Although the principal reason for calling the legislators together is
for the appropriation of funds to meet the cost of maintains state troops

The Orlando Sentinel gives the
following interesting report of the
experience and opinion of a gentle-;
man who has just returned from
Mexico to Orlando: i
That Huerta i3 doomed and the
United States is destined to straight-'
en out affairs in Mexico was the gist!
of a statement made last night to a;
reporter for the Sentinel by Mr.
John W. McDonald, who has just
reached Orlando from Tampico. The
McDonalds lived in Orlando form-'
erly, going from here to Mexico,!
where they have resided for the pastj
thirteen years. Mr. McDonald is en-
gaged in the citrus fruit Industry in
Mexico, his grore being five miles
out from Tampico.
The business is much more profit profitable
able profitable there than it is in Florida, he
said. There are many factors that
operate to make it so. The labor is ;
cheaper, it is not necessary to use j
any fertilizer, irrigation is unneces-j
sary and prices are higher. Oranges
were selling at sixty dollars a thou thousand
sand thousand a short time before he left
American Flag Held in Contempt
Speaking of the unsettled political
conditions In that country, Mr. Mc
Donald said: "The American flag
was absolutely no good in Tampico,
when I left.. We came out under!
the German flag. The American flag
was not respected."
"I expect my place to be raided
and everything of value stolen and j
the buildings burned," said Mr. Mc
Donald, rather ruefully. "I left the
place in charge of peons, but there
will be no protection for it, I fear."
Mr. McDonald said he had faith
that President Wilson would bring
order in Mexico yet; he has faith In
the wisdom of the president. Huerta,
he says, is discredited by nearly
everyone, though all agree that, he
has the courage of a bull dog.
For the first time in many years,
the Ocala House is entirely closed to
guests, and its familiar front, which
has looked out on the square for
over a quarter of a century, is so
torn to pieces that its friends hard hardly
ly hardly know It. Tearing away the sup supports
ports supports of the veranda show that they
are somewhat dilapidated, and
would not have lasted much longer;
but they had bcen in place a good,
long time, as men's lives go. Much
history has been made since they
were put in, and many of the lead leading

some other states, have looked out
at the square between them. The

Crushing Defeat of Mexicans Who
Tried to Stop American March
on their Capital
Albert Payson Terhune in the
New York World tells as follows of
the first victory won by the Amer American
ican American army under Scott in their
march from Vera Cruz to the city of
Scott, had seized the Key to Mex Mexico"
ico" Mexico" by capturing Vera Cruz. It
now remained for him to use the
key to open the door in other
words, to strike westward through to
the heart of Mexico and attack the
capital 250 miles away.
He set out along the National road
upon the perilous march. And the
Mexicans prepared to dispute every
step of the way. Santa Ana, sound soundly
ly soundly trounced by Zachary Taylor at
Buena Vista, collected 1 2,0 00 men
from bis shattered 'army and march marched
ed marched at top speed to intercept Scott on
the journey to Mexico City.
-The .Mexican leader chose as his
first stand the mountain pass of
Cerro Gordo, on the National road,
about forty miles northwest of .Vera
Cruz. It was in a wild stretch of
hill country and seemed an ideal
spot for defense. In a canyon on
one side of the pass ran a deep riv
er. On the other side rose a cliff
like hill 1,000 feet High, honey
combed with fortifications and top topped
ped topped by the grim Cerro Gordo fort
ress. Here with bis 12,000 men
Santa Ana lay waiting for Scott. The
latter was marching toward the pass
with an army of 8,500.
The American advance guard, un under
der under General Twigg. reached Cerro
Gordo on April 13, 1847. The main
army came up on the 1 4th. Scott
spent the next, four days in arrang
ing his plan for attacking this seem
ingly impregnable position. 'It was
a splendid plan and one that worked
out to perfection in every detail.
Santa Ana was equally busy doping
these four days in strengthening his
; iScott ordered a general assault
upon Cerro Gordo on April 18. And
at once it was seen bow foolish Santa
Ana "had been in choosing such a
spot for defense. For the ground
was too steep for the Mexican caval cavalry
ry cavalry -by far the best branch, of Santa
Ana's army- to manoeuvre. :v,And
the broken and wooded nature of the
hills afforded 'fine cover for the Am
ericans. Protected by rocks and
trees, they were often able to ad
vance, uninjured, up to the very
muzzles of Mexican battery guns.
IScott stormed Santa Ana;s de
fenses one after another, in a few
hours driving the enemy in pajnte
from the last of their forts. The
cavalry, which should bave protect
ed the Mexican retreat, were the first
to run a way. Cerro Gordo Castle
was seized Gen. Velasquez, its com commander,
mander, commander, being killed and its de defenders
fenders defenders rushed pell-mell down the
far side of the hill.
Of the army of 112,000 Mexicans,
8,000 escaped with Santa Ana; 1,000
were killed or wounded and 3,000
were captured and released : on pa
role. The American loss in killed
and wounded was 431. Scott cap
tured, moreover, forty-three big
bronze cannon that had been im
ported from Spain, 5,000 stands of
arms and several wagon trains laden
with munitions of war.
