Since I have been your servant, I have had but cne purpose, and that to faithfully and fearfully discharge the duties of the office as I saw them with out regard for the future. That 1 have made many mistakes goes with out saying and whatever success has attended my efforts is due in a large measure to the hearty co-operation which you and the members of the bar have so generously given me. You have honored me far beyond my desires, and, at the end of the present term, I shall turn the office back tc you with a heart full of gratitude. Yours very truly, J . T.

Douglas, Ariz., Dec. 9.—After a sharp engagament General Jose Dod iguez and his Villa army occupied Fronteras, south of Agua-Prieta to day, driving southward Carranza forces under General Elias Calies. Rodriguez burned several bridges be tv.-een Esqueda and Fronteras thus severing Calies railroad communica tionwith Agua Priet. Rodriguez al so cut telegraph and telephone -.vires upon entering Fronteras. Calies, however, managed to send word to Agua Prieta for help before retrating south. Several hundred men under General Flores were dispatched this afternoon to his aid. The . capture of Fronteras places Rodriguez again between two Car ranza forces and gives him control cf the railroad running between Agua Prieta and Nacorzari. The garrison at Agua Prieta once more was placed in readiness for attack. Five Americans reached here to day from Fronteras but J. W. Cun ningham of Tulsa, Okla., and H. G. Southern of Douglas, Ariz., previous ly threatened by Villa troops were no:, among them and fears were again felt for their ^.ifety. Information that Villa with a small force had appeared at Batuoy come from reliable sources but could not be confirmed. | Indictments Returned Brownsville, Dec 9.—Luis Saenz, Mexican, was indicted by a federal grand jury here today on a charge of inciting a rebellion against the United States.

He was arrested by Federal offi cers while making an alleged incendi ary speech against the United States at a Mexican dance. He was said to have been intoxicated at the time. Three other indictments in connec tion with the border troubles were returned.

Saenz was arrested early in th.e morning of September 17, following a celebration of Mexican Independ ence the night before where he was found addressing a small Mexican gathering. After his arrest officers searched his home and found a red cloth which they claimed was the flag of the Revolutionists.

London, Dec. 9.—Quiet prevails along the entire Russian front, where severe wintry weather has increased the hardships of war. The cnly fight ing reports are a few minor local en gagements and some sporadic artille ry actions which apparently Is not in tended to pressage any immediate troop action.

London, Lee. !).■—The situation in the Balkans is developing rapidly. The Germans and Bulgarians have reached Kenali, on the Greek border, 10 miles south of Monastic, thus threatening to out flunk the Anglo-French forces, while Bulgarians, who are supposed to be led by Germans have attacked the allies’ extreme right wing near Stumitsa. I’nder th pressure the French have withdrawn rrom the Krivolak salient and at last accounts had taken up a position at Demirkapon in a deep gorge about 20 miles from the Greek frontier, through which the Saloniki railway runs. Here tliev were attack d by the Bulgarians who, according to the French reports, were repulsed. Apparently the Germans are deter mined tc crush the little force which went to the assistancec*f the Serbians and which is being reinforced. The retirement of the allies to Demirka pou has led to the report that they In tend to abandon the Balkan enter prise, hut the continued landing of troops at Saloniki would seem to contradict this. There is a strong military opinion here that Saloniki should be held as a base for future op erations in the Near East. French Official Statement. The Paris communication follows: “During the afternoon of December 5 Bulgarian forces delivered a violent attack against our bridgehead at De tnlrkapouonhe Vardar river.
