103 PASSENGERS ARE RESCUES
Spanish Liner, With Cargo of Cotton
and Rum, Catchet Fire at Sea and
Sends For Help Appeal Answered.
Wireless telegraphy has again been
the means of having a large number
of lives at sea. Tlie liner Pannonla,
1,200 miles south of Sandy Hook, re
ceived the distress signal from the
Spanish liner Iialmasv on lire ISO
miles away. He arrived on the scene
at daylight and took off 103 passen
gers and stood by to help, later es
corting the burning ship toward Ber
muda. The call "S. O. S." came out of the
placid sky and the operator asked
what was happening aboard the luck
less liner. The response was from
the Spanish liner Iialmas, of tthe
Plnillos line, bound for Cadiz from
gulf ports and Havana with 103 pas
sengers and a large carco of cotton
and rum. She reported that she wa
on fire and needed help.
The moment Captain Robert Cap
per learned of the plight of the Span
lard he headed for her under full
steam. He figured her position to he
about 180 rriles to the south. The
operator of the Balmes kept up his
calls for help, perhaps with the hope
of attracting a steamship somewhat
nearer than the Pannonla, but he was
unsuccessful in this.. Meanwhile, the
Pannonla's-wireless man on duty sent
messages telling of the Cunarder's
progress. The seas were comparative
ly smooth and the Pannonla reeled on
more than fifteen knots.
The Balmes' men were fighting the
Are, which was in the cotton in a
forward hold, and fearing momentarily
that the bla.e would get to the rum
that formed a portion of the cargo
and cause explosions that would end
in the destruction of the ship and all
her passengers and crew.
Captain Capper of the Pannonla
came within Bight of the burning ship
before daylight. The Pannonia sin
nailed the lialmes that she would
stand by till daylight and then take
off the passengers if necessary. When
say came it was seen that the Span
iard was In a srrry plight and Cap
tain Capper bejan launching lifeboats.

land, was accomplished swiftly and
without accident. Then Captain Ruiz
of the Balmes conferred by mega
phone with Captain Capper and an
nounced that he and Ills crew would
stick by the Balmes in the hope of
saving her if the .Pannonla would
would stand by and give help In case
their efforts were futile.
Captain Capper agreed and both
ships proceeded toward Bermuda,
which was about 570. miles west-southwest
of the position where the Cun
ardor fell in with the Balmes. As he
neared Bermuda Captain Capper sent
this message, which was received
at the ofllce of the Cunard line:
"The Sranlsh steamship Balmes,
Pllllrios lino, 103 passengers, a cargo
of cotton and rum, sent the S. O. S.
call on Nov. 13 at 7 p. m. 'Am on fire,
"The Pannonla was then 180 miles
away. She reached the Balmes late
that night and cruised around the
burning ship until daylight, when the
Balmes' passengers were transferred
to the Pannonla. The captain will not
abandon the ship unless he is com
pelled to do so. I have arranged to
accompany htm to Bermuda so as to
render It perfectly safe for him. The
Balmes Is in a dangerous condition.
Average speed about eight knots. All
well. Am now at 10 a. m., New York

