Blow Mobilization of National Guard
of Border States Delays
HOUSTON'S WORK IS HAMPERED
Washington, May 20. General
Funston'a realignment of the border
patrol is being delayed, War depart
ment official said today, by a slow
mobilisation of the Arizona and New
Mexico National Guard and by the
disappointing showing in numbers and
equipment of some of the guard com
panies that have reported for service.
Although it has been tert days since
President Wilson called out the
Texas, Arizona and New Mexico
guardsmen for patrol duty along the
border their mobilization and assign
ment is far from complete.
Below Paper Standard.
The Texas companies responded
promptly, but in the other two states
the call has not met with as quick re
sponse as officials expected. In ad
dition so many companies in all three
states have been found to be below
paper strength that the War depart
ment now experts the tot guards
men provided will not be more than
3,000 and probably a few hundred less.
When the call was issued it was de
pended on to add 3,500 men to the
Won't Be Recalled.
Marathon, Tex., May 19. The or
der of withdrawal sent to the Sibley
I.anghorne expeditionary columns
two days ago has been counter
manded and the American troops
which invaded Mexico in search of
the Glenn Springs bandits will remain
there indefinitely, it is reported here
tonight. This column probably will
be reinforced by troops from General
I'rrshing's army, according to the
same sources of information.
Major Langhorne when last heard
from had established his camp at Kl
t'ino, 125 miles south of the border.
Patrol of North Chihuahua.
Columbus, N. M., May '19. Prepa
rations for the policing of northern
Chihuahua by approximately 10,000,
composing a protective patrol of the
Mexican border, were progressing
rapidly here tonight. All movements
of troops and report from General
Pershing's expeditionary columns
were guarded, however? by stringent
New rumors concerning the where
abouts of Villa reached the border
with the arrival of the troops today.
These said that the bandit leader
thr&ugh the connivance of trusted fol
lowers had been treated for his
wounds in a Chihuahua City hospital
and now is recruiting an army.
Plan to Abolish
Sale of Coolie Labor
(Correspondent- of the Associate 1 Press.)
DELHI. India, April lS.-Tha lovsrn
ment's announcement that It Intends to
abolish the system of Indian Indentured
labor, made through tha viceroy a few
days ao, has been received with great
satisfaction throughout India. Tha an
nouncement applies to the, large ahlj
menta of eoolle labor annually sent to
Jamaica. Trinidad, British Guiana, FIJI
and Dutch Guiana.
Indian feeling on the subject has for
many years condemned the Indenture

economic advantages weighed against
the feeling of educated Indiana that It
degraded India In the eyes of the world
Iteoent reports showing the social degen
eration caused by the paucity of women
emigrating and also the number of aul

Students of Indian conditions have long
maintained that there Is abundant acope
In India for all available labor, and emi
gration U no longer one of Indla'a necea
sulfa. Ifow soon the government's promise of
abolition will he put Into effect Is yet
a matter of doubt. The viceroy stated
that the existing system of recruiting
must be maintained until the new condi
tions could be worked out and reason
able time had been given the communities
which depend on this labor to adjust
themselves to the change.
"No one who knows anything of Indian
sennnient can remain Ignorant of the

YOU CAN ALMOST TALK TO HER
--THIS 3400 r. p. m. CHALMERS
They're buying motor cars today as they're hiring
men on ability.
lllue eyes, brown hair, a nigged jaw, mean something
but not so much as they used to.
They're seeking ability. And that is not always
measured in stature, weight and reach.
Likewise in a car. They look her over, learn her wheel
base, note the tire sizes, ask the bore and stroke of the
engine and then
They make her perform.
They make her hit the trail, they roll her op the stiffest
hill. They let her out on t he straightaway, and they make
her accelerate at slow speeds.
It's the only way to judge a car. And we're partic
ularly glad, localise we have in the 8100 r.p.m. Chalmers
a car that answers every human wish.
You can almost talk to this animal. You can lead her
anywhere. We know of no one who has ever called on her
for too much, nor asked of heranythingshe couldn't deliver.
She's like a young ballplayer who keeps driving 'em
ever the right-field fence.
She's there. And the reason is her magnificent 3400
r. p. m. engine. When history in our business is written,
8400 r. p. m. will occupy a thick chapter.
Simply leeause at the lowest speeds she saves her
energy, turns up only .100 r. p. in. at 10 miles an hour,
and 1000 r. p. m. at 20 miles nn hour.
Thus using only 1 per cent of her power at such
speeds and saving ('2 to K0 per cent for winding, hilly
roads, bad turns, and on occasions when a little etm
joer gives you possrvsion of the road.
One ride of five miles lwhind the wheel and you'll own it.

Webster, president, declared, would
like to purchase the notable Breton
canvin, but ui the present time the
funds are nut available. Mr, Webster
is bemoaning the fact that the big
canvas must leave Omaha and wants
every art lover in the city to see the
work before .it is sent back to the
eastern gallery, from where it came.
Breton, the painter of the work,
lived in the time of Napoleon and is
ranked with the greatest of French
