city. .
Red Cross officials now have a supply
of beef and beans sufficient for 750,00
liters of soup. Already applications
have come from 60,000 persons, and the
present supply will last no longer than
a fortnight.

Zapatistas Go.
Shortly after the noon hour yester
day the Inhabitants were startled by the
precipitate evacuation of the Zapata
army before an invisible enemy. . Two
hours later the Villa contingent of the
former army .of occupation rallied and
. street fighting ensued with tha Invading
Carrania forces.
. At S o'clock the tiling ceased, and in.
Its place was heard tbe' clanging of bells.
' Offices and stores which had been In the
line of fire were opened and' the oCcii
panta emerged to learn that the city had
been captured by Captain Manuel Ban

the National palace and the Red Cross
ambulance and cars gathered up the dead
and. wounded, numbering eleven, all of
whom were civilians, the fighting having
taken place in the main streeta of the
business section.
The city had settled down to the first
breathing spell of the day when the
Zapata troops, learning that they had
been routed by a force of twenty men,
returned. Banches. with his Carransa
forcea thereupon evacuated the ' palace,
which was taken possession of by Gen

Fleea Police.
Castillo, when morning broke, left the
palace because of a rumored approach
of hostile forcea and General Albania,
claiming to be a Villa follower, occupied
the government offices. Towards noon
heavy firing on several streets leading to

men. This firing lasted all forenoon and
well into the afternoon, and when It
ceased the Inhabitants were in doubt as
to whether tha forcea of Villa, Zapata or
Carransa held tha capital of the republic.

to weather the Seward county old

a crowd of more than 10,000 people
In attendance.
W. J. Bryan delivered an address In
the forenoon to a crowd of about 1.500
people at the park, following out the j
lines of recent addresses made slnco his
retirement from the cabinet.
Mr. Bryan ridiculed the Idea of pre-1
parednesa for war aa being tha beat thing
to promote peace and called the war. In
Europe a "humane war Inhumanly con
ducted." Still After Jlaaoes.
He aald the people were refusing to ap
ply to nations what It would apply to so
ciety and that' tha jingo press of tha
coUntry and the jingo public would, put
4 uniform on every- tltisen and a hair
trlegtf rifle tn hla Muids ready to go' to
war. ' - -
He reiterated the statement made In
former speeches that it was only tha
prepared nations that went Into the
present war and ' that had the United
States been as well prepared for war as
theae were this country would have boen
In at tha start.
"There are a few people in this coun
try," said Mr. Bryan, "who drink blood
before breakfaat, prepared to kill a man
before dinner for fear they will be called
mollycoddles before supper time."
He said, tho sentiment of the present
time appeared to be along the lines of
cruelty, and If any man waa cruel It waa
up to the man who opposed him to be
more cruel than ha was.

Before closing Mr. Bryan said that one
thousand years hence tha name of Wood

linked with the peace treatlea and be
household words whenever tha peace
proposition Is mentioned.
Oovernor Morehead spoke in the after
noon to a large crowd and, notwithstand
ing the races and other sports were In

The governor spoke along lines of the ad
vancement of the etate. of prosperity and

Penfield Will Probably Present it
to Foreign Office Thursday.
WASH1NUTON. Aug. 10. The
United Slates government today dis
patched lo Vienna a reply rejecting
the Amtro-Hngarton views recently
set forth In a note contending that
the great scale on which war muni
tions are being exported from Amer
ica to enemies of the Germanic allies
"is not in consonance with the defi
nition of neutrality."
The note was cabled to Ambassador
Penfield, who probably will present It to
the Vienna foreign office Thursday. It
may be made public later by agreement
between thetwo governmenta.
Repudlntea Snareatlon.
Though framed In diplomatic language
and entirely friendly In tone, the reply
la understood to repudiate flatly the sug
gestion that the United States has per
mitted violations of neutrality and rests
firmly upon the right of American export
ers to send war supplies to belligerents
able to purchase and receive them.
The United States always has held that
this is n unquestioned right under Inter
national law and high officials have
pointed out tha tto prevent such ship
ments to one country because another
waa not In a position to receive them
would be In Itself a violation of neutral
ity. rPecedents also have been recalled
where In previous wars Germany and
Austria Imported arms extensively.
The Auntro-Hung&rian note, handd to
Ambassador Penfield on June 29 waa a
lengthy document, setting forth the views
of that government and suggesting that
the United States might redress the state
of thinga complained of by Informing the
enemlea of Austria-Hungary that the sup
ply of foodstuffs and war materln! to
them would be suspended unlesa legit
imate trade in these articles bntween
America and neutral countries were per
mitted. According to Berlin dispatches, this
complaint waa aent' after a conference
between .the. Austro-Iiungarlan and Qep
man foreign offices. Similar notes, it waa
sgld, soon would be, aent. la (he United
States by Germany and Turkey.
