dent Taff s long fight for the measure,
but during the debate which led up

of the whole proposition.

claimed another victim today amon&
the patients in the hospital at Swin
burne Island.
The death of Demetrio Anagnoston,
aged 17, reported there, makes the to
tal deaths in quarantine nine. The boy

amination at Hoffman Island.
Fear Cholera la City.
The cholera guard today centered
attention on Bellvue hospital In the
heart of the city, where a case that
arouses, suspicion has been discovered
The suspect is Manuel Bermudes, a
Spaniard, who arrived here from Liv
erpool, vJuly 1, a fireman on a tramp
steamer originally from South Amer
ica. Anxiety Is Felt.
Some anxiety has been caused by the
fact that the man was taken sfck at
a sailor's boarding house before his
removal to the hospitaj.
The cholera death roll at Swin
burne is established at nine by today's
addition and no Jiew cases have been
reported among the other immigrants
at quarantine.
Expect Easier Time.
The health officers look for an
easier task in the future owing to
the fact that most of the steamers
from the Mediterranean will not take
passengers from Naples and Palermo
while the cholera epidemic lasts there.

Estevan Ramuz, alias Estevan Marti
nez; was arrested Friday afternoon by
deputey sheriffs and lodged in the
county jail on a warrant charging him
with horse theft.
It is alleged that about a month
ago Ramuz appropriated the horse of G.
B. Putnam, residing at 1201 North El
Paso street, and that when the animal
was found four hours later, the buggy
had been badly damaged and the horse
severely wounded through having col
lided with some object.
At thje time the horse was located it
is stated that the animal was in the
possession of Ramuz in the lower sec

Chihuahua, Mexico, July 22. A Mex
ican pickpocket was arrested on the in-,
coming train here two days ago and
was lodged In the city jail. The man
picked the pocket of E E Frls, of El
Paso, 'while he was On the train. The
latter nabbed him and turned him
over to the authorities, who ' expressed
the opinion, that he might be the man
who had been operating on the train
between Chihuahua and Juarez for a
Said to Have Junta'Here to
Get Recruits From Dis
gruntled Maderistis.
Magonistas, followers of Flores
Magon, self styled socialist, are having
regular meetings in El Paso and are
carrying on a consistent campaign of
organization for a counter revolution
In Mexico. The Magonistas meet on
Overland street, and more than 100
have been known to attend these
meetings. Prlsciliano Silva, one of th,
Silva brothers, who1 have taken a
prominent part in Mexican revolution
ary affairs, is said tov be at the head
of the socialistic junta here and (s
active In obtaining recruits to the
cause of the Magon followers. Enlist
ment blanks, .printed bills, giving the
propaganda of the new revolutionar
movement and other literature are be
ing distributed among these followers
of the Los Angeles socialistic leader
and an active field campaign against
the Madero government Is being
planned with the headquarters in El
Paso and the junta for the division of
the north in El Paso.
Maderistas Joining.
Many of the disgruntled Maderistas
are joining the Magonistas, both In
El Paso and. Juarez, it is said. The ex
pected fruits of the revolution which
were promised these men are not
forthcoming, they say, and they art.
now enlisting under the banners ot
the socialists, who claim that If eject
ed they will arrange for a purely so
cialistic form of government in Mex
ico. The 160 acres of land, a herd of
cattle and a horse that was expected
to be their share In the revolution
ary victory has not materialized, for
mer Maderistas say, and for this rea
son as "well as the desire'' for more
action in the field, they are joining
the Magonlsta forces that are assem
bling in the vicinity of Guadalupe and
along the Mexican border.
De Lara Reported Active.
Guiterrez De Lara, who is well
known in El Paso as a revolutionary
agitator and leader, is said to be ac
tively engaged In the formation of the
new revolutionary party. He was in
Juarez this "week, and it is said, held
secret conferences with the socialistic
leaders, and is assisting to organize
the northern districts for the new
cause, It Is claimed. The party is
known as the "Partldo Liberal Mex
icana," the Liberal party of Mexico.
Funds are being supplied by the Los
Angeles leaders. "Where the funds are
coming, from for the purchase of arms
and ammunition, and the carrying on
of the work of starting the revolution
is not definitely known. It is reported
that socialistic followers in the United
States have pledged themselves to do
nate $1 per week to the cause In or
der to have a socialistic form of gov
ernment established in Mexico. Guns
have been seized in the local quarters
of the Magonista junta and they are
being watched closely for violations of
the neutrality laws.
The band Hhat has been operating
in northern Chihuahua, and is now
said to be near Guadalupe, is a part of
this Magon crowd, it is believed, and
the purpose of the men is to obtain
followers in the same way that Ma
dero's revolutionary cause gained its
adherents.) The condition of unrest
which now exists In Mexico, particu
larly in the north, is being used hy
the socialists to gain recruits to their
Discredit Madero.
The Nmen who fought with Madero
are told that they may expect little
from their former leader and that he
has not kept his promises.
Seizing upon the unrest now exist
ing in Mexico, the Magonistas are pre
paring to make a desperate effort to
launch their new revolution and sweep
the country as Madero did with his
army, It Is said. But little real im
portance Is attached to the movement
by men who understand affairs in
Mexico, who say that the Magonistas
may harass the government and cause
it considerable trouble a'nd .embar
rassment at this time, but that the
socialist cause will not triumph in
Mexico' as did Madero's revolution.
Grinding Sulphur to Make
Fireworks "When Ex
plosion Occurs.
Nogales. Ariz., July 22. News from
Hermosillo is that an explosion oc
curred in the Carmen church in which
two boys were killed and four more
horriblj'' wounded.
The explosion was caused by friction
in a meat grinder, where chancoal, sul
phur and chloride of potash were being
ground for powder to make fireworks,
used by the priest of the parish in cele
brating saints' days and an ancient
custom. ,
The dead are Jose Cdronado and Gus
tava Meson.
Jose Coronado was the grinder and
was killed instantly. The wounded
are Canlos Lindell, Lorenzo Tapia, Fer

