Delivers Ills Annual Message to the Mex
Citv of Mexico, Sept. 17. Congress
opened Wednesday night- President
Diaz in his messago said the boundary
commission as to the Hlo Grande had
already solved two grave questions as
to the disputed territory. Tho presi
dent referred to the agreement be
tween the two countries allowing
passage of troops in pursuit of
"Kid's' Indians, which will remain
in force until the band is either
exterminated or reduced to obedience.
Regarding the assault on Nogulcs on
August 13 by robbers, ho said the
United States troops had rendered
valuable assistance in the pursuit of
the band, and that instructions had
been given to the Washington legation
to request the extradition or punish
ment of tho guilty parties. The agree
ment as to the Guatemalan boundary,
President Diaz said, had been duly
ratified and tho exchange was made on
May 29. The boundary commission
was engaged in its work, and numer
ous works were in course of erection.
With regard to the Tan-American con
gress held here in August, the presi
dent said it had for its main object
tho discussion of tho Monroe doc
trine. Tho congress was promoted
with best intentions by Ecuador, but
the subject was a delicate and diffi
cult one. Only delegates of the Cen
tral American governments and Ecua
dor and Mexico attended, but the noblo
efforts of Ecuador were not entirely
lost although the carrying out of the
ideas of the -congress had been aban
doned for the present, and tho con
gress had been dissolved. A new
extradition law will shortly be
presented. The general elections
passed off with perfect tranquilty.
The increase in the import duties for
tho last fiscal year over those for the
previous year, which ended June 30, is
33,500,000, and notwithstanding the
rise in the rate of exchange, the
amount received was the larg
est received up to date from
this source. Tho whole receipts
amounted to i ver 550,003,000 and a sur
plus of SO, 000,000 is now deposited in
national banks. The national bank
concession has been modified and a
contract has been made with the Bank
of London and Mexico or an increase
of its capital of 810.000,000 and extend
ing the time of the concession 50 years.

IN THE SADDLeV
rho French Press
of the i:lstcnco
Disbelieves the Story
of a Dynamtto Con-
Pahis, Sept. 17. In response to in
quiries made at the prefecture of police
in regard to the rumor that Alex. Sul
livan, of Chicago; the Irish leader, had
been arrested here, a representative of
the United Associated Presses was in
formed that not only was there
no truth in the report that
Mr. Sullivan hud been taken into cus
tody, but that his arrest had not even
been meditated by the French author
ities. The French public press ridicule the
whole story of the existence of a dyna
mite conspiracy, which they declare is
an English political trick intended to
interfere with the proposed visit to
Franco of the czar.
It is learned upon creditable author
ity that the French cabinet gives bo
little credence to the English police
officials story of a dynamite conspiracy
that It will probablv refuse to grant
tho request for Tynan's extradition.
