Carranzs Representative Thinks Crisis
Is Not Yet Over -Anxiety Felt
for Many Small Garrisons.
El Paso, Tex. Villa is moving
northward from Chihuahua City,' ac
cording to a dispatch from General
Trevino, received Tuesday by General
Gonzales, at Juarez, who was ordered
to concentrate his forces at Juarez.
' A private message coming over the
same route adds that not only is Villa
proceeding north, but he is in control
of Chihuahua City, which General Tre
vino is said to have abandoned, pro
ceeding southward. General Trevino,
according to the private report, said
that, after effecting a junction with
General Murguia, he would return and
The message from General Trevino
was sent in code from Sauz by way of
Ojinaga, opposite the Texas town of
Presidio, where it was relayed. It
said, according to Carranza officials,
that Villa was moving north, and or
dered the detached garrison along this
section of the frontier and on the Mexican-Northwestern
line to concentrate
in Juarez. -
The message, they added, spoke of
this as the fifth day of Villa's attacks.
The countenances of the civil and
military men in Juarez showed clearly
the seriousness of the news.
"No, I think not," was the answer
given by a Carranza representative of
high rank, when asked whether the
Villa crisis was yet over.
It is understood that there are about
600 men, mostly infantry, in or near
Telegraphic communication was still
open with Sauz, about 26 miles above
Chihuahua the military men said.
They professed consdierable anxiety
about the Carranza garrison there.
General Murguia with his large
forces had been expected daily, to come
to the rescue of the besieged city.
Safe Conduct for Austrian Ambas
sador tq U. S. Refused by British
Washintgon, D. C Another contro
versy between the American govern
ment and the entente allies is in pros
pect as a result of the refusal of the
British government to grant safe con
duct to Count Tarnowski, the newly
appointed Austro-Hungarian ambassa
dor to the United States.
In the absence of officials advices on
the subject officials of the State de
partment were not in a position Tues
day to discuss it formally or to fore
cast the course the government is like
ly to pursue. It was made evident,
however, that unfavorable action of
the British foreign office on the notice
of the intention of the new ambassador
to cross the Atlantic to his post came
as an unpleasant surprise.
It had not been doubted here that
Great Britain would be the last power
to deny the privileged character of a
diplomatic officer on such a voyage.
Aside from the belief that England
would not deBire to arouse adverse
feeling In the United States by inter
ference with the ancient and generally
unquestioned right of a neutral gov
ernment to receive an ambassador or
minister, officials had counted on Great
Britain s record in the Mason and Sh-

reported in Tuesday's cable dispatches.

A lively incident preceded the sinking
of the vessel. The German command

Bhould be lowered, and German sailors
prepared to put them into effect. They
met with stubborn resistance on the
part of the American Captain Duffy
and his crew, who refused to haul
down the colors, saying that if the
ship had to be sunk it would be with
the flag flying.
Captain Duffy maintained his
ground, and so rapid were the prepara

had been taken aboard the submarine a

New York Women Start Boycott
on Eggs Appeal to Wilson
New York New York City's fight
to reduce the high cost of living began
in earnest Wednesday, with a boycott
on eggs by thousands of housewives.
This was followed by a direct appeal
by the National Housewives League to
President Wilson for the regulation of
the country's food supply, and meet
ings of Federal, state and city officials
and investigating committees, aa well
as various civic organizations, at
which resolutions were passed looking
to a speedy readjustment of conditions.
Virtually every branch of the muni
cipal government was at work in an
endeavor to fin'1 s solution to the food
problem. A statement issued by Is

of coroners, declared that ' 'the present

to be held until Belgium is free. Emile
Verhaeren was born in May, 1866, at

Baker, Or. A slight lifting in the

owners were jubilant.
The Baker White Pine plant, which
shut down one day because of the
shortage, was able to resume with the
full crew of men, and the three other
mills, which had planned to stop unless
there was relief, were able to continue.
The railroad was unable to promise a

quite, unprecedented so early in the

laid, at 60 and 66 cents a dozen, Thurs
day's price, are somewhat of a luxury,
and cold storage ones, st 60 cents a

8eed Corn la Important
Washington, D. C The need of
sources from which suitable seed corn
can be obtained in the semi-arid and

country, subject to extreme sea

Nothing else would so cheaply turn
many corn failures Into successes as
the establishment of good sources of
seed corn. , While a knowledee of
corn breeding would be helpful, any
farmer can do much toward supplying
himself . and his neighborhood with
better seed corn by starting with a
well-tested variety and selecting the
best ears from the best stalks each
year. By so doing, natural selection
assists in weeding out the unfit
Where corn is grown for grain there
is no better locality from which to
obtain seed than that In which it is
to be planted. Where grown for the
silo or for large stalk growth, seed
may be obtained to advantage from a
more southern locality or a lower al
titude. Farmers' bulletin 416 of the United
States Department of Agriculture,
which may be obtained free upon ap
plication, treats of the selection and
care of seed corn.
A point of, greatest Importance is
that of holding over from good crops
sufficient seed corn for two or three
years' plantings. . This is essential In
the origination and perpetuation of
high-yielding varieties adapted to lo
cal conditions. Seed corn that ma
tures well and dries out promptly
without injury will keep Its good ger

or five years. Seed corn of the best
quality can be always available by
protecting a sufficient quantity from
moisture and insects and other animals.

- Investigation ot rental values from
time to time, says Mr. Cecil, has re
