commanding the department of the

Presidio Troops Arrive
[Special Dispatch to The Call] .
TUCSON'. Ariz., Feb. 6.—Arriving* here
today from the Presidio, troop X of
the First cavalry Immediately started
preparations for a forced march by
having a number of horses shod. Troop
B arrived on the border at .Nor;ale., to

Another Outbreak Rumored
LARKDO, Tex.. Feb. 6.—Without ex
planation, announcement was made to
night that the Mexican Federal tele
graph company had commandeered all
telegraph wires south of Nuevo Laredo.
Fast upon this came rumors of a revo
lutionary outbreak at Saltillo. in <*oa
hulla. but up to a late hour confirmation
of this report was lacking. However, a
more plausible explanation is that the
government telegraph company prob
ably will utilize the lines through
Nuevo Laredo to clear up the crush of
business [ occasioned by developments
near Juarez. j
Denies Defeat
'GALES, Ariz., Feb. 6.—President
Sandoval of Nogales, Sonora, gave out
the following statement today:
"General Lorenzo Torres has not been
defeated near Tonichi, as reported. We
hear from him from day to day. He
has established headquarters at Tonichi
with- the idea of protecting southern
Sonora from rebel bands fleeing* west
ward from Chihuahua.
"I received a telegram today from
General Luis Torres at Hermosillo. say
ing that son federals under Colonel
Rabago hail entered Ciudad Juarez,
. after having defeated the rebels with a
loss of SO killed."
Rebellion Spreads
• TUCSON, Ariz., Feb. 6.—The first in
formation that the Insurrection in
Mexico had spread to the state at
.Sinaloa. on the gulf of California, im- j
mediately south of the states of So-1
nora and Crihuahua. was received here j
today in a dispatch from ( .illaean.
capital of that state. The telegram
'stated that a band of revolutionists
appeared at Tamasula, located on the
border* between the states of Sinalao
and Tnirango, and by threatening the 1
merchants of that city had forced the
payment of a bounty of $800. The in
surrectos, numbering about 80 men.
are reported to have left Tamazula and
headed for Cullacan. Governor Redo
of Slnaloa has sent,out 100 federal
.troops to meet them.*
Battle May Be Near
BAN DIEGO, Feb. —Persistent re
ports that the and of Mexican rebels
near. Campo, 51 miles southeast of
here, numbers 600 men and that Gov
ernor Vega of Lower California with
150 troops and M volunteers had
•moved east from Tecarte were received
In San Diego this morning. The esti
mates of the act number of men in
the rebel band are conflicting, but the
real number is believed to be 150. The
roads between Campo and "Tecarte are
in bad condition and slow progress
. will be made by both forces.

Offer of. Robert Collier Is
Accepted by the Gov
ernment
. WASHINGTON, Feb. 6.—The ■ cap
" ture by the Mexican revolutionists of
'San Ignaclo, a. town opposite - Fort
Hancock, Tex., was reported to the
state department in a telegram' from
the American consul at* Ciudad Por
firlo Diaz. ■' "
Bo far as an aeroplane can discover.
General Hoyt, the commander of the
department of Texas, probably will
in a position soon to determine the
facts as to the activities of the insur
gents along the Mexican border. At
present owing to the conflicting,re
ports and absurd and .extravagant
claims on the part-of die rival leaders
and their public mouthpieces, the
United States army officers, who are
doing their best to maintain the neu
trality law in force on ' the Mexican
border, find the task difficult and the
troops are continually, making wild
goose chases after military cxpe.f
tions reported to be crossing the Rio
Grande, which rarely materialize. In
the meantime when the troops are on
these false scents, it is presumed. that
armed parties make their way across
the river at unguarded points.
Today General Wood, chief of staff
let It be known that at least one aero
plane would be employed in observa
tion work along til** Rio Grande. This
decision was reached after a consulta
tion with General Allen,* chief signal
offlcar, who is In -charge of the aero
nautical service of the"«war depart
ment, and John Barry Ryan, president
of the United States aeronautical re
serve.*''&HfinHlH_________. ;- -
The war department has accepted
Robert Collier's offer of one of bis
new Wright biplanes, which Is now In
New York, and this will be rushed to
the Mexican border by express and
turned.over to; General Hoyt., The re
serve is preparedi to furnish other ma
chines for military use at short notice,"
and if the Collieri biplane proves to;be
of real service it will be supplemented
by at ; least half a dozen others."*, With
that number of machines soaringAi^i
stantly . over the crooked ; chani*** of
the' Rio Grande and back into;the .-..iii
try* ••ter? lllegaf; expeditions may.be
organizing, it is believed- the 'military
will be able practically to establish an
impenetrable patrol along the border.

