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

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.

ROCKWELL BILL
REPORTED OUT
Other Liquor Measures to Rest
Awhile in Committee
DELAY FOR MOTHERS' PENSIONS
Measure That Would Give State Aid
For Vocational Education in Penn
sylvania Introduced in the House.
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.
When the lists were drawn the county
commissioners would be requested to
publish them in the newspaper In the
county having the largest circulation.
The Leslie resolution to Investigate
the charges made against the Mor
ganza reform school was defeated in
the house.

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
