Barney Brannum, of Piqua, •\vill be placed on trial in the Woodson county district court at Yates Center /Oext Monday on the charge of murder in the first degree. Brannum at present is at liberty under $10,000 bond. The nature of his defense has not been indicated but the persistency with which reports come concerning Brannum's life long friendship with his victim^— if he fired the fatal shot—Indicate that the showing will be self-protection. The quarrel which cost the life of Henry Brandmj-^r occurred in his pool hall at PiqUa late last fall. In a statement before his death, taken as he lay in St. John's hospital awaiting the surgeons who were to perform an operation in the hope of saving his life, Brandmyer told of a day ahd night drinking. He said both he and Brannum partook liberally of a certain cider until they became under the in- fhience of it. An altercation arose over the payment of a small sum alleged to be due Brannum's son for service performed^Jn-the pool hall. During this controversy, Hrandniyer said, Brannum shot him. The dying man's statement said that he did not know that Brannum was armed or angry and that he w.-s not. Brandmyer lived lor several days afteT the shooling. Frank R. Forrest, former county attorney. Sheriff Ed. J. Dunfee, Dr. J. Siitcliffe, Mark Fullinwider and'oth­ ers, have been' summoned as • witnesses.

' The corimunlcation to Carranza which was idrafted after conferences between President Wilson, Secre' Bryan and Council Lansing, guarded with secreCy pending word from Carranza concerning Iiiia attitude. It was s^id by officials that tbe note contained the strongest repce- sentations t^at have ever been made to Carranz4 and'indicates that the American government is rapidly losing patience with bis Indifference at the objectionable acts of Gen.

Secretary Bryan stated that the placing of an embargo on all abip- ments.of mjvinitlons of war to Mesico had not be^ considered in the |ll«8- ent situatiort.
