Some very long conversations have oc- I

record breaking one was on Wednes- '
day night when the line was used by
Gen. Funston for three hours without .
The army has right of way In the '

Is a shorter route to San Antonio than
by way of Denver, but the employ-

the conversation more distinct than
the line by way of Amarillo. and for
this reason the longer wire Is used.
There is no wire directly cast from
EI Paso to San Antonio.
SMITH TRIES TO GET MORE
TROOPS FOR EL PASO CITY
Washington, D. C, April 1. Repre
sentative Smith who received urgent
telegrams from Tom Lea, mayor of El
Paso, asking that more United State
troops be stationed at Kl Paso, went
to the white house and asked president
Wilson to hae additional troops dis
patched to El Paso. He told the presi
dent that he had given up as a hope
less task repeated efforts to get the
war department to do anything and
tnat he and his people in Texas wanted
action Immediately. The president
promised Mr. Smith that he would look
into the matter today and see what
could be done. Mr. Smith deolarcs
that the war department is leaving
entirely too many matters and too much
authority with Gen. Funston and that
he proposes to get results hereafter
by appealing direct to the white house.

Charges telegraphed to senator Cul

Allison, who died this week In the Fort

in Mexico, have suddenly attracted at

the American expedition into Mexico.
While hospital tents have been taken
in with the expeditionary forces, the
arrangements for transporting the men
from the front to the temporary base
hospital at Columbus and the base" hos
pital at El Pa&p are very crude and
far from what sick people should re
ceive. The father of the dead lieutenant
only emphasizes what returning Amer
icans have said of the lack of attention
given the sick men brought back from

Friday, for instance, the weather was
wretched, and after the men were un
loaded from the coach they stood In
the cold drizzle waiting for orders. In

car. Later word came to send them
out to the hospital In the mule-drawn
ambulances at the post.
For five, miles these sick chaps are
jolted. The ambulances are as cold
as sleeping porches and as guaty. "I
don't see how a fellow with pneumonia
could possibly pull through such ex
posure." said a man yesterday.

On Thursday after the order was

States army in Mexico are in need oi
oat'. The officers who are engaged
in purchasing supplies state very
frankly that the 7008 to 8090 animals
in the six regiments of cavalry, the
pack trains, and the artillery batteries,
as well as the mounts for the officers
of the infantry, need more oats for
their daily menu than they are now
Considering the fact that there are
approximately 60M horses in the six
cavalry regiments now engaged In the
punitive expedition, and not less than
1500 hones and mules In the other
departments of the army of expedition,
90,000 pounds of oats would be re-'
quired a day. This figure Is reached
on the basis of 12 pounds of rations
a day which Is regulation.
Two cars of oats are said to have
gone down to Casas Grandes earlier
in the week. If these cars annroxlmat-
ed 45,000 pounds each, they would only

army could secure them, would help
Two cars of oats were consigned to
the Casas Grandes country earlier in
the week and are reported to have
reached their destination without any
mishaps. Six additional cars of oats
were exported through the customs
department Saturday morning, being a
consignment ot a local concern to a
business house In Casas Grandes, but
ostensibly for the use of the army.
The box cars containing the oats have
a capacity of 40,000 to 60,000 pounds.
Shipments Sent South.
In addition to the six cars of oats
which crossed the river early Saturday
morning there are three cars of oats,
one car of gasoline and one car of
provisions to be added to the freight
train, which left over the North West
ern today for Casas Grandes. The
shipments are all being made by pri
vate concerns and consigned to mer
chants and commission men In the
Casas Grandes district.
Rig Shipment Stops.
One of the biggest shippers of grains
and feedstuffs entertained the Idea
of shipping some fifty cars of oats to
Casas Grandes, but on Saturday morn
ing cancelled the proposition on the
grounds that the shipments would be
made at too great a risk. He took
the position that the roadbed of the
North Western is bfcd, the equipment
faulty, and the length of time the sol
