GAIN IN FAVOR
Opportunity for Recogni?
tion Lost by Obre con's
Defeat in North.
WANTS HANDS TREE
Officials Think President Needs
Whole Attention for Euro?
UM Trtfui-i? 1
n. July 1- Consular re?
ports to-dav from San Lais Totosi state
that Villa forces have defeated General
Obregon's army at I.eon.'Silao and Ira
puato, c?',i-t?.g him to retreat toward
Celaya. Obregon has destroyed the
lailroad in hs retreat, which has halt?
ed the Vill s'a troops.
Celaya was the scene of Obrgeon's
great victory last Apr.l, after which he
pushed Villa's army north along the
line over which he has just retreated.
The repoit further states that Obregon
is in danger of being cut off from Vera
Cruz, whnh would seriously threaten
the Carrnnzistas in Mexico City.
Officials here believe Obregon's fail?
ure has losl Carranza an excellent op?
portunity for recognition from this
government. It is well known ?hat the
United States is ready to recognize
any acceptable faction in actual con
? the vital points in the country.
Carranza is at present in control of
every important seaport except Guay
ir.ns, which he has blockaded. In ad
tion to this, he rontro's most of the
populous district? in Mexico. Until re?
cently he has had the advantage at al?
most every point.
Presaara for Kecognition.
It has been commonly rumored that
great pressure was b. ing bro'ight to
bear hy Carranza representatives here
to secure recognition and that thev
had been received with favor. It has
been stated on good authority that if
Carranza could occupy Mexico City and
at the same time hold the advantage
he had gained over Villa his final tii
umph and recognition were virtually
But now. after retaking the Mexican
capital, Obregon ha? given Villa an?
other opportunity ic>r serious trouble.
Many officials believe President Wil?
son would be glad to settle the Mexi?
can question so that he might devote
?.ire attention to the Huronean
situation. The recognition of a fac?
tion actually holding a military pre
dominance would he the ?luickest and
most satisfactory solution.

alleges he overstated in his report to

Stimson Committee Pro?
poses Changes in Finan?
SINKING FUNDS ARE
In Case Legislatures Make No
Contribution Controller to
Set Aside Funds.
[ri-fun a Staff r??rr?>?-mn'*l?Tit of TV Tnt?in? 1
Albany, July 12. A series of im?
portant amendments to the constitu?
tion, vitally affecting the state's finan?
cial system, were introdured at to?
night's session of the convention by
Henry L. Stimson, chairman of the
Committee on State Finance. The
measures amend Sections 2, 4, 6 and
11 of Article 7.
The provision in Section 2 limiting
tho amount the State Controller may
borrow for immediate necessities in an?
ticipation of revenues is stricken out.
The proposal gives the Controller
power to meet, with moneys from cur?
rent revenues, casual deficits and con?
tract debts for purposes for which ap?
propriations have been made on notes
or revenue bonds payable within a year,
together with the accrued interest.
Section 4 as amended provides tnat
so-called serial bonds shall be substi?
tuted for the long term bonds now is
. tie?! by the state, and that, the prin?
cipal of the debt shall be discharged
within fifty years, on annual instal?
ments beginning a year after the issu?
ance of the bonds.
The amendment also prohibits the
Legislature from enacting any law
which would contract n debt until the
chief engineer having the proposed im?
provement in charge shall have first
ed the orobabie lift of the im?
provement. Tneso bonds must be re?
deemed not later than a year after the
usefulness of the improvement ends.
This termination of long term bonds
has been one of the principal reforms
authorities on finance have urged on
the convention. j
The amendments proposed to Section
5 relate to the management of the
sinking fund. This section provides
that the funds shall b? separately kept
and invested and the securities ap?
praised each year. The Controller is
to certify to the Legislature the
amount of annual contributions, which,
with the accumulations, will produce.
at ,'i per cent, at maturity the amount
of the principal for which the fund
was created and the interest.
The amendments also provide that
whenever the funds equal the deb'.- for
which they were created thr bonds may
be retired by purcha.-e before maturity.
The proposais also strike out the
rmendments made In 1906, which pro?
vide for sinking fund contributions in?
stead of direct tax. The amended Sec?
tion 11 provides that the Legislature
.shall appropriate sufficient mon<
meet the requirements of the sinking
fund, failing which, as in recent years,
the Controller is directed to set apart
the accessary funds out of the general
revenues. On his failure to do this
any bondholder may sue out a writ of
man'iamus compelling his compliance.
After being nearly three hours in
session the convent on adjourned with?

