35th YEAR
Washington Asked To Pay Cost Of
Getting Destitute Amer
icans Away.
Huerta Fall In Negations To
Borrow Hundred Mil
lion Dollars.
Washington, May 26. Conditions
In Mexico are reported worse. Small
pox is epidemic among the troops of
both the Federals and rebels in several
northern States while some nouthern
States are in a condition of anarchy.
Smallpox has broken out in Cananea
and Nogales, two places in Senora,
where there are many Americans.
These towns are mining centers and
have been the scenes of many engage
ments in the last two years between
Federals and rebels.
Such is the substance of a dispatch
to the State Department from Ambas
sador Henry Lane Wilson at Mexico
The situation about Tampico, Mex
ico, on the Atlantic coast, midway
between Matamoras and Vera Cruz,
is so bad that Americans are leaving.
Many have applied to Ambassador
Wilson for assistance to return to the
United States.
Conditions are quite as bad in the
vkintity of San Luis Potosi and Aquas
Calientes. There is no railway com
munication between these points.
The State Department has under
consideration the sending of money
to Ambassador Wilson to defray the
expense of the Americans in the Tam
pico and Aguascalientes districts in
leaving the country. Most of them are

force in Mexican waters is to be main

Louisiana, New Hampshire and South
Carolina to relieye the Connecticut,
Minnesota and Idaho, which have
been at Vera Crux and Tampico for
some time.
President Heurta has failed to bor
row 1100,000,000 from the French
bankers with whom he was negotiat
ing. The Mexican House of Repre
sentatives refused to sanction the loan,
and the bankers were frightened by a
despatch from Gen. Carranza, leader
of the rebles, who cabled to the rebel
agents in France and England:
"The unconstitutional Government
of Huerta may possibly obtain a pre
tended authorization from Congress
to contract a loan with citizens of
France. But as the entire Mexican
nation has rLen in arm.-, repudiating
the powers of the so-called Government
of Huerta, serious difficulties might
ensue, even war, in case the French
Government, on the triumph of the mil
itary "movement of which I am the first
chief, should support demands for the
payment of any loan made by Huerta."
Raoul Madero, who is here with
his sister, Angela, said that no member
of the Madero family is taking part
ia the present revolution, although
against Huerta.
Raoul Madero and Miss Angela
came to Washington to attend the
graduating exercises at St. Cecilia
Seminary. Miss Madero had a friend
ia the graduating olass.

Washington Judge Says Women
Should Protect Themselves.
Washington, May 28. "Smash
mashers" is the advice given to Mrs.
E. E. Thomas by Police Court Judge
Mullowny when he fined Richard O.
Muller $25 for saying: "Oh, you
pretty chicken," to her.
"Women should protect themselves
in the streets," said Judge Mullowny.
"This woman did just what numerous
others of her sex should do to ruffians
who accost or try to flirt with them on
the streets."
Turning to the defendant Muller,
Judge Mullowny said: "Always take a
blow from a woman and run. Don't
even wait for a blow."
Mrs. Thomas, with whom he tried to
flirt, beat Muller over the nose and
mouth with a silver hand bag, breaking
the skin at every blow.
motorcycle while turning the corner
of East Front and Short streets, was
conducted yesterday afternoon at 2
o'clock at the residence of his father,
Charles H. Lee on A street in Bridge
ton. The services were conducted by
Rev. R. E. Pittman pastor of the
Methodist church in Bridgeton, as
sist 'd by Rev. I. W. Rogers, pastor
of the Christian church in New Bern.
A detachment from the Pamlico
served as pall-bearers and a gun squad
from the vessel in command of Lieut.
Coffin accompanied the body to Cedar
Grove cemetery as en escort.
The services at the grave after the
Rev. Mr. Pittman had read the ritual
tf his church, were turned over to the
Woodmen ut the World of which order
the deceased was a member. When
the grave had been closed and a wealth
of flowers, including a very handsome
wreath sent by the Woodmen had,
been placed on the newly mound, the
gun squad from the revenue cutter
fired a salute of three volleys after
which the funeral party slowly left
the cemetery.
That death was instantaneous there
is not the least doubt. The body fell
to the ground after striking the tree
and those who saw the accident say
that there was not the slightest quiver.
The machine was thrown a distance
of at least fifteen feet and was so badly
wrecked that it will be necessary to
return it to the factory to be rebuilt
Curious Spectators
News of the tragedy quickly spread
and within less than ten minutes there
was probably two or three hundred
people on the scene. Among these
were many ladies and as usual a large
number of small boys, all anxious to
get a glimpse of the victim
The coroner was summoned and
upon his arrival made an examination
of the body. He decided that an in
quest was unnecessary and turned the
body over to J. K. Willis to be pre
pared for burial. Arrangements for
the funeral were not completed last
night but will be announced later.
Forrest Lee is survived by his father
nd mother, three sisters, Mrs. Dr.
McCullen of Bridgeton, Mrs. D. W.
D wdy of Wilmington, and Mrs. David
Miller of this city, and four brothers,
Carlos, Orville G., Whitehurst and
Grant, all of whom reside at Bridgeton.

