Washington, June 5. General Car
rnnza was believed here today to be
deluying his answer to the "A. B. C."
mediators' invitation to the rebels to
take part in the American-Mexican
peace negotiations until he sees wheth
er or not the steamship Antilla is al
lowed to land the cargo of war muni
tions with which it sailed from New
York for Tampico. It was reported
that the mediators were highly indig
nant because the Antilla was allowed
to sail, but Secretary of State Bryan
Tefused to discuss the matter.
Federals May Blockade.
As to what course would be adopted
with reference to the Antilla on its ar
rival at Tampico there was much spec
ulation. It was understood that Com
modore Azneta,' commanding the Mex
ican federal gunboats Frogrosso, Bravo
(i net Zargosa, would attempt a block-
ode, preventing the ship from -entering
the harbor.
There was no question that though
the Antilla was allowed to, clear from
Kew York before the latest embargo
became effective, the administration
was unwilling to have its cargo reach
,-tlie rebels and leaving a free hand to
Azueta would be one way of accom
plishing this. '
May Resume Hostilities.
Nevertheless, Admiral Mayo's pres
ent instructions are to prevent the fed
erals from blockading the port. Un
less they are countermanded, it was ex
pected he would warn the three gun
boats away and non-compliance on Azu
eta 's part, it was said, might mean a
resumption of hostilities. .
Carranza Makes Appointments.
Torreon, Mex., June 5. General Car
Tanza was reported here today to have
decided on the following appointments
to posts in his provisional cabinet:
State Eafael Zuburan Capmany,
Promotion of industry Fernando
War Felipe Angeles.
Communications Ignace Bonillas. :
Justice Eliso Arredondo.
Foreign Luis Cabrera.
Interior Felicitaa Villnreal.

of agriculture and education, it was
said had not ben decided.
A report received from General Na.
tora today said fighting had been in
progress for several days in the out
nkirts of Zacatecas and that the rebels
had been uniformly victorious. Ho
placed his own losses at 100 and the
federals' at four times as many.
The railroad south of Zacatecas, he
added, was hopelessly wrecked, so it
would be impossible for .the federals
to escape in that direction.

President Receives Message.
Annapolis, June 5. An important
mcssniro from the "A. B. C." media
tors was recoived today by President
Wilson on board the yacht Mayflower,
on his way to attend the graduation
exorcises at the naval academy here.
It was believed to bo a protest at
the inaction by the authorities which
permitted the steamship Antilla to
leave New York with ammunition for
the Mexican rebels at Tampico.
One Burmise was that the communi
cation contained a request from the
mediators that the Antilla be stopped
on its voyage.
Presidential Private Secretary Tu
multy would not discuss the matter.
It was known positively that the mes-
sace was from the mediutors and tnat

