TO SETTLE VILLA-

Ammunition, Control of Rail

Are Demanded by Villa
Torrcon, Mexico, July 4. The confer
ence which it is hoped will settle all
differences between Generals Carranza
and Villa formally opened in tho Banco
le f'oahnila building here today.
Villa was represented by General J.
Isabel Robles, Pr. Miguel Silva and
Manuel Bonilla. The delegates for
General Gonzales, the rebel east coast
commuuder, were generals Antonio and
Jjftzaro Villarenl and Cesario Castro.
General Obregon, in command of tho
west coast, telegraphed that he was
Hcnding three envoys also but did not
give their names.
Nobody appeared directly for Gen
eral Carranza but Gonzales and Obregon
announced that they supported him, so
it was inferred that their emissaries
would care for his interests, making it
unnecessary 1'or him to send separate
representatives.
Assuming tho Gonzales and Obregon
envoys to bo as loyal to Carrauza as
they professed to be, this gave the lat
. tor six of the nine delegates presont.
There waa of course - the. possibility,
however, that Tilla would refuse to be
bound by any arrangoment which gave
him materially less than he demands.
Ammunition, control of the railroads in
northern Mexico, fuel to run the locomo
tives and provisions for his men, his
supporters said he absolutely must have
or his campaign against Mexico City
could not go on.
Asked for a statement Villa himself
mid: "I do not want to discuss the
situation until the conference submits
its findings. I hope this controversy j
will be settled satisfactorily so that we
may resume our advance on Quertato
and Mexico City."
The general added that the split in
the rebels' ranks had resluted in re
newed activity on the federals' part.
At today's "meeting only preliminary
business was discussed, pending the ar
rival of General Obregon's representa
tives. Colonel Ronue Carza. head of th
m;i;t.-r 1.;hi.n1 nf the nnrtlmrn divis-d

JOURNAL MAN DOES
MOTORCYCLE STUNT
Jumps the Sidewalk and Climbs the
Steps of a Residence on His Machine
Which Dies Exhausted at the Door.
The only renl-and-only "Motorcycle
Mike" is a Salem boy by the name of
R. V. Sefton, the quick-service em
ploye of The Journal. Sefton has a
record for climbing fences, ladders and
most every sort of an incline with his
motorcycle, but his latest Btunt occur
red last Wednesday when he mounted
the side veranda of Dave G. Drager'a
house on Seventeenth street and calm
ly knocked the panels out of the door
with his gas wheel. -
It seems that Sefton was unable to
work the throttle on his motorcycle as
he was rounding the corner at Seven
teenth and State Btrects. Not having a
great desire to hit tho curb broaasido,
and finding it impossible to "get in the
clear" at the speed he was going, the
rider took a flying leap over tho curb
ing and, still unable to bring tho mo
torcycle to a halt, sped through somo
rose bushes growing along the parking
and took a strr-ight shoot down Mr.
Drager'a lawn. Sefton exerted every
effort in the attempt to stop his wheel,
but it ept chugging away. The
plucky rider stayed with the machine,
however, and it finally arrived at the
side steps of Mr. Drager's dwelling,
which were six feet high. Up tho steps
Sefton guided the motorcycle and, af
ter bursting the panels out of the door,
he fell off and the busy much i no died
in its tracks, evidently exhausted from
the lively run.
Sefton was not hurt, the machine
safe and sound, and Mr. Drager's side
door considerably smashed up were tho
results. Sefton lugged his wheel back
into the street, gave it a few jabs in
the ribs, and went his way.
Mr. Drnger stated yesterday that he
didn't mind having callers, but he ab
solutely cannot get used to them bring
ing their rifcs in the house.
TWO CHECK ARTISTS

Alfred Johnson and H. II. Oilman,
two bad check men, were taken ,to tho
penitentiary this morning by Sheriff

son was arrested Thursday of this week
and immediately taken before the grand
jury, which found a true bill against
him. He expressed the wish yesterday
to enter a plea of guilty to the charge
of obtaining goods under false pretenses
but would not plead guilty to a forgery
charge. His attorney pointed out that
Johnson merely offered the check in
payment for the goods and said at that
time that if the check was not accepted
he would not purchase a suit of clothes
in addition to the shoes that he had
bought.
It was a fine distinction between ob
taining goods under false pretenses
and offering a forged check for pay
ment but the difference in sentences
to these charges is in the case of one
from one to five years and on a forgery
chargo the sentence is from two to 20
years. The only witness against John

