THE WASHINGTON TIMES. FRIDAY. MAY 15. 1914. 3 Insist Huerta End SillimanMystery Administration, Tired of Procrastination, Sends New Demands That Mexican Dictator Reply at Once Vigorous Movement of Army Supplies Goes On. MARINES MARCHING TO GUARD TEJAR WATERWORKS' MARCH ON CAPITA New demands went from this Government to Huerta toda in the cases of the missing American vice counsel, John R. Silliman, and missing orderly, Samuel Parks. These urgent orders, it developed today, are the cul mination of a series of daily demands upon the dictator through the Brazilian minister at Mexico City for Silli man's release and for information regarding Orderly Parks. These demands have been without result. They were renewed today in a spirit that shows the Administration is tired of Mexican procrastination. Not a word regarding either man was contained in State Department dispatches early today. Around the State and War Departments, the belief grows that Parks has been executed, while officials are inclined to think that Silliman is still under uard at Sal tillo, contrary to Huerta's promises for his release. Because of the uncertainty regarding Silliman's fate and the mystery yet surrounding the disappearance of Orderly Samuel Parks, Photographer A. J. Sutton, of Washington, and Correspondent Dobster, the vigorous movement of supplies to Galveston is considered signifi- cant. It may be necessary to serve another time ultimatum on Huerta demanding that the fate of the quartet be cleared up within a few hours. SUPPLIES BEING MOVED. That is the only explanation obtain able here of the concentration of the reserve supplies of field equipment, arms, ammunition, and rations for men and horses of the department of the cast at Galveston. This equipment has been stored at the army quartermas ter's store houses on West and Water streets. New York, and on Governors island. Now it Is all being rushed south, although there is certain to be icrlous expense and loss in shipment, and for storage quarters Secretarj of War Garrison simply at, "There are no troop movements." With the supplies concentrated two dajs journey from Mexico, troop move ments would be easy. The Coast Ar tillery companies, organized as in fantry, are lead to board trains for the south The remainder of the Texas cite division could start for Vera Cruz in "three hours. If it turns out that Hueila has permitted Silliman to b murdered or countenanced the slaving of Parks, the arm; is expecting active service. It vva6 reported todav- that the United statefc II not interfere vvith the im portation of arms and ammunition by the constitutionalists, through Tnmpico. The Administration has been carefully considering this question. While no p ibllc announcement has been obtain able, it if declared that it has been de cided not to inquire into the methods of administration put into effect at T&Jnplco. H is pointed out that the oc cupation of Vera Cruz, while under taken for the purpose of preventing a k shimnent of arms and ammunition 'iirni Germany reaching Huerta, offi cially was simply an aft of reprisal for the Tampico incident and insult to the flag Seek Lifting of Embargo.

Rose went no furthei into the Incident. Two women, veiled, have been in tha witness room of the court at times dur ing tho last two days. One of these, it was reported today, was the widow of Rosenthal. She Is, It is declared, eager to tell a story of the quarrel between Rccker and the dead gambler which led to her husband's slaughter by the four gunmen on the morning of July 18, 1912. Reports current for days that Becker will take the stand in an attempt to save himself from the electric chair, seemed well based today. It la believed that the defense will exhaust Its every device to break down the prosecution's case otherwise, and then, if without success, thev will place Becker himself on the stand. Should this be clone the greatest duel New York courts ever saw Is likely to result. No Love Lost, There is no love lost between Becker and Whitman. In presenting its case the defense has pracUcally charged that Whitman, Rose, Webber, and Wallon framed" the case because, as one de fense witness will swear. Whitman "wanted" Becker. Reports that the defense has dicto graph conversations in which Ross and Webber are said to have admitted that Becker had no part in the Rosenthal rrurder were current about the court when it opened today with Vallon on tho stand for cross-examlnaUon. The tamo big crowds which have at tended every session of the trial jam med into the criminal courts building today. It Is believed that the prosccut.on'3 case will be completed about Tuesday. The defense, secretive, refused to infll cate how long would be consumed In eiev eloping their contention that either Rose had Rosenthal killed In satisfac tion of a private grudge or that the Miuc-aling gambler met his death as the result of a gamblers' war. They are de veloping Hues of argument to fit either hypothesis. Ben Was Wise. )oung Lancashire millworker had a ,nental relapse which resulted in his being sent to the county asylum. After he had been there a few weeks he was visited by one of his fellow-workers, who came across him in the ground. "Halloa. Benny!" said the visitor, "how's the gettln' on?" 'Oh, Ah'm goin' on first-rate, thank ie." answered the afflicted one.

There was a note of trl umph In Villa's voice as he cxplainet his general plan of campaign agalns Mexico City. "Why should we waste the summer, said Villa, "on the desert taking on little position after another when w could march to Mexico city, take tb capital, and all of the smaller placet would fall by reason of the momenttin of the Mexico City crash and the down fall of the Huerta rule and the Cientlflo party.
