Reports from Mexico City, brought, by
the refugees, describe President Huerta
as enjoying daily rides and his frequent
appearance at the cafes and restaurants
accompanied by only one or two a dies
or intimate friends. Tn the face of this
apparent nonchalance. however, the
usual rumors of Huerta a flight are cir- ,
culater here daily. They are not taken
seriously by most of those acquainted
with Huerta’s views.

Compulsory vaccination of the inhabi

tors, who canvassed the city and ad- o

A very heavy rainstorm, flooding
trences and blowing torrents into the 0
faces of the fedcrals. contributed much a
to their defeat at Tampico, according to E
Americans who have come here from v
that port. After the first day's fighting ^
the federals appeared to be weakening,
but still resisted. Overnight they made p
all preparations for a retreat. Trains n
stood in readiness with steam up. i
Driven From Trenches
At 8 o’clock the next morning a great ^
rainstorm from the eastward drove the I
federals from the trenches. The const!- e
tutionalists took advantage of this and v
poured a terrific fire into them, forcing
them back from the outposts into the r
town. Immediately the federals began
entraining.
The gunboat Vera Cruz, struck bv a r
constitutionalist shell, was run up the M
river and beached. Soldiers and crew
remained aboard waiting for the trains, H
which soon passed the point, filled to d
their utmost capacity with fleeing fed- f
erals. The other gunboats moved down ^
the river, firing a few shells as they t
went.

little looting. Within two hours the wa- c

restored: police guarded the town and
saloons were closed. Several persons •
engaged in looting were shot.
During flie early part of the action t
federals raided tlie Southern hotel, tak- v

German consul, R. Bverbusch, aceom- N
panied by the American vice consul, 1
Thomas H. Bevan, proceeded through *

DEBATE®i K
Majority Leader Kern Hope
ful Vote May Be Taken
by May 25
Washington, May 16.—Although many
senators are yet to speak on the Panama
canal exemption repeal bill. Senator
Korn, majority leader, wan hopeful to
night that debate would close in another
week and that a vote might be taken
May 20. Before the bill is voted on many
amendments will have to be disposed of.
Senators who have led the repeal fight
are expected to concentrate their efforts
on an amendment offered by Senator Sim
mons and adopted by the interoceanic
canals committee, which declares the
United States in repealing the exemption
clause waives no rights over the canal.
Senator Walsh today cloaed debate for
the week with a speech against repeal.
The senator \sas secretary of the subcom
mittee at the Baltimore convention which
framed the democratic platform. . He re
pudiated as unfounded any suggestion that
the tolla plank was inserted surreptitious
ly, and said .Secretary of State Bryan,
a co-worker on the platform, had full
knowledge of this plank. He said It was
significant that Attorney General Mc
Reynoids had expressed no opinion re
garding the question of tolls.
After relating how the tolls plank was
considered by a si/bcommlttee headed bjf
W. J. Bryan and then by another sub
committee over the first subcommittee,
and finally the entire platform committee,
Senator Walsh related two Incidents, in
dicating that the plank in question had
the particular attention of the committee.
These were an amendment suggested bjr
Mr. Bryan adding the railroad-owned
ship clause and another substituting the
words "exemption from tolls" for "free
tolls."
He declared toils exemption was not a
subsidy in the offensive sense.
"While 1* remain convinced that no
treaty restrains our action." said he. **1
am under no temptation to escape from
the trammels of the platform under the
puerile suggestion that the plank in Ques
tion is contradicted by another that de
clares against subsidies, requiring a choice
as between the two.”

BILL FOR CONTROL OF

Measure Strikes Boldly al
“Cupidity and Incompe

Declares Adamson
Washington. May 16.- The Ray hum hi I
for federal control of railroad stock an:
bond issues, one of the trio of antitrus
measures that constitute the legislate
programme for the remainder of the ses
srion of Congress, was reported favorably
to the House today by the interstate com
merce committee. The report, preparec
by Chairman Adamson, analyzed the pur
poses of the hill, told of the reforms 1
would accomplish, declared the persona
punishment provided was the only waj
to deal with malefactors and struck bold
ly at what the report called "the cupldl

torates or avarice or exploitation of spec
ulators who use the power of their post
tions to wreck the carriers and mak<
large gains.’’
"The man who unblushingly will taki
advantage of the power afforded by hi
position In the financial world," said th<
report, “to wreck the facilities and abllit:
of a carrier to discharge its public du
ties, besides buncoing innocent investor
out of hundreds of millions of dollar:
and embarrassing other innocent invest
ors by unloading on them worthless stock:
and bonds, Is worthy of the most seven

In response Governor Ammons tele

COUNSEL PLEADS
FOR MORE TIME
Only Petition From President Wilson
Now ('an Save Convicted Men
From Serving Sentences.
History of Case
FhicagO. May Id.—The 24 labor l"*,d*rs
sentenced In ihe "dynamiting cases," who
are at liberty on bond*, have but three
weeks more of liberty. The United Stater,
circuit court of appeals today ordered
them to surrender June ii to the warden
of the federal prison at Leavenworth,
Ivan., or be taken to the penitentiary
from Chicago on that day.
Elijah Zollne. counsel for the defense,
pleaded for time before the remanding or
der went into effect
"These men are scattered all over the
country." he said. "It will be a hardship
for them to be separated from their tam
llles Immediately. They aro all under
heavy bond and to enable them to
straighten affairs before they go to the
penitentiary la why I ask for time.” ?
Only a petition from President Wilson'
can save the convicted men from serving
their sentences. Mr. Zollne said he had
presented the President with a petition
carrying nearly 600,04*) signatures.
Additional Causes
The court also took under advisement
cases of Olaf Tvcitmoe of San Francisco,
Richard H. Houlihan of Chicago and Wil
liam Bernhardt of Cincinnati. These three
were granted now trials and arguments
Nverr made today on the government's pe
tition for a rehearing of their cases and
tile sustainment of the lower court s con
viction. Former United Slates District
Attorney Charles Miller of Indianapolis
argued the government's case before
Judges Seaman, Baker and Mack. Coun
sel for ih« defendants were hopeful that
the order granting a new trial to Txcb
moe, Houlihan and Bernlmrdt would re
main In effect. v
History of the dynamite cases date*
back to August Id, is**, when the Interna
tional Association of Bridge ami Suue
tural Iron Workers declared a strike
against t he American Bridge company -
Bridges and buildings erected by "open
shop'' concerns were dynamited! There
were nearly inn inslancc* of such violence
until 1911, when the McNamara brothers
ami Ur.Lb- MeMauigal were arrested.
In 1912. nil men were found guilty at
the federal court in Indlanaoolts of uon
splracy to transport explosives Illegally.

of Detroit appealed and were granted a
will of superseadeas January 3. 1913, and
ordered released on bonds of $10,041U for
tear of sentence Imposed.
In 191.1 two were paroled and all save
six of the remaining 30 were released, as
they furnished bond. On January « last
the United States circuit court of ap
peals granted n now trial to six of the
■10 and denied a new trlul to 2(. On
March 9 the United States supreme court
refused to review the conviction of the
24 nod tho last hope of being saved from
the pen by the law was shattered.
The order will affect only 19 of the 24
men, five of them having returned vol
untarily lo the pnnltentlary after the
United States circuit court of appeals de
nied them a new trial. They are Murray
