COSIEST Alleges that $500 Was Spent Illegally in Payment of Poll Taxes. CHARGES COMBINE BY RING AND ANTI-RING mi, i 4-h. -ii t-,-.xr nr irnn 1 Tflft ! voters were oaid.out or money which was Daid Into tile camDaien fund of either the rmir or anti ring organiza tlons. Judge F. G. Morris Friday morn ing filed his petition of contest in the nomination of judge X R. Harper, the nominee of the Democratic primaries for chief justice of the eighth court of civil appeals, in the 4 1st district court. The petitioner alleges that these voters voted in precincts Nos. 1. 2. 3, 4, 6, 7, lr 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20. The .plaintiff alleges that the poll taxes -in this in stance were paid for all Mexicans and negroes with the exception of some 50 or more educated Mexicans and ne groes. It is further alleged that the Mexicans and neigrbes voting in these precincts constituted all but about 300 Mexicans and negroes voting in El Paso county "Whether the money was actually handed to the tax collector of 1 Paso countj." the petition in the suit reads. ty each individual voter or was paid It him by some other person, it was pj.id oat of one or the other of said carpaitn funds; that the furnishing of Rjicj to pay poll taxes out of said i arraign funds was in some cases put t.. i-g re form of loans to poll tax paj e-s b agents' or tuose contributing the- monty. and in some instances was effected b placing said campaign funds in the hands of alleged money loaners who pretended to loan said money to voters, who in person, or through agents, paid said poll taxes to the tax collector." In other In stances the plaintiff alleges other de lves unknown to him ivere resorted t cover up the real transactions in v Ived. But whatever way the money was furnished in this instance to pay pell taxes, the plaintiff charges that it was Illegal and constituted a mis-ue-neanor, and the votes of those per sons should be disregarded. Charges $5000 Spent Illegally. The contestant alleges that more than $5000 was spent in the illegal pay ment of poll taxes during the' fall and winter of 1911 and until February 1, lfil2. and that over 300ir poll tax re ceipts were secured by payments in El Iaso county, and that at least 1700 of th votes received by judge Harper in these precincts were illegal. The con-te-tant alleges that the votes received ty him were prepared by the persons . Ung them, and who paid their poll tax with their own money. It is alleged that nearly all the bal 1 - f3 cu.st were cast in the precincts con t 'ted by Illiterate Mexicans and ne-g- es who had their tickets prepared t y them. The contestant alleges that tv re was fraud and Illegality in. mark ing those ballots.' lZighty-five per cent or more of the v "ers, the contestant alleges, who ; fd mre illiterate Mexicans and ne c es who did not mark their own bal- , .nd could not read their ballots L, LZTi: l nt n? 1 Seventy per cent of i w hen marked. thpse voters it was alleged were 11- 1 tc rte Mexicans who had their ballots rva ked and did not know how they vt, p marked. The legal voters, the c rtcstant sas, cannot be compelled t- say for whom they voted, and the voters who say their tickets were narked for them do not know that they v. re marked for judge Harper. Tho e'ei-tlon judges, it is averred, could not i ntify the ballots marked by them nd separate them from the ballots n ich were prepared by the voter him self "Because of the large number of bal lots which contestant wi'l show," the petition reads, "were illegally and er r neouslj marked for James It. Harper, without any request of the voter that his ballot should be so marked, and were in many instances not in fact de posited as a ballot by the voter, and because of the Impossibility of purging thost several precincts of said il legal ballots, which illegal ballots were wholly cast for oontcstee, con testant pravs that the entire vote re turned from said precincts for said Harper be disregarded in the, trial and de sion of this court." The contestant requests that only t'"-,se ballots -which were prepared by the voter himself, or at his request, be ci anted. It Is further alleged that the illegal t.3 llots were cast by Illiterate Mexicans who did not understand, the English language and were marked for judge Harper in pursuance to a conspiracy entered into by judge Harper and the r'ng. "who" the petition says, "some times call themselves the 'Regular rJemocrats and who treat all other Democrats as irregular, including con testant" , .. Three dajs before the primaries, the contestant alleges, judge Harper and the Ting conspired to place the name of the Judge as chief justice for the eighth court of civil appeals upon a guide ballot which was issued and cir culated. The election officers for the ring, it was alleged, were instructed to ma'k the ballots for all of those ap pearing with the guide tickets and who desired to vote the ring