TO QUIT VERA CRUZ
Washington Orders American Soldiers
From Mexican City.
Announcement was made by Presi
dent Wilson that lie has ordered the
withdrawal of the United States forces
from Vera Cruz.
Tlie announcement followed a dis
cussion of the situation at the cabinet
meeting and came as a direct result of
favorable advices from Paul Fuller.
President Wilson's personal represent
ative, who Is returning lrom an In
vestigating trip to Mexico.
It Is understood that Mr. Fuller re
ported that the withdrawal would
greatly facilitate the efforts of Cur
ran za to establish a stable government
In Mexico. The Immediate effect ot
the president's act will be to leave
Carranza free to conduct the reorgan
ization of Mexico without any re
Btraiat and to put him In possession
of one of the most Important points
in all Mexico.
The withdrawal will take place Just
as soon as arrangements can be made
for the delivery of the city to the
properly constituted Mexican authori
ties. The president's statement on the
subject was limited to the following:
"The troops have been ordered
withdrawn from Vera Cruz. This
action Is taken In view of the entire
removal of the circumstances which
were thought to justify the occupation.
The further presence ot the troops Is
While no mention was made of the
feet It 1b understood in olllclal circles
that with the withdrawal of the troops
most of the warships in Mexican
waters will be ordered home.
REPLY TO BULLET PROTEST
WJIion Does Not Believe It Is Time
Yet For Judgment.
President Wilson has laid down a
general principle by which the United
States will be guided throughout the
war In receiving and considering pro
tests from one belligerent against an
The president has decided that th
United Slates will not attempt t
form or express a final judgment or
any of these protests; that to do so
would be Inconsistent with the neu
trality of the United States govern
ment. The language of his reply to the
kaiser and his verbal answer to the
Belgians were Identical, so far as the
vital portions were concerned.
A cablegram replying to the protest
of President Polncare of Franco, who
charged that the Germans were using
dum dum bullets also was prepared. It
was not made public, but was known
to follow closely the text of the presi
dent's message to Emperor William.

CAUTION SEEN BY DUN'S
Trade Review Notes Hesitancy In
Dun's Review of Trade says this
"Hesitancy In entering upon new
commitments continues and a spirit oi
caution is everywhere manifest, yet
the confident feeling in business cir
cles is maintained. Sentiment is
strengthened by developments In the
financial situation, a favorable linpres
sion being created by the further Im
provement in foreign exchange and
the action taken with a view to meet
in K maturing obligations abroad.
"Failures tills week in the United
States were 384, compared with 282;
in Canada, 55 against 20 last year."

Twelve hundred prisoners arrived

Have the new suit or gown fitted over America's most justly famous corset,
Front Laced Corset
This week we are making an effort to acquaint women with the merit of
the Frolaset. A special showing of the new Fall Models is now in progress.
Every corset will be fitted. Women who are not in immediate need of a
corset, may arrange for a trial fitting. It isn't necessary to purchase. We
simply want you to see whether or not the Frolaset will improve the ap
pearance of your figure. We want you to compare the Frolaset with the
corset you are now wearing.
Each garment so admirably meets the needs of the figure for which it
was designed. The stout woman's corset is the best we have ever fitted.
The model for the growing girl is really the first -corset of this kind that
fully answers the requirements of the youthful figure. The model for the
short slender woman seems to be different from any corset we know of.
The medium-figured woman will find the Frolaset all she may anticipate.
In a word "they're perfect."
