ilgll! at tile Opening of tliO bCCUIIll
hi-hHlun of the twenty -seventh Mexi
can congress. In It he promised to
npure no effort! to bring about the
utii estiic ted election of u president of
the republic in-xl inonh.
Colonel Huertu attid the Hi ruined
diplomatic relations between Mexico
and the I'nltud States had cuused the
Mexican nation to suffer unmerited
ul Diction end had returded the pacifi
cation of the country. Nevertheless,
hi- hoped for nn eurly solution of the
(inference! between the two nations
anil to nee Mexico and the l ulled
Slates once more united In bonds of
Drew Sharp Distinction.
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
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. Vou may be sure It will eon
Htitn'e the greatest possible triumph
for the interim government to sur
render office to its successor If the
laiter, as Is to he expected, enters
upon its functions wl'h public peace
and order nn accomplished fact."
Spent Money I'at.
Of the treasury funds, amounting
ai the hednnlng of the last fiscal year
to $27.t;no,ono, ji24.onn.noo, he said,
had been expended for th pacification
of the caun'ry. Oft he loan of $100,
fi no. 0 no, authorized In May, French
bankers took $30,000,000 at 90. Out
of this Speyor & Co. had been paid
VO.UOO.Oen, half of which was a loan
to the national treasury and half of
tie monetary commission.
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
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.
"As this affair Is of go dellca'e a
rature and as the permanent commis
sion of congress has already been In
formed of the state of negotiations,
which as yet have not ben broken
off, I have only to Indicate that the
government hopes, with good grounds,
to e quickly solved the differences
which day bv day keep In suspense
that good friendship which of old
united, should unite us, to our power
ful civilized neighbor!.
"Fpon taking charge, by virtue of
the law, of the presidency of the re

'I bellove," the speaker added,
"that this is going to be one of the
Kicalest and grandest encampments
in the history of the G. A. R.
"This gathering touches the hearts'
more than any other because the

against us are now first and foremost
with us and both are hand, heart and
soul for the union."

ing regret at belli gunable to attend

are utmost us active in making you
comfortable as they were 50 years
ago In making you uncomfortable."

l.lTTI.FTON, N. 1... Kept. Hi.
Compel for Harry Kendall Thaw to
day laid the foundation for plans to
curry his case to the supereme court
of the United Htates Ii such a step
la found necessary.
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
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
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
ling elupM'd since ihe date on

of (lie rumors which d-alt Impartially
wbh attacks upon Americans, an army
uprising and the assassination of tho
president, Independence day came and
went with inching to mar tho holiday
I'olltlc.-illy the great event was the
reopening of (ongrcsa and the read
ing of the president's message. Hut
w ithout doubt I lento ui Huiirta was
moved less by thut than by the spec
tacle of thousands of students, cl l
i.iih and soldiers doing lilm honor as
he stood on the balcony of tho na
tional puluce reviewing the great pa
rade, the feuture In which publlo in
terest centered. More than 4,000 vol
unteers and students, ranging in age
from 12 vears up, had their taste of
militia discomfort, standing for hour
In a drizzling rain und plodding
hrough muddy streets.
Were I ndaunled.
They bore hardships manfully,
however, marching proudly between
immense lines of onlookers, whom the
rain failed to daunt, through the prin
cipal streets, past the palace and to
varloug points where they disbanded.
It Is es line tod that close to 10.000
marchers participated In the review.
They Included 1,000 of "fUnnquet's
Veterans," who did hard service In
Ihe 7-upsta country, regulars and vol
unteers, cavalry and Infantry, rurales,
mounted and foot police, artillery, m
deta and hospi'al corps. Next to tfte
students and volunteers, who received
Ihe most enthusiastic applause, were
several ambulance automobiles, filled
with whit gowned young women of
Ihe Med Cross hospital f!ld service.
Along the line of march balconies,
housetops and pvemn's were crowd
ed, the nlr was filled with flowers and
confetti was showered upon those who
inarched. At each end of Snn Fran
i inch nvi'tiue, the principal business
thoroughfare, triumphal arches had
been erected and added to the gen-
ra.l dcoorHtive. effect of the banners
hung from light pos's and window
and the flutes of various nations cov
ering the store fronts
President Huerta and his aides, rid
ing through the streets after the con
clusion nf the early ceremonies at
Cbapiiltopco, were greeted with wild
applause. The president's greatest
triumph appeared to me at hlg re
ception at the Joint session of depu
ties and senators when he entered to
reed bis message. He was greeted
with vivas, both by the crowd sur
rounding the chamber and that which
willed the hall. Six o'clock was tho
hour set for the formal opening of
the session and a presidential salute
of twenty-one guns was fired. Prompt
to the minute, the executive mounted
Ihe stop of the building, stopping
only an Instant nt the doors to how
his acknowledgment.
The eltv was ablaze with Incandes
cent lights tonight. All public bulH
Ings were profusely decorated. t"n
tll midnight the thoroughfares pre
sented the appearance of New Year's
eve In the cities of the I'nlted States.
Crowds filled the sorola In front of
the national palace, while crowds
undered about the streets, tooting
horns and making the most of the ex
piring holiday.
