Husband's Depositors Cry
Out as She Goes to
See Daughter Wed.
Shrieks Arise When Bejewelled
Mother and Bridal Party
Leave St. Thomas's.
With a dozen clamoring depositors
of the defunct Siegel bank looking
on, Mrs Henry Siegel was served with
? summon1' on the steps of St. Thom?
as's Church yesterday aftcr'-o?r
as she was about to enter the church
to witness the marriage of her daugh?
ter, Dorothy Violet Wilde, to Karl Jo?
seph .M??oii. of St. Louis.
["he depositors, all of whom ware
women rather poorly dressed, did not
recognize Mrs. Siegel when she left her
coach, but once they found her out
they made n rush for the door of the
church, apparently bent on creatin,'
trouble. A big policeman barred the
way, however, and the women, littering
all kinds cf threats, lay in wait until
the wedding was over.
As Mrs. Siegel came down the sten?
to enter her carriage she wore a neck?
lace of large diamonds, and this
seemed to inflame the depositors in the
drfun- bank.
"Look at Her!"
"Look at her!" cried one of them.,
"Why doesn't she give us back our
money? Look at her diamonds!"
The women edged as near as they
could to the entrance to the carriage
and seemed about to pounce upon Mr?.
"We'll ti>- her! " screamed one of them.
"The idea of her having ??neh a s\v>ll
wedding for her daughter, and we with
children starving at home!"
Siegel apparently hnd scented
tiouble, for there wer,- two big police?
men on guard at each side ?>f the can?

attitude O? the women they held them

One of the women- did manage to
reach ;he door of the carriage just <i?
. m?. hurling a letter at Mrs.
Siegel, screamed:
"Give me back my $9,000!"
The appearance of the women depos?
itors ; a strong contrast to
the richly gowned bride, her mother
and the wedding guosts. The d<
ilors were poorly clad. The contra:;',
was made all the more vivid when Mr..
Siegel, wearing many jewels. j?nd her
daughter, whose adornments were no
less plain to public view, drove away
to the accompaniment of tears fror.i ;
the women massed nround their car?
.Mis. Siegel was hailed as the friend
of the depositors in her husband'"
brink when, following the filing of her
suit for divorce, she gave out a state
n'en' in which she alleged that she
had known for years that her husband
was miaappropriating the money of his
depositors, and that she had warned
him that to continue doing 10 meant
serious rouble for him. This, she said,
she learned through overhearing dis-J
eussions between Siegel and his part?
ner. Prank K. Vogel.
She also gave the depositors hope

Ambassador Da Gama made the following statement:
"We have protocolized to-night articles of the plan of pacification
concerning the international side of the Mexican problem. Before
that protocolization we made the statement that we deemed it ad?
visable to invite the Constitutionalist party to send delegates to discuss
with the Mexican delegates the internal aspects of the problem."
This statement was incorporated in the minutes of the meeting.
The protocols follow:
Article I.?The provisional government referred to in the
protocol No. 3 shall be constituted by agreement of the delegates
representing the parties between which the internal struggle in
Mexico is taking place.
Article 2 (Section A).?Upon the constitution of the pro?

upon diplomatic relations between the two countries will be re?
stored. Section B?The government of the United States of

Mexican delegates regarding the inter?

be construed as infringing upon the
sovereignty of Mexico, and the fact
that the United States has waived

character and all demand.; for repara?

