Mexico City.—Victoriano Huerta, so
salled Provisional President, but self
eonstituted dictator of Mexico since

to pressure and resigned. His resigna-
Uou was presented to the Congress
through the Department of Foreign
Relations and was accepted by the
Senate and Chamber of Deputies by a
wte of 121 to 17.
In the official announcement it was
grandiloquently stated that in resign
ing Huerta was actuated by the high
est motives of patrotism and in com
pliance with his supreme duty to his
sou n try.
When Huerta’s resignation was read
in the Chamber of Deputies it was
greeted with cries of "Viva Huerta!”
it was then referred to the joint com
mittees of Bobernacion. After brief
consideration the committee reported,
accepting the resignation in the fol
lowing terms:
“Article I—We1 —We accept the resigna
tion presented by Gen. Victoriano
Huerta as President of the Mexican
United States.
“Article 2 —We call Licentiate Fran
cisco Carbajal, minister of foreign rela
tions, to assume the presidency.”
A ballot was taken and the joint
session approved the report.
At 7:30 Francisco Carbajal, Huerta’s
foreign minister, took the oath as Pro
visional President, before the as
sembled Deputies and Senators of the
Congress.
The new executive, escorted by the
presidential guards, went immediately
to the national palace. He was cheer-
Mtl by the people.

By Him.
Mexico City.—The text of General
■Huerta’s resignation follows:
“Deputies and senators: Public
necessity, admitted by the Chamber of
Deputies, by the Senate and the Su
preme Court, called me to tho supreme
magistracy of the Republic. Later,
when in this same hall I had the honor
at addressing you in compliance with
She constitutional precept, I promised
at all costs to bring about peace.
“Seventeen months have passed and
jftt that brief period of time I have
Jormed an army with which to carry
aut that solemn promise. You all
totw the immense difficulties which
gay government has encountered,
owing to a scarcity of funds, as well
to the manifest and decided protec

tinent has afforded to the rebels —so
anuch so that when the revolution had
■been broken up, seeing that its chief
Scatters were and continued to be di
wiktei, the power in question sought a
pretext to Intervene directly in the

"Success was had, as you know, in
adjusting honorably through our dele

continued, with the support of whom

“Yet, alter the highly patriotic work

RELIEF IN WASHINGTON.
I
i Huerta Resignation Deemed First
, Practical Step To Peace.
1 Washington, D. C. —News of General
' Huerta’s resignation as Provisional
' President of Mexico was hailed by offl
’ cial Washington as the first practical
1 step toward a quick solution of the
F Mexican problem.
Constitutionalists, diplomats and offl
-1 cials of the United States Government
- did not conceal their satisfaction over
! the fact that General Huerta at last
' had voluntarily eliminated himself
from the situation and pointed the way
1 to an era of peace in his country.
Although the Constitutionalists have
’ declared they would not, recognize
1 Francisco Carbajal as Provisional
1 President any more than they did his
predecessor, and the United States
- Government likewise will refuse to
1 recognize him, the understanding here
’ is that the new Executive will hold
' office only until satisfactory arrange
- ment can be made for the entry of
s General Carranza, the Constitution

York, New Haven and Hartford Rail
road Company approximately $102,-
000,000 alleged to have been illegally

New Haven Company is entitled to

they later be applied to the payment
of any court decree that might be
issued.

FORJUFFRAGE
Will Support Proposed Nebras
kan Amendment.
VOTE IS MOTHER’S RIGHTS
Secretary Declares Woman Has Proved
Herself Equal To Every Re
sponsibility Imposed On
Her.
Washington, D. C. —Secretary Bryan,
in a formal statement, came out for
■ woman suffrage. He declared that he
would ask no political right for him
-1 self that he was not willing to grant,
"his wife, and announced his intention
of supporting the proposed State con
. stitutional amendment extending the
franchise to women to be voted upon
■ in Nebraska next November.
Woman, Mr. Bryan said, had proved
herself equal to every responsibility
imposed upon her, and would not fail
society In this emergency. Above all
other arguments in favor of giving her
the ballot he placed the right of the
mother to a voice in the molding of
! the environment of her children. “The
mother,” the Secretary said, “can
justly claim the right to employ every
| weapon which"can be made effective
’ in the protection of those whose inter
ests she guards, and the ballot will
' put within her reach all of the in
. strumentalities of government, includ
; ing the police power.”
i
[ Will Vote For Amendment.
I The statement, in part, follows:
, “The voters of Nebraska will, at the
etectlon next November, adopt or re
ject a proposed amendment extending
1 suffrage to woman on equal terms with
men. As a citizen of that State, it
. will be my duty to participate in the
decision to be rendered at the polls.
I have delayed expressing an opinion
■ on this subject, partly because I have
1 been seeking information, and partly
' because my time has been occupied
with national questions upon which the
• entire country was acting, but now
1 that the issue is presented in my State
• I take my position. I shall support the
' amendment. I shall ask no political
: rights for myself that I am not willing
' to grant to my wife.
• “As man and woman are co-tenants
1 of the earth and must work out their
destiny together, the presumption is on
' the side of equality of treatment in all
' that pertains to their joint life and
its opportunities. The burden of proof
is on those who claim for one an ad
vantage over the other in determining
the conditions under which both shall
• live. This claim has not been estab
lished in the matter of suffrage. On
the contrary, the objections raised to
! woman suffrage appear to me to be in
valid, w&ile the arguments advanced
1 in support of the proposition are, in
| my judgment, convincing.”

