that 521 had been saved and "236 had

This makes a total of 757, or Just

When the Carmania reached the vi

found the forward end of the distressed

heavily, where her propellors were
fouled wth tackle in lowering ner six

Many Passengers Drowned.
It was learned by the captain of the
Carmania that only two out of six life
boats had succeeded In getting safely
away from the Volturno. The other
four crowded with passengers and
members of the crew had smashed

their occupants had been thrown into

The declaration was made after 110
members of the chamber of deputies
had been placed In the penitentiary for
signing a petition because of the ar
rest and disappearance of the senator
for Chiapas, Dr. Belisaro Dominguez.
A proclamation was issued just be
fore midnight calling for new elections
or senators and deputies on October 26,
which date is coincident with the pres
idential election.
Congress Dissolved.
The dissolution of the national con
gress was based on the alleged usurpa

the prerogatives of the chief executive
in the matter of senator Dominguez.
The dissolution of the national con

Senator Dominguez, whose attack on
the provisional president in the senate
was the starting point of the row, has
not come to light. He is said to have
prepared for eventualities in advance.
Having determined on his line of con
duct, he made his will and bade his
family and friends good bye.
The unexplained absence from his
seat in the senate and the disappear
ance from his residence at a local hotel
of senator Dominguez,! was what pre
cipitated the heated ' debate at the

warning was conveyed to Huerta by
a unanimous vote of the body that un

of their personal safety they would
hold sessions elsewhere than in the

Senator Dominguez dropped from

At daybreak the Volturpo was still

moderated considerably and a flotilla
of boats gathered round the stern of

Five deputies who signed the resolu

cordon of troops was thrown about the
legislative building and several hun

arrest the 110 members who were in
prisoned. The arrest followed a demand by
president Huerta that the chamber
withdraw the resolution, which carried
the threat that the deputies would
abandon the capital owing to an al
leged lack of guarantees for their per
sonal safety.
Before the hour for the regular open

AN HORN. Texas. Oct. 11. A mis
trial is In prospect in the Orner
case. The case was given to the
jury late Frldav. and Saturdav morn
ing It reported that an agreement had
not been reached and asked the Judge
to discharge the members.
Joseph M. Nealon opened the argu
ment for the state and spoke about 45
minutes. He reviewed the testimony
and closed his argument by sayinc that
"God had implanted in the human
breast as a protection to mankind and
society, a spark which we call 'con
science, and through xt the cuiltv are

said, "from the defendant's own Hns

Explains Alle&ed Confession.
Mr. Nealon was followed bv Chas.
Owen, who made a brief artrnment on
the failure of the state to make out a
case against the defendant, and who
accounted for the alleged confession by
the alleged fact that J. J. Kaster had
stated to the defendant shortly after he
arrived to take the bodv for embalming,
that the defendant would have to stand
trial for the death of the child, and
that she had better be prepared for It,
which statement. Mr. Owen said, had
worked upon the mind of the defendant
to such an extent that it became an
obsession "with her. and thus she mav

The main arguments of both coun

Important witness, was the one who
poisoned Lillie Orner. Mr. Irby said
that from the testimony of Tom De
lany, it was plain that the witness,
Sadie Irwin, had been bought by J. D.
Lee to testify against Mrs. Orner. De
lany had testified that Mrs. Irwin told
him she was to get a large portion

counsel for disrespect to these women,
a burst of applause began in the body
of the court room, as a demonstration
of the approval of the audience of Mr.
Brldgers's sentiments, with reference
to the treatment of the state's woman
witnesses. Judge Jackson warned the
audience that any further hand clap
ping would be punished severely by
the court
Jury Not Yet Agreed.
Mr. Brldgers told the jury that many
of the state's witnesses were also
mothers, and that the mothe'r argument
also applied to them, so far as any feel
ings of sentiment and respect went. In
referring to Tom Delany, the only wit
nesses offered by the defence, Mr.
Bridgers asked the jury if they would
lend a horse to Tom on his face, and
that If they wouldn't they then ought
not to believe him.
Promptly at 5:30. the jury retired,
and by noon Saturday, they had no re
port to make except to urgently re
quest the court to discharge them as
tne chances for a, verdict were hopeless.
It Is understood that the majority of
the jury Is strongly for acquittal. The
jury will probably not be discharged
before Monday or Tuesday, unless a
verdict Is reached.
Should this, the fifth trial of Mrs.
Orner. result In a hung jury. It is said
that Mrs. Orner will be brought to El
Paso and tried for insanity, under the
new law.
The witnesses In the Orner case have
been put to great hardships, and Incon
veniences traveling over the country at
the various trials. A witness is paid
a dollar a day by the state and at no
place can a witness lire on less than
12.50 or S3 a day, so each trial is costly
to the witnesses.

ALBUQUERQUE, N. M.f Oct. 11. Jobbers of New Mexico are seeking a com
petitive rate with the jobbers of El Paso, the state corporation commission,
taking up an interstate rate case on November 17. Hearings will be held
at Santa Fc and Roswell. 0 L. Owen, of Clovis, N. M, met with the New Mexico
Jobbers' association during fair week here and secured data to present to the
commissioner. Hugh H. "Williams, of Deming, is chairman of the commission and
M. S. Groves, of Carlsbad, is the other member.
In discussing the case, commissioner Owen said:
"We are trying in the state rate case to get relief from the El Paso rate
basis that the New Mesico jobber may be on an equal basis with El Paso. Tho
tariff is 25 percent less to El Paso than to any New Mexico point. We intend to
bring into the case evidence that will make New Mexico points, such as Albu
querque, Deming, and Las Vegas, on a competitive basis with El Paso. Under
existing rates it is possible for El Paso jobbers to local rate goods into New
Mexico at a lower rate than we can get goods, making it possible for the dealers
to sell cheaper than the Albuquerque jobber can sell right here.
"We have brought a friendly suit against the railroads operating in Nev4
Mexico to bring about an equal or better rate than El Paso now enjoys."
