ter they were driven out of Ojlnaga, Mex
by Genera! Francisco Villa's rebel forces,
arrived In Kl Paso today and were for
mally Interned at tho Fort Illlsa military
reservation. They are to be held by this

of prisoners ot war,
Arriving In ten trains from Marfa, Tex.,
the refugees were taken Immediately to
Fort Dllss, where they were put In a
camp enclosed by a barbed wire fence
and guarded by United Stutes troop,
The bringing of the refugees hero re
sulted from a series of dramatic events
In recent Mexican history, These events
Included the evacuation of Chihuahua
seven weeks ago by General Salvador
Mcrcado's federal army, ts flight across
the desert to OJInaga. on the border, the
besieging of OJInaga by the rebels, the
retreat of the federals Into United mates
territory at Presidio, Tex., and the pic
turrsquo march afoot of the federals over
the sixty-five mile mountain trail to the
nearest railway station at Marfa.
Mtrfado First to AIIkM.
The first of tho refugees to step pff the"
train waa General Mercado,
"I am completely dumbfounded by the
Unusual position we aro In," said General
Mercado. "It Is something unprecedented
to have, a whole army division Interned
on foreign soil. We are grateful to tho
United States for tho asylum afforded
us and for the attention shown my sold
iers. I hope tho world will understand
that our flight to this country was on
grounds of humanity; to save the Jives of
women and children aa well aa of aoldleis
who had ran out of 'ammunition. Iho
rebels would have massacred us. What
Is to become of u I don't know- We
shall wait and sec."

General Mercado told Colonel Perkins
that hq Mexican poldlera would do every
thing In their power to show their gnvti-

dered all the refugees to dig ditches and
help put up the 1,000 or moro tents.

Daniel J. Tobln. president of the Inter

recent teamsters' strike,
"It's a good thing," said Mr. Tobln.
"that your convention meets In January
instead of December. Tou could not have

That's tho kind ot a pity tilts Is. It's a

Twin Cities Present
Rival Claims for
New Reserve Bank
CHICAGO, Jan. M.-IUval claims ot
Minneapolis and St. Paul to be the loca
tion ot the regional bank expected to be
established In the Twin Cities were ur
gently presented to Secretaries McAdoo
and Houston at the federal reserve bank
hearing here today. The arguments of
the Minneapolis bankers wero based
chiefly on the dominance ot that city In
the grain Industry ot the northwest and
Its larger banking figures. St. Paul
pointed to the location there ot the fed
eral offices and ot Its position as fos
tering the live stock and diversified farm
ing Interest of It territory.
John J. Flanagan, president of the Na
tional stock yards ot South fit. Paul,
caused laughter when he declared after
giving live stock statistic, "and St. Paul
always has been a .great democratic city,
If that has any bearing."
"It has not," asserted Mr. McAdoo as
soon aa tho laughter had subsided. "That
Is the last fact that would have any
bearing. This Is an economic question,
not a political one."
"It Is so far from having any bearing
that tho statement wu an Improper one
and should havo never been made In this
hearing," said Mr. Houston.
P. A. Chamberlain, opening for Min
neapolis, gave Minnesota, the Dakota?,
Montana and Washington as the logical
northwest regional territory.
John It. Mitchell of St. Paul left off
Washington, but Included northern Wis
consin. The attitude ot the secretaries
was stated by Mr, McAdoo when he said
to Mr. Chamberlain.
"You nre making an argument as to
the relative merits of St. Paul and Min
neapolis. We want to know where a
bank should be located best to serve this
district, not where it would bo of best
local service. We want to know simply
what Is best for the elongated district
you mention. It seems to ua that a bank
located In cither city would servo aa
"Who handles the lumber business?"
asked Mr. McAdoo of A. It. Chamberlain.
"Is it financed at Seattle, Minneapolis,
8t. Paul or Chicago, or where?"
"Minneapolis finances the whole region,"
Tho hearing adjourned after bankers
from Indianapolis, St. Joseph, Mo., and
Springfield, 111., filed request to be In
cluded In the Chicago district. Mr. Mc
Adoo and Mr. Houston will open the St.
