Victor Corral, Presiding Officer, to Prevent Mexican Congress From Acting. PRES. HUERTA APPEARS DETERMINED TO STAY Protection Will be Given Euro peans as Well as .Americans by Fleet Now Anchored in the Mexican Ports. MEXICO CITY. Nov. 22. The bulk Of the evidence at hand continues to Indicate that Yictoriano Huerta is unalterably determined not to accede to the demands of the United States government for his elimination us president of Mexico; but there is some basin for the. relief that he may at last give In. but in such a manner as to leave the Impression that he acted of his own free will, defying Washington to tho last. The high-handed parliamentary practice in the chamber of deputies Friday afternon gave rise to consid orale speculation. The roll of mem bers was called and it was quite evi dent that the number necessary for a quorum wa.s present, hut Col. Victor Corral, presiding in the absence of Kluardo Tamariz, the speaker who was said to be ill, looked the deputies straight in the eye and declared there was no quorum. Not a deputy pro tested and the chamber stood ad journed until Saturday. It was suggested that this action miht be part of a plan to bring about the death of congress and thus split hairs with the Washington govern ment, which through John Lind, Pres. Wilson's personal representative, had insisted that this new legislative body should not come into existence. Under tho law should there be no quorum three times in succession the house would be automatically dis solved. One Mexican. speculating upon the motive for Friday's adjourn ment, suggested that it was merely a time-saving device, adding, "time for Huerta today is line spung gold." It became known Friday that Man uel Garza Aldape, prior to his expul sion from the cabinet, submitted for the consideration of the United States, a proposition signed by Pres. Huerta, that congress should meet, merely for the transaction of three or four meas ures, namely, ratification of the decree of Oct. 11, dissolving congress; de claring tho elections of president and vlco president null and calling for new elections, and because there might arise, the question as to the le gality of the new chamber and senate, calling an election for deputies and senators as well. It was understood that after these measures had been acted upon the new congress would adjourn and the nation again would await the results of elections. For this reason, it is not believed that the no quorum rule will be car ried out indefinitely and that it was tised today merely as a matter for sparring for time. - AVI LI) CUT UnOTUCTTOX. WASHINGTON. Nov. 22. Rear Admiral Fletcher, commanding the American ll-et on the east coast of Mexico, late Friday cabled the navy department a message he had receiv ed from Gen. A.guilar. the constitu tionalist leader, who bus occupied the vicinity of Tuxpam, giving assurances that American and other extensive oil interests in that territory would be protected. Admiral Fletcher is under orders to take such steps as may be neces sary to protect foreign lives and prop erty, reruns from Tuxpam hav'.ng indicated that the constitutionalists were threatening to destrov the tanks of Rritlsh oil interests. Tins led to talk of the possibility of the landing of marines or bluejackets from the American battleships and develop ments in the situation have been awaited with intense interest. HoM Conferences. Prequcnt c-;ferenees Friday be tween Secy, iiryan. Counsellor John Uassett More and Acting Secy. Roosevelt and two visits, bv the sec retary of state to the white houe, accompanied by Mr. Roosevelt, were the outward marks of the deep inter est felt in ofi-cial circles in the Mex ican situation. It developed that the welfare of the two Madero brothers and their rela tives, who had soueht asylum in the American consuhtte at Vera ni7. - is the feature of these conferences. There was a strenvr desire oe. the part of the administration to learn whether any resistance had be-n offered by the local Mexican authorities to the re moval of the .r;:gr.s aboard a bat tleship and it was quite apparent that n sense of relief was experienc d when It wrus learned that it had not Ik en necessary to employ force. Late In the day the department re ceived a cablegram from Admira' Fletcher announcing that "Daniel Madero and five companions -ere re ceived Friday morning on board the Louisiana a refugees." It was saiil at the navy department that no special instructions had b :. given in regard to the. treatment of th? refugees, though he had been told . to confer with John End. who last .evening had been authored by Pr .

Hitchcock and Five Re publicans Join in Opposition Measure and Fight Will Be Carried to Floor of Senate. WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 2. The vSen- ate banking and currency committee Saturday reported its "agreement to disagree" by presenting two separate measures for currency reform. One was framed by Sen. Owen and five of his democratic colleagues. The other was framed by Sen. Hitchcock, !a democrat, and five republican mem bers of the committee. For many weeks, the committee had been tied in a knot by discussion of the measure passed by the house and now the senate as a whole will have to solve tho tangle. Contingent bank control of the pro posal regional reserve system, bank ownership of the new system, redemp tion of notes in gold or lawful money, eight regional reserve banks, and liberal pro visions for farm loans are the principal features of the currency bill prepared by Sen. Owen and his five allies. Despite 200 amendments to the house bill, tho Owen bill closely re semhlcs the measures endorsed by the .administration before currency legis lation was transferred to the senate. The Hitchcock report as submitted to the senate contains detailed refer ence to tho amendments to the house hill, which were adopted by the sen ate banking and currency committee before it split Into two factions. These amendments approved by a majority of the entire committee are re-ranged in their entirety in the Hitchcock draft and a few of them in changed form, in the Owen plan. The house bill proyided( that the national banks should be compelled to enter the proposed regional reserve system at once and that the banks should owne the capital stock. Tho Owen draft provides that the banks shall be compelled to enter the sys tem, but that the public shall be per mitted to subscribe for the Ftock if the banks do not subscribe enough. The secretary of the treasury is to take up the 'balance if any. .The Hitchcock plan provides - that the capital stock first shall be opened to public subscription for the period of sixty days and that tho banks shall be required thereafter to take what ever stock the public does not want.

