THE CITIZEN, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1913.
Many Arr.encan Decide to
Remain in Mexico.
TALK OF APPlAL TO POAERS
Held Monroe Doctrine Docs Not Call
For United States to Police Mexico
For Europe Secretary Bryan
Decides to Stay In Washington.
City of Mexico, Sept. 1. Humors
that John Lind .luul been summoned
ImeU to the e:ijltnl were dispelled later
by the statement from unolllelal
sources thnt no Invitation for his re
turn had been sent to Vera Cruz to
ldm "Mr. 1. 1 ml Is welcome here at
any time." It wa said.
I'"roiu Vera Crust it was reported that
Mr. tint had no intention of coming
1ich and inlhl not return to the capi
tal even if an olliclal invitation was
extended toward hliu unless he had
specific' orders from Washington. Few
Americans aplled to Arnold Shank
lln. consul .-i'neral, for transportation
to the coast, and it Is believed that the
not) Americans who went to Vera Cruz
on (lie Saturday night tralus marked
the high water mark of Americans
fleeing the country, it Is thought that
very few of the Americans now In the
City of Mexico will leave here in au
Most of those asking for transporta
tiou are Americans of means, but 1111
able to realize on their holdings' Imme
diately The great majority of Ameri
cans here will remain, believing them
selves safe from molestation even In
case of Intervention. For them to
leave the country, would entail great
loss to them, and the closing of their
enterprises would throw thousands out
Americans who arrived from the
states of Aguas, Calientes nnd Guana
juato say that most Americans will
leave such outlying districts because
of the general impression that Inter
vention Is coming. Most of the Ameri
cans are leaving the country under
protest. L'p to the present they have
suffered more from the Jibes of mem
bers of other foreign colonies here
than by anything said or done by Mex
icans. Bryan In Washington.
Washington, Sept. 1. Kuw authorita
tive statements could be gained relat
ing to the Mexican situation. The presi
dent has gone to his summer home at
Cornish, X. II. In his absence Secre
tary Bryan, It Is said, will remain hero
today and refrain from lecturing. Mr.
I try tin was at the state department a
few hours between his Chautauqua
engagements. In the afternoon he gave
one of his lectures at Oxford, Pa., and
in the evening one. at Ilolalr, Md.
Mr. Bryan is reported to be confident
that General Hucrta will soon be elimi
nated from the situation, but ho would
not say how, nor would be say on
what his confidence Is based.
May Appeal to Powers.
There is speculation here on the sug
gestion which has been made that
President Wilson, as a last resort sub
mit the solution of the Mexican prob
lem to n conference of the powers.
The president does not believe that the
Monroe doctrine calls for the United
States to police Mexico for the other
Under- thls interpretation, if the
citizens or subjects of other powers
arc in danger In Mexico the United
States can bo expected to do nothing
more than exercise Its good offices
through diplomatic channels in their
behalf. The natural corollary of this
belief, it is declared, is that the United
States will not look askance at any
steps European or Asiatic powers may
deem necessary to take for the pro
tectlon of their citizens in Mexico.

Mr. Wilson had Intended spending
today on the golf links, but he is urged
so earnestly to attend the annual
picnic of the Windsor board of trade
that he may consent to do so.
The president's trip to his summer
home was a slfghtly adventurous one.
From New Haven, Conn., to Spring
field, Mass.. his privato car was at
tached to tho rear of an excursion
train. The rear end of his car was
next to the excursion train's official
"barroom," and because of its con
gested condition correspondents and
secret service men were "forced" to
make their headquarters there.
At Springfield it was discovered that
tho regular train to which tho presi
dent's car was to have been attached
had left, and a special cnglno was ob
tained for the remainder of the trip
to Windsor. Miss Jessie Wilson, who
was hurt last week when she was
thrown from her 'horse, was at the sta

City station on the West Jersey nnd
Seashore Electric railway, James Mil
ler, a prosperous farmer, and his ten-year-old
son, James Miller, Jr., wero
Instantly killed, together with the horse
they wero driving. They were struck
by tho southbound special Sunday ex
press leaving Camden.
Mr. Miller was driving along the
English Creek road, and when nearing
tho crossing looked to see if any train
was approaching. Tho northbound
track wus clear, but tho station ob
structed tho clear view of tho south
bound truck, and, not noticing tho
onward rush of the special express,
MJller attempted to cross the tracks.
The horse and wagon wero tossed
more than 100 feet from tho crossing.
Tho bodies of Miller and his sou were
picked up thirty feet from the tracks.

