Seagirt, N. J., July 5. Thirty-five
members of the democratic nationa'
committee called on governor Wilson
hero yesterday. They came up from
Baltimore on a special train and on
the -way talked of the, selection of a
seasoned manager for chairman to run
the govetnor's campaign. When they
left Seagirt, two hours- later, aftei
friendly chats with the nominee, most
of them declared that anyone whom
the governor might name would bo
elected to the place.
As to who this will be, whether Will

dozen others mentioned for the place

en route probably at Indianapolis to
take Governor Marshall, his running
mate, with him.
There was much diversity of opin
ion on the way up from Baltimore
i.mong the delegates as to whom
should be elected chairman.
Mr. Lynch, who managed the cam
paign of the late governor Johnson,
cf Minnesota, and Judge Wade, of
Iowa, were frequently mentioned. Ii
seemed to ;be the consensus oi
opinion that a man who knows the
party leaders in the field would make
an ideal leader. There was no idea
of selecting a man today.
Governor Greet McCombs.
Not long after the arrival of the del
egates, Mr. McCombs. who was report
ed to be ill in Baltimore, appeared on
the governor's lawn. - He had come
on a later train. The governor spied
Ism and left the group with whom
lie was talking to shake his campaign
r-.anagers nana and thank him. They
strolled across the lawn with hands
clasped and held a low conversation.
Before the governor could return to
his other friends, he announced that
Ollle James, who was permanent chair
man of the convention, would visit
1 1m tomorrow or Saturday to arrange
the date and details for his formal
notification of nomination.
Calling Norman B. Maqk aside, gov
ernor Wilson held a long talk with'
him, punctuated by Mr. "Mack's vig
orous gestures and his own nods of"
assent. A little later Mr. Mack, after
conferring 'with other committeemen.'
said to Roger SuULgau, of JiltHOis:
We have jost aWout decided to meet
for organisation In New York on
-Make it Chicago," said Mr. 'Sulfl
van. "No, most of us want it to be held
In New York." Mr. Mack said.
"Come out to French Lick for the
meeting." insisted Thomas Taggart,
"and let it all be my expense"
"Chicago," repeated .Mr. Sullivan."
"Better see, hadn't we. what he has
to say about it?" Mr. Taggart sug
gested, indicating governor Wilson
with a gesture.
They acted on this advice, but no
one save themselves heard the gov
ernor's smiling reply. A new canvass
of the committee was made and Mr.
Mack announced from the governor's
porch that Chicago had been selected.
Speculation a to Lender.
There was a great deal of surmise
a5 to governor Wilson's choice for
chairman. Mr. Hudspeth, who man
aged the eastern end of the campaign
in 1904 and 1908, and a close friend
of governor Wilson, was frequently
Personally I am in favor of Mr.
McCombs," Mr. Hudspeth said. "He
has managed the governor's campaign
tr'lliantly so far and I see no reason
why he should not continue to do so "j
It is a mistake. I think, to swap horses
A. Mitchell Palmer, another close
friend of the governor, who has been
sroken of as chairman, also said Mi1.
McCombs is his preference. Mr. Mc
Combs himself had little to say.
'"If the governor feels that I can do
any good in this respect," he declared,
"I will put aside personal inclinations,
however great the sacrifice."
Norman E Mack, the retiring chalr
r..an said that under no circumstances
would he entertain a thought of re
election. "Governor Wilson's choice
will prevail." he added.
"Will ot Decide Until Latt Minute.
Governor Wilson's mind is "still like
en open book," to quote him exactly
on iis choice for chairman of the
Democratic national committee. He
said today he would not decide until
the last minute.
"T iti regard to things of that sort,"
li" said. "I never announce my decision
uitil I make up my mind. When tLere
Is a question like this to decide. I listen
to an arguments and then argue it in
iry own mind. 'At present my mind Is
in the midst of the argument."
William G. McAdoo, of New York,
who has been mentioned as a possible
'dee of governor Wilson for treas
urer of the committee had a long con
f re nee with the governor during
the forenoon. At Its conclusion the gov
trnor admitted Mr. McAdoo's name had
r?t been suggested to him and that
he had no choice at present. Later
ir the day governor Wilson had a talk
wit Josephus Daniels and Robert S.
I udspeth. national committeeman from
orth Carolina and New Jersey, re

