the suggestion , made yesterday by Fran

commissioners to Judge Carbajal, the fed
General Madero tonight was approached
by one of the federal go-betweens in
certain whether he would consent to an
extenalon of the armistice which expires
tomorrow, tie replied that he would ai
ewer that question tomorrow mnmin
lie eald if an extension were aaked by the
isaerai government he would demand ape
clflc reasona before granting it.
Judge Carbajal. as well as the mhi
peace commissioners, remained in their
hotel here all day. Dr. Vumm rsnln..
head of the rebel commission, said at to
o'clock tonight that ha waa Hill awaiting
word from Judge Carbajal as to yester
days proposition and that no moie peace
conferences would be held until a reply
arbajal Makes Denial.
Judge Carbajal himself thrust a perplex
ing note into the day even is by declar
ing that he had not officially transmitted
the proposition of the rebel commission
ers. He told the newspaper men that
be had no authority to receive any propo
sitions concerning the Dlaa resignation,
his Instructions covering only specifio
points concerning political reforms.
When told of this General Madero ex
pressed the opinion that perhaps Judge
Carfcajul was not willing to acknowledge
the submission of the Dlaa question to the
. government. .
Some of the federals' go-botweens admitted
that It was their impression the govern
ment received the Madero proposition last
night, but could not state la what form U

All the Insurrecto chiefs believe the gov
ernment now is fully cognizant of their
demands, at any rate through the press,
and that the delay .In tha receipt of an
answer Is due to confusion la official
circles la Mexico City. Some of them
eceat friction in the cabinet of the presi

General Madero feels that he has played
his trump card. He showed plainly today
the effect of the nervous strain of the last

has been persuaded that only through an
announcement of the Intended resignation

The change in hla views is said to have
been due to the persuasion of Dr. Vasqiiea
Gomes. Dr. 'Gomez, before coming here,
was one of those who thought peace could
be effected with President Diaz In power
and 'the Informal assurances of President

When' he arrived, however, and learned of
the determined position of revolutionary

Mary Garden loves anlmnls.
Therefore Omaha Is assured prominent
place in Mary Garden's Impressions of her
present concert tour. This isn't entirely
Omaha's fault; It Is partly Omaha's good
Mary Garden's first Impression of Omaha,
you see, was of Omaha's packing houses.
She dtdn'e visit them; she didn'e even see
them, but she did use them an a topic of
conversation against the trio of newspaper
reporters who Invaded her railroad castle
soon after It crossed Omaha's drawbridge.
6he then expresed both her Interest In the
business which so quickly converts living
creatures Into merchandise, and her Inter
est in the animals before their conversion.
But the more vivid impression was also a
more convincing Imprenslnn of this Inter
est In animals. It was the prima donna's
visit to the leopards who have been ap
pearing this week at the Orpheum.
And the Mary Garden who watched the
performance of the five beautiful Jungle
expatriates was very different from the
Mary Garden who leaned among the cush

graciously answered the queries of the

evident admiration the tricks of the little
spotted beasts In the cage on the stage.
And later, after the act, aha went behind
the scenes and talked to the leopard and
Madam valleclta, their trainer.
First Appearanee In Vandevllle.
It waa Mary Garden's first appearance
on a vaudeville stage. She acknowledged
the fact with a smile when queried. It
was a very pretty first appearance and
quite captivated those who witnessed It.
First the visiting opera star wanted to go
up to the stage and look at the leopards,
perhaps Btroke them. A watchful attend
ant warned her back.
"The chinchilla fur, madam," he said.
"They don't like that."
And madam lifted the broad stole of fur
with a light French movement of the
shoulders and obeyed, stepped back a
"1 wonder." she mused, "how long it
took to teach those animals to play the
'Last Rose of Summer' as they do."
To wonder was to know apparently, for
the prima donna met the leopard tamer
and aked her. The leopard trainer flushed
slightly with pleasure and pride lu the

"Two years! Think of that. It must

The opera queen in her conventional

In ber pleasure.
"You have to keep right at it. don't
