Lower California Nervous
PAN DIEGO. Nov. T2. — That a rising
In Lower California similar to those in
oth«r parts of Mexico is feared by the
Mexican authorities on the peninsula is
etror.gly Mijrpre-sted by the fact that the
customs officers g-uarClng: the line at
Tia Jirana today received orders that
" no firearms or ammunition of any kind
win be allowed to pass from the United
States into Lower California.
According: to the reports which
reached this city this morning from Tia
Juar.a, revolvers iind rifles by the score
have been carted into the interior of
I/>wer California during the last few
da'yp. This information, it is said, was
carried to the grovernor of Lower Cali
fornia at Ensenada. and the sweeping:
order stopping all kinds of ammunition
md firrarms is said to have originated
from the capital.
.In order to see that this latest order
Is carried out to the letter, an extra
•largre force of line rider* has been put
on. and the customs officials have been
strengthened in numbers by the ap
pointment of extra men.
According to a statement made by a
Mexican official who arrived in San
Diepro today, the feeling aprainst the
Americans which has been displayed in
the City of Mexico and other points of
central and southwestern Mexico is
beginning to show itself in Tia Juana.
"The Lower California government
has had secret service men operating in
Fan Diego and other American cities,"
• he said this morning:, "and we have
found that great quantities of revol
vers, rifles and ammunition have been
sent to Mexico daring the last few
weeks. This seems to indicate that
there are some persons in Lower Cali
fornia who are looking for trouble.
We mean to Ftop'U. and for that reason
Governor Vepa has issued orders that
no firearms or ammunition of any kind
shall be transported across the line."
Aside from Governor Vega's order.
there is already a regulation against
carrying arms from this state into
•Low^r California, but heretofore the
rule has been liberally relaxed in favor
of American hunters.
Fighting in Cuatro Ciegas
KAGLE PASS. Tex.. Nov. 22.— At 6
o'clock tonight, it was said by one of
the highest officials and one who. by
virtue of his position, is in close touch
with the revolutionary movement in
Mexico, that fighting is now going on
in Cuatro Ciegas, a large and prosper
ous city below Monclova.
This is the .home of J. Carranza,
brother of the candidate for governor
of Coahulla in opposition to the ad
ministration candidate, and is a strong
hold of the anti-Diaz people.
This same authority, whose position
prohibits his name being emoted, says
the situation in Mexico is more serious
than at any other time for several
yea^s. He declares the excitement on
!the horder is nothing: ' compared to
vhat it would be if all were known of
the situation in the interior. He says
that the officials and citizens of-Ciudad
Porfirio Diaz are expecting the worst
CITIZEN'S AM, ViniKll
They are scrutinizing the surround
ing country, not for revolutionists, but
for their friends and relatives, and
bringing them into the city, some for
protection, but more for the purpose of
.".rming and assisting in the defense of
Cludad Porfirio Diaz. Local merchants
and citizens generally are armed and
used as patrols. The town is under
. absolute military control and all com
munication with this side is prohibited
after dark.
The passenger train from tiie south,
t "which is supposed to have left Torreon
yesterday afternoon, has nut arrived # in

there at 11 o'clock this mdrning and

SEE END OF DIAZ HEGIME
Troop L, Third United States cavalry,
under command of Lieutenant Bristol,
arrived in Eagle Pass at 6 o'clock this
afternoon and is unloading.
ji A high Mexican official said today
that in his opinion the Diaz regime was
'over. In efforts to secure more help in
Ciudad Porflrio Diaz, one American, in
business there, was ordered to report
for duty and help a land patrol. When
he, explained that he was not a citizen
jr>f Mexico the request was withdrawn.
Despite all efforts made to capture revo
lutionists, only an occasional two or
three are brought in.
Another Mexican troop has just been
-ordered to Cuatro Ciegas.
-.Wett Livaudais. aNew Orleans busi
nessman, who arrived from Torreon,
confirms the report of a clash between
federal soldiers and revolutionists. The
government forces apparently were
beaten and the rebels infested Gomez
Palacie and Lerde. When he left Tor

that town, but were momentarily ex-

."The rebels at 3 o'clock Monday

the chief of police at Gomez Palacio.
The garrison was "sent against them
«nfl many were reported killed. The
soldiers were- forced to fall back, and
when I left Torreon a large force from
there had been sent to retake the town.
Torreon is practically under martial
law and everything is shut tight.'*
Americans will not be hange.l and
foreign investments will be protected.
Train service may be Interrupted, he
said. He confirmed the report that a
bridge had been turned on the Mexican
International railroad near Loma, 23
kilometers west of Torreon. \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 t
One of the American industries in
Torreon is the Guayala rubber factory,
owned by the Inter Continental rubber
* company of New York. The plant. In
cluding realty holdings, is valued at
J5.000.000. These big Industrial plants
may suffer heavily if a decisive battle
is fought there.