Greed and Graft Retard De
velopment of Alaska, For
mer President Thinks.
New York, N. Y July 22. Theodore
Roosevelt has an article on the de
velopment of Alaska in today's issue
of the Outlook. He declares two fac
tors to be responsible for retarding
progress in his article.
First, "Great capitalists who wished
to develop Alaska by making enormous
fortunes for themselves outside of and
in defiance of law," and the congress
men who "under pretense of hostility
to the corporations decline "to permit
the passage of legislation which will
enable them to do their work honestly
and to develop the coal fields with a
fair profit to themselves, while doing
justice to others."
Refers to Controller Bay.
Referring specifically to the Con
troller bay case, Mr. Roosevelt says:
"Controller bay, under actual condi
tions, offers the only chance for, at
any rate, very much the best chance
for a free outlet from the great Bering
river coal fields. It was the impera
tive duty of the government service to
keep this outlet free and not to dispose
of it to any individual or individuals.
Does Not Go Far Enough.
"Whether or not there was' impro
priety in the action which resulted in
the instant filing of claims by Mr.
Ryan and others, does not go to the
root of the matter. Public interest de
manded that this land should1 be kept
under public control, and that to pre
vent monopoly it should be permitted
only under such conditions as the pub
lic need requires. Remember always,
that such action would' not have hin
dered development; it would have fa
vored development for it would have
..enabled any honest corporation to come
In and do its part in developing the
'country without fear of being crowded
out by some other corporation which,
through unwise government action,
ipight obtain a monopolistic right."
Meeting Is Held at Bequest
of Vice Consul Emilio
Madero Warns the
Torreon, Mexico, July 22. The mem
bers of the German colony of Torreon,
assembled in the German club last
night in the discussion of general
conditions in response to the following
circular letter which was sent to the
majority of members yesterday after
noon by German vice consul J. Vermeh
ren: "I beg to submit to all subjects of
the German empire resident in this
consular district the following exact
copy of a -telegram which I have re
ceived from the German minister in
Mexico: '
" 'Advices have reached here of ex
pected trouble in your district. If, in
your opinion, this Is a fact send th&
women and children to some place of
safety. Should you not know of any
such send them to Mexico City , and
advise the men who should find them
selves in peril to do likewise.' "
Vice consul Vermehren added: "In
my conception there are no indications
of serious trouble In this district and
therefore no "immediate need for such
action as Is suggested in the abo've
telegram for the moment. But I con
sider it incumbent upon me to advlss
all Germans of this message, thus af
fording them an opportunity to act
according to their own discretion for
the safety oft themselves and their
families. I invite members of the Ger-
man colony who find it convenient and
art plnsp tn Torreon to call at th Ger
man club this evening to discuss the I
situation." '
Circulars are being distributed sign
ed by Emilio Madero, who will reach
here today. These are similar to those
circulated several days ago calling on
the Mexican people to respect foreign
rights and reiterating the necessity of
introducing .foreign methods, intelli
gence and "capital into all civilized
countries. Also declaring that any one
guilty of participating in the circula
tion of loose sheets condemning the
Spaniards or other foreigners shall f inrj

New York, N. Y., July 22. Thomas Franklin Manville, ' jr., son of the
millionaire head of the Asbestos trust, and his pretty bride, who was Miss
Florence Huber, of Williamsport, Pa., are not through getting 'married yet.
Just as soon as they have finished "getting settled" in their tiny apart-,

there. Tiiis will make the third time they have been married.
"You see. father hasn't yet shown the proper spirit tdward us since our

Mrs. Manville's appearance and manner, he is stubborn about 'our marriage
and. just like as not, he is devising a way to have our marriage annulled. VTe

he released Francisco I. Madero from his promise to appoint him minister
of war when Madero was elected president of Mexico.
It is believed Madero will Insist that Reyes accept the place in the cabi

profess to see danger in the appointment to a government position of one Trie

Cammorist Trial All in Mud
dle on Account of
Viterbo, Italy, July 22. The lawyers
for the defence have struck, and as a
consequence the Cammorists trial was
adjourned today until next
day to afford them time in which to
decide on their future attitude. Unless
some agreement is reached with the
court and the lawyers, before the ses
sions are resumed, it is -probable that
the trial will be definitely stopped and
later begun all over again.
The trouble began yesterday when
Capt. Fabroni, orfe .of the crown's best
witnesses, in defending himself and his
associates of the carabineers, de
nounced lawyer Lioy as a suborner of
perjury, and Lioy replied in an undig
nified manner. During the exchange
all of the other lawyers left the court
room and later sent a message to pres
ident Biachni saying that they could
not with dignity return t the court if
they were not assured of protection.
At the same time they said that they
were taking steps to persuade the of
