! Surprising Rumors Die With Nothing
More Than Other Rumors to
El Paso. Texas, June 26.?Hurried
I preparations for the reception of
; thousands of National Guardsmen
| were under way in El Paso tonight.
'Military authorities believed that ap|
proximately 20,000 guardsmen will
arrive here before the end of the
iweek, and with the 5,000 regular
troops now stationed here, will make
El Paso the largest military concen'
trati^n camp in the United States.
/With the entire iXational Guard of
Massachusetts, New Jersey and Connecticut,
approximating 10,000 men,
under orders to entrain for El Paso,
Gen. Bell said that he was preparing
for the housing and rationing of 25,0Q0
men, so he would be ready to
care for any additional troops sent
It is planned that about 5,000 of
the IState troops will be stationed at
Fort Bliss, while camp sites were laid
within the corporate limits of the city
for the remaining 5,000. Gen. Bell
said that water mains have been laid,
sewer connections made and the
ground leveled, leaving nothing for
the guardsmen to do upon their arrival
but to set up their canvas.
Arrangements have been made for
the drilling of recruits iby non-commissioned
officers of the regtflar

lists of motor cars and motor trucks
in El Paso available for army use in
emergencies and arrangements were
made with lour local hospitals to

efforts of Congressmen Ragsdale of J
South Carolina and Huddleston of j
Alabama, the house today, while the j
militia appropriation bill was under j
discussion, agreed mat liereaUer!
there should be no obstacle standing j
against the pensions of persons kill- j
ed in the military service of the L'ni- j
ted States, no matter from what sec- j
tion they may come, or whether their;
forefathers were in the Confederate '
service or not. Heretoofre, under j
existing law, if a man went into the
federal service and was killed his
father could not receive his pension it
the father was loyal to the Confederacy.!
This today was eliminated and the
result is that hereafter no matter
what part a man took in supporting
the Confederacy, it will not bar him
from receiving the pension of his son
should the latter be killed in the federal
(Mr. Ragsdale is much gratified at
the action of the house and especially
at this time when there is little considered
in a military way but Mexico
and its results.
"In other words," iMr. Ragsdale
said, "a man was not entitled to receive
a pension from the government
if his people were in the Confederate
service; this has now been changed
and this obstacle will 110 longer j
exist. It is a big step toward wiping!
out sectional lines and making us
one united country."
A Beautiful Hanger.
Perhaps the most unique of recent
complimentary tokens to the trade is
the beautiful colored hanger being
sent out to the motorcycle list by The
B. F. Goodrich Co. of Akron, Ohio.
It is a nameless painting by the late
iMr. A. B. Frost, one of the last works
of that famous artist. In fact the
work was left unfinished by the mas- j
ter .but was later taken up and finished
by his son, Mr. John Frost.!
The picture has no title but it is,
easy to read the story. The town j
constable has evidently bailed the
dapper feminine motorcyclist for,
l speeding. But the maiden's appeal- j
ing . look of injured innocence has
gotten the old constable foul and the
wheels of justice seem in dire dan-j
ger of clogging. The painting is

Washington. June 30.?While administration
officials manisfested impatience
today over the delay of the

American demand for an explanation
of its purpose, private advices
from Mexico City indicated that a defiant

further, it was indicated, and demand
that American troops be immediately
withdrawn from Mexican soil.
The private messages were sent by
persons in a position to speak with
some authority as to Gen. Carranza's
attitude and they appeared to he
borne out by unconciliatory character i
of a memorandum published by Mexico
City, specifically denying all the
allegations of the previous American
note in answer to Carranza's demands
for withdrawal of the troops.

Intimations have reached officials
here, however, that the de facto government
may give strong assurances
in its note that border raids will be

embassy tonight that 50,000 Carranza

The state department has had no
direct information as to when the
Mexican response would be sent or
how it would oe transmitted. Secretary
Lansing called this fact to the
attention of Eliseo lArredondo, Mexican
ambassador designate, during the
day and indicated that he did not understand
the delay in view of the
statement in the American note of
last Sunday that an early answer was i
Mr. Arredondo, who had called to
announce formally the release of the
Carrizal prisoners, said he had not!

days ago that he might expect to he i

Some officials believed it possible
that the communication would come
through Mr. Arredondo and that its
actual delivery would be conditioned
on the situation at the time lie received
it. Efforts at arranging mediation,
tavored by Carranza officials, led to
the belief thut the reply would be i
withheld at the last moment if there !

Another communication was sent to
the state department today by Mr. Ar-1
redondo protesting against the shoot- j
ing of a Mexican customs inspector j
by American soldiers at Ysleta, Texas.
According to Consul Garcia at El
Paso the soldiers fired across the Rio
Grande at two customs officers "without
any provocation whatever.'" The
body of the Mexican was removed by
his companion after dark, it was said.
The cabinet had no official advices
in any way changing the situation at
louay s regular meeting i.:iter it was
stated that no change in policy was
contemplated. After the meeting i
President Wilson left to keep a
speaking engagement tonight in New
York. He will be in Washington again
early tomorrow, and should an unfavorable
reply from Gen. Carranza
come during the night he will be able
to take the situation to congress before
nightfall if he so desires.
Prepared to Act Promptly.
There is every reason to believe the
president will act promptly if the
Carranza government formally accepts
the construction placed upon its
orders to Gen. Trevino ;j. Secretary
Langing's note, which it has been
asked either to affirm or withdraw.
Mr. Lansing characterized the order
an art nf deliberate hostilitv.
How long the administration will
wait for a formal diplomatic statement
from Mexico has not been revealed.
It is probable, however, that
President "Wilson will not act before
Wednesday at the earliest unless
some development forces him to go
before congress tomorrow. The
house will adjourn tomorrow over

.It was stated officially that the j

and delay. It now is estimated that I
the entire force called out will be on j

for a campaign of any kind.
The framing of a proclamation applying
to the National Guard the
draft provisions authorized by congress
was begun at the war depai*ment.
It will be made ready for President
Wilson's signature whenever he
decides that the step is necessary.
Officials believe the machinery has
been furnished by congress under
which the whole enrolled strength of
the guard could be rushed quickly to

that ample provision has been

also to care for proper reserves.
There is no shortage of small arms or
ammunition and field artillery can be
supplied faster than men can be
trained to handle the guns.
Considering the great distances

31K. H. H. BLEASE CONFERS
WITH ADJUTANT GENERAL
Mr. ;H. H. Blease who issued a cal?
lor a meeting of those who were interested
in raising a military company
to meet at his office and who
'had a liberal response to his call
made a visit to the adjutant general
on Monday to talk over the situation.
He found that an Anderson
company had taken the place made
vacant in the first regiment by the
disbandment of a company and there
was no place in the first regiment for
a full company. And no opportunity
to go out as a unit with the first j
regiment. There is opportunity
to enlist individually with several
of the companies of the first regiment
that are short the necessary
complement of men.
Air. Blease said that he learned
that as the two regiments go to the
border there would probably be another
regiment formed and then the
iNerwberry company could go as a unit.
(At the meeting that he called for
Tuesday evening at the court house
tVioro were ahfint InA mon nroconf onr?
'Mr. Blease explained the situation to
them and some twenty men eigne#
that evening for the purpose of organizing
a Newberry company. These
men do not care to go unless they
can go as a unit and in the same
company. Mr. Blease explained that
no man can be mustered in until he
passes the required medical examination
and takes the prescribed oath.
And no officer until he passes the
physical examination and also an examination
in the modern tactics.
It would be well to have a company
organized at Newberry even if
it were not taken into the service just
at this time.
