"''Leaders Flee Anti-American
Feeling Is Not Marked.
EL, PASO, Tex.. Juna 22. Although
the expected attack on the Mexican
custom house at Naco, Sonora, has been
frustrated "by the arrival of soldiers
from Cananea, the entire Mexican bor
der, from Cananea to Cludad Porfirio
Diaz, opposite Laredo, Tex., is in a state
of revolutionary ferment and out
breaks are feared at a dozen places.
All available troops have been de
tailed along the borders, with orders to
suppress all disturbances' with an Iron
hand. Principal reliance is being
placed on the rurales, organized by
President Diaz himself, and recognized
as his ardent supporters and the most
. efficient troops in the Mexican army.
Citizens Pressed Into Service.
Many citizens have been pressed Into
service and armed to protect govern
ment funds at the custom houses along
the border.
At Naeo, Sonora. the government
funds removed to United States terri
tory Monday night for protection, have
been taken back to Mexico and the
Mexican officials and women and chil
dren who fled to Arizona soil have re
turned to their homes'. The troops sent
from Cananea are quartered In the
warehouse of the Cananea Copper Com
pany, and are making preparations for
B.n extended stay. Two hundred addi
tional troops are held in readiness at
Cananea to march to Naco at a mo
ment's notice.
Citizens Protect Town.
Commissarlo Cublllas has purchased
B.11 available arms at Naco, Arizona,
and has armed a body of citizens to
protect the town.
Reinforcements have been received
by Colonel Kosterlltzsky, in command
at Cananea. This has enabled him to
spread details of troops along the bor
der to Intercept smuggled arms. He
has ordered the house-to-house search
Tor arms continued in all the Northern
Sonora villages.
Three burros were seized by masked
men on the United States side of the
border Sunday night and loaded with
ammunition, which was carried across
Into the San Jose Mountains. A squad
of rurales is In pursuit of the party.
Serious Disturbances Occur.
Serious disturbances are reported to
have taken place at Cludard Porfirio
Diaz, Coahulla, where the revolutionary
leaders have fled to Eagle Pass to es
fcape arrest.
It is reported by Mexican officials
that newspapers printed in Spanish on
the American side of the border have
been a large factor in stirring up the
discontent now finding expression.
The movement has been singularly
free from expressions of animosity to
Americans, in marked contrast to the
election riots' of four years ago, where
an anti-American feeling was strong.
most conservative concerns in New
York, has been absorbed by the Cry
goods trust. The United Dry Goods
Companies, a syndicate with a capital
stock of $51,000,000. backed by J. Pier
pont Morgan, has acquired the controll
ing Interest In the long-established nrm
and an important step in carrying out
of a scheme to dominate the entire
dry goods business of the country has
been taken.
The price paid for the interest has
not been made pujilic, but it is under
stood to be one of the largest ever
paid for a business of this description
in New York.
Ever since the death of Edward P.
Hatch, president of Lord & Taylor, in
Burlington, "Vt., last September, the
trust has been trying to buy out the
old firm, but until recently the amountJ
offered was not large enough, irately
there has been so marked an improve
ment in business that men backing the
United Dry Goods Companies have con
cluded that they could afford to pay
the figure asked by the Lord & Taylor
directors.
Edward P. Hatch, Jr., son of the late
president of the company and himself
a director, would not give the details
of the sale today and said he could not
make an announcement now.

Indications Are That Kitsap County
Will Go "Dry."
SEATTLE, .Wash., June 22. Local
option elections were held in three
towns and the unorganized territory
of one county In the Puget Sound dis

Bremerton, the Navy-Yard town,
went "wet" by a vote of 620 to 239.
Under a contract with the Navy De
partment, the City Council is pledged
not to license more than five saloons,
so today's election will not change con
ditions there.
Port Orchard, another town not far
from the Navy-Yard, voted in favor of
licensing saloons 108 to 80, but Charles
ton, a small town between Bremerton
and Port Orchard, remained "dry" by
a vote of 121 to 108.
Scattering returns from the unor
ganized territory of Kitsap County, In
which these towns are located, indicate
that it will go "dry" by a fair" margin.

town on the American side of the in
ternational boundary on the Great
Northern Railway, voluntarily decided
tonight to Issue no saloon licenses and.
ss a result, four saloons now there will

