LONG RUMORED ON BORDER
Washington, Oct. 24. Charges that
General Carranza is preparing to leave
Mexico ate being freely made by his
political, opponents in Mexico City.
T-hey are based upon his decision to
leave his capital for Queretaro, and
the fact that Mrs. Carranza already
. has crossed the border into the United
States, accompanied by the wife of
her husband's war minister and chief
supporter, General Obergon.
Information to this effect is reacliA
ing officials here from various 're
liable sources. So far nothing tangi
ble tending to support the story has
come through official channels. It is
known, however, that many officials
here believe General Carranza has
committed a political blunder at least
if he is . not in fact preparing for
flight, by permitting his family to
leave Mexico, just at this time. : The
rtip, they say, was certain to be con
k strued by his followers as a confession
' i Explanation of Her Visit.
The purpose of the visit of Mrs.
Carranza and Mrs.sObergon as ex
plained at the Mexican embassy is
for a tour of the United States. Word
of the arrival at the border als,o of
t T,.:n,A Trjwinn U7lfl r( the
military commander of Chihuahua
state, had not been received tonight.
It was pointed out, however, that
Trovinn h.ir been among Carranza's
staunchest supporters and that if the
first chief believed his hold on the
political situation was weakened Tre
yino very probably would be warned,
in order that he might also, place
his family in safety.
The State department had not re
ceived tonight word that Generals
.,-Carranza and Obergon had left Mex
ico City for Querretaro. Previous
advices, however, said that the first
chief would go to that place in con
nection with the meeting of the con-
t . -i ...l.!!. th.
sututionai .cviurcuuuiia,. i wnh-wiv
delegates were elected last week. '
Circulated On Border.
This is the only explanations ob
tainable here for Carranza's departure.
Presistent reports that Carranza was
about to leave Mexico have been in
circulation along the border for some
time. . ' ' ' .
It is not known that the American
military authorities have been able
to gather deffnite information in this
regard. War department officials
have expressed their conviction, how
ever, that the de facto government
or at least Gen. Carranza's personal
control of the political situation was
arnwincr stpaHilv weaker. Thev have
another report that ther time might
come soon when he would be forced
to leave Mexico.
Troops Go North. v .

St. Louis, Oct. 24. The house of
deputies of the Protestant Episcopal
general convention today adopted a
resolution favoring "such action in
our legislative assemblies as will pre
serve the large interests of temper
ance and aid in the repression'-of the
liquor traffic." '
The resolution was adopted as the
result of a memorial presented by
Francis Lynie Stetson, a layman of
New York, acting in behalf of the
church temperance society.
The resolution was reported favor
ably by the commission to which it
had-been referred. The repprt read
by Rev. James Freeman of Minneapo
lis, chairman of the commission, said:
"Our age is witnessing a vast and uni
versal readjustment with reference to
the manufacture and sale of liquor
and it is generally recognized that the

Louisburg, said that, before he left
Nova Scotia persistent rumors were
current that the German U boat" S3
hid been sunk off Sydney, Nova

Stanley. He said he heard the rumor
several times, but was unable to ver
."Before I left Louisburg, I was told
by a shipping man that I need not

said 'Captain Tudor. This man said
the U boat would not bother any
more British vessels because it had
been sunk by the Stanley.
Captain Tudor said no mention was
made of the submarine's crew.

