EL PASO. Tex.. Sept. 29. That ten
American cavalrymen of troop H. Sec
ond Cavalry, crossed into Mexico last
Saturday and began shooting at three
Mexican woodcutters is the version of
the International shooting Incident
near San Elliario. which has been giv
en out by the leflerai oiiic;a
.Tnnrez. To nrove their assertions,
Colonel Juan X. Vasquex. military com

woodcutters returned the rifle fire of
the American soldiers and rorcea mem

Line Riders Aid Woodcutter.
In one report of the affair received
'W th Federal officials of Juarez it
was said that three Mexican line riders
assisted the woodcutters in driving the
American soldiers off after the snoot
"The American soldiers, as proved
by the hat in the possession of the
military authorities of Juarez, tres
passed on Mexican territory." said the
Tnsncctor of Mexican Consulates,
Miguel E. Diebold, in a statement is
Biiod tonight. "In their hurried de
parture they left the hat about two
miles from the International boundary.
An Investigation is now being conduct
ed by the Mexican authorities and a
report of the affair will be made to
the respective authorities.
The woodcutters are alleged to have
reported to the Juarei municipal au
thorities that they were on the Mexican
side of the river with a wagon, cut
ting wood, when the American soldiers
appeared on the Mexican side of the
boundary with their arms.
Wagon Searched by Soldiers.
The troopers, said the report, fol
lowed the Mexicans about two miles
into Mexico. The soldiers finally
caught up to the woodcutters, it is al
leged, and searched the wagon. Then
It is said, they allowed the woodcutters
to depart, but as the Mexicans started
all the soldiers began shooting at them.
The woodcutters were armed with
rifles and immediately returned the
fire, finally succeeding in forcing the
United States troops to retreat to the
American side of the river.
The account of the occurrence that
reached this city from San Elizario
Saturday night was that the American
soldiers were on duty on the American
side of the border when SO Mexican
federal cavalry appeared on the Mexi
can side and opened fire on them with
out warning or provocation.
STRIKE HELD UNJUSTIFIED
President of ITnited Mineworkers
Ends Michigan Controversy.
I.VDIAXArOLIS, Sept. 19. President
John P. White, of the United Mine
Workers of America, held today that
the strike of the 3000 miners of Bay
lty and Saginaw. Mich., was not Justi
fied, as the original trouble was subject
to arbitration. President White also
ruled that the three miners whose dis
charge caused the strike should be
reinstated and allowed three days' pay
for the time they were discharged.
The strike was caused by the dis
charge of three miners, the Union de
claring that the mine owners violated
their contract In discharging the men.
At a conference in Columbus, O., be
tween the Union officials and the op
erators on September 22, President
White was appointed arbitrator in the
case and ordered the men to return to
work pending the decision. The hear
ing was heid here Friday and Presi
dent White reserved his decision until

then put up a large tent for the boys'
and girls' poultry and And additional
room for their hogs, goats and sheep.
Let not this exhibit lose your attention.
But always remember, always re
member, never forget, that before you
enter the fair gates you pass through
Tozlervllle, through a grove as no other
fair ground in the world has, and in
this grove about 400 tents, occupied by
about 2000 people and hizonner, the
Mayor. By all means call upon the
Mayor. I called on him once too often,
for this afternoon when I passed by
the municipal building I found hizonner
in bad humor. Somebody had crept
into the palace during the forenoon and
swiped the municipal corkscrew. And
I can aver that you can neither draw
a cork. from a bottle with your teeth
or profanity. I have seen it tried, seen
and heard. I left with the royal boot
close to my coat tails.
Mayor Shows Electric Hen.
As you enter the pavilion from the
north you will see a few steps to the
right a fine looking gentleman who is
also a Mayor, the Mayor of Union, Or.
I do not wish to disparage or belittle
in any way Mayor Tozier by compar
ing him with Mayor Withycombe, or
Mayor Bob, as his friends call him. Bob
Is a mere Mayor, elected by the citizens
of Union, just an ordinary, every-day
Mayor, a Mayor who tries to obey and
enforce the jaws as he finds them,
Mayor Tozier makes his own laws and
holds his office by divine right. But
Mayor Bob will be known to fame, for
he has invented, and patented, an elec
trical hen, a hen that lays an egg
every three minutes every 24 houra in
the year, if you keep "her" wound up
every day in the year except on St.
Patrick's day, for Bob is proud of his
race and would not allow even a hen
to work on that great day.
Perhaps the first thing upon entering
the grounds to attract the attention of
those who have visited former fairs
will be the splendid new machinery
hall, erected in place of the roofless,
floorless thing that formerly stood upon
the same site. The Legislature allowed
$3500 to build this structure it cost
twice that, but the implement companies
paid the difference. It is 100x200 feet,
and Is Jammed full of machinery and
Don't miss the best fair ever held In
the state. The races alone are more
than worth the time, trouble and ex
pense. Grab a Southern Pacific time
table and see when the next train leaves
Salemward and come down If only for a
day. Remember all Southern Pacific
trains atop right at the fair gates.

FRICK GETS FINEST ORGAN
Instrument Costing $100,000 Said
to Be 300 Years .Old.
FA RIS, Sept. 27. What is described
as the world's finest organ, an instru
ment nearly 300 years old. together
with some remarkable specimens of
carved woodwork from a room of a
house in Chester, England, have been
bought by an American dealer for a
wealthy collector, supposed to be Henry
C. Frlck. The price of the organ is
said to be $100,000.
The woodwork, which now is cross
ing the Atlantic, came from ono of
the houses in "The Rows." The room
It adorned was designed by Sir Chris
topher Wren, at the request of the mu
nicipality, for the city's Mayor. The
purchaser. Karl J. Freund, a New York
dealer, now is in Paris.
The carvings are extraordinary. Their
grace and richness are said to surpass
even those of the great show rooms at

The Instrument is of what now is
termed large cabinet size. Inside is the
maker's portrait and a statement as to
his age and honors. Saint-Saens played
on the instrument years ago and pro
nounced it to be almost miraculous in
smoothness, delicacy, and tenderness of
tone. Mr. Freund found the organ In
an ancient chateau In the Ardennes
region of France, where, he says, it
has been for more than 200 years.

Bixby was charged in the indictment
with an unnameable offense against

American Girls Xow.
NEW YORK. Sept. 25. Before the
White Star liner Olympic sailed for
Southampton Lady Anne Savllle. bet
ter known as the Princess Lowenstein
Werthelm of Paris, characterized the
dancing she had seen in this country
"I never saw such dancing in my
llfo as I have seen in this country,"
she declared. "It is disgraceful. It Is
not only vulgar, but it is killing to the
girls. They are at It day and night
and if they keep up this terrible style
of dancing these new tangoes and
such they will not have am- figures.
"It Is destroying their health, and
I might say their morals as well. If
they continue they will he moral and
physical wrecks. 4 think the popular
dances I have seen are nothing more
than an abortion of good taste, and
which will ruin the moral sense. If
they keep this up the American girls
will fall into 111 fame abroad. They
should have recreation of a higher
moral tone than the dances that ap
pear to be so popular. I think this
far-seeing government should have a
censor for these dances or have them
under some supervision or control."
