Wednesday, Nov. 19, 1913. Til - w OFPfflFFiFfpi; 11111 urriuLOO Gen. Scott Asked to See if He Can Quiet Them; Two Troops From Nebraska. FORT BUSS ORDER FOR TROOPS ANNTJLED WASHINGTON. D. C-. Nov. 19. Secretary of the interior Lane Issued the following statement today concerning the IS Navajo indian outlaws encamped on Beautiful moun tain. New Mexico, who are defying arrest: "The sending of troops to capture the .ndians was done on advice of Maj. McLaughlin, who for 3 years has been Known as the Indians' friend. Saturday he sent me the following telegram: -The' United States marshal left for Santa Fe with three of the indicted Navajos, -who surrendered, leaving eight of the indicted still in camp. There are seven other Indians with them. I returned here from conference with the indians at Noel's store, six miles from their mountain camp. This is a natural stronghold. They abso lutely refuse to surrender. I recom mend that a sufficient force be sent to overawe the recalcitrant band.'" "I held a conference," said secretary Lane, "with commissioner Sells, of the indian office, and replied as follows: " 'We would greatly regret to use force, and this must be the last resort. I am not favorable to the use of troops if this can be avoided.' Pears Serious Trouble. Wilis morning I received Maj. Mc Laughlin's answer, as follows: " This recalcitrant band has been de fying the authorities since Sept. 17 and have been appealed to bv Chee Dodge Peshlaki and Charley Mitchell, the most influential men of the tribe, also by a majority of other Navajo head men, to deliver themselves up, but to no avail. It would require 500 men to sur round their camp and in my judgment they cannot be starved into submission. They have threatened, the lives of friendly indians and of trader Walker. They have also threatened to burn the agency and sawmill, six miles south of their camp, and kill the while peonle employed there. They have been defy ing the law for the last two months. To defer their arrest much lonerer is liable to bring them supporters from among those who are now friendly. The offenders believe that the govern ment is either afraid of them or don't want them arrested and punished by the courts." As a result Mr. Lane asked the war department to send troops. Troops Ordered Sent. The war department at once acted on the request of secretary Lane and or dered trqpps. . In the hope hpwever that the excited indians may be induced to yield peace ably and surrender, the war department ordered Gen. Hugh L Scott, command ing the Second cavalry brigade at Fort Bliss, to proceed in haste to the Navajo agency to confer with the indian chiefs. Gen. Scott May Settle It. Gen. Scott is singularly influential with the Navajos, whose language he speaks. He has always, been regarded by them as their best friend and it is believed that he will be able to placate them. The general's instructions are to con fer with Maj. McLaughlin, the indian agent, before beginning his conference. To back his mission with a show of force, orders were also sent to Fort Robinson. Neb., to entrain and despatch to the Navajo agency a full squadron of the Twelfth cavalry to serve as Gen. Scptt's escort. , Tio Troops From Bliss. Gen. Tasker H. Bliss, commanding the southern military department, was first ordered to dispatch troops from Fort Bliss; but as none could be spared from the 'border patrol and as the Fifteenth cavalry, just arrived at Fort Bliss, has not had sufficient experience with the new Worses, just turned over to that regiment by the Second cavalry, it was not deemed expedient to send the troops from Bliss. Indians Burn Slgnnl Fires. Farmington. N. M. Nov. 19. With signal fires Mazing at many points on Beautiful Mountain, where 15 Navajo indians have fortified themselves in open defiance of the Washington gov ernment, and with the indians holding war dances and 'singing their ancient war songs, the situation on the Navajo reservation, where an incipient uprising exists, is ne tended to give agent W. T. Shelton. at the Shiprock agency, grave concern. Agent Shelton has a force of 30 deputies, all heavily armed, on guard at the agency, while indian police, working In regular shifts throughout each 24 hours doing scout duty, mini mize the possibility of a surprise attack lv the renegade Indians, should they attempt an offensive movement. In the meantime, agent Shelton and Maj. McLaughlin are awaiting the arrival at Shiprock of Gen. Scott, from Tl Ppso. Texas, and the sauadron of United States cavalry from Fort Hobin Kon. Neb., with no little apprehensive-ness. .-n-U'TJCTT'V TIinRTS TO GET THANKSGIVING ONLY Austin. Texas. Nov. 19. An .official statement issued by Dr. S. R.

I MAIL FOR JUAREZ, 500 SACKS, IS HELD "Villa doesn't seem a bit anxious to get any mail," said postmaster J. A. Smith. "We have 500 sacks of mall for .Juarez here.

Arguments were heard in the case following the close of the testimony, and a verdict was expected before night Chief of Police Noble, of Houston, Tex., was a witness of the defence.
