Texas Maneuvers
Garter Prepares To Move-Next Four Days Will Witness
Evacuation Of Fort Sam Houston-Liraantour Look
ed Upon As Man Of The Hour In Mexico And Much
Is Expected From Meeting With Diaz Eoglisb
Capitalist Says Revolt Not Worth Mentioning
San Antonio, March 20. This
taornlng witnessed tho first move
ment toward the border of tho army
of 16,000 men of all branches of tho
service mobilized here under com
mand of General William H. Carter.
They will be followed In a short
Umo by every detachment of
vcry branch of the divisional
camp at Fort Sam Houston. It be
came positively known tbat the com
mander of tbe army doeB not expect
to "be'Jhora"hlnfself or that his troops
will be hero four days hence.
It Is known where those who first
left San Antonio were going. They
re tbe men of one squadron ot the
eleventh cavalry, who aro going over
the Southern Pacific lines to the west
In the direction of El Paso. Where
the rest of the army Is to bo sent Is
not known, except to the small group
of officers constituting General Car
ter's personal staff. Tbero' Is a
strong belief among the colonels of
regiments and their respective staffs
that the divisional army Is bound for
the border along tho Ttio Grande and
vest along the Arizona line, where
the chief streams of lnsurrecto sup
port are carrying munitions of war
across the line.
It may be stated positively that
the cavalry squadron Is to bo rushed
out to the westward to meet a re
markable contingency. The officers of
the Southern Pacific railroad have
urged tho war department in Wash
ington to give protection to their
treat and expensive bridge over thf
Fecos river, near the town of Via
duct, In southwestern Texas, nnd less
than 10 miles from the boundary of
the Mexican state of Coahullo. With
in the last week the Insurgent bands
that have been operating along the
American border east of the Mexican
town of Presidio del Norte havo been
known to have crossed into Texas
more than once. A week ago a brush
between insurectos and federals,
which occurred partly on American
oil, was reported from El Paso.
Railroad Asks Protection.
The railroad people havo notified
the war department that they fear
some contingency, whether the pass
lag of American troops over their
lines or an attempt of tho insurrec
tea to embarrass the Diaz govern
went by committing depredations on
American property, will lead to the
destruction of the great steel bridge.
They could not replace the structure,
which springs 225 abovo the Pecos
river, within the year, so the South
ern Pacific people have told tbo de
partment. There Is another reason for the
sending of tbe Eleventh cavalry
squadron out ahead of the army. Re
cent reports have said that the Insur
rectos have established a base at
Presidio del Norte, Just across the
Sio Grande from tho American town
at El Oro, and that through this
Mint they have been receiving their
largest shipments ot arms and muni
tions. Marfa, Tex., on the Southern
Pacific line, about 60 miles north of
fresldlo del Norte, has been one of
the chief depots for the receiving ot
contraband for secret shipment
across the border to the lnsurrecto
ae over tho river, and Del Rio, 170
miles west of San Antonio, has been
another distributing point.
Aa to tho general movement of all
the troops at the division camp at
Fort Sam Houston, tho utmost se-
a crecy is maintained, ana utue do-
IAm the Indubitable fast that Gen
Show Signs Of Be-
eral Carter expects his command to
move sometime, within the next four
days can be learned. Something that
the commanding general said in con
versation with a vistor at the camp
Is the best proof of his preparedness
to move. This was his remark:
"I will get my men out of here on
one and a half hours' notice when
the order comes. We will simply
move out of camp immediately, leav
ing all tents standing and with a
handful of beans and some hardtack
in our pockets.
, .Nothing will -go --but 4Whatevery
man carries on his back. Heavy im
pediments can be left behind, and
with one day's rations with us we
are prepared to pick up our commis
sary at different points until we ar
rive at our destination."
Pearson Discusses Situation.
Dr. P. S. Pearson of London, who
represents the Pearson Interests In
Mexico, which Include Investments -of
English, Canadian, French and
Belgian capital amounting to $125,
000$00, arrived here from San Fran
cisco and El Paso. In discussing the
Mexican situation Mr. Pearson said:
"There is not enough of a revolt
down there to demand intervention,
and certainly not enough of & revo
lutionary government to merit recog
nition. I don't think anybody can
figure out why this army mobiliza
tion and Its inherent threat Is or
dered." He emphatically doed that
the Pearson interests had asked the
United States to intervene.
Word that came from Mexico City
Indicated that the preparation for an
Instant Movement may have bearing
on tho political squabble in Dlai'a
capital, -mi English mining engineer
and financier from Mexico City
named Pursell, who passed through
San Antonio, said that upon the
events of the days immediately fol
lowing Llmantour's arrival In Mexico
City would depend the solution or
the complication of tho whale situa
tion across the line.
"Limantour is Indeed the man of
the hour down hero," Mr. Pursell
said, "for he brings with him tho
possible solution of all the difficul
ties. It now 1103 between him and
Diaz as to whether Mexico is to pas3
through this crisis or not. All Mex
ico knows that Llmantour was in
conference with the Madero family
In New York, whom ho used to serve
as legal counsellor; that ho brings
with him from them the irreducible
minimum on which Francisco Ma
dero and bis insurrectos will con
clude a peace, and that this demand
Is for great reforms, Including a fair
election and a real representative
"Tbero is great doubt about Diaz's
accenting these termr. He Is a very
stubborn man and he will not eat
humblo plo easily. But Mexico ex
pects him to accept them, at least to
treat with the Insurrectos as If they
had a fair grievance. If ho does not,
the revolution will surely gain In
violence and strength, and there will
be a very grave situation for Diaz
to face."
Mr. Pursell added that recently the
people had been as prone to blame
their grievances on Diaz's ministers
as upon the president himself, but
that of lato there had been a grow
ing manifestation of nnger against
Diaz. He confirmed tho report ot the
stoning of Diaz's palace, as reported.
in theso dispatches, saying that sev
eral had been arrested as a result ot
the affair, but that it had no great
political significance except as an in-

JOSE YVES LIMANTOUIt, the minister of finance for the republic of
Mexico, Is a man of varied attainments and ot much strength of char
acter. He comes of an old and wealthy Mexican family and has been
President Diaz's financial manager for nearly twenty years. His father
nnd Diaz were long time friends, and as a boy Limantour knew and admired
Diaz. He did not enter tbe government service until he was thirty-five he
Is fifty-seven now though he had previously been nn alderman of the City
of Mexico and had been In the Mexican congress. After serving for a time as
assistant minister Tt finance, really doing the work of bis superior, who "had
been instructed to give the younger man a chance to show his nfttal, he be
came tho actual financial head of the nation and set resolutely "about solving
Its monetary problems. Within two years he had ended the deficit that had
been a yearly problem In Mexico.- Within a few years he had raised the cjedit
of the nation and had gained for It the confidence nnd respect of financiers
all over tbe globe. Eight years ago It was reported that President Diaz was
preparing to retire nnd would make Limantour his successor. It was said
tbat the plan was for Diaz to stand behind his successor until the country
was reconciled to the change and the possibility of a revolution was averted.
For some reason this plan was not carried out Minister Limantour Is a great
lover of flowers and is a practical horticulturist. He Is also a lover of music
and is a skilled performer on the piano. He Is affable, but dignified, and speaks
English perfectly and without the gestures common with Latin Americans.

and Senor Limantour personally expressed his approval of the likeness.
