WASHINGTON. June 27.-Snntor Fall
gave the senate Us first official Intima
tions of the- report of the committee
which Investigated the Iadero revolution
In Mexico, In a speech today urging the
repeal of the law Of 1912, which per
mitted former President Taft to forbid,
by proclamation, shipment of arms
across the border:
As : member of that committee, Sen
ator Kali declared he was convinced that
not an American dollar was used In
financing the Madero revolt. He. be
lieved It had been financed. In part at
least, with J35d,000 which Gustav Madero,
since executed, had secured by bonds
fmm the French-Bpnnlsh bank of Paris,
to build the Mexico Central railroad In
By withholding exportation of arms to
the revolutionists' after Madero came Into
power, Fall declared the United States
had earned the enmity of W per cent of
the Mexican population with the result
that Americans there had been held for
ransom and outraged.
Mr. Fall told the senate It was his In
formation that after Madero came Into
office the Mexican government relm-bi'-aid
him In large sums for the monoy
rpent for the uprising and that a portion
was returned to the bondholders of the
railroad for which Gustav Madero raised
a Iflrge sum. ' The railroad never was
built, he said.

San Ulcgo, Federal oGvernor Francisco
Garcia of Sonora, Informed the Mexican
consul here that General Ojeda had
fallen back to Guaymas and was pre
pared to give the rebel state troops battle
at that place.
Despite Governor Garcla'a assurance,
Mexican federal agents were disposed, to
believe Huerta forces had sustained a
severe blow In the week's fight about
Oitlz and Santa Rosa. It was confidently
anticipated that he would sweep north
to the International line, and the dis
patch Btatlng he was back In Guaymas
destroyed all hope of victory.
Ilrbels Capture Arms.
DOUGLAS, Arli:., June 27. General

NEW YORK, June 27. The call of the
north will separate three bridal couples
when the Crocker land expedition salts

No Bar Raised Against Confederate

AVI II Have to Do a Stroke
of Work.
GETTYSBURG, Pa., June 27. That the
stars and bars as well as the stars and
stripes will appear at the big camp of
veterans during the anniversary cele
bration was Indicated today by an an
nouncement from the officers of the Anni
versary commission that "there Is nothing
to prevent the wearers of gray from
bringing along their battle flags."
At the same time, however, It was
said that the flag of the confederates
would not be used In any official
decorations over which the commission
has control. Residents of Gettysburg
and union veterans already here are ex
tending a royal welcome to all arriving
confederate veterans.
The town Itself never has been so gaily
decorated. Every business block Is cov
ered with the national colors, and prac
tically ever home displays at least one
flag. The stars and bars appear at a
number of places, while the use of both
the blue and the gray Is a favorite method
of decoration at many buildings. Large
numbers of both union and confederate
are much In evidence. The town is
gay with martial music, many of the
veterans having brought their fifes, drums
and bugles, and the calls of wartime
days are sounded through the streets,
In some Instances by the very men who
did the same thing during the Exciting
days of the Gettysburg ' campaign halt
a century ago.
Finishing touches were put on the
camp. Equipment was distributed to the
five thousand tents, all of which are now
up and everything Is In readiness for the
60,000 old soldiers expected to attend the
celebration next weok.
All Arrnm-rmrnti Complete.
"We are thoroughly prepared and have
the entire situation well In hand," de
clared Major Normoyle, In command at
the camp. Every old soldier will find
things 'In readiness for him when he
comes here. He will be met at the train
and shown the location of his tent If
he Is not able to carry his baggage some
one will be here to do It for him. He will
not have to do a stroke of work, not even
fill the water buckets In his tent.
Each of the four large sections com
posing the camp will be under the direct
supervision of a company of regulars.
One of company of engineers and three
of Infantry will have charge of the work
of guarding these sections, answering the
calls of the veterans and otherwise giv
ing attention to their needs.
Many of the camp kitchens were put In
working order today and smoke could be
seen rising over the site, a mile and a
half square. The twelve ovens, with a
capacity of 60,000 olaves of bread a day,
were tested and found to be satisfactory,

One of the latest arrivals Is Rev. W.' F.
Hubbel of Los Angeles, Cal., who was
severely wounded at the battle of Gettys
burg, and who made the trip across the
country to attend the anniversary. One
of his missions In homing, he said, was
to find and express his appreciation to
the nurse, who, with other women of
the tow'n, did so much after the battle to
alleviate his sufferings and that of his
wounded comrades.
Federal BUI l Passed.
WASHINGTON, June 27. Representa

lution unanimously passed.

of New York Is the lucky winner of the
government award for supervision of the
building of the Lincoln memorial monu
ment to be erected In Potomac park here.
Mr. Bacon's compensation for superin
tending the work will be approximately
))00,000, or six per cent of the total amount
expended on the monument. Congress
appropriated 12,000,000 for the work, but

Pistol Pocket for
Skirt is the Latest
NEW YORK, Juno 27. The question of
tho proper fit for women's skirts was a
fcaturo of discussion at the National
Ladles' Tallprs and Dressmakers' conven
tion, vvhlch began here today with dele'
gates present from nil parts of the
country, It appeared a general opinion
that narrow lines-would continue -to Tiold
popular, with the trouser effect still a
favorite among the ultra-fashionable.
The New York delegates were firm for
skirts a yard around, while Chicago rep.
resentatlves Insisted upon a little mom
leeway, a yard and' a quarter with two
slashes, one at the .front and one at the
back. Louisiana delegates were the most
conservative, sticking for a two-yard
skirt, no slashes, and shirtwaists In
stead of a three-piece suit.
The pistol pocket was an innovation
credited to the Chicago tailors and
seemed to be generally accepted as a
good Idea. One or two patch pockets wero
suggested, and, If women did not care for
the pistol, they might carry their powder
puff in one and their purse In the other.

ing of the administration currency bill,
Mr. Drake says:
"It Is probably the most extraordinary

of the politicians to place the banking
and commercial Intrests of the country
absolutely tn their hands. It Is proposed
to establish twelve regional banks and
the national banks of the country will bo
forced to contribute the necessary capital
therefor. The ultlmato control of all of
these banks will be vested In a board of
seven men, all appointed by the presi

the language of the bill, 'At least one

which will probably be above 1100,000,000
