A combined German-Mexico force planned to invade the United States, attacking the border States with 5,000 troops coincident with Ludendorfs final drive in France, according to a state ment issued by Dr. P. B. Altendorf, who, from July, 1017, to April, 1019, was connected with the army intel ligence office and acting as a gov ernment secret agent in 3Iexico.. Dr. Altendorf declared the Black Tom explosion in New Jersey was the esult of a German-Mexican plot and that he probably caused the ar rest of a spy who boasted that he caused the explosion. The spy was known as Pablo Wabirski. The spy was sentenced to death jand Presi dent Wilson is now reviewing the case. Even after the armistice was sign ed, Mexican officials continued in the pay of Germany and. while Ger many was prohibited from manufac turing war munitions. German capital had provided for starting large munitions factories in Mexico, according to the statement. Dr. Al tendorf said Jie discovered two Ger man wireless stations In Mexico and that he reported to the gov ernment the German submarine raid along the American Atlantic coast line a month prior- to its start. Particularizing as to the German plan to have munitions made in Mexico, Dr. Altendorf said the German consul. Rademacher, at Guaymas. arranged with Governor Calles to.build a cement plant at Hermosillo, Sonora. with a monthly capacity of 00.000 bags. Tht product was to be used for rebuild ing piers and constructing new ones "The foundations were completed in July. 1017." said Dr. Altendorf. "when I reported the scheme in time to stop it." As late as November, 1017, declared Dr. Altendorf, he personally carried & request from Governor Calles to Rademacher- for- '$150,000. saw the money put in a bag and carried the bag. accompanied by Rademacher to Calles. "Von Eckhardt." he stated, "had guaranteed, to Carranza an abundance of capital to turn Mexico Into an in dustrial country. "Von Eckhardt went to Germany last April for the express purpose of financing German corpora tions and ' perfecting other arrange ments for building great chemical plants, textile factories, tanneries, and all the other industries necessary to make Mexico independent of the United jStates and F.urope."' (Baron von Eckhardt was Germar? ambassador to Mexico.) "The full significance of all this becomes apparent , when 1 tell you that part of the German scheme pro vided for great munition plants at Mexico City which would make it un necessary for Mexico to import war materials in the future.

Jj i i ing Americans out and confiscating thir property is explained by the fact that Germans, with plenty of money stand ready to pick up the property at bargain rates. Carranza's plans for acquiring property do not always go through without frictfon. In June he sent two emissaries to Pelaez, the so called bandit who dominated the Tarn pico oil fields, with a letter offering Pelaez $200,000 in cash and the posi tion of governor of the state of Tam aulipas if h would hand over the oil properties so that he could sell them to Germans.
