At present Eighteenth avenue is so called as far as the livington line. As is crosses from Newark to Irvington jt. narrows to a fifty-foot street and ends about n block from the Newark line. It was proposed and endorsed by the Vallsburg improvers that Eighteenth cvenue he opened up to the South urangi line. President NVidia us stated that the township of Irvington was willing to widen the short street and open it up As l’ar as the west side of Irvington, when the avenue would again run through Vallsburg and to the South Orange line. The president expressed himself as being confident that if the Vallsburg authorities do their part in opening up the portion of the avenue that runs through Irvington the city of Newark will continue the A”enue to the South Orange line.

Radishes and Other Home Products at Centre Mar ket—Prices Are Moderate. I Ne w Jersey vegetables made theii first appearance of the season ir Centre Market today. The arrival oi home produce marks the beginning oi the end for Southern vegetables that have ruled for months. Today New Jersey lettuce, the first of its kind was offered at the vegetable stands There was also home radishes and spinach. Another feature of the vegetable stands this week is the quantity of South African muskmelons. Tin melons were almost unknown in this country up until a comparatively short time ago. A few weeks back they were offered to Newarkers. They "took," the merchants say, and as a result housekeepers are buying them rapidly. New beets from the South are sell ing for twelve cents a bunch. New lima beans are also to be seen. There is asparagus a-plc nty. It is selling all the way from twenty cents for the inferior grades to forty cents for th«- choicest bunches. other vegetable prices arc.

April 17.—Preslden Wilson's action in sending the Allan tic fleet to Tampico was character ized yesterday as an "outrage" b; Alfonso I.. Jiminez. the Mexieai vice-consul at New Ydrk* Seno Jiminez declared that “every mar woman and child in Mexico, with ai ounce of decent blood in their veins would tight to the last if tile Unitei States sent an army into Mexieai territory.” The vice-consul made his statemen at his office in the Whitehall building He Is acting consul-general, pendim the arrival of his chief, who is ex pected today. lion fan Salute lie Krpreted? | "How can the United States cxpec I |i be saluted by the Mexican govern | mem, considering the fact that lorn ago, at the end of the Madero regime the United Stales refused to recog nize Huerta?” was the question Senoi Jiminez asked. He said it could not be answered. "The action of the United States In sending all thost ships to Mexico is an outrage, ant there i- no excuse for it," he added “Mexicans arid many people I mel Iasi night were amazed at the action of titis government. The Tampico in - eident was a thing thul might have happened in any country under like conditions. Then all possible repara tion was made; the sailors who were arrested were released. They had been v ictims of the blunder of a minor officer. liuerta Not to Hlame. “President Huerta cannot be every where. and no doubt lie would havt prevented the thing. But the idea of demanding that Mexico lire a salute to tile American flag wnen the United Stales refused to salute back is mon strous. How can President Wilson demand a salute from a country he does not recognize? “If President Huerta did order a salyte. and if the United States ac cepted if as an apology, would it not mean the recognition of the Huerta administration as the Mexican Gov ernment? "Another thing is this, why should not the United States respond to Mex ico's salute? if I take off my Imt to a man i expect him to return my salute In the affairs of nations the etiquette is tile same as between men. "The United States has been watch ing fur this opportunity to quarrel with us. That is obvious to every one who lias watched the situation. 1 do not believe that Americans will he in sympathy with any interference in our internal troubles. We are not looking for international courtesy as mueli as common decency in this case. ".Not a word was said about the shooting of nine Americans about threo months ago in Tampico, where they had been found smuggling arms to the rebels. Not a thing was done in tin- Benton killing, and, indeed, there have been many times when this country had greater excuses for intervening than the present one. But nothing was done. \ ilia OulraKcs. "Nothing was Hone by the L'nited | States when Villa and the bandits ' who make up his so-called army out t raged the women of the towns they passed through on their ravaging campaigns, such as Torreon and Durango; and nothing wus done when Villa robbed 700 Spaniards and then drove them from Torreon. It Is sur prising that even these things did not arouse Mr. Wilson. "Now. it would be all right and reasonable for the l'nited States to send a big tieet to Japan, hut the sending offlfty-seven vessels to Mex ico is a colossal bluff. We have onlv a few ships down there, good onlv for harbor defense. We would not, of course, think of resisting the 1 ’cited States ships with our own, but our army—well, that is different KcrMlI* Fr«»m*h ExjiprlfniT. "Do you remember what we gave France? The French intervention in 1861 cost us 22,000 men, but it cost France 25,000, and 900,000,000 francs. Mr. Wilson should read the history of that intervention before he acts too hastily. We fought every inch of the ground with the French, and. al though we are at present internally divided, we can raise an army of 4fHl,000 at least, so that we are com paratively better equipped now than ever before. "We have had 300,000 reserves training four hours a day for the past six months, and of our 13,000.000. I believe that every man, woman and child with Mexican blood would fight. Men would rather see their wives and children killed than to be hampered by the Vnlteti States. Women and children will rise up and fight, I know, against the brutality of a big power like this. "I am certain that the men who are now divided against one another will Join and take up arms 1n one common cauf’e. the defense of their country against the attacks of the l'nited States.” ilirant Mrs. Wakefield New Trial; Court Finds Firror in Admitting Confession BRIDGEPORT, Conn., April 17.— In a decision handed down last night I the Connecticut Supreme Court of Errors, sitting In this city, ordered | .1 new trial for Mre.
