While ap parently inactive and awaiting the re Hult Of the F.l Paso conference rela tive to withdrawal of the American soldiers front Mexico, It was declared tonight by arrivals from the south who are in close toucn with the Mexi can people, thut military officers un der command of Hen. P. Ellas Hallos, military governor of Sonora, have vis ited the larger towns of the Moe t -zuma. district within the last few days, sounding out the people as to whether they were ready to fight the (Jutted States. The reply returned t the headquarters of On. Arnulfo Homes, active commander of (he troops in northern Sonora, is said to have -been that the people were ready to fight and were only awaiting the word. "All is ready," is the word broUgh! by emissaries to the commanders who had sent them among the people. Trust to Raiding ( Food. The Mexicans are aware of the fact that hostilities would mean the catting off of their food supply as well a Iheir source of ammunition replenishment. However, they assert in conversation among themselves that raiding across the holder is nn easy way to replenish their store of food and they will have plenty to eat under any circumstances. Soldiers who have recently come from th .south to the mobilisation camps of the de facto troops in Cu chuta, thirty-five miles south of here , and Fronteras, twenty-nine miles south, are said to openly hoasl that their commanders brought them north to "whip the grlngoes," which they consider an easy task. Much Excitement In Town. There is considerable excitement in the towns along the Nacozari railroad over the ordering of additional troops to Douglas. This is especially true among the soldiers, according to re ports brought here today. Since. the news that the Arizona national guard and two battalions of the Fourteenth infantry are coming, became known, there has been mnrp talk of hostili ties being opened In the immediate future by the Mexicans than ever be fore. This is not confined to the mil itary but is talked among the civil ians, It Is stuted by Americans. Mexicans who have known and spoken to Americans for manv gears are reported as pussing their friends without greeting. Carted for iking "Gringo." At Turicachi, a small Sonora town "it the Nacozari railroad, a Mexican girl went to the train with an Amer ican to bid him goodbye. A captain of the de facto army called her aside nid cursed her, it is reported, asking if she could not find a sweetheart bet ter than a "gringo." As the conference in El Paso ad vanced and it became evident that the American troops wore not to be with drawn, feeling among the Mexicans has become more bitter until an Out break is threatened on the slightest provocation, according to reliable Americans. Considerable uneasiness among Americans in Sonora is felt over the situation and it is their notion that they will be forced to come to the border within a week, or perhaps be fore that time, according to arrivals. Their friends here are quite appre hensive over their safety. rim: OVER BEADS OF JEERIgMG MEXICAN CROWD El Paso, May 11.

LI Leading Nationalist Attacks Government in Bitter Terms; Asquith Steps Into the Breach, V MOnCINI JOU-OIAL SPECIAL LlAIO WINCI London, May 11. The mosi dan gerous factor in Ireland's situation, which has been recognized since the brief rising flashed in the pan, was that the punishment of the rebels would cause a reaction of sympathy among the warmhearted and emo tional people. This threatened dan ger appears to be fast materializing. John Dillon, one of the most re spected of the nationalists, but often one of the bitterest antagonists of British rule, attacked the government today In the house of commons In a speech whic h, for bitter denunc iation, has not been surpassed at Westmin ster since I'arnell's clays sipiilli to lii'laiul. Premier Asquith has personally stepped into the breach and is taking the unprecedented eoum of Journey ing to Dublin to investigate the sit uation on the spot and doubtless to give instruction to General Sir .I"hn Maxwell regarding the policy which the military government must pursue, now that the chief civil administra tors Lord Wimborne. Augustine llir rell'and Sir Matthew Nathan, have retired fmm office. The premier left here tonight by the Irish mall train on his way to that city.

He announced that he was geing to consult with the au thorities In order to arrive at some arrangement satisfactory to Irishmen ,,f all parties, and no statesman ever attempted a harder achievement. He frankly declared that the present sit nation could not continue. Manv of the newspapers, particu larly the liberal organs, call Upon the Irish factions to seize the present op portunity for settling their long stand ing differences. Dish Disarmament Planned, The Marquis of LaOSdOWne intimat ed to the house of lords that the dis armament -f all Ireland will be un dertaken. This would mean the dis armament of the Ulster and national ist volunteers and whether that can be done depends on Sir Bdward ar son and John Hedmond more than on any other individuals.

Constantinople reports that in the Caucasus region around Mount Hope the Turks in an attack drove out the Itussians from positions about nlnej and one-half miles in etent and fore- j ed them to retreat eastward, and like-1 wise to the southeast of Mamahntun put the Russians to flight. The Hermans, who were defeated recently in the Kondoa-lrangi dls-j triet of Hast Africa, have been rein forced and now nre advancing on the British. A dispatc h from the British commander, however, says his troops are quite sufficient to deal with the Hermans. The British government will permit, I under certain stipulations, the feeling: of the civil population of Poland by an American commission. Hritish Government Censored, The Hritish government in both houses of parliament has come in for much adverse criticism for its han-j dling of the Irish situation, especially for the executions that followed the recent uprising. Premier Asquith told the house of commons that thirteen persons hud been shot for participation in the re volt, hut promised that court mar tials in the cuse of murder churges would be hereafter Conducted public ly. The house of lords passed a resolu tion expressing dissatisfaction with the administration of Irish affairs. Premier Asquith has left London for Dublin to study the situation.

The Hritish gov ernment has just announced its ac ceptance of the plan submitted by Walter Hlnes Page, the American am bassador, last February, for feeding tho civilian population of (Poland lo an American commission.

It is stipulated thut the food Is to be shipped from the United States in Herman ships under a neu tral flag, and that Hermany and Aus tria agree as part of the scheme to carp properly for the populations of Serbia, Albania and Montenegro. The foreign office expressed the hope that the centrul powers will promptly accept the conditions, so as to hasten the beginning of the work Herbert C. Hoover, chairman of the American commission for relief in Belgium, will go to Hrussels tomor row and may be able to facilitate the negotiations. Haise for Arsenal Workers. Washington, May 1 1.

When the order was served lor the national guard to go on active duty the president of the college called a special faculty meeting and it was unanimously decided, since the young men would have completed satisfac torily the courses they were pursuing, that a special meeting should be held and that the students should be grant ed the honors which would have fall en to them had the militia not been called out. After several miisicnl selections Dr. George B. Ladd, president of the col lege, told of the purpose of the meet ing and directed a few helpful re marks to the members of the national guard who ate students of the col lege. He was followed by Prof. J. II. Vaughun, professor of history and economics, with a short talk relative to the crisis now existing between tin United States and Mexico. He point ed out the fact that all civilized coun tries had reached their high plane of enlightenment through the means of barbarous warfare, and that Mexico, In the light of past history, would per haps accomplish something from the apparently useless fighting there for the past few years.

It was Just eighteen years ago, to the day, when a similar scene was enacted, as the rough riders left lor the e.-cst and Cuba.