A class of 154 was to be graduated
at the naval academy. Many of its
members were slated to leave at once
for Mexican waters.
Mediators Not Worrying.
By Fred S. Ferguson.
Niagara Falls, Ont., June 5. The
A. B. C." mediators were not worry
ing today over General Carranza 's de
lay in replying to their invitation to
the rebels to take part in the American
Mexican peace noeeotiations.
In fact, it was stated that they had
expected the constitutionalist leader
would take some time to think the sit
uation over, and considered it natural
that he should do so. They continued
to hope he would agree to join the con
ference under the terms they suggest
ed. In the meantime there were fur
ther exchanges of views between the
mediators and the American and Mex
ican envoys.
Some persons in close touch with the
negotiations and with conditions in
Mexico were not quite so optimistic,
as the mediators, however. They ques
tioned whether the troops actually in
the field under Generals Natera, Villa
and Obregon would recognize his au
thority to grant an armistice.
Ignoring the Antilla matter, mem
bers of the rebel junta here said they
thought Carranza 's delay in answering
the "A. B. C." mediators was due to
his desire to perfect his provisional
government first. He was on his way
from Durango to Saltillo today to do
The annual closing exercises at the
State School for the Blind last night
drew an unusually large number of
visitors. All available space was filled
and still a hundred or more eould not
gain entrance.
The program was a splendid one and
was excellently carried out in all its
parts. As the clover work of the pupils
is seen, and the fact that all their
knowledge must be received through
the senses of hearing and touch is re
membered, the wonder of it all is over
whelming. Nor it this wondler confined
to the pupils alone, but the infinite
patience of the teachers whose lives are
devoted to these afflicted ones, and the
wonderful results they obtain call for
hiirh praise and profound admiration.
Their work was illustrated last night
in the perfect drilling shown by their
charges, and the fine rendering of the
entire program. The opening number,
a chorus, "Pond Lilies", gave pleasing
intimation of good things to. follow,
and its promise was fully kept; for as
number followed number, there was no
falling off from the hign standard set
A piano duct by Anna Dueilall, ami
Buell Field, was heartily applauded,
A selection br Ellen Fuston and Kose
Fosnot "The Fairies Tea", was one of
the treats of the evening. The latter
has an especially sweet voice and cer
tainly a- most captivating presence. She
was eraceful as a fawn and had the
stage presence and confidence of a pro
fessional. They were compelled to
answer an encore and even then the
audience wanted more. Master Wn
dall Helm on the piano interpreted
"Hesitation" and did it splendidly.
Nell Roberts aud Mareuerite Flw3r
irave a vocal duet charmingly, and Pro
fessor Roberts gave "Impromptn No,
3'', from Taylor, in his usual inasterr.ii
After this came the main feature t f
the evenins. the cantata "The Moon
Queen." It was given by nine little
folks in "the Parts, with a chorus of
"clouds", "breezes", "raindrops
"sunbeams" and "stars", and
moved from Btart. to finish as smoothly
as if put on hy a regular company, and
showed again tne pationce, perserver
anco and love of the work as well ns
the children, that moved the teachers
to perfect them ill their parts.
The costumes were Very pretty Hn
appropriate, made of filmy white stuff
flocked out with, tinsel, and ine stage
spttinon of crecnerv. blossoms and fens
made it a realistic fairy scene.
Those 'taking part in the cantata were
Herman Moore. Veda Miller, Harold
Foster. Freda Mauer, Viola Bradley,
Magdalene Derr, Anna Duedall, Teddy
Howe and little Kose rosnoi.
There was only one fault that could
be found and that was that the room
was not large enough to hold the audi
ence and this also crowded ia- siagh
into close quarters. Outside of that,
teachers and pupils can well feel proud
of the work done last nigni and iuo
little folks can have the pleasure or
knowins thev furnished a delightful
evening's eutertainment that will long
be remembered by all wno we nan as
verv creat pleasure of seeing their pret
ty little play, and hearing their sweet
young voices and ime music.

London. June 5. Two suffragettos
who aucceeded in getting into the
throne room at Buckingham palace dur
ing a "court" last night, and appeal

for women," were identified looay as
the Misses Mary and hlcanor wiom
field, dauchters of Sir Arthur Bloui-
fiolil and granddaughters of the late
Lord Bishop Blomfield of London.
Court attendants, nornlicd at what
to their minds was an act little ehort
of sacrilege on the young womens
part, at '.first tried to suppress toe
news that the suffragettes had at last
reached royalty itself with their de
mands. Later, when rumors of the in
cident began to leak out, they reluct
antly admitted that one woman had
succeeded in getting into the palace, i
It was not until today that it became

who, invading that .iaglL&h holy of
holies, the throne room, and pleaded be
fore the king and quoon thomselves
last night for "votes for women," the
court authorities wore taking the most
stringent precautions today to prevent
a repetition of the incident.
"Your majesty, for God's sake, do
not use force! "
With orchestra playing its loudest
to drown her voice, attendants quickly
hustled her backward etiquette requir
ing that court visitors must constantly
face the king from the palace and
turned her over to the police.
Just how the offender would be pun.
ished was not very clear.- The crown
prosecutor was understood to hold that
nothing more serious than a charge of
disturbing the peace could be made
good against her, but court attaches, it
was said, maintained that so trivial
an accusation, considering the enormity
of the offonse, would be merely ri
diculous, and tnat unless some adequate
penalty could be exacted it would be
better not to prosecute at all.
Court Officials Perturbed.
What especially perturbed the of
ficials was that, warning having been
given that a- suffragette invasion of
the court was planned, it was believed
precautions had been taken that would

impossible, but since it nevertheless
succeded, what guarantee was there
that it would not succeed again!
The king and queen were reported to
be furious. Current eomment indicated
that the masses of the English felt a
shocking outrage had been perpetrated,

