PLATTSBURG, N. Y.. Aug. 27. Like a

hour and a half later tho tent city, which
for mearly three weeks has housed moro
than a thousand men, was as silent and
lonely as a deserted village, with not a
sign of life In evldenco except an occa
sional sentry pacing silently back and
forth on his beat.
Tho hike will last moro than a week.
It will embrace a distanco of nearly a
hundred miles and will bo tho climax of
tho three weeks' military training that

of men from every walk of life who have

week from Sunday, in connection with
3000 troops of various kinds whoso life

under conditions as nearly llko those In
actual warfare as It is possible to pro
duce in time of peace.
Tho single exception Is that they are
not to be'requlred to cook their own food.
The recrultB are not experienced enough
as yet to do that without a wasto of
timo that would be a considerable handi
cap. But In every other respect the stu

E.ven the orders for their movements

Mrn. F. Hoe Scaring, wife of tho Phila
delphia contractor, who disappeared nt
Atlantic City on tho evening of August
17, today filed a potltlon with Register
of Wills Sbechan for admission of her
husband's will to probate. Tho Atlantic
City beach guards havo not recovered Mr.
Searing's body, nor has his disappearance
been explained. His clothing was found
In his rooms.
Although tho law docs not require that
any specified time elapse between tho
supposed death of a person and the ad
mission of the will to probate. It is cus
tomary to require almost concluslvo proof
of tho demise. The pollco of Atlantic
City repeatedly havo expressed the opin
ion that Mr. Searing did not drown, but
have been unable to substantiate their
belief. They recaTl the slmlllar disap
pearance of David Callahan, of Spring

house some five weeks ago, but whose
body was never recovered, and who is
believed to be allvo.

clothes will be carried out by MrB. Sear
ing as executrix of the estate.
Sidney B. Smith, nn attorney In the
Land Title Building, who represents Mrs.
Searing, said that there was no doubt In
hln mind that Mr. Scaring was dead.
"The day was very hot," he said, "and
the water was exceedingly cold at the
time Mr. Searing wns seen In bathing. I

It was decided to go in bathing as soon
as they arrived at the resort. While Mr.

his friend went to a bathhouse to obtain
a suit. The former never was seen again.
Mrs. Searing, who Is still in Atlantic
City, does not believe that her husband
is alive. She characterized the sugges
tion as "preposterous," and added:
"Mr. Searing was In his bathing suit
and without money. Men do not disap

