Dodd on Saturday was e\|iea:1<Ml hourly today. After a brief halt at Minaca to procure supplies and fresh horses, the victorious American, detachment is reported to have resumed the chase. With Dodd closing in on their west, the bandits are believed to lie hemmed in by other American forces at Providencia and San Antonio, across the mountains. The Villistas were making for the inac cessible mountain country east of Minaca at last reports. Villa Not Mentioned. While official reports made no mention of Villa's whereabouts, Aviator Willis who passed through here to Fort Sam Houston to be treated for injuries, expressed the belief that Villa was in the section between Minava and Satevo. Most of the expeditionary forces are concentrated at the Namiquipa and Dublan case camps today, but a picked force of several hundred cavalrymen are far below Namiquipa keeping up tbe search for the bandit leader. Here Are Demands. The United States must name a date for the withdrawal of the expedition irrespective of the outcome of the hunt for Villa is understood to be one of the demands Genera! Obregon will make according to the coming border conference with Gen. Scott. Among the other demands Obregon wil Imake according to the Mexican authorities are: "The V. S. must agree not to seize any Mexican railroad. "The r. S. must not send additional troops into Mexico." Shooting Takes Place Office with no Witnesses Present. in By I'nited Press. Nashville. Tenn., April 27.—Attorney Charles C. Trabue, out on $25,- 000 bond, refused today to make any statement in regard to the killing of Attorney Harry S. Stokes yesterday. Trabue is charged with first degree murder. Stokes was counsel for "taxpayers" in a suit which involved investigation of missing city books. Trabue was engaged two months ago to aid the city's legal department. Frequent clashes between the two occurred during the hearings. Stokes was hit by two of three shots fired in his office. The police say there are no witnesses to the shooting, although several persons were in an adjoining room. Trabue claims the shooting was in self defense. LOYALTY OF MASSES LEADS TO COLLAPSE Of Dublin Revolt and Situation Is Reported Quiet at the Capital. ad ELKUS WILL GET JOB AT TURKEY By I'nited Press. Washington, April 27.— President Wilson has decided to nominate Abram 1. Klkus to succeed Henry Morgenthau as ambassador to Turkey. It was authoritatively learned today. IRISH LEADERS GIVE ASSURANCES OF AID Inaction of Ministers Is Blamed by Press for the Revolt. By I'nited Press. Ijomlon, April 27.—The loyally of the Irish nationalist leaders and the masses in Ireland to the British gov- ei-riment has resulted in the collapse of the Dublin revolt. Official dispatches today reported the situation now comparatively quiet in the Irish capital. It is possible more fighting may occur while government troops are rounding up the Sinn Fein rebels but the arrivals of troops from England apparently disheartened the rebels who lacked machine guns. The government has received assurances of support from scores of Irish leaders who deplore the outbreak at Dublin. Resignation Demanded. The London newspapers today- launched a fierce attack upon Chief Secretary for Ireland Birrell and Lord Wimborne, demanding their immediate resignations. The Express, Daily Telegraph and Post joined with the N'orthcliffe papers in de- clearing that Birrell's weakness and irresolution were responsible for the Sinn Fein uprising. The Express demands that Lord Kitchener be sent to Ireland as lord lieutenant. "The Government.'' said the Express, "must jettison the ministers whose inaction made possible the scene that disgraced Dublin." Indicating that the crisis has passed, the censor today passed for publication several press dispatches from Ireland, which brought circumstantial reports of the capture of Sir Koger Casement and his 22 German confederates. ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦ GOT lilUAKI VSTS 1 IIEE ♦ By I'nited Press. . ♦ New York, April 27.

MAY SUGGEST WAY FOR GERMAN ACTION Marked Relief Is Expressed at Capital on Turn of Affairs. By United Press Washington. April 27.—Hope of ;i peaceful settlement of the submarine issue was increased in congress today when members read Secretary Lansing's memorandum denning proper activities by armed merchantmen and warning Americans to keep off those which do not live up to the terms named. Its publication, some 'lelicvcd. might suggest to German officials a way to accede to I'nited States demands, a course otherwise difficult Ivecause of the rep<>rte<l at- •itude of the German public While the state department made clear that the clauses in the memorandum relating to possible warnings were only incidental to the main purpose of the document, the Issuance of few, if any, warnings being anticipated, yet a salutary effect on those congressmen who have urged warning resolutions was expected. For one thing, it was suggested, the department has made clear the limitations that must surround any proposal to warn. In the belief that this memorandum would be a factor in maintaining peace between Germany and the I'nited States, some senators and representatives showed marked relief. ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦ ♦ THREW MONEY AWAY ♦ Columbus, 0., April 27. 4 it's a good thing Steve Gtor- ♦ I ' ord elieiii't mow the ♦ lawn Ibis morniatl ; ♦ night Steve . rife ♦ from his house, broke ap the ♦ furniture- and threw his sav- ♦ ings to the four winds Po ♦ lice early today recovered ♦ $4.7.'

