By the Associated Pre#*  EL PASO, Texas, July 4.—Yaqui Indian depredations in the Mexican border states are becoming more frequent, but not all acts of banditry in the Yaqui country can be I laid at the doors of the Indians, according to advices reaching here from Sonora. “It Is a case of giving a dog a bad name and hanging him.*' an American reported who is familiar with the marauding activities of the Yaquis.  It is the custom in Sonora, he said, for Mexicans to shout “Yaqui,” whenever a foreigner has been killed a isolated territory, or whenever a flagrant violation of Mexican law has been committed anywhere in the section where! Yaquis may be found. This is supposed to impress the visitor with the idea that real Mexican bandrity exists largely in the imag-  I  libations of outsiders. Hence, the . Yaui is blamed for violen^ acts Yaquis is blamed for violent acts Yaqui and Mexican bandit bands i are both active and it ie said to be impossible to tell which is guilty of various reported raids, robberies and murder*.  By th** Associated Pre**  DEADWOOD, S. D., July 4.— Within sight of the country over which Theodore Roosevelt as a young man ranged his cattle and huifteci wild game and just above the trails he followed while a visitor in this district, a mountain— one of the most lofty peaks in the Black Hill*-—today became Mount Theodore Roosevelt, in honor of the former president of the United States, “The Great American.” Two tablets were unveiled.  To witness the ceremony thousands of Americans from all parts of the country came to Deadwood. Governor Norbeck of South Dakota presided at the ceremonies on the summit of the mountain, and Major General leonard Wood, was the orator of the day. The arrangements were under the direction of the Society of the Black Hills Pioneers. of which Colonel Roosevelt was one of the two honorary members.  The movement to provide the memorial had its inception at a meeting cf the Society of Black Hills Pioneers last January, when a suggestion of Captain Seth Bullock a plan to change the name of  ’ Sheep Mountain to that of Mount Theodore Roosevelt was adopted.  Sheep Mountain, one of the highest peaks in the Black Hills and the highest detached peak in the chain of mountains so designated, lies three miles front Deadwood. It is accessible to its summit by a broad highway, suitable for teams or automobiles, w'hile several trails, safe and convenient for horsemen or persons on foot lead to the top of the mountain. From its summit, the neighboring states of Wyoming and Montana are visible, j The    view' from the    top is    unsurpassed    for beauty in    this section    of  the c6untry.  The city of Deadwood is bearing the expense entailed by erection on the summit of tho mountain of a round tower on which will be placed the bronze tablet bearing the legends telling a* part of the life of Theodore Roosevelt and his contribution to Americanism. One of the tablets bears the following inscription:  In Memory of Theodore Roosevelt The American.  October 27,    1858,  January 6,    1919.  Society or Black Hills Pioneers July 4. 1919.  The other tablet pays a tribute to the services rendered by Colonel Roosevelt to his country.  BE IN FRONT <I>F NEWS BUILDING TO WATCH RETURNS FIU m WI LUA KD-DfiMP-SKf (CONTEST.

' Dennis, commercial attach# of the United States embassy here, who has Just returned from the island i after making an exhaustive stu df into the trade possibilities of it.  “Sardinians present a living picture of the remote past which has been sterotyped and handed down from antiquity,” said Dr. Dennis to The Associated Press correspondent. “Water-wheels with earthen buckets. "wooden plough© drawn by oxen, the scythe and sickle still In use in reaping vast fields—nomadic occupations unchanged since the days of the Avran dispersion—tribal costumes as gay and grotesque as the trappings of the medieval pageant— mil reproduce in the veriest slmill-j tude the archaic life of bygone Ages.”  TODAY  The stores at Ada are closed.

DIRIGIBLE HAS  By the Associated Pre©*  ROME, June 2.— (By Mail)—Already German influence ha* been exercising itself in Italy in an endeavor to win back it© . pre-war trade, which annually amounted to nearly two hundred million dollars —exports and imports.  Interviews have recently been published in Italian papers which endeavor to establish the idea in the Italian mind that had Germany been consulted in the matter of Italian claims at the peace conference, Italy would have secured all that had been asked. This has been interpreted by many prominent Italians as purely a subtle bid  # for Italian patronage anticipating the resuscitation of friendly commercial relations between Italy and Germany.  Chief among the interviews appearing iff Italy were those of Prince Von Buelow and Count Von Bernstorff. The former was married to an Italian and ’maintains in Italy one of the most dblebrated villas. Italians contend that it w’as his object to solicit Italian favor when he said:  “Flume is an tlalian town and must go to Italy. All its inhabitants are Italian except a small minority. Everything in Fiume is Italian. In fact, most Hungarians living in Fiume are more favora  ble to Italian than to Jugo-Slav rule.”  Count Von Bernftorff seeks in his interview intended for the Italian people to forgive Italy for allying herself with Germany’s enemies. He admits that had the ancient German despotic rule won, Italy would have never been forgiven but that the new r  Germany is ready to forget the past and start over again.  His interview given to the Gior-nale d’ Italia recently has been treated in the same light as that of Prince Von Buelow while Italians are saying of it, “we prefer to trust in victory than alternatives.”  Count Bernstorff failed to arouse any great enthusiasm among the Italians for the proffered forgiveness.  But the Germans have not been asleep in Italy. Already German goods are finding their way into the Italian markets. A Milan newspaper recently announced that a large shipment of German jewelry had been received at the frontier destined for all parts of Italy. German printing products, tourist guidebooks and stationery have been on display in shop windows for weeks. Some of them were pre-war stock but by far the greater part is new.

