Washington, D. C, Dec. 20. After
a hot debate in the house today ad
ministration leaders had their way and
sent the currency bill to a conference
committee. Attempts to concur at
once in the senate amendments were
defeated 294 to 59.
A group of middle west Democrats
made a futile fight to accept the sen
ate provisions for guarantee o depos
its, re-discount of six months agricul
tural paper and five year farm mort
gage loans by national banks.
On its way to conference, the bill
struck a snag in the house where a
fight over the number of conferees
and the question of a separate vote on
some of the senate amendments caus
ed delay. Representative Glass asked
unanimous consent to disagree to the
senate amendments and send the bill
to conference. Hardwick of Georgia,
and Madden of Illinois, contended the
house should have as many conferees
. as the senate and said they desired
an opportunity to vote on some of the
amendments. Majority Leader Under
wood was given unanimous consent to
take up the bill, but Representative
Murray of Oklahoma, moved to concur
in the senate amendments and the
reading of the fifty pages of changes
made by the senate was ordered, caus
ing a long delay in getting the bill be
fore the conference committee.
' The fight in the house developed a
movement to insure retaining the sen

past 24 hours at Carrizozo, where Dep
uty Traveling Auditor T. J. Guilfoil is
making an examination of the books
of the county officials, judging by the
following message received today by
the New Mexican from its correspond
ent at Carrizozo:
"Carrizozo, N. 51., Dec. 20. Former
Deputy County Clerk Lee B. Chase

charges preferred by County Clerk A.

as to who is responsible for the short'

Late this afternoon the . following
mesage was received:
"Carrizozo, N. M.. Dec. 20. The
hearing of Lee B. Chase waB con

County Clerk Harvey."
At the traveling auditor's office to
day but little was known of the case

said conflicted.
Mr. Glass attacked the bank re

"Under this provision," he said, "the
total reserves of the banks in the sys

the reserve banks, would be less than
they are at present holding in cash.
Within a few months under these pro
visions we would have a saturnalia of
expansion, of wild inflation."
He declared the senate guarantee
provision was a "mere pretense".
"There are things in this bill
which would bring calamity to this
country, and they ought not to be
allowed to become law," he declared.
Majority Leader Underwood closed
the debate, declaring that the measure
should be sent to conference, and the
house lined up for a vote.
With the house in disorder, Repub
. lican Leader Mann moved to instruct
the house conferees to disagree to the
senate amendments and agree to the
Hitchcock bill rejected by the senate.
A parliamentary wrangle ensued and
another roll call was ordered to shut
off debate.
The bill went to conference, with
the house managers instructed to ac

Washington, D. C, Dec. 20. Senor
Riano, the Spanish ambassador, act
ing under instructions from Madrid,
formally denied to the state depart
ment today that. Spanish subjects in
Mexico aided the Huerta cause, as
contended by General Villa, who de
fended his action in confiscating Span
ish property by charging that Spanish
residents in Chihuahua had violated
the neutrality laws. The following
was made public by Acting Secretary
"Reports received at the department
of state through the Spanish embassy
deny that the Spaniards in Mexico I
have taken part in politics there and
affirm that they have always observed
the strictest neutrality in the affairs
of Mexico. These reports also declare
that statements that have been sent
out from El Paso that the Spaniards
expelled by General Villa had made a
by Representative Mann to substitute ; public demonstration in favor of in
the Hitchcock bill. During the debate, j tervention by the United States or
Representative Glass declared that no shave committed other acts of ques-
immediate agreement between the tionable propriety with reference to
two houses was likely, although other
leaders predicted early action,
"There are serious differences be
tween the two houses," said Represen
tative Glass, "and I cannot see any
prospect of an immediate agreement."
Then, after the house had wrangled
back and- forth for more than four
hours. Speaker Clark finally got to a
point where he could name the con
ferees and he formally named Repre
sentatives Glass, Korbley and Hayes.
The guarantee of deposits amend
ment was passed during the fight on
the floor, but when the conference
committee was ready to meet, it was
generally understood that Representa
tive Glass and the house conferees
'would stand against it.
Conferees Meet.
Preparing the administration cur
rency bill for President Wilson's sig
nature was begun today when house
and senate conferees met to compro
mise differences between the Owen
substitute as the measure was known
as it pased the senate, and the Glass
bill which was the administration
measure in the house.
Senators Owen, Reed, O'Gorman,
Pomerene, Shafroth and Hollis, Demo
crats, and Senators Nelson, Bristow
and Crawford, .Republicans, will rep
resent the senate in the conference.
Chairman Glass of the house bank
ing committee, who was sponsor for

