much of the time of the governor.
Many enlisted men have discovered
important matters which will .prevent
them from continuing as soldiers.
Governor Moreheadappears of the
opinion that where a man has a fam

ienced by Jhi absence or a business
that will possibly go to the dogs if
he is not present to look after it, or if
the recruit has a mother or perhaps
aged parents who depend upon him
solely for their support that an ex
cuse of that kind is good.

was given today that 500,000 volun
teers would be called for in the next
sixty days after the National Guard
had been whipped into shape and sent
to the border. This was the talk
among army officers and those who
presumably know the niind of the
president and others in military
authority. - -
It was also stated today that an
emergency bill appropriating $50,000,
000. would be voted on Tuesday next
week vesting this amount in the pres
ident as congress did in the Spanish
American war intrusting a like
amount to President McKinley for
the purpose of .meeting . every exi
gency.' . .
Of this amount it was learned, and
it is somewhat significant, that $20,
000,000 will be set aside for aviation
purposes. This, does not necessarily
mean that the whole amount is to
be used for the purchase of aero
planes, but it means that the signal
corps has requested this sum in order
to put itself on a proper war footing.
Yesterday it was learned fhat forty
aeroplanes made in the United States
and consigned to Great Britain for its
war purposes were commandeered by
the United States government and
will be used upon the border.
It is also stated today on authority
that a contract was signed yesterday
for the manufacture of thirty aero
planes bj. the .. leading planes com
panies in the United States and these
for immediate delivery.

known that the possibility of drastic

grave consideration. ' If the Carranza

that occupation ot most of northern

who were not in the thick of the fight

in caring for the troops' mounts at the

alone or at conquering and acquiring
Mexican territory, according to Gen

Mexico livng in El Paso since the
fall of the Kuerta government. Gen
eral Angeles has been called the real
patriot of the Mexican revolution."
"If the United States intervenes in
Mexico simply to put an end to Car
ranza's rule, then the thousands upon
thousands of Mexicans in the United
States will not be attracted by the
first chief's call of a united people
against a common enemy," declared
General Angeles today. .
"But," he continued, "if the United
States should intervene with a view
to conquest and fight the people of
Mexico as a ration, all the refugees
in the United States federals, Cien

parties would return to resist the in
