After the American sailors and ma rines were landed at Vera Cruz. Mex., yesterday, one of the first to fall from a Mexican bullet was a Washington boy. Edward A. Gisburne, a wireless operator, on the dreadnought Florida, who was seriously wounded. He is an orphan, and before he went into the navy he had lived in this city with his grandfather. John R. Gisburne of 1932 17th street northwest. The lad is a product of the Washington public schools, having graduated from Techni cal High School in 1010. He was born in Providence, R I twenty-one years ago. and at the age of five lost his parents, who died within a few months of each other. He then cam* to Washington to live with his grandparents, entering the Washington uradt'd schools. He was a hard-working ? student and popular among his class- j mates. He has been interested in elec tricity since boyhood and this was de veloped during his term at Technical. After his graduation the young man went to Boston to work for an electrical EDWARD A. GISBURNE. tCUnedinet photo.) concern, later entering the Boston navy yard In a civilian capacity, and while serving there enlisted. His first assignment in the navy was as signal boy on the then flagship of Admiral Badger, the Wyoming. Later he went to the supply ship Culgoa. and about three months ago went to the Florida. He is considered among the best of the wire.ess operators in the service. LITTLE ACTIVITY SEEN AT MARINE BARRACKS At the marine barracks, on the lower end of 8th street southeast, and at the leadquarters of the marine battalion sta oned at the navy-yard there were today io signs that anything out of the or dinary was going on, in spite of the fact that forty-seven men from the barracks and twenty-three from the navy yard will leave here, under the command of First Lieut. Wiegman, early tomorrow for Philadelphia to go aboard the steam ship Moro Castle, which is to take them to Mexico. These men are to form the 21st Company of the 3d Marine Regi ment. Where they will land in Mexico they "do not know and do not care," to quote a member of the detail. "All we want to do is to get where something will be doing." While there were no surface indica tions that anything out of the ordinary i was in progress, at both the marine j barracks and the navy yard, the mer are i busily engaged In packing up and making ready to leave and the men picked for active duty are looked upon with envy by those who were not fortunate enough to be selected. Stay-at-Home Near to Tears. One young marine who was picked to go to Mexico failed to satisfy the medical officers that he was in proper physical condition was almost in tears over his failure to pass his physical ex amination and the fact that he had | to stay home. There is a strong rumor among the marines that another regi ment of their branch of the service is to be made up at once for duty in Mex ico. and all the marines stationed here j are hopeful that they will get in it. The men all desire active service and are anxiously waiting an opportunity to go to the front. No orders to indicate that any of the four companies of engineers stationed at Washington barracks would shortly be sent to the front have been re ceived there, but orders maj* come at any time, the men say. Two com panies of the engineer battalion are at the rifle range over in Virginia and another party is employed in engineer work between this city and Baltimore. Orders are out for another company to to the Virginia range for target practice, but it was stated at the bar racks this morning that should orders come the engineer battalion could be made ready to start In twenty-four I hours, by the time transportation could I be arranged for them. j Abe Martin Says: Tell Binkley grew suddenly pale at a little social gatherin' last night an' Dr. Mopps wuz called. He had four jacks. Ever' man has his price, but th' tag is often turned the wrong way. LOADING TRANSPORT HANCOCK WITH WAR MUNITIONS. ? t loaded with munitions of war. In addition to the 000 marines who went aboard the vessel, plenty of ammunition for emergencies was included in the cargo, and several light rapid-fire guns, generally used to reinforce landing parties, were hoisted aboard. A scene of hustle, without the least confusion, is the one which occurred at New Orleans a few days ago, when the transport Hancock, which left the New Orleans naval station at daybreak April 15 for Tampico, was being SENATE, BY 72 TO 13, SUPPORTS PRESIDENT IN HIS MEXICAN POLICY Adopts Resolution Justifying tion After Eliminating Name , of Huerta. His Ac The Senate adopted the Mexican resolution, as amended by the foreign relations committee, at 3 :22 o'clock this morning. The final vote came after hours of impassioned debate. All efforts to amend the resolution were defeated, the democrats standing solidly to gether in favor of the committee report, which was understood to be acceptable to President Wilson. The scene in the Senate chamber was impressive, and not since the stirring days of the Spanish war has there been such intense excitement as prevailed there last night and this morning. In rapid succession, when the debate was finally concluded, amendments offered by Senators Lodge, Gallinger, Poindexter, La Follette and Works were voted down. Then came the vote on the resolution "justifying" the President's action toward Mexico. It was adopted by 72 to 13, the thirteen negative votes being cast by republicans, who insisted that they opposed the resolution because the resolution did not set forth to the world that the basis for armed intervention in Mexico was more than the Tampico incident. Eliminates Name of Huerta. As adopted, the measure is a substitute reported by the Senate foreign relations committee for the resolution adopted by the House Monday. It eliminates the name of Victorian? Huerta. Adminis tration leaders are confident that the House will accept the substitute virtually without debate. To be ready for an im mediate conference, however, Senators Shively, Clarke of Arkansas and Lodge were appointed to serve as conferees in the event the House refuses to accept the substitute. On the final vote the following voted fpr the resolution: Democrats?Ashurst, Bankhead, Bryan, Chilton. Clarke <Ark.), Fletcher, Gore, Hitchcock. Hollis. Hughes, James John son. Kern. 1-ane, l.ea (Tenn.i, Lee (Maryland), Lewis, Martin. Martme, Newlands, O'Gorman, Overman, Owen, Pittman, Pomerene. Ransdeli, Reed, Robinson, Saulsbury, Shafroth, Sheppard, Shields. Shively.

