WAR INEVITABLE, SAYS CARRANZA
OFFICIAL, ON REJECTION OF DEMAND
MEXICO CITT, Juno JT. High officials
of ths Mexican Government stated today
that Chief Executive Carranta hnd decided
to reject President Wilson's dsmahd that
the American prisoners enptured In tho bat
Us of Carrlsal be released by the Chlhauhau
"It the United States niakes peace con
tinent upon the freeing: of these prisoners,"
they asserted, "war Is certain."
Drafting of the formal reply to the
United States ultimatum was completed at
ths FOrelcn Ofllto shortly After midnight
Prom an authoritative source It was
learned that the reply Informs tho United
States that the attitude of tho de fncto
Government toward that country has been
Clearly set. forth In nrevloum cnmintinliMi.
It Is understood that First Chief Cnr
ranza Insists that the presonco of American
troops on Mexican soil Is contrary to tho
Wishes of tho Mexican people and Govern
ment, that he reiterates previous demands
for their withdrawal and that ho places
responsibility for hostilities If thoy como
Upon tho American Government.
"War seems Inevitable," said a high of
ficial of tho Foreign Office when asked what
the outlook appeared to be. Foreign Min
ister Agullar remained In his offlco until
lata In the night. Ho has arranged to tako
the field In case of war.
Mexico's position has been set forth In
the following noto sent to other Latin
"The American Government hao ordered
mobilised a large number of additional
troops along the northern frontier of Mexi
co with the apparent Intention of provoking
a conflict with this Government, notwith
standing this Government and our people
do not desire the same.
"Although, tho unjust and unequal con
flict seems Inevitable our pooplo aro deter
mined to defend their sovereignty and abso
lute independence oven at a great sacrifices
of thp blbod of our noble sons and of our
country's great resources
"The Government believes, nnd It Is fully
manifest, that the conduct of the American
Government does not comport with Its pro
testations of friendship to the Spanish
American Republics and that Its unjustl
flnble proceedings toward Mexico will affect
our sister republics, and that It Is seeking to
rupture tho bonds of union In which, through
a community of Idcali of origin nnd of in
terest, we should bo united and In which we
must bo United In order.to obtain sMIdarlty
for tho future."
After sending this message, Foreign Min
ister Agullar transmitted another to the
same countries outlining conditions In Mex
ico ns previously reported arid announcing
"Tho American Government, without po
litical foundation to declnre-war on Mexico,
Is trying to make a conflict Inovltablo
through Incidents that aro bringing such
results Moitco should win or Buccuinb
with dignity, hut before the conflict sho Is
willing to demonRtrnto to othpr countries
of the American Continent tho attitude fol
lowed by the United States In attempting
to oeek n pretext for Intervention"
Tho answer to the original message sent
by Latln-Amerlcnn cduntrtcs offering
friendly modlntlon follows;
"I havo tho honor to Inform you that our
representatives In Washington havo been
Instructed to act In accordance with your
diplomatic representatives there nnd agents
of other sister countries fhit also havo ex
pressed wllllngncsi tomedlate I express to
jour Excellency my profound sympnthv nnd
gratitude for tho rnco solidarity shown to

country and beg to nssuro you that Mexico
Is a lover of peace Hollovlng that the only

