TRIAL BECOMES POLITICAL CAUSE Monotony is Broken by Threatened Personal En counters Between Defend ant's Husband and Some Witnesses ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH! PARIS, July 22. Joseph Caillaux, former premier of France, was again the central figure in the court where Mme. Henrietta Caillaux. his wife, is on trial for the killing o Gaston Cai mette, editor of the Le Figaro. In stead of the presentation of the diplo matic secret documents, politically crushing Caillaux, as was intimated by the prosecution yesterday, there was triumph for Caillaux when the govern ment admitted in open court that such documents did not exist. When M. Labori, counsel for the de fense, said he would consider the in cident closed, M. Chenu, the brilliant attorney for the Calmette family, re plied: "The incident is closed with satisfac tion to Caillaux, but to my mind it is nothing but a clever diversion staged to transform a criminal trial into a political cause, and ending by giving Caillaux a certificate of disinterested patriotism." When M. Chenu declared it did not become M. Caillaux to endeavor to soil the grave which his wife had made, the ex-premier sprang forward and exclaimed: ' Since I must take notice of what this lawyer has said, I ask him if he will take personal responsibility for his words." When the uproar subsided. M. Chenu replied: I take entire responsibilits'. You cannot menace me here." Politics whs tile predominating fac tor today 'In the trial. The French government Is under stood to be concerned in regard to the diplomatic documents mentioned at yesterday's hearing as being in the possession of the assassinated editor. It was said that these documents were later handed to President Poin care, who passed them to the foreign office. Joseph Caillaux "and Ferdi nand Labori. the latter counsel for the defense, demanded that the documents be produced in court. When court convened the procura tor general said: "I am authorized by the government to declare that the documents referred to in yesterday's testimony are only pretended copies of documents which do not exist." After an exchange between Labori and Charles Chenu, the attorney rep resenting Le Figaro and Calmette's heirs, the procurator general exclaim ed that the honor and patriotism of Caillaux was unstained. George Pres tat. brother-in-law of Calmette and chairman of Le Figaro company, de nied that Le Figaro had been in the pay of foreign banks. - Maitre Chenu Raid: "I'll add that it is not becoming of Caillaux to come here In an endea vor to soil the grave his wife has made." An exciting scene followed until the judge called for order. August Avril, political editor of Le Figaro, declared that early in Novem ber. 1913 M. Caillaux stopped him in the lobby of the chamber of deputies and asked how much longer Calmette was going to continue his campaign. M. Caillaux said to him: "You know I am a crack shot. I go every day to the shooting gallery and get a bull's eye every time." The ex-premier leaped to his feet and demanded that he be confronted with the witness. The two stood face to face at the bar. M. Caillaux affirm ed that he had no recollection of ever having said such a thing: M. Avril Continued on Page Three) Trying To Keep Carranza And Villa In Harmony AasOCIATIO PRESS DISPATCHl EL PASO, July 22. George Car others, special representative of the ntate department will leave tomorrow morning for Chihuahua City to con fer with Villa regarding the fear of official Washington that the Car-ranza-Villa estrangement will again break out. It was learned today that Villa re cently reiterated that his difficulty with the commander In chief patched up at the Torreon confer ence would not affect his action in any degree. An order was issued' to day . by Villa for all officers of his division to report at once to their posts. The official version of the order was that It was preparatory to PIMA, COCHISE, PINAL, SANTA CRUZ AND OTHERS FIRML Y AGAINST FUSION Despite Efforts of Hubbell and Morrison Pima Coun ty Progressives Unanim ously Refuse Any Amal gamation BISBEE HOLDS ROUSING MEETING Resolution is Adopted Fav oring Straight Progres sive State Ticket and Also Full Cochise County Ticket for Fall Elections I NO AMALGAMATION Tucson, July 22, 1914.

The progress- ives by unanimous vote absolute- ly refused to enter into such an j agreement. In 1912 the prog- ressives beat the republcans in Pima county, nearly two to one and they' can see no sense or reason in going back to the weaker party.

