ENVOY WILSON
FEARS CHAOS
Ambassador to Mexico Says
Outlook Is Gloomy if
Huerta Falls
"STANDS PAT" ON HIS
NOTE TO CONSULS
Mexican Situation Is Ban
, dits Versus Law and Or
der, He Declares
New York, July 28. Henry Lane Wil
son, United States ambassador to Mex
ico, arrived aboard the Ward liner Mex
ico yesterday from Mexico. After a
short interview with newspaper men the
ambassador hurried from the pier at the
foot of Joralemon strpet to Iris train for
Washington. Mr. Wilson received a tel
egram from the state department this
morning instructing him to come to
Washington as quickly as was conven
ient for him.
Ambassador Wilson was reluctant at
first to talk for publication. He made
tt plain, however, that lie thought he
had done right in Mexico and reiterated
that he wus willing to "stand pat" on
his record there.
Mr. Wilson was questioned regarding
.a telegram published last week purport
ing to have come from Henry Lane Wil
son to one of the American consuls in
Mexico, instructing the consul to urge
all citizens to support the Huerta gov
ernment. Mr. WilHon was shown the
telegram.
"They accused me of standing by the
new governmfoit.' said the ambassador.
"I have stood by it. I not only sent
that telegram, but I sent telegrams to
every consul ia Mexico. I sent them on
my own initiative for the purpose of re
storing order. I wanted to sustain lavr
and not bandfts. It has been customary
for a hundred years to recognize the de
facto government."
'I have seen reports in American
newspapers tftat bandits were in con
trol of all the states in Mexico," said
Ambassador Wilson. "As a matter of
fact they are not in control in any of
the states. They don't seem to under
stand in the United States that the rev
olutionists in Mexico are really bandits.
They call them 'constitutionalists' up
here.
"My idea in putting the Federal gov
ernment in full control was to protect
the lives of -thousands of Americans
who at that time were in great dnngcr.
It was the only course for me to pur
sue. If the prpsent government fails
there will be altsolute chaos in Mexico
for there are at least 1,000,000 bandits
in the country. 'It is a country where
brigandage has immunity and where
guerilla warfare pays better than any
other form of work."
' Mr. Wilson said that for the most
part the reports received in the United
States regarding conditions in Mexico
were untrue. Many people, he said,
were interested in falsifying reports for
6elfish reasons and others were looking
for intervention because of their own in
terests in that country. Mr. Wilson
said that if he hadnt intervened in the
late revolution and brought Piaz and
Huerta together the entire city would
have been fired and a great loss of life
would have resulted.
Mr. Wilson was questioned regarding
Mrs. Madero's reflections upon the Hu
erta government.
"Mrs. Msdero is a forger," said Am
bassador Wilson, "T would rather not be
quoted on this point because I don't like
to say anything about a widow, but such
is the truth and I can prove my state
ment by letters which were filed at
Washington."
' "Do you favor intervention?" Mr.
Wilson was asked.
"I didn't say so," replied the ambas-

DEAD LETTER SALE
BRINGS IN $1,105
One-Half Million Picture Post Cards Are
Sold to One Person for
$171.50.
Washington, July 2ti. When officials
of the "dead letter" branch of the post
office department yesterday finished
counting dimes, nickels and pennies de
rived from the annual "dead letter" sale,
they discovered that the United States
government w $1,105.75 richer as the
result of carelessness on the' part of
those who, in the past year, intrusted
badly directed packages to the mails.
No parcel post matter was in this sale
as that service has not been established
long enough to permit the sale of un
called for or misdirected packages.
The articles disposed of were of the
usual variety and under a recent ruling
of the department, were opened lor in
spee.tion by would-be purchasers before
being offered for saiaf Objection in tlie
past to the "lottery" form of selling
the packages at auction to the higheet
bidder, who trusted to luck to win a
prize, aroused so much criticism that
it was abandoned.
One purchaser bought thirty-five cases
of picture postal cards, containing more
than 500,000 cards, for $171.50. A case
of cheap jewelry went to another pur
chaser for 13.5. The bidders were large
ly dealers from Philadelphia and Balti
more. WIRELESS AMERICA TO ASIA
Army Signal Corps at Nome Communi
cates With Anadyr, Siberia.
Nome, Alaska, July 26. -Direct wire
less communication between America and
Asia is now an accomplished fact, the
United States army signal corps station
here having bee.11 in nightly communica
tion since Sunday with the Russian sta
tion at Anadyr, Siberia, 500 miles west
of Nome. A message from Baron Kleit.
governor of the Siberian province of
Kamtchatka, who visited Nome a short
tune ago, was transmitted, extending
congratulations on the establishment of
wireless communication, between Asia
and America. The Russian government
operates a cliain of four stations between
Anadyr and Vladivostok and for the last
six months the signal corps' operators
here have been trying under orders from
Washington to establish communication
with the Russian stations.
Has Plan To Fight Trusts.
AVoshington, July 26. President Wil
son has an anti-trust policy of his own,
it became known yesterday, but lie will
not broach it until the December ses
sion of Congress. The president has in
mind a legislative program which does
not necessarily involve an amendment
of the Sherman anti-trust laws, but it
is said to contemplate additional stat
utes defining monopolies. The president
has declined, however, to discuss his
ideas until the tariff and the currency
are disposed" of.

