flclala that "thero might be delay" In send
ing the reply to Sunday's ultimatum to
this city. Yesterday tho embassy notified
Doctor Calderon. the spokesman of tho
Xatln-Amerlcan diplomats, that tho Ameri
can demand for the release of tho captured
prisoners had been emphatically refused.
Calderon immediately united with his col
leagues In another series of telegrams to
Mexico City, pointing out that these
troopers could not be considered prisoners
of war. Inasmuch as war had not yet been
declared, and urging him to reconsider. No
reply yet has been received from Carrnnza,
and the delay led some of the diplomats
to hope that Carranza yet might reverse
No word regarding the ultimatum reply
has been received from Consul General
Hodgers in Mexico City. Late last night
he sent word that the "Mexican note might
not be ready for several days." This at
first was believed to refer to the answer to
the ultimatum and White House officials
ceclared that tho President would not wait
beyond tomorrow. Today, hpwever. Sec
retary Lansing explained that the reference
undoubtedly was to the note pf June 20,
and did not refer to the demand for the
release of the troopers. The overnight
messages from Rodgers referred entirely
to the getting of the Americans out of
Mexico and threw no light on the Carranza
Congressional leaders who got Into touch
with the White House and State Depart
ment were told1 that there was no change
In theVtiratlon. The President, they were
told, adhered to his intention to bring the
ntire Mexican situation to the attention of
Congress as soon as all of the details are
worked out Even though the prisoners at
Chihuahua City are released, the congress
atonal leaders were told it would not sat
isfy the President unless complete disavowal
of the attack was made and the de facto
government took steps to end Its hostility
to the American policy,
The President had before him today the
report of Captain L. S, Morey, which was
received over night from General Pershing
and Immediately sent to the White House
by Secretary of War Baker. This report
shows that the Americans were ambushed
and slaughtered.
The leaders were told that the President
would let them know when he wanted the
special session Just as "soon as he had com
pleted his record."
Secretary of the Navy Daniels again to
dy asked that orders be Issued for the
use of the Atlantic battle fleet as a block
ading squadron. This work will be taken
over by the 20 cutters of the coast guard
and by the light draught vessels of the
fleet Headquarters will be maintained at
Oalveston and as soon as a war-like move
is ordered, control of the revenue cutters
vrjll pass to the navy and they will take
SP tho stations that already have been
agreed on.
"W can get on the Job at an hour's

itanklln D, Roosevelt today.
In connection with the blockade, it Is
understood, that the plana of the Navy
tor the protection of the Tamplco oil fields

