DAMAGING EVIDENCE HEARD IN
TRIAL NIECES COUNT*
ELECTION FRAUD CASE.
CORPUS CHRIST!, Tex., Sept. ».—
By the testimony of ten witnesses to-
day the government in the case of
forty-ons eitizens of Nuoces county
charged with connection with irregu-
larities in the 1»14 general elections,
sought to prove that "pay stations"
were maintained on the "hill" (the
Mexican quarter of Corpus Christ!).
The casa is being tried in federal
court before Judge Walter T. Burns.
The government counsel, through tes-
timony of today's witnesses, endeav-
ored also to prove that money was
paid Mexicans and other persons to
vote for various candidates for coun-
ty offices; that bribery was practiced
and that other frauds were perpetrat-
ed by the defendants. .
Ambrosio Cantu, a Mexican witness,
testified that August Uehlinger, a de-
fendant, during January, 1814, gave
him money to pay his city and county
poll taxes and that In the general elec-
tion Ed Castleberry, another defend-
ant, gave him two dollars to vote for
the democratic candidates.
Money For Poll Taxes.
J. O. Carr, Ray Carr and Dave Bar-
rera testified that Uehlinger had giv-
en them money to pay their poll taxes
in 1914. The two Carrs also testi-
fied that A. Lamlnger, a defendant,
told them to go to Uehlinger for the
money to pay their poll taxes. They
testified they were not here during
the general election ond did not vote.
Barrera testified he was affiliated
with the "independents" and voted
their ticket, which opposed the dem-
ocrats in 1914.
By testimony of J. H. Hipp, F. W.
Gregory, R. M. Moorehead, Matt Dunn
and B. M. Selle, the government at-
tempted to prove Its allegations of
"ray stations" on the "hill," at which
the government alleges Mexicans who
voted the democratic ticket were "paid
Sim Alvarado testified that on the
day of the election Dennis Kelly, one
of the defendants, offered him five
dollars to vote for him (Kelly) and
that he had refused to do so.
On cross examination it was brought
out that Kelly was not a candidate
for any office in 1914.
By witnesses Julian Dorenfield, Si*.,
and E. L. Caldwell, the government
sought to prove that defendant W. H.
Hull had in his possession a number
of poll tax receipts and by Witness
Caldwell to also prove that Amos
Roark, also a defendant, was a par-
ticipant In what evidently the gov-
ernment Intended to prove as an ille-
gal issuance of poll tax receipts.
Dorenfield testified that some time
last summer Hull, at the latter's of-
fice here, had shown him a bundle of
poll tax receipts "probably from fif-
teen to twerity-ffve," and had said
"We must all work together to get out
a big democratic vote." Witness said
he was not close enough to see the
writing on the papers but that he
"knew they were poll tax receipts."
Bundle of Receipts.
Caldwell testified that when on the
day of January, 1914, he went to the
court house to pay his taxes he saw
Roark give Hull a package of what
he "assumed he was sure" were poll
tax receipts. He believed about fif-
teen or twenty poll tax receipts were
in the bundle. He did not see the top
receipt and did not know positively
that ithe papers were poll taxes but
that he "was quite sure that they
Matt Dunn testified that on the
morning of the 1914 election Tom
Dunn, another defendant, was on the
"hill" and that he asked him if he
(Tom Dunn) was going to help "those
fellows." Witness testified that Tom
Dunn replied that he had fifty dol-
lars of his own money he was going
to spend in behalf of the democratic
On cross examination Matt Dunn
was asked if he had ever been indict-
ed in Nueces county for a felony. He
replied: "Yes, four times, but I was
a' ^ays acquitted."
On re-direct testimony he said the
last indictment was returned thirty-
five years ago.
B. M. Selle testified he saw Tom
Dunn at a blacksmith shop about 150
feet from Stevens' office on the hill
and saw about six Mexicans go to the
blacksmith shop and hand what he
thought were poll taxes and that Tom
Dunn gave them "some sort of an
Cross examination brought out that
he was about sixty feet from the place
at the time and could not say whether
it was poll taxes that were being
showh to Tom Dunn by the Mexicans
but that he "guessed they were" and
that he did not know what Tom Dunn
wrote at the time.
Lee Rlggs, a defendant, was next
called and refused to testify.
Heard Money Rattling.
J. K. Hipp in the last general elec-
tion a candidate for county commis-
sioner on the independent ticket, tes-
tified that on election day he went on
the "hill" to see what was "going
on." He said that automobiles were
bringing Mexicans near the polling
places and he saw a number of Mexi-
cans go Into the office of Henry
Stevens and that when two of them
came out he heard them rattle "some-
ing that sounded like money."
Witness testified he noticed a num-
ber of white men come out of Stevens'
office and that most of them had
"their right hand in their pocket." He
swore he saw County Judge W. F.
Timon, Russell Savage, Henry Stevens,
Porfirio Garza and other defendants
on the "hill" during the day.
After the polls closed he walked
past Stevens' office and saw defend-
ant Martin Kelly "strip a ten dollar
bill off a roll of bills" and hand the
ten dollar bill to Angel Guiterrez,

