Reach of Constitutional-! its Causes Further Post-.! i ponenient j I DISREGARDS ALL' j HIS ENEMIES Shrubs His Shoulders and! Laughs at Difficulties ! Which Foree Him to Re-i main Another Twenty four Hours Associated press dispatch I rn-RTu MEXICO, July 18. Un willingness to leave behind any friends who want to accompany him into exile and failure to select a vessel to carry them beyond the reach of the constitutionalists re sulted in the postponement by Huerta of his departure for at least one day. With continuous disregard for his enemies in the interior, who would shove him "off Mexican soil if Ihey were able, Huerta shrugged bis shoulders and laughed at the diffi culties which force him to remain in the country another twenty-four hours; but most members of the party showed much disappointment lwcause they can not get out before tomorrow. Especially did the young women li.--play dissatisfaction. For most of them the trip means the pleasure of visiting European cities and they de sire to hurry affairs. Huerta spent a dull day, the greatest break in the monotony being his call late in the afternoon on the captain of the Grman cruiser Dresden. A small crowd gathered to watch him but there was no evidence of emotion other than curiosity. Huerta went over the side with the requisite number of sailors at the rail, but there was no salute. Anything re sembling formality was lacking. General Hernandez, who has been governor of Puebla, arrived late on a special train. General Corona, an active supporter of Huerta and sev eral other officers, are expected to reach here before ex-President Huerta departs. It has virtually Wen decided that Huerta and Blan qnet will go to Jamaica on the Dres den, and it is equally certain that the British cruiser Bristol will carry no passengers. The Mexican gunboats Bravo and Zaragoza received orders to coal and prepare for the sea, and this - is taken to mean that the new govern ment will place no obstacle in the way of their use, should it finally be determined, as appears likely, to em ploy them for the transportation of the remainder of the party. Huerta chatted freely with Captain Kohler regarding Mexico. He said the lime had come he hoped, when Mexico would hold its place among other nations and he entitled to the respect of all. It is civilization my country nee-is," he said. "Mexico is woefully lacking in education." Captain Fanshaw of the Bristol paid his respects to the ex-president in the morning, as did also the com mander of the Dresden. Until late in the afternoon Huerta had not called upon or seen his wife or other women members of his family. Nor had Blanquet seen Senora Blanquot. tint withstanding the fact that only customs warehouses separated the two special trains. Senora Huerta and other women of the- train who had been on the P.ristol were transferred to the Mex ican gunboat Zaragoza at noon. They then came ashore and had lunch in one of the coaches of their train. In j the evening they visited the Dresden, this being the chief break in the monotony for them also. Housed in heated railway conches and forced to listen to the continu ous grinding of trains and bumping cars, the stay of -the women here is becoming almost intolerable. In contrast, the soldiers accustomed to campaigning, seem to be enjoying themselves. They and their "solda deras" are huddling in the shadows of the box cars and bathing be neath hydrants with happy uncon cern, their camps suggesting the intimacy of home.

With President Wilson still standing solidly t behind his candidate, suggestions by several democratic senate leaders for a party conference on the nomination of Thomas D. Jones of Chicago, to the federal reserve board met with such vigorous opposition that the idea was virtually abandoned. Some of the staunchest administration supporters iliscouraged the plan. Reports that the fight might be end ed by withdrawal at the request of Jones were persistent but administra tion senators denied any knowledge of their orijin.

