The Mexican consul, the chief of the

the Ninth cavalry, will be arraigned
on justice of the peace warrants.
Holderness is acting adjutant of the
regiment. He and his fellow officers
are said to have acted under instruc
tions from Colonel Guilfoyle.
The arrests are the result of the at
tempts of the Mexican authorities to
utilize he United States army officials
after the county and state authorities
had refused to act.
A few days ago the county authori
ties were asked to arrest Joaquin Es
quera, a supposed rebel leader. The
county authorities refused to issue a
warrant or make the nrrest. Mean
while, it is alleged, Colonel Guilfoil,
commanding the Ninth cavalry, had
received orders to arrest any rebel
leader found on American soil.
STEAM TURBINE EXPLODES;
THREE DEAD, 6 WOUNDED
Newport, R. I.—The explosion of
the forward end of the port turbine,
together with the steam chest, on the
torpedo boat destroyer Waike, off
Brenton's reef lightship, killed Lieu
tenant Donald P. Morrison, the chief
engineer, and wounded eight others,
two of whom, J. W. Rumpf and H. L.

The explosion came just as the
Walke started on a full-speed test, in
company witb other destroyers.
The discipline of the crew is said to
have been perfect, and their conduct
in leaping down into the steam-filled
engine-room to carry out their wound

praise from their superiors. Lieuten

Parade Without Permit Dispersed

Lawrence, Mass.—Police and para-

Sunday before a demonstration by
members of the Industial Workers of
the World. Two officers were stab

bed and an Industrial Worker leader
was captured after a hard fight and
then freed. Two arrests were made.
Carto Tesca, of Pittsburg, an edi
tor, who is an organizer of the Indus
trial Workers, was in custody but
gained his freedom a minute or two
later. Persons who saw Tesca's ar
rest said he was rescued by comrades.
Tesca said the police let him go. All
the police professed ignorance of the
The clash was unexpected. More
than 20,000 operatives met at the rail
road station to welcome 700 members
of the Industrial Workers of the
World who had come from Boston to
participate in a parade to the graves
of Anna Lopizzo and John Ramay,
who were killed in the strike riots last
After the visitors had detrained an
impromptu parade started, turning
finally into Essex street, the main
business thoroughfare. The parade
was informal and no application had
been made for a parade permit. The
police, notified that the operatives
were marcning, attempted to end the
A squad of 25 officers was sent to
Essex and Lawrence streets, where
they threw a line across Essex street
and awaited the procession. Two
large banners were carried by the
marchers. One was inscribed: "The
only justice; the freedom for Ettor
and Giovannitti." The other bore the
words, "Police and Militia," and be
low, "Who killed Anna and John?"
When the head of the parade reach
ed the line of officers it halted and an
argument began. The police notified
the marchers that they must disperse
because they had no permit. Those in
the front rank were endeavoring to
fall back, when suddenly the marchers
in the rear pressed forward and the
mill workers tried to pass the police.
They struck right and left at the offi
cers, who responded by swinging their
clubs. Many paraders were knocked
to the ground.
In some instances the marchers
robbed the officers of their clubs and
began to beat the police. The latter
were forced to retreat into Lawrence
street. It was here that Tesca was
seized by officers. Angered by the
arrest of their leader, the crowd made
a rush for the officers. The police ap
peared to be fighting to hold the pris
oner, but a moment or two later Tesca
was at liberty. In the fight two Ital
ians, Sebastiano de Mano and Vitto
Loncasterta, were arrested and taken
to the station house. As they were
being taken through the door of the
station a shot was heard. It appeared
to have been fired by someone in the
crowd, but the operatives cried out
that the police were shooting.
Later the crowd was driven through
Lawrence street and to the commons,
were the paraders dispersed.

War Minister Resigns.
London —A cabinet crisis in^Japan,
says a Tokio dispatch to the Times, is
threatened over the proposal to estab

in Corea. It is reported the War
minister has tendered his resignation,
and that he is supported by Count

Prince Yamagata, president of the

TO FIGHT TURKS
Ultimatum To Be Delivered In
Long Standing Dispute.
Autonomy for Macedonia, Albania,
Old Servia and Crete to Be
London—The four Balkan states
will deliver an ultimatum to Turkey
within a few days, according to the
most reliable news received here.
It will demand autonomy for Mace
donia, Albania, Old Servia and Crete.
In the event of failure to comply with
this demand, the Balkan coalition will
repeat it and at the same time will
address a collective note to the great
powers notifying them that after the
expiration of another three days the
Balkan states will enforce the demand
by recourse to arms.
Thus there will be a respite of a
week before hostilities begin.
This respite will be used by the
powers to seek to arrange a compro
mise with Turkey acceptable to the
four states which, it is believed,
would prefer a way out without blood
No further news has been received
of reported frontier conflicts, but ten
sion is extreme, especially because of
the seizure by the Turkish authorities
of Greek vessels.
WAR POSSIBILITY INCREASES
Europe Now Discusses Problem of
Berlin—A semi-official statement on
the Balkan situation is published in
the Nord Deutsche Allegemeinze Zei
tung. The statement follows:
"The alleged or actual measures of
Turkish mobilization have given the
Balkan states a reason or excuse for
mobilizing their forces. It cannot be
determined with certainty whether
their action is a counter move to the
Turkish preparations or whether it in
dicates serious belligerent intentions.
The measures taken by the Balkan
states, however, undoubtedly have in
creased the possibility of a collision
between them and Turkey.
"The efforts of the powers to pre
serve peace continue. However la
mentable it would be should these
efforts prove unsuccessful, there still
would be no cause for immediate anx
iety concerning German interests.
Still more so because there is every
reason to hope that the conflict, if it
should occur, will be confined to the
scene of its origin.
"Late events have increased the
probability of a conflict. The Euro
pean cabinets, however, have been
forced to reckon with this possibility
for a considerable period and have had
air pie time to discuss among them
selves their attitude in such an event
The German foreign minister, Al
fred Yon Kiderlen-Waechter, in an in
terview on the situation, said:
"The situation is so precarious from
a mi^tary point of view that hostili
ties may break out at any moment.
The great powers, however, are united
in their determination not to permit
any change in the territorial position.
"The possibility of any great pow
er's becoming involved if war should
break out may be regarded as out of
the question. Hostilities certainly
will be localized."
The Turkish embassy here believes
that there is scarcely one chance in
twenty of preserving peace.
CORNER IN BUTTER
SENDS PRICES SOARING
Chicago—A corner in the available
supply of butter, which promises to
carry the price to the high level of
last year and possibly higher, con
fronts the consumer of this product.
The big packers are supposed to be
the interests engineering the deal.
The effect of the control of the
available supply of butter is already
being felt and the price is now 2}
cents higher than a year ago at this
date, despite the fact that supplies
are 11,000,000 pounds greater than
last year, as shown by the monthly re
port on cold storage stocks given to
the trade September 7.
Another report is due soon, which
will probably show even a greater ex
cess in the supply.

Burglary Rate Advance*.
San Francisco—On the heels of a
series of burglaries and holdups, each
running into the thousands, public an
nouncement was made here Thursday
that the burglary insurance rate had
been raised until it is now equal to
the highest in the country—that; of
Chicago. In defense of their position
insurance men said that they either
had to advance the rate or go out of
business, as their losses were such
that they were not paying expenses.
