Warns Mexican Government
That United States Is Tired
of Shooting and Acts of Vio
lence Along the Border,
(Br Morning Journal Special Leaud Wlrel
Juarez, Mox., June 10. That the
I'nited States la becoming tired of
the shooting and other acts of anarch.
lsls on the California-Mexican border
and that steps must be taken at once
to stop it, is the burden of messages
sent to the Mexican war department
today by General Penjamin Ylljocn,
military adviser to Francisco 1. Mu
derd. General Viljoen expresses the
fear that the AVashington govern
ment may withdraw its offer to allow
Mexican troops to travel through the
I'nited States to Lower California un
less the privilege is promptly taken
advantage of. General Viljoen bases
his advice to Mexico City on many
complaints of residents of California
who threaten to take measures of
their own. one complaint received
today from Los Angeles, Cal., which
typifies many others follows:
"Since June 1 no authentic infor
mation lias Mine to us as to whether
or not you Intend to restore order in
Lower California. The situation there
is growing worse and our people are
contemplating an effort themselves to
gather sufficient force to run the an
archists out of the country. The neei?
is fo great and the ruin that might
follow the dynamiting of the main
lmmperial valley canal is so far
reaching and appalling that we feel
like doing everything possible to re
store order."
General Viljoen today telegraphed
Scnor Maderu as follows:
"The people of the I'nited Slates are
growing impatient over the Lower
California uffair and appeal to as to
take energetic steps. Fear Washington
will withdraw It? offer to, allow us
to take troops and ammunition
through that country unless we act
"More then a week ago," said Gen
eral Viljoen, "I was to have taken COO
lnsurrectos and General Kscud.-ro
was to have taken 1,000 fed. Tils from
Chihuahua. We were to have gone
to Calexico unarmed and after de
truinlnir there we were to arm and
j march across the border into Mexicali.
Lower Callfornfi. Hut the Insnrrec
tos have shown no disposition to
! nuivc and the federal troops are still
being kept at Chihuahua. In answer
; to the complaints from California 1
can only say that it h? up to Madero."
j Passengers arriving from Chihua
hua tonight ray the condition in that
city is becoming unbearable. Five
thousand federal troops with thirteen
generals, Including Vlllar, Lis, Kaba
go and Luipie, are patrolling the city
nluht and day, and hive notified the
lnsurrectos that the peace agreement
did not provide for the surrender of
the city. General Vlllar, commander
of the zone says under no circum
stances will he allow the lnsurrectos
to enter under urms. Artillery and
trendies have been put in place as ir
for a defense.
Outside the city General orosco
with the forces of the lnsurrectos,
says he Is determined not to lay down
arms and he will soon enter the city
by force if necessary. The passen
gers from Chihuahua say a conflict
of some kind is not unlooked for, and
Orosco Is deterred from entering only
by the lad that the federals have su
perior numbers and defenses. FeHr
that orosco might not be able to con
trol his men if they entered is said to
be one of the positions taken by the
Kl Paso, TexaH, Julie 10. Officers

