HUERTA NOW PROMISES A REFORM PROGRAM Mexican Provisional President Wants Friendly Relations Witli the United States. Mexico City, May 31.—Adolfo de la Huerta, 39, president of Mexico, is suf fering severely from abdominal pains, which indicate an operation for ap pendicitis will be an early item on his program, He looks about 29, has a large round head, thick neck, heavy should ers, large, muscular, brown hands and deep, studious black eyes. He has a decided leaning to Socialistic views of government nui social affair? tnd :s well educated and widely traveled. Just what he can accompli-M In the briefly expressed program his illness permitted him to outline is a matter of conjecture, because, looming over and behold him in the master hand of Obregon, who will do all the ruling ^ down here for some time to come. “I want to see Mexico a dry country” he said, ‘but I realize that it is a long, difficult jub to convince the people that it is the best thing for them. And before the September elections and the December inauguration I hardly expect to achieve much in that line. Still, I •hope to make a start that my succes sor will continue. Friendly With IT. S. “Friendly relations with America are esential to progress and devel opment. of any country, and it is a car dinal principle of my platform to re store those relations. Foreign capital, particularly Amer ican, will be welcomed, respected and protected henceforth. Mexico of course must derive her just share of all bene fits. but the days have passed for gov ernmental interference in difficulties with outside investors. “During the time 1 am in the presi dential chair l shall keep my hands off the oil problems, letting a liberal interpretation of the present laws prevail. The Congress and preident to be elected this fall can do as they I please about the oil situation. “I am going to try to rectify all er rors of the past administration and put Mexico on its feet. There is so much to be done that it is appalling, but I hope to surround myself with capable assistants aud plunge into the | task. Restoration of railroads to their former standards, encouragement of foreign and native manufacturers, in crease in live took and agricultural de velopment, furtherance of educational facilities—these are only a handful out of a barrel of vital problems that we are facing. “As for social conditions, I shall not interfere with the people’s pleasures, such as bull fighting, although I hope the time will come when such things shall disappear from Mexico. There is o much I could say as to what 1 hope to do, but I shall let my actions notify the world that a new order ex ists in Mexico.” -o 3i., i). \ a. shopmen wALkorr V Delay in Fay is Said to Have Uecit Cause of Walkout. Nashville, June 1,—All the shopmen employed by the Memphis, Dallas and Gulf Railroad Company in this city walked out at noon today. They allege the failure of the com pany to pay them their wages as the cause for the strike. Railroad officials state that they ad vised the men that their pay checks would be forthcoming within a few days, but they demanded their money by one o clock Tuesday, and when that hour arrived they quit work. The strike will seriously hamper the operation of the road. -o THROAT (TT, REELS INTO HOTEL South Carolinian Attempts to End life in Texarkana Hotel. Texarkana, June 1.—Guests in the lobby at the Southern hotel were hor rified tonight when a man with his throat cut and blood gushing from the would came reeling down the stair way and fell with a groan in front of tlie clerk’s desk. He wms rushed to a hospital where it was said that he probably would die. The man was a stranger here. He was about 40, and plainly dressed. He registered at the hotel about 20 minut es before • the tragedy. Examination of his room indicated that he had slashed his throat with a razor while standing in front of a large mirror. He registered as J. H, Sprouse, of Laurens, S. C. In his pockets were found three bank deposit slips for small amounts, one being from a bank at Cotton Plant, Texas., and two from Post City, Tex., all dated about six weeks ago.

Chicago, June 1,—Miss Mary Gar rett Hay, who has called a caucus of the 26 women iRepublican delegates and approximately 125 alternates for Sunday today conferred with Cap tain Victor Heintz, who has been ap pointed by Chairman Will H. Hays to assist the women in drafting plans they will present to the Republican convention for the participation of suffragists in control of the party. Captain Heintz, central regional di rector of the National Committee, will attend Sunday’s caucus and endeavor to obtain acompromise between the conservative and more radical groups of the women. Women leaders here are discussing two planks they hope to see put in the platform. One relates to suffrage and the other to prohibition. Several national committeemen are opposed to considering either. They say that Congress has submitted both amend ments to the states for ratification and one has already been ratified with action on the other expected shortly. Demands by some women for 50^50 recognition in party control is meet ing opposition from the men. One member of the National Committee said today that the proposed dual con trol, with a man and woman chairman, each with separate committees in each state, would cause permanent div ision between the men and women vot ers. ' It would be as logical, he added, to elect two presidents, one for the men and one for the women. What ever plan is agreed on, he said, should provide for assimilation of the women voters in the existing party machinery, possibly through the appointmei\ "'of women vice chairmen of the state national committees. —--o--— SWEET POTATO STORAGE. [National Crop Improvement Service.! A community which can support a good public storage house and a live marketing association with good trans portation, is highly desirable to any man who wants to go into the sweet potato business. However, there are many growers who have learned the game who know how to manage suc cessfully their own storage house and as a rule these farmers are selling their crop to good advantage and they have little spoilage. But it is better to be identified with some Joeal organ ization so that advantage may lie taken of marketing in car lots on markets which can be maintained by large ship ments of the same variety, graded and packed according to the standard of these markets which are not the same North, South, East and West.
