When the Mexican-American joint

given an opportunity to refer to their
government a full account of the pro
posals made by the American com
mission after Secretary of Interior
Lane,- chairman of the commission,
had secured from President Wilson
his approval of the plan.. They are
unwilling to sign the agreement as it
stands, however, even after certain
modifications had been made, unless
sanctioned ,by Carranza, to whom it
was planned that Alberto J. Fani, one
of the commissioners, should render
a report in person. -
Mr. Fani made preparations for

ment was the admonition to the Mexi
cans that this government would re
serve the right to pursue across the
j border into Mexico any bandit force
f that had crossed the international
boundary line into the United States.

Retirement of M. Sturmer Gen
erally Regarded as Victory
for Liberal Element.
London, Nov. 24. Alexander Tre
poS, Russian minister of railways, has
been appointed premier, according to
a Reuter dispatch from Petrograd;
The retiring premier, M. Sturmer, by
an imperial ukase has been appointed
grand chamberlain of the imperial
court, retaining his functions as a
member of the council of the empire.
Fetrograd newspapers say that the
appointment of M. Trepoff as-premier
implies the necessity that the govern
ment make a communication to Par
liament explaining the impending
problems connected with the work of
the government.
The retirement of IJremier Sturmer
and the appointment of M. Trepoff as
his successor probably are outgrowths
of what has been referred to in a
few carefully censored Petrograd dis
patches recently as a serious political
crisis. The change apparently im
plies a victory for the liberal elements
of Russia over the bureaucratic re
gime, for M. Stunner always has
been prominent in the affairs of the
Russian bureaucracy, while M. Tre
poff in fne past has engaged in a
variety of reform wor'.;.
A recent Petrograd dispatch quoted
Paul Milukoff, one of the prominent
liberal leaders, as saying an agree
ment had been reached between the
government and the Duma which was
entirely satisfactory to the represent
atives of the people, but there had
been no previous intimation that this
would result in the retirement of the
premier. In fact, a dispatch filed in
Petrograd Wednesday quoted the well
informed Russky Slovo to the effect
that M. Sturmer was convinced the
crisis had passed and that the exist
ing order would Nmain without
change for the present at least. (
Man at Spalding
Not Jean Crones, Is
Word of Detectives
Spalding, Neb., Nov. 24. (Special
Telegram.) Detective Sergeant John
F. Aiken of Chicago tonight after a
-visit to the farm of John Zahn, where
the man suspected of beyig Jean
Crones, the Chicago poisoner, was
working, declared he was not Crones.
The detective will return to Chicago
in the morning, leaving the suspect
peacefully, shucking corn, ten miles
out iu the country, as he has been all
along without being put under arrest.
' The suspect gave- his '.ftame as
Charles Lucas and said he was born
in Germany and has traveled over the
world) having been in nearly a(l its
targe cities. He said he came to the
United States in 1905. He says he
has a brother in Philadelphia.
The Chicago officers, says Marshal
W. J. Byrnes of Spalding, made care
ful measurements of the man . and
while the resemblance to Crones was
striking, still they were positive he
was not the much wanted criminal. A
member of the club, who. was well
acquainted with Crones accompanied
the detective and was equally positive
the suspect was not the man sought.

Six Persons Stricken
With Trichinosis
i Wallace, S. D., Nov. 24.-(Special.)
Trichinosis has appeared : in the
family of a farmer living some miles
from here and has. created alarm, al-
rthough there have thus far been no
deaths and all those affected are be
lieved to be beyond danger. Six of
the seven members of the family were
affected. The only member of the
family to thin far escape is a 1-year-old
baby. The cases are the result of
eating pork which had not been
cooked sufficiently, and the first cases
of the kind to be-reported in this ter
ritory for a number of years. Mr.
and Mrs. W. M. -Krthart were the
first members of the family to de
velop the disease, their children, with
the exception of the baby, being taken
ill in rapid succession afterward.
When the disease first developed it
was believed to be typhoid fever, but
proved to be the dreaded trichinosis.
The recovery in such cases always is
unusually slow compared with many
other diseases.

The hill of complaint was filed
by Gardiner Lattirop,. Robert Dunlan,
William R. Smrth-solicitbrs for the
Santa Fe, and Walker D. Hints, of
counsel. . It asks that:
"The defendants, and each of them,
and each and all of their attorneys,

purpose of enforcing any alleged right

that the aforesaid act of congress, and
particularly Sections 1, 3, and 4

The Santa Fe system employs
1,710 engineers, 1,766 firemtn, 1,306
conductors and 2,458 bnakemen or
flagmen, a total of 7,240 employes af
fected by the Adamson law. Substan
tially all of these are members of the
defendant organizations.
. The bill of complaint includes
tables giving the present compensa
tion rates of its trainmen. It quotes
President Wilson's address to con
gress' urging the passage of a law
to prevent a strike, and it quotes the
Adamson law in full. The full title
of the law is "An act to establish an
eight-hour day for employes of car
riers engaged in interstate and foreign
commerce, and for other purposes."
The complaint insists that as "the
whole system of compensation in
train service is based on mileage be
tween terminals the mandate of the
law for a standard eight-hour day,
is impossible of fulfillment. It also
asserts that the company would be
deprived of its property without due
process of law.
The Santa Fe solicitors- have filed
similar suits in every federal court
district in which the company oper
ates trains, but the only 0nc set for
hearing is the one in Kansas, the
home state of the corporation.

