IjECT Y DANIELS ORDERS
MOKE SHIPS TO MEXICO
.Fourth Division of Fleet in Far East
to Replace Ships at Vera Cruz.
Washington, November 28.?Secretary
Bryan tonight said that no official
communication had been received
here from Rear Admiral Fletcher or
John Lind relating to conditions in
the oil fields near Tampic. The fact
that no repor?. had been received since
tne cable from Admiral Fletcner relating
to conditions in the vicinity of
Tuxpam several days ago was regarded
in official circles as an assurance
^ that there was no immediate cause for
K When President Wilson left WashV
ington for New York at noon Secre
tary Bryan remained to receive offifc
cial dispatches on conditions in the
m revolution-torn territory. The only
developments concerned the activity of
the rebel forces reported to be ad
vancing t-jward Tampico from Victoria. j
F Secretary Daniels early today is-,
I sued an order directing the fourth j
division of the Atlantic fleet, now in :
the Mediterranean, to proceed to the
east coast of Mexico via Guantanamo.
The ships to make the trip are the
k Connecticut, Kansas and Ohio, or
dered to replace t;j<e Louisiana, Michi
f gan and New Hampsnlre, now in Mexican
waters. The division will leave
the Mediterranean December 1, and
should arrive off (Vera Cruz about two
weks later. Rear Admiral Badger,
commander- in-chief of the Atlantic
fleet will direct this manoeuvre.
L BODY OF MR. FINLEY
ft IS LAID TO REST |
J Many Government Officials Attend
Funeral.?>'egr? Porters Bear
F Washington, November 28.?Funeral:
services for the late William Wilsonj
Finley, president of the Southern Railway
system, were held here this morning
in St. Joseph's Episcopal church,
(attended by many government officials
and his former associates in the commercial
and transportation world.
As the body was carried into the
church just before 11 o'clock all activities
over the Southern Railway's
7,000 miles of road ceased for five minutes.
Employees everywhere laid
down their work, trains everywhere
came to a standstill and in shops
machinery ceased to turn.
Officials and employees at headquar- j
:ers of the company assembled in!
b front of the general offices on Penn- j
L sylvania avenue and marched to the
church in a drizzling rain. The body
was borne by six negro porters,
veterans in the employ of the railway
neienas t amer-m-Law.
Spartanburg, November 24.?If all
the bitter charges and recriminations
which the disbarment proceedings
L against Charles P. Sims have precipiL
tated are taken seriously, there is a
m probability of the airing of several
H nasty scandals in the courts.
"Cock fighters, gamblers, atheists,
Nonentities, pious cowards and devout
oppressers of the poor" are some of
the milder epithets applied by Leslie
L. Allen, a cotton factor, in a statement
issued to the accusers of Mr.
Sims, who is his father-in-law.
Mr. Sims himself telegraphed from
Atlanta: "In reference to the disbark
inent proceedings against me, I beg
^ to say that I am conscious of my inno\
cense; that I uave absolute faith in
the fairness and sound judgment of
T ' - *"L ~ ~ +
eacn memuer ui cue suyi cmc luuh. i
Therefore, I expect complete vindica- I
tion when said charges are investi-1
gated." * j
^ Mr. Allen in his statement made ;
L charges of the gravest nature against!
^certain of the lawyers who signed the |
petition for Mr. Sim's disbarment, and j
i concluded by saying: "Let hm with%tout
sin cast the first stone." He call- |
ed attention to the fact that a number |
of the prominent members of the bar
Ciad not sisrned the petition, or, as he ,
put it, "are not back of this persecution,"
and he asked:
"In not the attack the work of the i
personal enemies of Mr. Sms, seeking-'
to use the courts to wreak personal;
vengeance on him, and to gratify their '
k private spites, and have they not enlisted
in their aid some ifpecunious j
lawyers v'ho are anxious to secure \
his practice for themselves? Do the
the lives of the instigators of this attack
give them the right to throw
There is much curiosity and speculation
in Spartanburg as to whom forkmer
Solicitor Otts, prosecutor in the
Sims proceedings, had in mind when
intimated that mere were possioiy
(other unethical lawyers in Spartanburg
who would be brought into court
in due time.
