THE WASHINGTON TIMES, SUNDAY, APRIL 27, 1919.
STEEL RAIL FIGHT ALL UP TO HIS Director General Hmcs today kolds the fate of the 'whole Govern ment price stabilizing- program In his hand. Secretary Redfleld has impor tuned, him to confer again on steel prices. If Hincs does not agree to further conferences "it will he necessary that members of the industrial board re sume their personal affairs," Redfleld stated in his telegram to the director general. Resignation of all members of the board are before Redfleld. Chairman Peelc sought again today to have them accepted. But the result of the meeting- was the new message to Hines. who is on an inspection tour in the West, asking that one more attempt to Iron out the controversy he made. Peck also sent a message to Hines iir-which he requested that if the di rector general had Tacts or figures to place, before them the board would b' "Clad to discuss them with his repre sentatives. Redfleld said there would be no further move on he part of himself or members of the board until a re ply from Hines is received. Railroad Administration officials were, not optimistic. None believed 'that "action looking to definite re sults" could be expected from a fur ther conference. But It Doesn't Mean Anything fCopyrirht. Ills, by n.

Three Government agencies have bepun investigation to find means of checking fraud tvhich is said to bo practiced by numerous loan "sharks." Reports reaching the Federal Trade Commission, department of Justice and the Treasury show that In nu merous sections of the county "deal ers" In "Liberty bonds are openly buy Ing bonds at prices "far below their market value- - , Pajy Oglr W Per Cent. Officials said these "dealers" were telling people who are in need of money that there Is a great expense attached to marketing the Liberty bond, and therefore the price they will pay sometimes ranges as low as GOT per cent of the bond's -value. In' some cases, it was reported, the "dealers" have represented them selves to have been licensed by the Treasury Department. Officials believed there .were several ways of chpcklng the practice which they 'termed "essentially a fraud." It was understood fthat instructions have gone out to Federal officials throughout the country to report im mediately when they obtain informa tion concerning ' a continuation of rsuch-bond- buying. ' caused the, i'yjctprK Ship" Crane, which fs making the San Dlego-Pan-ama Cahar leg-of the Victory Journey, to slow down, hor engines. Off the lower coast of California today, the Crane's speed . was reduced. Her crew asked the Navy Department by wireless- "If the American people have forsaken us." Akrortf Ohlo, was the largest city to complete her work In last night's lists. Sioux City, Iowa, however, ac complished the feat of obtaining her share without soliciting a single sub scription, Her job was finished In twelve hours, war loan directors telesrraDhed. Reports received bv Admiral Cowie, director of the campaign in tnc navy, showed the, sailors' total subscriptions tp be $4,750,000. The army, however, is busy, too, ac coralng to reports. Retu.-nn& sol diers aboard the George Washington subscribed $41,000 before thiv a:t foot on American soil. Subscription Hjr DNtrlclA. Subscriptions by districts an:i their percentages to date were reported as follows. The April issue of the Mexican Re view, published in Mexico City, that just reached Washington, contains an article by the editor of that publica tion, which throws new light on the fate of Ambrose Bierce, the. noted California author, who mysteriously disappeared from El Paso In 1014. Bierce left his home in California, ostensibly to go to Mexico. "Nothing was ever heard from blm, and it was reported that he had died. No definite information to substantiate this re port was fpund, however, and, the lapse of five years had served only to deepen the mystery of his disappear ance. The Mexican Review now, states that Bierce was executed in 1915 by. General Tomas Urbina, of Pancho. Villa's forces. The authority for -the. story of the author's execution la given as a sergeant In Villa's army. The Review article follows: Officer Kaevr Hfalm. "A short time since the Review edi-. tor-was-conversing' with a friend, a former, officer in the Constitutional army, and casually asked him If, ho had ever heard of an American named Ambrose Bierce. 1o his surprise he replied that-he had met him several times and had become quite w ac quainted with him. This was due to the faot that Bierce could apeak little if any Spanish, whife the officer is well educated and speaks English fluently. "The latter declared that he saw and talked, with Bierce several times In the vicinity of Chihuahua late In 1013, or early in 1914. Later in 1015 he met a sergeant of Villa's army, an old acquaintance, and this man told him about having witnessed the execution of an American who cor responded in every manner with Bierce's description. "This affair took place near Tcamole, a village in the region of Monterey and Saltillo, cast of Chihuahua state, in August, 1913. The Constitutional ists occupied that village while Jen. Tomas Urbina. one of Villa's most bloodthirsty followers, was near by, and between that place and the bor der. American Captured. "One day an American, accompanied By a Mexican, convoying four mules, in one of which was a machine gun. while the others were loaded with ammunition, was captured on the trail, headed toward Icamole, and" taken before Urbina. The Mexican told Urbina that he had been engaged by another Mexican to guide the mules and the American to the con stitutionalist camp at Icamole. That was all he knew. The American ap parently could not speak or undet htand any Spanish, and made no in telligible reply to the questions askod him. , "The bloodthirsty Urbina. who was neer o happy as wnen Killing some one himself or ordering it to be don--, wearied of questioning the prisoners and ordered them to be vliot at once. "The two were stood up In front of a firing squad, when the Mexican threw himself on his knees, stretched out his arms, and refused to have his ejes bandaged. Haying he wanted to "see himself killed." All he a.-ked was that hi face be not mutiluteJ. which was not done. "Seeing his companion on his knees, the American followed 3uit." but ihe Mexican told him to stand up. He did not understand what was said, but remained on his knees, arms out stretched, like his companion, and with unbandaged eyes met his death at the hinds of the firing squad. The two victims were buried by th s-ide of the trail. Exact Description. "The sergeant who witnessed the affair described Bierce exactly, though he had never seen him to his knowl edge. Incidentally It may b- stated that Urbina himself soon after met his death by Villa's orders at the hand.s of the notorious 'Matador Fierro, of Benson and Bauch notor lety.
