Appropriation of $50,000 to inaugurate Such a Movement in State of Louisiana, , to Replace the Sugar Growing Which May Suffer Under the New Tax. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Washington, Nov. 12. Appropria tion of 150,000 for federal live stock experiments in Iouislana will be ask ed of congress by Secretary Houston to -help Louisiana sugar planters, who fear their industry will be ruined by removal of the tariff on, sugar. Secretary Houston also has written to Dr. W. R. Dodson,,in charge of the Louisiana state experiment station, and to Senator Ransdell and Repre sentative .Brousaard, who especially are interested in the sugar situation, telling them . the state must coopera ate if the experiments are to be suc cessful The secretary believes cattle and hog raising can be conducted profit ably to take the place, either in whole or part, of sugar growing. ' and that also in the cotton section of Louisiana cattle might be raised so that planters would not be dependent on the cotton crop alone, which this year has been badly injured by the boll weevil and unfavorable weather Secretary Hous ton asks the state to set apart 500 acres on , which to conduct the live stock experiments. He will ask that part of the federal appropriation be made available immediately. ; Although not yet ready to reeora-! mend a sudden radical change . from sugar to live stock, the aecretairy strongly Inclines to the belief, that experiments will prove that such a change , will be the salvation of the Louisiana, farmers." - He bases his opinion, he says, largely on a report make to' him by" "W.

LIMIT AUTHORITY SECRETARY OF WAR BT ASSOCIATED, PRESS. Washington, Nov. 12. The secretary of war has no authority to make rec ommendations designed to dictate the number of officers and men of the militia necessary to constitute a rifle camp of Instruction, whose officers and men shall be paid under the militia act. Comptroller of the treasury Dow ney, financial arbiter of such questions decided so todayi ' - " . The case arose when . the auditor of the war department held that a re cent encampment of Arizona militia at which forty-four officers and men J representing six - companies were present was not - an encampment rec ognized by the . war department. He cited regulations of ' the secretary of war which declare that a legal en campment must Include two officers and twenty men from each militia company. The comptroller announced that con gress alone possessed authority to make such a limitation upon the mili tia act. ' been suggested that the interest rate be raised to 5 at which it is believed the bonds con hi be sold easily. It is I generally believed that the bonds as provided in the administration plan would not bring, under present finan cial oonditloos, more than 96 and pos sibly 97. In this respect Oklahoma's failure to float about $3,000,000 worth of 4 1-2 per cent bonds at par re cently is pointed out. Whatever is decided upon the prop er issue, however, it seems certain that the convention will provide ready funds by January through the medium of the short term certificates to be sold should the proposed bond issue fa.ll. In an effort to clear the situation as quickly 83 possible, the - committee is holding long sessions each day and night. S EC'Y.

SUFFRAGISTS OilTHBODY The Organization Will Be Known as Southern States Women's Suffrage Con ference, and It is Planned to Arrange for Annual Session. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. New Orleans, Nov. 12. Women suf fragists who met here as the Louis iana Suffrage Association with sev eral representatives from other south ern states,, adjourned this afternoon af ter organizing a southern conference of suffragists and a new state body. Miss Kate M. Gordon of New Orleans was elected president of the body em bracing the southern states. This organization will be known as the Southern States Woman's Suffrage Conference and will hold annual meetings. The chief contention in forming this organization was whether it would stand for state rights and whether the words "states rights" should be embodied in the name. It was deemed expedient to eliminate these words but it is understood this organization will stand for trying to gain votes for women through amend ments to state constitutions . rather than a federal measure as advocated by the National Women's Suffrage or ganization. Other officers of the conference elected this afternoon are: Miss Laura Clay of Kentucky, vice president at large; Mrs. John B.

