WOULD DISMISS
ACTION AGAINST
HARRY WHEELER
Prosecutor French Surprises
Defense With Offer To
Drop Case Of Former
Cochise Sheriff Captain
Bound Over To Superior
Court On Own Request.
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
DOUGLAS, Ariz, Sept. 15. Harry
C. Wheeler, sheriff of Cochise county
at the time of the deportations that
followed the I. W. W. trouble In Bis
hee in July, 1917, was this afternoon.
upon his own request bound over for
trial before the superior court on a
charge of kidnaping filed against him
two months ago as the result of his
part in the deportations. During the
war Wheeler served as a captain in the
aviation section overseas. Develop
ments at the opening of the hearing of
Wheeler this afternoon were rapid.
Before any witnesses bad been sworn,
counsel for Wheeler waived prelimi
nary hearing aud requested that
Wheeler be bound over to the superior
court.
County Attorney Robert N. French,
who is conducting the posecution In
the deportation cases, arose and an
nounced that he had Intended to re
quest the court to dismiss the charge
against the former sheriff. Testimony
in previous hearings, he said, had
failed to indicate that Wheeler had any
connection with the deportations.
"V do not want the charge dis
missed." replied Wheeler's attorney;
"p concede that Harry Wheeler was
present in the Warren district during
the deportations and was doing his
duty as sheriff at that time. It is Mr.
Wheeler's own request that he be
bound OTer to the superior court for
trial, anj we insist that a Jury decide
whether the charge is unfounded or
true."
The county attorney offered no fur
ther objections and the case went over.
Although he had-stated that there
was no evidence to show Sheriff
Wheeler's connection with the deporta
tions, the county attorney's first wit
ness In the case that followed, that of
County'Commlssioner John J. Bowen,
testified that Bowen had stopped him
in Bisbee on July 12, 1917, and turned
him over to Sheriff Wheeler who, the
witness testified, took him by the arm,
placed him in a line of men who were
being deported and refused to release
htm until several hours later. Bowen
was also bound over for trial after but
two witnesses for the state had hoen
examined. The testimony of the sec
ond witness was to the effect that he
had seen Bowen marching at the rear
of a group of armed men on the day
of the deportations.
five other defendants. John Picker
ing, Kd Dickinson, Ike Stafford. Tom
Maddern and W. G. Higgins, all War
ren district miners, were bound over
this afternoon. Their hearings were
held Jointly, and they waived further
examination after but one witness for
the state had been examined.
The county attorney's statement that
he had Intended dismiss the case
.against Wheeler came as a surprise.
Wheeler has repeatedly taken all re
sponsibility for the deportations, which
he conducted personally after having
sworn in 1,200 Bisbee and 1,000 Douglas
citizens as deputies the night before
the day of the deportations. On the
morning of July 12, 1917, Wheeler is
sued a proclamation from the sheriffs
office, which was followed by the de
portations. The proclamation closed
with the following:
"I therefore call upon all loyal
Americans to aid me In peaceably ar
resting these disturbers of our national
and local peace. Let no shot be fired
throughout this day unless in neces
sary self-defense, and I hereby give
warning that each and every leader of
the so-called strikers will be held per
sonally responsible for any Injury In
flicted upon any of my deputies while
in the performance of their duties aa
deputies in my posse, for whose acts,
I in turn, assume full responsibility as
sheriff of thfs county."

London Accepts Bullit's Story As
True Account Of Paris Happenings
LONDON, Sept. 15 With the exception of two or
three anti-government newspapers, London journals gave
scant attention this morning to the testimony given by
William C. Bullitt before the foreign relations committee
of the United States senate. , . .
The Daily News gives great prominence to the story
and in its editorial comment accepts Mr. Bullitt's story as
the true account of what happened at Paris and cites
Premier Lloyd George's "statement before the house of
commons on April 18 when he virtually denied knowl
edge of Mr. Bullitt's mission to Russia.
The Herald, labor .organ, says:
"Mr. Bullitt's blunt facts will have a devastating ef
fect," adding that if Premier Lloyd George cannot clear
, himself from charges made by Mr. Bullitt, he must resign.
LEAGUE COVENANT
IS "GIGANTIC TRUST
OF WAR" SA YS HIRAM
Treaty Means That Ameri
can Power and Treasure
And Blood Will Guar
antee Security Of Posses
sions By Italy, France,
England And Japan He
Avers.
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
DE3 MOINES. Sept. 15. In two ad
dresses delivered here tonight, Senator
Hiram W. Johnson of California de
scribed the league of nations covenant
as " a gigantic war trust."
The principal meeting was held in
the Coliseum, the largest hall in tho
city, where President Wilson spoke a
week ago. The big hall was crowded
and Senator Johnson was given an
enthusiastic reception.
