J. Cunningham. which was given this afternoon. About seventy supervisors are in attendance but their number was augmented this afternoon by citizens of the city and county at large anxious to hear the Commissioner at the time of his first public appearance in Warren. The morning's session was devoted to three addresses which were made by H. N. Keist. the County Farm Agent. H. V. Hazeltine of tiie Chamber of Commerce, and W. A. Wynn. of Harrisburg. formerly the district suj perintendent for the Highway Deipartment in Warren. Mr. Cunningham said in part this i afternoon: "I deem it a SJ'eat privilege to be with you today. I was particularly interested in your meeting this morning. It showed that the supervisors of Warren County at least are alive to the situation for better reads in Pennsylvania. "The Governor, when he appointed me, did so realizing I was neither an engineer nor a road builder. The governor is one of the greatest good road enthusiasts in the state. He believes it is more a business problem, the conduct of the State Highway Department. Good engineers are necessary, but business methods of the right kind are more necessary. "Last fall I was requested by the Governor to attend as many meetings ot" the township supervisors in the as possible. I am doing so. and seeking to find out close at hand what your needs are. "The road proposition is one of the most vital before the public today. Xo longer is the public satisfied to have roads in fairly good condition for a period of seven or eight months a year. They want them good twelve months in the year.

Koiicher left Tidioute this morning with tiie better part ot" in his pockets, bound for iS'ew York. About S.SO this morning Chief Haag received word over the telephone from Tidioute. that a man had taken money and was trying to leave the place on the morning train. There has been nc time to sweatout a warrant but a man had been sent along on 'tiie train who would point out the escaping person. The Chief of Police had no difficulty in finding Koticher. He had changed trains in Irvine. but that was nothingagainst him ;is he was bound to Xew York. .ir.d would have ciinnged'here anyway. Koticher takt'ii to the police station and toid his story there. He stated that he is employed by the Uoyal Manicure Couipsuiy, a branch the Tidionto Cutlery, of which. Harry Baldwin is manager. He originally haju-d iro-n Xew York, and n family tiiore.

On March 7 He was advanced and yesterday he was given TROOPSREADYTO STARTPURSUIT Sufficient Force Is Now On the Border Says General Funston Lack of Cars Hinders the Movement of Troops DENIAL MADE THAT OUR TROOPS HAVE ALREADY CROSSED BORDER Practically the Entire United States Army Will Be Put at the Disposal of General Pershing for Campaign San Antonio. Texas. March 14. _ A sufficient force is now gathered at the Mexican border under the command of Brigadier General John J. Pershing to begin the pursuit of Francisco Villa, it was announced last night by Major General Frederick Funston. The general said that only the completion of plans for backing up the expeditionary force now was needed.. He was non-committal, however, as to the time necessary to accomplish this. General Funston declared reports th.it American troops had been ordered to cross the border in pursuit of Villa were untrue. Reiterating previous statements, he said it would be useless to send anything but a strong, well-prepared force into Mexico. That the force will be a strong one was indicated by a statement of the general tnat when expedition was organized, there would be only six or eight regiments other lhan those on the border, left in the United States. This did not take into account the troops in the Canal zone and the Philippines. Outside of mentioning two or three scattered movements the general refused to give any definite idea of the size OL the expedition. He said the Twenty-third infantry stationed at Galveston was expected to leave for the west, that part of the First cavalry had left San Francisco for the east, and would pick up the rest of the detail at San Diego, and that the second squadron of the Twelftu cavalry at Fort Robinson, Neb., had besjn ordered to start, but was being delayed by lack of rolling stock. To General Pershing will be left the final disposition of the expeditionary forces. Orders will be issued for the iorward movement by General Funston at Fort Sam Houston, but the hour when they will be executed will be decided bv tiie general in the field. The expeditionary force into Mexico is to.be equipped with a complete motor supply train, an innovation in the United States army, it was announced. The motor train carrying supplies will have an important bearing on the expedition's success. General Funston declares. Two hundred horses also are to be purchased at once to complete the cavalry quota of mounts. it became known that lack of ing stock, particularly in Arizona and j Xew Mexico, has hindered troop I transportation.
