States called on" state militia to as
sist the regular forces in an interna
tional crisis. The militia in Texas,
Arizona and New Mexico toere or
dered out.

call for action by congress at this
time since they will be used only for
patrol duty along the border.
The militia organizations of these
three states ^comprise 5,360 officers
and men, fully equipped and armed.
Orders also were issued for four
regiments of regular Infantry to pro
ceed to the border at once from

Decision to call out the militia, fol
lowed a conference between Presi
dent Wilson and Secretary Baker af
ter the latter has received two long
code messages from General Funston.
In announcing the decision. Secretary
Baker declared the step constituted
no change in the policy of the United
States toward the southern republic.
At the same time the announce
ment was being Issued, Mexican Am
bassador Arredondo was urging upon
Secretary Lansing the necessity for
strengthening the United States bor
der patrol, on the ground that only
by this step could further border raids
be prevented at some points. He told
Lansing the Glenn Springs raid was
planned and carried out from this
side of the border and tTiat several
other towns have been selected as ob
jects of future raids. I. Viilareal,
Mexican agitator, Arredondo told
Lansing, was leader of this move
ment.

AUSTIN, Texas. May 9.—President
Wilson's order calling out the Texas
national guard for border patrol duty,
was received at the capitol today.
Governor Ferguson was out of the

jutant General Hutchings, following
receipt of the president's order, dis
banded the infantry officers' training
camp, directing the men to go to
their homes and hold themselves in
readiness for service. The entire
guard was expected to be called out
late today. The force consists
from 3,000 to 4,000 men, Infantry,
cavalry, field artillery and a field
hospital corps.
General Hutchings today suggestel
that to save time, the troops might
not mobilize, but likely will go di
rect to the border.
Swarmed to Armory.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas, May 9.—
Militia men dropped their work in
San Antonio today and swarmed to
the armory, offering their services for
•border duty. The armory was a scene
of feverish activity as the state
diers brought out their equipment
and prepared for mobilization. Prep
arations for such a call have been in
progress for, weeks.

CHICAGO, May 9.—Wheat-^Wheat
followed the usual oourse after a gov
ernment report, being easy early and
advancing later on short covering.
Prices by mid-day were well above
those of last night. The buying today
was Induced by further crop reports
from Nebraska and the southwest
claiming much damage from insects
and dry weather. The forecast for
possible showers over the dry dis
trict brought out some selling orders
early. The seaboard reported some
demand for wheat, but gave out no
figures. Winnipeg, however, claimed
that exporters were liberal buyers of
their May delivery. Premiums for
the spring wheat were higher, No.
northern selling at 9 cents ovei the
May.
Corn—Corn was easy most of the
day. Professionals pressed the sell
in side. The feature was fairly liber
al country offerings, and the rapid
progress that is being made in the
Planting of a large acreage. A good
deal was made by- the bears on the
report that Argentine had worked
corn to come to New York. But this
was later construed as bullish, be
cause the corn is sold to Cuban ports
at fair prices and is to be reshipped
from New York. This is made neces
sary by lack of freights from Argen
tine direct to Liverpool.
Oats—Oats were easy early In the
day but reacted when wheat showed
strength and by mid-day trading was
around yesterday's levels of prices,
Crop reports were generally favorable
although some complaints were being
received from the southwest.
Grain Review.
