MARINES ORDERED TO CUBA TO BE HELD IN
READINESS FOR POSSIBLE USE IN MEXICO
-- i ........
President Taft Is Plainly Worried
Over the Renewal of Hostilities
In the Mexican Capital
IRON CLAD CENSORSHIP
VIRTUALLY CUTS MEXICO
CITY FROM OUTSIDE WORLD
Scant News From Base of Revolution Indicates That Fighting
Between Rebels and Government Continues Unabated.
Taft Determined to Forestall Intervention Unless
Absolutely Necessary, But Will Not Hesi
tate to Act Should Occasion Demand
Washington, February 17.—Two thousand United States
marines from various barracks along the Atlantic coast today
were ordered to Cuba, there to be held in readiness for possible
use in Mexico. Half of them will leave tomorrow noon for Phil
adelphia on the army transport Meade, already on its way from
Newport News for the purpose. The second thousand will start
from Norfolk on the* naval transport Prairie, which, it is ex
pected will clear "Wednesday, The marines will be drawn from
the barracks at Norfolk, Washington, Philadelphia. New York,
Portsmouth, Boston and Charleston.
Guantanamo is the present objective point of 1 lie marines,
who will be established in camp in connection with the fleet
under the command of Rear Admiral Badger. Whether these
men will get further than Guantanamo will depend upon Mexi
can developments.
Ihe marine brigade will be com-!
mand of Col. Lincoln Ivarmany, the
First regiment, which leaves from j
Philadelphia, being in charge of Col. I
George Barnett of Philadelphia, with i
Lieut.-Col. John A. Lajuene of New j
York second in command. The Sec- !
ond regiment, sailing from Norfolk, I
will be under Col. Joseph H. Pendle- j
ton, who was active in the recent ac- j
tivity of American marines in Nicara
gua, and Lieut.-Col. Charles G. Long,
who also was in Nicaragua, will be l
second in command.
The withdrawal of this large num-1
bcr of marines means, it is said, that
that branch of the defensive service
of the country will be obliged to go
entirely unrepresented in the in
augural parade. It was planned to
have about 1000 marines in the long
line on that occasion.
Besides the movement of the marines,
two army transports were ordered tonight,
to proceed at once from Newport News
to Galveston, Tex., where they mlgnt
be close at. hund for the movement of
troops from the border should an emer
gency arise. Karly in the day the third
cavalry at Port Sam Houston was direct
ed to hold itself in readiness to entrain
lor Galveston prepared for foreign ser
vice.
The government has no transports avail- .
aide in gulf waters and investigation dls- i
closed that to engage commercial vessels j
in time of emergency would entail enor
mous expense and delay would result in '
preparing them for transport service. It \
was. therefore, determined to. send two
of the transports at Newport News to j
tiie Texas port to await further orders,
it was not announced which transports!
would be vent, but the McClellan. Sum- i
iier and Kilpatrick are prepared for scr- j
vice.
At the various Atlantic coast barracks j
there are 3830 marines, the number at the j
places to be drawn on in the present !
inurement being:
NcrColk, 785; Philadelphia. 769; New j
Vurk, 573; Portsmouth, N. II., 3G4; Wash- i
Ington, 35b; Boston, 317, and Charleston,
,H$. In addition there are with the At
lantic fleet 14G2 marines.
President Is Worried
President Taft is plainly worried by
the fact that although he has only 15
more days to serve in the White House
the situation in Mexico shows little signs
of becoming levs troublesome. The Presi
dent has no desire to leave over for Mr.
Wilson the settlement of this country’s
relations with Mexico, but lie is decidedly
opposed to taking any measures himself
unless extreme provocation and whole
sale murder or Americans drive him
to it.
The President told friends today that
ho realized what a difficult thing it would
be for a new administration to gather up
the reins of the government and un
derstand the conditions in the southern
republic in a few weeks or in a few

