" The difference betweeu Carrnnza an.l
' Villa ame to ao open split yesterday
. afternoon. Villa notifying hi r former
. chief that he would submit to no fur-
tber ordera, but would himself proceed
to marrh against the City of 'Mexico.
Thia open defiauee' .brought Carrnuza
to terma, with the result that while th
breach haa beea hcalc.l ab far aa open
boatilitiea are concerned and ;. Villa is
triumphant, hereafter he is to have a
free hand ia the operations in the field
and haa become in reality what he ha
been practically, the loader of the Con-
. atitutionaliats. ' , ."
, There haa been bad blood between
Carranza and bis Icadiug general for
, the past several weeka and the clath for
final authority haa been expected. ' .
. Oarranaa't Ordor Besented. ' -?
The latest and moat offensive order
of Carranza, which Villa, declared was
aimed directly at him, was the appoint
ment of General FanQlo Notera to be
commander ia chief of the newly ereat-
ed military division of Central Mexico.
' Prior to thia act f'araua. declared that
the military policy of the Conatitutiot-
. allat government was that commanding

' log general of that division. V '' ': , ; )
The effect of tliis gnlcr wm to make
' Villa subordinate to' N'atera In all the
- fighting which was to be dune from
tbea on, and would rob him . of v the
glory of taking Mexico City, if the capi
. tal ever ia taken by force of arms.
Htrlctly speaking, Villa has boen com-
: mander of the divlaioa of " the north,
which take In all the country from th
, border to Torreon and from the Houora
. to the Coabuila HI ate lines. What fight
ing remains to be doue is to be at Za
eatecaa, Ban Luis Potoi, Queretaro anil
Mexico City, all of which places were
ia tne pewiy rream.i military division
. Villa'a Army Ready to Mot.
' - It baa been the ambition' of Villa'a
life, ever aince the murder of Madera,
to take the City of Mexico. If the
capital ever ia taken it will have to be
the trained veterans of Villa'a great
army of the-north, and It was not be-
. ' lieved possible that Villa ever would
eonsent to his victorious army being
commanded ly anybody but faimsph.
This array ia now. spread but all the
. way from Torreon' south td La Colo
rado, prepared to move at a moment's
' notice. ' - '
'' Another appointment extremely dis
tasteful to Villa was that of Knrique
C. Llorent to be chief of the Oonstitu
'' tlonalisf commercial agents. . . Most 6f
' thia work in the past baa been done by
Villa' close frieud and iHirnonal rep
- resentative, Iaaadro da la Harm, who
under the new appointment would be
subordinate to Llorente, all out and but
Carrauta man.. v'' :'''
The latest discord ram in the fact
' that Carranaa refused to allow Villa to
, receive the . full cargo of ammunition
' recently lauded at Tnntpieo, although
the fuuds to pay" for it had leeu con
tributed, forcibly or otherwise, by the
Villaistaa. The Carranza agents turned
a part of the munition over to Na'era
Eeveres Order. .
Last might Carranza completely re
" versed his orders, lie bus notified the
agent of) Villa that the latter may
pro'eed south in his diauretiou and pro

ture of th City of Mexico, regardless
of the appoiutmeut of Natcra, head, of

adding that future mlriiiiiderHtandiugs

I feel sure that with this increase, I
ran insure a satisfactory service in th

"Before leaving Washington I wa
given the departmental record concern
ing the Honolulu office for examination,
aad from these records I ascertained
that your city did not have any sub

"1 desire to call your attention' to
the parcel post service of. this city
which, from the records at hand, ahowa
a healthy increase during the last eight
months. From October 1 to October 15,
the parcels dispatched from Honolulu
office numbered 2S8D; from April 1. to

June 1 to 15 inclusive, the number die
natched waa 45(10- an increase of near

the )Htomce department aud 1 trust
that the member of the Improvement

te patronize the parcel post service.
"There is no such tbiug as absolute
perfection, an.l the . p6tal service in
Honolulu will probably coutiou to
show some errors, because some of the
government departments are in touch

however with your eooeratluo' 1 hope
to brlug the service up to the, highest

I came from a section of our country
noted for its hospitality, but 1 find,
that the people of thia Paradisa of th