Mrs. Love Dill Succumbs To At
tack Of Paralysis.
A telephone message was received
here last night telling of the death at
Oriental of Mrs. Love Dill, one of the
towns most highly esteemed and be
loved women.
Mrs. Dill and her husband moved to
Oriental about fifteen years ago from
Brooklyn, N. Y. At that time Oriental
was in its infancy and there were only
few dwelling houses and stores in
the place. Nine years ago Mr. Dill
succumbed to an attack of appoplexy
Some weeks ago Mrs. Dill was stricken
with paralysis and her condition grew
worse slowly until tnc ena came ai
7 :30 o'clock last night.
The deceased is survived only by a
niece, Miss Love Kitcn ot unentai
and two nephews, Herman Ritch of
South Carolina, and C. T. Langley
of Oriental. She was a member of
the Methodist church and has been
affiliated with every movement for the
advancement of this denomination in
that town. Arrangements for the fun

the news was 'phoned to this city.

This case has attracted a great deal
of attention all over Eastern North
Carolina. From the hour of the young
woman's disappearance the father of
the young woman believed that she
was endeavoring to reach Dr. J. T.
Dixon, a resident of Waycross, Ga.,
and later developments proved that
he was right.
In an interview given a Journal re
porter Mr. Harrell stated that Dr.
Dixon had given his daughter in
structions to go to the home of Mrs. E.
C. Middleton at Savannah, Ga., and
remain there until he called for her.
The young woman followed his in
structions but Mrs. Middleton read
an account of the affair and proceeded
to nip the doctor's plans in the bud
bv writing to the young woman s
parents and telling them that their
daughter had arrived in Savannah and
was at her home. The father "promptly
sent money to defray her expenses in
returning home.
Mr. Harrell is in possession of in
formation which may cause a man
who is at present living in New Bern a
treat deal of trouble. It seems that
this man had a few weeks prior to the
time that Lillian Harrell ran away
from home, visited Waycross, Ga.,
and that while there entered into an
agreement to get the girl out of this
State for the sum of one hundred dol
lars. Mr. Harrell believes that he plan
ned the whole affair and assisted the
young woman in getting out of New
It is also known that the Waycross
physician wrote to this man and en
closed money to delray the young
woman's expenses to Georgia. Dr.
Dixon has a wife and several children
and it is believed that his object in
inducing the young woman to come to
Geororia was to use her for immoral
Mr. Harrell is naturally very much
incensed over the affair and stated
his intention of starting legal pro
ceedings against all concerned as soon
as he returned home and if this is done,
Dr. Dixon and the man in this city
who is implicated in the affair, will
doubtless have an interesting time ex
plaining their connections with it.
It was learned yesterday that the
attention of District Attorney H. F.
Stawell would be called to the Harrcll-
Dixon episode with the view of ascer
taining whether the offense of the Way-
cross man does not come within the
purview of the Mann white slave act.
A visitor in the city who does not
court notoriety but who ts deeply
interested in welfare work, procured
a copy of the Journal to send to Mr.
Seawell so that he might know the
details of the affair. This party is
very strongly of the impression that

The fact that the Republicans think
they are "getting together" has cleared
the Republican atmosphere in Wash

The pleasure that the action of tl i

that both elements should put up the
