The Work of Trying ta End War Will
Proceed With Deliberation.
El Paso , Tox. , May 4. Peace nego
tiations scheduled to begin today will
probably l progress with more than
usual deliberation , owing to the fact
that Judge Carabajal , the government
commissioner , will be compelled to
hold frequent consultations with Mexico
ice City. The commissioners will meet
In a 200-foot ring , roped and guarded
to keep out the curious. Not even
General Madero will he permitted to
enter. Judge Carabajal and Dr. Vas-
quez Gomez , the elder Francisco Ma
dero and Senor Pine Suarez , who rep
resent the Insurrectos , will be the sole
occupants of the charmed circle.
The site of the peace conference was
not chosen for the newspaper men. It
is the Mexican side of the Rio Grande ,
midway between Juarez and the in-
surrecto camp. As General Navarro
will not allow the reporters to pass
through Juarez , It is necessary to
make the trip to the scene of the
peace negotiations by way of the foot
bridge , near the El Paso smelter , two
miles beyond the meeting place of the
conferees , which in addition , necessi
tates the retracing of two miles more
on the Mexican side.

in the Next Few Days.

the line.
Directly south of Agua Prieta the
federals have done most of their work ,
erecting heavy entrenchments with
adobe barricades and sand bags.
In the exact center of the line of en
trenchments they have erected an
adobe block house with a platform on
which to mount machine guns.
The attacking 'rebels , firing from
any angle , will shoot directly towards
Douglas and only bullets stopped by
the block house itself or buildings of
Agua Prieta will fall to cross the line.

In possession of this information and
Washington has been advised of the
danger to American citizens.

Rosebud Appraisement Work Has
Been Resumed.
Sioux Falls , S. D. . May 4. The-
government appraisers appointed to
make an appraisement of the surplus
ands of the Rosebud Indian reservn-
ion in Mellette county , after having
abandoned work during the winter ,
IIHVO again resumed operations and
will puh the work of making the
appraisement to a conclusion as
speedily as possible.
The members of the appraising crew
state that they expect to complete
their work about August 1 next , when
about 1,000,000 acres of the surplus
land will be ready to be opened to
iltf settlers as soon as the oflicials
at Washington can make the neces
sary arrangements It Is expected
the Washington end of the arrange
ments can be completed in time to
have the immense tract thrown upon
the market early in October.
It is presumed that well before the
date of the opening a railroad will
have been constructed to the border of
the tract to be opened , giving home
steaders every opportunity to reacli
the laud without difficulty. The ter
minus of the railroad now is at Win
ner , county seat of Tripp county. Di
rectly west of WInner is the town of
Carter , which is situated on the bor
der of the million-acre tract which Ute
to be thrown open for white home
steaders. By extending westward from.
Winner to Carter the homesteaders
who occupy the lands will be given
railroad facilities to the very edge of
the promised land.
it is certain that one of the greatest
land rushes in the history of the state
will be witnessed when the surplus
Indian lands In Mellette county are
thrown open to settlement. Informa
tion from that part of the state Is to
the effect that numerous persons who
have decided to attempt to secure
homesteads In Mellette county already
have taken up their residence in the
region near the boundary of the tract
which is to be opened , and will remain
there until the tract Is formally open
ed and they have the right to occupy
The fact that farms In the ceded
portion of Tripp and Gregory coun
ties. which until a few years ago also
uere embraced in the Rosebud Indian
reservation , already are worth from
f.'iO to $50 an acre , making intending
homesteaders all the more anxious to
secure farms In Mellette county , an in
the course of two or three years at the
latest the land there will be worth
fully as much as land now Is worth In
Tripp and Gregory counties.
