I Denver, Colo., Nov. 20. After filling i
the night clerk ut an' uptown hotel j
with stories ot- bis hair raising ad-j
ventures in the wild and woolly west, J
a bandit early today wrote the follow-'
ing note and handed it to the clerk:
"ily Dear Boy The boss from our
gang wants that 1 should hold up this
house. Thanking you for that money,
. Yours, Dick."
When the clerk failed to take the
obvious hint in the note, the robber
resorted to less polite, if more conven
tional methods, and shoved a gun in
his victim's face. The clerk then
handed over about $10 in loose change
and the "bad man" departed. A few
minutes later, u man who gave his
name as Frank Miller and said he
came here from Colorado Springs, was
arrested. The police say he con
fessed the robbery.
Washington, D. C, Nov. 20. The I
eyes of official Washington were turn
ed today on the Mexican congress and j
Huerta's message on his recent as-1
sumption of dictatorial powers. The
possibility that the new congress
might act ou concessions discredited
In advance by the United States was
thought in many quarters to be a
pivot on which the next move by this
, government might turn. Those who
have been of the opinion that Huerta
would retire after his acts had been
ratified by the congress, still held con
fidence in their theory. So far as can
be learned, the American government
means to continue its plan of financial
blockade with diplomatic pressure
from without.
The closing feature of Huerta's
message, in which, after proposing the
sanction of congress, he added that if
this was withheld and authority en
trusted to another he and his min
isters were agreed in advance to ac
cept such a result, waB regarded with
some significance as if indicating that
Huerta himself was at last recogniz
ing the possibilities of his own elimi
nation. I

t o new move in prospect for the im
mediate future. It was also said that

been one of the reasons why General
Huerta so .obstinately opposed the
pressure brought to bear on him by
the United States and other nations
to withdraw and efface himself. The
provisional president is said by those
believed to be in a position to know,
to have been persuaded that he must
resign and to have named Manuel
Garza AJdage, .farmer minister of ttee
interior as the man he desired to
succeed him, when the insistence of
John Lind, the personal representa
tive of President Wilson, on the aboli
tion of the new congress, caused him
tr change his attitude and reject the
idea of resigning.
Up to the moment of the last rep
resentation made to him by John
Lind, the friends of the provisional
piesident, say he frequently eulogized
Senor Aldage as one of the most )
worthy to be head of the Mexican gov
ernment, and he appeared to look
with some degree of equanimity on
the idea of turning over the presi
dency to him.
The marked manner in which Provi
sional President Huerta displayed his
cordiality toward Nelson O'Shaugh
nessy, the American charge d'affaires,
and the way in which he applauded
the playing of the "Star Spangled
Banner" at yesterday's reception in

had been taken. The first official in
terpretation of the parleys at No

and the constitutionalists also came
from the white house. The president
said Hale had gone to Nogales mere
ly to Inform himself about the pur
poses of the constitutionalists and
their character. Mr. Wilson made it
plain there was nothing so formal as
negotiations, no plan of action was
debated, no names of provisional suc

taken up, but that the Washington
government simply wanted to .have,
through Mr, Hale, some means ot
knowing something about the con
