He told, also, his belief that conditions in Mexico are rapidly improving. The securities, hidden in two large boxes since 1914. have been restored to his sons. Edward. Henry and Salvador, who, under the name of Creel Brothers, conducted a banking establishment in the City of Mexico. To the former Mexican ambassador has been returned his family home in the Mexican capital. ‘ As yet." said Senor Creel, ‘‘my estates have not been returned to me, but. as conditions in Mexico are steadily improving. I believe they soon will be." “When the first revolution came, in 1914." recalled Senor Creel, “my sons packed away* in two large boxes securities owned by client of Creel Brothers and valued at more than $1,000,000. together with \al-uabler papers of my own. The boxe^ were placed for safekeeping in a vault at the Banco Central Mexican©. in Mexico City. "The forces which captured the city found them, seized them, and took them to the capitol where the} have been lying for more than four years. In that period, the government has been making an investigation to learn if Creel Brothers had been involved in political machinations against it. Recently the official report that the establishment had been guilty of no political activities was male and the government had been guilty of no poliileal ti vt ties was made and the government directed the return of the securities and of my' residence in the capital. ‘‘As my sons now are living in the United States, the boxes were returned to their attorney, Francisco C. Terrazas, in Mexico City, who has distributed them to clients of Creel Brothers. Nothing was missing." Senor Creel, now about 60 years old. short, with gray mustache, is living here in semi-seclusion. Sinoe Tie left his native country nearly five years ago, he has not returned. but through his correspondence with friends in Mexico he has become convinced that “a better day is dawning there." This view is held also by Adolfo Carillo. formerly Mexican consul here. who has just returned from Mexico City, where he has a conference with President ( arranza. "Business is booming in the Mexican capital." declared Senor Carillo. "There is plenty of money. One sees only gold and silver. Laborers are now paid $2.50 a day. as compared with ll a day several years ago. "President Carranza told me he welcomes Americans and American capi&l, but that he does not believe anyone should have a monopoly in any business."

(Cotretpond-ence of The Associated Press, t There is a spice of adventure in the salvaging cf steamers sunk by German raiders. Round the British Isles, in the Mediterranean and off the Murman coast are rich fields for the salvage service as well as private enterprise. In the North Sea the water is too deep to make any considerable success, but in shallower water not only cargoes but ships are being saved. Some of the sunken vessels contain huge fortunes in gold or goods. One is known to have carried $5,-000,000 in gold. The diver sent down to work on her borrowed the key to the ship’s strong box. but it is not recorded whether he retrieved the gold. If the divers after an investigation decide to attempt to float the ship, barges are moored over her at low tide. Nine-in^h wire ropes are then passed under it and fastened to the barges above As the tide rises the barges rise with it, bringing the ship along, as it lies In th“ treat wire cradle. The damaged ship is then towed into shallow water and the necessary repairs; made. • In the case of vessels only partly , submerged compressed air is some-1 times pumped into her hold, driving out the water while the ship slowly floats to the surface. Occasionally it is necessary, where the hole is not too large.#to make a great patch, float it over the hole, and then fasten it sufficiently tight in position until the ship can be pumped out and floated. One vessel was torpedoed in thej Channel, but almost reached the) shore before it went down. When , it finally stink it was exposed at low tide, and not so very far from a railroad. Heavy locomotives pulled the vessel into a perpendicular position and the vessel finally refloated. While these salvage operations fill.