Resolution Adopted at Mass-Meeting
Presented by Committee
WASHINGTON, Juno 28. -A resolution
adopted at a mass-meeting In Now York
last night, urging mediation or arbitration
of the differences between the United States
and Mexico, was presented to President
Wilson by a committee comprising Prof. II.
A. Overstrect, of the College of the City
of New York; Dr. Irving Fisher, of Yale
University, and Mrs. Amos Plnchot.
"We represent educational, labor, social
service and professional interests," said
Docotr Fisher.
Following is the text of tho resolution:
"We, citizens of the United States, In
mass-meeting assembled, profoundly appre
ciative of the patience and understanding
shown by the present Administration In Its
handling of foreign Issues, and deeply re
gretting the strained relations now existing
between the United States and Mexico, ask
that differences between two nations be sub.
mltted to mediation or to arbitration in
accordance with tho spirit of the treaty of
1818 with Mexico, so that It may not be said
that any treaty of the United States is a
'mere scrap of paper."
President Wilson did not Indicate to the
committee what action he would take.
Centlnned from Pate One
mint of Artillery, one regiment of cavnlry
nnd two regiments of Infantry would pass
through Philadelphia late this afternoon and
tonight on their way to the front.
The announcement that only two. Instead
of three. Infantry regiments will start nt
once Is taken to mean that two of the-
thrco Infantry regiments In the 1st Brigade
havo been built up to a peace strength of
C3 men per company, which is required by
the War Department, while tho third Is to
remain nt Mount Gretna until it nasi tieen
recruited to the required strength,
Thero nre only two engineer corps In the
division mobilizing here B Is from Phila
delphia nnd A Is fron Scranton.
The Pennsylvania division has but one
regiment of cavalry and one regiment of
nrtlllery, po It Is nuthenllc to say that both
will gn through Philadelphia.
No Information Is available yet ns to
which or when they leave.
"Many things are holding us back," said
Captain Kemper today J "muster roll is not
"Vaccinations for smallpox nnd Inocula
tion for typhoid havo not been finished.
Not one mnn can leao this camp until I
say so; thnt Is up to me.
"They must come up to all the require
ments of the Army of the East before
they go. When they do, I will report.".
Captain Kemper, officers nt Dlvls'lon
Headquarters, nnd C. D. Morse, represent
ative of the American Railroad Association,
which hns charge of transporting troops
from 127 mobilization camps, held n con
ference this morning, concerning the assign
ment of troopa to the various routes.
The routes of the various troops which
go through Philadelphia arc:
One field hospital, one ambulance nnd two
companies of engineers go over the Colum
bia nnd Lebanon to Lebanon, then over tho
Philadelphia nnd Rending to Philadelphia,
over tho Baltimore and Ohio to St. Louis,
thence over the St. Louis, Iron Mountain
nnd Southern to Dallas and then to El Paso
on tho Texas and Pacific.
One regiment of cavalry, which goes
through Philadelphia, will travel over the
Columbia nnd Lebnnon to Lebanon, then
over the Philadelphia nnd Rending to Phila
delphia, over the Baltimore nnd Ohio to
St. Louis, thence to Kansas City; to Santa
Rosn, to El Pnso.
Two regiments of Infnntry go over the
same route. Including Philadelphia, as fnr
ns St. Louis. Then one goes over tho Illi
nois Central to Memphis, to El Paso.
Tho other regiment will leave St. Louis
on the Chicago, Burlington and Qulncy to
Kansas City nhd over the Santa Fc to El
It was fully expected that the 1st Brlgado
woulcj leave for the border last night. In
fact, orders for thj departure of the Phila
delphia mllttlnmcn wero received from Sec
retary of War Baker yesterday afternoon.
Accompanying the order, however, was a
second order demanding a complete muster
roll nnd identification of the various com
mands. This delayed departure, as even
the finger prints of the men had to be taken,
and then later lnst night. General Price
Issued his appeal for recruits to tako the
places of guardsmon rejected by the army
Mayor Smith was appealed to at-midnight
by Brigadier General Price, commander of
tho 1st Brigade, to spur on recruiting In
Philadelphia. A recruiting office was
opened today In tho headquarters of tho
National Security League, In tho Franklin
National Bank Building, Broad and Chest
nut streets.
Standlnc In his tent nt midnight. General
Price aroused Mayor Smith, In Philadelphia,
with a long-distance telephone message that
told tho city's chief oxocutlvo that Philadel
phia was on the edge of losing the laurels
placed on the brows of its troop3, picked by
the War Department to be Pennsylvania's
first troops to be sent to tho border.
"For pity's sake, stir up our people to
send us some men," shouted the General
Into the balky telephone, while an orderly
held a flickering oil lantern so that he could
see the mouthpiece.
"Our brigade Is short In men, and recruits
from country towns are filling up the other
regiments. We nre below the minimum in
many companies, not all our men have been
examined, and I am afraid the rejections
will make us run short. Wo need 150 men
at once to be sent here.
The voice of the Mayor at the other end
"Our Flag Will Float Over
,Wa6hlngton" Mexicans Say
EL PASO, Junt 28. All through
Mexico has gone a flamboyant call
to arms, which concludes: "No fight

