Mexico, Nov. 2f General Antonio
Rabago, military governor of the State
of Tatnpautipas, SSBed himself after
losing Victoris, the capital. The sui
cide of General Rabago is not admitted
by the government, but the news is
contained in an authoritative private
telegram to his relatives here. General
Rabago, as military governor, was re
sponsible fore the garrison when Vic
toria was attacked by the rebels on
November 17.
It was not until this morning that
Victoria had been captured. General
Rabago, it was stated, had evacuated
the city.
Among the incidents connected with
the capture of Victoria one is related
of the execution of Captain Thomas
Jamez. He was told that his life
would be spared if he foreswore the
government, but refused and was
marched to the place designated for
his death.
There he distributed among the firing
squad all but one of a package of
cigarettes. This he lighted himself and
signalled to the officer in command to
give the order to fire.
That Tampico is seriously menaced
by the rebels is indicated by private
advices which say they are moving
southward from Victoria and today
cut the railroad 40 miles north of Tarn
pico.
According to late dispatches the man
agers of the branches of the London
and Mexican and the National Banks
at Tampico have been instructed to
close their establishments and remove
the archives to Progresso.
President Huerta summoned the man
agers of thc Bank of London and Mex
ico and the National Bank before him
this afternoon and explained to them
the necessity of their financial assist
ance to meet thfcobligations.jjf the
National Railways on December 1. In
terest payments of the railways, due
December 1, aggregate 801,000 pesos
gold. It was to raise this amount and
the interest payments maturing Jan
uary 1 that E. N. Brown, president of
the National Railways, went to New
York recently.
The gross earnings of the railways
since December, 1912, show a decrease
of practically 15,000,000 pesos gold.
Losses on fixed charges and on proper
ty, track and equipment aggregate
many millions additional.
Failure to meet the payments in De
cember would, it is claimed, have the
right of foreclosure, but as such action
would have to be brought in a Mexican
court because the company is a Mexican
corporation, the difficulties to be ea
countered are obvious.

AND ISSUES SURVEY
OF THE CITY.
McADOO ISSUES STATEMENT
Declares Funds Of The Treasury
Are At Their Disposal.
The River and Harbor Act approved
July 25, 112, contained provision
for a preliminary examination of
"Northwest prong Bay River to public
wharf at dam in town of Bayboro,
North Carolina." Thc required ex
amination was made by the District
Officer, and pursuant to favorable
recommendations thereon, a survey
was authorized. The report of the
District Officer on the survey is favor
able for the improvement of the local
ity to the extent of recommending
an extension of the existing project
to the mill dam of a channel 50 feet
wide and 10 feet deep, with a turning
basin just beow the dam, at an estima
ted cost of $9,337.50, provided that
local interests contribute toward . the
improvement $2,700.
In accordance with law, the report
has been referred to the Board ol
Engineers for Rivers and Harbors
for consideration and recommendation.
From the information presented, the
Board is not convinced of the advis
ability of the United States under
Washington, Nov. 29. Secretary
McAdoo issued a statement tonight
decla ing that if banks throughout the
country are, as repo.-ted, restricting
credits to meet provisions of the ex
pected currency law, they are mak
ing a mistake. He announced that
the resources of the treasury will be
it the disposal of thc banks to aid
them in complying with the new law.
The statement in Dart said: "The
Secretary expressed the conviction
that the new law will impose no hard
ships on the tanks and that the trans
fers of capital and reserves to the
DroDosed Federal reserve bankj will
be accomplished with little or no in
convenience to thc banks and to gen
eral business. The Secretary said that
the Treasury Department had large
available resources at its command
that he should not hesitate to use
them for the purpose of aiding the
banks to comply with the new law and
that in is opinion the banks could
with perfect safety proceed with the
granting of accommodations to their
customers in the normal and usual
way.
"The Secretary said that he did not
of course, assume to advise thebanks
he only wanted them and the business
nublic to know that there is no
ground for apprehension and that the
attitude of the Treasury Department
is to be helpful and that he thought
it could be effectively helpful. He
said that if any banks are laboring
under the impression that the new
law will necessitate or occasion a re
striction of credits they are control
led by error.
"The Secretary stated that up to
date the banks had called upon the
Treasury for only $34,661,000 for crop
moving purposes; that these deposits
were, under the arrangements, to be
returned in four instalments begin
ning December 15th and ending
March 1st.
After spending three years in the
work, Raymond R. Eagle, a prominent
young civil engineer of the city, has
at last completed and issued a
map of the city of New Bern and its
numerous sub-divisions that is a credit
to Mr. Eagle, and will be of untold erorth
to the many business men and corpora
tions who have purchased one of them.
In 1875 H. A. Marshall compiled a
map of New Bern which, at that time,
took in efery part of New Bern and was
an excellent piece of work. Naturally
New Bern has greatly enlarged since
that period, but up to a few days ago
there was no map of the place, but the
one made during that year.
Realizing that New Bern busines
men needed a new survey of the city,
Mr. Eagle, three years ago, began this
work. The map which he has issued is
based on the one made by Mr. Marshall,
but, in addition, a number of new
surveys have been made. Every sub
urban section has been included and
there is even a map of the Glenburnie
Park property.
Each section of the city and the sub
divisions are indexed in bold letters
so that it is a very easy matter for any
one to find either. Riverside, Ghjnt'
I.arksvillc ,or any other sectionnwithou t
the least trouble. Another feature
is that, by using the map, one can tell
just how great is the distance from one
point to another. The scale is three
hundred feet to the inch, and by meas
uring one can estimate, within a few
feet, the exact distance from one point
to another.
A large number of the maprisave been
disposed of and it is safe to sJrf'lhat man
mou- will be placed by Mr. Eagle
during the next few days, for no business
house or public institution should be
without one.
