Carranza troops were today showing
more activity In northern Mexico and

for the Casas Grandes and Galena dia"
trlots to protect American Mormon
colonists and attempt to cut off Villa's
night In that direction.
General Bertanl, watching Villa's lino
of retreat from Palomos to the west,
predicted that the bandit chief either
would attempt to carry out his threat
against tho Mormons or go to the rich
state or tilnaloa, so far almost untoucn

Officials Not Sure That
Carranza Is Satisfied
President Wilson Is waiting today to
see whether Carranza will be satisfied
with the modified acceptance of his pro
posal for reciprocal privileges In tho
rhiruslt of outlaws across the borders
of the two countries.
Secrotary Lansing's note agreeing,
under certain conditions, to permit Car
ranza to send troops across tho border,
was sent to Carranza last night and a
copy was sent to General Kunston as a
notification that all diplomatic obstacles
to his expedition had been overcome.
Accompanying tho note was a state
ment by Secretary Lansing that the
movement into Mexico would not be
pormltted to "develop Into Interven
tion," but was designed to prevent in
tervention. Not a Direct Response.
Administration officials are not cer
tain that the noto sent to Carranzafwill
be entirely satisfactory to htm. It was
not a direct response to the proposal
ho mudo. .
Carranza's proposal was for a recipro
cal arrangement by which his troops
might pursue Villa bandits Into the
United States If the necessity arose.
Tho reciprocal arrangement the
United States agrees to Is one permit
ting Carrania troops to enter the
United States ln pursuit of bandits who
leave the American side, commit dep
redations on the Mexican side, and then
cross back Into the United States.
Carranza wanted to pursue Mexican
bandits over American soli, while the
United States agrees only to permit him
to pursue American bandits who commit
depredations on tho Mexican side.
Thnrn Is no record since the days of the
Indian depredations of any such bandit

may assume, howovor, the War Depart

THE VALUE OF TRUTH
Truth in business is just as important
as truthfulness in every-day life; truth
creates confidence, establishes good
will and builds a reliability that will be
wrecked by the storms of competition.
Through three generations people
have learned to place reliance on the
advertised words of Scott's fmulsion,
because they are untarnished, un ex
aggerated truisms.about a household
remedy of real and actual worth.
The popularity of Scott's Emulsion
is increasing as intelligence advances,
because in these days of adulterations
it continues to guarantee pure cod liver oil

50,000 Veterans of War
With Spain Available
Congressman Dyor, national comman

a request today to all State command
urs to notify him how many men aro
available for servlco in Mexico, If tho
President should call for volunteers.
Dyer thlnkB ho can raise 50,000 men.
President Wilson today urged Chair
man Padgett, of tho House Naval Af
fairs Committee, to speed up tho naval
bill as much as poselblc.
Padgett told tho President that tho
hill would be .cady to report out prob
ably by April 1. Ho sold thcro wero
sufficient members of tho commltteo
favorable to tho kind of a bill tho
President wants to Insure tho navy In
creurcs decmol ncccssnry.
Thcro will bo no shortening, however,
of tho hearings preparatory to tho In
troduction of the bill. It is Padgett's
belief, and also that of tho President,
that the freer the hearings the more'
satisfactory will be tho bill In Its final
Tomorrow Thomas IMInon nnd n num
ber of other Inventors who aro advo
cating a Government laboratory, will
appear before tho committee.
The most warlike session yet held by
the committee during Its hearings on
the national defenso program, was
staged lato yesterday with tho assist
ance of Allen I.. Benson, Socialist can
dldato for President.
Mr. Benson, who appeared ns an antl
prcparedncss witness, criticised the
President so severely that Chairman
Padgett threatened to dote tho hearing
nnd several Democratic members pound
ed the commlttcoa table in their wrath.
At one time tho hubbub In tho com
mittee room was hucIi that no ono could
be heard. The wltneMj and every mem
ber of the committee appeared to be
shouting at ono another.
The Socialist candidate charged that
tho President had made "lnnammntory
statements," on his recent speaking
tour through the West. Ho asserted
further that he doubted the sincerity of
tho President's utterances for national
defense, nnd It was this accusation that
aroused tho committee. If the Presi
dent wero sincere, argued Benson, the
Administration would be rushing work
on tho naval vessels heretofore au
thorized. you wero asked to como here and
discuss the subject or prcparedneHS, nt
to Impugn tho motives of tho Presi
dent," hotly Interrupted Chairman Pad
gelt. "Tills hearing will stop at once.
If ou mnke further remarks of that
Others Join, Protest.
Other members of the committee Join
ed In the protest, and Chairman Padgett
knld ho purposed to haw tho Benson
charges st-lckcn out of the record. Mr
Tnlbot. of Maryland, shouted that "you
can snv such things outside, but vou
cannot conic In here and snv them."
When Mr. Ilcnslev of Missouri nslc
cd tho witness to withdraw the charco
about tho "Inslncerltv" of the Presi
dent. Benson retorted:
"I will mako It stronger than that: 1
nlll mako It as strong as you want
Chairman Padgett said no witness
"can Imptifn n deliberate falsehood to
tho President of tho United States." .
Benson then marta n statement which
somowhat mollified tho'commlttee. He.
said the substance of his position was
that "In tho Cleveland speech of tho
President he held out a degreo of alarm
which his failure to build tho battle
ships authorized shows ho did not share
Benson quoted from several speeches
made by President Wilson, but referred
particularly to his Cleveland address
urging lmmedlato preparedness,
"Yet when Mr. Wilson mado that
statement he knew that on March .
1915, Congress authorized tho construc
tion of two dread naughts,' Benson said.
"How far has tho construction of these
ships proceeded? Has anything been
dono about them; has the keel been
laid? When will the llrst work begin?
"Has Mr. Wilson tried to get any of
this work under way? Not at 'all. In
a recent Congress debato It was devel
oped that thero aro sixty-eight naval
vessels uncompleted. Why does tho Ad
ministration employ ono shift of men
on theso ships when It codld employ
thrco shifts working eight hours each?
"If ths rinmrrr ! mn ternvm nnH nlir
President Is so alert, I should think
the President would get In communica

"That Is thcreason I would question

It was at this point that Chairman
Padget threatened to stop tho hearings
unless air. Benson desisted In his at
tack upon tho President.
Is Ready for War
President Vail of Bell Corporatior
' Says Scheme Is Greatest
NEW YORK, March .-The Govern
ment of tho United States, In event of
war, possesses the most comprehensive
system of communication In the world
ag tho result of recent co-operative
work between tho Army and Navy de
partments and the American Telephone
and Telegraph Company, according to
the annual report of Theodore N. Vail,
president of tho company.
The report. In addition, characterizes
the financial position of the company
nnd associated companies as the most
satisfactory In history.
For more than a year, Vail points
out. Confidential work has been under
way between tho company's experts
and representatives of the army and
navy This has Involved studies and
special investigations, he says, which
make It clear that the comprehensive
network nf the Bell system, by a simple
plan or co-opcratlon. will supply to the
scnemc of national defense a working
system of communication uncqualcd by
nny other nation.
"Here, here, gents!" admonished tho
landlord nf the Petunia tn vein, nddrcrs-