HUMAN DYNAMO KNOWS
LORE OF ADVERTISING
Eli PASO, Tor., June 27. War spirit Is
sweeping the border today. From the Gulf
Of Mexico to tho Pnclflo ocean Mexican and
American troops are both alert for the sig
nal to enter the conflict.
The actual situation is shown by an oc
curence near Progresso, 40 miles from
Brownsville, last night. Two armed Mexi
cans, who attempted, to cross the Rid
Grande, wero fired upon by an American
border patrol. One of the Mexicans was
kilted and another wounded.
Along tho Xllo Grande near San Benito,
Mexican soldiers have concentrated for a
Udden dnsh Into American territory. On
the Arizona border, Carranzlsta forces aro
threatening tho towns of Naco, BIsbee and
Nogales. A special train Is carrying Ameri
can troops to the Mexican-Arizona fronti
Tho Mexican troops along tho thinly
guarded Arizona lino far outnumber tho
American soldiers. Thls,may requlro a shift
In the plans that had been mado for an
Invasion of Mexico in case of war. Juarez
will bo occupied, as has been announced
before In these dispatches, but Oeneral
Pershing may havo to send part of his
troops westward to protect Arizona Instead
of rushing them all eastward to the Villa
Ahumada district, where there Is also a
great Concentration of Carranza troops.
Officer? and men cheerfully awaited to
day tho Ultimate word that wouldrlirJng
them Into actual war, Tho big "four-point
Bovens" on Cotton Hill scorned to Bnuggle
a little eagerly Into their positions. There
was a new briskness in all camps.
PLAN MINUTE DETAILS. J
It may be said without revealing a mili
tary secret that tho American 'artillerymen
have reckoned tho exact range of every Im
portant square foot of Juarez territory.
Machine-gun crews were near the Inter
national bridge, ready to sweep tho path
for the advance across that point. The
Carranzlstaa were prepared with their ma
chine guns on the other side, and it seemed
certain that If the thousand soldiers and
civilian guards left In Juarez made any
kind of a stand tho bridge would see soma
harp action. The Juarez guard was
strengthened during the night, when Jose
Ysabel Bobles and Manuel Medlnavelta, old
general of "Pancho" Villa, came into1 town
with 400 men from the south.
Juarez, neatly blocked out like a new sub
division on the range maps of the artillery
men, is not causing any apprehension. The
main consideration of the officers who will
command tho expedition la for tho territory
Just In back of Juarez, where the Car
ranztstas aro said to bo Intrenching nnd
making ready for n stubborn resistance
But It would not bo safe to suggest any
where within hearing distance of ono of
tho camps nbout tho city that tho army
doubts for a second Its ability to shovo the
Carranzlstns back on Villa Ahumada, which
Is looked upon as tho scene of the first
Two American expeditions aro expectod
to arrive In that vicinity nt tho same time.
Indeed, It has been reported that Persh
ing Is already within a day's march of tho
PEHSHING MOVES BASE.
Pershing, In removing his baso from
Namlqulpa to Colonla Dublan, has check
mated any attempt by tho Carranzlstas to
annihilate ono or more of the Boparnte
camps strong along tho fprmer lino of com
munications. Couriers arriving here declared that be
fore tho line Was shortened nnd strength
ened It was full of big gaps, sub-bases be
ing 35 mllos apart. With flvo miles an
hour, the best speed of the motrtrucks on
the desert, a large Carranzlsta force,
swooping down on one of tho American
garrisons, might have Annihilated It before
aid, could .arrive, ,
MEXICANS MORE NUMEROUS
In actual numbers the Carranzlstas have
a superior force. But thoy will be attacked
by as .fine an aggregation of real fighting

Impressed Its Real Value on
LATIN-AMERICANS, IN SUPPORTING
CARRANZA, HINT AT U. S. AGGRESSION
BUENOS AIRES, June 27. A lengthy
telegram, expressing the warm sympathy
of the Latin-American League, was for
warded to'Genoral Carranza today follow
ing a mass-meetlngheld hero lasf night
Several pro'-Mexlcan' speeches were made,
the orators charging the existence of an
expansionist party in the United States with
designs on all South America.
Foreign Minister Muratur has received
a, communication from Foreign Secretary
Agullar, of Mexico, intimating that Presi
dent Wilson's decision to pursue a strong
policy toward Mexico Is only for political
purposes. Agullar asks South, America to
study the situation closely and Judgo It
on Its merits. '
South. American republics continue to ex
change messages with reference to media
tlon proposals. Argentina and Braill aro
most anxious to mediate, but do not favor
unduly urging, the- United States
It was semiofficially hinted that some
diplomats were verging on the overzealous
In moving for mediation. Certain smaller
Governments are also accused of Indiscreet
Interference. Chill',, int-, r,.ii.. ..'.

