AS MEXICAN Cables Its Representative to Make Friendly Representa tions to Huerta. WILSON GIVES HUERTA A DAY TO RECONSIDER If There Is No Change of At titude President Will Read Message. PARIS, Aug. 25.—The French for eign office cabled instructions to the French minister in Mexico on Friday last to support the policy of the United States toward Mexico by Plaiting friendly representations to Provisional President HuertH. The French government declares it self convinced by its advices from Washington of the sincerity of the. pacific intentions of the United States government toward the Mexi can people. A rumor emanating from apparent ly well-informed circles indicated that President Raymond Poincare would not receive Francisco de la Barra, recently appointed Mexican minister to France, but inquiries at the foreign ofiice today brought out the authoritative affirmation that the French ministry would not raise the slightest difficulty in the way of the reception of Senor de la Barra by the French president at an/early date. It was pointed out that the question of the acceptability of Senor de la Barra In France had been settled be fore lie left Mexico for Paris, and it was also declared that he was a per sonal friend of President Poincare. Senor de ila Barra has arrived ill Paris, and the Mexican charge d’affaires will make immediate in quiries at thef oreign office as to when he can present his credentials. Tile question, however, has not been definitely settled. Senor de la Barra, it is understood, intends to go to Rome before presenting his letters of credence, and President Poincare, who is spending his vacation in the country, will not return to. Paris un til September 17. Wilson Gives Huerta n On,' WASHINGTON. Aug. 26.—Presi dent Wilson made it plain today that unless there was a change in the at titude of the Huerta government within the next twenty-four hours, he would carry out his intention to personally read to Congress tomor row a special mensaKe outlining tne policy of the United States toward Mexico. . ... He will discHss the message, tonight at the White House with the entire membership of the Senate foreign re lations committee and the House for eign affairs committee. The message is couched in very kind terms, be rause the President feels that the world generally ought to recognize that the situation in Mexieo is ab normal, being controlled by a small group of men. That circumstance, the President believes, ought not ob scure the real feeling of the United States towards Mexicans, which is one of generous friendship. The President does not wish in any public utterance to use words of harshness or hostility. Foreign rowers Pre»s Huerta. That foreign powers generally are exercising their good offices in Mex ico City, pressing Huerta to yield to the American proposals, now is open ly admitted by administration offi cials. , ,, When questioned today whether such participation by European gov ernments in the politics of the west i rn hemisphere was considered an In fringement upon the Monroe doctrine, it was pointed out by administration officials that the United States did not construe an act of friendship as impairing, at any time, the Monroe doctrine. It was pointed out also that the activities of foreign governments were not due to any request by the United States for assistance, but that this government had decided on a policy of keeping the nations of the world generally informed of the steps being taken to bring about peace, leaving tt tft the countries of the world to do epontaneously what seemed expedient. Message to Go to Diplomats. , A copy of President Wilson's mes sage will be delivered to the diplo matic corps here after its reading to Congress. The document is longer than usually has been the case with messages from President Wilson. When he was asked today to estimate its length he laughingly told friends lie hud written It on a new typewriter, and could not estimate it, hut it is expected to make about four thousand words. At the White House it was said there was nothing j ending, so far as this government was concerned, which might prevent the President from reading the message tomorrow.

FINDS JOKER IN CATTLE TARIFF Congressman Kinkead, of Jer sey City, Claims It Would Bar Outside Shipments. Star Bureau, Metropolitan National Bank BIiIr., WASHINGTON, Auk. 15: Although the pending tariff bill now puts all meat and cattle on the free list, Congressman Kugene F. Kin kead has discovered an alleged joker in the til 11, which, he declares, would have the effect of practically shut ting meat from other countries out of the American market Dr. Galloway, of the department of agriculture, agrees with Mr. Kinkead as to the effect of the joker, and the Jersey congressman today asked the President to take the matter up and have the bill amended at once u; remedy the situation. The President promised to do so. Kinkead began his fight for free meats and cattle in ills iirsl term in Congress, and has at all times been active in efforts to change the laws to break the monopoly and high prices of the beef trust, it was largely due to liis efforts that President Wilson insisted that meat and cattle be put on the free list In the Underwood bill. Despite the proposed removal of duties it is the opinion of agricultural department authorities that the in terpretation of the meat inspection laws would bar the importation of meat from other countries, if the tariff bill goes through as it is. The President will urge that an amend ment be added to the bill, giving Im- j ported meat the same standing in tills country as domestic meal, when it! comes from countries whose inspec tion laws are recognized and approved by the United States.

