VOLUME XXXXin _ BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, ‘MONDAY, JULY 28, 1913 NUMBER 83 Charles B. Dixon Released; Government Takes Action AGENT IS RELEASED Wounded Immigration In spector Brought To El r Paso Yesterday MAKES DEMAND IN VIGOROUS TERMS Consul Edwards Also Demands Trial and Punishment of Those Respon sible for the Crime—Negro Is Placed in Jail FI Pnuo, Tex., July 27.—Clmrle. B. Dixon. Jr., the I nlted Staten Immlwra tlon Inspector who wax shot In Ju>rfK Saturday by Mexican soldiers, was re leased from the Juarez hospital and brought to El Paso Ipday after Amer ican Consul T. 1). Edwards hud mafic a demand for his release and for the arrest of the men who shot him. Mexican Consul Miranda and Guillermo Porras, former secretary of state of Chi huahua, also Interceded for the release of Dixon, ufter conferences with the United Slates officials, who represented to the Mexicans the grave Impression that had been produced in Washington by the news of the shooting of the inspector. MAKES DEMAND IN VIGOROUS TERMS Thy demand ot Consul Kdwards was in vigorous language. First telling the Mex ican authorities that Dixon must be de livered up to his friends and permitted to be brought to El Paso without delay, the consul said relative to reparation: "I do not merely request the arrest of these men, but In the name of the United States government, which 1 have the honor to represent, I demand their arrest ! and their trial and punishment for this j crime. My government will hold the mill- ; tary authorities of Juarez personally re 1 sponsible for failure to obey this com mand.” Arthur Walker, the negro whom Dixon was investigating when he was arrested, and the soldiers who made the arrest im mediately were placed in jail, according to the report of Colonel Castro, command ing the Juarez garrison, to E. W. Berk shire, supervising inspector of Immigra tion for ihe United States on the Mexican bolder . PHYSICIANS THINK MAN WILL RECOVER Dixon was released to Mr. Berkshire and brought to rci.Paso to a hospital, where his physicians believe he will recover. Mr. Berkshire said tonight lie made no demands on the Mexican officials, but ( bad reported to his superiors the facts ! concerning the arrest of himself and In- ! specter Clarence Ghtley, when they went I to Juarez Saturday following the shoot- \ ing of Dixon. Mr. Berkshire said that from what he had learned the negro. Walker, when he j learned that Dixon 'Mis in Juarez inves tigating a white slave case in which Walker had been implicated, informed the Mexican officials that Dixon was there with a bottle of chloroform, ready to ■ chloroform and kidnap him. it is said the negro then bought drinks I for the soldiers who were to make the j arrest. When the Mexican soldiers had appre hended Dixpn they marched hltn to the | suburbs of the city instead of to the military barracks or city hall. This, ac cording to Dixon’s statement, reiterated tonight, led him to suspect that he was j going to be executed. As a matter of self-preservation, he de clared. he fled and became the target of many bullets, only one of which took ef fect, striking him in the back and pene trating his body.. Another bullet struck his shoe. REFUSED TO ALLOW CLOTHING REMOVED Wounded, he was taken to the Juarez hospital by his captors and there, un der a military guard of litre© soldiers he was kept from Saturday afternoon until late today when he was removed to El Paso. The Mexicans refused even to allow the blood-soaked clothing to be removed, although they did permit Dr. Tappan, of the immigration office, to cut the clothing and treat the wound Sat urday afternoon. Indignation at the Mexicans runs high In El Paso tonight and the treatment accorded Dixon has strained relations in this city between Americans and Mex icans as has no other incident attend ant upon the present revolution. John Shake Strung to Tele phone Pole and Riddled With Bullets Dunbar, Ga., July £7.—John Shake, a negro, was lynched here late today by a mob which captured him after an all day search through swamps. The negro w-as strung up to a telephone pole In the heart of the local negro settlement, and his body riddled with bullets. His corpse was left flanging. Shake was supposed to be the burglar who last night shot and dangerously wounded J. F. Hammock, a local mer chant. Hammock visited his establish ment late last night and discovered a ne gro in the act of rifling the place. Or j dered to come out, the intruder loaded a I shotgun which he found In the store, and I emerging, fired two charges into Ham Imock’s body. f Hammock was able to give a description * of his assailant, and citizens armed them selves and started in pursuit Immediately. Bloodhounds today led the searchers to the edge of a swamp 15 mile? from here, I where the negro was captured. Members j of the posse were forced to wade through water up to their necks to reach the fugl | tuv* I —1 — — Demands Immediate Punish ment of Soldiers Who Shot Dixon MESSAGE COUCHED IN STRONG TERMS Latest Mexican Outrage Stirs Nation al Capital—Ambassador Wilson Confers With President on Situation Today Washington, July 27.