TROOPS LEAVE MEXICAN PORT Final Evacuation of Vera Cruz by American Force Under General Funston Begins. U. S. RETAINS MONEY Department Arranges to Take Away 300 Mexican Civil ians Who Fear to Stay. Washington. Nov. 23. American troops which hnvo held Vera Cruz since last April, were evacuating the city and sailing for home today and officials here expect sunset will see the Mexican flag acnin floating over the ancient fortress of San Juan and the American troopers well on their way homeward across the gulf. Dltpatches early today from Major General Funston said his furtherest outposts had hon withdrawn at f o'clock; at lo o'clock troops guarding the railroads at the approaches of the city were withdrawn and at 11 the embarkation wns on in earnest. Gen eral Funston reported he expected to sail for Galveston at noon. H re ported constitutionalist troops under General -guilar were taken possession of the city. Occupation of the Mexican port In reprisal for Huerta's insult to the flag at Tampico. has cost the United States more than a score of lives, some in battle and some from disease ;md ac cording to some estimates aa much as ten million dollars. But Mexico will be asked to pay no indemnity Ad ministration officials want that fact to stand out as an added evidence of the disinterested friendship of the Fnited States for her southern nclgli Dor, Recognition to be Avoided. General Funston has instructions to urn the city over to none of the Mex can factions and thereby avoid what night bo construed as a recognition of ne of them. His orders simply are o bring his troops away and leave o city to whichever faction takes pos session Carranza s commander. Aguilar. is ft w j THE WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH CO. H nearest, but Carranza troops which have swerved in their allegiance to Villa are not far distant. There have been some evidences that Carranza intended to move hi3 capital to Vera Cruz upon the American evacuation. The Fourth, Seventh, Nineteenth and Twenty-eighth infantry and the First battalion of the Fourth field artillery and two squadrons of the Sixth cavalry will return to Galveston. The three regiments of marines will go to Philadelphia Vera Cruz, Nov. 23. The American forces of occupation under General Frederick Funston, after a stay in Vera Cruz of seven months, today began embarking on the steamships which will return them to the United States. The outposts began falling back it 9 o'clock in the. morning and l wo hours later the first American soldiers were going over the sides of the waiting transports. Gejeral Funston established his bead juarters on board the transport Cristobal and all the organizations of his command began at daylight the work of moving out their equipment preparatory to final evacuation. Ev erything progressed smoothly Be yond the American outposts there had been mobilized during the night a force of Constitutionalists As the Americans withdrew, first from the outlying districts and then from the .it-, itself, the Constitutionalists fol lowed them along and nominally oc cupied the territory evacuated. Inhabitants Are Nervous. The city is quiet, but the inhabi tants are nervous and apprehensive concerning the final outcome of this transfer of authority. All saloons in Vera Cruz remained closed today on orders of General Funston. and many commercial establishments de cided not to open their doors The government of Vera Cruz is not being turned over to any faction of Mexicans The territory is being evacuated,- and as fast as the Amer icans go out Constitutionalists are coming in. U. S. Retains Money. The American army officials are taking with them the moneys col lected for customs and from other sources of revenue These ultimately will go ro some Mexican government which the United States may deem a proper one to receive them. The American quartermaster de partment has arranged to take away from Vera Cruz something like 300 Mexicans who did not care to be in the city when their countrymen again came Into possession. American forces were ordered to Beize Vera Cruz in April of this year, on account of a series of acts on the part of the Mexican authorities to which Washington had protested In vain. Among these vas an incident at Tampico when a boat load of Amer ican bluejacketfl were arrested. Amer ican marines and bluejackets landed at Vera Cruz April 21. an the city was occupied with a loss of seventeen American lives. In due time the American blue jackets and marines were, removed and forces of the army under General Funston took possession At the time Vera Cruz was occupied, Vlc toriano Huerta was provisional presi dent of the republic Today Huerta is in Europe, and the constitutional ists who opposed him are in control of Mexico City The American force embarked at Vera Cruz today numbers about 6000 men. Havana. Nov 23. The safety of Cu ban citizens in Mexico is becoming r. subject of much concern to the Cuban government It is feared that with the departure of the American forces from Vera Cruz the positions' of the Cubans will not be safe It Is understood that the Cuban govern ment is considering the Immediate dispatch of a cruiser to Vera Cruz ' to bring away such Cubans as desire to leave. There Is talk of sending ; the cruiser Cuba or the cruiser Palria ' or even both ot these ships to Mexico. I Captain Asked to Explain. I Washington.

