ELS SLIP Are Moving Towards Casas Grandes, From Which the Federal Troops Came. FEDERALS ARE NOW ALONG THE CENTRAL Now that the federals have been transferred to the Mexican Central from the Casas Grandes district, move ment of the combined rebel forces into he Casas Grandes district has begun. Ranchmsn arriving today from the Hanto Domingo ranch report that the rebels were encamped Monday near Carmen, midway between Gallego, on the Mexican Central railway. and Tt arson, on the Mexico North Western railway. The rebels' location at Car r. en is verified by an official govern ment report. They say the forces jmprise the groups under Caraveo, .-alazar, Rojas and Porras, which re Ofntly mobilized about Gellego, where the passenger train was attacked last wetk This move by the rebels throws the federal forces proceeding over the Central by rail north from Chihuahua ,ty and Juarez in positions of lit tle value for work against the rebels. Gen. Jose de la Luz Blanco, who left Ju arez last week remains in thevidntyof Moctezurna, and so far has not de trained any of his cavalry to pursue tne rebels. The rebel move evidently has been made on receipt of news that "lanco had removed his force from the" .orth Western line to escort the worlj fain operating below Juarez. By crossing to the North Western railway, the rebels, whose combined strength is estimated at more than 100. will have entered the territory rast protected by federal troops. At t'asas Grandes, which is admittedly more desired than Juarez, are gar risoned about 600 federals', while 3H are stationed at Madera. At Guzman, tc the north, are ISA men. while 168 cavalry are stationed at Ascencion, off the railway near the Guzman station. CAMPA IS TAKEN TO PHOENIX FOR TRIAL Phoenix, Ariz.. Dec 11. Gen.

FEDERALS FAVORED; REBELS INCENSED Washington, D. C Dec. 11. W. S. Pence, of Chicago; H. S. Stephenson, of Los Angeles, and E. K. Warren, of i Three Oaks, Mich., having interests in Mexico,, have protested to the state department ahout what they claim is the practice of the United States in per mitting exports of arms and ammuni tion to the Madero soldiers in Mexico. The three men recently appeared be fore the senate committee headed by senator William Alden Smith, inves tigating whether the revolutions in Mexico have been fomented or aided by Americana. The three men pointed out that the effect of the application of such rules forces the rebels to levy upon Amer icans in Mexico by a system of forced loans or ransoms to procure weapons of war. They have urged upon the state department that the only means ? iS-iKB irf S.i iy"iy was, lo r"urn of arms and ammunition to both sides without restriction It has been pointed out by state de partment officials that under the re cent neutrality proclamation the gov ernment is absolutely 'prohibited from permitting war supplies to go to the insurgents.

FUEL OIL IS TAKEN OFF MET Will Be Refined Into Gaso lineThis City Is Not Af fected by Change, PLENTY OF FUEL OIL FOR EL PASO Again the Standard Oil company is planning to withdraw all of the crude petroleum from the market to refine it for gasoline to keep the automobile going. The reported withdrawal of the crude product from the oil market, which originated with the Iron Trade Review, has come back in the form of a report that the Standard had offered -the Santa Fe railroad system a bonus of $190,000 for its present cirtontraci and also of fered to convert tfte oil ourntng loco motives into c-al burners free for the railroad if it would relinquish the con tract which it has with the Standard for the delivery of crude oil on the en tire system. The withdrawing of crude oil by the Standard company Is admitted by local oil men. Inc'uding those who represent companies closely affiliated with the standard. The reasoj. for this lmpor- that the demand for gaso line and higher distillates is so much greater than the present supply that the companies, Including the Standard and its subsidiary companies.-have been unable to meet this demand. Gasoline Is Array Up. The result has been an increase In the price of gasoline from 14 to lo cents. Even with the increased price or tne product, the acmand continues to IncrA5u. until tile StAndarri has de- aiier a series ui tuiimusuve inuuiaivry , experiments by the Standard's staff of I chemists. In these tests it was demon- strated. that a better price, could be duct, even in large quan'ities. To Revolutionize Manufacturing.

Acting upon the first report of this Standard move, one Milwaukee steel plant in creased the cost of crucible steel cast ings $13 a tou. Another plant placed orders immediately attar- Jh circula tion of thereaort forJ. jT.t producers for the plant. The revolu tion in the oil industry is expected to work a particular hardship on the cru cible steel industry, as these plants win experience great difficulty in operating "hout the use of crude oil Kl Pniin Mnnnfapfnrlnr Sltnntlnn- !

The city of EI Paso, whieh is the second largest consumer of crude oil. also has a contract for three years, made Nov. 5, and which expires Nov. 6. , 1915. This oil is for the city water- ; works, and the sewage disposal plant, j The City's Oil Contract. ' The contract was a private one, made by mayor C E. Kelly.

