THE SENATE TO-DAY
In scathing ultimatums, served alike
upon the Federal government represent
ed by Madero and upon the insurrectos
represented by Gen. Orozco, the United
States Government yesterday took its
flrst active step leadinelo immediate in
tervention in Mexico. Calling attention to
the enormous and constantly increasing
destruction ol American property and
the deliberate military murder of Amer
ican citizens xonrrary to the interna
tional laws governing all civilized na
tions, in a war that is seemingly with
out definite end or definite" purpose, the
State Department informs the Mexican
people that they trill Te held definitely
responsible for every such barbaric act.
"Will Enforce Demands.
In Its ultimatum to Gen. Orozco the
State Department calls specific attention
to tba fact that in spite of his formal
announcement that beumse the "United

Attitude Is Strong;.
bo strone is the attitude assumed by
th- administration in both ultimatums
that the threat of immediate interven
tion is scarcely veiled. The ultimatums
served upon Mexico by the State De
partment yesterday are but the, pre
liminary steps to a swift realization of
that exclusive prophecy.
The temper or Congress' at this time
may be gathered from the. Illuminating
fact that Senator Fall .and Representa

borders on the Rio Grande, were last
night formulating plans to force im
mediate intervention In Mexico. These