A up. 25.—The indict- i ment of Charles F. Murphy, leader of j Tammany Hall; Aaron J. Levy, leader; of the Democratic majority in the As sembly, and Senator James J. Fraw ley, chairman of the committee which investigated -Governor Sulzer’s cam paign contributions, has been re- j quested of the district attorneys of New York and Albany counties by I Lynn J. Arnold, of Albany, an ardent Sulzer supporter. The indictment of the three leaders j is asked on statements of many per- j sons, presented by Judge Arnold to , the district attornev«. regarding an ! alleged conspiracy to nut Sulzer out j of the governor’s chair. In so an- i nouncing, Judge Arnold repeated his declaration that* money had been freely used to accompitsn this re sult. Judge Arnold, who is publisher of | the Knickerbocker-Press. of Albany, ! said today: •Imlge Arnold's Statement. "My newspaper has been friendly to Sulzer In this tight because we thought he was not getting a square deal. Because of thD friendliness many persons have written to us and called at our office to toll us what they knew of a plot on the part of certain men whom l cannot (name now, to disgrace Sulzer and put him out of the governor's chair. “This evidence has been placed be fore competent lawyers and they be lieve with me that It is sufficient to warrant indictments In connection with the impeachment proceedings. As an instance of the number of men who are ready to testify, f will say that ten men came into our of fice with evidence relating to this plot. We believe that it Is amply Strong to warrant the Indictment of Murphy, Levy. Frawley and others. I cannot say tiow many others now, nor can I tell the nature of the, charges. “They go to show, however, that there was a conspiracy and a plot against Sulzer. More than that they tend to prove a fiendish crime far greater titan that. 1 cannot say now, irt the present unsettled stnte of affairs what (his crime is. Sufficient to say that it was fiendish—nothing short of it. "This evidence, in part. Is already in the hands of District Attorney Whitman and the district attorney of Albany county. They arc considering it. What thev think of it 1 am not at liberty to say. They will have more of it soon." MULHALL INVITES WEH10 FIGHT!

McDermott’s defense to charges brought out in the House lobby investigation began today with cross-examination of Martin M. Mul hall. author of the expose which pic tured the National Association of Manufacturers as the maker and breaker of many congressmen.

Cross-examination devloped that In one recent visit to the World office Mulhall was uecorn lobby committee (1. G. West, private secretary to McDermott, told the committee he did not know Mulhall and branded the latter’s story of the use of a "secret j room" in the basement of the Capitol as a headquarters for spies upon con- . gressfnen as false Mulhall told of trying to dispose of the letters to William It. Hearst. ! Periton Maxwell, editor of one of I Hearst's magazines, told Mulhall the1 only reason he could advance for Hearst's lack of Interest was "that he thought It would help the present administration.” Attorneys for McDermott declared they wished to show Mulhali's Idas, impugn his credibility and question his accuracy and veracity.

