are prepared to take steps to Investi

of the Senate will urge that the For

Investigating the Mexican situation,
make an immediate inquiry and re
port at once to the Senate.
The plea of the Carranza govern
ment, that Jenkins has been offered
ft??? release under ball, bears little
weight, here. It la believed that thl?
has been an attempt on the part of
the Mexican government to secure
substantiation of Its course. If Jen
kins had accepted ball it Is believed
here that this would have given im
mediate rise to a claim that, by so
doing, Jenkins had recognized the
right of the Mexican government to
throw hi ? in Jail.
The whole situation has caused no
unusual comment here. It Is being
taken calm!y. and officials who have
stead !y believed that the time must
come for a complete showdown with

this time Is now at hand.
The Administration is not anxious
for Intervention, but It Is prepared to
resort to it If necessary.

The genetal feeling here today is
that the United States and Mexico are
very near a rupture, much nearer than
at any time in recent history. In past
wangles with Mexico, it is pointed
out, the policy of America had the

years of International differences, all

lences on tbe recent death of his wife,
? Unknown In Clnrend??.
No one could be found In Clarendon
today who had ever known a Fred !
Warren there, and it also developed
that he had never received mail at the ;
Clarendon postoffice.
Warren was described by the Rich- |
mond police as being rather flashily
dressed, and had the appearance of a
chauffeur. He gave his age aa twenty
Caffes was brought to Providence
Hospital In this city this morning by
his brother. It was reported at the
hospital that the Injured man has a.
chance for recovery. Detective
Sweeney, armed with a "John Doe"
warrant, wili leave for Richmond this
afternoon to bring back the man un
der arrest in that city.
Assaulted on Lonely Road.
Caffes was assaulted on what ts
known as Hooe road. About fifty
yards off the road detectives found the
spot where the assault was committed.
Several pieces of bloodstained tissue
paper, which the police believe was
used by the chauffeur's assailant to
wipe his hands on after the had slash
ed the hackman's throat, were found
on the spot.
Torn bits of the chauffeur's Identifi
clation card from Caffes' automob le
also were found by the police. Neith
er the knife nor blackjack could be
found, and officials at the reformatory
and several of the Inmates will con
duct a further search this afternoon,
("aff?'? assailant, after felling him
with blows over the head with a
blackjack, tore the Injured man's col
lar from his neck and slashed his
throat. The collar was not found.
On hiring Caff? Wednesday riipht
his assailant told him to drive to Oc
co?-|uan, where he was to'attend a
wedding. Investigation this morning
showed that there was a wedding at
Pohick on Wednesday.
Familiar With Road.
Officials at the reformatory pointed
out that the road was very seldom
frequented, leading the police to be
lieve that Caffe's assailant was
familiar with that locality.
The search this morning was con
ducted by. Detective Sweeney, of Po
lice Hesdquarters; Captain Petitt and
Dr. Hornbaker. i?-?*.li of whom are sta
tioned at the reformatory.
The spot where the assault was
committed was on the property of the
District reformatory.
Pound Ity Chane??.
It was only by chance that Caffes
was found yesterday after he had
lain, with only short periods of con
sciousn? ss, for more than seventeen
hours In the mud and rain In the
thicket. He was found yesterday aft
ernoon by Adolph Kienast, of ?l?-'l
Fifth street northwest, and Dr. Lewis
H. Ktaskin, of 731 Twelfth street
northwest, who were hunllng through
the woods netr Occoquan. They
stumbled over the? unconscious form
of Caffee and took him to the Occo
quan Hospital.
On Wednesday evening shortly
after 7 o'clock, Caffes said, he was
hired by a man to take him to a wed
ding near Occoquan. The passenger
sat in the front seat with the chauf
feur, and on reaching a point some
listance from the workhouse, ^the
driver was ordered to stop.
Kxplalnln? to the driver that he
was l-oing to pick up two girls who
were g'ing to the wedilng the man
invited the driver to the houae, say
ing they would get aomething to eat
Refore Caffes alighted from the ma
rnine, his passenger Instructed him
to turn the automobile around In the
ros?" hend'n-r toward Washington
After turning the car around, Caffas
followed his passenger acroaa th?
Fairfax road aad Into the thicket
Hardiy had they entered the wood?
when the man ?tumbled, and told
Caffea that his leg wa.? badly hurt.
Caff?? hurried up to assist him and,
was felled by repeated blows over the
head with a blackjack.
His assailant, after robbing him of
$65, slashed his throat with a pocket
knife, and leavinir his victim for dead,
headed toward Washington in the j
I)?-*e>r1t>? Assailaat. j
CalTes told the police yesterday ;
afternoon that he recovered con- ?
?ctousness once, staggered a short
distance, but collapsed.
Immediately after hearing the In- ;
Jured man's story, a description of I
his assailant was sent to several of i
the larger Eastern cities and immedi
ate search was instituted here .
Physicians at the hospital told the
police this morning that Caffes' con
dition ts criticai. Investigation of
the wounds on his throat disclosed
that the knife had not pierced the
Jugular vein, but the injured driver
wa? weak from loss of biood. j
The assault on Caffes is similar in j
many respects to the killing of John \
P. Werree. a Washington Jitney |
driver, who was beaten to death by
two soldiers who hired him to drive
them Into Virginia in May, 1918.
Werres' lifeless body was found
several days later by the local police !
in the woods in Alexandria county. ?