Successor Unnamed.
Washington, July 26. Reorganization
of the weather .bureau is soon to he
made, as the result of a report yesterday

mittee appointed some time ago to in
vestigate the workings of the bureau.

C. F. Marvin and E. B. Calvert. The
changes they recommend will not be
put into effect all at one time. Secre

lieves greater efficiency will result. .o

as head of the bureau some time ago
has vet been announced, though a man
has been selected.
SEA SINKS AND BOILS FISH.
Alarming Fall of Ocean Observed
By
Italian Warships.
New Y'ork, July 26. From Milan
Italy, comes a story to The Times about
a curious phenomenon reported from
southern Italy. During the recent pe
riod of earthquake shocks and renewed
volomic activity, (omit Octiuo Jliscar
etti, commander of the Vettor PisanI,
with three other torpedo vessels, was
engaged in target practice in the Gulf of
Salerno when the sea suddenly began
to sink at so amazing a rate that he
was constrained to weigh anchor and
steam 300 yards away. The center of
the disturbance seemed almost immedi
ately under the fleet.
This remarkable phenomenon was wit
nessed also by Admiral I'orsi and the
members of various crews. They said
it was unique, in their experience. The
lowered level was observed for a quarter
of an hour. Then the sea returned to
its normal level, and after a while the
whole phenomenon was repeated. The
same phenomenon was observed over a
space of two hours in the Bay of Naples
and also at Mesina. Near the latter
port in the salt kke of Ganzirra, cele
brated for its oyster and other shellfish
beds, the water became boiling hot dur
ing the night, so that the fisherfolk
found the surface covered with tons of
cooked fish and molluscs.
"BORAX KING'' IN COURT.
Bankruptcy Petition Filed Against F.
M.
Smith at San Francisco.
San Francisco, July 26. The tangled
affairs of F. M. Smith, the "Wax king,"
and head of a ?2W),(kxi,000 string of cor
porations, were taken into the bankrupt
cy court Thursday when four creditors
of the financier with claims amounting
to $155,000 filed a petition asking that
Smith be declared an involuntary bank
rupt. The petition declares that prior to
May 5, when a committee was appoint
ed to act as trustees in managing Smith's
affairs, and when he was insolvent, he
conveyed without money consideration,
properties valued at $1,000.00(1. The com
mittee of business men which has charge
of the personal affairs of Mr. Smith said
the petition in bankruptcy was entirely
unexpected. bewtuse, when the commit
tee took charge, it was the opinion of
a majority of the creditors they would
be able to accomplish more than would
a receiver in bankruptcy.

There Is No Rush in the Senate to
Make Speeches.
Washington, July 28. With an ad
journment of the Senate last night, less
than ten paragraphs of the Underwood
Simmons tariff bill had been approved
during the day on account of argument
over features ot the chemical schedule,
"The tariff bill should pass the Senate
by Aug. I; and be on the statute books
by Aug. 1," was the confident prediction
yesterday ot Senator Williams ot Mis
sissippi. He was enthusiastic over the
"speeding up" plan adopted by the Bern
ocratic majority.
"We shall probably have only one
more general argument from the major
ity standpoint,." Senator Williams said,
"and that will be made by Senator
Shively of Indiana. For the rest, we. are
under an ordinance of self-denial.
Senator Works concluded his speech
on the effect of the bill upon California
industries yesterday afternoon. As no
further speakers from the Uepublican
side were ready, the Senate went on
with the reading of the measure, para
graph by paragraph. The same work
will continue to-dav.

