Fletcher wer? witnesses before the committee. Senator Pall produced proof of his charges that the Mex ican government had deliberately aided in spreading Bolshevist prop aganda In the United States with the avowed Intent of overthrowing the American government. Ambassa dor Fletcher told the Senators how Mexican officials had obtained per jured evidence against William O. Jenkins, American consular agen*. who Is now Imprisoned in a peni tentiary at Puebla. Mexico. Yesterday afternoon Secretary Lan sing went before the committee and not only substantiated the charges made by Senator Fall, but produced a wealth of new material of as sur prising a character. jeaklas Still Held. / At the 8tate Department mean- j time, no reply had been received, from the Carranxa government and the latest Information was that | Jenkins was still a prisoner. The House. It was made plain by | Republican leaders, will support whatever action the Senate may ultimately take in the Mexican sit uation. Senator Fall cxpects to m*ke pub lic today a digest of the charges, together with the proofs, that he j made before the Senate Foreign j Relations Committee yesterday. He J believes the public should be in- j formed immediately of the gravity j of the entire situation, which is j temporarily clouded by ignorance of I the President's exact state of health. No attempt will be made until today by Senator Hitchcock to seek an ap pointment with the President. While Senator Fall is really chairman of the subcommittee he has permitted Sena tor Hitchcock, because of his standing t in the administration and his rela tions with the President, to obtain the appointment. If Senator Hitchcock does not report to the Senator from I New Mexico bv 10 o'clock this morn ing. however. Senator Fall will then proceed to attempt to negotiate the appointment himself. Action a Surprise. The decision of the Foreign Rela tions Committee to seek an audience with the President was a tremendous surprise to the Democrats. I?ng after both the committee and the Senate had adjourned. Senator Hitchcock, to gether with Senators Swanson. Hoke Smith and King, all Democrats, sat In the otherwise empty Senate cham ber discussing the situation. The way was paved for Senator Fall's resolution by the testimony given by Secretary Lansing. He was asked if he had seen the President and he replied in the negative. Senator Hitchcock Interposed at this point with the intent to show that the Secretary meant that he had not seen. the President on the Jenkins' case. This drew the following question from Senator Fall directed at the Sccre-1 tary: "Have you seen the President on the Mexican situation since his re turn from his Western trip?" "No. I have not." was the Secre- j tary's reply. Senator Fall thereupon made his I motion for the appointment of a sub committee to ask the President his opinion of the resolution he had In- i troduced. For a moment there was silence | from the Democratic Senators. Then , Senator Shields spoke. President "Too III." "The President has been a sick man J and any man who has been as sick j as he is reported to be." he asserted. It was said, "could not take a matter ; of this Importance under considera- | tion In a short interview. 1 don't i think we should act on It." The roll call on Senator Fall's I motion, though, was as follows: i (Yeas): Lodge. Johnson. New. Rorah, ! Moses and Fall. (Nays): Hitchcock. I Shields. Plttman. Swanson and Wil- j liams. Senator Fall first proposed that Sen- ] ators Lodge and Hitchcock compose j the subcommittee to wait upon the | President, but Senator Lodge asked j permission to name the subcommittee and chose Fall and Hitchcock. The subcommittee was instructed to see the President. If granted an audience, it will be the first time any Republican Senator has seen the President since he was taken ill. The subcommittee was also Instruct- , ed to report back the President's j views to the full committee. If it is impossible to obtain an | audience the report will contain i a statement along these lines, and If the Senators see the President and his condition is such that they feel he should not be burdened with an extended presentation of the Mexican I case, no effort will be made to ex- j plate matters to htm, but a report ???Bodying the vlewi of the two Sen ator* will be made to the full com mittee. Because of the Importance of the Mexican situation, the committee felt It should consult with the President. It was explained last (light that the Inability of the subcommittee to see the President and talk things' over with him would leave Concrete free to act within Its own discretion In the entire matter. Secretary Lansing, while before the Foreign Relations Committee, was un willing to (rive his entire approval to the resolution reouestlng the Presi dent to "disown" Carranta and break relations with the Mexican govern ment. He did not know whether or not he would be able to see the Presl dent on the matter. He also thought that the adoption of the resolution atMhls time might endanger the lives of the 10,000 odd American citizens who are now In Mexico. Tells or Evidence. Ambassador Fletcher was able to give the Senators a "close up" or Mexican justice. The State Depart ment. according to his story befor ? the committee, haa apparently re ceived the following authentic ver sion of how the "evidence"* was col lected against Consul Jenkins: A party of officials of the state of Puebla went to Jenkins' hacienda, which Is near the city of Puebla. and there gathered ten of his peon work ers in one room. The spokesmen of the Mexican of ficials then asked the peons If Mr. Jenkins was not at the hacienda sev eral days before with Federlco Cor dova. the bandit chiertain. who ab ducted him. "No." said the peons in unison, "he was not." "Sure?" questioned the offlcial. "Yes." said the peons. - ITsed New Method. Thereupon one of the workers was ' chosen from the group and led outside! the building His companions within' heard a single shot, and the officials I returned in a minute?but the tenth I peon was not with them. "Sow. then." said the spokesman.' addressing the other nine, "you are sure you did not see Jenkins here last i Monday with Cordova." "No. we did not." was the reply. Another peon was chosen, another: shot was tired?and then there were eight In the room. By this time the lines were begin-! nlng to waver, but the question again I drew a negative reply. A third worker was taken from the I room, and a third shot sounded?and ' then there were seven. Now then." said the returning! group of officials, "this is the last time I we are going to ask ydu whether ori not you raw Jenkins here last Mon day with the bandit Cordova." "Sure!" exclaimed the seven peons! in unison. "\ve all saw h.m. We're' positive cf it." i At"1 depositions were accord-I ingly taken down. Jenkins Is In jail on this kind of "evidence.?? Pending the visit of the subcom- I mittec to the President there will he. of course, no further action In' the Mexican situation.

[ The firemen quickly responded and tHey together with others at J traded by the blaze succeeded I in saving thlrty-flve automobiles, [trucks and pleasure cars stored on j the first floor together with the book* and some' office fixtures. . Soon the firemen were working oy the burned building and had rine streams of water playing on the structure. In less than an^hour after the fire started the roof and north and south walls caved in and the dense clouds of smcke coming from the building, which burned with rapidity, prevented the firemen from entering the building. j The second floor was used as a store ropm and the third floor for | automobiles and repair work and there was a large quantity of fur jniture stored on the fourth flor. I The building was owned by Will iam E. Moore and Philip E. Boyd, who also conducted the garage. Th# proprietors lost three new cars and Ave old ones on which they had no insurance. They only carried $12,000 Insurance on the building which is valutd at $35,000. During the fire several of the fire men were slightly injured, among them being: Chief K. W. Ogden, finder cut; John Edwards and John McCuen, hands frost bidden; George Clark, sprained wrist; Henry Beach, cut hand. Neighbors furnished coffee to Ihe firemen. The firemen worked until lu:30 o'clock on the blaze. In addition to the cars belonging to the company were six cars of tour ists who had put them in storage for the night, they being en route to North Carolina and Florida. A partial list of others who had cars destroyed follows: William Des mond, two; Mrs. George L. Simpson, Karl Wiley. Charles Henry Smith. C. H. Smith. Thomas Eddy. Alden Ches ser. Dr. Rozier Bayly.
