throughout Mexico from starvation.
This statement was made by J.

Mr. O'Connor replied to those who
have charged Red Cross workers with
giving untrue reports of conditions
id Mexico, by Baying that he had data
showing that In the federal district
about Mexico City, in October, he
dally number of death due'to starva
tion was about 220. He added that
he considered It a conservative esti
mate to say that at least 2,000 were
dying every day in the whole of
Melco, from lack of food or on ac
count of dlsese attendant upon fam
ine conditions.

Secretary Estimates Billion and
Quarter Needed for Government
Budget Next Year.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8. Radical
changes In the income tax to reach
thousands not now subject to its pro
visions and to improve the machin
ery of collection were suggested to
congress today In the annua1, report
of Secretary McAdoo as means by
which the greater part' of the addl-J
tional revenue needed to pay for the
administration national defense plans
can be provided. The secretary pro-"
posed to lower the exemption limits
so as to tax married persons with in
comearwi low-as $3,000. and; Single
persons with 2,000 Incomes. The
exemptions now are $4,000 and
$3,000 respectively.
Other qags-eatlons.
' Increases to the collection force, a re
quirement that returns must be made of
gross income in jplace of net Income, and
a change so that the tax shall not be
withheld at the source, were among Mr.
MoAdoo's .other suggestions. He made
no estimate of tne number of persons
who might be taxed If the amendments
were adopted nor the amount that might
be expected, but in connection with his
request for a larger collection force be
pointed out that examination of the past
personal and corporation returns showed
that 63 per cent of those inspected dis

government. On the basis of the ex

Many Evasions of Law.

It cost him S3.40 for his breakfast in the
morning. The delegates took breakfast
at the Paxton, under thS unique system
of weighing in as prise fighters do. Only
in this case it was a matter of each
man paying 1 cent a pound on his weight
for his breakfast. That was how Som
mers of Ottumwa happened to pay $3.40
for breakfast. Right there Is where Joe
McCaffery ot Omaha got by for $1.19
cents, and , the boys accuoed him ot
starving for a month for the event.
How They Started.
During the afternoon the delegates told
how they mads their first dollar In life.
Picking berries, running errands, chasing
a messenger route, trapping and a lot
of other stunts showed up in the accounts.
but few if any made their first dollar in
the hotel business.

less he Jumped a train Tuesday night and
rode all night in order to attend the

after that hour. It was a strictly Infor
mal affair, and the delegates .turned
themselves loose with ll the pepper ..they
had left after the big celebration at the
smoker the preceding night.

Communipaw Reported Taken to a
Port Not Named in Message
from Page.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8. The State
department received late today a sec
ond dispatch from Ambassador Page
at Rome stating that he had been in
formed that the Communipaw had
been captured and taken to a port
unnamed in his message. The source
of his information and the nation
ality of the captors were not men
tioned. The first official advices from Am
bassador Page reporting that an
American ship, "hold to be the Stand
ard Oil tanker Communipaw," had
been torpedoed and sunk, were re
ceived during the forenoon by the
State department. Ambassador
Page's source of information was not
divulged, but it was thought likely
that he had received the same re
port as that transmitted In press dis
patches last night from Rome.
No confirmation of the news dispatches
from London, sent sfter last night's press
cablegram from Home, reporting tha
Communlpaw's safe arrival at Alexan
dria had been received by the depart
ment. NEW YORK, Dec. S.-A dispatch from
Alexandria, Egypt, apparently confirma
tory of the report received by London
Lloyds that the oil tanker Communlptw
was safe was received today by the
Standard Oil offices. This message stated
that the Communipaw reached Alexan
dria on Bunday last and would sail for
New York Tuesday (yesterday).
Tha dispatch came from Captain Nord
strom ot tho Communipaw and was given
cut by David T. Warden, manager of
the foreign shipping department of the
Standard Oil .company ot New Jersey.
The Communipaw could make only nine
knots an hour, Mr. Warden said, and,
assuming It left Alexandria on Tuesday,
or evon Monday, it should not have gone
3SM miles to a point near Tobruk, Tripoli,
off where the original cable dispatch
from Borne said the ship had been
struck. vThls dispatch was filed at Rome
at 7:45 p. m. Tuesday, the day the
Standard Oil company had been advised
the Communipaw loft Alexandria.
"I feet sure the Communipaw is safe,"

Chancellor Goes .
to Consult Kaiser
' AMSTERDAM. Dec. S (Via London.)
Despatches from Berlin state that Dr.
von Bethman-Hollweg, the Oerman Im
perial chancellor, has gone to confer
with Emperor William at army head
quarters. It is said that the purpose
of his visit Is to discuss with the em-
peror the details of the chancellor's
coming speech In the Helena tag, which
j Is awaited with feverish Intereat by the
1 public
I Seldom haa there been such a demand
' for seats In the galleries of the Itelch

Germany's Intentions regarding the
Balkans and the possibilities of peace
are the chief topics upon which th
chancellor Is expected to give light.

Ramon that French Have Been

Not Confirmed.
LONDON, Dec. 8. With the Ser
bian armies in retreat behind the
Albanian and Montenegrin frontiers,
it is reported the bulk ot the German
and Bulgarian armies Is being con
centrated against the allied armies
holding the southeast corner of Ser
bia. Heavy fighting has been in pro
gress there for the last few days.
There is no confirmation of hints
from various sources that the French
troops have been forced definitely to
abandon the posltlonse held by them
since the beginning of tho campaign.
The fall of Monastlr and the south
ward progress of the German and
Bulgarian forces, however, have
placed the northern wing of the
French expedition in a precarious
situation, and withdrawal from tho
angle formed by the Vardar and
Cerna rivers apparently has begun.
Arrival of Preah Forces.
Constant arrival of frsh forces and
war materials at Salonlkl give evidence
that the allies have no Intention of aban
doning their efforts In this region.
Although the Oermans have announced
the capture of Ikep, Montenegro, the
pursuing Austrian and Bulgarian armlea
evidently are confronted with a harder
task on the Montenegrin frontier than
elsewhere. Tha Montenegrins continue
to offer spirited resistance and to check
the Invaders wherever possible by sharp
counter attacks.
