. Kjuttschnitt Breaks Off AIL'
Negotiations and Eeturns
to the East.,
SHOP MEN CALL
San Francisco. Cal., Sept. 2. Julius
Xruttschnitt, vice president o the
Hrariman system, left for the east at
9 oclock this morning- over the Santa
Fe Tailroad. He had no -further con
ference with the presidents of the re
spective unions of the company's shop
employes before he left and, so far as
the railroad is concerned, the situation
is Just as it was yesterday at the close
of a three hour debate which ended
in positive refusal of Kruttschnitt to
recognize tha Federation of Shop Em
ployes of the Harriman lines.
The labor leaders made no attempt
today to reopen the subject with the
"The meeting yesterday was final,
so far as we are concerned," said J.
W. Kline, president of the Blacksmiths'
union, and spokesman for the labor
leaders daring yesterday's conference.
Mr. Kline intimated that a call prob
ably will be sent out at once for a
general conference of the executive
cosamittees of the unions included in
the federation. Apparently It Is planned
to hold that meeting in this city. A
joint meeting of the, crafts union in
this city will be held today, it is ex
pected, and the call for the general
conference will be discussed.
In rejecting the demands of the em
ployes, general manager Kruttschnitt
declared that recognition of the Feder
ation of -Shop Employes comprising
five shOD craft unions with a total i
membership et 2t men, would ham
per the company in performing its duty
te the public.
Union leaders asked for It on
grounds of economy and expedition,
and admittedly because of a feeling
that greater ce ntralization of capital
and- power1 made corporating centrali
satien -among Various "unions deslrsble.
The unions Involved had asked their
general officers for permission to
strike in -the event of the refusaL
to grant recognition ofthe federation.,
A conference lasting three hours and
zt nainmtes was terminated by Mr.
"Kruttschnitt's final answer and fol
lowing it, the union representatives,
ober faced, went into session by
thesselves, to consider the- strike vote,
which they may accept as binding or
may reject, refusing to sanction a
Strike May Not Conie Soon.
Chicago, I1L, Sept 2. Notwithstand
ing refusals by railroad officials to
deal with any general federation of
shop employes, labor leaders in Chicago
were Inclined today to believe that no
strike was imminent.
For the employes, "sentiment was
voiced by secretary Kramer of the In
ternational Brotherhood of Black
smiths and "helpers. He said:
"It can be truthfully stated JLhat ne
goti&tions are still pending. Until
peace efforts have yceased, I see no
reason forecasting Tesults."

Hot Contest For Nomination
For Vice Presidency of
Mexico City, Sept 2. When
the taking of a vote for a vice
presidential nominee was half
finished this afternoon Dr.
'Francisco Vasquez Gomez was
leading with Jose Pino Suarez
30 votes' behind.
Mexico City, Mexico, Sept 2. "With
only 15 votes separating them, Jose
Pino Suarez and Dr. Francisco Vas-
quezz Gomez renewed their contest forH
the progressive convention for the
nomination as vice president of Mexico
Alfredo R. Dominguez, who received
only 297 votes last night and would

ated from the race, it is said urged his
supporters to back Suarez.
Ferdinando Iglesias Calderon doubtless
also will be eliminated today, his vote
of 321 being added to Dominguez's 297
and split up between Vasquez Gomez
and Pino Suarez.
The unexpected showing made by
"Vasquez Gomez has increased the fear
on the part of Pinoistas that be will
get more Jthan Thalf ithis potential
vote. The Tucatan candidate supporters
worked hard up to the opening hour of
the convention to secure pledges for
their candidate. The backers of Cal
deroa, while clinging to hope, were re
luctant to .make promises, but it is
commonly believed that a fair majority
of the votes polled last night by Ro
bles JJomingnez will go to swell the
plurality of Pino Suarez.
Inasmuch as the Calderon vote has
been known as a conservative vote, the
adherents of Pino Suarez are counted'
on to give him a majority! in the final
contest since "Vasquez Gomez has ac
quired a reputation for radicalism
rather than for conservatism. On this
line of reasoning Pino Suarez's back
ers are forcasting his nomination.
The Vasquezltas appeared no less
confident of-success this jnprningJl
lleving that their candidate will be
carried in on a wave of popular senti
ment as a result of the work which he
did during the revolution.
The necessity for repeating the roll
call today made it probable a vice pres
ident "would not be nominated before
tonight or tomorrow.
Convention Breaks Up.
Although it was decided early yes
terday to continue the convention in
session until a vice presidential nom
ination was made, an adjournment was
taken last night after the first 'vote
had been taken. ,
Shouting charges of corruption and
yelling that the supporters of Jose
Pino Suarez had bought their votPS?
the supporters of Dr. Francisco V.

