The prisoner presented a far different ap
pearance from that which characterized him
when ho wna arrnlgned In How street court
for his preliminary hearing. At that tlmo
ho wore a wrinkled suit of tweeds, his
shoes were unlaced nnd his beard and hair
woro uncombed nnd ragged. When Kir
Roger took his place In court today ho was
faultlessly attired In a frock coat and woro
& fresh white collar nnd a black necktie.
His hair and beard had been trimmed
nnd were carefully combed. Tho prisoner
was calm and composed nnd smiled as he
nodded to friends among the spectntors.
Tho Intense public interest in the trial
nnd tho famous prisoner was shown by tho
hugo crowd which gathered outside the
court seeking admittance. Only ticket hold
ers, however, were permitted to enter the
room. Alterations had been mndo In the
courtroom to accommodate the largo num
ber of persons whoso official connection
with the case made their presence neces
sary. In addition to counsel and wit
nesses and newspaper correspondents, a
special panel of 150 talesmen had been
summoned In the centre of tho dock was
a big array of counsel, their gowns nnd
wigs giving n plcturcsQUo touch to the
Presiding nt tho trial are Baron Read
ing, Lord Chief Justice of England, and
Justices Avory and Horrldge. No sooner
had the judges taken their seats than the
clerk called out:
"The King versus Casement."
Immediately Sir Roger, escorted by two
wardens, entered the prisoner's dock. Soon
after the trial was opened counsel for Case
ment made a technical objection to the In
dictment, asking that It bo dismissed, but
the objection was not entertained.
It had been reported that Casement would
plead guilty, throwing himself on the
mercy of tho court, but tho developments
showed that no such action had been con
templated. The trial of Daniel J. Halley,
the British soldier who accompanied Case
ment from Germany, and who Is nlso ac
cused of treason, will follow that of Sir
Attorney General Smith made an exhaus

MEXICAN FORCES MASS FOR FIGHT
AS PERSHING'S 3000 MEN ADVANCE
Contlmird from Tubo Olio
column in Mexico eastward and northward, concentrating for tho opening of
veal hostilities. All border reports give tho impression that active war opera
tions already have begun.
In addition to sniping and threatened attacks, the Mexicans hnye set fire
to the fields of brush flanking tho Americans, in order to halt menacing moves.
Washington awaits a war call from President Wilson, who will go before
Congress Wednesday and ask for authorization, unless in the meantime General
Carranza backs down completely on the Carrizal attack and releases tho Amer
ican prisoners taken in the battle at that place.
Little hope is expressed that the Mexican chief will reverse himself after
a virtual assumption of responsibility for ordering tho assault.
This view is strengthened by the dismissal of General Ricaut, at Matamoras
because he refused to attack the American troops which crossed the Rio Grande
after the San Benito raid.
However, the President is expected to wait for a reply from Carranza
before asking Congress to authorize tho use of American nrms against Mexico.
Captain Morey, survivor of the battle of Carrizal, in his report to General
Pershing, plncc3 the blame on the Mexicans for opening the attack there,
although he states that Captain Boyd, suspicious, approached the Mexican
General Gomez for a conference, with the American troops drawn up in battle
National Guardsmen to the number og 17,000, some already on the move,
are expected to be headed toward the border today.
Latin-American envoys, in an effort to prevent war, will call on Secretary
Lansing with proposals for mediation.
TREVINO PREPARING TO RESIST