Maker of Automatic Firearms
and Smokeless Powder Ex
pires at London. "
London, Nov. 24. Sir Hiram
Maxim, inventor of the automatic sys
tem of firearms, died at his home here
early this morning. .
Sir Hiram Maxim was born in San
grville, Me., on February S, 1840. He
was a descendant of English Puritans
who were among the early settlers of
Plymouth county, Massachusetts.
After a meager schooling he went to
work in a machine shop and later was
employed in the machine works of his
uncle, Levy Stevens, at Fitchburg,
Mass. At 28 he was a draftsman in
a large steamship building concern in
New York City, where he invented a
new locomotive headlight which went
-mto general use-. - He- also -dtd" mudl
to perfect automatic gas macmnes tor
lighting private houses. In 1877 he
took up the question of electricity and
was among the first to make dynamo
electric machines and electric lamps
in the United States. He took out a
great many patents on electrical ma
chinery and in 1881' was made a chev
alier of the Legion of Honor by Pres
ident Grevy of France.
The Maxim automatic gun was in
vented in 1884 in London and was im
mediately adopted by the British gov
ernment, which used it in the war with
Matabele. The gun fired 600 rounds
a minute and caused such slaughter
that Parliament seriously discussed
the question as to whether its use was
justified. Some years later Sir Hiram,
created a baronet by Queen Victoria
after having become naturalized as an
Englishman, invented the first smoke
less powder. , t
In 1894 Sir Hirmam Maxim in
vented a heavier than air flying ma
chine which raised itself from the
ground carrying a driver and passen
ger. This was nine years before the
first practicable airplane was created
by the Wright brothers. Sir Hiram's
machine Vas a ponderous affair and
broke down in its early trial. In 1915
the inventor was appointed a member
of the inventions board created by
the government to meet the needs of
the war.

the following farewell words of Em
peror Francis Joseph to his people,
army and navy, according to a Vienna
dispatch to Reuter's' by way of Am
sterdam: "To my beloved peoples I express
my heartiest thanks for their loyalty

The consciousness of this attachment
has done me good and strengthened
me in fulfilling my imperial duties.
May they continue to observe tie
same patriotic feelings toward my
"My army and navy, 1 remember
with feelings of deepest thanks for
their bravery, loyalty and devotion.
Their victories gave me joyful pride
and their unmerited mishaps painful
sorrow. The excellent spirit which
at all times has animated my army

gives me confidence that my succes
sor can also count on them not less
than 1 did."

Thorns Says Vast Sums for Ex
tension of Traffic Facilities
Must Be Obtained.
Washington,. Nov. 24. Railroads
will need $1,250,000,000 additional cap
ital annually for the next ten or
twelve years to increase their facili
ties to handle the country's growing
commerce,. Alfred P. Thorn, counsel
fgor the railway executives' advisory
committee, told the congressional rail
road investigating committee today,
continuing his statement on behalf of
the railroads begun yesterday. About
$250,000,000 a year additional will be
required, he said, to refund maturing
indebtedness, . iA -v-. . - : '
' To attract investors. Mr. Thorn sug
gested ' that -the federal regqlatior4
snouia replace me present system oi
authority divided between 'the states
and the central government. He cited
examples of injustice "and hampering
of railroad financing caused by state
control of issues by interstate rail
roads. 4
Referring to the need of additional
railroad facilities Mr. Thomisaid:
It has been found that the wealth
of the country has been increasing
at the rate or 8 or 9 per cent a year
and the same ratio of increase has
held good as to the demand for trans
portation. As the forces which have
affected the growth and development
of the fast apparently still continue in
full operation and may be expected
to continue for the next ten or fifteen
years at least the investment in rail
road facilities to meet the large re
quirements of the future must conse
quently grow at a corresponding rate
of increase." The estimate of $1,250,
000,000 for additional transportation
facilities includes nothing tor exten
sions into new territory, he added.
"Where ia this money or any sum
approximating it to come from?
asked Mr. Thorn. "This problem is
one of vital interest to the public be
cause on its successful solution de
pends the commercial facilities of the
country. Would it do to confront the
investor when asking for this great
investment with a situation where the
revenues of the railroads are riot sub
ject to the control of the investors,
but are fixed and limited not only bv
governmental authority, but by many J
ii,irnnrrtiti;itj1 etat ai.tlmritina in nn'l
way responsible to each other and
where the railroads cannot control
and the government cannot and does
not limit the expense account." ,
