ticularly by the shells from the Turkish warships. One of these fell on a
Bulgarian amnHmitien train, whieh exploded, resulting la great loss of life.
Constantinople. Tucker,
Nov. 2L-
Heart rending scenes of suffering
and misery are enacted daily at the
Turkish camp at San Stefano. The
correspondent of the Associated Frees,
accompanied by the secretary of a for
eign embassy and by Maj. Clyde S.
Ford, D. S. A., who is here on leave of
absence, paid a visit there today.
A nauseating picture was witnessed
at the side of the railroads. The
bodies which had been thrown from
the trains lay as they had fallen.
Some had stuck oil top of the em
bankment, others had rolled part of
the way down, and some had reached
the bottom. Some of the corpses lay
stiffly alone . Others were in groups
of threes and fours. Around a one
story stable at the foot of the em
bankment was a group of 60 dead and
dying, ly ng close together on the
slopes of a manure pile, which the
sick men had found softer than the
hard ground.
Twenty Two In One Tent.
A group of tents stood in the cen
ter, where four or five Turkish sol
diers wearing the armpiece of the
Red Crescent stood on guard. Inside
i be sick and dead lay in groups. The
doctors on duty counted 22 patients
in one tent, while double that num
ber lay outside sheltered from the
wind by the canvas. Some of the
stricken men found difficulty in get
ting into the Moslem position for
prayer, looking toward the east. One
praying victim was so weak that he
could not replace his blanket around
his head when the wind blew it off.
No Water For the Weak.
A water cart drawn by a donkey
passed along the road. Those of the
victims who were able to rise to their
feet went unassisted toward it and
struggled feebly for a drink. Those
unable to rise got none.
In a similar way, what appeared to
be army bread was distributed to
those able to reach the place of dis
tribution. Several of the sick men raised
themselves with difficulty and stum
bled toward a well, from which they
tried to dip water with their long
sashes, wetting the ends and moisten
ing their parched mouths, with them.
There were hundreds of dead and
thousands of sick in this camp, many
of them lying on the open ground
and great numbers supporting their
backs against the houses bordering the
open fields, most of which were de
serted. Protests at Foreign Legions.
The porte has applied to the em
bassies and legations for the with

presence is not necessary.

ent It is beliewed that the object of the
authorities n quartering 2000 patients
in the Mosque of St. Sophia is to
deter any enemies from setting foot
within the building. The talk in the
Sofia papers regarding the singing- -of
te deums in that historic pile un
doubtedly produced an impression on
the Turkish government, which re
sorted to this oriental expedient of
thwarting such a design.
Athens, Greece, Nov. 2L Greek
troops have occupied the Turkish town
of Fiorina, to the south of Monastir,
and cut off the rear guard of the Turk
ish army retreating from Monastir af

The Turkish soldiers who succeeded
in escaping through the Servian lines

Several Good Paying Jobs
Will Be Annexed in the
Senate After March 4.
(By Wlnfleld Jones.)
Washington, D. C, Nov. 21. Demo
cratic office seekers are making eyes
at some of the fat jobs around the
upper house of congress that -will fall
to the party when they take over con
trol of the senate after Jdarch 4. next
When the Democrats captured the
house about two years ago many Re
publican faces that were familiar
around the south end of the capitol
were suddenly missing. Judging by
the applications that are being re
ceived by senators from constituents,
none of the senate jobs will go beg
ging when the Democrats take hold of
te reins of legislation and the levers
of patronage.
Two of the places on the list of
senate appointments which are sure
to be filled by Democrats are those of
t the secretary and the sergeant at arms.
nacti pays $6508 a year. Charles G.
Bennett, of New York, has been sec
retary of the senate since 1900. and
has had the confidence of the upper
house, despite changes in New York's
representation in the senate. Whether
or net the place will fall to a New
York Democrat is still conjecture, for
it may be sought by some other state
which has two Democrats in the senate
instead of one. as New York has.
Col. Ransdell. sergeant at arms, has
likewise held the place since 1900
prior to that time being United States
marshal for the District of Columbia.
He hails from Indiana and his suc
cessor might come from the same state,
as the Hoosier commonwealth is rep
resented by two Democratic senators.
Just how far the shifts from Re
publicans to Democrats will affect the
subordinates in the two offices is not
known. It is pointed out, however,
that both offices have contained a
number of Democrats under the Re
publican regime in the senate and that
Republicans may hold on under the
Democratic control.
-Committee Clerkships.
There are numerous pinms among
committee clerkships which will fan
into Democratic hands. The clerkship i
of the senate committee on appropria
tions carries a salary or $4000 a year
and there are two assistants at $2500.
This patronage will be controled by
the Democratic senator who becomes