—Strong rep resentations, the most drastic in phraseology that have been made Mince the present American administration came into power, were made to the Huerta government in Mexico today. The United Slates government de manded not only the prompt arrest, court martial and punishment of the Mexlcau federal soldiers who shot Charles ft. Dixon, nil American Im migration official at Jiiarrx. Mex.. hut the Immediate release of Charles Ills sell and ftleruard McDonald, mining managers. Imprisoned h.v federal sol diers at Chihuahua City, and said to be threatened with execution. So serious were these incidents regard ed in official circles that they overshad owed largely theoretical considerations of policy which the visit of Ambassador Henry I<ane Wilson has brought to a climax. The ambassador himself was so exercised over the developments in Mex ico, that he dictated two strong telegrams, one to the embassy at Mexico City and the other to the American consul at Juarez, and while Secretary Bryan slight ly modified their tone, they were approved and promptly dispatched. WILSON DECLINES TO DISCUSS AFFAIR Ambassador Wilson declined to discuss the affair, but he will probably explain his views on such happenings when he meets President Wilson at 2:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon for a general exam JThHitifi of conditions Mexico. Tim President had Ambassador Wilson's lotijj repert in hand today, studied it carefully and after an early conference tomorrow with Secretary Bryan will be prepared to inquire of the ambassador what reme dies he would suggest. In the meantime, the ambassador would give no inkling of the recommendations he lias in mind beyond the general state ment that ids plan would seal the friend ly relations between Mexico and the Unit id States and piotect likewise the in terests of American citizens in the south ern republic. Important Factor The ambassador’s experience with out bursts against American citizens such as those against which the American gov ernment today lodged a protest will make him an important factor in whatever pol icy is adopted toward the Huerta gov ernment on account of yesterday’s devel opments at Juarez and Chihuahua. The demand that the soldiers at Juarez be court martlaled and that the guilty be punished is a much more pointed request than has hitherto been voiced by the American government. Although McDonald, who is Blssell’fi fellow prisoner at Chihuahua, is re ported to be an English subject, the demands for protection covered both Individuals and the American consul at Chihuahua was ordered to go to the extreme of precaution to prevent harm from befalling the two mining men. Confers With Officials , .Secretary Bryan was at the state de partment for a short time today con ferring with subordinate officials in the Katin-American division. Fie stated later that the telegrams ordering an investigation constituted the only ac tions that would be taken for the pres ent, but thai the American government intends to pursue its inquiries vigor ously. While tlie demands today were di rected toward the Huerta government, the constitutionalists, according to re ports here, are making every effort to gain favor with the United .States by affording all possible protection to Americans and their interests. OF lURKJUTOES Country About Malgara Is Converted Into a Human Slaughter House Constantinople, July 26.—(Delayed in transmission.)—Trustworthy reports of appalling massacres and devastation by Turkish irregular troops come from dis tricts in Thrace, which the Turks are reoccupying. The country about Malgara. northeast of Gallipoli, according to re ports, has been converted into a human slaughter house. Bulgarians pillaged and burned Moslem villages and massacred their inhabitants, and the Turks wreak ing dreadful vengeance on the Christian villages which the Bulgarians spared. The Turkish troops who iirst advanced committed only a few murders. The ir regular Turkish troops and Kurdish regu lars who followed, however, worked their will on the Christians of Malgara and 18 ^ illages in the neighborhod. The Turkish government issued strict orders to officers to avoid reprisals by tlie troops, but they have been unable j to restrain the men. i Bucharest, July 27.—A, report is current | here that the Servians have captured the fortress at Vidin, Bulgaria, on the Da nube 130 miles south of Belgrade. w ____ REMOVAL OF CONVICTS FROM SING SING PRISON FOUND NECESSARY TO QUELL RIOTOUS STRIKERS THE OLD SING SING PRISON AT OSSINING ON THE HUDSON KEEPER J. OONNAUGHTON. Following a second fire in Sing Sing prison, which supposedly was set by a dissatisfied convict, IOC men employed in the shoe shop, went on strike. They issued an ultimatum to the warden that they would not work longer unless the 200 men of the 'knitting gang,” who had been confined, were let out oif their cells. The warden ordered the Strikers marched to the mess hall, where dinner was served to them. They ate amid a suppressed stato of excitement. They were' then marched out, not to the shop, however, but to their cells, where they too were locked up. Jvater all strike leaders were transferred to Albany for safe keeping. MAY GET TOGETHER Wilson Working With “In surgents”—Tariff Bill in Last Stages Washington, July 27.—President Wilson has received further assurances from loaders' in Congress that his programme of currency reform will receive favorable action at this session of Congress. These assurances have been made in the face of the sharp split among democrats of the House banking and currency commit tee and in spite, also, of the desire of many democrats in the Senate to delay currency action until the December ses sion. Rapid progress lias been made on the ‘aritf bill in the Senate and the Preal dent and his congressional advisers have been encouraged at the prospect of the passage of the tariff hill much earlier than had been expected. Republican senaU'rti, ii.'i. iiV.