When the job of arresting this huije

ly familiar with the methods of serving
civil warrauts upon corporations, but

OECLARATION
OF INDEPENDENCE
"I Consider It Patriotic to Re
spect Country Honor More
Highly Than Prosperity"
THE MEXICAN PEOPLE
NEVER HAD A LOOX-IN
Our Flag Represents Justice
and Right to Other People
as Well as to Ourselves
l'hiladelphia, July 4. President Wil
son was the principal figure in the
Fourth of July celebration here today
and his speech was by far its most im
portant feuture.
The president delivered it from tho
grandstand in Independence Square,
standing before tho old colonial table
nn which the Declaration of Independ
ence itself was sights. An audience
of thousands heard it.
"The Declaration of Independence,"
said tho chief executive, "was not a
Fourth ol July oration. It was declar
ation tf war. It wus a very specific
document concerning the business of
thj day not the business of our day.
"Tho declaration means nothing to
us unless we append it to what wo
think our liberty consists of. We must
translate it to fit -uv conditions. If
we would revitalize it, we must fill it
with n bill of particulars for 1914."
Thea the president proceeded to fur-
uisU "the bill of particulars" of which
he gpoke, He denlt f ir!it with the MW
currency law
"Bad Law" Proves Good.
It was universally admitted." he
said, "that tho banking system of this
country needed to be changed. When
we sinned io cnange it we met witn
hardly anything but criticism and op
position from the bankers. But as soon
as the act waa passed there was uni
versal applause from them. If it waa
wrong the day before it was passed,
why was it right after it had passed!"
Next the speaker came to Mexico.
"What," he asked, "are we going
to do with the influence and power of
this nation!
"If we used it for our own aggran-
mil-mem, ii woum mean tnat we ex
pected other countries to suffer what
we did in 1776.
"There is none more interested than
I in the future of America's business,
but if American enterprise in foreign
c6untries, and especially in countries
which are unable to resist us, takes the
shape of imposing upon the masses of
their people, it ought to be stopped.
"You know what a big problem there
is in Mexico. Eighty-five per cent of
the people have never had a look-in
in the affairs of their government. Do
you suppose that circumstance has not
been in my thought!
Honor Demanded Tolls Treaty.
"When Americans once know what
is at stake in Mexico, they will know
what ought to be done there.
"I would be asliumed of this flag"
nnd the president pointed to the stars
and stripes "if it were permitted to
do anything outside America that we
would not permit it to do here.
"I consider it .patriotic to respect
the country's honor more highly than
its prosperity.
"The Panama canal tolls treaty may
have been a mistake, but its meaning
was unmistnkable. Honor demanded
that we sacrifice something to show we
knew what that meaning was.
"I do not think it hurts any one
seriously. I am not enthusiastic for
subsidies or monopolies, but I am en
thusiastic to keep 'America 'a name un
sullied. "Popularity is not always patriot
ism. It is patriotic to serve the coun
try by not selling nur souls.
Not a Holiday in '78.
"The Fourth of July, 17"i, was not
a holiday. Those men knew that if
j t,,e.v f"'11 ihey KOnll he hanged for
treason, but they knew the way to
: success was to show they were not
; afraid of anyone except God and his
i judgments.
. "If I did not believe that the moral
; judgment would be final in the minds
i of m,'n 08 in the minl of God. I would
I erty.
j "To drink of this original fountain
f liberty is to renew the blood in a
man's veins,
"My dream is that as the world
comes to know America better, it also
will drink of this fountain and receive
: from America moral strergth."
I The president arrived in l'hiladelphia
' from Washington at 10:30 a. m. and
j left on the return trip at 12:20 p. m.
AUTHORITIES THINK
THE WIFE IS GUILTY
Doctor's Wife la Watched and the
Officers Think She Did the Shooting
While Prompted by Jealousy.
Freeport, N. Y., July. 4. Mrs. Ed
ward Carman, wife of the physician in
whose office Mra. William Bailey was
shot to death through a window Tues
day night, was under strict surveilance
in her home today.
The authorities made no attempt to
conceal the fact that they suspected
her, ana Mrs. Carmen understood it per
fectly. She remained perfectly calm,
however, and apparently had no fears
for the future. She waa given to un
derstand that, if she tried to leave
homo, she would be arrested, not on a
murder charge but as an important wit
ness. Before the coroner' yesterday after
noon, Mrs. Carman denied the slightest
knowledge. of the mnrdor, that she was
in the least jealous of Mrs. Bailey or
that she had ever seen her before her
death.
Hundreds of curious outsiders were
in Freeport today gazing at the Car

euy witn villagers on the street cor

locked in a north end lodging house
room for a week while they were syste
matically stripping him of his money
through securing his signature to

Hmall, in a pitiable condition, was
removed to the emergency hospital.
SALEM CELEBRATED.
With stores cloned and the inhabitants
of the city scattered to the four corners
of the compass in search of recreation
and opportunity to celebrate the glor
ious Fourth in a sane or an insane way
Salem is more like a deserted city than
anything else. Compared with its usual
hustling streets, the silence of tho
morgue reigns while only a few who
have to remain at the post of duty to
keep tho wheels running smoothly wend
their ways through the devious paths
of the municipality.
Automobiles, motorcycles, trains, both
steam and electric, and canoes, took the
people from tho city to the haunts of
nature or to Other places where patriotic
citizens gather to make the eagle scream
an ) shatter the air with bursting bombs.
Large numbers of Halem people went
to Eugeno this morning on the 9 o'clock
train. Three coaches were loaded to the
guards with pleasure seekers. Ninety
left for Albany, 00 for Woodburu. and
about 200 for Portland.
Silver ('reek Falls took a large num