Too Friendly to United States
to Suit Dictator
REBELS CELEBRATE AT JUAREZ
City on Border Line Surprised and
Taken by General Villa and Many
Federal Prisoners Are Put to Death.
Manuel Garza Aldape, minister of
the interior in the Mexican cabinet,
at the request of President HuerU,
presented his resignation. The reason
is believed to have been due to the
activity of Senor Aldape in endeavor
ing to bring about compliance by
Huerta with the demands of Washing
ton to relinquish the presidency.
The minister had conferred with
Nelson O'Shaughnessy, the American
charge d'affaires, on the subject of re
opening negotiations with John LInd,
President Wilson's personal repre
restative, looking to a settlement of
the trouble between Mexico and the
Senor Aldape was the last remain
ing cabinet ollicer appointed by agree
ment between President Huerta and
General Felix Diaz at the close of the
ten days' battle in the capital in
Foreign Minister Moheno, who Is
bitterly anti-American and an avowed
enemy of Garza Aldape, is now Gen
eral Huerta's chief adviser and the
remainder of the cabinet are disposed
to support the president's views.
It is not expected that General Hu
erta will make any definite move for
several days, aa influences are still
at work looking to a peaceful settle
ment. The air is filled with alarming
rumors and the exodus of Americans
to Vera Cruz continues. The em
ployes of the Waters-Pierce Oil com
pany believe they are in danger of
their lives as General Huerta is gen
erally credited with blaming that com
pany for the present trouble.
Ciudad Juarez has fallen again!
For the sixth time in three years
the Mexican city across the Rio
Grande changed governments when
2,000 rebels, led by General Pancho
Villa, attacked and captured the town
between 2:30 and S o'clock in tho
morning. Taken by surprise the Fed
eral garrison of about 400 men put up
a weak resistance.
So unprepared for battle were the
federal defenders that Villa's troops
actually reached the center of the
town before a single shot was fired.
Although an accurate count has not
$40.00 Suits sale at $20.00
$7.50 Skirts sale at $3.98
been coiwnleted it is estimated that
forty persons were killed in the fight
ing. Thf rebels lost five men, the
federal (lead Is estimated at thirty
aud four or five noncombatants were
killed. Among them was Charles
Pefgurson, an El Paso automobile
driver, who was on the main street
in Juarez in his automobile.
The rebels took 125 federal prisoners,-
flfi.000 rounds of ammunition, two
(ield pieces and two machine guns
all in addition to an important border
port of entry and a military strategic
General Francisco Castro, com
mander of the Juarez garrison, is
among the missing. It is the general
opinion that he escaped. His scab
bard, sword and epaulets were found
In his residence and General Villa
has them for souvenirs.
Hundreds of federal defenders and
civilian sympathizers became prison
ers of the former bandit chief. First
of these to receive Judgment at the
hands of the new dictator was Cap
tain Jose Torres. He was placed
against an adobe wall in the plaza
in the border of the city and his life
was shot out.
From that time rifles were pop
ping all over the city of Juarez, and
river when the embargo on traffic was
raised, came with horrifying tales of
executions in all quarters.
Some told of men shouting "Viva
Mexico!" as they knelt before the
firing squad and paid the penalty for
espousing the Huerta cause in place
of Carranza. Others told of men beg
ging, with tear-filled eyes, for a chance
to send a note to a wife, a child or a
father or mother. Others told of
piteous appeals for a trial by civil
office and jury. No appeals were
Villa was Arm. "It must be done;
traitors must pay the penalty," he
declared. "Huerta murdered our Con
stitutional president; he would mur
der the liberty of Mexico. His sup
porters must die for the good of our
Villa did not deny the executions,
but declared that only men known to
be traitors had been killed. He ad
mitted the killing of Torres and also
of Colonel Enrique Portillo, but ex
cused the rirst execution with the de
claration tliet Torres had been a Con
stitutionalist and had deserted to the
federals at Torreon.
He also declared that Portillo,
while never actively embracing the
Constitutionalist cause since the death
of Madero, had done traitorous acts
that made his death "necessary" to
the liberty of Mexico.

WORST DISASTER IN HISTORY
Corpses of Victims Continue to Wash
Ashore-All Along the Lakes Work
of Identification Proceeds Slewly.
The storm which raged over the
Great Lakes last week was the worst
in the recollection of the oldest in
habitants, resulting in the loss of near
ly 300 lives, the destruction of at least
fifteen vessels carrying crews of from
six to thirty men each, and a property
loss placed at $5,000,000.
The details of tho storm, whlsh
literally swept from the western end
of Lake Superior to the eastern shore
of Lake Erie, became known only
when survivors began arriving in
various ports with tales of hardship:!
and heroic rescues seldom equaled
on the lakes.
On land the storm hit hardest at
Cleveland, where twenty-one Indies of
snow fell, five persons were k Med
and ten others lost and where SJ.OOO,
0000 damage was caused to property,
chiefly telegraph and telephone sys
terns, thus cutting that city out of di
rect communication for three days.

ing a serious menace to navigation,
It Is charged, but ii has been left
without a marker to guide steamers
passing up and down the lake. It is
claimed there are many captains and
wheelmen who are not yet familiar
with the location of the derelict.
Messages indicate tHaf Late Huron
holds another overturned mystery
ship besides the one a few miles north
east of here a red bottomed steamer
having been reported off Harbor
Beach. The first report of this vessel
came from Duluth. The Detroit head
quarters of tho Lake Carriers' associa
tion received a message confirming
the Duluth report. Many believe she
is the James S. Carruthers or Toronto.
Besides the foregoing there are more
than a score of vessels wbieh were
either totally or partially destroyed
without loss of life. v
Interest centered again fipon the
identity of the overturned' freighter
which lies in the lake a few miles
northeast of here.
SCORE KILLED, 200 INJURED
Excursion Train Wrecked by Broken
Twenty persons were killed and 250
injured when a Central of Georgia
passenger train fell through a high
trestle four miles east of Clayton, Ala.
Five coaches made up the train, 'which
was en route from Ozark to Eufaula,
Nearly all the dead and injured were
whites. The train was running from
Ozark bound for Eufaula, where the
Barbour county fair was to open. It
was late and going at a high rate of
speed. While turning a sharp curv
the three rear coaches of the five-car
train, all crowded to capacity, were
whipped off the track and rolled do-n
a forty-foot embankment. The wood
en coaches were torn to bits and hard
ly a single occupant, including scores
of women and children, escaped un
hurt. The locomotive and the first
two cars remained on the track.
J. D. Clayton, a brother of Congress
man Clayton, and Sheriff Teal of Br

jured. Railroad officials say a broken re 11
caused the accident.
