EIj PASO, Tex., Sept. 28. The be
ginning of actual hostilities between
the divided Constitutionalist army
awaited tonight General Carranza's an
swer to General Villa, who has de
manded that he resign In favor of.Fer
nando Iglesias Calderon as first chief.
So far as could be learned here, how
ever, there has been established no
actual armistice, and Carranza's and
Villa's forces continued preparations
and movements toward each other.
The condition of the railroads and
other communications between Chihua
hua City, Villa's headquarters and Mex
ico City probably will delay the nego
tiation between the northern leader's
upokesrnen and Alvaro Obregon and
other of Carranza's representatives who
are expected to confer at Aguas Cali
entes. The meeting cannot take place
for several days, it was believed.
From all sides today came reports of
strong pressure, aside from Villa's de
mand, which is being brought to bear
on Carranza that he resign at once
as first chief of the revolutionary party.
Jose Santos Chocano, a Peruvian poet
and publicist, who for several months
has been traveling with both Carranza
and Villa, today telegraphed the former
that as a friend of the revolution he
deemed It highly necessary that he
resign at once. Partisans of Calderon
sprung up from all quarters and rep
resentatives of the old federal "Cienti
flco" party declared that his Installa
tion as provisional president would be
the best means of assuring at least
J. La. Canova, who has been acting
as investigator for the Washington
State Department arrived here today
from the south. George C. Carothers,
acting In a similar capacity, remained
at Villa's headquarters In Chihuahua.
Athough optimism was the keynote of
expressions, the Carranza and Villa
elements, as represented in Sonora,
continued their actual warfare in the
second battle since the official declara
tion of peace in Mexico. General Juan
Cabjal, named as military governor of
Konora. has returned here, declaring
that he has no quarrel with either side
and that he will enter private life, for
the time being. In the United States.
CARRANZA REPLIES TO VIIXA
Mexican Officials Optimistic Re
garding Outcome of Conefernce.
MEXICO CITY, Sept. 28. General
Carranza today answered a message
sent by General Francisco Villa's divi
sion of the army which, while pro
testing loyalty, asked the first chief of
the Constitutionalists to resign in favor
of Fernando Iglesias Calderon, thua
maintaining the honor of the constitu
tionalist cause and preventing blood
shed, anarchy and possibly interven
tion. While the text of General Carranza's
answer has not been made public. Gov
ernment officials are most optimistic
regarding the result which it may have.
It is semi-officially said that the gen
eral conference is to be held from Octo
ber 1 to October 5, when all differences
between General Villa and Carranza
will be amicably adjusted through an
understanding that no northern chief
shall be a candidate for either tem
porary or permanent president.
MARK IS MISSED BY MILE

Venus or a lying Mercury chopped off
at his waist. Long streamers of ivy
that during a century had crept higher
and higher up the wall of some noble
mansion until they were part of it,
still clung to it, although it was di
vided into a thousand fragments.
Of one house all that was left stand
ing was a slice of the front hall just
wide enough to bear a sign reading,
"This house is for sale, elegantly fur
nished." In some streets of the de
stroyed area I met no living person.
My feet kicking the broken glass was
the only sound. The silence, the gap
ing holes in the sidewalk, the some
times ghastly tributes to the power of
the shells, and the-complete desolation
made more desolate by the bright sun
shine, gave you a curious feeling that
the end of the world had come and
you were the only survivor. This im
pression was aided by the sight of
many rare and valuable articles with
no one guarding them. They were
things of price that one may net carry
into the next world, but which in this
are kept under lock and key.
In the Rue de la Universite at my
leisure I eould have ransacked shop
after shop, or from the shattered draw,
ing-rooms filled my pockets. Shopkeep
ers had gone without waiting to lock
their doors' and in houses, the fronts of
vhich were down, you see that in order
to save their lives the inmates had fled
at a moment's warning.
Outside the wrecked area were many
shops belonging to American firms,
but each of them had escaped injury.
They were filled with American type
writers, sewing machines and cameras.
A number of cafes bearing the sign
"American bar" testified to the nation
ality and tastes of many tourists.
I found our Consul, William Bardel.
at the Consulate. He is a fine type
of the German-American citizen and
since the war began with his wife and
son, has held the fort and looked after
the interests of both Americans and
Germans. On both sides of him shells
had damaged the house immediately
adjoining. The one across the street
had been destroyed and two neighbors
killed. The street in front of the Con
sulate is a mass of fallen stone and
the morning I called on Mr. Bardel a
shell had hit his neighbor's chestnut
tree, filled his garden with chestnut
burrs and blown out the glass of his
windows. He was patching them with
brown wrapping paper, but was chiefly
concerned because in his own garden
tho dahlias were broken.
During the first part "of the bom
bardment, when the firing became too
hot for him. Mr. Bardel had retreated
with his family to the corner of the
street, where are the cellars of the
Roderers champagne people. He has
lived six years in Rheims and he has
estimated the damage of the property
destroyed by shells at $30,000,000.
Mr. Bardel said that unless the seat
of military operations is removed the
champagne crop for this year will be
entirely wasted. It promised to be an
especially good year, but unless the
grapes are gathered this week the
crops will be lost.
In Rheims are stored nearly '50,000.

