A column of convention troops has been sent north from San Luis Potosi, under command of Gen. L,uis Gutierrez, brother of the provisional President, to attack Monterey. Previous reports had stated that Gen. Luis Gutierrez re fused to repudiate Carranza, but these dispatches indicate his brother has per suaded him to do so. Another force of Vlllistas, under com mand of Provisional Secretary of War Robles, has approached close to Tam pico. and Is awaiting the result of a conference with Gen.

A brief report on the discharge of Yukon river at Eagle, Alaska, by K. A. Porter and R. "W. Davenport, has just been issued by the United States Geological Survey. Probably few people have an ade quate conception of the srizo of this river ind characteristics of its flow. A. II. Brooks, of the Geological Survey, gives the Yukon fifth place among the largo rivers in North America, and esti mates its drainage area at about 330,000 square miles. Its length. Including the Lewes and Teslin rivers, is given in the report as 3,200 miles. This may bo compared with P.000 miles for the Mis sissippi and Missouri, 2,868 miles for tho Mackenzie ,000 for tho Colorado combined with Green river, and 1,300 for the Ohio combined with the Allegheny. Flow Comparatively Small. The discharge of the Yukon varies from a maximum of 254.0CO to a mini mum of 10,100 cubic feet a second, or an estiated average flow of 73,200 cubic feet This Is a relatively small discharge, the average flow of the Mississippi being 605,000, that of the Ohio 300,000, and that of the Colorado 23,300 second-feet. The Nile, with a drainage area of 1.262,000 square miles, has an average flow of 116,000 cubic feet a second. The flow of the Yukon Is therefore relatively small a3 related to Its drain age area, and this apparent anomaly Is accounted for by the fact that the in terior of Alaska has the small rainfall "characteristic of that portion of the United States which lies between tho Sierra Nevada and the Rooky moun tains, north of the latitude of Salt Lake City." Navigation on the Yukon has so im portant a bearing on transportation In interior Alaska that It has riven rise to a general recognition of two sea sons the "closed season," when the Yukon is either filled with floating Ice or frozen over, and the "open sea son." The break-up of the Ice usually occurs about the middle of May, after which the river is open to transporta tion for five or six months, or a little longer. Breaking Ice Spectacular. fi The break-up Is not only an event of great economic significance to the in habitants in the interior of Alaska, but it presents features of great drama tic interest as well. One who has not witnessed it, ac cording to the authors of the Survey report, can hardly Imagine the im pressiveness of the spectacle. From bank to bank the surface of the river is a solid mass of huge moving ice cakes, which are constantly grinding and disintegrating with an awe-inspiring exhibition of resistless force.. Tho freeze-up is less spectacular. With the increasing cold of the au tumn slush ico forms In the river, and as the cold becomes more Intense the Ice increases in volume until finally it is sufficient to bridge the entire stream. This means the termination of navigation on the Yukon until the following May.

They Have Learned First That the garments here at $6.50 are infinitely superior to best of $5.00 clothing and nearly as good as the garments usual at $10.00. Second It has been demonstrated that $6.50 is "a logical price," a price that enables mate rials and tailoring to assure permanent "lines," not less than mere resistance to wear and tear.
