Relict of Slain Mexican President
Could Give Many Facts to Adminis
tration Which Would Aid It In Deal
ing With Present Situation Woman
of Great Moral Strength.
As a possible means of aiding tho
administration In dealing with tho
Mexican situation, Mrs. Madero, widow
of tho slain president of the warring
republic, may testify before the senate
committee on foreign relations at
Friends of the Maderos hope that
Mrs. Madero will appear before tho
committee. They say she has a great
nmount of first hand information con
cerning tho betrayal of her husband
and the participation of the former
American ambassador in events lead
ing up to the resignation of Madero.
These friends say sho will make an ex
cellent witness, that she speaks Eng
lish fluently nnd is dramatic.
She is beloved by all of tlo little
band of revolutionists In ttw Uniteu
States. They regard her as an ex
traordinary woman. One enthusiast
said recently that tho physical ami
moral strength of Mrs. Madero is won
derful. During tho turbulent scenes'
in tho City of Mexico on Feb. is Mrs.
Madero never once lost her poise nor
a full comprehension of her position,
her admirers say.
Huerta Clouds Situation.
Washington officials read with inter
est the recent declaration of Aurcllano
Urrutla, the Mexican minister of the
Interior, that President Huerta would
n&t resign and, moreover, would brook
no Interference on the part of foreign
ers in his administration.
While no plan that tho American
government has had under serious con
sideration Involved any direct Interfer
ence lu Mexican affairs, the ndmltted
attitude of tho administration is ono of
unalterable opiwsltiou to the recogni
tion of the Huerta regime.
Without the recognition of the Unit
ed States, leading Mexicans have de
clared that Mexico would not be able
to extricate Itself from its financial
difficulties. On this account it had
been believed lu Washington that
pressure would be brought to bear to
persuade Huerta to resign.
The announcement that he has de
termined not to do so has beclouded
tho situation somewhat and has spur
red the Constitutionalists to further
activity to obtain the repeal of tho
embargo on arms. They claim that If
they do not got arms tho revolution
will be n protracted struggle. With
munitions of war they say they can
quickly bring matters to a crisis.
Mediation Not Abandoned.
Despite these conditions, the admin
istration has not altogether abandoned
the hope that mediation may prevail.
It is believed that, In view of tho
depleted condition of tho Mexican
treasury nnd the long and hard cam
paign which Is bound to result if tho
present status Is maintained, Huerta
may bo influenced" to suspend hostili
ties and hokl an election. Carranza,
it is thought, could bo induced to sus
pend fighting if nuerta would elimi
nate himself from the elections nnd
abide by tho vote. Carranza will not
agree to anything which Includes Uk
participation of Huerta. no lias said
so directly and through his Junta in
Washington. Members of tlio latter
have declared that while tlwy did
not believe there would bo any media
tion, Carranza would agree to any
thing reasonable. Tlieso members ridd
ed that Carranza does not seel; the
presidency; that all ho desires is tho
punishment of nuerta for his treach
ery to Madero.
ANOTHER PARCEL POST USE.
C. O. D. Plan Aids Merchant to Collect
From Unwary Debtors.
A Kansas merchant lias found n new
use for tho parcel post When the C.
O. D. feature went into effect on July
1 ho hit upon an idea to collect a num.
ber of small accounts which he had
been carrying for some time nnd
which had caused considerable loss
during a period of several years.
A number of small boxes were ol
tained nnd filled with waste paper nnd
on tho top was placed a receipted bill
for tho proper amount A flvo cent
stamp was required for each box, and
tho O. O. D, fee was' 10 cents for each
imckage. Tho next day tno returns be
gan to conio in, and in nearly every
case tho debtor paid tho amount, sup
posing that tho package contained
something of value, but of course, not
being permitted to confirm this sua
plclon before opening it