-.l at e\j*ry turn in th^lr efforts to amend the bill, have given way on much of thoir proposed opposition,’ and the democrats propose to push the revision bill rapidly during the coming week. Confers With Insurgents While the democrats of the House cur rency committee have found it impossible to agree on the Glass-Owen currency bill, the House leaders and President Wil son believe the measure can be whipped into shape in a democratic caucus, if it is necessary to adopt that course. The President lias been conferring with the so-called •'insurgent#” one by one and cl tained their views and ascertained the strengtn of their opposition. It is believed tlie bill could be taken into caucus with the backing of the Presi dent, Democratic Deader Underwood, Speaker Clark and Chairman Glass, and perfected there and given the endorse • ment of the democratic party. Further efforts will be made this w’eek to bring the House committee members together on the hill, but should the attempt fail, the administration is prepared to4 push the currency measure into the House without delay. 1 hrough Early Stages The tariff bill has gone through its early stages 4n the Senate with unexpect ed rapidity. Few' members have made general tariff speeches and it is believed the debate will be meager during the next two or three weeks. The chemical schedule had been practically completed yesterday, the earthenware tariff will be taken up tomorrow with Senator stone in charge of the debate. Interest in the revision has flagged throughout the week and indications point to less republican opposition as the bill progresses. Senator La Follette has not yet entered the debate. He has employed two experts for many w'eeks in preparing substitutes for many schedules of the democratic tariff. When these are offered the Wis consin senator is expected to lead a hard light for their adoption and dem ocratic leaders arc looking forward to that phase of the debate as most likely to cause delay. Will Offer Substitutes Senators LaFollette and Smoot each will offer substitutes for the democratic woolen tariff. A concerted effort is to be made on the republican side to break up the democratic ranks on the free wool issue, but democratic leaders insist their woolen tariff will go through by a safe margin without change. Congress is “standing by” as to the Mexican situation, waiting for an out come of negotiations now going on in the executive # departments, before at tempting to formulate any definite ex pression as to a Mexican policy^ The President has encountered fur ther opposition in the Senate to recent appointments. Several of his diplomatic appointments still remain unconfirmed, and a fight is being made against sev eral minor appointments. Objections by Senator Vardaman have now raised an Issue over Adam Patterson, the ne gro recently nominated for register of the treasury. Senator Vardaman has declared he will oppose the confirma | tion of Patterson. No General Programme No general programme of opposition to the President’s appointments' has j been carried out by republicans, how ever, notwithstanding premises of trou ble given last February when demo j crats held up President Twft's final ap pointments. Out of neartjjy 2000 post office appointments sent in by Presi | dent Wilson, all but about 300 have been confirmed and those are held back, in the majority of cases, only for the usual routine expectation. The lobby investigation to be re sumed tomorrow' by the Senate investi gating committee is approaching an end. as far as the Senate is Cblicemed, according to members of the commit tee. An opportunity is to be given of ficers of the National Association of Manufacturers for a limited cross-ex amination of Martin M. Mulhall, who claims to have been for many years their “lobbyist” and secret political agent. LOCAL OPTIONISTS WILL CALL CONVENTION SOON TO DECIDE ON CANDIDATE Conference at Capital Yes terday Practically Decid ed to Pick Man for the Next Governor THREE OF PRESENT CANDIDATES FAVOR LOCAL OPTION ISSUE Regarded as Likely. That Henderson, Kolb or Wallace Will Be Decided on Rather Than Bring in a New Man By L..8. BETTY Montgomery, July 27.—(Special.) leaders in the movement which made Emmet O'Neal the standard bearer ot lie local dptlonists Hi .19W9 are con sidering the advisability of calling to gether a convention within the next month or two for the purpose of de ciding upon a local option candidate for governor in the next state election. Information to tills effect was given out today by several prominent polit ical leaders of the stale, who met here for a short conference. These men de clared that today’s conference was not •tile ilrst that lias iieen held In the state for the purpose of determining the wisdom of another local option con vention. LIQUOR ISSUE WILL STILL PREDOMINATE In the opinion of local optionlsts the present campaign for governor is j based largely upon two issues—state j wide prohibition or local option. They declare that the present race is slm | ilar to the amendment fight in 1909,, the principal difference being that j whereas