Americans Aid Mexicans
DOUGLAS, Ariz., Xov. 22.— Mexican
troops to the number of 800 have been
rushed into the barracks at Cananea,
Mexico, and squads are now marching
to take positions along the border be
tween Nogales and this city. Two hun
dred soldiers will arrive in Aqua Prleta
at midnight and encamp here on the
border. Patrols have been stationed
along the international line within
sight of one another and tonight these
will be trebled, with a signal system
fo^ transmitting messages. The custom
house permits issued to American
hunters to take guns across the line
have been revoked, even those given in
writing by the war department," many
of which are held by Americans of this
city.
Americans coming 1 from Xacozarl
state that the feeling of the natives
toward Americans is friendly there.
Colonel Kosterlitsky, with the main
body of his rurales, has moved, his
headquarters to Xaco, considered a
dangerous point because of the chain
of mountains which crosses the border
there, giving smugglers air-opportunity
to evade detection. Mexican citizens
at Aqua Prieta held a, meeting with" the
authorities today and pledged their
support to the government and guar
anteed to protect the custom housi. •
The Mexican authorities today en
listed American riders with horses to
servo as lino guards .in the border
patrol. They will be paid ?20. Mexican,
per day, and the high price is tempting
more Anierk-ans to offer their services.
It is expected that the street connect
ing Douglas' and Agu.-i Prieta will be
closed tomorrow and the same precau
tion taken at Xact> and Xogales, thus
shutting off all border cities from El
Paep to California.
Volunteers to Guard Border
AUSTIN. Tex., Nov. 22.— Texas na
tional guardsmen, from colonels t , to
privates. ajDe writing and wiring to
Adjutant General Newton, volunteering
to serve on the Mexican border. Gen
eral Newton has thus far declined all
such *bffcrs.
One result of the uprising in Mexico
Is to reunite the Texas national guard,
which was nearly disrupted because of
the conviction" of Sergeant Manley at
Dallas for the killing- of . a spectator
during President Taft's visit in 1909.
All resignations but one sent In as
a protest against Manley's conviction
have been withdrawn.
Guerrero Situation Grave
BROWNSVILLE. Tex.. Nov. 22.—Fif
teen troops from the fourth battalion
at Matamoras were sent yesterday to
Guerrero, a point 100 miles up the Rio
Grande, to reinforce the garrison.'
The' report is considered here by .the
Mexican authorities as indicative of a
grave situation.
The border on the Mexican side in
this vicinity is being closely guarded
by cavalry, rurales and the customs
guards. Everything is quiet here
abouts.

Miguel Ahumada, present governor of
Jalisco, step in and pluck the,' plum.
Neither Reyes nor Madero is favored,

ALAMEDA ELEVEN
DEFIES THE A. A. L.
Encinal City Football Team Will
Play Fresno and Forfeit
Championship *
The Alameda high school football
eleven, runners up for the Academic
league championship of this section of
the state, will leave this evening for
Fresno to play the high school eleven
of that city tomorrow afternoon. In
making this move the Encinal : city
kickers are. acting, directly in defiance
to the officers of the Academic athletic
league, "which has carded the Alameda
eleven to play Hitchcock for the cham
pionship" on -the : Presidio grounds. In
this city tomorrow.
Up to the last" minute, it was be
lieved that the Alameda team would
eventually bow to the ruling of the
league officials and consent to play the
game with Hitchcock. However, there
was a switch in the' plans last night
when' the officials, of the Alameda club
decided to throw down the gauntlet to
the .league officer.s and fill itsVdate'by
taklng on the P^resno eleven and pass-
Ing Hitchcock up. '
- The Alame'da lads claim, that they
had agreed tcr take on the Fresno team
before .the officials of the, Academic
league ruled they should play
Hltchcoclc in this city. The Alameda
.boys say that they, are perfectly will
ing to take on Hitchcock on any other
date that the league may name, but
they absolutely refuse to break 'the
date-the-y have already made with tho
southern eleven for tomorrow , after
noon. This has started a merry war
between the school and the league di
rectors..
In- the meantime the league has de
cided- to substitute the Lick-school to
take the place of Alameda in the con
test with Hitchcock on the Presidio
fleld y tomorrow afternoon,; although
Lick 'really does not figure with Ala
meda so far as championship form Is
concerned. • " -. - J
.Late last night the Alameda people
'announced that they will register, a
formal j protest for.-; the^ championship
against: the winner ;of the proposed
Lick-Hitchcock game. The Alamedans
apparently are sore - through and
through' and tehy even go! so, far as to
say that the league officials' are ' en
deavoring to ; force <\u25a0 them into playing
Hitchcock here tomorrow for the rea
son, that its treasury is low and' that
it needs the funds to replenish' its
coffers. ; \u25a0-..' :.

