MORE PRECAUTION IN WEEDING
OF WEAKLINGS IN RANKS
Columbus, N. M., July 14. Be
cause of hasty physical examination
before leaving Massachusetts for the
border, militiamen stationed here
may have to submit to a more severe
medical test. Prospects .are that this
would deplete ranks. Precautions
are necessary to weed out weaklings,
who become pensioners if disabled.
Several militiamen affcc'ed by the
heat during hikes dropped in their
tracks and were brought back to
campjn automobiles. Their condi
tion is not serious. Humidity from
recent rains and temperature of 98
made weather oppressive.
Plans are being made for a long
stay by the national guardsmen.
Wooden flooring is being construct
ed in the tents and the men are build
ing miniature adobe walls around
their tents to keep out water during
heavy rains. A higher and dryer
camp is being prepared for the mi
litia. 600 more guardsmen are ex
pected Saturday.
Company K. of Adams, Mass.,
quelled another riot in the negro
dance hall. Shots had been fired
when militiamen burst in and ar
rested several men.
San Antonio, Tex. Brigadier Gen.
Tasker H. Bliss arrived here today
ready to begin his inspection tour of
army camps.
Troops Raise Cain
Cleveland. Famished by lack. of
sufficient supplies on their train, 200
New York troops en route to the bor
der to stamp out banditry stopped
off in Cleveland long enough to make
East 9th street look as though Villa
Jiad led another raid on an P merican
city. The troops were given an hour
to obtain food at stores near the
Nickel Plate depot.
Impatient because store employes
could not attend to their wants, fast
enough, soldiers helped themselves
to over $100 worth of watermelons,
ale, meats, tobacco, fruit and wine at
three commission houses and, also
cleaned out a restaurant A riot call
brought score of police to storekeep
ers' aid, hut no arrests were made.

ROTHSCHILD & CO SUED FOR
MONEY DUE ON SIGN
Suit for money due them on an
electric street sien has been filed
against Rothschild &. Co. by th3
Chase Elrc'ric Co.
Moy Shin and Mov Dock some time
ago started a Chinese restaurant on
Wabash av. property leased from
Rothschild & Co. From the Chase
Electric Co. they bought a $600 elec
tric sign, which read "Asia Cafe,
Chop Suey."
The firm went out of business.
There was still $133.52 payments due
on the sign, but the electric company
discovered that a clause in the China
men's lease said that in case the lease
was forfeited that all fixtures in the
cafe should become the property of
the lessor. So the Chase Electric
Co. now wants the department store
to pay it the money yet due on the
sign. ' r
