HID MOTHER EOMIJMGE President of Women's fed eration Declares Ques tion Out of Order. San Francisco, Calif- July 0 Equal suffrage was smothered as an issue in the General Federation of Women's clubs yesterdav anji cannot come up for gen eral discussion again until the nest bi ennial in 1914. An unexpected motion by Mrs. Charles Farwell Edson, of Los Angeles, that the convention will go on record for suffrage was offered from the floor and ruled out of order by the chair. Mrs. Philip X. Moore, of St. Louis, the retiring president, ruled that all mo tions must come before the convention from the committee on resolutions. She explained that the purpose of the federa- UAREZ has again assumed military airs. The old border town has awak- -..j ,. ..... lothnrtfv to tiica iiujr lis miusuuunci w o - welcome the rebel army on Its retreat from Bachimba. There are no uni forms and no marching troops, as when the federal army marched Into the old town across the river preced ing the historic battle of Juarez. But the soldiers of Oroco are as much the seasoned campaigners as those of Navarro, who shuffled through the streets in their slate covered fatigue uniforms a little more than a year ago. Tall hatted and dressed in rags, the revolutionary army shows the wear and tear or the strenuous cam paigix which it has been conducting against the advance of the federals in the south. Railway Station the Center. The Mexican Central station is again the point of interest for the populace of Juarea, for it is there that the troop trains are unloaded and tnere the soldiers, their wives and families, are huddled in little groups wItln for orders to move toward tasas Grandes. The old station was com pletely surrounded Saturday by the women and children, bags and bag gage of the rebel soldiers. Along the west front of the station, sitting in the glaring summer sun the racgedly clad women and dirty-faced children crouched among the equally black pots and pans, chattering In sort Spanish or caressing the scurvy dogs which they have lugged from place to place during the campaign in the field. In the rear of the station an officers mess was established by two dis heveled Mexican camp followers, in a corner of the patio the women had set up their rires and were industri ously cooking supper for a half dozen semi-uniformed officers who sat around on the trunks, chests and bales which had been unloaded from the troop trains. The women squatted over the miniature ranges made ot three bricks piled on as many sides stirred the coffee, concocted the -Mexican dishes and patted tortillas just as thev have been doing In the field since they marched south with their men to the war. tion was to educate women in all things looking to their betterment, and that the present sense of the comittee was that Mrs. Edson's resolution would tend to make that wcrk more difficult and that she was ill-advised. Protest Against Ruling. Mrs. Washburn, of Washington, pro tested spiritedly against the decision of the chair. , The ballot, she said, would be a tool in the hands of women to shape legisla tion for their own help and their chil dren's, by the weight it would carry with the state legislatures-." Resolutions Passed. The convention adopted a number of resolutions, among them a vote of ap preciation to president Taft for his ap pointment of Miss Julia Lathrop to the head of the children's bureau. Others were: Endorsements of the good roads move ment for a national highway; conserva tion of national resources and preven tion of curtailment of forest reserves; bills for betterment of defective chil dren; bills for betterment of immigrant men and women; plan to have women There is a noticeable absence of am munition belts on the men. Many of them have only a few cartridges stuck in their belts and the greater num ber have no belts at all. Nethefn.f they as anxious to carry the heavj rifles ns they were before they left for the front and when the senoritas were looking on. Spoils of " are evident everywhere. Beautifully bred Mexican horses bearing the Jerrazas brand, with variagated saddle blank ets and high pommeled saddles are ridden by sandal ""LS" dressed Mexican rebels. Expensive trousers and tight fltt ng coats are much in evidence. Silk scarfs from some novelty stores in the Interior are carelessly tied around the sunburned necks of the clanking cavalrymen, while a few of the WMc j pensive Panama hats as their share in the looting.

