the committee would submit to state

The discussion at the dinner given
by Chairman Ililles indicated that
most of tlie leaders feared that a spe
cial convention would tend to empha
size tho present factional troubles in
the party and probably knock Into a
cocked hat plans for harmony now be

adopt a unit 'Of representation that
would curtail the influence of the
south in Republican conventions, such
unit to bo recognized as party law
upon acceptance 'by two-thirds of tlie
recognized organizations In the states.
Tho committee Will pledge itself to
other reforms advocated by the pro
gressives. In the resolution proposing
a new basis of representation designed
to minimize southern influence in party
councils it is provided that recognition
shall be given to state primary laws
and that a canvassing hoard, Instead of

Although the discussion at tho nilles
dinner seemed to foreshadow the de
feat of tho plan to hold a special con
vention, Senator Cummins and other
progressives carried tho fight to tho
Moor of the committee. They argued
that since it seemed to' bo agreed by
practically all leaders that the party
should reform its methods of doing
business, such reforms should be
adopted in a convention where the full
est sort of publicity for tho party's
work of rehabilitation would bo af
forded. Mr. Cummins had tho support of

We Have Started Hew Current

America has started a new current
of civilization In the world, according
to Gugllelmo Ferrero. the Roman his
torian. Professor Keriuro in u lec

contrasted America and Europe and
declared that new standards of Judg

understand America at its true value.
"We urn accustomed." said he, "to
regard things solely in terms of quali
ty. We look upon the riches of Amer
ica, for instance, with a kind of dis
daln. They are often regarded In Eu
rope in tho same light us the riches of
n barbarous peoplo which, to acquire
them, has forsaken man's superior
spiritual activities. It is not tieccs
sary to spend much time in America
to see that Americans are very far
from being devoted solely to the pur
suit of wealth
"I have also heard it said that Amer
icans ure without taste for art; that
their cities are hideous. They are pic
tured as paying large prices for any
thing that is antique or passes as such,
without distinguishing tho beautiful
nnd the authentic from tho mediocre
and the false. ,
"It is unjust to say that tho Ameri
can is indifferent to beauty. Moreover,
who would dare t allirm that tho
progress of the arts, letters and sci
ences Is nt 'tliis moment the principal
ipreoccupation of tlie old world? Islsten

nothing but talks of perfecting eco
nomic equipment the exploitation of
iron .-and coal mines, industrial develop
ment and how (to Increase trade. If
all this Is American, thou Europe must
be Tindergolug Americanization at an
amazingly rapid pace."
M. Ferrero sees in this new spirit,
which has developed since the discov
ery of America, an immense historical
imovement Which threatens to over
throw the very foundations of the
"The Idea of this progress is as
wrguo and indefinite in its meaning,"

poworful In taction. But it'ls a strangu
phenomenon that just in this century

to be complaining of the decadence of

Washington, Dee. 17. General Pan-
cho Villa, leader of the Mexican rebel
forces lu Chihuahua, has been prompt
to comply with the demands of the
United States that the rights of Span
iards and other foreigners in tlie ter
ritory under Constitutionalist control
It was announced at tho state ue-
partmpnt that tho mission of Marlon
Letcher, American consul nt Chihua

tlrely successful. Letcher made strong
representation to the rebel chieftain
on behalf of tho Spaniards who com-
plained of mistreatment when Chihua
hua Was occupied by the Constitution
alist army. General Carranza was ap
pealed to by the United Stntes at tho
same time, and It is understood that

Secretary Bryan declared thnt it was
wrong to draw tho conclusion that be
cause the United States had dealt with
the Constitutionalist military authori
ties it had In any sense recognized
the rebel government.
"Where a general fs in control or in
charge of a xonc,'" said Sir. Bryan,
"we make our representations to him.

representations to the Mexico City

Rebels Drawing Closer.
Mexico City, Dec. 17. Rebels drew
closer to Mexico City. A force of
2,000 Zapatistas arter a skirmish with
federals at Milpa Alta, only seventeen
miles from the National palace, wero
reported to have renewed tho battle.
But even more menacing than Zapa
ta's guerrillas is the impending finan
cial crash. Practically all tho Impor
tant business houses have posted no
tice that they will not accept hills of
state banks In payment for purchases.
It is expected that General Huorta.
who has been made dictator with ex
traordinary powers In the departments
of war, finance and interior, will issue!
a decree making acceptance compul-
Notices have also been poster by all
banks, with the exception of the Cen
tral bank, which is the holding bank
of a majority of the state institutions,
that bills will not be accepted on the
banks of Chihuahua, Guanajuato, San
Luis TotosI, Hidalgo, Queretero, Coa
bulla and the Oriental of Puebla. The
state banks of Sonora and Durango
aro soon to bo added.
It Is generally conceded that the
flnancial condition of the Huerta gov
ernment Is critical. It is believed that
unless European bankers come to the
president's aid tho government will de
fault on the interest on the National
railways' debt and tho government
bonds. Huerta Is having great diffi

Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 17. Warden Wil
liam H. Moyer has Issued an order bar

When Hawthorne was released he
made statements reflecting on the man

the convicts wero Insufficiently fed,
nnd many were tortured for trivial of
fenses and their health ruined. It Is
supposed that Hawthorne's attacks on

The order is a great 'disappointment
