WASHINGTON. May 1l.-Th Inca
pacity of the republican party Itvthe sen
ate to Control a caucus edict without the
aid of the progressives was demonstrate!
In the nenate todav when, after mora than
two hours of effort and at a result of
even ballot, the annate failed to eject
Fenator Galllnger of New Hampshire
president pi'o tcmpora to succeed Senator
Frye of Mains.
Mr.. Fry' recent resignation waa basej
r,n poor' health. .Today's deadlock waa
due ta the opposition of the progressive
republican senators, five of a horn voted
aralnat and threa of whom were paired
against Mr. Galllnger.
Soon after the aennte convened at S
o clock Vice President Sherman ahented
tilmaclf from the chamber and ' Senator
!jlKe ss-ui.iod the chair. Immediately
Senator i .Hum. aa the chairman of the
republican caucus, moved that the senate
proceed to the election of a president pro
tempore, placing- Mr. Oaliinarer In nomina
tion. The nomination of Senator Bacon of
Georgia hy Senator Martin, chairman of
the democratic caucus, followed. Senator
LitFolette performed the same service for
Almost Instantly the ballotting pro
ceeded. Proareaalrea Are Paired.
Upon the flrat ballot It waa apparent
that when the progressives did not caM
their votes axainst Mr. BGalllnger they
acre o paired as to make effective the
votes of abaentees.
Senator Horah announced his desire to
vote for Galllnger, but stated that owing
to a pair with Senator Works, who waa
unfriendly to Senator Galllnger, he could
not do so.: Later be stated that this pair
had not been arranged to Injure the New
Hampshire senator. Mr. Dixon was paired
with Mr. Cummins and Mr. Kenyon with
The flrat ballot totaled 7 votes, of which
' Mr. Bacon, the democratlo candidate, re
ceived SI; Mr.-aJllncer, the republican can
didate. S3, and Mr. Clapp .4. while Mr.
Kacon stood for Mr. Tillman and Mr.
Clapp for Mr. Brlalow. .
Messrs. Bristow.. La , Follette. Gronna
n-1,jmaiter',rod for Clappf' Messrs.
Cummins. Bourne. Works and Crawford,
'pi o(rrsstvM,- 'were.. Ml.' absent, but paired
for Senator Clapp, except Mr. Crawford,
who was til. All the democratic votes were
caat for Mr. Bacon.
Thirty-seven were necessary for a choice.
The only change in the second ballot . was
tlml Senator Galllnger, who had refrained
from voting on the previous roll call, voted
for Mr. Lodge, Increasing .the total vote
to seventy-four and making thirty-eight
necessary to elect. '
The figures for each candidate were un
changed throughout the voting until on the
last vo'.e Hen a tor Bradley retired from the
chamber, thus reducing the vote by his
own ballot and that of Senator Taylor of
Tennessee, who waa paired with him.
Right at Pair Challenged.
Of many points of order raised the most
serious, presented by Mr. Root, related o
the right of a senator to refrain from vot
ing on account of a pair. Mr. Root oon
tended that under the rules all senators
are required to vots whan their names art
.Mr. Bailey replied that the immemorial
custom of the senate has so sanctioned
pairing as 10 renaer it equivalent to a
rule. He declared that he would rather
be expelled from the senate than obey an
order to break a pair. t
Mr. La Follette, In behalf of the pro
gressives, against whom the criticism was
directed, bitterly replied to Mr. Root:
i oo not recognise tne right of any
senator, he said, "to ruaka the point

