Mexico's Condition Worse.
"We regret to say that we cannot

For many reasons Mexico appears to us
to be in a more precarious state than
she was a year ago. We cannot see

"Let us look the situation squarely

"At the end of 1913 Mexico has as

"Meanwhile Mexico's private and na

"Washington. D. C, Jan. 3. Senor

It was whispered, to find if there is
any truth in the recent reports of in

Declares Curse of the Time
Is Appealing to Ignorance
and Prejudice.
Washington, D. C Jan. 3.
Senator Joseph W. BaileyVtoday
sent his resignation as senator
from Texas to senator Gallinger
to take effect Immediately. R.
M. Johnston, of Houston, is now
in the- city and senator- Bailey
said that he would be appointed
by the governor to succeed him,
with the expectation that the
legislature, when it meets,
would elect him to fill out the
unexpired term to March 4.
Bailey's Last Speccli.
In concluding his attack upon the
initiative, referendum and recall. In hfs
farewell address to the senate Wed
nesday, the senator declared: ,
"The curse of the time is that we
are appealing to ignorance and preju
dice. "We are teaching the rich that the
poor are their natural enemies and
teaching the poor that the rich are
their natural oppressors."
He added that he did not believe "all
the rich were rascals nor that all the
poor were patriots," but contended that
"the percentage runs about the same in
both classes."
"Let us have an end of this class
war." he said. "Let us re-establish in
the minds of the people the belief that
the men they have trusted have not be
trayed them."
"Let -the People Ruler'
Senator Bailey said that the cry to
day of the new movement was "let the
people rule." He denounced the move
as false. "There are the southern
states. There is not p. southern state

"The proposal to change the form of
government," said senator Bailey, "is
oaseci on tne principle that tne sen
ators and representatives of the gov
ernment are dishonest and cannot be
trusted: this is not true."
Anhnrst Defends Hearst.
Following senator-Bailey's challenge
to him. senator Henry F. Ashurst. of
Arizona, took the floor in his own
right, and in the course of his defence
or direct government, he paid a tribute
to William R. Hearst, who senator
Bailey assailed: said Hearst was a loyal

The Lawn Compiled.
Early in the first session of the state

to have the statutes revised to conform
with the constitution. Governor Hunt
appointed Sam L. Pattee, a Tucson at

cluded his task and will be ready to
make his report by the time the legis

If the legislators are called on to go
through the entire code they can
change the law3 to suit themselves.
Pattee's revisions are merely by way
of guidance, to expedite the work.

Washington, D. C Jan. 3. The. south
Atlantic states today are In the grip
of a terrific wind and rain storm, which
worked havoc with shipping and cut
off the cities of Norfolk and Newport
News. All land wires leading out of
the cities are destroyed. Before the
last wire went down, a telegraph opera
tor in Newport News remarked that the
gale was so terrific that the waters of
the river were surging up into the
lower parts of the city with the vio
lence of a small tidal wave.
The navy wireless sparked out un
answered calls to ships of the Atlantic
fleet gathering in Hampton Roads.
Great anxiety was felt for the safety
of torpedo boats in the narrow sea
way. '
Incomplete reports coming while the
storm was at its height were that
many small craft had been sunk. The
loss of life, if any, is notr known.
In this city the gale whipped down
signs and trees. Telegraph and tele
phone wires are demoralized as far

Norfolk, Va.. Jan. 3. A 60-mile gale,

with loss of life.
The terrific gales swept the waters
of the James river up into the lower
portions of the city of Newport News,
inundating streets, warehouses and
driving the people to the elevations.
Ferry service across the river to New
