How Yaqui Indians, raid ing the Yaqui valley "looted property of Americans, destroying what they could not carry away, murdered a number of -Mexicans after stealing their clothing, and committed other wanton depredations while Mexican troops stationed in the vicinity re mained inactive, is described in the first connected story of the raids de ceived here today. The Mexican troops were sent from . the state of Jalisco. Excepting three hours fight ing, the first day they did nothing against thei Yaquis, saying they had been sent to fight Villa troops, not Indians. i Five hundred Indians appeared along the Yaqui river, December 9, and fired into Mexican villages be tween Cocorit, and Esperanza. Mexi can troops repulsed them, but next day they appeared to the south in the heart of the American settlement "where they captured six Mexican laborers and gathered up quantities of com. After stripping the laborers of their clothes, they mutilated and murdered them. .-'. The large experimental . station owned and operated by trie Richard-; son Construction company was the next place attacked. ; The superin tendent and employes were forced to flee lor their lives. The warehouses were broken into and grains that could not be carried off were, mixed with poison. .The experimental sta tion plant was wrecked. December 11 seventy-five Indians went south and took possession of the Cajomo ranch, an American prop erty, where they emptied 2,500 sacks of rice paddy. . , The raiders left the valley that aft ernoon, driving with them 200 mules loaded with provisions, their winters supply' ' ' Appeals for help were sent out by the Richardson company to the larger Mexican garrisons a few miles away, but no. troops arrived untu yesterday long after the Indians had left. General . Dieguez last October as sured Admiral Winslow, now . here with the cruiser San Diego, that ade quate . protection would be afforded American settlers both at Los Mochis and in "the Yaqui valley. After lying peacefully on the out side gulf beach since February 21, 1910, the old Italian bark Oban Bay has been purchased, and it Is said, will be converted into a barge. Her purchaser is Capt. George J. Santa cruze, the same man who bought the old bark Henney, now the Hildegarde, and which has been fitted out for deep sea work. The Oban Bay, according to the Maritime Register, was built in Scot land in 1876, and is 215 feet in length, 34 feet wide, with a depth of 21 feet. She has registered tonnage f 1,068.

SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL Tallahassee, Dec 14. Hon. F. M. Hudson is out again after an attack of typhoid. He had been sick fori two or three weeks while campaign-! ing in West Florida. He returned to; Tallahassee from this trip, and al though still feeling quite ill, tnade a trip to his home at Miami in an au tomobile. Soon after reaching Miami, it was discovered that he nad typhoid, and he returned to Tallahassee at once to be with his family. When seen on the streets Monday, he was looking well, and stated that he is again in good shape."

It ap pears, however, that some belief ex ists that she may again go back on the register, for the last Issue of the Maritime Reelster announced her purchase by the Mobile shipowner named, and that efforts wil? be made to float the Oban Bay as soon as proper arrangements can be made. , The old bark Henney, which was purchased after remaining idly at an chor for , 'several years, has been "spruced up," and now sports an American registry, bearmg theVn'ame of Hildegarde. . f NEGRO PRISONERS SHOW A DECREASE i I I 1 i i I l l Nothing Will Give Greater Pleasure Than Moundsville, W. Va., Dec. 14. Ac cording to Warden M. 2. White of the state penitentiary here, the. number of negro prisoners In that institution has decreased 8 per cent sincethe en actment of prohibitory law and the number - of incoming . negro prisoners is decreasing in even greater propor tion.

Mr. Hudson was asked if he had anything to say In answer to this talk, and in reply made the following statement: "My alleged disqualification Is founded solely on the fact that Uie legislature of 1918, of which I was a member, enacted a law Increasing the salary of the governor. The Constitution (Article IH, Sec tion '5) provides that: "No senator or member of the house of representatives shall, during the time for which he was elected, be appointed or elected to any civil of fice under the constitution of this state that has been created, or the emoluments whereof have been in creased, during such time. "My last term in the senate began on the day of the general election in 1912. That the salary of the gov ernor was increased by the legisla ture during that term is admitted. So were the salaries of the comptroller and other cabinet officers and the rail road commissioners. "The remaining question then, is: Will the next governor be elected dur ing that same term ?; If not, there is nothing in the contention that I am disqualified. ?The next governor will be elected on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, 1916, and on that same day my term as senator will expire. Taking together Section 2 (as amended in 1898) and Section-1 of Article VII of the Constitution, it appears that the term of a senator elected in 1912 will expire 4at the election for senators and members of fh Tioiim of representatives' on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, 1916." The Phunmakers will hold an im portant meeting at the chamber of commerce tomorrow night at 70, one that promises to be the busiest In t long while. At this meeting final arrangemtnta will be made for the big midnight frolic this organisation will offer at the Keyser auditorium on New Year's eve, ("All night long"). Much dis cussion will be allowed on the subject of the parade, for at this meeting the bids will be opened to furnish the parade for this organization. Work will start on the floats in the next week , or two. The Seven new floats have arrived and will be installed at the new shed the Phunmakers have rented for this rear's decorations'. AS is already known, the Phunmakers will occupy entirely different quarters than the . Carnival Association, .the carnival shed being tmable to house both organizations. A large member ship is expected to be on hand for this meeting. .. . BT ASSOCIATED 'PRESS. New York, Dee. 14. Former Presi dent Taft was among the storm bound travelers on the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad last night.

But some folks go on for years "wondering what causes their nervousness, heart flutter, biliousness, headache and various other ailments. A frequent, though often unsuspected cause, is - coffee drinking. This; because coffee contains a pow erful, habit-forming drug, f caffeine, (about two and one half grains to the average cup) which, taken reg ularly, finally drifts many into ill health. Think it over. Of course, its your own affair. If you can go on drinking coffee and feel no evil effects, why bless your heart, keep it up- but there are hundreds of thousands who have quit coffee and now use 'POSTUM the pure food drink They know from the better health that follows, that freedom from the drug, caffeine, in coffee makes life brighter and happier. Postum is made of wheat and a bit of molasses has a rich, snappy flavour much like that of mild Java coffee, yet contains no caffeine or other harmful ele ment. ' . ' Postum comes in two forms. The original Postum Cereal requires boiling; Instant Postum is soluble. A level teaspoonful in a cup of boiling water makes a delicious drink instantly. Cost per cup is about the same for both kinds. . Personally the change to Postum is a little . thing to do. The benefit is great. There's a Sold by Grocers everywhere.