Where Do YOU Think the Panama-Pacific Exposition Site Should Be Located?
Where do the people want the Panama-Pacific International Exposition Grounds? That is. now an important ques
tion. The board of directors of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition Company will shortly select the site . for the
fair. There will be much public discussion on that matter. The Call desires to secure a formulated expression ■of that opin
ion. It invites its readers to voice their personal opinions. Already there have been seven sites proposed. They were
described at length In The Call of Thursday, Feb. 2. The selection will probably be made from among that seven, although it
is possible that others may be suggested. Sites already proposed, descriptions of which appear herewith, are -the following:

PUBLIC RECEPTION
FOR FAIR WORKERS
Ambassador Reid Will Also Be Honored by
Panama Pacific Committee
Plans for the public demonstration to
be given in honor of the Panama-Pacific
delegation to Washington.-will be can
vassed this morning at a meeting of the
reception and entertainment committee,
James Rolph Jr., chairman, to be held in
the headquarters of the Panama-Pacific
exposition, tenth floor, Merchants' ex
change building. The committee has
been holding consultations since last
Tuesday, when the action of congress
started San Francisco steadily -on its
way toward the goal.
in addition to the discussion of plans
for the greeting of the Washington
boosters, the committee will consider a
plan for a recept-ion to be given White
law Reld. United States ambassador to
Great Britain, now Visiting in San Ma
teo county. It will be Ambassador Reid
in his official capacity who will present
to the government and the people-of i
Great Britain the invitation of the I
United States government to celebrate :
the opening of the P<yiama canal at j
San Francisco and to.'exhibit their j
progress and development at the San !
Francisco exposition.
INVITATIONS FORMAL
Under the procedure followed in in
ternational expositions in the United
States, the United States government, '
by the president, prepares an Invitation
to the nations of the world to exhibit j
at the exposition. This invitation is i
communicated through the state de- I
partment at Washington an _the am- ;
bassadors and ministers representing !
the United States at foreign capitals
fo the foreign governments.
The directors of the exposition feel
that the presence in the vicinity of San,
Francisco at this time of Ambassador!
Whitelaw P.eld is peculiarly fortunate,
as they will now have the opportunity
of directly Interesting him In the .Pan
ama-Pacific international exposition, so
that he. In turn, may be In? a 'better
position to impress upon the English
government the stupendous nature of I
the exposition to be held in this city.
ROOSEVELT INTERESTED
The directors are. not overlooking the
fact that former President Theodore
Roosevelt will be in San Francisco anVl
Berkeley the latter part of next month.
Roosevelt will, be particularly inter
ested inthe Panama-Pa cine Interna
tional exposition, because to him more
than to any other one man is due the
credit for the expeditious construction |
of the Panama canal, which the fair
will celebrate. President Roosevelt
started the work on. the canal and i
throughout his administration gave his j
fullest enthusiasm and executive force
to its problems. President Taft has fol
lowed Roosevelt with, all his enthu
siasm in continuing the work.
No man In America will be more
terested in the completion of the canal
and the celebration which will .follow
that achievement than former President
Roosevelt, and the directors of the ex
position will endeavor to arrange a re
ception In his honer. while here. ThaL
too. will be considered at the meeting
today.. '.%HiHBpHB_M| Hj_MMR__BR '

