AUSTIN. Tex., Nov. 17. Two captains
of Texas rangers today were ordered to
the border with instructions to prevent
any activity In Texas toward starting a
revolution In Mexico.
Theso movements were made after a
conference between Governor Colquitt and

have evidence that part of the prepare-

From a heretofore reliable source It
was learned that uencrai iteyes. now at

JUDGE OBJECTS TO PUBLICITY
Reporters Cautioned Not to Color

Too Much Notoriety
LINCOLN CENTER. Kan., Nov. 17.-
Twelve Jurymen, all subject to challenge,
sat .In the box when the case of Sherrlll
Clark, a wealthy merchant and brother
of Everett G. Clark, who already has
pleaded guilty; A. N. Slmms, a mill
worker, and John Schmltt, a farmer, was
called In the district court today. The
three are' charged with assault and bat
tery in connection with the tarring of
Miss Mary Chamberlain of Shady Bend,
Farmers from surrounding counties who
had driven as many as forty miles to
hear the "tarrin' ' case, and every citi
zen who could "knock off!' from his work

the Judge himself with difficulty got in

women or children be allowed in the

ticeably absent and the men had the
court room to themselves.
. Judge Objects- to Colored Stories
Judge Graver passed around A "quiet
tip" to the pewspaper reporters that it
would be distasteful to the rfourt to have
to exclude them from the oourt room for
sending colored stories to their papers.
The man who carried the message said

The first panel ot thirty-four talesmen
having been exhausted in securing the
twelve men In the box, a new venire ot
100 was summoned during the night and
early hours today and was In attendance
when court convened. The defendants
are asking each venireman If he would
consider the separate guilt of each de
fendant, although the three are being
tried together. Unwillingness to do this
results in challenge for cause.
The possibility of securing a Jury be.
fore night led the prosecution to declare
that Miss Chamberlain would take the
stand tomorrow and tell her story. Ac
cording to Miss Chamberlain three men
did the actual work of tarring, while the
remainder of the moo looked on. One
man held her prostrate, another held the
bucket of tar and a third smeared the

DENVER, Colo., Nov. 17,-Gertrude
Gibson Patterson, who will be placed on
trial next Monday on the charge of mur
dering her husband, Charles A. ratter-
son, has written a biographical sketch
for the use of her attorney, O. N. Hilton,
In which she accuses Emll Strouss, the
millionaire clothing manufacturer of Chi
cago, of having ruined her life and of
having bribed Patterson to marry her.
She and Strouss, she avers, lived to

-'Oh!" she moaned, "It will breaX my
poor mother's heart to learn that I was
never married to Emll Strouss nor di

The biography read, In part, as fol
lows: "When I was 18 years old I went with
my sister, Mrs. Farnsham, and her hus
band to Chicago. We stopped at the
Auditorium hotel, where a friend of my
sister Introduced me to Strouss. He was
much older than I, for at that time my

but he was very kind. He asked me to

Mrs. Patterson says that they cor
responded for five months, at the end
of which- time, responding to a cable

York and, in company with her supposed
benefactor, went Immediately to Culcago,

ment to the Sherman law, Senator Cum
mins referred to the decroe In the to
bacco company case authorising the re
organisation of four companies and called
attention to the announced report of the
Deportment of Justice not to Interfere
with the reorganization.
"I do not believe the organisation of
four companies will restore competition,
but in the minds of the authorities, It
is apparently In harmony with the anti

my opinion the anti-trust law will not
maintain competition and it ought to be
amended and strengthened."
Senator Cummins referred to a pos
sible limitation of the capital stock ot
corporations, a deforcing of manufactur
ing business from sources of supplies and
a separation of business and transporta
tion elements as changes In the law would
lead to better competition.
Mr. Martin said the Anti-trust league
of which he Is secretary, proposes to
fight the dissolution decree In the Ameri

He declared that succeeding officials of
the government in the last twenty-one
