Mexicans Killed Only After
Grim Battle for Lives
i in Box Canyon.
PURSUIT LASTS 24 HOURS
Haiders Surprised by Deputies as
About to Swoop on Ranch la
Texas General Dies Only
After Being Hit Four Times.
SIERRA BLASCA, Tex.. Sept. 1. The
story of the 24-hour manhunt, which
ended in the death of General Orozco
in the Green River Canyon, between
the Eagle and High Lonesome Moun
tains. Monday, reads like a page from
a border romance. The chue was
through the wildest part of the Big
Bend country. Twenty-four ranch
owners, cowboys, custom-house officials
and troopers of the Thirteenth Cavalry
The news that raiders were in the
violnity spread along, the rural tele
phone circuit Sunday noon. The raiders
were then considered merely another
party of outlaws who had operated
during the last four years. At th
warning, every ranchhouse became i
cene of -activity with preparations to
ride to whatever ranch was attacked.
Deputies Surprise Raiders.
The raiders were discovered as they
approached the Love ranch Sunday aft
ernoon. The Mexicans galloped to the
pump station on the ranch, where they
were surprised by Deputy Sheriffs it.
C Love and vV ill Shock.
Orozco and his companions sent a
shower of shots at the deputies and
made a running fight for liberty.
A posse of ten men organized quickly
here and galloped to the Love ranch
and there picked up the trail of Love
and the deputy sheriff, who clung to
the trail of the raiders, firing shot for
ehot until darkness closed in. As each
ranchhouse was passed additions were
made to the posse.
Trail Picked Up at Dawn.
The trail at night ran through the
Eagle Mountains over perilous paths
on high ridges. When dawn broke the
posse found it still held the trail, which
led across a plain to Green River Can
yon, in the High Lonesome Mountains.
At the entrance to the canyon the
posse found a campflre still glowing,
and an advance body was thrown out
to pick up the Mexicans. By 3 o'clock
the advance guard returned with news
that the Mexicans were encamped in a
box canyon, apparently feeltng secure
from pursuit. Their horses were, un
tsaddled and hobbled at some distance
irom the campfire.
The posse climbed the rugged sides
of the mountains until they gained a
ridge around the canyon, and a volley
was poured down upon the Mexicans.
Orosco Makes Last Duh.
One Mexican was killed and the rest
dashed for the protection of boulders
and returned the fire. The posse
killed one of the remaining four at the
next volley. General Orozco and a
companion then attempted to Becure
the shelter of a small draw.
Orozco's companion was riddled with
bullets as he stepped from the shelter
of his rock. Orozco nearly gained the
draw, when he was struck by four bul
lets. The remaining Mexican for some time
returned shot for shot from behind a
boulder. Presently he made a dash to
climb the side of the canyon. He had
ascended some distance, when a volley
tumbled him, dead, to the rock, basin
6ERHAH LAUDS WILSON
BERLIN PAPEB ' PUBLISHES MOST
Personality of President Deolared More
Illuminated In Arabic Matter; T. R.
and Bryan Both Criticised.
BERLIN, via London. Sept. 1. The
National Zeitung publishes today a
leading article under the heading:
"Wilson, Bryan and Roosevelt."
which is noteworthy for its friendly
tone and for the ungrudging admiration
expressed for President Wilson.
The article says that discussions of
the Arabic affair have been in a quieter
tone since Count von Bernstorff, the
CJerman Ambassador at Washington,
. presented his note to the American
Government, to delay action until Ger
many has bad the opportunity of pre
senting its side. Even the anti-German
newspapers admitted the justice
of this request, the article says, and
there is now no obstacle to friendly
discussions of differences.
The personality of President Wilson
bas been illuminated more strongly
than over before, the National Zeitung
ays, during the exciting days through
which America has just passed. The
Tresident will appear to many in a new
light. Never was his position more dif
ficult than during the Arabic crisis,
"when Mr. Bryan was calling on
America for peace at any price and
Colonel Roosevelt waa summoning them
to war against Germany."
President Wilson is pictured in the
article as standing between the two
rivals, whose activities threatened to
bring about such a situation that the
President might make his attitude to
ward Germany dependent on domestic
"That President Wilson withstood
the temptation and may be counted on
to withstand it further must be ac
knowledged," the newspaper says, "not
withstanding the fact that the German
people certainly have reason to be dis
satisfied with his attitude in the mat
ter of submarine warfare."
Mr. Wilson is characterized as a more
clever politician than "the unlucky
Bryan and the astute Roosevelt."
SPIRIT CONSULTING VALID
Washington Supreme Court Rules
Against Sons In Will Case.
OLTMPIA, Wash., Sept. 1 (Special.)
Belief in spiritualism "or any other
religion" is no evidence of insanity,
the Washington Supreme Court has
ruled, declining to set aside the will
of the late Mrs. Nancy Hanson, who
died in Lewis County recently at the
as:e of 79. leaving her $38,000 estate In
trust to B. H. Rhodes, an attorney.
Sons of Mrs. Hanson contested the
will on testimony to the effect that the
aged woman consulted the spirits fre
quently, particularly as to the disposi
tion of her property, and that she pro
fessed a lively Interest In current poli
tics, insisting that all political - news
be read to her. especially any articles
concerning Theodore Roosevelt,

All Rrtrular Ships Meant.
Secretary Lansing interpreted "liner"
as used in the letter, to mean all peace
ful merchant ships. Later in formal
conversation the German Ambassador
explained that regular passenger ves
sels were meant. There seemed to be
no disposition, however, to question the
intention of the Berlin government to
grant the fundamental demands of the
United States, and officials were in
clined to wait for the formal com
munication without discussing the
meanln gof terms.
It was pointed out, too, that the
cases at issue between the two gov
ernments concern passenger liners and
that so far no question had arisen as
to a freight vessel carrying Americans
in her crew.

Head of Department Can Refuse to

OREOONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Sept. 1. Little intimations that
have corns from the Navy Department
from time to time have caused advo
cates of a bigger and better Navy to
fear that Secretary Daniels may stop
short of recommending an adequate
increase in the war fleets, and may ad
vise against a large expenditure until
such time as the European war
thoroughly demonstrates the value of
the different types of fighting vessels.
There has been a growing fear of
this sort ever sinoe Secretary Daniels
created the board of invention, headed
by Thomas Edison.
The chief cause for apprehension,
however, grows out of the fact that Mr.
Daniels, before entering the Cabinet,
strongly opposed a big Navy, and after
becoming Secretary of the Navy, showed
plainly that he thought the present
Navy adequate for most needs.
This board of invention, it is pointed
out, can be used to stave off heavy ap
propriations for the Navy.
Enrone Given No Object Lesson.
The European war has not developed
a big naval battle, which would dem
onstrate the actual and relative value
of the different types of warships. The
German submarines have sufficlenly
demonstrated their utility as commerce
destroyers, but they have demonstrated
but little of their value either as offen
sive or defensive weapons.
