THE BIRMINGHAM AGE-HE RALD
► VOLUME XXXXIH POSSESSION OF CITY Official Messages State •Rebels Hold All Positions Except Main Barracks CAPTIVES MUST TAKE OATH OF ALLEGIANCE Carranza Tells Reporters Time Com I ing When World Can See Cause Which He Heads Is Cause of Justice—Receives Ovation Juarez, Mexico, March 29.—An official f message from the front tonight states that fighting is still going on for the possession of Torreon. jj The telegram says the rebels now hold all positions except the main barracks and two smaller barracks. In the last 24 hours it is reported that General Villa took Cerro De Iia Cruz and the Torreon foundry. * Another telegram admits a rebel loss in the last six days f>f 900 killed and ' wounded and places the federal loss at 2628. As there already are at Chihauhau 600 wounded, the report of the rebel losses i is thought to have been minimized. ) Among the rebel wounded is Gen. Tomas Urbina. It is said that private soldiers taken prisoners are being taken into the rebel tanks, but their officers are executed, 'unless they take the oath of allegiance to the constitutionalist cause. All ir regular troops in the federal garrisou are executed on capture. - « Juarez, Mexico, March 29.—Gen. Venus tiano Carranza, first chief of the revolu tion, was welcomed to Juarez today. In the last few weeks the general has ridden horseback for 500 miles and in the last two months he has traveled 2000 miles in the same way. % He looked the picture of health and vigor, a living contradiction to storie3 that he was feeble and that he had con stant recourse to stimulants in order to bear up, and other reports of a sim ilar nature. His appearance also brand ed many lithographs of him as libels, for they made him appear old and rather thin. All afternoon automobiles and carriages streamed out the road past the race track and along the railroad to antici pate his arrival. The road held a strag gling procession of these vehicles, bi cycles, saddle horses, and men, women and children in gala attire, each with a * bit of the national red. white and green. Gen. Manuel Chao, military governor of tho state of Chihuahua, who came here to formerly welcome the jefe suprema, galloped with his staff to a point three miles south of the city. Here General Carranza and his stafT find the reception committee met and t'aen re-ensued a long wait for the troop tiain bearing the horses and men /of V Carranza’s own army. Visitors were eager to catch a gliip/pse of the one man in Mexico whom Gen eral Villa recognizes as chief. He is a big man, physically* and despite his ft5 years, looks as if he could still hold h’S own in a yrestling match or a bout with the gloVes. His shoulders are broad and his chest deep. The heard alone was true to the pictures—gray and of medium length. He was in uniform, spic and span for the occasion. To those who were pre at liter] to him he stretched a big, strong hand with a firm, warm grip. A “Have you any advices from Torreon?** he was asked. “I think there has been no news since last night,” was the reply. "Perhaps Gen eial Villa has not yet taken the city.” He added that he had no occasion to modify his decree of several months ago whereto he stated that no art. or contract Of the Huerta government would he rec ognized should the revolutionists suc ceed in capturing Mexico City. ‘Huerta is not President of Mexico, and none of his acts can he legal, and therefore none of them can be binding,” • he said. Talks to Newspaper Men When the newspaper men were Intro duced to General Carranza he smiled and said: —- “Well, I suppose you want me to say something.” The insinuation was ad mitted and the general after the manner of a man who recognized another weari siine duty, continued: “The time Is comihg when the whole world can plainly see that the great k cause of which I have the honor to be at the head is cause of Justice. The path of better things is opening up, and the day of retribution for treachery and in famy draws close.” Early in the afternoon crowds began to gather about the big monument to Ben ito Juarez, for the hour of Carranza's arrival was uncertain. It was consid erably after nightfall when he arrived, hut the delay served only to augment the crowds. There were peon women in the inevi tably black, usually with children tag ging at their heels or with babies In their arms: middle class women, wives and daughters of shopkeepers, and petty officials in the pinkest of pinks, the gieenest of greens and the most vivid reds to lie had. They were hatless, for the most part, hut if no Jeweled ornament was nestled In their black hair, there at least was a paper carnation. In automo biles and carriages were there women folk of the wealthy, with diamond be decked