A f T II 1.111 1 k-TFR MEXICO CITY FIGHTRESUivicU Armistice Broken When Madero Seeks to Improve Position AMERICANS NOW IN SAFETY resident Taft In Pursuance of Wi Plan to Be Ready For Invasion Has Arranged For Transport Service. The truce between Madero and Diaz, the contestants for control in 'Mexico City ended by mutual consent several hours be.'ore the time originally agree upon. Machine guns on the roof of tho arsenal at once began sweeping Sail Juan Plaza sou 111 of the Alameda, where the federals had been taking positions for a renewal of the assaults on the rebel fortress. There was little heavy gun firing, but General Hnerta had placed Max ima on the roofs of the tallest build ings In the neighborhood of San Juan market and was attempting to get into closer range with the arsenal. Later there were sortle3 from the arsenal and Feliolstas and Maderistas fought with the bayonet in the narrow Bt reels between the market and the citadel. The hand-to-hand fighting was .uiioub on the west side of the Plaza de San Juan. The ancient church of San Josede LoHiiaturulej was subjected to the in cessant volleys from the rebel guns and was damaged. l he American residents are safer today than at any time since the re volt began. Although the end of the truce came sooner than expected there was sullirient time for the American lmbnssailor to remove hundreds of his countrymen from the center of the ity to the Coiouo Hemaua and the Juarez. The diplomatic corps have not lost hope of bringing about peace, but the difficulties are admittedly enormous. Diaz insists that he will not cease firing on the palace until Madero and the government resign and until he lias received absolute guarantees that the Madero Influence is at an end. i he president, contemptuous of the action, hold. fast to his office support ed by General lluerta. The truce was broken when General Diaz found that the federals were dig ging entrenchments and advancing heavy guns. The rebel commander immediately turned his Maxims upon the .Maderistas, holding that the presi dent had violated the armistice. Nearly 500 Americans have left the city for Puebla. Trains have been running toward the gulf and the frontier with fair regularity, but few people have entered the city. The capital was almost gay on Sun. day for the first time since the re volt began. The armistice encouraged thousands back to the center of the ity. The shops were open, several of the larger markets received supplies rom the country and people were able to buy food and other necessaries. From dawn until afternoon the streets were crowded. There was feverish activity. Citizens staggered under burdens of food and clothing which they were removing to places of refuge. The well-to-do were able to obtain ca.'h from the banks and there was more money in circulation than had been seen In the city fop eight days. The greatest boon of all was the op. portunlty given to the Red and White Jross organizations and to volunteer sanitary organizations to remove such things as Imperilled health and were in a way to produce pestilence. For a week the sanitation has. bees indescribable. The forty acres of the Alameda were strewn with the bodies it hordes. The cavalry had used the ark for bivouacs and their position had drawn destructive shelling from .lie arsenal. In many of the principal streets bodies of soldiers and of citi zens had lain for days buried under wreckage of buildings. In San Juan de I.entran street twenty federals had been killed on Friday by the explosion of a shell In a warehouse, where the men were nunrtered. The volunteers, made up of Mexicans directed by Americans, Gpanish and German doctors, were able to remove many of these bodies and to lessen to some extent the peril of pestilence. Great heaps of garbage were burned In the streets and in the squares. Sani tation experts examined the water sup ply for the purpose of seeing if it had been contaminated. For seven days a city of 500,000 (iople had endured warfare which recognized none of the laws of cU'i llzed lighting. Six-inch field guns had dueled at a range of from four to twenty blocks, sweeping the finest streets of the city with their shells. Night and day the people were alarmed by the terrific roar of the can nonadlng and were driven from quarter to quarter as the zone of fight ing extended. All classes Buffered. Dozens of line residences were wrecked. Some of the most ornamental buildings of the capital will have to be rebuilt at enormous expense. A conservative estimate places the number of dead in the week's fighting at 1,000 and the number of wounded at more than l.iiOO. This Includes citizens and foreign residents as weU as soldiers. The Maderistas were by far the heaviest losers. Diaz 1oct croballv f.0 Ruined Part ot Mexico City; Destination of U, S. Ships i n a i n i 77 yuKzti a l n OA iuhk.il in r