day. Senator Uronna tor two hours on
Tuesday and Senator Lippitt probably
on Wednesday.

day spirit, at least not right away,"

Government Thinks There's Money
Fox Raising..
In
Washington, July 26. A number of

yesterday that good profits await the
men who take up the industry. The
government, he said, 'has a number of
small islands off the Alaskan coast which
it will lease to anyone who desires them
for fox farming, and at the same time
the government will furnish breeding
animals at low price.
There eve several fox raising estab
lishments in Canada, said Mr. Sweet,
which are reported to be making big
profits arid as the skins bring fancy
prices in London, center of the fur sell?

I'nited States should be reaping part of
the returns.

Wall street campaign, was indicted for

appear before I uited Mat i oininis
sinner ravlor here, but he will fight any
attempt to remove him from Washing
ton at this time."

TAFT PLEASED,
SAID MULHALL
After White House Interview in
1910
Lobbyist Wrote To Foraker
To This Effect.
Washington, July 26. Martin M. Mul
hall'a story of bin lobbying activities for
the National Association of Manufactur
ers, as unfolded before the Senate lobby
committee, is to ' be allowed to Btand
practically without cross-questioning
from Democratic members of the com
mittee. Senators Nelson and Cummins, who
Thursday began a severe questioning of
the witness upon many of hia state
ments, probably will continue to demand
more detailed statements upon his let
ters as they are introduced in the rec
ord; but the Democratic members, Sena
tors Overman, Reed and Walsh, expect
to let the Mulhall story stand princi
pally upon the evidence presented in the
5,000 or more letters.
Mulhall will go before the House lob
by committee early next week, and it
is expected that there he will be sub
jected to a rigid examination as to the
charges contained in his mass of corre
spondence that members of the House
were his close associates in political cam
paign work and in efforts to head off
labor legislation.
Mulhall continued his testimony yes
terday, ,
He went to Massachusetts in August,
1010, and wrote to General Manager Bird
of the manufacturers of conference with
Senator Lodge, and Charles E. Hatfield,
"chairman of the state committee." .
"Senator Lodge pays us all kinds of
compliments for the work we are doing
and I know we will have his aid more
actively than ever before in the next
campaign," wrote Mulhall. In other
letters that month Mulhall wrote:
"Through our efforts we have beaton
the Hon. T. D. Nichols of the tenth
Pennsylvania and we have beaten no
torious George A. Pearre, of injunction
fame, in the sixth Maryland."
On Aug. 30, Mulhall wrote President
Taft. asking for an interview for Bird
and himself. He testified that he re-
ceivvd a reply from C. D. Norton, the
president secretary, arranging the in
terview for Monday afternoon,, Sept. 12,
at Reverlv.
Oct. 5, 1010, he wrote to former Sena
tor Foraker about his talk with Presi
dent Taft, saying he had submitted
names of men who would help in the
campaign.
lie seemed to scrutinize the list very
closely," Mulhall wrote, "and talked as
if John H. Taylor of East Liverpool and
H. M. Hanna were not enthusiastic
friends of his. He was greatly pleased
with the work I told him had been done
Massachusetts and other states, and
advised me to inform our people to do
everything we possibly could to keep in
touch with leaders of the congressional
committee, so that we might be able
to help in close congressional districts."
PARCEL POST
CHANGE AUG. 15
Burleson Announces Benefit To Public,
and Forecasts 100-Pound Weight
Limit.
Washington, Julv 26. The interstate
commerce commission baa come to the
defense of Postmaster General Burleson
on his recent order extending the parcei
iKVt. This order has been assailed by
the railroads and express companies, but
Burleson says it will go into effect on
Aug. 15.
Under the law changes in parcel post
rates and regular ones can be made on
approval of the interstate commerce
commission. The commission, in answer
to a letter of inquiry, takes the posi
tion that no fiwmal hearing and inves
tigation are required, but that on' such
investigation as it sees fit the commis
sion can give its approval. In this ease
the approval waa given.
The commission says in its memoran
dum: t
"The question of compensation to the
carriers for hauling the mails is a mat
ter of contract between them and the
pontofliee department, in connection with
which this commission has no jurisdic
tion." At the hearing yesterday on the new
order before the Senate postotlice com
mittee significant statements were made
by Postmaster General Burleson' a.nd
Commissioner Clark, chairman of the in
terstate commerce commission. Both in
effect foretasted the 100-pound weight
limit for packages carried by the parcel
post.
The postmaster general declared that
the logical development of the system
was the 100-pound limit, and Chairman
(lark expressed himself in favor of it.
The postmaster general defended the le
gality of his order, showed that the com
mission consented to it. and made it
plain that he intended further changes
as soon as they could be justified. Chair
man Clark mid the commission hsd con
sented to the new order and held that
Burleson had complied with the law.
After the hearing Postmaster General
Burleson yesterday announced he would
issue the final orders at once, putting
the changes in effect Aug. 15, reducing
the rate and increasing the size limit.

