Washington, D. C, April 8. The orig
inal order given Funston on March 10
for the American punitive expedition
into Mexico was made public for the
hrst time to-dav. It did not include di
rections for the de.ith or capture of Villa
but was principally directed to the dis-
porsal of Villa's outlaw Iwnd.

For American Troops to Use Mexican
Queretaro, Mexico, April 8. The Mex
ican government has not given the Amer
ican government permission to use Mex
ican railways for any purpose whatever,
said General Candida Aguillar, Mexican
minister of foreign relations, after a
meeting of the Carranra cabinet yester
day. At the cabinet meeting, General Car
ranra and his advisers discussed the
modifications suggested by the United
States in the recent proposals for an
agieement for crossing the frontier. be
tween the i nited States and Mexico by
the armed forces of the respective gov
ernments. The latest proposals of the
Washington state department were re
ceived here Thursday, having been sent
by Elesio Arredondo, Mexican minister
designated to the United States.
General Aguillar denied vigorously
stories published in the Aniericau pre.is
to the effect that thj Carranza govern
ment had given permission to the Unit
?d States army forces to use Mexican
railroads for transportation of foodstuffs
and supplies.
"Please rectify these false statements,"
said General Aguillar to the Associated
Press. "The Mexican government has
not given the American government per
mission to use Mexican railways for any
purpose whatever."
Washington, D. C, April 8. General
Carranza agreed about two weeks ago to
commercial" use of the Mexican North
western railway for shipment of sup
plies destined to United States troops
in Mexico and such shipments already
are Iwing sent over the road to pri
vate parties. It is assumed here that
the statement of General Aguillar was
made to reassure the Mexican people
that the Carranza government had not
allowed the American expedition to take
control of the road.

Henry J. Vaughan of Stowe Was Native
of Pomfret.
Stowe, 'April 8. Henry J. Vaughan,
who died a Waterbury Center yester
day, aged 84" v ears, was a resident of
Stowe seven years, living at the lower
village for the years and on Maple street
for two years, moving from here to
Waterbury Center 27 years ago. He was
a native ot I'omtret. and uvea in mm-
lleex and Waterbury previous to com
ing to Stowe. He was a veteran of the
civil war, serving two years in Co. K,
it h Vermont regiment. He leaves his
wife, Mrs. Samantha Warren Vaughan,
to whom he had been married 60 years;
fuir children. Mrs. Cora Morrimn, Miss
Milford, X. If., April 8. It is generalls'
understood that the settlement of the
Quinr-y strike will govern actions here.
The men held a meeting in Granite Cut
ters' hall yesterday and it is under
stood that as soon as they receive their
back strike pay they will go to work.
There has been no pay received from
headquarters at (Juinrv, and it is under
stood that the reason is that the strike
roll, as sent in, is wrong, as it contains
names of men who were not working
here at the time of the strike.
The quarrymen have received no pay
in the last week. When the trouble
started they voted to lay aside $,VK for
the men who were not working at the
time the trouble started. Now their
money is gone and they have received
none from Barre. They voted in the lo
cal here that every man who was a
member of the local would receive his
strike pay whether-he was working at
the time of the strike or not.

XMicn Washington county court wan
adjourned by Judge Fred M. Butler this
noon until 0 o'clock Tuesday forenoon,
the plaintiff in the ease of Seth C. P.icli
vs George M. Cross, was nearly ready in
rest the case and the defense will prob
ably start introducing witnesses Tues
day, afternoon.'
This forenoon Mr. G'lirieti, employed
at the Bailey grist mill, the last person to
see the Cross car before it took the
plunge down the ravine on Xnrthfielil
street which resulted in the death of
Mrs. Seth C. .Rich, told what he knew
of the accident. He had accompanied a.
young ladj; to her home on Xorthfield
street and was starting on the return
tri to the cily proper when he noticed
the automobile - routine toward him.
bound for Xorthfield.
His attention was first called to tlia
car by the lights of the machine as it'
came over the crest of the hill and sped
past him. He was on the left hand side
of the road. It was his opinion that
the car was traveling rapidly. As soon
as the machine left tlie road he ran back
to tlie scene and discovered the car with
Mr. Cross seated at the steering wheel.
Mrs. Green was not in the car -when htj
reached it.
He was followed on the stand by I Jr.
C. E. Hunt, who testified that he visit
ed, earlier to-day Miss Evelyn Brown,
the voung lady who had been escorted
home on the night of the accident by
Mr. OBricu and found her condition sucli
that she. was able to come to court and
testily. Attorney Austin explained tliati
the young lady had asked to be excused
because of a severe cold. Arrangements
were made to have the lady appear Tues
day as she now resides six miles from
Kussell Allen, a chauffeur with several
years' experience, who said he had been
employed at the Cutler garage in Burro
and tiie Cross garage in Xorthfield and
was now in the employ of T. A. Wright
of St. Johnsburv, followed. He told of
seeing the Cross car in the Northfiehl
garage the morning following the acci
dent and described closely the damages
to the machine. He said that lie had
driven the car, a 11)15 model, and had
"made'' the Xorthfield hill on the high
gear. It was possible, he believed, for
the machine to obtain a speed of 5
miles an hour on reaching the top of
the bill and it could be made to pick up
speed from that point on past the sccno
of the accident. An examination of the
machine the morning following the acci
dent, revealed to him a jammed front
fender, a broken running board on the
right side, a slightly crushed hood, a,
jammed rear fender, the rear seat was
bent backward three or four inches, the
upholstering of the rear seat was torn
in several places and the front axle aiel
steering yper.wcre slightly sprung. Tin
right uont wheel, which preceding wit
nesses hud testified was crushed, had
been removed when he viewed t lie car
and a new wheel placed in its stead.
