Appropriations Following Dinner Given by Governor, Philadelphia's Head Disavows Politics Frem a Staff Correspondent. HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 10. Mayor Rudolph Blankenburg, following a dinner given in his honor by Governor Tener in the Executive mansion, addressed both the Senate and the House this evening, confining his remarks in each instance mainly to a plea for liberal appropriations for the development of the harbor of Philadelphia. The Mayor in characteristic felicitous manner touched lightly upon his political experiences in campaigning the State and assured the legislators that he was he e on no political mission, butin an effort to -develop not only the city og Philadelphia," but the great resources of the State. While" he devoted his oratory to ;he subject of harbor improvements the Mayor indicated that . there are other issues tiiat will command his attention and that he expects to return shortly to advocate other legislation, none of which he said corfld in any way be detrimental to the State at large while helping Philadelphia. , .Mayor Guest at Dinner The dinner a4; the Executive mansion was ijuite formal. Among others present besides the Mayor and the Governor were Director of Wharves, Docks and Ferries George W. Norris, . who came here with the Major; Lieutenant Governor Reynolds, Attorney General Bell, Secretary of the Commonwealth McAfee, Mayor Royal, of Harrisburg; Senators McNichol, Vare and Mcllhenny, of Philadelphia: Senator Beidleman.of Dauphin; Representative Shern. of Philadelphia; Flinn, of Elk- president pro tem of the Senate Gerberich; Speaker Alter, of the House, and Frank J. Tener, a brother of the Governor. While the Mayor and Director Norris were chatting with the Governor in the executive offic-Jiepresentative Shern, a stalwart of the stalwarts of Quaker City Republicans, rose in his place in the House, and, addressing the chair, said: "This has been a great year for Progressives; some have seen a new light, while others have been consistently Progressives for many years. We have in this building tonight a real old-fashioned Progressive, who came to these shores from far-off Germany, and for folty years and more haa been a consistent reformer.

Dr. ""Wilson, Lieutenant Bowers, Captain Oates and Petty Officer Evans Other Members Were in Good Health LONDON, Feb. 10. At a meeting of the Royal Geographical Socuety this evening announcement was made of the disaster, which has overtaken Captain Robert V. Scott's Antarctic expedition, resulting in the death of Captain Scott, Dr. E. A. Wilson, Lieutenant H. R Bowers, Captain L. E. G. Oates and Petty Officer E. Evans. Captain Scott's party, said Douglas W. Fresh field, vice president of the Geographical-' Society, in making, the announcement, found Captain Roald Amundsen's tent and records at the South Pole. On the return trip, about March 20, 1912, eleven miles from One Ton Depots a blizzard overwhelmed them. They had suffered greatly from hunger and exposure, and the death of Scott, Bowers and Wilson was virtually . due to that. They died soon a.fter the blizzard swept down on the party. Found Bodies and Becords - Oates died from exposure a few1 days later. The death of Evans resulted from a fall. The other members of the expedition arereported to be in good health. A searching party discovered their bodies and records some time later: A message of sympathy to the Geographical Society from' the King was read, in which His Majesty said: "I am deeply grieved to hear the very bad news you give me of the loss of Captain Scott and four of his party, just when we were hoping shortly to welcome them home on their return front , their great and arduous undertaking. I heartily sympathize with the Royal Geographical Society in the loss to science and discovery -through the death of these gallant explorers." . . " The Kinor's Message The message from the King was in reply to a notification of the tidings from the Antarctic transmitted to his Majesty by Lord Curzon of Kedieston, president of -the society. The regular program of the meeting was abandoned, and members of the society listened sadly to heartfelt tributes to the explorers. After giving what details he had received Vice President Freshfieid reviewed the plans of the expedition and said: "No party ever set out better equip- Continued on 2d .Page, 2d Col.

There Avas no resumption of hostilities, though all day a battle was expected momentarily. During the day the Federal troops were reinforced by 500 soldiers. The force of Diaz was not materially augmented. He is believed to be aAyaiting the arrival of a detachment of Zapatistas, who are reported seven miles away, "and rebels from VeraCruz before turning his heavy guns on the National Palace. One report during the afternoon was that the government was planning to shell the capital in an effort to subjugate Diaz. The movements of President Madero during the day were clothed in mystery. Early in the morning it was reported that he had lied with his' family in jUie night to Che-pultepec. J Later this report was denied; jfnd it was declared . he was still in the National Palace,- though this coulcLjiot be confirmed. ' ... . At Washington, after a meeting of President Taft with hisXabinet, it was decided to send' four warships to Mexi-can waters immediately. T wo battleships were ordered to the east coast of Mexico and two cruisers to the west coast by Secretary of the Navy Meyer. , ' It was decided at the Cabinet meeting to continue the policy of "hands off" in Mexico, though it was reported that both the army and navy were prepared to act at a moment's notice. ' Three resolutions were presented in Congress looking to the protection of American lives and property in Mexico-; From Laredo, Tex., a dispatch 'announced that 1000 :more rurales.had joined -the rebels in.ihe city of Mexico. It : also was announced in this dispatch that a through train from Mexico.had been held up three times by rebels, but none of the passengers was harmed. President Madero was reported to have telegraphed friends in Laredo that he expected to have-the situation under control in twenty-four hours. From El Paso, Tex., it was reported that both sides in Northern Mexico were resting on their arms and that they were apparently resolved , not to engage in hostilities until the outcome of the revolt in Mexico City was known. ARMIES MILE ARE HELD IN LEASH MEXICO CITY, Feb. 10. General Felix Diaz, whose bold stroke Sunday almost overthrew the Madero administration, held his army in. leasb today. Nor did the scattered government forces dare to attack him in his fortified positions in and about the arsenal. Still hoping that he., might obtain complete control without further loss of life or destruction of property, General Diaz surprised the capital by refraining from turning his heavy guns on the National Palace. x . ' The government's position has not been materially altered since , yesterday, although a few of Blanquefs soldiers not more than 500 have arrived, and a small detachment of rurales has' ridden into the city. The forces of General Diaz were not materially augmented either, but the proximity of the Zapatistas and the promised early arrival of rebels from the State of Vera Cruz, under Gaudcncio de la Llave, appear to have strengthened his hand. Although almost incomprehensible, it has been impossible for residents of the capital to ascertain the truth regarding-the movements of a general whom the government expects to come to the aid of General Huerta, the newly appointed post commander. - Officially it has been announced that both General Blanquet and General Angeles are in the city, but this is denied in quarters equally trust- 1 No one has been found who has actually seen these generals, and their failure to appear in public W taken by many as an indication that either they cannot get here or are unwilling to fight. Inanlren Kept Away The establishment of martial law has served to keep inquirers blocks from the most authoritative sources of information, and the people, keyed to the highest pitch of expectancy, swallow with greediness scoies of rumors of alarming character.