Nevada will undoubtedly increase Its
appropriation, for a. state building and
exhibit at the Panama-Pacific exposi
tion. There Is already 'pending before
the state legislature a bill for a $50,
--000 appropriation for the state, but
many members of the legislature be
lieve that sum too small to do justice
to. tho enterprise and wealth of Ne
vada and want $100,000 appropriated.
Senator: P. 1,. Flaulgnn. republican
national committeeman of Nevada,, is
most energetic-among those working
for a larger appropriation.
_'i.\_l*w__ FAVORS IXCREASE
In a statement to a Reno newspaper,
Senator Flanlgan said: .
"1 have called upon "the legislature
to make 1 an * appropriation of $100,000,
instead of $50,000, for the erection and
maintenance of an exhibit building at
the Panama-Pacific exposition, one that
would be a credit, to the state and
which I would bring to it advantages
worth many times the cost' '. * " ''""
,'.* "I wish you would ask and urge the
people, through your paper to ' flood
the senators and assemblymen with
messages, either, by post* or wire, call
ing upon them to* make the Increased
appropriation and without delay.
•'The fair means millions of dollars
for this state if the people take ad
vantage of the opportunities offered.
Now is the time to get busy. Let the
legislators know that the appropria
tion is a popular measure. Nevada will
benefit more than any: other of the
western states outside of California by
the holding of this great exposition.
"The state must not be niggardly in
the matter of placing an exhibit of pro
ducts there which will astonish the
visitors and impress them that: Nevada

VERBA BUENA IS
I SUGGESTED SITE
Oakland Citizens Propose
Island as Location of
Exposition- -
OAKLAND, Feb. 6.—Verba Buena isl
and has been suggested to city officials
as a site for the Panama-Pacific expo
sition. Citizens writing to Mayor Frank
K. Mott and to City Engineer F.C. Tur
ner have broached the subject. Con
sideration, by offices has brought the
conclusion that'll would be feasible tcp
make the bay.lsland the fairgrounds.
It. .V. Weymouth, an, architect and
engineer of San Francisco, addressed a
letter to Mayor Mott making the sug
gestion. M. A. Knapp of Oakland went
to Turner with the project. . Turner
discussed the scheme today as one easy
of accomplishment, with tne fair fund's
available, and not more expensive than
would be the construction of exposition
grounds at any other point.
-The Island. Turner explains. Is In the
city limits of Shu Francisco; it is the
center of the bay, in which the world's
navies would be anchored and would
maneuver; It has slopes and level
spaces adapted to exposition use, and
the long shoals at the north would
make an Ideal spot for aquatic sports.
•The cost of handling an exposition
on the island would not be greater "than
at other sites," said Turner. ; "The sug
gestion of the island is welcome be
cause It directs attention to the feasi
bility and desirability of establishing a
union terminal on the island. A tun
nel to the Island will certainly be a
necessity in the future^ and the art of
tunneling has progressed so"that;such
a project Is practicable now. The two
counties could co-operate | In the tunnel
work, and. the transcontinental rail
roads, in order to establish a union
terminal free from great dangers in
bay traffic, would bear their share of
the cost."; -^"^^KKg-SIPWiBSBS^SK^S
The men who sponsor the scheme ar
gue that the island location would
make the exposition the wonder of the
world.; The buildings would be; visible
from; the mainland on all sides and
from the Golden gate. ' ' '.

