HARRISBURG, PA., SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 2, 1914. i HOW HUERTASTRENGTHENS ' % -J Scene at Mexico City during the allotment of tine farm lands by General Huerta to all those who agree to serve a certain length of time in'the Fed eral army. It is with these reinforcements that Huerta hopes to repel the American advance on Mexico City. WORKMEN FINO POT OF "MET BURIED IN CHIMNEY CORNER Razing of Old Dwellings For C. V. Subways Develops Queer Find The discovery of a bis potful of counterfeit money buried In the chim ney of a house at 223 Mulberry street led the police to-day to believe that at one time the notorious Peter Stello, alias "Red Kelley," convicted counter- feiter, made the place his headquar ters. The dark and mysterious doings of "Red" are known to have included this section. The find was made by workmen tearing down the row of which the house forms one to make way for double tracking the railroad. "Red Kelley," who is now doing two years in the Eastern pen, following his conviction as a counterfeiter in Federal court at Scranton March 8, is known to have passed spurious half dollars in a little store a few doors be low in the same row. The houses are now pretty well de molished and probably the finds of money are over. The biggest find of all also resulted from the purchase of the row by the railroad, which made necessary the vacating of a house at Court and Mulberry occupied by Frank Monath. About six weeks ago Monath's mother died. Then Mo nath sold the house and prepared to disrobe it of furnishings. It was while so engaged that he came unexpectedly upon a wad of bills under the carpet in one corner. Further search dis closed other sums, and the hunt for the wealth that Mrs. Monath had hid den from time to time kept up until he had secured $3,000, which repre sented the savings of a lifetime. The money was secreted in all sorts of queer places. A very careful search of the premises' was made before Mo nath quit it, and it is believed that all the money was recovered.

PUNS TO COMPLETE EXTENSION BY END OF SUMMER Expenditure of $8,500,000 For Improvements Will Include Changes at Steelton It is expected that the extensive | improvements and betterments at the j Pennsylvania Steel Works which were started last year will be completed be fore the end of the summer. The comprehensive program adopted last May for the improvement of the com pany's plants involved an expenditure of $8,500,000. The part affecting the Steelton works, according to the com pany's annual repor* just issued, pro vides for the abandonment of the old jer and more uneconomical open hearth j furnaces and the addition of the new ier and more etficient open hearth plant of one stationary and ♦wo tilting , open hearth furnaces and the con j struction of a Bessemer duplexing plant as an integral part of the open hearth plant. This brings under orfe I roof the entire steel-making capacity of the Steelton works and will, when completed, very considerably cheapen . the cost of making steel. The carry ing out of this plan involved moving I the blacksmith and other chops and office building to new locations. It also provided for extensive improve [ nients tc the merchant rolling mills, j considerable additions to the forge de jpartment, the construction of a coal washing plant in connection with the | eoko ovens and other minor improve -1 ments. Up to the end of the last year : the expenditures on account of these I improvements were .1,790,647.15. J During the present year the program lof improvements at Steelton covers the remodeling and consolidation of the present blooming, slabbing anfl rail mills whereby the plant will be enabled to roll a larger variety of structural shapes and girder rails. There will also be important improve ments to the existing blast furnace plant. By the end of the present year the improvements will be largely com- j pleted.

PRESIDENT URGES CHHIUOO strikers ' TO SURRENDER ARMS ' Proclamation Issued Through Sec retary Garrison to Major Holbrook By Associated Press Washington, May 2. —Under auth ority of the President, Secretary of War Garrison to-day issued a procla mation calling upon the people in the 11 district of Colorado to surrender all arms and ammunition to the United : States Army officers now in charge at the various troubled localities. I Secretary Garrison's -proclamation | addressed to Major Holbrook at Trin ,idad is in the most sweeping terms and demands the disarming of not only strikers but the mine guards. The proclamation is: ■ "TV hereas, under existing circum stances the possession Qf arms and ammunition by persons not in the mil itary service of the United States tends to provoke disorder and to exditc dom estic violence and hinders the restor ation of normal conditions of peace and good order, I do, by the authority of the President of the United States, call upon and direct all persons in the I military services of the United States who have arms or ammunition in their possession or under their control to deliver them forthwith to the officer at the place herein designated. Re ceipts will be issued for all arms and ammunition so delivered. The above applies to individuals, firms, asso-; ciations and corporations." Post Proclamation Tho officer in command at each place where troops are stationed is charged to post the proclamation. Secretary Garrison's determination to issue the proclamation for the sur render of arms, was reached after de liberation upon reports from Major Holbrook of Trinidad. It was pointed out that in directing the surrender of arms to the army commanders at the respective stations the government issues all responsibility for the pro tection of property which Individuals, associations, firms and corporations hitherto have been guarding on their own account. Emphasis was laid upon the fact that tho sweeping terms of the proclamation calling all "no' in I military service of the United States" to surrender their arms applies only to localities where tho United States troops are present. As the trouble districts are widely j scattered throughout Colorado no j jarmy officer will be in supreme com-j mand of the military forces sent in j the state. Secretary Garrison will issue his order directly to the officers! in command of the forces in the var- j 'ious localities.