There will now follow what will be

After Fierce Battles
Rebels Capture Key to
Huerta's Capital
( By 'i- k grapa ?* I
.1 i.ire-., Mexico, June -4. In a dis?
patch from General Orestes Pereyra to
Colcnc! Toma.? ?rnelas, commander of
the Juarez garrison, announcement was
made to-night that General Pancho
\ ilia's troops have captured Zacatecas.
The dispatch says the city really fell
into the hands of the rebels last night,
bul lighting continued to-day in the
streets and suburbs, the Federals cov
?ring their retreat with a vicious rifle
Rebel losses are given at 2.-00 killed
and wounded, and Federal losses are
reported twice as great, although the
ligures are not official and merely esti
made at Torre?n on information
from the front. General Pcrevra's
..re was dated at Torre?n and was
conflicting as to the date of the fall of
General Toribio Ortega, one of Villa's
chief lieutenants, is reported killed in
the lighting, and General Maclovio
Herrera, supposed to be Villa's enemy,
but lighting with him against the com?
mon enemy, was seriously wounded,
(ieneral Trinidad Rodriguez, a noted
rebel leader, also was woundetl.
Details Held Back.
Following the custom which he es?
tablished during the desperate lighting
for the possession of Torre?n, Villa
would permit no word of the progr?>>s
of the Zacatecas battle to be sent out
until he had the city safely in his
hands. Messages from the front to-day
to!?I of despi-r.ite lighting in the su?
burbs in which the rebels were several
times driven back by the fury of the
Federal ?ire, but no details of the later
progress of the battle, when the tables
were turned and Villa began to win,
were allowed to pass the censor until
the Federal garrison had been \an?
I o tails were not given in the Tor?
re?n dispatches concerning the fate of
?he Federal troops. The dispatches
?aid that Villa had many prisoner
i*. is presumed that the bulk of the
Federal army of General Barron was
able to escaoe from the city.
. dead and nundreds of wounded
were left in the city by the Federals,
one dispatch states.
Vivas for Villa.
Juarez is celebrating the fall of Za
- into rebel hands. When it be?
came known that a message had V.-.n
received announcing the capture, the
regimental band was ordered out, a
great crowd gathered in the stre.'ts,
and vivas for Pancho Villa were given
by old and young. Salutes were h red,
soldiers in the cuartel rushed out into
the streets and tired their guns into the
air, and the whole town became insane
with joy.
Saltillo, Mexico. June M. Federal
troops at San Luis Potos? already have
evacuated tha-t town, with the excep?
tion of a small garrison, aeordiag to a
report by courier received by Ckneral

Chain of Drygood Concerns
Will Receive Assistance
Over Dull Time.
Shortly after noon yesterday. when
It became known in Wall Street that
the directors' meetings of both the
United Dry Goods Companies and the
Associated Merchants' Company had
been adjourned for a week, the pre?
ferred stock of the former com.
opened on the Stock Exchange at 93's.
Two more sales each of 100 shares
followed, at 90% and 87.
An hour later there was another sale
of 100 shares at Si?, the last for the
day. The transact ons in th it small
aggregate of shares marked a decline
of lt'i points from the last previous
sale on the Exchange. The decline was
accompanied by rumors that took many
forms, but finally brought in the name
of the H. B. Claflin Company.
So circumstantial were the stone?
that after the close of the market the
stock of the United Dry Goods Com?
panies was quoted at 25 bid, 80 offered,
and the common shares, which
changed hands at 83, on June '20, were
offered at 65, with the best bid -"
There was no trading in the shares of
the H. B. Claflin Company, which are
listed on the Exchange but seldom
dealt in.
The United Dry Goods Companies,
the only one of the three most import?
ant corporations in the Claflin system
whose stocks were traded in, was al?
together free from the implications in
the rumors. They concerned the H. P
Claflin Company alone, but ihottirh
there was the highest authority for the
statement that no trouble had touched,
or could come, to the United company,
the confusion of rumors made it a suf?
ferer so far as the quotations for its
vere concerned.
Like the United company, the A?
sociated Merchants' Company is alto?
gether free of suspicion. Its name
was brought into the story, wholly
because it owns a majority of the
stock of the H. B. Claflin Company.
Stock control of the Associated Mer?
chants' Company is owned, in turn,
by the United Dry Goods Companies.
The H. B. Claflin Company is th?
corporate successor of the famous
wholesale drygoods house of the same
name, founded by the father of John
Claflin, who is now head of the sev?
eral companies in the Claflin system.
When John Claflin formed the
United Dry Goods Companies it.
to take care of his numerous dry
goods enterprise.?, the old company
was taken in as the wholesale de?
partment of the combination, which
embraced a number of department
stores in tris city and la Newark.

Mr. John Claflin had a long confer?
ence with Mr. John Pierpont Morgan
late in the afternoon, but neither
would say anything for publication
There was a general impression in the
street that the great companies were
in good condition and could have
