. Stimson May Bun With Taft.
Washington, May 25-0ne of the most
interesting bits of political gossip Wash
ington has heard in a long while car
rent here to the effect that the entrance
of Henry L. Stimson, of New York' in-
- to President's Cabinet may mean that
he will be Mr. Taft's running mate in
the campaign of 1912. " President Taft,
it is said,' fully expects io be renomi
nated and little consideration is given
here to reports to the contrary. The
advisers of the President in casting
about for a man to head the ticket with
him are said to look ; with much favor
npon Mr. Stimson, the new Secretary
of War, They appear to be particular
ly anxious t? get a strong man from
the progressiva element-on the ticket,
and prefer one from a pivotol State

Provisional President-elect De La
Barra, acknowledged his elevation to
that high office in an open letter to the
Mexican people last night He declared
he would not be a candidate for either
president or vice-president when a gen
eral election should be called.
In his letter De La Barra, in referr
ing to Toreign relations, declared that
the Mexican government will spare no
effort to make its relations with for
eign nations more friendly every day.
President Dial's letter of resignation
follows: -
"Sir The Mexican people who gen
erously have covered me with honors,
Who proclaimed me as their leader du
ring the international war who- patriot
ically assisted me in all works underta
ken to develop industry and the; com
merce of the republic, establish its cred
it, gain for it the respect of the . world
and obtain for It an honorable position
in the concert of nations; that samepeo
pie sir, has revolted in armed military
bands, stating that my presence in the
exercise of supreme executive power is
the causa of this insurrection. . ' -.
" 1 do not know of any fact imputa
ble to me which could have caused this
social phenomenon, "but, permitting,
though not admitting, that I may be
unwittingly culpable, such a possibility
makes me the least able to reason out
and decide my own culpability. There
fore, respecting as I have always re
spected the will of ths people, and in
accordance with article 82-of the Feder
al constitution, I coma before the su
preme representatives of the nation in
order to resign, unreservedly, the office
of Constitutional President of the Re
publicjjfith which the national vote hon
ored me, wnicn I do with ail the more
reason since, in order to remain in of
fics it would be necessary to shed Mex
lean blood, endangering the eredft of
the country, dissipating its wealth, ex
hausting its resources and exposing its
policy to international compilations. '
" I hope, gentlemen, that wn the
passions which are inherent to all revo
lutions have been calmed, a more con
scientious and justified study Will bring
out in the national mind a correct ac
knowledgement which will allow me to
die, carrying engraved iamy soul just
impression of the estimation of my life,
which throughout I have devoted and
will devote to my countrymen,' ,

Prices Upward, Kills Curtail Pros
' pects For Big Crop,- That Is
. Needed For Demand.
Cotton continues to soar; the mills
continue to run; near eurtailment is
practiced and short time is threatened.
All manufacturers seem to agree upon
three things. First, that prises of cot
ton and cotton goods are at a 'disparity
a profit Second, The way to lengthen
the supply of cotton and shorten the
supply of cotton goods is by' actual
short time. Third. . The other 'fellow
ought to shut down tight or curtail 50
pej; cent while I run full time.- . -1
This policy of everybody waiting for
the other fellow to curtail has placed
cotton in a very strong statistical, po
sition. Spinners find themselves bid
d ng against each other and against a
handful of strong speculators whd have
the situation so much at their command
that their supremancy is conceded. The
supply of goods seems to be ample al
though the accumulations are not bur
densome. In Great Britain :. business
continues good and the continent shows
improvement..- - v
-Crop accounts are very favorable and
the start Is much above the average
except in small areas in North Carolina,
Souih Carolina and Oklahomfi where
dry weather has delayed the coining up.
The acreage and the use of fertilisers
will exceed" Wl records. ' Man's, effort
to grow a i big crop and an early -one
can be defeated only by conditions be
yond human control. A big -crop of
cotton is desired and a big crop wlll be
required for the world's needle ''None
are so anxious an those who watch and
wait,," and all civilization is concerned
about the cotton crop and this anxiety
will not be relieved for many days at a
time until we are nearer tha boles. .