With the withdrawal of oil in other fields, much of this Mexican crude is expected to be shipped to this country, and. .as El Paso is on the border and a rail port of entry, it will be assured a supply of fuel oil for many years, local oil men say. One effect the changa may have, however, will be to bring in the Toyah and Dayton, N. M.. fields, which have not yet been developed. They are said to be high grade oil fields and, with the increased demand for refining oil, these fields may be opened. The contemplated change is extiected to affect the Oklahoma.

Boland On the Stand. William P. Boland, of Scranton. Pa., the man charged bby Judge Archbald with having organized a conspiracy that resulted in Judge Archbald's Im peachment and his present trial before the senate, admitted on the witness stand in the senate yesterday that he had suggested the various steps by which Judge Archbald was connected with the deal for the Katydid refuse coal dump, in order to "check up Judge Archbald." 'T wanted to button up judge Archbald," he said shaking his finger at the accused jurist, who sat in front of him. I wanted to show he was the Kind of a man he is. These admissions were interspersed with the vigorous denunciation of juage Arcnoaia oy Jir. .duiu.hu corrunt iudsre and charges that judge Archbald had been "working for the railroads." , An-iiTcra With Denunciation, j Repeated demands were made by judge Archbald's attorney that Mr. Boland be required to "answer ques tions directly, but, notwithstanding cautions from senator Bacon, presid ing, he embodied in his replies sweep ing charges against judge Archbald and frank admissions that he set out to get hold of everything he could that would help in "showing up" judge Archbald. The testimony of Boland centered chiefly about the case of the Marion Coal company, of which they were chief owners, embraced in the second article of Impeachment. Mr. Boland said he believed judge Archbald had used his influence to attempt to bring about a settlement of a case between the Marion Coal company and the Lackawanna railroad. Why Demurrer Was Overruled. He admitted he had told attorney general Wickersham and members cf the interstate commerce commission that he believed judge Archbald had overruled the demurrer of tho Marlon Coal company because Boland had re fused to discount Judge Archbald's note. When pressured for evidence to prove this, he said he had been re peatedly told by E. J. Williams, the associate of judge Archbald in coal land operations, that It would have been "better for him" if he had dis counted the note. ''JVhere did you get your informa tion about Judge Archbald?" attornev Worthington asked. "Mr. Williams would tell me what was going to happen and would tell me of the influence behind judge Archbald," Boland replied. "Then. I began to check up the judge. I got information from his associates as to what he was doing for the railroads." Tried to Use the Judge Himself. "Did you send E. J. Williams to get judge Archbald to write a letter to W. A May, urging that they give Mr. Williams an option on the Katydid dump?" "Yes, I did," Mr. Boland answered. "Did you afterwards suggest to Wil liams that he get judge Archbald to go to New York to see Erie offi cials"" 1 think I did," Boland replied.

Ariz Dec 11. Contracts to' supply the mining companies near Mi ami and Magna with electric power on terms that -will return to the project hundreds of thousands of dollars an nually, has been made by the United States reclamation service for the Salt river project During the month announcements have been made of great economic importance to the entire project in con nection with these power lines, for the building of which surveys are now un der way, and the remodeling of the Roosevelt-Phoenix line that has been in commission some time. Experience has demonstrated that the interference with the service on the Boosevelt-Phoenix line has resulted mainly from the perching of large birds on the poles, which, by extending their wings until they touched two wires, have short circuited and burned out the line. It has been decided to re model the line by elevating the pres ent poles, or towers, somewhat, and attaching the wires by "suspension" in sulation. The towers and crossarms will then be above the wires so birds perched thereon cannot reach them, nor can they, stttin on . one wire, reach another. This remodeling will cost considera ble money, but it will also- make neces sary about one-third of the towers now in use. The Miami and Magna line3 are to be built by the purchasers of the power and not at the expense of the project. The- towers to be dis carded by the Roosevelt-Phoenix line will be utilized in the construction of the new lines and the project reim bursed to the extent of their, value. It is estimated that the salvage thus secured will just about offset the ex pense of remodeling the Roosevelt Phoenix lino which will then be equipped in the most up to date man ner and better service assured.

Ryan and other officials of the union but he never had discussed with them any plans for the use of violence or dynamite jobs. "Before McNamara was taken to Los Angeles had you any knowledge that dynamite or nitroglycerin was used on non-union jobs?" asked William A. Gray, counsel for Cunnane "Never, heard of it till McNamara'a arrest" Cunnane said his appearance before the International union's executive board was not to "discuss dynamiting, but in connection with proposed "local option" for the Philadelphia union so the members might work for con tractors who maintained union shops locally regardless of the strike Deny Plot at Detroit.
