Says Del Valle's Mission
Should Bo Investigated
by Senate.
Secretary of State's Private
Ambassador to Mexico
Is Received First.
California Senator Will Discuss
Situation at White House
Wasminuton, July 26. Willi the nt
tnoiphoro here chawed with the feeling
tht this Government Is about to pais
through a crisis In Its Mexican relations
Washington suddenly discovered to-day
that two envoys from the southern re
public instead of one are making ex
haustive reports to Secretary of State
Hryan. Upon one of these the Adminis
tration Is expected to shape Its course
tosard the Mexican situation.
The presence of these two ambassadors,
one official and one unofficial, each taking
turns ut the ear of Secretary Hryan. has
created a situation without parallel In
American diplomacy. Washington had
expected the arrival this morning of
Henry Lane Wilson. United States Am
bassador to Mexico. Mr. Wilson arrived
nnd proceeded to draw up for Secretary
Bryan a long report on conditions In
Mexico for the last three years. This
report formed the subject of a two hour
lonferenco between him and the Secretary
of State this afternoon.
The appearance on the scene of the
other ambassador to Mexico, however, in
the person of Reginald F. Del Valle, prac
tically on the heels of Henry Lane Wil
son, had not been generally anticipated,
but Mr. Dei Valle came to New York on
the same steamship as Mr. Wilson, to
Washington on the same train with him
and actually preceded the Ambassador
In conference with the Secretary of State
this morning. This afternoon he had a
long conference with Mr. Hryan again.
Url Valle Sought Wilson's Place.
It became definitely known this after
noon that Mr. 11 Valle, who U a mem
ber of tho California Senate anil Inn
been for fifteen years friend and admirer
of the present Secretary of State, having
been an "original Hrynn man, was sent
to Mexico to gather Information for the
Administration as to conditions down)
there. This most unusual assignment In
the nelds of diplomacy followed his fail
ure to get an appointment as Ambassador
to Mexico, succeeding Henry Lane llson
which he sought from his friend Mr.
It was disclosed to-day that it was at
the .Secretary's direction that Senator Del
Valle went to Mexico city and while
there operated almost under the nose of
the United States Ambassador.
When Ambassador Wilson was sum
moned back to Washington Del Valle
followed. There Is reason to believe
that he received a summons at the same
time as the Ambassador, for though v ll
son left very hurriedly Del Valle was
linht at his heels To-night Secretary
lirjan has before him reports presented
bi both men for purposes of comparison,
one from the official Ambassador and the
other from his personal representative,
That this one fact of Del Valle's mis
sion in Mexico city is likely to lead to an
open break between Ambassador Wilson
and the Administration was clearly Indl
ealed to-day. The Ambassador showed
plainly his resentment at the action of the
.Secretary of State. He complained that
not only Del Valle but William Bayard
Hale, magazine writer, had been sent to
Mexico city, each equipped with a copy
of the official code book of the State
Department. One of the two, the Am
bassador said, had asked an assistant at
tho embassy to help hltu use the code
book. This code book Is supposed to be
kuarded carefully by all ottlcluls of the
Ambassador Wilson said to-day that he
thought the matter waa'ono for invest!'
frit Ion by tho Sennte Committee on For
dsn itelutlons. This statement on tho
l-irt of the Ambassador Is regarded here
as a direct challenge to the President and
secretary llryan. which hardly can be

Kl, Paso, Tex., July 28, United States
Immigration Inspector Charles 11. Dixon
was shot and perhaps fatally wounded
this nfternoon In Juarez by a squad of
Mexican Federal soldiers.
Inspector Dixon had gone to Juarex to
Investigate a white slave case. Whllo he
was talking with n negro a squad of
drunken soldiers from the Juarex bar
racks arrested him and started toward
the foothills south of the town. It Is
said that Dixon, fearing the men were
going to kill him because they thought
him a United States officer with his olive
drab uniform, started to run down an
alley on the outskirts of the town. The
soldiers permitted him to run for n short
distance, when they opened fire on him,
shooting him through tho back.
Dr. Tappan. United States Immigration
Surgeon, was culled to Juarez to attend
Dixon and an effort will be made through
the Mexican Consul to get him back to
Kl Paso. Dixon made a statement to the
United States officials who went to Juarez
to Investigate his shooting. He said he
offered to go to tho commnndrr's quarters
with the soldiers, but Instead they dragged
him toward the outskirts of the town.
Dixon's wound wan through the small
of the back and the bullet passed through
his stomach. His wound is considered
very serious.
Dixon wns transferred to Kl Paso from
the San Diego Immigration station. He
Is n native of Texas, having been born
In Huntsvllle. Tex. His father now lives
in Wharton. Tex. Just after the shoot
ing, when F. W. Herkshlre, supervisor of
immigration for the United States on tho
Mexican border, went to Juarez to look
into the affair, accompanied by Inspector
Clarence Oatley, they were both Jailed
for a short time, but were released.
Washington, July 2. The State De
partment has not yet lecelved any official
report on the shooting of Charles B.
Dixon, United States Immigration Inspec
tor, by Federal forces at Juarez. Mexico,
this afternoon. A telegram has been sent
to the Consul nt Juarez calling on him for
a detailed account of the affair.
"It looks like a serious case." said Secre
tary Bryan when told of the shooting.
"We will do whatever Is necessary."

