Indiffere n c e was manifested everywhere. General Huerta appeared to be the favorite candidate for the presidency, with General Blanquet for the vice-presidency. Huerta, it is reported, received vir tually an unanimous vote of confidence. Returns indicate the re election of all the present members of the chamber of deputies and the senate. The lightest vote in many years was recorded both in the capital and the nearby towns. To Move on Queretaro EAGLE PASS, Texas, July 5. Constitutionalist troops from the division of the east were ordered by General Pablo Gonzales to proceed at once to Queretaro, according to ve ports sent to Saltillo.' The move ment is thought to have been pre cipitated by the withdrawal of the body of federals under General Pas iual Orozco, from the Queretaro gar rison to reinforce the garrison at Mexico city, although, the fedevals' final stand probably will be at Queretaro. Colonel Mark-l reported that the entire country is friendly to the consti tutionalists, and declared that the San Luis Potosi garrison is so weak ened by the continued withdrawal of the troops that he did not expect the federals to make a strong resistance. Settling Differences TORREON, July 5 When the Car-ranza-Villa conference ended after a long session, both sides were appar ently confident that whatever dif ferences existed between the consti tutionalists' leaders were in a fair way of being eliminated tomorrow when the conference will reconvene for the final session. A formal statement was issued that a complete understanding of the points taken up today had been reached and stated that as soon as railroads to the north are repaired, many of Villa's brigades will be sent to Chihuahua city, which Villa himself is expected to visit as soon as the conferences are ended. Alliance With Zapata SANTA CRUZ. July 5 It is ru mored here that an alliance between Huerta and Emiliano Zapata will be formed soon. Both here and at the capital a vague conviction exists that a crisis is imminent, but only vague reasons are offered for the belief Did McKinley Foresee German-American War? I ASHOCIATBn PRESS DISPATCH BERLIN, July 5. Did President Mc Kinley cable to . Admiral Sampson during the war with Spain: "Don't risk a single ship; war with Germany Imminent." A writer who uses the pseudonym of Carolus Adolphus, and who is un derstood to be a former prominent diplomat, declares that this dispatch was sent, following closely on the Dewey-Diedriehs dispste at Manila. The statement Is made in a book en titled "Julchen in the Land of Lib erty," which consists of a series of letters describing a trip to America. One of these letters describes the Manila Incident and continues: "The question is, what did our dip lomats have In mind in sending a fleet? If it had been merely a mat ter of protecting German life and property, an armored skiff would have been sufficient. The truth is, how ever, that we really Intended to grab the Philippinea if possible, since we were badly informed and believed that Americans did not want them. This mistake of ours was strengthened by SEEMS HUERTA IS RE-ELECTED PRESIDENT HUERTA. Apartments Were Filled With High Explosive Bombs f ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH NEW YORK, July a. In the ruins of the tenement wrecked yesterday by the explosion of a bomb which it i.i believed was intended for use against John I). Rockefeller or his son, the police found that Arthur Oaron, who was killed with three others, used his apartemnts as a ctntev for the distribution of inflam matory literature, ami that it was filled with death-dealing explosives. In the opinion of the police the evi dence tends to show an anarchistic plot. In the gruesome but suggestive pyre, evidence was uncovered of a stve'ed hand clutching two small pieces of wire made ready for con nection. The authorities believe the owner of the hand was in the act of making an electric connection for one of the bombs when the explo sion killed him. The Industrial Workers of the World leaders asserted that Caron was not a member of that organiza tion and recently was refused ad mission. They declared the Indus trial Workers had nothing to do with the explosion. HEALTH OF PANAMA ASSOCIATED PRESS DlSi'ATCHl PANAMA. July 5. To further safe guard the public health, the canal government has proposed to the Pan amanian government that the numer ous coach and livery stables in the heart of aPnama city be concentrated in one location, where they can be readily supervised find cleanliness maintained. The plan is for a large public sta ble in one of the outlying districts under the direct supervision of the Panama railroad, to accommodate all the coach and car animals in the city. Stalls and parts of the building will be rpnterl to the owners of these ani mals, as also will space in another building for the vehicles. This will do away with practically every private stable in the city. he present stables are great breed ing places for flies, which at this sea son of the year are especially numer ous in Panama. It is probable the plan wil Hip shortly carried out. that the next few days will see de velopments. , -Mexicans prominent in political, commercial and social life, capital