Occupying seats on the stage were:
Mayor Thomas Fairweather, W. C.
Ramsey, secretary ot state; E. N. Hoyt,
state treasurer and C. A. Rawson, re
publican state chairman.
Breeders of Bolshevism
"When men in power violate the con
stitution they are breeders of bol
shevism," said Senator Johnson.
"This meance is bred in the breasts
of mothers whose sons were drafted to
fight against Germany but were shot
down in Russia, a country with which
the United States is not at war.
"I do not fear bolshevism in this
country. I have too much faith in the
common sense ot the American people.
I "The only kind of wars you are go
ing to stop under the league of nations
are England's wars with America's
blood," Senator Johnson said.
! VCanntnt William V Rnrah n f THahn
was to have spoken here with Senator
Johnson, but he sent a telegram from
Chicago statin? that he had been called
back to Washington to participate in
the senate debate on the peace pact.
Senator Johnison was the guest of
the Grant club at 6 o'clock tonight
where he made a brief address.
His principal address was delivered
later at the Coliseum, arranged under
the auspices of . the League for the
Preservation of American Independ
ence. He was Introduced by W. E. Miller,
a republican, local head of the organ
ization. Senator Johnson was obliged
to cancel his engagement for Sioux
City, Iowa, September 17. because of
inability to make railroad connections
and substituted Lincoln, Nebraska, for
that date.
"We fought a righteous war and
won." said Senator Johnson. "With
! our might and our treasure we determ
I ined to destroy ruthless militarism and
it was done. In the peace, we would
I make it impossible for this monster
ever again to threaten this world.
. Treaty Only a Mock
"The victory of the United States
means neither territory nor reparation.
It should mean the triumph of our
loud-trumpeted ideals for civilization,
for the rights of small rations, for self
determination, for democracy. I:
means that England, France. Italy and
Japan are granted huge territories, vast
number of peoples. Immense national
gain. The burden must be borne of
protecting and safeguarding these
enormous allied gains. The question is,
and the league of nations squarely pre
sents it. who shall bear the burden?
Shall the burden rest upon the gain
ers, those who made a mock of self
determination of the right of weak peo
ples, of all our high-sounding idealism,
or shall the burden, at the command
of one who was a part to the mockery,
be thrust upon the only non-profiting
nation, the United States?
"The sole reason, whispered in fear,
or ominously hissed to create fear in
the rest of us, why the United States
should become the world's guarantor
and underwrite the rape of China and
the partition of thousands of square
miles of territory and the transfer of
millions of human beings to England,
France, Italy and Japan, is that by
doing so the possibility of future wars
will be minimized, and there be a
greater sense of security in the posses
sion by England. France. Italy and
Japan of their newly acquired peoples
and territories.
Talked Much Did Little
"But this argument in its last analy
sis means that the United States power
and treasure and blood will do for
England, France. Italy and Japan what
otherwise they would be compelled to
do for themselves. It means not the
end of discontent or the cessation of
war, for peoples held in cruel subjec
tion like the Koreans or Chinese will
ever be striving for their liberty and
the self-determination for which we
talked so much and did so little. It
means that the great democracy of the
world our country must not onlv
continue a party to the denial of these
people s rights whenever they are as
serted, but to our diplomatic denial
we will add denial economically and
by force of arms too.
T am not quarreling that our allies
make Germany pay the full price,"
continued Senator Johnson.
"I do quarrel with requiring our
treasure and our blood for all time in
the future to preserve the spoils of
war to England, France, Italy and
Japan under secret bargains, which in
bad faith were concealed from us dur
ing the war. During the war, we,
properly and rightly, made every sac
rifice. We are demanding now, at its
close, none of its spoils, but in the
name of America, let us at least re
fuse to be treated as part of the spoils.
Out of the war Great Britain comes
with a supremacy of the sea unques
tioned. By the treaty she has a fourth
of the earth's surface and an over
whelmingly preponderance of the peo
ples of the earth. Great Britain
proudly contemplates out of this peace
a British world. Shall we, who neither
ask nor get anything from the peace,
guarantee this British world with our I
wealth and our man power? France
and Italy and Japan emerged with ter
ritories beyond the wildest dreams of
their statesmen and it is demanded
that America shall underwrite all their
Immense accessions.
"We have been told by the president
'that we must now by this league ot
nations make the supreme sacrifice
and throw in our fortunes with the
rest of the world. Why? The very
query evokes from league enthusiasts
immediate and angry retort and, wl.:'.e
they will not enlighten us, thej hint
darkly at our motives and -,.ny even
our good faith. Occasionally w?e hear
that we have at last entered upon a
world career, that we have become a
part of the world politics and that we
can not now either withdraw from the
course into which the war drew us, or
desert the world which so needs us.
