Paris, virulently criticized the policy of the United States toward
Mexico. As he sat in the forward saloon of the French liner.

flying in Vera Cruz and shook his fist in rage.
He insisted that he is in a position to produce proofs that there
exist a "secret platform" of the progressive party in the United
States of which Colonel Roosevelt was cognizant, in which he con
curred, looking to the disruption of Mexico and acqquisition ulti
mately by the United States of all the territory between the Rio
Grande and Panama.
El Paso, Tex., July 10.—The speedy return of Villa's army
southward from Chihuahua City to resume the campaign against
Mexico City is predicted, following the report of advices from Tor
reon that the internal peace conference is ended. With Guadalajara
in the constitutionalist hands and San Luis Potesi besieged by the
revolutionists, there only remain two or three points of defense for
the federals between the national capital and the southern edge of
the territory controlled by the revolutionists,
On the east General Gonzales, with 20,000 men, holds the do
main from the border to San Luis Potesi, twenty-four hours by rail
from Mexico City,
In the center, Villa's division occupies the country from Juarez
to Agus CaMentes, eighteen hours from the capital, City of Mexico.
To the west, General Obregon stretched his lines to Guadala
jara, within six hours' ride by rail to the central goal. Once San
Luis Potesi is captured, the three military divisons of the rebel forc
es will converge On Mexico City. When this combination is effected
60,000 men will be available for
timate goal.
Douglas, Ariz., July 10.—General
Obregon, commander of the constitu
tionalist forces, who Wednesday cap
tured the important city of Guadala

battle, is prepared to reorganize his
forces with a view to marching on Ira
pupo, the junction of the Mexican Cen
tral railroad connecting Mexico City
with1northern and western Mexico.

federal army of 12,000 men defending
Guadalajara. The battle extended
over a zonG of sixty-five miles.

The sheriff was informed the women
were armed and might resist arrest.
J«?y fO—Sleat prices will rise above the record figures of
recent years despite the huge grain crop, according to packing housa
representatives who yesterday asserted that the present scarcity of cat*
tie and the effect of dry weather on grazing lands would more than
offset the enormous grain yield.
A price of 16 cents to the butcher was predicted as an early pos
sibility and it was pointed out by one of the packing house men that
cattle are now higher than for sometime. Scarcity of grass-fed cat-'
tie was referred to as a factor in the predicted advance.
The dry summer in the west last year, one of the representative*
of the packers said, was the chief cause of the scanty supply on the
hoof and another declared that the demand for meat exceeded the sup
ply and naturally caused prices to advance. All agreed that meat price®
showed signs of rising,

St. Louis. Mo., July 10.—The two
masked bandits who held up the west
bound "Katy Flyer" on the Missouri.
Kansas & Texas railroad near Mat
son. Mo., sixty miles west of St. Louis
last night, captured a track walker
who surprised them as they were rob
bing the train and took him away
with them to prevent his spying on
their departure.
This was learned from members of
the train crew. The story of the rob
bery was told by A. L. Mudd, conduc
tor of the train, and Jos. Snyder, en
gineer. The train left St. Louis at
8:20 last night and stopped at Mat
son, Mo., on the north bank of the
Missouri river at 10:15 o'clock.
There the two bandits are supposed
to have boarded the train. After the
train had gone a short distance, the
bandits crawled over the top of the
tender and covered the engineer and
fireman with revolvers. The train
Philadelphia, July 10.—Michiel J.
Ryan, president of the United Irish
league of America, gave out a state
ment concerning the Irish National
Volunteer movement and its efforts in
favor of home rule. Mr. Ryan's state
ment follows:
"In view of the organization under
Sir Edward Carson of the so-called
Ulster volunteers, a counter move
ment has been started. There has
been organized a very considerable
body of friends of home rule. They
are known as the Irish Volunteers, and
their purpose is to aid the government
in executing the law. This has had a
most striking effect on the political
situation and has strengthened the
hands of Mr. Redmond, who desires
that the movement shall move for
ward with the utmost rapidity.
"For a time there was danger that
the organization would pass into the
hands of a small but clamorous body
of Irishmen who have consistently op
posed Mr. Redmond and who for years
have attacked the parliamentary par
ty and proved an obstacle to home
rule. That danger has now passed and
the control of the Irish Volunteer
movement by practically unanimous
consent is vested in the hands of the
Irish leader who has brought the
movement to success.
"The people of America who sympa
thize with the Irish in their struggle
can be assured that any aid they give,
the Irish National Volunteer move
ment. will not go amiss, but they
should not be misled by any appeals
that do not come from the friends of
Mr. Redmond."