Withdraw Demand That Eight
Grievances Go to Arbi
Trainmen Nnmc Men to Act for
Them Eight to Serve
on Board.
The Kastern rnllro.ids wlthdiew yes
terday the eight grievances which they
had Insisted should be embodied In the
arbitration agreement with the trainmen
and conductors. This action averted any
possibility of a strike.
The representatives of the trainmen
had fought for- the elimination of any
propositions except the original demands
of the employees.
Two days ngo It was thought that
there would bo a compromise, that the
railroads would be willing to withdraw
some of their grievances and that the
representatives of the employees would
accept the rest.
In a letter to the Government media
tors on Thursday, however, A. It. Oarret
aon, president of the Order of Railway
Conductors, and W. tS. Lee. president of
the Brotherhood of Trainmen, mnde It
.plain that their position In declining
arbitration If any points except the de
mands of the trainmen and conductors
were Included was unchanged.
The surrender of the railroads came
In a letter from HUsha Lee, as chairman
of the managers' committee, to Judge
William Lea Chambers, chairman.' and
O. W. W. Hangar and Judge Martin A.
Knapp, members of the board of media-
tlon and conciliation appointed under j
the Newlands amendment to the Erdman !
Hallroads Wsltr Hlabt.
In this letter the railroads waived what
they considered their right to Include the
eight grievances In the articles of agree
ment to arbitrate.
Presidents (larretson and Lee were no
tified and the stipulation of the points
to be arbitrated, narrowed down to the
demands of the men, was signed by Ellsha
Lee for the railroads and by Oarretson
and Lee for the conductors and train
men. The members of the committee of S2
of the trainmen and conductors, repre
senting. Jdl the divisions on the different
roads," who were at their respective di
vision off duty awaiting the order to
strike, were told to return to work.
It was said that the decision to sur
render the eight demands followed n hur
ried exchange of telegrams between the
managers' committee and the presidents
of the different railroad.
President Garretson of the conductors
said after signing the arbitration agree
"We are glad that peace has been as
sured and that a strike of such magni
tude as the one which has been threat
ened has been averted."
Six Arbitrators to Ml.
The law as It stands provides for six ar
bitrators, two to be selected by the rnll
roada and two by the trainmen and con
ductors, the four to appoint two addi
tional men.
The arbitrators to represent the men
were appointed yesterday and have agreed
to act They are Lucius K. Sheppard.
senior vice-president of the Order of
Hallway Conductors, and Daniel 1.. Cease
of Cleveland. Ohio, who has been for
twenty-two years editor and proprietor
of the Ilailuau Trainman, the official
organ of the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen. He was appointed a member
of the Federal commission two years ngo
by President Taft, the commission taking
up, the question of workmen's compensa
tion. The representatives of the railroads on
the arbitration board will not be an
nounced before Tuesday. Two men had
been selected, but there was n doubt ns
to whether they would act. It was be
lieved that one of them was W. W. At
terbury, a vice-president of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad, who was one of the three
arbitrators of the demands of the fire
men. The four arbitrators will meet In this
city this week to agree on the two addi
tional members. In case they cannot
agree' on these arbitrators within fifteen
days they will be appointed by the board
of mediation and conciliation.
The award of the arbitrators under the
law Is to be made within forty-five days
after the first meeting and Is to be effec
tive on and after October 1. Tho award
Insures at least a year of peace.
Matters of Record,
The final letter to the Government
mediators from the heads of the train
men and conductors' organizations and
the letter of yesterday from Kllsha Lee
waiving the consideration of the railroads'
eight grievances are to supersede as mat
ters of record all other correspondence
on these points.
The eight grievances of the railroads
were as follows:

Saginaw. Mich. They permed somewhat
feeble. Mr. Arndt. who has lived here
since IS.", never was naturalized. They
were taken to Kills Island, to their tear
ful dismay, and a board of special In
quiry got to work on them. They speak
Kngllsh with v hardly perceptlblo accent,
which was in their favor, and an inter
preter was not necessary to convince the
board that the old couple should be. per
mitted to go on their way.
The wife did most of the talking, as
tradition has many wives do, but the
old fellow put In nil appropriate worn
here and there that helped their rase.
Mrs. Arndt said she came from Bavaria

her more than forty days to get arrows

came. Then they lost everything. They
retrieved their fortunes by going Into
the hotel business. About two months
ago they decided to take a look at their
old homes tu Germany.
The old couple were much disappointed
with the aspect of Germany. Nearly all
their old friends were dead and those left
did not look like the memory of them
stored In the minds of the Michigan
pioneers. The fares In the old towns
were mostly new faces of unfamiliar ex
pression. Mr. and Mrs. Arndt felt like
n pair of ghosts from the village grave
yards. They had become Americanized.
They decided that they had made n mis

The old fellow admitted that lie had
never become u citizen of the United
States, but that he had been for a long
time u voter In the State of Michigan
and that he had helped to elect some of
the "greatest Presidents of tho United

declared his- intention of becoming n

to November 8, 1894. to vote.

