Mexican Ambassador Says Kctolt
Has lU-en Insignificant.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 11. Declaring that
exaggerated accounts of the revolution
ary movement In Mexico had magnified
Its Importance In the minds of many
Americans, denor de la Uarra. Mexican
Ambassador to the United States, said
t.xlay that the trouble had at no tune
approached any significance.
Normal conditions, he said, reign
throughout the H.public. except In a
portion of Chihuahua, where the govern
ment forces are pursuing revolution
ist. ,
His statement, he added, was based on
oftV-tal advices from his Government,
which had kept him advised of the prog
ress of events, nhrrefore he could au
thoritatively say th lives and Interests
of natives and foreigners alike were se
cure. The Ambassador said that several revo
lutionary successes had been reported
and later denied, "which untrue state
ments." he said, have not only re
flected upon the reputation of Mexico as
a peace-loving country, but also have
had their effect upon Amerlcars with In
terests in Mexico and given rise to un
rest and a spirit of suspicion as to the
security of such Interests."
He said the government of General
Dlaa was absolutely secure and that
foreign lnteresta were In no danger.
Continuing, the Ambassador said:
The eedlttonariea are being dealt with
In a lawful and orderly manner. The
cases of all who are taken Into cus
tody because of their participation In the
rebellion are In the hands of the Mexi
can courts.
The revolt has demonstrated three
things. The strength of the government
and the spirit of Justice that guides the
people, the loyalty of the army and the
support by the people generally of a
course of peace and order, showing their
sstlsfactlon with present conditions."
The Ambassador said that not a soldier
had proved disloyal.

the spectators and contestants as to
who would win the Jeffery cup.
Mr. Kaddrrly Easy Winner.
At the time Miss JelTery retired from
the race. Mrs. Kadderly was leading
by a comfortable margin and would
have scored a victory In any event.
Immediately after the "century"
swim the novice race for women, which
consisted of a swim of one length of
the tank was held and eight water
sprites competed.
Mrs. A. Glebljch proved the surprise
In this event lor she took the lead at
the start and held it consistently for
the entire distance, vinnlng by three
yards from Mrs. Harry Younif. who
finished second, a yard and a half ahead
of Mrs. Walter Holm. Mrs. W. P.
Strandborg was fourth.
Miss Frances Jeffery with si finely
executed dives carried the first honors
in this event. The diving; and fancy
swimming events were Judged by
Frank E. Harmer and W. J. Petrain
and In both events It was difficult to
choose between Miss Jeffery. who won
the dive and Mrs. Frank E. Watklns,
who won tne swim. Miss Jeffery. by
making six perfect dives, scored over
Mrs. WatkliiS. whose side dive was
rather awkwardly executed. However,
she executed the other five leaps
equally as well as did Miss Jeffery.
Mrs. Watklns Victorious.
Mrs. Watklns was victorious In the
fancy swimming event because she
perfected the back stroke to better
advantage than had Miss Jeffery. Miss
Grace O'Xell. on of the most willing
swimmers among the women of the
club, took third place in both events
and that she did no better Is due to the
over-anxiety on her part. With a
little more experience this young girl
will prove a most formidable opponent
In future contests. Miss O'Xeil is a
strong willing swimmer but she lacks
the style and execution which marks
the efforts of her more experienced
Mrs. Harry Kadderly. winner of the
first annual Winter swim for the
Women's Annex Multnomah Athletic
Club, la on of the most enthusiastic
devotees of aquatic sports. She Is
the largest member of the swimming
class and because of this very few of
the spectators thought she had a
ohanc against the trim Miss Jeffery
and the lithe Miss O'Xell.
However, Mrs. Kadderly dived grace
fully Into the water at the command of
the starter, and by the use of a strong
breast stroke got under headway rap
Idly. She completed the first lap In 29
seconds, and changed to the side racing
stroke soon after the start. She main
tained a systematic style throughout
the race, and finished strong and fresh.
Her victory was enthusiastically ap
plauded and later she waa presented
with the Oliver King Jeffery Cup by
Ex-Senator Fulton, she was given an
ovation which was followed by ths
Multnomah yell.
Similar scenes were enacted when
Ex-Senator Fulton presented the prises
won by Mrs. Watklns. Mrs. Gleblsch
and Miss Jeffery.
Various Strokes Win.
