awaiting Huerta's reply. The presi dent was accompanied on his trip to Princeton, N. J., by Miss Eleanor Wil son, his voueest daughter and the Misses Lucy and May Smith, of New j (.means, relatives, wno nave Deeu guests at the White House for several days. The president was to be in Princeton only two hours, planning to vote for James P. Fielder, the Dem- oeratic candidate for governor. He ex . , tn tnke .

HARVESTER TRUST HAS A FRIEND AT COURT JUDGE M'HUGH TELLS OF THE BENE FICIENT AND EDUCATIONAL IN FLUENCE OF THE GREAT CON CERN WAS A PRODUCT OF PER KINS BRAIN. INTERNATIONAL TRADE WAS PRIZE SOUGHT FOR St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 4. .ludge Wil liam D. McHugh, of Omaha, lighting the federal suit for dissolution of the International Harvester company, to day in the United States district court nlntured the Harvester concern as one i0f the greatest educational and bene- ficial forces ever created in this coun try. Counsel for the defense, then assigned to George W. Perkins, of New York, credit for this achieve ment and asserted that without Mr. Perkins' mind to direct the organiza tion and expansion of the business, the International Harvester company of today would be an Impossibility. "When Mr. McCormick went to Yew York in 1902 to enlist the sen-ices :ot the house of ,T. P. Morgan and com pany, to aid him in getting capital to extend the foreign trade of the Mc ink comuanv. he metiMr. Perkins, a man who was Invaluable for exactly the sort of thing Mr. McCormick de sired," he said.

COAL DUST WAS TucpMiccnc ! IIILUnUOLUI j EXPLOSION SO SAYS STATEMINE INSPECTOR R. H. BEDDOW REGARDING THE CATASTROPHE AT DAWSON RE CENTLY GAS HAO UTILE PART IN IT SAYS REPORT. BEDDOW MAKES FORMAL STATEMENT Dawson' N. M.. Nov. 4. t'oal (lust was the predominant force in the ex ulosion that wrecked mine No. 2 of the Stag Canon Fuel company here October 22. and resulted in the death of 2S3 men, according to a statement issued today by Itees H. Beddow, state mine inspector. It lias not been determined what ignited the dust. The statement declared that gas played very little, If any part in the explo sion: that a week before the explosion he hurt taken samples of air, which were analyzed by the United States bureau of mines at; Pittsburg, and showed only nineteen one hundredths of one per cent of nu-nthane. This the inspector points out. is very low for a mine of that character. He says that in the last ten days experts have been searching for gas, but have not found enough anywhere in the mine to show in a safety lamp test. Inspector Beddow's statement fol lows: "tias nlayed very Utile part in the explosion of the Dawson mine. The mine was the best ventilated mine in the state. There was 150,000 to 190,- 000 cubic feet of air traveling through the mine per niluute, This air was divided into many different splits, go ing into all parts of the mine, thus preventing any accumulation of gas. For the past ten days many of the best eas experts and milling men of the country have been examining the mine and hunting for gas, but not enough has been found anywhere to show up in a safety lamp test. A week previous to the explosion I took sam ples of the main return air and had It analyzed by the United States bureau of mines at Pittsburg. Pa. The analy sis of the air showi d only nineteen one hundredths of oiie per 'cent, of lnenthane, C. H. 4, which is very low for a mine of tin's character. "t'oal dust was the predominant force that propagated the explosion throughout all the mine, and is the most serious and difficult problem the coal operators have to contend with In operating their mines. What stirred up and ignited the coal dust has not been determined up to the present time. This may be revealed later on, when some of the rooms and pillars which are now inaccessible have been cleaned out, and in which further in vestigation will be made.

J., Nov. 4 The I-'ur-ness line freighter, Manchester Com merce, dragged her way into the har bor here today, her bow a mass of crumpled wreckage and her pumps racing madly to defeat the flood of water which poured in -.through the shattered hull. The steamer, which carries no wire less apparatus, crashed head on into a giant ice berg at 2 o'clock Sunday morning out 1(10 miles east of Belle Isle. The night was darkand the berg loomed out of the blackness so sud denly that there was no time to iharnru the course of the steamer which drove at full speed into it. The force of the impact was terrific. Tho uteel mow of the liner was crumpled like a piece of tin as far aft as the collision bulkhead. The decks were covered with great fragments of Ice and wreckage. Captain Couch hastily headed his ship for St. Johns. He succeeded in notifying his agents at Montreal by means of flag signals. The sea was swept by a heavy storm and the steamer had a hard struggle making port. The ship reach ed here in a sinking condition, repairs will reoiiire about two mouths. The steamer carried 6.000 tons of general cargo. Her lower hold, above which the water did not come, was filled with timber .while grain, flour and foodstuffs were on the deck above.