The tipper map shows location of the arsenal held by Diaz and his rebels and the American consulate, with the V. M. C. A. building, which was shot full of holes. The lower map shows Vera Cruz, Tamplco and other points where the United States battleships are due to arrive. killed and 200 wounded. The federal troops, because of their hopeless frontal attacks on the arsenal in the face of deadly machine gun Are, lost probably 600 killed and probably 1,000 in wounded. Army Transportation Arranged. Although at Uie siate and navy de partments the impression Is conveyed that the accounts of the fighting coming from the city of Mexico are wildly exaggerated, it became known that as early as last Thursday the government made overtures to the Southern Pacific company for the charter of two of the largest vessels of the Morgan line for the purpose of transporting troops from northern ports to gulf ports. At a meeting of the Southern Pacific directors in New Voik last Thursday the proposition made by the govern ment was discussed, and while it was not acted upon if the government wishes two vessels on a moment's notice as was requested, the vessels will be forthcoming. The government has offered the Southern Pacific $73,000 each for a month's charter of two of Its largest and most powerful vessels. The ves sels mentioned are the Comus and the Antilles, either of which would be capable of transporting about 2,200 troops on each trip and either vessel is capable of making the trip from New York to New Orleans In four days and to other gulf points in a little longer time, providing these points are nearer to the Mexican border. VETO FOR IMMIGRATION BILL Taft Cannot Accept Measure Because of Illiteracy Test Provision. President Taft vetoed the immigra tion bill, believing that the illiteracy test prescribed would not prove satis factory and would be objectionable. Senator Lodge, who has charge of the measure, announced that an effort would be made to pass It over the veto and there is a good chance of success. "I do this with great reluctance," said Taft. "The bill contains many valuable amendments to the present Immigration law which will insure greater certainty In excluding unde sirable Immigrants. But I cannot make up my mind to sign a bill which in Us chief provision violates a principle that ought In my opinion to be upheld in dealing with our immigration. I refer to the Illiteracy test." Allegheny Canal Bill Reported. Canalization of the Allegheny river from Lock No. 3 at Springdale, Pa., to Mahoning, sixty miles from Pitts burg, is given impetus by the action of the senate commerce committee, which reported the bill already passed by the house. As framed by the sea ate committee the measure carries a total of $4ti,572,9.18, which is $."i,700, 000 more than was appropriated by the house and $20,000,000 more than the appropriation of last year. BULGARS REPULSE TURKS two Attempted Sorties Result In Loss of 1,000 Men. Two attempted sorties by the be leaguered Turkish garrison of Adrlan ople last week were repulsed by the Ilulgariaus. .

In addition to Delegates U. S. G. Rhodes, II. R. ABbury, David K. Hill and Rath Ruff and Senator B. A. Smith, the five members of the legis lature who were arrested last Tues day on evidence secured by Burns operatives, another victim fell into the dragnet. He Is Delegate George S. Vanmeter of Grant county, Civil war veteran. Vanmeter was indicted under the misdemeanor statute and stands charged with accepting a bribe oi $2"i0.

No indictment was returned by the grand Jury against Colonel Edwar.is. the senatorial candidate, who was charged in a warrant upon complaint of Delegate F. S. G. Rhodes with the attempted bribery or Delegate John H. Smith. The latter was before the grand Jury and, after his testimony had been received an additional indict ment was issued against Delegate Rhodes, charging him with the at tempted bribery of the Tyler delegate with an offer of $2,000 for his vote. The six accused members of the legislature were arraigned in court before Judge Black, following the re turn of the Indictments and bond In the sum of $2,500 each was given. They must answer to the charges on April 28 at the next term of the in termediate court. Burns detectives are said to have worked up the case and a dictagraph, said to have been placed in Rhodes' room, played an important, part in trapping the accused legislators. Rhodes, the delegate who placed Isaac K. Mann in nomination, is said to have been the game for which the prosecutor played from the beginning, ami it was stated after the arrest that of the $22,000 paid out in marked money to the legislators he received $13,000. Duff, it is alleged, was given $2,000 and each of the others $1,000. "MOTHER" JONES ARRESTED With Several Others She Is Charged With Conspiracy. The arrest of "Mother" Jones', famous agitator; C. H.