Convicts iicavinp Yesterday
Said More Trouble Was
Coming To-day.
UssiNINO, July 2. The fourth ut
tempt to destroy Sing Sing prison by tire
within five dnys was discovered by
Warden Clancy nt 6 o'clock to-night. The
warden wns Investigating the "escape" of
Schoenherr. the convict who disappeared
u week ugo yesterday and was found Fri
day In the hollow celling of the knitting
fnctory. The knitting gang Is locked up
In the cell house and the factory wus
supposed to be locked up tight.
When the warden entered he found n
big heap of kindling wood and Inflam
mable rubbish stacked up on the west side
of the shop. Kerosene oil In liberal
amounts had been poured over the pile,
and the whole thing wns waiting only for
the touch of a match. The pile was near
the ladder which leads to the hollow ceil
ing where Schoenherr was found.
The warden set out Immediately on an
other Investigation to learn If possible
who was to have started the blaze and
who were Implicated In the plot, but
late to-night he had not been able to get
any information oi any vaiue.
Schoenherr was put through a vig
orous Questioning, but. although admit
ting knowledge of the general plot ugalnst
Sing Sing and Its warden, declared that
he would never "squeal." "1 am no
squealer." ho said. "I was told what I
was to do and I know what the others
were to do. but I'm not telling anything.
I'm up against fifteen years now and
nothing on earth is going to nuke me
All C'onfaslon Again.
The newest attempt to burn the prison
has thrown the whole situation Into con
fusion again and the warden and his men
do not know what to expect next. Wnr
drn Clancy Is continuing his inquiry, ad
ding each new incident to tho list as fast
as It occurs, and Is keeping n close eye
on alt sides to anticipate so far as pos
sbile the next attack.
The third attempt to burn the prison
was made this morning when a fire
started In one of the cells In the cell
block. The first attempt was made on
Tuesday when $200,000 damage was done,
and the second on Thursday when a mat
tress was set afire In the clothing factory.
This blaze wss put out In five minutes.
Warden Clancy would not say to-night
whether the second draft of convicts
would he sent to Auburn to-day or not.
Further trouble Is expected when the
draft Is made and the warden, as on the
occasion of the first draft. Is keeping
his own council as to time and the
men 'who are to go. It Is expected that
about sixty-five men will go In the second
detachment whenever tne order comes.
Two men who finished their terms to
day and left the prison said before they
left that there wus going to lie trouble in
the prison to-morrow, and Warden Clancy
has received a tip to the same effect from
Inside the prison and is on his guard.
The new head of Sing Sing prison,
Warden Clancy, met ex-Warden John S.
Kennedy up In the village to-day.
He was accompanied by one of his
closest friends. George Jenkins, a
Tammany sympathizer, who is Comp
troller Sohmer's representative at the
prison. Tho ex-warden sh-Hik hands
with Warden Clancy, who Is the ap
pointee of Gov. Suiter's prison superln-'
tendent, and made this statement :
If any of my friends in the prison
have been encouraging the molt there
they aie badly misguided and are not
acting ns true frends.
I appreciate the good will of Warden
Clancy, which he showed at the start of
the trouble when he said that he did not
suspect me of any part In causing It.
though he believed friends of mine to be
concerned In It."
Clancy tilsd tu r llliu.
Warden Clancy was very well pleased.
It did not appear that he had sought tho
meeting with Kennedy, for whom his
convicts have been yelling, or whether the
initiative came from the other side.
George Jenkins said he was not In
sympathy with the act of his brother,
Town Supervisor John F. Jenkins, In
stationing naval militiamen In the village
strrets on Thursday night or In having
national guardsmen ready to motor
madly to Osslnlng "when the Jali break
Supervisor Jenkins didn't apologize for
his acts. He said:
"I see by the papers to-day that War
den Clancy says he did not want tho
mllltln called out. There was no sug
gestion on my part that he did. In view
of the condition of absolute loss of con
trol over the convicts In Sing Sing prison,
which existed to the knowledge of every
one conversant with 'affairs there, the ac
tion taken In arranging to have a military
force on call In case of an attempt to
break out of prison was simply a rea
sonable measure of precaution fnr the
protection of the lives nnd property and
perhaps tho women of Osslnlng should
those beasts break out of prison.
"I made the arrangements not for to
day alone, but for future days, and they
will continue so until the people of Os
slnlng are entirely satisfied that there Is
no danger."
Says Warden slighted Hint.
Tho Supervisor says ho tried to talk
over the situation with Warden Clancy
and the warden turped his back. Clancy
says he doesn't remember the occasion.
Mr. Jenkins used to be captain of Com
pany C, Seventy-first Heglmcnt, and served
In Cuba.
