The British Fleet Obtains Much
off Its Fuel From the Tampico
Fields in Mexico.
WASHINGTON, Jun. IS?The Unit
ed States government has warned
General Venuatiano Carranza that
"serious consequences muy follow"
his threatened confiscation or foreign
owned oil plants In Tampico. This
announcement was made by Secretary
Bryan today after ? conference with
Sir Cecil Sprlng-Rlce. the British
ambassador, and representatives of
American oil concerns.
Already the Carranza officials have
enforced a virtual embargo on the ex
portation uf oil by a big English com
The British ambassador, at Mr.
Bryan's suggestion, sent to the Brit
ish consul at Vera Cruz an urgent
protest for General Carranza. As tho
British fleet obtains much of Its fuel
from the Tampico fields, the possibil
ity of serious complications over Car
ranza'8 attitude is fully realized by
the American government.
Mr. Bryan said today that the for
eign owned oil companies "feared
confiscation of their well" by Carran
za and that today's action had been
taken to forestall such action. A de
I cr?e issued by the Carranza govern
I ment makes it impossible to some
foreign oil companies to operate with
out the consent of the Carranza au
I thorltles and It is said some Amerl- 1
can concerns have been forced to pay '
so heavy a tax that they have been 1
i compelled to shut down.
The prospect of a battle on the out- '
skirts of Tampico Ib expected here to '
I develop the situation further. If Villa 1
forces are victorious, a solution of the !
problem Is confidently expected be
cause of previous assurances by tho ,
The following summary of the sit- .
uatton In Tampico Is a telegram from ,
that point dated lato yesterday was ,
made'public by the state department:
"The lino between Monterey and
lamp I co has been cut and American. ,
.colonists in isolated districts are
sending women to Tamptco, which
place is still anticipating an attack.
The food supply Is said to bo short.
Many Americans have* been thrown
out of work on account of the oloslng ,
j down of the petroleum companies. On
account of tbe recent petroleum de
|cree and a lack of confidence in con
stitutionalist money, business is said
to be demoralized, it is said that in
the Tampico consular district there
are at least 1,200 Americans."

APPLICATION FOR LOANS
MUST BE MADE BY FEB
To Date Only $10,000 of Cotton
Loan Fund Has Been Ap
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.?The fed
eral reserve board, acting as the
central committee of the $135,000.000
cotton loan fund, decided tonight not
to comply with requests recently re
ceived to extend the- time limit for
loan applications beyond February
1. Applications mailed on that day
will be tbe last considered.
It developed today that bona fide
applications to the New York commit
tee in charge of actual administration
?f the fund amount only tu about
(10,000. This fact 1b tokeu here lo
Indicate that probably not more thnn
i few millions of the sum subscribed
svcr will be applied for. In view of
this, members of tbe board felt that it
ivas net just to keep all the money of
the subscribing banks tied up for a
period beyond February 1.
In connection with its action on the
loan fund the board annouced that
Vf. P. G. Hardlg, its southern mem
ber, shortly would visit each of the
southern federal reserve banks to dlB
:uss with them questions of discount
rates, eligible paper and other mat
ters. He also will investigate and re
port on tbe cotton market and tbe
probable acreage of the next crop.
Although the statement docs not
mow, it became known tonight that
me of the purposes of Mr. Hardlng's
visit is to talk with southern bank
ers about tbe transfer of government
funds to reserve bunks. When Sec
retary McAdoo first broached ' this
subject to the board nearly six. weeks
igo several board members questioned
the. policy of such transfers.
Since that time, however, Attorney
General Gregory has held that the
reserve board is &n" independent co
ordinate branch of the government
entirely distinct from the treasury
department. At tonight's meeting it
was said no opposition was aroused
to the plan.
Mr. Harding is expected to deter
mine the actum needs of reserve banks
and through them the needB of mem
ber banks. He probaly will discover
whether reserve banks actually desire
government funds and his report will
put the board In a position to give
Intelligent advice in the matter.

from this place a day or two ago,
destined for Glasgow, Scotland. The

New York. An order for more than
1,000,000 feet of such woods, in logs,
has been placed here. .
Inquiry develops the fact that the
tupelo and sycamore are wanted In
Scotland for tbe making of spools for