The fancy swimming event, which
went to Mrs. Frank E. Watklns, con
sisted of breast stroke, side stroke,
bsck stroke and Imitation of the por
poise. Just after the women's contests a
BO-ysrd go-as-you-plesse swim for the
men waa held and It was announced
that this event was for a special prize
contributed by the women's annex.
H. E. Seymour surprised everyone
by defeating Art Allen In one of the
most sensational races held In any tank.
The effort really deserved a better
trophy, but the girls Insisted on having
their Joke and after the real prizes
were presented to the women Mr. Sey
mour waa handed a brass medallion
bigger than any policeman's badge of
Frank E. Watklns, winner of a
special" diving event for the men, was
similarity treated, though the prize was
a tin cup.
Over 100 guests arrived here from
Portland, Astoria. Seaside and other

Army Colonel Who Is Building Pan
ama Waterway Has No Ambition
to Be Governor of Zone, but
Would Complete Enterprise.
Dee. 11. (Special.) If Col. George W.
Goethsls has bis way about it the Pan
ama Canal Zone after its completion will
become the scene of a great business
enterprise with Uncle Sam as the man
aging director.
In connection with the same Idea. Col
onel Goethals haa a plan for the revision
of a charter of a government of the
Canal Zone. That Idea Involves one man
power with absolute governmental and
business control of Government affairs
on the Isthmus.
In connection with this Idea it is ru
mored on the Canal that James A. Taw
ney. of Minnesota, chairman of the
House Committee on appropriations, may
be the next Governor of the Carl Zone
In place of the present Governor That
cher, of Kentucky. Mr. Tawney has had
charge of all the appropriations given
the Canal Commission, and is credited
here with having aaved th Government
mlllMns of dollars by his careful prun
ing of the appropriation.
Mr. Tawney smiles at the rumor, but
has not denied It. Hlo term In Con
gress expires with the presmt session,
and his retirement fro it Congress, due to
his recent defeat in tho primaries of the
First Minnesota District, would leave
blm available for such a governmental
position. It is regarded as significant
hero that the gossip concerning his pos
sible appointment started Immediately
after the visit of President Taft. and
ble conference with Colonel Goethals.
Colonel Goethals plan to Inaugurate a
big business enterprise on the Canal
after Its completion, Is based on the as
sumption that the Panama Canal for
a number of years will not be a paying
investment. Its initial cost of J375.00n.000
will necessitate a large return to pay a
reasonable Interest on the Investment.
The proposed fortification plans will In
volve another large expenditure and the
necessity of maintaining troops to man
those fortifications will be still another
item of expense. Th maintenance and
operation of the Canal wlU'run into blgb
Colonel Goethals' plans to utilize the
plant the Government now haa on the
Canal. The Panama railroad will con
tinue as a Government property. The
big machine shops of Gorgona, will be
maintained; the waterway will be the
clearing house for a large portion of the
commerce of the world. Naval stations,
snd probably a drydock will be estab
lished at one or both entrances of the
It Is these conditions that Colonel Goe
thals purposes taking advantage of. His
plan would involve an unique experiment
on the part of the Government. In its
ownership of the Panama railroad it
has already established a precedent for
the Government ownership of railroads.
If the plan of Colonel Goethals could be
adopted It would be further committed
to the policy of direct governmental In
terest in a business enterprise. .This Is
the way Colonel Goethals explains his
Ths commercial Interests of the United
States never demanded ths expenditure of
the Immune sum of money that is required
to build the canal.
The voyage of the Oregon called the at
tention of the American people to the Im
portance of the Isthmian canal waterway as
a military asset- That may not be th
general lmpreeslon. but It la th fact, never
theless. I would have the Government of the
United Slates Inaugurate a blc commercial
enterprise here: ships passing through this
canal will need repairs and supplies; w
have our machine shops, and we probably
will have docks. I would sell them coal,
oil. and all other necessary supplies. This
Government could make a protlt on these
articles, and we would have the world's
commerce as our customers. These profits
would help defray the expense of the canal.
We have the facilities here'and why not use
Referring to his one-man idea of gov
ernment in the Canal Zone ofter the
completion of the Canal, Colonel Goe
thals said:
"I am not speaking for myself. I
would not care to remain after the
completion of the Canal, because I would
not want to spend all my life In the
Isthmus. But It Is the only sensible
form of government for an Institution
of this character. Whoever heard of a
big business enterprise with several dif
ferent heads necessitating conference
and submissions, of plans before they
were carried out?"