PARK LEADS IN THE
FIRST DAY’S, VOTE
Merchants and Residents, Earnestly at Work
- Boosting Their Sections in Call Contest
decided sentiment in favor of Golden
gate park as the most fitting site for
the Panama-Pacific exposition.of 1915
was shown by the result of The' Call's
straw * vote taken yesterday.
This, however, is the first day of.the
battle." Landowners and improvement
clubs realizing tha_*_. stake of nearly
$20,000,000 is dangling within their
reach, are organizing for the fight. The
citizens of the several districts feel that
the, prize is worthy of their best and
mightiest efforts atid every, community.,
which possesses a site favorable to ex
position purposes, is taking advantage
o fthe opportunity offered by The Call
to present Its claims and secure votes. j
Where the site Is to be is. yet a mys
tery. The officials of the Panama-Pa
e-Jfie exposition are keenly Interested in
the outcome;of The Gall vote,. feeling
that in this : fair and, unbiased way
they can learn the popular sentiment
on" the perplexing questions. ':. All the
votes cast, togehter with the sugges
tions altered to The (.'all will be placed
In the hands, of the committee and will
form an important factor in the ulti
mate decision.
SEVERAL HUNDRED VOTE
Several hundred votes were cast. Par
tisans from ail sections of the city. came
to. the fore. . Second: to. Golden Gate
park was Harbor view, and but a sin
gle vote behind came -the i water front
of San Francisco. Next In ; order came
Lake Merced. Tanforan, Visltaclon val
ley and the Oakland arid. Alameda
waterfronts.". *:^4___SBaKßt*
The merchants in Devlsadero street]
and others in that vicinity were quick
to seize the * opportunity " presented by
The Call" of asserting their claims. A
few hours after the appearance: of ; The
Call the business rigs and wagons of
that section of the city were carrying
signs, boosting for the: park as the
proper, site. The result showed the
vote. : Today the ! other Improvement
clubs -will;organize and begin the work
of gathering in votes for their respect
ive districts.. Noticeable among the site
boosters were the ; members of the San
Bruno 1 improvement club. '.ti^HMBBMi
Within - a C-w hours after the voting
-Started they "*■ stepped in to the . flght
and began working for the site arouna
Hunter's point. 'This was the flrst tlpie
that this location had been forcibly
brought to the attention of the exposi
tion committee; and the public but sO
strong were the claims of the commun
ity that by nightfall it was well In the
running, standing an equal chance with
the others. 71 ..'"... '..' TV- '•■' '._*
,*- Scores of letters, were received by
The Call covering the subject "in Its
every^phase. Albert K. Gray, 4 state
curator of the Memorial museum' was
strongly-against the park being used.
He said in his; letter that as the ' city
grew would require every available
inch of open and free.air. and that to
litter the park with buildings was de
stroying,, the. principal :features of the
park. He stood out In favor Of the San
Francisco water front, pointing." out
that' if this; section of the city were
allowed , to. remain In Its present condi
tion, the; guests iof , the. world ; would
"be asked to enter a -city of palaces
through'the kitchen'door."
Charles Adams,. 2168 Union street,
wrote in favor of Harbor View. "From
here." he' said,*, "the • visitor i would ' have
a wonderful scenic beauty of the west— *
the golden straits. This in itself would
instill an inspiration which would be
a lasting advertisement to the city and
which Insincerely believe: would iprove
truly beneficial." „" .-.. 1, •..'-' -, •..''

How I Made
'y^ My Hair Grow
Woman With Marvelous) Beautiful
Hair Gives Simple Home Prescription
Which She Used With Most Remark
able Results.
.1 was greatly troubled with dandruff
and falling hair. I tried many. adver
tised hair preparations and various pre
scriptions, but-they all signally failed;
many of them made my hair greasy so
it. was impossible to comb "it or do it
up properly. I think that many of the
things I tried,were positively injurious
and from my own experience I can not
too strongly caution you against using
preparations containing wood . alcohol
and other, poisonous substances. I be
lieve they injure the roots of the hair."
After my long list of failures, I finally
found a simple prescription which I can
unhesitatingly state is beyond-doubt
the most wonderful thing for the hair
I have ever seen. Many of my/friends,
have also used it. and obtained wonder- .
ful effects therefrom. It not only Is a,
powerful stimulant *to the* growth of
the -hair and for restoring gray hair
to.its natural color, .but it is equally
good for removing dandruff, giving the
hair life,and brilliancy., etc., and fori
the purpose of keeping the scalp in first
class condition. It also makes the hair
easier „ to comb and arrange In nice
form. I have a friend who-used it-two
months, and during that time It has
not only stopped the falling of his hair
and wonderfully • increased its growth,
but it practically restored all ' of his
hair to its natural color. You can ob
tain the ingredients i for ..making this
wonderful preparation from almost any
druggist. The prescription is as fol
lows:; s
Bay Rum. 6 oz.; Menthol Crystals, **.
drachml'Lavonade Composee', 2 oz. If
,you like it perfumed add a few drops
of To-Kalon Perfume.. which mixes '
perfectly with othef Ingredients. • This,
however, Is not necessary. • „
Be sure to ask the druggist for ail
the-enclosures in the I^avona de Com
posee' package. One of them entitles
you': to a handsome free sprinkler top
for your hair. tonic bottle and you are
also entitled to*;receive ■■■ the free ad
vice of an expert on the hair by simply,
writing to the address you will find
enclosed in the 1 carton. **"-'., . .
Apply night and morning; rub thor- :
oughly Into the scalps
, Go to your druggist and ask for an
eight ounce bottle containing six ounces
of ; Bay; Rum: * also * one-half drachm. of •
Menthol Crystals, and a two ounce bot- .
tie ', of ' Lavonai de Con*posee'. ;. Mix , the
ingredients yourself at your own home.
Add the Menthol Crystals to the Buy
