(Special to The Evening News.)
Mexico City, Dec. 31. Americans
have been misled by biased reports
which have been constructed out of
whole cloth concerning alleged
crimes and defalcations and the like
in Central America, but feel that
Blnce I have been given a chance to
state my case that they will bejzin
to understand the true Plate of af
fairs, " said Zelaya to a United I'n-sa
representative tcday, "I have i'n
emins, but also many frknds in the
United States, and the latter (Irmly
believe, -no matter wnat fault may
be found jith my nolicv, that the
notion of Knox was far from a proper
diplomatic course.". Zelaya laughed
at the story that he had plundered
the treasury, and declared that iin
the contrary he hnd pnid a $50,000
emergency claim out of hlB- own poc
ket. Zelaya was equally undisturb
ed by the rumors of the plan to as
sassinate him. A sub-secretary of
foreign affairs dented today that Ze
laya was virtually a prisoner, and
said the deposed president might do
as he pleased, and that he . might
spend millions in building palaces,
' talk, gamble, be merry, simp and live
In Mexico without fepr of molesta
tion. ,

Medfoid, Or., Dec. 31. With the
last day of the old year Sllns J. Day,
the oldest pioneer of Jackson county,
passed from this life Into the great
beyond. Death came to the aged pi
oneer at his homo in Jacksonville at
on early hour this morning. Mr. Pny
has lived on t'le place where he died
continuously since ljj49, and was :iie
of the very first men to reach Jack
sonville at the time gold was discov
ered ihere in that year. Judge Day
was one of the best known men in
southern Oregon, and at the time of
his dsaih was S4 years of age.
Two Distinct Shocks Occurred Harly
Yesterday Morning.
Two slight earth tremorB were felt
in Portland at 4:23 p. m. yesterday,
vays today's Oregonlan. The Inten
sity of the shocks was not great
enough to dd damage. Residents In
various sections of tho city reported
that they were somcwhafc alarmed by
the consecutive tremors. The compass
of the disturbances was confined to
Portland and its suburbs In tho Wtln
mette valley. Heports from Ashlmd.
Mnrshfield, Salem, Astoria, linker
City, Or., and Hnnuiam, Wash., were
thnt no disturbances were felt at
those points.
" John McN'ulty, nautical expert In
charge of the local branch of the
United States Hvdrographlc service
assigned the quakes to "gravitational
attraction." The highest tides of the
ea3on will be registered today. Thi"
fact, combined with the proximity of
the earth to the sun and the distance
of the moon, add probability to the
1 henry.
, The shocks were felt with greater
force bv the occupants o' the upper
lofts of downtown office buildings. A
few seconds intervened between the
tremors. The second was more force
ful and continued severel seconds.
Many who t.-cre observant of the phe
nomena assorted that the buildings
swayed to and fro. Others averred
that the buildings "bounced" upward
and downward. Occupants of dwel
lings on Portland Heights apparently
felt the vibration fce-nK. nisbfs clnt
tored on sb'dvs and the Ftntd coun
tenances' of family relatives that
