"WASHINGTON, May 10. (By the
Associated Press.) .Mexico's latest
revolution, after getting under way
with a remarkable absence of fight
ing, apparently has not been without
the usual tropical season of blood
letting. Kroin behind the veil which ob
scures events of the last few days are
beginning to trickle stories of whole
sale political executions, counter exe
cutions and other accompaniment
which have marked struggles for su
premacy in the Latin-American coun
tries. Carranza. variously reported cap
tured, in flight or in hiding; Candido
Aguilar, his -son-in-law and minister
of foreign affairs, executed with Gen
eral l''rancisco Murguia, commander
of the garrison in Mexico City, after
a wholesale slaughter of political
prisoners, including 15 generals;
forces of the revolution in control of
the capital and most of the metropoli
tan cities, while American warships
and marines continued to move into
strategic positions, were the foremost
features of today's news.
Carrania Capture Indicated.
Communication between the United
States and Mexico City continued in
termittently and uncertainly. Reports
continued of the cutting of telegraph
lines which carry cable dispatches
from Vera Cruz to Mexico City, and
these are supported by border re
ports that the line of Carranza's es
cape is held by the revolutionists.
' From all reports, Tamplco, Vera Cruz,
Monterey and Puebla, as well as Mex
ico City, are held by rebels. Search
of Vera Cruz city failed to find Car
ranza. One report had him under ar
rest in Ksperanza.
The last message received from the
American embassy in Mexico City said
quiet prevailed Saturday morning
after departure of Carranza with "no
"The only untoward incident re
ported," the statement continued,
"was the capture of one of Presi
dent Carranza's trains May 7 at Guad
alupe Hidalgo, about 273 miles north
of Mexico City, an incident in which
there were several casualties."
Embassy Silent on Kate
No mention of the fate of Carranza
was madeby the embassy.

his opponent, has ordered that the

Meanwhile the American govern
ment, while continuing a policy of
watchful waiting, took measures to
afford refuge to Americans. There

U. S. Ships Go Sooth.
The navy department has ordered
the. super-dreadnaught Oklahoma
from New York to Key West for pos
sible duty in Mexican waters. She
will take a full company of marines
before steaming south. Meanwhile
the naval transport Henderson will
load 1200 marines from the navy
yard and proceed to Key West to
await developments. American de
stroyers ha. . arrived at jarapico,
joining the gunboat Sacramento and
the cruiser Dolphin also has reached
that port. Other destroyers have
reached -uxpam and Vera Cruz and
three more will go with the Okla
homa. None of today's fragmentary dis
patches made any mention of armed
resistance by the Carranza forces,
but told an almost uniform sory of
federal garrisons going over to the
rebels without a struggle.
SPEAKER FOR M'ARTHUR
MK. G I LLETT EXPRESSES HOPE
Value of Seniority to District and
Ability of Incumbent Are
Pointed Out in Statement.
OREGON IAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington. May 10. Speaker Fred
erick H. Gillett today expressed th
hope that Representative McArthur
will be renominated by the republi
cans of the third Oregon district on
May 21. He made the following
statement relative to Mr. McArthur's
services in the house:
"I am very sorry to hear that Mr.
McArthur has opposition for his re
nomination to Congress. I know
nothing about his opponent, but if he
is to make good for his district in
the place which Mr. McArthur has
won for himself here, he must be a
man of very extraordinary abilities.
There is no place In the world where
seniority or length of service counts
for more than in the house of repre

tion to the weig" T seniority, he
has won r. wid inlTTjewce by his popu
larity and ability. The ordinary
weakness of men holding elective of
fices is timidity, but Mr. McArthur
has always exhibited that Same cour
age and self-reliance which- led him
to vote against the Adamson bill Just
before the 1916 election because he
thought it was wrong, although his
position was pretty sure to be mis
understood and cost him many votes.
But such conduct won respect and
influence here, ever, from those who
disagreed with him.
"I recently asked Mr. McArthur to
preside over the house during the
consideration of an important bill and
I was pleased to notice that he bore
himself so ably and successfully that
when he retired from the chair and
made his report he was greeted with
loud applause from both sides of the
house. He is an experienced, able, in
fluential member and I sincerely hope
he will be returned."

policy. In the latter connection It
was plainly "old stuff," because it
has been uttered by him several times
before in only slightly different
words. It could readily be seen, as
pointed out, that there was no plaus

Mr. Hamaker wished it.
To believe that such an old and
seasoned politician as Woodrow Wil

to increase respect for the national

Disarmament Is Evaded, Is
MUNITIONS TRADE EYED
State Constabulary and Home
Guard Are Also Regarded as
Violating Versailles Pact.
WASHINGTON, May 10. (By the
Associated Press.) Despite absence
of American representatives on the
inter-allied contrgl commissions to
supervise fulfillment by Germany of
the disarmament clauses of the
treaty, the United States is watching
the situation unofficially.
The American point of view of the
extent of German compliance with
disarmament clauses, which arc to be
discussed at the Spa conference. May
25, is summarized as followe:
"The most noteworthy instance of
non-compliance with the disarmament
provisions attracting attention here
is failure to reduce German military
effectives. , Although pledged to re
duce her regular army to 200,000 by
April 10. 1920. and to 100,000 by July
10, the regular army remains ap
proximately 250,000 according to what
is regarded as a conservative esti
mate. This Is in contrast, however,
with an 800,000 pre-war peace estab
lishment and an array of 5,000,000
at the armistice.
Constabalary Held Violation.
"The state constabulary of 75,000
to 150,000 and approximately 600,000
home guards, are regarded as a vio
lation of the treaty provision for
bidding any reserve or secret armed
forces. The German claim that these
forces are necessary to maintain
order is considered" here as refuted
by the failure of those forces to
cope with recent red uprisings.
"Although in compliance with the
treaty, the German general staff
ostensibly has been abolished, reports
say the nucleus of a general staff
continues to be maintained.
"Of the guns and ammunition Ger
many agreed to destroy by March
10, 1920, it is estimated up to January
5, 1920. about one-quarter had been
disposed of. In a report to the inter
allied military commission of con
trol in Berlin January 5, the German
government announced these stocks
of munitions remaining in Germany:
Munition Claase Held Violated.
"Twelve thousand field pieces. 2500
heavy pieces, 3500 flame throwers,
30,000 machine guns and 454,000 small

munitions by Germany, it.ls reported,

"So fart as is known here, secrets
in the manufacture of gas and other
munitions which Germany agreed to
disclose to the allies before April 10,
have not been divulged.
"Military clauses reported as com
plied with include:
"Adoption of new tables of organi
zation; non-manufacture of muni
tions: non-importation of munitions;
abolition of universal military serv
