To prevent such disorder, and bring such persons to punishment, I have bad four or five conferences with the Chief of Police, and have instructed him to have every ! available policeman at the point at which this woman was expected to ap? pear, to keen the streets clear, and promptly to arrest any person who,of? fered any indignity or annoyance to any lady. "At a conference with the Chief of Police Saturday morning,. I was led to believe that there would be no repe? tition of these disorders, and was sur? prised to hear of the occurrences Sat? urday evening, j "1 am now satisfied that in the in- j tererr of peace and order this adver- j tislng agent will be withdrawn from the streets, and thai these disturb? ances will cense."

So confident are the United States orlicera that the directing head of tin- Mexican revolution is still here that they had a warrant issued this afternoon for ills arrest. The warrant was issued by United States Commissioner George B. Oliver. The issue of the warrant came as a result of the capture of papers on the person of Martin Casillas. a revolution? ary leader, as he was returning tot Mexico on Sunday from a trip to El j Paso. The papers were In the handwriting of Madero, and were signed by him. All were dated February 12, at El Paso.

In the opinion of State Department of ] ttcials the revolutionary movement in Mexico lias degenerated into a mere guerrilla warfare, the so-called Insur? rectos being hopelessly divided, with! teach would-be leader acting on hla j own initiative and without any com? manding figure around whom they may raly. The main concern of the department at present is that some of these ir? responsible elements may fall into ways of mischief and ho led into .in in? fringement of the rights of American citizens, which Is one explanation of the gathering of a considerable num? ber of United. States troops along tin Western end <--f thp boundary line be? tween California and Arizona on one side and Mexico nn the other. FlnVR Double Function. These troops have a double func? tion to perform. In the first place, if the disorderly elements south of the line attempt to work any harm to such American interests as are involved in the construction of tho dike which ir. to govern the disposition of th* waters of the Colorado Hiver. the American troops may be sent across to guard if. This, of course, would ho done with the consent of the Mexi? can government. The second function of the troops Is to execute the neu? trality law? probably in a manner that has not yet occurred to the Insurrectos Tills involves not. only the prevention of the Organization oh American soil of iiostile expeditions against Mexico, but also the "internemont" of any of the insurrectos who are driven across the lino by the Mexican government troops nnd seek to return to Mexico to renew their campaign against the government. While the. neutrality .laws do not specifically mention this "tntornemenl" as obligatory upon tha United Slates, it is said at the State Department that such an obligation dors exist under tho International rules of war. In brief these rules require that a defeated army or part of an army seeking re? fuge within the territory of a neutral power must he disarmed and detained until the close of hostilities. Regarding the quest Ion which bus been raised as to the right of sympa? thizers with the Insurrectos to send food across the line, it Is said at tho State Department that so long :is this is done only i:i the case of Individuals, there can be no pbjccllon to tho prac? tice.