Bordas Losing His Power In Isle Republic ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH! WASHINGTON, July 18. While President P.ordas of the Dominican re public with his scanty army is besieg ing the northern rebels at Puerto Plata, hi.s hold upon the capital, San Damingo City, in the south, is weakening. Ac cording to advices to the state depart ment, the soutnern insurgents are al ready in a position to dictate terms, which may mean the abdication or flight of Bardos. American Charge 1' Affaires White, in the absence of Minister Sullivan, has been active in trying to prevent a clash near the capital. Following a successful uprising at La Romana, ahout fifty miles east of the capital, last week. Insurgent General Vidal has been making a triumphant march westward, and has occupied San Cris tobal and Bani after driving out small government garrisons. He vvas march ing toward the capital when he was met by "White The fact that "Whim has behind him two powerful American warships with their contingents of ma rines probably had its effect upon the insurgent leaders. At any rate, he agreed to an armistice for a few days while the federal officers in San Do mingo City communicated his demands to President Pordas over the wireless of the American navy vessels. New Haven Is To Have Still Another Chance ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH! WASHINGTON, July IS. The New Haven railroad is to have one more chance to avoid an anti-trust suit. Attorney General McReynolds agreed to hold a conference Monday with a committee of the road's directors. President Heustic of the New Haven made the appointment, but his tele gram did not give the names of his committee nor explain what new plan might be offered. The only point in controversy be tween the department and the rail road is how its Boston and Maine stock would be sold. The Massa chusetts legislature put a condition on the sale of the stock. New Haven directors have agreed not to accept that condition and McReynolds is in sisting that the condition he ac cepted. How the committee expects to compose the difficulty no official here? today would predict. It is cer tain, however, that the department will not agree to any solution not providing that the Boston and Maine be sold. Both the attorney general and President "Wilson have taken the position that the Massachusetts con dition is not unfair and does not violate the dissolution agreement be tween, the department and the rail road. The failure of the committee to present some acceptable plan will mean the filing of the long-delayed anti-trust suit. disclaimed any such intention. Demo crats on the hanking committee who voted for his confirmation plan to file their report early next week and ex pect to, file a supplemental statement from Jones in answer to the majority report which urged his rejection be cause of his connection with the Inter national Harvester company. Xo vote in the senate is expected un til late next week. Announcement by McAdoo that the three board members already confirmed will not be sworn in Monday as planned is taken to indi cate that the administration hoped for the confirmation of Jones and War burg in time to organize the board at one time. ARMISTICE IS PRACTICALLY Although There Has Been No Formal Agreement Between Opposing Forces Fighting is at Standstill in Mexico TO WITHDRAW FEDERAL TROOPS Carhajal Decides There Shall Be No More Hos tilities, But Carranza. 's Troops Are Southward Continuing ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH! WASHINGTON'. July IS Although there has been no formal agreement: yet between opposing factions in Mex-j i.'o an armistice is practically in effect j inrougiioiu the republic. Francisco Carhajal, Huerta's successor, has de cided to have the federal troops evacu ate all points where 1 lie revolutionists forces are concentrated to avoid further fighting. Carrmza's forces are mov ing southward merely to be in a posi tion to maintain order in the territory immediately surrounding the capital. This information reached officials here from various points in Mexico. Senor Jose Castellot of Mexico, person al representative of Caibajal, spoke of the evactuation of San Luis Potosi by federal forces as a manifestation of the good faith on the part of the Carbajal government toward the constitutional ists and its desire to bring about peace without further bloodshed. Until the commission appointed by Carbajal reaches Carranza, which is expected to be Monday or Tuesday, no definite de velopments relative to a further change in the government at Mexico City are looked for. The American government is bend ing every effort to bring about a peaceful agreement between the Car bajal government and the constituiion alists and is endeavoring to harmonize all the elements in Mexico, including the Zapata factions with the program of peace. Reports from Vera Cruz which said the ZaData forces were close enough to Mexico City to occupy it if they de sired, art borne out by official advices here. Lately, however, there has been an understanding between the constitu tionalist and Zapata forces relative to military operations, and no move is ex pected except as it may be sanctioned by Carranza. Information reached here today that the constitutionalists are preparing a program of reforms which it is be lieved will satisfy the Zapata forces. The prospects for a complete restoration of peace were considered bright by of ficials of the Washington government. -o OCCUPY GUAYMAS Constitutionalists Under Alvarado Take Possession at Daybreak ASSOCIATED PRESS DIBPATCHl DOUGLAS, July 18. Constitution alists ' under Alvarado occupied Guaymas at- daybreak, according to tinoflicial advices received here. Several hundred federal sympathiz ers have left Douglas within the week, and are said to be assembling in the mountains. An outbreak is expected. Entrance was made partly today because it was the anniversary of the death of Benito Juarez, who pro mulgated the Mexican constitution. The day was given over to festivi ties at Cliuiymas, and throughout So- nora public offices were closed. Memorial services were held in nearly all the towns. SUPPORTS ADAMSON BILL ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH 1 WASHINGTON, July 18 Majority Leader Underwood supported tlje Adamson general dam bill in a speech in the house today as protecting the public against monopolistic abuse. Fif ty years permit would be granted pri vate capital under the bill for develop ing water power projects. "My only fear" said Underwood, "is that while the rights of the public are protected it will not hold out suffi cient inducements to capital to encour age investment in such enterprises." The bill as originally proposed was assailed by. Representative Lenroot, re publican. He said the amendments would in a large measure meet his ob jections and announced his intention of supporting them. o CANT USE GUNBOATS f ASSOCIATED PRESS DIBPATCHl PUERTO MEXICO, July 18. The de parture of Huerta and his party may be delayed for several days, as Carba jal has refused to use the Mexican gunboats, saying he deemed it unwise to use them for such a purpose, but he stated the goverement would pay for the use of any vessel Huerta might charter. o WEATHER TODAY f ASSOCIATED PRESS OISPATCHl WASHINGTON, July 18.

