U. S. Given Free Rein;
Must Assume Obligations
Washington, D. C Frequent ex
changes ami conferences between the
ambassadors and ministers in Wash
ington are tending to unite them on
line of conduct regarding Mexico
which, while conforming to the plans
of the United States, - involvea an un
derstanding as to obligations the
American government will be expect
ed to assume as a result of her atti
tude of non-interference.
So far this common understanding
has not taken the form of direct pres
sure, but the State department is kept
informed of the expectations of the
European powers. General informa
tion relates to the protection of the
vast financial interests which citizens
and subjects of the powers have in
Mexico, no disposition being exhibited
of an intention to bring in the politi
cal side of the question. In fact,
more than one of the diplomatic rep
resentatives here has informed the de
partment that his own government
was interested in preventing loss of
large material interests to its citizens.
and beyond that did not care what the
United States did in Mexico, so long
as it was informed of what was to be
done, so that it might take proper pro-
cautions for the protection of the lives
of its citizens.
The Red Cross authorized the State
department, through Vice Consul Sim-
pich at Nogales, bonora, to draw an

expenditure of this fund.

Washington, D. C. The survey
ship Eagle, at Gonaives, Hayti, has
been ordered to Port au Prince, a sail
of only a few hours, to observe the la

State department. The arship Petrel

Meager reports to the State depart
ment were summarized in this statement:
"The State department is informed
of the capture at Thomaseau of one
Celestin, a Haytian exile, who was the
promoter of the disturbance on the
Haytian frontier. Government troops
occupied Thomaseau on January 2, and
after the capture and execution of
several revolutionists quiet was restored.
'A spirit of unrest is said to pre
vail in the northern part of the coun
try. The town of Trou was seized by
rebels on January 4, and the rebels
were reported afterward to be march
ing on Cape Haytien, 20 miles away.
Port au Prince is quiet."
Union Pacific Carves
Baltimore & Ohio Pie
New York The executive commit
tee of the Union Pacific Railroad com
pany announced Thursday that it
would recommend the distribution
among its stockholders of the Balti
more & Ohio stock owned by the com
pany, par value $82,000,000, together
with $3 per share in cash. Estimated
on the present market value of Balti
more & Ohio stock, this is equivalent
to an extra dividend of 33 per cent.
The executive committee will lay
this recommendation before the board
of directors at its coming meeting. It
recommends, also, that if this distri
bution is carried into effect the regu
lar annual dividend be correspondingly
reduced; that is, from 10 per cent to
8 per cent. .
Carden Held Indiscreet.
Washintgon, D. C. It is understood
here that the transfer of Sir Lionel
Carden, British minister to Mexico
City, to Rio Janeiro, was to some ex
tent a sequel to the observations of
Sir William Tyrrell, private secretary
to Sir Edward Grey, British minister
of affairs, in Washington last Novem
ber. Sir William noted the impres
sion in official circles made by the re
ported interview with Sir Lionel in
which the ambassador was said to
have questioned the information of the
Canned Apple Advance Suspended.
Washington, D. C. The Interstate
Commerce commission his suspended
until July 8 the proposed advance in
the rate on canned apples in carloads
from Portland and other North Pacific
points to St. Louis, Chicago and other
points in the Middle West.
Washington, D. C Explaining his
judgment was not influenced by the
Mexican ' situation. Major General
Wood, chief of staff of the army, has
advised committees of congress that it
should appropriate $3,000,000 fur field
guns and ammunition for the regular
army and $3,000,000 for the militia.
"If you sent our troops into war as
they are now, without guns or ammu
nition, it would be absolute slaugh
ter," the general told the house mill
tary committee. "If called into the
field suddenly we should have to go
with a small allowance of ammunition
even for the guns in the hands of the
troops, and we should have neither
guns nor ammunition enough for ou
field artillery forces."
General Wood, in a written state
ment, said :
"We hive neither guns nor ammuni
tion sufficient to give any general
commanding any assurance of success
if attacked by an army of equal size
which is supplied with its proper
quota of field artillery.
It is my belief that no modern war
between first-class powers will last for
more than one year, and thus if pri
vate manufacturers are not encour
aged to manufacture ammunition for
our guns until after war is declared,
they will not be in a condition to do so
until after the war is finished, and the
supply of ammunition during the war
will be limited to what the arsenal can
turn out. If guns are not supplied on
the battlefield with the ammunition
which they can be reasonably expected
to use, they are not efficient, and
when guns have exhausted the ammu
nition supplied they are worse than
junk, for they must be protected by
"The War department believes that
in case or war with a tirst-class power
an army of 500,000 men will be need
ed to give this country any chance of
success against invasion, and that this
force will be needed at once. To make
it efficient it must be given its proper
quota of field artillery. To do this,
this ammunition must be on hand, for
it cannot be supplied after war is
AMERICA SENDS CHARITY
ALL OVER THE WORLD
Washington, D. C. Aid was ex
tended Friday to the distressed dis
tricts of Japan, Mexico, Bulgaria and
the United States by the American
Red Cross society.
Five thousand dollars was cabled to
the American ambassador at Tokio for

northern section of Japan, where a

$500 was dispatched to Choix, Sinaloa,
Mexico, where there is a food short

to Presidio, Tex., for the relief of the
Mexican wounded at Ojinaga. "

Thirteen Are Rescued;
23 Die in Shipwreck
New York Thirteen survivors are
accounted for out of the 38 men
aboard the tank steamer Oklahoma
.k.n.h. broke in two last Sunday
night in a storm off Barm-gat.
Another story of heroic rescue was
written beside the tale told by the
wireless that brought the first news of
the disaster. Until the Booth liner
Gregory, fresh from a voysge 2000
m!lua nn th Amazon, steamed into
port, the eight men taken off the Okln
homa by the steamship Bavaria were
believed to be the only ones saved.
But the Gregory had five more of the
shipwrecked crew that her officers had
dragged out of the sea.
The Oklahoma's death list now
stands at 25, and although her owners
swent the sea with wireless messages,
imploring all vessels to look out for
one of the steamer's boats that miKht
still be adrift, there was little hope
that more of the crew would be saved,
What little hope remained was based
on the fact that the men brought to
port by the Gregory said another life
boat besides theirs had been launched
from the sinking steamer. There was
little doubt, however, that this was
the boat sighted by the revenue cutter
Seneca, with three frozen bodies under
the thwarts. The other boat, which
carried the five survivors within reach
of the Gregory, contained only one
body when it was cast adrift after the
Of the Oklahoma's crew of 38, 11
manned the boat that reached the
Gregory, 19 took to the other boat and
eight stayed aboard to be saved by the
Bavaria. Of the larger boatload
probably all are lost Of the 11 in
the smaller boat, six were drowned
when the boat capsized 100 yards
away from the side of the Booth liner.
