MEXICO CITY, Way (.The resignation
of Forflrlo Olas as president of Mezloo
within a short time is regarded here today
as a certainty. Should the announcement
b made tomorrow or even tonight it would
caufe no surprise to his cabinet.
No authoritative confirmation could be ob
tained, but there appears little dour that
'resident Diss, recognizing the seriousness
of the situation and responding to the pop
ular demand," will retire when order is re
stored. A't the president's office no statement
could be had and the cabinet, realizing that
he was the only man who could give a
direct answer to the demands of Francisco
I. Madero, Jr., the revolutionary leader, that
Dies should publish his Intention to resign,
This afternoon Minister of Foreign Af
fairs de la Barra was peremptorily sum
moned to the office of the president. On
arriving he found Senor Llmantour, minis
ter of finance, who likewise had been sum
moned. The three officials were in con
ference for hours.
Immediately afterwards typewrlten state-'
menu were issued by the foreign office to
al! newspapers saying the reception to the
Chilean minister tomorrow and the banquet
to him had been postponed until May 13.
The reason for this was given as "the slight
Illness of the president."
Since the statement was Issued General
Dlas is known to have been out riding in
his automobile. This morning he appar
ently was In his Usual health. This in con
nection with the fact that the conference
was held gives rise to the belief that the
announcement of his Intention to resign
will not be made before tomorrow at the
In the event of his resignation there will
be no opposition on the part of the present
government officials to Senor de la Barra's
Incumbency of the presidency pending elec
tions. The question of Vice President Cor
ral's resignation is not so simple. It Is
known that before departing far Europe
he refused to resign, and since arriving
there he r.ae reiterated this statement.
This is regarded as merely Incidental.
The officials consider the resiguetton of
Diss the only solution to the trouble.
Reluctantly they admit the ' growing
strength of the rebels and realise that
peace is improbable should he antagonise
In the capital the celebration of the an
niversary of the taking of Tuebla by
Ignaclo .Zaragoza was characterised .by
dullness. For the first time In many years
the usual military parade was omitted, be
cause the nation's soldiers are otherwue

about the streets, furnished the only ex
citement. They gathered In the street In
front of the national palace, and although
UugUng and chatting. Indulged in a few
cries of "Viva Madero."
The police took no measures to disperse
the crowd which filed Into the Garden of
2oca!o, the aquares In front of the palace
or poured aimlessly in and out of the prin
cipal tre-tj of the neighborhood. In Isa

him. crying "Viva Maderu." that the '

crowd wsa not looking for trouble, how

Another crowd"' pushed down Cade04

Railroad Traffle Demoalised.
Ha 11 road traffic continues demoralised.
A ' train arriving from the north brought
a story of a holdup by 500 rebels at Lulu,
ninety miles south of SaJtlllo. The rebels
searched the train but did not molest the
passengers. From the express car they
took some thousands of pesos, howeyer.
The rebels then held the passenger train
until the arrival of a freight train, the
pox cars of which were loaded with rub
ber. This was unloaded and the rebels,
with their horses, got into the box cars.
The crew of the freight train was then
told to get aboard the passenger train,
which was permitted to proceed.
It developed then that the rebela had
their own train crew and even telegraph
operators. They told persons on the pas
senger train they were going north on' a
bridge burning expedition.
The war department la silent on the sub
ject at Torraon. Ealtlllo and Durango,
which" are reported to have been taken by
the rebels. .
TROUBLE AMONG I .ML R RECTOS
Factions Ready to Flaht Over Re.
ported Thefts of Ammunition.
EL PASO, Tex.,' May e.-What many in
surrectos regard as a suspicious coinci
dence was the drowning today of Jules
Muller, a Frenchman serving in the revo
lutionist army. One hour after he had
almost caused a battle between the forces
commanded by Colonel Villa and thosa of
Colonel Garibaldi some insurrectos
brought in the news that he had lost his
life while batiUng In the Rio Grande.
The trouble started several days ago.
when Muller withdrew from Garibaldi's
command and Joined that of Villa. He
told tbe latter- that Americans In -Garibaldi's
command wtre taking away ammu
nition from the camp and selling it in El
Paso. Colonel Villa sent Muller with an
order today asking Colonel Garibaldi to
disarm the, men suspected. Garibaldi,
recognising Muller as a man 'who had
prsvlously caused trouble, sent him back
to Colonel Villa with aa order that he
be arrested. Instead of delivering it,
Muller reported to Colonel Villa that Colo
nel Uarlbaldl's ' men had opened fire" . on
Colonel Villa immediately rode out with
ids forces ready for. battle and a fight
was Imminent, but the matter was
straightened out among the leaders and
Muller's body waa recovered from the
river a fow hours later. Shortly after
Muller was drowned an American serving
in Garibaldi's command, supposed to have
become enraged because he was suspected
of being one of those who had tsken arms
from the camp, snatched a Mexican flag
which hung from his tent and set flra to
it. He then bolted for the river, pursued
by other insurrectos, and began to swim
to the American side. Troopers of the
Fourth Iniled States cavalry paused in
their patrol along the river and threw a
ruie to the man after he had passed the
middle of the stream.
The insurrectos bad leveled their rifles
at the swimming men, when the United
States troopers also drew their revolvers.
The United states troops shouted to the
Insuriectos not to shoot. The swimmer
vu pulled aahora safely.
While they can, Insurreclo offloials are
appealing to reap what rewards they may
in taxution. The insurrectos hold the cus
tom port of Pahniaa. Mexico, which Is
opposite Columbus, X. M.. seventy-one
miles west of El Paso. This is the only
port through which cattle can now be
exported to the United States froin north
ern .Mexico, and many ow ners of . big
ranchrs have conti acted for delivery of
cattle In the United States snd must make
deliveries et once. The insurrectos have
fUed a tax of 15 a head on all live stock
exported to the United States.
The railroads are cut so that cattle can
not be brought up to Juares and El Paso
frcm the big ranches In northern Mexico.
It Is said that General Luis Terrazas,
former boss of Chihuahua, has contracted
to deliver 40,000 head of cattle in the
United States. If he has to submit to the
rebel export tax. It w-11 coat him 1300,400 to
get his cattle out.