Geneva, 111., July 10.—The jury in
the case of Anthony Petras, accused
of the murder of Theresa Hollander
last winter, disagreed, and was dis
charged at 9:30 o'clock this morning
by Judge Irwin.
Miss Hollander was dragged into a
cemetery on the outskirts of Aurora
and clubbed to death on the night of
Feb. 16 last. Her body was discover
ed next morning, lying in the snow,
with her arms broken and her skull
fractured. Robbery was not the mo
tive as all her belongings were intact.
The state attempted to prove that a
knife, found near the body, belonged
to Petras. Miss Hollander and Petras
had been sweethearts up to a year be
fore the tragedy. It was brought out
at the trial that the girl's parents
caused a break between the two.
Shortly after Petras married Meta
Mathews. She sat with her husband
throughout the long trial and encour
aged him. The trial began June 23.
The jury which tried Petras told
Judge Irwin they could not agree, as
eleven jurors wanted to acquit the de
fendant but one declared he never
could be convinced that it was not

lonely graveyard and clubbed her to
The jury was out forty hours.
The one juror who held out is said
to be Homer Eddy, a farmer and the
oldest man on the jury. He has ten
children, two of them girls of the age
of the Hollander girl,

the belief of the people of this county
at large," said Attorney Harvey,

go back and uncouple the train be
tween the last express car and the
first passenger car. The engine and
express car were then run to a point
near Klondyke, on the river bank. The
bandits broke into the express car,

his face against the wall and then

Track Walker William Christopher
appeared and the bandits captured
him. The robbers then escaped with
valuable packages across the Missouri
river to the south.
The first news of the robbery was
given by the flagman of the "flyer."
Despite warnings of the robbers he
got off the rear passenger coach and
ran back to Matson where he notified
the telegraph operator that the train
had been held up. None of the passen
gers was molested the bandits con

Seward, Alaska, July 10.—AH the
volcanoes along the Alaska peninsula
west of Seward to the Aleutian is
lands are in action, according to a re
port brought by Captain McMullen of
the steamship Dirigo,
which arrived
from Dutch harbor,
Captain McMullen said that the Kat
mai, the great volcano on the mainland
across Shelikof strait from Kodiak is
land, is throwing out great volumes of
sulphur laden smoke. The sea, he
said, was discolored by sulphur dust
and pumice for a distance of 100 miles
either side of the volcano.
Mount Shishaldin and Mount Pavlof,
the most active volcanoes in
tian islands, were smoking
cuticle which saved his U£*t
when the
Dirigo passed them.
Captain McMullen reported that the
natives living along the Alaska penin
sula said the great clouds of volcanlo
dust hurled into the air last month
were caused by volcanic eruptions and
not by old deposits of volcanic ash
stirred up by the terrific wind storm

Washington, July 10.—General Villa
has voted against informal peace con
ferences between representatives of
the constitutionalists and the Huerta
goverment as proposed by the South
American mediators. His attitude was
revealed in a telegram sent to General
Carranza, copies of which have reach
ed here. This confirmation, together
with the knowledge that General Pab
lo Gonzales, chief of the division of
the east of the constitutionalist army,
is opposed to the conferences, has up
set the hopes of constitutionalists
here. Gen. Alvaro Obregon, com
manding the division of the northeast,
is the only one of the three chiefs
commanding the main columns of the
constitutionalist army who has not
been heard from, but inasmuch as his
forces are near Guadalajara and in
striking distance of Mexico City, it is
believed he will not agree to any par
leys at this time.
Rafael Zubaran and Luis Cabrera,
representatives of General Carranza,
declined last night to make any com
ment on the situation. From those
constitutionalists who would take, »lt
was learned that there is a miscon

generals of the things to be discussed
at the proposed conferences. Local

argument for the holding of the con
The telegram from Villa to Carran

ily at least, patched up their differ
ences, it was announced today by per
sons in communication with General

