POOH-POOHS BATTLE ALARM Huerta Professes to Belittle ' Danger of Constitution alist Attack BUT COMPANIONS TAKE PRECAUTION Fugitive Dictator Spends Most of His Time in Railroad Car Fuerta Mexico, July 20. General ' Huerta to-day shrugged hia shoulders ; contemptuously at the idea that a force of constitutionalists known to be a , short distance from here would' dare to attack the city. ' . The military companions of the fugi tive former dictator did not display the same degree of confidence and an extend ' ed line of outposts was maintained to r day to prevent the constitutionalists from approaching nearer. Huerta continued to pass most of the time in the railroad ear in which he ar : rived from Mexico City. Now that the means of getting away from Mexico have been arranged there is a marked change in the bearing of all the fugi tives. The ship which will carry the women and children away is expected to-day, but it is not thought likely that it will leave before to-morrow.

A report of the battle in Vancouver harbor early yesterduy .between Canadian officials backed by police and a body of Hindus on the Japanese steamer Komagata Maru was received by the government officials last nirrht. The steamer arrived three months ago, with 3o0 Hindus, who claimed an British subjects the right to land in Canada The Canadian immigration officials re fused them admission on the ground that they were undesirable persons. Several times the Hindus attempted to reach shore but were prevented by guard boats on watch over the ship. The courts sustained the position tak en by the government and the Japanese captain of the steamer , was given until o'clock Saturday afternoon to sail for India with his load of Hindus. The report as given out by the im migration department states: ".Shortly after the captain of the Kom acata Maru reported that the passes gers prevented him from getting steam no and asked for assistance, or a lou nolicemen and " immigration officials re sponded. They went out to the vessel in the larcest tug available, out were unable to gain the deck ot the Komagata Maru in the face of a stubborn resist ance offered by the -Hindus on board. From all parts of the ship they hurled down on the officers coal, iron barn, nieces of machinery, hatchets and clubs, injuring many men and smashing the windows of the tug. "Some shots were fired by the Hindus, but the officers, although armed, in their anxiety to avoid bloodshed did not re turn the fire. At 2 o clock a. m. realis ing the difficulty. of reaching the deck of the vessel from the tug they retired, taking with them 20 injured men, among whom was the captain of the tug, suffer ing from broken ribs. Fortunately none of the injuries are likely to prove fatal. "While desirous that no unnecessary violence shall be used, the government is determined that the law shall without fail be effectively and rigidly enforced, and with this end in view have author ized the use of the cruiser Rainbow to effect a boarding of the Komagata Maru. If necessary to secure control and main tain it, the Hindus will be handcuffed, a proceeding which in view of their vio lent actions last night, is considered fully justified. The government has in structed its agents to deport the reject ed Hindus on the steamer Kmpress of Japan next Thursday if it appears that deportation by the Komagata Maru can not be promptly and effectively accom plished." It is feared here that lives may be lost before the Hindus are subdued, as they have been virtually prisoners on board the vessel for three months and are in a desperate frame of mind. They are known to have a number of rifles and other firearms and many of them are former British-Indian soldiers, long trained in the use of weapons of war.

To the fact that the top was up is ascribed the remarkable escape, as the top caught the occupants and sheltered them from contact with trees or from landing in two feet of wa ter. The occupants of the car were Mr. and Mrs. McKenzie and their two children, Edward, aged 1!) months, and Vincent, aged five months, and Mr. and Mrs. Wil liam Doiioliue of Websterville and their four children, William, Madeline, .Mildred and Mary, whose ages range from a babe about one year to five years old. .

At the spot where the accident oc curred the turn to the right going south ward is blind with bushes obscuring the approach and with the further danger of a narrow road, into which the Stevens branch has eaten to such an extent as to make the bank unstable. The Mc Kenzie car was not proceeding rapidly, nor waa the Dow car coming from Wil liamstown; arid the two drivers nego tiated the narrow passing successfully. However, the road was so narrow that j Mr. '-McKenzie was forced to run near the edge and the bunk seemed to Bink beneath the right wheels and although tlie driver made efforts to turn back onto solid ground, the wheels had gone so far down that such a move was impossible. Then, realizing that he could not get back, the driver set both the emergency and the foot brakes and brought the car to a complete stop, the vehicle mean while sliding until it turned turtle. But nine of the passengers went down as Mr. Donahue by a quick movement had thrown Edward McKenzie into the road so that the youngster landed un harmed and was the only person visible when Mr. Dow stopped his machine and went back to the scene. Mr. Dow and his two bovs at once went to the rescue of the imprisoned nine as they Jay cooped in the ton of the overturned car. The two women and five children were taken out promptly and although they were considerably ' unnerved by their experi ence not one of them appeared to be much the worse, except that Mrs. Dono hue complained of a pain in her buck.- Mr. Donohue climbed out into two feet of water and Mr. McKenzie was hemmed in by the steering wheel and windshield so that he had to be assisted out. the lower part of the shield being broken in his rescue, the upper glass having been broken as the car went down the bank. I.oth Mr. McKenzie and, Mr. Donohun seemed to have been as fortunate as those in the rear seat as regards injurie.. But while the parts of the machine had thus helped to protect the occupants from serious harm, the car itself was considerably wrecked. It is a 1914 Over land, purchased by Mr. McKenzie about the first of June." Tl top was broken and bent in the windshield was smashed: the right mudgilard was twist ed one liemllifht was smashed: tlie ra diator was displaced so that it leaks.' and tne noov oi me iuhcuiui; h scratched and dented. It took about three hours to get the vehicle back in the road and the opera- . tion was watched by the occupants of a long line of vehicles which had been halted when tackle block rojies were strung across the road. By means of the tackle the machine was righted and put on blocking and later hauled up the hank, its hood having been partially submerged and its rear resting against the birch tree when the operation was started. When the car was restored to the road it was found Hint the gasoline had all leaked out of the tank so that tiie ma chine could not for that reason be run to this rity. so it was towed in by Mark Cutler, "who had lieen summoned from the Palace garage. It was thought, how ever, that the engine had not been dam Aged by the roll down the bank. Mr.' Dow- meanwhile had carried the women and children of the wrecked auto to their home jn Websterville and. be sides, did everything posxiljfe to assist. Mr. McKenrie doe not blame him in the least for the accident, saying that Mr. Dow gave him h.ilf the road. The pls'-e is in the town of iljiamstown.
