The message was garbled in transmission and this delayed its pre- sentation to President Carranza. In some quarters it was believed that Carranza would order the re- lease of Jenkins soon after receiving the message and prevent a complete break between his government and the United States. Private advices from Mexico indicated that some of the Mexican officials were not taking the negotiations seriously and felt that it involved only an interchange of diplomatic notes. A different atti- tude was evident, at 'the state depart- ment, however, where the situation gravely considered, and should Carranza continue to hold out against the government's request pressure was expected to be brought which would force Mexico to accede to the' demands.

Mr. Hjorth proposes to dig a tun- nel 37 miles long, from the Mediter- ranean to the Dead Sea, passing un- der Jerusalem. This tunnel would carry water from the Medherrannean. to the western slopes of the lower end of the Jordan Valley. Thence the water would pass through down to the Dead Sea where a pow- er plant .would transform the water power into electricity, to be distrib- uted as light and power .through the country. This power would be used to drive a pumping station, at the southern end of the Sea of Galilee (Lake Gennesaret.) The surface of the Dead Sea is about 1.300 feet below- sea level; that of the Sea of Galilee 630 feet below sea level. Preliminary estimates, Mr. Hjorth show that tens off thousands of horsepower might be developed in this way bv means of ;i tun el carrying 20 tons of water per sec- ond. He estimates the rise of the Dead Sea caused by this at not more than a part of a. yard per year. The sufrace of the sea which is now aoout, 4.000 square milss, would be allowe dto increase to about square miles. ..Two canals would be built run- ning parallel with the river Jordan and from these canals water could be distributed among the fields slop- ing toward the Jordan sufficient, it is claimed, for the irrigation of many hundreds of thousands of acres. Mr. Hjorth claims it would be no more difficult to build, this tun-i-rt than the proposed railway tunnel horn, in Palestine, and a Zionist 1 CANDIDATE FOR [meeting has just been held to cele- brate the anniversary.