It is believed that they will be cut at almost any time. One more train of rebel soldiers Is ex pected to arrive in Juarez Saturday night, about 8 oclock. There is a scarcity of artillery on the arriving trains. So far there has been none in evidence. However, in the Juarez garrison there havo been several machine guns and two mortars for some time. Orozco Looked For. Gen Pascual Orozco today was ex pected at the new rebel capital Juarez to launch further plans for a continuation of the revolution. There have been all sorts of reports that he had arrived, but he Is not yet In Juarez. A Washington dispatch says Orozco arrived In Juarez today, according to reports received at the war depart ment today from Col. E. Z. Steever, acting commander of the department of Texas. Consul Edwards at Juarez, the dispatch adds, says that while there are reports of many rebels on their way to Juarez, few have arrived. Though the plan of guerilla warfare originally called for a division of the rebel forces Into detachments of 150 men. Gen. Orozco now has ordered that each column shall contain not less than Photo Tak en From World's Highest Building 500 able men to dominate the region assigned to each column. Rebel Advance Into Sonora. Already the rebel invasion of the state of Spnora has begun. Nearly 1000 men under Gen. Emlllo Campa are marching from Casas Grandes on the Mexico North "Western railroad, toward Bavlspe, one of the mountain passes leading Into Sonora. En route from Agua Prieta. opposite Douglas, Ariz., to try to check them Is the federal column of 900 men under Gen. Sanjines. who will make his head quarters at Colonla Morelos, near the Sonora state line and 50 miles south of the International boundary. tluerta Sfcars Chihuahua. Gen. Huerta has established head quarters at Horcasltas. 25 miles south of the city of Chihuahua. Railroad and telegraph communica tion with the city of Chihuahua prob ably will be restored in five days, from the south. Nearly 2000 rebel troops reached Juarez Friday en route to Casas Grandes. and the region along the Mexico North "Western railroad, south west of the border. Refnjjees BrinR "Women.

Associated Press Corrects False State ment Telegraphed to "Washington From Kl Paso Yesterdny. The Associated Press staff corre spondent, who is in El Paso directing the work of the correspondents in the field with the Mexican troops, tele graphed the following last night to that news association: CoL Pascual Orozco. sr., father of the rebel chief, denied today the report from "Washington that the rebels would direct artillery fire across the interna tional line to destroy the plant of an El Paso electric light company. The story has been In circulation here for nearly a month, but officials here rep resenting the department of justice, the state and war departments, after having investigated It. stated they did not believe any such contingency probable. Governor Grutierrez. rebel executive of the state of Chihuahua, said of the report: "The story is absurd. The rebels in tend to do nothing- to provoke inter national complications of any kiml. Our fight is against the Madero govern ment and no other." Notwithstanding governor Colquitt's report to Washington that he would send the Texas militia to El Paso, army officers here regard the situation as gj mnHUPSjjLfcjjfiAT ' V 9fMfWffTjfa6BIWie5slBiCiiUfiHBBWBSHHfffflfS peaceful and believe no more troops are needed. It Is generally accepted among those close to rebel headquarters that no fighting is likely at Juarez at any time. Mexican government officials here also say there is no cause for alarm as they do not intend to dislodge the rebels from Juarez, preferring to quash the revolution by holding forces to defeat the rebel forces at the en trance to the state of Sonora. Scores of rebel soldiers deserted to American soil during the day. They declare dissension between Gen. Orozco and his staff and lack of money or food Is rapidly decimating the rebel army.

' Scientists Entirely Stumped by tne Revelation That Many Creatures LIVE and BREED in Virulent POISONS Some New Discoveries About Deadly By Prof. JAMES ELLIOTT WINSLOW WITHIN the past few weeks the world ot science has come face to face with an entirely new set of facts "which are beyond its power to explain. Somo of the most instantaneously deadly poisons known to chemistry have been found quite harmless to certain forms of life. There have recently been noticed several instances where certain insects have shown wonderful resistance when placed in situa tions In which, other varieties would instantly die. 3 The law of special adaptation does not solve the problem, for special adaptation is only acquired through long periods of time and the breeding of gen eration after generation of creatures. Thus In the case of the worm that lives in the California crude petroleum, for Instance, it is known, of course, that petroleum was discovered in California only a few years ago and there bas been no opportunity for tho law of adaptation or acquired immunity to become effective. Science is stumped; what it has Just dis covered it cannot explain "upon any rational hypo thesis. If a chemist were asked to name the most power ful poison he would Instantly say hydrocyanic acid (pmsslc add) ; yet there exists a family of small but terflies, or moths, scientifically known as the ZjgaenL dae, which are not affected by this powerful poison. They