Disclosed in Trial of the Revo
lutionists at Tombstone
The Defense Will Begin Of
eringTestimony This Morn
ing and Most Sensational
Developments are Promised
Within Twenty-Four Hours
Tombstone, Ariz., May 14. The
prosecution introduced more letters in
the Magon, Villareal and Rivera trial
today. The translations revealed an
elaborate plans for an attack on sev
eral Mexican towns near the border
to gain a foothold for the Mexican
liberal party and work for the over
throw of the Diaz government.
Custom houses were to be seized
and government buildings occupied.
All letters cautioned against attacks
on Americans, to avoid intervention
which was to be feared more than
repulses by the Mexican troops. Much
interest is manifested in the trial and
many tilts are exchanged between the
" The prosecution offered much doc
umentary evidence which was admit
ted only after strenuous objections
by counsel for the defense. Telegrams,
papers, commissions, etc., seized by
the Arizona rangers in the raid on
the Douglas junta, were admitted.
All dealt with plans of attack on
the Mexican border and carefully
outlined expeditions to hold the same
against the Mexican troops. The cir
culars were to be secretly distributed
among Mexican soldiers who were to
enlist in sympathy with the revo
lution. ' and" tlieir" -ballets, directed
against the invading hosts, were to
be aimed high over their heads.
Perhaps the most important and
sensational event of the day occurred
when Juan Vasquez. a member of
the Douglas Junta, arrested with the
remaining members at the time of the
raid in September, 1906, began to
relate the history of the secret or
ganization at Douglas, their plans
and movements with which he was
identified and was one of their most
energetic members. He was still on
the stand when court closed and his
further examination is expected to
reveal many sensational features.
It is understood that Vasquez has
been granted immunity for turning
state's evidence. The defense claims
that the witness Is a Mexican detec
tive and a bitter cross examination
is in store for him.
Tombstone, May 14 (Special.)
The government closed Its case at 11
o'clock tonight in the case of the
alleged Mexican revolutionists on trial
here. Witnesses for the defense will
be placed on the stand at 10 o'clock
tomorrow morning.
Vasquez testified to having attend
wi a number of meetings of alleged
revolutionists in Douglas, at which I
from twenty-five to forty were pres
ent. He gave their names. On cross
examination he became confused and
contradicted several statements maed
by him in the hearing in Los An
geles. Ranger Hopkins, who took part in
the raid on the quarters of the al
leged revolutionists in Douglas in
September. 1906, partially identified
several flags, some dynamite and
caps. One of the flags, a white one,
bore in red letters, the motto, "Re
form, Liberty, Justice."
On the letters which the men un
der arrest wrote, the signatures of
which have been positively identified,
the government places its greatest
dependence for conviction. It was
positively asserted tonight that within
the next twenty-four sensational de
velopments, the nature of which has
been made known to but, will be

Dun as Usual Entertains the More
Roseate View.
New York. May 14. Bradstreet's to
morrow will say: "Irregularity still
characterizes the trade, crop and in
dustrial situation. In industrial lines
the consensus of reports is that fur
ther improvements have been registered
esjecially in the iron and steel, coal,
coke, woolen manufacturing and leath
er trades.
"Building is active and lines of trade
catering to this industry are feeling
beneficial effects. Eastern shoe fac
tory orders on hand are below -normal:
Sole leather is active, supplies well
controlled and prices firmer. Upper
leather are also much active."
New York, May 14. Dun will say:
"Further significant improvements
have been made in iron and steri, and
as they form a great basic trade this
goes far toward establishing the long
desired readjustment of -the whole in
dustrial situation. This and the better
weather for both agriculture and mer
cantile interests are the week's most
important trade developments.
"A marked optimistic feeling there
fore prevails in most branches of busi
ness in spite of the fact of the unset
tling tariff debate."

