E WASHINGTON TIMES SUNDAY, MARCH 2G,' 1910.
IB X i si ' CENSORSHIP UD IS T War ' Department Guards All Mexico Reports Following President's Plot Warning. Following the warning by President Wilson" JHat a widespread Interna tional, plot linn been hatched to l'orco Amerloan Intervention In Mexico, the War Department today tightened the censorship on alt new relating to Oenoral Pershing's campaign agnlnct Villa. Secretary of War Baker received a number of dispatches from General Punaton when he readied the officii thin morning. He said there wa nothing that could be given out. General Carransa still withholds por mlsslonto the United States to Use the Mexican railway to carry supplies to the expeditionary forces. The protqcol, which lino been in process of Decollation for a week and through which tne United States hopes to frame a plan of Joint action between United States and Carranztsta foices In tho Villa camralcn. remains un signed. Hen -tenntnrw from the border Btatea re ceived a flood of messages today In re sponse to Inquires sent to frletnds in those States asking Information as to tho exact situation. Theso messages will be considered at a conference of Scnalo Republicans to morrow. I E Mass Meeting Declares New Provisions Do Not Meet Ob jections Advanced. Takoma Park, the largest municipality In Montgomery county affected by tho sanitary bill 'pending In the Maryland Legislature, Is opposed to the measure even In Its' amended form, which limits the power of the proposed commission to preliminary study so far as Mont gomery "Coupty Is concerned. A mass meeting at Tokoma Park last night unanimously Indorsed the previous resolution of the mayor and council In favor of the .creation of a Joint study commission for both Montgomery and Prince Georges counties. The resolutions declare the bill In Its amended form does not meet the ob jections already made. Wade W. Dyar, corporation counsel, and a member of the town council, will probably go to Annapolis tomorrow to urge Takoma Park's objections to tho amendments before the Joint delega tions. -It was pointed out that the bill still Imposes burdens upon Montgomery county which are felt to be unjustified. Tho county commissioners are directed to issue and sell bonds to the amount of 315,000, upon the request of the pro posed commission. A proviso of the bill requires the pro posed commission to spend all of such money within tho county. Tho 1olnt delegations of Montgomery nnd Prince George counties have agreed to exempt Mt. Rainier from tho provisions of the bill, because that town Is about to vote on a bond Ib-,uq to build n water system. Takoma Park will nlso vote on a bond Issue on April 3. nnd manv speal. era urged that town's exemption also The amended section 11 of the bill provides that the proposed commission ''shall purchase" such existing systems "by agreement- with the municipality ny assuming all outstanding bonds Issued for the construction of tho same nnd tho payment to sold municipality of a cash difference. If any, to bo agreed upon: or In caao of failure to agree the said commission shall acquire auch, -system or systems by vindemna tlon proceedings."

Certificate filed in New York County. (GASCH & 1326 New York Are. N.W. Wilson's Statement On Mexican Situation This statement was Issued last night by President Wilson to guide tne public regarding American military op erations In Mexico: As hss already been announced, the expedition Into Mexico was or dered under an agreement with the ile facto government of .Mexico ror the single purpose of taking the bandit Villa, whoso Torces had act ually Invaded the territory or tno t'nlted States, and Is In no sense in tended as an Invasion of that re public or ns an Infringement of Its sovereignty. 1 have, therefore, asked the sev eral news services to be good enough to assist the Administration in keep in? thlsNJfW of the expedition con stantly before both tho people or th If. country and the distressed nnd sfnsltlvo pcoplo of Mexico, who nro very susceptible Indeed to impres sions received from the American press not only, but also very ready to believe that thoso impressions pro ceed from tho views and objects or our Government itself, Huch conclusions. It must be said, are not unnatural, because the mam It not the only eource of informa tion for the people on both sides or the border Is the public press or the United States, In order to avoid the creation or erroneous and dangerous Impres sions in this way I have called upon tho sovcral news agencies to us tho utmost care not to give news stories regarding this expedition tno color of war, to withhold stories oC troop movements and military prep arations -which might be given that interpretation, and to rerraln from publishing unverified rumors of un jest In Mexico. I feel that It Is most desirable to Impress upon both our own people and the people of Mexico the facts that the expedition is simply a nec essary punltlvo measure, aimed solely at the elimination of tho maraud era who raided Columbus, and who Infest an unproteced district near the border which they use as a base IN PILOUS FLIGHT COLUMBUS, N. if., March K.-Flylng In the face of cyclonic sandstorms, Lieut. Ilarbert Drague, attached to General Pershing's headquarters at Colonla Dublan, braved death In his aeroplane to bring urgent dispatches from Pershing to the army base in Co lumbus. Darague dropped 4,000 feet In a moun tain pass, where conflicting winds form ed an eddy, and barely escaped being crushed to death on the rocks, by right ing his aircraft fifty feet from the ground. The dispatches brought the first con firmation of stories told by individuals of the American column of the hard ships American troops are enduring. Shortly after Daraguo's arrival, a m- cnine gun mounted on a truck accom pained a double guard following the motor truck fleet over the desert routo to Pershing's field headquarters. The train consisted of twenty trucks carry ing rations. Tho prcsenco of the machine gun gave color to reports that roving bandits are threatening the American line of com munications In the vicinity of Corralltos. An Incoming motor train also reported a hurried strengthening of the communi cation lines. The Mexican town of Janos fell victim to the bandits when they set fire to four sections of the city. Janos, sit uated between Ascension and Corralltos, was burning fiercely at last reports, and was threatened with destruction. Severe criticism of tho army aero planes was contained In a report being formulated tonight by officers of the aviation corps for transmission to Gen eral Funston. The report will be ac companied by a recommendation that It be forwarded to the War Department. Heavy construction of the planes and Insufficient power In the engines are their chief criticisms of the aeroplanes. The low power Is blamed for the diffi culty -which the aviators have encoun tered in climbing to great heights on scouting expeditions. INSURANCE STATEMENTS LIABILITIES.

It Is "the purpose of our command ers to co-operato In every posslblo way with the forces of General Car rants, in removing this cause of Ir ritation to both Governments and to retire from Mexican territory so soon as that object Is accomplished. It Is my iliity to warn the people of the. United States that there are persons along the border who are actively engaged In originating and giving ns wide currency as they can to rumors of the most sensational and disturbing sort, which are wholly unjustified by the facts. The object of this traffic In false hood Is obvious. It Is to create Intol erable friction between the Govern ,menc of the United States and the. do farto government of Mexico for tho purpose of bringing about In tervention In the interest of certain American owners of Mexican prop erties. This object cannot bo attained so long as sane and honorable men are In control of this Government, but very serious conditions may be creatAl, unnecessary bloodshed may result and the relations between the two republics may be very much embarrassed. The people of the United States should know the sinister and unscru pulous Influences that are afoot and should be on their guard against crediting any story coming from the border; and those who disseminate tho news should mako It a matter of patriotism and of conscience to test the source and authenticity of every report they receive from that quar ter.