The house law and order committee reported affirmatively the Rockwell local option bill, indefinitely post poned the Walton measure on the same subject and delayed action for one week on the Steele prohibitory amendment. The action or the committee In re porting the Rockwell bill was unani mous, the liquor men considering it to be the part or wisdom to not oppose the bringing out of the measure. The Walton bill supporters say that It was W. F. Whitman of Venango who voted with the liquor men on this proposi tion. The Rockwell bill would allow boroughs and cities of 10,000 or more population to vote separately on the granting of liquor licenses, the smaller divisions of a county voting together. State aid for vocational education would be provided by bills introduced into the house by C. M. C. Campbell of Allegheny and Harry M. Showalter of Union. The measures are com panion pieces and were prepared In the department of public instruction. They are credited with having the sup port or the state board of education The Showalter bill directs the state board of education to investigate and aid in the introduction of industrial, agricultural and household arts educa lion and to initiate and superintend the establishment and maintenance o' schools and departments for vocation al education. These definitions are set out in the bill: "Vocational education means any education, the controlling purpose oi which is to fit for profitable employ ment. Industrial education means tc fit for the trades, crafts and manii facturing pursuits, Including the occu pations of girls and women carried on in workshops. Agricultural educa tion fits for the occupations connected with the tillage of the soil, the care ol domestic animals, forestry and other wage-earning or productive work or. the farm. Household arts education Is to fit for occupations connected with the household." The judiciary general committee of the house has reported out the Stein resolution, providing for a commission to Investigate the subject of mothers' pensions and report to the next legis lature. This action Indicates that nothing will foe done at this session in the way of mothers' pension laws. Frank Gray of Philadelphia hss put a bill In the house to limit the service of jurors in the common pleas and quarter sessions court to one week.

PUT UNION JACK AT POLE Captain Scott's Diary Tells of Suc cessful Dash. The disaster which has overtaken Captain Robert F. Scott and four of his companions in the return Journey from tho south pole came as an utter surprise to London and cast a gloom over the community which has been unequalled inre tho death of King Kdward. Confirmation of earlier re ports was received in a message to the Royal Geographical society. Those to die with Scoit were: Dr. 10. A. Wilson, chief of the scientific staff; Captain L. K. G. Oats of the Innisklll ii:g dragoons. Lieutenant II. R. Bowers of the Royal Indian marine, the com missariat olllcer. nn d l'ctly Officer E. Evans of the British Royal navy. Captain Scott's party reached tho exact point where Roald Amundsen planted the Norwegian flag at the south pole. A Union Jack was set up. The first day at the pole, according to the diaries, was cloudy with the sun obscured. The next day was clear and the sun was visible. Sights were taken. Captain Scott used a four inch theodolite. This was different from the course of Captain Amundsen who used u sextant with an artificial horizon, but the location of the pole by tho Norwegian and English ex plorers differed by only hair a mile, and thus both of tlieni were practically at the same spot. These facts were recorded in the documents found on the bodies of the dead explorers. BUSINESS KEEPS STEADY Stirring Events of Week Have Had Little Effect Dun's Review. Dun's Review of Trade says this week: "Business maintains its position of steady, conservative expansion, as yet unaffected in any material respect by the stirring events happening or Im- 1 ding In many parts of the world. Although the renewed war In tho Bal kan peninsula continues to put a strain upon the international markets, it is noteworthy that the situation in Paris seems easier. "While the eastern railroads are threatened with a strike of firemen there Is still a prospect of amicable adjust ment by arbitration. Railroad purchases or equipment continue to be the leading feature of the iron and steel trade, which maintains its favor able, aspects." Turbulence In Japan. Residences of government officials in Japan are under constant guard be cause of the popular unrest now mani fest In that country. Farewell For "Uncle Joe."