Arizona conti United a large quota to the regiment I had the honor to command in the Spanish war; and moreover, owing to its advanced and liberal con stitution, Arizona stands in the forefront among the. progressive states. Therefore I frel that the fact that the Na tional Progres sive platform is Roosevelt not only progressive hut thoroughly constructive, and based on clear headed common sense, should peculi arly appeal to the people of your state. Fortunately you in Arizona under vonr rrinstitntinn mh Uinin.j n tl, ,(088 KVSt(im am Rub8titlltr, for it thoroughgoing control by the peo- pie. All that if the people shall necessary is be alive to that their needs. I earnestly wish that every voter in Arizona would read the Progres sive platform, for that is a real con tract with the people, a great con structive document based squarely upon the fundamental piinciples that must underlie our successful national life. AVe stand for the improvement of human welfare. We stand for social and industrial justice. We FINALLY FOUND Remains of Those Who Per ished in" the Battle With Miners on Fridav Are Discovered Woods in Nearliv associated PRESS DISPATCH"! FORT SMJTH, July IS. The bod ies of two mine guards were found in the woods near the Prairie Creek mine today. The men participated in the battle with miners Friday at the Bache-Denman mines. Accord- i ing to the affidavit of L. C. Thorn- j as. himself a mine guard and par ticipant in the battle, he ami six the employes left the mine while the fighting was at its height, and sought to break through the attack ers. The seven were captured, tak en to a log house in the woods and held for hours until two state of ficers arrived. Then one of the union men shot John Raskin, then as he fell, fired a shot at Clarence Sulz brrry, and sent a second bullet into his body as he fell. Counsel for the operators filed in the federal court information setting forth the violation of the federal in junction in the destruction of pro perty. The affidavit of Thomas was included, as well as the affidavit of S. L. Moore, superintendent of the Prairie Creek mine. Based on the affidavits and information, Federal Judge Youmans issued eight "war rants charging a. violation of the court injunction. No arrests had beeen made under the federal war rants tonight, but Judge Youmans announced he will remain in the chambers tonight ready to act if the prisoners are brought before him. Lon Norris, sheriff of Sebastian county, and Paul Little, states, at torney, spent the day investigating yesterday's affairs.

AFTER THE HINDUS Captain Ordered to Remove Beyond Three-Mile Limit Boat ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH VANCOUVER, July IS. After swearing in 2 lit) special police tonight immigration authorities went aboard the Komagata Maru and ordered the captain to remove his ship outside the three-mile territorial limit. Guarded by the police the? captain proceeded to get up steam. The Hindu passengers ' are in a menacing mood. The government has supplied them with provisions for the return trip, but informed them that if they interfere with the cap tain they will be refused all further supplies and be allowed to starve in the harbor. NO TRIALS; NO EXECUTIONS Colonel BODIES OF Ml m I N ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH MEXICO CITY, July 18. Accord ing to orders issued by Carbajal to the governors of states, and military chlel's no one in the future is to be executed without a proper trial. This means the re-establishment of the constitutional rights suspended bv Huerta- . .t.tilm 01 Sodifl Ami ImiwAM recognize that the economic prob lems affecting business men, wage worker and farmer alike must be. solved on substantially the same lines. It is utterly idle to talk of returning our industrial system to the conditions of the middle of the nineteenth century, with their unlimited competition between weak concerns. Co-operation has come to stay among business men, farmers and wage workers alike. "We must recognize the need of combination in business, and control it and regulate it in the spirit of common sense, not hysteria. I'nder the present national administration not one thing has been done to help in the solution of the business problems of the country. On the contrary, the tariff has been so handled as to. hurt the small man and not the big man. The cost of living has increased instead of de creasing, as we were promised would be the case, and no real progress of any kind has been made in the kind of regulation of big business which will encourage the honest man, and at the same time control any con cern which seeks in improper fash ion to obtain advantages at the ex pense of wage workers, or of the smaller rivals, or the general public. The problem, can be solved only along the lines of the Progressive platform. There is as much need now as there was two years ago to refuse to permit yourselves to be misled by the reactionary machine bosses in this country, no matter to which UNION VESPER SERVICES ON Y. M.

