GARRISON ORES 1 7 MOTOR RUCKS Tales of Battles Told By Wounded NEW YORK, May 15. Some young men of the navy arc back In New York today, having returned on the United States hospital ship Sc'ace, not because they wanted to leave what they called "the fun" down in Vera Cruz, but because they were ordered here for the better r.icomniodations afforded by the naval hospital in the New York Navy "iard There were three bodies in flag-draped coffins on the Solace. Two of the men died of wounds incurred in the occupation of Vera Cruz, and the third was a victim of appendicitis, which developed after he had gone unscathed through the snipers' storm. THIRTY-ONE WOUNDED. Will Play Important Role in Movement of Supplies in Case of War. The uuunrled on the ship numbered th m-one cf whom twenty-elslu were uhat is known as uti etcher eases, m tha they couldn't walk; thirty-one men -ere brought back for hospital treat s' ent and there were forty men who are nimalt-scing and who will return to the t -'l t hen the Solace goes back after t'le nas been repaired and has taken on 4 cargo of medical supplies for the tttL Four Amputation Cases. There were four amputat.on cases taken to the Naval Hospital. When these men have recovered they will be bono: ably dismissed from the service nd will be pensioned by the Govern ment. Among these is Edward A. Gls burne. seaman on tUe Florida, from Washington, whose lelt leg was ampu tated. As an example of the youth of the juiilors who did the Vera Cruz JiBhting Gcorse Kinsman, with his right les cone, is only eishteen years old. The thine he regrets most is that he cannot continue In the navy. The stories told by the wounded men about each other and about those who trere killed were of how the young men went ashore and through the infested streets of Vera Cruz without even a tremor of fear, eager only to carry out their orders and do a workmanlike job. For instance. Edward Schwartz, of Manhattan, who belonged to the gun crew commanded by John Schumacher, tiio Brooklyn lad who was killed, wouldn't say a word about the wound tn his shoulder. All he would talk of was of how Schumacher died, an ex ample to his comrades. "John Schumacher was one of the rtsest men on the Florida," said (chwartz before he went to the hospital. It was hard for the rest of us to re strain ourselves when be was killed, but was Thomas F- Collins, a sailor on the Floiida, who was thrown from a don key in front of a Vera Cruz street car and whose skull was fractured. Commander Wedeklml of the Solace pa.d high tribute to Hll the wounded ' "It was a hard trip." he said. Motor trucks, in the evant of war. are to play an important part In the move ment of supplies. This is indicated by the fact that Secretary of War Garri son today gave authority to purchase seventeen motor truck chassis for use as means of transportation In the Qiiar ti'rmiister Corps. Sealed proposals will le opened simultaneously on May 33. by the depot auartormast-ra In Washing ton, Fort Sam Houston. El Paso, St. Lf.uls, and Chicago. Truck manufacturers of the country have been invited to submit proposals, mid it ia understood tho manufacturers whe are in a" position to Vive quick de liveries will recelv.- preference. The War Department now has in ino many of the boys were very badly hurt and in great pain, but the hen ism they showed in enduring the hardships was as great as they displayed in the face of tho enemy's bullets. They are a line lot from beginning to" end and a crtdi' to tho country." Thu seven surgeons on the Solace came in for a lot of praise from the Mck and wounded. The navy's doc- 1013 were in me tront of the lighting to and ! n"inv motor trucks, and exhnusti'v e tests of their carrying capacity and ability to negotiate, nil kinds of roads have been made in tho last two or three years. and eMiosed themselves continually a'l sorts ot Dangers. Frequently they would be ministering to a wounded man while snipers' bul lets, the soft nosed kind that nreak bouts and poison liesh, were kicking up I thf dust about them. But all of them . rei'reu in confusion yesterday wl asked to tell about their experiences, Missed Every Time. Charles t Doyle, ordinary seaman of the Florida and orderly to CapL Will lam R.

