Jr. Wm. P.avard Hale, who is now on

is expected to place before Pres. Wil
Fon and Secy, of State Pryan import
ant facts in the Mexican situation
which have a bearing on the nego
tiations between the two countries.
The president's personal represent
ative. John Lind. is still here await
ing instructions from Washington, but
fo far has not received any indica
tion from the Mexican government
that it would be willing to make
more concessions to the American de
anands. It was coni-idere-l not Improbable
that Foreign Minister Gamboa's ex
planation that Gen .Huerta could not
become a candidate for the presidency
ni the next election because of tho
constitutional amendment, made dur
ing the Madero administration, might
bo construed by the American repre
sentatives as an assurance that he
would withdraw definitely from the
executive power after October at the
latest, but Mr. I,ind is fully cognizant
that tho Mexican constitution does not
jercvent Gen. Huerta from resigning
and thus rendering himself eligible
for the presidency. Mr. land is also
well informed regarding the editor
ials in the Mexican newspapers since
the exchange of notes, in which i?
Migcrested the necessity of Gen. Huer
ta accepting such candidacy.

The announcement that Gen. Felix
1Yi:7. may return in time to make a

MEXICO CITY, Aug. 31. A wave
of patriotism appears to bo sweeping
over Mexico, and from many states
and from all classes, it is announced,
assurances of allegiance and offers of
service are being received daily by
Pres. Huerta and his minister of war.
Plans are being made for as large
display as possible of military' strength
on Kept. 16, Independence day, when
it is proposed to hold a big parade,
in which 20,000 are expected to
march.
The war department has been call
ed upon to furnish military' instructors
to a dozen cities, where the fear of
being impressed for service against
the revolutionists has given away be
fore a later patriotic ardor, thou
sands of all ages are asking to be
drilled In the use of arms.
Nor is the aid afforded the govern
ment confined to offers to serve in the
ranks. A delegation of planters from
the state of Morelos has waited upon
the president and tendered a subscrip
tion of 3,000,000 pesos.
Ministers Gamboa and Urrutia, of
foreign affairs and the Interior re
spectively, today issueel denials of the
declaration from tho war department
concerning tho shifting of army divi
sion headquarters from interior points
to the coasts and frontier. It is now
explained that if these shifts are made
it will bo solely for the purpose of
guarding against rebel operations.
Workmen are Knlisting.
In addition to the students of th
preparatory schools, where military
instruction has been enforced for
some weeks, the manual of arms is
being taught workmen who are at
tending night schools and tho em
ployes of the tax department. The
employes of several banks are also
said to have organized a company
and profferetl their services.
Tho newspapers continue to devote
themselves editorially to the subject
of the late diplomatic exchanges,
dwelling upon tho alleged sympathy
and encouragement Mexico is receiv
ing from the press of France, Ger
many and Great Pritain.
Followers of Gen. Felix Diaz expect
him to return to Mexlce City not later
than Oct. 4. to push his campaign
for the presidency. Senor Gamboa
said today that no further instructions
regarding the Japanese mission, to
which Gen. Diaz was appointed, would
bo Issueel by his elepartment until
after November, the month in which
the elections are to he held.
The excitement among American
residents over Pres. Wilson's warning
subsided to a large degree over Sun
day. A limited number of persons left
on trains to Vera Cruz todn.v. Consul
Gen. Shanlkln spent most of the day
in his offices, but received fewer visits
than on previous days. The opinion
is growing that the warning, so far
ns regards the large centers, will not
bo generally obeyed, unless further
information of a definite character is
forthcoming.

