INQUIRY WILL BE MADE Committee to Go to EI Pas-o , to In vestigate Alleged Brutalities. Bailey Says Deliberate Stove Made for Intervention. WASHINGTON. Ail 3. The destitu tion of American refugees from Mex ico now quartered in El Paso resulted in the adoption yesterday by the Senate of a resolution authorizing the War Department to spend $100,000 in trans porting them to such points in the United States as they wish to reach. - The measure was presented by Sen ator Bailey and passed after a brief debate. It will need the approval of the House and the President before the appropriation becomes available. El Paso Auks Conference. Members of the Senate received in the afternoon a request from El Paso newspapers to come to that city Au gust 12 and confer regarding "affairs in Mexico and plan to meet the Im pending crisis." The special investigating committee, headed bv Senator William Alcen Smith, which is to investigate the charges that Americans have been in-t-Jting and sustaining the insurrections in Mexico and Cuba, particularly was appealed to. Senator Smith sent 'orj to El Paso that his committee would visit that city as soon as possible, but it would not be able to take part In a conference there on August 12. Bailer H-ra Deliberate Motive. Senator Bailey said were it not for the proposed Investigation by a special Senate committee, he would tell the Senate not only of brutalities suffered t"y American refugees, but something tt the experience of citizens of Texas t the hands of the United States Army. "There is no doubt in my mind." he lddcd, "that there has been a delib erate, sedate interest on the part of certain persons to eforce intervention jn the part of the United States." Senator Fall, of New Mexico, was idded yesterday to the special Investi gating committee. Madero Blamed for War. Peace in Mexico Is impossible so long as Madero Is In power, according to Juan Didapp. representative here of the revolutionary party In Mexico. In making this frank assertion. Senor Didapp said those opposed to the pres ent government had plenty of money back of them and would continue the fight for years until the United States would be compelled to recognize the rights of the Orozco faction. President Madero. who has failed In his efforts to float a loan of 150. 000,000 or more in Europe or the United States." said Senor Didapp. "fi nally has sent his brother. Gustavo, to Japan, evidently to see if they can ft the money there. Officially Gus :ae has gone to thank the Japanese yovernment for participating In the re cent celebration of the centenary of Mexican independence, but I feel sure there is more behind his long trip." Promises Broken la C harge. Senor Didapp accused. President Ma dero of failure to keep his prom ises, except to a few that benefited nls own family. He raid Madero al ready had spent virtually all the 162. JOO.OOO that was in the national treas ury when the government was turned over to him by Temporary President de la Barra. Not even the $15,000,000 voted for the settlement of claims by foreigners had been used for that pur pose, charged the Orozco representa tive. OROZCO TO STAY AT JVAREZ Rebel Leader Says He Is ot Ready to Evacuate, Despite Federals. JUAREZ. Mex.. Aug. S. General Pas ' cual Orozco said tonight that he was In no hurry to eacuate this city in face of the two advancing federal armies, and that he would remain up to the last moment so that Juarez would not be unprotected. He says he is In communication with General Inez Falazar. who is at Casas Grandes with more than loon rebels, and that all Is quiet In that district. ... Salazar began today to destroy the Mexican Northwestern . P.allway . be tween Casas Grandes and a point near Madera where the federal army under (ieneral P.abago Is mobilizing. This is done to delay a federal train movement north. When the federals under General Sanjines, moving from the west, draw near. Salazar and his forces will re treat back to Juarez, Join Orozco and proceed due south on the Mexican Cen tral Railroad. Tt Is probable that then the rebels will move overland to the Guerrero dis trict, west of the City of Chihuahua and east of Madera. Its topography makes it ideal for guerrilla warfare. Federals Occupy Rebel Town. MEXICO CITY, Aug. General Sanjines reported today to. the Presi dent that he had occupied Baviacora, near Ojitos. after a brief engagement with the rebels. The laconic character of his report caused the President to believe the resistance would be slight. CACHE OF SILK IS FOUND Policeman and Culprit Mix and Roll Down Stairs Three Stories.

KINDERGARTEN HELD SILLY University Professor Assails Meth . ods of Teaching Children. OAKLAND. Aug. 3. In a lecture on The Process of Thinking," Professor Warner Brown, of the department of philosophy of the University of Cali fornia asserted today that the modern kindergarten absolutely is valueless In the primary education of children. "Time that might be well given to the pursuit of knowledge Is dillydal lied away In foolishness," he said. "The chief object of education is to teach the child habits of accurate observa tion, clear discrimination and careful Judgment. Against these habits, the telling of silly stories, weaving and block building seriously .militate. The most pathetic spectacle I ever have seen in misdirected education was that of 100 little school children in a New York kindergarten making - scratches on pieces of paper as letters to Santa Claus."

