Aguinaldo Trip to Vets'
Meet Unlikely; No Funds
Manila, P. I.. Tulv 18. (By A. P.)
-!-Em!!io Aguinaldo, formerly leader
of the Filipino revolutionists, who
had planned to attend the Spanish
Wsr Veterans' convention in Los
Angeles, likely will be unable to make
the trip owing to lack of public funds
to finance it. ;
It was said today in official circles
that the independence mission to the
United States had failed to set aside i
the 50.000 pesos necessary to cover
the expenses of Aguinaldo and his
staff on this visit to the Los Angeles
convention. 'm
A Filipino committee is attempting
to raise the needed amount, but it
is not believed it will succeed, owing
to the short time left in which to

Harding Receives
De la Huerta as
Mexican Citizen
Minister of Finance Confers
With President on Recogni
tion of Republic
Progress Made.
Washington, July 18. (By A.. P.)
Some progress toward removal of
obstacles to American recognition ot
Mexico was said to have been made
at a rather lengthy conference at the
White House between President
Harding, Adolpho de la Huerta, Mexi
can minister of finance, and ttrg.
Gen. J. A. Ryan, retired, representa
tive of Associated American Oil in
terests in Mexico. The Mexican
minister, it was explained, was re
ceived by the president as "a Mexi
can citizen."
Senator Bursum, republican, New
Mexico, was also present at the con
ference and later Mr. De la Huerta
and Gen. Ryan called at the State
department and were received by
Secretary Hughes. All the discus
sions, however, it wa9 emphasized,
were "unofficial" as would be held
with any Mexican citizen occupying
responsible position. '
Mr. De la Huerta, it was said,
gave the president information on
Mexican policies and threw light on
diplomatic difficulties which have
contributed to the deadlock in the
program for recognition of Mexico
by the United States. The president,
it was said, was interested in this
statement concerning the political and
economic situation in Mexico.
The ouestion of recognition, it was
said, did not enter directly into the
conversation, although it was indi
cated that the discussion of Mexican
conditions had an indirect bearing,
because of their informative char
acter, on the recognition question.
In conversations with other officials.
Mr. De la Huerta was understood
to have received ' suggestions as to
means for clearing up the deadlock
in the recognition situation, which he
probably will send to Mexican offi
cials upon his return to Mexico City.

Charge Made by
Lenroot Enlivens
Debate on Tariff
Wisconsin Senator Declares
Threats Used to Keep
Republicans in Line on
Cotton Schedule-
Washington, July 18. A charge
by senator Lenroot, republican,
Wisconsin, that threats to slash rates
in the agricultural schedule had been
used in an effort to keep republican
senators in line on rates in the cotton
schedule of the pending tariff but,
enlivened debate on that measure. In
took to task some of the colleagues for
to task some of the colleagues for
what he termed "blindly following"
the finance committee majority on
eports on the bill, urging that they
form "independent judgment."
Senator Lenroot, who has been
leading republican opposition- to
many of the rates in the cotton sec
tion, had just lost the fight to cut
the committee duty on knit cotton
underwear from SO per cent ad
valorem to 40 per cent ad valorem.
The vote was 29 to 26.
After his charge about the threats,
Senator Lenroot offered a second
amendment to make the rate 45 per
cent and that was approved, 28 to 27,
with 11 republicans supporting it.
This was theonly case in which
the committee was overturned, but
on all items except handkerchiefs
and mufflers, substantial reductions
in the original rates were proposed
by the committee majority. The duty
on underwear also was a revision of
the original recommendation, but
Senator Lenroot argued that the pro
posed increase of 20 per cent over
the present rate was unjustified, as
the duty now in force practically was
prohibitive.
Nomination Confirmed
Washington, July 18. The nomi
nation of James J. Wilkerson to be
federal judge for the northern Illinois
district, succeeding Landis, was con
firmed by the senate.

Peace negotiations in the railway
strike again were in the fore today,
E. V. Grable, president of the main
tenauce of way employes' union, and
various railway executives had con
ferences with members of the rail
road labor board in efforts to avoid
further walkouts, and to obtain
basis for settlement of the shopmen's
strike.
While President Harding was
known to have a definite plan for
peace, it was believed he would take
no immediate action.
Although approximately 15.000 sta
tionary firemen and oilers were re
ported added to the list of strikers
yesterday, no further addition to
the list was expected until after the
meeting of the Maintenance of Way
Men s grand lodge at Detroit Friday.
The meeting originally was set for
Thursday, but later was changed to
allow grand lodge officers from long
distances to be present at the open
ing session. The 25,000 maintenance
of way men already on strike would
not be outlawed "for the moment,"
Mr. Grable said.
Several hundred Texas members
of the 16th standard railroad organ
izatious met in Waco today to dis
cuss the strike and to determine
what action they might take.

Colorado Troops to Quit
Mines if Coal Cost Boosted
Denver, Colo., July 18. State
troops now patrolling Colorado's
northern coal fields will be with
drawn unless coal operators rescind
recent increases in prices, Gov.
Oliver H. Shoup announced today.
Governor Shoup issued a state
ment charging it was the "height of
ingratitude" for coal operators to in
crease prices while the state was
paying for guards to enable the
mines to operate. The statement de
clares that wages of the miners have
not been' increased and that "un
necessary advances of the price of
fuel are not to the public interest at
this time . . . particularly when
the nation is , now . facing a fuel
shortage." v ,
"As governor," the statement con
cludes. "I mobilized a part of the na
tional guard and authorized the en
listment of additional state rangers
to protect operating' mines and min
ers who wanted work. I did this in
the interest of the public at large, not
for the protection of any one's pock
et book."

