Secretary Gravely Tells How
He Planned and Pared to
Save Nation $120.
FOOTMAN PRIVATELY PAID
Government Carefully Recompensed
for Time Consumed by Messenger,
but Own Salary Goes On
During iccture Tours.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
in gton, April 18. William J. Bryan,
economizer, stands about as well, with
public men at Washington as does Wil
liam J. Bryan, diplomat. This is equiv
alent to saying that in both capacities
the Secretary of State is regarded by
all save a. few as a joke.
To the long- Illuminating list of items
chalked up against the Secretary of
State is now added his testimony be-
1 fore the House committee on appropri-
1 nttona Via tnlH hnw Ha hnrl saVRd
the Government $120 a year in the
State Department. In all seriousness,
the Secretary of State explained in de
tail to the committee how, after much
care and manipulation and figuring,
he had reduced the running expenses
of the State Department $120 a year.
Secretary Tells How It Was Dome.
"The way we did it was this," said
Secretary Bryan. "The $900 clerkships
have been hard to fill, and we de
cided to ask that 19 $900 clerkships
be raised to $1000, making a total in
crease of $1800. Then, in order to pre
vent an increase in the appropriation,
we cut off one of these clerks. There
were 19 and we made it 18, which saved
$900, and reduced the Increase to $900.
Then we saved $500 on rent, which re
duced the Increase to $400, and then
we saved $520 on the estimate for fur
niture, which gave us a. net reduction
of $120, and the rest of it we left as
Having explained thus, the Secretary
of State sat back with the supreme sat
isfaction of a man who had saved the
Federal Treasury from ruin.
It was In the course of this same
testimony that Secretary Bryan dis
played such a keen desire to protect
the Government against graft. It has
been the custom for years for the Gov
ernment to employ and pay a driver for
the Secretary of State, also providing
the Secretary with horses and a car
riage. Custom also has recognized the
right of the Secretary of State to detail
a messenger from the State Depart
ment to act as footman, whenever the
Secretary or his wife desired to drive
about and make or return calls.
Footman Paid Privately.
Secretary Bryan defended the right
of a Secretary of State to have a foot
man as well as driver on his official
carriage, but 'he said It was not just
for the Secretary to take a State De
partment messenger, on pay for serv
ices in the Department, and require
him while receiving pay as a messen
ger to act as a footman. Therefore, he
had undertaken to pay this messenger
for his time while serving as footman
on the official carriage, and had de
ducted from the messenger's official
pay the amount which he had paid out
of his own pocket. In other words, the
messenger's pay remained fixed but
for the time he acted as footman he
was paid by the Secretary, and the Gov
ernment paid him only when he was
acting as messenger in the State De
Secretary Bryan omitted to tell the
committee whether he will deduct from'
his own salary the amounts paid him
for time when he has been on the Chau
tauqua circuit or when away from
Washington delivering political or oth
er addresses. Thus far. Secretary
Bryan is understood to have drawn his
full salary. .

While predictions as to what will
happen were numerous, there were
some officials high In the councils of
the Administration who believed Huerta
would not yield, but would force the
United States to land marines or oc
cupy coast towns. With the act of
American aggression completed, the of
ficials believe Huerta will attempt to
appeal to the patriotism of all factions
In Mexico to repel the invader. Some
observers foresee In such a move an
embarrassing situation for the con
Etitutionalist chief, which, they think,
might produce dissension and a possi
ble disintegration of the rebel forces.
OfflPiala Resolutely Calm.
Though showing their anxiety abou
the situation, high officials settled
down to await Huerta's answer with
resolute calm. Both President Wilson
and Secretary Bryan attended the wed
ding late today of Chairman Flood, of
the House foreign affairs committee,
and Miss Anna V. Portner. of Appo
Secretary Daniels, in Cleveland, O.,
arranged to return here tomorrow, and
while the President is at White Sul
phur Springs, Secretary Bryan will
keep him informed of developments.
Official business was interrupted at
the White House, callers being turned
away with the statement that "grave
business" was being considered.
It was 2 o'clock before the ultimatum
to Huerta had been put into cipher and
dispatched from Washington. Offi
: ciale estimated it would be delivered
; in Mexico City early tonight. Allow
ing time for its consideration by
Huerta and his advisers, it was not be
lieved an answer would be ready before
late at night at the earliest and could
' not reach here until some time to

In the meantime the aides at the
' Jsavy Department went into secret con
: ference, completing plans for the move

.' Admiral Victor Blue, Acting Secretary
of the Navy, forwarded to Rear-Admiral
. Badser, on the flagship Arkansas, at
the head of the fleet speeding to Mex

agreed, however, that the force now at

Including time for ciphering and de
ciphering, an answer was not expected
here before early Monday morning, as
suming that Huerta takes the full time
for indicating his intentions.

