Does Not Fall at Tor-reon Fighting Resumed at "Cross of Rocks" ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH JUAREZ, Jan. 29. Five million Mexican dollars received up to today, is the amount which the rebels under General Villa possess to carry on their revolution. Tn addition they claim the possession of much personal property, stores, cattle and land confiscated from rich Mexican families, valued at many millions. The cash represents part of the wealth obtained within six months under the direction of General Villa. It was accumulated from forced loans on banks, merchants, mines on the Torrazas and Creel families and from taxation and import duties. Rebel Wders said it is impossible to estimate tiie actual wealth of the revolution, but if the money is realized on all the property now in their possession the proceeds will be sufficient to run the government in rebel territory for several years and the source is increasing. Mines and smelters are re-opening on :i basis by which the rebels get ten per cent of the profits. The money now in the rebel treasury is to be converted into a new issue of currency to replace the various kinds of paper money now in circulation. Villa's Operation. General Villa underwent an operation . today which was necessitated by a bullet wound received months ago. His condition is not serious. It is said he will be able to return to Chihuahua within a few days. "Although we expect a hard fight at Torreon," said Villa, "I would not be surprised if the defeat of the federals there would mean the downfall of Ku- rta. Unless he fails at Torreon, the sale-way to the south, we shall probably tight right to Mexico City." Federal Republic. DOUGLAS, Jan. 29. Official advices have been received of the repulse "f a federal column near Cruz de Pied-ras, northeast of Guaymas. They give the federal loss at hundred dead and IT, prisoners, number of wounded the not stated. The rebel loss is five dead and eight wounded. Among the killed is Col. Beg-ne. commander of the federal forces. About the Quarantine. Following the quarantine declared by the Douglas health authorities Monday against the. town of Agua Pricta, the Mexican officials stopped a train from Naeozari to Douglas, in Agua Prieta and compelled the passengers, Americans and Mexicans to alight and mingle with the crowd, which was prohibited from crossing the international boundary. Ordinarily the train is halted a few minutes to inspect baggage and then allowed to proceed across the line. The Mexicans declare one case of smallpox is not warrant for a quarantine. American passengers who came north on the train and were seen moving in the streets of the Mexican town, were evidently .trying in every possible manner to cross the line. "When the railroad men learned what the Mexican officials intended to do, it is said they sent word to the passengei-s to remain in the coaches, as the only chance of getting over the border.

Chief Justice Beatty of the state supreme court has granted Mrs. MeKenzie God-don, wife of the singer and clubman, a writ of error, which carries her fight for a vote to the United States supreme court.

NO CRISIS now AT HAND SAYS THE PRESIDENT Mr. Wilson Reiterates With Emphasis No Important Matters JNow lp Lmess Mexican Situation Be Considered Such WILL CONTINUE WAITING POLICY He Will Continue to Be Watchful, Depending Upon Day to Day Developments for Decisions as to Future Action 'ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCHl WASHINGTON, Jan. 29. President Wilson outlined informally today the status of those problems of foreign diplomacy which have been brought to public attention by his recent conference with the senate committee on foreign relations. He reiterated with emphasis that no crisis is at hand in any of the questions he discussed, unless the Mexican situation be construed in the nature of a perpetual crisis, brought always with the possibility of a sudden change and unexpected developments. Jn divulging some or the more Important facts concerning the American foreign policy, the president sounded a warning against the unwarranted speculation in the press on foreign questions, indicating that governments are frequently embarrassed by unfounded reports. The president made it clear that while he has taken up the relations with Mexico, Japan and England and general arbitration treaties at the same time with senators, those problems are not grouped together as having any bearing on the Mexican situation. He regarded them inter-related only in so far as he wished the senate,, foreign, .relations . .committee, to lake them under consideration as to I'oim and judgment on all points in- I voiced. With respect to Mexico, the president let it be known that the only settled part his policy at present, is to continue a course of watchful j waiting but this day to day eonvic-! tion is with him, subject to developments in the revolution-torn repub lic. He has not made up his mind to lift the embargo on arms but is considering arguments for and against such a course. The president pronounced as false the report that the Japanese government is supplying munitions of war to the Huerta government. 'Beneficent sunshine" and enchanting stock corporations, is the characterization applied to the trust policy of the democratic administration by republicans in the next debate in the senate. The policy of amicable agreements with accused corporations is also criticized, by the minority speakers. Senator Martinc. New Jersey, announced the existence of an oatmeal trust and said he did not know whether immediate steps are I being taken to prosecute, but. "I I know it is part of the policy of the democratic party to go for the trusts. We, go for them, dealing fairly, honestly and justly but not tenderly and kindly." "The plan that is being carried out with deliberation discourages me," Cummins rejoined. "We are going very slowly. I have not great confidence in the effort to readjust industrial conditions in the administrative offices of the government." Senator McCumber said all he could learn of the democratic policy was from the newspapers, which announced the trusts are to "gone after," but the party is "dealing gently, going very quietly and telling the trusts they need have no fear of being hurt." "While this gentle process of dealing with the trusts is being inaugurated," remarked Bristow, "the stock of corporations is rising continually under this beneficent sunshine of our present trust policy." Representations of the unprepar-edness for war and the annual war scare were assailed by Representative Sherley of Kentucky, when he presented the fortification bill to the house for general debate. He referred particularly to Admiral Vree-land's statement that the United States is not in a position to defend the Philippines. "The Island of Cor-regidor, commanding the entrance to Manila, is completely and strongly fortified and in a position to stand an attack for six months-without assistance from the outside," said Sherley. Secretary Daniels told the house naval committee that the internation al agreement for a total cessation of naval construction was preferable to the one year naval holiday. . He be lieved that for the present, the two new battleships should be the min iinum of the program for naval ef ficiency of the United States. WEATHER TODAY. . WASHINGTON, D. C.

