that "Pharaoh's daughter went down
to the water." or, to speak by The
Book, "came down to wash herself
at the river; and her maidens walked
along by tin river's side." It is also

State Department Oraers to Am
bassador Read by Presi
dent Huerta.
Strono Efforts Will Be Made to Re
cover Sscreta That Would Be
Dangerous In Hands of Hos
tile Nstlon.
Washington, July SI. A copy of
the official code of the state depart
ment containing information worth
thousands of dollars to foreign gov
ernments has fallen into the hands of
the Mexican administration and is be
ing used to further the ends of the
Huerta regime. It was asserted here.
This Is regarded as the explanation
of the sudden calling home of Henry
Lane Wilson, ambassador to Mexico.
This government found It was unable
to communicate with him secretly.
Intimate dispatches as to this gov
ernment's policies In Mexico aent to
Ambassador Wilson by the state de
partment are now believed to have
been read by the Huerta government
Stolen by Mexican 8py.
Presumably the code book was
stolen by a spy from the United States
embassy In Mexico City.
For some months state department
officials have suspected that the gov
ernment telegrams from Mexico city
have been tampered with. It ia de
clared, but this was not considered im
portant s all the dispatches were In
code, and therefore theoretically il
legible. About three weeks ago, how
ever, government officials here had
their first Inkling that the Mexicans
were obtaining the gist of the dis
patches passing between the state de
partment and Ambassador Wilson.
At first It was suspected that an
employe of the department in this
city was to blame, but investigation
proved this to be Impossible. The tel
egrams were read only by thsee per
sons In Washington the official teleg
rapher, Robert Rose, confidential sec
retary to Secretary of State Bryan,
and the secretary of stato himself.
All of these men were above suspi
cion. '
The agents of the almost .unknown
"secret service" of the state depart
men then were put on the trail and
evidence waa obtained that the gov
ernment dispatches had been "lifted"
from the wires in Mexico and decoy
ed, the Information contained therein
being transmitted to President Huer-
ta and his cabinet As this informa
tion was. at times, highly uncompli
mentary to the present government In
Mexico, the matter at once took on
an International aspect and the ef
forts of the department's agents to
discover the exact location ot the
"leak" were redoubled, but In vain.
Valuable to Hostile Nation.
Every effort will be made to locate
the copy of the stato department code
and destroy it. It would prove of im
mense value if It fell Into the bands ot
a hostile nation.
It wus asserted that the United
States had felt Its policy In Mexico
blocked in advance during the last few
weeks, owing to Information being re
ceived by the Huerta government of
the moves of the state department be
fore Ambassador Wilson received tho
It waa reported that the administra
tion had decided to abandon the Mon
roe doctrine to maintain Its policy of
"peace at any price."