Produced by Threats of a
Revolutionary Strike
The Postal Strike in the Op
inion of the Government
Officials is Further . Wan
ingThe Working Men
are Distrustful of Agitators
Paris, May 14. The striking postal
employes adopted resolutions at a
meeting today appealing to the work
men's organization to make common
cause with them. The meeting was
attended by representatives of work
men who delivered Inflamatory speech
es, promised the postal employes im
mediate support, and threatened, if
necessary, to place themselves under
the . revolutionary general federation
of labor.
. These threats produced a big scare
but there Is . a strong suspicion here
that the leaders in the movement are
bluffing. The strike of the postmen
itself apparently ha3 lost ground.
The rank and file of the men seem
ingly are convinced that the agitators
are acting for their personal end and
as tools of the revolutionary' prole
tariat organizations and they hesitate
to risk losing their permanent sit
uations and pensions.
At Chartiers and Dijon today the
strikers in view of the attitude taken
by parliament, voted to return to
work. Government officials say the
movement is collapsing and point out
that only 48,000 of the 300.000 railway
men whose support was pledged the
strikers today by M. Guerard, belong
to the union, and that these mem
bers are mostly track men and arti
sans employed in the shops. It is
reported tonight that the strikers are
cutting the wires.
This afternoon's meeting was at
tended by 3000 strikers and delegates
frm various unions. The strike lead
ers charged that military precautions
taken by the government proved that
it was intended to "drown the strike
movement in blood." They favored
a direct appeal to the workmen's
unions for co-operation and, amid
great enthusiasm the strikers voted
unanimously for an alliance with the
workmen "with all its consequences."
It was declared that the moment
had arrived for a solid revolutionary
movement under the direction of the
general federation of labor. The res
olutions as passed pledge the postal
employe and the workmen's organiza
tion to unite for battle to the death,
"in order to obtain liberty of thought
and speech and the right of all em
ployes of the state to form a syndi
cate." The railroad and the gas men met
tonight but neither appeared disposed
to give Immediate effect to the prom
ises made by their leaders this af
ternoon. The railroad employes post
poned their decision on the question
until a meeting next Monday.
His Allusion to It as "Wind Jam
ming." l Washington, May 12. Asking that
an interview with J. J. Hill be read

body convened todav. Senator Scott
Indorsed its advance to congress, that

"This." Mr. Scott said, "is in line
with letters I am dally receiving, beg
ging and praying that these gentle
men (waving his hand over the senate
chamber) get through with their wind
jamming and let the country go ahead
with Its business."
TORY. Washington, May 14. Again the
oommittee on finance was upheld when
the senate by a vote of 35 to 42 voted
down an amendment by Mr. Cummins
to lower the duty on round iron and
upheld the house rate recommended by
the senate Committee. Almost the en
tire day was given to a debate on the
profits of the United States Steel Cor
poration. . Mr. Beveridge proposed an amend
ment to the tariff, increasing the tax
on tobacco and Its products. He charg
ed that by continuing the short-weight
packages of the Spanish war period,
the tobacco trust was reaping a har
vest of $21,000000 a year.

: Kansas City, May 14. A series of
tornadoes In Kansas, Missouri and Ok
lahoma late today, killed at least five
persons, injured fifty-five, laid waste
one town, wrecked a train and did
great damage to property. Twenty
five persons were injured by a storm
that swept over Mount Washington
and Fairmont Park, in the suburbs of
Kansas City. At least two of these are
thought to be fatally injured.
The town of Hollis, Kas., near Con
cordia, was swept away. Here three
persons were killed and ten injured.
The dead are: Fred Jeardoe, John
Cyre and Gorge Eckert. The Eck
strom 'family, consisting of five per
sons is missing. Their house is in
ruins and it is thought all are dead.
Near Great Bend the tornado hilled
two and injured twenty. All the
wires are down in that vicinity and it
is feared the death list may be greater.
William Ackerly, a Santa Fe engi
neer, and Frank Nicholson, a conduc tor
were killed while with a bridge gang
between Great Bend and Kinsley. A
tornado wrecked the work train of
which Ackerly was engineer and blew
It into a ditch. Several members of

