brains of the affair, not only gave his
time, services on the mat, and labor, but
he stood the expense of hiring the big

they would have done If they were get
ting money for their services. Oscar

Queen of Greece to
Overrule Monks on
Holy Mount Athos
VIENNA, Dec. 21 Tho Neucs Tageblatfs
Athens correspondent says Queen Olgn
of Orceco Intends to visit the twenty-one
monasteries on Mount Athos, eighty miles
to the southeast of Halonlkl, thus break
ing the rule prohibiting women to visit
the sacred mountain which had been
strictly observed for 1,600 years.
"Tho monks on the mountain," con
tinues the correspondent, "on many oc
casions have refused to permit royal
ladles to tlirtt them, always nxcustng
themselves behind the legend that tho
Virgin Mary with her Infant Christ vl
Ited the mountain and that dio woman
had been allowed) to do so since. But
now that the Greeks have conquered the
territory and the king and queen pro
posed a visit to the mountain, the monks
summoned their council and decided that
tlicy had no course but to rescind tho
Mount Athos, or the Holy mountain,
was the center of Greek theology and
learning In the middle nges and many
masterpieces of 'ancient Greek literature
still remain In the libraries there. The
Turkish government gave the monks al
most comploto autonomy. Aside from tho
twenty-one monasteries on the mountain
there arc numerous grottos, cells and
chapels. The monk population numbers
several thousand. Many of them aro
hermits and live In caves.

Justification for this demand by the
United States government Is declared-to
be found In tho numerous reports to tho
stato from every quarter to the general
effect that conditions h Mexico have
grown worse since the dispatch of Sec
retary Knox's note of protest last Sep
tember, and that there has been n marked
Increase in brigandage and In the kid
naping of Americans Tor ransom, and In
the levying of forced war loans by the
rebels on American mines and plantations.
There have come forward the three
members ot the self-conshtltuted com
mittee of Americans, representing the
tsrge plantation and mining Interests In
northern Mexico who from personal
knowledge were able to Inform the State
department of the various practices em
ployed by the rebel leaders to extort
money from the American managers and
foremen and of the comparative Indiffer
ence of the Mexican government officials
to the numerous appeals jot the American
Interests for protection from the raiders.
Also there have come tho memhws
of the senate subcommittee on foreign
relations, fresh from an Investigation at
