, ' MEXICO CITY, June 27.—General Per-
Lhing's reported evacuation of San Geronimo and
Bachiniba arouses the hope among the Mexicans
(that President Wilson is preparing to withdraw
Jthe entire expedition, as the war department gave
|no explanation in making public at Crevinos the
report of the evacuation.
Strong optimism persists among the Mexi-
can leaders despite the statements of the Ameri-
Ican newspapers that war is imminent. They are
■ counting the pressure of other Latin - American

Icial relations between South, Central America

IT IS BELIEVED
County,Attorney and Mrs. T. B.
Orr, newly weds, were accorded one
of the most cordial, hearty and en-
thusiastic receptions last evening by
more than five hundred people of
Lawton, friends of the bride and
groom, who were down to the Rock
uland station to see them arrive.
More than one hundred automobiles,
headed by the band were in the par-
ade, which formed at the station and
paraded all the down town streets, the
bride and groom being in Dr. J. L.
'^ewis' car, which had been decorated
in white for the occasion.
The demonstration of the esteem in
which this estimable young man and
his bride are held was one that will
not be repeated in I-awton for some
time, ss it was one of the biggest tri-
butes ever paid any couple any where.
Needless to say it was appreciated
deeply by the honorees—appreciated
more than any material gift could
1 possibly have been.
The following citizens composed
the committee which Uiok possession
of the bride and groom at the train,
and attended to the comfort of the
guests throughout the evening: Henry
