Washington.-More than 25.000 Na tional Guardsmen, now on tlie Mexican border, have been designated by Ma jor General Funiston for return homile andll mustor out of the Federal service, under the order Issued by the War De partment. All these organizations will be start ed homeward as soon as transportation facilities cinl be provided. Their de parture will leave between 45.000 and 50,000 men of the guard still in the Federal service doing border patrol. War Department officials contintue to withhold comment onl reports Ihat the moventent of General Pershing's regulars oet of Mexico soon will be uinder way, and the statement anl ntouneiig the guardsmen designated for relief does not conileet these or ders with the withdrawal plaits in inly way. The understanding has been, however, that with the return of the expedition In Mexico, and re adjustment of the border patrol, all of the state troops gradually wound be sent home. The department's statemeit said: "General Fllunston has selected these organizations chiefly in accordance with the rule of returning first those troops longest in service on the bor der. To some ext ent, iowever. this rule could not be followed without unequal weakening of the border guard, and the departIres from it are so explained. The total strength of the organizations sele(-ted is 25.243." The guardsmen designated for r-e turn and muster ouit inc(.lude: North Carolina- - First Infantry.

The note also explains why the Allies demand the expulsion of Turkey from Europe, restoration of r Alsac-eLorraine to France, of Italia I rredenta to Italy, and the other ter ritorial changes set forth. Those nwho think the future of the world may be insured by international treaties and international laws, the note says, hiave ill-learned the lessons taught by recent history. After charging that German influence in Turkey had re Isulted in conditions as barbarous and smore aggressive than were known d unmder Sultan Abdul Hanmid, and that it had been shown Germany eannot n-be expectedl to respect treaty obliga k(1 tions, Mr. Balfour says: "So long as Germany remains the Germany~ wvhich, without a shadow of r- justifieation, overran arnd barbarously ill-treated a country it was pledged to dlefend,. no state can regard its lrights as secure if they have no better pr'otection than a solemn treaty." ig 0SPECIAL COMMITTEE ADVISES ~t- RETENTION OF ALL NAVY YARDS, LbIWashington.--Retention of all ox yv isting navy yards. establishment of t-sub~mari ne bases onth Atatc Gulf and Pacific coasts, and a thor rough aeronautical survey of the coast oof the Unit'ed States and in posses id sions wvere recommended to Congress in In a preliminary report by a speclal to Oommission of naval ofticer's appoint ed by President Wilson,. 1e sg FIND NO TRACE OF sMISSING AVIATORS, Id Calexico, Cal.--Army officers pilot. re ing three airplanes failed to find any trace of the two Army officers, Liett Col.

Washington.-Admiral Dewey, the iaots Spanish War hero and by l aeriority of grade the ranking naval officer of the wvorld,died at his home 11 here in his eightieth year. He had not been cosol ous since the day before a wvhen hie lapsed into coma, still be- a d leving that in a few days ie would a be back at his desk in the navy depart men t.IA A general breakdown, accompanied by a-terio sclerosis Incident to old age, was the cause of death. The dis- 11 ease had been, gradually spreading Its 0 hold upon the powerful body for a 11 year and a half, but the admiral, proud V of his physical vigor, had fought it off' and even kept its existence a secret | from most .of his intimate friends. Mrs. Dewey and the admiral's only ' son, George, were at the bedside. They had known there was no hope. The admiral died at 5:56 o'clock. President Wilson and Secretary Dan. iels were notified at once and the news was flashed by wireless to American I naval vessels and stations all over the world. The message carried orders that all flags be put at half-mast. The president will confer with Sec retary Daniels and Rear Admiral Badger and arrange for the funeral which takes place Saturday. The body will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, on the Virginia shore of the Potomac river, where many of Admi ral Dewey's former comrades have been laid to rest. Only other two men--Farragut andl Porter-have held the rank of the admiral of the American navy, and since Civil War days, no military fig. uire has held such a place as Dewey in the affections and admiration of the American. people. Hius death ended 62 years of active service. His -"baptism of fire" came in the Civil War, through which he served with dis-I inetion. Promotion followed promo tion during the years following, and he wvas a commodore commanding the Asiatic fleet when the orders "capture or destroy the enemy's fleet" gave. him the first news of hositilities with Spain and sent him into Manila Blay for the! feat that won undying fame and had, far-reaching effect upon the position of the United States as a world power.

Washington.-Although Villa's op 'ations have injected confusing fac >rs into the situation in northern lexico and along the border, there is very indication that the Administra on is going forward with its plans ir early withdrawal of Pershing's ex odition and demobilization of the Na onal Guard. Officials here have insisted that it as impossible to set a definite date >r the troop movements because of ie uncertainty of transportation fa Ilties and because the situation at ie border and beyond constantly is lianging. It has been indicated early, however, that unless there as some unexpected development, 1 ershing's withdrawal and the return f the guardsmen would be ordered 'ithin a few (lays. The reports on Villa's new cam- F aign apparently have not disturbed f Ils determination. but they have 3mewhat bewildered officials here as ) the real situation and in the end Iay operate to hold up the orders ntil a more thorough investigation as been made. Army officers contend :at the Pershing force would be in better military position if with- 1 rawn and regrouped, but they are nxious to locate the Villa forces iore definitely before there is any merican movement. Border dispatches tranmitting ru 1ors that the guardsmen would be rdered home with in five days were eard by War Department officials Ilthout comment.

Sailed Under Danish Flag and Car ried Hay on Bridge to Conceal Armament. Rio Janeiro, Brazil.-It is consider ed certain here th'at the German raider which has been creating havoc among Entente shipping in the south Atlantic is the Moewe, the German sa-med raider which captured the Ap pam and sunk numerous Entente ships In Atlantic waters a year ago. The American Consul at Pernam buco has cabled the Embassy here confirming the landing of several Americans from vessels which fell victim to the r-aider, lie added that no American ships had been sunk by the German craft, and that all the American sailors landed were men tf-em the crews of foriegn- vessels., According to reports from an au thoritative source the Meowe is un derstood to have sailed, from Kiel under- the Danish flag car-rying a car go of hay on the bridge in order to conceal her ar-manent. W~hen last seen, the Moewe was painted black, with white markings. Hier armament included four torpedo tubes in service and several tubeg in reser've. She is believed to have carried a mine laying apparatus. The raider also carried a large number of auxiliai-y plates which would permit her commander to change the rppearaLce of the bidge at will. In addition she had collap sible funnels. The vessel now believed to be the Moewe was repaiintedl several times, and undeir the last coat of paint weire obseirved traces of the Danish flag which had been painted on the hull. S. L.