On the Lodge substitute the vote fol lowed party lines closely, the republicans supporting the Lodge proposal and the democrats voting against it. .The only departures from this rule were Senators Bristow and La Follette, who voted with the democrats and against the substi tute. Both of these senators voted against the final resolution and against all proportions which looked to the perfec tion of the resolution in accordance with the administration plans. The substitute as adopted by the Sen ate follows: "In view of the facts presented by the President of the United States In his ad dress delivered to Congress in joint ses sion on the 3>th day of April, 1914, in re gard to certain affronts and indignities committed against the United States in Mexico, be It "Resolved, That the President is justi fied in the employment of the armed forces of the United States to enforce his demands for unequivocal amends for the affronts and indignity committed against the United States; be it further "Resolved. That the United States dis claims any hostility to the Mexican peo ple or any purpose to make war upon them." Lodge Resolution Rejectee. The Senate, by a vote of 47 to 35, re jected the substitute Mexican resolution proposed by Senator Lodge. It would have based the "justification" of the use of force in Mexico upon the general con ditions there instead of upon the Tampico incident alone. An amendment proposed by Senator Ga'linger, "justifying the President in the use of force to protect American citizens in Mexico." as well as to demand repara tion for the Tampico incident, was de feated, 43 to 40. An amendment by Senator La Follette, to provide that after the "subjugation" of Mexico the United States should re tire from that country, leaving Mexico and "every portion of it to its own peo ple." was voted down, 44 to 39. Through the long hours of the night the galleries remained crowded. Hun dreds of persons were turned away, un able to find seats in the galleries. As midnight approached, many women in handsome evening gowns took seats in the card galleries and remained until the resolution was adopted. The assault upon the resolution as pre sented by the committee was led by j Senator Root of New York, who in a dramatic and impressive address begged the Senate to place in the resolution some further justification for war than the Tampico incident. Practically the entire membership of the cabinet is in the Senate tonight. Sec retaries Bryan, Garrison, McAdoo, Dan iels, Postmaster General Burleson and Secretary Lane were on the floor or in 1 the galleries. ! A conference was held between Secre taries Bryan, Garrison, Daniels and Sec retaries Tumulty and democratic leaders Senator Root Appeals to Reason. | "We learn tonight that Vera Cruz has fallen, that four American marines lie dead, that. twenty-one lie suffering from wounds," said Senator Root. "Is there nothing else but this dispute of the number of guns?the form of ceremony of a salute to justify the sacrifice of the American lives? "Deeply as the President desires to limit the scope of his action to the mainte nance of peace, all history suggests that onces lighted the fires of war cannot be quenched at will. It is war in its es sence that we are to vote to justify to night. What are the result of these in cidents no man can tell. Men will die men dear to us will die?homes will be desolate. American children will go through life fatherless because of the action we will take tonight, and when they turn back to the page to find why their fathers died, are they to find that it was about the number of guns or the form of salute? "Ah, Mr. President," he said in a voice that sank almost to a whisper, and the galleries leaned forward breathlessly to hear. ' the capture of Vera Cruz, the death of four American marines, the wounds and the suffering of those who live there tonight, de mand something more, far more, than a formal insult, for justification. The re citals of the substitue preamble are weak in the face of death and suffer ing in Vera Crus tonight. "The substitute preamble is weak but it gives formal, adequate grounds, for the great formidable movement of the great naval and military power of this government. Tt srives the justifi cation that is needed." Fight at Vera Cruz Discussed. Reports of the engagement at Vera Cruz had reached the Capitol when the Senate resumed its session at 8 o'clock and became the text of the talk, men tioned in hushed voices, and greeted with a solemn silence throughout the Senate chamber packed to suffocation. As the shuttle of debate was thrown back and forth a full quorum of the House of Representatives crowded the rear of the Senate hall. Secretary of State Bryan, himself