Orozco Asserts Intention of

COLQUITT IS APPREHENSIVE
Refuses to Allow Militia to i m

of an Attack.
Dispatches reached Washington yester
day from the Mexican border declaring
that Oen. Orozco, the rebel general, now
retreating on Juarez. Intends to fire upon
the gas and electric light and power
plants In El Paso, which serve both the
Texas and the Mexican City
While no comment upon . this alleged
purpose of the rebel leader was obtain
able from either the War or State De
partments, It may be authoritatively
stated that If Gen Orozco ventures such
an act he will expose his forces to pun

here The arrival of these troops Is
thought to have gten some show of sub
stance to the report of Oen. Orozco's
Intention to fire upn American soil.
The Texan authorities are already
greatly agitated over the situation. Gov.
Colquitt this afternoon telegraphed the
division of militia affairs that he con
sidered the danger along the border so
serious that he would not permit the
Texas militia organizations to take part
In the Joint maneuvers arranged for In
Louisiana. The Governor Is quoted here
as saying that "Texas has licked Mexico
once, and she can do It again." but the
Federal authorities are Inclined to de
plore declarations in the present cir
cumstances. It Is not believed here that Gen Orozco
will tenture such a preposterous thing
as deliberately to fire upon American
territory Tet. should he do so? there is
large force of ca-valry, infantry, and
field artillery stationed In El Paso, and
sufficient to handle any situation which
might possibly develop.
The reported Intention of Orosco to
fire on American territory revives a fear
which haunted the administration dur
ing the worst part of the Mexican situ
ation The greatest dread felt in Wash
ington was that the rebel commander
would deliberately attack Americans In
the hope of bringing on American in
tervention. It was feared that at any
time he might so violate all the princi
ples of civilized warfare, such as by the
killing of a number of Americans in
Mexico, as to force the United States to
Intervene In Mexico.
Orozco Is now on the run, ha!ng been
forced am ay from his stronghold. Chi
huahua, by the federal advance and at
tack on Bachlmba, The rebel leader has
repeatedly ascribed his defeats of the
last two months to the treatment ac
corded him by the United States. Par
ticularly docs he hold President Taft
responsible fo his dwindling strength,
because of his action In cutting off the
rebel supply of ammunition by closing
thi custom houses along the Rio Grande
to -munlUons of war destined- for the
revolutionists. This feeling of resent
ment it Is again feared, may lead Orozco
to most extreme and disastrous retalia
tion. None of the officials here will commit
this government to any course of acUon
In case Orozco carries out his threat

WILSON A- FREE TRADER
Colonel Then Says Jersejita Cannot
Win on Baltimore Platform.
Tbrust at Tariff.
Oyster Bay, N. T., July S. The policy
ot the progressive) party respecting the
trusts was taken up to-night in a three-
hour conference at Sagamore Hill. In
the confab were Senator Dixon. Medlll
McCormlck. George W Perkins, George
Stoddard, of New York, and C J. Ham
lin, one of the Roosevelt leaders of Erie
As an outcome of the conference The
Washington Herald Is enabled to state
that the third patty will declare un
equivocally for government regulatlqn of
the trusts as one of the means of re
ducing the high cost of living. Roosevelt
and his conferees agreed that the uncon
trolled money combinations play a dis
tinct part In the problem of existence.
They worked over a plank that will de
clare for definite governmentol control
with the view of giving the wage earner
bis share of what the colonel calls the
"prize money" afforded by the tariff.
The argument was put up at the
conference that neither the Republican
Lnor the Democratic platform point the
way to the solution of the tann question.
The mere asseveration that the two par
ties favor reduction of the tariff. It was
argued, does not strike at the vital fun
damental of the problem confronting the
country What Is -needed and this Col
Roosevelt impressed on his leaders Is
absolute control of the concentrated In
dustries no that the power to keep up
prices may be regulated, not by the
trusts, but by the government Itself
To Cry Oat lenlnst Trusts.
On the stump In the latter part ot the
summer as CoL Roosevelt swings through
the country on his third party campaign
he will cry out against the encroach
ment of the trusts. He intends to chal
lenge the Democratic and Republican
candidates to show that their party plat
forms point to any real way out of the
Industrial crisis Into which the colonel
maintains the country has been plunged.