Disaffection Among Troops
Threatens Disaster to
President Yuan
SIX THOUSAND MEN
REVOLT AND LEAVE
White Wolf Has Big Force
and Loots Defenseless
Cities Sans Resistance
Shanghai, July 4. What was all
along suspected hero is proved by lnt
est advices to have been true tho re
cent looting of Knlgan, 125 miles north
west of Pekin, was the result of an
army mutiny,
Disaffection among tho government
troops was regarded, hero as a very
ominous sign for President Yuan Mii
Kai'g regime. There have been ru
mors for some time that the army's in
ability to put down tr.c White Wolf
revolt in central nnd northwestern
China was due to constant wholsnlu do
sertions of the soldiers to the White
Wolves' ranks.
Definito news that similar or worse
conditions prevailed among the troops
in Pekin 's vicinity wus looked on as
giving tho situation a still graver as
pect. Though it was stated that President
Yuan had replaced tho mutinous, gar
rison with a fresh forco from Pekin, re
gained control and executed 150 of the
mutineers, It was clear that a large
body must bo still out of hand and
probably roaming the north as a band
of well-armed and disciplined brigands,
since at least 0000 men revoltod and
none had returned to duty and only a
comparatively small number waa ac
counted for as having been killed.

WOLF GANG
TWO BOYS DROWN AT
ALBANY LAST NIGHT
Pulmotora - Bushed to Albany From
Salem But All Efforts to Resuscitate
the Lads Wars Futile.
Life is the most precious thing in the
world and that is the reason why auto
mobiles from alem and Eugene rushed
pulmotora with all speed to Albany yes
terday evening iu an effort to save the
lives of the two sons of L. T. Shipley,
government architect in ch -go of the
construction of the federal building
there, who were drowned in the Cala
pooia river. But in spite of the fact
that the pulmotor was rushed from here
to Albany in 45 minutes by John
Mauror, proprietor of tha Maurer gar
age, D. A. Wright and Dave Pugh, oper
ator of the pulmotor, all efforts to re
suscitate tho two lads were fruitless.
Aoel Shipley, agod nine years, was
wading in the lalapooia river at Albany
when he stepped into a deep hole and
went under. Edward Shipley, awed 11,
when he saw his brother bo under hero
ically went to the rescue and as a result
both are doad as neither could swim.
The bodies were recovered after an
hour's search. Grappling irons wero
used and by this means they were re
covered. A high powered automobile from Eu
gene also brought a pulmotor but whon
it arrived it was evident that the lifo-
spark had fled from the older boy. Tho
Salem machine was tried on the young
er lad, who was recovered 15 minutes
after going down, but without avail.
It was a wild race over the rough
country roads on tho part of tho Salem
men. John Maurer, who took a new
machine, drovo it with such speed that
the top was jarred looso so that it fell
by the roadside to bo picked up later.
Tho men returned yesterday evening
about 10::i(). Mr. Shipley was profuse
in his expressions of gratitude to all
who had made such heroic attempts to
save the lives of his sons.
BUILDING WRECKED;
SANE JULY FOURTH
New York. July 4. At least three
persons wore killed and a score were
iujurcd today in an explosion which
literally scooped out the three upper
floors of a six-story brick tenement
nt the comer of Lexington avenue and
103rd street.
Besides the threo corpses recovered,
it was feared others were still buried
in the ruins, which the firemen wero
searching.
Tho police attribute tho explosion to
the premature bursting of a Fourth of
July bomb which thoy said Artheur
Carron, termed by them as an annrchist
agitator, wns manufacturing in the
building.
The known dead wero Caron himself,
his fiancee, a girl knowa 'i1y as An
gelina, and Mrs. Mary Chebei!
The bodies wero identified by ( aron's
room mate, Michael Murphy, who
miraculously escaped, -laving f dd who
the victims were, he disappear.) I. Tho
police were seeking him to furnish them
with further details.
Caron 'b body, torn to shreds, was
found three stories below the sixth
floor room he occupied.
On the roofs of adjoining buildings
there were olso found three cartridges
loaded with lead slugs which Chief
Egan of the bureau of combustibles, be
lieved wore part of tho bomb.
The fneinent was packed at the lime
of the explosion and tho officers were
amazed that there wero not more
deaths. Tho tenants were mostly
foreigners. Wild with terror at ill.) ex
plosion they swarmed into the street
many of them unclad, many of them cut
from flying glass.
