Tbe nnexpected -orders issued from Washington for the mobilization on the Texas-Mexican border of 20,00C of the
regular troops, including some from tbe insular possessions, and four battleships, have caused rumors of possible con
nection jmAth the revolution, against 'President Porflrlo Diax of the Mexican republic. War department officials say
the mobilization Is merely a big war game, a reply, to the charges of inefficiency. In order to demonstrate to th na
tion horr rapid! jr one-fourth of tbe United States standing army can be assembled. The same assertion applies to the
battleships Tennessee, Montana, North Carolina and Washington, under command of Rear Admiral Sydney A. Staun
ton. It Is also asserted hat disquieting private advices from Diaz to President Taft caused the more. It Is said
that the reclamation project in the xalleyof the Colorado rtver, dependent upon the huge dam now nearly completed,
was In danger of destruction at the hands of lnsurrectos and that soldiers must protect the property. England,
Washington bears, has demanded that the United States protect its interests or it will be obliged to do so. The ma
Hearers are in charge of General Leonard Wood, who directs the action from Washington.
