Secretary Baker Has Information That !
Bandits, Inspired by Certain Inter-;

Scheming' for Coup to Discredit It
Washington, Oct. 26.?Secreary :
Eaker issued a formal statement to-' i
night saying that definite information i
had been received by the war depart- j:
ment that a bandit attack upon Amer ;:
icaa troops in 'Mexico or an American |
border town had been arranged to j
take Dlace between now and election j,
day to create sentiment against the ad-j,

that Gen. Fnnston and Gen.}

'The war department has received
definite information, confirmed fromj
other sources, that enemies of the administration's
policy towards Mexico,
in cooperation with Villa or other
bandits in Mexico, have arranged a1
spectacular attack to be made either,
upon some part of the American'
forces or upon some American com-:
munity on the Mexican border between.
now and the date of the election for;
the purpose of turning the tide of sentiment
against the policy which th?
administration has adopted for thel
protection of the border. It is signifi-1
cant in this connection that both the
state and war departments were advised
that the bandit forces operating
at the present time in Mexico are being
paid in silver coin.
Warning to Generals.
"Full particulars have been transmitted
to Gen. Funston and Gen j
Pershing. All American forces are, \
therefore, forewarned and in readiness '
for such an attack."'
Xo additional information could be i
obtained from Mr. JBaker, wlio left,'
from the city before the statement
was made public for Martinsburg, W.
Va., to deliver a campaign speech.
Secretary Lansing tonight authorized
the statement ihat Secretary Bak- j
er had no intention to intimate that j
American citizens were involved in1
tiie bandit attack plot, 1 ne secretary j
of state slM it had been called to his [
attention that an effort would be made
to construe the war department s,
statement as a polilcal .play, and as
an assault upon the administration's
political opponents. He denounced
such a construction as absolutely false,
declaring that political results were
not given a thought in connection with
the matter and that it was inconceivable
that any American would ally
himself with Mexicans to attack his

statement before it was issued and
discussed it with Secretary Baker. He
explained that both he and Mr. Baker
believed that in addition to warning
military commanders it was wise to

because it might have the effect
of causing the plot to be abandoned.
From other sources it was learned

border and also through some other
channel which has not been disclosed.
It is understood that no military rej

on the subject. The statement bears
out this, indicating- that Gen. Pershing
and Gen. Funston received their first
warning through advices sent tonight
by the war department.

also, that none of the evidence at

for the conspiracy with bandits
across the border.
The department of justice is pressing
its invertigation. As yet, it is
stated, there is not sufficient evidence
available against any individual to
warrant his arrest and prosecution.
'Attorney General Gregory indicated tonight
that such information as has
been laid before him was of vague
and inconclusive character.
While administration officials generally
declined to discuss SecretaryBaker's
warning, it was admitted that
the information received does not

Administration officials were tonight
of the opinion that the American-Mexican

which his enemies liave repeatedly
predicted, the military movements of
Villa, now making a formidable campaign

were in sight of Chihuahua City
and that Gen. Trevino, the Carranza
commander there, although plentifully
supplied with arms and receiving
reinforcements, was short of ammunition
and considering evacuating
the capital. Department officials said
tonight they had not heard the report

huah.ua actually had fallen. It was
pointed out that Villa, once occupy,

of Juarez, as he did easily once
before, and at another stroke might
take Torreon, Montery and Saltilla,
when he would be a military factor
somewhat different from the bandit

The turning of Virginia into the
column of "dry" States came after a'
vigorous campaign of four years led :
by the Anti-Saloon league. Bills pro
viding for a referendum to ascertain j
the will of the people with reference;
to State wide prohibition were intro- j
duced in the legislatures of 1910 and
1912 only to meet defeat at the hands
of one or both branches. '.An enabling
act was passed in 1914, in accordance
with which the referendum was sub-!
mitted to the people 011 September 22,
1914, and State wide prohibition won
| by about 30,000 votes.
During the campaign of 1915 the
j Anti-Saloon league worked for the
election of a new general assembly
pledged to% strict Statewide prohibition.
A large majority of the 140 del
i egates ana senators were elected on
1 such a platform and the legislature
j which met in January, 1916, follow|
