Mexico Rests Easier As Villa Re tires and Troops Join Rebels Juurei. Chihuahua, Mex., May 10. Francisco Villa's days of banditry and constant menace to all attempts to establish stable government iu and to the relations between this repub lic and the United States re ended, according to. reports reaching here. Leaders of ttje new revolution dis played visible relief at the announce ment that Villa had laid down his arms and turned his men' over to General Ignacio Enriques, revolution ary commander of the Chihuahua district Since the revolution swept out of Sonora with increasing momentum it was reported that Villa would seek to remain neutral and settle down on a plantation, and still later that his proffered services to the revolution had been declined. Agents of the new- regime admitted that if Villa decid ed to oppose it he would constitute the greatest menace to it. The announcement that Villa had laid down his arms and guided his followers into the ranks of the revo lutionists came from General J. G. Escobar, commander of Juarez. Villa also notified the Mexican Central railway. Escobar said, that guards of 8 Die When FastElectric TrainsCrash Portland.

M., March 9, 1918, when seventeen persons were killed and several buildings burned. It was on this occasion that the 130th cavalry gave chase to the ban dit leader and killed 100 of his fol lowers. A few days later General John J. Pershing and 4000 men In parallel columns marched 200 miles Into the Interior in pursuit of the Villa band. . When the constitutionalists on whose efforts Carranza ascended to the presidency were organized in January 1914, Villa with Alvaro UDregon ana Pablo Gonzales, were aids to the "first chief." On October 1 of the same year, however, Villa denounced Carranza as a traitor and December 3 entered the capital, only to renounce his claims to the presi dency and leave Mexico City on the following March 24. .

Leon Jouhaux, mas ter spirit of the French federation of labor, has failed apparently to strengthen the movement for national ization of public utilities by ordering a strike on transportation lines, sub ways and tramways in Paris. At 10 o'clock this forenoon omni buses were going about as usual, but there were only a few cabs to .be seen. Frequent clashes occurred during the forenoon between taxicab drivers and strikers. Tramways were working regularly but did not enter the sub urbs. Auto buses continued to circu late. The strike is complete at Marseilles and St. Etienne and is effective at Lyons. Interest now centers on whether Leon Lousaux decides gas and elec trlcal plant workers shall be called out.

The" state public service commission also was preparing to investigate the wreck in an effort to fix responsibil tiy. - Of the 38 persons who were injured. five were considered today to be in a precarious condition. Among them was Miss Camllle Dosch, society editor of a newpaper here and sister of Arno Dosch-Fyearot, noted war correspond ant. Both of her legs and one were fractured.

Reply of Daniels to Accusation Washington, May 10. Secretary Daniels, before the senate investigating committee today, made his long awaited reply t the criticisms of Rear Admiral Sims on the navy's part in the war. The naval secretary let go a broadside which included charges that Sims lacked vision, that he belittled the work of the Ameri can navy in contrast to the British, coveted British decorations and aspired to become an honorary member of the British admir- any. ne aeeiarea tnai onicers suppwuiis is oiuw ""s' were largely "people with a grievance."

Besides the team, the other members of the losing class also partook of the annual bath in the mill stream. "Yokohama Maid,"- the operetta possession of first hand knowledge,' Secretary Daniels testified, "should be accepted by all open minded men as an absolute refutation of virtually all of Admiral Sims' charges." Terms 81ms Failure. Sims, Secretary Daniels told the committee, did not measure up to ex pectations in various ways, of which he mentioned six, as follows: "He lacked vision to see that a great and new project to bar the submarines from their hunting grounds should be promptly adopted and carried out, no matter what the cost or how radical the departure from what ultra-prudent men regarded as impracticable. "He seemed to accept the views of the British admiralty as superior to anything that would come from Amer ica and urged those vlewi even when the navy department proposed plans that proved more effective. "In public speeches and other ways, he gave a maximum of credit to Brit ish efforts and minimised what his country ws doing. "He coveted British decorations and seemed to place a higher value on honors given abroad than on honors ! that could be conferred by the Amer- ilean government Sought British Honors.

Oregon Timber Salem is in the grip of a gasoline shortage today. - Gasoline was being rationed to mo torists, in restricted quantities never before known in the country. Pleasure cars are limited to two gallons of gasoline at a time. Pleas ure cars with one gallon of gasoline In the tank, may have only one ad ditional gallon, according to the restrictions. Business cars, trucks and tractors will be allowed BO per cent ot tneir easollne carrying capacity. Produc ers and farmers will have the prefer ence in this case. Cars must be prov en to be uned for business purposes before gasoline In this quantity will be sold the owner. Priority Is given to only one motor -that of the dairyman because of the necessity of delivering milk to babies. Cause for the severe shortage of gasoline In this locality at this time is that there Is a five day's supply of Basollne in Portland that mut be ex. tended at least 21 days, when anoth er shipment of gasoline Is due. Because the gasoline shortage is general, motorists are nuked by deal ers to conserve aa much as possible, and to use their cars as little as possi ble. Although the restrictions have been put on in some sections of the city, other dealers were giving gasoline without ban today. The Associated I Oil company, while short Baturnay, this morning received another ship ment of 8300 gallons, and feared no ahortage for the time being, anyhow, it was reported. troops to France was the paramount naval duty until I felt Impelled to ca ble him peremptorily that such was our main mission."

' "There are twelve of these hlgfc ranking officers charged with great responsibility," eaid Secretary Daniels. "You have heard eleven, One is the author of these criticisms. The twelfth. Admiral Gleaves, who was Jn charge of the troop ships that carried our soldiers to France, is commander ia chief of the Asiatic fleet and I do not feel Justified in ordering him from hi distant station to testify. "In considering the criticisms of on of the eleven officers referred to I think It surprising and gratifying thut: the verdict of these officers Is ten t one as to the correctness ot what wm did.

'"was the state that he had been told . nt the navy department "not to let.tho British pull the wool over your eyes We would as soon fight them as tho. Germans." "I must confess that It shocked me," declared the secrutary, for in all my years of association with officers of the navy this was the first time I had ever known one to make public any confidential conversation with a su perior. I did not believe It was possi ble for an officer of our navy to do such a thing. The people could not understand how any patriotic Ameri can who put the good Of his country first could possibly spread broadcast statement which reflected upon . hisj own government and might tend to dlstrub the cordial relations with a friendly power ,and violate the confi dence reposed In him and publish statement which he evidently believed would damage a fellow officer , ami cast doubt upon the navy's whol hearted espousal of the allied cause." Mecretary Daniels assailed the man-, ner in which the Sims lettor was made public, declaring that Admiral Slma read it during the Investigation of ni val awards although It had nothing to. do with the subject under considera tion. "He could not have chosen a more, ostentatious and well planned manner of securing publicity," said Mrt Dun lels. "If, as he said, he hud written It only for nuval officers, nothing; would have been eacier than for him to have told Chairman Hale that he hart written a letter to Secretary Daniels bearing on a totally different subject, for naval uses only."
