A HAPPY THOUGHT FOR EASTER: NO MATTER WHAT OUR BELIEF OR FAITH, WE MAY FIND IN NATURE TODAY EVIDENCE THAT US HOPE FOR THE FUTURE. THE SANDUSKY STAR-JOURNAL. FORTY-FOURTH YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, SATUROA Y, APRIL 15, 131 LAST EDITION BORDER SITUATION IS CRITICAL TODAY Another Battle Imminent And Invasion By American Troops May Result While England Has Landed Marines To Protect Prepares to Act. NUMBER 160 April since the order for the mobilization of (he troops in Texas has the Mexican situation been so serious as it is today. Repetition of the firing on American citizens at Douglas will he the signal for invasion by United States troops. Orders to this effect were today sent to the troops on the border land. The landing of English marines at San Qucntin is interpreted by the State department as a warning from England that unless the United Btates establishes peace in Mexico foreign powers will intervene. As a consequence ljiesident Taft has prepared to act the instant it may be- come necessarj, the war department working all last night to peifect pvass. The revolutionary junta today announced that forma] demand will at once be made on President Taft to recognize the Mexican insurgents as a revolutionary government with headquarters at Agua Prieta. This has been made possible by the capture of the latter place. THE WEATHER Forecast colder with frost. Sunday fair.

HERE'S SAMPLE OF WHAT TORNADO IN WEST LEFT ALONG ITS TRAIL RESULTS TO DA1E President Taft this afternoon ord ered tour additional troops of cavalry to the hordei at Douglas. The presi dent was told that the insurrectos at Agna Prieta now number and are thiowing tip entrenchments for the approaching battle. The war department announced to- day that another detachment of Ohio militia officers would be sent to the Mexican maneuver. In tbe second detachment, which will leave for the front soon, there will lie twelve Ohio militia officeis, including two majors and ten company officers. The list will comprise eight officers of infant- ry, one of cavalry, one of fleld artil- leiy, one of the engineering corps, and one medical officer. The selec- tions will be made by Adjutant Gen- and tbe officers will lemain hi amp two weeks. Urgent admonition to the Mexican government that it shall not select places as battle grounds which endan- ger the lives and property of American citipens, vvvis dispatched to Mexico City. A force of thirty men and a Maxim gun fron the British man of war Shearwater were landed at San Quen- tin, Mexico (o prottct that town against a threatened attack of insur- gents. The revolutionary movement, however, did not materialize and tbe Britishers and the gun were with- drawn. This. VRK first actual landing of foreign forces on Mexican soil in connection with the present revolu- tion was reported to the state depart- ment in a telegram from American Consul Schmucker at Ensenada. The telegram did not state just when the landing occurred. When all danger to San Queniin from the insurgents had passed the Shearwater sailed for En- spiiada, and her commander advised the American consul of the action ho had at San Quentin for the safe- ty of the town. San Quentin is a port of lyovver California about 125 miles south of Ensenada Arrangements are nearly complete. It is said at the state department, for Consul Schmticker to make the trip from Ensenada to Alamo to investi- gate the plight of the American wom- en and children who held prison- ers there. Through the state department the president notified the govern- ment that it must see to it in the fu- ture that no nich unfortunate inci- dent as that at Agua Prieta, when threo Americans were killed and elev- en wounded, be allowed to occur Through the war department and through the department of justice the president sent the same sort of warn- to? to the leader of the insurrectos at Agua Prieta.

Out Since Friday Morning, -12 Men Left Room Only For Meals, BULLETIN No agreement had been reached or report made by the jury in the Surrusca murder up to Saturday afternoon, The restlessness of the jurors was very apparent, a number of them spending most of the walking to and fro in the jury room. From the Adams street aide ot Vie court house, it was observed ,that the jurymen gathered around one man at frequent intervals, and talked earnestly to him. This scene raised the presumption that one or two of the jurymen were holding out against the majority. There are twelve tired men in the Kne county court house, sitting or sprawling on chairs, in an ef- fort to decide whether Joseph Snr- rnsca, in stabbing Anthony Storuce, was guiltj of first degree murder, sec- ond degree murder, manslaughter. assault and battery, or whether be should be allowed to step forth into .he bright spring day. a free man. Tuev were becoming quite weary of tl.ffv job Saturday morning, and vere glad when they were taken down o the West House about noon for dinner. And there was good reason or their being worn out, for they lad been in session ever since FniUy morning, unable to agree on a "erdict. Although outsiders have no access o the jury room, there was no doubt hat some of the talesmen were fast osing their tempers under the big train. Occasionally loud voices were leard. and then an abrupt silence for everal minutes, as If some one had "iven ni> the argument in disgust This jury did not ask for any ad- itional instructions from the court ither JMday or Saturday.
