dered or outraged duriiiR tho last three,
years of revolution In Mexico were laid
before the senate today by Senator Fall,
republican, of New Mexico, In the course
of a speech In which he urged armed
Intervention not for war, but for pro
tection of lioneombatants and assailed
the administration's policy.
Senator Fall'u list gave names, dates
and circumstances gathered- from his
own sources. Tho Ucnton, Vergara and
Bauch Killings and the death, of tho fif
teen Americans In tho Cumbre tunnel are
Included In those since March' 4, 1913.
Secretary Hryan, when ho heard of
Senator Fall's charges, said ho would
make no statement untll.he had read all
the senator's speech and would, for tho
present, leave tho administration's de
fense to senators.
Senator Fall declared charges that
selfish motives actuated him ih urging
an Hggresslvo policy were entirely un
founded. All property he had In Mexico,
with the exception of "a few odds and
ends," he had disposed of In 1906.
villa Murderer and Cnttlc Thief.
Irf tho ease of Benton, Senator Fall
charged Villa had for years been stealing
cattle in Mexico and shipping them for
sale In the United States. The activities
of tho NeW Mexico and Texas Cattlo
Men's associations hampered Villa's busi
ness, and a decree forbidding shipment
of any cattlo from Chihuahua was Is
sued. It was because of that that Benton
went . to see Villa, the senator said. Ben
tort having cattlo- ho wlBhod to ship,
"And Villa killed him," Senator Fall
'Comparing Huarta with Villa. Senator
Fallleclareu'''liat-"If Huerta is a-murderer,
ho is at least a murderer of a
grand, scale.,, He would nqt stoop to kltl
Inga peon Just for tho pleasure ofsoclng
hjm die. Villa-Is a common. Ignorant,
brutal murdered for hire, now being
romanced about In the- press."
Reciting Wllla's rise, Mr. Fall said the
rebel general after the Madoro siege of
Jaurcz. obtained J700.000 in loot. mostly
from American mining camps, was sent
to prison for it, but escaped, probably
because of the kindly feeling oj Madero.
Villa had told him somo of that, tho
senator said, in his otflco In El Paso.
"Later Villa took a bullion train and
help up an American company, -which
owned the ahlpment, for J40.000. With
that $10,000," Senator Fall Said, "he
started to establish constitutional gov
ernment in Mexico."
Senator Fall pictured Vllla'a course

holding back the wives and mothers.

paid $50,000 by Villa to surrender Jaurez.
Luis T.crraza, held prisoner In Chi

place of $590,000 in gold, which Villa, with

RANGERS DIDNOT CROSS LINE
Party Which Recovered Vergara's
Body Not Made Up of Troops.
GOVERNOR MISREADS REPORT
Hodr Delivered to Captain Sanders
Sundnr Morning on American
Side bj- Men Who at Once
AUSTIN, Tex. March 0. Texas rang
ers did not cross tho Mexican border
nor participate in the expedition by which
Clcmento Vergara's body was secretly
exhumed from the Hidalgo (Mexico)
cemetery, and deposited by persons as
yet unidentified on tho Texas side of the'
Rio Grande, betoro daylight Sunday morn- ,
ing, according to the official version of
the Vergara Incident from tate capital
sources -today. It is claimed that this
version was borne out by dispatches from
Laredo, Tex., the nearest- point to Hi
dalgo, where Investigation could bo made
and transmitted by wire.
Lost night's statement that rangers re
covered tho body was based on the fol
lowing telegram from Ranger Captain J.
Statement from Captain Handera.
"I proceeded to Hidalgo. Mox obtained
body of Vorgara. Have It here."
The telegram was dated Laredo, but
the word "hero" Indicated tho point abovo
Laredo on tho nio Grande where Vergara
mado his home. State officials accepted
the telegram as meaning that Sanders
actually entered Mexico. Governor Col
quitt wired Sanders for details early
today, and, after talking to tho ranger'
captain over tho long distance telephone,
gave out tho following statements
"Captain Sanders, commanding com
pany C of the Texas rangers, at Laredo,
advised me by telegraph that ho had re
covered Mi 8 body of Vergara. I wired him
for full particulars. Ho advises mo that
ho did not go Into Mexico at all, but was
Informed that ho body of Vergara' would
be delivered on the Texas Bide of the river
at a particular place named at 3:36 o'clock
Sunday morning, where he found it. As
to who brought it across the river, he
does not knowr -He had no assistance in
this transaction, except from tho family
and relatives' of Vergara, who fully Iden
tified the body."
Members of Party Not Identified.
The persons who exhumed the body
from Its Mexican grave thus far have
kept their- Identity secret.
The wordB of Captain Sanders' first
rtclegram. "I proceeded to Hlldalgo." In
the light of His later report to tho gover
nor, are cabablo of two meanings, it is
said. Sanders Is' stationed at Laredo,
forty-flvo miles from the point where the
body was brought across the river near

that Vergara was executed after hU cap
American Consul Garrett .of Nuevo La

of tho Toxas rangers were the only per
sons 'on tho American side who were told
of the Intended delivery ot tho body at
tho border, They wero notv informed,
they said, until after tho body had been
brought across tho river. They went to
tho eccpo forty-five miles up tho river
fioni; Laredo, found tho body as they hnJ

None of the officials would make

scribed: "Hecutrdos," "'Itemembrances.-'
Vergara was shot' twice through the
head and onco through the neck, his skull

The body was not badly decomposed,

(Continued on Pago. Two.)
It's a sad fact that, as a rule,
poor people get loss for their
money than tho more well-to-do.
There's no real necessity
for this condition. .
The reason is that in trying
to get the most for their money
they upjvisely go after the most
in quantity Instead of in qual
ity and -frequently end in find
ing that what they have bought
There ls,no economy in deal
ing with unknown, unreliable
If you go into a dirty little
shop with signs marking cheap
prices stuck all around, you
may make up your mind that
the money you spend' there will
probably be money lost.
The merchants who carry re
liable merchandise don't .have
to resort to any tricks to get
They stake their reputations
that the things they sell are ab
solutely as represented..
They announco publicly
through tho newspapers what
they have and what their prices
are and are prepared to stand
behind what they say.
You can't make a mistake IT
you deal wjth a man who comes
out in print and tells you
frankly all about what he is
