The Senator followed up his complaint
by films two recommendations for suc
cessors to the Republicans. FVir the tower
district of Manhattan ho recommended
Mycr Greenburir, a lawyer In active prac
tice In New Yo:l since 1895 and closely
asscx'lnted with leadlnx Jewish societies,
as well as beliiK nctlve In Democratic
politics. For the other place the Senator
recommended A. Welles Stump of West
Virginia, who has practised law In New
York city since 1897. Mr. Htump Is active
111 the German societies of New York and
has contributed time and money to Demo
cratic politics.
The announcement of the recommenda
tions contains n nulet dig nt Secretary Mc
Adoo, who turned down Senator Martlne
In thn western district of New dcrsoy he

hart ndopted the policy of recommending
lawyers ns collectors of Internal revenue
because of the legal questions involved In
the construction of the Income tas law
and war revenuo measure. Senator O'Oor
man naively suggests:
"The reason two lawyers were selected
to he r commended for these appoint

cussd nil over town an im unusually
lively si-rap, but no armUs were nimle,
nnrl I hiw aortie of this hjiitip littneh nut
the following night with different crowds
of olllcers shooting up other places.
Das. night 1 was eating late supper In
a restaurant and not thinking of trouble.
Suddenly the Vllllstas rushed In like a
whirlwind, llred about thirty shots nt
different objects that attracted their at
tention nnd went out again. Tho thing
passed no quickly that I think no person
arose rrom me tame wnere tie was sit
ting. The Spanish proprietors of the
restaurant, who lost about 100 ptvtos
worth of property as a result of the
tiring, very undiplomatically shut and
barrel the doors of tllv restaurant as soon
ns the olllcers were outsldt.
The slamming of tho door behind them
enr.igtd them, and they returned to the
nttuek. From shout 1 A.M. until 3:30
A M we were dodging bullets In the
restaurant, ns the Vllllstas from without
llred through the doors with their brand
new Colt's nutovnatlc pistols, emptying
their gun- nnd reloading until all their
ammunition was gone. The bullets were
i shipping all over the testaurant, and there
were many women Inwlde.
Only two men were wounded as a
result, nnd their Injuries were slight, but
the Vllllstas, who knew there weiH women
I" I'1'"'''. w"'e shooting at all angles,
"u It was strange there was not more
harm done. We on the Inside telephoneI
to the Inspector-General of Poilco and
to the commandant of the city forces,
a-klng to he rescued, but they told us
there were no forces available to send
to our rcl.ef, nnd we had to wnlt until the
besiegers withdrew of their own accord.

The Curnnclstas while they were here
were comparatively little addicted to this
favorite sport of thn Vllllstas. Greed
was their greatest vice, nnd nlmost every
man of them, from the highest to the
lowest, was bent upon getting together

n" pnnMble during their stay here,
J ;' that they ""ked the town be-
fore they left It would not be an exsggera
Their fifty-odd long trains were lo.icKd
with every conceivable kind of spoil when
they fled for Vera Cruz huge mirrors,
pianos, automobiles, coaches, tapestries,
clothes everything In fact. I Imagine a
retieat of the Huns or the Vandals would
be the same.
The Cnrranclstns also were prett dem
agogues, and their anarchistic preachings
against the rich, the Church and every
thing of th" established order of things
brought on strikes, hunger and labor dis
turbances which kept everything topsy
turvy. There was a strong current of
anti-foreign feeling running through all
the Carranclstaa' speeches and proclmn
t.ons. Their cry was that the foreigner had
grown fat at the expense of the misery
of the Mexican workman ever since Por
flrlo Diaz's time, and that It was only
fair there should be a turnabout
Gov Herlberto .Tara of the Federal Dis
trict was the most dangerous of their
demagogues. Under his protection there
was established a branch of the Casa del
Obrero Mondial, which Is the Spanish
speaking 1. W. W. The Ministry of Fo
niento also protected the organization,
which still exists here under the leader
ship of pure red anarchlstu. and I have
heard the Carranclsta authorities make
anarchistic speeches to tho crowds of
laborers of nil the unions belong'ng so
tho nssnrlntion. These would chei"- nnd
there would b cries of dynamite for the
rich and the like.
Under the Vllllstas the Casa del Obrero
has lost Prestige, ns their higher officials
) were astute enough to detect the danger
I of a massacre nnd withdraw their sup
port. For this reason all the labor union
people are Carranclstas.
I think practically all foielgners nnd
most of the well to do Mexicans are con
servative In tholr spirit, und want to see
pence made here with ns few changes ns
possible fiom tho time of Porflrlo Diaz,
when every one enjoyed protevtlon as to
hU life nnd property.
In other words, the foreigners and the
rlrh are "reaciionarlos," as the Carran
clstas and the Vllllstas say. These peo
ple as a rule consider tho Vlllista regime
preferable to that of the Carranclstas, or
rather less ruinous, without wasting any
love on eltlu r. The re.imn hi thnt the
Vlllista higher officials are generally be
lieved to be less dishonest, less "Innovat
ing" and more capable In their adminis
tration than the Carranclstas.
They show their superiority In every
thing except In maintaining order on tho
trecta at . night. They could do that.
most people think, If they wanted to, but
they do not. foreigners or natives who
stay at homo at night are not In much
danger fiom them either ns to their lives
or their property.

Some say that Villa learned of this'

to get hie forces ready to fight the c-on-1

of the conflict depends upon whether Gen,
Felipe Angele remains faithful to Villa,
whose right arm he has been hitherto, or
whether Angeles casts hl.s lot with tho
convention. I

men and forty cannon, It Is said Villa
Is credited with about 25,000 men of li...

that his short regime gave protection to

There Is some talk of Villa's making
a new republlo out of the State of Chi
