Administration officials made no
comment on 'he long excerpts of General Huerta's message to the Mexican
congress, published here today. II Is
understood that the administration
does not attach much Importance to
the document, though there nre passages In It that did not pasB without
careful  notice.
Same old Story.
Huerta's statement that the "tenseness of dlplomtlc relations" was with
the government of the United States,
"although luckily not with the people," Invoked little attention as the
snme sentiment previously had been
voiced by the Mexico City officials and
the answer from h��re was the enthusiastic reception which President Wilson rccelwl when he ntldressed congress and the sueeches supportlm, hint

vessels would he kept in Mexican waters Indefinitely If the United States
deemed It necessary for the protection

Should an election be held, the at-

From what the police have learned
of   the   case   It   appears   that   a   man
walked "P Welt Lodge avenue yester- !

The nirl cried out that ne was li-T j

Toronto, 8ept. 17.���Wal'er Watkln-
son, the plasterer who sustained such
peculiar Injuries on Saturday In a tall
from a building which was In course
of construction at Stop 18 on the
Kingston road, died ln the general
hospital vi sterday afternoon.
In a full of seventeen feet Watkln-
son sustained a fractured arm, numerous bruises to his head and f '.co, th"
roof of his inoutli was broken, and he
had a rut In his windpipe.
Ills death was due directly to the
cut In hls windpipe, which caused em
physema, rather a rare complaint. Emphysema Is described as "a *welllng
produced by gas or air diffused In the
cellular tissues.' The tissues of the
victim's obdy became so charged wlt'i
air as lie breathed that when the
ches1 was pressed a queer cracking
noise resulted.
' There was no external mark on the
body to Indicate how the cut had been
recelved4and It Is presumed that Wat-
klnscn must have had something In
his mouth when he fell. This might
also sccount fer the fracture cf the
hard palate.

Llf* Story of Msrlaggl, Winnipeg Restaurant Man, Reads Like a Tale
of Olden Timet.
Toronto, Sept. 17.-Frank Walger,
M. I*. P., Kort Saskatchewan, Alberta,
Is on hls way homo from n fourmonths'
holiday trip In Europe. Wben seen by
a representative of the press, Mr.
Walker was carrying with him the sequel of a romance than began ln
France, wandered all over British
North America, and finally wound up
In Corsica.
"1 did the usual round of sight-seeing," said Mr. Walker, "but the best
part of my holiday wob the Iwo weeks
I spent with my old friend. Frank
Marlaggl, at hla castle In Corstco."
Thousands Knew Msrlaggl.
Everybody out west and ninny people down east know Frank Mnrlnggl.
For a long time hla restaurant nt Winnipeg waa the only place between Toronto and the Rocky Mountains where
one could get a good meal, llut few
people know that he was a soldier,
and an aristocrat with a pedigree right
hundred yenrs lontr. and ancient estates In the island that Napoleon made
"Ancestral estates," said Mr. Walker, "were abont all Msrlaggl had. He
had nothing to keen them up on, so
he came out to Canada to put the
family fortunes on their feet. He
eame to Canada because It was a British possession. Corsica belongs to
France, but the Corslcans bave been
warm toward Kngland ever since Paoll
found aid and comfort In l_ngland for
his liberating movement In the eighteenth century. So when young
Francesco Marlaggl resolved to try his
luck In the new world he looked for
a Country under Uie Union Jack.
He Was a Captain.
"Jurt to show ,-ou what those thor-
Mighti-eds will do In a country where
they aren't known," went on Mr. Walker, "Marlaggl was a captain In the
French army. He fought through the
Franco-Ku-sslnn war. and was present
at the surrender of Sedan. He was a
high roller nnd a duellist of renown,
but he forgot nil that when he came to

took good care of what Frank made.
Frank was a plunger. He mnde monev

that for him.
"Well." said Mr. Walker. "Marlaggl

the entire aspect Of lhe rubber trade
has altered for good and that, with
the crop Irom Ceylon and the Malay

li-T, the supply ol the crude material
has greatly Increased and will double
Itself in ii few years.
Questioned regarding the effect this
will have on the price of rubber commodities, such ns footwear, tires and
belting. Mr. Thornton said that il
was particularly In this rc-rard that
he bad visited London, which Is thu
great market of tho new supply from

"The general expert Kuropean opinion," hc said, "Is that the new conditions will have the effect cf improving tho quality of the finished article

qulokly to 170 1-8, the highest figure
