President Wilson's addrs he

though Great Britain's reluctance to
press the Benton case at this time has
made the American situation less
acute, there are several aspects of it
which it now is practically certain
will occasion spirited debate in the
Senate in a few days.
It has became known that facts and
data concerning the numbers of for
eigners killed in Mexico since armed
revolution began there are being gath
ered by the State Department for
Senator Shively, ranking member of
the Foreign Relations Committee, who
is expected to present official records
about conditions in the Southern Re
public. 4
It was reported that Senator Fall,
of New Mexico, would open the de
bate with a speech pointing to condi
tions in Mexico past and present, and
ursine: a change of policy-.
The New Mexico Senator presented
to the Foreign Relations Committee
Pedro Del Vilar and Cecelio Ocon,
representing the political interests of
Felix Diaz.
Members of the committee -were
franklv amazed when the Mexicans
sought moral support by the United
States of a movement to bring about
peace in Mexico by another revolu
tion headed by Diaz.
The committee had no idea, x it is
said, of the purpose of their visit
niioT- tvum thpv wished to nresent in
formation about the situation in Mex
ico! Members of the committee flatly
stated that the United States could
not recognize any such movement.
Vilar and Ocon severely arraigned
Huerta as corrupt and Carranza and
Villa as bandits, and argued that Fe
lix Diaz had a host of loyal Mexican
citizens behind him who would rush
to his support to establish a real gov-
fernnient in Mexico.
I They want to get a promise, if pos
sible, from the American Govern
ment that it would uphold Diaz ana
recognize him if the counter-revolution
succeeded. Several members of
the committee characterized the prop
osition as preposterous.
The committee is taking a most ac
tive interest in the Mexican imbroglio
pnd intends to get all the information
possible so that it may be prepared
for afnv situation that may arise, es
pecially if the Administration should
determine upon any change of policy.

Former Parisian Gives Account of Ex
perience on the Mexican Border.
Charles Flinchem , a discharged
soldier, formerly a switchman in the
Louisville & Nasliville railroad yards
in this city, passed through Paris
Wednesday, en route to Hamilton, O.,
where he will spend several weeks.
Flinchem enlisted in the regular aamy
three years ago, and since the estab
lishment of the border patrol be
tween Mexico and the United States
has been stationed within a short dis
tance of El Paso, where he has been
doing duty.
Flinchem gave many interesting ac
counts of the incidents that occurred
during: his prolonged stay on the bor
der, and expressed the opinion that his guards at
intervention on the part of the united Juarez.
States in Mexico will be the only:
means of restoring pace to the repub
lic. According to Flinchem, soldiers of
the United States army are not al
lowed to cross the river from El Paso
into Juarez, but they frequently do so
in citizens' clothes and much informa
tion has been gained in this way re
garding the movements of the Mexi
can rebels wlio occupy the city. On
several occasions, he said, he had
seen the Mexican leader, General
"General Villa," he said, " is not a
man who would impress one as the
leader of an army. During his stay in
Juarez he wore no uniform other than
a light khaki suit with a broad brim
med hat. He was always heavily
armed, carrying a rifle with oeits or i
cartridges strung over each shoulder I
and heavy, revolvers. He bears a
strong resemblance to the American '
npgro rather than to the Mexican, and
it is fhe general opinion that he is of!
that blood. Among the. rebels hi '
