WASHINGTON, Sept. 7. Declaring to
be false the rrporta of a bitter antl
AmerlCRii feeling In Mexico anil an organ
ized revolution against President Dia.
David E. Thompson, the American am
bassador, x has made, an exhaustive report
to the State department setting forth in
detail Information which could not bo con
veyed In his previous confidential dis
patches, lie has renewed his request, that
In compliance with the wlshe of Mexico'
president, tlili Rovernment should tuke
steps to suppress the Mexican revolution

Spanish a paper called "Regencracion."
neports are I ntrne.
lie contends that articles that have ap
peared In certain newspapers ot the United
States, discussing alleged dissatisfaction
with the administration of Fresident Dia
and asserting that an Insurrection of pos
sibly far-reaching consequences is incubat
ing, are wholly without foundation and of
Inestimable harm to Mexico. He charac
terise the trouble that already has oc
curred as nothing more thun small labor
riota. Mr. Thompson deplores the fact that
audi publications give "a most exaggerated
Importance" to the work of men who have
fled from Mexico and who continue to en
deavor to breed a spirit of unrest in that
country, and adds:
"If there should be any local disturbances
they will be handled rightly by the Mexi
can government. Such a thing ns a gen
eral uprising Is not to be seriously consid
ered." Dim Asks Favor. '
Numerous telegrams have been exchanged
between the State department and Ambas
sador Thompson In relation to the publish
ers of Regeneration In which the ambassa-
o? has suggested, that if these men could
dealt with as anarchists, Fresident Dlas
would feel a deep gratitude. The sugges
tion made by Mr. . Thompson followed In
terviews he had with President Pias in
which the latter expressed the earnest hope
that the United , States government could
take steps to prevent the further circulation
of the paper.
The ' Btate department Immediately ' re
ferred the dispatches of Mr. Thompson to
the Department of Justice wltk view to
ascertaining what measures might be taken
against the newspaper Regeneraclon or Its
publishers. In that department an Inves
tigation Is now proceeding, but no informs
'Jon can be had as to what form It 1s tak
ing. Junta to "Stand Pat."

H. L. Worthing of the electric workei-s wa
Informed by President Calhoun that the
linemen would be expected to work side by
side with recently employed strlkebreskers.
It I unlikely that th car men will be
called on strike again, but It Is possible
that the electrical worker, the foremen
and perhaps the railway constructor may
not go back to work.
Through Thomwall Mullally, President
Calhoun Issued a statement today voicing
his opinions. He said:
1 will not discharge any man except' Tor
cause. That has been my position right
along. There should bs no question about
It. The men ought to have understood this.
When the men went on a strike the United
Railways hired others to replace them, not
because it wanted to replace them, but
because It had to in order to run Its cars.
If these men now wish to remain In the
employ of the company they may do so. ,
However, the company has no quarrel
with unionism. It has always recognised'
the unions and believes In them.

