WASHINGTON, Sept. 21.—Condi-
tions in Mexican territory controlled
by General Carranza are rapidly be-
coming normal, according to advices
to the state department from Ameri-
can Consul Blocker at Piedras Negras.
Telegraphic communication, which for
ninny months lias been paralyzed, now
Is open to Mexico ('it/ as well as Sal-
tillo, Monterey, Zacatecus, San Luis

The dispatch of mails to Mexico
City has been resumed, according to
an announcement from the postofjice
department here today and mail "for
the capital and outlying districts,
which had been accumulating at the
border, is being forwarded via I.aredo.
Consul Blocker, describing condi-
tions at Piedras Negras, stated that
the Carranza administration Was ex-
tending guarantees to all foreigners
and had distributed circulars to sol-
diers warning them that any molesta-
tion of peaceable people and their
property would result in severe meas-
ures of punishment.
Activity at Juarez.
There was no political development
1n the Mexican situation here today
except for the arrival of General Man-
uel Chfto, recently In the field wltb
General Villa, who Joined Roque Gon-
zales Oarza and others who are anx-
ious to Is. their viewpoints before
Secretary Tensing and the Pan-Amer-
Jcan conferees. They will not be re-
ceived at tjie state department until
the return of the secretary next week.
Tn the meantime the activity of Gen-
eral Villa'* forces is being watched
with considerable Interest. According
to official Information he has ordered
a general withdrawal of his forces to-
ward Juarea, the purpose apparently
being to transfer them to Sonora. The
Villa agency here emphatically con-
tradicted reports that the mobilization
of Villa troops at Juarez had any sin-
ister aspect with respect to relations
with the United States. As a precau-
tion, however, Acting Secretary Breek-
enrfdge of the war department after a
conference with President Wilson or-
dered the Seventh Infantry and the
Fourth field artillery regiments from
Galveston to strengthen the garrison
at El Paso, bringing its full strength
to three regiments of Infantry, a reg-
iment of cavalry and twenty-eight
pieces of artillery, a total of about

In the district east and west of Kl

cinity of Brownsville he has 5,000

any lawlessness or outbreaks In or
near El Paso but in view of the fact
that Villa's forces were reported to be
breaking up into small bands, border
raids were considered not unlikely to

BROWNSVILLE. Tex., Sept. 21.—
The fourth day of uninterrupted peace
on this border was reported by army
patrols today. A variety of causes for
quietude was assigned, including
heavy rains, which made outdoor ac-

at Dantzler, Miss.
NEW YORK. Sept. 21—The an-
nouncement made by suffragists that
there would be a homemade food at
the "Votes For Women" restaurant, 70
Wall street, New York, caused such a
stir among the brokers that Wall
street was alive from 11 o'clock till S
with animated capitalists, who raided
the suffrage wagons and filled the
lunc'irooui so full that even suffra-
gists had little chance to talk. Suf-
frage fans were a popular feature, and
more than 500 were given away, with
crowds clamoring for more. Next to
these came rattles for the men to take
home to the babies. Suffrage sun-
daes, cooling beverages made princi-
pally of 'peaches, were handed right
and left. The lunchroom presented a
pleasing spectacle to the woman suf-
frage party. The men crowded the
tables and against the walls, so Mrs.
James Lees Laidtaw, Mrs. Antoinette
Funk and the other speakers had a
hard time to make themselves heard.
The suffrage dainties vanished almost
Immediately, . and then the crowd
poured Into the streets to watch the
fifty or more suffragists wedge them-
selves 'Into seven automobiles and
start for the Stock Exchange. In front
of this building the suffrage buglers
played "Annie Laurie," "Nellie Gray"
and other ditties and were rewarded
by seeing the traders push out on the
balconies, listen attentively and give
way to lusty cheers. No policemen
were needed! al! 'went smoothly as any
social affair. Only one violent anti
was found—a man who proclaimed
loudly that he couldn't read, didn't
want to read, and if he could read he
wouldn't read such stuff as the suf-
fragists printed anyway. He became
so loud about the blessedness of illit-
eracy that a grinning policeman made
him "move on." Although they had
intended'leaving directly after lunch-
eon the suffragists found their guests
so attentive that it was well after 5
o'clock when the last suffrage auto
vanished. Mrs. James Lees Laidlaw

toward financing the war. which is
now costing Great Britain nearly $2S,»

Today's budget is the third since the J
out break ot' hostilities, calls for tho
most drastic and far-reaching taxes
in the history of Ihe country and in- -
volves even free trade.
Hereafter automobiles, bicycles, mo-
lion picture films, clocks, watches,
musical instruments, plate glass and
hats will pat a tax of .13 1-3 per ^-ent
ad valorem, though, as Mr. McKenna
explained, the objects of such taxation
are "purely temporary and without
regard to a permanent effect on
trade." being primarily designed to
discourage imports and remedy tl»»
IVutuivs of .Nictt Schedule.
The principal blow fell on Incomes,
the existing tax on incomes not only
being jumped forty per cent but Its
scope widened so as to catch even
working men earning as little as four-
teen dollars weekly. The very
wealthy must contribute to the gov-
ernment more "than one-third their
revenue. The one cent mail will be
abolnhed entirely and the weight
heretofore carried in the mails fori
two cents will be reduced. The rate
on telegrams, which is twelve eenta
for twelve words, is increased to
eighteen cents and there is also to bt>
a proportionate increase in telephone"
The sugar tax though largely in-
creased. will mean only an extra pen-
ny per pound burden for the general
public for the sale of all sugar is now
regulated by the royal commission,
which will reduce the price to refim-«
ers and dealers.
General debate on the budget is to
be held, but it was appaernt that Mr,
McKenna's suggestions were received
by a virtually unanimous house.
The chancellor said incidentally,
(hat he would have occasion to call
