IKE FIRM DENIAL
OF THE MBS
'Staff Officers Say Return of
Troops From . Philippines
Has No Significance.
WASHINGTON. April S. The working
out of plans long ago made public for
the distribution in this country of re
turning Philippine troops undoubtedly
lms caused a revival of rumors that a
large part of the army Is to be assem
bled on the Mexican boundary.
Somewhat Impatiently the general staff
officers today quieted the rumors by
pointing to the various statements Issued
from the war department, tho last as
recently as April ?, showing the dates of
sailing of the six regiments which are
scheduled to end their tropical 3ervlce in
the Philippines In 1912.
Two or these rc?Iments already are at
sea on their way to San Francisco, and
one of them, the Fourteenth cavalry, will
go into the border country, taking station
at Fort Clark and Fort Mcintosh, in
Texas. The Third Infantry, also afloat.
Is bound for New York posts. The other
regiments will embark at Manila on va
rious dates until as late as Juno 13.
It le not settled where they will bo sta
tioned, but it Is expected that one and
perhaps two will be located in the south
west. These facts were announced some time
ago and can have no connection with re
cent developments In Mexico. The ru
mors todny of another concentration of
troops on the border are declared to have
no more basis than tho fact that some
army officers are scouting In Texas for
eligible camp sites for such returning
Philippine troops as may be assigned to
the department of Texas.
The general staff is quietly keeping
every branch of tho military service in
readiness for instant response to a call
for a force upon the border.
It is pointed out that this is the prin
cipal function of the general staff and is
by no means to be taken as an indica
tion of an Impending campaign against
Mexico. On the other hand, it Is as
serted posltlyoly that the president has
not wavered in tho slightest degreo from
his announced intention to keep hands
off In Mexico an long as American life
and property in that country are duly regarded.

Great Britain today. Jn Scotland and
north Wales there was a largo Increase
In tho number of miners who descended
tho shafts, while In the England and
southern Welsh coal fields, whore tha
Easter holiday Is being observed, small
gangs of men went down the pits to
clear the roadways and prepare for a

Tho full contingent of men is working
In north Wales, and as tho debris In
most of the mines was cleared vv0y

raised this morning.
In Flintshire C000 miners havo re
sumed work and in the Derbvshire pits
the men are preparing for coal getting
tomorrow. In Flfoshlro, Scotland, tho
men have decided not to return until tho
funds in the treasury of the union, which
amount to $150,000, have boon exhausted,
and as the authorities fear trouble be
tween tho strikers and the nonunlonlsts,
who have returned to work, a large force
of police has b.een drafted.
In southern Wales the prospects are
not bright as to tho enginemeen, firemen
nnd other surfaco men havo pledged
themselves not to return to work until
their demands also have been conceded.
The first coal mined will he supplied to
the railroads and mills, so that three
weeks, at least, will pass before tho
householders in the cities will be able

ten performed a "beneficent action," ac
cording to John C. F. Merrill, president
of the council of grain exchnngos, who
acted as spokesman for tho Chicago board

collected undue profits. His deal was

closed It out In April and by doing so

price of wheat 25 cents over what Patton
"Was that Patten's purpose?" asked
Mr. Sims of Tennessoo.
"I do not think Mr. Patton had any
philanthropic motlvo In mind," answered
Mr. Merrill, "but that in the fact. There
is a great deal of mlsundorstanding about
the so-called Patten corner. There was
no corner. Ho never had wheat cornered
so that ho could squeeao the market'.
He committed no act that was not entire

"You can go back to. the operations of
Joseph 3500 years ago," continued Mr.
Merrill. "The samo thing was done then
and has been done ever since Patten
did not run a corner. Nobody upholds
a corner and no reputable man upholds
gambling, but yet men gamble.
"Wo cannot read a man's mind when
ho makes a deal on the board of trade,
and because Patten had studied the
world's wheat conditions and knew what
supply there would be and based his
selling price on It was no fault of any
exchange or any other person."
Mr. Merrill appeared for tho purpose
of opposing the score or more of antl-
optlon bills ponding before congress. They
are aimed to prevent gambling in grain
and cotton futures.
The Chlcngo men declared thoy had
