permitted to go to the Mexican fed

situation, officials point out, is the re?
sult of the neutrality resolution pass?
ed by congress by which munitions of
war are allowed to go only to the es?
tablished government of Mexico.
Th?? complaints against the special
agents referred by the president to
the attorney general charged, it is
that Mexican Consul Lorente at El
Paso. Tex., practically directed op?
erations of the American agents and
that there was too close relationship
between the federal agents of Mexico
and those of the United States.
Officials declare the protest grows
out of the energy of the special agents

trality resolution and that much of
the critical testimony came from a
special agent who was permitted to
resign. it is denied that any im?
proper influence is exerted by Mexi?

Is said, cooperate In treating viola?

a natural result of the resolution by
which arms go to the federals only.

Thursday afternoon about six

automobile driven by Dick Bradford
and a buggy driven by the young son
of Mr. A. B. BtUCky, the front wheels
of the buggy being broken as a result
of the accident.

lagher, Jim Martin and Arthur
Haynsworth. Mr. and Mrs. H. W.

and young Stuckey were in the buggy.

carelessness of the driver of the ma?
chine who did not turn out. Occu?
pants of the car stated that the street

the car proved unsuccessful in pre?
venting the accident.