often referred to in debate; Secretary of War Garrison, Secretary of the Navy Daniels, Postmaster General Burleson. Secretary j of the Treasury McAdoo and Secretary to the President Tumulty sat about the chamber. They listened eagerly and held whlspqp-ed conferences as the discussion ! progressed. The diplomatic gallery was i filled with members of the foreign corps, I with Ambassador Spring-Rice of Great Britain at their head. Senators Reed and James vigorously i defended the committee resolution, de claring that the insult of the flag at Tarn pico justified all that the resolution pro- ' vided for. Would Invade Whole Country. Senator Fall made a lengthy plea for a campaign that would cover the length and jbreadth of Mexico. He reviewed a list of alleged outrages I by \ ilia, military chief of the constitu tionalists, against American property holders in Mexico. He declared that the United States stood as a "fence for the burglars of northern Mexico." and that "we stood indicted as receivers of stolen goods." He declared action against Huerta would not relieve conditions in northern Mexico. Senator Norris of Nebraska sought to bring out whether there had been any de mand for reparation or apology except on account of refusal to salute the flag. Sen ator Hitchcock said he deprecated the narrowing down of the question in any such way, and that the Senate should not present the spectacle of refusing to stand by the President acting within his constitutional authority. Senator Bristow of Kansas, republi can, followed. He said he had never been a special apostle of peace, but he hesitated when it came to joining in any action that meant plunging his country into war. He said he should vote for the Lodge resolution and against the committee resolution. He declared the administration had cringed before and supplicated Great Britain, had avoided a controversy with Japan and then, with lionlike boldness had rushed to attack Mexico. "I am against plunging into war with Mexico," he said. "No man can tell what it will lead to." He criticised the President as without justification in assailing Mexico, in attacking a harbor, in taking a city and sacrificing lives of Mexicans and Americans "in the name of peace." Disputes Senator Hitchcock. Senator Bristow disputed what he said was an assertion of Senator Hitchcock that the President had acted within "his constitutional authority." "My under standing," said Mr. Bristow, "is that the Constitution prescribes that Congress shall declare war." "War has begun," interrupted Senator Clapp of Minnesota. "The situation twenty-four hours ago and tonight are two different propositions. The things the President has done since the scene in the House yesterday have gone into history. It's a new viewpoint we must face, to consider the presentation of the appear ance of a divided Senate." "Would the fact that a battle is now on and that American sailors are now being attacked," interrupted Senator Reed, "would that make any difference in the senator's position on this sub ject?" "The senator misstates the situation/* said Senator Bristow. "I know that Mexicans are now defending their coun try from attacks by our forces." "Yes. an attack forced by the very facts set forth in the Lodg-e substitute, which the senator says he will vote for," replied Senator Reed. Senator Williams of Mississippi en deavored to interrupt Senator Bristow. and both floor and galleries relaxed from the tension of the hour to laugh at his persistent efforts to obtain the floor, and his passages with Senator Lewis in the chair. He Anally secured the floor in Ills own right, and made a reply to Mr. Bristow. Galleries Called to Order. As Senator Williams proceded the gal leries were frequently admonished by Senator Lewis. "The chair would advise the galleries." he said, "that the Senate is a delibera tive body, and not an amusement affair." Senator Williams continued at length, pressing a series of questions relating to the Vera Cruz incident, which he di rected at Senator Bristow. The latter finally interrupted to reply: "Unfortunately, Mr. Chairman, the Record cannot show everything is go ing on here tonight, so I will not reply to the senator," he said. Senator Williams was finally interrupted by a point of no quorum which forced a roll call. Senator Norris supported the Lodge substitute. Another effort by Democratic Leader Kern to fix a time for a vote failed at 1:20 o'clock. Senator Poindexter of Washington objected. Opposes Hour for Voting. "The senator from Indiana," said Mr. Poindexter. "has undertaken to say that I he will hold the Senate in session until this matter is disposed of. The President is now proceeding with full power and dis cretion. There is no