tions at the Ghent exposition, including

IN THE FIELD
OF SPORTS
Tim Murmane, one of the sporting
writers for the Boston Globe and a com
petent baseball critic says that Larry
Lajoie of the Naps is going better than
he has any time in the last five years.
Charlie McDonald, the star hitter of
the Boston Braves, is unable to take his
place at third base because of an in
jured ankle.
Joe Tinker hopes to strengthen his
pitching staff by the addition of Her
bert, who hails from the Virginia league.
The speed that the athletics are
travelling this season can well be told
by their average runs per game this sea
son. The average issix.
Hereafter when the Washington club

ably advise his players to be careful
when bathing. Last Sunday several of his
players had narrow escapes from drown

serious head injuries that he will not be
able to play for some time.
Clark Griffith savs that Catcher Ain
smith could hold Johnson bare handed.
If questioned Ainsmith would undoubt

John S. McAUlty, tt former umpire in
the Federal league, baa entered a rather
peculiar plea in his suit for $33,000
damages because of an assault upon him
by J. J. O'Connor, manger of the St.
Louis club. The suit grows out of an
assault upon McNuIty by O'Connor last
June during the progress of a game be
tween St. Louis and Indianapolis. It
was McXulty's first game as umpire and
probably his last. He alleged that be
cause of the attack he will never be
able to earn a livelihood in his profes
sion of baseball umpiring.
Negotiations for the annual Army
Navy football contest for 1913 seems to
be tiie same as ever, resulting in a dead
lock between the arrangement com

lar battle. The navy people still favor
the policy of playing at Philadelphia.
Contrary, the army people want the
game to be played at New York or West
Point and Annapolis alternate. The
naval cadets argue that there would be

Jesse Bnrkett of the Worcester club
of the New England league is coming in
for words of praise from many, Bnr
kett grounded young Boehling, the
Washington pitcher, into a big league
while he was with Worchester last sea
son. At Worcester he won fourteen
games and lost eight.
It is odd that the St. Louis Ameri
cans are not making a better showing in
their league. It must be because of
titedated methods of mnning the club.
They seem to have a well balanced
team, backed by a superb bunch of
twirlers in Hamilton, Lsverenz and
Weilman, all left banders.

Australians Desire to Learn How to
Start a New Party,
New York, July 26. Lawrence Abbott
says that while Colonel Roosevelt has
made no arrangements to go to Austra
lia, his admirers there are trying to
complete arrangements for a visit. A
report has been in circulation that when
Roosevelt finishes his Tisit to South
America he will go to Australia, and
that the two trips will take up the
better part of a year. It was reported
also that when the colonel gets back he
will retire as contributing editor of The
Outlook. He will return from the South
west about Sept. 1. He will start for
South America on Oct. 4. Mr. Abbott
is uncertain just how long the colonel
will take to cover his trip through the
three republics, as he has not decided
whether he will go into the interior of
South Amercia on a hunting trip. If
he does go into Jhe woods, he will not
return to New Y'ork before late in the
spring of 1014.
Recent developments in Australian
politics have aroused Colonel Roosevelt's
interest. The rising of the Young Aus
tralian party has been similar in many
respects to that of the Progressive party
here. Mr. Abbott denied the report that
the colonel is thinking of leaving The
Outlook. "The intimate relations that
have existed between the colonel and
the rest of The Outlook staff," said he,
"have not changed. When he returns
from South America he will re-enter our
editorial councils. We shall receive pa
pers from him from time to time on
political and social conditions in South
America. There is no reason to expect
that when he gets back he will make
any change. I am very sure that he will
not."
Friends of Colonel Roosevelt say he
has found his conenction with The Out
look burdensome; that he would be glad
to have his time to himself. They be
lieve that he will make a new arranire-