the contest in 1909 was wheth er or not there- should be a constitu-, tional provision prohibiting the sell ing of liquor in the state, the present fight between the two forces has to do largely with whether or not the leg- ■ islature shall enact state-wide prohi bition laws. ** The purpose of the local option con vention, if called, will be to concen trate forces upon one candidate, to draft a platform atid to pledge the can- ; didate of their choice to abide by that platform. TO SELECT SOMEONE ALREADY IN RACE While it is not believed that the local option convention will decide upon any local option candidate not already an nounced, there is every indication that the convention will select one of those already in the race for governor. Charles Henderson, Capt. Reuben F. ! Kolb and John H. Wallace, Jr., have all j announced on the local option platform, and should there be another local op-1 tlon convention, there is every proba bility that one of these gentlemen will be selected as the standard bearer of that party in the present campaign. While a number of prominent local op tionlsts have suggested the possibility of a new candidate to represent them in the present fight for governor, It is believed that; the convention will deter mine upon one of the local option candi dates already announced, and will ask that he receive the support of that party, i CONCENTRATION OF FORCES IS NECESSARY Concentration is the note sounded by' the various local option leaders, who! have visited Montgomery during the past few weeks. They believe that the same issues that confronted the people of the | state in 1909. when the amendment fight occupied the stage of attention, are be fore the people in the present campaign, though under a different guise. While the first fight meant a constitutional pro- | vision prohibiting the selling of liquor, I they declare that the present contest is | based upon whether or not the legisla ture shall enact statewide laws. None of the local option leaders who have been In conference In Montgomery! during the past few weeks will allow'! their names to be mentioned. They con- ] stitute some of the most Important ale ment in the state and took a leading part In the movement In 1909. Governor O’Neal declines to say wheth | er or not he has participated In any of the aforesaid conferences, though admit ting that be had learned of the move ment to call together another local op- j tion convention. Tax Settlement Marlon, July 27.—(Special.)—Charles E, King, Jr., tax eollector for Perry county, made hla final settlement with the state treasurer this week. Inspiration of Big Demon stration in London—Put Back in Jail London, July 27.—Sylvia Pankhurst. the militant suffragette, who was out , on license under the "cat and mouse law," was the leader of a suffragette demonstration today which surpassed all previous Sunday afternoon affairs of the sort. During the rioting which followed, Miss Pankhurst was rear rested and taken to Holloway jail. The meeting, held in Trafalgar square by the men’s federation for woman's miff. inn! tlTe Bftst Bud* branch of the Women's Social and Po litical union, had been announced in ad vance and this fact and also a rumor that a charge upon Premier Asquith’s residence with resolutions was planned, brought enormous crow'ds into the square. “On to Downing street.” was the watchword, and but for vigorous work by the mobilized police, who arrested Miss Pankhurst and 20 men and women supporters, there would have been win dow smashing and perhaps worse dam age at the premier’s house. The pro cession of men and women marched from White Chapel to Trafalgar spuarc with constantly growing crowds follow ing. It entered the square with the band playing the Marseilles and planted ban ners on the plinth of the Nelson col umn, Miss Pankhurst made a dramatic appearanoe from among the crowd and was dragged to the plinth amid great cheering. When the demonstration had subsided she made an impassioned speech. “The time for speaking is over,” she I said. “Deeds, not words, are wanted. Dot us all go to Downing "street.” She concluded by saying she was go ing to defy the authorities and carry resolutions to the premier's residence her self. A roar of approval greeted tills an nouncement, and in an instant Miss Pank hurst, with a bundle of papers in her hand, was swept off the plinth by the mob and the square was a mass of ex cited and struggling people. Ride Into Crowd ' The huge crowd* MIbs Pankhurst lead* ing, moved down Whitehall toward Down ing street. A platoon of police which had come at double quick from Scotland Yard, formed a cordon across the road, which was effectively aided by a block ade of wheeled conveyances. Mounted po lice rode into the crowd, scattering It and driving the people down various streets, while officers Iri plain clothes got possession of Miss Pankhurst after a fist fight with her bodyguard of East End youths. The mounted men cleared a way for the prisoner to a cab. Miss Pankhurst was driven to Holloway jail to serve the remainder of -her sentence or stay until she is again released through a hunger strike. In the station house she strug gled desperately with the officers and smashed a window with a rule. After Miss Pankhurst had been taken into custody, two women were arrested for throwing stones at Mr. Asquith’s win dows. During the rioting several police men were badly injured.

