Mexico City, Saturday, May
22. (Correspondence of the A.
P.) For the last three days the
sessions of the so-called nation
al convention in the chamber of
deputies building have been
scenes of disorder. Not only the
galleries, but at times the floor
and speaker's tribune have been
beset by hordes of hungry men,
women and children.
The shouts of "we want
corn," overcame all others, and
even the show of bayonets and
the Tiring of the soldiers over
the heads of the mob have not
checked their vain and piteous
search for food. The Red Cross
has been kept busy carrying off
women and children and in
some cases old men, crushed or
overcome in these manifesta
tions. Ten thousand gathered out
side of the chamber today and
nearly "00 were carried off on
stretchers. Acting President
General Garcia appeared before
the convention delc-pates and a
portion of the mob to tell them
that the treasury was empty,
the fields laid waste by the con
tending revolutionaries and
that the only hope for the com
ing winter was that all Mexi
cans lay down their arms and
begin the tilling of the fields.
Repeatedly the crowd answered
Iiim. saying "give us corn. Our
women and children are dying
of hunger. Give us corn."
A comparatively small supply
was obtained from the foreign
relief committee and this as
suaged the wants of the day.
Crops are short, and in all
but five of the twenty-seven
states of Mexico there is abso
lute want, with the new har
vest many months away and
mythical because to a large ex