In the language of a famous editor of
the west 'all of this is important if
true, but it by no means esta.bli.shes
that we must surrender our cherished
position or our loved ideals by becom
ing a party to the sordid quarrels and
the diplomatic duplicity of Europe and
Asia. The United States will play her
proud part in the world in the future
as she has done In the past a part
prouder because based upon American
principles and American ideals. It did
not require secret treaties and
stealthy bartering of unwilling peoples '
to make our nation play her part in the
war; it does not require the guaranty
of secret treaJies and bargaining and
bartering of unwilling peoples to have
the nation play its part after the war.
Throwing In our fortune with the
fortunes of the rest of the world, means
with our altruistic brethren throwing
our fortunes to the rest of the world,
that the rest, of the world may do with
our donation as it sees fit. Gladly will
we do what duty commands and hu
manity and civilization may require,
but that duty can be better done, our
obligations to humanity and civiliza
tion belter fulfilled in the high posi
tion of the world's greatest democracy
than in the subordinate position of the
least consequential of a quintuple al
liance, or as one of many bound irre
vocably to the guarantee of the many's
power and territories.
"This is not a league of nations to
prevent war. It is a league of armed
nations in a gigantic trust. In its very
creation it has been stripped of every
Idealistic purpose it ever had. It con
tains within itself the germs of many
wars, and worse than that, it rivets, as
in the Shantung decision, the chains ot
tyranny upon millions of people and
cements for all time unjust and wicked
annexations. It is a great world
economic trust, wherein a few men sit
ting in secret may control the econo
mic destinies of peoples. It is not a
league of people, nor does it anywhere
concern itself with people whose past
wrongs and future rights were so elo
quently portrayed by the president. It
is a trust of existing present power.
It will never prevent war, it will sanc
tify power in a new, a terrible, and
sinister sense."

WILSON'S VIEWS
1 PEACE PACT
Asserts League Of Nations ;
Carries Out Points Asj
Suggested By Senator)
Lodge Will Fight Opon-;
ents To Bitter End Talks j
Of Senate Conference.
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
PORTLAND, Ore.. Sept. 15. yuot
ing from an address made in 1915 by
Senator Lodge, chairman of the senate
foreign relations committee, suggest
ing that rations must unite as men
unite to preserve peace, President Wil
son told a Portland audience tonight
that the league of nations covenant
carried out what Mr. Lodge had bua-
gested. It was the first time during
his speaking tour that Mr. Wilson had j
mentioned by name any of the senators!
opposing the league. j
"I entirely concur in Senator Lodge'
declaration," the president said.
The president's words were greeted
with laughter and cheers by an audi
ence which packed the Municipal au
ditorium, said to accommodate more
than 7,000.
Asserting he had found few men op
posed to a league of nations, the pres
ident said the great objection seemed
to be to this particular league.
"I entirely concur in Senator Lodge's
declaration." said the president, "and
I hope I shall have his cooperation in
carrying out the desired ends."
He recalled his conference with the
foreign relations committee on his first
return from Paris and said every sug
gestion for improvement made by the
committee members had been written
into the covenant.
One of these suggestions, he contin
ued, was that the Monroe doctrine be
protected. He asserted that not only
had the doctrine been specifically re
served to administration by the United
States, but it had been extended to all
the world.
The text of President Wilson's lunch
eon address, in part, follows:
"I think we are now all convinced
that we have not reached the right
and final organization of our indus
trial society; that there are many fea
tures of our social life that ought to
undergo correction. There are antag
onisms set up that breed hate because
they breed friction and the world must
have leisure and order in which to see
that these things are set right. The
world can not have leisure and order
unless it has a guaranteed peace.
"Whether you will or not .our for
tunes are tied in with the rest of the
world, and the choice that we have to
make now is whether we will receive
the influence of the rest of the world
and be affected by them, or dominate
the influences of the world and lead it.
"What are you to be boys, running
around the circus tent and peeping un
der the canvas? Men declining to
pay the admission and sitting on the
roof and looking in on the game? Or
are you going to play your responsible
part in the game, knowing that you
are trusted as a leader and umpire,
both?
"If you are going to put into the
world this germ, I shall call it, of
American enterprise and American
faith and American vision, then you
musfbe the principal partners in the
new partnership which the world is
forming. I take leave to say without
intending the least disrespect at any
body that consciously or unconsciously,
a man who opposes that proposition
either has no imagination or no knowl
edge or as a quitter. America has
put her hand to this great enterprise
already in the men she sent overseas
and their part was the negative part
merely.
"Every drop of blood I have in me
gets up and shouts when I think of
the opportunity America has. I come
of a certain stock that raised Cain in
the northern part of the island Great
Britain under the name of covenanters.
They met in a churchyard and on the
top of a flat tombstone they signed
an immortal document called the
Solemn League and Covenant, which
meant that they were going to stand
by their religious principles in spite of
the crown of England and the force ot
England and every other ' influence,
whether of, men or. the devil, so long
as any of them lived.