FUTURE PROSPECTS FINE K. W. Smith, of American Linseed Oil Company, Writes Commer cial Club of Plans to In ' crease Production. Returns from the acreage of . flax planted in the Northwest last Spring will be exceptionally good this year, according to E. H. Smith, of Duluth, Western seed manager for the Amer ican Linseed Oil Company. Mr. Smith' was In the Willamette Valley this week to Inspect the plant ings that have been made under the auspices of the company he represents. The Illness of his daughter made it necessary for him to leave for the East sooner than he had expected, but a letter was received from him at the Commercial Club yesterday . contain ing a report of his observations. Visiting the planting made near Brooks last April, he found It In ex cellent condition. Great Crop Assured. "It has -developed wonderfully," he says, "and will make one of the bent crops I have ever seen. It will be ready in about two weeks for the har vesting, and unless I am greatly dis appointed it will yield an average of from 20 to .10 bushels an acre.. Under the auspices of the American Linseed Oil Company, which has a fac tory in Portland, 100 bushels of seed flax were distributed among the farm ers of the Willamette Valley last Spring in packages of from 10 to 14 pounds. J. A. Mertz, manager of the Portland factory, estimated that It would return- from 12 to 30 bushels -to the acre, but Mr. Smith's report indi cates that the crop will be even heavier than this. About 5000 ' acres of flax . were planted in the Northwest last Spring, 1000 acres . near Chehalis, 3000 near Baker and La Grande, 1500 near Lew Iston. Idaho, and 500 in the Willamette Valley. Of these plantings about 4000 acres were seed flax and the remainder was sown for fiber. Price Will Exceed Estimate. When Mr. Smith first came to Ore gon, In March, to- arouse the interest of the farmers in flax raising, he said that the company he represented would guarantee them at least $1.30 a bushel, or whatever amount above that figure the .price might reach. It now appears that the price at the time of harvesting will be nearer $2 a bushel than $1.30. The fiber from the fklax will be handled either at the Chehalis mill or will be shipped East to the mills 1n Duluth, while the seed will be sent to Portland to be handled by the linseed factory here. The returns in Beed will probably be heavier this year than the returns . from the fiber, as the ma jority of the flax sown was of a qual ity that ran largely to seed. The factory - in Portland has been Importing from the Eastern states largo quantities of seed each year, and the flax Industry of the Pacific Coast will have to be developed to propor tions considerably greaterthan at the present time to meet the demands of this local concern. . The purpose of the company Is to attend first to the seed consumption on the Pacific Coast and later to Install linen factories wnen the flax fiber production has become sufficiently large to assure a good sup ply of raw material. Linen Factory May Come Here. The Portland Commercial Club will collect samples from all of the flax plantings that have been put in in Oregon and these will be sent to the company which Mr. Smith represents in the East. "Also samples will be sent to . George H. Campbell, of Toronto, president of the Canadian Flax Com pany, who was in Portland last Spring making preliminary. Investigations with a view to establishing a linen factory in the Northwest. Mr. Smith has informed the Commer cial Club that the American Linseed Oil Company intends to continue its campaign for the development of the flax industry in the Northwest more vigorously than ever next year. WHAT IS BEER, AND WHY? Anderson, of Minnesota, Asks House Committee to Ascertain. WASHINGTON, Aug. -8. "What is beer? And if so. why?" These are two questions Representa tive Anderson, of Minnesota, wants Secretary Wilson to answer. Anderson asked the House committee on agricul ture today for the answers and later introduced an amended resolution call ing upon the Department of Agriculture for them. Anderson's only curiosity Is to know when beer is not beer. His constituents raise barley, which they believe Is the only grain which should go to make up beer, and that other concoctions are a snare. Anderson recently got from the Ag ricultural Department a definition of beer, signed by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley. The definiton was not given the force of law by Secretary" Wilson, Anderson says, and he wants to know why. The Wiley definition of beer as set forth in Anderson's resolution is a "fer mented product made from a mash com posed of barley malt and hops, witn or without a small quantity of unmalt ed cereals not exceeding 30 per cent of the weight of the barley malt used."

Stranger Arrested After Taking Painting to British Embassy. Experts Are Puzzled. PARIS, Aug. 3. Le Journal says this morning that an unidentified man called Thursday at the British em bassy in Paris with a picture which is supposed to be the missing "Mona Lisa,'' the masterpiece of Leonardo Da Vinci, which mysteriously disappeared last August from the Louvre. The man. the paper says, said he had been charged by a person in London to restore the picture to the Louvre and asked the ambassador to Inform the French authorities, saying he would return Friday to the embassy. He de sired to take the picture away with him, but the ambassador refused to permit It to leave the embassy. The Ministry of the Interior was communicated with by the embassy authorities and sent experts to make a statement concerning it. The newspaper says that Friday the man returned to the embassy and was given the picture, but on leaving the building was arrested. According to Le Journal, a member of the British embassy who saw the picture says It was painted on an old wooden panel and absolutely resembled the stolen masterpiece, though It seemed to hln. that the hands of the subject were slightly different from those he had seen In the picture of "Mona Lisa" when it hung In the Louvre.
