Senator O'Gorman, leading demo

Senator McCumber's argument was
one of the most extensive yet presen

speech appealed to all "right thinking

stand the president has taken, "re

senators crossed the chamber to con- I

Jaur?s Mexico April 6.-Northern
and Central Mexico, it is nald, are be
ing thoroughly cleared of Spanish res
idents by the Constitutionalists. The
latest news of wholesale expulsion of
Spaniards Was brought here by Gen
eral. Eufalio Gutierrez, commander of
rebel forces In the state of San Luis
"We have expelled every Spaniard
from that part of the State which we
{control," said the general today, "and
we control all of it except the capital
and the city of Matehuala. I estimate
tani ucarty 1,000 apanhwVi? titi ve hovu
deported in the last two months."
Every consideration has been shown
them. General Gutierrez said. They
have been given plenty of time to car
ry away with them their household
effects and ethf "possessions, but not
one has been permitted to remain in
side the rebel linea.
Justification for the wholesale de
portation, it to said, ls found by the
Insurgent chiefs in* article 33 of the
Mexican constitution-the famous
"pernicious foreigner" law-which
gives Mexican authorities th eright tb
deport undesirable allens.
General Gutierrez followed up his
story of the' Spanish exodus by a
threat against the Jesuits tn Mexico.
"And the Jesuits come next," he said.
Already, it was learned, numbers of
Catholic priests have ? been , forced to
leave the country in which 'the
Gutierrez men are operating. Many
of the deported priests were said to
be Spaniards, bnt a number of Mexi
