' Mexico City, March 10 Preparations -were completed, today for the holding tomorrow throughout Mexico or Presidential . and Congressional elections, the first to be held sinco July, 1914. There is little doubt that General Venustiano Carranza will be elected president almost unanimously, as the other candidates for the presidential office are not taken seriously. The results of the- elections of members of the house of deputies, however, may not be known for Borne time because of the great number of candidates. Some of the candidates for the house are members of regularly organized political , parties which bear different names In most of the states, but there are many independent candidates. The largest parties are the Pardido, Constitutionalista and Liberal. There are 640 candidates for the places of twelve deputies and twelve alternates from the Federal District alone. Among them is Miss Hermila Galindo, who has made a strong campaign in the Fifth District. Ballots have been distributed and the registration of voters has been completed. All the saloons were closed today and will remain closed tomorrow. There is little probability of any disturbances at the polls, and strict orders have been issued against the use of troops in interfering with the voting. The list of candidates for seats in the Senate is not as large as that of the candidates for the House, but in many States there are half a dozen aspirants for two seats.

TARNOWSKI SEEKING NEW EMBASSY QUARTERS Washington, March 10--The fact that C'Ount Tarnowski, the newly appointed Ambassador from Austria-Hungary, is arranging to secure a new embassy building is taken to indicate that his government does not expect diplomatic relations to be severed in the near future. The old embassy building fronts on 1 lie British embassy, and the office at the rear faces the residence of Secretary Lansing. Count Tarnowski lias not yet presented his credentials to the President. AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN REPORT Berlin, March 10 (by wireless to Sayvllle, L. I.)

Fa-1rols of Honved Infantry Regiment No. 32 brought in 15 prisoners from an Italian position west of Constanje-vizza." War Now Inevitable r Says Senator Calder United States Senator William M. Calder believes that war between this i country and Germany Is now inevitable. The new Senntor made this statement last night upon his return from Washington and reiterated it later in tho evening during tho course of a speech at the dinner of the Stationers' Board of Trade in the Hotel Biltmore, Manhattan. Mr. Calder has been in the National Capital during the past week, attending tho inauguration and assuming his n$w duties as representative of New York in tho upper house. Mrs. Calder and his daughter, Miss Elsie, who have been with him during the week, also returned last evening. "I am under tho impression," Senator Calder said upon his arrival, "that it is ouly a matter of time a very short, time before we will become Involved in war with' Germany, This seems to bo the general impression at Washington and, regrettable hs such a result of the present situation will be, it seems almost inevitable." Mr. Calder, in the session of tho new Senate last week, voted for President Wilson's resolution creating ;( cloture rule to limit debate in the l'pper House. Ho discussed this at the stationers dinner, pointing out iUfi amended 1'Ule, while it would BELGIAN RELIEF STEAMER IS S Storstad Flew Flag of Amer lean Commission When Torpedoed. HAD CARGO OF MAIZE American in Crew Among Res-cued-Some of the Sailors Missing. London. March 10, 4:33 p.m. Official information .was received here today to the effect "that the Norwegian steamer Storstad, a Belgian relief ship, which had one American citizen on board, has been sunk by a sub marine. Twenty-seven members of the crew. Including the American, have been landed. One member of the crew died of exposure and others are miss ing. It is stated officially that the fatorstad was flying the flag of the American Commission for Relief in Belgium and bore the markings designated for the relief ships. The London office of the commission states that the Storstad carried 10,000 tons of maize, which was needed badly in Belgium, where the shortage as a result of the detention of grain cargoes will soon be felt severely. The Storstad was ordered to leave Las Palmas, Canary Islands, on February 26. She took on coal at Gibraltar and her master was instructed to proceed to Rotterdam by the northerly route. On entering the submarine zone the Storstad Is reported to have been ordered to put into Las Palmas; Canary Islands, as she was without a German safe conduct, but evidently her commander determined to risk continuation of the voyage by the northerly route. Xo previous report has been received in this country of the sinking of the Storstad. The steamer, 6,028 tons gross, sailed from Buenos Aires on January 13. The Storstad was built in 1911 at Newcastle. She figured extensively in the news of three years ago after having, on May 29, 1914, been in collision in the St. Lawrence with the Canadian Pacific liner Empress of Ireland, which sank with the loss of more than 1,000 lives. A commission headed by Lord Mersey, after extensive hearings, held the Storstad to blame for the disaster. BRITISH STEAMER PINNA SUNK FEBRUARY 11-THREE AMERICANS IN HER CREW The British tank steamer Pinna of 6,288 tons, with cargo of oil from gulf ports, by way of Newport News, was sunk by a German submarine February 11 about 20 miles off the Irish coast, members of her crew reported on their arrival in New York yesterday on the White Star liner Adriatic from Liverpool. Three of the crew were Americans, of whom Archie Gibs and Tom Wilson, both of Newport News, were among the arrivals yesterday. According to Gibs the ship was torpedoed at night and without warning, Ho said many of the crew were in their bunks and the first they knew of the attack was the explosion that threw them out on the floor of the forecastle. They had to fight their way to the deck through a flood of oil. All hands managed to get safely away in boats before the ship went down. The sinking of the Belgian relief steamer Storstad, 6,208 tons, and of the British tanker Pinna, 6.288 tons the last named on February 11, but not previously reported brings the total tonnage sunk from February 1 to date up to 577,976, according to revised figures. Three of the ships reported sunk yesterday by Berlin had previously been reported. The total of their tonnage was 10,445. POLITICAL RIOTS IN PERU One Deputy and One Candidate Killed -Several Persons Buenos Aires. March 10 According ing1 to information received here, the disorders in several 'interior towns of Peru, were due to political factions. One of the candidates, Deputy Rafael Orau, was killed at Cotabambas, while another candidate, Augusto Ugarte, met his death at Chumbivilcas in a collision between . two groups of demonstrators. Several others were wounded at ti'io same time. The1 Government -has placed a censorship on the telegraph. ' " prevent in future any small group, such' as the' "wilful twelve," from blocking important legislation, would still preserve the old-time power of a reasonably large minority. , "The old rule of unlimited debate," said Senator Calder, "has many limes worked out for the good of the country. Last year and tho year before it sayed the country millions of dollars, for a good sized minority used it to block some largo appropriation bills. A sufficiently numerous minority one-third jr more may still exercise that power under this rule. But it will and that is probably for tho best interests of the country prevent a handful of physically strong men from talking to death and absolutely blocking a measure really in tho Interests of the whole nation, as was done during tho closing hours of the last session in the matter of tho President's request for support to protect our merchant marine." Senator Calder will return to Washington Tuesday night fcr the wind up of the session called last week to pass the cloture rule and take action on a number of President Wilson's nominations. The Senator expects that this session will adjourn about Thursday and will not assemblo again until the extra session convenes in the middle of April. "That Is likely to be a long session," Mr. Calder said. "Predictions havo been mado at Washington that It will last until the miminvr of 1018, or fur aixteen months." 1 AMERICAN ABOARD CREAM FOR CATARRH OPENS UP NOSTRILS Tells How To Get Quick Relief from Head-Colds.

