Tho direct primary election law question in tho G9th general assembly tonight presented tho most compli-eate-d situation it has yet adopted. The house, after weeks of dodging on the bill, introduced by Hep. John U. Jones, providing for state-wide pri mary elections, party organization of ficers to bo elected as well as nomina tions made for all candidates for of fice, passed the measure by a vote of f.5 to 30 lato Friday afternoor. The democratic party made a direct ap peal to tho republicans to join it on the voto and succeeded in getting seven of the republicans and the bull mooscr, Hep. John W. Judkins of Wayne county, to do so. The remain ing republicans voted against the measure. The democratic majority voted solidly for tho bill after slow ing speeches thereon were made by many democratic representative. Only two democrats, Saro and Pranaman, the floor leader, intimated that they did not think tho principles of the pri mary election law would be safe. These, however, declared they would voto for tho measure in order to re deem, the party platform pledge. To unbiased viewers of the entire primary situation tonight it seemed that tho voto of tho senate the day before to kill tho Pinear bill exactly identical to the Jones bill, hrj? "eased up" on the members of the house to a Very appreciable degree. Only a day before the house passed the bill with a whoop, it Feerned almost certain that tho measure would be killed or at least would find but few of the democrats voting for it, although they had placed it in their party platform and tho national heads of the party had used every effort to insure that the present legislature lived up to the party platform pledge, it is known, however, that many of the democratic houe members doubted tho advisabil ity of passing Mich a law.

The great guns boomed. Tho waters in the fountains began to flow. The engines in the palace of machinery began to move. Tho people with bared heads sang the "tar Spangled Banner." Cheers and tears and laugh ter and exultation. It came true flawlessly. There was no hitch in the ceremonies. From the dawn, when San Francisco was awakened by a volume and variety of noise such as never was imagined be fore, until late in the evening when the heavens were lit with the great play of lights from the exposition's wizards of illumination, the program of the opening day was carried out as it was planned in the minds of the fair's builders. Horns, sirens, be!K w histles, shout?, telephones, everything that ever wa.s invented to make noise, began jang ling and shrieking at 0 o'clock this morning. Uy 0:0 there was hardly a house that did not have a head or two sticking out the windows and grinning. The great day had come. The time of realization was at hand. San Francisco was ready to show the world the achievement of years work, the proof of energy and imagination and lighting ability. Van Xess av.. flaming in exposition colors and American flags, wis the scene of a great gathering long be fore S o'clock. P.y o'clock the great est crowd in the city's history had as sembled there to march on the world's fair. It was a parade of the people, a triumphal march.

Pres't Wilson prised the button. The act released the magic of elec trical energy, which, transmitted in stantaneously to San Francisco, sent leaping into the sun-drenched air un der the blue sky the water of all the fountain in the southern region of the exposition, and discharged a bat ttty of Jl guns, anil opened the doors ami s. t working all the machinery in nuo-hinery palace. The Panama-Pa' ifV international exposition was otlicially open. ACCUSE UNO DF DESERTING POSTS Policemen Ray Bowman and A. M. Kline Will Be Given Hear ings Monday Patrol is Called Out.

The money was sup posed to be for the poor. The depart ment received news of the affair Sat urday morning and at once sent in structions to its agents to make the protest. According to the dispatch received by Sec'y Pryan, the priests were summoned to the palace and were there made prisoners. Tho only foreigners mentioned in the dispatch were an American and a Pritlsh priest, but neither of them was mo lested. The aetion of Gen. Obregon came as a surprise to the otlicials of the state department. Several days ago they receiveel word that Obregon in tended to levy a special tax on Cath olic church property, but there was no intimation that he would imprison the priests if his demands were not complied with. The constitutionalist agency here has a dispatch from Earedo in which the following appears: A telegram received here from Ciudnd Victoria confirms the news that Gens. Olivio and Fortunate.

Having broken virtually all opposition in western Mecico by his recent defeat of Gen. Miguel Diegucz's army and the cap ture of Guadalajara from the consti tutionalists, Gen. Villa is preparing for what he thinks will be the final step in his campaign against Carran za the taking of Tampico, Vera Cruz and ultimately Mexico City. From this city he will go north soon to assume active charge of the operations against Tampico, the cen ter of the great oil fields of Mexico. Already his followers have approach ed within IS miles of Tampico, though no serious lighting has oc curred. Kvery resource of Villa's military power will be brought to bear in the attack on Tampico which the north ern leader expects to capture without much difficulty. An army of more than 50,000 men and 200 guns will be employed. The Carranza garrison there numbers about 20,000 ami the city is well fortified. Vera Cruz Will l? Soxt. When the port falls Villa intends to lead his army on transports and proceed to Vera Cruz, from which city he expects to drive the Carranza armies to Mexico City.

' Villa is positive that Zapata's army is loyal to him and will remain .o. He expects Zapata to hold the Car ranza forces in Mexico City from the south and west while h? closes in on them from the north and east. A series of small engagements have occurred In the vicinity of Guadala jara and in southern Coahuila in which Villa, according to advices re eeived at military headquarters, has . been generally successful.

LATTICES TflnS German Decree Has Been in Ef fect Three Days British Steamer Torpedoed and Nor wegian Vessel Strikes Mine. o D f DEO flR li NOTE Expected That Formal Reply Will Be Sent Although Sev eral of the Cabinet Hold This is Not Necessary. ALLIED FLEET RENEWS DARDANELLES ATTACK Trying to Force a Passage for Russian Ships Success Will Bring Them to the Gates of Constantinople. WASHINGTON, Feb. 'JO. A dif.'.-r-ence of ejpinion has developed in the cabinet on the question whether the United States should rVply to Ger many's note on the war zone. Some of the members of the labinet take the position that no further com munication on the subject from the United States is necessary; that this government has expressed its position clearly; that it has said it will hold Germany te "strict accountability'' if she sinks an American vessel under the new method of warfare she is putting into effect, and that nothing remains to be explained. Other members favor making a re- nit itlwtnilnr. 4 lin f ll.-k TT-iitia J t i f i . c t 11 imov. utiiiQ uiai 1111; iioivj ruin .1 will not accept in any degree the dis claimer of responsibility which Ger many intimated in her note to this government. To all appearances the arguments of the members of the cabinet who favor this plan outweigh those of the others, and it is believed a formal re ply will be. sent. It is understood that Counsellor Pausing is now engaged in preparing the reply. Those who favor letting the matter stand where it is at present take the position that to attempt to discuss the reasons which Germany has given for her action would be to concede these reasons to be plausible, and this gov ernment has no intention of conced ing anything of the sort. The claim of the United States is that it has cer tain rights under international law. The international law which existed a few months ago before the war began is the law which exists now. It would be a poor kind of law in the opinion of high otlicials which changed during the trial of a cas' and this would be the situation if Germany's contention'1 were to be ad mitted now. Count von Pernstorff, the German ambassador, called at the state de partment and conferred with Sec'y Pry an and Counsellor Pansing. The ambassador said afterward he desired io emphasize the view of the German government that sho could not be held responsible should any harm come to an American vessel threuigh the operation of her war zone decree. Germany's submarine campaign, he said, would be made necessary by Kngland's failure to observe the rules of international war. The otficial texts of Germany's re ply to the American note reiiarding her war zone and of the Pritish notes! on the use of the American flag and tho seizure of the Wilhelmina cargo were received at the state department today. of the German note was tho same as 1 ianv the copy transmitted to this country by the press associations several days ago.
