Gen. Scott Asked to See if
He Can Quiet Them; Two
Troops From Nebraska.
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
"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
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
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.
Austin. Texas. Nov. 19. An .official
statement issued by Dr. S. R. Hezes,
president of the university of Texas,
to the student's association, says that
there will be no holidays in the uni
versity on the Friday and Saturday fol
lowing Thanksgiving.
Many of the students and faculty
members had expected the university
to close Wednesday night until Monday
morning, following Thanksgiving fes
Austin. Texas, Now 19. The first ap
plication to sell stock and operate un
der the socalled Blue Sky law which
became effective yesterday, was filed
today in the state department by the

the one which proposes to puonsn a
daily and semi-weekly newspaper In
Texas backed by the leading "pros."

nix Senators pounded southpaw John
son for 13 safeties and defeated the
Mesa Gems 5 to 0. Hall, who twirled
for Phoenix, allowed four hits. No
errors were committed by the Sena
tors, but bad ones were chalked up
against Morris and Core, ef the visitors.
"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. I have gone over to
see Villa about it, and I have 'phoned
him about it, but it doesn't seem to
concern him very much, as he has not
i aone anything toward getting it.
I "I believe they appointed Manuel
Bouche Alcalde postmaster yesterday,
but he has not said anything to us
about wanting the Juarez mall. While
we are waiting we will open the sacks
and take out the mail for the United
States. Lots of the mail In these
sacks has been bonded through from
Mexico, so we will separate that be
fore we send the rest over.

A Riner. Mrs. Joseph L. Wler. on the
most stand in the trial in -which she is
charged, with her nustand, an army
officer, with the theft of clothing from
Mrs. J. S. Cecil, claimed that dresses
which she asserts she bought for a
trifling sum from a woman canvasser,
did not fit. and that therefore there
would have been no object in steal
ing them
Her attorney suggested that she try
on one of the gowns In open court to
substantiate her claim. The witness
promptly consented, and there was a
momentary flutter of excitement
among the spectators. Judge Riner,
however, hastily interrupted the pro
ceedings, saying that the demonstra
tion was unnecessary.
Arguments were heard in the case
following the close of the testimony,
and a verdict was expected before
Chief of Police Noble, of Houston,
Tex., was a witness of the defence.
The court Instructed the jury to find
Lieutenant Wier not guilty, no evi
dence having been produced to con
nect him with the alleged theft.

Extra special, each P A vr
VT7HAT is the new fashion?" some one
asked Mme. Jenny, of Paris. "What
ever is beautiful to look at," she replied with a
pretty smile. After reviewing the almost endless
fashions on the Third Floor any woman must co
incide in that opinion. Whatever is beautiful to
look at is the fashion and it is all here. - Seldom,
if ever, has there been offered such a bewildering
variety of charming dresses. They have all sorts
of picturesque movements, swaying, floating ef
fects which give them grace and softness.
From the little lace gowns at $15 up to the original
models of the great Parisian dressmakers, there are
many gowns to suit each individual complexion,
figure and preference.
Every dress here shows foreign inspiration. The
makers represented usually send their designee to
Paris two or three times a year. This, with all
the fashions our own scouts bring and the additional
cables, photographs and letters constantly being re
ceived by our New York office, keeps the "Pop
ular" up to the very last minute of Paris.
So delicate, so feminine and wonderfully pretty are
these evening gowns that trying them on will be as
amusing as going to a play. Only a few gowns of
each model, so there is very little risk of duplica
tion. We call your especial attention to the even
ing dresses at $15, $1950. $25 and $3450.