-ohairman of the committee. It is ex
Pected. however. ZthaZ aiitan clerk

Knowledge is required lor the fram
ing of appropriation bills and Mr.
Rea has been 'the expert for the sen
ate committee on appropriations for a
number of years.
The clerk of the senate finance com
mittee gets $3000 a year, which will
mean a promotion for a clerk of one
of the minority committees with a
salary of $2220 a year. There are
a. number of other committee clerk
shins that pay $2500 a year, and these
I will afford promotions for a number
of clerks to Democratic senators wha
have been receiving at best only the
salaries of minority committee clerk
ships. There is also the office of postmas
ter of the senate, which pays $2250 a
year. This place, like those of the
secretary of the senate and the ser
geant at arms, is regarded as legiti
mate patronage of the party in power
in the senate, and a Democrat is ex
pected to be selected.
The bulk of the applications for
places on Uncle Sam's pay roll that
are being received by Democratic sen
ators, of course, do not concern posi
tions in connection with the senate.
They are chiefly for Jobs la the states,
witi some for offices in the govern
ment departments.
OODROW WILSON, president elect, is familiarizing: himself with the operations of the American government
by readlnfj the book of Frederic J. Haskin the notable, authoritative work which The El Paso Herald Is of
fering to Its subscribers at a very small cost.
Dispatches to the New York World and the New York Telegram on the day following the election, state that
while the returns were being received, Mr. Wilson nat in the parlor of his home and read with deep interest this
book by Mr. Haskin, The American Government."
This is a testimonial about as strong as an author could wish, but the book has received ether tributes just as
high. Before it was published, It was read In proof by president Taft, speaker Champ Clark, and all the cabinet
officers and department heads, and each pronounced It absolutely correct and authentic. Becante of this official O.
K., Mr. 'Wilson purchased the book and ha been studying it to familiarize himself with the actual -workings of
the government. "The American Government" is the only book in existence devoted exclusively to the operations of
the American government, that is absolutely aHthentlc and approved by government oflclals. The head of each gov
ernment department was allowed to read in proof and make such corrections as were necessary, the matter referring:
to fats department, its duties, etc.
This great book may be procured at The Hi Paso Herald office for one coupon, cut front this paper, and ftfl
cents. The Herald, because of the educational character of the publication and Its desire te have Its subscribers
more familiar with their government, made a contract with Mr. Haskin for n large number ef these books and ob
tained them at a very low price and Is selling them at cost. The Herald believes the book should be In every Ameri
can heme; that every American voter should read it regardless of hi polities, for there is no politics In the hook
and for this reason it urges Its readers to fellow the example of Mr. Wilson and get a copy.

On their escape from the Wisconsin
woods, McManigal said James B. Mc
Namara a second time attempted to kill
"He wanted me to hold up a -tin can
and let him shoot a hole through it,"
said McManigal. "I told Mm to put a.
hole through himself If be wanted
to kill anybody.
"Telling of his experience at Los
Angeles, James B. said he would have
put a bomb in the Times auxiliary
plant if he could have located it that
night," testified McManigal. "Ho
said, leaving Los Angeles he went to
San Francisco to get money and re
mained there four days. Crossing to
Oakland on his way east, he said lie
threw four infernal machines into the
bay to get rid of them. He stopped
at Salt Lake City and remained two
weeks with J. & Munsay."

first day they arrived in the Wisconsin
woods to bide, James B. "took a
shot" at him.