S CONFIDE 1
Declares W&W Stay in Can

HAS MANY CALLERS IN GCLL
Young Women Presorit Him With o
Huge Bouquet of Sweet Peas Pris
oner Expresses Regret That
There Are No Sabbath
Sherhrookc, Que., Sept. 1. Harry K.
Thaw said that lie expects to remain
in Canada until October. If not longer.
That statement was made despite the
fact that he must appear in court'
Tuesday on n writ of habeas corpus
sworn out by Judge Roudreau, con
stable at t'oathook, who drew up the
faulty warrant on which Thaw Is held.
"That move on the part of Jerome is
a Joke." Thaw asserted.
'William Travers Jerome Is a wee
lilt crafty at times, but ho lias leaped
before he looked. Canadian law says
habeas' corpus proceedings can lx In
stituted by n prisoner, his agents or at
torneys or persons acting in his liehalf.
Houdreau is Jerome's agent, not mine.
'I think Justice Hutchinson will
recognize that, In view of the addi
tional fact that I discontinued the
habeas corpus proceedings Instituted
by my lawyers. Justice Globensky
hold that habeas corpus proceedings
could not he denied mo, nor could
they be forced upon mo."
'How long do you expect to remain
In jail hereV" he was nskeil.
"Until October, anyway," he replied
Looks For Long Stay.
"What do you propose to do at that
time when the grand jury will un-
doubtly quash the faulty warrant on
which you are held?"
"Never cl.Imb a hill until you come
to It," he answered, adding, "I may
be in Canada for a long time."
Although Thaw's attorneys seem
equally as confident as their client,
nevertheless their ngents nre said "to
be most active in Vermont Into which
stato Thaw will be deported by the
immigration authorities -when he Is
freed on tho faulty charge of being a
fugitive from justice.
Thaw expressed regret again thnt
there are no religious services in tho
Jail here on Sunday. The governor of
tho prison offered to send for a clergy
man, but Thaw declined. The prison
er has received two new suits of
clothes from a local tailor, and he look
ed like a "June bridegroom." p
Thaw Is a great attraction for tho
Slierbrooke exhibition, which Is now
open. Almost as many persons go to
the Jail as to the exhibition grounds.
Three young women who refused to
give their names called at tho Jail nnd
presented Thaw with a huge bouquet
jf sweet pens.

TIDE TURNING TOWARD
DISCREDITED "DOC" COOK.
German Scientist Is Not Inclined to
Brand Him "Swindler."
Frederick A. Cook's claim to the dis
covery of the north polo is still of suf
ficient importance to enlist the consid
eration of scientific men in Germany.
One of these Is Professor Otto Baschln,
custodian of the Geographic institute
of the Berlin university, who, in nn ar
ticle headed "Is Cool: a Swindler?"
considers the, I'oary-Cook controversy
at considerable length nnd concludes
that tho evidence for Cook's truthful
ness is very strong. i
The question of olfeorvatlons based
upon tho sun's altitude as a method of
determining whether one has reached
tho pole !,s summarily dismissed by
Professor Baschln as nuite unreliable.
The Insufficiency of such observations,
ho says, wasy set forth, soon nfter the
Peary-Cook dispute arose by Dr. A.
Wedemeyer of tho German imperial
marine department, nn experienced as
tronomer and navigator, who declared
that tho explorers' diaries, so far as
observations of the sun's altitude was
concerned, could have no probative
Oher authorities have since- confirm
ed this declaration, says Professor
Baschln. and, this being so, the ques
tion as to who had reached tho pole
became primarily one of credulity, In
which Peary, with yeara of successful
and honorable exploration to his ac
count, naturally enmo off the better.
Professor Baschln continues: "One
must separate this question (whether
Cook reached tho polo) from tho sec
ond, whether Cook, even if ho cannot
prore his presence at tho pole, did not
attain far toward tho polo nnd tread
hitherto unknown portions of that
part of the arctic regions. These re
sults of his expedition aro not affected
by tho strife over the polo and deserve
at least consideration, whereas they
aro fully ignored by tho Peary adher
ents. Little by little, however, tho
number of those who believe that Cook
reached the polo is growing."

