Madero Brothers Are
Given Refuge
Washington, November 21.—Rear
Admiral Fletchet, com man ding the
American fleet on the east coast of
IHexloo, late today cabled the navy de
partment a message he had received
from General Aguilar, the constitu
tionalists leader who has occupied the
vicinity of Tuxpam, giving assurance*
that American and other extensive oil
Interest* in tliHt territory would he
protected.
Admiral Fletcher Ls under orders to take
Auch steps as may be necessary to pro
tect foreign lives and property, reports
from Tuxpam having indicated that the
constitutionalists were threatening to de
■trov the tanks of British oil interests.
This led to talk of the possibility of land
ing marines or bluejackets from the
American battleships and developments
in the situation have been awaited with
intense interest.
No Harm Threatened
General Aguilar's message, sent in reply
to Admiral Fletcher’s demand that no
harm should come to foreigners or their
property, said:
1 ain governing on a constitutional
basis, my attitude being to guarantee the
interests of all foreign and domestic oil
corporations existing in the territory I oc
cupy, fulfilling in this manner the de
mands of civilization and not being goV
eineri by caprice or vengeance.”
Officials here think this means that
there will be no troublesome complica
tions as a result of Aguilar’s occupation
of the oil field territory. Destruction of
the tanks would have endangered lives
of many Americans and other foreigners.
Two British armored cruisers have been
ordered to the scene, but in the meantime
the United States had been asked to guard
British interests.
Frequent conferences today between
Her ret ary Bryan, Counsellor John B- t
Moore and A<rlThg SetWlnA* tffmwe
velt and two. visits by thq Secretary of
State to the White House, accompanied
by Mr. Roosevelt, were the outward
marks of the deep interest felt in of
UL-U-L^ii'yles in the Mexican situation.
* Maderos Given Refuge
It developed that the welfare of the
Madero brothers and their relatives, who
had sought asylum in the American con
sulate at Vera Cruz, was the feature of
these conferences. There was a strong
desire on the part of the administration to
learn whether any resistance had been
offered by the local Mexican authorities
to the removal of the refugees aboard a
battleship, and it was quite apparent that
a sense of relief was experienced when it
was learned that it had not been neces
sary to employ force.
Late in the day the department re
ceived a cablegram from Admiral Fletch
er announcing that “Daniel Madero and
five companions were received this morn
ing on board the Louisiana as refugees.”
It was said at the navy department
that no special Instructions had been
given in regard to the treatment of the
refugees, though Admiral Fletcher had
been told to confer with John Lind, who
last evening had been authorized by Pres
ident Wilson himself to extend protec
tion to the Maderos.
Carranza's Position
Nogales, Arlz., November 21.—It was
learned today from authoritative sources
that one of the principal reasons why the
conferences here between William Bayard
Hale, President. Wilson's personal repre
sentative, and General Carranza, consti
tutionalist leader, broke up, was the fail
ure of Carranza to give the American
government assurances that accepted rules
of civilized warfare would he observed
by insurrectionists If they were allowed
to import firearms and ammunition sup
plies.
Carranza, it was understood, was not In
g position to give these assurances, be
cause of inability to control the generals
tn the field.
The first indication that the constitu
tionalists could not meet this demand
came, It was said, when Carranza ab
sented himself from the conference, giving
Illness as an excuse. After his second
failure to keep the appointment, Hule re
fused to confer with subordinates.
Although Hale declined to accept repeat
ed Invitations from Carranza's subordi
nates to discus sthe situation Informally
after the general's departure, he was said
to have assured the ministers before he
left for Tucson that lie would meet Car
ranza personally anywliere If the con
stitutionalist leader so requested.
It Is said that Carranza came to the

DEFIANT ATTITUDE OF

Would Have Defied Wash

Last
Mexico City, November 21.—The hulk
of the evidence nt hand continues t*>
indicate that Vletoriono Huerta la un
alterably determined not to accede to

