Tragic Climax to Series ol
Events ia Mexico Ci!y
MEN ON WAY TO PENITENTIARY
Government Disclaims All Responsl.
bllity For Deaths of Deposed Presi
dent and Vic President in Capital.
Francisco I. Madero and Pino
Snares, the deposed president and
vice president of Mexico, were shot
to deatli while, a guard of rurales was
taking them from the national palace
to the penitentiary in Mexico City.
General Huerta, the provisional
president, and Franclsro De La Harra;
the premier, have disavowed the kill
ing and have informed the United
States government that Madero and
Suarez were killed by the bullets ol
their own friends in an attempt to
rescue them. They say that the gov
ernment profoundly deplores the oc
currence and will track down and
punish the murderers.
The American ambassador believes
the government had no hand In the
assassinations and accepts the state
ment as accurate and sincere.
There are the ugliest rumors to the
contrary. Many of the people believe
that Madero and Suarez were victims
of the ley de fuga and that the gov
ernment employed a trick frequently
used by Porlirlo Diaz when he desired
to rid himself of people dangerous
to the welfare of the republic. -
The widow of Madero obtained pos
session of his body only after Am
bassador Wilson had Interceded for
her. Nearly prostrated from the
frightful news that had come to her,
she pleaded pitifully for hours for
permission to see the body. The gov
ernment refused. Mr. Wilson called
upon De 1 Barra and persuaded him
to grant Senora Madero's request.
Later General Blanquet delivered the
body to the senora's brother.
In contrast to the widow, whose
grief was of a pitiably silent char
acter, expressed In sobs, Mercedes Ma
dero, a beautiful young woman, edu
cated in Paris, who has been a bril
liant leader of society since the revo
lution of 1910, waB dry eyed and tiger
ish in her emotions. By the side of
the two women whose husbands had
been killed the girl hurled accusations
at the officers who barred the en
trance. "Cowards!" "Assassins!" she called
thera, her voice pitched high. The of
licers stared impassively.
"You! the men who fired on a de
fenseless man! You and your superior
officers sre traitors!"
- No effort was made to remove the
women, nor did the officers attempt
to silence them. Senora Madero con
tinued weeping and the girl did not
cease her-hysterical tirade until the
arrival of the Spanish minister and the
Japanese charge, who came 3ppffer
their services. . ' ''
The government had planned to
accord the body of the ex-president
full military honors on account of Ma
dero's former high rank. A brigade
commanded by General Gaus was
drawn up at the pen. The plan was
finally abandoned as inexpedient.
The city Is quiet today under the
Iron rule of Huerta. The people have
dared not express openly what thou
sands are whispering. The soldiers
of Huerta and Diaz crowd the streets
and the government has announced
that It will brook no opposition. Some
accept as truthful the government's
explanation. Many insist, however,
that thekilling was ordered by. the au
thorities. The ex-president and ex-vice presi
dent were riddled with bullets while
they were being driven in an auto
through the Calle Le Cumberrl In the
Colonia De La Bolsa not far from the
penitentiary, their destination. The
Colonia is the White Chapel district
of the capital. Late at night it Is
poorly lighted and lonely save for the
presence of policemen and unfortu
nates. According to the official statement
made by the government Major Carde.
nas and a force of two officers, an
orderly and Beven rurales were at
tacked In the Calle le Cumberrl by five
armed men who shouted "Viva Ma
dero!" and Instantly discharged their
rifles and pistols at the auto. Simul
taneously aLout thirty men ran from
side streets and fired volleys, killing
Suarez and Madero.
One of the attacking party was
killed, several were wounded and a
(ew arrested by Cardenas and hi?
When the guard left the palace with
the prisoners there were no signs of
disorder or the presence of rebels. It
was a brUht night. The moon fur
nished a clear light. When they ar
rived within a short distance of the
ion five men leaped from an alley and
began shooting at the guards in the
leading auto. Major Cardenas drew
his revolver and discharged It at the
attacking party. The rurales opened
fire wltji their carbines.
Almost at once the attackers were
reinforced by , perhaps thirty armed
men who came running from slue
streets and nil firing upon 'the twe
The prisoners were killed almost at
the outset of .the fight. The govern
inent's statement sas the Maderistaf
delivered a heavy flr upon the cat

by bullets. Each of the prisoners
was hit by many bullets.
After Cardenas hail taken the bodies
to the penitentiary he returned to the
palace and Informed President Huerta
as to wlu't hi;;peneJ. The presi
dent directed his chief of staff to send
for the cabinet ministers. The presi
dent and the cabinet conferred and
then the newspaper men were sum
moned to the palace. This was two
hours and a half after the murder.
