Indicated that ho will stand by the de-
cree ho Issued early in the revolution re-
carding financial transaction made by
Huerta. His attention today was called
to a report that Just before resigning and
leaving the country, Hperta received J500,
000 from the Rothschilds, giving In return
a grant of a vast area In Lower Cali
fornia at a nominal price of 1 cent an
acre, Carranza declared no such grant
of public lands would be recignlzed and
recalled that leading bankers of the world
bad been so notified.
It was reported here today that Sir
Christopher Cradock, British admiral, on
his visit to Carranza, demanded all con
cessions made by Heurta to Lord Cow
dray and other British citizens, be rati
fied by constitutionalists, and that Car
ranza returned a positive refusal.
Foreign consuls paid another visit to
Carranza early today. In which a discus
sion of prospects took place. Carranza
told them there should be no apprehension
on their part of wholesale reprisals from
the constitutionalists on those who aided
Huerta.
As fast as the federal soldiers are dis
armed. Carranza plans to distribute them
throughout the country to repair the rail
road tracks, He hopes thus to give em
ployment and also to scatter them so
there will be little danger of their mo
bilization against htm, In caBo of a coun
ter revolution.

Naturalization
Papers Bought and -Sold
in St. Louis
ST. LOUIS, July 27 Investlagtlon Into
an alleged traffic in naturalization papers
was begun here today by the board of
election commissioners. The inquiry re
sulted from tho affirmation of one
Assyrian that he had purchased the
naturalization papers of a fellow country
man who had returned to his native land,
and the statement by another that It
was common practice m the Syrian colony
to buy or borrow citizenship papers. I
The commissioners today estimated that I
at least 400 Syrians, most of them cm
ployed by the city, were reglste.-eJ under
naturalization papers not their own.
The traffic. It appears, has been carried
on for the double purpose of obtaining
municipal Jobs for the holders of tho
papers and rendering them eligible to
vote.

nl'DMN', July 27. Serious rioting was
begun hers tonight. The city Is In a state
of Intense excitement. The authorities
fear that It will be necessary to call on
the military, which will mean much blood
shed. DUBLIN, Ireland, July 27 The city of
Dublin and greater part of Catholic Ire
land was today In a state of the greatest
excitement over yesterday's conflict be
tween the regular troops of the British
j army and the Irish Nationalists which
resulted in tho killing of four persons
I and the wounding of many others, forty
1
of whom were In hospitals today In n
serious condition.
Day had dawned before the police suc

geance for tho fatal events of yesterday
when the borderers were ordered out to
prevent the landing or arms and ammuni
tion for the Irish Nationalists coluntecrs.
The crowd, finding that the soldiers had
been ordered to remain In barracks, at
tacked the royal barracks, where the
borderers are stationed and clamored for
the soldiers to come out. Finally the
mob kicked down a gate of the barracks
and fired a couple of shots, on which
bugles were sounded, the police came on
tho scene ahd the crowd was dispersed.
The Natlanalist leaders take the most
serious view of the affair and will de
mand reparation from the government.
Tho landing or arms yesterday for the
Nationalists was carried out In a more
daring manner than similar feats achieve!
by the Ulster Unionists volunteers as it
was effected In daylight Tho yacht
from which the arms and ammunition
were brought ashore already had landed
2,600 rifles and 125,000 rounds of ammuni
tion at Isolated points along the coast
and these had been successfully dis
tributed by motor cars among the Na
tionalists volunteers. Yesterday's at
tempt was undertaken to show that tha
Nationalists could do what the Ulster
Unionists had done. ,
At Howth, 2,600 rifles and 100,000 rounds
of ammunition were Innded under the
eyes of the poller, the telegraph wires

a spirit of revenge attacked Individual

LONDON, July 27. The Dally News
calls the affair at Dublin a massacre

not prohibit the nationalists from doing
the same.