eld Convention Deride Issue of
Veracity, the Loser to Retire
NEW YORK, Sept. 7.-ltoger C. Sullivan,
member from Illinois of the democratic
committee, tonight Issued a lengthy state
ment In which he replies to the recent at
tacks mode upon htm by Mr, Bryan. Tht
following Is an abstract of Mr. 8ulllvan'i
n hla Jefferson club banquet speech at
Chicago Tuesday evening William J.
Kryan again saw fit to make me tlm excuse
for exploiting hla new ambition to convert
the democratic party of the United 8laua
Into an autocracy with hlmnelf on the dic
tators throne. 1 leg ret that he lias done
so, as I would regret an Incident or ilr
cumatance tending toward discord in the
ir portions of Air. jtryan a epeecn mean
inythlng, they mean that he would rather
have his own way than have the democrat
elected to congress or any other office.
He has invited all Illinois democrats Hint
agree with him in his opposition to me to
bolt their ticket. If there are any demo
crats In Illinois who are disposed to act
on thla typically Brysneeque advice, many
of them unfortunately will be found in
congrneelonal districts which are close, but
In which, with united effort, we have a
good chance to elect democratic congress
men. If these districts send republicans
to the next house of representatives the
democratic party of the nation will have
Mr. Bryan to thank. As a democrat I
regret that Mr. ltryan rule-or-ryin dis
position has led him to make such misuse
of his Influence. . But Insofar as Mr.
Bryan's hanquet speech applies to me per
sonally, to my character, to my business,
to my associates, to my democracy and to
my political nets, I welcome the Issue, and
on that Issue 1 challenge Mr. Bryan to
the proof of his truthfulness, nis nnnesiy
and his sincerity that sincerity which h
boasts Is his political asset. I yield to
no man In my adherence to democratic
principles as laid down by the great
founder, Thomas Jefferson. Judged b
that standard. 1 Invite comparison of no
democracy with Mr. Bryan's.
Bryan's Friends Attacked.
Continuing! Mr. Sullivan scores Mr. Bryat
for the "company he keeps" and attacki
particularly the character of Theodort
Nelson, Judge Owen F. Thompson, Miuarc
Fillmore Dunlap and Henry T. Ralney.
These are the men endorsed by Mr. Bryat
In hi Paris Interview. Mr. Sullivan de
scribes them as Mr. Bryan's confident!
agenta In th purification of Illinois politics s
la Mr. Bryan an exception to the rult
that a man Is known by the company hi
Mr. Sullivan then continue:
Mr. Bryan has said: "By Innuendo thai
I, as an official of the Ogden Gas company
of Chicago, have secured government favor
and profit by Illegal or corrupt means.'
He harps on my connection with the Ogden
Qas company as if that connection were .
disreputable. The public press will show
thst the only offense thla corporation ever
committed was to reduce the price of gas.
Among my associates in that company
were Governor John P. Altgeld and Judjto
Thomas A. Moron of Chicago. Does Mr.
Bryan dare Impugn their memories?
Mr. Bryan was not honest and he was
not sincere when he commissioned Nelnon,
Thompson, Dunlap and Ralney to "purify"
Illinois politics and claimed morality el
his motive. He was not truthful when he
stood un In Chicago Tuesday evening to
explain nis position.
The first paragraph In Mr. Bryan' pect
on me and on the Illinois situation contalni
a deliberate untruth. Practically ever
succeeding paragraph contains either a de
liberate untruth, or an equivocation of tht
kind, that we expect only from the shifty
word-juggling pettifogger. Mr. Bryan sayi
he wrote me a letter asking me "to renlgr
In the Interests of the democratic party."
That is not true. Mr. Bryan knew it wai
not true when he said It. He never wrote
me a letter. He did write a letter to Judge.
O. P. Thompson, In which he told the Judgt
to tell me that be (Bryan) wanted me to
resign from the democratic national com
mittee. Denies Asking; Endorsement.
Mr. Sullivan then declares that Mr.
Bryan'a assertion that he held his seat on
th national commute by fraud wa re
futed two years ago at St. Louis by thes
national convention Itself and that he (Sul
livan) had not asked for an endorsement
from the state convention instead ot re
signing In "tbe Interest of the party," as
Mr. Bryan said he had. He continued;
Mr. Bryan says: "I 'examined Into his
(Sullivan's) conduct of the ripringfield con
vention before I took part in the attempt
to unseat him, and at the St.. Louis con
vention I had in writing a request for bis
repudiation signed by more than half the
delegates to the convention." That state
ment Is not true. Mr. Bryan knew it was
not true when he mad it.
Mr. Bryan' statement that he had In
writing a request signed by more than half
the delegate to the Springfield convention
la a statement that has been made before.
It waa made at the Bt Louis convention
and it truth was there challenged. Mr.
Bryan ha never substantiated It Willi
Mr. Bryan and hia associate In that
contest at St. Louis mado the statement
that some 6U0 delegate in the Springfield
convention had signed petition or letters
repudiating the action of the convention.
They never presented to the committee on
credentials of the national convention any
such number. They presented some. The
other aide at the same time presented tele
grams and affidavits certifying that nearly
all of the signatures presented by Mr.
Bryan and his associates were forgeries.
Tim discussion of that Springfield con
vention and Its action for Mr. Bryan's
side Is alwaes coupled with the innuendo
that th elements of the parly with lyhtc-h
I waa connected had perpetrated a lraud
by unseating hundreds of legally elected
delegates. That innuendo is false In in
spiration and false In the suggestion It con
veys. Falsehood Again Charged.
Mr. Sullivan then review the St. Louis
contests, agalu accusing' Mi Bryan of un
truthfulness and repeating that he did nol
seek endorsement at the hand of that con
vention and saying he did not attempt tc
link hi nume with that of Mr. Bryan.
He accuses Mr. Bryan with having advised
hi particular friends In Illinois to bolt
the democratic ticket and asks:
Is this the measure of Mr. Bryan' party
fealtjr? 1 this the way Mr. Bryan pro
poses to help elect a damoc ratio con
gress? Mr. Bryan says: "My political asset it
the confidence the people have Iu my sin.
cerlty." Mr. Bryan has twice led the
democratic party to defeat, the second a
worsn defeat t ian tlm first. if h it
proud of that evidence of the people's -confidence
In his rincerity he is welcome to
It. But Ills bciPt of sincerity merits fur
ther consideration. He Insinuates that 1
