These orders have been Issued by the
War Department with a full realization
that- such an attack by the American
troopers on the Mexicans might be
taken as a practical declaration of war
between tho two countries.
At the "War Department this morn
ins; it was said no official news had
come from Presidio. Developments are
anxiously awaited, however.
The rebels, according Tj6 latest reports,
were massed at the entrance to Mula
Pass, about eighteen miles southeast of
OJinaga. According to army experts
here, the pass could be :held by tho fed
erals for three weeks with a force of
90 men. According- to unofficial dis
patches reaching here today, however,
the federals are already! showing sign
of demoralization, and) that some of
them had fled acrosi the border. It is
unofficially reported that Major Mc
Namee has confiscated their arms and
tent them back across the line.

mented by local special police, 'who
insist on doing a trick of duty about
i the cottage in the early morning.
Heard Peculiar Noise.
Early today a cood part of 'the en
tire household In the cottage was
awakened by a peculiar noise. It sounded
i ed like wood sawing. The otnter was
apparently the big window underneath
the Presidential bed. room.
One of the Secret Service guards
started to Investigate. Before he got
there, there was a crash of breaking
crockery. Then a hus'.y special police
man with an old-fashioned 'SOft-eoal
burning .45-calIber pistol clutched In
his hand, was discerned.
He insisted that everything was all
right and investigation revealed that It
was. This guardian had simply gone
to sleep leaning against the porch and
as was his c?tom had snored. But he
lost his balance while sleeping and
toppled over, carrying down with hlra
a Jardiniere containing a big fern. Tho
noise wakened the Executive, and as
a result he arose much earlier than
usual an1 took a walk about the
grounds surrounding the cottage.
Wilson Is Improving.
Dr. Cary Grayson said today;, that
while the President's general condition
Is Improving gradually and all traces of
grippe have disappeared, he wiir need
most of the period set aside for his .vaca
tion to shake off the nervous depression
that followed the Illness.
Tho President may make a tour of tho
coast in tho revenue cutter Winona, but
he will not do so unless the weather
gets wanner, it was very cold and
damp again today, making It necessary
for the President to wear two sweaters
on his tour of the golf links.
Is Dropped by Wilson
President Wilson has dropped the
Presidential primary Idea, at least for
the present. He haa found the opposi-
tion In his own party too strong, and
he will not push It. '
Whether the President intends ever
to take It up again is not known, but
Inasmuch as he can never hope to have
a firmer etId on the Democratic ele
ment In Congress than he now has, "Il
ls regarded as doubtful whether he
makes any serious attempt to get legis
lation along this line.
The news that the Administration had
abandoned the idea of pushing the
Presidential primary was looked on as,
important in political circles here t day.)

Harrison and. Miss Malone were employes of the Car

was manager.and Miss Malone advisory manager. In reality
Miss Malone was the head of the Washington liranch.
Saturday, financial circles in Washington heard that
Miss Malone and Harrison had disappeared and that the
books of the company disclosed a shortage.
This wa3 confirmed by a member of the firm. But owing to a de
sire to get a settlement, if possible, no warrant was asked for at that.
Today Carpenter and Company, concluding that a settlement was
impossible and having been unable to get in touch .with either'Miss
Malone or Mr. Harrison, asked for the warrant.

"loan sharks" of the District

tives of David H. Tolman. the "loan shark king," and that of today of
Joseph J. Wood, manager of the Household Loan Company, announce
ment was made that the campaign a gainst violators of the new- regula
tions will be renewed.
In spite of the fact that several cases of alleged violations of the "loan
shark" law are still in the police courts undecided, the police say they
will make arrests wherever violations are brought to their attention.