The wind spread over a wide area,
however, and injured many whose
names could not be learned tonight.
Many conflicting reports have been re
ceived. One had ten killed. At Hois

ed out near Walcott, between Leaven
worth and Kansas City. The Burling
ton and Santa Fe were forced to annul
some of their trains. Electrical dis
turbances crippled the telegraph and
telephone wires and on this account
only meager reports from the storm
swept area could be obtained.
Some Facts Concerning the San Fran
cisco Street Railway Controversy.
San Francisco, May 14 Charles S.
Wheeler, attorney for Rudolph Spreck
els, was called to the stand by the
prosecution in the trial of Patrick Cal
houn today. His testimony, Jlke that
of former Mayor Phelan, who spent a
day and a half on the stand during the
week, was directed, according to the
statement of Heney, to a refutation of
"implied and insinuated" charges of the
defense that Spreckels, Phelan and
others were engaged in a conspiracy
to oust the United Railroads from the
streets of San Francisco, with a view
to obtaining transportation franchises
for themselves.
The cross-examination was conduct
ed by Earl Rogers and was construed
by Heney as a challenge of the mo
tives of the incorporators of the Mu
nicipal company. Wheeler declared
that he had taken no part in any dis
cussion of the project "until after Cal
hounJntimated his intention of trolley
izing Market street," and he insisted1 it
was only to combat that plan that the
opposition company was incorporated.

A Los Angeles Assayer Found the
Ore to be Worth Handling.
Kansas City, May 14. Testimony
for the defense was introduced today
in the case of the government against
the Horn brothers, Raymond P. May,
and S. H. Snider, charged with using
the mails to defraud in promoting an
Arizona mine. The first evidence in
troduced by the defense was the de
position of C. G. Werner, a practical
miner of Arizona who was vice presi
dent and director of the first company
organized to develop the Two Queens
The defense asesrts that it was
upon the representations of Werner
as to the value of the mine that they
were induced to become interested
sufficiently to promote it. In con
nection with Werner's deposition,
which was taken in Phoenix, Ariz., a
circular was read, alleged to have
been inspired by Werner, the con
tents of which indicated that the
mine contained valuable ore.
A deposition given at Los Angeles
by R. L Perry, an assayer of that
city, stated that assays of ore from
the "Two Queens" mine, examined
by him, showed a range of value from
$6 to $7,000 per ton.
John E. Horn, 22 years old, testi
fied in his own defense. He said he
had bought "5,000 shares of the Two
Queens merely as an investment, and
was not connected with his brothers
in a business way.
"You organized the Keystone In
vestment company, captialized at
$10,000. What other men are inter
ested in that?" he was asked. "I am
the whole thing," replied Horn. "My
father holds one share and my wife
holds one." It Is expected the case
will be closed on Monday.

Speaker Cannon on the Chlor
oform Proposition
The Famous Physician Una
ble to Say That the Plague
Will Be Eradicated But
the Progress in That Direc
tion Inspires Hope.
Washington, May 14. Speaker Can
non is not afraid of Dr. Osier and his
old age theory. He told Dr. Osier so
today during an address before the
national association for the study and
prevention of tuberculosis. "Dr. Osier,
I have reached 71, and I shake my fist
in your face," he said. Dr. Osier laugh
ed heartily at this defl.
The speaker harked back to the days
of his childhood when bath tubs were
almost unheard of. and the snow
would sift in and cover those lying in
bed. "We had plenty of fresh air then
on the Wabash and everywhere on the
frontier before the railroads," he said.
Mr. Cannon favored more play grounds
for children but urged that the legisla
tor be dealt with gently if he did not
do everything wanted of him.
Dr. Osier in his address said that
tuberculosis no longer was the prob
lem of the doctors and that it prob
ably would take two or three gener
ations to reduce its ravages to the
present rate of typhoid. Dr. Osier con
gratulated the association on having
awakened the public, legislatures, phil
anthropists and physicians.
Three things remained to be done,
said Dr. Osier. The first was to kep
the pubire awake, the" second, to ob
tain more money and the third, to
arouse the interest of more men and
women, because the campaign was no
longer one entirely for the doctors.
"Whether tuberculosis will be finally
eradicated." he declared, "is ever an
open question, but when we think of
what has been.-done in one generation,
how the mortality in many places has
been reduced more than 50 per cent.
Indeed in some places 100 per cent, it
is a battle of hope with victory in
