They declared that not ono penny from these sources has been received by Carranza, mid. furthermore, that ho has laid down tho general principle that no funds of this character shall be accepted for tho pro motion of the Constitutionalist cam paign. The statements of tho nctlvity of "big business" In fomenting the Mexi can revolution, based upon letters taken from tho files of Sherbourno G. Hop kins, a Washington lawyer, who hus represented Carranza hero, caused a stir at Constitutionalist headquarters to day. Hopkins himself has been known here for a long time as counsel' for Henry Clay Pierce, but ho joined to day with tho other members of tho Carranza Junta In asserting that not a dollar had been received by Carranza from Mr. rierco or any other business Interest. Oarranza's representatives backed up their denials with a challengo to tho newspaper which Is printing the stolen rorrcspondenco to shmv in any way that tho Carranza revolution had over hern financed from American or foreign ourcei, Protrrtlnic J lie liitrrmln. Hopkins, whllo acknowledging that he has acted as Henry Clay Tierce's counsel whllo promoting tho Constitu tionalists' propaganda here declared that Mr I'lcrco was entirely within his rlphts and duties as an American citl ten in seeking to protect his own Inter ns in northern Moxlci Mr. Htpklns contended that Mr. Pierce's solo purpose In urging the for mation by Carranza. of the railroads In rorthrrn Mexico Into a soparato sys tern with a civil management was to protect his own and tho holdings of other Americans which wcro threatened 1 tho continued military management. Other efforts by Mr, J'lcrco, ho con t'ndrd, related solely to the reopening of northern Mexico to his oil business, eh had been interrupted by Huertn. The letters passing between Hopkins nil Mr. rierco and between Hopkins mil ronstitutloniillst officials wero trtKeti so Hopkins nays, from his desk few weeks: ago. A man entered his (moo at night through a transom and removed the documents. Wlilln (bo letters themselves show en their faro that Hopkins was doing fvfrj tiling po.sNlblo to promote tho in terest of Pierre In Mexico, thcro Is no fvideneo that ho succeeded In getting r-rv fur with Carranza. In fact, tho latter has manifested an apparent lu liilrrenre toward his suggestions in favor of Mr. pierce This fact wiw pointed out ,,s proof that Mr. I'lcrco's "fluencc did not extend beyond Hop Wr" himself, and possibly Homo mem Wrx f t,c Constitutionalist Junta. 11 likely, though, that tho corre 'pomleneo will be nwrto tho subject of a ('iiisresslonal Inquiry. A Senate cont ra. ttr trie, ( (1f,0w n yrar or two ago 'tint the MHdero revolution wns financed I mei-ictin Interests, and at that time 4 ew heir to the throne, and his wife the fact was brought out that Hopkins ropresented Henry Clay Pierce. That, however, was as far as the committed was able to go. It was explained by Constitutional ists hero that Jose Vnsooncrlos, who accepted expenso money from Mr. Pierce, was not at the time olllcially representing the First Chief. He re ceived his commission from Carranza later. It was contended, He hail rep resented the Pierce Interests, as coun sel in Mexico city. Zutinrnn I'nlla It C'nlilliiuv. Scnor Zubaran Capmany, Ocn. Car ranza's accredited representative here, made the following statement to-day: "The New York Herald published to day a statement against tho Mexican revo lution, making tho folowlng calumnious Imputations: "Thnt the revolution li In the hands of big Interests represented by Henry Clay Pierce, who Is endeavoring to obtain tho control of the railways In Mexico; that outsldo influences of 'big business' hnve united In order to prevent Mr. Carranza yielding to the effort of the President of the United States to bring about the pa cification of Mexico through mediation and diplomacy; that Khcrbourne O. Hop kins Is tho directing head of tho revolu tion and that the undersigned has been In touch with 11. C. I 'I tree and perhaps has received money from him. "Tho undersigned an special representa tive in Washington of Gen. Carranza, the chief of tho Mexican revolution, emphati cally danles the foregoing Imputations and tho perfidious calumniation. "The policy of Mr. Carranza, who Is tho only ono according to the plan of Guada lupe, who represents the Mexican revolu tion and who Is the only one who could obligate it by his nets or those of his duly authorized repicsentatlves at Washington, has been and always will bo that of counselling nothing but the true and legit imate Interests of tho Mexican peoplo and opposing himself against the Influence of tho big financial Interests either for eign or domestic In tho politics of our country. "And now that the name of It. C. Pierce has been mentioned, I must say In tho most emphatic manner that the In terests of this gentleman have not been solicited nor offered nor wouhl be ad mitted by tho revolution. It Is absurd to believe that the Mexicans would be shed ding their blood to free themselves from certain financial tyrannies In order to de liver themselves Into the hands of other tyrannies whichever they be. Neither th" oil enterprises nor the railroad enter prises ought to be a bar to the develop ment of tho Mexican nation i they will be Insldn tho law, factors of national prosperity, -o Deal With "Hilt llunlnc." "Mr. Carranza does not recognize nor will tin recognize any liilhienrn of the 'big business' of foreigners In Mexico to determine, his Internal policy and conse quently It Is a calumny to say that owing to such Intlucnres ho has nut cif ented deal with the Internal questions of Mex ico In the mediation. In so acting Mr. Carranza has dono nothing but sustain tho unlimited right of sovereignty of tho Mexican nation by vlrtuo of which It Iw longs only to her to constitute and or ganize herself. "lien.

H, Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his morganatic wife, the LINER CALIFORNIA HITS ROCK; 840 SOULS ABOARD ARE SAFE Accident Off Irish Const in Vuix May Result in Loss of Craft, IONtKy, Juno 28. The Anchor hint steamship California, from New- York for Glasgow by way of Iondonderry, with 840 passengers aboard, went aground In a detiHo fog to-day on the rocks of Tory Island, off the northwest ern coast of Ireland. Late despatches say that another liner Is standing hy and that the sea Is smooth. This des patch says that the passengers are In no Immediate danger and that It Is be lieved they can be transform! without great lllllculty to the other ship If the necessity arises. The California's bow was badly dam aged when she struck the rocks, the despatches say. Her forward holds aro lining rapidly. Two big rents In her hull I below the water line have been found. Her position on the rocks is regarded as ' dangerous. , As soon as she grounded tho Cali fornia's wireless sent out a call for help. inn wirviuKH nwuion hi ionuonacrry picked up the call and at once notified tho nav.vl authorities of tho port, who despatched six destroyers at full speed. Tho six vessels left tho harbor within a fow minutes, travelling ot full siwed In splto of tho fog. They aro expected to reach tho California by dawn. Tho course they will have to cover Is somo scventy-llvo miles. Tho latest word received by wireless from tho California was that tho pas sengers and crew wcro safe and that there was no panic on board either when tho ship grounded or nfterward. Tho ship standing by is tho Corinthian. Tho California, tho despatch says, fs lying In flvo fathoms of water forward and seven fathoms aft. There is only u light wind. Tho California left New York for Glasgow on June 20. K.irller messages from the California regarding tho snfety of thoso on Ismril wcro taken to mean that the passengers at least already had been transferred. Till seems to bo contradicted by later despatches, Tory Island, where tho accident oc curred. Is tho first light visible to ves sels on their way from America to Mo vllle, tho point of call for tho Anchor Lino's vessels, and tho last light seen by tho Scotchman as ho leaves for America.

Movllle, at tho head of Lough Koylr, Is the port of Londonderry, In Ponegal, Tory Island, whero tho California grounded, has u vcky coast and Is pro tected hy a lighthouse of considerable candle power, Tho roast Is rocky and therefore dangerous In foggy woathcr. AVIIIInm J. Hellly, passenger agent of the Anchor Line here, said last night that he had received no word directly Mill j. " Tory Island, where tne California struck, and Londonderry, from which port help was tent. from the liner's representatives at either Movllle or Glasgow, but that he had a despatch from London announcing that the California had signalled that she was fast on the rocks and had sent out a wireless call for help. Two gunboats bad been despatched from Londonderry to assist her and If she should be in danger to take off her passengers. Mr. Hellly said he had received In the dny a wireless message announcing that tho California was 175 miles west of Malln Head, the northernmost point of tho Irish coast. She grounded long Hfte'r that. Hhe wus due at Movllle about 11 o'clock last night. Mr. Itcllly said that Capt J., A. Coverley may have run Into a fog and got off his course. The existence of heavy fog would Indicate that there could not be much sea on and he hoped to hear some cheering news from tho liner to-day after the gunboats had arrlVed on the scene.

Emperor ASSERT ASSASSINATION WAS RESULT OF PRO-SERVIAN PLOT Belief tinnier in .Bosnian Capital Was in Revenue for I lie Seizure of That Country by Austria. OPKBOB &AYS, "HI Sveiial Culile Dttpitch 10 Tnc Scs. VIENNA, June 28. Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian throne, and his morganatic wife, the Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated this morning when paying their first official visit to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia. The killing, it is said, was the result of a concerted plan in which at least three men had a part. The plot, if it was a plot, is believed to have been the result of the anger of pro-Servian subjects of Austria in the Province of Bosnir, annexed by Austria in 1908, against the policy of the Archduke in the Balkans. Servian flags were flying in Sarajevo before the arrival of the royal party, and when the Bosnian diet met after the murders all except Servian deputies were in mourning. Two attempts were made against the royal couple. The firsit was the throwing of a bomb. This failed of its purpose but slightly injured two aids of the 'Archduke. A young ttudent then fired two shots, one striking the Duchess and' the other the Archduke. A third man had another bomb ready, but seeing the assassin's bullets were successful threw his bomb away. Th; fi st two men were arrested. When news of the assassinations reached the Emperor he ex claimed: "Horrib'.e! Horrible! I am sorry they spared me!" There is much concern over the possible effect of the tragedy on the health of the Emperor, who has been ill since early spring. The murders add another to the list of tragedies which have marked the life of Francis Joseph. The Emperor's own wife, the Empress Elizabeth, was killed by an assassin in 1898. His brother, Maximilien, for a short time Emperor of Mexico, was executed in that country. His only son died under mysterious and scandalous circumstances at Meyerling in 1889, and is generally believed to have been murdered. The heir to the throne is now Archduke Charles Francis Joseph, eldest son of Archduke Francis Ferdinand's younger brother, late Archduke Otto. The heir is now in his twenty-seventh year.
