Declares His Late Military
Chief Friendly to the "Old
Regime" Peace Pros
pects Less Hopeful.
MEXICO CITY, Oct. &S.-A long proc
lamation Issued by First Chief Venus
tlano Cnrinnaa, vigorously attacking
General Francisco Villa, was telegraphed
throughout the republic today. This
proclamation Is regarded as nil Ultl
" matum from General Cnrrnnza to his
erstwhile commander-in-chief.
General Cnrrnnza accused Villa of lin
ing up with the old regime fostered by
President Pnrflrlo Pdaz The final sen
tence of the proclamation Is:
"If It were not notoriously well known
t'nt for some time past Villa has ex
hibited a spirit of conciliation toward
the conservative elements of the old
regime. Including military men and ex
Federals headed by Felipe Angeles, It
would only be necessary to point to his
Insistent desire to Inaugurate a Consti
tutionalist rcglmo before the revolution
can Implant the sweeping reforms which
the nation demands "
It begins to look more and more as
though the national pence convention at
Aguascullcntes will fall of Its purpose.

Political Careers Lav
Same Lines Long Before
They Rose to Present Offi
cial Positions.
Exposures of the operations of Edward
Hlgelow, Pennsylvania Commissioner of
Highways, have brought to light the In
teresting story of the Intimate political
relations of the Highway Commissioner,
Ilobert McAfee, Secretary of Common
wealth, nnd Holes Penrose, which began
years before any one of the trio held his
present olllclal position.
Commissioner Dlgclow llrst came before
public notice late In tho !'s as Director
of Public Works In Pittsburgh. At the
same time McAfee was Director of Public
Works In Allegheny, this being before the
two titles consolidated. At this time, tho
late Chris Magec nnd William llinn. the
present Washington party leader, were
the undisputed bosses of the Pittsburgh
ncpubllcnn machine, the like of which
has never been seen since In Pennsyl
vania. I'llnn then as now was tho leading
member of a contracting firm. His firm
was getting tho big end of tho street
paving and other city work. The only
material that seemed good enough for
paving Pittsburgh streets was a certain '
stone called "Llgonier block." obtainable i
exclusively from PUnn's quarries About
this time a dispute arose over spccitlca-
tlons In city contracts, It !a said, and (
Hlgelow was forced from his position as
Director of the Depnitment of Public I
Works. Ills removal received the unqunl-
meu approval oi r linn, nnu .vingce ouer
ing no opposition although he and Blge
low were cousins.
A battle royal then began, for Blge
low had a brother Tom, who had millions
of money nnd a proportionate supply of
family lojilty Magee died about this
time, leaving Fllnn in sole control of the
' machine " Tom Blgelow promptly gave
up all other business and devoted himself
to the political annihilation of Fllnn.
Quay and Penrose gave assistance and
the Legislature of 1601 passed the famous
"Pittsburgh Ripper Bill." by which the
ofllcc of Mayor was abolished and a new
executive ofllco of recorder created In
Its stead with Increasing powers. Gover
nor Stone appointed a recorder satisfac
tory to the antl-FHnn element and Fllnn's
management of the municipality of Pitts
burgh and his control of the Republican
"machine" In that part of the State ter
minated. The next Legislature conveniently nbol
Ished the otllce of recorder and created
again the ofllco of Mayor. The people of
Pittsburgh did not opposo this Jugglery,
since to get rid of the Pllnn machine was
worth almost nny price to them
Edward M. Hlgelow, tno man who was
later to become Highway Commissioner
for the State, was thus revenged, al
though his brother Tom. who had m-ide
this come-back posslhle, died shortly
afterward. It was In working out this
political coup that Blgelow became so
closely nllled with McAfee and the Oliver
McAfee himself owes his political posl
tlon almost entirely to Oliver. Before get
ting Into public life. McAfee wn.s superin
tendent of one of the mills of the Oliver
Iron nnd Steel Compnnv, t n owned by
the Oliver family. Throu the Oliver
control of political factors in Allegheny in
tho 50s, McAfee became Director of Public
Safety In the city of Allegheny and later
Director of Public Works.