At a short session of federal court in Tucson Monday, the United States department of justice will haul off and take another smash at the case of the Mexican Sonorists who last May smuggled war aeroplane into the troubled republic. Out of the eight or ten, indicted for conspiracy to pack the plane across the border, two are left, and these two will be brought up to listen to the lawyers argue a motion of the United States district attorney for the issuance of a removal order to the California district court. Francisco V. Anaya and Jose Esco-bosa, the former constitutionalist consul at Tucson and the latter his nephew will be brought before Judge "William H. Sawtelle while Joe Morrison asks for and probably receives an order for the marshal to take the prisoners to Los Angeles there to be tried before, the southern California district court on the conspiracy charge. That an aeroplane is munitions of war was definitely settled when Commissioner Chillum at Eenson ruled on this point in holding the Masson-Ana-ya-Dean et al crowd over to the federal grand jury. The grand jury in this case happened to be that one convening at Los Angeles. For: although the overt act the smuggling of the aeroplane occurred in Tucson and between there and the border, the conspiracy was hatched in I Los Angeles if conspiracy there was.

I To Confucianism fASSOCIATEO PRESS DISPATCH NEW YOKK. Jan. 2 a. Political rather than religious significance is i attached by officers of foreign mis- s'on organizations to the action of the Chinese administrative council in prescribing the worship of heaven and Confucius, by the head of the republic and there is no alarm for the property of the missions maintained by the American churches in China. American missionaries regret the dissolution of the Chinese parliament, and the recent monarchical tendencies shown by Yuan Shi Kai, but retain confidence in the repeated assurances the president has given of friendliness toward the Christian religion. "President Yuan Shi Kai is concerned that there has come a period of irreligion. He said the ethics of J Christianity is essential to the Chinese republic and nieces are now being educated in one of our schools in Peking," said Dr. F. M. North, secretary of the boanl of foreign missions of the Methodist church in charge of the Chinese field. "This does not mean that they have embraced Christianity, but a sign of Yuan Shi Kai's mood and wfn to .Hve reennitinn tn the " ",' i;.i " of our missions." Dr. A.

R C. DRYER, L. W. COGGINS. Seeretarv. GOMPERS SAYS FEDERATION IS NOT FOSSILIZED President of the 'American Federation of Labor Replies to Attack on Organization Made by Morer, McDonald and Others NOT REACTIONARY OR WORM-EATEN Climax is Expected Today When McDonald and Mover Promise to Address Mine Workers irf Reply to Gompers ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCHl INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 29. Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, defended his organization and its executive council before the convention of the United Mine Workers of America today, against charges made by Charles H, Mover, president of the Western Federation of Miners, Duncan McDonald, of Illinois, and others in the convention. Mr. Moyer charged that if the copper strike in Michigan failed, it would be due to the inactivity of the executive board of the American Federation o Labor. Mr. Gompers asserted that it would be impossible to levy an assessment for the copper strike of the miners in Michigan, and denied that the organization was "reactionary, fossilized, worm-eaten and dea-d." and that the executive council "is made up of boozefighters.' " After Gompers had concluded, McDonald announced he would speak to the convention in the morning and asked the Federation head if he would be in this city. Gompets said he would if possible. Moyer also announced he would address the convention tomorrow. ' Frank J. Hayes, vice president of the miners, introduced. Mr. Gompers. and explained that he appeared before the convention to answer charges against the federation and execu- . tive council. "Taking the newspaper reports as a criterion," Mr. Gompers began, "the most important work this convention here, that the American Federation of Labor "is reactionary, fossilized and wormeaten and dead. Is the newspapers' statement true9g" Amid cheers McDonald said: i "I made those statements and oth- : - r nice them." "Only McDonald answers," Mr. Gompers continued. "Of the eleven men who compose the executive council, eight are teetotallers, who never touch a drop of liquor. Two of the men are as moderate drinkers iis are any men who ever take a. drink. For myself, I take a glass of beer when the day's work is done. "Fossilized and dead mean the same, but I submit any organization cannot be these and at the same time reactionary, for. that means going backward. The history of the organization shows that it is not dead." Mr. Gompers denied that delegates from the United Mine Workers of America to the convention of tha American Federation of Labor have eqttal rank. I have explained this to President White, but he has not as yet seen fit to rescind his resignation, l hope this convention trill urge him to accept the position." President White has been suffering ! America. Before adjournment it was 0nonncel that the proposition tl . , , mCrease the salary of the president of the miners from $3,000 to $4,000 a year has been Dassed. President.