. EL PASO-, May (Special Telegram.r
General Juan J. Navarro, Mexican veteran
of fifty years' fighting, unconditionally sur
rendered Juares, with 480 men, at 1:40
T"he surrender came after a half day's
fighting, during which the fire of the en
tire rebel army was concentrated on the
cuartel, the last stand of the federals. To
night ths grizsled old soldier is a guest of
Francisco I. Madero at the jefetura, where
Madero has made his headquarters.
Order has been restored. The peace com
missioners are already active. The Mader
ists hint that they will Bsmand the im
mediate resignation of President Dias as
the only condition of peace and suggest
that they may start at once on a triumph
ant march to Mexico City.
Caesar, in his palmy days, never received
a greater welcome than did Francisco I.
Madero, when with Mrs. Madero, he gal
loped into the captured city from his camp
.down ths river. A the "little redeemer-
rode up to the ou artel where General Na
varro and his officers were held prisoners,
every one of the S,0C0 or more rebels Lnrsw

the correspondents to return- with him.
I General., Madero addressed Navarro ana
his staff In ths kindest terms and aaaureo
thsm they would be shown every considera
tion and' courtesy. He said they had fought
dssperatoly for a cause they believed to be
just and did not realise, It was unjust. With
Mrs. Madero- hs personally escorted Gen
eral Navarro - to ths Jefetura, while his
men flourished their' guns and shouted
, Ntrscrs May Bo Traded. .
GoneraT Madero was 'too busy to talk
much. He said that General Navarro may
be traded for, Eduardo Hay,. one ot the In
aurreoto board of strategy, now a prisoner
in - the state penitentiary at Chihuahua.
Asked' If Navarro or his officers would be
shot, he said: ' .
"Not a man will be shot. H will trade
the captives for our men, held prisoners."
Asked what hs thought of the fight, Ma
dero said: ',.'.
' "All X can say Is 'busno.' " topaalsh for
General Navarro will' have much to ex
plain by reason of surrender'. . He la al
ready being criticised by army men for
giving up the fight. He held a strongly
fortified position, sod had plenty, of men
and vast amounts of ammunition. Yea
t st cay he declared he would die rather
than surrender. He explains that as tbe
rabels had cut the water mains', his gar
rison had had no water for. three days.

Nsxarro opened the door of cuartel to talk
with Colonel Garibaldi. A few momenjs
later General Oroxoo rode up and "General
Navarro handed over his sword.
It was a hsppy looking bunch of federals
who marched through the tinea of rebels
in front of the cuartel to become prisoners.
"Viva el constituelon!" they shouted as
they threw down their rifles and discarded
their federal uniforms, laughed and danced
with gl- Surrounded by hundreds of
rebels heavy with cartridges, the motley
crowd of prisoners, most of whom ere
dressed only In their underclothes and
crude sandals, were, marched doan. the
street. Women camp folio ers-raa behind,
filling tha air with walls, a slghl
to be forgotten. , . ' .
Plahtlaa Waa Severe.
The fight during the morning was se
vere. Smoke from the ruins of many
houses all over the , city wafted lastly
through the summer air. All of the bar-
; rlcadea were deserted and here and theie
a bloody form, stripped of its arms, lay In
pools of blood. Rebels flocked far down
town by hundreds. The cuartel and Mis
a Ion of Guadalupe were yet to be taken
Bharpshooters kept a steady stream of bul
lets sailing over tbe sandbags above the
church. Suddenly, about 11 o clock, the
federals on the church were seen climbing
down the ladders from the roof. They
ran pell mell toward the barracks. Many
were killed In the retreat. This left on:y
the cuartel In federal possession.
With wild shouts the insurrectos gained
points ot vantage, brought up their single
serviceable pleoe of artillery and poured
thousands of shots st the loopholes. Just
when the rebels were ready to send the
first shell through the brick walls of the
cuartel, the place surrendered.
After the Battle.
The rebels sem llks boys on a plcti
happy that their big battle is over. Thry
are commendably orderly. I saw consid
erable looting In the early morning, but
as soon aa officers arrived this was
stopped with a heavy hand.
It la a sorry looking city that has fallen
Into rebel possession. The postoffife Is
burned to ths ground, the bull ring Is
gutted, railroad shops and several private
houses are smoking ruins and business
houses and residences rendered unfit for
habitation by the heavy shot that pene
trated their walls. Here and there dead
lay hi the street, and a few wounded had
crawled to shady spots. Under one bar

dead federals that must have hten lytng
