Beaton. They are Edward J. Patterson,
James Crelghton and Lester Johnson, a
Negro, whose registration address was

The arrests are the first made upon the

Patterson's claim to resldenoe at-2220 Mar

Last Heard of Scattered

VALPARAISO, Nov. fi
There Is llttlo hope remaining In Val
paraiso that Hear Admiral Sir Christo
pher Cradock, his flagship the Good IIopo
nnd the 000 men of her crew survived
tho first great naval engagement of the
war, when, on Sunday evening, n German
fleet sank the Monmouth and scattered
the other units of the British cruiser
Whether the Glasgow and the Otranto,
which escaped destruction, survived the
damage .suffered Is not known. The
whereabouts of tho German cruisers
Leipzig and Itromon also remains In
Contrary to' first reports, th6 Good
IIopo nnd Glasgow did not roach Coronet
or Talcahuano, nor did the Otranto find
a Chilian port. The German fleet, with
tho exception of the Leipzig nnd the
Bremen, after putting in here, left again.
If they had any word of tho Leipzig and
the Bremen they did not make It know n.
Tho tiansport Prlnz Eltel unchoied In
the bay last night.
A wireless cry from the British cruiser
Glasgow Intercepted by the German
victors was the last word received from
Bear Admiral Cradock's squadron, follow
ing the engagement off the Chilian coast
The Germans saw the Monmouth sink
and heard an explosion on board tho
Good Hopo that they believe sent the
crippled flagship to the bottom.
All that night tho German cruiser
Numberg'senrchcd tho seas for the Good
Hope unsuccessfully. They picked Up a
radiogram directed to the flagship by
tho Glasgow. There waa no reply. -
At the moment that the Gennan guns
were trnlned the Good Ilops'was seen
coming at i full speed, and through good
seamanship she managed to Join thn
other British ships. The British had
come about and the two squadrons
steamed southward in parallel lines, the
Germans being closer to tho coast. Grad
ually tho two lines came nearer to each
other and the Scharnhorst and the Gnel
senau simultaneously let go their 12 8-Inch
guns, which they concentrated on the
Good Hope. The firing continued for
several minutes without damage. The
German shots fell short, and the Good
Hope had such n roll that she could not
reply. The small cruisers were far out
Slowly the vessels drew nenier, and
when the two units were but CO00 yawls
npait the Good Hope tired her two S-lnch
guns. She was still unable to uso her
eight 6-Inch guns, which on the gun deck
were so near the water line that as the
vessel rolled they were almost awash.
A tirrlble broadside from the Scharn
horst and the Gnclsenau crippled tho Brit
ish flagship and her engines stopped.
Tho Monmouth, recognizing the distress
of her companion, made a dash to cover
the Good Hope, but by that time the
distance separating the two squadrons
had been reduced to WOO yards, and the
Germans were able to bring all their
ship into action and to use all the guns
of the nve vessels.

Gencrnl Cnrranza has been given until

It Is believed hero that Carranza will

hostilities Ih expected within 10 days.
General Gutierrez has sent a message
to General Caudldo Aguilar, commander
of the Constitutionalist troops near Vera
Cruz, In which he says:
"General Villa has resigned definitely
and withdrawn from the command of the
Division of the North. The Zapatista
delegation assures us that General
Zapata will do likewise. Therefore, all
thn conditions Imposed by Senor Car
ranza have been complied with."
General Gutierrez signed the message
as "Provisional President of the Re

PUEHLA, Mex., Nov. 6.-GeneraI Car
ranza Is uslns this city as temporary
headquarters for himself and Cabinet.
According to Isadore Fabela. Minister
of Foreign Affairs, assurance of sup
port has been received by Carranza from
20 other States, Indicating that the latter
has a numerical advantage of EO.000 sol
diers over Villa.
Generals A'illa and Zapata, the oppos

former's Include Durango, Chihuahua,
Sonera, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes and

Americans a,nd Mexicans Fight
EL PASO, Tex., Nov. 6. News of a fight
between Americans and Mexicans on
Mexican soil was received here today and
ah investigation was immediately ordered
by the United States authorities. Seven
Mexicans were killed and wounded in the
According to reports that have reached
here the Mexicans were members of a
gang of cattle thieves that crossed the
border into the Big Bend country and
stole horses belonging to American ranch
men. A posse oCrnerican oowbojrs pur
sued the thieves and overtook them a
few miles south of the border. The Mexi
cans were whipped in a night fight
The Americans recovered their horses
and brought them back safely to the
American side. It is said none of the

The impression here Is that the breach j
between tne carranza ana tne villa

party cannot now 6a bridged.