When nny ono In Columbus, O , wants to
know tho facts about advertising they ask
Harry Hershey. Ho doosn't Bhout his In
formation from the housetops, but manages
to deliver It when the request Is made Mr.
Hershey has the habit of giving tho unadul
terated truth about everything, whether It
hurts or pleases.
These aro two of the reasons, perhaps,
that ho Is president of tho Advertising Club
of the Columbus Chambor of Commerce.
Ho Is quiet nnd retiring In demeanor, and
although slim of stature, a human dynamo
when It comes to energy.
In tho Middle West ho Is regarded as
a barometer on quality and quantity of
newspaper circulation in the United States
Digging nftcr facto mado him so Inciden
tally ho took a prominent part In tho Colum
bus campaign against exaggeration nnd
misrepresentation In advertising
As a result of this fight for truth the ad
vertlslng In Columbus Is remarkably clean.
This campaign was not conducted with a
club The chief weapons vvero common sense
nnd diplomacy Mr Hershey, with other
members of the organization, personally
vlsltod every advertiser and pointed out
whoro statements were not borno out by
facts Then there were somo heart-to heart
talks, and one by ono tho merchants and
business men agreed that tho plain truth
was stronger than extravagant claims. Tho
newspapers co operated heartily and had a
largo sharo In tho victory for clean adver
tising Mr Hershey started In the advertising
business In 1908 nfter spending a few years
as an attornoy. He has one hobby delving
Into the occult. He has a little library of
books on theosophy alone Should ho bo nblo
to grab off a few spare minutes during tho
convention ho will probably be found in
somo book store toing to dig up a book on
this Interesting subject.
"It Is not Inconsistent," ho said today, "to
Investigate the subjects which deal with
tho weird, for wo run across matters In
everyday life In that connection Most of us
havo met tho fellow who tries to put over
something and havo gasped when wp heard
his reason for the rash deed Vet In his
mind ho will have n reason which no one
but himself will understand."
Mr. Hershey Is related to the chocolate
king of our own State and Is a prominent

Advertising Men's Inspirations May Shop or Motor or

All Proud of Their Husbands, But Do Not Talk Shop
Mrs L. Beck, ono of tho Poor Rlch
nrdosses, got up very bright nnd early today
to gather her lieutenants of escort. With
tho rest of tho Mrs Poor Rlchnrds sho will
show the way of plensuro around Philadel
phia to tho hundreds of women who camo
here with their husbands,
While there- has boon no specific com
plaint, becauso tho feminine visitors had a
great time yestorday, thero has developed n
deflnlto feeling that tho mon aro vory poor
husbands indeed this vvcok. They nro ad
vertising men and nothing else. As Mrs.
Park S Florea, a comely person from In
dianapolis and not very much married In
point of time, put It, "ono might ns well
not havo a husband, so far ns attention
Mrs Beck Is going to put tho question
of whnt to do today right up to tho women
If they want to go motoring In Talrmount
Park they will motor In Falrmount Park.
If they want to go shopping In tho big
stores thoy will shop In tho big stores.
If they want to sco such sights as tho
Betsy Ross House, etc , etc , they will see
oxactly those sights
"It's up to them." Mrs Beck Bald
Tho way It probably will work out Is that
they'll motor In Falrmount Park this morn
ing nnd shop this afternoon, leaving the
"sights" Until somo other time. It Isn't
at all certain that they'll fttlck together,
as they did yesterday Mrs Beck has
enough assistants to let tho women break
up Into several parties and guldo thorn
wherever they choose, Individually or col
Tho visiting women aro democratic. Ono
doesn't seo much of tho actual advertising
women, for they nro busy in their several
sessions, teaching nnd learning. But the
wives of tho malo oxperts don't caro much
for tho main sitting
Thoy probably get ndvcrtlslng with tholr
meals nt homo and aro glad to work fun
Into tholr trip, leaving tholr husbands to
3o tho studying.
And how proud they nro of their hus
bands I Thoro never has been n convention
hero whero the women who camo exhibited
as much prldo In tholr respective "lesser"
halves, as do these wives of tho ad mon.
Ono Is constantly remindful of a theatri
cal gathering, only Instead of tho persons
directly concerned bragging about them
selves, they brag about tho men they came
with That's true regardless of tho station
tho husbands hold In tho advertising world.
Tho wife of tho man who holds a minor
position In tho agency finds Just as much to
Bay of his place In tho world of selling ns
does tho wlfo of him who counts his salury
In tho limouslno class.
Talking about Democrats! Tho visitors
stand on no ceremony at nil Thoy want to
know everybody, nnd thoy'll tnlk about any
thing. Tho managers of Introductions havo
mndo their systom so perfect that ono can
read tho Identity of any woman pretty far
off. and that Is nil that's necessary To know