General Wood is Xofc Convinced
That Mexican Trouble
.'4 ' v Is Over. .
,
Washington, May 27 There will be
no withdrawal of troops from Texas fn
the near future, it .is declared at the
war department, despite the resigna
tion of President Diasf and the prospect
of peace in Mexico. If General Wood
has his way, the troops will remain at
San Antonio until next winter.
Though taking a hopeful view of the
Mexican situation, and believing that
Diaz's resignation will do much to re
store peace and order, neither army of
ficers nor officials of the state depart
ment are convinced, that the end is in
sunt
The principal reason for the retention
of the troops fa Texas, however, is the
determination of Maj ir General Wood
that a "maneuver" division having
been assembled for the first time since
the Civil war, it shall remain until it
has thoroughly learned the lessons the
general staff has sev out for it. The
opportunity, he believes, is too good

The Roper Log Pond.
A big piece of work is in progress at
the Roper Lumber Company's mill on
Neuse River. This is the bsnking of a
huge pond or lake to contain the train
loads of logs that are brought to this
big lumber plant.
The pond is in good part completed
and will be 320 feet long and 110 feet
wide and in depth about 12 feet. The
cubic contents of earth to be removed
is 25,000 cubic yards and the removal
of this great quantity is being done by
a steam dredge and a railroad track
runs down an incline to the bottom of
the pond which is kept fairly free from
water by a steam pump. The advan
tages of using the pond instead of the
skids upon which the loads are now un
loaded are several, the saving of the
labor of a number of men in handling
the logs, the better condition of th?
logs and their greater , freedom from
grit. It is a big piece of work and the
engineer in charge is Mr. H. A. Brown
of this city. . "

Russia Admits Jews From United
States.
Washington, May 27. Russia is
conceding the right of entry into
that country of American Jews visit
ing the Czar's domainn business
missions. The Kussian Embassy hi r
is now itsuing passports of this kind to
properly identify American Jewish busi
ness men. '.
There are no longer any obstructions
placed in the way of American Jews
who seek to enter the empire on legitim
ate business.
It is stated here that this is hot the
result of any recent pressure brought
to bear upon the Russian Government
through threatened legislation in the
direction of abrogation of the existing
Russo-American treaty, but results
from a more liberal view that hss been
taken in Russia as a matter of sound
internal administration.
It is understood hem that it is now
proposed to abolish the whole- system
of Rustian passports, which would
remove the last obsticle to the rntry
into the country of persons of any
religious faith or race, although, of
course, ths'Jews would have to obserr
the restrictions as to residence within
the "pale" so long as the laws on that
subject remain in force. - .

RECIPROCITY
i "' ' asiBBBiaeHiwsw "
Prospects For President's Pet Bill
to Pass. Looks Exceedingly
Gloomy.
Washington,. May 27 Reciprocity
with Canada is facing defeat in the
Senate,. . President Taft is so concern
ed that he has appealed to its friends
in and out of Congress for additional .
support. - '
' Senator Root's wood pulp amendment
and the Farmers Free List b'll are what
are threatening the Reciprocity bill and
the President fears they will encompass
its defeat unless the supporters of reci
procity tally to quick action. ,
What the President fears most is
that if the Root amendment Is adopted
the gates will be opened to other
amendments until the bill is strangled.
Between now and Monday the Presi
dent will use all his persuasion to change
at least two votes in the committee to
favor reciprocity, :
Ah equal danger.as the White House
sees it, is the Farmers' Free List hill.
The danger lies in that bill being at
tached to the Canadian bill. Old-line
Democrats in the Senate, Buch as Mar
tin and Swanson of Virginia an 1 Bacon
of Georgia.' favor reciprocity. They
would vote for it under most circum
stances, but, according to the President
their activity now in- attempting to tie
the Farmers' Free List bill to the Cana
dian bill threatens to spell defeat for
both measures.
