DOUGLAS, Ariz., Nov. 26.—The crack
of a pistol within a few feet of the
police station at Aguu Prleta, Just
across the line in Mexico, today threw
the entire town into excitement and
caused the turning out of the citizen
soldiers, recently called to Rervlce by
the Mexican government, and the line
riders on both sides of the border.
The excitement and fear of a rebel
Hurprise subsided when it was learned
that the shot had been fired by Ri
cardo Rothenhausler, a prominent
young Mexican, who was suddenly
seized with suicidal mania after hav
ing serenaded Senora Inez I*opez.
The suicide occurred in the building
owned by Senora Lopez, and the sol
diery immediately formed about It a
cordon through which none was per
mitted to pass for several hours.
The citizen soldiers came to Aqua
Prleta from Fronteran last night. They
are armed with weapons purchased in
this city. The hurried attempts to en
list a militia force is taken here as
evidence corroborating assertions of
revolutionary sympathizers that the
government has very few regular
troops in northern Sonora. '
Tho assembling of this citizen sol
diery also indtcates that the govern
ment is seeking to mobilize every
available force to trap Madero in the
vicinity of Coahulla or Monclova.
That the government is likewise
making every effort to prevent further
uprisings along the border is shown
by th« fact that seven men suspected
of having revolutionary sympathies
were arrested last night at Fronteras
General Thomas, commanding the
American troops in the southwest, re
ceived a message tonight that Gen,
Torres, the Mexican chieftain, could
not arrive tonight at Naco for the con
ference arranged between them. Gen.
Thomas therefore decided to remain
at Douglas until tomorrow.
Cattlemen who returned tonight from
buying cattle in Mexico said that Just
prior to the outbreak of the revolu
tion Madero purchased 2000 horses In
southern Chihuahua and brought them
north to his hacienda. These horses
afterward disappeared from his ranch,
and it is believed that they were taken
by Madero to the rendezvous of the
Mexican cowboys, who are said to
form the backbone of the revolutionary
Small Town Reported to Have
Fallen Into Insurgents' Hands
MEXICO CITY, Nov. 26.—The only
news to reach this city today indicat
ing activity on the part of the revolu
tionists was that of the ridding Ly a
band of twenty-flve or thirty half
starved men early today on Betonia
ranch, near Sacramento, thirty miles
north of Torreon. The ranch store Is
said to have been stripped of provi
sions, these apparently being the solo
quest of the maurauders. Nothing else
was molested.
A dispatch from Parral to El Heraldo
says everything Is quiet there. A
rumor. Impossible to confirm, related
that the small town of Cuevas, near
Parral, had fallen into the hands ot
the rebels. Yesterday, continues the
dispatch, workmen were sent to repair i
a portion of a railroad near Santa
Barbara, a few miles to the southwest,
which had been torn up, but the
trains were running as usual and had
not been molested.
General Navarro, with 600 troops, is
said to have left today, presumably for
the north. A force of 100 men was
left in Parral.
Telegraph facilities from the scene
of trouble are so far Improved that
press telegrams are now being trans
mitted with comparatively little delay.
Troops May Be Bound to Scene
• of Recent Engagement
DOUGLAS, Ariz., Nov. 26.—The Mex
ican soldiers sent eastward from the
Arizona border to loln the forces clos
ing in on Madero passed eight miles
south of Aqua Prleta. It Is said that
they are making forced marches of
thirty miles a day and will reach Casas
Grandes in five days.
It Is believed the trooos are bound
for Guerrero, where a fight occurred
between Mexican troops and the rebels.
Lieut. C<>l. Yepez, commanding the
government forces, was killed while
leading the Twelfth battalion, includ
ing troops which left Chihuahua No
vember 21 and November 22. The rebels
were led by Joso Maria Gonzales, pres
ident of the Democratic club of Guer
Brig. Gen. Thomas, commanding the
Colorado division of the United States
army, held a consultation here early
today with Mexican Consul Yzabal.
Gen. Thomas reported the trainmen

