Some of the Mexicans stirred up another 'lemonetratlon while he was In jail and he learned he was t o be shot, but again hl« peon friends were threatening nnd lie was released on his word that he would not leave the city His house guard wae badly beat-- en by tile enemies and Anally the lo­ cal presWente orde-ed him to go t o Jliiullpan, saying he must leave the country and that Ills passport could only be had a t that town He wae in fur mod that lie would have an es­ cort furnished, but that ho must make tho horseback rldo of forty miles un­ armed. Tho trip was a ruse, Cie learned from a friendly peon, who was one of bis guard and the plan was t o have one of tho escort shoot him in the back when he got a co'tain dis­ tance ahead of fciem on the pretext that lie was escaping The peon told him to stick close to his elde and in that way he -eached his destination 3afel? He was thrown to Jail at Jiquilpan chargod wiUi being a spy for the Americans because he had received two business telegrams an<l had sent one Five days he was kept In a cell without bed or food except that which he, bought himself and although friendly peone of the town wanted to give bill a bed and food the auth- ritlea would not allow It. On tho fifth day M-s. Jerolamon, accompanied by her Mexican servant, rode across tlie forty nillee of wild country on horseback, to Join Slim. She succeeded in getting him a bed. In tlie meantime his partner in bus­ iness, an Rnglishman, Charles H. Forbes Morrison, had telegraphed to the British Consul. Percy Holmee, at Guavalajara, and at Mr. Holmes' in­ stance in conjunction with Uve Brit­ ish Ambassador, Mr. Jerolamon was turned loose. The British officials warned him then Uiat he was a n.arked man and if he valued his life he had better leave the country. Without runds but with his wife and child, he hurriedly left Jiquilpan, net daring to roturn to his iome, nn'l rode horseback to the coast taking shfp at Manzonillo. He was told he might escape all trouble, while he was in jail, if be would swear allegiance to Mexico, but h e refused. Mr. Jerolamon says the unrest in the country is not due t o tZie larger, part of the populace or the peons but to, those who can make capital out of war . He says the rebels are. having* the time of their Uvea and. •wilt'not attempt Co settle mattera; have a uniform, a horse, gun and the power to take what they want with­ out danger except for ttie slight personal risk tCiey run if the other fellow is a little quicker with his gun c As an instance of the lack of sym­ pathy with the war measures he says when the Americans were taking Vera C\uz and Mexicao volunteers were called for in his eection only 1B1 persons responded and when two <i.ivs later a train ran tlirougCi seven •towns to get the volunteer aoldiers, not one responded Some were sick, <ome had sickness In their families r ul others juet went into the woods and hid until the train was gone 'BECKY\ EDELSON TAKES FOOD IN TABLOID FORM.
