WASHINGTON, April 16. Consul

State department today a summary

completely surrounded the city and cut
the railroad behind the Carranialstaa.
The Carranza agency made public a
tdegram from Carranza quoting General
Obregon'a report on thirty-six hours of
liphtinR at Celaya. Obregon announced
a complete victory over Villa, who, he
said, attacked Celaya Wednesday morn
ing at 6 o'clock, with forty-two of his
generals and Sn.000 men In three armies.
After describing his defensive measures,
folViwed by charges and an advance of
rhnrpshooters, the Obregon report said:
"As soon as this movement was begun
the enemy showed signs of dismay and
complete disorganization. Our cavalry
charges on the em-my's flank and the at
tccks of our infantry, which was ad
vancing against the enemy's flank and
front, determined its defeat, and at 1:1ft
p. m. (April 15) the retreat in great dis
order bogan. Our soldiers were then on
their trenches, causing the enemy a ter
ilble loss of life.
"We have picked up from the field over
thirty cannon in perfect condition with
al'. their munition and beasts of burden;
over 5.C00 Mauser rifles, and have taken
more than 8,000 prisoners and large num
bers of horses, saddles and other war

is left of the enemy, and 1 am hopeful
that the enemy and such accoutrements

"At this time I calculate that the en

dead, wounded and prisoners. Our losses
do not exceed 200 men dead and wounded,
among the latter being a colonel and an
officer of my staff." . '
SKTTI E. Wash., April 1. -'That's all

recently si-pointed Carranza minister to
Japan, and brother of Mrs. Francisco

Mexico, today, when shown a copy of a

"Disregarding the question of who
actually shot Tresldent Madero, the fact
remains," said Colonel Itomero, "that
General Huerta was In power and could
command the armed force of the cou

and while In his power m assassinated.
How Huerta can attempt to evade re
sponsibility for h's death is Inconcelv

WESTERN GRAIN MEN
GATHER IN OMAHA
(Continued from Page One.)
Pmlth's remarks were especially instruc
tive to the grain men from. Iowa, who
are In the majority in the- association.
Che Iowa legislature Is now considering
a public warehouse bill. 1 t - . - ;-
Co-operation la Commended.
"I am proud to be an American grain
man," aald Lee G. Metcalf of Illlopolls,
111., president of the Grain ' Pealers" Na
tional association. "Throughout the
chaotic period of business since the war,
American grain men have steadfastly ad
hered to Justice and equity, truth and
right In handling grain entrusted to them
by the farmers, and have j8t generally
fallen victims to the great temptation to
take advantage of inflated grain prices,
and jump contracts, with resultant loss
to other dealers and to the producer."
President Metcalf commended the co
operation among grain men, such as
in the present convention, which he de
clared was showing careful consideration
for publ'c needs, an well oh for the good
of the Hade. The grain men must ever
consider ther welfare r na happiness of
tbelr fellow men, he asserted, for the
lights nnd privileges of the public must
a. ways he placed above the rights and
pilvilegos of the grain dealer.
"The last twenty-five years liavo seen
wonderful Improvement in th grain
trade, and It is larfe'dy due to the co
operation 'and organlzec" effort c.f . the
dealers," he said. "Put the grain busi
ness on an even higher, hotter and more
ibcful plane," he urged. He lnvitfd the
visiting grain men to -join the National
uaiMjclntlon, if they ha not already done
to, and he also extended an Invitation
lor all to attend tlv national conven
tion at i'euria next October.
To Conclude Today.

Reception at Kirktsir,
During the morning the visiting grain

Oiii.iha Cr:tln exchange, where an lnfor

a iM'-ltiVe. hilarious fashion that they
immediately felt at home and realized

It was a strictly good fellowship recep

business, as a preliminary to the first

Aldrich went to bed. Soon afterward Dr.
Thatcher reached the Aldrich home, re
mained a few minutes and departed.
This morning Dr. Thatcher called upon
Mr. Aldrich about 9:30 o'clock. The pa

be suffering from nothing more serious
tlan a slight attack of indigestion.
After chatting with him about ten min