J COCHISE STANDS FIRM BISBEE, July 22. A lousing meeting was held here tonight of the Cochise county progressive leaders, and a resolution was un animously adopted favoring a straight progressive state ticket and also a full progressive county ticket for Cochise county. There was much enthusiasm and ,the meeting was thoroughly repre sentative. Addresses were de livered by Messrs. Nathan, Lyon, Hicks, Roff and others. Cochise will offer progressive candidates for the corporation commission, mine inspector and secretary of state. DWIGHT B. HEARD. Pima and Cochise counties have refused to listen to the siren calls of the standpat leaders of the Re publican pa.-ty to amalgamate with them for the purposes of the county elections and have decided to put full county tickets in the field bearing the party emblem and carrying with them a strong endorsement of prog ressive principles. This news follows close on the heels of despatches re ceived from Yuma in Phoenix yester day to the effect that the progress ives in that county have taken the republican name for the county tick et, but will w.-ite the platform and practically run the election. However the agreement entered in to between the progressives and re publicans in Yuma county carries with it the endorsement of Theodore Roosevelt for president in 1916. Immediately following this action steps were taken by J. L. Hubbell and R. E. Mor.'ison to take into the fold, on the same sort of an agree ment both the progressives of Pima end Santa Cruz counties. The Pima county progressives however were were alive to the situation and re fused to consider the proposition, putting the Santa Cruz progressives wise to the proposal at the same time. Soon afte-.- the attempt became known in Fima yesterday, and fol lowing the news of the Yuma coun ty action, T. K. Marshall, of Pima county, chairman of the county com mittee there, telephoned to Phoenix that the feeling of Pima county progressives was against any amal gamation along the lines of the the movement south of Villa's forces to participate in the union of ail re volutionary troops before moving to Mexico City. Villa's departure for a week's visit to his old home in the mountains of western Chihuahua did not indicate that he would move soon for the south. Officials of all parties expressed the belief that the trouble hetween the two leaders and the factions they represent will not break out at least until after the occupation of the na tional capital. They expressed doubt, however, over the results of the at tempted reconstruction of the na tion's business affairs after the last four years of almost continual war- i far.-. ...... ASQUITH RESPONSIBLE FOR KING'S SPEECH LONDON, July 22 A more hopeful feeling prevails' tonight with regard to the home rule conferences for which the king is sponsor. Premier Asquith's as surance to parliament in which he assumed full responsibility for the king's speech, declared that no constitutional precedent has been contravened, allayed much angry feeling among the liberals, or at least transferred it from the king to the premier himself. Gunther Says He Did Not Assault Harbor Master Tassociated press dispatch CHRISTIANIA, July 22. Franklin B. Gunther, secretary of the Ameri can legation gave a statement to the Associated Press regarding the al legation made by the Norwegian pa pers that he had assaulted the har bor master at Christiania several days ago, when that official ordered the steam yacht Pauline, on which Gunther was guest, to shift her an chorage. "The occurrence in question grew out apparently of the great anger and' violent attitude of the Nor wegian harbor police official," said Gunther in his statement, because the English yacht was anchored in a certain location in the harbor. My sole connection with the affair was that I insisted that an American in valid lady on board should not be frightened and insulted by the con duct of the official. There was no physical clash. Statements to that effect are absolutely false." PICNIC TRAIN IN CRASH Four Are Killed and Many Injured In Head-on Collision 'associated press mspatchI ' WEST POUT, Conn., July 22. Three persons were killed - outright another died later, and twenty-one were injured, some seriously, in a head-on collision tonight between a three-car trolley train carrying 279 Sunday school picnickers with a trolley freight. All the dead are residents of Bridgeport. None of the injured it is believed are in a critical condi tion. According to Dr. Frank Pow ers, the town medical examiner, the motorman of the picnic train put on all speed down hill in an endeavor to reach a siding before the arrival of the freight, which he knew was coming. The brakes were not set. COMPLIMENTS FOR SHARP Resigns from Congress to Become Ambassador to France tASSOCIATID PRES8 DISPATCH WASHINGTON, July 24. The re signation . from congress of Repre sentative William G. Sharp of Ohio, recently appointed ambassador to France, was announced in a letter to Speaker Clark. Sharp got a round of applause when he appeared on the floor and Republican Leader Mann remarked: "I do not always approve the ap pointments of the president of the United States, but we can all join in complimenting and congratulating the president on his selection of one of the ablest men in this house as ambassador to France." o HINDUS WANT MORE ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH VANCOUVER, July 22. The Hin dus aboard the Komagata Maru sent ashore a long letter to immigration of ficials refusing to allow the boat to sail at 5 o'clock this morning unless a number