Benton, of Chihua hua, a subject of Great Britain, by a firing squad, upon order of Gen. Villa, at Juarez, has aroused a storm that may bring about a crisis in Mexican affairs, and in some quarters it is predicted that it may lead to inter Sention. Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, British ambas mador, conferred with Secretary Bryan Lbout it; President Wilson and his cabinet discussed it briefly, and the State Department ordered a thorough lavestigation by consul representa- m tves on the border. p Government officials say that for or the first time since the present revo- re ALtion began a year ago, the general ha warning from the United States gov ernment to Mexican factions to pro tect foreigners went unheeded, though there is every evidence to show that both the British ambassador and the state Department were advised too late of Benton's impending fate to in tercede specifically for him. The news shocked officials who had come to be lieved that General Villa fully realiz ed the Position of the American gov ernment in regard to the protection QU of foreigners in Mexico, particularly In the north of that country. S El Paso, Tex-, sgtorm of indigna 11 aok broke along the border when it lscame known that William S. Ben ton, a British subject and wealthy land holder in Mexico, had been executed by rebels in Juarez after he had made cen a protest to General Francisco Villa to I about alleged depredations of the Con- latE stitutionalists. A mass meeting was 10: beld and resolutions were adopted Bir censuring the State Department at her Washington for its alleged suppres- ten slon of the consular report of the Ben ton case and calling on Congress to mo demand from the Department of State abl a full record of alleged crimes and ' outrages against foreigners in Mexico. the The meeting came as the climax of of a day of excitement caused by news to of the death of Benton. car Mexico City.-The execution of Wil- why Hlam Benton, a British subject, by the eng Constitutionalists in Juarez, has re- eng vived the fear by government sup- fore porters that the United States will be rob forced by Great Britain to take some the action that easily might become in- and tervention* sac Since revolutionary congitions ac- tert mied serious proportions three years pon ago, there have been killed in various tair parts of the country about 150 Ameri- lool cane, including participants on both lest aides of the revohution.

TEL* LER OF COLORADO ANSWERS FINAL SUMMONS. * Western Newspaper Union News Servire. Denver, Col.-Henry Moore Teller, secretary of the interior in President Arthur's cabinet, and for more than 30 years United States senator from Colorado, died here at the home of his daughter, Mrs. G. E. Tyler. Sena, tor Teller was 84 years old, had been ill two years, during which he had many sinking spells, but from which he rallied. Two weeks ago his con dition became critical, and late Sunday night he sank into unconsciousness from which he never recovered. Henry M. Teller was one of the ori-l ginal "silver Republicans." Many of i his supporters contended he was the I first. He was so-called, at any rate, when he left the Republican national C convention at St. Louis in 1896 be. - cause he did not agree with the gold i standard plank of the platform. He ran again for the Senate in Colo- t the rado as an independent silver Repub ra licar, He was elected with 94 votes a ard out of 100, and after serving that term s resU the silver Republicans in Colorado g uand merged with the Democrats and Mr. a and Teller returned to the Senate-that b time as a Democrat. He served one a term as such and retired in 1903 to ls make a place for the late Senator Hughes, also of the same party. u In the late '70s Senator Teller be- b came a person of wide repute because 0o of his activttles in the United States tl Senate. His most ardent work was yr his opposition to the standardization 4c of gold in the monetary system of the nation, and it was in this endeavor that he made his famous '"sensation of the Senate" speech, in which he de clared: Pi the Republican party stands for the gold standard, the four silver-product Sing states will not hereafter be able to of rk act In co-operation with this (the Unit. - e ed States) or any other body." anc S Senator Teller ws active in his th at party life In the construction of the of Colorado Central jailroad, a pioneer e >b- road through the mountainous coun- tic is. try. He was preident of that rail- JU' ed way company after the road had been R lu. constructed. flu lac ar GEORGE W.
