Mr. Schoenfeld stated according to an announcement by the department, that he had called upon the Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs, who had assured him that both the President and the Government were extremely distressed over the murder of Mr. Rosenthal, and that the President had given orders for energetic action and pursuit of those responsible, with a view to drastic punishment.


Ruins of the first Hebrew settlement in Palestine after the parting of Abraham and Lot have been discovered near Nablus, Shechem of the Old Testament, by the international archaeological expedition headed by Prof. Ernest Sellin of Berlin University, says a despatch to the “Daily Express” from Jerusalem, quoted in an Associated Press cable from London.

The excavations revealed, am### other things, the walls, gates and ###ers of the city where Abraham built the altar to sacrifice Isaac, and where Jacob buried his idols, and where, according to tradition, Joseph was buried. There also were found the remains of a Canaanitish temple and Baal images.
