JUAREZ, Mexico, Fob. 19.-Thomas T.
Edwards, United States consul hero, this
afternoon succeeded In seeing Gustav
Bauch, the American whom tho rebels
are trying on a chargo of being a spy.
Whereabouts of William S. Benton, tho
British subject, who was arrested last
night, could not bo learned. General
Villa said he was not locked up, but
mcanwhllo his .friends made a fruitless
search for him 'and his wife In El Paso
was suffering tho greatest anxiety.
Bauch, according to his sister, Mrs.
J. M. Patterson,- was born In New!
Iberia, La., and was a mere baby when
hia father, William Bauch, left that
city twenty-five years ago and came to
Eagle Pass, Tex.
Scnor Ramon, chief of tho rebel se
crct service, conducted the American
coi:sul and two reporters into the dllapl
dated prison whero a company of sol
dicrs Is quartered.
Tho visitors wcro led into a dark
anglo of the building, where they were
cautioned that tho prisoner was Incom
municado. Then from somcwhero out of
the deeper darkness beyond, like a rat
frcm Its hole, tho prisoner appeared.
His round fs.ee, fringed by a ring of
beard, waa a perfect picture of frlgh

Americans. Till then ho had no way of
knowing that he was not being brought

A rebel officer spoko sharply to htm

Tho young man blinked at tho fcoble
ray of light which penetrated from a
dusty pane, and a choking sound came
from Ills throat Then he replied to the
officer that ho understood.
Senor Itomon, explained that Bauch's
cose was still being heard and. that It
is the rule to hold prisoners incommuni
cado until decision la rendored.
Nowhere In Juarez could reporters find
an official to explain adequately tho
charges against the prisoner, but Senor
Ramon said that there was much docu

criminate him as a spy.

Ho Insisted that General Villa remove

Villa's answer was not satisfactory to

unburdened his mind of a variety 'of
grievances collected against rebels of the
various revolts of tho last three years,

Boards of Trade Are
Said to Be Cause, of
High Prices of Grain
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1?.-Charges that
Chicago and Duluth Boards ot Trade and
tho Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce
compose a combination In restraint of
trade In grain dealings and are respon
sible for high prices were filed in the
house today by Representative Manahan,
republican ot Minnesota, " with a resolu
tion for congressional investigation.
Manahan charged in his resolution
that it was generally believed that the
business of the Chicago Board of Trado
and Its operations were controlled by
memberships owned by a few large op
erators, particularly Armour, Pcavey, J.
Rosenblum, J. C. Shaffer & Co., and
Bartlett, Frazer & Carrlngton, and that
acting In concert with leading members
of the Minneapolis board they control
most ot thb terminal elevator facilities
and unlawfully control the price of wheat
to the farmer and tho country.
Tho preamble ot the resolution was a
voluminous Indictment of the three board
beginning with the statement that to their
activlttei might be charged the present
high cost ot living.
"The price of wheat to tho farmers, as
well as the cost ot flour to the consumer,"
said the resolution, "Is largely controlled,
by the board's acting in combination."
It charges that tho Chicago board con
trolls tho selling price of wheat, that
Minneapolis controls tho prices paid for
wheat from day to day and that the
Duluth board makes the price of wheat
for the northwest.
Tho resolution asked for a select com
mittee of seven members to investigate
the charges, ana also the grading of
wheat, operations In tho pit, the eelllns
of futures and other operations.