The Kind Toil Have Always Bought
COIN MUTILATORS
PAY HEAVY FINES
Imitation of Dime Used for Ad
vertising Subjects Makers
to Prosecution
Thousands of dollars are lost yearly
by big firms through, lgnorance or cane-
Wsness in observing the federal laws
governing abuse of coins.
/Just lately in Chicago a piano com
pany came to grief in this way. Had
the managers asked the proper author
ities (the Information would have been
furnished gratis) or had they looked up
the" law they would have, found In sec
tion 165/ public act NO. 350. these xrords:
"Whoever fraudulently, by any \u25a0 art.
way or means- shall^f ace. m"«late.
impair, diminish.- falsify ,or Jl&hten
• • • the gold- or silver coins which
have been or whichV may hereafter _be
coined in the mint of the United
[ • • • shall be fined not more than
j $2,000 and imprisonment >of not more
than five years." V^' t - .. v .
Much trouble and expense would na\e
been saved the firm and the govern-,
ment had the law, only been read.
FRAUD "WITH IMITATIOX
. ; It all happened In this way: Some
clever advertiser conceived the Idea ot
an "ad" of metaljust tho sixe of a dime,
with- the wording and printing placed
in such a way that at first glance it
would appear as a dime. The idea was
cleverly executed, cays the Chicago
Tribune.: A fair Imitation of the heifl
of Liberty was on one »ide ana tne
advertisement on the other. The num
ber was placed where the date on a
dime" Is and the first glance certainly
impressed one as the real coin. The
other side had a sheaf of wheatand in
the center the words "On Time."
The firm had no desire to defraud the
public." But unscrupulous people did.
Several waiters at a summer park lost
money by accepting the advertisement
for real money, chewing gum machines
were filled with them and at last the
secret service learned how matters
were and began an investigation.
There were 150,000- of the metals
confiscated. Some stray ones, however,
were in circulation and It took almost
a year, to "hunt them down."
JEWELJBRS' ARE LIABLE
Jewelers are 'guilty every day of
committing a criminal offense. Accord
ing to the ordinance quoted above, to
mutilate money is an offense in the
eyes of the law. Jewelers file one side
of a coin smooth and monogram it. The
other side Is perfectly good. Pins,
bracelets, lockets and numerous other
things are made. The owner never
means to use the article for money.
But some one gets hold of the pin or
locket. They think the money would
be more useful and so pass the coin
with the pin or ring pulled oft and the
good side up. . ;'•-,
To "change the complexion' of a com
also is an offense. That means to dip
silver in jrold. Only a few days ago a
"lot" of shirt sets were confiscated and
sent to Washington. The sets were
made of Panama halfpennies gilded.
Carelessness of the law again.
The only kind of coin that can be
worn is that so completely mutilated
that there can be no chance at all of
passing it, for example, the fillgreed
dimes that the Mexicans make.
American Association in
Queer Role
CHICAGO, Nov. 22.— Ignoring of re
quests made by the American associ
ation at previous meetings of the Na
tlonalAssociation of Professional Base
ball Clubs explains the failure of the
growing minors to have an official
league representative at the recent
gathering of the big baseball commis
sion in Chicago.
President Thomas Chivlngton of the
American association yesterday offered
a light on the disinterested attitude
of the association toward the national
body. '
Th© surprise of the annual meeting
last week was the 'failure of the
American association to even put a re
quest for the reclassification which
would raise the organization and the
eastern league into a class by them
selves, to be rated as AA. This ha*
been given out as one of the points
which J§ uld surely bring up a heated
fight during the course of the gather
ing. The threatened move did not ma
terialize, however, for the simple rea
son that- the association magnates re
garded a request as hopeless and pre
ferred to wait. ; :.; *;^
willingness to remain under the
same classification for another year at
least is explained by the fact that next
fall the national agreement under
which the minor league clubs operate
expires. It was Intimated yesterday by
the ' American association head that the
respective club owners will consider a
long time in 1911 before entering an
other compact under the present ar
rangement.," .-'>
No definite line of attack has been
mapped out as yet. but indications point

HOW LONG SHOULD
YOUR WATCH LAST?
tt All Depends on the Timepiece,
the Owner and the Care ,
It Receives
The llf* of a watch, jewelers say.
depends largely on the person carrying
It and the care taken of It." It should
be o»led once a year, some once la two
years; perhaps once in IS months would
be about th© right thins.
All jewelers say that a watch should
always be wound at the same tlma
daily. This 13 essential to make it give
the best and most uniform results. It
a watch is permitted' to run down it
may on rewinding keep different time
and require regulating. "With the watch
wound regularly and kept running there
is set up *and established In the main
spring a certain tension. If this strain
is wholly released by letting the watch
run down the spring may on rewind'.ng
take on a sbmswhat different tension,
says the N*»w York Sun. Thi3 differ
ence may be extremely slight, but it
may be' enough to affect the running of
the watch.' f
While some watches are long lived,
many are short lived, the long lived
watches being of course those of fine
quality that are also' well cared for.
A watch maker had lately brought in
to him for repair a watch 125 years oU
that had been running practically con
tinuously. It might be difficult to say
of just what duration its intervals of
rest had been, but it was supposed to
have been run practically continuously,
and though It had stopped at least once
It wa«i still In fairly good"* condition
and good for some future use.
Sometimes there are brought in to
jewelers fine old and once valuable
watches whose owners, desiring now to
buy a new watch, wish to offer the old
watch at some price in exchange; but
It Is of no value except for the weight
of the metal contained in its cases.
