Washington. March 10.?Indications
2a:e tonight were that the carrying
out of President Wilson's order that
American troops reenter Mexico co
capture or kill Villa and his bandits
would be le t to the man on the ground
lAiaj. Gen. Frederick Funston. After a
late conference with the president,
Secretary Baker announced that no
invasion of Mexico in force was conlemnlated.
that the troops would be
sent to disperse or capture the raiders
and would be withdrawn immediately
when their work was done or
when the de facto government was
able to insure peace along the border.
Officers of the general staff began
at once- the preparations of instructions
.cr Gen. Funston in accordance
with this annoucement. Their purport
was not revealed. Earlier in the
day Gen. Funston had suggested tha:
the plans for troop movements across
the border be kept secret. He desired
to add the element of surprise to his
weapons for exterpating the bandit

cavalry be sent to replace the mounted
force he might withdraw from
the -border patrol duty fo form the
expeditionary column or columns.
Steps to comply with tliis request were
"taken at the war department.
Whatever additional troops may 'be
needed will 'be ordered promptly to
the border. Officials of the department
and Secretary Baker himself
worked far into the night on details
of possible troop movements, supplies
and the like.
The secretary's call at the White
Hc.ise followed a busy day at the war
department. The machinery of the
general staff was set in motion immediately
after President Wilson's decision
to hunt down the raiders was j
announced at the close of the cabinet j
meeting. The war plans committee i
assembled and went, over the situation.
Little detailed information as
to the immediate situation on the
Mexican side of the border is available
Siere. Such matters are under the
jurisdiction of Gen. Funston, who has
iis own intelligence officers. The

Funston must be left unhampered to
ITvoik out the problem of pursuing the
'band'its with what ever force he thinks
^necessary and at the same time to secure
American border towns and j
ranches against repetition of the Columbus
The committee also assembled facts
;and figures in relation tc a possible
-decision to sweep the whole o. northern
Mexico with a military dragnet to !
^catch the bandits. Such a plan, It
was said, while certain to end the disturbed
conditions along the border,
would involve the use of troops by the
tens of thousands instead of regiments.
Figures as to the iorce the committee
-thought necessary for operations of
"this character were not revealed. Immediately
after they were submitted
to Secretary Baker, however, the lat
tar arranged his con erence with President
Wilson and laid the whole situation
before the commander in chief

Some apprehension of the problem

Whether Villa will concentrate his

XEWS. j j
President Barrett of the Farmers'
Union has issued tie following letter:
"The other day I read a report that
'here are 92,000 ..arms in Texas which
have no cows, 124,000 which have no
pigs, 60,000 without poultry, 306'farms
t-T-iaf A r\ r>rvf cmw p T?rninH h-av anrt
369,000 that raise no sweet potatoes, j
This statement is more than surprising;
it is appalling. If these are conditions
in Texas, one of the greatest
farming States, they exist to as great
or greater degree in other cotton'
growing States of the South.
"There is the seat of our trouble ;
her9 in the South. Too many of us !
are continuing to concentrate 011 one j

you keep on raising nothing ibut cotton
and paying out your cotton money J
for forage and food and clothing In- '
stead of making your farm furnish
your living to you, you are never going
to get anywhere and the most of
the time you'll be in debt.
"Right at this time especially, 1
want to caution you and warn you
against an all cotton crop this year.
As sure as you continue to devote
v*our attention wholly to cotton this
v-ear, you are going to come out at j
:lie little end of he horn. There is
nn if Yrm all rAmp.mhpr what
happened in 1914 when the European
war "began. You remember how it
frightened you, how it distressed you, :
iiow it left you with 'scant rations because
you .failed to make your food at
aome and had nothing but >1owt priced
cotton?not enough to pay your debts. '
"Well, if you don't look out the
sort of thing is going to happen again. |
A. big cotton crop this year is going
!^o spell the same sort of disaster for
you that you experienced in 1914, if
not worse. The price is down now !
and it is staying down. Just plant a
big crop and you'll see it tumble low-j
er still. Some millions of bales of:
last, vear'c arp still !b<Mri<r held '
because of the present prices. 'Suppose'
y-ou should add another big crop to j
this stock on hand; you know very'
well what would happen, and if you |
don't look out, it will hapipen again, j
"After the disaster of 1914 the farm- j
Drs of the South planted more forage
and food crops than ever before, and
they began to raise more cows and
pigs. Those who were fortunate
enough to do that know how well
they profited by it; know that even j
with the better price for cotton, they
would have had a hard time if they
hadn't done it.
"The European war is not over; !
there is no telling when it will end; j
it may go on for several years. Cer-1
tainly it will not end this year, and
probably not next. The German, Aus- ;
trian and Russian markets are closed 1
tight again&t your cotton; the world's |
consumption is reduced hy several j
million (bales. How can you hope for j
higher prices if you make a big crop?
It is out of the question.
"But if you will go ahead and make
your own living at home, .make some
products to sell?for the world has
got to eat?you will comc out all right
no matter what happens td cotton.
Xot only that, 'but with the snorter
uiuj; juu win iqcl juur own price ior j
ir, or at least come nearer to it than j
you have done before. j
"Every one of those 92,000 farms, i
those 124,000 farms, those 60,000 .farms |
in Texas should not only have cows j
and ]igs and poultry, but they should
grow their own grain and forage and i
garden truck, instead of paying two \
prices for it in cheap cotton. This!
applies equally to conditions in every I
ootton State in the South, to every
farmer who grows cotton at all.
"This U absolutely the only road
to farm indepen jrnce. to your independence.
You Lad better take it now.
[f you disregard this Injunction and |
plant cotton, cotton, cotton, until j
there is nothing else on your place,
set it down now that when harvest
.iine comes you are going to be wear- j
Lng the same long ..'ace you wore In the j
fall of 1914. It will be as bad. if not j
''If I knew how to make the picture
any gloomier, I should do it, and then;
lot depart in the smallest degree from I
the truth.
"You can avoid it by cutting down
rour cotton acreage and making your
>wn living on the farm. If you don't
3o it you are going to suffer. There
is no escape."
