Tells Orozco He Musn't Bother Americans and Asks
Madero to -Send Troops Which Madero Says He Is
Doing War Department Orders Tents From
St. Louis for Mormon Refugees in El Paso.
Washington D. C July 30. Secretary of state Knox today officially in-
formed Gen. Pascual Orozco leader of the Mexican rebels that raids and attacks
on Americans and American property in northern Mexico must be stopped imme-
diately or the United States would take preventive measures.
President Madero has been requested to send troops to northern Mexico.. He
has answered that troops are on the way and has expressed the belief that the1
trouble will soon be quieted.
Secretary Knox today merely renewed his notice of two months ago that the
United States would hold Mexico to strict account for all damages to Americans or
There still is no thought of armed intervention by the United States in Mexico;
on that point officials are positive.
What has been done is to repeat in more emphatic terms the injunction served
on the Mexican government and upon Orozco himself on April 14 against mistreat-
ment of American citizens and interference with American property in Mexico.
As in the first instance the state department is silent as to what will be done
by the United States government if the warning is disregarded.
RELIEF FOR MORMONS.
Successful efforts were made today to have part of the $1000000 unexpended
balance of the money appropriated for the Mississippi flood sufferers diverted by
congress for use in the relief of the American refugees now pouring into El Paso
The army is to aid the sufferers by giving them tentage for temporary shelter.
Orders have been issued to send tents for 1000 people immediately from St- Louis
It will be about three days before the consignment reaches El Paso.
SMITH'S RELIEF EFFORTS.
Congressman Smith called up in the house late last evening the Fall resolution
authorizing CoL Steever to furnish tents and rations to the refugees. Congressman
Mann the Republican leader objected to its consideration and it was referred to
the military affairs committee. Chairman Hay promised Mr. Smith to bring the
resolution up and have it adopted today.
HOUSE .ADOPTS FALL RESOLUTION.
The house today unanimously adopted the resolution authorizing the military
authorities at El Paso to supply tents and rations to the American refugees there
and it was amended so as to authorize an expenditure of not more than $20000 from
the Mississippi flood sufferers' fund.
Later in the day the senate agreed to the house amendment. The resolution
will be taken to the president and the war department will issue the necessary
authority this evening.
FALL IGNORES STATE DEPARTMENT.
Senator Fall today received a dozen telegrams from El Paso about the serious
situation 4n Mexico for reasons which will be understood he did not take the
matter to the state or war department nor will he do so unless sent for.

Ike. "The votes in precincts 3 7 15 18

It is estimated by Mormon officials
here that in all. 250 women and chil-

and three minor colonies in Chihuahua.

The Robbery of Homes.
Very few men are with the refugees
in El Paso as yet the men preferring
to remain with their homes but many
of them declare they expect to be
robbed of all they have now that the
disorderly element of the different
communities Is thoroughly aware of
their lack of protection. All firearms
liave been taken away and the Mor-
1 mons and other Americans are at the
mercy of any who would rob them. Of
this they are not so much afraid of the
rebels as the camp followers and that
element which in any community in
' any country takes advantage of the
. helpless to pillage and plunder.
J The refugees have been housed mora
comfortably than most of them ex-
(pected the officials of El Paso and of
the Mormon church having been able to
secure some immense vacant lumber
sheds on Magoffin avenue from which
temporary dormitories have been con-
structed. The city has put in water
sewer connections and lights and the
Mormon church is furnishing food to
those unable to buy it Many of the
refugees are without clothing or uten-
