Interest in the nature of President Wilson's message to Provisional President Huerta is keved to a high pitch, Mexicans and Ameri cans alike are indulging in guessing what the communication contains, but another day has gone by without afford ing satisfaction to their curiosity. Mameuvering for an owning "to pre sent President Wilson's merisage is con tinuing, but Air. Lind thus far has been unable to break through the reserve maintained by the Mexican executive. Two courses by which to present the documents are possible. One, and the most desirable, is for Mr. Lind personal ly to hand it to President Huerta; the other is to entrust its transmission through the embassy to the Mexican for eign office. The note has been translat ed into Spanish and is ready for Presi dent Huerta to read. The Mexican gov ernment is aware of this and the next move should be made by Huerta. The preliminary step toward carrying out President Wilson's instructions was taken Tuesday when Mr. Lind called upon Foreign Minister Gamboa and in formally discussed the situation. It has been agreed tentatively that Mr. Lind and Senor Gamboa will get together again, and at this meeting it is expect ed that a decision will be reached as to whether the note will be handed to President Huerta by way of the Mexican foreign office or presented personally by Mr. Lind. It is not expected that the parties to this conference will make public the character of the decision reached.

RELATIVES DOUBT SANITY DROUTH CUTS WATER SUPPLY The Orange Reservoir Level Sank Eight Inches in 24 Hours OTHER TWO BASINS IN LESSER DEGREE Extensive Improvements Be ing Completed for the City Daily inspection of Barre's three mam water sources, the Bolster, aiartin brook and Orange reservoirs indicates clearly that rain must full 'ere long if the city is to be spared the discomforts and dan gers of a water famine. Not in a good many months have conditions at the main reservoir at Orange been so threat ening. The water Continues tn rlrnn day in the big pond and the same may be said of the smaller bodies of watr on the west hill. Yesterday Supt. If. E. Reynolds of the water department and Chairman John E. Hoban of the alder manic water committee, accompanied by a Times man, visited each of the three reservoirs with a view to ascertaining how much longer the city's normal sup ply of water could be guaranteed. A drop of six inches over th nrevlnna day was noted at the Bolster reservoir. On the aiartin brook a few rods be yond, the water mark seemed to remain stationary with the registration of the day before. At the Orange reservoir, a drop of eight inches, creater than that of any day since registrations have been taKen, was discovered. To give soma inkling as to just how serious the situa tion has grown since the last precipita tion of any account was recorded, it may be said that the city is daily con suming a million gallons more than is flowing into the Orange reservoirs from its intakes.

It is announced here that the United States has intimated its readiness to favor in principal the payment of an indemnity to Japanese subjects who have been affected by the California alien land ownership legisla tion and also has recognized the right of Japan to adopt a measure to the Cal ifornia bill. From intimation given in official cir cles, it appears unlikely that Japan will adopt either idea. It is said that what she desires is permanent friendly rela tions with the United States and' there fore seeks the fundamental solution of the difficulty. FUSION TICKET COMPLETED.

In the morning session Marsha War rington concluded ber testimony on crows examination when Judge Van Fleet cut short the questions of Nathan Coghlan for the defense, with a curt statement that they elicited, nothing new or material to the case. Contrary to expectation Lola Norris, who followed her, was the more out spoken of the two. She was never at a loss for an answer and her replies were distinct, specific and full. In all essentials her narrative was the same as that of Marsha Warrington.

Yesterday the fall was eight inches and it is expected to have dropped 10 or 12 inches when the meas urements are taken late this afternoon, aianufacturers and householders all over the city are being asked to be as spar ing of the city water as possible. Not until the situation, becomes actually acute, will any steps be taken toward curtailing the supply on a lartre scale. Extended Improvements Made. Within the present week, laborers em ployed by the water department under the direction of Superintendent Reynold and the chairman of the committee, have been completing a.chain of improvements started in June, when the old wooden dam between the upper and lower reser voirs was replaced by a modern cement structure. The appearance of the up per body has undergone a complete trans formation by reason of the changes at the mouth and" the changes alonir the banks. A cement dam mcaursing 218 feet from shore to shore replaces the wooden barrier that had hitherto held the waters back. The old dam had long ago outgrown its usefulness and latter ly it had been a question whether in its decayed condition it had not polluted the water to a small degree. The new dam has an average height of 12 and lti feet with a spillway of solid concrete measuring 50 fect. "Tho spillway has an overflow of eight feet. The top of the dam is eight feet wide. Its cement work was constructed at a cost of $i!fiti, including labor and ma terial, while the expense of removing toe old structure and excavating for the new one brought the total cost up to $l.l()fl or thereabouts. How much the facilities for controlling the water have been in creased can be gathered in a single glance. That the new structure provides a measurably more sanitary way lor the water to find the outlet cannot be questioned. The work occupied several weeks and during that period a large gang of men from the city were con stantly engaged in the work. Once, while the city council was inspecting the work, Alderman Dawson narrowly escaped a fall of 20 feet into the pit below the dam site, but aside from that the project was carried on without a mishap. With the completion of the dam, tlm improvements did not cease. They ara still under way, for that matter. Scrub by underbrush that crept over from the neighboring pastures down to the very edge of the reservoir has been destroyed by the bush hook method. Saplings that obstructed a view of the upper reser voir from the road and followed tho pond up the pasture until it becomes a . narrow brook, have also been cut away. Everywhere about both reser voirs none but fir trees and evercreens have been spared. Wherever leaf-bearing trees were found to threaten the purity of the water, the bush hook has been applied. Around the boathouso yesterday men were cutting away tha iast vetige of small growth. Nothing remains now but a hard rain to raise the water and the reservoirs will be in excellent shape for the winter. LEAVES BROTHER IN BARRE. Dr. B. S. Hay ward of Washington, D. C; Rev.
