National Committee Meets
Dec. 14 to Select the
Convention City
By N. C. Clark.
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
New York, , Oct. 29. Republican
forces are lining up for 1916. The na
tional committee will meet in Wash
ington December 14 to select a conven
tion city for next year and to mobilize
the hosts for the presidential year cam
paign, Chairman Hilles of the com
mittee, announced today. He indicated
t lie main lines of the campaign to re
more the republicans to power will be:
An attack on the tariff.
Criticism of the administration's
bundling of Mexico and European for
eign affairs.
Charges that the democrats failed to
I eep their economy and otoer platform
pledges including the single term.
Attacks on the ship purchase bill and
t lior administration measures.
"There is no lack of Interest in the
r:ice," Hilles declared. "It compares
fiivonably with four years ago. In some
states,' with 'favorite sons,' things are
letting lively.
"True, the situation differs from the
List two or three decades. From a
o roui) of nossibilities then, there is now
jio outstanding leader. Whether this,
nltuation will continue until the open-;
trig of the convention or whether there1

These, it is estimated, will reach the

There are prosicts, too, that the in

Such control will niean speeding up

Would Attack Allies' Bear.
Such an addition would prove for
midable, particularly if the junction
with the Teutons were completed.
With the additional forces prepared
for battle, the Turks would be in a
position to attack the allies in the rear
unless the allies stop the advance. This
explains the necessity for the allies to
striko eastward into Turkey ami Rut-
that in many places, the progressives
are returning to the O. O. P. avowedly
ror tno purpose or forcing colonel Roos
evelt 's nomination.
'.'No such reports have reached us.'1
'he Baid. "There is no evideuce to
substantiate them. Illinois, for instance,
where the progressives have returned to
the republican party, will give its dele
gation to Sherman, I believe and has
no intention of turning to Roosevelt.
It is the same elsewhere, where there
are 'favorite sons,'
"Do you think it is possible for Roos
evelt to capture the republican nomina
tion f" I asked.
"That is a possibility I do not care
to discuss," Hilles answered.
The chairman was positive thnt Taft
will not bo a candidate. He declared
Iho former p'resident is enjoying life
i-.nd would not resume the burden of
public office under any circumstances.
Though believing that the ill-feeling
of cotton growers over tho administra
tion's foreign policy may cost the demo
cratic nominee Borne votes, Hilles said:
"It will not cost President Wilson
if he is the next nominee any votes
in the electoral college. The opposi
of the, cotton growers will be felt in
nnothef form. They will help elect
congressmen, opposed to democratic
measures. But, judging from reports,
we will not need southern votes to elect
a republican president."

Decisive Battle Between Car
ranza and Villa Forces
Expected Soon
F.l Taso, Texas, Oct. 29. Villista re
taliation for recognition of Oeneral
Carranza by the United States was held
today to have been responsible for the
execution of Charles Boone, American
cattleman, of KL Paso at Guzman, Chi
huahua, yesterday.
His partner, James Welsh, brought
the story that Boone died nt the hands
of a - firing squad after being. taken
from u Mexican Northwestern train.
Colonel Hernandez, a Villa leader.
Welsh said, searched the train for other
Americans and threatened openly that
he would kill them in retaliation for
Onrrniizn'S recognition.
Welsh, who escaped by hiding on the
locomotive with the American crew, ar-
rivea nerc enriy toitay.
Washington, Oct. Sit. Negotiation
were under way today to protect Amer
icans in Douglas, Ariz., from the threat
ened fire of Mexicans entrenched just
across the border line nt Agua Prieta.
Both the stnte and war departments
tried to induce the Carrunzista troops
near Agnn Prietn to move farther from
the border. Consul Carothers had au
thorization to treat unofficially with
Oeneral Villa to induce him to avoid
firing into Douglas. Meantime, General
Funston, commanding the United tKntes
border troops, sought to re-establish the
neutral zone. American reinforcements
hr.ve arrived there.
Fulton's orders permit him to fire
across the border with artillery if tin
villi:tus attempt to make a flunk at
tack by crossing into American terri
tory. At the same time, danger from
flying bullets is great because the Oar
ran.ista line is directly along tho bord
er, facing the Villistas only a short dis
tance back.
The battle, it is thought cannot be
delayed much longer. Reinforcements
for the Carrnnzistn garrison entrained
tudny at Kngle Pass, Texas, will soon be
on the scene.
The struggle is destined to be dooi
sive, military experts think. The lat
r mounts of Villa's once powerful army
stand ready for u Inst ditch battle, in
an effort to inflict a blow that would
give ilia's revolt a new lease on life.