THAW IS ENRAGED AT HIS KEEPERS AS: MEAL IS DELAYED Public Hears Courts anti Of ficials Are Drenched by Money of His Family. SHERBROOKE, Que„ Aug. 25.— William Travers Jerome, formerly district attorney of New York county, reached here by motor this afternoon from New City, Vermont, to take charge of New York State's case in ito endeavor to have Harry K. Thaw returned to Mat tea wan. Mr. Jerome had no comment to make on the ! situation. Roger O’Mara, for the Thaw fam ily. had not reached Sherbrooke this afternoon, and counsel for both sides marked time, by hold ing further conferences. The gen eral understanding still prevailing was that Thaw’ would be ar raigned lit the Superior Court on Wednesday morning on the commit ment under which he had been held a i fugitive from the Matteawan hos pital. turned over to the immigration authorities and ultimately ddported to Vermont. Thaw had a row with the jail au thorities today because his breakfast from a hotel arrived late, it was the worst show of temper since his deten tion here. J. Parkinson, of Montreal, connect ed with tue dominion secret service, reached Sherbrooke today to keep In touch with the case. Stories of Thaw money corrupting courts, judges and immigration officials—all of them baseless so far as anyone can learn— were being discussed in the hotel cor ridors and on the streets at noon. . Ex-Governor Stone, of Pennsyl vania. characterized all such rumors as “absurd.** “The law will be allowed to take its I course in this case.’* he said. “All \v<* j ask for is simple Justice.” W. lv. McKeown. of the Thaw legal contingent, explained this afternoon one of the reasons why they had not yet announced a definite plan of ac tion. “We are waiting for the other side to show its hand,” he remarked. “It I has never been made clear to us just exactly what the attitude of the Ga nn din n authorities is in regard to Thaw.” Tliaw I In- Restful Night. Thaw had a fairly restful night. He is fortunate, as an* all of those who rushed here after his detention, in having cool', clear, invigorating weather. Ho has taken little exercise, how ever. unless the nervous pacing of his cell can be called exercise, and Ills personal appearance Is far from being that of the neat, young-old ajmn lie appeared to he at the New YWH ctiurt hearings. He was always spruced up there at the careful coaching of counsel, but his Sherbrooke cell looks unkept. A wild rumor floated about Sher brooke just before dawn that there had at last been carried out the often talked-of jail delivery and that Thaw was again speeding away in the night in an automobile. It was the out growth of the noise made by the pow erful car of a local physician who \ happened to be rushing through the streets with the muffler of his nia- ] chine wide open not far from the jail. •l(*ronu> Autoing to Thaw. COLEBROOKE, N. H . Aug. 25. - William Travera Jerome. special deputy attorney-general for New i York State* in the Thaw ease, ar- . rived here today on his way to fiber- | brooke. Quebec. Mr. Jerome is driving his own au- I tomobile and is following, so far as j possible, the exact route taken by ) Thaw In his flight from Matteawan. | Mr. Jerome, who was accompanied bv John Langdon. stopped at Cole- j brook for a short time, and then de- j parted for Beecher Falls, Vt., a rail way station about a quarter of a! mile from the Canadian boundary, where Thaw left the train and hired j a carriage to drive him across the ( line last Tuesday. “I have no doubt.” said Mr. : j Jerome, "that Thaw will be returned to New' York and again confined in j Matteawan. 1 am confident of the j outcome* of this case. I believe Thaw will be deported from Canada and ; there will be no trouble about get ting him into New York State.” When Mr. Jerome left here ho ex- | ported to reach Sherbrooke, where i Thaw is held in Jail, some time dur ing the day. / Expect Jump in Price of Milk There is a strong feeling among j the dairymen in the East, and in ; this State in particular, that milk j may go up In price next winter he- j cause of the long continued dry spell j in the West, from where they get j most of the feed for their cattle. Owing to the continued drought, the I dairymen say, the forage crops have I been reduced more than one-half, and I on this account they believe milk will j cost more. A local wholesale milk dealer, speaking on tile subject, said: "If there is a raise In the price of j milk next winter the strict health regulations on thA milk question will be largely to blame. Nowadays cows are raised too scientifically, and to: adhere to these regulations the far-; mer or dairyman must expend a lot! of money, und the only way the bust ness will pt.y then is to raise the price of the milk produced. "Strict regulations are all very well for the careless farmer, bui to bring the cuestion of raising cows uo vn to the scientific point, that's going loo far. Another reason for a raise In mile Is the dry spell out West; and still another rea-son is the countless rumors which are being continually Spread among the farmers about high-priced fodder and the like. All one has to do Is start a rumor of tilts kind among the majority of the dairy men and the result is a raise in the price of milk." NAVY SECRETARY TO LOOK OYER BAYONNE FLATS SOON Hl»r Bureau.