In a battle yesterday near Madera, Chlhuahaa, 12 rebels were killed, In

In a telegram to Gen. Trucy Aubert at Juarez from Cap. Uriel Marauex, an
officer under Gen. Jose de la- Luz Bla ace.
The engagement occurred In the S an Joaquin canyon. Capt. Marauez with
one company of mounted volunteers en countered two groups of rebels. Ter
rains is a well known rebel chief. The rebels were absolHtely routed, says
the report, which falls to give the federal losses If any.
The death of Gen. Antonio Rojas, the rebel leader, as reported from Mexico
City, is denied at Juarez, no report of this sort having been made to Gen. Au
bert Since it was reported from the national capital that Rejas met death by
Gen. Blanco's troops, It is deemed prob able that confusion with the Battle of
yesterday caused a false report retard lng Rojas.

BriHjr Back Report That Taqais Have
Killed 2 People Within the
Last 3ft Days.
Douglas, Aria, Nov. 21. One of th
most perilous journeys recorded in re
cent months was that undertaken by
Capt. John C. Greenway. general man
age rof the Calumet A Arizona com
pany. Ira B. Jerollemon, the company's
examining expert, F. O. Bostwick and
R. H. Whitesides, of Douglas, and H.
P. McGee, of Hermosillo. when they
went 90 miles east of Hermosillo in an
automobile into the heart of the Yaqui
country- Their road was crossed sev
eral times by a band of raiding Indians
numbering 150 and they were in sev
eral towns which had been attacked but
a snort time before by the Indians.
Their good luck held, however, and
they escaped without injury. They re
port 62 people killed by Yaquis within
the past 30 days.
The party left Hermosillo, going 90
miles east and about 25 miles west of
the Yaqui river. When they arrived at
Cobachi they found that the Yaquis had
attacked the town, but had been driven
out. The citizens lost one man killed
and one Yaqui was killed. Two of the
inhabitants were taken prisoners. The
autoists were warned by the major in
command that they had better return
to Hermosillo as the Yaquis had that
day attacked Mazatan, a town 12 miles
to the north. The question was put up
to Mr. Greenway by the other members
of the party and it was upon his de
cision that they continued their journey
into the hostile country.
The antou party counted upon the
f doingthis. when they were driven
oft at Mazatan, they came hack south
and west. The main body passed
within three miles or the machine,
headed south. They arrived in Mazatan
and found that the Yaquis had entered
the town at daylight, on Nov. 17, and
occupied the plaza. They had fought
in some semblance of military order. A
hot fight ensued in which six citizens
were killed and two wounded, while
four Yaquis we.-e slain.
The Yaquis are adopting entirely
different tactics from their former ones.
They have learned from their service
in the two revolutions to maintain
some semblance of military order and
have also been taught the beneficial Re
sults of combining forces. Whereas
they formerly went about in bands of
10 or 12 they have now combined into
one large force of 150. Their head
quarters are at the Bacatete mountain
east of Guaymas. This has never been
trodden by any other foot than that
of a Yaqui and the Indians are said
to have extensive corn fields on top of
it as a food reserve. The Yaquis are
all wearing red hatbands, but -whether
this indicates that they are claiming
allegiance with the Orozcoistas is not
known. The government soldiers -who
are now operating against them are for
the most part Mayo Indians, the mortal
and hereditary enemies of the Yaquis.
In the last 30 days 62 people are
known to have been killed by the In
dians. Bostwick states. At one ranch
northwest of Guaymas nine cowboys
were taken out into a nearby field and
executed. The ranch -was left behind
tenanted only by the wjomen and chil
dren, and all of the women were