Columbus, O., April 27—Governor Willis conferred special honor today on Captain John A. Fisher of Chil- licothe, a veteran of both the Mexican and Civil wars, participating in the ceremonies at Columbus, April 27.—President Woodrow Wilson was easily the popular Democratic candidate for president in the state primaries and former Senator Theodore E, liurton was the most popular Republican candidate. With more than half the state making unofficial returns, these two men have apparently run far in tIn- lead. If the rest of the state maintains the same vote estimates are that President Wilson will receive about 7"j,000 and Senator Burton about 140,000 votes. A number of important points are made plain in the primary returns compiled here. One is the practical certainty that Gov. Willis will meet former Gov. Cox as the Democratic candidate at the fall election. The national significance is the almost total lack of interest shown by the Roosevelt members of the Republican party. While his name was written in a few ballots, his following was negligible. The same is true of Henry Ford, whose belated candidacy received little support. The strength shown by President Wilson caused surprise in view of the fact that Frank S. Monnett ran as an anti- Wilson candidate for delegate. The president led the ticket in most sec tions of the state, although in Hamilton county he ran behind, there being a strong hostile feeling to him there, that had been fully developed. While there had been talk that Senator Burton was not to be given enthusiastic support and might lag in the voting, the results show he romped in many lengths ahead even of Senator Harding, who led the candidates for delegate at large. Inofficial returns from over 3,1500 precincts in were studied with care b] politicians. They show incongruity on both tickets surprising to political observers. The figures show as follows: Glaser 24,944, Giffin rj2,:iH7, Harding 87,922, Proctor 6f>,104, Sullivan 63,868, Tyler 25.924, Willis 80,305.1 If the same ratio is maintained oven the state, the total vote would lie: j Glaser 35,000, Giffin 45,000, Hard-j ing 124,000. Proctor 90,000, Sulli-' van 87,000, Tyler 811,000, Willis. 112,000. There was a state wide fight made; against John .1. Sullivan, but the low vote for Col. William Cooper j Proctor caused a surprise about the! state house. Gov. Willis finished an easy seconu , and is expected to be about 10,000 behind Senator Harding. Former Gov. James M. Cox has a big lead over his running mates on the Democratic ticket and is expected ..y |- to finish in first place with ease.

Ottawa, Ont., April 27. — Fire breaking out in the central military stores here last night was quickly brought under control and the damage was placed at only about $5,555 today. The blaze was confined to the section of the building in which it started. Hospital supplies, agateware, brushes, blankets and similar material was stored there. Authorities do not believe the fire was incendiary. First reports were that there had been an explosion, but it was later discovered this was only the "backfire" from one of the big military trucks. Guards prevented any one from entering the building. A considerable number of machine guns and quantities of small arms and ammunition are stored in the building. BRITISH IS SUNK TWO PLANTS ARE CLOSED AT The British IHT OF DANGER IS PASSED Danger of Diplomatic Break Is Not Feared at N Berlin, NO REPETITION OF ACTS EXPECTED | Negotiations Will Proceed Without Danger of Further Violations. IJV CARL \\. ACKERMAN. United Press Staff Correspondent. Beriia, via Amsterdam. April 27. —The crisis in the German-American situation growing out of the .submarine controversy has virtually passed. There will lie no rupture of diplomatic relations predicated on any developments to date. The United Press is able to make this statement today on most excellent authority. Pending negotiations for a more complete . understanding, . German submarine commanders will be under certain explicit Instructions from t*je admiralty.. What these instructions will be is not known . They will be of such a nature, however, as to furnish assurance that there will be no repetition of the acts complained of by the United States while negotiations are in progress. High Point Is Passed. The high point of danger is said to have been reached and passed two days ago when the foreign office received certain information respecting the attitude of President Wilson. I Opinion differs as to whether chief , creeiit rests with ambassador Gerard or Ambassador Bernstorff. The latter unquestionably has phved an ! important part, since it is generally i understood he was given a rather , free- Ik.tui in handling the negotia- i tions. Although matters have not reached a complete B-etUement, then is a ! feeling of confidence here that Bernstorff will be equal to the pres- lly I'nilc-d Press.