In support of the claim that Gener
al Obregon Is in entiTe sympathy with
General Carranza and does not approve
of General Villa's split with the first
chief, telegrams were produced today
by well-informed persons. One of
these from General Obregon to Gener
al Carranza dated July 2 said:
"Owing perhaps to telegraphic in
terruption on account of heavy rains.
I did not receive until today any tele
grani from you with the information
which you gave me about the conduct
of General Villa, the chief of the divi
sion of the noTth. I am waiting for
this information so as to make it
known to all the forces under my com
mand. I am fully confident that all
chiefs who are subordinate to me, will
know alwayg how to do their duty
without fear of danger and regardless
of the attitude of the other chiefs.
They will respect and compel respect
for the plan of Guadalupe and the
convention of Piedras Negras which
raised you to the capacity of first
chief of the constitutionalist army.

which the city has experienced the
hottest weather of the summer work
has gone forward without a hitch.
Members of the executive committee
of the campaign begged so hard to be
let off from their meeting this morning
that they might see the circus parade
that Campaign Manager J. P. Hardy
did finally asree to a postponement of
the regular session.
All of the team captains have now
been selected. Mrs. Maud E. Hollister,
commanding Division C, has selected
as captains: Mrs. R. M. Pollock, Mis*
Nellie Bishop and Mrs. J. J. Jordan.
The ladies' teams in the Fargo col
lege campaign had such good success
in competing with the men that Mrs.
Hollister is of the opinion that her
division will need but three teams to
keep pace with the men instead of
five, as is the case in Divisions A and
At a meeting of department heads
of the campaign at headquarters in
the Y. M. C. A. building this afternoon
the outlook for the campaign was dis
cussed in detail. Captains reported
their teams practically complete. There
are some places left, however. Late
applicants who telephone Campaign
Manager Hardy at headquarters im
mediately, may possibly receive places.
There was plenty of enthusiasm at this
afternoon's meeting. Everyone is
eager to get to the actual work of get
ting stock subscriptions.
When work actually begins Tuesday
morning. July 14, and funds begin
coming in, the progress of the worK

Washington, July 1.—President Wil
son will make no nomination for the
federal reserve board in place of Paul
Warburg 6f New York until the senate
takes definite action on his name. Wil
son expects thus to place the respon
sibility on the senate for leaving the
board incomplete. That is the presi
dent's position in his fight with the
senate over Warburg's nomination, as
expressed by officials in his confidence.
That there is no chance of Wilson
changing his mind was stated definite
ly. Warburg has finally decided that
he will not appear personally before
the banking committee to be cross ex
amined and the president is backing
him in that stand.
In answer to querries whether Wilson
is making efforts to get Warburg to
appear before the committee, officials
at the White House said that any such
attempt would be useless.
The nomination of Thomas D. Jones,
which the banking committe voted to
report adversely, is in a different posi
tion. The fight for his confirmation
may be conducted in a minority report.

Jordan cabled from London to Pres.

Dr. Jordan who is in Europe in con

The Big Procession.
Monday night's procession, when
privates and officers in the campaign
will march from campaign headquar
ters to the Armory-Auditorium, will be
a big one. It is planned to make the
procession almost wholly an automo
bile parade. Persons who wish to offer
their automobiles for use in the pro
cession are requested to telephone Man
ager Hardy at No. 100,0(10. A large
band will head the procession to the
Armory-Auditorium. The band has do
nated its services to the cause.
As a further evidence of the very
general enthusiasm that has permeated
in anticipation of this cam­
paign, it should be noticed that when
the city band organization was asked
to head the parade next Monday, they,
to a man, volunteered their services its
a part of their effort to put this thing
through. The parade, therefore, will
have not alone the enthusiasm of its
individual members, but will have that
enthusiasm set to music by our splen
did band.
Every citizen of Fargo who is inter
ested in the Armory-Auditorium is
urged to attend the meeting In tho
partially completed structure at 8
o'clock Monday night. It will be there
that tho spirit of the campaign will
crystalize. "Even If you have already
inspected the auditorium and had It
explained, come to Monday night's

there," said Mr. Hardy this morning
in speaking of the meeting. As speak

first stage of its fight to have sen
ate confirm the nominations of Thomas
D. Jones of Chicago and Paul M. War
burg of New York, as members of the

agreed to postpone indefinitely further
consideration of the nomination of Mr.
The Jones report will be submitted
by Acting Chairman Hitchcock .early
next week, and the debate over his

floor of the senate behind closed doors

No further action will be taken by
the committee on the Warburg ap
pointment unless the New York bank
er changes his mind and decides to
accept the committee's invitation to
appear before it and submit to ques
tioning. The next move, according to
members of the committee must bo

The committee's action on these two