ArtvortlPinont ROBERTS TELLS WHY PEOPLE Of UTAH IH11 The fact that Ogden people are will ing church goers when the opportu nlty is given them to hear a forceful exposition of any phase of the "higher thought,1 was again evidenced ye terday afternoon when nearlv H00 persons crowded into the Tabernacle to participate In the special Thanks giving service for which Elder B. H Roberts had been announced afl th speaker. The service was conducted by Elder Frank Williams In addition to the address of the af ternoon, an especially appropriate and pleasing musical program waa given by the Tabernacle choir and soloists, under the direction of Prof. Joseph Ballantync. Organist Sam F. Whitaker played a beautiful organ prelude and the song numbers wen-, as follows: "Count Your Many Blessings" .Choir "An Angel from On High" . .Choir "Praise to God. Immortal Praise" Lillian Robertshaw, Douglass Brian and Choir. Elder B H Robert' address was a brilliant and deeply impressive on, his ability as a public speaker com bined with the depth of thought ex pressed in his talk of nearly two hours duration holding the close attention of the large eongregation. The speak er took as his theme the text of the 100th psalm wherein the anclcn' prophet David tells the people to re turn thanks to God f'r the many bless ings they had received. After reading the text, he analyzed it and said that the same reason ex ists today for giving thanks to God as existed then for God is the same now as he was in the time of David." "God." he continued, "is the most permanent thing that the mind can conceivp of. We. In this modern day. can come to "this" God for He Is good and blesses all generations " Continuing. Elder Roberts reviewed the history of the American Thanks giving day. The first one, he said, was celebrated on the 13th of Decem ber. 1621, in Massachusetts This was a purely New England celebra tion, but in 1789. President Washing ton proclaimed .November 2G a nation al Thanksgiving holiday, and. largely through the efforts of Mrs Sarah J. Hale, a magazine editress of the time, congress made the holiday perma nent. It cames, he a.ii.l at a time v. hen the harvest has been garnered and the people should be thankful for the sin of ingratitude is the greatest of all sins. Speaking directly to the members of his own faith, the speaker said thev had much to be thankful for; good parents, from whom they had inher ited healthy bodies and minds of av erape strength; good food; the oppor tunities for good education; a splen did atmosphere, and beautiful envir onments. "In Utah," he continued, "a man has the best fighting ground In the world for success, if he Is ambitious; for the soil Is fruitful and the climate incomparable. No more glorious land In which men dwell exists than this same state of Utah. "The new dispensation of the gos ne gives us a complete revelation of God to us, through his son Jesus." Continuing, he said, that God was closer to the people than the ausocla tion of a brother and stated that, for this fellowship they should also be grateful. "We should be grateful. " he stated further "for the nation in which we live for Its free Institutions, for the high standard of civilization which it maintains and for the peace it enjoys while one-half the world Is at war. Hod established it through the hands of wise men whom W called for that special purpow. It Is a government bv the people and of the people and every citizen Is a sovereign aud not a subject. God had protected it through days of stress and trouble and it is now easily the greatest nation in the world In every respect. We should thank Him for lis creation even ns for the creation of the world and the human race. Speaking further, he said that the Cnited States had a reputntion for Jus tice that had brought it the honor and respect of all nations, and this In con trast lo the evidence of man's Inhu manity to man In the foreiqn nations wnn nlso a c2Ue for gratefulness. A tnout Impressive exposition of this contrast was given by Elder Roberts In a review of the presint war in Europe and la suramlug It up he said "And on this Thanksgiving day re member this condition. thunk GoJ with all your heart:; for the peace that exists in your country and pray lliui to preserve it." In conclusion he said that the one hope of the warring nations of Eur ope today was that when they were worn out by the awful struggle, the United States would act as the medi ator in bringing about peace in a man ner throuch which all would receive Justice. Th.. benedic tion was pronounced by Patriarch II. C. Jacobs. GENERAL BLANCO HEADSOFF PLAN Refuses to Leave Mexico City to Be Sacked by the Zapata Forces.
