SEVEN AMERICANS ARE SHOT Citizens of Douglas, Ariz., Hit by Bul lets While Fight Rages Across Border—Diaz Troops Suffer Heavy Loss in Killed and Wounded. Douglas, Ariz. —Victory crowns the 1,000 lnsurrectos defending Agua Prieta, the Mexican town just across the border from this place after an all-day fight, the most sanguinary con flict of the Mexican revolution. The desperate e fort of the 1,600 Mexican national troops under Lieu tenant Colonel Diaz to retake the city has failed and the federals have suf fered heavy losses In killed and wounded. So far as Douglas was concerned President Taft’s demand that hostilities be conducted in a zone insuring safety to the Ameri cans was utterly disregarded. Throughout the battle bullets rained incessantly in the streets and riddled the houses of this little Arizona town The only reliable data of casualties that can be obtained on the American side of the line were seven American men and women have been wounded, most of them while going about their business many blocks north of the supposed border line. The wounded in Douglas are being cared for at Red Cross hospitals, established for Mexican wounded. A protest has been wired to Presi dent Taft by Mayor McGuire as fol lows: “Six persons have been shot In Douglas during battle betw’een Mexican federals and lnsurrectos Battle still raging. Worst yet to come. Bullets falling all over city. Cannot something be done for our population? Signed, S. F. McGuire, mayor of Douglas.” Simultaneously with this protest. Lieut. Col. William A. Shunk, com manding the United States troops here, wired a list of known to be w-ounded in this city. Public senti ment is rapidly reaching the danger point, and one newspaper has open ly called for Intervention In Mexico. U r om four o’clock In the afternoon until late in the night ft was not safe on any street in Douglas for people, mauser bullets striking residences, business blocks, smelters, railroad shops and cars and cutting wires and ricoehetting from telegraph and tele phone poles. And military authorities here say the worst Is yet to come. In stead of fighting the battle in the des ert as they proposed the rebels in trenched In and around Agua Prieta in such fashion as to make hopeless Douglas Immune from bullets, and the federal army instead of attacking from the east or west as has been promised advanced from the soutti west, which placed Douglas much In the same situation as the background of a target. American troops did < verything pos sible to protect the unfortunate Doug las residents. Spectators were driven back from the boundary line a dis tance of six blocks, but notwithstand ing all their efforts several persons were wounded. The Inhabitants of Douglas, despite the obvious danger, were not to be denied the spectacle of battle. They crowded the roofs in vast throngs and darkened every point of vantage throughout the long hurs of conflict. That more were not wounded Is surprising, bat that any were wound ed at all leaves Washington with a grave problem to face. So far as can be determined when dusk stopped the fighting the rebel loss was trifling, consisting of several score wounded and about 20 dead, while the federal losses are estimated at more than 200. In all particulars the battle was a thrilling and dramatic novelty in this war of outposts. It began with the first rays of dawn and continued at in tervals throughout the day, marked by ferocious and determined battling on both sides and by a quality of valor not expected or hitherto displayed In this desultory Internal war. The po sitions of the rebels throughout was that of the defensive. Protected by intrenchraento they exacted a bitter price from the federal forces instead of an Ineffective clash, usually cli maxed by hurried retreat. The fight was a standup battle on the side of the federals. suggestive of the old shoulder to shoulder days of the American rebellion. In an open stretch of desert, little like a theater, by the blazing days of an April sun, the two forces exchanged a perpetual fusillade, hour after hour, that marked up a conflict of exceptional ferocity and determination. Throughout the night the Mexican troops had been encamred at Sulphur Springs, a wa ter hole five miles south of Agua Prieta. Under command of Lieut. Col. Porfirio Diaz, cousin of the presi dent himself, the troops had vowed to revenge the descent of "Red” Lopez and his command on Agua Prieta. Two Killed in Auto Mishap. Cleveland, O. —W. S.

Places Management in Hands of Son- Young Man Says His Mother Has Been Grossly Misrepresented. New York. —Mrs. Hetty Green and her son, Col. E. H. R. Green, have de cided to consolidate her interests in a private bank with a chain of branches reaching from coast to '.oast. "In New York,” said Colonel Green, “our firm will be named E. H. R. Green & Cos. Branches will be opened in Boston. Chicago, Dallas and San Fran cisco. We have decided that our in terests can best be served from a pri vate bank here In New York. Since the laws of the various states do not give us the right to hold real estate in the name of a corporation or trust company common to all, we have had to organize like other private bankers of this city whose interests extend elsewhere.” Colonel Green pictures his mother as grossly misrepresented in the past. Al though she conducts her business on c> r* and conservative lines, he says ££— - £ jf. ja. c/issv k J she has made it an invariable rule to reinvest her profits in the territory from which they were drawn, for the upbuilding of that territory. "Her argument has been," he ex plains, “that every community is en titled to the benefit of Its own pros perity. "Since my motLer began her busi ness career she has never ;sked more than 6 per cent, for her money. The bulk of her loans have been made at considerably lower rates. Because of this attitude and her widly known liberality to her customers In panic times my mother has been able to skin? the cream of the borrowers. "Another point that adds to my pi iue .n her business name is her in tense loyalty to her country. She wmuld not invest in r. foreign enter prise if it guaranteed a certain profit of 500 per cent, in thirty days. “Modern financiers look upon her as behind the times and some have vol unteered to bring me up to date; but if I am one-half so fortunate in my opinions and judgments as she has been I shall be doing better than any financier I have met.” WOULD IMPEACH GOV.
