Senate Authorizes $100,000
Expenditure for Citizens
Who Flee From Mexico.
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

ises, except to a few that benefited
nls own family. He raid Madero al

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.

Expert Estimates at High.Fig

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.
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.