ernment for lila elimination aa Prca
lilent of Mexico, lint there la aome

The high handed parliamentary prac
tice in the Chamber of Deputies this aft
ernoon gave rise to considerable specula
tion. The. roll of members was called
and it was quite evident that the number
necessary for a (jtiorum was present, but
Col. Victor Corral, presiding in the ab
sence of Eduardo Tamariz. the speaker,
who was said to be ill, looked the depu
ties straight in the eye and declared there
was no quorum. Not a deputy protested
and the chamber stood adjourned until \
tomorrow.
It was suggested that this action might
be part of a plan to bring about the
death of Congress and thus split hairs
with the Washington government, which,
through John Lind, President Wilson’s
personal Vepresentatlve, had insisted that
this new legislative body should not come
into existence.
Huerta Playing for Time
Under the law. should there he no
quorum three times in succession, the
• House, would be automatically dissolved.
One prominent Mexican, speculating upon
the motive for today’s adjournment, sug
gested that it was merely a time saving
device, adding “time for Huerta today
is fine spun gold.”
It became known today that Markup 1
"ftur.vi iuran »e. prior U> hjs expulsion
from tne cabinet, submitted for the con
[ sideratlon of the United States a propo
sition signed by President Huerta that
Congress should meet merely for the
transaction of three or four measures,
namely: Ratification of the decree ol’
October 11 dissolving Congress; declar
ing the elections of President and vice
president null and calling for new elec
tions, and, because there might arise the
question as to the legality of the new
Chamber and Senate, calling an election
for deputies and senators as well. It
was understood that after these measures
had been acted upon the new Congress
would adjourn and the nation again
would wait the results of elections.
For this reason it is not believed that
the no quorum idea will he carried out
indefinitely and that it was used today
merely as a matter of sparring for time.
Government officials are authority for
the statement that there has been In
augurated between Nelson O’Shaughncssy.
the American charge d’affaires, and Mex
ico certain negotiations. Confirmation of
this is not obtainable at the embassy and
in government circles all details are re
fused.
England’s Move Explained
That a British cruiser squardon was
ordered from Barbadoes to Vera Cruz
on representations made by Sir Lionel
harden became known here today. It
also was learned that counter order was
made as the result of an energetic com
munication from Secretary of State Bryan
to the British ambassador at Washington
Sir Lionel Carden is said to have rep
resented to his government that condi
tions were becoming so bad that fresh
uprisings would be no surprise and hi
event that they occurred he doubted the
ability of the American marines at Vera
Cruz, even if so disposed, to afford proper
protection. He then suggested sending
a squadron, it is said.
Secretary Bryan, according to cable
grams reaching here, learned the news
from press representatives, and gave the
British ambassador to understand that
the United States would regard the pres
ence of a British squadron in Mexican
waters undesirable and as a result thq
order was changed to provide for one
cruiser to proceed to Tampico or some
other gulf port.
Power Disintegrating
Mexico City, November 21.—Convening
of the Mexican Congress and Huerta’s
reading of his message* are regarded ny
officials here as merely carrying the
situation on one step further and
not an event which forecast any immedi
ate move by the United States.
The view hero Is that each day adds

INVENTION GETS MAN OUT OF
JAIL AND PUTS HIM IN AGAIN
Arizona Convict Invents Device to Coax Electricity From Air.
Given Parole to Have Invention Patented, But Fails
to Live Up to Terms of Agreement

j New Orleans. November 21.—A de
vice which he Invented while serving
a term for forgery in the Arizona pen
itentiary and which won for him a
JWjort parole from that Institution, ac
^irding to a story in a current tech
nical magazine, has been indirectly re
sponsible for landing Roy J. Meyers
In Jail here. Meyers is held in de
fault of bail of $6500 on three charges
of obtaining money under false pre
tenses growing out of supposed deals
to put his device? on the market. He
got $3500 from Martin Von Heuvel of
Mobile.
According to the magazine article
Mey*r* invented what he called a
'•‘power absorber” while in the Arizona
prison, with this device static elec
tricity, it is said, can be coated from
the air and used for power.
During one of her visits to the Ari
zona prison Miss Kate Bernard, state
commisisoner of charities and correc
tions of Oklahoma, became interested
in Meyers' invention. |s|ie appeared be
fore Governor Hunt and spoke before
the Arizona legislature in her effort
to have Meyers paroled 30 days so ho
could go to Washington to have his de
vice patented. Aev^rding to the mag
azine story, which Meyers does not de
ny, this parole was granted and he
went to Washington on funds Miss
Bernard solicited from members of the
legislature. He returned without a
guard and served the eight months re
maining of his sentence.