"Now I have seen men of all nations
sit around a table in Paris and sign a
solemn league and covenant. They
have become coy enanters and I remain
a covenanter.
"We . are .going to see this Job
through, no matter what influences of
evil withstand -it."

ARMY OFFICERS
FIGHT DUEL ON
HISTORIC FIELD
FORT LEE, N. J., Sept. 15.
Atop the Palisades a few miles from
the "amous Weehawken duelling
ground on which in 1804, Aaron
Burr and Alexander Hamilton, vet
ernas of the revolutionary war set
tled their difference with pistols,
another pair of Army American of
ficers, veterans of a bloodier war,
tonight faced each other at 20
paces, according to a report under
investigation by the local police.
Unlike the historic duel of more
than a century ago, bred of po
litical rivalry, tonight'" affair is
said to involve a woman. Report
has it that one officer, a captain,
was so seriously wounded that he
was carried to the base hospital at
Camp Merritt. Hospital officials
would neither confirm nor deny the
report.
Real Work On
Pact Unlikely
For One Week
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
WASHINGTON. Sept 15. The Ger
man peace treaty, with its league of
nations covenant, was called up today
in the senate but plans of the senate
and individual senators mere consid
ered as precluding any actual work on
the pact until next week.
While the treaty was put before the
senate to be considered in open session
continuously until ratified or rejected.
there apparently was no disposition to :
speed it along until after the inter- j
ruption of business by the Pershing
ceremonies Wednesday and Thursday.
Senator Sherman, republican, Illinois,
will take up most of the time of thci
session tomorrow with an attack on the
league covenant, and Senator Reed,
democrat, Missouri, who has been
speaking in the west against it, will
speak Friday.
The reading of the treaty, section by
section, hardly is expected, therefore.
to begin until Monday. The league
covenant comes first, and right at thei
beginning, almost, is the amendment
by Senator Johnson, republican, Cali
fornia, which would give the United
States the same voting power as Great
Britain.
Hot Fight On Vote Clause.
How much time the senate would
take in considering this amendment,
members today declined to say. al
though the general view was that near
ly every one on the republican side
might want to express opinions re
garding it. It was suggested that Sen
ator Johnson, who is on a speaking
tour, might return in time to take per
sonal charge of the fight to equalize
the voting clause.
After Chairman Lodge had formally
called up the treaty today, he present
ed a printed text of the treaty with
Austria, supplied him by a Chicago
newspaper, and obtained unanimous
consent to have it read, word for word.
Senator Hitchcock, of Nebraska, who.
as the ranking democrat of the com
mittee, will conduct the administration
fight for; ratification, made vigorous
objection to this procedure, declaring
it "a mere squandering of time."

WASHINGTON". Sept. 15. State
ments issued by the Leagrue of Free
Nations association to counteract what
the organization was charged to be a
plot to force intervention in Mexico,
were largely based on information re
ceived from George F. Weeks, publish
er of the Mexican Review, a Carranza
organ. T. J. Debekker today told the
senate foreign' relations sub-committee
investigating the Mexican situation.
Oebekker is a member of the leagues'
committee on Mexico and previous
witnesses had testified he was the au
thor of most of the literature sent out
by the league for publication.
Admission that he received his infor
mation as to conditions in Mexico from
Weeks was made by Debekker in the
course of a sharp cross-examination j
bv Chairman Fall and Senator Brande-
gee of the sub-commitee. The same
cross-examination brought out that
Debekklr based his charges of an or
ganized movement to force intervetion
"on newspaper reports," but further
questioning as to the ncjvspaper re
ports brought the statement that none
were at hand, but that he would "sub
scribe to a clipping bureau" and get the
"evidence" desired.
Debekker defended the Carranza gov
ernment in his testimony and said that
he believed Carranza was giving Mex
ico a better government than . the
United States could. He also asserted
that worse things had happened in the
United States than had occurred in
Mexico. Later cross-examination
brought from him that outside of in- j
formation gained indirectly his only j
knowledge of Mexican conditions was ;
obtained last spring during a six weeks' j
visit, four weeks of which were spent
In Mexico City and the other two in i
traveling about the country as the guest j
of President Carranza and accompanied ;
by Minister of Finance Cabrera.
Members of the sub-committee and !
the witness clashed time after time j
during the hearing. At last Debekker, !
ruJsing his voice, declared:

A mounting death list and extensive
property damage was shown in reports!
early this (Tuesday) morning from the
Texas coastal region swept by a trop
ical hurricane from the Gulf of Mexico
last Sunday.
Varying reports placed the death list
at from 25 in Corpus Christi alone to
more than 130. The latter figures in

Property damage in Corpus Christi