M 'CALL BILL MAY BE PASSED TO-DAY - i j Republican Party Split Wide! Open on Measure, Neither Reg- j ulars nor Insurgents Work- j ing in Harmony?Only Nineteen Democrats Vote in Opposition to It. Washington, D. C February 13.?The McCall bill, carrying into effect the Canadian reciprocity agreement rcachod the floor of the House to-day and probably will be passed by that body before adjournment to-morrow night. Rven the opponents of the measure admitted to-day that there was no hope cf stopping it in l\U House. A test vote came to-day soon aftex the House was called to order by Speaker Cannon. Mr. MeCall moved the immediate eonsideration of his bill This was objected to ostensibly on the ground that it was District of Columbia day on th? calendar and that Important matters of legislation affecting tho Dis? trict were pending. When the voting began, however, it soon became apparent that, with com? paratively few exceptions, the lines were being tightly drawn between those favoring and those opposing the trade agreement. As finally corrected, the vote to take up the hill was 197 to 120. The bill will be passed. It is expected, by even a larger majority. To-day 101 Republicans voted against Immediate consideration. This mini ber will show a decided diminution on the final call. Sixty-three Republicans voted for immediate consideration. Few Democrat* Oppose It. The Democratic vote was divided ? 13 1 In favor of immediate considera? tion and nineteen against. Democratic leaders say there will bo but six pi (even votes against the passage of the bill from their side. No time for a vote was set to-day. but to-morew Mr. MeCall will endeavor to secure ah agreement to end general lebate at f> o'clock and then to begin *.he reading of the bill for amendment, '.be House to remain in session until the measure Is passed. The test vote taken to-day nnd the general debate that followed clearly demonstrated the serious split fhat ex? ists among the Republicans of the House on reciprocity, it now appears thnt a majority of the Republicans will vote against the measure, although the President is likely to get more sup? port from that side of the chamber than he first anticipated. T.Ike- the Regulars, the Insurgent ranks also are torn wide open, and, like the Regulars again, a majority of them will vote against the measure. Some of the Republicans who spoke to-day declared they saw in the reci? procity agreement the beginning of the end of protection. The Democrats ap? plauded this vociferously. The Republican spilt is accentuated hy the fact thnt one member of that party. Mr. MeCall, of Massachusetts; i.t directing the debate in favor of the .measure, and another Republican. Mr Dalr.ell. of Pennsylvania, Is directing the fight against it. Representative Hill, of Connecticut, opened the dehnte In favor of the bill, and was the only Republican to ndvo' rate It to-day. He was seconded by Representatives Harrison, of New York, and A. Mitchell Palmer, of Pennsylva? nia. Democrats. Represent a five* Gain es, of West Virginia: Martin, of South Dakota, and Kendall, of Iowa, nil Republicans, spoke against reciproc? ity; Some Reciprocity I'.xniu plea. Mr. Hill declared that under reciproc? ity, trade between this country and Hawaii and Cuba flourished: that under free trade with Porto Rico, our trade with that Island Increased nearly fif? teen-fold: that under reciprocal rela? tions with th? Philippine Islands, mu? tual trade has grown TO per cent. In less than a year. In all of these eas^s the proposition to enter upon such trade relations was met with prophecies of dire disaster to some existing indua try in this country, and in every case the prophecy failed of fulfilment, the new policy resulting in mutual advan? tage. Mr. Galncs complained that the reel proeity measure'; had been "railroaded ' through with "Indecent haste." Mr. Harrison, of New York, favoring the measure, said the Democrats wer?? anxious to bare reciprocity. Tt would show the; American farmer In a very little while, he asserted, that protec? tion had been of no benefit to him. The farmer, he said, had fe.r years been held In line for Republicanism through false pretenses. "And when he finds that protection was a humbug in his ease." added Mr. Harrison, "he will help us gel hetter tariff schedules ns to other things." Mr, Palmer, also favoring the bill, characterized it as n belated acknowl? edgment of the disappointment ihe country fell over the Payne-A-ldrich law. bows to~pTjblic will Sentiment In Semite on Reciprocity llnderaoex Cbnnse.

He will sail from New Orleans Wed? nesday for Puerto Rarriop. Guatemala, where he will he met by the American gunboat Tacorha and taken to Puerto Cortoz; j Details of the instructions given to Mr. Dawson by the ^tate Department lore withheld for the present, but it is known that his purpose is to reconcile the conflicting factions in Honduras upon the basis of a plan to allow the] people of the republic an opportunity1 to express their preferences absolutely without duress in the selection of .a President and Congress. As a condi? tion precedent, it probably will be nec- 1 , ess?ry for the factions to agree upon j the assumption of executive power by a third party, neither Davllla nor Ro? nllla. who shall hold office until such ' lime r.s a general election enn be held j and the successful candidate for the I presidency inaugurated. Jt Is believed j by the officials here that this can be I done without any armed Intervention j j on the part of the United Stales. With| ! that exception, the course to bo fol j lowed would ho like that adopted in the [ case of Cuba, where, through the good I offices of the United States, the people were insured a fair and free election.