McAfee thUH became the active repre
sentative of the Olivers not only In loral
politics, but In the councils of the Re
publican Statfl Organization, then domi
nated by Matthew Stanley Quay In April,
I6KJ. Governor Pennypacker appointed Mc
Afee Slate Banking Commissioner, and he
has held a State nfllre over since. After
serving for two years as the head of the
State Banking Department, McAfee, in
July. 1005. was appointed by Governor
Pennypacker as Secretary of the Com
monwealth. About this time Senator Quay died and
the leadership of the Republican State
machine passed Into tho hands of Pen
rose, but this did not alter the political
Importance of McAfee. He was reappoint
ed Secretary of the Commonwealth by
both Governor Stuart and Governor
Toner Thus h has bn at the head of
this department for seven and a half
year. and under three Governors
During all these year McAfee haB been
recognized as the main representative, of
the "Organization" at the "front " That
Is to say, It has len his business to
look particularly to the solution of ad
ministration problems that have involved
political results Thus he has come to be
known on Capitol Hill by such titles ns
"The ERrl," "The Premier," "The Chief
of Staff." etc.
It Is a matter of common knowledge
that all thrj of the Governors under
whon he has served as Secretary of the
Commonwealth have consulted his Judg
ment regarding many subjects of im
portance Since Penrose took the party
leadership, ami for so mo time before
that, there probably has never been a
consultation of State leaders that has not
Included McAfee. Ho Is credited with
bringing out John K Tener, and probably
had more to do with Toner's nomination
than any other man Earlier than this,
McAfee had much to do with the se
lection of Oliver for the t'nlted States
Senate to succeed Philander C. Knox
when the latter resigned to become At
torney General of the United States
Allied with McAfee and Oliver, who
were working in with the Penrose-Mc-Nlchnl
Interests in the eastern end of
the State, Blgelow was the logical choice
as Highway Commissioner It was Blge
low who had created tho Pittsburgh Dark
Hstem, and at the time his appointment
wns recommended he was In charge of
the construction of several hundred mile
of highways In Allegheny County Strange
to say. this highway Improvement was
made possible by a special county bond
Issue, the necessary legislation for which
was Introduced In the Legislature by the
more or less effectively suppressed Wil
liam Fllnn
The appointment of Blgelow followed
the passage by the Legislature of an act
reorganizing the Highway Department,
greatly enlarging its scope and authoriz
ing a small army of salaried positions and
opening the way for endless contracts
With Blgelow at the head of the organi
zation, Penrose was confident that a great
political stroke In strengthening his own
position had been accompl'shed. The ac.
tlvity of Blgelow on his behalf has proved
that his belief was Juatlriad
In 1913, at the last session of the Legls
lature. when the antl-Organlzatlon ele
ment in the State Senate attempted to
prevent the confirmation of the appoint
ment of Blgelow, administration pressure
was exerted to the limit. It was "Pre
mier" McAfee who undertook to work
out the problem, and although it took four
months, as usual, he was successful The
appointment waa reported out of commit
ted and confirmed, and one of tha si rone.

when he declared to the BOOO who throng
ed the square in front of the Allen House,
that tho election of Penrose "would put
Pennsylvania black on tho map."
Several hundred boy scouts and school
girls who nre taking part In Institute
work greeted tho Colonel when he ar
rived at tho Allen Houso at 10:00. They
formed a lano from his nutomoblle nnd
up tho stairs, nnd when ho nppenred on
tho balcony to speak they sang "America''
and "The Star Spangled Banner."
When Mrs. Plnchot stepped on to the
balcony tho crowd yelled "Hero comes tho
bride," and the band played a wedding
"Every man who voted for mo twb
years ago and Is not ashamed of It owes
It to himself to vote for Plnchot this
year." said Roosevelt to tho Allentown
throng "Plnchot was my right-hand man
while I was President, and there Is not
one of my principles that ho docs not
stand for. We nre fighting for the same
principles against the samo foes. Tho
prlmo Issuo is to beat Penrose, and tho
only man to bent him Is Plnchot."
Palmer was first mentioned by Roose
velt when tho train reached Lansford,
20 minutes late. The crowd thero num
bered 00.
"I want to say to you Democrats wo
want to smash tho Penrose machine In
tho State," said the Colonel. "Love him
but hate Ponrosc. nnd remember that a
vote for Palmer Is half a voto for Pen
rose." Fully 3000 persons met tho train at
Tnmaqua. Tho Colonel said to them:
"I am here because Pennsylvania Is
this year fighting tho most Important
fight In tho Union. On one side Is Pen
rose, who typllles nil that Is worst and
basest In our political life, the tool of
the privileged Interests, against tho
