Washington.—Warning was issued
by the United States to tbe Mexican
government aa well as to Gen. Pas

demand that American life and prop

hold Mexico and the Mexican people
responsible for all wanton or illegal
acta, sacrificing or endangering Amer

The attitude of the United States,
as expressed to both tbe Federal and
rebel authorities Is that any maltreat

deeply resented by the American gov

of his instructions was likewise sent

A Wirslsss Message From the Steam er Carpathia Glvss a Partial List «f
the Pssengsrs Who Were Rescued From
the Titanic.
New York.—More than one thou
sand five hundred persons, It Is (ear
ed, sank to death when, within less
than four hours after she crashed
into an Iceberg, the mammoth White
Star Lino steamship Titanic, bound
from Liverpool to New York, on her
maiden voyage, went to the bottom
off the Newfoundland banks.
Of the approximately twenty-two
hundred persona on board the fltaat
liner, tome of them of world-wide
prominence, only 866 are known to
have been saved. The White Star
Line offices in New York, while keep
ing up hope to the last, were free to
admit that there has been horrible
loss of life." 1 .
Accepting the early estimates of the
fatality list as accurate, the disaster
Is the greatest in the marine histpry
of the world. Nearest approaching it
in magnitude were the disasters to
the steamship Atlantic in 1873, when
574 lives were lost, and La Bourgoyne
in 1808, with a fatality list of 571.
Should It prove that other lines, no
tably the Allan liners, Parisian and
Virginian, known to have been in the
vicinity of the Titanic, hud picked up
other of her passengers, the extent
of the calamity would be greatly re
dticed. This hope still remains.
News of the sinking of the liner
and the terrible loss of life In conse
quence came with all the greater
Bhock because hope had been buoyfd
up all day by reports that the steam
ship, although badly damaged, was
not In a sinking condition and that
aU her passengers had been safely
taken off. The messages were most
ly unofficial, however, and none came
direct from the liner, so a lurking fear
remained of possible bad news
There came flashing over the wires
from Cape Race, within 400 miles of
which the liner had struck the Ice
berg, word that at 2:20 o'clock, Mon
day morning, three hours am) flfty\
live minutes after receiving her death
blow, the Titanic had sunk.
The news came from the steamship
Caipathia, relayed by the White Star
Liner Olympic, and revealed that by
the time the Carpathia, outward bound
from New York and racing for the Ti
tanic on a wireless call, reached the
scene the doomed vessel had sunk.
I>ft on the Burface, however, were
lifeboats from the Titanic and In
them, as appears from the meager re
porta received were aome 86fl sur
vivors of the disaster. These, accord
ing to the advices, the Carpathla pick
ed up and Is now on her way with
them to New York.
For the rest, the scene as the Car
pathla came up was one of desola
tion. All that remained of the $lO.-
000,000 floating palace, on which near
ly fourteen hundred passengers had
been voyaging luxuriously to this side
of the Atlantic, were some bits of
wreckage. The biggest ship In the
world had gone down, snuffing out
In her downward plunge, It appears,
hundreds of human lives.
A significant line in the Cape Race
dispatch was the announcement that
of those saved by the Carpathla near
ly all were women and children.
Should It prove that no other vessel
picked up any passengers of the sink
ing liner this mfght mean that few
of the men on board have been saved,
aB the proportion of women and chil
dren among the passengers was large.
The same facts would likewise spell
the doom of practlcaly the entire
crew of about eight hundred and
In the cabins were 230 women and
children, but It Is not known how
many there were among the 740 third
class passengers.
In the first cabin there were 128
women and 15 children, and in the
second cabin 79 women and eight
Liner Was Insured for $5,000,000.
London. —The Titanic was insured
at Lloyds for J5.000.000, No definite
information is obtainable as to the
amount of valuables on board, but it
is generaly understood that the ves
sel took diamonds of the estimated
value of $5,000,000, consigned to deal
ers. She also took a large amount
of bonds. A member of a prominent
firm of underwriters said: "Even If
the Titanic reaches port her owners
will have to calculate on a loss of
at least $750,000, but if she becomes
a total loss It will be an extremely
serious matter.

