CHAOS TO YIELD TO ORDER.
Washington Thinks Conditions Will Improve Shortly. Washington, Deo. 4.-Administra tion officials here are viewing with satisfaction r-vldences of the growing., sense of responsibility on the part of the rebel leaders in Northern Mexico for the protection of life t td prop erty within the territory of their pos sessions. Tito State Department's request for the release of Americans held for ransom or arrested on sus picion are now receiving prompt at tention at the hands of the Constitu tionalist generals, and it is apparent that these officers in turn are gradu ally exerting more power and Impos ing greater restraints over their sub ordinates. Some semblance of civil authority also is beginning to appear iii tho Northern States, and is meeting with recognition at the hands of the mili tary leaders. Altogether officials here Bee indications that a regularly organized civil government is about to he evolved from the chaotic con ditions- that have prevailed in thai section of Mexico for the past nine months. lt is believed that thc Constitu tionalists themselves are divided on the question of seeking formal recog nition by the United States. A con siderable portion of them are said to incline to the view ascribed to (?en. Villa, that such recognition of their government in its present condition might encourage a movement for the separation Of the Northern Stales from the remainder of the country. The State Department has so far received no confirmation from official sources of tho report that the great oil companies In the State of Vera Cruz, under threats from the insur gents, have cancelled their contract obligations to supply the Mexican government with the crude oil nec essary to operate the locomotives on the railways. Reports to the depart ment Indicate thal there is enough oil already above ground to moot all of thc needs of the railroads for at least three months, and it is said there is no question as to the power or the disposition of the Huerta gov ernment to take forcible possession Of this fuel. Fighting Soon to Cease, Juarez, Mexico, Dec. 4.-While looting by isolated hands or confisca tion of property by the rebels may continue, the days of lighting in Northern Mexico are numbered, so far as the present revolution is con cerned, according to opinions ex pressed by rebel leaders. What most immediately concerns the Constitutionalist party now is the elaboration of its civil government. This embraces a more systematical custom system. The rebels hold all the important border towns, except Nuevo Laredo and Piedras Negras, oonosito Ea?le Tass.

Within a short time, the leaders say, a government will be in opera- j tion in the northern half of the coun try, which will he entirely independ ent of that in Mexico City. There is more catarrh in this sec tion of tile country than all other dis eases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incura ble. For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease and pre scribed local remedies, and by con stantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and, therefore, requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, ls the only constitutional cure on the market. It ls taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on the blood and mu cous surfaces of the system. They offer one hundred dollars for any case lt fails to cure. Send for circu lars and testimonials. Address F. J.

Plymouth, Eng., Dec. 4.-Contrary to expectation there was no disturb ance to-day when Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst', the militant suffrage leader, was arrested on hoard a liner when she arrived from New York. She was transferred to a tug which had been chartered by the police. Mrs. Pankhurst was taken by the police to the government dock, where all but officials were excluded. The militants in the meanwhile paraded at Plymouth. A heavy sea helped the police elude a posse of suffragists who plan ned to rescue Mrs. Pankhurst. The wa vos were loo much for the small launch in which the militants tried to head off the police boat. Suffra gists are on guard at all prisons in London where it is thought Vtrs. Pankhurst might be taken. in Jail ut Exeter. Exeter, Dec. 4.-Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst, the militant suffrage leader arrested on shipboard, was brought here and jailed. Dig Job to Pour Ont Liquor, Asheville, N. C., Dec. 3.- Members of the sheriff's department were kept busy to-day pouring whiskey into a hath tub In tho county jail, from whieh lt flowed into the sewer. That l?ortlon of Hie intoxicants seized dur ing the recent Investigation which ls suitable for hospital uses has been turned over to tlie Mission Hospital. Other Intoxicants, unfit for use as medicine, are being destroyed. In view of tho fact that a large part of tho whiskey comes In half pint bottles, the sheriff's deputies say that it will he several days before they can finish the task of elenring tho jail "bar-room." The requests of prisoners to aid in the destruction of the whiskey have been refused. THE ENGROSSING DEPARTMENT. Em h Judicial District in the State is Represented in Mic List. Columbia, Dec. 5.-Each judicial district in the State is represented in the list of appointments to the en grossing department announced yes terday by Attorney General Tbos. H. Peeples. In some districts more than one appointment was given nec essarily, but no district was neg lected. Mr. Peeples in his letter to the ap pointees reminds them of their duty to the State. He also calls their at tention to the fact that the appoint ments are during the pleasure of the attorney general. J, C.