six of the best-known champagne

EMPRESS LAUGHS W
ALICE IIANSOJV'S GIGGLES PROVE
CONTAGIOUS FOB CROWD.
Songs and Dancing by Lee Rose and
Catherine Moon and Clever Farce,
"Maid Mary," Amuse.
Alice Hanson, the laugh girl, is as
full of giggles as Is the proverbial
pudding full of raisins, if it's a raisin
pudding. Alice heads the Empress bill
and leaves everyone laughing with her
and at her when she says au revoir.
Her name, she says, is Hazel Nut,
and she lives up to the last part of her
name. She has a deserted bride number
done with wilted bridal finery and a
midget who comes on as the missing
bridegroom and helps-sprinkle comedy.
Their burlesque on the peachy tango,
danced by Moon and Rose, who precede
Alice's, is a riot and particularly a hit,
since the different acrobatic steps of
the Moon-Rose act are faithfully imi
Alice has another song, about the
"White Hopes," done in a sweater and
boxing gloves, which she handles dan
gerously and dexterously as she wallops
an imaginery partner. . Her opening
number tells why she is a nut.
The dancing act of Lee Rose and
Catherine Moon is distinctly a novelty
in stage dancing of the whirlwind ac
robatic nature, strung along with
tango, maxixe and even the first of
the lot, turkey trotting. They dance
as one, in perfect unison, both are
graceful and occasionally they climax
a set of steps with a real thriller.
Rose sings, one song he shouldn't, or
at least, he should trim one verse.
A merry little farce is called "Maid
Mary," in which Mary isn't the maid
at all, but pretends she's the wife of
a gay young blade who is just awaken
ing from a pleasant "souse." To please
a friend Mary agrees to scare the
awakening one. She scares him to the
everlasting fun of the audience. Mary
is a dolly sort of girl, mighty pretty
and a keen little actress. She is Sera
Shields on the bill, and her pseudo hus
band is played most capably by a clever
comedian, Allen Miller. Bennie Junior,
as the "fix it" friend helps out on the

and a piano contribute a musical me

Night" song that appeals. Theo Bam

Juggler's fingers, close the bill with
an artistic act that has plenty of hu

There was a thrill in the atmosphere
at the Heilig Theater last night. There
was true British patriotism. There
was the strong love of men and women
for their fellow-men and the earnest
desire to help suffering humanity.
The occasion was the benefit per
formance of "Kitty MacKay" for the
British Red Cross and Prince of Wales
funds. Society turned out In num
bers and with a feeling of loyalty and
an enthusiasm that was electrical. The
benefit cleared about $600.
The "Star-Spangled Banner" and the
"Union Jack" were hung proudly, side
by side. Their color?, after all, were
just the same, only differently arranged.

tribute to both flags and to sing "Ood

The balconies and lobby were draped
in flags. The boxes, occupied by rep
resentatives of foreign lands were
adorned with the colors of those coun
tries. Every part of the British Isles
was represented by banner or flag.
The Belgium, Japanese, Russian and
French emblems touched those of Eng
land, Scotland, Ireland and the others
that pay homage to King George V,
while American Stars and Stripes
seemed to unite them all and form a
perfect harmony of rich coloring.
In the boxes were numbers of Port
land's most exclusive society and rep
resentatives of several of the foreign
powers. In the main body of the
house were noticed many of the city's
leading business men and their families,
many of them entertaining parties of
friends. Of these scores were formerly
residents of Great Britain.

The gowns worn by" the women in
the boxes and in the parquet stood out
in their rich coloring in harmonious
contrast to the patriotic display. So
cially, it was a gala night; but, above
