Mexican General Warns Leaders U. S. Will Act Unless Conditions Improve Washington, Sept. 6.? Warning Mexicans that intervention by the United Staite is imminent, General Salvador 'Alvarado, one of the leaders in the Carranza movement throughout its course, has addressed an open let ted to Carranza himself and Generals Obregon and Gonzales in which he ar raigns conditions in Mexico in scathing fashion. Alvarado, who attracted attention of all the Pan_Americas for his ad mr-ntefaation in Yucatan, estimates that the present daily death list in the scattered fighting between Federal tr&cp:; and rebels is one hundred a day. In Mexico City alone, he says, 8000 children die each year for want of proper food, clothing and shelter. A1 vara da,, after trying to make the radical theories of the new Mexican Constitution work in actual practice, declares the system must be chanced. He declares Mexico has passed from cne extreme of an irresponsible, ob structionist Congress to the ether?a despotic, corrupting and ultra-personal presidential regime, without responsi bility or legal restraint. He excoriates the administration of justice, charging that justice is sold to the highest bidder. SERENADERS start trourle Throw Explosive When Bride and Groom Are Missing. Cumberland, Md., Sept.
