Dublin and greater part of Catholic Ire

excitement over yesterday's conflict be

jwrny and the Irish Nationalists which
resulted In the killing of four persons
and the wounding of many others, forty

when the borderers were ordered out to

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
the scene and the crowd was dispersed.
The Natlanalist leaders take the most
serious view of the affair and will de
mand reparation from the government.

Villa Will Move His
Army Toward Capital
EL PASO, July 27. Indications lodny
were that General Villa waa preparing to
move his cntlro army toward Mexico
City, leaving only local garrisons in th
territory he dominates. It previously
had been understood that the northern
conbtitutlonallst leader would participate
in the mobilization above the national
capital with only 5,000 men.
Reports received at Chihuahua City
where Villa Is quartered said the eastern
and western divisions were mobilizing
large numbers of men to the south. This
was said to account for Villa's delay In
moving south, and the extensive recruit-
Ing of men thioughout his division. Gen-
oral Angeles, deposed by General Car
ranza as hit war secretary, but now serv
ing with Villa as chief of artillery, was
oxpected here today. His presence on
the border was unexplained.

VIENNA. Austria, July 27.-A communi
cation Issued by tho Austro-Hungarlan
foreign office today sets forth tho Aus
trian view of the Servian reply to Aus
tria's noto demanding the cessation of
the Pan-Servian agitation and the pun
ishment of those concorned In the as
sassination at Sarayevo of Archduke
Francis Ferdinand nnd hie consort. The
communication also gives the reasons for
Austria's dissatisfaction with Servia's
reply. It follows:
"Tho object of the Bervlan noto Is to
create the false Impression that the
8ervlan government Is prepared In great
measure to comply with our demands.
"As a matter of fact, however, Ser
via's note Is filled with the spirit of dis
honesty, which clearly lets It be seen
that tho Bervlan government Is not seri
ously determined to put an end to the
culpable tolerance It hitherto has ex
tended to Intrigues against the Austro
Concmnlon Are KHrIiI.
"Tho Servian note contains such far
reaching reservations and limitations, not
only regarding the general principles of
our action, but also In regard to the 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 tho Austro-Hungarlnn 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 tho Servian press hostile
to Austria-Hungary has been declined
and our wish that the Servian govern
ment take the necessary measures to pro
vent the dissolved Auitrophobo associa
tions continuing their activity under an
other name and under another form has
not even been considered.
AnnTvcr la Unantlnfactnr)'.
"Since the claims In tho Austro-Hungarlan
note of July 23, regard being had
to tho attitude hitherto adopted by Ser
vla, reprcnent the minimum of what Is
necessary for tho establishment of per
manent peace with tho southeastern mon
archy, the Servian answer muet be re
garded as unsatisfactory.
"That the Servian government itself Is

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.

today that Sir Edward Grey, British for

resentations to Germany, Italy and
France for a conference between the rep

a view to co-operate In mediation.

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 heln 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 cornea up and Is not worded to suit
them, It Is to be fought This Is the one
point, leaders of the pnrty say, upon
which a fight could be precipitated.
"If they let the 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 tho floor of
tho convention, and It ho does not guard
his languago well, ho may say something
that will knock the lid off at once."
Convention All Atlnulr,
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 delegates feel that for tho
sake of party haimony It should bo.
Others, howovcr, feel that an endorse
ment of Hitchcock's record would bo nl
most equivalent to an endorsement of his
fight on the administration, since hla
principal activities In tho senato In the
last two years have lieon along tho lino
of opposition to everything big that the
administration him tried to put across.
M. L. Coroy of Clay Center Is to be tem
porary chairman of the convention. If
ho Is allowed to chooso tho retiolutlons
committee, according to ordinary parlia
mentary usages. It will be a straight
Hitchcock committee. There Is some talk
o fn possibility that a fight will bo made
on the floor along tho lino of an effort
to takot ho appointment o fthe committee
out of the hands of thetemporary chair
man and mako it the business of tho
convention at large.
This Is contrary to ordinary usage, but
It Is a possibility, and not outside the !
power of this convention. However, If
Coroy Is allowed to chooso the commit
tee, John Cutrlght of Lincoln Is slated
for chairman and tho majority of tho
delegation will be for Hitchcock. Tlmro
Is a possibility then that tho Bryan ele
ment will bring a fight upon the floor In
an effort to defeat a Hitchcock 'endorse
ment. Bort Sprague and E. C. Kemble are the
two candidates for the position as secre
tary of the state committee. Spjague is
a Hitchcock man and Kemble a Bryan
Tho first fight In the convention will
probably be In tho election of the secre
tary, as this will he In the nature of a
test of strength of tho Hitchcock element
and the Bryan element.