ticket for judge Harper This, the contestant alleges, the election officers carried out be cause they deemed it their duty. Alleges Agreement by Factions. The contestant alleges that by rea son of a prior agreement between the ring and anti ring, it had been ar ranged through the Democratic execu tive committee to have the election judges and officers divided equally be tween the two factions. The contestant says that he was not a member of cither f-ction and had no representa tion in the officers of the election. The contestant alleges that the ticket printed and circulated by the ring with the names of the candidates did not contain the name of any candidate for state or district offices above that of district judge, excepting a candidate for governor. It Is alleged that the nam" of judge Harper did not appear in the list of candidates which had been posted at the ring headquarters. The guide ticket -which the contest- i WOMAN AND HER SIX CHILDREN DIE IN FIRE Rnthcrford, X. J., Ang. 30. Mrs. Erailio De Baro and six of her seven children, ranging from five months to 12 years of age, met death early to day In a fire which destroyed their home. De Baro, the husband and father, and the seventh child, n boy of 13, escaped by jumping: from n second story vrlndow. De Baro and his family made their home on the second floor of a frame house. Mrs. De Baro and the six younger children slept In n rear room and the father and the oldest boy in the front. De Baro and the boy tried to rescue the woman .and children, but a wall of 1 lame checked them. With their night clothes blazing they jumped from the window. Five bodies were found in a heap near the center of the building. The woman, with the baby in her arms, lay near the window. Firemen believe a spark from a passing locomotive may have started the fire Republican Leader of New Mexico Is Pound Drowned in Sheep Vat. , COULD HAVE BEEN A U. S. SENATOR Albuaueroue. r. jh.. auk. ju. aoio- i mon Luna, millionaire banker and sheep i grower, for 16 years KepuDiican na- tional committee man for New .fexico. and who refused to accept election to tho United States senate at hte hands of the first state legislature, met a tragic death at Horse Springs, Socorro county, 7G miles from Magdaiena, at an early hour today, when -he fell into a vat containing thousands of gallons of sheep dip, after being attacked with heart failure. Becoming ill during the night, it is supposed Mr. Luna arose and went from his room to the dipping vat, a few yards away from .he ranch house. It is presumed he attempted to get a drink of water- from a.fauoet near the vat. and, being stricken with heart failure, tumbled into the poisonous mixture of lime, sulphur, tobacco and water. At 4 oclock this morning camp em ployes saw a body floating In the vat. Tne sKin was peeled rrom tne face ana hands because of the boiling water which had been turned Into the vat at 1 oclock this morning. The body was not recognized until one of the Mexican herders declared that it was that of Mr. Luna. The men at once hastened to the room where Mr. Luna slept and discovered that his bed, vhich had been occupied, was empty. The body was clad in a union suit of underclothing when found. Solomon Luna, who was 54 years of age, represented New Mexico in the Re publican national committee 16 years, being one of the oldest members, in point of service, on the committee. He was prominent in business and politics, and -was probably the best known man, as well as the wealthiest in New Mex ico. He leaves a wife but no children. The body will be brought to Albuquer que on a special tram tomorrow morn ing. Solomon Luna had been a power in the political and business life of New Mexico for years and could have been governor or at least he could have had the Republican nomination for govern or at the last election if he had cared to take It. He could also have been -one of the first United States senators, it is generally believed, if he had cared to enter the race. Maximillian Luna, a son of SoL Luna, was a lieutenant In the Roosevelt Rough Riders in the Spanish-American war and later served in the Philippines on the staff of Maj. Gen. Lawton and met his death while trying to cross a swollen stream in Luzon Island during the campaign against Aguirtaldo. .nt said thfe ringMssued-was printedn' English and the heading was: How to Vote for the Ring" "If you want to vote the ring scratch your ballot like this." The contestant alleges that his name and that of judge Harper ap- peared on the guide ticket with a line through hi name. The returns from tne contested pre cincts show a total of 1995 votes cast for judge Harper, and 867 for judge Morris. Following the filing of the petition of contest before judge A. M Walthall, a date for the hearing -will be set some time in term time of the district court, judge Harpr as contestee will then be entitled to five days' notice from that date.