The department issued this sum
mary of late reports from Chihuahua:
"The confiscation of Spanish prop
erty in Chihuahua is confirmed by
state department advices. General
Villa is said to claim that the expul
sion of the Spaniards saved their lives
as they were in danger of massacre by
the populace. Participation in politic
al affairs is also charged but these
persons who could prove themselves
guiltless of participation will be per
mitted to return and will be given in
demnity for their losses."

Mrs. Caroline Turner the mystery of
her death will be darker than ever.

Washington, D. C, Dec. 20. The
greatest anti trust victory or Presi
dent Wilson's administration thus far
the voluntary dissolution of the so
called telephone trust commanded
the attention of all administration of
ficials today.
Next to the fact that all the fea
tures against which the government
was preparing an anti trust suit, will
be eliminated with the consent and co
operation of "big business" itself,
without years of court fighting, the
principal topic of discussion in admin
istration circles, was what effect the
dissolution will have on the move
ment for government owenrship. It
has not been generally expected in
congress that such a plan would soon
be urged as administration measure.
With the voluntary . dissolution of
the so called trust actually under way,
however, Attorney General McRey
nolds and the Interstate commerce
comniisison today prepared to scan
the details of the separation of the
American Telephone and Telegraph
company from the Western Union, and
the work of dissolving telephone af
fairs throughout the country which
threatened federal actiou.
Not only has the American Tele
phone and Telegraph company agreed
to give up its control of the Western
Union, but it has agreed not to ex
tend its monopoly of local companies
in the telephone field.
Representative Lewis, of Maryland,
author of the parcel post law and ac
tive In the movement for government
ownership of telegraph and telephone
lines, introduced a resolution to direct
the house postoflice committee to go
ahead and reporta bill for govern
ment ownershipv'tif telephone lines, to
be operated by the postoflice depart
ment. In a statement accompanying his
j resolution, Mr. Lewis contended that
the action of the Bell Telephone com
pany to prevent litigation under the
anti-trust law, did not affect the leg
islative situation at all.
"The action of the Bell company will
not reduce a single telephone or tele
graph rate in the United States, and
so the public necessities for legisla
tive action to postalize these methods
of communication, as they have been
in nearly all other countries, are not
affected in the least," said he.
The Lewis resolution embodies a
plan by which the telephone lines
would be appraised by the Interstate
commerce commission and the com
panies might appeal to the United
States circuit courts on the awards.
Pending litigation, interest at the rate
of four per cent, a year would be paid
to the owners.
The government would issue three j
per cent bonds from time to time as

New York, Dec. 20. Referring to
the relations between the American
Telephone and Telegraph company
and the Western Union, T. N. Vail,
president of both, said today in part:
"No such thing as dissolution has
occurred, for the reason that no such
thing as a merger ever occurred in
the past. The relations between the
American Telephone and Telegraph
lompaiiy and the Western Union have
never beeu in the nature of a mer-
ger. The development or tne mutual
relations has been of a complimentary
iiflernoon between Mr. Green, Colo-!
nel Hopewell. Colonel Dobson and
several of (lie directors of the Com- !
mereiiil club, looking to the raising of :
some purl of the $12.",imif needed !
from citizens of Albuquerque. After i
the conference, President Kaseman j
would give out none of the details of
what took place further than to say
thar the parlies ended just where they
had started.
Mr. Green stated that he would
probably remain in the city for a day
or two before returning to Chicago.

food. The federal officers here say
hat many have not reached the con

news of the disarmament, of the entire,

more than 500 men. These were dis
armed following the discovery of a

men, to the Insurgent side. This is
believed to have reduced the federal
garrison by one-half.
That General Ojeda himself would

report reaching here from Cruz de
