Would, Rccognizo Huerta Snys Ma
dero Was Murdered By Men
Whose Friends Ho Had Executed.
(N. Y. Sun, July 31.)
Washington, July 30. A new turn
came to-day in the Mexican situa
tion when Henry Lane Wilson, Unit
ed States ambassador to the southern
republic, appeared before the Sen
ate Committee on Foreign Relations.
Official Washington had practically
eliminated Ambassador Wilson as a
factor In the solution of the Mexican
problem ever since it became known
that his suggestions had received
scant consideration from the Presi
dent and Secretary of State Bryan,
but today ho came to the front with
a bound. Facing a Senate commit
tee which was strongly prejudiced
against him, he retired after about
three hours with most of the com
mitteemen convinced that his was
the only feasible plan thus far sug
gested for dealing with the Mexican
Not only this, but members of tho
committee, Democrats as well as Re
publicans, were impressed to a sur
prising degree with tho impartiality
and fairness with which the Ambas
sador treated the situation. They
came away from the committee room
convinced that he is not a partisan
of Huerta or any other faction in
Mexico. Furthermore, the Senators
left their conference with Mr. Wil
son acknowledging that there was at
least good reason to doubt whether
Huerta really was responsible for the
niuraer of Madero.
But the favorable impression made
upon tho Senate committee by Mr.
wiison s plan tor the recognition of
the Huerta Government was not the
only interesting development of the
aay. The Ambassador s examina
tion by the Senate committee served
to establish the fact that complete re
ports in regard to the Mexican situa
tion had been made by him regularly
to Secretary Bryan and suggestions
had been advanced in regrad to a
possible solution of tho Mexican
problem. Members of the committee
who had in vain sought to obtain de
tailed information on this subject
from the State Department wero as
tonished at the showing made by Am
Ambassador Wilson's plan for deal
ing with the Mexican situation as
laid before tho Senate committee
provided for recognition by the
United States upon the following
1. That a constitutional election
be held In Mexico next October and
that proper safeguards be adopted to
insure a fair expression by the vo
ters at the polls.
2. That pending claims of the
United States agains.t Mexico, includ
ing tne unamizai controversy and the
Colorado River dispute, be adjusted
on terms proposed by the United
3. That the pecuniary claims of
American citizens and others be ad
justed immediately through a com
mission and arrangements made for

Refuses to Go and Live AVltli
Fred Stinnard was arrested Tues
day afternoon by Officer Canlvan on
the charge of his wife, of desertion
and non-support. A hearing before
'Squire Smith was held and Stinnard
on his refusal to live with his Wife
was held in bail for court. Failing to
put up the $300 bond required he
was placed in the county jail.
Stinnard stays at Hotel Heumann
whjile his wife remains on tho little
farm In Cherry Ridge and as she
stated to Squire Smith she was oblig
ed to work very hard to keep the
farin going. Three weeks ago she
alleged while haying she suffered
greatly from an accident which near
ly caused her to lose her sight. She
was walking near the load of hay
when a stubble about the size of lead
pencil pierced tho eye and broke off
In 'there. Dr. E. W. Burns attended
Mrs. Stinnard and removed the twig
with difficulty. Mrs. Stlnnard's
sight was impaired but she will not
altogether lose it. Sho wears a
green patch over tho right eye. Mrs.
Stinnard also accused her husband
of associating with other women.
Tho charge was not denied by Mr.
Stinnard, who, it Is said by those who
know the situation, has good reasons
'for' not living with his wife. Tho
'Squire was evidently impressed with
the story told by Mrs. Stinnard for
he held the husband over to tho next
term of court.

Natives of Maplewood saw a bear

was a bear-run that led from tho
Moosic mountains through Maple
wood and on over to Newfoundland.
It was along this old run that the
bear was seen on Monday.

The "Dirt Road" Part of tho State
Suffers Heavily Old Claims Still
Unprovided for A Big Cut Af
fecting tho Reconstruction of tho
National Rond Tho $50,000,000
Bond Scheme the Only Relief for
Five Years to Conic.
Harrisburg, July 31. Insufficient
State revenue, due to the large excess
of appropriations over the income of
Pennsylvania for the next two years
on the part of the Legislature, has
resulted in a heavy reduction in the
appropriations in aid of the improve
ment of township highways on "dirt
roads.'" These highways, embracing
about 75,000 miles, have just been
brought under the supervision of the
State Highway department by the ap
proval of tho new township road act,
but their development will bo more
or less retarded by the inability of
the State to furnish the means.
Will Have to Walt Somo More.
. Appropriations made for the build
ing of main highways and for State
aid construction, as well as for re
pair and maintenance of the State
system, were all heavily cut, and the
same fate has befallen the bills which
were drawn to pay townships tho fif
ty per cent, bonus on the cash road
tax. The State has been remiss in
this direction and despite of tho pass
age of laws binding it'to the policy of
aiding townships that abolish the
work tax it still owes these townships
for a couple of years. The Governor
approved in its entirety the bill car
rying $1,000,000 to meet the de
ficiency in the payments for 1911
and 1912, but was forced to cut tho
bill providing for 1913 and 1914
to $250,000 which will give only a
fraction to the townships. Nothing
could bo voted by the Legislature to
meet tho deficiency existing in tho
accounts of somo years ago.
Quaker City Suffered Also.
Philadelphia, which sought $400,
000 to improve the numerous miles
of road In Its rural district so that
they could connect with the improved
roads In adjoining counties, suffered
along with the rest, getting but one
fourth of that sum. The $300,000
appropriation for reconstruction of
tho National road In the southwest
ern part of the State, was vetoed be
cause the funds are not In sight.
Hard to Wait 5 Years!
These acts of the Governor, taken
after thorough study of the revenue
situation, bring homo rather forcibly
the situation in which Pennsylvania
finds itself in regard to its public
works. Owing to the demands of
the charities and the failure to pro
vide new sources of revenue the only
means to secure the money necessary
for the systematic development of
the highways Is through the propos
ed $50,000,000 bond issue. Tho con
stitutional amendment providing for
this Issue will be voted upon In No
vember and should it fail tho Stato
will have to bo content for at least
five years with road development
entirely too small to meet tho pub
AND SOME ARE NOT.
Six happy young ladles, evidently
city boarders, smiling, happy and
free from care, came to Honesdale
for a good time on Wednesday and
they had it, too. After a ride of per
haps eight miles from the shores of
one of Wayne county's many beauti
ful lakes, tho bevy of girls stretched
themselves, and alighted from a
three-seated wagon. They then
sauntered around historic Honesdale.
Tho afternoon was pleasant (and tho
girls too) and nothing was too good
for them. Thoy visited tho ice
cream parlors, fruit stands (my! but
that banana was good) and ato to
their heart's content. Just before
leaving, the last good-byes to tho old
town were said and tho bevy lined
up on the curb of tho National Bank