The 750 marines who sailed from the Phila delphia navy yard last week for Nic aragua are due at Colon tomorrow. They will be transported across the isthmus of Panama on a special train and embarked on the big armored cruiser California, due at Panama to night or tomorrow morning. The California is to leave Panama immediately, perhaps touching at San Juan Del Sur, to reinforce a small marine contingent left at that place by the cruiser Denver, to make sure that the important cable station is not closed by the rebels. All messages from the American legaiOn at Managua and the American naval commanders at Corlnto must come to San Juan Del Sur in order to reach the cable. "Will Reach Corlnto Monday. The California should reach Corlnto Monday night, if she covers the 650 miles at top speed. Rear Admiral Southerland has already announced his purpose of sending to Managua at least 500 of the marines she carries and the remainder probably will be used to patrol the 72 miles of railroad connecting the capital with the sea. These reinforcements will bring the total American strength in Nicaragua up to more than 2000 men ashore and about 1000 bluejackets on ships in the coastal -waters on both sides of the countrj. The naval commanders are satisfied that this force will meet present needs, but should the rebels offer more formidable resistance than is expected to the execution of policy of protection to American lives and property, then the Tenth infantry, held in light marching order on the isthmus since president Taft revoked the order sending It Into Nicaragua, probably will be moved after all. It Is believed the rebels will at tempt to stop the movement of Ameri can forces along the "-wrecked railroad. The greatest obstruction is expected to be at Leon, which seems to be'the seat of rebel operations. Fear for Safety of Americans. One cause of great concern to the state department is the condition of about 125 Americans at Matagalpa, in the interior of 'tlie republic. Com munication to thatsqction is difficult. The last report irom-hem told q criti cal conditions. TjJlgnly-w'ay'dacom-munleatlon-wifh the American .-nlanfcrs Is bycourleiC"' " ' V-' ;v it probably will be necessary for admiral Southerland to dispatch a re lief expedition to Matagalpa. The ! town Is very difficult of access. The ! marines or bluejackets, selected for the j lake boats at Managua, travel 25 miles by water to Momotombo, follow a trail 50 miles up the river to Choco yos and thence go to Matagalpa. British Interests are centered large ly In mines, one large mine property near Matagalpa having recently been acquired by an Austrian mining syndi cate. About 125 Americans are believed to reside on coffee plantations and to work in mines in that neighborhood. MORE MARINES ARE SENT TO MANAGUA Washington. D. C. Aug 30. Rear admiral Sutherland, commanderinchief of the Pacific fleet. Is now en supreme command of the situation in Nicaragua. ! He has deployed forces along the rail way between Oriente and Managua and he reported to the navy department that he intends to keep railway com munication open between the capital and the seaport. vThe general tone of his two tele grams to the navy department today is that the situation is less alarming. A force of marines, he says, is neces sary at Leon and at other places along the railway line. They will aggregate about 5000 bluejackets and marines, under captain Terhune. The admiral will send 500 marines to Managua at once. Re-opening by the American marines even In a temporary way of rail and telegraphic communication between Managua and the port of Corinto was followed by the receipt of cablegrams in tho state and navy departments from that hotbed of trouble. One de scribed how captain Terhune, of the gunboat Annapolis, persuaded the in surgents to keep out of Corinto by confronting them with two six-pound cannon. He perched them on the Co rlnto side of the bridge connecting Co rinto with the mainland and then cut the bridge. This, he said, made it im possible for the rebels to enter. FOOD IS SCARCE IN THE REBEL ZONE Managua. Nicaragua, Aug. r3 (De layed in transmission). Food is be coming scarcer here daily and also in several of the cities in the hands of the revolutionaries. At Granada and Masaya, which are held by the rebels, the population is almost deprived of provisions. Reports have come In of engagements in the vicinity of Granada between the government troops and the Insurgents, but no details of the fighting have been obtainable MARINES ESCAPE FROM REBEL FIRE Bluefields, Nicaragua, Aug. 30. Of ficial information has been received here that the 50 marines, fired on Sun day by rebels, while repairing the rail road between Managua and Leon, es caped without injury. Though forced temporarily to retreat they resumed and completed their work Sunday and then returned safely to Managua. MARINES ARRIVE AT CRISTOBAL Colon, Panama, Aug. 20.

