an almost foregone conclusion. W.

Monday that farmers and other in

ment of Wayno county aro signing
the petitions In the hands of solici
tors. Tho association, Mr. Bullock
says, will be organized with about
100 members. This is encouraging
news. A horticultural association In
Wayne county would do an unlimit
ed amount of good and is an agency
that cannot be organized too soon
for the development of Wayne coun
ty. Every progressive farmer ought
to sign one of the petitions in cir
culation In tho county. We repro
duced the solicitors in our last Issue
owing to the fact that perhaps some
did not remember who they were.

Attondlng Church In New York When
Told of Slaying.
New York, Feb. 24. President Taft
was attending tho morning service at
St. Bartholomew's church In Mndlson
avenue yesterday when n newspaper
man conveyed the Intelligence of the
slaying of Mndero. The news reached
the president In tho middle of the ser
mon, nnd as he had already made ar
rangements to leave for Washington
immediately afterward he remained in
the church rather than to cause the dis
turbance which would have resulted
had he loft at that time.
Commenting on the situation imme
diately afterward, he said that he was
deeply grieved by tho news. While ad
mitting the added seriousness of the
situation In Mexico, tho president said
that ho would call no cabinet meeting
when he arrived in Washington and
added that the assassination in Itself
would not wnrrant any further move
on the part of tho United States gov
ernment A crowd of onlookers stood about the
church when tho president, accompa
nied by his military aid, Major Rhodes,
crossed tho sidewalk and entered a
waiting automobile. With a guard of
motorcycle policemen and an escort of
secret service men in a second automo
bile he went directly to the homo of his
brother, Henry W. Taft, at 30 West
Forty-eighth street, where ho has been
stopping during this visit to New York.
He had niready arranged to leave New
York for Washington from the Penn
sylvania station at a few minutes after
1 o'clock and so remained at his broth
er's house for the few minutes neces
sary to bid the family goodby.
From there he went to the Pennsyl
auvla station and hurried at once to bis
train, entering from one of the rear
gates and stopping only to shake hands
with the motorcycle policemen and bid
them goodby, saying, with a laugh, that
the next time they saw him he would
be a private citizen, ne was accompa
nied on the train by his secretary,
Charles E. Hllles, and his aid, Major
Rhodes. Mr. Hllles, who has had a
brief consultation with the president,
commented at some length on the crisis
precipitated In Mexico by the assassi
nation of Mndero and Suarez.
"If any connection is proved between
tho murder and the provisional govern
ment of General Iluerta," said Mr
Hllles, "the Iluerta government will o'
necessity lose caste uot ouly among the
Mexicans themselves, but with thp
United States and with all foreign
countries. As yet there Is no proof
that General Iluerta Is In any way re
sponsible for the assassination.
"There will be no special cabinet
meeting called to discuss the situation
It is niso unlikely that there will be a
special meeting for that purpose at any
tlmo In the immedlute future unless
there are unforeseen developments.
We have no way of judging such pos
sibilities or probabilities.