TRIAL OF LEO FRANK Is Charged With Murder of Mary Phagan—Both Sides Ready Atlanta. Ga., July 27—Peo M. Frank, former superintendent of the National Pencil company’s factory here, will be placed on trial tomorrow morning before Judge P. S. Roan of the Fulton superior court, charged with the murder of 14 year-old Mary Phagan. who was em ployed at the establishment of which Frank was head. On the morning of April 27, Newt Pee, negro watchman at the pencil factory, notified the police that he had found the body of a widte girl In the basement of the plant. Investigation proved that the girl had been murdered and her body placed where the tttjrgro claimed ho dis covered it. Several men were arrested as suspect*, among them being Leo Frank; the watch hfajL Lom t Lee, and a ncg^bst* tiweeper named James Conley.' Of tliefce, however, only Frank was indicted for the murder. Owing to the baffling nature of the mystery, and the apparent inability of police, detective* and private investiga tors to apprehend the person or persons who killed the girl and placed her body where it was discovered, , public interest in the case ha* been sustained. For this reason it It* believed that there will be considerable difficulty in securing a jury to try Frank, and a venire of 141 tales men has been drawn to meet the unusual requirements of the case. Uolicilor General Hugh M. Dorsey stated tonight that he had no reason for bellcv- I ing that both sides would nbt be ready i to enter upon the trial when the case is I called tomorrow.

I Refused to Send Guard of Marines to Protect Amer- j cans at Summer Resort | Washington. Jufry 27.—Officials here approve the course of Rear Admiral Nicholson, commander of the Asiatic fleet, who refused to send a guard of marines to Ku-Ling. the central china summer resort, where Americans had become apprehensive because of the disorders in China. Admiral Nicholson has reported to the navy department that he acted after consulting with British, German and French command ers, all of whom advised him against furnishing the guard. I The request for marines was made by Charles Williams of the American lega tion at Peking. In transmitting the re quest to Admiral Nicholson, Acting Secretary Roosevelt authorized the cotn mander of the American squadron to use his discretion in the matter. As Ku-Ling is on elevated ground it is said not to be in immediate danger except from stragglers. The gungoat Helena, the American vessel nearest Ku-Ling, is at KiK iang, in the Yangtse river and officials here point out that-if Admiral Nicholson sent any of her small complement of marines to Ku-Ling. the vessel might become an easy prey of the warring faction*.

Co mer ha* turned the hatterlen of hi* wrath on every former aupporter uhoie naplratlou* hove rroaaed the path of hla ambition, and declaring that It la Ineoneelvable to lilm that a man who had been governor of Alabama would “attempt to gain vote* by what be knew waa a deliberate perveralon of facta,*’ Governor O’Neal today replied to the attack upon him ami hla ad mliilatration by Mr. Comer In hla apeeeb at Gallic* « Impel. Governor O'Neal's reply to Mr. Co mer In largely free of personal allu sions. The governor takes up separately each of Mr. Comer’s charges, explains them at length, and declares that If Mr. Comer continues his policy of attacking the present administration he will learn that blows can be given as well as received. GOVERNOR VOTED FOR MR. COMER The governor states that he voted for Mr. Comer Hnd that like Mr. Co mer he was elected on a local option platfo rm. "He repudiated his platform and forced state-wide prohibition," says the governor, "and I carried out the com mand of my plat-form and restored local option."

The gov ernor then refers to the Gunnel's de falcation which occurred during tne Coiner administration, stating that It remained for him to discover this dis crepancy. "The American people love a fighter." declares the governor in conclusion, a fighter of the type of Woodrow Wilson, who courageously and ably advocates great measures and policies who hurls a shining latu-e full and fair at the brazon front of the corrupt special In terests and who Indulges in no person al abuse or unkind personal allusions." Tlie governor said that he Is willing Ut.nlfno-I an Tno.l Copper Employes in Michi gan Carry Out Wishes of Military Authorities Calumet, Mich..