fingers, and gowns and hats that hinted of Paris. Is The men wore less gaudy colors, but character was lent to the scene by the presence of Indians and peons, squatting here and there in the fringe of the crowd, wrapped to their nos»*s in gaudy blankets, gazing moodily from under the great 4. brims of their ornate and ponderous eom ’ fcreros. As the day wore on and the delay be eame tedious many left the city and took (Continued! on Page Two) CHURCHILLDECLARES BRITISH NAVY LEADS Promises Unique Exhibition by Bringing Airships Over Parliament Building OIL WILL BE USED AS FUEL FOR WARSHIPS Government Maintains the Greatest Secrecy Concerning Location of Oil Reserves as Well as Sources of Supply London, March 29.—William Ewart Gladstone was the last British statesman , who could make popular reading with a speech expounding the annual budget of government appropriations. Winston Spencer Churchill has done the same thing for the naval estimates. The young first lord of the admiralty com pelled the House of Commons to listen for two and a half hours while he gave ft review of the latest achievements in naval science so interestingly that even the “little navy” men kept their seats to the end. Battle between ironclads, the first lord described as “more like a battle between two egg shells striking each other with hammers’’ than two men In armor strik ing at each other with heavy swords. “The offensive power of modern battle-; ships is out of proportion to their defen sive power. Never was the disproportion so marked. In the light of that illustra tion the importance of good gunnery : must come home to us—the importance of' hitting first and hitting hard and keep ing on hitting, and the necessity of spending money In arriving at the high est possible efficiency.’* Promises Unique Exhibition Mr. Churchill believes the British navy leads the world in flying. He promised his fellow members a unique exhibition later in the season by bringing a fleet of airships over the Parliament buildings "it the House will take it kindly,” he re marked, “in order to remove the doubis which lurk in some breasts as to the existence of air craft in possession either of the naval or military services.” The admiralty now possesses 15 air ships, 10 of which are large vessels of more than 46 miles an hour speed, with to seaplanes and 41 ordinary aeroplanes. Air. Churchill declared his belief in the future of the aeroplane, but admitted that the airship had advantages in greater radius or action, greater carry ing wicity And efficiency at night worji. There are 20 officers and 120 pilots who have received certificates of proficiency from the Aero club. Attached to the fly ing service altogether are 125 officers and 500 men, and Air. Churchill predicted the number would reach LS0 officers and H00 or 1500 men before the end of the year. When he came to the admiralty two and a half years ago there were nine ma chines. Five stations have been equipped along the coast for housing machines and with quarters for officers and men, and two more are under construction. Special sea plane vessels are being built to accompany the fleets and carry ma chines. “Of course, the heavy sea planes which I .are developing now,” the first lord said. I “will carry formidable explosives which could be dropped on transports. They carry wireless telegraphy which enables them to signal a tl2 miles effectually, and they have been quite recently able to re ceive a message while in the air.” Oil for Fuel for Warships On the vital topic of the British navy’s steps to introduce oil as fuel for war- j ships the first lord’s explanations were not worthy, principally for what he re- | fused <o say. The government maintains ; (Continued on Face Two) CAPT. SIMS LAUDS MEN AND OFFICERS j Fleet Observer Comments on Splendid Work Done at Culebra Washington.

Sims, made public today. Captain films, who was detailed as fleet observer, said: "An examination of the Installations made on shore, the astonishing amount of work required to create the defenses In rocky soil (with, Incidentally, Inef ficient tools for such work), makes It ap parent that such results could have been accomplished only by harmonious com bination of thorough planning and ad mirable administration, actuated by the driving force of an enthusiastic, devotion to duty extending throughout the entire command. “It Is a most gratifying example of the great military value of a high degree , of esprit de corps and cheerful devotion to duty in overcoming discouraging ob stacles an ddlffloultles.” VIOLENT EATHQUAKE IS RECORDED IN LARGE CITIES 8t, Louis, March 2»—A violent earth '} quake lasting one hour and 24 minutes Jpe was recorded at the seismograph ol M jpGt, Louis -university lonlght.

