phatic denial by Ciirrunza's representa

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
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
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 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

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
"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

"The policy of Mr. Carranza, who Is tho

obligate it by his nets or those of his duly
authorized repicsentatlves at Washington,
has been and always will bo that of

"And now that the name of It. C.
Pierce has been mentioned, I must say
In tho most emphatic manner that the In

solicited nor offered nor wouhl be ad

believe that the Mexicans would be shed
ding their blood to free themselves from
certain financial tyrannies In order to de

tyrannies whichever they be. Neither th"

ASSERT ASSASSINATION WAS
RESULT OF PRO-SERVIAN PLOT
Belief tinnier in .Bosnian Capital Was in Revenue for
I lie Seizure of That Country
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
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.
