DRILLS TO BE HELD AT SEA
.Proposal Emphasizes I'ear Tliat
Diaz Party Will Resume Control
or That Vnite'd Stales Will
Make Threat Good.
EL PASO. Tex.. June 12. General
Villa has replied to President Wilson's
not to the leaders in Mexico. He in
vites a "union of all Mexicans'" to as
sure triumph of revolutionary princi
ples, especially the agrarian problem
and the education of the poor.
At the same time General Villa has
eent a note to General Carranza. asking
him to airree to a conference of leaders
In Mexico to "unite and reorganize."
The note says propositions are being
placed before Emiliano Zapata and
Itoque Gonzales Garza.
General Villa in his invitation for a
conference points out two reasons for
his action. First, that unless the con
stitutionalists reorganize the govern
ment the Cientificos (Diaz party will
again get control under the guise of
another name, and, second, unless con
ditions in Mexico are improved the
United States will intervene.
Villa Replies In Own amc.
The Villa reply to President Wilson
Is friendly in its terms. It explains
that General Villa makes the reply in
his own name, believing he can affirm
it "In the name of all factions whose
pontical tendencies are represented by
the conventionalist government and
eupported ' by the armies" under his
General Villa said he is impelled to
reply to President Wilson's declaration
of policy regarding Mexico because
of Mr. Wilson's high spirit of justice
and the "consideration and respect in
which he is held both inside and out
side his own country, especially by
the middle class and the poorer people
of Mexico, a consideration and respect
which I also hold for him."
Villa then reviews the assassination
of President Madero and Vice-President
Suarez. and the efforts of the
constitutionalists to overthrow the
regime of Victoriano Huerta. He refers
to the "moral aid given by the people
of the United States" in these circum
stances, for which he expresses the
gratitude of the Mexican people.
"I am pleased to know," says the
Villa note further, "that President Wil
son recognizes that the American peo
ple and the American Government have
no right to take any part in the set
tlement of our internal affairs."
Division Declared "Dlnicraccful."
Villa characterizes as "disgraceful"
the division among constitutionalist
leaders after the triumph against Vic
toriano Huerta, which he attributes in
part to "personal ambition of some
persons," but declares that certain
principles were Involved, "for which
v. e are still fighting." .
The Villa note charges that "false
idoas, for mercenary purposes, diffused
by those who sought to retain power
indefinitely without laws, reduced us
to the most outrageous anarchy in the
capital: that it was the lack of a sense
of responsibility by Senor Carranza
that brought ius to strained relations
with countries friendly to us."
The note reviews the request of the
chiefs of the division of the north and
different army corps, backed by a
great portion of the civil population,
that the first chief of the constitution
alists act as president ad interim; open
courts and call a general election to
organize constitutional civil govern
ment. It declares that, instead, a mili
tary convention was convoked, and re
views the Aguas Calientes convention
and subsequent events.
"We believed this system of gov
ernment would ruin our country," says
the note, "and insisted that any im
portant reforms should be made by a"
congress elected by the people.
Carrama'a Authority Disputed.
Villa says he denied the authority
of Carranza because that chief pre
vented the fulfillment of the revolu
tionary programme, "the restoration
of our supreme law." He admits there
Is no authority recognized in every
part of Mexico, but attributes that fact
to "the result of civil war such as
might occur in any nation." Villa as
serts foreigners are protected in terri
tory under his control, quoting from
the report of Duval West to attest this
Villa maintains that in the midst of
an active military campaign his civil
government has developed instruction
of the poor, reorganized courts of jus
tice, reformed mining laws, enacted
laws for the uinting of money, drafted
a measure for agrarian laws and laws
for the exploitation of natural re
sources and restored railroad service.
While war has brought suffering to
the people. Villa says conditions in his
terr.tory have been exaggerated, and
denies that famine confronts the na
tion. or that outside aid is necessary
to prevent starvation.
The note points out that ilia, when
he assumed civil authority in the north.
proposed to receive in a brotherly man
tier all who had gone astray by error
and later authorized the return to his
territory of all Mexicans, "excepting
alone the authors of the revolts of
Felix Diaz and of the crimes of Feb
Penonal Ambition Disclaimed.
"It is not then the commendable
policy of President Wilson that sug
gests to us for the first time the de
sirability of unifying ourselves," he
adds. "Neither is it our belief that our
willingness to bend ourselves to for
cign influence would Knd strength to
our cause by gaining the sympathy of
a more powerful nation. "
"The conventionalirts have made no
fighl to further their own ambitions or
power, nei'her do we desire to obtain it
by any means save by the free votes of
the Mexican people. But as the Car
ranza faction, prior to the suggestion
of a foreign powe:. Lad irdicated a
desire to appeal to the electorate of
the country for a restoration of the
legal regime of our constitution, we
are disposed to invite a new union of
all Mexicans and. as thus united, to
work together to insure the triumph
of revolutionary principles, especially
the agrarian problem and the exten
sion of instruction among the poorer

War Department Approves of Plans
Outlined for Visit to Port An
geles, Also Target Prac-
tice to Be Done.
Notice of the approval by the War
Department of the plans for the annual
cruise of the Oregon Naval Militia to
San Francisco in July and August was
received yesterday at Naval Militia
headquarters. The plans are virtually
the same as recently decided upon by
the Naval Militia officers here, calling
for a trip to San Francisco and to Port
Angeles on board the cruiser Albany,
now at the Bremerton Navy-yard.
The Albany will reach Portland July
25 and will remain here over night. The
Naval Militia will go aboard at 8 o'clock
the next morning and the ship will sail
for Astoria. The ship's regular crew
will have charge of the trip down the
river as far as Astoria. Here the Naval
Militia men will take full charge.
The night of July 26 will be passed
in the harbor of Astoria, where various
drills will be held. On the morning of
July 27 the cruiser will go to sea, and
after maneuvering for four days will
end up at San Francisco for a stay of
four days. Part of this time will be
devoted to drilling. At least two full
days will be given the .men to visit the
August 2 the ship will go to sea again,
remaining out until August 5, when she
will reach Port Angeles, Wash. August
8 will be passed in target practice out
from Port Angeles. The ship will re
turn to Portland on August 9.
All along the route interesting drills
will be held and the men will be taught
the varied arts of operating a battle
ship. The target practice is expected
to be particularly interesting because
of the fact that all the big guns will be
brought into action.
The militia is planning on making 'a
big showing at San Francisco. The
militia band will lead all processions.
A number of interesting athletic con
tests are being arranged for the trip
in addition to the regular routine of
maneuvers and drills.
