W. 0.'PLEADERS MUSQSSMEXICO 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 that policy. 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 ment. 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 far distant. SPEECH OF "CYCLONE" DAVIS IS CENSORED Texas Representative Agrees to Blue Pencil His Ulndelivcred Speech. Cuts Out "Cesspool" Talk. Representative "Cyclone" Dav is, of Texas. who had fallen into the bad graces of the House by printing in the Congressional Record remarks which resulted in the appointment of a censorship committee, yesterday dim posed of the incident by blue pencil ing his undelivered address. The observations of Mr. DaNis were alliterative combinations of such Words as "gutter snipe," "maggot," and even more striking terms. Rep resentative Madden, of Illinois, pro tested against making the Record a "cesspool" and a committee wAs ap pointed to censor the remarks. fRepresentative Davis appeared be fore the committee yesterday and agreed to censor the remarks himself.

DESCRIBES PREPARATION Southern Society Members Hear In teresting Account of Campaign Against Mosquito. 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.
