several departments of the govern-
ment or which look to them for early
treatment in the future, because the
list is long, very long, and would
suffer in the abbreviation to which 1
should have to subject it. I shall sub

of the several departments. In which
these subjects nre set fori It in care-

Little by little he has been com

("ripple Creek, Colo.. Doc. 2.
Fighting against tons of rock and
dirt, hundreds of miners working In
shifts of 25 minutes each, struggled
today to reach the three men still

here, the property of J. T Mtlllken
of st Louis, iii which four men were
entombed late yesterday afternoon
by a cave-in and from which "one
R18JH has been taken alive A fifth
miner was entombed in the lirlst
n.Hs mine adjoining and rescued late
last night
Grave fears for the safety of the
men, Frank M. Woods. Patrick Ke
vany and Samuel Sorenson, were ex
pressed early today by rescuers, who
fear that a second slide had occur
red between them and the Impris
oned men
Thomas Spindel. one of the Im
prisoned miners, was the first to be
lescued last night. He was at the
eighth level of the Golden Cycle. Af
ter nine hours' work In the Christ
mas mine at the fourth level, Frank
Gabrls was taken out. uninjured
Poth he and Spindel had been pro
tected from the crushing slide by
the catching of "key" boulders which
checked the rush of rock and dirt
just before it reached them.
Deputy Mine Inspector James
Stewart made an investigation of tho
Golden Cycle slide today. Ho ex
pressed the belief that the slide was
due to the failure of large support
ing pillars between the stopes of Xhf
fourth and third levels. Five stopes,
filled with debris, parallel and per
pendicular to each other evidently
collapsed and came together, anil
then the slide was precipitated
through tho other levels to the bot
tom of the mine.
The main shaft remained practlc
ally clear and It was from the lovels
of that shaft that tho rescue work
was conducted.
Throughout the forenoon the prog
ress of rescue workers was slow, ow
ing to the necessity of timbering ev
ery foot of ground recovered. At
noon no response had been received
to signals of the rescuers and it was
feared that the thr. e entombed men
had perished. Rescuers reported the
rock still falling.

Hurried Preparations Being

Plan Aggressive Activities
Southwest Early Attack to
Be Made on Mexico City.
Juarez., Mex , Her. 2 Hasty prep
arations were under way today in
the rebel ranks for the prompt occu
patlon of f'hihuahua the picturesque
capital of Chihuahua state, which is
reported to have been evacuated by
the federal troops because of threat
ened starvation of its 36,000 popula
tion. Pointing out that of the important
federal strongholds in the north only
Monterey and Guaymos remained.
General Francisco Villa, the rebel
leader, said hihuahua would be

"We will be shooting at the ram
parts of Mexico City within a
month." said Villa. "A mob in the
capital can oust Huerta in a day "
With 3500 rebels and 16 field pieces
advances as far as Carrizal ninety
miles south of Juarez, on the way
to Chihuahua. Villa will remain hero
until he communicates with General
Yenustlano Car rani a, before he per
sonally proceeds south. Ai Chihua
hua he expects to Join General Chao
and other rebel leaders and with a
combined force or 70u) will proceed
toward Zacatecas. the first important
dty south of Torreon. Other rebel
forces. Villa said, are to proceed up
the west coast toward Guadalajara.
Poor People Starving.
According to late reports which
Villa said he received by couriers
who travel..,) overland 130 miles to
Villa Ahumada where the telegraph
line has been connected with Juarez,
tho desertion of Chihuahua by the
federals was brought about by the
pressure of the citizens. The peo
ple R was said, protest that If the
federal garrison resisted the fight
Inc would result In the wholesale
killing of non-combatants that the
poor were half starved and that the
wealthy residents could not expect
mercy at the hands of ihe Invaders.
General Me.rcado Is said to have de
cided on flight to the American bor
der so that he could communicate
with Provisional President Huerta.
Communication betwpen Chihuahua
and Mexico City has been impossible
for weeks
Hundreds Flee Across Desert.
Reports received today from the
telegraph outpo-sf at Villa Ahumada
idated that hundreds of men. women
and children were fleeing across the
desert from Chihuahua to OJinaga
and other border points. Long wag
on trains, horses and burros, laden
with household goods and valuables
and followed by a scurrying horde of
people on foot were seen. It appears
as though almost the whole city, car
rying Its richest possession, had been
set iu motion suddenly and was strug
gling through clouds of dust to keep
pace with a hurrying escort of fed
erals, according to the rebel scouts
Among the refugees were said to
be members of the wealthy Terrazas
and Creel families, whose lives were
threatened by the projected rebl at
tack on Chihuahua. Thse families,
some of whom were heads of bank
ing institutions, had been isolated in
Chihuahua for many weeks.
All Facing Starvation.
The reports brought to General
Villa were that food supplies were
so scant that not ouly the poor but
the wealthy faced starvation and that
finally these representations Induced
the federals to evacuate.
Villa sent conrlers south today to
learn whether General Chao, the con
stitutionalist, had entered the city.
Villa said he did not regard the
evacuation of ( hihuahua as a com
plete surrender of federal authority,
hut rather that the federal troops had
decided to adopt guerrilla tactics and
after replenishing their supplies and i
communicating with Mexico City,
planued to continue fighting.

watched each exit to shoot tho des

Barlj today fumes from wet gun
powder were directed Into the under-
ground corridors. These fumes are
nea anu nans close to th ground
beneath the strata or lighter ga6es
that have been pouring into the mine
since yesterday morning. It was ex

settle into several blind sropos not

Cranovich Not in Mine.
The seven sheriffs in charge are
convinced that Mike Cranovich, who
recently shot and seriously wounded
his wife, is not in the mine or that h!
would have surrendered himself.
They found evidence that he had j
hidden there before Lopez entered tho
Andy tunnel last Friday
The failure of Lopez to attempt a
