r . ITHE
But Maintains Silence Re
garding His Desti
A Crowd Met Him at Puerto
Mexico Last
Puerto Mexico, July 18. General Vic
. toriano Huerta, who recently resigned as
provisional president of Mexico, arrived
here shortly after 9 o'clock last night.
He was accompanied by General Blan
quet, his minister of war.
When he expects to leave his country
and share the exile of General Porflrio
Dial, whom he escorted to the coast
three years ago, is yet unknown, except
perhaps to himself. Captain Kohler of
the German cruiser Dresden offered him
his ship "for any use he cared to make
of her," but General Huerta merely
thanked him, adding that he would re
' turn his call before noon to-day. .
The trip to this port was without inci
dent or unpleasantness other than that
occasioned by the terrible heat of the
tropical lowlands. With Huerta and
Elanquet were the general staff.
The party occupied a train of nine
sleeping cars, four of which were given
over to troops. Two other trains loaded
with none but troops preceded General
Huerta's train and arrived here an hour
before the Huerta train. Behind them
came another train also loaded with
soldiers to guard against any rear move
ments. , ,
Captain Kohler and staff in formal
dress uniform were at the station and
were officially presented to General
Huerta. He thanked the captain for his
call and for the offer of his boat.
Answering inquiries as to the state of
his health, General Huerta assured the
officers that he felt fine, although some
what tired and worn from the heat.
British Vice Consul Gemmill also offi
cially called on Huerta and presented
him a message presumably an offer of
refuge on the British cruiser Bristol.
Huerta read it and expressed pleasuia
at the consideration being shown him.
Local officials, calling on General Huer
ta last night were few in number, the
only one of importance being General
Rincon, commander of the local garri
son. Commander Carvallo of the Mex
ican gunboat Zaragoza, with his staff,
also called, but General Huerta was al
ready weary of holding receptions and
asked to be excused for the night.
All arrangements were made early In
the day for the reception of Huerta and
..Blanquet and the stage was so set that
they could enter the city and board the
Dresden or Bristol and put out to sea
so quickly and quietly as to rob their
flight of "all dramatic elements. Tracks
were laid so that the special train could
be pulled along the wharf close to the
water and the cx-president and the ex
minister of war mould thus be enabled
to reach a launch in less than a dozen
None of the messages sent to Huerta's
wife or to General Camerena, command
ing the special guard here, indicated
Huerta's plans. Not even the captains
of the German and British vessels had
definite instructions. They were to leave
the decision to Huerta himself. It Is
generally believed, however, that Huerta
and Blanquet will go aboard the Dres
den, and the other refugees, including
Senora Huerta and Senora Blanquet
aboard the Bristol and that both cruis
ers will proceed for Jamaica or Havana.
It was ft day of sharp anxiety for the
older members of the party, especially
the wives of the two men who were
passing through a country where a con
siderable number of revolutionists are
known to be operating. They could not
rid themselves of the fear that the revo
lutionist would in some way seek re
Tenge on their husbands.
Both were downcast and unresponsive
o the efforts of the children and others
to arouse their spirits. They spent most
of the day on deck chain aboard the
Bristol, but the younger people wandered
somewhat listlessly, about the railroad
yards and visited the neighboring stores
which resemble the stores in the small
towns of the United States.
The hot weather had forced the young
women and girls to resurrect from their
trunks their summer dresses and cloth
ing rarely used in the capital and the
men arrayed themselves in white. .
A Solemn Incident.
When the train pulled in. scores of of
ficer from the trains which had pre
viously arrived lined alon? the wharf
t get a glimpse of their deposed chief.
There was not a cheer nor a handclap.
Those at the trainside. as if by agree
ment, treated the arrival of the e
president as a most solemn incident.
A few townspeople were present, rait
they exhibited nothine more than cu
riosity. About town absolute quiet pre
vailed; the town had already gone to
sleep and the few ruralea who had been
placed on duty at the intersections of
the street" had nothing more exciting to
do than to hold conversations with each
other when they met.
General Huerta was sit tine in the
smoking room of the car when the train
topped. I" front of him was General
Blanquet. both were in their shirt sleeve
and without collar. The official dele
gation from the German cruiser climbed
aboard the train before General Huerta
arpeored t realize their presence and
then bran scramble for coat and col
lar and a rapid dreexirjr scene was wit

