Edward A. Gisburne. Wireless
Operator. One of First
to Fall.
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

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

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

Democrats?Ashurst, Bankhead, Bryan,

When Party Lines Were Drawn.
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