W. Y* SLAVERY FLOURISHES IN PHILIPPINE ISLANDS U. S. Commissioner Reports Insular Supreme Court Blocks Proceedings to End Traffic in Slaves and That Even Legis lators Own Peons—Girls Stolen and Sold for Rice and Pigs. - j WASHINGTON, Aug. 25.—Slavery in the full meaning of the word ex* ists throughout the Philippines, even in the city of Manila, and peonage Is general in the islands, according to a special report Commissioner Dean Worcester has made to the in sular government. It has not been received here by the war department, but copies are in the hands of other officials. Filipinos In some parts of the islands commonly capture children and sell them into slavery; some are sent to China. Some children have been enticed from their homes by slave agents upon promises ol scholarships in schools, and some of those, in an in stance whic h Mr. Worcester reports in detail, were sold and others were j farmed out for money. He cites the case of a 13-year-old girl bought for some pigs, ru e, chick ens and a cloak. The Supreme Court of tin* islands released the slave-trader on the ground Inal no crime had been com mitted because no physical force had been used. This one case. Mr. Worcester says, has blocked other slavery prosecutions. The Philippine As embly lias blocked laws for the suppression of the traffic, he says, because many of its members come from provinces where slavery flourishes. One of hi* reports on the traffic, lie says, lies tabled in the Philippine Assembly. Mr. Worcester declares In* had great difficulty in getting facts of slave cases, and intimates that reports were withheld by the olfices of the i Philippine constabulary. He cites the j case of a Philippine assemblyman caught red-handed owning a slave girl in Manila, and says: ' "I could obtain conclusive evidence of a hundred, a thousand, ten thou sand of them, but why multiply eases? U is simply a case of time and work.” He charges that Philippine assem blymen maintain peonage on their i own farms. W. CAMERON FORBES QUITS AS PHILIPPINES GOVERNOR MANILA, Aug. 25.—W. v'ameron Forbes, governor-general of the Phil ippines since November, 1909, today sent his resignation to Washington, it is effective September 1, just a week from today, wnen Mr. Forbes will leave directly for the United States. It was only yesterday. Mr. Forbes says, that he was apprised of the appointment of Francis Burton Har rison, of New York, as the new Phil ippine governor. His friends feel j strongly that he deserved more cour- i teems treatment after so long a serv- s ice. The retiring governor-general him- | self publishes in powerful terms a , reply to attacks by Representative Jones, of Virginia, who, in pressing i for the passage of a bill giving “In- i dependence” to the Philippines, urged the removal of Governor-Gen eral Forbes. The retiring head of the insular government answers Rep resentative Jones's statement point by point and declares that the Vir ginian representative cannot persuade Americans, who lend the world in in dustrial enterprises, that they are In competent to manage a govern mental enterprise and that he can not advance his case “by unpatriotic (Contlnneil on I’uge *>, Column It). SENATE AGREES TO FREE RAW WOOL __ ; Paragraph Goes Through With out Any Objection on a Roll-Call. WASHINGTON, Aug. 25.—Free raw wool was agreed to In the Senate to day without ii roll call. No objection was made to ratification of the para graph. though Republican senators will later demand i ’-calls on pend ing substitutes for the woolen sched ule. when the bill leave the roirlrTW’ 1 , tee of the whole. The finance committee amendment providing that free wool should not become operative until December 1, 1913, also was agreed to. The entire free list was approved with the exception of paragraphs re lating to works of art. which were recommitted. Consideration of the hill moved on steadily today with the prospect of having the free list and the paper and sundries schedules disposed of by tomorrow night. Finance com mittee amendments to so broaden the internal revenue regulations on de natured alcohol as to open the in dustry to farming communities will be presented io a Democratic cau cus next Week. Leaders believe the House and the I Senate will agree on disputed items i within two weeks after the Senate passes tile bill. Seiator Kenyon’s amendment to au tomatically free list products of a concern adjudged a monopoly by the court precipitated u prolonged debate at the conclusion of which it was re ferred to the finance committee. A diversity of opinion among Republi cans and Democrats was developed. Senator Cummins declared that the necessity for free listing monopoly products would disappear when the Sherman law was amended to send offenders to Jail and when courts ap pointed receivers to sell monopoly properties so that guilty ones could not continue to profit. ‘‘How can monopolies lie ended when the Supreme Court declares a combin ation violates the lav as it did In the Union Pacific and then the attorney general goes around to devise u plan with those Interested to keep the mo nopoly alive'.’” demanded Senator Bristow. He added that it seemed lo him that In the Standard Oil, the to bacco ease and the Union Pacific cases, the department of Justice had connived to continue their monopoly. Later Bristow explained he did not charge the attorney-general with de signedly spoking to annul the dissolu tion, but charged that the result of the attorney-general's consultation with the railroad interests had been to deprive the public of any benefits from the dissolution.