“A HINT TO THE WISE IS SUFFICIENT”
COTTON EXCHANGE
COMMITTEE MAKES
STANDARD REPORT
Recommends That Exchange
Adopt Types Promulgated
by the Agricultural De
partment in 1909
New York, November 21.—The special
committee appointed by the board of
managers of the New York cotton ex
change on October 2, to consider the
question of changing the existing type
standards, with the suggestion of making
such change in the contract as the com
mittee might deem advisable, and to in
quire into conditions of trading in tho
local market, made its report late today.
It recommended that the exchange should
adopt tlie standard types of the grades
and half grades of white cotton promul
gated by the department of agriculture in
1919 as the types to be used by the ex
change for the classification of gulf and
Texas cotton, adding thereto one lower
grade.
The committee further recommended
that types of upland white cotton equiva
lent in grade should be prepared by the
exchange, with the approval of the gov
ernment if possible, to be used for tho
classification of upland cottons and that
a strong and determined effort be made
to secure the co-operation of tlie depart
ment of agriculture and of Congress in
having such upland types added to and
, »rnm*»nt standard types for
upland cotton and adding thereto one
Standard Types Recommended
It was recommended also that the gov
ernment standard types be adopted with
the additional additions noted, to take ef
fect beginning April 1, 1916, but the com
mittee stated that while advocating tho
adoption of the government standard
types, it was nevertheless of the opinion
that it would be better for the New York
cotton exchange and for the cotton trade
generally if the standard types known
as the International standard types could
be substituted for the present govern
ment standard types. In the event that
such substitution was made by the gov
ernment on or before April 1, 1911, the ex
change would adopt these international
types; otherwise the present government
standard types will be the trading basis
cn the exchange.
On the recommendation of the commit
tee the board of managers has proposed
an amendment providing for monthly
revisions and also a rule that, the giving
of credit for speculative jmrposes should
be prohibited.
The committee on southern warehouses
has been asked to endeavor to work out
and to propose a practical method of
putting into operation a plan of delivery
of cotton In the south.
The board also authorized the appoint
ment of a committee to consider the sub
jects of spinning values of cotton in
conjunction with the work now betng
done by the department of agriculture in
that matter.
All of the recommendations will be
considered at a special meeting of the
exchange to be held on December 2.

CABINET LADIES
DENY RUMORED
SOCIAL STRIFE
Cabinet Officer’s Wife Says Report
Is Base Slander—Rush of So
cial Duties Force Cut
in Calls
Washington, November 21.—There is
to be no social war in official circles
and all previous reports of such a
vicious struggle between wives of cab
inet officials and the helpamt. s of
members of the Mouse are declared to
be the. sheerest nonsense by a cabinet
officer’s wife, who deemed the rumors
of sufficient importance to warrant a
statement calaculated to lay them at
rest.
According to the original reports of
the trouble the wives of representa
tives had been stricken from calling
lists of the cabinet group of women
because the latter had deemed it im
possible to meet all the social demands
made upon them.
This, today was denied as a bast
slander by the cabinet officer’s wife,
who declined to reveal her identity at
this time.
“We called on the ladies of the Sen
ate last spring.” she explained, “be
cause the Senate had confirmed our
husbands’ appointments, and while we
were house hunting and more or less
overwhelmed by our new duties, we
had no time to make any calls except
ing those that were immediately nec
essary. We had no idea that any of
fense would be given by this. We all
expected that the extra session would
be short and that with the beginning
of the new session we would all be
ready to take up our regular social
duties.”
MATRONS MAKE BEST
TEACHERS FOR YOUNG,

Present System Puts Premium on
Greatest Sin in the World,
Celibacy, Says Prof. Earl
Barnes in Lecture
Kansas City, November 21.—Matrons
make the best possible teachers for the
young, according to Prof. Earl Barnes,
who lectured before the Missouri uni-,
verslty extension center here today.
“The present day educational sys
tem puts a premium on the greatest
sin in the world, celibacy,” said Pro
fessor Barnes. "Particuarly is it wrong
to insist that only unmarried women be
allowed to teach in public schools.
“What better teachers could be found
for children than the cultured married
woman corning from a congenial home
into the school room? No greater insult
was ever given to American woman
hood than the act of the New Yoi^k
board of education in asking tin- resig
nation of a married teacher who had
requested leave of absence that she
might become a mother.”

_ ft
New York. November 21.—George H,
McGuire, the Syracuse bonding: agent
for state highway and barge canal
contractors, is a partner of Charles F.
Murphy. Jr., nephew of the leader of
Tam many Hall. He so testified today
at the John Doe inquiry into highway
graft and suit! lie had an agreement
with Murphy to divide all the bonding
business they obtained. •
Further, McGuire confessed to hav
ing attempted to “hold up" at least
throe asphalt companies for 55000 con
tributions to the statu democratic com
mittee in return for getting them con
tracts from tin* state highway depart
ment. McGuire was to get a commis
sion of 1 cent a gallon for all the
asphalt the companies sold to the stato
or to contractors, lit- said, and the com
panies were to charge the contribu
tions against the commission.
Two of the companies—the Warner
Quinlan company and the Union uU
company of California— did not con
tribute, he said. Whether the third,
the Barber Asphalt company, con
tributed McGuire said ho did not know
but the Barber company got the con
tract. He said he had received a total
of 51250 from Arthur S. Johnson, sales
agent of the Barber company, but in
sisted that these were not commissions
but money given him as campaign con
tributions to Governor dui/.er.

company. J^ast year he received coin
missions also on sales made to the state
by the Alston Cement company, the
Dryden Cement company, the Kentucky

These admissions were drawn oat of
the witness only after insistent repe
tition of questions by the prosecutor.
Before he look the stand McGuire
went before the grand jury and among

thought he would be able to have him