shoreman in connection with nn incend
iary fire which swept pier li last night
and resulted iu a loss estimated at prac
tically $1,000,000, Investigation today
developed two other theories as to the
origin of the blaze.
One theory is thnt Japanese might
have caused the fire in a revengeful
spirit, becanse-of their hatred of Chiu-
ese members of the crews of Blue Fun
nel liners, which dock at Pier 14.
Another is thnt war feeling of Ger
man sympathizers had been wrought up
over tne tact tuat the dock contained
about $250,000 worth of exiiorts des
tined to Russian ports, nnd that the
Blue Funnel line was reported to have
been carrying on n heavy traffic with
the allies under charter, really, by the
Russian government. Damage result
ing from the fiio which was the third
incendiary attempt on the dock t1
week, is estimated at between 750,00'
and $1,000,000.
Silk Cargo la Sale.
The pier itself, tbtf entiTe second floor
and much of the first floor of which U
in ruins, is said to be damaged to the
extent of about $100,000 according to
William Day, warehouse foreman.
The Blue Funnel liner Ixion had just
finished discharging a $4,000,000 cargo,
a great part of which was silk, which
was loaded direct on board cars nnd
shipped east by fast freight. The rest
of the cargo, however, remained in the
Probably $100,000 worth of pig tin
stored in the east end of the . dock, it
was' thought could be saved with little
loss, and $400,000 worth of rubber may
be only a partial loss.
Other freight destroyed included
17,000 cases of Cliiuese ten, 4,000 bales
of hemp, 7,000 bugs of rice, 2,000 bag
of corn and a large quantity of bam
boo and rattan iu bales, anil manufac

of miscellaneous goods.
Two Othe r Attempt Made.
Two previous attempts to fire the
pier on Tuesday fniled. Last night'f.
fire started shortly after the employe
had quit work fur the day and was dis
covered about 11:45 o'clock. The flumes
were shooting up through the roof and
out of the higher windows. Only des
perate work on the part of tho firemen
prevented the flames from renrhing ad
joining piers.
Wiliuinn, the mini arrested, is said to
hsve made remarks to R. B. Brad
a dock workman before the fire, the
caused the latter to be suspicious. He
repeated the conversation to the po
lice, ,
Bradshnw said he and Willmnn wj re
in a nearby saloon shortly before 0:15
o'clock and that he said to Willmnn
thnt he was going to work at I'ier 14 in
a few minutes.
"Don't be too sure of that," said
Willmnn, according to Ilrudsliaw, and
after the fire started, he is alleged to

By J. W. T. Mason.
(Written for the I'uited Press.)
New York, Oct. 29. The union of
Germnns and Bulgarians In the north
eastern corner of Serbia concerns Great
Britain more than it does Serbia. The
junction was effected, not to threaten
Serbia, but to establish u quick route
for supplying munitions to Germany's
impoverished nllv, Inrkeyt.
these munitions, however, must move
over MO miles of mountain highway in
Serbia and 100 miles of Bulgarian roads
before they reach the Orient railway,
Such a move can only be countered
by a rapid concentration of the allies
either in Bulgarim or Turkey. And the
Germans will be able to equip the idle
