Reyes' meads Ptwcr Saw.
General Reyes friends are not so numer
ous as they were before he was sent out
of the country. That any effort will be
made to prevent him from reaching the
capital Is not expected: but stories of plots
both In his favor and against him are
heard daily. Thla afternoon a newspaper

Among theae clubs there Is one formed
today whose membership Is entirely femi

club," after Madsro's wife.
Plot to Dynosalte Madero.
EL PASO, Tex., June I. Soon after the
departure of Francisco I. Madero for Mex
ico City today details were made known
of an alleged attempt to dynamite him.
Tha plot, according to the Insurrecto po
lice, was to have been carried out during
the ball which Sen or Madero attended In
Juares last night.
Cruxrey, former jefe politico of the town
of CuaJaJupe, opposite Fabena. whom Ma
dero deposed, has been locked up In
Juares and planed Incommunicado and In
surrecto secret service men have been de
tailed to make other arrests.
When tba plot waa disoovered. enough
dynamite was being carried Into th ball
room to blow trp the entire building;. About
BOO people. Including Senor Madero and hla
wife, ware the principals and witnesses of
a grand march, when about 11 o'clock a
man was stopped at the entrance. Oat of
the man's pocket was pulled a large tin
can, which was filled with dynamite and
provided with m. time fuse. The taiurreeto
polloo sssBrt that had the dynaratto eg
pioded m ths ball room no one would have
Opinion to expressed by tha Juares in.
thorttlea that the presence of ths dynamite
at the ball Is only aa elaborate conspiracy,
formed tn Mexico City and other places,
by a political parry opposed to Madero and
that further developments are expected,
Ths departure of Senor Madero left Juarex
m charge of General Jose da la Los Blanco
and LCOg tawurrectos.
Aa Impressive Incident of the departure
of Madero was ths farewell between him
and General Navarro, former-federal com
mander, who surrendered Juares. . When
Madero saw ths old federal commander In
the crowd ho ran forward to embrace him.
Later General Navarro mounted the train
platform and they embraced again, the
Insurrectos applauding. Madero expressed
ths hops of seeing Navarro In Mexico CItr.
General Navarro In turn expressed thanks
ror nis escape from Juares.
ocoor aiaaero nimaeif waa greatly
pleased with ths prospects of Ms reaching
Mexioo City. "It la, of course, the climax
of ths revolution." he said. "It seems one
triumph Is completed; we began our Cght

to me stronghold of those, who were onos

hare believed that so great a change could
coma to a country, when ths country was
airiaea between bitter enemies. Now
trust all ths hatred will be forgotten, for
aner au it was g hatred merely for a so
cial condition. As Mexicans we are alt
brothers. I trust tranquillity win spread
inrougnout tno land."
Just before ths time est for bis learlns