March 29.—(Special.)—A tlanti is facing the prospect of voting- on thro< bond issues aggregating $3,000,000 or there aboute. The plaza project is one of the scheme! on foot, involving the construction o, a plaza above the tracks of the West ern and Atlantic and other railroads, us ing the Union passenger depot, througl four city blocks, at a cost of somethminf like $1,000,000. This is an old projec that has been long discussed and on« that everybody in Atlanta wants to se< carried out in order to beautify the cen ter of the city and furnish additional business space. It would require a special act of tin legislature of course to put it through since nothing could be built over tin state's railroad property without its con sent. It is practically certain, however with the proper guarantee, that leg is lative consent could be obtained. Woodward Favors Pl^za Project The plaza project is about the onl; one of those now under discussion tha Mayor Woodward favors, and for tha reason he is insisting that all of tin bond projects now proposed shall b< voted on separately, although they maj be all voted upon in the same election The public school authorities want n< lees than $1,000,000 worth of bonds fo the purpose of building new schoolbouses Atlanta admittedly needs many nev school buildings to take care of the in creased school attendance which seem: to be growing more rapidly than cit? income. Mayor Woodward takes the view tha the city can aJford to appropriate enougl money from year to year to build on* or two new schoolhouses and in this wa: keep pace with the city’s needs. However this has not been done and every' thru the school authorities have tried to ge money in this way they have struck t snag. Consequently they are tired o this process and have determined to g* before the poeple and ask for a schoo bond issue to meet preesnt and futun needs. $750,000 for Hospital The third plan Is. a campaign for i greater city hospital" for which $750,000 1: wanted. The Grady hospital board an the physicians of Atlanta are anxlou; at least to double the present capaclt and service ability of Grady and It ha been estimated It will take three-quar ters of a million dollars to do It. Mayor Woodward Is also opposed t this bond Issue'. He thinks the presen city hospital Is big enough for Atlanta’; needs. But he stands for the plan scheme and for that reason he wunti all of the proposed bond issues sepur ated so that the people may adopt wha they want and turn the others down. The bond election date has been ee for May 6, but little more than on month off. and In the meantime sotm pretty strong publicity campaigns wll be In progress. Bo far as the dally pa pers of the city are eonoerned, they an In favor of all of these projects and wll do all they can to see every one of then go through.

March 29.—Sight has been given to the left eye of David Kane, 9 ninnths-old child of Mr. and Mrs. Her man Kane, of Gettysburg. Pa., through the grafting of the cornea of a pig's eye to the child’s eye ball, according to physi cians at a hospital here. Certain tests, they declare, have brought out this fact without a doubt. When the bandage was removed from the eye it was declared the child fol lowed the course of a lighted candle which was moved in front of him. Another test that briugR out the fact more clearly is that the »-hlM now w!rfc?r his eyelid If a linger or a small object is moved dose to the eye. The movement of the eyelid t is the natural one. The disease from which the child has been a sufferer since he was three weeas old Is known as staphyloma of the cor nea. Both eyes became affected. Sight was partially restored to the right eye after treatment, but the left seemed to be ' in a hopeless condition and it was only as a last resort that the operation was decided on. The operation was performed a week ago Monday and the cornea of the pig’s eye was used because It is said It more closely resembles the human cornea than that of any other animal. Child and pig wTere placed under nil anesthetic and the outer covering of the i i animal's eye was removed. It was quickly ' placed on the eyeball of the child. The child’s eye today is said td he per fectly clear and free from inflammation. FEDERAL RESERVE CENTERS WILL BE CHOSEN THIS WEEK Washington, March 29.—President Wil son.

