the meeting of the council of the
great powers Saturday, when reso

a speeding up of all work of the

To accomplish this all commis

such as reparations, boundaries and
economic and financial issues must
report to the supreme council within
the next two weeks or by March 8
at the latest. These reports, in
turn, will form a basis for the draft

wounded statesman dressed and
sitting tip and keenly alert and fully
agreed on the plan for rapid accele

This brought together the British,
American and French viewpoints for
a rapid course of action assuring
the earliest possible peace. Shortly
afterward the supreme council met
and ratified the program.

Juarez Fears Raid
by ' Villa Band Now
83 Miles From City
Juarei. Mexico., Feb. 23. An
irmed Villa band was reported
oday at a point north of Villa
Ahumada, 83 miles south of here.
Whether the band is a main Villa
column under Martin Lopez or a
scouting party under Ramon Vega
or other minor chief was not
known here tonight, but its pres
ence within the 100-mile radius
of Juarez is causing continued
vigilance in the border district.
Jesus Agustin Castro, com
mander of the northeastern zone,
who arrived here late last night,
i was busy making reconnoitering
trips in all directions from Juarez
This unusual military activity,
coupled with authentic reports
from south of Juarez that Villa
bands were active, caused many
rumors of impending attacks to be
circulated here today.
American mining and smelter
men continue to arrive at the bor
der from the interior of Mexico,
fearing Francisco Villa will carry
out his threats to wreck all Amer
ican owned mines and mills and
kill Americans unless a tribute
estimated at $1,000,000 gold is paid
by the big American companies
. operating in the north of Mexico.
March 1 was the date set by
Villa for carrying out his threat.
Many properties are being closed.

President Will Land Today at
Boston and Leave for
Washington at 4:30
On Board the U. S. S. Georpe
Washington, Feb. 23. The', presi
dent's ship and its destroyer" escort,
the Harding, lost their bearings in
the heavy fog and rain off the Mas
sachusetts coast this afternoon while
running for Boston light and came
within perhaps ' 1,000 yards oi
grounding off the beach of That.'h
es island. Cape Ann.
The two vessels were proceeding
on (fcad .reckoning about S o'clock
wifTi the Harding as a guard ship
ahead. Suddenly the Harding'."
lookout discovered laud and the de
stroyer g4ve five quick blasts 'ly
her whistle and made a quick tuni
across the Washington's bow.
The wind was landward and th?
sound was carried away from the
George Washington instead of to
ward her.. The Washington deck
officer, however, saw the five jets
of steam from the Harding's whistle
and signalled the engine room for
full speed astern.,-
The big ship trembled and quiver
ed with the throbbing of the mighty
engines and that was the first inti
mation any of the passengers and
most of the crew had of what was
President Hastens on Deck.
President Wilson noticed the mo
tion at once and with Admiral
Grayson went on deck. He was
quite unconcerned, however, and his
attitude was more one of curiosity
and interest. Troops and passen
gers piled on decks at the same time
and saw the rollers on the sandy
beach and the summer cottages.
Although going full speed the
Washington stopped quickly and
easily and began backing "away,
while the destroyers turned to
wallowing about the big liner. The
lead was dropped quickly and deep
water immediately was reported.
. "I don't care if it is the beach,"
exclaimed one soldier, "it's the
good old U. S. A., whatever it is,
and I say 'hurray for it.' "
s After backing a short distance,
Captain McCauley dropped anchor
to make observations and get bear
ings, while the destroyers formed a
semi-circle about the president's
ship, waiting for orders. The wind
whipped up a bit and a blind snow
flurry swept down , orr the port
quarter, making observations even
more difficult. Then the wind
shifted, and drove the snow flurrv
off to the north, the fog lifted and
one of the officers perched on the
upper deck' sang out: "Thatcher's
island dead ahead."
The weather continued to clear
every moment and before an hour
had quite passedjt was possible to
see from four , to six miles. The
George Washington then backed
out, and, turning south, headed for
Boston light, where a pilot was
waiting at the buoys at the mouth
of the channel.
