We talk mlghty big, our indlgnatlon

it had happened in Rhode Island, a

Reducing Number of Ships
in Commission Called
tTrr-m Tra Trltiur.a Biraau 1
Washington, May 12. -To get officers
..:..l men for the tiiree new dread?
noughts, N'evada, oklahoma and Penn
sylvanla, Secretary I'aninJs ordered
to-day that six battleships be placed in
reserve with 40 per cent complementa.
Although several other reasons were
assigned for the order, Rear Admiral
Henson, fhief of .N'aval Operatlons, ad
mitted thut need of men for the new
ships was the real one.
The additlon of three ships to the
navy this spring, therefore, results in
reducing the number of battlet.hips in
commission by three. When the Ari?
zona is commissioned next fall it will
probably be necessary to place other
vessels in reserve to get a tomplement
for her.
The six battleships put on the reserve
list are the Connecticut, Louisiana,
N'ew Jersey, Virginia, Rhodo island
and Wabyaaha. All are of tbe r-econd
line, or pre-dreadnought type.
Would Require Militia.
Under the navy regulations vessel.
in rc.erve are required to bc in readi
ness on t4-.o to four days' notiee. There
i.a, however, no way of placing the six
battleships again in commission with?
out calling on the naval militia to make
up th-- iull complenient.
Admirnl Henson said to-day that the
six battleships would be used for the
naval militia cruises this summer, 40
per cent of the crew being regular
navy men and 60 per cent militia. He
added that they might be kept in re?
serve indetinitely as a rendezvous for
the militia in case of 4\ar.
Some of the men gained by retiring
thc six ships will be used to place a
division of six destroycrs in full com?
mission. These have been operating
with reduced eomplements.
To-day's orders bring the number of
battleships in re?cr.e up to tifteen, in?
cluding one dreadnough*. the North

ers operating with reduced eomple?

Simultaneously with thia announee

Secretary Lansing said that .Mr. Gerard
had heen asked to ascerUin what pun?
ishment was inflicted on the comman
der of the submarine that attacked the
Sussex. He haa been instmcted not to

the information informally. Thia
method leaves the Administration free

All thought of an adjustment of the

Juan N Amador, sub-seeretary of

Question of Use of Railroads May Become
Vital Issue of Negotiations with Advent
of the Rainy Season.
Washington, May 12.?The fact that the Pershing expe
,dition, despite failure of the El Paso cconference to reach an
'agreement, actually is moving toward the border, is regarded
here as a sure sign that intervention will be avoidcd.
The War Department announeed to-day that General
Pershing waa gradually withdrawing his force.-; from th^ ad
jvanced positions, which have extended about -100 miles into
i Mexico, and soon would move his base from Xamiquipa to Co
lonia Dublan, 100 miles from the border.
Pending new orders from tho President, it was plain at the
War Department that General Pershing's expedition would re
Imain in Mexico watching developments beyond the borde**.
Meanwhile mobilization of national guardsmen from the bor
i der states and of additional regulars to .strengthen the border
i patrol at points along the 1.800-mile stretch not protected by
? the expedition continues.
Should raiding be renewed, additional state troops will be
called out for border duty, and wherever the bandits leave a
' hot trail the army will not hesitate to pursue them into Mexico.
