chief. Provisional President Venuatlano
Jt Is known however that Villa Is hur

Requests sent to Villa for an expression
upon the statement Issued by Carranza In
Mexico City, In which the Provisional
President expressed the belief that peace
would soon be restored, brought no reply.
Political loaders throughout Mexico

GARRISON ORDERS TROOPS
TO REMAIN AT VERA CRUZ
Withdrawal of American Soldiers
Impossible at This Time.
WASHING-TON, Sept. 25.-Secretary of
War Garrison today cabled General
Funston at Vera Cruz that there was no
possibility of the withdrawal of American
troops within the next ten days. The
departure of the troops may be Indefinitely
postponed under pretext of civil and diplo
matic difficulties, pending the outcome of
the now revolt- Delay In completing
formalities for turning over by General
Funston of the port and customs collec
tions to a Constitutionalist representative
will operate, It was said, to postpone de
parture of the troops. Isolation of Vera
Cruz from Mexico City by the cutting ot
railway and wire communication ore also
expected to delay the evacuation.
Seven transports were today loading
army supplies at Vera Cruz In anticipation
of early surrender of tho city, however.
Complications viewed with some appre
hension in Administration circles were
prospective urgent demands by Carranza
lor immediate departure of the Ameri
cans and a protest from Villa against
Blvlng the port to any Carranza agent.
This would present a difficult and dllcate
Problem to the Presldcnt-almost a choice

J-J,artm.;nt Details of the situation hve
Bipartisan deals between the Old
Guard Democrats and tho Republican
Organization In Philadelphia through a
communion of Interests In the "liquor
ring" are expected to bo brought to
light before the Senato Committee on
Privileges and Elections when that
committee meets In Washington today
to dccldo upon an investigation of Sen
ator Penrose's primary campaign "slush
Itcorganlzcrs point out that tho Old
Guurd Democratic City Committee, which
frequently has been a party to biparti
san deals, is bound to the Republican
Organization and the liquor Interests by
financial and marriage ties through Its
chairman, D, Gordon Bromley.
Bromley Is secretary und treasurer of
the Continental Brewing Company, at
21st street nnd Washington avenue.
John Gardiner, president of the brew
ery. Js his brother-in-law. Gardiner
lives at 1800 Pine street, in tho 17th
division of tho Seventh Ward, nnd was
enrolled at the last election as a Re
publican. Gardiner, according to reports, has
been called to appear as a witness be
fore the Senate Committee as the presi
dent of tho Pennsylvania Brewers' As
sociation. The reports state that the
committee has also called Charles F.
Ettla who manages the mahogany-furnished
offices of the Pennsylvania Brew
ers' Association at 1501 Land Title Build
ing, and Neil Bonner, of 22d and Car
penter streets, president of the Penn
sylvania Federation of Liquor Dealers.
Bonner was associated with tho old
Donnelly-Ryan organization 10 years
ago, and later became an Independent
Democrat. Last spring he returned to
the Old Guard fold, Immediately after
tho primaries ho announced that he
was a Republican, and that he would
support Senator Penrose and the Re
publican ticket. Ettla has always beer,
a "liquor man" In politics.
It has been throusn the Influence of
Bromley, Us chairman, and his connec
tions with a Republican, n "llnuor mnn-
and a former Democrat, that the Demo
cratlc City Committee has obeyed the
dictates of tho liquor Interests by re
fusing to support tho Democratic party
of the State in Its local option pledge.
Bromley and Vance C. McCormlck. the
Democratic candidate for Governor on
the platform which the organization
headed by Bromley refused to Indorse,
were delegates to the last Democratic
National Convention and voted together
for President Wilson. They both worked
to swing Pennsylvania In line for Wil
son. When McCormlck became a candidate,
for Governor, however, on a platform of
which local option was a principal plank,
Bromley broke wt' McCormlck because
of his financial nnd other connections
with the brewery interests, and tho Dem
ocratlc City Committee, under Bromley's
leadership, failed to Indorse the Demo
cratlc State platform because It favored
Political leaders who are watching the
effort being made for a Senato Investi
gation of Senator Penrose's campaign
fund3, today recalled Bromley's views on
the liquor question, expressed by the
Democratic City Committee chairman
three weeks after the primary election.
At that time Bromley, In answer to a
question regarding the probable attitude
of the City Committee toward the Demo
cratic State platform, called local option
"an attack upon personal liberty." He
aid that he did not know the views of
the members of the Democratic City
Committee, but that this was his personal

President Says Such Action
Would Take Advantage
of Present Extraordinary
Situation for Personal Gain
WASHINGTON, Sept. 2J.-Prcsldent
Wilson today declined to allow tho Dem
ocrats of New Jersey to Indorse him for
a second term.
Ho believed that such an indorsement
might look as If he were "taking advan
tage of the extraordinary situation now
existing to gain some personal advantage
through such an expression of confidence
He directed his secretary, J. P. Tumulty,
to write a letter to Edward E. Grosscup,
State Treasurer of New Jersey, outlining
his views on the matter.
The letter says:
"Mv Dear Oroticup:
"You were generous enough to consult
mo as to whether tho Democrats of New
Jersey should at this time endorse tho
President for a. second term. I had a talk
with the President about It and ho deeply
appreciates tho generosity of tho sugges
tion, but New Jersey Is his own state,
tho men who would net In this matter
aro his own personal friends, and he
feels that It might seem as If he wero
taking advantago of the extraordinary
situation now existing to gain some per
sonal advantngo through such an ex
pression of confidence by them.
"This would be Inconsistent with his
whole thought and spirit, and he shrinks
from It as from something that would
embarrass rather than help him.
"He feels confident that you will know
the spirit in which he says this, and that
In urging the Democrats of New Jersey
not to do this he Is not nhntlno- In h.
least his deep appreciation.
"Very sincerely yours.

The firing was terrific. A night at

Zeppelin airships are raiding coast

was regarded as a preliminary move
to an air attack on British towns.
