Milt- resents Views on Which I'ncle Sam Will Act. Washington. March y.?American ] citizens again have been warned to leave Mexico City in view of the critical situation. Secretary Bryan announced to-1 night that transportation facilities would be sought for as many as de-j sired to leave. The battleship Georgia and the armored cruiser Washington were ordered by Secretary Daniels, after conferences with President Wilson, to proceed immediately to Vera Cruz. consular messages irom \ era Cruz stated that it was reported that the evacuation of .Mexico City began last night. Enrique C. hiorente, Gen Villa's Washington representative, received a message saying Zapatista forces j occupied .Mexico City today immediately on the evacuation by Obregon's troops. Word came from American Consul Silliman that he had delivered to Gen. Carranza the formal note from the United States government demanding an improvement in conditions for foreigners in the territory under Carranza's control. These were the principal developments today in the Mexican situation. the importance of which today overshadowed in official Washington interest in tlie European war. An Impressive Vote. Although the contents of the notei to Carranza were not announced, its i tone impressed members of the dip-1 lomatic corps that serious consequences would ensue if Carranza! li 3 * ? u ~ a ,3 ~ ~ iu utrt-u us ucuitinus. 1 uc United States, it "was learned, de-l scribed conditions as "intolerable"! and called on Carranza to take steps i necessary to correct the situation. Incendiary utterances of Gen. Obregcn were noted as likely to stir up feeling against foreigners, giving rise possibly to riots and outrages. The note pointed out that if harm befell foreigners the American government would hold Carranza officials "personally responsible" and would take the necessary means to impose the responsibility where it belonged. The communication was not in the nature of an ultimatum. President Wilson himself declared j that the United States did not utter; ultimatums, but presented views and acted accordingly. German Loss Three .Million. Paris. March 6.?An official note issued by the French press bureau declares German losses since the beginning of hostilities in killed, wound ed, sick and prisoners total 3,000,-1 000. This calculation is based on | the known casualties in ten German regiments. OXOK KICH; 'l>lKS I'Al'I'Kll. Son of Adding Machine Inventor Fatally Wounds Himself. Detroit. March 7.?Horace S. Burroughs. 30 years of age. son of the late William S. Burroughs, wealthy inventor of an adding machine, died in a hospital here today from a sclfinfiicted wound. He was penniless and in frail health, friends said. Several years ago. according to former associates, the young man was worth more than $250,000. Some Wilson Thoughts. Following are some striking sentences from an address delivered in Washington by President Wilson: "When neace is as handsome as war. there will be no war." "It is necessary that not a plow or; a spade be idle in the future, if thej world is to be fed." "Business men came in the past! with all their bristles out to see. not' what they could accomplish (tor leg-' islation). but what they could pre-: vent." "When men engage in the pursuits i of peace in the same spirit of self-' sacrifice and conscious service of the i community with which the common 1 soldier encases in war. then there j will be wars no more." ".Most of our business combinn- j tions have been fitted with a safety lock." "One does not have time to think in a city. You can set contagion in a city, hut you do not always know j where the germ came from." "No man can lie consistently, and j he cannot lie about everything if he talks to you long." i AN IMI'OKTAM IU I.I.Vti. ||^ Collector lleywanl Makes att \n-| iioiiiieenient of (ieneral Interest. I so>l \ Columbia. .March s. l>. <". Iley-I ward, collector of internal revenue, lias made a rather important ruling state relative to the filling of prescriptions . | containing opium coming under the Harrison anti-narcotic law, containing less than the amounts specified in section f? of the act. which are (?< as follows: Two grains of opium. Bulti 1-4 grain morphine. 1-S grain heroin, tor or 1 grain codein. or any salt or de- Albe rivative of any of them in one fluid sista ounce, or if in a solid or semi-solid ^ preparation, any one avoirdupois ' ounce. The ruling was made in response to requests from numerous 1 serio druggists who hll prescriptions or dispense compounds containing opiates in amounts less than specified ^ above. The collector holds that aj ISy record should be kept of any and all! uooc drugs coming within the scope of the! char Harrison anti-narcotic law dispensed -lone by druggists, even though theinish amounts prescribed do not reach the J limit specified in said section ?"> of the' S|le(j act, as. when filling such precrip- Ches tions. the druggist will, of course, j portdeplete his stock. I eonti These prescriptions can be refilled.' nK1,j, Due to a misrepresentation bv one; 'lit | of the drug houses a great many in-' j vemories have been received at t ho j | collector's office. These inventories, j "ter which should have been taken before'as .March should be retained by the| at druggist, physician or other party' ,m*a | liable for the tax. subject to inspee-| Kt tion by a duly authorized orucer 011 vine tile law. i on \ The law requires that a physician.; fatal dentist or veterinary surgeon issuing, then a prescription shall sign his name in time; full. The collector holds that the J jj, I given name bv which the party isL. . tist | known should be written in full. For few ! instance, "John R. Doe." "J. Richard njenJ Doe" would be a signature in full. ,, I . sold | but J. R. Doe Would not be a signa-j trje(j I ture in full. j A number of physicians seem to I be under a misapprehension as to, anc* writing prescriptions for habitual died I users. It is the opinion of the collee-i havii tor that this law is to minimize the j Prec< use of these drugs, and the matter child of prescribing for the habitual user yard, is left entirely to the discretion of Ar the reputable physician. | a ve CHILD SKltlOlSLY BURNER. pCg ~"Thur Was Ix'ft Alone in Koom With Oi>en 1 were Hreplaoe. sen(( ~ life.
