But the salient feature of today's

May. The market closed arotil the
highest prices for railway shares, but
industrial stocks hung back. From some

actual earning power is conjectural to
railways, whose status is perfectly well

III CAMPAIGN OF
James McGill Confesses and
Promises To Tell All He
Watsonville, Cnl., Sept. 25. New sen
sational disclosures involving some higher-ups
of the I. W. W. in California and
Oregon and an exposure of the alleged
plans of the organization to terrorize,
central California were promised today
by James McGill, self confessed incendi
ary, before officers were to take him fo
McGill confided to a Stockton under
sheriff that he will tell everything he
knows about the I. W. W. and will clear
the way for the eapture.of his two part
ners, Charles Anderson and Tony Wil
liams. McGill will enter a plea of guilty in
the San Joaquin county superior court
to the charge of having burned a grain
warehouse near Lodi two weeks ago.
Ifis disclosures are expected to affect
leading spirits of the I. W. W. who are
working from the Portland headquar
ters. He stated in his confession that
he has had lit tin to do with the Cali
fornia J. W. W.s, but that Williams and
Anderson arc closely in touch with
them, tie gave the police a good
description of the two incendiaries.

following the arrival of Deputy Sheriff
Thompson, from WatHonville todav noon
lames McGill confessed I. W. W. fire
bug, in custody, he will be closeted with
District Attorney Foltz, Sheriff Riecks
and other officials and closely ques
tioned. Witihin the past six months there
have been no Ibbs than fifteen fires in
and about Stockton, which, the
sheriff's office states, have been at
tributed to phosporous. It is expected
that McGill may be able to shod some
light on the starting of those fires.
Last spring three big haystacks, each
containing 150 tons, were destroyed at
El Pinal, on tho property of George
West and sons. The stacks did not burn
simultaneously. While officers were
watching one of the stacks burn, fire
broke out in a third stack and the of
ficers recovered a. quantity of phos
phorous which had been secreted iu the
hay. The phosphorous is now being
kept in n bucket of water nt the
sheriff's office as evidence. ,' J
About two months ago a big bam on
the Crittenden place near Tracy was
burned, destroying 28 horses, a cow and
an automobile. The next night a big
barn on the Gordon place in thnt vicin-,
ity was also burned. It is notable that
large ranchers were the victims in
nearly all of these fires.

BORDER SITUATION IS

Twenty-Eight Mexicans Were
Killed and Wounded
Brownsville, Texas, Sept. 25. Blame
for the Mexican attack upon American
soldiers at Progresso yesterday was
shifted today upon Csrrnnza's enemies
by the Carranzista consul here. He
declared that these enemies, fearing
that the United States is about to recog
nize Carranza, organized the attack in

Three hundred American soldiers were

These were scuttered at advantngeous

General Nafarette, commander. of the
Carranzista forces at Matamoroa across

Recognition May Not Come.
Washington, Sept. 25. Likelihood of
American recognition of Carranza as
Mexican provisional president lessened
today. A sharp turn of sentiment here
against him was evident. Unless events
are more fnvorulile for hlin, before the
next Pan-American eonference, it Is be
lieved the conferees will hesitate to
recognize him under existing conditions.
Attacks by men alleged to be Cur
ranza soldiers against American troops
in the Brownsville district was a big
factor in the changed attitude townrd
him. The war department has asked
General Funston to establish whether
Carranzistas participated, as is claimed.