Cut-Throat Rival Not Only
Hurts Competition, But v
COMING BANK LAWS
All business concerns, big or little,
should have accurate, clear-cut ac
counting systems, according to Ed
ward N Hurley, chairman of the
Federal Trade, commission, who
spoke to the delegates of the Ne
braska Bankers' association in their
convention at the Hotel Fontenelle
yesterday afternoon. He even went
so far as to suggest to the bankers
that they make a loan to business
houses conditional upon their estab
lishing an accounting system that
will shdw their real costs and their
real financial condition.
"I think you ought to do this, not
simply for their sakes'," he said, "and
to protect your loans to them, but
to protect your loan to the man who
is sound, and to protect business as
a whole. For the man who does not
know his' true costs is iust the man
who prices his goods foolishly, and
thereby impairs the business of his
sound competitors at the same time
that he ruins his own.
'"oo low price-makinsr. based on
guesswork or on partial costs, is a
menace to sound business. The
menace is not in underselling, for a
business concern must expect to face
the low prices that are due to ef
ficiency. But even the most efficient
concern is not always able to meet
cut-throat, prices based on ignorance.
I predict that within five years
there will be very little money loaned
by any banker in the United States
to any merchant or manufacturer
who does not present a statement
showing detailed information, not
only regarding his true assets and
liabilities, but also indicating that he
is conducting his business in an ef
ficient manner, and that he knows his
true costs." )
S. M. Felton. president of the Chi
cago Great Western Railway com
pany, spoke on the effect of the au
tomobile on railroad passenger traf
fic. He developed the subject of the
competition the roads have had from
boat lines, from electric railways and
other sources, and said: "But the
latest t appear in the field promises
to De more universal and trouble
some to deal with. No fixed rails
have to be laid and paid for to con
tract its spheres of operation. Any-'
one with a Ford and the price of a
few gallons of gasoline in his jeans
can enter the lists with the most
costly twelve-car Pullman train in the
land. The whole vast continent af
fords the field for his operations..
That Auto Parade.
At a point eight miles from the
city hall in Chicago these automo
biles flit by for two hours, night and
morning, at the rate of 100 a minute
at an average speed of twenty to
twenty-five' miles an hour, Is it any
wonder that between a parallel trolley
line and automobile competition, the
Chicago &' Northwestern, which for
merly had a monopoly of the Chi
cago north shore passenger traffic,
should see its average passenger
lengthened from about twenty-seven
to thirty-five miles during the last
sixteen years r
The fact that the railroads in 1916
contributed in taxes $152,000,000
toward the building of permanent
highways for the automobiles was a
point on which Mr. Felton touched.
That does not strike the funny bone
of the railroad manager either," he
"On top of the loss in nassemrer
traffic," he continued, "comes a sure
loss through motor truck competition

The railway official told the bank
PTl the problem should interest them
as well as the railway men, as the
financing of railroads new and old is
a part of their business. '"What are
you going to do to lighten the burden

President Peter W. Goebel of the
American Bankers' association talked
briefly, urging the Nebraska bankers

HOW THE DEMOCRATS FEEL
' (From a Staff Correapondtnt.)
Lincoln, Oct) 24. (Special.) "Can
I, conscientiously " and consistently
vdte for Senator Hitchcock after vot
ing for President Wilson," appears to
be a question uppermost with demo
crats. , ' - '. ' '
The small number attending the
meeting last night - when Senator
Hitcheock 'was billed to-speak to the
members of the democratic county
committee and democratic workers
in general, has caused no little worry
among supporters o tthe senator to
day.; Attention is called to the fact
that neither Mayor Charles "Bryan
nor many of his very close personal
friends or friends of William J. were
present. Some of them were in the
Lindell hotel lobby at the time the
meeting was held, but did not attend,
which again brings up the question
whether after defeating both of the
Bryans at the primary, - the Mullen
Hitchcock combination will be able
to whip them into line or the very
men who less than six months ago
were saying' uncomplimentary things
about the Bryans.' -
Discussing the matter today a well
known Lincoln business man said:
"It is a very serious' problem for
me to settle. Suppose I vote for
President Wilson, can I vote for Sena
tor Hitchcock with any assurance that
he will stand by the president, if
elected, any better than he- has in
the past four years? I am pretty well
informed as to the record of Senator
Hitchcock during the present ad
ministration. I know that he has been
more than once a thorn in the side of
the president on seve ral matters that
Mr. Wilson wanted to be made into
laws. When I look at those things
I sometimes wonder if a republican
would not have given our democratic
president just as good support as has
Mr. Hitchcock. -
"We do not expect very much sup
oort from a feoublican senator for a
democratic president, just as republi
cans do not expect much support trom
a democratic senator tor a republican
president, but both parties do expect
that senators of their won political
belief will support a president on mat
ters of general welfare ot the people,
or what the party believes is of gen
eral welfare to the people whether it
is or not. ' .
Take No Chances.
"Consequently it is a hard matter
for me to determine just what to do.
The way I feel now I would much
rather take chances .on some good
wide-awake progressive republican
than I would on a reactionary demo
crat, whom we know will go back
on the president, because he has done
it so often the past four years that
he will do it again, in all probability,
if he gets a chance, therefore, feel'
ing as I do, I am not able to say that
I will vote for Mr. Hitchcock. Per
haps I may change my mind, but
there ure so many of us feeling the
wav I have spoken that it looks to
me as if there might be serious dif
ficulties for Mr. Hitchcock to sur
mount if he expects the votes of real
Wilson democrats. .

not unexpected, nevertheless puts a ;
damper on the enthusiasm aroused by
tire continued progress of the entente

commentators do not unduly exag- :
gerate the importance of the achieve
ment of Field Marshal von Macken

is considered here as a defen
sive one in shortening his front so
as to hold it better with fewer men.
They point out the only way he
could do this is to advance, since, if
he fell back, his front would, on ths '
contrary, be lengthened insofar as he
succeeded, t hese oDservers say aiso
that if he manages to tie up the