followed closely on the clearing of one
of the galleries by police assisted by

Attack on Juarez Is Said
to Be Planned.
ARMS HAVE BEEN
ORDERED FROM EAST
Magonista circles continue to grow.
There are now 200 of the wearers of
the red badge of the flagon belief in El
Paso. This number has been increased
by the arrival of recruits from the
west and from Mexico. The Magon
junta was reorganized at the home of
P. Silva on Park street Friday night
and it is' again active in aiding the
main junta in Los Angeles to get re
cruits, funds and arms for the revolu
tion against a revolution.
There are said" to be 200 more Ma
gonistas up the river a few miles, who
are preparing to move down to rancho
Flores as soon as field operations are
undertaken. There is a small bunch
of the reds at Flores ranch at" the
present time, holding that strategic

at Douglas, and more joining the tem
porary junta there daily from across
the river at Agua Prieta.
A machine gun has been ordered by
the Magonistas and one of the former
American artillery officers in the Ih
surecto army is said to have been se
cured to operate it in case of active
field work. The machine gun is to be
bought in New York and will be
shipped to El Paso in separate boxes
and assembled here for future use.
The rifles that were ordered for the
Magonistas have not yet arrived, but it
is expected that a force of the discon
tents will be put in the field in Chi
huahua as soon as sufficient arms have
been secured to allow them, to protect
themselves from the Maderlsta scouts
and rural police.
Magonistas Near San "Ygnacio..
A band .of Magonistas is reported to
be near San Ygnacio. a small Tillage
about 40 miles east of Ciudad Juarez.
The men are said to have crossed from
the American- side -near San Ygnacio.
The band is said to be small.

for the east and will probably go as fat

Sinaloa has seceded from the Mexi
can union, according to proclamation
of its chief executive, governor Juan
M. Banderas, who recently forced out
the Jdaderista appointee to the office
and took the governorship himselfi
Banderas commanded the victorious
insurrectos in Sinaloa during the revo
lution. His soldiers were the leading
rancheros. He was extremely popular
as a commander, and after several
changes in the governorship had oc
curred he got the position. At the time
of the capture of Culiacan Banderas
commanded 7000 men.
Sinaloa is one of the hardest sections
of Mexico to reach from the interior.
Only by seato Mazatlan and by rail
from Sonora "can troops be thrown into
the state. The defection of the gov
ernor is said to have been caused by
the failure of Madero to carry out his
promise of the confiscation of large
estates and the division of the public
lands among the people.

Chesterfield Court House, Va, Sept
2. The defence in the Beattie trial
today laid stress on two important
points prior to closing its case with
the testimony of the prisoner himself
later in the day. .
In. one it attacked the theory of the
prosecution that Buelah Binford was
the motive of the accused for murder

the testimony of . witnesses for the
commonwealth who thought they saw

friend and chum of the accused, told
on the witness stand of Beattie's re-

out that when they were, accidentally
renewed, just before Mrs. Beattie was
murdered, there was no serious affec

merely an episode of old time dissipa

The character of E. H. Neblitt, who

he claims to have transferred the
weapon to his cousin, Henry Beattie,
was attacked today when the prosecu

negotiations with Mexico to settle promptly by diplomacy, the long standing dis

The recent arbitration decision in the controversy by judge Eugene Lafleip
of Canada, leaves the matter as unsettled as ever, as the award provides no practie-v

The United States will probably pay Mexico a cash consideration to release
