Official Notice Is Taken of
Condition of Anarchy Pre
. vailing in Republic.
HOME CAPITALS NOTIFIED
Britain, France and Spain Chiefly
Concerned; Carranza General De
nies lie Executed Prisoners
and Women Camp Followers.
WASHINGTON, April 16. All the
mBassies and legations in Washington
representing- countries which have con
siderable interest in Mexico have re
ceived from the international commit
tee of Mexico City, it was learned Thurs
day, affidavits testifying to the exist
ence of conditions of anarchy in Mex
ico, and reciting1 specific cases of abuse
of foreign residents.
Most of the affidavits are directed
to the British, French and Spanish
embassies. Examination at some of the
embassies has disclosed the fact that
in many cases the allegations have
been confirmed by advices already re
ceived from Mexico City. Consequently
the diplomats have deemed the affi
davits worthy of immediate transmittal
to their home governments.
Full Corroboration Obtained.
In at least- one case, also, copies of
the papers, where allegations have been
confirmed by the embassy's advices,
have been laid before the State Depart
ment as a matter of information.
Secretary Bryan said some time ago
that ho had been informed by some
agencies in Mexico City that these
documents were in transit to Washing
ton and that they exaggerated the
actual conditions in many cases.
Therefore, the embassies have been
careful to make sure that such of the
communications as were submitted to
the State Department were fully cor
roborated by reports from their own
diplomatic agencies and consuls in
Kxecntion of Prinonera Denied.
Serme of the affidavits relating to
the mistreatment of foreign women and
tho .robbing and beating of foreigners
were made public recently at El Paso,
Tex., on the arrival at that place of
the agent of the international com
mittee. The Carranza agency here gave out
n statement tonight saying General
Herrera 'had telegraphed from Nuevo
Laredo a denial of reports that he had
executed prisoners and women camp
followers after the recent battle at
Huisaehito. The only man executed,
the statement said. was Narciso
Romero, who was condemned for hav
ing set fire to the town of Candela.

I50MEKO SAYS "ALL HUMBUG'
Carranza Minister to Japan Says
Huerta Is Responsible.
SEATTLE, Wash., Aprrl 16. "That's
all humbug,'"' said Colonel M. Perez
Romero, recently appointed - Carranza
minister to Japan, and brother of Mrs.
Francisco- iladero, widow of the late
President of Mexico, last night, when
shown a copy of General Huerta's state
ment disclaiming responsibility for the
death of Mr. Madero. '
"Laying aside the fact that he got
into power by treason, and disregarding
the question of who actually shot Presi
dent Madero, the fact remains, said
Colonel Romero, "that General Huerta
was in power and could command the
armed foroes of the country. President
Madero was his prisoner, and while in
his power was assassinated. How
Huerta can attempt to evade responsi
bility for his death is inconceivable.
"I was an eyewitness to all the hap
penings of those tragic days except for
seven hours from 10 o'clock at night
until 5 o'clock - in the morning, when
Mr. Madero was killed At -5 o'clock 1
traced the automobile to the peniten
tiary and there saw pools of blood be
hind the prison and was told by per
sons coming away that there the Presi
dent had been shot by the soldiers.
"These facts have all been gone over
time and again. It is useless for Gen
eral Huerta to disclaim responsibility.
He swore to support the Madero gov
ernment. He committed treason to
overthrow that government. These are
facts. His statement is scarcely worth
. Colonel 'Romero left Vera Cruz a
month ago, visiting the Carranza lega
tions in Cuba and Canada before coming
to Seattle, where he arrived today. He
will sail tomorrow on the Japanese
liner Shidzuoka Maru for Japan, to take
up his diplomatic duties. He expects to
remain' there indefinitely.
Colonel Romero said the constitution
alists were not worrying about General
Huerta's presence in the United States.
"We do not look for any further
trouble from him," he said. "He is wise
enough to keep out of Mexico."

Olinto Lombardi. bass, last night, on
the stage of the Baker Theater, during
a rendition of the opera, and so mag
nificent was the portrayal it was one
of the best witnessed in this city in
recent years. Indeed, it would be dif
ficult to name one basso in America
who sings and plays Mephistofele
with more compelling finish and artis
tic effect than Lombardi. Such a well
balanced part grips hold of the imagi
nation and refuses to be shut out. Al!
the other artists also did splendid
work, and altogether the presentation
of "Faust" is the best so far given in
this city by the Italian Grand Opera
Ingar's' Worlc Ipressive.
Ingar, tenor, made an impressive
Faust, and his well-placed, sweet, ring
ing voice was heard to splendid ad
vantage. It did not matter if the call
came from stirring dramatic effect,
where one might try conclusions to
drown out the playing of the orchestra,
but Ingar refused to strain his voice
or "force" it. It had always the same
agreeable quality, the same even flow
of "bel canto." Even in the first
duet with Mephistofele. Ingar was not
hurrieS or seized with a desire to
"drown out" the basso. Ingar re
mained, within his place on the stage
and was the artist. His singing ot
"Salva Dimora" was thrilling.
Lombardi was almost terrifying in
his -sneering cynicism in the scene
where the villagers disarm his magic
on them. He bent his supple sword
double, and literally seemed to grind
it with his teeth. Lombardi was an
ardent, experienced sweetheart of
Martha and hereby by his byplay was
most amusing. .His immense voice wt.s

all is worth seeing; Hisdrinking song,
"Iio Dell," was superb.

Invariably play the part of Siebel, the
rustic sweetheart or Marguerita, with
a contralto wearing male attire and
rarely with a tenor. Madame Cecchetti
made an impressive feiebel, and sang
the part with spirit and good judgment.
The part of Martha was presented
with a good deal of quiet humor by
Miss Mackie. She gave valuable sup

The opera was well staged, and the
scenery admirable. The garden scene
was impressive, and the bush, blazing

was used. Faust, Marguerita and
Mephistofele sang the impressive trio

charge by Federal officers in St. Louis
since the Harrison anti-narcotic drug
law became effective, March 1.
Mrs. Clark told a reporter after her
arrest that she "intended taking out a
physician's license soon."
She said that she learned indirectly
of the Federal law making it a peni
tentiary offense to dispense morphine,
cocaine and other narcotic drugs with
out a physician's license, and that she
obtained the Federal license so that she
might keep a store of the drugs In her
home to use in connection with her
work as a "physician."
She is not a graduate in medicine,
nor did she ever attend a medical
school, she said.
She said that she has three children,
all married. She is the leader of a
Bible class and is prominent in other
activities of a St. Louis church that, has
a wealthy congregation, she eaid.
Deputy Collector Ouin discovered
that Mrs. Clark was purchasing for
bidden drugs at the store of A. A. Flan

made regular purchases at the place.
She obtained about 85 grains in all,
the warrant alleges.

Mrs. Clark.' -
