VILLA SHY DEATH
State Department Insists They
, J Must Not Be Executed Pend
j ing Inquiry.
INDICATES FIRMER POLICY
Administration's Next Step in
Mexico Is Expected After
Duval West's Return.
Sharp demand was made today on
Gen. Francisco Villa to postpone action
In the case of the two Americans,
George Marks and S. Franklin, arrett
ed at Juarez and carried to Chihuahua
tinder sentence of death on tho charge
ol making and circulating counterfeit
Through the United States consul at
Chihuahua and the consul at Juarez,
the State Department has served notice
that tho men must not be executed un
til the United States Government has
had opportunity to examine into the
"Tho Department," read the official
statement issued today, "Is insisting
that no summary action must be
taken until the United States Gov
ernment investigates all the facts."
Indicates Former Policy.
'The tone of peremptory demand on
Iho Mexican authorities apears on Its
face as a new one for the Depart
ment to assume. It Indicates the
firmer character of the Administra
tion's new Mexican policy, and re
ects the personality of tho successor
of Mr. Bryan.
That the development of this new
policy, will come to a head shortly
after "the German controversy is dis
posed of Is the growing1 bolief in of
ficial clrfclos. Duval west, whose re
port on present conditions In Mexico
wan the basis of the chance in policy.
will return to AVashlngton next Tues
day. It Is expected that there will
not bo much delay after that in the
development of tho Administration's
next step, provided In the meantime
the German crisis has blown over.
Decisive Battle Imminent.
Officials here are strong In tho belief
that with he present line-up of the mili
tary elements In Mexico, a decisive bat
tle of some sort Is imminent, and that
either Carranza or Ilia will emerge from
the battle decisively victorious. There
upon, it is undertsood, the President will
issue another statement, serving notice
on the victor that he will be given a
set period of from thirty to sixty days
in which to establish a government and
put an end to factional disturbances.
Failing this, the Mexicans will bo , told
that the United States Itself will under
take to establish orcder and peace.
.Should either Carranza or Villa suc
ceed within the specified time In meet
ing the conditions of tho American
Government, It is assumed that the Ad
ministration, swallowing whatever prej
udices it may have against either of
them, will proceed to recognize the new
gocrnment. It can be said, however,
that there is small hope among offi
cials here that either Carranza or Villa
could for any length of time preserve
"Bid" For eRcognition.
'Hestoration to official position of ad
herents of the late President Madero of
Mexico, as far as possible, as a subtle
"bid" for recognition by the United
States, Is the carefully veiled diplo
matic move of General Villa seen by
officials here in the election of Lagos
Chazro, a Madcrlst, as the constitu
'Strengthening of Villa's alliance with
Zapata Is also believed to be behind
President Garza's deposition in favor
'Chazarq's "election" by the constitu
tionalist convention Is undoubtedly be
lieved here to have been at Villa's dic
tation. Chazaro was a trusted lieuten
ant of Madero. Ho was Madero's gov
ernor of Vera Cruz state and a close
friend of the murdered President. Late
ly he has been president of the consti
By making Chazaro President, it Is
believed in official circles here, that
Villa is endeavoring to fill official
places with Maderlsts and thus be able
to represent to President Wilson that
he Is attempting to restore the Mader
ist regime to power.
Zapata Is understood, also, to have
insisted upon Garza's retirement. There
has been much friction between Zapata
and Garza personally. Within the last
fortnight Garza Issued a statement
bitterly attacking "bandits", In Mexico
Cltv who seized food supplies of famine
BUfferers and pillaged merchants and
private citizens. Zapata's insistence Is
believed to have played a large part In
Villa's decision to suppant Garza.
Exodus, of refugees from Mexico, both
because of famine and because of cha
otic business conditions. Ir crnwlnor no.

Mearly BOOycfugees from Mexico City
are due to leave Vera Cruz today on
the army transport Buford. which will
also pick up more refugees at Tux
pam en route to the United States.
Arrange to Organize
Girl Scouts' Council
Detail work of organizing the National
Council of the Girl Scouts occupied the
attention of the officers of that move
ment today, the second of their national
convention. It is expected articles of
incorporation will be filed this after
'noon. The convention will close with a rally
of all the girl scouts In Washington at
Hock Creek Park tomorrow afternoon,
beginning at 2 o'clock. A semaphore
signal drill, demonstration of frst ad,
and "troop stunts" such as camp scenes),
ambulance drills, setting up drills and
wapd drills will be features of the pro
gram. Music will bo furnished by the
Boy Scout Drum and Bugle Corps under
the direction of J. L. Kldwell.

