Delay Would Be Bad for Business

Correspondence Asking That the Anti-Trust Legislation Be

Contention That Depression Is "Psychological."
Washington, June 15. A sensation
rivaling that which followed President
Wilson's charges of an "insidious lob
by" to defeat the tariff bill was
launched today bv the president hiin
nelf. The chief executive charged that a
combination of business intertsts was
behind an agitation to compel con-
(jress to adjourn without enacting any
legislation in regard to trusts.
Modane, France, June 14. The ser
ious nature of last week 's disorders in
Italy was just beginning to be' learned
here today.
The rising was genuinely revolution
ary in character. Many towns pro
claimed republics. Local republican
committees took charge. The people
were armed and the regular authorities
were ignored, forced to flee and in
some instances killed.
In the larger cities the military and
police were said to be re-establishing
ordor Sunday but in many country vil
lages it was reported the revolutionists
were still in control and that there
would have to be numerous small fights
and probably . much bloodshed before
they were completely suppressed.
The prediction was made that iarge
numbers of those who took part in the
movement would refuse to yield but
would turn bandits and that a serious
period of outlawry would ensue.
Nor, it was asserted by persons famil
iar with the situation, was it likely that
the monarchists triumph at this time
would settle matters permanently. They
said they believed the people were
stirred to a point where there would be
recurrent outbreaks so long as the pres
ent regime continues.
The revolutionists call themselves re
publicans but it was stated that their
program was generally much more
strongly suggestivo of a system of

Business really, ho added, was in a

U. 8. S. California, Mazatlan, Mex.,
June 14 (By wireless to San Diego,
Cnl., Juno 15.) The rebels again made
an attack on this city last night and
were repulsed in the bloodiest battle
of the siege. The federal defenders
were, on the alert and mowed down their
enemy with a ruin of machine gun fire.
The rebel loss is not known, but it is
believed to have been extensive. It
was the second night attack of the con
stitutionalists and their defeat was
more costly than that of last Wednes
day. It is expected that the rebel gun
boat Tainpico, now at Topololmmpo,
will come here to sink the Pesquiera,
now in Mazatlah harbor with com for
the starving populace. If it conies, it
may engage the federal gunboat Guer
rero. The rebel batteries keep a con
stant fire on the grain ship.

Of the two injured, Lance Graham, a

preparations on an important scale are
in progress at Constantinople according

general that the sultan looks for a
clash, beginning within the next few
days, with the Greek forces.
It was understood the Turks quite
appreciated that they cannot cope with
Greece by sea but it was said they
intended to make this a land and not
a naval campaign. It was pionted out
that the Balkan war cost them practi
cally all their possessions on the Ocgean
and Adriatic coasts, so that these will
not have to bo defended and it was be

The Turks were reported determined
to regain much of what they lost in