troops vill simply march northward,
brusninr? tho gringocs asitlo until
our glorious tricolor floats from the
dome of the Capitol nt Washington.
"It will be a battle between the
Mexican eagle nnd the American
eagle. And we will ctrlp tho arrows
from the lattcr's claws and uso them
to scratch the stars and stripes from
the gringocs' banners."
of tho 90-mlle wire assured the )st Brigade
commander that every avenuo of approach
to the hearts of the city's patriotism would
be searched In a supremo effort to fill the
gaps caused by rejection of Guardsmen by
the United Statei medical Inspectors gaps
that cannot be filled because of Philadel
phia's slothful response to the call.
At the snma time Major Hohcft Brook
field, of tho 1st Battalion, 3d Regiment,
nnd Captain Benjamin C Tllghman, of
Company F, 3d Regiment, wero speeding
toward Philadelphia In a high-powered au
tomobile to open the recruiting station at
the National Security Leagiio headquarters,
They wore duo to arrive In the city enrly
today. Their hurried departure followed a.
conference with Major General Clement ovor
the phone.
"A city tho slzo of Philadelphia, boast
ing of Its patriotism, cannot send us enough
men to nil our skeleton regiments," de
clared General Price In an arraignment of
the sluggish patriotism. "Why.they should
send us 2500 men here nnd we nre begging
for 66. Who knows how badly they arc
needed In Texas?"
A smalt Percentage nf thn mnn u-a va.
Jccted by the Federal Inspectors for physical
defects, the General explained, but tho
"Inzy response" to tho call for I ecru Its had
loft an nlarmlngly smnll margin riboVo tho
required peace strength of 5 men.
El Paso Is the destination of the 7th
division. El Pnso Is opposite Juarez, Tho
Tcxa3 and Pacific from St. Louis to El
Paso and tho Southern Rnllway from
Washington to St. Louis completes the
route from camp to the border.
Disgust and Indignation arose on every
hand nmong the officers and men of tho
brigade when the news spread from tent
to tent that tho brigade was "unprepared."
The "folk back home" would not hae felt
flattered if they had heard some of the
opinions expressed in mess tent nnd over
camp fire.
Philadelphia lack of patriotism Is to
blame; and only action, action, action of
tho quickest kind can save the day.
Such was tne consensus of opinion of
a majority of officers of tho 1st Brigade.
In a nutshell, more recruits are needed
before the brigade can leave for the South.
Until these are obtained, Philadelphia's
troops, some with tents nnd stores on rail
way sidings ready to depart, are likely
to remain anchored here.
The 3d Regiment alone needs 100 new
men; tho 1st Regiment Is short, no ono
knows how many; tho 2d alone, is ready
to go.
The situation Is critical. Judging fiom
the officers' point of view, nnd Involves the
.honor of the city.
"Phlladclphlans cheered their lungs out
when the troops left tho city for camp,"
they cay with ironic sarcasm, "yet they
havo not enlisted. They havo not come
Tho suspense here In Intense. Tho men
"are packed" and are eager to go, but the
greatest difficulty Is experienced In recruit
ing the regiments to their .required strength
of 65 men In each company. Major General
Clement said that of more than 20 unlta
In camp only ono at a late hour Jast night
had applied for their muster roll All mus
ter rolls of the first brigade must be filled
out before the first brigade can break
True, many recruits have been rejected
on account of failure to pass tho United
States Army medical test, which is severe
almost to the ninth degree.
Only perfect specimens of manhood are
wanted, yet the officers feel that the 1st
Brigade now would be well on Its way to
tha border had Philadelphia done Its (hare.
In view of General Price's recent crtt
Iclsm of the small number of enlistments
In Philadelphia, Its evidence In the "hold
up" of the Philadelphia trodps at Mount
Gretna Is causing wide comment among
ofilcers here.
In speaking of the "situation, ono officer

"The city, Indeed, Is likely to be dlsgrnccd

anxious to go nnd it would seem they have
a good chance of winning out. In fact
there Is no doubt that the first brigade that
can show n full 66 men to each company
that brigade will be the first to go.
"Phlladelnhla Is wnv behind many other
cities In regnrtl to enlistments. Thousands

