"William Guthrie, of New

SEES DEFEAT OF
Saratoga, X. Y., Sept. 25. An attack
on Theodore Roosevelt- and the policies
of the Progressive" party In nation and
slate marked the-address of William D.

"that the -Progressive campaign is
doomed to defeat- and that only a

In telling why the Republican na
tional convention fulfilled its duty in
refusing to nominate Col. Roosevelt,
Mr Guthrie said:
"In the first place, the nomination
of an ex-president of the United States
for a third term would have been in
violation of an unwritten rule estab
lished by Washington, Jefferson. Madi
son and Monroe, and followed ever
since. The common sense of thought

them that nothing could be more dan
gerous than to permit any person, how
ever popular or eloquent, to wjelji the

than two terms-"

CoL Roosevelt, he declared, had fo
mented more than any man living the
discontent 'and class hatred existing
among the people; he was known to be
a. socialist at heart, although protesting
that he alone -could save the country
from socialism: all appreciated his
ability, his great personal magnetism.
as -well as his insatiable ambition, his
impatience with any rule or law that
curbed or checked his own will; his de
termination to rule or ruin the party.
And all were beginning to perceive that
his enthusiasm was rather for the arena
and for power than for principles.
Mr. Guthrie defined the great issues
of the national campaign as follows:
First the constitutional right and
power of congress o protect American
Industries and to preserve our present
Industrial system; second, the threat
ened overthrow of the representative
system of government in state and
nation by the Introduction of the
initiative, referendum and recall, and,
third, the assault upon the adminis

that" his recent claims of strength -were

New York, N. Y., Sept. 23. Rumors
which have been current recently in the
Spanish-American colony here of plans
for "a series of new revolutionary move
ments under the guidance of Castro, in
Venezuela, Zelaya, in .Kicaragua. and
Diaz in Mexico, are denied by the three
ex-presidents in cabled statements pub
lished by the Tnoune toaay.
Some of the junta leaders here declared
recently that Castro, Zelaya and Diaz,
all of. whom are at present broad, were
acting in concert and had held secret
conferences, in furtherance of their plans
to foment 'practically simultaneous in
surrections, in all of which anti-American
sentiment was to play a large part.
Castro's statement sent from the Ca
nary Islands, bristles with belligerence
and he declares that he purposes to get
even with his enemies soon, but the
two- other ex-presidents deny emphatic
ally that they are planning any revo
lutionary movement. Castro admits
that he ha& no connection with Diaz and
Zelaya. "TTe have no affinity of in

Diaz Wants to See Peace.
Gen. "Diaz is quoted as follows:
"I am not personally acquainted with
Zelaya or Castro and my ony hope is to

TERRAZAS DENIES JTHAT HE-
HAS EVER HELPED REBELS
Los Angeles, Calif, Sept. 25. Gen.
Luis Terraras, sr., formerly governor
of the Mexican state of Chihuahua and
regarded as one of the most influential
and wealthy citizens of Mexico, now
living on American soil, issued a state
ment tqday denying that he had in any
way encouraged a revolution, either
that of Madero or that of Orozco, or
any other, in bis native land, as he had
been accused In press dispatches from
El Paso, Texas, of having done.
The denial' was given to the public
through the senatorial committee now
holding an investigation here as to the
alleged relation of A, erican capital to
the Mexican disturbances. The state
ment was dated at Long Beach. Calif.,
where Gen Terrazas has a temporary

Mexico City, Mex., Sept. 25. A new movement to obtain peace in northern exico
was made today when president Madero and his cabinet instructed the minister of war to
offer amnesty to the followers of Pascual Orozco, the rebel leader. ...
' Stringent measures such as the government's recerrt suspension of constitutional guar
antees and execution of numerous rebels failed to havelhe deterrent effect expected by the
government. The revolution in the north, which two months ago ,was confined principally
to the "state of Chihuahua,' has spread to Sonora, Coahuila and other states.
Only yesterday president Madero asked congress for an appropriation of 20,000,000
pesos, or a loan authorization, admitting there was less than 30,000,000 pesos in the na
The national government is convinced that Gen. Higinio Aguilar, of the regular army,
who recently disappeared from the capital, is at the head of a large body of rebels oper

AFFECTS TWO SALOONS
Queer Situation Develops from lotion
of Controler In San Antonio
Austin, Tex., Sept 25. The attorney
general's adepartment held toda thart
the forfeiting of a liquor license by
the controler, ofa liquor dealer, op
erates to also close the saloons this
liquor dealer may own. This is the
position of the department despite the
fact that no complaint is filed against
the liquor dealer and no forfeiture Is
obtained for the other saloon. This
ruling grew out of the action of the
controler in declaring forfeited the
license of H. H Hewgley. of San An
tonio, and now he must close his
other saloon, although there has been
no violation of law. This provision
of the law will bo tested in the court
of criminal anpeals. through habeas

FIFTY MEN NOW
- HUNTING' FOR HIM
Clifton, Ariz., Sept 25. The bodies
of Albert Munguia and Jack Campbell
were brought to Clifton at Goclock last
night by undertaker Rascoe.
Munguia was shot In the middle of
the breast, and Campbell once in the
breast and through the neck.
Keppler's horse shied, throwing him
off and breaking his collar bone. He
was brought to a hospital at Morenci
last night and reported that the killing
was done by a Mexican, Anastacio Aviso,
about 20 years old, a trap being laid
for the officers. He fired on them about
a mile from his camp'.
It is understood that the same man
killed a cousin of Munguia a few years
ago at Globe. It is reported that he
sent "word to the officers "where to find
him and ambushed them.
The posse hunting him now numbers
about 50. It Is a wild country and the
chase is liable to be along one.
The country is greatly excited over
Sheriff Fatty was in Duncan at the
time of the tragedy but left overland
by horse to join- the posse.
Many are inclined still to believe the
first reports, that there was a bunch of
Mexicans who waylaid the officers and
that the man who sent for the officers
to come and arrest him is only the
leader of a band that has been stealing
and molesting things in general in that
section. It is believed when the officers
overtake the man they are after that
they will find him surrounded by
others of the same desperate character.