Br Morning Josnutl Special Lmm4 W1r)
Mexico City, June 10. "If 1 should
be elected president Seilor de La Hur
ra will be minister of foreign affairs
and. General Heycs will be minister '.f
war in my cnbinet."
Thus spoke Francisco I. Mad. ro, to
an Associated Press representative to
day at Chapultepce castle, where he
j talked with President de La Harra and
General Heycs. Roth men have con
sented to accept these portfolios,
The meeting was accidental. Ma
dero had been conferring with Presi
dent do La Harra about the political
situation when General lteyes arrived.
Ma.lero was asked to remain. Frank
discussion of the lituution resulted.
General lteyes said this afternoon:
"It is true I ant going to be min
ister of war if Senor Madcro is elect
ed. I am not going to be a candidate
for the presidency or participate in
the elections.
'Just before you came," he said to
the interviewers, "a committee called
on me to ask me to be a candidate
for the presid. ncy, but I told them I
Intended to be a member of Senor
Madero's cabinet If he is elected.
"To offer myself as a candidate
might mean a confusion which would
produce anarchy and I can assure
you both Presid. nt do Ui Harra, Se
nor Madero, and myself will work
earnestly and incessantly to prevent
such a contingency."
Madero's remark that President de
Ua Hurra would return to his recent
post of minister of foreign relations
Is looked upon as an Indication that
the new government will contain rep
resentatives of all elements and will
have a stable efrect on the future ad
ministration. .
Today's conference is believed to
have persuaded de La Harra to stand
by the new department anfl lend Ills
Influence in establishing tranquility.
He is recognized as nn important
factor in eoothinj? the wounds of tin;
ousted parties and Madero Is believed
to be anxious to keep him in the cab
inet, not only for that reason but
because of his familiarity with inter
national affairs.
An indication of what Madero's
policy will be was given in a speech
he made to the cadets of the national
military aaademy, whom he review
ed. "In the re-organization of the army"
he raid, "there will be no interference
with the officers of lino. The disci
pline and training of the military
school is tno.vt valuable and prefer
ence thotilil be given to those who
have had the benefit of its training."
The cabinet appointments proposed
by Jladero In Hie event of election to
the presidency and the substance of
the conference bet wen General Reyes,
President de La Harra and himself
were the main subject of an official
bulletin. It was In part:
"General Keyes declared his pur
pose of supporting and asking his po
litical friends to support the candi
dacy of Madero In the coming presi
dential election. In the event of his
success, Madero has offered the
portfolios of foreign relations and
war and marine respectively to Fran
elsco de La Harra and General Her
nardo Heycs, who accepted them, tak
ing Into consideration, above all, the
vital Interests of their country."

Mexico City, June. 10. Poisoned I
cognac, w hich the lnsurrectos drink I
in a Chinese restaurant, Is alleged to
have been the Immediate cause of the
slaughter of Chinese In Torivon. This
Incident doubtless will become an Is

Tiie revolutionists carried It with
them to a Chinese restaurant, where
they demanded food. Several became

suspicion fell n the Chinese, who
were accused of having poisoned the

The Chineae officials said it was
not impossible that the indemnity to
be demanded might be as much as
100,000 pecos for e'irh of the 316

AV'ashlngton, June 10. Although
Chinese Minister Chang has been out
of touch with the situation In Mexi

be reasonable and will be satisfied, it
Is said, to have th. Ii claims placed on
an equal footing with oilier foreign
claims before the commission to be
appointed to adjust dam igcs caused
by the revolution.
The report that a Chinese cruiser

Washington, June 10, An attempt
was made today before the house com
mittee on expenditures for the depart
ment of Justice to show tb.it the In
dictment of certain cotton "bulls' for
their alleged participation in the so
called bull cotton pool of 1910 was
the result of an appeal to the gov
ernment by the cotton 'bears" for
lulp. The Investigators elicited little
satisfactory testimony.
CnlLal States District Attorney
Henry A. Wise denied that any favor
itism was shown by his office to the
brokers or spinners who were Inter
ested In keeping down the price of
cotton as" compared with that shown
to those who were endeavoring to
keep up the price. Attorney Fi nest K.

The Simla Fo w reck that occurred at

thorough investigation. The orders
ter this Investigation have been issued
from the office of General Superin

wreckage has been going steadily oh
since the disaster and In a few days
it Is expected that not a trace oj the
disastrous collision between the limit
ed and the light engine will remain.
So far death has claimed but two.
who were in the collision. The en
gineer, A. AV. Green, of the light en
gine and the fireman, Ray G. Flowers
of the limited engine who died of his
Injuries early yesterday niorning.
As far as could be learned the rest
of the Injured are getting along s
well as could be expected, and all will
likely recover.
one of the peculiar features of the
wreck is that Miss Hcssie. Wyatt of
Charles, III., who was on her way to
be married in California, was on the
train with her trousseau of weeding
gowns packed in fourteen trunks. The
wreck will cause her to be delayed in
reaching her destination Just ' about
twelve hours and will hence delay the
wedding for a day.' It Is understood
that the trousseau was somewhat dam
aged in tho collision and will have to
be fixed up.
The body of A. AV, Green, the en-
gl r of the light engine who met Ills"
death as n result of the collision of
his engine with tho limited train, was
taken to Uis Vegas for burial yester
day accompanied by an escort of the
