weeks he has perfected his formula.
The gas was tried first on resi

from colds or touches of the flu.
They were relieved immediately.
His next big work was in giving
relief to a soldier who had been
gassed during the war. The gas
had drawn together the lobes of the

AT AGUA PRIETA
Immigration Office and Post
office Also Taken Over by
State Employes Pledge'
Loyalty to Government.
Douglas, Ariz., April 11. The
customs house at Agua Prieta,
across the line from Douglas, was
seized late Saturday in the name of
the Sonora state government and
tonight armed men are guarding
the building. The immigration of
fice and the postoffke also have
been taken over by state authori
ties. The employes of the customs of
fice and of the other federal depart
ments have declared their loyalty to
the state government Orders have
been issued to arrest and imprison
Jose M. A- Tostodo, federal customs
inspector in charge, should be at
tempt to return to Agua Prieta. He
left for Mexico City two weeks ago
and a telegram from him stated he
would return home by way of 1
Paso and Douglas.
All ablebodied men in Agua Pri
eta between the ages of 18 and 60
have been organized into a state
militia and are ready on short no
tice to assemble to protect the town
against invading forces. Gen. J. M.
Pino, lieutenant governor of So
nora when Gen. P. Elias Calles was
governor, is in command of these
men and he said he had 2,000 men
at his call, with plenty of arms and
ammunition, and ,he declared It
would be impossible for a Carranza
force to capture the town unless
federal troops were permitted to
come through the United States and
he did not believe such a request
would be granted.
Trenches have been dug on the
eastern, western and southern out
skirts of the town and there are 200
militiamen on watch in them.
J. M. Arredondo, Mexican consul,
here, when asked if Sonora had de-1
clared itself separate from the tea-i
eral government, said he knew,
nothing whatever in regard to it.
"It is merely a misunderstanding
that soon will be cleared up," he
Last Thursday $150,000 in Ameri
can gold was shipped from Douglas
bank to the credit of the Carranza
government in New York City, the
money having been accumulating!
since remittances were stopped by
General Calles 10 days ago, when
he was in Augua Prieta. The cus
tom of sending the money to the
American side of the line will be
abandoned by the state government
and hereafter the custom collections
will be sent to Hermosillo.
The action of the state of Sonora,
according to General Pino, is in no
sense a secession from the republic,
but is the severing of relations with
the Carranza government "Sonora
will rejoin her sister states whenever
the central government becomes
such as to warrant the return," he
May Ask U. S. To Intercede.
One of the leading citizens of So
nora may be sent to Washington to
ask the United States government
to intercede in an effort to adjust
differences between the Sonora au
thorities and the federal government,
it was said, after a meeting of po
litical leaders here late today.
Nogales officials said the consti
tution of Mexico, with its strong
guarantees of state's rights, pro
hibits sending federal troops into a
state without consent of that state.

IN SHONTS CASE
Alleges Quarrel Between Trac

Arose Over Daughter.
New York, April 11. Mrs.
Amanda Thomas, defendant in a
suit for $1,000,000 for alleged aliena
tion of the affections of Theodore P.
Shonts, former head of the Inter
borough Rapid Transit company,
filed an amended answer to the suit
Saturday. She produced documen
tary evidence purporting to show
Mr. and Mrs. Shonts executed a
private separate agreement in 1917.
The answer alleges the quarrel
between Mr. Shonts and his wife,
who brought the suit against Mrs.
Thomas, residuary legatee under
Mr. Shonts' will, arose out of, the
marriage of Mary Theodora Shonts,
youngest daughter, to the Duke De
Chaulnes of France.
In a letter alleged to have been
written to his daughters in Paris,
introduced in the answer. Mr.
Shonts accused his wife of "black
mailing methods." and "a systematic
campaign of villification and slander,
a campaign of lies too. low and vile
for decent people to repeat. He
also attacked Mrs. Shonts' social
ambition as "of a character not in
keeping with the ideals of a plain
citizen of the United States." He
declared his aversion to foreign al
liances. Postmaster Victim

Mr. Fanning is survived by the

The funeral will be Tuesday

Catholic church, with requiem high

Charles E. Fanning was born 66
years ago in Washington, D. C, the
son of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Fanning.
He removed to Omaha 36 years ago,
engaging in the contracting business

ought to do, being a candidate for
the party nomination for governor.
Thus, there will be no break in the

Wood has already campaigned
through the state. Senator Harding
will speak here Tuesday, and his
friends are emphatic that he will
have some sharp things to say. The
senator, like his managers, is to
cast courtesy to the winds, use
words and sentences of no unmistak
able meaning and handling without
gloves those who are planning to
divide the delegation.
Injecting Rough Stuff
Harding's managers say it would
have pleased them to see the pri
mary campaigns in all the states
conducted between republican candi
dates in am amicable manner. They
blame Wood management for in
jecting "rough stuff." but show no
disposition to turn the other cheek.
Some of the leading Harding men
say that Wood will be all but out
of the race before the primaries are
held here. They think that he will
be defeated by Governor Lowden
in Illinois next week, and by Gen
eral Pershing in Nebraska on April
Won't Turn Down Favorites.
This expectation is based on the
belief that the states which have
candidates of such distinction as
Lowden and Pershing will decline
to turn their native sons down to
give their votes to men from other
states whose chances are no better
if as good as those of their own