"I ndmlt, nnd my brother ofilcers agree
with me, that tho army physical examina

turned down. The men nre measured almost
from their hair to tho tips of their toes.
Men hao been thrown out because of Un
derweight and thero are many restrictions
moro severe than the test required by the
State mllltln, With It all, If Phlladclphlans
had dono their share, the honor that was
paid Philadelphia as being tho first In tho
Slate to havo n picked body of men ready
for service would have not to be rescinded."
Every man In Company B, engineers, all
Philadelphia men, passed the physical ex
amination for admittance to Fcdcrnl service.
There nre 80 men In the compnny. It Is
causing favorable comment nbout camn.
Meanwhllo pitiful scenes are witnessed.
Sixteen men wore rejected In one company
The unsuccessful ones In a few cases
were so disappointed thnt they could not
refrain from tears. Tears from n soldier,
or evan a soldlcr-to-hc, or woUd-be, nro
unusual, but their grief was eo real and
worthy, no doubt, thnt oven their most
hardened comrades kept silent. In Com
pnny E, of the "Fighting Third," only cne
out of 60 nppllcnnts nre turned down, accord
ing to Captain W. A. Hnrgeshelnw, who is
In charge of tho first batt-llon of that regi
ment during Major Brookflcld's nbsence.
The scenes nttendlng the physical exam
ination of the final batches of men early
today wero pitiful. Off they marched,
company by company, through the dark
ness to tho rifle ranire where nrmv aureeonf
worked over tho nude bodies at breakneck
speed. The Ounrdsmen strode toward tho
Place of judgment, swinging their lnnterns,
singing, shouting, cheering to their captain,
tho colonel, their sweetheart, their mother;
when they returned tho lanterns wero car
ried despondently. Downcast faces nnd
drooping shoulders hero and thero In tho
stumbling ranks, lit up like spectres by tho
trembling lanterns marked those who hnd
been Judged unfit. There was no Joy In
tho hearts of those crestfallen ones; nnd
their fellows, personally sorrow for them
and with the honor of tho regiment upper
most In their hearts, were stricken almost
dumb through genuine grief. Such grief
crops out In lives such as soldiers lead, or
in tho Hvc3 of cowboys, or of other groups
of mon who live close to tho earth.
All through tho darkness of enrlv morn.
Ing thunderstorms to tho north nnd to tho
Bouth crumbled behind tho mountain slopes,
the glare of yellow lightning throwing the
wooded heights into black relief. Rain fell
at Intcrvnls.

WASHINGTON, June 28. An Immediate
declaration that a state of war exists be
tween the United States and Mexico was
demanded in nn impassioned speech In the
House by "Uncle Joe" Cannon today. The
former Speaker declared:
"Tho status in Mexico should be recog
nized at once." He asserted that the Re
publicans in the House should support leg
islation to clarify the situation.
"The situation calls for, action 'by Con
gress," he said, "and Congress should ait
at once. A state of wnr exists between
this country and Mexico. It has existed
for months. If we had recognized It mouths
ago, we would not now be In the position
we are In."
"Doesn't the gentleman think." Interrupt
ed Representative Eagle, of Texas, "that
the sooner we say so In plain words and
go in there and clean up, the be'tter we will
ba effr
"That Is tho very thing I'm trying to
say," replied "Uncle Joe."
President Wilson's handling of the Mex
ican problem Is a "dilly-dally, wishy
washy, hog-wojlow policy," Cannon de
clared. If he were President, he said, he
would establish a military government in
Mexico City and support It by force until
a Mexican could bo found who could main
tain peace ana oraer,
"God knows I. don't want Mexico,')
shouted Cannon. "I don't think wq need'
It, but we can't 'get anywhere by feeding
Boothlng syrup to bandits. I would go
into Mexico and In a manly, straightfor
ward way tell the Mexicans that we must
have peace and order, I would not leave'
that country until we had written Into its
fundamental law a proWslon that the United
States might Intervene, as It may do In
Cuba, In case orderly government Is not
maintained,' '
"Wouldn't you make Mexico with all Its
wealth pay for the great expenditure we
would undergo in pacifying that country 7"
asked Representative Taggart, of Kansas.
"Well, we can settle that when the time
comes," answered Cannon.
The debate was precipitated by consid
eration of emergency appropriations of
125,000,000 for the army and navy,

Mexican Envoy's Various Complaints
Will Not Be Considered Now
WASHINGTON. June 28. So far as the
various notes addressed to tbe State Depart
ment by Ambassador Designate Arrpdondo
are concerned, dealing with a demand that
the blockade on foodstuffs be lifted; that
Mexicans "illegally" arrested on the border
be released, and that American soldiers be
.punished for alleged maltreatment of Mex
ican civilians, there will be no reply to
them for the present.
As a matter of fact, the relations between
Arredondo and the Stat Department are
decidedly strained, and an Intimation that
his usefulness hero has ended would have
reached Mexico City before now had it not
been for tho recent developments alone mil
itary linen.