DOCTOR SAYS TEWE Pennsy Governor Who is to Head National League Has High Hopes for Doing Con structive Work, NFAV YORK, Nov. 22. Here are the six cardinal views of Gov. John K. Tener, of Pennsylvania, who has accepted a four-year term as presi dent' of the National league at a sal ary of $25,000 per annum upon the great national game: 1 Tho game must be kept .abso lutely clean. 2 Baseball needs no doctor. If everything else were as healthy as baseball, physicians would go out of business. 3 Present day players are no bet ter than the old time players, but they give more attention to detail. 4 Mathewson should not be allow ed to quit the game. A man who has his ability to hold up the high stand ard of the game should get a club franchise when his playing days are over. 5 Umpires should rule the fields but at the same time should consider the public. 6 I am proud of having been a professional baesball player. In an interview published here Sat urday, Gov. Tener, who will be the highest paid man in baseball when he is officially chosen to head the Nation al leacue, pointed out what he will try to do when he takes offlco. 'I will not try to assume the role of doctor." said Mr. Tener. a big robust six footer. "It will be my pur pose to see that the game is kept sanitary and avoid the little things which might tend to bring on dis ease. Ka-seball is healthy. "I would like to be a constructive leader. .It is mfy ambition to build. The one great feature of the success of j!ie American league is that Pres. Johnson has taken a personal hand in guiding its destinies to keep it on even keel." AUSTRIA TELLS CZAR FERDINAND TO QUIT BELGRADE. Servia. Nov. 22.

A boycott against eggs now selling for 47 cents a dozen in Chicago, was declared in effect by the Chicago Clean Food club. Until eggs are sold at 32 cents the members of the club will feed their husbands and children mush and prepared cereals for break fast. Every housewife in Chicago was asked to buy no eggs after Saturday until the dealers bring their prices down. Last year the Clean Food club headed by Miss Caroline A. .Bley, forced egg prices down by holding public, sales at prices far beneath the retailer's figures. This year, Mrs. Bley said, their plan to repeat this scheme was foiled by the wholesalers who refused to sell eggs for the sale for less than 32 cents. KRUEGER NAMES MEN .

Victoriano Huerta, dictator of Mexico, now a world-known fijcrure by. the simple virtue of his swaggering defiance to the great United States? Well, first of all, he is almost a full-blooded Indian! This fact Huerta plainly shows in all instances. He fights like an Indian, lives like an Indian and thinks like an Indian. There is not an ounce of refinement in his whole make-up. Treachery and assassination are than they were to the copper natives Batboa met as he tirst cut his way to the Pacific amid showers of poisoned arrows! It was born in him to be so. This is illustrated forcibly by Huerta's treatment of old Gen. Reyes, the very man from whom he got his start! Huerta, it will be recalled, put down for Reyes an obstinate insurrection In Yucatan. Then Huerta lost his Reyes did not forget him. No sooner administration than Reyes took Huerta to Monterey, where he was in com mand. He turned over to Huerta the Indian soldier contracts for huildins roads and laying pavement. Huerta. by breaking the contracts and failing in every way to keep all his engagements, got away with much grait. Also he borrowed money from every one, never paying any of it back. He lived an utterly dissolute life in the tenderloin, In return for Reyes favor, Huerta, the Indian, helped arrange the old general's assassination wnen ne roae February hostilities! t Huerta got back into the good graces of the Diaz retfme when this ad- ministration began to realize its star was some of the less notable generals men whom he did not fear would try to j gratt and said he had an agreement wrest his power from him. One of these was Huerta! And Huerta eventually with Murphy to divide all the bond turned the trick! ing business they obtained. Huerta, of course, really ewes his final prominence to Madero.

He fights like a wild cat. That's Indian. He drinks like a fish. That's the half-breed. He is a most licentious man. That's also the half-breed. Of these things Huerta is not ashamed. Indeed, on the other hand, he is proud of them. He is dissolute, always has been dissolute, and intends to re main dissolute to the end of his days! , Only recently, in a gathering with some fellow-officers at a grill, Huerta, in the spirit of Joking, inquired if anyone remembered the time when, on the field, he seized the wife of some one of his privates and, when the soldier begged for her, he threatened to execute him.