GUM OOZIXG FROM TREES.
The following question, in regard
to gum oozing from trees, was re
ferred to Prof. H. A. Surface, State
Zoologist, Harrlsburg: " I havo cher
ry trees that havo bunches of gum.
Can you give mo a remedy to rid the
trees of the trouble?
Answer: The gum oozing from the
bark of your trees may be from one
of three or four causes. It may be
(1) 'Mechanical injury, in which
case the best thing to do is to clean
away the gum and paint tho wound
with melted grafting wax or bees
wax, or even common house paint,
and let Nature take care of it.
(2) A f uncus disease sometimes
called "gummosus;" In which case
severe pruning back of trees, cultl-
tivation, fertilization of soil and wa
tering are about all that can be done,
as the purpose should be to stimulate
growth. This can not be reached by
spraying, as it is beneath the bark.
(3) 'Bark borers or shothoie bor
ers. These are the larvae of very
minuto beetles that make tunnels
beneath the bark and are also called
"Engraver Beetles." When they ma
ture they bore through the bark and
leave holes about the size of those
made by gun shot, or about the size
of a pin's head. This is why they
are called "Shot-hole Borers." They
attack only trees that aro declining.
There is no way of reaching them in
tho sense of a remedy, but the best
thing to do is to prune back the
trees, cultivate tho soil, and water
abundantly and frequently with wa
ter containing a teaspoonful of ni
trate of soda in each gallon of water.
This is to stimulate growth, and of
ten is successful.
(4) The fourth cause of gum is a
larger kind of borer, such as is to be
.seen in peach and plum trees fre
quently. This can be killed Dy in
serting a soft wire with a sharp
point, or by cutting out with a sharp
knife, slitting lengthwise rather than
crosswise In the bark; or using the
best possible remedy for borers,
which consist of a liquid called car
bon bisulfide, or bisulfide of carbon,
put Into a spring bottom oil can and
injected Into the holes with mud or
clay, and the pests will be killed at
once and the tree not injured as it
might be by cutting. This remedy
is recommended for all borers.

ITH the corn growing rank
and tall in the fields of Old
Wayne county, the ma
jority of farmers are think
ing about silos, ensilage
and ensilage cutters. And that line
of thought leads right up to where
the Eric Brothers hardware store
have their innings.
Erk Brothers are more than deal
ers In hardware, for they are practi
cal farmers. Consequently they
know the needs of farmers, and they
ropresent and sell the best machin
ery and farm appliances that are
manufactured. For Instance, take
Silage Cutters: They sell the famous"
"Ohio" Cutters, and can give a good
and valid reason for every claim
made as to their superiority. Hero
aro some reasons why tho "Ohlo'l
cutters aro tno very nest:
Dependability. The "Ohio" will
fill your silo at the rate of a ton in
two minutes, tho corn being cut in
half-inch lengths, and will keep the
pace and maintain tho strain hour
after hour and day after day.
Bull-Dog Grip. The "Ohio" is bo
built that material to bo cut cannot
wind around tho lower roll and clog
or break the, machine. When once
started the material' has to go
Durability. Tho '.'Ohio" people
have been building machines for
nearly 60 years. They have found
all the weak places, and the weak
places have all been eliminated.
Castings. "Ohio" castings are all
heavy and of high-silicon iron.
Foundation. Extra heavy of
thoroughly seasoned hard maple,
mortised, tenoned, double-pinned and
well braced with iron rod and nut
reinforcement through front.
Safety. Tho tragedies that occur
