Re ports from Doctor Hale, now con ferring with Carranza in Sonora, show that the northern rebels have a strong, compact organization, etrongly armed. Although President Wilson is keeping a strong patrol of troops along the border and maintaining a powerful war fleet in Mexican wa ters, only the massacre of Americans •would precipitate intervention in Mexico, according to the present fixed policy. President Wilson be lieves that Huerta can not hold out much longer against the pressure from without that besets him. Tl ELI EVE HUERTA £> WILL BE ARRESTED PARIS.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1913 Long Stride Is Made in Prog ress of Big Bore; Latest Methods Are in Use Concrete is being poured into the Stockton street tunnel this week for the first time, making a long stride in the progress of the big bore. The contractors, Jacobsen, Bade & Co have adopted the new eastern method of forcing the mixture through long steel pipes by means of compressed air under tremendous pressure. This means the discarding of the man with the pushcart and the distri bution of concrete to any part of the job with the ease of a suburbanite watering his front lawn. Work on all parts of the tunnel is going ahead rap idly, the latest methods and machinery being used in all the operations. JOO MEN AT WORK Since June 26, when work began, a gang of 100 men has been working night and day. The bore, estimated to cost $337,000, will be 911 feet in length, extending from a point above Sutter street under the steep Stockton street hill to the northern portal at Sacra mento street. It must be completed by next June, and present Indications are that the work will be finished on time, especially as the strata encoun tered are not as hard as was antici pated. Work is now in progress at both ends, one shift of men working from 8 o'clock in the morning until 5 at night and the other from 5 p. m. until 3 a. m. The greatest progress has been made at the Sutter street portal. Three drifts are being sunk, one each side and one at the top of the archway. The west side drift has been sunk 340 feet, the east side 189 feet and the top 309 feet. SIDEWALKS Uf TUNNEL At the Sutter street portal a huge ditch has been dug, allowing the men to work in the open. Later, when the concrete is installed upon the rein- : forced frames, the excavation above will be filled in. Hotels and apartment houses have taken advantage of the situation to have entrances cut through from their ground floors to the tunnel, which will be equipped with nine foot sidewalks and a 36 foot roadway,, as well as tracks for street cars. The ditch has necessitated the raising of several buildings by the addition of an extra ground floor. The Hotel Victoria tunnel entrance haa been completed.

Has Preserved Speci mens of Trees That Lived 1,000,000 Years Ago Of greater scientific interest than the famous petrified forest of the southwest are a few bits of redwood, perfectly preserved, which thrived in the Berkeley hills hundreds of thou sands of years ago, perhaps a million years back in prehistoric time. The precious splinters are possessed by Dr. John C. Merriam, professor of paleontology in the University of Cal ifornia. They were found in two places, one near Mussel rock, the other some distance away, where gigantic trees had fallen and been broken up. The wood neither decayed nor petri fied, but has retained its grain and markings. Professor Merriam is using the spe cimens to prove to his classes that wood may keep for uncounted ages. He whittles from the pieces, the shav ings falling from his Jacknife exactly as from freshly hewn redwood.