TAFT WITHHOLDS RECORDS

WHAT BECAME OF $1,600 BALANCE
Artist Paid for Palatlaar Day's Pte
tre from the Emergeaer Faad
Secretary Ksel Acta by
WASHINGTON'. June . A controversy
over the executive's right to withhold con
fidential papers from a congressional prob
ing committee was precipitated today by
the refusal of Secretary of EtateJKnox. on
the Instruction of President Taft. to place
before the house committee on expenditures
in . ths Stats department books showing
the record of the payment for tha portrait
of former Secretary of State Day.
The committee Is seeking to discover
what became of the $1,900 balance of the
fcLtfg voucher drawn for the payment of
the1 portrait. Artist Rosenthal received only
tv for his work and tha H.600 la unac
The president held that the &4H was
aid out of the emergency fund for unfor
seon emergencies In the diplomatic and
consular service and for extending diplo
matic Intercourse with foreign nations,
which congress had provided need not be
accounted for If the president certifies that
an Item should be paid from this fund.
President Roosevelt had made a notifi
cation and President Taft hesitated to go
back of that notification.
Weeld Reveal Other Items.
Furthermore, Secretary Knox explained
to the committee. It wee-Improper to pro
duce the books because thereby other un
disclosed Items of expenditure would be re
vealed. Secretary Knox aald he was directed
to complete bis Investigation Into what be
came of the money and to report the facts
to the president.
Chairman Hamlin of Missouri threatened
to take the matter to the floor of the house.
A colloquy between Hamlin and the secre
tary finally resulted In the suggestion that
the chairman might be allowed personally
to Inspect the particular record. This course
probably will be followed.
Mr. Hamlin questioned Secretary Knox
closely ks to what J urtlfl cation there was
for paring for a portrait out of a secret
fund set aside for unforseen emergencies
and for extending diplomatic utarbourse.
Mr. Knox said it bad been the practice
sines USA. He Informed the committee that
no trace had yet been found of the S2.4St
voucher which Mr. Rosenthal said he signed
In blank after receiving the I860 personal
check of former Chief Clerk Michael, now
consul general to Calcutta.
Kaex Writes to Taft.
Secretary Knox In hla letter to President
Taft, dated today, aald:
'This expenditure was covered by a regu
lar certificate Issued under and pursuant
to the authorisation of section 91 of ths
revised statutes. Inasmuch as a compli
ance with this summons In the matter of
producing the records containing state
ments regarding this voucher would be to
place before the committee accounts which
have been certified to by one of your prede
cessors. President Roosevelt, aa not proper
under section 31 to be mads public I have
to request your direction as to what iny
action In obedience to this summons ill all
President Taft in his reply said that In
view of the facts and circumstances and
lhat tha emergency fund expenditure for
this period have, under the express au
thority of congress, been certified by Secre
tary Hay "for my predecessor. President
Roosevelt, as being of such a character
aa ought not to be made public, I feel that
nothing but aome extraordinary circum
stance would Justify me la directing you
to take such records before the committee
named, because the discretion thus exer
cised under the statute should. In my Judg
ment, in general be conclusive and btndlng
upon this point."
Secretary Knox, who was secretary of
stats about the tlma the portrait waa paid
fur .will testify next Tuesday as to what
he may know about the ease.

Attack on the management of the county
hospital waa carried Into a discussion of
figures snd accounts before the county
commissioners Friday afternoon by John
C. Lynch, chairman of the cotnmlttee on
finance, who has been punhing the investi
gation of the Institution.
That W9 buKhels of potatoes had been
bought at 90 cents a buehel. when the
market price was only W cent, was one
of the charges made by the commissioner.
He raid that the highest prices had been
paid for fruit. Drug bills, he declared,
were brought In months after the articles
had been used, when it was Impossible to
check them up.
"I'm. not after any man s scalp." said
Lynch, looking at Thomas O'Connor, In

The report returned by Commissioner
O'Connor In the Investigation Instigated

Commissioner Lynch as inaccurate and not
to be depended upon. The report showed
an increase In inmates great enough to
account for ths increase In expense that

Lynch brought tn a recommendation
from Georgs Antbes of the county audit
ing department, that the report was un
reliable, as no dally record was kept of
the Inmates, and the total provided for
during the month might be much, larger
or much less than any snap enumeration
taken at ths firet of every month.
Lynch proposed that hereafter the super
intendent at the hospital be instructed to
make a daily record of the number of In
mates, so that at the end of the month
be could report to the board the number
of Inmates and tha number of days each

the delivery of speeches and special ad

should not be hard to Induce the pro

C. 1L McLellan, who Is now repre
sented on Ihe American siage by two
muslcsl comedies, "Marriage a la Carte"
and "The Pink Lady" In New Tork
City, is eager to have one of hla serious
plays. "The Jury of Fate," acted In this
country- H. H. Irvtng gave It here about
five years ago; and those who then saw
the play are of the belief that Its first
night failure was wholly due to the con
trariness of a mechanical and lighting de
vice that failed to work, with tbe result
that a "da-i: change" that was calculated
for less than thirty seconds required forty,
five nvnutt-s by the time the stage hands
got things in order. The play tells of the
plea of a man who has misspent his life
for another chance In order that ha may
profit by the mistakes. Ha Is given the
chance, and makes a worse muddeJ of
things In the second life.
