OFFERING FOR EVANGELIST
Free Will Offering on Final Day,
Amounting to 037,215.43, Goes to
Sunday Revivalist Enthusiastic.
Preaching to 50,000 men and women
In Pittsburg Rev. W. A. Sunday closod
what lie says Is the treatest revival
lie ever held and what is perhaps the
greatest ever hold by any evangelist.
The immense tabernacle at Forbes
street mid lielleiield avenue was
packed to capacity' crowds at all the
services on the closing day.
More than 1,300 men and women
professed conversion to Mr. Sunday
at' the final- services, bringing the
total for the campaign to 2B,7!I7.
The evangelist was highly elated ovr
his success. It lias been the greatest
of his career.
"Hasn't It been wonderful?" he said
after his sermon.
"There has never been anything like
it. It has been marvelous. The spirit
of enthusiasm and co-operation given
us here has been greater than we had
ever hoped for. The biggest business
men of your city have got in under
and helped us along. Men who are
the financial backbone not only of
riltsburg, but the entire nation be
cause of the Industries they represent,
have given us their best support.
Words cannot express my gratitude."
At the three services In the taber
nacle on Sunday the free will offering
for the evangelist totaled $10,34:1.55.
The churches, where special offerings
were taken, and the total of personal
contributions brought the total to
bays S'olen Coat Fell In His Arms.
Averring t lint the overcoat fell Into
his arms as he wps passing a stor

two glasses of whisky and one glass
of beer Smith said he tf!d not realize
the coat was in his amis until he was
placed under arrest.

ACTION BY JOHN
Villa's Kilting ot Benton Has
Stirred Up England
TENSE SITUATION IS CREATED
Rebel General Declares Scotchman
Was in Plot to Assassinate Him and
Court-Martial Sentenced Benton.
That the death of William S. Den
ton, Scotchman, In Juarez, Mex., may
he made the occasion of demands
upon the United States to take somo
action in Mexico is regarded in Wash
ington as quite probable. It is not
seen, however, Just whut there Is that
the United States can do in the mat
ter now that Denton Is dead.
There .Is no disposition In well
informed 1 ouarters to believe that
Great Britain will venture anything
drastic or press the United States to
an uncomfortable degree as a result
of the Denton case.
It Is regarded as likely, however,
that the Incident may stir up bad feel
ing in England and Europe and result
In Increased pressure on the United
States in favor of American interven
tion in Mexico.
The United States government will
have the keenest Interest In whatever
course the British government decides
upon when informed of the killing of
Official notice of the death of Benton
was received by Secretary Bryan In
dispatches from Consul Edwards nt
Juarez. Consul Edwards saw General
Villa In person and from him obtained
the fact that Benton was dead.
That Villa may have killed lilttl
with his own hand is not regarded ns
Improbably and his hasty departure
for the south on a special train Im
mediately after it became known In
Juarez that Benton was dead Is re
gaded here as a fact giving the case
a more ugly appearance.
Benton Struck at Villa.
William S. Benton, the Scotchman,
was executed hy Pancho Villa In
Juarez because he dared to resent an
epithet hurled at him by Villa.
Benton, twenty years a resident of
Mexico, still a subject of Great Britain,
went to Villa to protest at depreda
tions hy Villa's men 011 his ranch In
Villa cursed Aid slapped him and
Benton drew back to strike Villa In
resentment when Villa knocked him
down with his revolver. Whether the
man was shot by Villa as he lay on
the floor or was later executed by
order of the rebel court-martial, as
officially stated by rebel' officers, Is
not positively known.
A Mexican man who -was present
with- several -others 1n Villa's ofllces
when the. difficulty occurred between
the Rritish nltlzen and the rebel chief
Villa related his version of the story
to American Consul Edwards at a con
ference In the American consulate at
Juarez and a few hours later the rebel
leader hurried south to Cliihuuhua In
a special train.
Castillo Fears Assassination.
Hundreds of persons crowded the
vacant space in front of the depot at
El Paso, Tex., when the train arrived
from Haclilta, N. M., with Muximo
Castillo, charged with being the leader
of a gang of bandits in Mexico.
Castillo rather crouched than
walked, as If he expected assassina
tion as soon as he faced the crowd,
but there was not even a Jeer. The
man, accused as his latest offense of
wrecking a passenger train two weeks
ago in burning ('umbra tunnel and
sending fifty-one persons to their
death, was completely surrounded by
twenty negro troopers of the Ninth
United States cavalry.
Castillo's head hung low on his
breast and he tried hard to keep from
the gaze of the people who had crowd
ed the streets.
"It looks like the end," he said, re
ferring to his capture. "I fought to try
to help Mexico he free, but there are
others who will carry on the war. I
am an old man now and by the time I
get my liberty again it may be too
late for me to do more."

GN CANAL TOLLS
President Stands For Repeal;
Nothing Else Will Do
WHEAT PRICE POOL ALLEGED
Government Will Build Railroad In
Alaska and May Operate It; Bill
Authorizing This Passes the Senate.
Presitli nt Wilson let it be known
that he Is confident the free tolls pro
vision of the Panama canal act will
be repealed at tills session of con
gress. it was evident from things the presi
dent said that he will insist upon the
outright repeal of the objectionable
provisions and will refuse uny compro
mise that may be evolved with a view
of retaining the tree tolls provision
for American coastwise vessels.
This became known when the presi
dent's attention was called to a com
promise plan suggested among the
house members. This provided for the
extension of the privilege of free pas
sage to coastwise vessels of all
nations. In other words to Canadian
vessels plying between east and west
coasts of Canada and to the South
The president disclosed the fact tlmt
although the compromise had not been
brought to his attention for serious
consideration he viewed It as embody
ing a discrimination against the tax
payers of the United States, because
they would really bear the burden ot
furnishing free passage to the coast
wise ships of the world.
In this connection the president
made it clear that his advocacy of the
free tolls proposition Is not grounded
on the belief that it Involves n viola
tion of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, hut
because It confers a special privilege
on certain interests at the expense ot
the whole people.