EI. PASO, June 20. General Jacinto B.
Trevlno, Cnrranzn commander nt Chihua
hua, says n dispatch from that town, has
received word that 3001V American troops
with a supply train nnd field guns have
started for n point below Vllln Ahumadn,
and has announced his Intention of resisting
the American ndvnnce. Tho dispatch quotes
Trevlno as snylng: , ,
"We will do what we did nt Carrizal.
We showed them at Cnrrlzal that wo meant
what wo said and they must lenrn thnt
we are not to bo trilled with. I havo or
dered my generals to lire on any body ot
American troops that approach."
The American prisoners captured at Cnr
rlzal and whose release the American Gov
ernment has demanded are In the custody or
The forecast of General Carranza s reply
to tho United States is given In El Paso
Del Norte na follows:
"General Carranza will confine himself
to a discussion of American troops on Mex
ican soil. He will state that It Is Impos
sible for the de facto Government to con
duct warfare ngalnst the band IU h le the
American troops are enmped In Chihuahua.
"If President Wilson sincerely deBlrcs
nenco, ho will order General Pershing's ex
pedition to emit Mexico. General Carranza
will Ignore tho Issues which have been
raised. Including the Issues of veracity. He
will devote himself exclusively to argu
ments ngalnst the presence of American
troops on Mexican soil.
"Mexican Interventionists nnd revolution
aries are rinding opportunity to equip and
send out parties of bandits to finish tho
work begun nt Columbus and Glen
SPOneBaof the highest military authorities
In the Fl Paso district declared today that
war and a speedy American Invasion wore
absolutely suro as a result of tho Presi
dent's latest note.
'This calls for a showdown, he said.
"Each day the Mexicans havo been more
Insolent. Each day they are convincing
themseUes that they can mako a decisive
stand against our troops. They are full
of a sort of confidence. Carranza cannot
retreat from the position ho has been placed
In. Whatever his personal desires. It must
bo remembered that ho Is being pressed
by powerful Moxicans who surround him.
T feel certain that wo will be In Juarez
In less than n week nnd soon nfter that
begin a march toward Chihuahua."
The first militia outfits nro still being
nwnited by the army to tako patrol posi
tions that will enable the rogulara to "go
In." Tho big "four point sevens," tho guns
from which the Juarez garrison suddonly
decided to tako a more advantageous posi
tion, with a largo chain of mountains In
front of them, still nre In position nnd
ready to open fire ncrots El Paso nnd Into
tho Mexican town.
Carranza, It Is believed by observers hero,
would have extreme difficulty In complying
with President Wilson's demands, even it
he were so Inclined. Minister of War
Obregon clearly defined tho de facto Govern
ment's position tho day nfter the Carrizal
battle, when he Btnted that the Moxlcnn
attack was made on his ordorB. In this
he had been preceded by General Trevlno
nt Chihuahua. These statements put tho
de facto Government on record.
To evade them, Cnrranzn would havo
to refute Obregon nnd Trevlno. There can
be small doubt that this would result In
a counter refutation by Obregon nnd
Trevlno. Doth commanders, It Is believed,
would quit Carranza nnd lead their forces
against the American troops at once.
Trevlno, though under Obregon's orders,
Is In command of tho entire Chihuahua
army and directly In the field. Once these
two decldo that there will be war, no orders
of Cnrranzn can stop them.
Juarez Is supposed to be guarded by a
civilian soldiery. There In little difference
between the Mexican civilian and the Mex
ican "regular," once the civilian has a gun
In his hands. The "regular" may have one
moro bolt ot cartridges or a faded pair of
trousers that slightly resembles a uniform,
but that Is all.
General -Francisco Gonzales, In command
of tho Mexican town, has ordered his
private car attached to a train ready to
start flight for the Interior on short notice.

as a result of President Wilson's demand
for a disavowal end the release of American

"Public opinion here is greatly 'Impressed

peace between the United States and Mex

made so far. The feeling In Spain Is that
it Is ot the greatest importance and Urgency
that order be re-established tn Mexico.
"Intervention by the United States, it la
asserted, would not bo regarded unfavorably
by Spain, because early In tha Mexican
revolution Spanish fugitives were effectively
aided by the United States, the Spanish
Government itself being unable to act directly."

at tho Capitol President Wilson's view of
the situation explained to them nt the

that on tho reply of Carranza to President
Wilson's practical ultimatum ot yesterday
hinged tho decision as to "peaco or war."
And they made It clear to Senators nnd
Representatives that tho President "hopes
but docs not expect" an answer that will

HOUSE WORKS ON FUNDS.
An extraordinarily early session of the
House wont to work nt once on tho nrmy
appropriation bill providing funds for tho
Mexico campaign. Tho measure carrying
$157,000,000, as originally Introduced, will
be Increased by from $26,000,000 to $30,
000,000 before it'ls finished, Chalrmnn Hay,
of the Military Committee, said today.
Amendments Increasing appropriations all
along tho lino wore presonted as considera
tion ot tiro bill was continued.
Representative J. Hampton Moore, of
Philadelphia, nnnounced his Intention to
knock out that part of the nrmy appro
priation bill which would give to tho Sec
retary of War authority to use nrmy trans
ports in carrying merchandise for noncon
tiguous territory of the United States to
ports of this country. Mr. Moore said
he would eliminate tho provision by mak
ing n point of order against It.
"We find In the report on the nrmy ap
propriation bill," said Mr. Moore, "that this
provision was put in largely to relieve the
pineapple growers of Porto Rico. We can
not use the army transports to ship our
products abroad. Wo cannot oven use
them for transportation of our malls, so
why should the United States turn them
over for transportation of cropB grown in
our outlying possessions?"
Meantime the House Appropriations Com
mittee heard reports of the various depart
ments ns to necessary deficiency estimates
to cover the expenses of the nrmy militia
and the marine corps up to the time the
army bill becomes effective July 1, An
urgent deficiency bill appropriating upward
of $8,600,000 for this purpose will be
brought Into the House as soon aa the army
bill Is out of the way.

Pushed by tho Mexican crisis, the'Senate
Appropriations Committee recommended
enormous Increases to tho fortifications bl
passed by the House, A total appropria
tion of $9,000,000, double that provided in
the House bill, was recommended for the
purchase, manufacture and test of ammu