Huerta's continued evasiveness and
his desperate condition, both from
financial and military point of view, on
account of the recent rebel Tictories,
led many high officials to believe he
would defy the Unted States and take
chances on the consequences, in which
the national spirit may be aroused,

Rebels Promise Status Quo.
The Mexican constitutionalist repre

with Secretary Bryan today, inquiring

would not under any -circumstances
unite with Huerta, but would maintain
a status quo In the territory they con
trolled if the United States took no of
fensive action against them.
Ambassadors and Ministers, too, were
eager to learn the Intent of the Araerl
can Government and were supplied with
Information at the State Department.
A summary of the developments of the
day was cabled to all American lega
tions and embassies for the informa
tion of foreign governments.
In the meantime the Atlantic fleet
continues steaming southward to Mexi
can ports. No crders vere issued to
The determination to force a definite
reply from Huerta, ending tolerance of
his dilatory tactics, was emphasized
trongly in the day's developments. It
was a day of action In official circles,
reminiscent to many of .the scenes of
1898, for at no time since then has a
President threatened to ask Congress to
use the Army and Navy to enforce a
President SasacMl la Haste.
The knowledge that the Mexican sit
uation had reached a turning point
spread throughout, the National capi
tal. For two hours, while clerks de
oiphered a long message from Charge
u bhaughnessy, a half hundred cor
respondents waited in the corridors of
the State Department for an Inkling
of Its contents. Then Secretary Bryan
sent for Secretary Tumulty. President
Wilson had gone to play golf, expect
ing no developments until noon. Mr.
Bryan and Mr. Tumulty briefly con
ferred and then hurried to a waiting
automobile and were soon speeding to
ward the Virginia hills, where the
President was playing.
in the meantime the White House
had telephoned to the Golf Club and a
secret service man ran out to the ninth
hole and communicated a message,
The President abandoned the links and
got Into his big motor car. On the
way toward Washington he met Sec
retary Bryan and Mr. Tumulty. The
party sped back to the White House.
Huerta Described as Obstinate.
Officials at the State Department
meanwhile had described Huerta's
message as "inconclusive." Though the
text of Huerta's answer was not made
public, other officials described the
dictator's attitude as "very obstinate'
and insisting on a simultaneous salute.
Naval officers said there was no such
thing as a "simultaneous salute."
Apologies are given in a salute of 21
guns fired at Intervals of ten seconds,
after the completion of which the party
offended returns the salute.
That Huerta had merely "suggested
and "inquired" also was revealed and
officials found they had interpreted hi
previous "inquiries" and "suggestions
as promises. -
When the President reached th
White House, Postmaster - General
Burleson was waiting. Acting Chair
man Shlvely, of the Senate foreign
relations committee arrived a few
minutes later. They studied the luerta
message only a few minutes and were

SAN FRANCISCO, April 18. In com
pany with the Atlantic fleet the Pa
cific fleet is making ready for action.
With 300 marines aboard, the cruiser
South Dakota is steaming to the Mare
lland Navy-Yard from the Bremerton
yard for further orders. There her
complement of marines will be merged
with 600 In the barracks at Mare

transshipped by the Collier Jupiter,
which received orders today to sail for
San Diego, where there is waiting a tor
pedo flotilla. Work Is being rushed on
the cruiser Cleveland, which will be
discharged from drydock tomorrow.
Although no orders have been re
ceived yet, the supposition Is that the
fleet will rendezvous at some Mexican
port not yet named with those ships al
ready on duty in Southern waters.
From the fact that marines are carried
it is supposed that the occupation of
some one of the west Mexican ports
is regarded as possibility.