of things were done for them. They complained about the food. Thousands of dollars' worth of provis ions w-ere put aboard today, but the Hindus want more. Yuma compact and last night a joint meeting was held at Tucson between the progressives and the two repub licans who are touring the state in the interests of amalgamation, with the result that by a unanimous vote the proposition of Messrs. Hubbell and Morrison was turned down cold. In the meantime a meeting was held at Bisbee for the purpose o lining up the progressives in the big square county of Cochise, and as a result the progressives there went squarely on record as did their brothers at Tucson, against any amalgamation. They went further. adding that in addition to a full county ticket the Cochise county progressives would offer three mem bers for the progressive state ticket Telephone advices from other counties in the state, notably Pinal county, indicate that the feeling of the majority of progressives is against any sort of union which will even jeopardize In the slightest de gree the name progressive or the principles for which the party stands. Enthusiasm is ripe in Pinal, Co chise and Pima counties for the progressive cause and It is conceded even among democrats that the progressives will elect in these coun ties some of the men they put up. ARMISTICE IS SPED, PEACE IS IN SIGHT Announcement is Made That Agreement is Reached Be tween Constitutionalists and the Carbajal Gov ernment , ROJAS TROOPS IN REVOLT Extraordinary Precautions Are to Be Taken by the Customs Officials to Pre vent Smuggling Arms Across the Border associated press dispatch! MEXICO CITY, July 22 That an armistice between the government and the constitutionalists was signed to night, and that hostilities will be sus pended at once throughout the coun try, is the statement given out by Gen eral Eduardo Iturbide, governor of the federal district, in the name of Carba jal. Iturbide added that the peace ne gotiations will be advanced upon a basis giving full guarantees to every body. General Antonio Rojas, former revo lutionary loader, who later became a federal chief, revolted with 200 troops at Tacubaya, a suburb. A detachment of the Nineteenth regiment was sent in pursuit and routed Rojas and his men in the Santa Ke hills. Fifty mu tineers were captured and brought here tonight under a heavy guard. Ro jas and Colonel Alatriste, with about 100 men escaped, closely followed by government troops. Officials of the Mexican railway announced tonight the gap in the railway line outside of Vera Cruz has been repaired and an ordinary passenger train will leave here at 7 o'clock tomorrow morning, to make the trip direct to Vera Cruz. Za pata is making no progress toward the capital, Against Smuggling WASHINGTON, July 22. Extra ordinary precaution against smuggling of arms and ammunition across the Mexican border has been ordered by the treasury- department. With an open break in the constitutionalists' ranks threatening, the American gov ernment is determined to prevent the accumulation in the northern territory of a supply of war munitions which might be used in a counter revolution. Collectors of customs along the bor der are directed by an order to exer cise unceasing vigilance; to have every car and vehicle crossing the border searched and to give particular atten tion to tank cars. If these precau tions prove unavailing, it is understood the government may resort to formal embargo proclamation similar to the one issued by Taft and rescinded later by Wilson. A few days after the occupation of Vera Cruz, when Carranza assumed rather a belligerent attitude toward the army, treasury orders against the exportation of arms were issued. It is an open secret, however, that within the past few- months enormous quan tities of munitions have been shipped into Mexico. Predict Triumphal Entry VICTORIA, Tnmaulipas, July SJ. Direct telegraphic communication be tween Mexico City and Carranza has been opened here. Officers with Car ranza declared that a triumphal en try of the constitutionalists into Mex ico City without bloodshed is tow assured. Carranza is here en route to Tampico. Robles Doininguez. confidential agent of the constitutionalists in Mexico City asked for instructions, but Carranza's reply was not made public. It is to Dominguez that Diaz turned over the government during the time between his departure for Europe and the entry of Mailero. Constitutionalist officials here think the Carranza-Carbajal negotiations will be brief and that Carranza will enter the capital with little delay. The first chiefs journey to Tam pico was not continued because of the pressure of business. There was a general feeling of rejoicing as the impression prevailed that fighting in the present movement in Mexico is at an end. It is understood every precaution will be taken by Carranza and Carbajal to prevent disorder in the capital. Manuel Walls, confidential agent of the Spanish government, now in El Paso, was notified by Carranza that he will be received to discuss iir foimally affairs in Mexico affecting his countrymen. Hitherto all com munications Horn me powers nave been transmitted to the constitution alists through the United States. While Walls' unofficial visit does not entail recognition by Spain, his gov ernment is the first to make such a request. Peace it Not Assured WASHINGTON, July 22. Peace in Mexico is far from assured and com plications both internal and interna tional are rapidly entangling the situ ation, administration officials, diplo mat and Mexicans of both factions here believe.

