OBSTRUCTING ROAD TO MEXICALL
-Mexican, March 31 Scouts under
Francisco Quljada were busy all day

namite In anticipation or the Immediate
approach of the Mexican federals from
Tocate under-Colonel Mayol. Dull ex
plosions could be heard all afternoon
frtn points along the boundary, thlr
teOn miles away.
Tlie trail Is In portions very narrow,
and it is evidently the n!anvof the in
surrectos to make It as nearlv impas
suble as possible and then post a strong
force to attack the federals as they ap
proach. It is expected that Berthold
will arrive from Alamo with his force
of . seventy-five to assist Quljadu's
lvunty-five men at the pass.
Salinas who is in command here, pes
irtte the protests and denials of Leva
is plainly Married over the situation. In
the event that Mayol hurls back the
cbniblned forces of Quijada and Bert
lftld at the pass, the federals will eas
ier proceed and form a cordon about
tips city up to the boundary and starve
tpe insurrectos out. The supply of ra
tions here will not last more than four
oVfive days unless replenished.
Stanley's independent force of eighty
men constitutes the only menace to
federals in case they beselge Mexicali.

RESULT OF INVESTIGATION
Heads of Divisions Had
Paid No Attention to In
structions and Had Taken
No Interest in the Re-
formsvof Postal Service
Washington, March 31 Drastic ac
tion was taken tonight by Postmaster
General Hitchcock In effecting a re
organization of the railway mall ser
vice. A dozen changes of the most im
portant officers were made by Mr.
Hitchcock as a result of careful inves
tigation and consideration.
. Theodore Ingalls of Kentucky, super
intendent of the division of rural malls,
was appointed general superintemTent
of the railway mall service at $4,000 a
year, in succession to Alexander Grant,
who was transferred to St. Paul, Min
nesota as division superintendent, with
a reduction to $3,000.
Norman Perkins, division superinten
dent of St. Pau! becomes superinten
dent of the Washington division, suc
ceeding Charles W. Vlckery. who is ap
pointed chief clerk of the Cincinnati
uivision, vice a. j. nan, reduced to a
railway postal clerk.
Clyde M. Reed, district superinten
dent at Cleveland, is appointed super
intendent of the Cincinnati division to
succeed Charles Rager, reduced to chief
clerk in the Atlantic division In place
of John F. Biodgect, removed.
John C. Koons, postmastr.r inspector
In the Washington division is appointed
railway mail superintendent In charge
of the Cleveland division. George C.
Thompson is appointed superintendent
of the division of rural malls in succes
sion of Mr. Ingalls. Inspector Daniel
of the New York division is appointed
inspector in charge at St. Louis.
The outcome Is the most sweeping
change ever made In the history of the
railway mail service. While signing
the necessary orders for the changes,
Mr. Hitchcock said: "The investiga
tion which wo conducted so long and
so carefully indicated clearly that the
action taken was absolutely necessary.
The railway mall service nas suffered
from poor management and lack of
In certain divisions it was found
that the chief clerks had not been in
specting linen as was their duty. Some
of tiie routes had received no inspection
for several years.
The business methods of the ser
vice in several offices were antiquated
and that as a consequence there was
much duplication of work.
"Instructions from the department
directing inspections, for example, for
and Conservation of equipment received
only perfunctory attention. There has
also been a lack of co-operation in car
rying into effect certain reforms which
I had Indicated and made it evident
that no proper spirit of co-ordination
with tlfe department existed in the rail
way mail service. The changes which
I have made in the executive manage
ment will tend In my judgment to
ward the accomplished In a satisfac
tory way of the reforms In methods
and practices which we have instituted
throughout the postal service."

Viterbo, March 31. The chief of
Uie Camorra, "Knricone" Alfani testi
ried his defiance today. He described
how Abbattemeggio tried to black

ulted a lawyer, who said that if
he were accused, his acquittal would
be certain, but that If lie were ar

Therefore, the prisoner, said he de

James Bryce, British ambassador, held'

Knox regarding the proposed arbitra

are still in the tentative stage. It is
said that no hitch has yet been, en
countered and that reasonable pro

This treaty, the forerunner of Its
kind will be presented to the world
as a model for lessening strire among

of the mammoth task which its im-'
portance involves, the negotiations with

completed in form Tor presentation to

As far as negotiations have pro

the treaty' will provide for the arbi

may arise between the two countries
including matters relating to questions