LOOKS OMINOUS
FOR RAILROADS
New Haven Report May Fore
shadow Adverse Decision.
ONLY MINOR ADVANCES
i Commission Expected To Allow Only
Minor Advances and Urge
Conservation Of
Revenues.
Washington, D. C. —From sources as
' close to the Interstate Commerce Com
! mission as any that have talked at all
‘ about the 5 per cent, rate case comes
the Information that the new Haven
1 report, came when it did and in the
' form it did to prepare the railroads
1 and the country for what will be, In
1 part, a denial of the advance asked for
by the Eastern carriers.
This information, though, of course,
unofficial, is sufficiently authoritative
1 that the interests most concerned in
‘ the forthcoming rate decision are
about convinced that the commission’s
! action will he on the whole adverse to
' the carriers and that the results of
the New Haven investigation will be
\ cited as a compelling reason why con
servation of revenue instead of an in
crease of income should be the remedy
L applied for the present financial con
dition of the railroads.
In other words, the conviction is
strong in Washington that the com
mission means to allow only minor ad
vances in the prevailing rates and in
tends to show that the money the rail
‘ roads have made, and are capable of
- making under the present scale, is
; sufficient for all purposes of operation,

- it is not thrown away.

WILL YIELD TO
GENJARn
Carbajal Advises Washington of
Intention to Retire.
IS READY FOR PARLEY
John R. Silliman Instructed To Urge
Good Efforts—No Recognition
Until All Factions Get
Together.
Washington, D. C. —Francisco Car
bajal, successor to General Huerta as
Provisional President of Mexico, ad
vised the United States Government
informally that he intended to retire in
favor of General Carranza, the Consti
tutionalist chief. Mr. Carbajal wishes
only that a general amnesty be pro
claimed and protection given to the
property of those who opposed the
Constitutionalists.
This statement, together with the
announcement from Saltillo that Car
ranza was willing to enter into nego
tiations with Carbajal relative to the
transfer of authority at Mexico City,
was regarded here as practically as
suring a cessation of hostilities and
the restoration of peace in Mexico.
The views of Mr. Carbajal were ail
plained in detail to Secretary Bryan
by Jose Castellot, former member of
the Mexican Senate, who called at the
State Department with a personal
telegram which he had received
through the Mexican Embassy. It
was the first communication between
the American Government and the Car
bajal administration. The message in
cidentally revealed that Generals
Huerta and Blanquet, now en route to
Puerto Mexico, are planning to go to
Europe.
Carbajal Disavows Ambition.
The communication addressed to
Mr. Castellot, a personal friend of the
new President, read as follows;
“I have just taken the oath of office
as President of the Republic. Gen
erals Huerta and Blanquet departed
for Europe. I desire to make it known
with emphasis that my only purpose
is to facilitate a solution of the grave
problems which weigh upon our coun
try. I have not the slightest ambi
tion for myself and merely wish to ter
minate the internal conflict of our
country. Please give me your impres-.
sions of the situation in Washington.
“FRANCISCO CARBAJAL.”
Secretary Bryan thanked Mr. Cas
tellot for the information he brought
and told him that while recognition
would not be accorded Carbajal, the
United States was amicably disposed
toward him and would applaud his
patriotic efforts to bring about peace
in his country. Mr. Castellot left the
State Department in a happy mood and
promptly telegraphed the result of his
conference to Mr. Carbajal.
Bryan Optimistic.
Secretary Bryan himself was highly
optimistic in the belief that peace at
last was in sight in turbulent Mexico
and he told his friends that he believed
the policy of “watchful waiting” and
patience had been a success. In order
to assure a transfer of authority with
out further bloodshed or disturbances,
however, the American Government be
gan to use its good offices with Gen
eral Carranza.

the joy of returning health as realized
by an Ills, young lady. She writes:
“I had been a coffee drinker nearly
all my life and it affected my stomach
—caused insomnia and I was seldom
without a headache. I had heard
about Postum and how beneficial it
was, so concluded to quit coffee and
try it.
“I was delighted with the change.
I can now sleep well and seldom ever
have headache. My stomach has got
ten strong and I can eat without suf
fering afterwards. I think my whole
system greatly benefited by Postum.
“My brother also suffered from
stomach trouble while he drank cof
fee, but now, since using Postum, he
feels so much better he would not go
back to coffee for anything.”