Norris yesterday afternoon and took up the question of a Rescue Home for Ada.  Rev. S. B. Damron made the principal talk at the meeting. He ex-* plained that there Is now no home of this character in Oklahoma and that one is badly needed.  The object of the proposed home is to take care of fallen girls. It will be optional with the girls whether they enter or not. Many women who fall into lives of shame desire to reform and this home will give them the opportunity. It will be on the order of the Crittenden homes.  Rev. Damron was given authority to secure an option ob property to be used for the home. When he has found a suitable location, another meeting will be held and officers and directors elected. The ministers of all the churches of Ada will then get busy to help raise the necessary fund# to take tar© of the home.

By the Associated Press  TO KIO.—(By    mail.)—Reports  that American missionaries incited the Korean insurrection are quite incorrect, according to a statement of K. Yoshizaw r a, counsellor of the Japanses foreign office, who has returned after an investigation of the situation in Korea.  Speaking to Japanese newspaper men Mr. Yoshizawa expressed the view that the disturbances were the outcome of a collision between the old-fashioned thought of the Ten-dokyo cult and the modern thought produced by the influence of Christianity. Mr. Yoshizawa continued: “A lack of perfect understanding between Japanese and Koreans is one of the main causes of the disturbances, but the principal cause that led to the uprising is the discontent and complaint in the mind of the Koreans, which suddenly burst out, prompted by the new born thought kindled by the principle of self-determination. The simple and childish political thoughts of the Korean people can be well imagined from the fact that a large . number of Koreans came to the j government general at Seoul at the I time of the disturbance in March and April and inquired of the officials about the truth of the alleged independence of Korea.  “How to save the future of Korea and Koreans is a grave question that seriously taxes the brain of the Japanese government.”  It will pay >011 to watch Want Ad columns of the News.  the  AIRPLANES MUST KKKP  AWAY FROM DI RIG IIILHS I  By the A»«o«'li»ted I’rena  MIKOLA, N. Y., July 4.—All aviators today were forbidden to fly above or within one mile of R-R4 the British dirigible, upon its approach to Miieola. TYi# naval authorities sent this warning to Montauk, Rockaway Beach and Chatham where seaplanes are stationed to guard against any possible mishap to the big blad.  MRS. CORRELL AND SON ADA FAILS TO CET  mm  WEATHER FOilECAJMP.  Partly cloudy is th© weather forecast for tomorrow.  START FOR HOME  Mrs. John W. Correll and her son, Joe, who were badly treated by Mexican bandits near Tampioo on June 16, were still in* Tampico a few days ago, according to a letter received yesterday by Mrs. B. F. Mc-Caulay of Ada, a daughter of Mrs. Correll. The letter stated that the two would start for home as soon as arrangements could be made for their departure.  Telegrams received from tire state department at New York indicate that efforts are being made to run down the facts. The Mexican government may be called to account for the dpath and such crominal treatment of American cltiaens.  Mrs. McCauley this morning received the following telegram from C. F. Carter of the National As-(Continued on Page Five.)  PRESIDING EIDER  S  Rev. W. M. Crutchfield and J. A.  Smith returned this mojning from Madill where they went to try to get the presiding elder of 'the Methodist church located at Ada.  When the committee met the proposition of Ada waa put before them and Durant, which town has this church officer at present, offered to give $500 more than was offered by Ada. The representatives from Durant also told the committee that no matter how much Ada increased her offer they would kv-creas© in proportion so there was nothing for Ada to do but lose th# P. E.  Mrs. McKee of Fitzhugh entered the hospital yesterday and underwent an operation. She is recovering very satisfactorily.  LOCAL POSTOEEICE NEEDS MORE CARRIERS  A News reporter called at the postoffice this week in answer to a request from several business men to investigate the small force allowed Ada in handling the mail in the business and residence districts. At the postoffice they told the reporter that this week two of their regular carriers were off on va-f cation and it was necessary to put on four subs in order to handle tho mail. And even then it looked to the reporter as if there were enough mail undelivered to keep one mail busy several days.  The fault is uot with the manage-I ment of the postoffice. It would I be impossible to find a postoffice I that gives better service than tho j Ada office considering the number of men allowed for the work. There are only two carriers allowed for i mail delivery in the city of Ada j with one other man for parcel deliv-j ery, this man helping mail delivery in the business section part of the day. It doesn’t require any knowledge of the mail service to see that j this force is far insufficient.  ’ The mgil route© in Ada have not I been changed by a single street fcince the service was inaugurated eight years ago. There are whole blocks of houses, right in the middle of town with no street delivers because the local authorities ha\re no power to change the routes, and the carriers have more than they can do besides. In addition to this there is the w r hole of the Sunrise addition with no mail delivery and the people over there are very dissatisfied with these conditions.  What is needed is at least two more residence carriers and one carrier to work In the business district exclusively. This would give the people In the unserved districts two deliveries daily and would give constant delivery In the business section which is very much needed.  The chamber of commerce is to take this matter up with the authorities at Washington at one# and get the added help which the local postoffice must have. Congressman McKeown will likely be appealed to and it is expected th© additional carriers will be put on before the summer months are ended.  Let A Want Ad Get It tor you.
