Madero Has Demanded Surrender
of Juarez.
The Revolutionists Have Juarez Prac
ticaiiy Surrounded and Will Use
Artillery if Attack is
El Paso, April 20.—The residents of
this city are figuratively speaking
looking directly into the muzzles ol
the insurrecto artilletry, with the
knowledge that within 24 hours it will
open upon Juarez and incidentally
upon ,.hem. After moving north dur
ing the day Madero and his army, pro
tected by Arroyas have surrounded
Juarez in a semi-circle from south
west to northwest.
Should the battle begin 1C1 Paso will
be swept by a storm of steel and lead
many more times destructive than the
storm that killed and maimed the
residents of Douglas two days ago.
El Paso's only hope lies in the
chance that Gen. Navarro commanu
ing the federal troops will surrender.
A demand that Navarro should sur
render was made upon him by Gen.
Gonzales Garza, secretary general of
the insurrecto party, in charge of the
El Paso junta.
A Formal Demand.
The formal demand for the sur
render of Juarez was transmitted
from Garza to Navarro by United
States consul Edwards. Navarro, was
not at headquarters at the time but
received it upon his return. As yet
Navarro has made no reply.
The insurrectos cannot be seen
from El Paso although thousands of
anxious spectators armed with field
glasses and located on the tops of the
tallest buildings have searched the
Mexican frontier for them all day.
Nevertheless they are there hidden in
arroyas and mountains that stretch
south from the international line.
Gonzoles Garza secretary general
of the Insurrectos, received passports
during the day, he declared to cross
the line to visit Francisco I. Madero
and lay before him the plans of Dr.
Gomez at Washington for an arm
istice to discuss peace terms.
Garza declared that he did not
know whether he would go or not, as
he did not know exactly where Ma
dero was located, although he knew
he was near Juarez.
He said that Gomez’s message had
been delivered to Madero but that no
orders so for had been received from
Madero to stop fighting.

The Fact of the Shortage Did Not
Make Depositors Nervous—All
Paid Back..
Beloit, Kan., April 20.'—Because he
needed money to build, a house and
pay for a motor car, IE. F. Burns is
alleged to have taken $10,357 from
the Home State Bank of Tipton, of
which he was. cashier. Tipton is a
small town in the southwest part of
Mitchell county.
It was not the first intention of the
bank officials to prosecute Burns, as
the money has been restored. Notice
has been received, however, from J.
Holley, state bank commissioner,
that a warrant should be issued for
The krst repou't was that Burns was
short $20,000 in his accounts. A.
Bueche, president of the bank, says,
however, that the shortage is $10,357.
The depositors of the bank knew of
the defalcation soon after it was dis
covered, but they showed confidence
in the stockholders and made no run.
Mr. Beuche said that the entire
amount of the shortage had been
made up by the defaulting cashier’s
relatives and by a deed to his per
sonal property, which he made out to
Mr. Beuche as president of the bank.
Burns’ father, who lives in Horton,
sent a check for $3,000; his father-in
law, Joseph Fischer, who is a stock
holder of the bank, deposited $2,000,
and Michael Fischer paid in $1,000.
This, with the cashier’s property,
more than made up the amount need
ed to balance the accounts. The
stockholders are wealthy farmers.
Burns is now in Tipton and the di
rectors of the bank have decided not
to prosecute him. He went to Tipton
la«t fall.

Douglas, Ariz., April 20.—Mexico oft
beyond Agua Prieta to the south and
in the great semi-amphitheater where
the recent conflicts have been staged]
presents a stretch of upward sloping I
desert and corrugated mountains en j

Col. Diaz fresh from the barber
smiling and affable stated that he!
does not fear any attack.
"The rebels have fled into the
mountains’’ he said. But not as an
organization. They are in many
bands; they have been routed, broken
up. What semblance of the military
they had been forsaken. I have 1,200
men here, all well equipped. We do
not fear, we are ready at all times.
"Possibly the many separate bands
of rebels will again join together at
tempt reorganization and advance to
attack us. Even so, we are prepared.’’ I
The reason for the surprising evacu- i
ation is very largely a subject ol I
speculation. Here exhaustion of am
munition is the principal explanation
and the one that contains the balm
for the insurrectos. Yet this does aot
altogether explain according to the
clearer light that is being shed on
happenings. The federals captured
enough rebel ammunition to have ]
justified a very formidable defense by j
the besieged. And another count,
most important perhaps of all is that
the Mexican rebels left their Ameri
can comrades in the trenches while
they disappeared under nocturnal
protection, some like Carcia and
Mendina to seek the ways of peace in
Douglas and others to flee to the