Claim That It Will Not Be Sus
tained and That if It is an
Appeal Will Keep Thaw, in
Canadian Jail.
PRISONER IS NOT
TO FILE ANY SUIT
Signs Affidavit Freeing Boud
reau of Any Blame For His
Arrest Incensed at Action
Taken by Chief.
SHERBROOKE, Que.. Aug. 31.
Harry K. Thaw's lawyers, swept off
their feet yesterday by the sudden
move of Wm. Travers Jerome in ob
taining through John Boudreau, tho
Coaticook chief of police, a writ of
habeas corpus requiring Thaw's pro
duction in the superior court here on
Tuesday, spent the day in conferences
and tonight gave renewed expression
of their belief that the writ would not
be sustained.
"If it is sustained," said W. K. Mc
Keown of the Thaw forces, "there Is
always recourse to appeal, and I am
inclined to think that appeal to the
court of reviews or to the court of
appeals would act as a stay and hold
our client in jail safe from deporta
tion. In the face of such circum
stances I do not see how New York
state can make any mave until the
king's bench convenes in October."
Thaw spent the day in his cell
writing letters and dictating to his
stenographer. As was the case last
Sunday there was no religious service
in the prison. Several women called
and gave the fugitive flowers. In fact
his cell has been banked with them
ever since his confinement.
Says It Was Mistake.
W. L. Shurtleff of Coaticook. the
first lawyer retained for Thaw after
his arrest, said today he had heard
that Boudreau told a number of
friends that he had signed the peti
tion of ' habeas corpus for Thaw:
through a mistake. Someone had
told him, so the story ran, that he
was affixing his signature to a docu
ment which would Indemnify 'him
should Thaw decide to sue. for false
arrest. He was Thaw's captor at
Coaticook. and in his petition for tho
writ pet forth that he feared that ho
misht be liable for damages.
Boudreau denied, however, that he
had signed the application without
knownig what he was doing. Friends
might criticise his act, he added, but
he had acted with his eyes open.
Thaw's lawyers denied that they
were trying to coerce Bouelreau into
asking for a discontinuance of the
writ.
"Wo presume that he knew what
he was doing," said McKeown, "al
though we have no daubt that he was
frightened to some extent by repeated
suggestions that he might have a big
damage suit on his hands unless ho
tried to get Thaw out of Jail,"
Jerome Out of City.
Mr. Jerome and his assistant. Depu
ty Atty. Gen. Franklin Kennedy, were
out of town today. They left here
Saturday night for Quebec. There
were reports that they had decided to
go on to Ottawa to see dominion of
ficials, but this cannot be confirmed
here.
Tomorrow there will be no court
proceedings. The town was tilled up
with strangers tonight, coming to at
tend tho Shcrbrooke fair which opens
this week.
Should Tuesday's court battle go
against New York in its fight to re
turn Thaw to Matteawan, two possible
lines of action will still be open. One
would be to have the commitment on
which Thaw is held nolle prossed by
the minister of justice, the other
would be to fenew efforts looking to
its withdrawal by Alexus Depute, the
Coaticook Justice of the peace, who
drew it up. Rupuls has remained ob
durate so far, although he says the
immigration authorities, who are as
anxious ax are those from New York
to get hold of the prisoner, have been
pressing him hard. ' Emissaries from
the Thaw family have likewise visited
the justice, and he and his wife are
standing by their guns.
Thaw is highly incensed at Boud
reau for asking for the habeas corpus.
He never had any Intention of suing
anybody. It became known tonight
that he had made aflidavit to this ef
fect before a notary yesterday, signing
a document releasing the chief of po
lice from any liability. At the same
time he sicned another paper repudi
ating any interest in the proceedings.
As a habeas corpus writ is supposed
to be "in behalf of a prisoner," these
Thaw documents will be used in con
testing Boudreau's right to ask for a
writ.

Wave of Patriotism Seems to
be Sweeping Over Republic

DUBLIN, Aug. 31. The fierce riot
ing in connection with the tramway
strike was renewed Sunday. Hun
dreds of perrons including 30 consta
bles were injurfj. .(n Saturday: 60 or J
more persons"Tr tnjiired. .JllVWfo

Tho strike committee, in tho inter
est of peace, had rescinded early in
the morning the proposed mass meet
ing in O'Connell st. and had substi
tuted a parade from Beresford place
to Croydon at Fairview, a suburb on
the north side of the city. The au
thorities meanwhile had prohibited
the mass meeting.
Croydon park belongs to the Trans
port Workers union and a meeting
was held there without disorder. But
on the return march attempts of the
police by baton charges to disperse
;:he constantly growing crowds led at
once to rioting. The mob was furth
er incensed by the arrest of one of
the strike leaders, James Larkin,
against whom a warrant had been
out for 2 4 hours. He was wearing a
disguise for the purpose of eluding
arrest, but an admirer raised the cry,
"Three cheers for Larkin." The po
lice immediately pounced on him and
violent fcenes resulted.
Tho rioting became general In vari
ous sections of the city. The police
charged repeatedly with their sticks
and this led to pitched battles. Stones,
brick-bats and bottles were hurled by
the infuriated rioters and the streets
soon were covered . with prostrate
forms. More than SO arrests were
made.
The train service Is completely sus
pended. Tho exact number of injured
is not known, but Including Saturday's
victims it is believed It will reach
400. '

SUNDAY; ALMOST
Man Leaps From Bridge, Another
Falls Into Iiake So Tliey
Tell Reporter.
Casualties on Sunday almost reach
ed two, according to the reports that
were sent to the police station, but a
foot-sore, and iveary reporter who
r ached his office at an early, hour
Monday .'morning, announced that
hjh stofjot werp the work of a bunch
of practical jokers.
"A man leaped off the Leeper park
bridge," said. the first report. Accord
ing to the party who claimed to be an
eye witness to the - affair, the man
took the plunge. He said that as soon
aM the man hit the water, he changed
his mind and began crying for help.
"He saw he wasn't going to get
much help and so he itwam out," re
plied the witness. The last seen of
the man, according to the reports,
was that he was chasing back over
towards Navarre place with his
clothes dripping water at every step.
The reporter arrived on the scene,
but found the clue had dried in the
meantime. Some sympathizer tried
to get him to follow a street sprink
ler, but the reporter turned down the
clue.
In the second affair the police were
aoked to go to Chain lakes, as a man
was reported drowned there. They
were making their preparations for a
hurried run, when work arrived that
"we have found the b3dy."
The man was supposed to have
beet Steve Bilinskl, 1U5 S. Michigan
st. Later Bilinskl turred up and de
nied the report. Hit: friends run
across him. he said, and of course
forgot to tell the police that they
found the body able to sit up and take
nourishment.
