"General Gollazo has been in close touch with Gomez for the past three days. I.ast night another column joined in the operations resulting in probably the biggest battle in the history of Cuba. "More than 3000 men participated in the combat. Full details are lacking but It is known that besides prisoners, the rebels lost a hundred killed and many wounded. Among the prisoners are Gomez's son, Miguel Mariano; his secretary, Domaso Pasalodos and Mencias, his son-in- law, with Dr. Matias Duque. "All the prisoners will be tried before the proper tribunals. which the government has given out and which the revolutionary committee in New York has been branding as untrue. It is to be hoped that the American public will show its disapprobation of the methods of Ferrara and his associates, adopted to bring discredit to the United States.

Ample pardon has been offered and will be extended to all who show they are sincerely sorry for their offense against the republic." pouring into the bandit leader's hands inciting him to activity against the United States and against Carranza, while at the same time German agents work through officials or the Carranza government seeking to align that side against the United States. Just back from a trip into the interior of Mexico, I can state these facts on the highest authority: Agents of the German government in Mexico approached Francisco Villa at his headquarters at Bustillo's rach about-Feb. 12, with a proposition to renew his raids on the border in case of a declaration of war between the United States and Ger many.

FEDERAL SERVICE CLOSES III New Yorl^, Mar. 8.—As a federal grand jury began today to probe the activities here of Dr. Chandra Cha- kiaberty and Dr. Ernest Sckunner, federal secret service agents throughout the country were believed to-be rapidly closing in on the "master mind" who carried out German plot orders from 76 Wilhelm Strasse Berlin secret service headquarters. Revelations to secret service agents here and in Washington indicate that there is fast coming to light a plot which stretched its mysterious tentacles Into Mexico, Cuba, the Philippines, and wrapped themselves around the Panama canal. Sensational disclosures are expected soon when a new arrest is made. Identity of the man now under eur- velllance haa not been disclosed but hia arrest la expected to be a profoundly surprising disclosure. Papers taken from among the effects of the Hindu and German now held in New Tork revealed to secret service officials code messages from 76 Wilhelm Strausse and mentioned addresses in Petrograd and Paris, Indicating, lt is believed that these arrdesaes, presumably of agents for the Hindu's "nerve pills" were really notations of German agents'. headquarters. A communication signed hy Chin, the mysterious Chinaman who was to have directed a plot in China to smuggle arms and munitions to India, was found. extended over two days. Af first Villa demurred against any attack on the border, in force, under any circumstances. At length an agreement was reached that is case of war Villa would send small bands as unattached bandits to operate at widely separted points along the international line and to make sporadic forays to harass American troops. Under the terms of agreement the German agents promised to pay Villa 500,000 pecos (250,000) in gold at once to seal the compact. He refused to enter into the plot until the first payment was handed over. They agreed to pay a large amount each month thereafter in case of war to enable Villa to pay his men, secure ammunition and build up his shattered forces for a campaign. Among officials in Mexico City stories are afloat that two government officials in the first chief's immediate circle of influential men were co-operating directly with German agents. One of the newspapers in the capital is said to be under subsidy to the Germans to print news from the German angle. In other ways German money and influence are at work to sway the actions of the defacto government. Such efforts are rendered comparatively easy by the cross-currents of jealously and ambition of the different military and political leaders.

Evidence increased today, however, that orders to Secretary Daniels providing for immediately arming of American merchant vessels will not be postponed much longer. It was stated by high government officials that the president has received assurances from legal advisers that he has the right and power to proceed with "armed neutrality" despite the senate's failure to act on this measure officially. On the other hand there were still many who believed the president would rather decide to call an extra session of congress immediately and in view of the favorable outlook for limited debate in the senate reintroduce the armed neutrality measure and attempt to get quick action on it. This they argued would remove any possible question or doubt as to the president's course of action ln a very critical situation. At noon Dr. Grayson authorized a statement that the president spent a restful night but had some fever today. The president Is tired as a result of the trying weeks since the diplomatic break with Germany and has been ordered to remain ln bed until be is materially rested and improved This may be several days.
