"SALADA" Green or Mixed m BKALED LKA1> PACKBTt OH Major Schoof of Alberta Rang- ers Throws Some Sidelights Mexico on The Portland Oregonian of May 9 has the following very interesting in- terview with Schoof, the giant of tlie Alberta-Rangers, who has been close to the Mexican rebels during their winter campaign: That the United Stales, will assur- ed have war 'with the Mexican, rebe'is if they attempt to force the restora- tion of the vast estates which Villa has divided among his soldiers, is the opinion of Sergeant-AlaJor Guetav H. Schoof, of the 23rd Alberta Rangers, ivho Is returning from the Mexican frontier to take part in 'the military manoeuvres at Calgary on June 10. Major Schoof.served five months un- der .President Madero, and is uerson- ally acquainted with Villa and Iluer- ta. Carraiiza, he says, has offered him' a commission in the Mexican army. "The South American mediators made a mistake when they eliminated Carranza from their said Major School'. "The rebels arc the prime factor in tlie Mexican situ- ation. They refused to stop military operations because they cannot afford to-keen their armies standing in the field. 'Tho Mexican rebels are almost penniless. With them it is a case of now or not at all. Rebels Are Fighting Men "The rebels of Northern Mexico are fighting men. They will not give up their to the United States or to any nation in tlie world. In case war broke out about the restoration of the Terazxas, Creel or Gonzales os- tates, Twill Join the, rebels-in fight- any nation in the world. "While under Madero I fought in CuernaVaca. I had We with tho Canadian governmut ab- out that. Of course, as an officer of the Canadian government, I was not supposed to take part in the Mexican troubles, but they had ns surrounded. It Was a case of fight or hang. So I fought. am personally acquainted with ooth Villa aitd J-Iuerta. Huerta is a great soldier and a born. diplomat. But he is also a drunkard and a gambler. When tho gambler's pas- sion is on. him he will do anything for money. He is a tool in the hands of the plutocrats. "Villa reminds mo of Colonel Roose- velt. Of course, he lacks Roosevelt's polish, but they are- of the same type. are born fighters. Villa a terrible temper, He tries, to control it, but twelve years' life ai an outlaw' 'with a price upon His.'head did not sweeten his disposition. "The Scotchman Ben ton was the cause of liis own 'death. I knew Ben- ton, too. He was one of the most ar- rogant men on the Mexican-.border. Benton rode cainp, where he was told general was busy and could not see him immediately. Benton pushed .past the guards and rushed into Villa's private quarters. A'iHa told' him that he could not die- cues the matter'then, and asked him to retire. Benton leaned' over hla desk, and .hissed, "HI stay here till hell freezes over J go without pay for my stolen cattle." Villa con- trolled his temper'' and ordered the guards to put Benton out of his quart- ers. There 'was" a struggle and Ben- ton wus practically cut to pieces. He was shot, too, but moat of the fighting was done with kalvea'. Villa's mistake was in not telling the whole truth about the affair..; "I have seen Mexican rebele build a fire on a strip 'of sheet iron In the middle of a floor in a fine residence. They do not like slaves.. Neither will they sleep in a bed.' They take their blankets and roll up in-.a corner. I saw a group of soldiers. Catering; their horses in a ?500-batlitub from some Mexican "woman's boudoir. T-hey thought it was a great joXe. VyTien they camp in some-fine country home they may break up the piano for fire- wood or they may pound it and sing all night. Armies Armed "Both the arnilee are supplied with French artillery of the .latest type. At Ojinaga I saw one shell disable fifteen men. It was well aimed, and struck in'a, little depression where a. group had collected. "I read 'by a United States senator In which he maintain- ed that it made "no difference wheth- er Huerta fired t'wenty-ojie guns or six. That senator belongs In a laun- dry. He is unfit to represent his country. It IB a formality recognized by all nations. A ealute of twenty- one guns means an apology. A salute witli six guns means so muh powder wasted, and nothing more. Huerta's offer was like sending a to apologize to a man after you Jtad slapped his face." MACLEOD HAH WASACQUITTED JACK GRAHAM, ACCUSED Of SERIOUS CRIME OF HORSE STEALING, FREE Macleod ranchths...... JJ Mccleod, Alta., May going through tlie formality of calling the