The only land 35res left the Government for direct communication with the United States ait those through Eagle Pass and ilaredn. (Bo- far as Indicated by Information available here, either from official or libel sources, the two campaigns begun by Carranza have been failures. His effort to attack the Sonora troops from the State of Chihuahua has been wrought to an end by the defection of every garrison In that State, and the expedition sent from the south through tfie State of Jalisco to check the south veard movement of rebels through the Mates of Sonora, SlnsJoa and Kayarlt hks not succeeded. 5J&- and Safety Our GwMMtoi First Mortgage Certificates are sate because ef: ReaiQft 3 The Lawyers MotteoJte Company limits Its outstsAdlnc loans to twenty times its capital and surplus, thereby assuring at all tiroes tt sufficient proportion of cattail back oMt fuarafltie.

These despatches carry the information that the sale of mixed German property In Guatemala, which was authorised by the Cabrera Government when tt de clared war, has been cancelled bythe new Government. A short thne before his downfall Ca brera cabled to Washington that German Influence wrb being strongly exerted ngatnat the sale of this property, ,ln which the Germans had combined with Mexican influences and with disgruntled Americans. Cabrera had incurred cer tain Latin American hostility, It Is un derstood, by his friendliness to the United State?.

Finlay said last night that he did not know upon what transaction the warrants were based. He said that when he heard that warrants had been sworn out he sent at attorney to Wash ington to confer with the Department of Justice. He added: "Some time ago George II. Finlay A Co. purchased a large amount of sugar which had previously been sold for ex port to Burope. When we purchased the sugar, paying a large profit to the Euro pean buyers, we thought we were doing a lood thing- for the country.

VICTORY HALL TO BE IN PERSHING SQUARE Drive for $20,000,000 Will Start November 11. of Woollen Mills. ' Passaic, N.

Though there, has been talk of some of the big mills clofllng down for various periods duo to tho gonernl uncertainty ot all conditions affecting the Industry, none of the manufacturers will admit having any such plan in mind at present. 1 1.

NEW YORK -x " vr L Our Method of Train Protection l - AN engineman's hand on the throttle will start a train running, AJL but if that train and all other trains of our system were not controlled in their starting, running and stopping, chaos would result. OUR method of safeguarding trains in operation is the result of years of patient labor by scientists who have devoted their lives to this art. No school or college teaches it. It can be learned only in the practical school of railroading. It has been developed until to-day its certainty of operation is assured under any weatherconditions, in all climates, at the Grand Central Terminal with its 2700 train-movements a day or on a single-track road with only a few trains in twenty-four hours. e TRAINS are controlled in their movement not by what the public sees semaphore arms or lights or a combination of bouVwhich are mechanical signals set so the engineman may read and "stop" or "proceed" with his train but by an invisible agency called the "track circuit" of which these signals are the visible expression. The rails of the roadway are so connected witkwires as to form a path for conducting electricity supplied by batteries to controlling devices known as relays. 1 FOR operating purposes the railroad is divided into "blocks" each having its signal., Each. block is controlled by this track circuit. The signals are operated and controlled through the track circuit relay, when interrupted by the wheels and axles of the cars passing over the tracks in a given block, thus automatically safe guarding the, train against interferenqe or collision with approaching or following trains! WHEN the tracks are clear of trains, the signal indicates ''proceed" as the flow, of electricity in the track circuit is uninterrupted. If me tracks-should be damaged by a break, a wash-out or other accident, the interrupted track circuit would set the signals at "stop," holding up all trains until repairs were made. The track circuit and its signals are supplemented by men and machinery the men to direct and operate, the machinery to control 'signals and switches. GURttainpr6tectionsystemalready represents an investment of several million dollars, and is being extended and improved wherever possible at considerable additional expenditure. Thus we endeavor to assure the safety of the lives and property entrusted to our care so far as modern science can do it. - , ' THE NEW YORK CENTRAL LINES l)irFOUft - LAKE ERIE &WESTEUN - MICHIGAN CENTRAL ' BOSTON ALBANY - TOLEDO & OHIO CENTRAL - PITTSBURGH fc-IAKE ERIE , NEW YORK CENTOALjAND-SUBSIDIARY LINES - &9sflL9sK
