Mexico Opens Campaign
Against Yaqui Imlians

WASHINGTON, Jan. 31. A picked
force of military police has been sent
from Mexico City to Sonora in a cam
paign against the Yaqui Indians,
according to adviros reccived here
to-dajf. The Yaquis, who wcnt on the ,
wnrpvth some months ago ai'tev Gen
eral El as Calles, formerly governor
of Sdnora, had announced the failure
of I is efforts to pacify them and de- ,
clared the only solution of the prob
iem was tho extermination of the
tribe, have raided many towns and
villages in Sonora and have tcrrorized
the country generally. ?
The specinl police will kv to Mazat
lan and thence to Hermosillo and will
be stationed along the Southorn Paeific
Railroad a'ol on the border. Arma
and ammunition are said to have been
Bmuggled to the fndians across the
border and by gasolirte launches in the
Gulf of ' al f irnia.
The Mexican consul at Eagle Pass
tecently reported that many American
soldiers were deserting from border
pos ?? and se ling their arms and
ammunition for a song.
Mexican officials are disturbed by
th.i Yaqui activity in view of the
pol cal campaign now on, as the
Yaquis are strong aupporters of Gen

F. D. Roosevelt
Sees Billion a
Year Navy Cost
Assistant Secretary TelJs
Brooklyii Chambcr of
Commeroe America Miist
Be Equal to Any Power
i A Trade Protectiou Need
Inspects New Naval Club
and Gives It Oflicial De
It will cost, the American peoplc a
billion dollars a year to maintain the !
American navy in the position it must
hold in the future, Franklin D. Roose- :
velt, Assistant Secretary of the Navy,
told the Hrooklyn Chamber of Com
merce yesterday. It was possible, Mr. |
Roosevelt added, that some agreement
to restrict armamcnts might come out
the league of natibns dlscussions, but
'n any event, for the proper proteo
lion of America's commerco, the United
Statea Navy would have to be placed
at least upon an equal footing with
the navy of any power in the world.
Mr. Roosevelt remarked that ne had
been for seven years it; Washington,
but he was still a civilian, and he
iievor had received a medal or declined
one. He added that the second flghting
of the war, which is to occur in Wash?
ington, probably would show the Amcri?
ca 1 people a lot more of what the
navy did and did not do.
"If we yo on w:th a system of com
petitive building," he continued, "we
must, as a nation, consider that any
other nation is a pot.ent.ial enemy. We j
must make up our minds to spend
cheerfully far vaster sums than we
have ever spent before.
Sees $1,000,000,000 a Year for Navy !
"This ail means that we nre not ko
ing to be content to be second, third I
or fourth, but that v/e are going to
have a navy which will be the equal of
any navy afloat, I sec no reason, if we
are going in for competitive building,
why the cost; of maintaining the Amer- .
ican Navy should not reach $1,000,000,
000 a your. That sounda very alarm
ing, but it. is what is goin.tr to happen.
H must happen if we are to maintain
our orotection, assuminc thal interna-j
tional relations i;o back to what they
were before the war.
"If, through the league of nations or
by some other agreement, an under
standingfto limit armamcnts should be
arrived at, 1 feel yuite certain the
policy of the American Navj would bc
L.hat under such n standard this coun
try should have a naval force at least
the equal of that of any other nation." j
Mr. Roosevelt said that it \v:is impos
sible to get any two naval expcrts to
agree as to what would constitute the |
navy of the future. There were many ,
who believe dreadnoughts 3hould be
the principal consideration, others who
pin their faith to destroyers, some who
bank on submarines and some who are
: ' h usiastic about aircraft.
"But, when everythihg is said and
done," he continued, "the navy must
be a rounded structure. You can't say ,
that there in jnst one type wh ch makes '
a navy. Some day,. possibly, there will!
1 e developed a type of naval craft
which will operate on the water, be
neath the watrr and in the air, but
that day is not yet here. Tho basic I
principles of naval warfare remain to- '
day what they were in the days of
Inspects Navy Club
From Hrooklyn Mr. Roosevelt went !
to the new Navy Club, in East Forty- !
lirst Street, wherc he inspected the
club and gavc the venture tl officialN
indorsement of tho Navy Department.
The Assistant Secretary congratulated
the New York women who conceived
and executed the idea. 1
"There is need ail the iimo for just '
this kind of a home for the sailors !
whilc they are in New York," he said.
"When l return 10 Washington I will
see that a general order is published
ofncially approving of this club and
directing commar.dir.rj oflicera to rec- ?
ommend it to their men and advise
them when in Xew York to make i' '
their headquarters." , ;
"It is bctter," he added, "that the
club should remain n private enter
priso, free from red tape or otlicial in- l <
terference." | 1
Later Mr. Roosevelt kept a private
engagement at the tlarvard Club. He M
will return to Washington to-night.
