The provisional president drew a distinction between the attitude of the Mexican government toward the I'titt'-d State and that of the people of Hint na'lon, wiving: "The ton o ness of our diplomatic re lations with Hie government of the Vnlled S'nlf if America, nlthoimh lucidly not with that people," has put M'xlco into a Mate of apprehcriHlon., The message wag disappointing 'o many who had expected that Provisi onal President Huerta would deal at pome length with the recent diplo matic exchanges. This subject, how ever, he said, "being no delicate and the permanent commission eon press being already informed," he passed with a bare mention. The dep uties and senators in joint session filled the floor of the chamber of deputies. The balconies were packed, the diplomatic gallery being filled with foreign representatives and their families. Was Much Choerliifr. The silence which prevailed during the reading of the presidential docu ment by the clerk wag broken at In tervals by prolonged cheering, In which the congressmen were Joined by the crowds in the galleries. In his peroration Huerta said: "The Mexican government regards the pacification of the country as an urgent necessity In order to restore the public services to their normal Mute, to re-establish the political, so cial and economic equilibrium and to make possible a program of reforms which will satisfy the national aspl rnlon. "I will spare no effort and no sac ilflce to obtain the coveted peace and to guarantee fully In the coming elections the free casting of the bal lols.

For the nrmy (i.fiOO horses and 1, 300 rentes had been purchased. The na tional cartridge fntory. he said, was turning out 200.000 cartridges monthly. Resides a great number of cannons, machine guns, rifles, carbine! and nmmunl'inn, the government han con tracted abroad for ten aeroplanes, seventy-seven armored automobiles, fifty unarmored automobile and two armored transports. At the close of the reading of the presidential message the session of conercss was ndjourned until tomor row. President Huerta's message. In part, was as follows: 'lb-sides the fatrlcldal strife which exhnuts us. the tenseness of our dip lomatic relations with the govern ment of the I'nlted States, although luckily not with that people, hag put us In a state of apprehension, has mfide us suffer more than ono afflic tion, which was not merited, and re tarded the complete pacification of the republic, Hope for Peace.

When the governor of New Hamp shire pusses on the mutter of the ex tradition of Thaw t.i New York ut the hearing to be helit September 211, the findings. If adverse to Thuw, will be reviewed by the Cnlted States dis trict court and. should a decision against him then be rendered, suc oesslve appeals will be taken until the case reaches the highest court In the lu 11 J. Wou tiivut ictory. Tills Was the announcement made by thu Thaw luwyers tonight, after the most notable court victory for the fugitive, either In Canada or thu I'nlted Htutos, since his oscape from Mattcawan asylum for thu criminal insane. It was made after a hearing on a federal writ -of habeas corpus, obtained In Thaw's behalf and invok ing the fourteenth amendment to the constitution, had been Indefinitely suspended until such tlmo as coi-,.--M saw fit to begin arguments afte- i.,c extradition matter had lien decluca by the governor. Kdgar Aldrieh, 1 1. S. Judge for the district of New Hampshire, In de ciding that Thaw had the right, ill effect, to hold his ha i n.s cori :.s writ in abeyance, explained in his rescript thut this was the petitioner's privilege In that should he be ordered extra dited, "it would still be open to fed erul authority to afford such protec tion as the constitution and the laws of the I'nlted States require." Thaw's Jubilant counsel, headed by Moses Grossman and L. J. Vorhatis, departed for Now York, leaving their client in the Joint custody of the Cnited States mar.ihul and Sheriff Drew of Coos county, nto to return until the hearing before the governor Is. called. The head of the New York Rtate forces, Jerome and Deputy At torney General Kennedy and Sheriff Hornbeck of Dutchess county, also left tonight. They will come back for the hearing Tuesday. Thaw Is Jubilant. Thuw, according to the understand ing reached, will be taken to Concord In the morning. He was quartered ut Thayer's hotel tonight, feeling fine and predicting that the gates of Mat teuwan would never close behind him again. Mr. Jerome had little or nothing to say. "Thaw ts tied up now1 with a federal writ," he said, "and there Is no getting around it. Hut the ques tions to be decided by the governor are srimple and we hope for vic tory." Concluding his rescript today Judge Aldrieh engaged Mr. Jerome In In formal colloquy as regards Thaw's slat im as un insane man or a crim inal. It was perhaps the most Inter esting part of the brief court pro ceedings. "The novelty of the situation," said the court, "as evervbody must see, results from the fact that Thaw was held in an institution in New York as un Insane person und the offense or crime upon which it is sought to have him extradited consists, accord ing to their own account of It, in his escape from the Institution. Now, whether the state of New York, hold ing a person us an Insane person, Is in a position to set up his escape as a crime within the meaning of the federal constitution and of the state authorities, is a question. If you have found anything In the books, Mr. Je rome on that question, you have done better than I have. It seems to mo that It Involves a novel proposition." Jerome: "I understand It to be the rule us laid down In the Cxolgosx caso and the Guiteau case, thnt if a person knew the nature and quality of the act and that it was wrong. It did not matter whether he was sune or not. ' The court: "There results the nov. elty. You soemed to assume at tho outset the questions were entirely clear. I don't think they are." Jerome: "t think on the argument I will be able to show to your honor decisions of the federal courts In ex tradition that tho door is closed to your honor'! Investigation of these questions." The court: "If you stand on the po sition that extradition is Justified, provided Thaw was of atifflclent mind to commit a criminal act at the time he escaped from Matteawan, you put a qualification upon our proposition at once. Now, where is that question of mental condition wlifiln the moan ing and scope of the extradition law to he determined In New York or In New Hampshire? When one sov ereign stute ask! another aovereign state forcibly to seize a man and carry him across the line to another Ju risdiction, is any question closed?" Jerome: "We think that all that will be open for your honor'! Inves tigation will be: 'Is ne charged with a crime? Wai he In the state ut the lime of the commission of the crime and now found here and Is he the person mentioned?' " The court: "I think that you are perfectly correct in thut proposition us a general one, but when one Is oharged with a crimlnul act and that a' t is solely grounded in the escape from a warrant which holds him In an insane asylum, have you case which hold that he should be extra dited as a criminal?" Jerome: "We have cases which hold as you have In Ihe federal Ju risdiction that an Insane man Is held to criminal responsibility." The court: There is really no ques tion for further discussion. But I will say that counsel on both sld 1 DAY ling elupM'd since ihe date on wliicli the city iidiiilulslraliou, a month pre1oiihl dctiiiln-ly prom ised (hut It would liiriiisli an am ple supply of pore drinking water through (lie cllv water mains ami (lie promise luta not yet hivn im plied. littler exumlnu cases wbi'h involwi Indictments and the I Mai-, ol isnin s of mental capacity an.

Any chunoo of his being killed or injured by the bomb was foiled by thu watchfulness of (ieneral Otis' .I.i i;iiihoi!

The firm Infernal machine sent to (bneral Otis was found at Ills resi dence a few hours after hlg newspap er plant had been destroyed through the efforts of the McN.uniira conspir ators. The attempt on Ills life today wis attributed by the general lo ugencb-s friendly to those whose conspiracy ended In the destruction nf the Times building and the killing of 21 men three year ago. The police und postal authorities, however, believe thut the Mexican question possibly had a part In It, llloiiie the Mexicans.

"I poo hoood the Idea at first.' said General Otis "hut examined the box: carefully. I could see parts matches end Mack powder.

Chief of Police Sebastian is in clined to the theory thai tho bomb hud been sent by some persons vlo lentl yopposed to Oi neral Otis' news paper policy regarding the Iluertu administration lu Mexico.
