tonrthat the conrtlruHonallatB at Tampico
have "demanded That the Uetherlandi
withdraw marinea which had been landed
from a Dutch cruiser to protect oil In
tereeta owned by the nationals of that
' country. This was the first that "Wash

European -force at Tampico to protect
the oil fields.
Late yesterday evening there were evi-"dences-
that unfavorable development
had occurred, at Tampico, and that the
United States government was fearful
of a new embarrassment. 'It "was "not

dispatch-from Admiral Mayo was gUren

No information was given out In offi

The Dutch, next to the British, are
the largest European holders of ell

been co-operating closely with Great

KlpUng made one of his rare ap
pearances on the political platform here
today at a -big anti-home rule demon
stration andV.ttacked the government
for its efforts to pass the Irish measure.
KlpUng declared that the King and the
government were notSodependent of the
Irish vote, so the support of the na
tlonalists was bought with the home-l
rule bill, which he said "breaks the faith
of generations."
This measure," the author continued
"officially recognizee conspiracy and re
bellion. It subsidizes the forces of boy

and It. creates a stronghold In which all
these forces can work together.

-Cannot Stay in Colorado
President Declares State Has Not
Constitutional Right to Throw It
self Entirely on United States.
Presldent Wilson yesterday afternoon
served emphatic notice on Gov. E. M.
Amnions, of Colorado, that the govern
ment of the United States has no in
tention of keeping Federal troops in
definitely in the Colorado strike region.
Indignant over the reports from Denver
to the effect that the State legislature
was preparing to adjourn without act
ing on alii the measures designed to
remedy the Industrial troubles, the-President
sent the fol'oning telegram:
Leglakitnre SInst Act.
"Hon. T. M. Amnions,
'Executive Office.
"Dener. Colo.
"Am disturbed to hear of the probabil
ity .f the adjournment of jrqur legisla
ture and feel bound to remind jrou mac
my constitutional obligations with regard
to the.maIntena4ice.or-ojrder in. Colorado
are not to be indcunlteiy continued oy
the inaction of the State legislature. The
Federal forces arc there only until the
State of Colorado has time and oppor
tunlty to resume .sovereignty and control
in the matter. I cannot conceive that
the State is willing to forego her sov
ereignty or to throw herself entirely
upon-the government of the United
States, and I am ouite clear that she
has no constitutional right to do so
when it is within the power of her leg
islature to take effective action.
Apparent Failure of Session.
The present session of tne leg'slature
Is a special one convened by Gov. Am-
jnons for the purpese of enacting five
measures which he propjsed for the set
tlement of the difficulties between the
striking coal miners and the operators.
According to a report which reached the
President yesterday afternoon, only one
of the five measures had been finally act
ed upon, on iv hat looked to Lc the final
day of the special session. Allonlng for
the difference In time between Washtrc
ton and Denver It was thought possible
that the Prcsldcnt's'war-'Ing would reach
the Colorado Capital before the legisla
ture adjourned.
The single measure acted upon -provides
for a military bond issue for the main
tenance of the State militia. Two of the
administration bills, the State constabu
lary and the compulsory arbitration bills
have been defeated. The remaining two,
one of which provides for-the closing of
all saloons in districts where there are
industrial strikes, -and the other for- the
regulation of the sale or Importation of
firearms in strike areas, were pending In
conference committees carl yesterday.
The State senate, before the legislature
met yestreday, had unanimously adopted
a -resolution to adjourn' sine die at 6
o'clock last night "
Gov. Amnions Reply,
List night the President received
this message from Gov. Amnions;
"The 'President, Washington, D. C
"t regret exceedingly that sou have
been misinformed. The legislature has
Just passed an act which I have ap
proved providing for a bond Issue of
Jl.o6o.000 tor the purpose of paying
the Indebtedness 'which has been In
curred and which may be incurred in
suppressing Insurrection and defend
ing the State. As soon as these bonds
can be Issued these funds will be avail
able and this State can and will con
trol the situation. This Is the only
constitutional method of raising funds
immediate future.' In addition to
this act the legislature has enacted a
law permitting the governor to close
saloons in times of disorder, and also
a law prohibiting the carrying and dis
position or firearms n times -of disor
der: moreover a committee on media
tion on the, present strike has been
provided for and appointed.

-The dash between iSoIicitor'Folk. of the
Interstate Commerce Commission, and
Attorney General McReynolda, took on a
bitter ouUooktoday-wheiritrwaa learned
that the JJepartmeat'of JusUce has been
sending out anonymous press reports, at
tacking Fotk' and hfci worsr-in the Kew
Haven Investigation. These reports, it
la understood, probably will bring forth
a Congressional Investigation as to their
I C. C. Va In Amu.
Members of the Interstate Commerce
Commission are op in arms over what
has been done by the Department ot Jus
tice, ana It was ireeiy inumaiea in uic
Interstate Building today that severe
measures will be brought to make the
Attorney General relinquish his attacks.
That there la going to be one of the great
est fights in the history of the Democratic-party
was made certain today. -That
President Wilson will be brought Into it
Is also made plain. He either will have
to side with Folk or McReynolda before
the struggle between these two Is over.
This is the opinion of those who know
the Jnside of things.
The Interstate Commerce Commission,
in its entiretyhas taken a stand behind
Folk. The United States Senate has done
likewise, and at esterday"s Cabinet
meeting, the same condition of affairs
presented Itself In regard to the Presi
dent's attitude.
It now Is believed that behind' Folk's
activities there is a carefully concealed
plsn to enmesh those responsible for the
wrecking of the New Haven. It is be
lieved that he may halt'with the comple
tion of Mellen's testimony and a few
connecting links and demand indictments
based on that tesUmony.' either through
the Attorney General or his successor, if
McReynoIds refuses to proceed.
Mellen May Jfot Testify.
This view of th situation was given
credence today, when it was learned that
some of the biggest men for whom sub
poenas have been issued will not be
called to WashlngtonTuesday. It was
also said that Mellen may not take the
stand Tuesday, as was first thought, hut
that some of the minor witnesses will
be called, merely to corroborate Mellen's
alrtady given testimony.
There was a rumor afloat in Washing
ton icsterday that McReynoIds, the-'
roughly disgusted with the way things
have been breaking for him. has de
termined to cut off the Interstate Com
merce Commission by belated prosecu
tion of all the other New Haven mehiwlth
the exccpUon of Mellen.
McReynoIds, through one of his confi
dential agents, sent out word that be
would call a meeting of the entire Inter
state Commerce Commission next week
and lay before them his plan for- action.
He" wants them to keep off his ground
once he begins these criminal prosecutions.-
The Interstate Commerce Commission,
not getting the word djrect from Mc
ReynoIds. paid no attention to the sug
