CARRANZA TO DEMAND
RECOGNITION ON BASIS
OF A. B. C. PROTOCOL
Complete Military and Diplo
matic Triumph of Constitu
tionalists Certain Villa's,
MARCH ON JUAREZ BEGUN
WASHINGTON, Sept. 13. With tho
Vlllu armv in full retreat Into Sonora
and tho advance of at least three Con
stitutionalist armies upon Juarez begun,
Stato Department ofllclals admitted to
day that tho time of the collapse of tho
Convention party In Moxlco was at hand.
Recognition of Carranza'B government as
tho de facto government of tho entire re
public Is now -i matter merely of routlno
discussion, formal pledges of protection
of foreign Interests and ofllclnl pro
nouncement It wns revealed today that General Car
ranza has decided to stand upon tho
terms of tho protocol signed by tho rep
resentatives of thq United States, Argen
tina, Chill and Brazil at Niagara Falls
That protocol declared that tho signa
tory Powors chould rccognl70 a govern
ment to bo established In Mexico as tho
result of tho decision of 'the Mexican peo
ple themselves, and that there should bo
required of this Government by tho out
side Powers only the protection of foreign
lives and property within the republic
nnd tho creation of commissions for the
settlement of claims for damages sus
tained by foreigners in Mexico.
Unless the "First Chief" .shall recede
from this position ho will probably point
out to the Stato Department that it
stands bound by the protocol to recognize
his government under those conditions.
This attitude will probably be assumed in
a letter couched in friendly language,
which will accompany a legal brief and
a statement of evidence of, the actual
military and civil control gained by Car
ranza up to October 1.

Unfortunately, the barrel was not

Anally there waB a crash and Tom waa
partially swallowed In Its Interior, When
he tried to escape, the barrel tilted over

STATE DEPARTMENT TO
ACT FOR PHOTOPLAY
But Only as Medium of Protest
to England Over Barring
of American Film
By the Photoplay Editor
Motion pictures threaten to become the
subject of an exchange of international
notes. And all on account of the war.
Believing that the showing of the
American-made film play, "Hearts In
Exile," might give offense to tho Hus
sion Government, tho British Government
has ordered the film barred from all the
atres In Great Drltaln, with tho result
that for tho first time In the history of
the Department of Stato of tho United
States the Secretary has been asked to
file protest with another rower against
tho action of Its motion-picture censors.
Trlvate dispatches from London to tho
World Film Corporation, the producers
of the picture, state thnt the reason
given for barring tho photodrama Is that
"the showing of the photoplay might give
offense to Great Britain's heroic ally, tho
Imperial Russian Government." Immedi
ately upon receipt of this Information
tho World Film Corporation dispatched to
Robert M. Lansing. Secretary of State nt
Washington, the following telegram-

on the ground that the showing of tho

fact that never before havo plays and
llternturo dealing with Russian questions

speaking stage and on tho screen.

given tho Pnthe news service a fresh

hours after tho accident patrons of 22
moving picture theatres In New York

'tho disaster. The Pathe freres had 15
prints ready before 4 30 p. m. Thrco
camera men reached the scene before 9
o'clock. Within nn hour their negatives
had been received in tho company's Jer
sey City studio, whero they wero devel
oped, projected on a screen and edited.
By 11.30 they were ready to bo printed.
They were placed on the drying drums
at 1 o'clock and two hours lator were on
Uielr wny back to tho studio, where a
squad of messengers was waiting, book
ings already having been mado by phone.

of the disaster in New York yesterday
caused Rotno uneasiness until tho trains
