WASHINGTON. Sept. 15 All Amerl-
'ean Consuls and American citizens hae
ibten ordered out of the States of
'Chihuahua and Sonora, Mexico, tho.
States controlled by General Villa. Tho
Consuls are ordered to leave by October J.
It Is almost certain that this means
the United States will recognize Car
ranza as in control of most of Mexico.
It Is concluded that thp United States
wants Its citizens to leave that they may
fee gate while the First Chief Is com
pleting his restoration of order.
"Lawle bands are operating In these
'State," It was officially stated, "and
-American lives are not safe. The Ameri
can consuls are ordered out, but may
remain at their own discretion. All
American citizens now in those States
have Been told to come at once to the
United States. General Villa's statement
recently that he was not responsible for
the kidnapping- of an American in his
territory, and that he could not control
the lawless bands, precipitated this after
noon's action, it was stated.
In official circles here the notice to con
suls was regarded as highly significant.
Because it applies1 only to Villa States. It
was declared that this meant ultimate
recognition for Carranza.
'The only representative of the United
States Government to remain in Villa
territory will be Sneclal Acent Carothers.
-iKwVrttli,Vtlla?nlTnseifr It-wae eald that-
the order would not affect hm. The
reensul In Chlhuah.ua, Villa's capital, is
erec;ea to starx ror tne united states
t once. At the Villa agency here thin
afternoon officials would not discuss the
stove of this Government.

HEXAMER AND NORMS
DIFFER ON QUESTION OF
BILLION DOLLAR LOAN
Appeals That Project
An appeal to the American people to
prevent the Anglo-French $1,000,000,000
loan was telegraphed to every corner of
the United States from this city today
by Dr.jCharleu J. Hexamer, president of
The message was a warning againsT
what it terms the "most sinister Intlu
enco In our national life, the Money
Trust," which, Doctor Hexamer declared,
was In a conspiracy against the1 Ameri
can people, It asks that all citizens ap
peal to the President and the Secretary
of State to thwart tho loan and that all
bank depositors protest against their
money being used.
"We are passing through the greatest
crises In tho country's history," said Doc
tor Hexamer, in an exclusive Interview
granted to the Evenino Ledger, "The
times of 1776 are revived. If we go down
now we will never attain the commercial
supremacy which we must attain. W.e
ire just as Isolated as Is England In that
t Is Imperative for us to have access to
the open seas to trade. That Is the only
way we can develop. England stands In
the way England, who has swept our
commerce off the seas, who tells us what
ships we can buy and build. And now
we Americans aro to go down into our
pockets to help our greatest enemy!"
WARNING SENT BROADCAST.
The message, which was wired to every
branch of the alliance. Is headed, "An
Appeal to Every Patriotic American Citi
zen." It reads:
The most sinister influence In our
national life has been the Money Trust.

- B a n k Here Con
George W. Norrls, well-known banker,
former Director of "the Department of
Wharves, Docks and Ferries, director of
the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadel
phia, manager ot the Beneficial Savings
Fundof Philadelphia and a director of.
the Philadelphia Life Insurance Company,
commented this afternoon upon the ap
peal telegraphically sent broadcast over
the United States by -Dr. Charles J. Hex--amer,
president of tha National German
American Alliance, asking depositors in
banks and savings institutions to write
to their several presidents, protesting
against the Anglo-French ll.OOO.OOb.OOO
loan, as welt as askfng all citizens to ap
peal against the loan to the President of
the United States and the Secretary of
State. Mr. Norrls said:
"Doctor Hexamer is probably within
his rights In usklng citizens to appeal
to the President and the Secretary of
State to 'thwart the loan,' but when he
asks banking depositors to 'protest
against their money being used' he is
doing what In point of ethics is exactly
on a par with the efforts occasionally
made by large advertisers to control the
policy of newspapers or the periodical
efforts of a certain class of politicians to
Influence the political action of bank of
ficers by threats of Injury to the busi
ness of their Institutions.
"From the patriotic point of view, Doc
tor Hexamer is endeavoring to prevent
the profitable use ot tho accumulating
surplus capital of this country in develop
ing business with customers who want
to buy our cotton, grain, meats, woolen
goods, shoes and other manufactured
products in large quantities.
"This is on a par with the efforts of
the Austrian Ambassador to cripple our
Industries. We had a remedy against the
Ambassador, but I do not know whether
the !v law affords any remedy against
After making this statement in his of
fice In the Bellevue Court Building, Mr.
Norrls smilingly added: "That is the
plain truth from Truthful James."

"Material Witness" in Cord
Case Asks in Vain for
YOUNG MAN CAN'T TELL
Threo minor facts that shed no light
on the mystery of the murder of Samuel
S. Cord, real estate operator, were
brought out today, at the conference be
tween Olaf Peterson, material witness
In the case, and Charles Luble, Cord's
22-year-old ofllco "boy," The informa
tion drawn.irom Luble Isthat a strange
woman irequeniiy teiepnonea a t.ora,
that tho real estate man often left his
ofllce in the afternoon, and that Mrs.
Gertrude Spraguo, of Somer's Point, put
more money into Cord's ventures than
the Prosecutor heretofore had heard
Tho conference was marked by near
dramatics that promised to develop argu
ment, but stopped short of this. It was
theatrically "staged," the Rogues' Gal
lery of the Camden County Courthouse
being filled with detectives, newspaper
men and hangers-on, who lined the walls
with bated breath when Peterson and
the youth faced each other. In sharp
contrast to all this careful preparation
and expectation, Peterson shuffled into
tho room in undershirt and trousers, a
cigar in his mouth.
Luble, doing his best to appear equally
calm and unconcerned, sat on the edge
of a table. Peterson walked up to him
and held out his hand, remarking:
"My, what a gathering!"
Luble then said he understood Peter
son wanted to ask him some "pointed
"Exactly," said Peterson, and the con
County Detective Doran frequently
broke In 'to question Peterson or 'Luble.
One such , Instance brought the first ap
proach to' a clash between the material
Witness and the ofllce boy.
"What did Peterson say when you tele
phoned to him that Cord was dead?"
asked J3oran. '
'He said he'd be down In the morning,"
"Didn't he express any surprise or
sympathy?" Doran asked.
"No."" said Luble.
