Villa fol lowers have declared General Felipe Angeles provisional president of Mex ico and Francisco Villa, secretary of war, according to confidential informa tion received here today by lario W. Silvia, formerly a member of Villa's staff. Angeles has Issued a procla mation calling 'all to rally against the Carranza forces. - - ' The" proclaiming of General An-, geles as provisional president of.Mex-' Kico and Villa secretary of war comes as the ' climax to military operations considered by the Carranza goyern-i ! ment so serious- that it asked the United States for permission to move troops through Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, and is regarded here as reflecting a situation more- Serious in Mexico ; than : any since the Car ranza forces triumphed over Villa 3 years ago. ' Viewed in connection with Felicista. forces activities In southern Mexico, the s'Maation reguarded as full of possibilities. '-, President Carranza has been noti fied by the American government 'that permission for the passage of'Mexi can trops through American territory will be withheld for the;present.'"Mex ico had asked, to be permitted to move 2,000 men from Augua Prieta to Juarez for operation against Francisco Villa's forces. " . It was made clear at the state de partment however that in the even President Carranza could show tha there was greater necessity,, Tor th presence for the force. Of .2,000, men immediately . south of the. border at Juarez than at Agua Prieta in the territory where the Yaqui Indians are becoming troublesome the position of the United States government xnight be altered. . It was today officially that the de cision of the government was based upon - the belief that the , force which it was proposed to move through Ari zona, New Mexico and Texas would not be able to furnish prottection to American citizens in Northern Mexico because the revolutionists had cut the road between Juarez and Chihuahua.

PALMER CLAIMS 1920 VICTORY FOR DEMOCRATS Chicago, May 23. Attorney General Palmer told the democratic national committee at a banquet here tonight that if past achievement assured fu ture victory, the party could write to day the political history , of the. next decade, at least. The hard won victory of American arms will prove but niner triumDh if "We don't made certain, that out of it shall j come greater liberty, a Dexier Amer ica, and super peace. To these ends the democratic party proposes to con secrate itself." Palmer said. , Palmer, said he did not put victory in" the world war in the proud list of democratic achievements because it was the people's war in a' peculiar sense. "But. I do insist we shall share no more of the old slander that .the democratic party cannot be 'trusted to lead in a great war. After mentioning constructive and progressive legislation passed by the last democratic congress, he approved the president's conduct of the war and continued, Within twenty years our nation, nuder the republican admin istration, ; conducted a foreign war. The record of that party in that war is Still a matter current reading and public aiscusslon. We simply ask the people to draw their own conclu sion which party served its country best in war and in peace".

SERVICE DRIVE ISGIVENUFT AT PLANT OF SHIP COMPMY It is Believed When Totals Are All in and Tabulated Pensacola Will Be Well Over Quota. FLYING SQUADRON TO HELP OUT IN ZONE Pete L. Rollo Will Head Party Leaving Pensacola Today in Interest of Work Over West Florida. The final master stroke in the Sal vation . Army . Home Service drive was doubtless made yesterday noon so far as the local fight . is concerned when a brilliant band of workers descended upon- the plant of the Pensacola Ship building company and through the courtesy and with the cooperation of the management of that big enter prise,, enthused and inspired the work ers there and drew from them con tributions and pledges which will doubtless aggregate the anticipated $5,000 when all returns are checked up. The list of prominent workers in cluded Captain J. N. Sweeney, head of the plant; Capt. R. E.'Bergren,' of the local ?orps, Salvation Army; Rebeka Grosskopf, Clara B. Frenkle, Blanche Sheppard, W. G. Green, Mary L. Green, Ena Hoffman, Col. John L. Hughes. MdXjorle S. McEachern, Mrs. A. Lu Davis, N. L. Stevens, Mrs. A. Lu Stev ens, Miss Eva Stevens, Paul P. Stew art, Miss Etna Dodd, A. B. Haley, C. B. Hervey, Miss Rheba Crawford, F. W. Crenshaw, Mrs. ; C-B. Hervey, W. F. Amos, . B. S. Hancock, - and the ; Fort , Barrancas band of 25 pieces. - Th company- enjoyed . luncheon at the plant cafeteria, after which, through tho courtesy of the company officials, every department was thoroughly worked, every division giving generously. At the formal speech making and entertainment Capt. Sweeney acted as chairman and made the opening talk, introducing Col. Hughes and Mis3 Rheba Crawford. Miss Dodd, a hand some Salvationist and charming sing er, from New York, made a strong hit with her voice, and her duet rendi tion of "Salvation Lassie of Mine," to gether with one of the members of the band was the song sensation of the drive. Miss Crawford spoke; with her well known persuasiveness. Born in tha ranks of tho Salvation Army as the daughter of one of its brigadier gen erals she made the men of the ship plant feel that she spoke with the au thority of genuine knowledge She de clared that the army is doing no dif-. ferent work today than it has done for 50 years but that it took the war and the service in Foince to awaken the people to its merits. Miss Craw ford has the unassuming, but fascinat ing, personality that little bespeaks the brHliancy .she manifests on the public platform. ...'..-'Zone To Be Given Lift....' .;' It is now expected, that when all r turn3 from the local field due to lie received, are in and tabulated, it will ' be found that Pensacola has gone over te top. Special attention is now to i.-e given to the remainder of the coun ty and of the zone. P. Uj. Rollo has offered his services gratis to the Salvation Army, and leaves this morning for a trip over the Ane, accompanied by the Misses Craw- i ford and Dodd and Mr. and Mrs. Mc Intyre who together will be known as he "flying squadron." They will first stop at Chipley and help put Wash- ington county over the top; then they ,wiu go to Marianna, and assist th Lvery efficient chairman for Jackso.v county, Mrs,- C. L. Wilson; after that they will help in any county where help seems to be needed .trying t wind up by Monday or Tuesday, when it is hoped every county will have fin ished. . ,- Saturday Col. Hughes and the Fo-t -ranoas band will leave nine automobiles to help the town of Century go over, and Monday the sam he'p will.be given to the town of Mus cogee, k TARDIEU WARNS AGAINST SLANDER AND IDLE GOSSIP Beaune France.