accuied to the box to give evid- fcncev pudge McNeil Yesterday pc- quittod Jack Graham, the well-known local rancher, who had been suspect- ed of home-stealing. The evidence of wltneBBeb called by the Crown was to the effect that tile horse In Question was included In a bunch of 54 head by Graham to Ham Faustein, but while bringing the horses to town they got mixed up with other horses, and it was suggested by the defence that the troublesome ieaEt had been carried along ty mistake. Stewart Mulr of.Pearce, tho owners of the animal, both said they did not think Graham was guilty of stealing the animal, as_ ho had al- ways been a good neighbor, and only a tew days before the horse 'was miss- ed had informed them that the horse was on his place. In discharging Graham, the judge said it was absolutely Inconceivable to him that the accused should steal the horse, after informing the own- ers of its whereabouts, and 3ie also drew attention to the fact that the hair covering the brand was so long that it had to be clipped to allow of identification. PRESENTATION BY NEW JAPANESE POLICY Toldo, May national defences will be strengthened ac- cording to the policy the new cab- inet. Commercial development also be part of tlie program. Saturday evening 'the officers and members of the Knights of Pythias assembled in their hall for the pur- pose oi taking a farewell of their chancellor commander, Bro. Allen E. Morris, who left on yesterday morn- Ing's train for Nelson, B. G. Bro. S. Shover occupied the chair, and tho forepart of the program was taken, up by" all present partaking of a sumptuous supper, after which speeches were delivered by the breth- ren. The chairman then called upon Bro. J. E. Clarke to make the pre- sentation, which was in the form of an illuminated address framed with the emblematic frame ot the K. of P. order. In making the presentation, Bro. Clarke touched upon Bro. Mor- ris1 career, as a Knight of Pythias, stating that in whatever manner tbey wished to manifest their appreciation for the time and energy he had de- voted to the interest of Pythianism in this city, it would be inadequate, as a reward for his labors, hut nev- ertheless the Rift that they wished to bestow upon him on this occasion, would at least repay him. in part the debt of gratitude they owed him. In reply, Bro. Morris stated that while he could not find words to give vent to his feelings, he at least felt amply rewarded in knowing that while lie was in1 our midst, his sole aim was to exemplify the principles of the order and strive to live up to same, and al though circumstances caused his departure from our midst, he time passed, review his sojourn among us, with kind recollec- tions for the days he spent in-Leth- hridge Lodge No. 2, Knights of Py- thias, The affair wns brought to a close by the singing of Auld Lang Syne.

OIL SIILL COMING IN I ILL Calgary, Alta., May halev at the Dlngman Well Mo. 1 near Black Diamond is still bringing up the- gasoline oil from the deep well this morning without any apparent diminution in the flow. A big motor truck load of iron gasoline tanks or drums containing 40 galloiig, about fifty tents on the truck, was sent out to the well yesterday afternoon and these are being filled today by the baler. The drums that were fill- ed yesterday were brought into the city nnd stored. Meanwhile, the di- rectors are discussing plans for stor- age tanks to hold the precious fluid which is almost pure gasoline. Excitement over the oil situation in the city continues to grow, and policemen are needed at the doors of the various agencies selling stock in the oil companies to hold the crowds in, line. it js estimated that more than half a million dollars has already been put into stock of the various com- panies drilling or about to drill and the (ietelopmcut work will now go forward with feverish activity. Mean- while other companies are organizing on Yarious leases that have been held since, last October and the whole country within' a radius of forty or fifty miles from Calgary will he spot- ted with prospecting oil wells within .the next three or four months. Among the companies that did a record breaking business in selling stock yesterday was one whoch pro- to drill on a fraction directly adjacent to the Dingman discovery well, being about feet west of that well. This near location brought the people in by thousands and the company has already laid in sufficient funds to carry on its prospecting work for a long time to come, if necessarv.