Asks Patriotic Support of City's
Men to Put Guard on Proper
Following his formal acceptance of
the commission as head of the District
of Columbia mllltla, Brig. Gen. William
E. Harvey todav plunged Into tho work
of reorganization of the guard In con
formity with the recent order of tho
War Department. Until this reorganiza
tion Is perfected. General Harvey said
today, nothing else In tho way of a
change will be considered.
"Tho reorganization must bo carried
out. and tho sooner It Is over tho bet
ter," he said today. "Wo had a meeting
of tho senior officers last night 'for this
purpose, and there will be another meet
ing tonight. The officers are showing
a fine spirit of co-operation, and I be
llevo that by the time we start for tho
annual encampment on August 16, we
will havo things In fine working order
and an organization of which tno citi
zens of the District may well bo proud."
Referring to his plans for carrying out
tho reorganization, the general said:
"Before my appointment was made a
bourd of ofheers was convened consist
ing of Colonel Ourand, Ltcutenant
Colonel Young, Lieutenant Colonel
Stophan, Major Castner, of tho United
States army, recently detailed as tho
adjutant general, and myself. That
board has taken up In detail the records
of tho officers with a view to making
tho selection solely on the considera
tion of efficiency. The last three annual
inspection reports have been taken up,
examined, and carefully analyzed. If
there Is no place open to them In their
present rank, they will be given a com
mission In the highest rank that Is open
"A considerable number of tho officers
have already expressed their willingness
to accept demotion If It Is their part to
take It. In this regard tho spirit dis
played has een very line. It Is, of
course, hard for a "man who has held
rank to accept a reduction, but tho of
ficers have been made to understand
that the acceptance of a commission at
a lower grade under the circumstances
of tho reorganization Is not to bo con
sidered as a reflection on tho officer.
Indeed, the acceptance of a commission
in a lower grade may be taken as an
indication of the soldierly qualities of
the man to accept what comes to him
In a military way without question and
"The maintenance of tho National
Guard, which Is a purely volunteer or
ganlatlon, Is dependent In large measure
upon the support which It receives from
me community, in some places tho
Guard is supported with great enthus
iasm and the efficiency of the organiza
tion Is looked upon as a matter of civic
pride. Many of the business people of
Washington have taken this public
spirited view of National Guard work.
If a man applies for leave to attend
camp, most of the business men of
Washington should let him off If It Is
a possible thing to do.
"If we get from the business people
of Washington the sort of support that
the trade bodies have recommended,
given with willingness and enthusiasm,
with a feeling that by encouraging
young men to enlist, and by giving them
credit for such bcrvice they are doing
a public duty, we will certainly have an
organization which It will be a badge
of honor to belong to."

Clears Skin Stops
All Blood Troubles
Goes Right Down to Where
the Germs Start .
The action of S. B. S., the famous blood
purifier, Is notable in the sbln. It is but
natural that blood impurities should seek
an outlet. Water, gas, oil and nearly all
the actlvo products of nature seek the sur
face. It seems to be a cosmic law. Even
our thoughts will undertake to find eiprcs-
Ion. And so whatever we take into our
system will eventually come out changed In
form, converted often Into some other sub
stance, but constituting always eitner
waste or tiat which has served Its useful
purpose and must be eliminated. And the
skin Is the principal avenue for escape of
certain acids or poisons. If the skin and
blood be, healthy these wastes pass off as
vapor or perspiration, uut impure blood
loads the skin with eczema, pimples, acne,
rheumatism, rash, fever blisters, blood ris
ings and other eruptions. And S. S. 8. has
been found the very best, safest and most
effective remedy to purify the blood and
thus restore the skin to clear and attractive
health. Get a bottle today of any drug
gist, but be emphatic. Do not allow any
one to hand you a substitute. Wrapped

,that tells you how to obtain skillful advice
free on any subject concerning mo uiooa.

this morning when the fifty-odd
American beauties who arc going to tho

special train here for a few hours In
order to get a view of tho Grand
Canyon of Arizona.
It was before dawn when the train
pulled Into tho station nt Williams, but
Miss Ruth Purcell, the Washington
beauty, having heard of the wonders of
sunrise at the canyon, roused as many
of her fellow beauties as possible and
hurried to get the first glimpse of tho
gorgeous coloring as tho. sun came up.
As soon aB there was light enough a
sorlcs of motion pictures were mado of
the handsome young women with tho
Grand Canyon as a background.
The young women wcro divided Into
several parties to Boe tho sights after
breakfast at the El Tovar Hotel. Some
of them explored the Angel trail, and at
8 o'clock they were aboard tho train
again and on their way to Los Angeles.
