Xew York Aug. IS. Henry Bruere
former city chamberlain who has re
turned here from Mexico City where
he was invited by Gen. Carranza to
systemize the government says the
Mexican government is so short of
cash that it is a problem one day to
know from where the next day's casn
is to come.
The 1917-11 military expenditure
alone is estimated st 127.000000 pesos
he eaid. The total expenditure in the
year of Madero'a administration he
said was 110.000.000 pesos. Despite
that the oil and mining interests a
Ions; suffering and remarkably re-
cuperative collection of interests are
doing more than ever before to help
finance the government there still
will be a deficit. Mr. Bruere said.
Congress has authorized president
Carranxa to borrow 150.000.000 pesos
but It Is not specified how or where.
Mr. Bruere declared Mexico badly
needs help but it must come from
within. He regretted that too many
of the ablest minds In the republic
have not yet turned their attention
to the work of reorganization.
He declared however that Mexico
has not reverted to barbarism but
that men are working in the fields
and the cities are resuming their
normal appearance. He declared or-
ganization peace and energy would
transform Mexico in a -fear and ex-
pressed the conviction that Mexico
would come through her present
difficulties safely if the great foreign
industrial interests would find a
basis "of cooperation with the govern-
ment and if foreign nations maintain
tlieir good will and patience.

1 Supt. Elliott To Receive In-
While rushing his work on the ex-
caatlons on the new postoffice
building. II. D. Johnson has incurred
the displeasure of some one who has
complained to the department of Jus-
tice that Mr. Johnson Is violating the
eight hour law by working his team-
sters nine hours a day. Mr. Johnson
who has been ill at home during the
past week d.d not make any state-

his teamsters who are Mexicans and
that there has hitherto been no
trouble resultant from this fact.

J. c Elliott superintendent of con-
struction for the government is dally
expecting a telegram which shall give
him definite instructions concerning
the new building in answer to the
request of the business men of El
Paso that it should have a large base-

a change would mean pushing the
huildiiiK two feet farther back In or-
der to make a place for the two addi-
tional steps. If the city lowers the
curb a it seems to consider doing
the cuilding will either have to be
raised ' 1-2 inches or else it will be

set farther back.
There is plenty of time for any
changes which may be ordered by the
government as the excavation has not

diminution of employment in our
mills and of equal importance cur-

proportion of export flour instead of
wheat and as the export orders for
flour will be given subject to the ap-
proval of the food administration
those mills who cooperate with the