One Battle Is Fought in Northern
Part of Chihuahua
EL PASO, Tex., Nov. 26.—The Xl
Paso Herald this afternoon received
from its staff correspondent, who left
Juarez Friday morning for the Mor
mon colonies In Northern rhihuahua, a
telegram saying that a battle had been
fought between insurrectionists and
officers on Wednesday in that region,
nnd that the Mormons wore arming
themselves In preparation to repulse an
attack if any were made. The telegram
"Nueva Casas Grandes, Mex.—At Ma
naqulpa, 125 miles south of here, two
insurrectionists were killed and a num
ber of police and lnsurrectoa were
wounded. This fight took place on
Wednesday. All Is quiet at Manaqulp*.
"Two hundred tnsurrectos who start
ed to clean up Manaqulpa Wednesday
are now reported to be within fifty
miles of here and headed for Colonia
Juarez. A telephone message from Co
lonia Juarez this mornlg said that
every one was heavily armed and that
the Mormons were prepared to protect
their town."
LAREDO, Texas, Nov. 26.—The Mex
ican government tonight llfted'tho em
bargo on the use of all the telegraph
wires and furnished the Associated
Press with Its direct leased wire to tho
City of Mexico.
For the first time in five days a full
press service is going into the republic.
The fact that the government finds it
convenient to do without one of Its few
direct circuits Is taken as an indica
tion that the situation is well In hand
and there is no further foar of an out
break in the Interior.
Attorney General Quoted Show

"Immediately on publication in the
Los Angeles Examiner of November
23, 1910, of a statement reflecting upon
the California Consolidated Oil com
pany, of which I am president, I sent
the following telegram to the attorney
general of the United States:
" 'Attorney General George W. Wick

" "Los Angeles Examiner of Novem
ber 23d published an article stating
that Postmaster General Hitchcock
and his assistant. Warren W. Dixon,
are Investigating the California Con
solidated Oil company, of which I am
president. The article states that Mr.
Dixon has said that this company is
in the infant class in comparison with
Burr brothers, and terms the Califor
nia Consolidated Oil company a "got
rich-quiok concern." I earnestly re
quest that you will use all the power
of your office for a full investigation
of the California Consolidated Oil com
pany, if you deem that necessary, and
at the game time I demand that Post
master General Hitchcock be forced to
prove tho assertions made by his as
sistant. I beg that you will have this
done at the earliest possible moment.
The article I complain of has Just
reached me here on the Mascot prop

Novelist Asks Taft to Pardon So
cialist Editor Warren
NEW YORK, Nov. 26.—Upton Sin
clair, the novelist, has written a letter
to President Taft declaring that un
less the president pardons Fred War
ren, editor of the Appeal to Reason, a
Socialist periodical, a revolution of
violence would supplant the peaceable
methods now employed by Socialists to
change conditions in America.
Warren was sentenced to serve six
months at Fort Leavenworth and to
pay a fine of $1500 in the federal court
at Fort Scott, Kas., for printing in
the Appeal a reward for "anyone kid
naping former Governor Taylor, in
dicted for tho murder of Governor
Gotsbel, from Indiana." Tho federal
circuit court of appeals recently af
firmed the sentence. Sinclair wrote:
"I cannot believe that you, under
oath to maintain the republican form
of government, can permit so wicked
an instance of persecution for political
reasons to be made a precedent. It Is
within your power immediately to par
don Warren and rebuke subservient
corporation Judges. If you fall, oni re
sult will be that the men who today
are devoting their efforts to social
transformation through legal and con
stitutional methods will be driven to
extra legal tnd extra constitutional
methods, and the revolution that is
Inevitable in this country within the
present decade will be a revolution of
violence and not a political revolution
as Socialists desire."

McCarthy Writes to Grand Jury
Demanding Inquiry of Stories
That He Took $70,000
San Francisco Executive Avers
'Malicious Canards' Are
Circulated by Foes
(Associated Press)
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 26.— In a
letter to the grand Jury which became
public last night Mayor P. H. McCar
thy called on that body to begin forth
with an investigation of his official acts
with v view to determining whether
any foundation oxisted for rumors
which, he said, had been persistently
circulated by political enemies of the
present Union Labor administration
that ho had recently accepted two
bribes of $10,000 and $60,000 respect
The mayor supplied the grand jury
with a list of "certain responsible citi
zens" who, he alleged, had circulated
the statement "which, if true, leaves
the grand jury no other option than to
return indictments against myself as
the mayor of San Francisco."
The list of names submitted by the
mayor will not bo revealed until after
the deliberations of the grand jury.
After reciting charges concerning the
circulation of the rumors the letter
"As an embellishment of the story, it
is asserted that with proof of these
crimes I have been waited upon by
three local newspaper editors and by
them dramatically confronted with the
evidence of my guilt, whereupon, as the
story runs, I supinely bogged for mercy
and have been told that as soon as the
Panama Pacific exposition matter is
settled by congress my resignation as
mayor would be accepted by the trin
ity of editors referred to, unloss, for
sooth, they conclude In their wisdom
to bring the wrath of t.hn law on my
dishonored head."
The letter concludes:
"While I believe that the malicious
canard now being circulated may be
easily traced to my political antago
nists, the fact remains that this com
munity is entitled to full and accurate
