MEXICO CITY, May state- ment of Finance Minister Limantour that Piesident Diaz will not give up the piesideney until peace has been restored, is not even reassuring in view of the situation to the north. The plesident. Limantour said, had demanded to know from his opponents (lie imus oil" which they expect him to announ'e his willingness to re- sign and is waiting a reply from them The president's declaration of last Sunday was made in good faith the -desire to serve the in-- terests of his country. Mr. Liman- tour said. Theie was no subterfuge in his declaration, he Diaz meant what he said namelj, that he would lay down the leins of govern- ment when he could do so without danger that anaichy or chaos might fellow his action. The importance of the decision of the American government to permit arms and ammunition to cross the boider into Mexico through the regu- lai channels of trade is full-, appie- ciated bj the government. Through- out the insurrection, the gieatest handicap to the rebels has been the difficulty of procuiing rifles and am- munition. This decision will greatlj simplify Madero's task of aiming the recruits whom he expects to flock by thousands to his standard on his pro- jected march to the capital. NO INTERVENTION. WASHINGTON, D. C., May President Taft authorized Min- ister Wilson at Mexico City to give out the following: "You are authorized to deny, through the local press and oth- erwise, as under instructions to do so, all foolish stories of in- tervention, than which nothing could be further from the inten- tions of the government of the United States, which has the sin- cerest friendship for Mexico and the Mexican people, to whom it hopes will soon return the bless- ings of peace, which is not con- cemed with Mexico's internal po- litical affairs and which demands nothing but the respect and pro- tection of Ameiican life and pro- perty in the neighboring republic. You will use the language of this instruction." Naming of Stimson For War Secretary a Move To Placate Roosevelt Men.

C, May 13. The appointment of Henry L Stim- son, of New York, to suceed Jacob M. Dickinson as secretary' of war, is gen- erally regarded here as a political mcfve. Mr. Dickinson's resignation becomes effective Monday. It caused considerable surprise Mi. Stimson expects to assume his new duties as soon as he can arrange his own affairs. In the letters exchanged between the president and Mi. Dickinson no reason other than that of piessing private affairs is given tor the secre- taiyjs retirement. The president will confer with Mi. Stimson in New York but the new secretary of war will not be sworn in until the leturn of the president to the capital Monday. Mr. Dickinson will go to his Ten- nessee home immediately upon the qualification of his successor. He ex- pects to devote his attention to busi- ness and will not return to the prac- tice of law m which he was engaged when President Taft appointed him secretary of wai in March, 1909 He is the second member of Mr. Taft's cabinet to retire to private life, Sec- retary of the Interior Ballinger hav- ing severed his connections with the president's official family only a few mouths ago. Coincident with the announcement of Mr. Dickinson's retirement came that of the appointment of C. S. Mil- hngton of Herkimer, Y., to be assistant treasurer of the United States at New York Mr. Stimson was the Roosevelt candidate for gov- ernor, while Mr. Millington was a former member of the house from the twenty-seventh New York district and is a close friend of Vice President Sheiman and other leaders of the old guard in the state, suc- ceeded Mr. Sheiman in the house when the latter ,became vice presi- dent.

Reiter, who was one of the leading figures in the investigation into the affairs of the institution, conducted several months ago. is hampered in any future efforts along this line. The resolution forbidding Attorney Reiter .to enter the saerea precincts was passed "wy the hoard of inflroiar.v directors two years ago. and at that time Superintendent Rohrbacher was instructed to enforce the order. It still stands on the books of the county institution. Although a majority of the county board of visitors have expressed them- i selves as in favor of remedying condi- tions at the infirmary, It is believed that one of thpm would- stand by th< superintendent, as was evidenced at the first investigation. For this and other reasons, it is hard to get a ma- jority of the board together to visit the infirmarj at the same time. Superintendent Rphrbacher has not 1 asked an investigation of thf coo- i duct of the institution so far. u< raembres of tre board of visitors do not believe he will do so, altlwwjch has Quoted as expressing n will- to have a probe were po otht-r developments la Utt i matter Saturday.
