General Car i.'jiza today ordered an investigation ot the Baueh case by the samp com mission sent to EI Paso to look into the Ronton death. This action was taken after the receint of a report from General Villa regarding the dis appearance of Baiuh. In Villa's report he stated that Rauch had been jailed at Chihuahua on suspicion of being an agent of unfriendly interests, "villa said, how ever, the American had been released and that since then the state au thorities have been unable to locate him. He promised continued efforts to secure more information about his disappearance. The hope is expressed that Car innza's order for the Benton com mission to investigate the Baueh case will be ample assurance to the Washington government of the good will of the Mexican insurgents to assist in the protection of foreigners in Mexico. It is explained that at the time the Teuton commission had been ap pointed, nothing had been heard from General Villa regarding the Ranch case which would warrant a special investigation, although Villa had been instructed immediately to investigate and report upon the American's dis appearance. All possible haste in teporting upon the death of Kenton will be required of the commission. Assurances were given that the committeemen had in structions to report confidentially to Carranza. the result of their finding. regardless of political or personal feeling. It is said Carranza will leave for the east at once and for ten days will be out of communication be tween Xaco, Sonora. and Casas Grandes, Chihuahua. All persons who lome from the territory held by the Kdernls have been ordered exeludi-el from .Mexico. The first gunboat battle in the Mexican warfare ended at Topolo bompo after a half hour of inef fectual firing between the rebel war ship Tampico and the federal gun boats Morelos and Guerrero, which steamed down from Guaymas for tiie attack. The Tampieo's guns seemed to have longer range than those of the federal gunboats, and the latter drew away. Xo damage was done to either side Commission at El Paso KL PASO. March 4. The .Mexican commissiem to examine into the j ocath of William Benton, appointed by Carranza. arrived here tonight to review the findings of the alleged courtmartial independently of the Anglo-American commission, work of which has been retarded by the dip le'mntic technicalities. The commis sion expects to begin work tomorrow to ascertain whether the arrest and conviction of P.enton was according to due form of law and justice. I'nless seme flaw in the proceed ings is discovered, they do not expect to exhume Benton's body.

Wilson Against Any Exemption Of Canal Tolls ASSOCIATE!! PRESS DISPATCH J WASHIXGTOX, March 4 Hesolu tions were adopted by both houses of congress providing tor a joim session tomorrow- at 1-:3m o'clock, to hear an address by the president urging the repeal of the provision of tiie Panama Canal act exempting American coastwise shipping from the payment of tolls. President Wilson's determination to urge this reversal of policy with re gard to tolls by a personal appeal to te ngre-ss, stimulated interest in the controversy today. Democrats who had intended to fight against the re peal, planned to cairy on their strug gle with vigor. For several days it has been apparent that the president has been gaining converts to his de cision that tolls exemption is in vio lation of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, which provides that the canal shall be for the use of all nations on a basis of ei;ualitv. After the president has read his message, it will be referred to the house committee on interstate com merce, which will draft the "legisla tion to cany out his recommenda tions. It is expected the committee v. ill revive the bill introduced by Representative Sims, of Tennessee, and introduced at the last session, which would provide for a flat repeal of toll exemption. Although some opposition to the 1 ill will develop in the committee, it is assured of a favorable report. Many democrats, including Majority Leader Underwood, will oppose the repeal, but Mr. Underwent has an r.cunced he will not attempt te or ganize an opposition. He intends to speak against it. however. From the democratic siele- in the senate' the exposition will be eliree-tcel by Senators O'Rurmnii, chairman ef the committee on intere'eanic canals, rnel Se-nator Chamberlain, f Oregon. Supporters ef the repeal have as sured the- president that the- bill will Pass both Pemses. the Mexican situation less acute, there are several aspects which it is now j practically certain will occasion a I spirited debate in the senate, within a I few days.

Inci dentally Senator Fall presented to the foreign relatieins committee, Pedro Del Vilar anel Cecilio Oeon, representing Felix Diaz, who asked the moral sup port of the I'nited States, to bring peace to Mexico through another revo lution, headed by Diaz. Members ef the committee flatly stated the United States wil receignize no such movement. Vilar and Oeon severely arraigned Hue rta as corrupt, Carranza anel Villa, as bandits, anel argueel that Felix' Diaz had a host of piyal Mexicans behind him, who would rush te his support to establish a real government in Mexico. Th"y wanted to get the promise', if possible, fretn the American govern ment. that it would recognize him if a counter revolution were successful.

Jeihn Hassett Moore, counseller in the state department anel re-cognized as the strong man of the present administra tion on international questions. n cluelcei his services with the govern ment today, when the president ac eepte'd the resignation Moore sub mitted a month ago. A common re port is that some ef Moore's personal views e n impeirtant policies relating to foreign affairs are neit in accord with theise of his superiors, particularly in the case where the epjestion of the recognition of the Huerta governme.-nt is be-ing eliseussed. Cemdng at the present time whe-n international affairs occupy the fore front of official anel public attention, the' departure ef Moore from the posi tiein se-ceind emly to that of Bryan has attracteel widospivad comment. Al theitigh his resignation has bee-n in the presieb-nt's hanels sine-e February sen: eind, to take effect today, the fai t was not generally kneiwn.

When it was definitely determined not to recog nize the Huerta government, Mt Moeire concentrated his cnergie-s to carry nut the policy officially iletei mineel upon. During the elipleimatic eontrove-rsy with Japan arising out of the passage by California eif an anti-alie'n lanel law, Mr. Moore was constantly con sulted by the president and his coun sel reflected in the notes defining the Ami'rie'an attitude. Whe-n Mr. Bryan was in California. Mr. Moore was aet ing sercetary eef state in freepient con ferences with the' president on the Japanese riiestion. At all times during Mr. Bryan's ab sence from "Washington Mr. Moor.' aiding as secretary of state oi-casion-ally sat at the cabinet table. Mr. Moore's letter accompany bis resigna tieen uneler elate of Fe-bruary 2 is as fedlowr: "My Dear Mr. President: In resigning the office of Counsellor for the De partment ef state.

My prese-nt term will, em the day on which my resignation is to take effect, have last ed more than ten months while a full year will have elapsed since the cleise- of the last administration. Ample op portunity having thus been afforded for the effective organization of the department's force, the duty which I took upon myself has been fully per formed.
