Three cavalry stables.a store

the hrst (ire occurred, eon?

Two other firrs of recent

San Antonio, T>x.. May 14. General
Funston bogan eonsideration to-day of
a plan for reorganir.ation of the border
patrol. Having under his direct con?
trol almost .'.0.000 men, he outlmed to
his staff a reii.tnbufion of forces that
he believed would guarantee protection
of Nmerican residents from Mexican
ra'ders.
Forcts at border stations already

rt. is improbable that more tre ps

crossed into Mexico near Roquillas as
a result of the Glenn Springs raid.
Kour troops of cavalry and a machine

close to the line, scouting through a
limited territory south of the border,
but there never has heen anv intention
of .rndinp forward at that, point a

south of Boquillas fails to looat* any