BERLIN, via London, Sept. 9.—Ger-
many's note to tha United State* bear-
ing on the sinking of the White Star
Hbo steamer Arable en August 1»,
which was communicated to the
American ambassador, James W.
Gerard, for transmission to Washing-
ton Is In the form of a memorandum
under date of September 7, the teat
of which follows:
"On August 19 a German submarine
stopped the English steamer Dunsley
about sixteen nautical miles south of
Kinsale and was on the point of sink-
ing the prize by gun fire after the
crew had left the vessel. At this
moment the commander saw a large
steamer making di/ectly toward him.
The steamer, as developed later, was
the Arabic. She was recognized as
an enemy vessel as she did not fly any
flag and bore no neutral markings.
"When she approached she altered
her original course, but then again
pointed directly toward the submarine.
From this the commander became
convinced that the steamer had the
Intention of attacking and ramming
"In order to anticipate this attack
he gave orders for the submarine to
dive and fired a torpedo at the steam-
er. After firing he convinced himself
that the people on board were being
rescued in fifteen boats.
"According to his Instructions thi
commander was not allowed to attack
the Arabic without warning and with-
out saving the lives unless the ship
attempted to escape or offered re-
sistance. He was forced, however, to
conclude from the attendant circum-
stances that the Arabic planned a vio-
lent attack on^the submarine.
"This conclusion is all the more
obvious as he had been fired upon
at a distance in the Irish sea on Au-
gust 14—that Is a few days before—
by a large passenger steamer appar-
ently belonging to the British Royal
Mail Steam Packet company, which
he had neither attacked nor stopped.
"The German governmeot most
deeply regrets that lives were lost
through the action of the commander.
It particularly expresses this regret to
the government of the United States
on account of the death of American
"The German government is unable,
however, to acknowledge obligations
to grant Indemnity in the matter, even
if the commander should have been
mistaken as to the aggressive inten-
tions of the Arabic.
"If it should prove to be the case
that it is impossible for the QfiT-
man and American governmentsto-.
reach a harmonious opinion ofl this
point, the German government would
be prepared to sibmit the differences
of opinion as being a question of in-
ternational law, to The Hague tri-
bunal for arbitration, pusuant to
article 38 of The Hague convention
for the pacific settlement of In ter-

matter of course the arbitral decis-
ion shall not be admitted to have the

One Time Mexican
President Is Dying
SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Sept. 9.—
Former Mexican President Eulalio
Gutierrez, elected a year ago by the
Aguas Callentes military convention,
is on his death Bed In a mining camp
north of the City of Mexico, according
to friends who reached this city today.
While fleeing from a band of Car-
ranzistas, General Guiterrez was
wounded in the right leg. Lack of
proper medical attention at the time
soon infected the limb with gangrene
and as a result the former president
of Mexico is not expected to live.
Colonel Carlos Dominguez, one of
Guiterrez's followers, who arrived here
last night, refused to give the name of
the mining town in which Guiterrez is
hiding but says that it is only a ques-
tion of days before the former Mexi-
can president Is a corpse.
Mexican Is Fugitive
From Native Land
SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Sept. ».—
General Luclo Blanco, once prominent
Mexican official and minister of gu-
bernacion In the cabinet of President
Guiterrez, arrived here today a fugi-
tive from Mexico, suffering many
hardships before he reached the bor-
der. He was accompanied by Dr. Ra-
mon Ullardate and Col. Carlos Domin-
guez, former chief of police at Mex-
ico City. Almost penniless and weary
from the long travel by circuitous
routes In Mexico to avoid his enemies,
General Blanco declares he will not
return to Mexico until permanent
peace has been restored. Eight months
ago Blanco was at the head of a vic-
torious army of 8,000 men.

Senator Machado Palis Victim of As-

leal Difference*—His Career.
SAN JACINTO. Sept. •.—The sssas-
sination yesterday of Senator Plnheiro
Machado has caused a profound sen-
sation throughout Brazil. The Span-
iard charged with bis murder bas con-
fessed, the authorities say that he had
no accompllccs and that he killed Sen
ater Machada because he blamed the
politician for the misfortune which had
befallen his fsmily.
Pinch ciro Machado frequently was
referred to as ths "boss" of Brazil.
He was president' of the senate and
leader of the conservatives, but had
become unpopular of late because he
championed the cause of Former
President Fonseca, who recently was
elected to the senate.
Machado, who was reputed to be im-
mensely wealthy, was credited with
playing an important part in bring-
ing about the election of President
Bras. It was said he forced the
proclamation of martial law in the
Rio Janeiro early In 1914 as a piece
of political strategy.
