American Physician Also Describes Continuous Out

Declares Never Has a Culprit Been Punished
Dr. Hunter Asserts He Knows No Mexican, Car
ranza Included; Whose Oath He Would Accept.
San-Antonio, Jan. 19. After des
cribing one outrage after another,
which l:e claimed o have witnessed,
Dr. John Hunter, an American phy
sician of Nogales, told the senate
subcommittee investigating the Mex
ican situation today he nevef had
known of a Mexican being punished
for killing an American in Meyico.
"There has been no safety tor
American life or property in Mexico
since 1010," he said. "I have k"own

I do not know one and I know
Carranza "whose oath I would ac
cept." Dr. Hunter was at Guadalajara
when the Americans occupied Vera
Cruz. His account of the flight of
the Americans from there was ac
cepted, as additional evidence of the
higher regard held by Mexicans for
British and German representatives.
It was the British consul who af
forded protection to the Americans
at Guadalajara and a German clerk
at another town who effected the
release of Americans held by Mexi
can soldiers bv declaring himself
a Germs n consular officer.
Shot Three Mexicans.
J. D. Ward, now a farmer in lex
as, gave the first instance in the
committee's record of an American
scoring on the Mexicans. Ward
shot three and got back into the
United . States without 1eing cap
tured. He was living on a fruit farm
with his wife in 1915, he testiiied.
One night he was visited by sol
diers led by one identified as a non
commissioned officer in Carranzas
army. They had been there be
fore and tried to extort money. That
night, Ward said, he gave the lead
er some, but not enough to satisfy
him and his men tried to force their
way through the door.
"I had told mv wife to get under'
the bed," he testified. "I had made
up my mind I would have to fight.
As the leader came in I fired and
he fell. The others began firing and
continued their efforts to enter. I
had estimated' there were not more
than eight or ten in the background
when the controversy had begun.
Pretty soon another came in sight
and I lcr him have it, too, and a
moment later I managed to make
out the outlines of another man ani
I got him."
The attacking party withdrew and
the remainder of the night was spent
by Mr. and Mrs. Ward in hiding un
der - the barn. It. developed next
day, he said, that the Mexicans on
their way to his house had raided
that of an American negro, brutally
attacking the man s wite.
who was a member of the Blalock
colony, testified he had been he'd
1? days and ordered shot by Co!.
Lopez De Lara, who insisted he was
a Yaqui Indian and a spy of Villa.
Jacks is from Pine Bluff, Ark. His
testimony was corroborative of
others wh have told of outrages
and depredations. His escape was
au indirect result of his enforced
practice of medicine.

SEES DEFEAT OF
Lodge Says Certain Great
Principles Involved Can't
New York, Jan. 19. Defeat of
the peace treaty, with or without
reservations', was predicted by Sen
ator Jaflles A. .Reed at a dinner
given in honor of himself and Sena
tor Hiram Johnson by New York
business men. 'Senator Johnson de
clared that the Lodge reservations,
while not wholly protecting the
United States, gave a measure of
protection and that' they were the
"irreducible minimum" on' which no
compromise could be made.
Senator Reed declared formal
peace could be secured by passage
of the Knox resolution which called
for ratification of the peace treaty
with the elimination on the league
. "The irreducible minimum of pro
tection to our country, said ben
ator Johnson, "must . sharply and
absolutely jnark the line. The neces
sity of this protection is conceded;
that it is the least that should Be
done is admitted.
"Compromise of the protection
thus essential leaves oup country and
its institutions menaced and im
perilled. Compromise with an ir
reducible ' minimum is abject sur
render. The senate,' nof only for
maintenance of its own dignity and
its high purpose, but because of its
lofty patriotism, can permit no sub
stantial modification or alteration
of the measure of protection it has
demanded and won."
Lodge Sends Telegram.
Senator Henry Cabot Loclge, in
a telegram, declared there were "cer
tain principles" involved in the sen
ate reservations to the peace-treaty
on which no compromise is possible.
Reservations as finally -agreed up
on, he said, were drafted by "those
who desired to have he treaty rati
fied," and "many senators who voted
for them made large concessions in
"The president," he said, "has
ever altered his position."
A telegram from Senator Knox
was also read in which he declared
if he voted to advise ratification of
the treaty he would 'feel he naf
compromised his Americanism, and
consciously refused to follow the
clearest convictions he had ever' en
tertained, upon a public question.

T0.PASS AGAIN ON
Permission Given Rhode' Island
To Test Validity of
Washington, Jan. 19. The supreme
court today decided to .pass on the
validity of both the federal prohibi
tion amendment, which became op
erative Saturday, and the act of con
gress prescribing its enforcement. '
The court's decision will be ren
dered on proceedings .to.be insti
tuted by Rhode Island, which was
given permission today, to bring an
original suit. Solicitor General
King, for the government, an
nounced he immediately "would pre
pare and file a motion asking -for
dismissal of the Rhode Island case
on the ground that the court lacked
jurisdiction. " .
The permission was granted by
Chief Justice White without, com
ment or without fixing any time for
hearing arguments in the case.'
Motion to-'. bring the suit was
filed by Attorney General Rice of
Rhode Island in response to a reso
lution adoptedNfcy the state legisla
ture authorizing him to take steps
to test" the validity of -npt only the
amendment, but also of the enforce
ment act. .
In briefs filed in -support of the
mgtion, Rhode Island authorities
questioned the validity of the ratifi
cation of the amendment and al
leged that the amendment was an
interference with the state police
powers and a violation of the fifth
constitutional amendment. They
also alleged that the amendment
wa,s "usurpatory, unconstitutional
and void." 9
Rhode Island was one'of'the
states that refused to ratify the
amendment. . "
