Seattle. Wash., June 2:1. Major Gen
eral J. i'raakliii Bell, commander of
the western department of the 1'nited
States army conferred with Adjutant
General Maurice Thompson and Gover
nor Lister here today, and told them
to prepare to rush orders to the Mex
ican border. He said all state militia
would be sent south as soon as equip
ment could be issuel at AmeuYyin Lake.
Xo state troops will be ready to move
for the border before Tuesday.
The orders to the department com
manders, now already iu the hands of
the state militia heads, direct them not
to delay departure because of the
shortage of field transportation
which includes horses, mules, wagons
and auto trucks.
At the war department no informa
tion can be had as lo the exact readi
ness of the militia organization of any
state and for this reason it cannot be
told hoiv soon the first of the guards
men will be on their way to the
It is probable that in many stales it
will be a matter of sev eral days before
the officers in charge consider their
forces "reasonably ready," since this
order is interpreted as meaning the
men should be somewhat seasoned in
camp before being sent south.
Oregon May Go First.
General Bell declined to sav which of
the Pacific coast state troops woud
move first, but indicated that the Ore

"Xo troops have been ordered to the

it was stated.

San Antonio, Texas, June 2.'t. Orders
for the distribution of the state militia
along the border will probably not be
made public until the various units
have arrived at their stations, General
Funstoa indicated today. Their exact
locations will nut be divulged even then,
as Vuuston does not wish the Mexican
military officials to know just what
his arrangements will be.

Reports circulating in Salem that two
prominent men of the company had been

thus far inflicted on any Snlein guards
man comes through the wounding of one

Vrom the same source it is renorted
that the Third infantry will not go to