"I know my husband bought the

announced. Doolittle 1 will hop off
at . Kelly Field on the morning of
August 4 tor Jacksonville, JMa., and
a few days later will begin a dash
from the Atlantic coast to San Diego,
Cal., traveling in a specially built
De Haviland plane.
Authority for the flight was grant

in Bohemian Quarter
Burns All Day.
Three Persons .iMissing
New York. July 18.-(By A. P.)
A stubborn, puzzling warehouse fire
in the Greenwich Village section of
the city broke out about 8 Tuesday
morning, burned through the day.
and was still blazing at niaht after
nearly 4,000,000 gallons of water had
been played on the flames by 40 hose
lines.
"The toughest fire I've ever en
countered," was the way Acting
rire Chiet "moky Joe Martin put
it to Mayor Hylan when he returned
to direct his men after having been
blown out of a doorway by one of a
series of explosions which rocked the
lower west side.
With the flames checked.' but not
conquered, investigation showed that
two firemen had been killed, three
more were missing, about 15 persons
had been taken to hospitals seriously
injured and more than 175 had re
ceived first aid treatment at three
emergency stations opened by the
Red Cross. In addition, about 500
families were driven from their homes
in the Bohemian quarter, and barred
by the. police from returning, lest
the warehouse walls collapse.
Smoke Blinds Firemen.
The outstanding features of the fire
was the mysterious, pungent black
smoke that rolled out of the building
soon after the first of the blasts.
It came in never-ending clouds,
settling down about the base of the
storehouse and blinding the fighters
so that they could not see the flames
they were combating. Though a
midsummer sun blazed down until
late in the afternoon, when a thun
derstorm broke, the firemen found
it black as midnight and rigged
searchlights in their efforts to pierce
the enfolding darkness.
.Baffled as to the cause of the fire,
experts of the city sought all day to
solve the mystery. "
Fire Commissioner Drennan, who
declared that no permit had been is
sued to store explosives or chemicals
in the warehouse, worked hard to as
certain what was housed within the
four blazins walls.' Finally police
men were sent through the milling
thousands who had gathered to watch
the blaze, paging omciais of the
Manufacturers Transit company, op
erating the six-story warehouse.
Property Damage Heavy..
Although the property damage
could not be accurately estimated
without a check of the contents, said
to include newsprint, rubber, rice and
eosom salts, it was evident that it
would run into the hundreds of thou
sands of dollars.
One story, which particularly at
tracted attention of the investigators
was told members of the police bomb
squad by Dr. Anthony Paone, a den
tist who lives opposite the warehouse.
Paone, who turned in the first
alarm, asserted that just before the
first exolosion he had seen three men
with a pushcart stop in front of the
building, carrying in several boxes
and then emerge. He advanced the
theory that incendiaries had started
the blaze. ...
Another puzzling story was told by
Mrs. toseoh Ash and four of her
neighbors, who live m an apartment,
house on the same block as tne ware
rouse. These five homeless ones
maintain that throughout the night
thev had heard mysterious, muffled
explosions.
The known dead are:
Fire Lieutenant J. J. Schoppe
mever killed bv falling debris.
Fireman James Carroll, attached
to a Brooklyn company, killed when
his engine struck a curb while re
sponding to an alarm.
Doctor Overcome.
Dr. Harrv M. Archer, an honorary
deoutv fire chief, fell a victim to
the fumes while treating tne mjurea.
Overcome by smoke, he was car
ried to a Red Cross station, where
the nurses found he also suffered
from numerous gashes.
The whole quarter was thrown
into a panic with the first blast,
which broke windows in St. Vin
cent's hospital, at Seventh avenue
and Thirteenth street.
After the terror of the explosions
had subsided, the "villagers" began
co-operating with the authorities in
relief work.
While city chemists studied the
flames to determine what was caus
ing the heavy smoke and filled test
tubes with water pouring trom, the
burning building for the purpose of
analysis, the artists threw open their
studios to exhanted firemen.

Out Danger of
Modern School
Moral Lepers Doing Devil's
Work in Every Big Univer
sity, Says Walther League
Speaker.
Rev. A. Haentzschel of Madison
Wis., speaking on "The Students'
Walher League," pointed out the
dangers threatening the student who
goes to a modern university.
"Every large institution of learn
ing has its moral lepers and pet verts
who are , systematically doing the
devil's work," he said. "And do not
forget that the student brings -along
the tempter in his own flesh.
"The young student will be faced
with other dangers in college and
university. Bound up with 'brilliant
presentations of truth, he may be
offered atheism, materialism or the
ravings of science gone mad. What
wonder if at first he is puzzled and
then passes from perplexity to doubt
and from doubt to rejection of the
priceless truths Which the spirit of
uod has engrafted on his heart.
Estranged in College.
"I could tell you of Lutheran
students who passed in a few years
from the faith to an extreme where
thev no lonsrer asked with Pilate.
'What is truth?' but claimed like the
assassins in the age of the crusades,
that nothing is true and that there is
neither God nor devil. In every city
you will find doctors, lawyers,
judges, bankers and prominent men
of every kind who were confirmed as
Lutherans, but who . became es
tranged from the "Lutheran church,
at least inwardly, during their col
lege days. .