tions, however, have been going on for
the chartering of the steamer Cincinnati
of Mexico to carry at least some of the
party to Jamaica.
Senora Huerta and Senora Blanquet
were aboard the Bristol and did not see
their husbands. Huerta appeared tired
and bored and was in no cheerful mood.
Many Mexicans in Capital Are Killing
Mexico City. July IS. An un
precedented number of suicides and at
tempted suicides have occurred since the
fall of the Huerta government. In the
past two days four suicides and three
attempt to have been reported. The resi
dents are appalled as such attempts are
rare here. '
There has been a notable lack of crime
during the same period and the tran
quility of the capital continues undis
turbed, although a feeling of uneasiness
prevails. ,'
Every representative of a foreign
power yesterday received two telegrams
from General Huerta. One of these was
for the diplomatic personally, bidding
him farewell and asking that he repose
confidence in President Carbajal; the
other was for the government repre
sented requesting support for the new
Mexican government. The single excep
tion was in the case of the United
States, for which the Brazilian minister
received no message.
Diplomatic Corps in Mexico City Present
Formal Address.
Mexico City, July 18. The members
of the diplomatic corps greeted Fran
cisco Carbajal, the new president of Mex
ico, in the national palace yesterday,
Bernardo De Cologan y Cologan, the
Spanish minister, acting as dean of the
corps, read the following address:
"We have come. Mr. President, to-day
to the national palace as the representa
tives of the foreign nations, in whose
names I have the high honor of address
ing you, with the grateful impression
and 'consoling hope that Mexico is at
last approaching that peace which is so
earnestly desired and which, too, is so
indispensable, and we hope it may be.
given to us soon to witness the cordial
embrace of brethren amid unbounded
joy, not unmixed with grief for those
who have perished and with solicitude to
staunch the country's wounds and to
pour into them the saving balm of con
cord and charity.
"You have come. Mr. President, to this
high post in a difficult moment, but we
feel sure that difficulties do not daunt
you. You have laid down the highest
post in the judiciary, which you attained
at an early age, your merits making up
for your youth, and if in the supreme
court you did your utmost to safeguard
your fellow citizens and all the inhabi
tants of the republic- in the enjoyment
of the constitutional guarantees, you will
not assuredly now, or as long as you
have the honor of occupying the supreme
magistracy of the country, omit any
honest endeavor or any sincere effort to
put an end at the earliest possible mo
ment to the griefs and sorrows of this
beautiful land, so that Mexico, entering
once for all on the path leading to nor
mal and lawful conditions, may occupy
in her upward and onward march the
prominent place which for so many rea
sons she is entitled to among the nation
of this continent.
"Such, Mr. President, are our fervent
and most cordial iltsires."
The address of Ihe Spanish minister
was approved beforehand by the diplo
matic corps so that there might be no
question as to the extent of recognition
which it implied. In reply the president
"I am truly gratified by this opportu
nity of meeting your excellencies in my
capacity as chief of state. I desire firt
of all to offer you testimony of my high
est esteem together with my respects to
the governments which you bo worthily
represent in this republic
"I have heard with profound satisfac
tion the generous desires which you ex
press for the re-establishment of peace
and the consequent union of all Mexi
cans, and you may rest assured that I
shall omit no effort to realize that pa
triotic purpose, which is the only reason
I had for abandoning the labors of the
judiciary and assuming the responsibil
ities of the position which I now oc
cupy. "Whatever may be the result of my
efforts I desire to declare that I am
not guided by any interested motive and
that my personality will in no case be
an obstacle to the realization of the ta?k

and which is so necessary to my coun

For Settlement of the Home
" ' Rule Crisis in Eng
So That He May Be in Close
Touch with Con
ferences London, July 18. King George, who
has been making great efforts to bring
about a settlement of the Irish home
rule crisis, decided this morning to post
pone until later in the day his proposed
visit to the great British fleet at Sput
head in order that he might be on hand
in London to receive early reports of
the developments in the conferences be
tween the party leaders.
It is understood that when the oppor
tune time arrives his majesty will throw
his influence toward the side looking for
an" amicable settlement.
The government ia believed by many
to have offered the Unionists, in case
thev acree to abandon their demand, a
clean cut of Ulster from the operation
of the home rule bill, to arrange that
the whole of Ulster, with the exception
of the county of Tyrome, which has a
great Catholic majority, should vote as
a single entity on the question of ex
clusion. The Unionists demand that Tyrome
shall be included and this caused a dead
lock. Premier Asquith and Augustine
Birrell, secretary of state for Ireland,
who are carrying on the negotiations in
behalf of the cabinet, remained in town
for the week end. The premier to-day
had another audience with King George,
but the rest of the cabinet rainisteis
scattered over the country for the week