Bill (Special to The Republican) WASHINGTON, July 22 Rejecting amendments proposing to charge in terest on deferred payments for rec lamation construction work, the house of representatives today waded through sections one and two of the "reclamation extension bill" and passed them. The other thirteen sec tions will be considered next Wed nesday, when, according to Represen tative Carl Hayden of Arizona, the bill will be passed as a whole. Senate Bill 4fi28 was introduced by M. A. Smith, of Arizona, on February 28, 1914, and referred to the com mittee on irrigation and reclamation of arid lands. On March 4, it was reported a second time by Mr. Smith with amendments, and shortly after ward passed. The rejection of amendments charging interest on the deferred payments by the house, leads to the belief that the bill will now go through without any further change. It has first place on the calendar of Wednesday, July 29. The first two sections, which were passed by tho house today read as follows: Re it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Con gress assembled. That any person whose lands hereafter become sub ject to the terms and conditions of tlie Act approved June seventeenth, nineteen hundred and two, entitled "An Act appropriating the receipts from the sale and disposal of public li.nds in certain States and Terri tories to the construction of irriga tion works for the reclamation of i'rid lands," and Acts amendatory thereof or supplementary thereto, hereafter to be referred to as the reclamation law, and any person who In Formal Statement For mer President Endorses Republican Candidate for Empire State Executive at Primaries (associated press dispatch! OYSTER HAY, July 22. Colonel Roosevelt in a formal statement en dorses the candidacy of Ex-Senator Harvey D. Hinman, of Ringhamton, for the gubernatorial nomination at the republican primaries. In the statement Roosevelt calls upon "all good citizens of all parties to overthrow Barnes and Murphy. 1 have a duty to the nation. I stand for the principles of the national pro gressive platform, and therefore, shall oppose the policies of the r'resent ad ministration, which I regard as deeply injurious alike to the honor and the interests of the American people. "But in this state the prime duty is for a eood citizens' movement, a uni ted movement to save the state from the bi-partisan control of Messrs. Barnes and Murphy, precisely like the good citizens' movement last year, when by union the city of New York was saved from the domination of Mr. Murnhv. I hope with all my heart that all independent citizens, progress ives, republicans and democrats, in their national affiliation, will stand shoulder to shoulder for a clean non partisan government in the state at large this fall." "In New York state we see at its worst, the development of the system of bi-partisan boss rule. The outcome of this system is that invisible govern ment which the progressive party in a large part is found to oppose. It is im possible to secure the economy and social and industrial reform to which we are pledged until the invisible gov ernment of party bosses, working through an alliance between crooked business and crooked politics, is root ed out of our governmental system." o MISS FAULEY LOSES Phoenix Woman Not to Share In Eastman's Estate ASSOCIATED PRESS BlSPATCHl OLYMPIA, Wash., July 22.

