THE CITICEN. TUESDAY, JANUARY 21, 1913.
Poyntclle, Jan. 18.
Since the disappearance of Terry
Caffery, nearly a 'month ago, this
place has .been under a strain of ex
citement that rarely comes to a coun
try village. Many theories have been
discussed as to his disappearance.
Finally n clairvoyant from Middle
town, N. Y appeared on the scene,
claiming she could fathom the mys
tery. Of course every one took to
her and through that she was "it,"
but all to no avail. She claimed that
foul play had been done, and that
his body had Ibeen secreted, but she
failed to find it. She also claimed
to be a fortune teller, and the way
people came from all points of the
compas to consult her was surpris
ing. There were patients from
Pleasant Mount and surrounding
villages. The sum total was that she
got a good sum of the hard earned
dollars of a large number of easy
marks and then took the train for
home. It is said that she got in the
neighborhood of about ?85. During
the search for Mr. Caffrey she had
located him in an abandoned well,
and about thirty men and boys bail
ed It out only to find a lot of rub
bish. Hotel Manager John Yeager, who
registered at the Poyntelle House

Many are commenting on the al

remember that it 'was very much like

GUERRILLA WARFARE SEEN.
Cuba and Mexico Are Known to Be
Bad Countries to Campaign In From
Recent Experiences and War of Spain
With Insurgents Only Special In
terests Wish For Intrusion.
By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington. Jan. 20. Special.
The prospect that the United States
may lmve nrmeaf forces in Cubn and
Mexico within the next six months or
a year is not pleasing. There Is noth
ing in elf her country that we want
that is, nothing we want as n people,
although there is considerable in the
way of mines and concessions that ex
ploiters of this country want. It is
also a fact that, outside of a few men
in the army, there is none that want
to see the troops sent to Mexico or
Cuba. Good soldiers realize that there
will be little good soldiering in either
Nearly nil of them are familiar with
the Mexican war history and know
there is even less possibility of any
thing but guerrilla fighting in Mexico if
our troops are scut iutoss the border.
Many of the officers of the army have
been In Cuba, and tluy know that in
tervention in that country Is likely to
lead to fighting similar to that carried
on by Spain against the insurgeuts for
so many years. Whatever the officers
tuny bo doing to increase the efficiency
of the army and to add to its effective
ness as u fighting force they are not
encouraging military expeditions into
either Mexico or Cuba.
Trying to Avoid Intervention.
It is a credit to our people that offi
cials and the public are trying to avoid
Intervention in either Mexico or Cuba.
If the coming administration in Cuba
can become Installed and get a grasp
on nflnlrs before revolutionary demon
strations are made it Is possible to
avoid intervention in the island. As
for Mexico, it is known that the best
informed officials fear that interven
tion cannot be avoided if American and
foreign Interests are to be protected.
Mado a Good Effort.
Congressman Glllett of Massachu
setts told congress what he thought
ought to bo done with the request of
Great Britain to have the canal tolls
nrbltrated. He made a good effort, but
whnt ho asked will not be granted. In
the first place, the senate docs not take
advice from the house on such sub
jects; in the second place, a largo ma
jority of the senators have pronounced
against that kind of arbitration.
Roddenbery and Trlbblo of Georgia,
who have made a record In opposing
pension legislation, had an unexpected
rc-eniorcement when Moon of Tennes
see joined them nnd helped along n fili
buster for quite a share of a pension
day. Moon was not so much opposed
to the granting of pensions as he was
sore because the house decided to con
sider pension legislation rather than
the postoffice appropriation bill, which
was under his charge. Moon consider
ed that under the liberal pension laws
the private bills might well wait until
the important appropriation bills were
passed. Moon has been one southern
man who has always stood for liberal
pensions. His people appreciate his
position. Running last year against a
Republican nnd a Democratic Insur
gent in a district where there are many
cx-soldlers, ho was re-elected by a gdod

Canteen Gone Forever.
Army officers are no doubt doing
their duty as they see It when they ad
vocate the restoration of tho canteen
where liquors can bo sold to the sol
diers on government reservations.
They prove by statistics, by surgeons
nnd by many other means that tho can
teen is best for tho soldiers, but they
mistake public sentiment If they think
that sentiment is to be changed in fa
vor of tho canteen. Tho canteen has

Philadelphia, Jan. 20. A break in tho

when the crnckllug of timbers gave

While workmen were supporting the
weakened sides of the excavntion by
timbers, another cave-In occurred. One
workman was carried down in thetsee

Tho cave-iu extends the entire width
of Clover street In the runr of tho