It is whispered about the capital
that the execution of Madero and of
Suarez had been determined upon by
the Huerta government because of the
belief that the country could never be
pacified with Madero alive. Many peo
ple expect that the government will
punish Major Cardenas and his men
in order to express official disapproval
and to appease public dissatisfaction.
It is Insistently rumored that Ma
dero's guards had orders to shoot him
and Suarez before arriving at the
Assassinations Shock Washington.
Oflicial Washington was most deep
ly shocked to hear or the killing of
Francisco Madero aud Pino Suarez,
deposed president and vice president
of Mexico, in the streets in Mexico
The word came from President Taft,
however, that the slaying of Madero
aud Suarez, deplorable as the admin
istration regarded it, afforded no
basis for any change in the attitude
of the United States regarding the
Although the United States govern
ment had expressed to the Huerta
government in Mexico its earnest hope
that Madero would not be executed by
any summary or illegal process, this
expression of views was not made in
the form of a demand for the preserva
tion of Madero's life.
That the Mexican government will
be severely censured by public opin
ion in the United States for permitting
Madero to be killed while a prisoner,
even though Itself not in a plot for his
death, was predicted. Just as the ex
ecution of Gus,tYO,,Madero; alienated
from the new .Q4njtrienfc. in Mexico
much of the sympathy "which it had
enjoyed In Washington, so the kfTIIng
of Madero and Suarez, It is declared,
will lower Mexico even further in the
opinion of the United States.
It is recognized that it is no real
concern of the United States what
Mexico does with her public men and
that the killing of Madero does not
justify the adoption of any strong
measures by the United States, yet
on the other hand it Is believed his
death will do much to prepare public
opinion for Intervention In Mexican
affairs at some future time. '

TO FREE THAW
Matteawan Superintendent Says
He Turned Down $20,000
AVERS LAWYER TEMPTED HIM
Dr. Russell "Thinks' John Anhut Is
Name of Man Who Approached Him.
Startling Story Told at Inquiry.
A bribe of $20,000 to release Harry
K. Thaw from the Matteawan State
Hospital For the Insane was offered
to Dr. J. R. Russell, superintendent
of the Institution, last November ac
cording to his own testimony before
the Sulzer committee of Inquiry hold
ing hearings In Albany, N. Y.
This was the result of a charge that
W. F. Clark, a friend of Governor Sill
ier and secretary of the probe com
mittee, had tried to influence Dr. Rus
sell and Dr. James May, the president
of the state hospital commission, to
give Harry Thaw his freedom..
Thaw can only he released upon a
supreme court order or through a cer
tificate signed by Dr. Russell that he
lias recovered his mental balance. It
is this certificate of recovery which
Dr. Russell said an attempt was made
to bribe him to give.
Dr. Russell stated that In an up
town hotel the offer by a lawyer of
$20,000 to release Thaw was made. He
could not recall the name of the hotel.
The offer was made last November
after the last attempt to release Thaw
proved unsuccessful. Later he said
he "thought" the man who attempted
to bribe hlra was named John Anhut.
Asked how he had known this law
yer, Dr. Russell said he had met him
before at White Plains, where he sat
near Thaw during the hearing. He
asserted that he did not accept the
money from the lawyer.
Dr. James May, president of the
hospital commission, corroborated in
detail the testimony of Dr. Russell.
He said Secretary Clark had Informed
him that Governor Sulzer was desirous
of having Thaw discharged.
W. F. Clark vehemently denied the
assertions of Dr. Russell and pointed
out to the committee that he hud gone
to Matteawan in the capacity of a
newspaperman eager to get the facts
of the story of attempted bribery.
John H. Delaney, one of the mem
bers of the probe committee, and Mr.
Clark stated that a Jewish lawyer o!
New York had $2.1,000 to give Dr. Rus
sell and that $20,000 had been give?
to Dr. Russell on conditiou that Thaw
would be released before the end of
The story goes on that when Gover
nor Sulzer assumed office in January
Thaw had not been released and that
Dr. Russell returned $1 1,0(10 to the
Thaws through Detective Hoffman ol
Poughkeepsle, according to Mr. Clark.
OVERLOADED BILL DOOMED
Public Building Measure Too Big by
The omnibus public buildings bill,
passed by the house and carrying a
total of almost $26,000,000, was report
ed to the United States senate.
A total of $20,000,000 has been added
by the senate committee, making i'.n
appropriation bill of nearly $:!6.000,
000. Its ultimate fate is problematical,
although some house Democrats go so
far as to say that the measure will
never become a law.
While a few hold to the belief that
the conference of the two houses will
be able to reach an agreement the
majority expect It to fall and point out
that President Taft will veto it on the
grounds of extravagance.
Of the additions made by the sen
ate committee a total of $707,000 is
for the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio
and West Virginia, distributed as fol
lows: Postofflces at Ridgway. Pa., $80,000;
