EL PASO, Tex.. Feb. 20. A mass meet
Ins was- called today to be held here
tonight In Cleveland square, protesting
ngnlnst the execution or murder of Will
iam S. Benton, a British subject and one
ot the moist prominent foreign residents
In northern Mexico, by General Fran
clsco Villa, head of the rebel forces.
Resolutions were drawn up In the nft
crnoon accusing tho State department of
suppressing th reports ot Its own con
suls, of deliberately mlslea-lng the
American people as to actual conditions
In Mexico nnd demanding that congress
call on the state department for Cull
records of nllcged crimes and. outrages.
Thcro Is little doubt that they will be
adopted If tho meeting Is he The chclf
of police, I, N. Davis, said he would
prevent the meeting. Late tonight tho
gathering had. not been held, but the
committee In charge has determined to
hold It In a theater.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. -.Secretary
Bryan after a cabinet conference, 6r
dcred an Immediate Investigation of the
killing of W, S. Benton, tho English
ranch owner, at Juarez.
In communicating to the British am
bassador the news of tho death ot Ben
ton, Secretary Bryan added that ho hp1
ordered a thorough Investigation through
American Consul Edwards at Juarez and
Consul Letcher at Chihuahua.
Pending the result of the Inquiry thcro
Is every disposition on tho part ot of
flclals to maintain a judicial attitude and
await tho production of evidence.
The facts so far developed have been
reported to the British foreign office by
Ambassador Spring-Bice. It wai said at
tho embassy- today that thq action pf tha
State department had been sratlfylnaly
prompt and througlw- -v
U. Aot. o. ninuie, Claimed.
It was pointed ou that tho American
Fovcrnment cannot be hold responsible i
In any senso for Benton's death. While !
tho State department has undertaken to
extend protection to their subjects In
Mexico where necessary, this has been
done entirely by c&ilrtesy and not as a
matter of International right. The situa
tion of the British In Mexico Is precisely
tho same as that ot tho Spnnlurds whom
the United States government has tried
to protect in the face of threats of whole
pale killings,-and for failure of Its effort
it cannot be legally held responsible.
Under normal conditions the British
Eovcrnmcnt would look to General Huerta
for redress, but his authority does not
extend lito northern Mexico, and at pres-1
cnt there is vno disposition to eMona rec
ognition to Villa.
Although It will be for tho British for
eign office to decide what shall be dona
alter Investigation establishes tho facts
In the Benton case, the understanding .1"
that ono Immediate result will bo formal
warning by tho British government to all
Its subjects In tho country now occupied
by constitutionalists to abandon their
ranches and places of business and re
pair to a placo ot safety.
Such action will bo taken on the atl
tudo that British subjects aro no longer
tafe In the country controlled by Villa.
EL PASO, Tex., Feb. 20.-Vllliam S.

of Great Britain. Is dead. The death ot

LOS ANGELES. Cal., Feb. 3X Tho will
by which Frank H. Holyoko, a lumber
man of Bangor, Me., left .the bulk ot a
H00.0W estate to two nieces, Madeline
and Marjorlo Holyoke, was broken to
day by a Jury In tho superior court, by
a cloven to ono verdict, tho Jury decided
that Holyoko was of unsound mind when
ho made the will JUBt prior to his death
In Pasadena In November, 1911.
Tho will was contested by Sydney
Archibald Holyoke, a son of the lumber
man, now resident In Milwaukee, who
was cut off with a bequest of 1100.
Tho executors of tho estate announced
that an appeal In behalf ot the Misses
Holyoko would be filed immediately.
Third for Widow.
If the verdict stands In spite of tho
prospective appeal, Holyoko'a widow, Mrs.
Cora Holyoke. will recelvo one-thira 01

though under theterms of the will In

with but $1,000. The remaining two-thrlds
would go to Sydney" -Jlolyoko and his
brother, Harry of Boston, who testified
during tho contestt hat his present In

System Carry Seeds
of Its Own Decay?
WASHINGTON. Feb. 20.-Dpes tho
monopolistic system contain In Itself tho
seeds of Its own decay?
That question Commissioner Jose Davlcs
of tho bureau of corporations, declared In
his annual report, .made public today, a
federal Investigation now under way,
hopes to answer.
In a rovlow ot a working program for
tho bureau, Commissioner Davlcs points
out that aside from an economic study of
tho truBt question, retail price mainten
ance Is ono of the questions to bo taken
up. Trusts, their efficiency and reform,
however, aro to comprise the principal
work for tho coming year. Commissioner
Davles discussed tho monopoly question
nt length, saying in part:
"The question Is whether the trust
form of organization Is really efficient.
It It bo found that smaller competitive
units In Industry can produce commodi
ties moro cheaply, or even as cheaply aB
monopolistic units, and t)iat they have
other and greater advantages than thoso
claimed for the monopolistic or trust sys
tem, then tho problem Is' finally settled In
favor of the competitive system, and tho
chief argument for the regulation of
monopoly Is destroyed. This Is a scien
tific question of fact and It Is the plan
of .the bureau to Investigate this ques
tion. ' "Many large combinations have failed
and' demonstrated their economic Inefficiency.-
Combinations which have, ob
tained control of the market, and.lt Is
admitted, 'have prospered, but .this is al
leged to be due to their monopolistic
position nnd not to superior efficiency."

churges by tho United Mlno Workers of
America against tho national guard,
made from tlmo to time since tho begin

who Investigated tho alleged attack and

The testimony of Captnln Smith ' was
n signal for a general attack upon'lhe

now In session In London.
A formal motion to omit the word