hint of an occasion for so doing.
It seems doubtful, however, that
the rebellion leaders will develop a
force in the near future of strength
and daring sufficient to take Agua
Prieta again.
The Man Accused of Distributing
Lorimer Corruption Fund Thinks
He Has Grievance.
Springfield, 111., April 20.—Lee
O'Neill'Browne, who twice was tried
on a charge of having distributed the
corruption fund which is alleged to
have elected William Ixuimer to the
United States senate, made an irppas
eioged anneal to the legislator to:
the passage of a libel law which pro
poses to muzzle the press of the state
ns effectually as does the English law
muzzle English newspapers.
The papers control everything," he
declared. 'Everybody is afraid of
them. It used to be that they would
tell the truth, but that time has
"Cases are not tried in the courts
nowadays. They are tried in the
newspapers. The trial in court is
only a circumstance.”
After attacking several editors in
personal terms, llrowne declared:
“The only way we can get back al
such fellows under the present law\
is by physical violence."

The Former Speaker Thinks the Ca
nadian Bill Most Important Leg
islation Since Spanish War.

Cannon spoke in opposition to the
Canadian reciprocity agreement. He
characterized it as the most impor- i
tart legislation before congress since j

stituents. He criticized the presi

More Request* Come to the Secretary
of State for Them Than for
# Any Other.
Topeka, April 20.—There Is more
Interest in tho good roads legislation
of the 1911 session of the Kansas
legislature thah In any other meas
ure* or set of measures enacted In t he
CO days the session continued.
Moro requests have come to tho
secretary of state for the copies or
the good roads and bridge law than
for any other bill pas" d last winter.
The compensation law Is second and
the drainage law is third. There was
a good deal of comment about tho
public utilities bill, but (here Is not
nearly so much Interest In It, judging
from the requests for copies, as iu
the good roads bill.
Charles Session, secretary of state
has had printed several thousand
copies of the bill and Iheso are being
sent out free. Many requests come to
the different state officers for a
synopsis of the law. The bill as
passed contains more than GO sec
tions and covers some 2,0 pages of
printed matter.
Kansas people are taking more in
terest in good roads now than ever
before. The 1911 legislature simply
wiped out all previous good roads
legislation and revised the old laws,
put all of Ihe 200 separate and dis
tinct sections In the old statutes into
a new law containing all tho realty
good legislation on roads that Kan
sas has ever had, added some new
points and made a complete road law.

for the hospital, but provides that it
must be located in the western sec
tion of the state.

The Capital City Puts Faith in the
Much Depends Upon the Position to
Be Taken by Madero Who Has
Not Yet Been Heard
Mexico •City, April 20.—Senor DeLa
Barra, minister of foreign relations,
expressed his belief that the arm
istice proposal might result in an un
derstanding with the revolutionists.
The administration is embarrassed,
somewhat by the publication in cer
tain journals and by ill advised cor
respondents that I ho rebels had hum
bly sued for the cessation of fighting.
This Is not the case. The proposal
emanted from tho conference held by
Senor DeLaBarra with Senor Gome/,
in Washington and results as much
from the wishes of one side as tho
There seems to be somo foundation
that, the peace negotiations have
reached a basis at least. Minister
Cosio is quoted as saying that tho
1'nited States had given notice of in
tervention in three days time unless
some such step was taken. It W’as
on this conversation that the ter
rorized condition of tho American
colony here was based. The talk from
tho members of the minister's family
spread until it grew to the proportions
of an Immediate belief that a plau
had been laid for the massacre of the
Americans and tho call of the deputa
tions of Americans on our ambassa
dor followed. It is out of such thin,
gosslppy material that half the scare
stories sent out from here develop.
Llmantour Sanguine.
Minister Llmantour seemed more
sanguine thau ho has been for some
days and a feeling of reassurment is
perceptible throughout, the city. From
Kwo cabinet ministers it was learn
ed that all depends now upon the
position taken by Francisco Madero
regarding the step taken by Dr.
Oomez. The rebel failure to hold
Agua I’rieta auguers for a feeling of
receptiveness of negotiations on the
part of Maderistas In the Held. Still
with the supiclons that exist regard
ing each other on both sides, anything
is liable to upset, the trying pan and.
project the bacon into tbo coals.
From the reliable reports receiv
ed from Americans in various interior
places, it is evident that the Mexican
army will soon ho in possession of
plenty of men and particularly or
elllcicnt cavalry which is the most es
sential branch of the service. Vaquer
as aro enlisting in great, numbers, as
they receive 75 pesos a month and
those who can read and write are im
