Af ter years of banditry and defiance of both the Mexican and the Uni ted States governments, the fa mous outlaw delivered himself Ifto the power of the federals to day and drowned bis sorrows In a bottle of cognac. The formal surrender ceremo nies will occur later, with pomp, but Villa actually pluced his per son in the hands of bis former en emies today. Ho met General Martinez, federal commander, tin der an old tree on a ranch five miles from Sun Pedro. A halfj dozen military representatives i were present where De la Huerta With Martiuuz, awaited Villu. He gallpped up In his customary dashing style, swung from his horse and waved his band gaily to the group of officers. I There was u general, hundshak-j lug aud then a buttle of cognac . ,was produced.

General White, who was in the neighborhood of the battery ot 155 millimeter guns at the time ot the accident, 1s determined to push the matter through, and is using as precedent for bis demands, the provisions of the v.ar risk insur ance act. During tho war $10,000 was paid to the nearest of kin of men killed or who died in the service, either nt home or abroad. In presenting the claim to the gov ernment General White pointed tout thut the men were at camp tinder a federal order, were firing a government cannon under fed eral supervision and instruction and using ammunition furnished by the government for the pur pose and wero In training for gov ernment service in event of fu ture wars. Those who were killed by the explosion and their nearest rel atives affected by this request are: Corporal Edwin O. 8cott and Corporal Clyde R. Dlndinger, who leave wives residing at Marsh field, and Private Ralph R. Fra ley, whose father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. C. W, Faley, reside at Ashland. Copies of the request were fur nished the Oregon delegation in congress and If payment cannot be made under existing laws, Mr. White said that he would use every posslblo endeavor to have congress appropriate $30,000 to cover tbe case.

Fraley .are tbe only deep-sea vessels own was occupied with duties attended In this state. troops for years. Villa received one of the great est ovations of his career as be rode back to San Pedro. A crowd of 3000 rushed to the plaza when the town learned he was coming, and welcomed him with lusty "Vivas." Forcing his way through the throng and bowing right and left, Villa was nearly overcome with his emotions. He finally was moved to make a very eloquent speech, which was wildly cheered. The main theme of bis speech was that the people ought to forget politics and return to work. He said be had set a good example, Villa was the center of a joyous celebration during the day. He und his men were lionized. It was la semi-holiday. Bunds paraded the plaza, playing the old Villa revolutionary song, ill which Villa is represented as boasting he will net the whiskers of Carranza and make himself a garment out of them. One of the most drumutic epi sodes of the day was the meeting between' Villa and General Esco bar, one of Carranza's leaders re- my best friend. It was a crime to kill him." As he spoke he fixed his eyes on Escobar and glared. Escobar kept bis band on his gun. The atmosphere w very tense, for a moment. Nobody spoke. Then Unit upon preparing the Ashland gun, which had filed a few niin- I utes before, tor further firing. His back .was to the gun which explode!!. A piece of shell struck!

The defective fuse in this instance detonated before 111 projectile was halt way out of the barrel setting ot the heavy T. N. T. charge in the shell and blowing the big gun to pieces. Large chunks of the gun were found several hundred yards away. One regulnr army man who was sitting in a Dodge car 300 yards behind the guns with heavy timber between "bin and the gun, was slightly wounded by a piece which took off the cur door. On the other hand, the man who pull ed the lanyard on the gun und Was the nearest mar. to It, was only slightly stunned by the concussion and several who were .standing within 10 yards of the gun were untouched. Captain Briggs, when interview ed, this morning, stated that he had received no official notice re garding the steps which were be ing taken by Adjutant-General White on behulf of the kin of the boys who were killed. He states, however, that efforts by the adjutant-general will be backed in every possible way from here. "Personally," Captain Briggs said. "I regard Ralph Fraley to have given his life to his country just aS other boys who died in the service during the wai gave theirs, and believe his parents are entit led to the same compensation that parents of boys killed In France received."