SPAN 100 FEET TO DEATH Man Whose Body Lands at Foot of Williamsburg Bridge Is Unidentified, CRUSHED BEYOXD RECOGNITION Suicide Takes Place Before Eyes of Naval Militiamen, and Policeman. An unidentified man leaped from the Williamsburg Bridge at 6 o'clock last night to the foot of the cable anchorage at Wythe avenue and Dunham place, killing himself instantly. Ho was found on the pavement, his body crushed almost beyond recognition, by George Hendricks, a naval militiaman on guard at the anchorage. The suicide, it was later learned, had walked along the promenade probably from the Manhattan side, and had loitered about the shelter house above the anchorage for a few moments. He went into the shelter house and remained a few moments. Suddenly ho emerged and, darting suddenly around the stone structure,' ieaped on' the iron rail and plunged headfirst to the street, more than 100 feet below. Turning one somersault after another in. his fall, the man was seen hurtling through the air by Militiaman Hendricks. The latter was scarcely 50 feet away when the body struck the street on its side. Policeman Lloyd of the Bedford avenue station also Eaw the fall. In the hat worn by the suicide was the name "Stotenburg," and in the pocket of his coat were the initials, "J. D." In his pockets were also a few cents. He appeared to be a Pole or Lithuanian, probably a former sugar-house worker, whose misfortunes had proved too much for him. When Coroner Wagner arrived he ordered tho body removed to the Bedford. avenue station house. Dr. Fasch-man'of the Williamsburg Hospital pronounced the man dead and said he could not take away the body. The patrol wagon In the Bedford avenue station was out of order and could not be used; the patrols in the other stations were either in use or out of commission, and the wagon of the Gates avenue station, several miles away, had to be pressed into service. In the meantime the body, crushed and mangled as it was. lay on the sidewalk beneath the Williamsburg Bridge for a full hour. The dead man wore a cheap black sack suit, a gray striped shirt, gray socks and Waterproofed tail shoes. SCORED TEXAS' GOVERNOR Bank President in Letter Called Him "A Cowardly Cur." Austin, Texas March 10 A letter written by H. C. Poe, former president of the Temple State Bank to Governor James B. Ferguson, January 4, 1917, referring to tho Governor as a "cowardly cur" was read at today's session of the House Committee investigating charges aagainst the Governor. Poe, in the letter, accused Governor Ferguson of visiting tho Temple Bank while Poe was absent in New York and putting in two notes for $25,000 each, because the cashier did not "have the nerve to object." This, ho said, was a "rotten cowardly trick." Poe.'s letter said that the Governor had undertaken to "knock" him to two reservo banks and added: "You may have a few days to furnish an apology for your dirty, cowardly act. I am going to send to those banks statements of your affairs as related to this bank, so that they may know who is right or wrong."

A sentence of seven years was imposed upon Alfred Mason, while his wife was given five years penal servitude. Judge Low in summing up the case said that If the poison that figured in the case had been required for dogs, as had been claimed, it was unlikely that such particular poisons as the ones named would have been selected in such large quantity and with such secrecy and mystery. There was very slight evidence against Harriet Wheeldon, who appeared to know nothing of poisons, he said. Jury Out Only 20 Minutes. The Jury was out for consideration of its verdict for only twenty minutes. " Harriet Wheeldon was discharged from custody. Attorney Riza for the prisoners asserted in his argument that tho case was one of persecution instead of prosecution and contended that the accused were free citizens aim en. titled to use any language they liked. fc.ven if the accused were guilty of plotting against the lives of the ministers, he said, the obvious mnr. would have been to have the "silly people- interned.