are joining in increasing strength of the army of fugitives. It is report ed that General Joaquin Maa.s and family and Querido Moheno, former minister of commerce, left on a spe cial train for Puerto Mexico and also Jorge Huerta. a son of this president. the then ambassador in Berlin, Mr. Andrew White. He is believed to have held the opinion that by occupy ing the Philippines the United States would be simply thrusting a fishhook Info its own skin and he was not far wrong and he expressed that opinion, howbeit quite unofficially, at Wil helmstrasse, although he later de nied officially that he had said any thing of the kind. ' "In any event, the sending of our j fleet to the Philippines provoked great i displeasure in America, especially since Washington knew of our plans, j I recently made the acquaintance of an American officer who had been ' the adjutant of the commander-in-j chief in the Cuban campaign. This officer, who spoke excellent German, told me that he still had a copy of a telegram from the then President McKinley directly to the commanding admiral in Cuban waters, which read: 'Don't risk a single ship; war with Germany imminent.'

This is the fastest time the loop has ever been negotiated by any vehicle. Six starters lined up shortly after ten o'clock and all got away like machinery until it came the turn of Ellie Wilson, who again drew last. Wilson failed to get a shot out of his "old blue" and was forced to run with the machine taking two minutes hand icap in this delay. The main streets of Prescott were most poorly policed and crowds interfered greatly with the start. Ho the indefatagible Wilson turned around and pushed down hill to Set going then turned up again and marie a tremendous spurt to get away. So terrible was the grind that only Hoido, the winner, was saved from mechanical trouble. Rill Doheney, the first starter on a Merkle, had chain trouble. Harry Lane who won second place, made a magnificent dash after having taken the first hard turns in a cautious manner. Between Ameri can ranch and the finish he made up over h. minute on Boido. finishing forty-six -seconds slower than the win ner. Wilson fixed his chain twice and spilled in a sensational manner on the last turn into Gurley street and even at that finished in 55.33. The ride of Wilson amply repaid the watchers. At no time was he doing '.ess than thirty miles an hour and fre quently pushed up his speed to over sixty. Only a bad chain prevented him putting the record so low it could never again be touched with the track in its present condition. Roy Belding was the only Prescott rider to finish. He had slight mechanical troubles and failed to cut in on the hour mark. Boi do turned the tables on Wilson. It was in the Phoenix-Prescott race that young Lorenzo by an act of kindness to another rider lost to Wilson by the narrow margin of ten minutes. Boi do's time is five minutes less than that of Paul Keating who won the 1913 loop race. "I lost to two good men and I'm satisfied." said Wilson after the race. He displayed two badly laceer ated hands as the result of his thrill ing flop on Hospital curve. Summary: Boido first, start. 10:20; time 33:03. Lane second, 53:49. Wil son third, 55:33; Belding fourth, 1.07:30. Doheney out at Jerome Junc tion acount of broken chain. Will Hughes out on Mount Vernon street curve, where he skidded, hit curve and wrecked his machine, but escaped al most unhurt. G. P. Bullard. referee, President K. S. Clark of the Prescott Auto club and Lyle Abbott of The Republican of ficially inspected the course of the loop auto-race today. The Metropol is not hcTe but all other drivers have been in structed by Bullard and are now pre paring for the race. The start is at nine o'clock sharp. The auto race will probably be perilous as the course is very fast and tbe drivers are very jealous of the fast time made by Boido in winning today's motorcycle race. To morrow's features are the auto race and finals in the world's championship bucking contests at the fair grounds. The next to the last day of the Fron tier celebration finds excitement con centrating on these two big events. Hundreds of dollars have been placed on the automobile race with the Phoe nix Velie and Stan Murphy's Phoenix Mercer as favorites. The Phoenix crowd continues large but the excur sion which leaves at midnight will take many away. Naquin has decided to take the wheel himself for the loop race and "Red" Brewer will act as mechanic and relief driver. Bullard discovered in A. A. A. rules that no name except thaf of the car is allow ed on sides so "September eve" which was christened by the Republican will have to appear in the race with lamp black hiding her name. This was a sad blow to Naquin but he's game. Mnrnhv's Mercer is the onlv ear on which bear stories have not been cir culated. Jack Smith's No. 9 Buick is in good shape apparently and Jack him self will act as mechanic. Charlie Hunt in the Tucson Stutz is most con fident of winning but said he hasn't the car with which to pass those ahead of him. Naquin drew No. 8 in the line I'D and considers this a good omen as Earl Cooner, the famous Californian always wins as he did at Tacoma Sat urday with this number.

