In this latter action, directed against hill 213, the foVees under command of : the Kaiser's son followed through, af ter intense cannonade ?with heavy guns. ?nd the explosion of two mines directly under the parapets of the French ad vanced trenches on the slopes of the hill. Two attacks by massed forces resulted in the Germans gaining a tem porary foothold in one of the French trenches, from which they later were expelled by a French counterattack. For three days successively the Ger- | tnan forces here have been beaten back j jn their attempts to drive in an open- i jug wedge to reach the outfr works of j The Verdun fortifications, but their at- | tacks have never ceased. Constant j '.bombardment by artillery has had the effect of keeping down French often-' .slve endeavors, and maintaining the '.crown prince's forces in their dominant ( offensive role. ~ The steadiness with which the ; French have met the attacks and In- j variably hurled back their assailants, j evidences, according to military ob servers here, the preparedness of the i French army to continue their wearing- I down process and keep the Germans ! from their goal on tjjjs section of the battle front. ... .

An appeal was taken, filed for the J defendants as paupers. Mrs. Warren stood erect until the words fixing the date were uttered; then, with a quick, nervous jerk, sank into her chair, drooping for a minute and then resuming apparent calmness. In the event Mrs. Warren Is electro cuted, she will be the first woman to go to the chair in this State; it is said, the second woman ever to pay the death penalty. Warren was missed from his home 1 here after August 18 of last year, and his body was found in Muddy Creek. Forsytlie County, last April.

PROMINENT MEXICAN BITTER TOWARD WILSON Soto y Gania Refers to United States as "Conglomeration of Ad venturers." AMERICAN NOTE CRITICIZED Minutes of Secret Session of Con vention of Revolutionary Leaders Given Out by Arthur J. JJaldwin, AVIio Received Copy From Friend. [Spcctal to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.] ALBANY, N. Y., August 7.?Minutes 'of the secret session of the convention of revolutionary leaders held In Mexico City to discuss the Moxlcan noto of President Wilson were given to-day by Arthur J. Baldwin, an eminent dele gate to the Constitutional Convention. "Qucvndo, who was Vice-President 1 of Mexico, presided at the secret ses sion. Soto y Gama was the principal speakrr. He characterized the Ameri can note as tho work 'of a clown, who has never been able to cope with any condition.' He referred to the United States as a 'conglomeration of adven- I turers.' " The report of that speech contains the following quotations: "The American note Is the work of the Clentlflcos and the reactionaries who liavo sold* their properties to the magnates of the United States who are influential In the trusts, and, there fore, In politics. These Influential Americans who have purchased prop erties from the Porfistas, Huertistas, Clericals anrl Clentlflcos, have man- | aged to prevail upon President Wilson j to sign that note, which has not the J usual tone of tho White House. "Tho American agent, 'Duval West, | when he was In tho south, intimated that General Carranza had offered Sllll- j man and himself several million pesos j and very productive concessions If they I would make a report to the President! favorable to the Carranrlstas. x "General Zapata and the Indomitable Surlanos refused to give West a single cent. So ho became Indignant against I the Zapatistas and allied himself with the miserable bandit foreigners who' hypocritically pretended to do charity, j calling ?themselves the 'International J Benevolent Society.' "From the understanding had be- j tween the venal West and the adven-i turous Jews of the International com-' mlttee resulted the report, which will j be an eternal insult and perennial In-! famy to our revolutionists who are fcx-l posing their lives on the battle fleld,1 lighting against reaction, clericalism | and for our ideas which are set forth j in a free democratic Parliament. "Stupendous calumnies and numer ous Infamies are contained In reports by agents of the Washington govern ment. It is stated that the revolu tionists are to blame for the famine of the neutral population of the caplt&l? that population which n-o not yet been punished or expurged of its crimes, Iniquities and lownesa. "In this accursed report, the for eigners, Americans especially, stated that from Carranza and Obregon to Zapata and Balafox, paselng over Villa, Angeles and Gonzales Garza, the revolutionists were no more than bandits and criminals of the worst kind. "These foreigners deserve that ar ticle 33 of the constitution of depor tation be applied to them, and if we really wish to be revolutionists and patriots we should give that bigoted, lll-lntentloned, unsuccessful professor of Princeton a severe lesson. The compilers of this report should be hanged from our legendary cypress tpees In Chapultepec. "We should not be scared by this \ ridiculous and childish American note, j which, like all that Wilson does, is nothing but tfords, words, words. "The United States must be on its guard for sooner or later they will be dragged into a war with Japan. For this reason, even should he desire, Wil son will never intervene in Mexico. Therefore the note is ridiculous and meaningless. "I hope the Yankees will lnterveno in Mexico. It would spell their ruin. It would be the undoing of the con glomeration of adventurers called the United States. They would lose the Philippines, the ' Panama Canal, Ha waiian Islands, and possibly San Fran cisco, Los Angeles and Florida. "Let us look into the matter in its true light.