Overjoyed at having made their escapo from the rebels, who would have killed them. F. M. Curtis, manager, and Bert Cun ninghom, foreman of Mlna El Oro, three miles west of San Geronimo mine and about 120 miles south of Nogales, have arrived in Douglas from Nacozari. They made their way to that camp following a brush with the rebels under Campa, who attempted to kill Cunningham, who in turn killed two, wounded a third and then, with Curtis, took to the hills. , "The main body of Campa's men passed through our camp. They treated us considerately, although they took what they wanted," said Mr. Curtis. "About 20 rebels lingered In the camp after the main body had gone. Four of them came to where Cunningham and I were and demanded money. I refused them. Then they safd: " We'll take you along and hold you for ransom. We will leave you be hind, they said to Cunningham. They fired at him, making it evident that by leaving him behind they meant as a corpse. Cunningham happens to be an old Indian fighter and a crack shot. He returned the fire at once and killed two. I know that he crippled another one badly. Run Into Federals. "We mounted our horses and rode away to the east, being blocked by the rebel forces to the -north and -west from going that way. On Saturday morning we ran into a force of !0 federals who were in camp at San Ra fael, six miles south of Opodepe. Dur ing the day about 30 mounted rebels attacked us. The fire was returned by tho federals. The federals lost two killed and three wounded. At least half of the rebel force was extermi nated. T know this for as soon as the rebels were routed the federals began killing the wounded. Some may have escaped by crawling Into the thick un derbrush, but not many. "This went on for about 15 minutes and then news came that 400 rebel in fantry was closing in on the federals. Mr. Cunningham and I made our es cape and continued riding east. This was our last fight. We passed close to one body of rebels, of unknown num bers, holding Ifonamachi. We did not stop to ascertain details but Baine straight through.

They are making no distinction between Mexi cans and foreigners now that I can see," baid he. Xo Protection for Americans. The Mexican federals are refusing to protect American citizens or their property in Sonora. This was the statement of H. C Beauchamp, general manager of the Transvaal Copper Min ing company, and other mining men now in this city. Application was made to federal officials who refused outright to take any steps whatever. Protection was asked for El Tigrc from Lieut. Col. Begne, commander of the Agua Prieta garrison. The request was met by a flat refusal to send a single man to that camp, which is now being besieged by 300 rebels. The Transvaal company, which was looted on August 23, had its store looted, several thousand dollars in cash stolen and a large quantity of sup plies of every kind. The loss is placed by Mr. Beauchamp at ?12,000, gold. Mr. Curtis, the storekeeper, was held for ransom which had to be paid before he was allowed to accompany Beau champ to the line. They came out in the working clothes they had on. They were robbed of all other clothing, even to underwear and socks. The Archipeligo mine, belonging to the Minneapolis Copper company, has also been looted. Wiliam Kemp, the manager of this company is now In the city, being another arrival from the south. "Gie Americans Hell." C. R. Hotchkiss, of the San Jose mine, arrived here havinng also been robbed by the rebels. They took $330 in cash and all the supplies in the camp. They told him that they were acting under direct orders of Orozco "to give all the Americans hell." Had It not been for the fact that he had $100 concealed In an old shoe, Hotchkiss would have been unable to get out. The rebel forces are commanded by Escobosa and Alatore, who have been -.cting independently in the Mi-t-izuiia, rumpss and Sonoia rlvei dit.'sots. These have now joined forces and are now reported marching upon Cumpas, 45 miles south of Nacozari. The ei;t size of their force is not known al though reported to be in the neighbor hood of 40.. The town of Bonamachl, on the So nora river, has already fallen. The same atrocities reported from otner towns, are said to have been perpe trated there. Murder and rapine fol lowed its surrender.

It is believed here to be the beginning of a general mobilization of troops on the border. All Mexican federal troops have been ) removed fromCananea and Naco to Nogales, "SoliJ:. giving a force of only three or ffljlr hundred. " Officials o,f the Cananea Consolidated Copper cbnjpany have reported that they will traj.a'bre to protect that camp. They hayas'lmported sufficient arms and ammunition to be able to do with out federal 'aTd. Wm. Kemp, of Tucson, general man ager of the.

The leader with i 30 mounted rebels took the camp by j surprise late in tne artcrnoon or the 2ist and. looted the store and took the horses, arms, and ammunition of the Americans. They pointed their guns at Kemp. Wm. Haynes, and Emmett Hanks, all Americans, and threatened to kill them. They did this three times. Escobpsa told Kemp he was acting under orders from Orozco, to "give Americans all the hell you can." Refugees continue to come in num bers from the south. Today's train was loaded.