' He is the orderly who bore tho message from Captain Rush to Rear Admiral Fletcher, notifying him that the bluejackets wero being fired on and aswng uie rear admiral to open fire from the ship. Doyle was shot at many times, sev eral bullets passing through the service roll on his bad: and two going through his canteen. He was returning to Cap tain Rush from an outpost when he was struck by an automobile and thrown under a trolley car. He waa fearfully crushed about thr. hin k tr. spite of it all his clear black eyes dance Ho Troops Are Ready for Action, Says Secretary i Although claiming to see no emer gency at hand In the Mexican situation. Secretary of War Garrison today ad mitted that the army is ready. Coast artillery and other troops, he stated, are under orders to have Mieir when j equipment ready for hnsty embarka tion, if needed. Mountain artillery l-s being turned out in the araenals. Killrs are at full complement, but ammunition, in some instances. Is at low ebb. The arsenals at Springfield, Mass.; V.'pter vliet, X. Y., and Rock Island, III., are trying to make up the deficiency. Contracts have been made with the railroads, the Sccretarv said, for quick movement of troops, if necessary. "I have told the coast artillery com panies and others," he said, "to have everything ready. This order applies all over the country. It does not liiean, however, that I see any emergency, for I do not." The Secretary insisted that this state of preparedness was no greater now than it has been for six months. VERA CRUZ, May 1 5. Mutiny in the ranks of Huerla's army at the capital has broken out. Troops quartered at the Piedad barracks, three miles i':om the center of the Mexican capital, revolted last night and pledged allegiance to Villa against Huerta. Officers of the barracks who refused to join the mu tiny vere shot down. Word of this development in the ranks of the fed erals reached General Pena, who is now in command at Pasa del Macho, where he superseded General Maas. In turn the information reached Vera Cruz. TREACHERY IS FEARED. It is supposed that tho mutinous tionps wera rurnles or other irregular foices, whose action was precipitated b the receipt of orders to prepare to oppose Villa's advanco from the north. Tht number of soldiers in the revolt arc not known. News of the mutiny lends light to the rrcent order f Ilunrta sending 2.000 of the police out of Mexico City for fear of treachery. The effect of the fall of Tampico on the dictator was noticeable, according to information reaching- here from the capital this morning. The removal of General Maas to the capital, where he Joins the other Huerta loyalists, l not relished by tho Americnns here. General Pena. who Is regarded as an American hater. Is expected to make it more difficult for Americans seeking to come to Vera Cruz, to make their way through the lines of tho federals. .-orders are orders and we had to treat ff 'ie .teIIs J, the "little scrap' he Mexicans In a way we didn't like l. s to nothing more than a sc ktnr much. bOJ.

So said .Or. Edward W. Ityan, State Department agent and Red Cross work er, when he reached this city, after hav ing been saved from death at the hanJs of Htierta's soldiers In Mexico through a demand trade by the Secretary of frtate. Before ho was released. Dr. Ryan had to sUn this pledge, prepared l.y General Huerta: "I, the undersign ed hereby gUe my word of honor that I will never tell anything of a character derogatory to the .Mexican government or to any of Its officials, and 1 pledge tlint I will not tell of my treatment while held by the government s a pris oner." Or. Ron. as he left tho refugee McamCT F.snT-in.ia, said lie was hurry ing to Washington to make report to "officials there" How much tie will tell l:e do-s not know. 'I am not Mire," he said, "whe'licr m duty to the State Department s'lould overwelgh tho spirit of my pledge, or whether 1 Bhall keep my lips sealed. When I get to Wash ington I shall explain this problem, and probably shall act on the advice I re ceive." He then told the part of his story that he felt under no obligation to keep a necret. "My work as a Red Cross official had to do with thu care of foreigners wounded and injured," he said. "It Is true that I found no wounded foreign ers, but my work necessitated that I look fcr them. "On April 7. I left Mexico City for Torreon. I not only represented the Red Cross, but the American Embassy as well. I drove to San Pedro and then to Torreon. I was in the wake of the battles. Then I started for Fres nillo. "I was traveling alone. As I drove toward Frcspltlo I suddenly was lihlt ed b tho fede.rals. "'Are you a "gringo"?' thev aked me. and I told them that I was.
