. System of Raids Seen.
Marathon, Texas, May 11; (U. P.)
American authorities are convinced to
day that an organised system of Mexl-
' can raids against United States soil is
being put into execution. Fifty Mexicans-
swooped down upon the town of
! Blocker, near Eagle Pass, looted stores
on two ranches and escaped with a
number of horses, according to advices
received here today. No fatalities were
reported.
Civilians along the border organized
when they learned that two armed M ex
it : n bandit bands had appeared be-
(ween Boqulllas and OJlnaga.
A num-
who have heretofore been friendly are
now distrusted. It Is believed that the
raiders obtain information' from their
countrymen-on the-Amtriein side and
divide the loot with them.
Major Langhorne's Eighth cavalry
squadron encamped in - Mexico - last
night, having crossed the International
bcmiMary near Boqulllas yesterday.
They hiked from Marathon to the borv
der, a distance of miles. ,.The
troopers expected to Immediately push
on to Ataquilla, where the raiders are

"Washington, May 11. (U. P.) It
waa learned today that Minister Koo
told SecretAry LAnslng yesterday that
the Chinese throughout America seri
ously protested Against the additional
restriction on Chinese immigration
proposed in the new immigration bill.
He requested elimination of the pro
posed restrictions and demanded recog
nition of tbe Chinese as the equals of
Americans. He Also wanted elimina
tion of the specific exclusion acts
naming Chinese.
The Chinese contentions are under
stood to have been presented to the
senate committee oh immigration. In
support of their claims, the Chinese
clti that they are citlxens of a repub
lic and should be recognised as the
equals of any other people.
vThey don't insist on this in order to
secure Immigration rights so much as
they do to secure recognition. They
are willing to be excluded if the same
exclusion is applied to All other peo
ple, claiming that no distinctions
should be made Against them.
Their secondary contention is that
they ahould not be specifically men
tioned in exclusion acts any more than
people of other nationalities should be.

Pneumatic Chemist
Has Traveled Some
In Past 300 Years
The word "gas" was Invented
by Jean Baptlste Van Helmont.
Belgian chemist, physiologist
snd physician, who flourished
three centuries ago, at a time
when as yet the hocus poeua
of the alchemists wis but
slowly giving place to science
truly so called. He was tbe
founder of pneumAtlc chemistry
snd was the first to under-
stand that there are gases dls-
tlnct In kind from atmospheric
air. The behavior of carbon 4
dioxide though he didn't call
it that reminded, him of the
Greek "Chaos." which he
changed to "gas." Thus, "gas"
la not derived from the Ger-
men "gelst," meaning "spirit,'" A-