Sister-in-Law Calls Dr.

zle for Prominent Men.
After listening to te-.timony for
three hours yesterday a .Sheriff's jury,
including Felix Warburg, Henry Selig
mnn, William M. Merrill and Joseph J. I
O'Donohue, 3d, after a deliberation of
an hour was unable to agree in the pro?
ceeding over the incompetence of Mrs.
Mabel ?'lare Oglesby. Much bitterness
was displayed during flTe hearing by
relatives of Mr?. Oglesby toward Dr.
James Van Pelt Oglesby. her husband,
who had her committed to the State In- j
sane Asylum on Ward's Island and to
whom his wife's family object as aj
committee of her property. They al?
lege that Mrs. Oglesby's condition is
du? to her addiction to morphine taken
on the advice of her husband, who, it
was charged, also supplied some of the
drug to her. Dr. Oglesby was the peti- I
tioner in the proceeding.
While the physician was on the stand
trying to prove that a brother of his
wife had died insane a sister of Mrs.
Oglesby shouted at the witness: "You,
villanous devil!" This outburst was;
followed in a minute by the threaten?
ing attitude of one of the mule ad- ;
?erent- of the Oglesby family, who
stepped ip t?> William A. White, attor- \
ncy for I Jr. Ogleabv, and, shaking his ?
forefinger in the lawyer's face, told
him he had better not go into the mat- !
ter of the alleged family taint.
Rrother Against Brother.
The proceeding, which was held be?
fore l?aniel P. Hays, former Congress?
man Henry M. Goldfogle and David
Welch, commissioners appointed by the
Supreme Court, revealed n peculiar
family situation. Dr. Oglesby and his
brother, Representative Wilson R.
... of Westchecter County, are
married to two sisters whose name be?
fore marriage was also Oelesby, al?
though there was no relationship. Rep
i?y was a witne
terday, testifying for his wife's family
and against his brother. He is one of
the eXCCUtori of the will of Zenas W.

Quitman, Ca., father of the alleged in*
woman, who left a fortune

committee for Mrs. Oglesby. Dr. Ogles
Mi.. Zenas W. Ogleaby, 'he gray
haired mother of the alleged incompe?
tent, was impressive as she told of her
daughter u*ing morphine, which she
sai .lhad been given her by Dr. Oglesby.
Mrs. Ogleaby Mid that since June,
1913, she had seen her daughter under
the influence of morphine, and that
sever il hypodermics were given to her
by Dr. Oglesby. The mother slid she
? ?! and begged with her son-in?
law that her daughter should no' be
longer permitted to use the drug. "You
do not seem to realize what you are
." Mrs. Ogleaby said she told the
III- reply *.,j. .-he testified:
"I could have only one motive, an I
that would be to get poaeeaion of her
Denies Family Taint.
"Has there been any prior taint of
insanity in your family?" asked Mr.
White. "Never," replied Mrs. Oglesby.
II. :'' it was tha' White saw a linger
ace. However, he re
eian said he had taken Zenas W.
by, jr., a brother of his w?fe, from
Quitman to the Rivercrest Sanatorium,
on Long (aland, and added that after
hi brother-in-law was taken from the
?".on, he died insane.
The Ogleaby family, led by the elder
Mrs. Oglesby and Representative
? . by, challenged this statement, the
latter uifisting that the cause of dea'h

'It ?a not true, you villanous devil!"