.SEATTLE, Wash., June 22. (Spe
cial.) That Mrs. Bert W. K.ersh is an
intimate friend to whom she had ren
dered every assistance at the time of
her separation from her husband, was
admitted by Mrs. Jesse P. Webb, wife
of the man who is accused of the mur
der of W. A. Johnson, In Portland,
when seen at her home, 212 Eleventh
avenue, this evening.
. "Mrs. Kersh was very intimate both
with myself and my girls," said Mrs.
Webb. "We were neighbors in Ballard
and when the trouble came up between
Mrs. Kersh and her husband we helped
her out all we could. I do not want
to talk about the trouble between Mr.
and Mrs. Kersh, because it is none of
my affair, but I will say Mrs. Kersh
was not to blame. The statement that
Mrs. Kersh and Webb eloped is ridic
ulous. Mrs. Kersh went to San Fran
cisco immediately after leaving her
husband, while Webb and a? linotype
operator named Frank Bell went to
Vancouver, B. C.
Mrs. Kersh is a fine little woman
and I do not beleve that she and Mr.
Webb have ever been other than
friends. When Mrs. Kersh was ill in
the Seattle General Hospital I would
send Webb up to her with delicacies
when I could not go myself. Mrs.
Kersh is a nurse and, after she left
Kersh she supported herself and her
little boy by nursing.
T do not understand how Webb came
to be In Portland. I received a letter
from him the other day postmarked
Spokane, and he did not Bay anything
about going to Portland. He had been
working in Spokane but not steadily.
He seemed rather discouraged and
spoke of returning to" Seattle."
Webb has two daughters, one 18, the
other 16. Both are vehement In defense
of their father. Bert W. Kersh, former
husband of Mrs. B. W. Kersh, left tonight
for Portland, where he expects to ob
tain possession of his little 7-year-old
son who Is now in custody of the Port
land police. .
To his fellow workers In the line crew
who were working with him near Forty
fifth street and Wallingford avenue to
day, B. W. Kersh said he had had no
knowledge of his wife's whereabouts for
some 'time. In regard to Jesse P. Webb
Kersh said that he had known Webb for
a long time and that two years ago he
had furnished him with money to go to
Alaska.
A year ago Webb returned end was laid
up witn a Droiten leg. At mat time,
said Kersh, Mrs. Kersh took care of
Webb and it was then that the two
formed an attachment which ended in
the Kersh separation.
Kersh said that he and his wife be
came acquainted with Webb soon after
they came to Seattle from Vancouver,
B. C, in the Summer of 1903. Last
August Kersh and his wife separated.

C0RT HURRYING TO WEST
Musical Comedy Home Required for
Plays Which Will Be Presented
Here by Recently-Formed Or
ganization HoIIig Busy.
Portland is to have another" new theater.
to cost In the neighborhood of $125,000,
which Is to be completed positively by
next April. This is the gist of an an
nouncement made last night by Calvin
Helllg,. who, with John Cort and others,
recently organized the Theatrical ' Man
agers' Association and will hereafter
book independently star " attractions all
over the country.
A telegram was received from Mr.
Cort last night, to the effect that the
new theater, In -"addition to the new
Heilig and the new Baker, Is impera
tive in Portland by April, 1911. He
said he had secured more shows than
can be taken care of here, and for that
reason work, looking toward the con
struction of another theater In Port
land, must be begun at once.
The following is Mr. Cort s message:
Start immediately new theater for musi
cal shows. Helllg Theater time entirely
nilea, ana must nave new. nouse by April,
lull, sure. Try to raise half amount there:
will furnish balance here. Have more shows
than we can take care of. The fight la all
over. Leaving for home Thursday.
Just as soon as a suitable site can
be . found here work will be started,
according to a statement made by Mr.
Heilig last night. Several sites are
already in mind,, and It may be that
one of these may be selected. Where
they are Mr. Heilig did not care to say.
The new theater will be built to ac
commodate musical comedies and pop
ular-price shows. The Heilig will be
given over to star attractions only,
and the Baker will play stock.
After September 1 there will be but
three theaters available in Portland,
these being the Heilig-, the Baker and
the Bungalow.
The old Baker will be torn down dur
ing July, and the Bungalow will be
out of commission, with the rest of the
frame theaters in Portland, by April 1,
1911, this being the time limit set by
the city authorities for frame show
houses in Portland. The Baker Stock
Company, according to Mr. Heilig, will
start In the Baker on September 1, and
will continue permanently. He said:
-"This new theater will be absolutely
modern In every respect, and I believe
that it will fill a long-felt want in
Portland. It will cost In the neighbor-
hood of $125,000."
rupted by questions from the crowd, and
Dr. Wilson was compelled several times
to appeal to the audience for silence.
When Colonel Hofer made his closing re
mark a man in the audience Insisted
on taking Dr. Wilson's side of the argu
ment. "I came here to debate this question
with Dr. Wilson and not with the entire
Methodist conference," said the colonel,
and at this Juncture Dr. Wilson arose and
stated to the crowd that Colonel Hofer
is a personal friend of his and requested
that the interruptions cease. After this
there we.re no further interruptions.
After the debate a resolution was
unanimously passed asking Dr. Wilson
and Colonel. Hofer to hold a series of de
bates in the future under the direction
of tlje Civic Federation. Both the Colonel
and Dr. Wilson agreed to debate the
same question again in Portland and also
to hold a number of public discussions
of the liquor question at different towns
in the state. It is probable that arrange
ments will be made within the next week
for the two men to tour the state to