VIENNA. Austria, July 27. A communi
cation Issued hy the Auatro-Hungarlan
foreign office today seta forth the Aus
trian view of the Servian reply to Aus
tria's noto demanding tho cessation of
the Pan-Servian agitation and tha pun
ishment of those concerned In the as
sassination at Sarayevo of Archduke
Francis Ferdinand and hla consort. The
communication nlso gives the reasons for
Austria's dissatisfaction with Servia's
reply, it follows:
"Tho object of the Servian note Is to
create the false Impression that tha
Servian government Is prepared In great
measure to comply with our demanda.
"As a matter of fact, however, Ser
vla'B note Is filled with the spirit of dis
honesty, which clearly lets It be seen
that tho Servian government Is not seri
ously determined to put an end to the
culpable tolerance it hitherto has ex
tended to intrigues against the Austro
Hungarian monarchy.
Conresnloua Are fillirlit,
"Tho Servian note contains such far
reaching reservations and limitations, not
only regarding the general principles of
our action, but also ln regard to tho in
dividual claims wo have put forward,
that the concessions actually made by
Servla become Insignificant.
"In particular our demand for the par
ticipation of the Austro-Hungartnn au
thorities In Investigations to detect ac
complices In the conspiracy on Servian
territory has been rejected while our
request that measures be taken against
that section of the Servian press hostile
to Austria-Hungary has been declined
and our wish that the Servian govern
ment tako the necessary measures to pro
vent the dissolved Austrophobo aasocla
tlons continuing their activity under an
other name and under another form has
not even been considered.
Amwff Is Unaatlnfaetory.
"Since the claims In tho Austro-Hun-garlan
note of July 23, regard being had
to tho attitude hitherto adopted by Ser
vla, repreeent the minimum of what is
necessary for tho establishment of per
manent peace with the southeastern mon
archy, tho Servian answer must be re
garded as unsatisfactory.
"That the Servian government Itself is
conscious that Its note Is not accetable
to us Is proven by tho clrcumstanco that
It proposes at the end of the noto to sub
mit the dispute to arbitration an Inves
tigation which la thrown Into Its proper
light by the fact that three hours before
handing In the note, a few minutes before
the expiration of the time limit, the
mobilization nf the Servian army took
place."
It was pointed out here today that
Austria-Hungary being a signatory to the
second Hague convention, would bo
obliged formally to declare war, but as
Servla did not sign that convention such
a declaration' might, perhaps, be regarded
as unnecessary in this Instance.
ftervla Yields Nearly Kverythlnnr,
LONDON, July 27. It was reported
today that Sir Edward Grey, British for
eign secretary, had made successful rep
resentations to Germany, Italy and
France for a conference between tho rep
resentatives of those countries In Eng
land on the Austro-Bervlan situation with
a view to co-operate In mediation.
The mere fact that hostilities between
Austria-Hungary and Servla had not
begun gave Europe In general the hope
today that war might be averted. There

H. Thompson of Grand Island is to be
re-elected chairman of the state commit
tee. Most of the countlos have Instructed
their delegations for him.

W. Bryan will guard the Interests of tho
antl-Hltchcock wing of the convention
If one should develop of any proportions.
Although harmony In tho talk of all the
various delegations that have already ar
rived, it Is conceded by all that there
Is a possibility for a fight on the endorse
ment of Senator Hitchcock In his career
as United States senator. Several Hitch
cock resolutions are already drawn up
and helnif carried around In tho pockets
of his admirers.
At tho same time, C. W. Bryan and his
friends aro determined that If such a reso
lution romcH up and Is not worded to suit
them, It Is to be fought This Is the onn
point, leaders of the party say, upon
which a fight could be precipitated.
"If they lot tho resolutions go through,
endorsing Hitchcock and endorsing tho
administration, all will be well and good,"
said one of the leading delegates from
Douglas county. "Hut If ono Jumps up
nnd makes an objection on tha floor of
the convention, and If ho does not guard
his language well, ho may say something
that will knock the lid off at once."
Convention All Atlimle.
This Is the thing that will precipitate
tho fight. There Is plenty of antl-Hltchcock
sentiment to be found. Everywhere
In tho lobbies of tho hotel is whispered
the question as to whether his attitude to
wards the democratic administration poli
cies should bo endorsed. Perhaps a ma
jority of tho dolegntes feel that for tho
sake of party harmony It should bo.
Others, however, feel that an endorse
ment of Hitchcock's record would bo al
most equivalent to an endorsement of his
fight on the administration, since his
principal activities In tho senato In the
last two years have been along tha lino
of opposition, to everything big that the
administration has tried to put across.
Corey Chairman
M. L. Coroy of Clay Center Is to be tem
porary chairman of the convention. If
he Is allowed to choose tho resolutions
committee, according to ordinary parlia
mentary usages, It will be a straight
Hitchcock committee. There Is some talk
o fa possibility that a fight will be made
on the floor along the lino of an effort
to taket ho appointment o ftho committee
out of the hands of thctemporary chair
man and make It the business of tho
convention at large.
This Is contrary to ordinary usage, but
It Is a possibility, and not outside the 1
power of this convention. However, If
Coroy Is allowed to choose the commit
tee, John Cutrlght of Lincoln Is slated
for chairman and tho majority of tho
delegation will bo for Hitchcock. Tlmro
Is a possibility then that the Bryan ele
ment will bring a fight upon the floor In
an effort to defeat a Hitchcock endorse
ment Bert Sprague and K. C. Kemble are the
two candidates for the position as secre
tary of the state committee. Sprague Is
a Hitchcock man and Kemble a Bryan
man.
The first fight In tho convention will
probably be In the election of the secre
tary, as this will be In the nature of a
teat of strength of tho Hitchcock element
and the Uryan element.
Governor Morehead arrived late this
evening and began shaking hands. Ted
and Lee Metcalfe are on the ground mak