ORATORICAL STRIFE OVER TOLL REPEAL IS RENEWED TODAY General Debate on Sims Bill in House—Senate Dis cusses Side Issues OPPOSITION READY FOR FINAL STRUGGLE Lewi* Will Discuss His Hill Giving the President Right to Suspend Tolls Whenever to Public Interest. Wilson Awaits Results Washington, March 29.—No legislative issue of recent years has excited Con gress as has the controversy over repeal | of the toll exemption clause of the Pan ama canal act. Last week’s events, whtch put on record a breach In the solidarity of the democratic party, have caused no end of conflicting political predictions to Increase the tensity of Interest in the subject. The situation Is one fraught with many complications. Oratorical strife over the repeal will ha renewed tomorrow. The House will re sume general debate on the Sims bill, leading up to a Anal vote In that branch probably late Tuesday night or W ednes day. In the Senate discussion will re volve around one of the many side is sues that have arisen. Senator James^ Hamilton T>cw1h proposing to discuss a resolution and bill he has Introduced to follow repeal as a sort of balm to the wounds of his party members, who thus far have opposed the President. Lewis’ Measure Senator Lewis’ measure would give the President authority to suspend tolls whenever he should deem It in the public interest so to do. The Illinois senator will cite a long series of precedents on which he bases the right of Congress to extend such authority to the chief execu tive. As against the proposal of Senator Lewis, the minority leader, Senator Gal linger. will urge a resolution ho Intro duced last week which would express It as the sense of Americans that Congress has the right to do as it pleases with respect to American shipping through the Panama canal. In the House, opposing leaders are set ting the stage for the final struggle, all conceding that scenes attending the clos ing hours of the debate and the final roll call will rival In sensational enthusiasm any legislative climax in recent y.ars. Speaker Champ Clark, wtiose vigorous statement against the rule last week drew the curtain on the party breach, has prepared an epilogue, and the House gal leries cannot accommodate the thousands who will scramble for the seats to hear him deliver It. The speaker has maintained silence since his defeat on tin* cloture rule, when only 65 democratic members of the House followed their recognised leaders, while some 200 stood by the administration, but lie will break silence Tuesday, closing the debate on behalf of opponents of toll ex emption repeal. The speech has been guarded with the utmost care, fearful lest some hint of wlmt the speuker will sny might find Its way Into the hands of the opposing forces. close friends of the speaker assert there will be no bitterness expressed, no bark ing bark to political Imbroglios, and no reflection cast on the opinions of others. They predict he proposes to discuss the merits of the Issyje. On the other hand, some democrats hint that the speaker may surprise his friends and arouse his adversaries. Wilson Awaits Results As to the party strife that has been pre cipitated, President Wilson baa made no comment, and so far as known con templates making none. He made his pleas and awaits results. The President s • lose advisers Insist, however, that lie bears no personal or political HI will to ward the leaders of the party who have opposed hi in In this crisis; that he en tertains no thought of holding a political grudge and thHt any Idea, such as has been Intimated from many sources. Pint he would attempt to hav/* party leaders who oppose him punished politically Is farthest from his thoughts. While rum ors of party warfare are widely circu lated, the President. It Is declared, Is confidant. Congress will repeal the tolls Issue, and proposes that ‘ finis” shall he written to the controversy, when that Is done, regardless of the circumstances that attended it Breakers are declared ahead for the repeal, however, despite the situation in the House where It generally is conceded the fight already has been fought and won. The only uncertainty, however, In the minds of administration support ers as to the outcome Is the size of the majority. Estimates of the ma jority on the repeal vary from .15 to 7.'. But the Senate Is yet to he reckoned with. There no rule t'» limit debate, can be ordered, and lc mn'V be weeks before the question ‘s disposed of. Senator O’Gorman, who will lend the opposition has said sen ators who propose for the repeal have told him they did not expect a voto for six weeks. Senator Owen and other democratic champions of the President’s cause declare delay will serve no useful purpose and they hope to have the committee on interoceanlc canals, of which Senator O’Gorman is chairman, take up the Sims bill vs soon as It comes from the House. The committee Is closely divided on the Issue. At present unless some members of the committee should an nounce a change of view, it appears that opponents of the repeal might have a majority of one In the com njittee.
