Epernay, France, April 14 Despite

out the night at almost every village hi
the champagne district, rioting broke
out anew today and the flame of anger
and vengeance continue to sweep" the
grape-growing region. :
At Vinay the rioters haatily threw up
barricades with barrels, cases and de

another group of manifestants armed
with torches entered the vast- cham
pagne they copld find, wrecked the wine

Women were foremost in the work of
destruction, chanting snatches of revo

Wh-n the troops reached Vina the wo
men lay down on the roads and defied
the cavalry to ride over them. Eventu
ally the troops succeeded in getting con
trol of the situation and dispersed the
manifestants. : : : ; !
At dawn many places in the wine
growing district showed the horizon
darkened by the smoking ruins of wine
depots burned during the night. At the
same time exploding detonators sum

of resuming their march of destruction.
Reinforcements of troops are arriv

REAL GOVERN
irais
Democratic Plaits To Lessen Ex-
penditureS Over f 2,000,000
Annually.
Washington, April 16 The chairmen
of the nine committees on expenditure
in the nine department of the Govern
ment have asked Speaker Clark to pre
side over a meeting they will hold. It
is the purpose of the Democratic Con
gressmen to make retrenchments' that
will save the Government about $2 500,
000 annually.
''We are going about this thing in a
buBinesslike way," said Chairman Helm
of Kentucky. ' "By lopping off useless
officials at the Capitol and at the House
office building we will curtail the run
ning expanses of the House about 30
per cent. We think we can do as well
in the departments. It is dead timber
that we are after."
The Democrats on the committees
will form themselves into workihg
groups. The advice of Speaker Clark
and Mr. Underwood is desired. If the
Democrats- find what they think they
will find, they will use the information
gained for campaign purposes, If nec-
cessary, the committees will sit all sum
mer, regardless of when Congress ad
journs. -
Democratic ltadors are anxious to
have this inform- m at hand when the
real work of rev isin : the tariff is taken
up. It is their I. op t to be able to off
set the loss in revenues through tariff
reductions by the saving made in the
operation of the Governments vast ma
chinery.
A Resourceful Cadger.
An EugllHh artist while painting a
sea piece discovered a bndger's lnlr and
thought to play tbe animal a practical
Joke. Gathering together a bundle or
grass and weeds, he placed it Inside
tbe mouth of the bole and, Igniting it
with a match, waited for the ignomini
ous flight of the astonished household
er. But Master Badger was a resource
ful animal and not disposed to be
made a butt of practical jokers. He
came up .from the depths of bis hole
as soon as the penetrating smoke told
him that there was a fire on tbe prem
ises and deliberately scratched earth
on tbe burning grass with bis strong
claws until all danger was past. No
human being could have grasped the
situation more quickly or displayed
greater skill in dealing with an un
familiar event.
Building a Reputation.
Young physicians in the smaller
towns have nn Idea that appearing
very busy will help them greatly In
starting a practice. Tbe following Is
told by a now prominent Kentucky
physician. He had a call tbe after
noon following the banging out of his
shingle and started through town in
his buggy at terrific speed. A police
man stopped the enterprising physi
cian.. "Doctor," be said, "it is against the
city ordinance to drive nt the speed
you are going. You must accompany
too to the Judge and pay your fine."
"What Is tho finer' inquired tne
doctor.
"Five dollars."
The doctor's hand flew to his pocket
"Here's $10. 1 have to come back Just
as fast as 1 am going." Success Maga

TO DEFEND
Agua Frieta. Captured Town
pected to be Scene of Severe
Fighting.
. .
Agua Prieta, Mexico, April 15th. In
full possession of six hundred armed
rebels tonight Agua Prieta is to be
made tho headquarters of rebel opera
tions in Sonora .
With "Red" Lopez and" his band
holding the town, following Its capture
the rebels are hurrying their troops to
ward this place, With their men all as
sembled, they expect to have a fighting
force of 1,600 with which they believe
they can successfully withstand any at
tack. The hardest fighting which the
Mexican rebellion has afforded to date
is expected to take place almost from
hour to hour in Agua Prieta. ;
The arrival of Garcia's command, ri
ding at top speed across the plains and
raising great clouds of dust, together
with the firing of shots by a detachment
of rebel scouts sent out to intercept
them, led to the belief that the expec
ted attack by the Federals was on.
Both Agua Prieta and Douglas were
thrown into a fever of excitement . In
Agua Prieta the rebels made ready to
resist an attack and in Douglas the cit
izens, remembering previous disastrous
occurrences sought places of safety.
The apprehension was lessened, a lit
tle by the knowledge that the approach
ing band were rebel reinforcements

Washington, April IS, Mexican in- .

site Douglas, K:-:i.:X'Su-- :''S.
According to the telegram received
two American non-combatants were
killed while on United States soil. Both
were railrod men engaged in theirduty..'
The Mexican Federal soldiers who fired
across the frontier when the battle be
gan to go against them, were disarmed
by the United States troops and are
held prisoners in Douglas.
The report aai 1 a force of 250 insur-
rectors boarded a special passenger
train at Fronteras, south of Agua Pri
eta. On arriving at Agua Prieta they
began shooting in all directions, Their
lire was returned by a force of sixty
soldiers composed of Federal troops !
and National guardsmen. The fighting
lasted two hours. Twelve rebels: were
killed and sixteen wounded, The less
on the Mexican Federal side was about
the same.,;.'
The dispatch received at the War De
partment makes no mention of any
American soldiers crossing the line into
Mexico, General Wood directed in his
telegram that, the commanding officer
inform him specifically upon that point.
Grave complications are feared if it in
found that any American soldiers inva
ded Mexican territory.
Army officers of tbe War Department
discredited the report that American
soldiers had crossed the Mexican fron
tier. Most specific instructions have
been given all officers commanding U.
S. troops along the border to the effect
that they must not under any circurr -stances
cros over into Mexico without
oulnrs from Washington.