Sec retary Bryan today issued this state ment: "The ambassadorship to Russia is vacant and the president has for some time been desirous of filling It by an appointment which would be entirely worthy of the great dignity and Im portance of the' post. Knowing Mr. Pindell personally, his character, his ability, his exceptional fitness for the duties of such a. place, he offered him the appointment. Mr. Pindell did not seek the appointment. It was tendered him without any solicitation on his part. In response to the offer he Glad to Get Away From the Revolution-Torn Countrv. SAY LITTLE DANGER IN THE LARGE CITIES Mexicans, as a Rule, Respect Americans, Excepting in the Interior No One Knows What is Likely to Happen and the Party Boarded Steamer Alexan drian and Came to Pen sacola. Eleven American citizens, all refu gees from Mexico, some of whom had been there for the past four years, reached Pensacola yesterday aboard Che steamship Alexandrian, from Tam pico and Vera Cruz, and left the city last night for a number of points in Che United States. Not one of them thought of returning to the country where they acknowledged turbulenc reigned supreme, but they said that Americans in the cities were safe. In fact, said one of the gentlemen, Mex icans looked up to and had the high est respect for American , or United States citizens, within the cities. "Out side of the cities, however," he con tinued, 'nhings are very shaky, and none are too safe out there. Nobody knows what is going to happen and not a great many of them even know who the president is. We did not know, could not make a safe guess, and that is the way with a great many people of Mexico they are not sure just who is their president. I bought a paper myself to find out on my ar rival here. No, I cannot say that we, or at least, I, am running from im pending danger. I was in the City of Mexico itself, and just took this op portunity of coming to the states." MEMBERS IN PARTY. Those, in. the party were: J. C. Moulton of New Orleans, H. H. Peo ples, Mrs.- L. G.: Chrfcstle, Mrs. M. S. .Denocken and child. Mrs. L. Pool, all or whom win go to rvew Orleans from here-but their homes are 1b various parts of the country tn Texas. Cali fornia, Montana and Nevada. Others of the party were Mr. L. Christie and Mrs. Christie. Peter Navarro. J. Ol- sen and J. Jolly. These will go to New York, but may spend a few days in Pensacola. They boarded the steam ship at Vera Cruz. Purser L. L. Jones of tne Alexan drian came ashore with the party. reaching the city dock at 6 o'clock. Thence they went direct to -the office of Immigration Agent Leary, where the 'proper entrance papers to this country were made out. Dr. S. R. M. Kennedy was on hand and made an examination of them in his capacity as surgeon for the marine hospital service. SOME MEXICAN CONDITIONS. "There is one thing that can be said of the country," remarked on of the gentlemen, "and that is if an in vading party goes into the interior of the country from the United States, say, to Mexico City from Vera Cruz, some strenuous marching will have to be done. It Is true there are two lines of railroad from Vera Cruz to Mexico City, but it Is possible there wouki b nothing much left of the railroad should an invasion by a foreign na tion be attempted. That would fore a march of two hundred miles, and there is where the hard part of it would come-in. Soldiers would, have to hike over a mountainous section, one height of eleven thousand feet being in the way. That and other tilings which would interfere with th movement of a column, would not make it an easy matter for the capi tal to be reached." "How do the people feel toward thl country; are they anyway friendly?" he was asked. "In the cities, citizens of the United States are, just now. even highly re spected, and are looked up to. Not so in the outlying districts, I should Judge." "Which is the more favored side of the contending forces in Mexico now?" "It is a sure thing that the rebels could enlist the greater part of the fighting strength of the country, and men would more readily side with the rebel army. In fact, should it come to a showdown, it is my opinion that regular soldiers would not hesi tate to go with the rebels." Tn case this country should mw on Mexico, what length of time, do you think, the capital could hold out, in the way of supplies?" (Continued on Page Eight) frankly stated that he would bo glad to serve the administration in any way in which the president thought he could serve it successfully, but that he did not feel that he could conscien tiously obligate himself to serve ho full ordinary 'term of a foreign ap pointment, because he did not feel cat he could leave his business so long. The president asked him to accept it for as long a time as he could stay, and he consented. "This is a full statement of a mat ter which has been grossly misrepre sented. The president will not allow malicious representations to interfere with his right to nominate to the sen ate the best qualified men within his choice for conspicuous and responsible positions." Mr. Bryan, in making public hi statement, declared the Pindell ind-. dent closed.