minutes later Mr. Aldrich was stricken.
Thirty Years la Senate.
Nelson Wllmnrth Aldirch held a seat
In the Cnlted Stjies senate continuously
from lSftl to 1M1., The influence exerted
by him on government affairs was best
Illustrated by the fact that when he waa
satirically Introduced to an audience as
"the general manager of the United
States." that appellation lived through
tho administrations of McKinley. Roose
velt end Taft.
Probably the greatest parliamentarian
that ever served In the senate, Mr. Aid
rich had no difficulty In maintaining
leadership of his party. Although known
among the veterans as a "committee"
senator, he was quite as much at home
on the floor, and naturally was more In
evidence In the larger arena. While he
gave special attention to the tariff and
financial legislation n committee, on the
senate floor his ear was open for all that
was ald on any subject of general Im
portance. He seldom failed to partici
pate In the discussion of any measure af
fecting governmental policies.
Naturally Mr. AMrlrh's long-continued
supremacy in Jhe counsels, of his party
and in directing legislation caused him
to become the subject of mutih adverse
criticism. He was charged with bossis-n
and with being the tool of the "Inter
ests." Whether or not this waa true in
the main. It can be said in fairness that
some of these assertions gained and held
currency becauae It was his policy never
to defend himself against published attacks.-
He rre!y permitted himself to
be quoted by the press.

four years Ititer sent to congress. After
two sessions ho was elevated to the sen

Having begun his career as a business
man. Senator Aldrich continued through
cut hie public service to display business
like methodo arcf extraordinary capacity
for organization. I'pon his election to
the senate he was Immediately mads
chairman of the committee on rules, an,
a member of the committee in flnan?t
and Interstate commerce. letter as
chairman of the finance committee he
was called upon to assume a large share
of the responsibility for all tariff and
ftranclot legislation before ths senate.
He participated in the preparation, of no
fewer than six revisions of the tariff and

Thn Paync-Aldrlch tariff act waa en
gineered through the senate by him after
many weeka of skillful maneuvering and
hard fighting. .
Poshes Aldrich-Vreelaad BUI.
Mr. Aldrich was always ready to seise
upon any trend of public business to
. auv,im o tegisiuuve causes In which he
was Interested. The "bankers' panic" of
jl907 enabled him to. glv impetus to his
pian 10 Dring aoout monetary reforms.
The firt fruit of his labors in this direc
tion was the Vreeland-Aldrich emergency
currency law cf 1908. put tfirough the
senate by Aldrich after an historic fili
buster .directed by Mr. L Polette, the
progressive republican from Wisconsin,
who was aided by Mr. Stone of Missouri,
a democrat. Sharp parliamentary tactics
enalOed Mr. Aldrich to bring the bill to a
final vote, but In taking Mr. Ia Folletle
off Ms feet Mr. Aldrich made an enemv
J who was relentlea In hU opposition dur
ing many subsequent legislative contests.
The emergency currency law was re
garded by Mr. Aldrich as the best remedy
possible of speedy enactment, but he did
not atop tliere. Ho began work im
mediately upon a more permanent plan
jof currency reform, giving most of his
time to the work of the National Mone
tary commission. He was able to devoie
his time unreservedly to his work be

Trip Thronch West I'nsarcrasf al.
Mr. Aldrich's friends contended that
his effort to revise the currency system
of the country was approached In an ab
solute nonpartisan way. lie was ex
ceedingly anxious that his work should
! stand up as a monument to hla public
service. His disappointment was keen
when In Ifll his party lost control of the
house and took from the republicans the
credit of putting through this far-reaching
legislation. Before the political com
plexion of congress changed Mr. Aldrich
was compelled to admit that his efforts
were being frustrated by antagonistic
sentiment In the central west. Mr. Aid
rich then undertook a speech-making
trip with the avowed Intention of eradi
cating hostility to himself and hla pro

of bankers and business men. hla mission

"Why is not our plan taken at tare

a frank answer.
"You have spent your vacations in
Europe. You have not studied the peo
ple. Your language Is that of the pros
perous business man. You are seeking
too late In life, to know the peapie."
After hla retirement from public life
Mr. Aldrich spent much of his time In
travel, but be continued to follow busi
ness affairs. He saw many of his Ideas
on the subject of currency enacted by
the democrats and, although the new law
did not bear his name, it is known to a