no reason for disappearing. Ills business

MURDER OF AMERICAN
BY MEXICAN BANDITS
Band of Outlaws Attacks Mine
Where Work Had Been Re
sumed on Assurance
NEBRASKAN THE VICTIM
Two of His Military Escort Killed
and Others Wounded
Tho murder of nn American by Mexican j
bandits nnd the robbery of one of the
largest gold and silver mines In that
country Is described In a letter received
by Jacob Itothschlld, an Investment
broker with offices In the Drexcl Building.
Mr. Itothschlld Is the local representa
tive of Mnkcevcr Brothers, of New York,
owners of tho El Favor mine, tho stock
of which Is held to a large extent by
Philadelphians. The communication was
sent by James H. Nelson, an employe of
Mnkeover Brothers, on May 31. Bocauo
of tho Inadequacy of the Mexican mall
service, caused by the turbulent political
conditions, tho letter was Just received.
It tells how Glenn Parmenter, native
of Nebraska, was held up by n band of
outlaws, robbed of gold valued nt J6000.
his body horribly mutilated and his gold
teeth knocked out of his mouth, that they
could bo converted Into cash. Two Mex
ican Boldlcrs, members of Pnrmentcr's
military escort, wore nlso killed, nnd two
others were Injured. Parmenter begged
tho bandits to toko tho gold nnd sparo
his life, but tho robbers wero unrelenting.
MUTILATED BY MUItDEItEnS.
When tho body was returned to tho
mine and examined an explosive bullet
was found In his eye, nn ordinary bullet
In his body and six explosive missiles In
his arm. News of the murder was com.
munlcated to Major Itlvcros, and a hun
dred soldiers aro now searching for the
assassins. The unfortunate man was only
30 years old and wns regarded by his em
ployers as a worker of unusual executive
ability. Ho was engaged on April 4, 1915,
as superintendent of tho mill attached to
tho El Favor mine.
On March 1 General Villa Issued orders,
according to the letter, that all mines not
In operation within 90 days should bo
confiscated. In accordance with that
command, Mr. Nelson mado all necessary
arrangements for the beginning of work,
tho El Favor mlno having been ldlo for
mnny months because of the risks to
which American property wns sub
jected. WORK RESUMED BY MINERS.
Mr. Parmenter and Mr. Nelson de-
i parted from Guadalajara for El Favor on
April 4. arriving two days later. Tney
wero assured thut a resumption of opera
tions would not be nttended by any
danger. Various supplies wero needed
bo that Mr, Nelson was compelled to re
turn for awhllo to Guadalajara. Mean
while, tho work was conducted without
Interruption, the miners declaring that
thoy had been starving and would be
glad to icturn to steady Jobs.
Word was soon passed about, however,
that "Polio." described In tho letter ns
nn "assassin" and a "robber," was In
tho vicinity. "Polio," whose real name
was Castellon, was wanted as a de
serter from tho army and a report of
his whereabouts was dispatched to Hos
totlpaqulllo. Troops wero scarce then,
so that tho Mexican were unwilling to
send soldiers to arrest him either as a
menace to the Americans or as a deserter
from tho Mexican army.
BANDITS ATTACK CAMP.
A night watch was at first instituted,
but when it wns reported that "Polio"
had left the district all employes wero
permitted to retire at midnight. Tho re
laxation of vigilance. Was" costly,., haw
ever, for at 2 o'clock on the morning
of May 17 several bandits mado their
appearance In the camp, armed with
Mauser carbines, knives and pistols.
Tho Americans were disarmed While tho
Mexicans departed, taking $312 with them.
A far larger amount, concealed In a safe,
was not discovered by tho robbers.
Mr. Nelson was held up again several
days later, and when his llfo was threat
ened ho surrendered J7000 In bullion, which
wns carried away on the backs of mules.
Fivo of tho 17 thieves wero later appre
hended, nnd after a brief encounter be
tween them and the soldiers tho bandits
escaped, with one of their number wound
ed. They lost a part of the booty during
tho fight which occurred near the mining
KILLEp FROM AMBUSH.
Subsequently, Mr. Parmenter was held
up at Jocotlllo, and It was hero that he
met his death. He was accompanied by
ten soldiers and two mule drivers. When
tho first word of the murder had been
received 25 men wero sent out to search
for Parmenter. They returned to tho
camp on May 2fi barnlng the body of
the murdered American.
Their hasty investigation led them to
believe that Parmenter had been am
bushed. Although a complete story of
the massacre will never be obtained, it
is thought that when tho tlrst volley
was fired all of the native soldiers de
serted tho American, excepting the two
who wero killed and the others who wore
A report of the affair was dispatched
to Will B. Davis, American Vice Consul
at Guadalajara. The concluding para
"Such a dastardly and brutal crime has
cast quite a gloom over the district, and
as Mr, Parmonter has been tho third vic
tim to bandits In the El Favor district
since the month of April last year the
writer trusts that you will use every ef
fort to have this case brought before your
Government as soon as possible that they
may take tho necessary steps."

SOUTH RESENTS ALLIES,
BANNING OF COTTON
Retaliatory Action When Con
gress Convenes, Says Next
WASHINGTON, Aug. 27. That retalia
tory legislation will bo attempted when
Congress convenes, should tho Allies not
rovoko their decree making cotton con
traband, is tho opinion of Representative
Claudo Kitchln, who Is to be Democratic
floor leader of tho next House.
The North Carolina Representative
mado It clear hero today that tho resent
ment against tho Allies Is growing
throughout tho South, despite tho ex
traordinary efforts being made by tho
Administration to finance this year's cot
ton crop. If tho situation has not been
improved, by diplomatic measures, when
Congress assembles, ho said, the senti
ment for retaliatory measures, such as
arms embargo, will be very hard to over
come. The cotton contraband decree, he de
clared, was a direct violation of tho prom
ises mado by Kngland at tho outset of
tho war. Kitchln said that the cotton
situation very likely will precipitate a
lively debate, at least, so Boon as tho
lawmakers get down to business. He,
however, does not bellovo that there
will be an extra session.
The State Department still declines to
discuss tho new British noto or to say
whether It is near completion.
