The capture of the town is the

Mexlcall is a small town, inhabit

Two men were in command of the
rebel invading party. Leyva appear
ed to be chief in command. His aid
was Simon. Barthold, a Socialist agi
tator from California, known in Los
Angeles and various coast cities.
Barthold and a party of eight
men arrived from Holtville, Cal., last
night and successfully smuggled a
considerable amount of firearms
across the border. They were joined
during the night by the insurgents
from Mexlcall and vicinity and at
daylight marched to the adobe jail,
where seven prisoners were confined.
These prisoners were insurgents
who had been arrested on order of
the Mexican Government. A demand
was made on the jailer for the re
lease of the prisoners. When he
hesitated a rifle in the hands of one
of the rebels was thrust through the
window and a shot rang out. The
jailer fell dead. The keys to the
cells were then taken and the pris
oners were liberated.
Barthold and two of his men went
to the barracks at the International
line and captured the few men there
without a struggle. Levva then
marched on the customs house and
the subrefecture, which was taken
without resistance. Gustavo Terra
zas'was taken into custody and kept
under close guard.
During the forenoon the insur
gents received accessions to their
ranks from among the citizens of

the neighboring ranches.

that Christ would return to earth
in 1915, he was dramatically chal

Russell and declared that 1915 was,
altogether too soon for the mil

the auditorium. "Let him stay, he's
all right," cried others.
When Pastor Russell was able to
proceed, he declared that the Bible
supported hia contention that the
millenium was soon due. Cuddy
burst forth again, charging Russell
with "rank heresy" and with at
tempting to foist his views on weak
minded and ignorant people who
never read the Bible. The crowd re

threatened arrest but Cuddy defied

would be to disperse the crowd, and

One of the Democratic Paramount.

from one end of the country to the "Since that fateful period the vot-
other. It was not necessary for the
Democratic party to carry out its
threats of un-American policies to
start a panic. The very fact that they
were placed in power and were given
an opportunity to do what theyad
declared they would do caused a
stagnation and started a depression

"Mills were closed down and labor
turned out of employment, to march

threat of Democratic and English
free trade, there were established
soup houses to relieve the bodily
suffering of those who desired work
to support their families men who
were not looking for alms or charity.
The great army of unemployed,
thus deprived of an opportunity to
create wealth by their labor, and
who at the same time were unable
to buy the products of the farmer
and other wealth producers, increas
ed the number of unemployed and
caused produce of all kinds to fall
rapidly in price. Every thing was
cheap, and very cheap, but no mat
ter how cheap cotton or manufact
ured articles, there was no one to
buy. The merchant stopped giving
orders to the factories and stood be
hind his counter idle, with no pur
chaser. "The nation was thus brought face
to face with most dire calamity.
There was suffering, hard times and
stagnation staring us In the face from
every quarter of every State inxthe
Union. The farmers, laborers and
other wealth producers were not
responsible for this catastrophe; they
had carried out the Divine injunc
tion to make two blades of grass
where one grew before. They had
created more wealth than ever be
fore in any year in the.hisory of
this great country. In short, the
country was teeming with the wealth
of products of every kind of human
labor and human ingenuity, and yet
the national body politic was sick
nigh unto death.
The OveiproductIon" Paramount.
"What answer did the Democratic
leaders make to the honest, Indus
trious and progressive people of this
great country in that hour of un
paralleled national distress? They
invented and. raised as the Demo
cratic paramount, in answer to their
incompetence and folly, the cry that
they were not responsible for con
ditions, because the root of the evil
was 'over-production. Thus we see
thai the incompetent party of nega
tion, having wrought such havoc to
national" progress and prosperity, at
tempted to charge the people them
selves with being responsible for the
hard times, hy saying that the wealth
producers were criminaly responsible
because they had produced so much
wealth that it had made them and
the nation poor. .
"Every person in this audience
will remember distinctly that every
fDemocratic politician and every Dem-
ocratlc newspaper from ocean to
ocean kept up for month after month
the continuous cry of 'over-produo-

A Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde Argument.
"In this year of 1910, when there
are more people employed, more
smoke stacks belching forth the evi
dence of a busy hive of industry,
when mother earth has yielded up a
more bountiful increase than ever
before, all under the benign, pro
gressive, and constructive policies of
the great Republican party, what
positiqn do we find our Democratic
"Because labor is not only em
ployed, but employed at an increase
in wages, and because the farmers
and other wealth producers are re
ceiving a higher price for their pro
ducts than ever before, we find the
Democratic speakers and campaign
managers forced to make a two-faced
'Dr7 Jekyl and Mr. Hyde' argument.
To the clerk or other citizen who is
today living upon a fixed salary,
which may or may not have been In
creased during the last five or ten
years, they point to the fact that the
necessaries of life have increased in
price and that he can not buy as
much today with his forty, fifty or
sixty-dollar salary as he could under
Democratic low prices and hard
"This argument will fool thous
ands and tens of thousands of peo
ple in this State, and In every State
in Jhe Union, because the Democratic
speakers and campaign managers
will not call to their attention the
fact that under the Democratic ad
ministrtion of low prices and hard
times that this class of people, to
gether with all others who desired
honest work, were seeking employ
ment under Cleveland's administra
tion and could not find it
"While this specious argument is
being made to one class of our peo
ple, just the opposite argument is
being made to the farmers and a
certain class of other wealth pro
ducers. , To them the - Democratic
speakers and . campaign literature
say, 'It Is true that you are receiv
ing higher prices for your products
and labor than ever before, bat yon
overlook the fact that yon are re
quired to pay more for what you
buy than ever before, and that the
trusts and combines are robbing yon
of a part of your honest earned toil.'
"This is not all. "They are adding
the further false argument that even
of what you produce to sell brings
higher prices now than ever before,
and that you are thereby more pros
perous than ever before, that you do
not owe any ; allegiance or credit ; to
the Republican party for bringing