And Three Other Wounded in Battle In
Chicago, July IS. With one detective
dead and three wounded as a result of a
revolver battle Thursday night in Chi
cago's vice district, officially reported
closed, police officials attempted yester
day to untangle the accounts of the
fatal affray between members of the de
partment. The dead detective, Stanley J. Birnes,
waa a member of the regular plain
clothes force. John C. Stoop, Birnes'
partner, was shot through the thigh. Jo
seph Merrill and Fred Amart, detectives
of the morals squad, were wounded less
seriously. James C. Carroll, who said
he waa an investigator and railway fire
man, also was wounded.
In the investigation by Chief of Police
Glcason two facta appeared to stand out,
that the killing and wounding of the
policemen were precipitated by a gang of
levee characters, and that many of the
volley of shots fired came from the
weapons in the hands of gangsters. It
was thought that several of the crowd
of vice district characters were wounded
and had been hidden by their friends.
The affray was possible because the
morals squad men, Merrill and Amert
and Carroll, who was not a member of
the force, did not recognize Birnes and
Stoop. Merrill and Amert had been po
licemen but a short time. They had
just raided a disorderly place and sent
a wagonload of prisoners to the station.
A gang of levee hangers-on followed and
hooted Merrill and Amert aa they
walked away from the place.
"Look at the stool pigeons," they
shouted. "Look out for the stool pig
eons." - -
Stones and bottles were thrown and
the detectives drew their revolvers.
Birnes and Stoop ran up to disperse the
"Look out, they have guns!" someone
cried. Then the shooting began. Merrill
declared that the first shot was fired by
a man in the crowd, who dodged behind
a woman. Another woman had just
been felled by a brick. Merrill said
that he emptied hia revolver at the
The clash of police activities In the
vice district was disclosed in the shoot
ing. Merrill and Amert were member
of Morals lnsecfor W. C. Dannenberg's
squad, which he had unexpectedly sent
into the levee district to make raids.
At the same time Second Deputy Chief
of Police Funkhouser had a detail in
the district for the same purpose, think
ing that Dannenherg was on the north
side of the city. Birnes and Stoop were
attached to the detective bureau, which
ih said to recur d with jealousy the ac
tivities of the special details.
The situation waa finally dominated
bv the uniformed police, who dispersed
the mob and held Merrill and Amert
as witnesses.

Left State Industrial School After Clos-ing-up
Burlington, July 18. News reached
tiie city yesterday of the escape of six
more girl from" the state industrial
school at .Vergennea. They left the in

Thursday evening. This makes a total
of eight girls to escape from the school
within a short time. The first two who
took sudden leave about three weeks

near the city were searched but no clue
was ever discovered. The six girls who
left Thursday night included two Bur
lington girls 'but they evidently did not
come to this city a they are not at their
homes. It is supposed that the six girls
separated and went various ways as a
crowd of six young girls traveling to
gether would be sure to attract atten
tion. A report camea from Rutland that
two girls were put off the train at the
station at that, city Thursday night as
they did not have their fares. Officers
from the industrial school were in Bur

Pittsburtr, July 18.-Blescher's single
and a home run by Doyle gave New
York a. 3 to I victory in a 21-inning
pitchers' duel between Marquard and
Adam. yesterday. It was the longest
game ever played in the National league.
From the close of the third inning until
the opening of the 21st inning, neither
team was able to score. So effective was
the pitching. Sharp fielding character
ized the work of both sides. The work
of Burns, Fletcher, Kelly and Mowry
was brilliant.
In the first inning Burns hit a three
bagger when two were out. He did not
score. In their half the Pirates scored
their only run when Menor waa hit by
the first ball pitched by Marquard, went
to second on Mowrey'a sacrifice and
seored on a three-base hit by Wagner.
The visitors tied the score in the third
on singles by Bescher and Doyle and
Burns' out. During the iiext 17 innings
each team often got men on the bases,
but no runs resulted. Bescher singled
in the 2lst after two were out. He
stole second. Doyle then sent his home
run blow to center, scoring himself and
Adams did not give a base on balls
and struck out six men. Marquard
walked two men and struck out two.

the Barro merchants and business men

having had the members of the party
as their guests for a few hours, begin

by the Rutland Business Men's associa

where a banquet was given in their hon
or Thursduy night and where they re
mained for the night, leaving on Friday
morning for Windtor and Woodstock on
their northward trip on the east side of
the state. . '
Leaving Woodstock in the early after
noon, the tourists made fast time and
arrived at Williamhtown gulf in the late
afternoon, there to be met by a party of
Barre business men who had gone there
in a dozen automobiles to act as escdrfc
into Barre. The Barre party had timed
their arrival at the gulf nicely and had
to wait only a comparatively few min
utes in the "depths of the famous tourist
spot ere the arrival of the first cars of
the visitors. ' ,
After welcome had been extended, the
automobiles of the Burlington men were
decorated with banners similar to those
bedecking the Barre cars and the run
toward Barre was started with part of
the visitors transferred to Barre cars
while pnrt of the Barre welcomcrs took
the vacated seats in the Burlington cars.
Coming out of the gulf ajid into Wil

accompanied with copious rainfall, but
the effect were little felt, as the auto

after which a run was made, from Gran

baek and entering this city by way of
Quarrr street. The party arrived in
Barre'at about 6:30 and the pathfinder
car led them around Elm street, Eastern
avenue, Park and Washington street.,
past the Burns monument, back to Main
street, where the visitor were given
visual evidence of Barre'a welcome in the
shape of a large banner strung across the
street and bearing the words: "Welcome.
Come Again."
Moving northward on Main street, the
party went to the granite manufacturing
plant of Jones Bios. Co., where a halt
was made while Hugh J, M. Jones of
the firm, with his assistants, showed the
visitors through one of the largest plants
of its kind in the world and although
the plant was not in operation some idea
of the magnitude of the business was
revealed. On leaving the, plant, the Barre
