GEN. OROZCO SAID TO
Americans Reported Killed
Bandits Who Fired From
Lawlessness and murder on a scale
which appears to have lost every re
semblance to civilized warfare haB
succeeded the revolution in Mexico,
if the messages to the State Depart
ment today are a real indication of
the conditions existing in the dis
traught and blood-stainod republic.
Tho latest dispatches say that at
least two Americans have been
killed and another wounded when
murderouB bandits fired from am
bush on passenger trains filled with
Attacks on railroad trains were made
at three points and In tho case of the
lino passing through Guayamas, service
has been completely abandoned on a
considerable stretch of the road. More
bridges aro reported as being burned,
and the desperadoes, (whether associa
ted with the rebels or not, seem bent on
creating such a feeling of terror that
no person will daro to ride .on a pas
senger train through the country.
The general Impression at tho State
'Department today Is that Gen. Pascual
Orozco Is determined to cither force
the United States to recognize the bel
ligerents or to Inaugurate such a con
dition of lawlessness as to compel the
United States to intervene. '
The State Department has received
unofficial conflrmaUonaif., the .fact- that
General Orozco has decided not., to ac
cord any. official recognlUon to the
State Department's representatives in
'the state of Chihuahua.
If this Is really the program decided
on by the rebel commander-in-chief,
intervention cannot long be avoided, It
was said today.
It was said at tho State Department
today,, however, that tho statement at
tributed to the federal Oomamnder, Gen
eral Villa, that he would kill all tho
is baseless. A long message was sent
this morning to tho consular representa
tives In Chihuahua, however, to find
out exactly what the situation Is.
For the first time since the second
Mexican revolution started, unofficial
admissions were obtainable at the State
Department today that the , desperato
conditions In Mexico have brought the
United States Government face to face
with tho problem of intervention.
it is impossible to permit any con
dition to continue where Americans are
being caliy slain, it is said. For. the
flitit time, too, the full effect of the
pioclamatlon which forbade arms to
the rebels and offered them to the fed
erals is coming to make itsjlf felt.
The dispatch to the State Depart
ment today says that on the night of
April 11 a train which left Guanajuato
for Stlao was held up below Marti! by
bandit. The train was not only
wrecked, but the American conductor,
named Kane was killed, and Engineer
MoFarland, also an American, was bad
Passengers were robbed indiscrimi
nately and manv of them badly hurt.
Troups are reported to be in pursuit of
the murderers and bandits and several
arrests have been made.
Earlier In the same day another train
was wrecked at Irapuato. This wreck
was supposed to have been caused by a
broken rail, the responsibility for which
has not been fixed.
The engineer, Zachariah Farmer, an
American, was killed.
A train on the Tehauntepec railroad
waa held up for a short while near
Santa Lueretla the same night by a
small band of revolutionists. The reb

The district delegates will be chosen by the several district pri
maries. The delegates-at-large will be named by the State convention.
Should the optimistic prediction of the State leaders be verified, and

MOTIVE FOR CRIME!
Authorities Now Believe Jealousy

LYNN, Mass., April 13. TwentyJ
four hotlrs after George E. Marshy
the wealthy soap manufacturer, was1
found murdered, the police have nd
more elites to the identity of the mur
derer than when the body of Marsh
was found in the marshes of the1
Every clue has led into a stono
wall. Today the police of Lynn and
the State police who have been called
into the case admit that the Marsh
murder is the most mysterious in the
history of the State, and will rival
the crimes which already have put
to test the police of tho Common
wealth. Working in Dark.
They are working in the dark, as what!
was believed to be a most promising1
lead, tho knowledge that the soap man-i
ufacturer had been seen driving with aj
woman, was exploded when the woman,
In question accounted for all of her 'ac
tions during the day, and shewed that!
she had not be'en in Marsh's company,
after 3 o'clock on Thursday. Jt Is, cer
tain that Marsh was not slain .until
that nlght. -.
The police .are convinced, however
that Jealousy, or revenge was tho motive1
for the crime. They also know, from
things already discovered, that the per
petrator of the crlnia wps some one of!
unusual Intelligence whose ability to
cover every track was most remark
able. Because of this, they declare that
when an arrest is made the community
will probably be astounded at the promN
nenco of'the accused.
Robbery Not Motive.
After conferring with Marsh's busi
ness associates and members of the'
murdered man's family, the Chief of!
police today said that not a cent of hid
money and none of his Jowelry had been
disturbed. The first shot fired oaused
Instant death, as was demonstrated by
the mute testimony of the dead man'
eye-glasses remaining fixed on his nose,
but the slayer vindictively emptied' th
contents of a magazine pistol into tho
lifeless form. This the police accept as
conclusive evidence that revenge, possi
bly that of a Jealous man, was the mo
tive for the slaying.
A score of expert detectives began to-
day a careful Investigation of the dead
mllllonalie's private life. By thin
method, they are convinced they will
strike the most promising clue and,
possibly be able to determine Just who
had a reason for desiring to kill Marsh.