Newport, R. I, July 5. The active
competition between Vincent Astor and
his warm personal friend, Herman
Oelrichs, for the affections of Miss
Margaret Andrews, who will be for
mally presented to society on the night
of July 26, is taking an exciting turn.
Miss Andrews, who is the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Paul A. Andrews, is
passionately fond of riding at light
ning pace in automobiles. Her admira
tion of an auto increases with Us
speed. And her affection for friends
who are autoists is said to be partly
influenced by the speed capabilities of
The result, while natural, was unex
pected. It has created a rivalry be
tween Vincent Astor and Herman Oel-
nens to own cars that will outdistance
each others. In the early part of last
season Miss Andrews used Mr. Astor's
car. Jt appeared to be swifter than
Mr. Oelrichs's. But when the young
mien met in a speed contest on Easton's
Beach and Mr. Oelrichs's car won it.
It was noted shortly thereafter that
Miss Andrews began using the latter's
Miss Andrews returned a month ago

brown racing machine that eclipses

cepting a machine owned by Miss Es
ther Moreland. of Pittsburer. the new
beauty who has won the admiration of
A Woman Racer.
Miss Moreland drives like the wind,
but is no more daring that Miss An
drews. The two beauties undoubtedly
will meet one of these days for racing
honors on the Speedway. If the Oel
richs car which Miss Andrews no
doubt will use is left behind by Miss
Moreland," an appeal may be made by
Miss Andrews to Vincent Astor, who is
reported to have just purchased seven
Mr. Astor is understood to have been
devoting considerable time to the se
lection of his cars with the intention
of getting the speediest motor vehicles
that can be made. A dispatch from
Syracuse in the early part of the last
month said that he had visited an auto
factory in that city. He spent nearly
a whole day there. The result of his
visit probably will be demonstrated
shorty in. tfewiiort. It may decided his

U. S. OFFICIALS CALL
' FEDERAL CAMPAIGN AN
While the federal campaign against the rebel In northern Mexico re

they will hold probably no longer than the federals can rebuild the bridges

a military standpoint for It permmeu .uc "':" " -
armv officers are unanimous In this declaration.
The federals hae won the territory for which they contended and have
driven the rebels ahead of them in every fight since Vie rebels were turned
back after having fought their way almost to Torreon. In their announced
march upon Mexico" City, but the federals In planning their campaign, failed
to properly shut off the rebel retrentlnto Sonora nnd now the federals,
though victorious, hold only the nest, while the bird hns flown to a new Held.
The rebels, like a giant snake, nre pouring Into Juarez, o er the "Mexican
Central railroad, from the scene of their latest defeat at Bachlmba, only to
be entrained again on the Mexico Xorth Western railroad south to Casas
Grande, from which point they will make their way by marching Into Son
ora, a state garrisoned only by a few hundred federals nt the most.
Cutting the railroad behind them as they come to Juarez, the rebels are
making it impossible for the federals to follow until the road can be re
stored, and by the time the federal can do this and reach Juarez, the rebels
will have time to be well Into Sonora, where It Is said to be the plnn to Issue
more state bonds to carry on their war.
The rebels had milked dry the state of Chihuahua. Now they are going
Into a new state and, with the capture of a seaport, which will be one of
their first efforts, their ammunition smuggling undertakings will be trans
ferred from the Arizona, Xew Mexico nnd Texas borders, to the California
const. Boats will be utilized to bring the ammunition from California ports to
Guaymns or whatever port the rebels may take. The federals will have to
plan their campaign ail over again, 17. S. army men Bay.
The federals have clearly had the advantage in nil the fighting and have
driven the rebels before them like cattle, but the boasted federal movement
from Sonora failed to materialize to out off retreat and the rebels arc now
enabled to escape fronm state they haie practically mined into one that still
offers them much In the way of provisions nnd general supplies.
1XSURRECTOS COMING TO JUAREZ.
Five troop trains bore the retreating Mexican lnsnrrectos from the vi
cinity of Chihuahua city to Juarez, opposite here, today and before the day Is
over, It Is expected most of the rebels will he sent southwest from Juarez,
to Casas Grandes, from whfSh point it was Intended to effect an entrance to
the rich mining ntate of Sonora.
The first train of rebels arrived in Juarez at 1 ocioek, bearing the pay
master's car and a number of women. Gen. Orozco was not nboard.
Having abandoned Chihuahua to the federals, the rebels destroyed all
bridges between Bachlmba, where the last battle occurred, and Snnz, 30
miles north of Chihuahua, the small station at whioh the rebel outposts arc
now gathered. The evacuation of Chihuahua meant that the zone of rebel
control Is for the time greatly diminished, Juarez being the only Important
point that remains, but Orozco plans to slip over into Sonora nnd take that
OROZCO SPENDS NIGHT AT SAUZ.
Gen. Orozco, the rebel chief, spent the night at Saux, but was expected
In Juarez today to direct the movements of various.bcnds into which the rebel
army now Is disintegrating. Juarez at present Is the rebel capital, train
loads of archives hating been sent there within the last three days.
Although the Invasion of Sonora means n campaign in the mountains, the
rebels, mttst of them mountaineers, believe 'themselves equal to It. The revo
lution in that form, they say, will prove.-niorevexntious to the- government"
than an ordinary campaign. To check the rebel invasion of Sonora, the Mex
ican government Is movlnjr forces from Agua Prletn and western SonOrn, but
only a few hundred men nre- believed to be under way to Intercept the rebels.
The federals claim to have from 2500 ta '4000 troops Including Sonora state