In future, it was stated, nobody

The Blomfield family moves in the
best society in England, and is dis
tinctly of the aristocratic class. It was
said the two women belong to no or

First rcportB were that they had ob
tained admission to the palace by pre
senting forged credentials. When it
became, known who they were, how.
ever, it was generally believed they
had genuine invitation cards, which,
for persons of their position, would not
have been difficult for them to secure.
London, June 5. Except that they
will never be allowed-to attend another
court function, it was stated this aft
ernoon that there will be no punish
ment inflicted on the Misses Mary and
Eleanor Blomfield, who engaged in a
suffragette demonstration in the kinga
and queen's presence in the throne
room at Buckingham palace last evening.
General Mrs. Flora Drummond, a
leading suffragette, was arrested near
the entrnnco to Buckingham palace last

Ben West Bays Treasurer Force Un
familiar With Reasons For Difference
In Assessments Against Adjoining
County Assessor Ben West will move
into his now quarters on the lower floor
of the court house tomorrow and after
the furniture is arranged the office
force with three new deputies will be
gin writing the tax rolls for 1914. The
new office, which was formerly oc
cupied by the eounty clerk, is being
painted today for the finishing touch
before the grand entry of the assessor.
The county township maps for refer
ence for the public have been put into
new cases, which are declared to be a
material improvement over the old ones
htch rolled up like a window shade.
The new ones are hung on swinging
arms which permits the maps to be
seen but will not wear them out by
rubbing over the others as in the old
cases. The new cases take up less than
one-fourth the room required for the
old ones.
Mr. West expressed the opinion that
the assessor's office would be able to
utilize all of the floor space in a short
time as it was likely that the next
legislature would pass a law making
the assessor the tax collector. Now the
office has been turned over to the
countv treasurer but the county treas.
urer's force is necessarily unfamiliar
with the reason for the difference in
assessments on property. A proporty
owner pays his taxes but protests that
his taxes are too high according to the
tax paid by his neighbor. The treasurer
did not make the assessment and is
unable to give the reason for the tip
parent discrimination. However, if the
collection of the taxes was in tho bands
of the assessor the office force would
know why the one piece of property
was assessed higher than the other and
would be better able to adjust differ
ences which cause protests from prop
erty owners.

of 5,000 listened today whilo President
Wilson impressed upon tho graduating

a far finor thing to aorve humanity
than "to fight at tho drop of the hat

Referring to the Mexican situation
the president prodicted that tne Ameri
can occupation of Vora Oruz would
leave "a different taste in the mouths
of peoplo who have hithorto feared and
despised Americans."
"It ought always to be one of your
thoughts that you are sample Ameri
cans and not moroly naval officers,"
tho president continued, "and that tho
American point of view regarding the
army and navy is that the country is
using thorn as instruments of civiliza
tion, not of aggression.
"America's idea is to serve human

The president paid A tribute to Ad

of statesmanship who has grown bigger
with me daily."

The railroad commission hns troubles
of its own, but these are trifles coin
pared to the troubles of othor peoplo
that are passed up to it. Here is a
sample. Mr. B. Kohn, of Ilillsbn.N)
recently wrote the commission com
plaining of the P. E. & E, and Mating
that he had purchased a ticket from
Beavertown to Newton, and that in
stead of being allowed to got off the
train at Newton ho was put off in the
brush and had to leach the place en
foot. The commissioners passed the
complaint up to the P., E. & E. author
ities and they meokly plead guilty but
give the following extonuating circumstances.
They claim that the tram on v1iich
Mr. Kohn was traveling does not stop
at Newton and ' that tho ngent at
Beaverton had no right or authority to
sell Mr. Kohn the ticket for that place.
They further claim that the conductor
in taking up the fares discovered rnis
ticket but after telling Mr. Kohn the
train did not stop at Newton, instructed
the brakoman to allow Mr. Kohn to get
off there. TMb was nice of iho con
ductor and showed an acommodating
spirit. The brakeman however was a
new man, and not well acquaintol with
the road, and as tho train passed Dan
zer station he thought it was Newton,
and pulling the cord stopped the train,
and all this lu an extra c.rrr.H 10 ac

back. Then he discovered hiy had
