Sea Serpent Attacks
SAN DIEGO, Cal., Sept. 25.—De-
; daring it the duty of the United States
to Intervene and restore order In
j Mexico, United States Senator John
j D. Works in delivering the oration of
the day at the dedication of the site
of the monument of Juan Rodri-
guez Cabrillo took occasion today to
criticise severely conditions in Mex-
ico and the a'.Jt^de of the United
"Just to the south of us, almost
within reach 6f gunshot, our men are
being asaa: ginated and our women out-
raged daily," he said. "What are we
going to do about it?
"I believe a great mistake has been
; made for which we are responsible
under our guardiaii5hlp of the peo-
plei south of us, assumed under the

dealt too leniently with that situation.
It is the business and solemn duty
of our government to protect our cltl-
sens. I do not believe we have done
that adequately in Mexico. We have
sent our blue Jackets ashore in other
countries; why not in Mexico?
"I have no cgtlcism to make of
the efforts of the president of the
■United States. We shrink from in-
tervention and I believe the president
is Justified in his efforts to avoid it.
But these conditions canhot go on
Senator Works commended the ac-
tion of other powers in patiently wait-
ing for the United States' policy to
work Itself out.
Believes Crisis Passing
WASHINGTON, Sept. 25.—Presi-
dent Wilson took the position today
,. that the policy of moral suasion
adopted by the United States toward
Mexico had accomplished its two car-
dinal purposes—to obtain assurances
that there would be a constitutional
election and that Provisional Presi-
dent Huerta would not be a candidate
to succeed himself. Advices received
here describing in detail the prepara-
tions being made for the election of
October 26 and stating also that Gen-
eral Huerta would not be a candidate
but would support Frederico Gamboa,
Mexican minister of foreign affairs,
thjpt nominee of the Catholic party, en-
couraged President Wilson and Secre-
tary Bi.-an to believe that the Huer-
ta government was carrying out what
the United States had emphasized in
the Lind negotiations as the essen-
tial features Of a satisfactory settle-
ment of the revolutionary troubles.
The president realizes that it will
not be immediately possible to Judge
whether tfre processes of the election
are actually constitutional and will
withhold decision for some time a.T to
whether the choice of that election
will be recognized by the United
States. Llko'Ihood that foreign gov-
ernments will await the Judgment of
the United States before extending
recognition ie being impressed upon
the Mexican authorities. It Is stated,
with a view to 'insuring free choice.
However, doubt as to the value of the
coming election as expressing the will
of the Mexican people was cast by
constitutionalists headquarters here
today In the issuance of a statement
■aying Its supporters, extending over
many Mexican states would not go to
The Next Step.
Many persons familiar with the
purposes of the admixiis. atlon here
predicted that the next step In the
policy of the United States would be
an effort to show indirectly to the
constitutionalists the necessity of par-
ticipating In the election.
In this connection it was pointed
out by officials today that Mcxlcan
laW would hold the approaching elec-
tion valid and constitutional If a ma-
jority of the polling precincts of the
republic w§r® shown to have been In
legal opefpHon The claim of the
Mexican government that it controls
t" j territory in which th«e bulk of the
population of Mexico resides will be
tfiikeh Into account by the Washing-
ton administration In Judging the
coming election. Consuls throughout
the republic will report tx> the state
department their opinion of the fair-
ness of the election and if the cov-
ernmeut elections is recognized the
policy of neutrality between the fac-
tloi.» would b j declared ended and the
f United States by exportation of arms
would Jnd Its moral support to the
government set up in the Mexican
President Wilson in discussing the
situation with callers spoke of - the
practical difficulties of a constitu-
tional election In Mexico at present
but regarded With satisfaction the de-
termined effort of authorities hi Mex-
ico City to com.ly with the principal
suggestions made In the negotiations

CLEBURNE, Tex., Sept. 'The
cause of the death of a white man

CONCORD, N. H., Sept. 25—That
Attorney General James Tuttle has
advised Governor Felker to honor th|
request of the state of NeW York for
the extradition of Harry K. Th4,W,
was learned upon apparently gQod
authority today. The attorney gen-
eral is said to take the attitude that
the New York papers are In proper
form and that it is unnecessary for
the governor to go below their sur-
face in an Inquiry Ifito the facts of
the case upon which they are ^>aged.
But Governor Felker, who is him-
self a lawyer, is understood to attach'
importance to securing further infOD-7
mation op the subject of the reported
indictment of Thaw by the Dutchess
county, (N. Y.) grand Jury for con-
spiracy, in connection with his escap-
ing from the Matteawan asylum for
the insane. No Indictment has been
made public, but Wm. Travers Je-
rome said in arguing on New York's
peUtlon for extradition before Gov-
ernor Felker Tuesday that an Indict-
ment had been found but had been
kept secret at his request It Is stat-
ed unless the governor learns1 defin-
itely Just what atUtude has been t*teen
by the Dutchess county grand Jury
he will defer his decision in regard to
signing the extradition warrant ,
It is believed here that the gove^or
will grant the request made by Thaw's
counsel today that they be allowed
until October 6 to file additional
briefs In the extradition matter.
For two hours today Thaw strolled
about the down town streets and -su-
burbs with Police Officer C. D. Stev-
ens, attracting only casual attention.