REBELS CONFIDENT;
MADERO RECEIVES
PRESIDENT’S REPLV
Arsenal, Stronghold of Diaz,
Is Well Fortified—The
Federals Are Less
Aggressive
Mexico City, February 16.—(By
Courier to Vera Cruz, February 17.)—
General Mondra^on, in charpe of the
military operations for General Diaz,
on Sunday morning was confident of
the success of the revolutionary mem
bers. He was seen at the arsenal
and had no hesitancy in conducting
the Associated Press correspondent
about the place.
The arsenal appeared to have suffered
little from the federal guns. Two shells
had penetrated the southern wing of the
building causing some destruction with
in, but it was said, and reports from
the commanders appeared to bear out the
assertion, that the number of dead and j
injured within the fortress was small— j
less than 100 all told.
The commissary department was well
stocked with provisions and the paymas
ter's department was shown to he pro
vided with funds. The men are recelv- i
ing two pesos per day and are said
to be contented ami in good fighting spirit.
General Mondragoii gave the informa
tion that General Diaz had received offers
of money in substantial quantities from
persons in the United States.
Forty men of General Biunquet s di- \
vision, it was asserted at the arsenal,
joined Diaz Saturday night. Some of
their officers accompanied them, and it
was added that deserters from the fed
eral lines entered the rebel positions every
day.
General Alondragon attributed the few
casualties in the rebel ranks to the poor
aim of the government artillery men.
Most ot the federal shells, lie said, pass
high over his position, often falling in
the federal ranks beyond.
President Madero today received the re
ply of President Taft to his telegram pro
testing against possible intervention, In
which President Taft assured him that
the reports of the intention of the Vnt
ted States government to land forces in
Mexico wore inaccurate.
“I never expected anything less than

MAJORITY OF WOMEN DO
NOT WANT THE BALLOT
Mrs. Arthur Dodge Heads Anti-Suffragette Campaign—Situa
tion Misrepresented, She Claims—Suffragists
Will Not Ans wer Charges
Washington, February 17.—There will be
no wordy war between advocates of suf
frage for women and those of their sex
who are opposed to thus extending the
franchise according to Miss Agnes Paul,
who Is in charge of tlie woman’s suffrage
headquarters here. Miss Paul today made
it clear that members of the National
American Woman's Suffrage association
would pay no attention to the campaign
now being waged by the anti-suffra
gettes.
"We will pay no attention to the anti
suffrage movement.'’ said Miss Paul. "I
am glad they are carrying on an opposi
tion campaign because it will help us. It
shows we are making progress."
Mrs. Arthur M. Dodge of New York,
who is heading the anti-suffrage cam
paign, arrived in Washington today and
b' gan a search for adequate headquarters
that are to be opened at once. The offices
will be in charge of Miss Minnie Bronson,
general secretary of the national organi
zation.
"We are determined to make it known
to the country that the great majority of
I women do not desire the ballot,” said
Mrs. Dodge. "The suffragists are misrep
resenting the real situation. Of the ‘il,
000,(00 women of voting age in the coun
try, however, even the suffragists claim
only eight per cent have subscribed them
selves suffragists.”
Word was i • -eived today at suffragist
headquarters from Miss Janette Rankin
ol Montana that Sacagawer, the histotis
Indian women who led the Lewis ar.d
(lark expedition through Montana, would

Economists Should Quit Talk
ing or Change Actions
Washington. February IT..After
acrimonious debate tin* Mouse t oils \
passed the buildings bill, authorizing
erection of S.’.'-.Uou.ouo worth or pub
lie structures throughout the country.
Tiie vote on (lie bill was 18 1 to if.
• id tin- opponent!- of the measure wet
unable to muster enough votes to se
cure a roll cull to insure u record
vote.
Representative Fitzgerald of New
York, chairman of the House appro
priations commute*, and Representa
tive Hardwick of Georgia vigorously
attacked*the democratic side for their
support of the bill.
“The sluiin economists who have been
talking economy and advocating pub
lic buildings bills which fasten obli
gations upon the treasury," declared
Mr. Fitzgerald, “should either quit
talking ecoitornv or should attempt to
stop tin* authorizations which make
inevitable the expenditure of large
sums of public money. I denounce as
indefensible this method of passing
u public building bill. It ties together
everybody with an item in It and makes
it impossible to give close scrutiny
and attention to the bill. \ under
stand this bill has been so scientifi
cally prepared that it cannot be de
feated.”
Representative Hardwick was bin
in his denunciation of the bill.
• I believe," ho declared, "honestly
and candldaly that tlt^s is the worst
bill of Mh kind ever reported to an
American House cf Representatlves. J
do not think that in the palmiest day>
of I'annonism as rotten a proposition
ever came to this House.
“Then* are things in this hill no one
can defend, f submit to you that each

knows Unit this bill is not right; that
Instead of being In the interest of tie
public service and of the people, of the
FnlLed States, it is in the* interest • »(
the political fortunes of individual
members on both sides of tills House.'
Representative Burnett, Representa
tive ('lark of Florida and Repreftenta

bill, declaring it was framed on an
economical bases after two years when
no public buildings bills were passed.