The fire was confined to the engine rooms near the oil tanks of the steamer, an oil-burning craft. There was no panic among the passengers. but for convenience in fighting the flames they were marshaled for the time being in two groups one at the stern and the other near the bow of the vessel. When the fire broke out clouds of smoke began to shoot up from the I mast, and fire boats and other crafts put out to her assistance. The steamer did not stop her engines, however, and her own men, assisting the fite crafts fought the blaze as she steamed up East River. Before she reached Hell Gate the fire was out and she proceeded on her trip. WAR ON REDLIGHT Mixup of Police Branches May End i Chicago's Segregated District ASSOCIATED TRESS DISPATCH CHICAGO, July 18 The wiping out of the last remnants of Chicago's seg regated district is promised as the re sult of a(pistol battle there Thursday night, in which one detective was killed and two policemen and two citizens shot. The beginning of two investi gations into the tragedy was marked by State's Attorney Hoyne's charge that the police version of the shooting was untrue. The police had arrested ttvo squads of detectives and plain clothes men who did not recognize each other and lost their heads. The state's attorney who also declared the facts had been suppressed, sent his own men into the district to make a complete report. "There are several phases in , this shocking and lamentable occurrance which, in my judgment, warrant close investigation by your honorable body," he told the court. The renewal of the war on vice in the district has been marked by several raids. This afternoon several squads of police visited several houses and finding them vacant, broke up the fur niture, tore out telephones and made the places uninhabitable. of the old parties they may nominal ly hold allegiance. I earnestly hope that not only the members of the Progressive party in Arizona, but all men of genuinely progressive spirit, whether they are found in the rank and file of the democratic or the republican parties, will join together in this election. We are fighting the battle of the people of the United States, and we ara pledged to a continuance of the contest to show the determined fighting spirit, the staying qualities, and the uncompromising devotion to principle, which are necessary in so great a cause. I wish also to see the Piogressives of Arizona win with the help of all decent citizens, whether progressive democrats or progressive republicans, in order to emphasize popular dis approval of the deplorable foreign policy of the present administration which has caused our people such loss of life and property and such humiliation in Mexico, and which has culminated in the really criminal proposal to pay 2r,,00o,00O blackmail to Colombia. There is urgent need of a firm American polity in foreign affairs in order that the American citizen, and the flag which should protect the American citizen may be rcstoied to international respect. With hearty good wishes. Sincerely yours (Signed) THKODORE ROOSEVELT Mr. Dwight B. Heard, Phoenix. Arizona.

Responding to Call of Chair man C. rred Brackett, Leaders and Workers of New Party Hold Enthu siastic Meeting MESSAGES OF ENCOURAG EM EXT Committee vf Twenty-five Will Be Appointed to Draft List of Candidates for a Complete Maricopa County Ticket If any doubt had previously existed in the mind of any one as to what course of action the progressives of Maricopa county would take in tho coming campaign, it was dispelled yes terday afternoon, when, at a meeting that filled the K. of P. hall, it wan unanimously decided that a committee of twenty-five be appointed at once to draft a list of candidates for a full county ticket. Messages of encourage ment from Col. Theodore Roosevelt and other progressive leaders east ami west interspersed with ringing speeches by members of the party here, empha sized the fact that the progressives of the nation are one in their determina tion to stand by their platform in tho battle for social and industrial justice. A number of women were present .it the meeting, which was held at the call of County Chairman C. Fred Brackett, and called to order by Oapt. J. I.. B. Alexander, chairman of the state progressive committee. Frank H. Parker was elected to the chair, and called on P. H. Hayes, who outlined what had been done since tho last meeting, and told of the proposal that the progressives meet the repub licans half-way in working for a non partisan ticket at the next election. He said that a number of members of thp progressive party had been willing to forego the advantages of a straight ticket, if thereby the tax-payers and the general good of the people would be served, and told how this proposal had been rejected by those in control of the republican organization. Capt. J. L. B. Alexander, chairman of the state committee, was the next speaker. In a rousing speech, he called attention to the necessity for a change in the present state administration, and explained how the proposal to join, forces in a non-partisan movement had arisen, and of the determination of the old line organization to over-rule even the desire of the rank and file of re publican voters, and retain their hold on the party. In conclusion he prom ised that a full progressive state ticket would be in the field, and that a list of candidates would be announced in the near future. Dwight B. Heard told of a recent visit to Col. Roosevelt at the progres sive headquarters in New York, which were crowded with men from all parts of the country. Among them were many newspaper men, who were unani mous in their report that the progres sive party is already much stronger than a few months ago, and steadily growing in power. He then read a let ter from Col. Roosevelt to the progres sives of Maricopa county and telegrams of greeting from Senator Beveridge of Indiana and Governor Hiram Johnson of California, all of which were re ceived with enthusiasm. In a ringing speech, that was fro quently interrupted by bursts of ap plause. If. B. Wilkinson pointed out that the republican bosses are still in control of that party, and that any party that is led by. an organization that ignores the will of the people Is doomed to failure. He emphasized the fact that there are many regardless of political affiliation who are looking for a party that will work for the people and express their will, and that tho progressive party is the only one that can be said to meet this need. At tho conclusion of hi.s speech, he suggested the embodiment of a plank in the state platform stating that the progressive party is opposed to any business that preys upon the appetites and passions of our fellowmen.