are the only living animals which are immune to this deadly gas. It will be remembered that this Is the poison which Richeson used to murder his sweetheart, Avis Linnell, by giving her a capsule of potassium cyanide. "When the capsule dissolved in the stomach the gastric juice acted on the potassium cyanide and formed free prussic acid. Dr. Shulze, of the University of Berlin, has recently made two observations which appear to snow almost miraculous powers of resistance. (See Zoologischer Anzeiger, vol. 39, page 199.) a student at the Uni versity of Berlin wished to Btudy some Hottentot heads, and had the head3 sent to him from German South Africa. The heads were placed In tin boxes covered with a solution of formaldehyde to preserve them and the boxes sealed. When these boxes were opened in Berlin a great number of tiny flies flew out, which were identified as the ordinary "fruit fly" which collects about over-ripe bananas and grapes (scientific Drosophila rulrostrtata) . What was even more re markable was the fact that great numbers ot tho larvae were found swimming about in the preserving fluid. Fearing that the heads would be Injured by the larvae, a saturated solution of formaldehyde was poured over tho heads, but the larvae were uninjured. Formaldehyde Is one of the most Irritant and pois onous gases known. It Is very largely used to dis infect rooms where there have been contagious dia- I Poioni "&om flies can thrive even on prusatc mcia." eases, and a 3 per cent solution is used by most museums as a preserving solution in which to keep their specimens. Dr. Wiley found that even small traces which were used by unscrupulous milkmen to keep the milk from souring produced very harmful effects This nnn "frnlt flv" is the onlv known ani mal which can withstand the .effects ot formaldehyde. Dr. Shulze also had occasion to place some larvae, of the ordinary "blow fly" (.Zlusca womitora) In a 2 per cent solution of chromic acid. No animal or piantj was known which, could withstand the action of this. acid, but the larvae not only lived at the bottom ol the solution, but they pupated and produced living . flies. ti The occurrence of plants wblch live upon insects which they capture Is well known. Some of these plants have appendages which act as traps. The lid of the trap lies open, but when an insect walks Inside of tho danger line the lid snaps shut and the plant digests Its prey. When the digestion is complete tho trap opens for another victim. There aro five species of flies however (3 cullclds, 1 phorlds, and 1 an thomylid). -which lay their eggs in the digesUve fluid of the pitcher plants, and the larvae live here, feed ing on tho luckless Insects which are captured. These larvae aro not digested because they secrete a fluid which renders the digestive fluid harmless to thorn. The tape worms and other intestinal worms have th0j same means of stopping digesUve processes. It is a common report that the Dead Sea in Pales-, tine and the Great Salt Lake in Utah, contain no'j animal Hfo because of the great amount of dissolved i matter in the water. But in Southern California there is a lake Owen's lake, which contains a3 much dis-, solved material as either the Dead Sea or Great Salt T.aire and in addition to this the salt is largely sal soda' (washing soda). Each gallon ot this water con-4 tains nearly a pound and a half of washing soda, and j large quantities ot the water are evaporated in order! to obtain this soda. Contrary to all expectations this k contains an abundance of animal life, but all of one sort, namely, the larvae ot a fly .Epnyara tuxs- Una). These larvae occur in countless numbers, M that after a' storm they are washed ashore by tha busheL The Indians collect them after storms and also by means of dragging screens, or closely woven baskets, through the water, and dry them In the sun. They are then ground and baked into a bread which the Indians call "Koo-cha-hee.'' ;" It has lately been noticed (Science voL 35, p. lSS)',, , that great numbers of a tiny larvae were to he found in the crude petroleum of California, after it had been exposed to the open air for a time. These larvae are j those of the "oil fly" (Paitopo petroll). The adults ap- -parently deposit the eggs outside of the oil and ths , maggots enter the oil a3 soon as they hatch. Tha -probability is, inasmuch as they feed upon dead flies and other insects, that they found tho oil to be a certain source of abundant food material, furnished' by other insects which had been killed by falling into the oil. Tho resistant powers ot theso larvao is at -, most past belief, for they live for more than twenty, -J four hours when placed in pare gasoline or kerosene Perhaps Science will soon furnish us with more oS.ij these instances of the ability to overcome almost- euro death. Tho entire question arouses such a grea field for speculation that wo are almost bewildered The query at once arises "how did these special" groups develop, and by what power are they immune?" Take, for instace, the "oil fly." Until recently it was unknown and certainly could not have always lived la tho oil. for the oil fields of California are of a very; " recent date. Wo havo therefore, possibly, a welX known fly adapting Itself to the new conditions, andi" by means of this change, so changing its nature so as to appear to be a new variety. As to why It is in mune as yet there is no answer.