CLAYTON BILL Senate Resumes Considera tion of Interstate Trade Commission Measure Brandeis Plans to Appeal to President f ASSOCIATED PRSS8 DISPATCH! WASHINGTON, July 22 Upon in- sistence by Senator Borah, the senate , today resumed consideration of the In- ; terstate Trade commission bill, the first of the administration anti-trust! I legislative measures. Earlier in the I day the revised Clayton bill to supple- j ment the Sherman act. was reported from the judiciary committee, but the Interstate Commerce committee, after an all-day session, was still not quite ready with a perfected measure to regulate the issuance of securities by common carriers. The securities bill is practically completed to the satisfaction of the majority, and a new print of the re vised text, made public, after the com mittee had yielded to Louis D. Bran deis, one of its advisers, incorporated 'a section which would make it unlaw- any new lines without authority given by the Interstate Commerce Commis sion. Tirandeis and George Rubles of New York, both of whom have worked with the committee for many weeks, objected strenuously to the scope of the supervisory authority given the Interstate Commerce commission in the Newlands bill, and they plan to make an appeal to the president tomor row. The experts object to the terms of the bill, which they maintain would amount to a federal guaranty of rail road securities over stock issues. As agreed upon tentatively, to be re viewed by the Interstate Commerce committee tomorrow, the Newlands bill would give the Interstate Commerce commission authority to approve or disapprove the issuance of securities by carriers for "construction, exten sion, enlargement, betterment, main tenance or equipment of its railroad or facilities." etc. or for "lawful acquisi- (Continued on Pago Three) REPORTED OUT Of COMMITTEE Uncle Sam May Intervene To Restore Peace In Haiti ASSOCIATED PRESS DISFATCHl WASHINGTON, July 22. Pressed by the European powers the I'nited States government has about lost patience with the various elements in the republic of Haiti, San Domingo and will demand the restoration of peace on the threat of armed in tervention. Secretary Bryan will con fer with Secretary Daniels about the possible movement of marines into Haiti. Already large discretion ary orders have been given Captain Russel of the battleship South Caro lina, now at Cape Haitien, but final decision as to whether force is to be used by the American , government has been deferred. Reports from Cape Haitien of further fighting with added danger to foreigners is regarded as fore casting prompt action by the marines SOLID SOUTH S BREAK BEGINS IN LOUISIANA Ken lt in Third Congres sional District Carries to the Progressive Party Many of the Most Influ ential Democrats SPLIT SPREADING THROUGH STATE It is Expected That Loui siana Will Elect Three Pr gressive Congressmen and Will Take Its Place in Progressive Column (New York Sun's Washington Cor respondence.) Democratic leaders from the south were stunned today by tiie news re ceived from the third Louisiana dis tiict, where yesterday the demo cratic congressional committee went over to the Bull Moose party in a body. Louisiana democrats are out of tune with the Wilson administra tion and ripe for a revolt. The split in, the third' district is expect ed to extend throughout the state and may result in the election of three progressive members from Louisiana. Another development which great tlv grieved democratic leaders was the announcement that George K. Kindel, a democratic member of the house from Colorado, has quit the democratic party and will in future operate in politics as an independ ent. The leaders in the progressive movement in Louisiana are all rep resentative men who have hereto fore affiliated with the democrats. They are W. H. Price, L. C. Rogers, Edwin Broussard, John Marks, Sam uel Le Blanc and W. T. Petcrman. Senator-elect Broussard of Louisi ana, a democrat who at present rep resents the disaffected third district in the house, testifies to the charac ter of the men who have deserted the democratic party ou the tariff issue. "I have not been home since the first of the year and have no idea how far reaching the revolt It," said Mr. Broussard. "My information Is faulty because I was not consulted by those who made the anti-democratic demonstration at home yester day, but I can tell you who the men are who have left our party so summarily. "Mr. Price is a brother of my predecessor in the house. He has managed all of my campaigns. He has been a member of the democratic committee for twenty- five years. "Mr. Rogers is a sugar planter. Mr. Broussard is my youngest brother. Mr. Marks has for sixteen years N been a state senator and a member of the democratic state committee. Mr. Pi ice and Mr. Marks have quit thu state committee as well as the district committee. Mr. LeBlane is a member of the state legislature. Mr. Pcterman is sheriff of St. Marjr's parish. They are the active ifen crats of the third district and the best organizers in that section of Louisiana. "V - Other Louisiana demoeiuts declare that the movement for the destruc tion of the democratic party is bound to sweep over the state. The third district leads the revolt, It was explained her today, because the democratic sugar tariff has caused 'ruin to the industry in that section. The rice and lurtober industries also have been hard lilt in Louisiana. "Eight months ago there were nine democratic candidates for the nom ination for congress in the third dis trict to succeed Bob Broussard and today they are all members of the progressive patty," said a Louisiana democrat today. "E. A. Pharr, su gar planter and man of affairs, was groomed for the republican nomina tion.

There are now more than 500 marines at Guantanamo or on the American warships In Haitien and Dominican waters. Reinforce ments if need be could be drawn from Vera Cruz and the Mexican gulf waters.
