Villa troops in Saltillo was begun by
about 15,000 Constitutionalist troops

Carranza forces were attacking from
mountains about the city and were
powrirog in a fire from fifteen cannon.
The Villa troops occupied Saltillo
two days ago by a trick and without a
fight. The Carranza forces under Gen
eral Antonio I. Villareal had evacuated
the city to proceed against Villa forces
which they met and defeated at La
Brisa and Marte.
Meanwhile, however, another Villa
force had marched through the moun
tains to the southeast of Ssiltillo and
entered ttie city. The Carranza army
returned in force early to-day.
Reports at noon from Carranza
sources claimed that the advantage lay

movement to share profits with em

and improved on original plans until

ABBOTT AND PENNYPACKER
Coatlaurd From First !'■((.
j vania and Reading Railroad Companies,
j and railroad officials.
Several of the attorneys had been
•heard when that phase of the question
I requiring argument from Mr. Abbott
: As Mr. Abbott advanced to begin his
argument he was stopped by Chairman i
' I'ennypacker, who reminded him that j
he hail filed fifteen questions with the
Commission based on the fact that Com
missioner Johnson had conversed with
a railroad official on the proposed tc
| tion of the Commission iu the matter
: of passenger rates before such action
had been made public. At this point
j Commissioner Penny-packer quoted the
I law defining the rights of the Commis
sioners and held that Commissioner
Johnson was clearly within the law
when he held converse with the rail
i road officer.
"What Commissioner Johnson did,"
said Commissioner Pennypacker, "was
especially provided for. We have se
cured the methods of procedure of fif
teen Public Service Commissions in as
many States, and find that each pur
sues the same course. These letters
will be printed. It is our intention in
j the future, when it is necessary to se
cure information, to pursue the same
; course. Commissioner Johnson was
doing just what he was entitled to do.''
Mr. Abbott Has No Apology
Mr. Abbott listened respectfully,
with half a smile on his face, aud when
Commissioner Pennypacker seemed to
finish Mr. Abbott moved up as if about
jto speak. Then Commissioner Penny-
I packer again halted him with:
"Your questions were entirely irrele
vant, and tiling tlieni was not even con
sidered. We cannot overlook the fact
that they are not on record. The Com
mission will give you the opportunity
| to withdraw the questions."
"If you please—" said Mr. Abbott,
lie was interrupted toy Mr. Penny-pack
i er, who said:
"We don't vfrant to hear any aigu-1
Mr. Abbott apparently was not in the
| least perturbed. Walking up to the
' desk, he said:
"I am going to reply to your re
marks. This law does not give Com
missioner Johnson any authority to do
as he did. I have uo apology to make.
I mn heie to appear for my clients, and
I will be heard." (This he said very
loudly and heatedly.)
''Do 1 understand that you will not
withdraw the irrelevant questions?"
asked Mr. Pennypacker.
Mr. Abbott paused and then said he
would withdraw the questions. "But,"
he added, "they will be placed before
the Committee on Executive Nomina
tions in the Senate."
Coinmissiouc<- Pennypacker here told
Mr. Abbott that attorneys were having
a hearing before the Commission not
as a matter of right, but on sufferance.
During the very scrappy scene the
attorneys looked on amazed, but Abbott
held his own. and proceeded with his
1 argument, carrying it to a conclusion.
The hearing was resumed this after

years, the parallel thus going baca
' broadly to the American Civil war. To
' day's high prices were supported by
■ dispatches teilinig of excitement in the
■ grain trade at Liverpool, and admitting
I that demand there was keen.
In the next hour another fent a
i bushel was added to previous values, so
i | that May wheat here was quoted at

; i It was also stated that a largo of Dur

$2.0" a bushel, delivered in Italy.
Only 24 hours ago it was thought n
inarvel to get $1,991/., for Durum that
was also bought subject to the cost of
all charges to the Mediterranean.
Before the day was ever, commis
sion houses found it necessary to de
mand a big increase of margins from
customers who sought to trade in
wheat. The violent changes in the
| market resulted in a margin c,t' 10c a
bushel being generally required. Re

ATTACK WOOD FULP RATES
Paper Mill Men Say Peunsy's Charges
Are Too High and Railroads Put ✓
in Vigorous Denial
The advance of 10 cents a ton by the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company, for
the transportation of pulp wood from
points both within and without the
State of Pennsylvania to paper mills
located at Tyrone, Williamsburg, 1 ,ock
Haven, Roaring Spring, York Haven
and Johnsontourg, was attacked before
the Public Service Commission by Wil
liam A. Glasgow, Jr., representing the
West Virginia Pulp and Paper Com
pany aud the New York and Pennsyl
vania Company. The rates were defend
ed by William I. Shaffer and Frederick
L. Ballard, of counsel for the respond
It was argued in defense of the rates
that when they are compared with
rates on other similar kinds of wood
in the same territory, and when the
financial situation of the respondent is
taken into consideration, that the new
rates are entirely proper and that the
effect of the advance hae been merely
to restore them to their normal basis.
It was also explained that the respond
ents, in common with other carriers, 111
this section of the country, have for a
number of years been faced with the
urgent necessity of increasing their net
revenue if their properties are to be
maintained so as adequately to serve
the public and their credit is to be
such as to enable them to secure new
capital for future development.
Mr. Glasgow contended that the rail
road made no effort to ascertain the
cost of transportating pulp wood or the
profitableness of the former rates, nor
did it consider the remunerative nature
of the traffic. The fact that this com
modity, he said,"took a lower rate than
other commodities is hot a justification
of the reasonableness of the increased
rates and declared that even the rates
in existence prior to the increase were
unjust and unreasonable.

SCENE FROM "TWIN
It is rarely that local playgoers have an opportunity to see one of the
greatest successes of the current New York theatrical season in its first year, but
that is what the management has secured for the Majestic to-morrow, matinee
and night. "Twin Beds" is the attraction, now in its sixth laughing festival
month at the Pulton theatre, New York, with no signs of waning popularity. Not
since Margai-et Mnvo, who is, the author, wrote "Babv Mine," has this country
seen such dean, pure, unadulterated farce. The dramatic cleanliness shown by
Miss Mayo might, be copied by certain French authors.
"Twin Beds" deals with the felicity and annoyances of three married couples
living in the same apartment house; the Hawking in the center, an Italian grand
opera star and his wife, iSignor Monti, above them, anti the aowly wed Larking
