divisions of his troops which Fierro and
nomiiiguez were to have led, under
him, into Mexico City.
Fierro, a close friend of Villa, has a
black record for cruelties practiced on
federals who fell into his hands and is
credited with killing the Englishman
.(teuton. Dominguez has also been
criticised for big summary method of
dealing with ' federal prisoners. Car

conspicuous under his prospective new
government would tend to prejudice
foreigners against it.

Mexico City, July 2.'!. There has
been an astonishing revulsion of feel
ing in favor of Americans here.
There were not only no signs today
of the hostility toward them which for
Home time preceded and continued for
weeks after the landing at Vera Cruz,
but they seemed extremely popular.
There was a feeling of some scureity
in the city for the first time since the
late President Madero 's death, and
plainly it was an immense relief to the
President Cnrbajal was in complete
control. Good order was being pre
served. The government charged that
stories of danger from the Zapatistas
were circulated only by a small group
of Huertistas. In fact, it was not be
lieved there was any likelihood of a
successful attack by General Zapata
tnd his followers.
The war, it was thought, was over.
The president has given orders for
the replacing of the statue of George
Washington, which was torn dovn dur
ing the anti-American riots, and the
newspapers were insisting that the per
son in possession of the effigy's arm.

turbance, return it immediately.
On the president 's authority, General
Iturbide, governor of the federal dis
trict, announced last night that an arm

visional government and the constitu
tionalists, preliminary to the re-establishment
of permanent peace.

certain promises to President CarbajaL
The latter has insisted that the lives of
federal troops must be protected.

The Salem public library was robbed
last night of $28.09 which had been col
lected in fines by the librarian and
left in the building. The robbers pried
up a window at the southwest corner
of the building, breaking the window
latch. The entire place was ransacked
and every drawer and file In the- li
brary turned out. There was but $5 In
the till and the rest of the amount was
hidden in small sums in different places
about the building where they had
been placed by the librarian to await
being taken to the bank. The thief
found every single cache and made his
escape with the entire amount.
The librnry was entered one year
ago last February in exactly the same
manner and robbed in the same way.
The librarian had intended to bank to
day, but the thief relieved her of any
and nil responsibility concerning the
funds. There is no clue to the robber.
The crime was committed between the
closing hour, 9 o'clock Inst night, and
6 o'clock this morning. The sheriff's
office was notified, but was unable to
throw any light upon the affair.

Vancouver, B. C, July 23. In the
harbor of Vancouver exactly two
months to a day, during which time
every trick known to the Indian mind

early this morning, and escorted by Ca
nadian cruiser Rainbow, lett the shores
of British Columbia, never to return
with such an expedition. Last night
just when it was believed everything
was settled and that the Hindus would
leave after the government had pro
visioned their steamer, came a flat re
fusal from the leader of the Sikhs to
leave this morning as arranged.
Mutiny again reigned aboard the
ship, and in their frenzy the Sikhs
threw half of the crew of Japaneses
on board the steamer overboard, where
they floundered until picked up by the

price of leaving, one chicken for each
man aboard for every day of tbereturn

At dawn this morning a government
tug went out to the Komngata and

This Is What He Intended to
Clean Up From Timber
Land Options
Cheerfully BrandedWitnesses
Who Testified Against
Him as Liars
Portland, Ore., July 3. "A cool
million or so," was the amount J. W.
Logan said he expected to make from
tho timber options he exacted from
those he located on the quarter sections
of the Oregon & California railroad
grant, during his testimony today in
the United States district court. Lo
gan, with E. J. Sellers and W. F. Mi
nurd are on trial charged with misus
ing the mails in the location of settlers
on the forfeited grant lands.
Vuited States Attorney Reames ask
ed him regarding the 300 or 400 op
tons that he hnd secured from appli
cants. Logan had answered that they
were probably in his trunk somewhere,
and following n wordy exchange, re
ferred Reames to his lawyer.
"Now, as a matter of fact," Reames
asked, "you expected to make a lot
of money out of tiioso options, didn't
"Oh, a cool million or so," Logan
replied in the mest careless manner.
"Now that would have been real
justice to tho people of Oregon for you
to have mado $2,000,000 off of them
after the settlors got it," sarcastically
queried the government attorney.
"Well, thoy would have received a
handsome profit themselves," answered
Logan judged that ho had taken 400
or 500 applications for locations on tho
grant lands.
Without a singlo exception Logan
branded as falsifiers those government
witnesses who had testified against
him. -

Testimony of First Wife Shows She
Has Keen Enmity for the Woman
Who Now Holds Her Place.
Paris, July 23. That the defense
would introduce expert testimony to
snow Editor Oaston Calmetto of "Le
Figaro" need not have died of the
wound Mme. Henrietto Caillaux inflict
ed on him if he had had competent med
ical attention, wns rumored today in
the courtroom where ex-Finance Min
ister Joseph Caillaux 'a wife was on trial
for murder.
The most olementary precautions, it
was asserted by those who circulated
this story, would have saved the ed
itor, and it was argued that Mme. Cnil
laux should not be held responsible for
the negligence of her victim's own
The courtroom was packed again to
day. Andre Vorvoort, formerly a reporter
for "Oil Bias" and now editor of a
small newspaper, whose name has fre
quently been mentioned in the testi
mony Already taken, was among to
day's witnesses.
Shortly before Caillaux 's second
marriage, ho said, the latter 's first wife
consulted him concerning the best meth
od of securing publication of. letters,
which sho declared probably would pro
voke a scandal on tho eve of his wed
dintf. This testimony had been denied in
advance by tho former Mme. Caillaux.
Bho wns recalled to the stand, how
ever, after Vorvoort had finishod his
story and repented the denial with much
emphasis, recited the details of her
marriage to Cailluux, told of their di

in the spectators' minds that a deep
animosity existed between the witness
and the present Mine. Caillaux, the
prisoner. The two women repeatedly
exchanged angry glances and once or
twico Mme. Caillaux seemed on the
point of interrupting the witness, but

Andre Lessier, a tax collector, testi
fied that he hud heard conservations in
the chamber of deputies which' led him
to believe that Caillaux 's enemies had
private doeumonts which they intended
to publish against him but he could not
remember Who the persons were who
mado tne remarks he referred to.
Barthou Recalled.
Ex-Premier Itarthou was again a wit

of Andre Vervoort, an ex-reporter for
the newspaper "Gil Bias," who declar
ed that she consulted him on the eve
of Caillaux 's second marriage relative

A Sensational Story.
Her second story was far more sen
sational than her first, constituting one
of the features of the heuring thus far.
After denying the truth of Ver
voort 's testimony, she asked permis
sion to read from a sheaf of notes she
carried in her hand. This was refused.
"I face the task," said the wit
ness, in explanation of her request, "of
breaking down a mountain of lies."
' ' You are not here to accuse any
one," said Fernand Labori, Mme. Cail

"But I am alone," answered the
witness, glancing piercingly at the
