Death Penalty Evoked for Men
Who Plunged City Into Dark-
aess and Tied Up Traffic
DECEEE HOST SWEEPING
El Paso, Tex, Aug. ll.-rThe text
of a decree wherein First Chief Car
ranza erokei the death penalty against
the striken who paralyzed Mexico
City through a general electric strikeL
appears in copies arriving here today
of El Pueblo, a daily publication in
In tying up transportation, plung
ing the city in darkness and cutting
oft its water supply, the strike is
held by Carranza to be no strike at
all, but an act of pure treachery
s against his government, whose ene
mies will receive encouragement
Carranza's decree amplifies the law
of 1862, dealing with public disorders.
It threatens with death those con
nected in any way with the strike.
Not only are these who preside at
strike meetings, advocate strikes or
persuade others from work, either by
eloquence or by threats, amenable to
this act, but even those who fail to
leave strike meetings on learning
The strike 'was declared on July
31 by the Confederation of Syndi
cates. The paper, dated August 3,
gives a list of the leaders then in
prison on charges of rebellion. It
said that the strike was assisted by
North American syndicates and that
it stopped work in the arms and muni
tion factories, which was construed
as treachery to the de facto government

American shippers to Holland are
bombarding the British government
with protests as a result of deten
tions of cargoes consigned to TJie
Netherlands Overseas trust It is
understood here their protests may
be Backedby diplomatic action at
; In April of last year, replying to
a protest from Washington over the
detention of the American steamship
Seguranca, the foreign office made
the following promise:
"While his majesty's government
does not require cargoes to be con
signed to The Netherlands Overseas
trust, it does accept a consignment
in that, form as proof that the cargo
is intended for a boiu fide consump
tion in Holland." This was. widely
circulated in the United States, not
only in the press, but in circulars is

seek aid from the State department

Cut Down Size of.
Philadelphia, Aug. 11. At a series
of meetings, the first of which was
called at the suggestion nf Victor F.
Lawson of Chicago, the newspaper
publishers of Philadelphia in view of
the practical famine in the news print
paper' situation decided unanimously
to reduce the site of all papers, daily,
evening and Sunday so as to effect a
saving in excess of eighty pages per
week. This reduction has already been
put into effect by thenewspapers.
It was further decided that begin
ning September i, Mo. they would
cut off all returns of unsold copies,
country and city, so that production
will be reduced to the actual needs
of the public.
The combined saving due to the re
duction in the number of pages is
sued and the cutting off of returns
of unsold copies will be in excess of
200 tons of white paper per week.
The meeting of the Philadelphia
publishers was marked by cordial co
operation throughout the United
States to join with them in cimilar ac
tion. It is believed that concerted action
on the part of all newspaper pub
lishers will work to the common good,
and will prevent suspension of publi
cation, which in some parts of the
country is now threatened owing to
the scarcity of white paper.
Chairman Hurley of the Federal
Trade commission, Washington, D.
C urges all newspaper men to file
answers to schedule of questions bear
ing on paper supplies, prices and trade
troubles, . ,
