Brought to Attention of War
Department It Asks In

for tho arrest of Charles IC. Field,
editor of the Sunset Magazine and former
president of the Bohemian club; Robert''
J, Fowler, .an aviator; Riley A. Scott, a
writer, and Ray S. Dupem. a photo
grapher, were issued today at tho ro
QUestfof John W. Preston. United States
attorney, here. The charge against all
three la the disclosure of military secrets
and tho penalty is ten years' Impris
onment or a (10,000 fine for such dis
closures If mode abroad and one year or
a JL000 fine If made In tho United States.
In April Sunset published an article en
titled, "Can the Panama Canal Bo De
stroyed from the Air?" Reproductions of
photographs taken from an aeroplane and
showing some of the fortifications of the
canal zone and of the San Francisco
Presidio accompanied theHext. As soon
as a copy of the number was called to
the attention of the War department it
requested Preston to Investigate.
Defenae of Mr. Field.
Mr. Field's defense today was that the
photographs showed no actual fortifica
tions nor artillery, but only the emplace
ment for a gun and the preliminary work
for a fort. To this Mr. Preston replied;
"I think the case has merit. It has
always been an army regulation with the
force of law forbidding tho taking of
photographs or views of the permanent
works of defense, whether in course of
construction or completed.
"By the act of March 8, 1911, congress
strengthened the regulation so that It is
now a violation of a plain statute for any
civilian to take or publish photographs
of any fortification, -whether complete) or
In process of construction.
"The War department regards the en
forcement of this law- aa absolutely es
sential, and my Instructions are em
phatic In this case."

VERA CRUZ, July 10.-Querldo -Moheno,
former mlsrfster of commerco and
labor, before departing today on board
the Espagne or Cuba and the United
States, virulently criticised the policy of
the United States toward Mexico. A he
sat In the forward salon of the French
liner, Be nor Moheno looked through a
port hole toward the American flag
floating over Vera Cruz and shook his
fist In rage.
He Insisted that he was In a position
to produce proofs that there existed a
"secret platform" of the progressive
Party in the United States of which Col
onei i loose vent was cognizant and
which he concurred, looking to th
ruptton of Mexico and the acaulaltl

territory between the Rio Grande

He said that Francisco Bscudero, who
was minister of foreign relations In

of his allegations, and declared he hoped
to be able to produce these letters at the
"And not only were the leaders of the
progressive party pledged to this policy,"
he added, "but politicians of both the
republican and democratic parties had
promised their secret support That Preu
ldent Wilson himself had subscribed to
this Iniquitous conspiracy is evidenced by
his attitude toward Mexico. Not a single
American In all the 100,000,000 population
of the United States can give a satisfac
tory answer as to why those troops are
there on shore In Vera Cruz."
Will Show Up Wllnon.
"To show up President Wilson's crime
against Mexico, the greatest in the his
tory of modern nations," Is the announced
object of Senor Moheno's trip to the
United States. He arrived this morning
on the Espagne from Puerto Mexico and
said he would not go ashore during the
liner's stay, as Vera Cruz was to him a
disagreeable spectacle under the existing
Senor Moheno also announced that he
would publish a book explaining his con
nection with Mexican political affairs
since the "tragic ten days" and also de
liver lectures. By these methods and
through Interviews In the newspapers, he
said, he hoped to convince the American
people of the enormity of the "crime
committed not only by President Wilson,
but by all the political factors In tho
United States, regardless of party-"
Senor Moheno added that he did not
agree with the opinion that the oil in-"

ascribed them to a greater power namely,

Neither did Senor Mohcjjo have any
hope except of' the slightest nature that
the overthrow of General' Huerta by the
constitutionalists would be followed, by
Since he left the Mexican capital, Senor
Mohemo appears to have become frank
in his admiration 'of Emlllano Zapata,
the southern, revolutionary leader. He
told newspaper correspondents that
Zapata was a much .misunderstood man.
He decuored Zapata to bo a slmplo In
dian of high Ideals and patriotic impulses,
although his methods were somewhat bar
barous. Zapata would never yield, he asserted,
to any government unless that govern
ment agreed fully to his demands for the
surrender of' the lands of Morelos to him
and his followers.
He added that he had no doubt the
victory of the northern revolutionaries
would be succeeded almost Immediately
not only by a continuation qf the Zapata
revolt, but by other revolts, headed by
disappointed sub-chiefs of Carranza, him
self. In his denunciations of President Wil

Moheno frankly admitted belief that
armed intervention In Mexico finally
would come. He promised to reveal on
his arrival In New Tork the exact method
of the killing of the late President Ma
dero and Vice President Suarez.
"I win say now that I am confident
General Huerta had nothing to do with
the assassination of these men," he con
tinued. "It was a political blunder and
it was Inevitable that It should result In
a revolution which all thinking Mexicans
now concede to have practically tri
umphed." After the revolution he would return
to Mexico whether peace was restored or
not, he said, and would again play his
part in the effort to restore normal con
ditions. He would not -admit that he pro
posed working for the presidency of
Mexico, but other Mexicans on board the

that If the opportunity arose, Querido

, Moved to Canada.
Are Coming Back
WASHINGTON, July 10. Secretary
Wilson of the Department of Labor Is
pleased at reports he Is receiving which
indicate that a number of American citi
zens emigrating to Canada- is decreasing.
For several years the tide of emigration
across the Northern borders of the United
states grew to such proportions as to
cause anxiety .to government officials
and others. During 1912, 97,961 American
citizens went to Canada while the num
ber returning from that country to the
United States was only 38,317.
When he became secretary of labor,
Mr. Wllon ordered that departmental
bulletins giving facts as' to tho products,
resources' and physical characteristics of
all the states be sent to American rest
dents of jjanada. In response many
Inquiries for more specific Information
began to come In.
For the eleven, months ending May 31,
1911, It is stated at the department 68.396
citizens of this country went over Into
the dominion while HflZl Americans re
turned to the United States.
A gratifying feature of the return
movement to Mr. Wilson Is that largo
numbers of those coming back are seek

when he . boarded the ship to serve a

contended that no British peace officer
had the right to board an American ves

ordered two of his officers and the crew
to deposit the chief of police on the bank.
Captain' Sullivan was later arrested by
two police officers from Port Dalhouslo