aboard the 111-fated llper Titanic were

White Btar Officiate Talk.
New York.—Vice President Frank
lin of the White Star Line conceded
that thete had been "a horrible loss
of life" in the Titanic disaster. He
said that he had no Information to
disprove the dispatch from Cape Race
to the elfect that only 875 pf the
paasengers and crew had been res
cued. He said that the monetary loss
could not be estimated, although he
Intimated that It would run Into the
millions. "We can replace the mon
ey." he added, "but not the lives. It
Is horrible."

from President Taft was received by

once, would greatly appreciate." The
answer was; "Sorry to qay, I have

Miss Barton's Services to Humanity
Were Rscognizsd by Foreign
Washington.—Clara Barton, founder
of the American Red Cross Society,
died at her home in Glen Echo, Md.
The cause of her death was chronic
pneumonia, with which she was
stricken about a year ago. Her broth
er, Stephen Barton of Boston, was
with her when she died.
Miss Barton was born at Oxford,
Mass., In 1821. Miss Barton had been
confined to her home, "Red CrosS,"
at Glen Echo since last fall, when
she returned from a visit to New
England. It. was thought her trip
was beneficial, but soon afterward
she was taken severely 111.
She celebrated her 90th birthday
anniversary December 25, when she
received many messages of congrat
ulation from all parts of the world.
Clara Barton might probably be call
ed the Florence Nightingale of Amer
ica. Like her British prototype her
works of mercy were not confined to
her native land, but wore carried even
Into the eastern hemisphere. She Will
be written down in history as the
founder of the Red Cross in America,
but her powerful personality also
made an Indelible Impression upon
the international organization Itself
through her active participation in
the periodical conferences at Geneva,
Rome. Vienna and St. Petersburg.
During her lifetime she received
many decorations from foreign coun
tries In recognition of her services to
humanity and her varied experiences
have been recorded In permanent
form in her liberal contributions to.

New York. —Gen. Frederick D.
Grant, commander of the department
of the east and son of the famous
Civil war general, died suddenly st
the Hotel Buckingham, where he had
been secretly taken by his physicians.
Although there had been rumors of
€Kneral~ Grant's illness and reports
that he would never again take up
his duties on Governor's Island, news
came as a distinct shock to the pub
lic. According to Dr. Robert Abbe
and Dr. Edward B. Dench, his physi
cians. the death of the general was
caused by heart failure. He had been
suffering for some time, they assert
ed in an official statement, from "dia
betes and attendant digestive disturb
General Grant's death vacates the
post which, next to that of chief of
stair. Is regarded as the most Import
ant In the army—eommander-ln-chlef
of the eastern division. This posi
tion is of such Importance that It can
not long be permitted to remain va
cant. hence It Is probable that very
soon after the funeral It will be nec
essary to detail an officer of high
rank to the position, probably MaJ.

Electoral Fuss Decided by Law.
Washington.—Again a controversy
has arisen aa to the size of the elec
toral college which will choose the
next president. By some, it Is con
tended that the size of the present
house, rather than the new house to
be elected In November, Is the deter
mining factor, and the suggestion is
made that the department of Justice
be asked for an opinion. In I*l2
there were 218 elector*, though the
congress expiring March 4, 1812, con
tained only 178 members. A similar
situation exlated In 1832. again In
1872 and again In 1892, and the same
precedents were followed. There Is
no room for doubt that the electoral
college of thla year will consist of
531 members.
Drastic Measure Against Futures.
Washington.—Another anti-option
bill la being framed by the bouse
committee on agriculture, of which
Repreaentative John Lamb of Virginia
Is chairman and will be reported to
the house at an early date. No difficul
