The correspondent tells of the BrllUh
attempts against the Turkish lines on
June 21. when the Turkish casualties
reached a total of 7000 and the fighting
luted from dawn to dark on the long
est day of the year. The result was
some gains for the allies.
"In one trench there was a temporary
shortage of ammunition." says the
chronicler, "but the troops fought with
stones, sticks and fist. At the end of
the day some 00 yards of Turkish
trenches had been taken. One trench.
200 yards long and 10 feet deep, was
brim full of Turkish dead. They were
valiant, those men now dead.

TARIS. July 2. General Forfirio
Diaz, ex-president of Mexico, died at
7 o'clock tonight.
General Diaz' wife, Senora Carmen
Romero Rubio Diaz, and their son,
Porfirio Diaz, Jr.. and the latter' s wife,
were at -the bedside when the end
General Diaz bad been in failing
health Kince reaching Europe in 1911
after his resignation from the pres
idency of Mexico following the Madero
revolution. Last Fall he was ill at
Biarritz, France, but was reported to
have recovered. He had consistently
declined to comment on the passing
phases of the Mexican situation.
General Diaz began to fail rapidly
about two weeks- ago, and while his
death was not unexpected, owing to
his advanced age and recent, failing
.health, the crisis came suddenly.
w"Trfirio Diaz. Jr., and his wife Here
summoned hastily and arrived at the
bedside only a few moments before
the end, which came at 7 o'clock to
night. Age Thought Death Cause.
Colonel Diaz, in announcing the
death of his father, said that he was
unable to give the nature of the mal
ady, but expressed the opinion that
a complication of diseases due to ad
vanced age was the cause.
Two tragic circumstances marked
the death of the exiled ruler. Owing
to the troubled stats in Mexico it has
been judged impossible to send the
body home with all that ceremony
which would have befitted one of the
greatest figures In Mexican history;
and further. Colonel Porfirio Diaz, Jr.,
baa tried in vain to Inform his sisters,
Senora Ignacio de la Torre and Senora
Ttincon Gallardo, who are now In Mex
ico, of the deith of their father.
Not less tragic perhaps is the fact
that not one of those whom General
Diaz raised VP to be his assistants in
governing Mexico and who prospered
and grew rich in the shadow of his
greatness were with him when he died.
The end items to have been brought
about by a severe attack of grippe last
year. Tbis Illness also left the aged
exile almost blind. Nevertheless, he
was accustomed to walk out daily dur

.Simple I.lfe Is Led.
General Diaz lived here in the great
est simplicity, occupying a modest
apartment, in striking contrast to the
great houses and retinue of servants
maintained by some of his friends who
left Mexico with him.
No decision has yet been made con
cerning the final disposition of the
body or the date of the funeral.
General Diaz was 85 years of age
and of an old Spanish family, part
Indian.' Educated for the priesthoodr
he took law, and his military career
began at the outbreak of the American
As a Brigadier-General he was the
chief thorn In the side of the French
forces, when, taking advantage or the
Civil War in the United States, they
attempted to place Archduke Maxi
milian of Austria on the throne of a
Mexican empire. Diaz harassed the
enemy constantly, and In June. 1867,
captured Mexico City with his forces.

Lord Curzon Tells House Allies
Should Gain Advantage in Both
Men and Supplies Before
End of Present Year.
LONDON. July 2. Introducing the
munitions bill 1- the House of Lords
today. Lord Curzon announced that the
first week of the campaign made to
speed up the manufacture of arms and
munitions resulted in the enrollment
of -46,000 volunteer munition workers.
He was confident. Lord Curzon added,
that before the end of the year the
advantages In both men and material
would be decisively on the side of
Great Britain and her allies."
Lord Curzon said the present situa
tion was one of grave anxiety. It was
not too much to say that the country
was In great peril. Events and recent
statements had removed the scales from
everyone's eyes, he said.
This was not a time, he said, for a
critical or censorious attitude, but the
time to pass the bill which would en
able the organization of a rapid supply
of munitions and to go ahead, make up
the leeway and put matters straight.
After a few remarks had been made
by Baron Weardale, who criticised the
remissness of the late government and
placed the responsibility of it on Pre
mier Asquith. the munitions bill was
passed in all its stages.

certain trenches in the Dardanelles
operations which complete the rapture
of that part of the Turkish line gained
by the French on June 21.
' The full text of the statement fol
lows: "General Sir Ian Hamilton reports
that on June 2'J hostile columns mov
ing west from North Achi Baba and
south from Killd Kahr toward the
Turkish right flank indicated that the
enemy was preparing for a counter
attack against a position we captured
on the previous day. During the even,
ing two mine galleries in front of our
right center were blown in. after which
the enemy subjected the trenches to a
heavy rifle and machine gun (ire for
two hours. After a lull and another
outburst of tire, a determined attack
was made against the left of our po
sition with the bayonet. This attack
was- repulsed with a heavy loss to the
"On the southern front the Turks
made a concerted attack along the
coast, where K. M. S. Wolverine, a de
stroyer, got searchlights and guns onto
the main body and caused a heavy loss.

"To the east the attack waa pressed
closer under heavy artillery Are. but
Anally was checked about 40 yards
from our parapet. Bomb attacks and
intermittent shelling continued, but
no further general attack was made,
and at 6:30 A. M. the Kreiij moved out
and by 7:20 A. M. had taT.n a strong
system of entrenchments immediately
in front of the left center of the line
called by them Quadrilateral.
"A number of Turks were driven out
of th! trenches by the French bom
bardment, and much execution was done
during their retreat. ubeiuently
trenches adjacent to the quadrilateral
to the south were captured after more
serious fighting, thus completing the
capture of all of that part of the
enemy's line required to round out the
gaina made by the French on June 31.
The enemy's losses everywhere were
considerable. The captured positions
are being consolidated."
The British pre.s representative in
the Dardanelles sends a dispatch by
way of Alexandra, dated from the latter
placo Friday. In which he describes the
battle of Achl Baba. This began with
an allied advance June 4, and the cor
respondent says it still continues. (

The correspondent again emphasises
the difficulty of the allied advance
against "an almost impregnable nat

tenacity and bravery of the Turks.
"The force drawn up against the
allies." he says. "Is the flower of the
Turkish army, which, notwithstanding
casualties that must already amount to
70,000. is fighting valiantly and desper-.