emergency which calls for the immediate disposition of this resolution. "Many senators desire to speak, and I shall object to any agreement on an hour for voting at this time.'' "Then the Mexican parliament and the world must witness the spectacle of the Senate of the United States refusing to support the President," said Senator Kern. "'This is a time of danger, a time of peril." Senator Clapp then resumed his speech. He told the Senate that while he be lieved the President would proceed in Mexico* regardless of what action the Senate might take, he believed the time had come when Mexico should realize that there is but one voice in the United States, now that war is on, and that a divided Senate would encourage Huer ta. "We can't stop the President," he said. "I wish he could have been stopped months ago, yesterday and today, but i now we must forget the mistakes, brush ! away the past and! deal with a real war." Bristow Would Halt President. i Senator Bristow demanded to know if | Senator Clapp believed that if the Sen ate should refuse to pass a resolution justifying the President that the Pres ident would continue to carry out the policy on which he had already em barked. Senator 'Clapp said he believed the President would do so. Senator Bris tow suggested that meant usurpation and that Congress should stay the Presi dent's hand and refuse him the men and arms "and stop the murder and slaugh ter going on tonight." Senator Clapp replied that he believed the President would continue regardless "in the alleged cause of peace and main tenance of national honor." "The President's getting us into war I think was not justifiable," said Sena tor Clapp, "but to vote against the President now would encourage the enemy to believe that there is a division of sentiment in this country." He added that the "President will learn by bitter experience that the at tack on Vera Cruz will consolidate all Mexico, north and south, against his forces." Senator Townsend of Michigan said he would support the President, "since he has assumed the heavy burden of respon sibility." Adding, "if he had made a mistake he knows it now." Works Withdraws Amendment. Senator Works, who had proposed an amendment to the resolution directing the President to accept the apologies so far made by Huerta as adequate, said that "the President, without action by Congress, has already begun a war with Mexico." Therefore, he said, he would not press for a record vote upon his amendment. Senator Poindexter at this point propos ed an amendment which would declare "that a state of war now exists between the United States and Mexico." "Instead of authorizing the President to commit further hostility against Mexico Congress would be better engaged in di recting the President to desist," said Senator Poindexter. He contended that the customhouse seizure and the shoot ing of 200 Mexicans amply met any ques tion of national honor. The Senate, on motion of Senator Shive ly, voted to lay on the table the amend ment of Senator Poindexter proposing to declare "that a state of war exists." REBEL LEASERS SILENT.

Chaplain George Livingston Bayard of the navy plans to leave Washington this afternoon or evening for New York, where he will take passage on the steam er Moro Castle for Mexican waters. Throughout today he was busy at the navy yard and Xavy Department build ing closing up matters which demanded his attention before he sails. Coming to Washington five years ago. Chaplain Bayard, who comes from one of the noted families of Georgia, at once took a deep interest in the religious life of the city, and particularly that of his own denomination, the Protestant Episco pal. Together with Mrs. Bayard, the social life of the city has seen much of him. particularly those affairs of both the mili tary and naval service. He is a member of the Metropolitan and Chevy Chase clubs. Entered Service Ten Years Ago. Chaplain Bayard entered the naval service while attached to the Protestant Episcopal diocese of Xew York ten years ago, and for five years thereafter CHAPLAIN G. LIVINGSTON BAYARD. (Harris & Ewlng photo.) he was stationed in the metropolis, fol lowed by the assignment to this city, where he has since remained. Several years ago Chaplain Bayard be came chaplain of the Order of Wash ington, of which Rear Admiral Charles H. Stockton, U. S. X., retired, is the commander. In this organization he has taken a deep interest, for another Georgian, Dr. Joseph G. B. Bulloch, member of the Bulloch family of that state, and cousin of Col. Theodore Roosevelt, is its chancellor. Chaplain Bayard wh51e a resident of Washington has lived at Stoneleigh Court. OFFERS OF TBOOPS MADE. War Fever Spreads and Recruiting Offices Are Crowded.
