ble Makar Question of War
Left to Congrats.
Washington, Dee. 2. Secretary of
State Koox late today returned the
passports of Felipe Rodriguez, charge
d'affaires of the Niearaguan legation,
with a letter scathingly denouncing
the Zelayan administration of the gov
ernment of Nicaragua.
Tho letter is definitely declared to
represent tho views of President Taft
and b about as plain spoken as any
thing emanating from tho state de
partment In many years.
The extraordinary feature of the let
ter Is that It seems to evlneo an inten
tion on tho part of tho United State
to bold President zeiaya personally re
sponsible for the alleged torturo and
execution of the Americans, Cannon
and Grace, and exhibits the unique sit
uation of one government holding tho
chief executive of another practically
as a common malefactor.
Zelaya is branded as a violator of
solemn international conventions, a dis
turber of national and International
peace, a tyrant whose administration
has been a blot upon the name of good
Secretary Knox virtually announces
the recognition of the Niearaguan rev
olutionists, declares it to be the con
viction of the United States that tho
revolution represents the sentiments of
a majority of the Niearaguan people,
and that thero Is evidently no respon
sible government with which tho United
States can deal.
Ho therefore announces that all par
tic will be held accountable for their
aotions as affecting the interests of
Americans and the peace of Central
lie further informs Benor Rodriguez
that, whllo ho has lost his diplomatic
quality, he may atill serve as an "un
official channel of communication with
the faction which he is regarded as rep
resenting." This brings the crisis as near to the
status of war as it could be brought by
executive action without a definite dec
laration by congress, which will con
vene next Monday. Mr. Knox 'a letter
in all but so many words makes it plain
that the action represents the wish and
attitude of all the Central American
States' with the single exception of
Honduras, which is regarded ere as en
tirely dominated by Zclayt

Alleged Attempt to Smuggle Jewels Into
Country Leads to Loss.
New York, Dec. 2. The Chesbrough
pearl necklace was seized today by
Collector Loeb, who appraises its 312
units, with the duty added, at IW.oiw.
The owner is Mrs. Fremont B. Ches

man of Detroit and Boston.
Two customs inspectors swear they

Chesbrough 's trunks, but the pearls
were missing. According to Ches
brough. the Jewels were being held to
his order in Toronto, Canada. Collector
Loeb says that he insisted upon pos
session, but was given what proved to
be an imitation.
He continued to press the govern
ment's claim, and on July 28 he ob
tained the original. He has held them
since, pending proof that they had
never been in this country. Such proof
has not been forthcoming, according to
Mr. Loeb, and today the neklaee was
seized as n preliminary to action against

Newport News, Vo., Nor. 30 In

built by the Newsport News Shipbuild

Coal oil was used as fuel. The ship

San Francisco Health Board Wins Fight
San Francisco, Dec 3. Aw ordinance
framed by the board of health, imposing
regulations upon persons afflicted with
tuberculosis, was passed by tho board
of supervisors yesterday.
Under it physicians are required to
report within SM hour every person
coming under their notice who shows
symptoms of tuberculosis. A complete
record of every caso will be kept by the
When a case is reported, it Is mado
the duty of the physician to make im
mediate report if the patient vacates
the quarters he waa then occupying, or
it (hero is no physician, then the duty
devolves on the landlord. Tho apart
ments must bo disinfected and renovated
before they can again bo occupied. The
cleaning or renovating must be done nt
the expense of tho landlord, and If it Is
not dono to the satisfaction of the
health authorities, then tho following
notice will be posted at tbo door of tho

ease. These apartments bavo been oc
cunied by a consumptive, and may bo
infected. They must not bo occupied
until tho order of the health officer,

Tho most radical featuro of the new

that his preseneo thero menaces his

ing tbey would soon present a demand

in part as follows:
"The votes in the various districts

Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, and
soon will be presented to all eastern
railway companies. Everything pos
sible will be dono to avoid a strike.
Though the Switchmen's union of

Sineo this project has been agitated
it has also become known that a large
eastern syndicate Is quietly taking op

lands will all bo similarly treated. The
