CARRANZA :irst Chief Asserts Failure to Recall Troops Creates Suspicion of Real Purposes of the United States. WASHINGTON', May 31. Elisco Ar-.-edondo, Mexican ambassador designate, today delivered to the state department a note from General Car-ranza in which the latter demands an explanation for the action of the United States In keeping Us troops in Mexico. The note repeats the demand firmly made that the troops be withdrawn at once. Carranza very plainly states in the note that the failure to recall the troops creates a suspicion of the real intentions of the United States government. He says that if the intentions of this government are sincere the troops will be ordered out of Mexico at once. Upon returning to the Mexican embassy Arredondo discussed the demands made by Carranza. "The note demands a definite explanation of the purpose of the United States in keeping Its troops in Mexico," he said. "General Carranza says 'In my Judgment there is no reason for their being there.' General Carranza points out that President Wilson has repeatedly declared in his public ut terances and in the diplomatic corres h. m a a A ft r" r ft I r ava - a" , 13 ..OCCUPY THREE t-ORTS LaalAKD DEMIRHISSAR XM&nik mi IMPORTANT TROOP MOVEMENTS BY BULGARS REPORTER NEAR XANTHI AND LEFT BANK OFTHE River mesta v EN N BEACH TEUTONS GAINING IN SUPREME EFFORT TO BREAK VERDUN LINE infantry FNfiAGEMENT ON LEFT BANK OF ff.VARPAK REPORTED. la ' 1 J JIUII2K StntsM 3?

The supreme court today rendered an opinion in the matter of Henry Rosenberg's application for a writ of certiorari to review the letting of ABbury Tark's bathing and bath houses privileges to the firm of Mitchell and Fry, in which the court saya the return on the writ can not be found. In this situation tha matter is not before the supreme court, the latter points out. The opinion adds that the record may be corrected, and if It is not, then the proceedings are liable to dismissal. The public ground commission of Asbury Park awarded the bathing privileges in 1912 and Rosen berg as a citizen and taxpayer considers the city to have lost by the transaction.

He says that the attitude of the American government and the course it is now pursuing leave room for suspicion as to its real intention." "Then there is a lengthy discussion as to the duties that fall upon both governments to patrol the borders and places blame for the recent raid squarely upon the United States government. He says the matter of patrol ing along the frontier is the duty of both the Mexican and the United States gov ernments but that the troops should resident remain on their respective territory. One of the glaring faults of the present patrolling system is the leaving unprotected such places as Glen Springs. This Incident is pointed out in the note us an illustration otilie failure of the methods now being pursued.

There was no mistaking the signs In Asbury Park yesterday. For once the Memorial day story cannot be overwritten for the crowds were of such proportions as to constitute a midseason throng. Many of the visitors, of course, were down for the day only and to bring them here several special trains were put on the short schedule. The motorists were here by the hundreds and New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland license tags were almost as numerous as the New Jersey tags.

Declaring his act did not, eventually, mean an Increase of liquor license in Wall township, Judge Lawrence on Monday granted a license for the summer months only, May SI to Oct 31, to the Frank F. Clayton Co., composed of Clayton and John A. Biggett, for their picnic and recreation grounds on the Belmar-Manasquan road, oposlte Sea Girt. Judge Lawrence said that he had a definite plan in mind in reference to Wall township; that he expected to carry that plan out, but he reserved the right to announce the program later. The granting of the license was strongly opposed by the Wall township W. C. T. V.. headed by Mrs. Marietta Allen of Manasquan. Previous conduct of the place by Mr. Clayton without a license was assailed by the remon strants, and the activities of Mre. Allen were inquired into to some extent. While not having any bearing upon the caso in court, probably the most interesting morsal of news was that brought out at the hearing was the admission made by Mrs. Allen that Harry Mich-elsohn, a Belmar liquor dealer, contributed $100 to the W. C. T. U. fund about a year ago to aid in opposing the transfer of a license from a man named Rice to Solomon Weinstein at Belmar. fWeinstein, it appeared, desired to rnange tne location or tne Kice oot-tling plant to a location nearer Mich-elsohn's place of business. The fact of the Michelson contribution was forced from Mrs. Allen by Judge Lawrence while she was on the witness stand.