A. has provided a splendid civic social center in the re cently completed outdoor auditorium was again demonstrated last evening, when several hundred people gathered on the new plaza to attend the first of a series of union services held under the auspices of the churches of the city After a short song service, G. F. Rinehart, superintendent of the state temperance federation, who had charge of the meeting, gave an address on the subject of the proposed prohi bition amendment to the constitution, and of the campaign now being carried on for its adoption at the election in November. In comparing it with sim ilar amendments which have been adopted in other states, he said that the one proposed for Arizona is the most perfect one that has ever been drawn up, and told of the defects ex isting In other states, which have in terfered with the enforcement of the law as originally designed, and said that in his estimation the one now pro posed for Arizona is the most perfect one that has ever been drawn up. "Kansas" he said, "is the nearest dry of any state, but after January first, that honor will belong to Arizona." Superintendent Rinehart then pre sented a table of statistics, showing the cost of operation in Graham, a "dry" county, as compared with the expenditures in Maricopa, and spent some time in explaining and comment ing on the same. Music at the service last evening was furnished by tbe choir of the First Baptist church, under the direction of F. S. Blackwell. who 'will have charge of the music throughout the series of meetings. It is the intention to organ ize a union choir from the musical or ganizations of the various churches, and to use the same books that were used during the Brown and Curry meetings. The series of meetings, which will be in charge of the ministers of the churches of the city, will continue throughout the summer, taking the place of the regular Sunday evening services at the various churches.

I ! I Honors Lacking Bodies of Duke and the Duchess ASSOCIATED PBESS DISPATCH VIENNA, July ' 5 Now that the bodies of the murdered Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife are buried, a bitter controversy is raging over the manner in which the funeral was conducted. Friends of the duch ess are indignant at the emphasis laid to her inferior birth. Vienna papers published reports that the bodies were hurriedly carried into the railway waiting room at Poechlam, en route from Serannev, to escape a thunderstorm, and that the coffins remained on the stone floor for two hours, while volunteer firemen supposed to be assisting in controlling the arrangements, were drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and the more important peisonages smoked cigars in close proximity to the bodies.

