Administration Criticised at
Party Conference for Weak
ness Along Border.
DANGER ADDED TO DAILY
Alarming Telegrams Convince Many
Senators of Both Parties 'That
War Lies Near.
Telegrams of such an alarming nature
from various points along the Mexican
boundary reached Republican Senators
yesterday that Minority Leader Gallinger.
of New Hampshire. issued a hurried call
for a party conference.
The conference wag attended by fully
one-half the Republican membership. The
whole Mexican question was discussed in
formally and an adjournment taken until
Monday pending definite information
from Senator Fall, now at El Paso. which
may enable the Republicans to adopt
some specific program.
The speeches were not of the firebrand
variety. Every purpose was expressed
to support the President in ma policy of
pursuing and capturing Villa. But it was
evident that unless information now
reaching Washington is proved untrust
worthy, a serious demand will be made
upon the administration for additional
protection of Americans along the bor
der, no matter at what cost.
The chief criticism of the administration
made by the Republican Senators was
that, now having sent a punitive expedi
tion after Villa. it appeared to be afraid
to take other steps to protect Americans
lest such astion should give offense to the
de facto govermnent of Mexico.
Watchful Waiting Disastrous.
This, the Republican Senators declared
to be another phase of "watchful wait
ing." which, if continued, would be far
more disastrous than the developments
growing out of the past three years of
Doubt was expressed concerning the ac
curacy of some of the press dispatches
and criticism made of the "sterilized" in
formation given out by the War Depart
The discussion disclosed that not only
many Republicans, but a number of
Democratic members of the Senate were
convinced that war with Mexico was not

Southern Society Members Hear In
teresting Account of Campaign
The hlief that the work of Aneri
can s in clearing Cuba and the Canal
Zone of yellow and malaria fever heralds
the eventual development of the vast
unoccupied area of the tropics, was ex
pressed last night by Brig. Gen. Will
ini C. Gorgas. in an address on "San
itation," before the Southern Society of
Washington at the New Willard.
Always avoiding even by inference the
fact that he almost alone was the mov
ing factor in the campaign that made
these tropical countries inhabitable for
the People of the north. G;en. Gorgas
gave an interesting description of the
work that was done in eliminating the
mosI uito. This insect, he declared. is
the principal carrier of the disease. Con
tinuing he said:
'The healthy Panama of today will
demonstrate that the white man and
woman can live in the tropics, and the
protection against disease in the torrid
zone is not so expensIve as protection
against the cold in the temperate zone.
'As a result of the work of making
th: health conditions in Cuba and Pan
ama suitable for the white laboreis. I
believe that we are on the eve of oc
cupying the enormous unoccupied ind
fertile regions now lying useless In the
tropics. Possibly not in our Cay - but
it will come.