Gen. Snnjlnes left Agua I'rleta today for Fronteras, Son., to take com
mand of the main column, nnd, while the forces of Gen. Snnjlnes are engag

Gen. Huerta js to move up from the city of Chihuahua along the Mexico
North Wectcrn railroad toward Casus Grandes and attack the rebels from the
rear, but the rebels plan to so destroy the railroad as to make this possible

Reports early today were to the effect that no federals had as yet entered
the city of Chihuahua, although a detachment of cavalry under Gen. Rabago
was said to be a few miles from the town.
FEDERALS PREPARE TO RESUME BUSINESS.
Blank books, 'record books, files and other official paper have been sent
here from Mexico City for exportation to Juarez for the use of the federal
tffflclcls as soon a" the torrn is retaken by the federals. The blanks were

Friends of Orozco's on this side of the

July 5. A brief resistance of the rebels -which preceded
their retreat, caused comparatively little loss of life but the
destruction of the railroad for 40 miles to Chihuahua is so
far-reaching as to prevent the arrival of the main federal

The rebels have all abandoned Chihuahua, however.
LOOTING A T CASAS GRANDES.

Casas Grandes, Mex., July 5. Rebels under Gen.
Salazar, commanding the vanguard of the insurrecto army,
have begun to terrorize this region. Tension among the
Americans and foreigners was increased today with the im
prisonment of C. E. Hollingsworth, manager of the general
store of Kettlesen and Degetau here, when he refused to
give the rebels supplies. They looted the store.

REBELS WILL NOT RESIST.
(By Associated Press.)
Chihuahua, Mex., July 5. With the federal vanguard
only five miles south and 500 of the rebel guards on the out
skirts, of the city ready to move north to rejoin the rebel army
when the government troops take possession here, Chihuahua
was quiet today.
Danger of disorders have been reduced to a minimum.
Gen. Orozco, who is at Sauz, 30 miles north, gave his rear
guards orders not to resist the entrance of the federals but to
ride away as soon as they were sighted.
Bridges have been burned for 40 miles both north and
south of here and it is unlikely that residents will be able
to leave the city for a week.
Communication by telegraph with Juarez and the Amer
ican border has not yet been destroyed. It is probable that
as soon as the federals reach here the rebels will sever con
nections. Twelve telegraph operators who served the rebels, v
remained here as neutrals.

were about 400 head of cattle. The
cattle at the present time are being
held up by the rebel officials in the
city who wish to collect certain taxes
on them before they can be moved. The
owners of the cattle claim that they
paid these taxes when they were first
loaded, in the Galeana district, but were
not given any receipts for the pay
ment of the money and now in Juarez
they must pay the tax again, or not
move the cattle. It is believed that
the cattle will be moved some time
These are the first cattle to be

KILLING OF ADAMS
TO BE AVENGED
Washington, D. C, July 5. Senator Smoot, of Utah, today laid before the
state department the cas of William Adams, the American citizen killed in Colonia
The department instructed the American eonsul at Juarer to make an investi
gation. Senator Smoot said that he had expected such outrages as this" to occur
with the breaking up of the rebel forces into small bands, and he anticipated
other attacks of the same character.
Senator Fall, of New Mexico, was also notified of the killing of Adams and is
interesting himself in it.
