PORT ARTHUR. Tex., June 12.
Firemen were guarding today against
further outbursts of a blaze in the j

the life of a workman, injured 11 others
and caused property damage estimated
by company officials at nearly $1,000,-
Although still burning in a limited
area today, the blaze was brought
under control yesterday four hours |
after it was started by an unexplained
explosion, which shot a geyser of burn
lng oil over nearby structures.
Leonard Hatch, an employe, died
from burns several hours after the ex
plosion. M. K. Holmes, superintendent
of the plant, said a check of employes
showed none was missing.
PORTES GIL’S FRIENDS
COME TO HIS DEFENSE
By the Associated Press.
MEXICO CITY, June 12.—A group
of congressmen and friends of former
President Portes Gil said Tuesday
they had taken steps to obtain doc
umentary proof that Luis Morones
Monday night charged Portes Gil with
plotting the assassination of President
Ortiz Rubio, after which they intend j
to bring a civil action against Morones j
Morones, a former secretary of in- j
dustry. commerce and labor, made the j
charge in a political speech Tuesday j
night before the assembly of the Nation- i
alist Revolutionary Alliance. He alleged i
that Portes Gil, while still president, |
had incited Los Angeles Communists
to plot the death of Ortiz Rubio if he \
visited that city while oq, his tour of
the United States last January.
Portes Gil said the charges were j
•bsurd and Tuesday asked Ortiz Rubio
to make a full investigation. Mean- I
while he has received letters from all |
parts of the republic branding the j
Morones charges as false.
Railroad workers who are not affiliated
with the C. R. O. M., the organization
headed by Morones, made public a
statement accusing Morones of false
hoods in order to further his own
political ambitions. They also denied
that Portes Gil agitated among them so
that they would withdraw their support
from Ortiz Rubio, as Morones charged.