W 10 Republican Leaders in Con ference at Prescott Name Committee to Work Out Plans for the Coming Campaign (Special to The Republican) PRESCOTT, July 5. With the ap pointment of Robert E. Morrison as chairman of a committee to decide upon what terms the republicans would meet the progressives in the placing of a ticket in the field this fall, republican leaders in conference here this afternoon and tonight voiced approval of the sentiment to extend an invitation to the prog ressives to join hands with the re I ublicans at the primaries. About 100 republican leaders took part in the conference of this even ing, but the progressives took no part and were not even represented. The surprise f the conference came at the outset when Judge Richard E. Sloan moved the appointment of Morrison as chairman of the com mittee to confer with the progressive leaders with the hope of devising some plan whereby co-operation without fusion might be adopted. The motion carried unanimously and Morrison was advised that the ex tension of an invitation to the prog ressives to come in and assist at the primaries would be acceptable to those present. However, the. progressives earlier hail decided that they would not only tiLke no part in the conference, but would oppose anything that smacked of fusion. There was a sentiment (Continued on Page Three) RENDER AID Military Preparat( is Continue In Ulster LONDON, July 5. With every week of suspense in the settlement of the future government of Ireland. the menace of the military preparations by the Ulster and the Home Rule volunteers increases. The present tendency among the volunteers of the south is to accept leadership by the nationalist party, which John Red mond offered them. Thus led, there would be a clean division of Home Rulers and anti-Home Rule men into hostile armed camps. The very dan gers of a bitter civil war which such a prospect presents furnishes the best safeguard for peace. Correspondents of the Associated Press at Dublin and Belfast have OVER TOE POLE All Provisions for the Jour ney Across South Polar Continent Are to Be Packed in Sausage Skins t j MENU NOT AN ENTICING ONE Rations Will Be Thirty-six Ounces Per Day Com pared With Average of " Three Pounds Eaten Daily, by Ordinary Person ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCHj LONDON, July 5. All the provis ions for Sir Ernest Shackleton's trip across the South Polar Continent are to be packed in sausage skins. "They are the most nutritious part of the composition," says Sir Ernest. "Wo tried them in Norway but did not suc ceed. eW shall no doubt do better at the South Pole when we are more hun gry." The menu prepared for the party is not an enticing one. It has been decid ed upon, however, under the advice of the Royal Army Medical College and is made up of food that is easy to transport and at the same time will keep the body -warm and strong. Thu lations will be 36 ounces a day, com pared with the average three pounds a day eaten by the ordinary person. In the latter there is a lot of waste which has been eliminated from the rations of the explorers. There will be daylight during the whole five months the party is on the march, so the ordinary day of twenty four hours will be disregarded, and a new day of nineteen established. Sup posing the hour for rising on the first day is seven o'clock, the time table will work out on thise lines: 7- S a. m. Preparations for the start and breakfast, consisting of three ounces of lard per man, two ounces of sugar, one ounce of dried milk, wheat protein and oats. 8- 12 m. March. 12-1 p. m. Rest and lunch, consist ing of nut food, composed of Brazils, almonds and beach nuts, mixed with, oil; aritf-dried milk, oats. 1-5 p. m. March. 5-7 p. m. Pitch camp , rest, and take dinner, consisting of the same food in the same quantity as break fast. 7 p. m. to 2 a, m. Sleep. The same round of nineteen hours will then be repeated. Sir Ernest explains that the lard ani sugar supply heat; the protein builds up muscles: the nuts are the most nourishing food in the world, and the oats, mixed with other rations, afford the bulk necessary to keep the organs from becoming atrophied. "You may feel rather sick when you hear of it," said Sir Ernest, "its rather a greasy compound. Indeed, when we tried it in Norway we thought it a very unpleas ant sort of ration, but I can assure you that scientifically considered, it is the finest that has ever been devised. I hope that this time hunger will play a very small part in our troubles." As the party intends to cut right across the continent, a march of 1800 miles, they will have to carry all their food with them, and cannot like pre vious explorers, whose objective was the pole, depend upon food depots on the return march. Therefore the great est attention is being paid to provis ions. The organization is perfect so far as human ingenuity can devise. They are allowing fifteen days food for blizzards, but they can go on much shorter rations if necessary. To carry the food motor sledges with aerial pro pellors will be used for the first time, and in addition there will be one hun dred Canadian dogs, which can carry 100 pounds each. For protection while sleeping' a sleeping hood, something after the fashion of an automobile hood, Is to be used. This weighs 37 pounds and ac comodates six men. whereas the old tents weighed 3ft pounds and accomo dated three people.

The most interesting de velopment is the plan, hitherto unpub lished of the Orangemen under Sir Edward Carson for taking charge of affairs by force if a provisional gov ernment is set up, and the fact that the commercial men of Belfast have used their influence in Ulster coun cils to postpone radical action until a Home Rule parliament has been established in Dublin.
