MADERO HOT LIKELY
TO ESCAPE WITHOUT
v TRIALOF SOMMIND
(Continued from rage One.)
msnt was considering the advlsablUy. of
bringing him: before a lunacy commission.
Humors that all was not going Well
between General Huerta ana Felix iJlas
were discounted today by the fact that
tha two held frequent conferences re
garding the conduct of affairs and often
addressed each other by their first
jnlted Statea'AinbassaJlor "Vllson, who
has Uken such-a-lteen.. Interest In the
establishment of.tjie .riep, administration. '
was'ln council with both' Oe'ner'al lluetta
and Dlas and was made the recipient of
frank confidences by both.
One Change In Cabinet.
The cablncet at first agreed upon by
Huerta and Dlas was confirmed In al
respects except In connection with the)
ministry of finance. In whth .Escfulval
Obregoii was substituted 'J0r Carlos O.
Ds Coslo. The names'f,fAe.tortfoUa
were suggested partly pMtW Anil PhfJf
by Huerta. -
Apparently none of thosa closeyti;n
nected with the new administration 'feaf.
any untoward occurrence. The. ' senate
appears to be In thorough accordfyyltb'
the new government, but there' is . jv
such hearty co-operation from the, dep
uties. Many of tho deputies belong to
the modern radical school and, are In
clined to look on General Huerta and his
government with considerable susVlclnn.
The wording of the Jolnt'reslgnatlqn of
Franclaco Madero and Jose Pino Suarex
was made public today. It Is In marked
contrast to Uie usual verbose documents
written In such cases. It says:
"In view of the events which hava oc
curred from first to last In th nation
and for the greater peace of our country
We make this formal resignation of, our
posts of president and vice president.'
Tha new administration Is utilising
' practically alt the old machinery of gov
ernment, although numerous officers
wcr removed temporarily from their
jfosUj mong these were' the chiefs nt
departments, whom the secretary of wur
placed finder nominal arrest, but released
after brief detention.
Dta Denies nesponslblllty.
Felix Diss today denied responsibility
for the execution of Gustavo Madero ahd
Adolfo Basso, superintendent of the na
tional palace. Tha official report on the
death of Gustavo Madura says:
"He was' "being relnoved from one wart
of the arsenal to another wheti h mad
e dash forllberty. -The officers In charge
tired at him and killed him.' Adolfo
Basso, an old man. was killed Inside the
rebel lines. , ,
Tha death of Gustavo Madero. Is still a
chief topic of. conversation among the
populace. Many people today sought for
souvenirs of tho dead politician and one
person paid $15 for a fragment of his eye
glass. Juan Sanchez Atcona. private secretary
of Francisco Madero, and Jesus ITreueta,
itadtro's chief supporter In the' Chamber
of Deputies, were added to the list of
prisoners yesterday. They had escaped
from tho cljy In an automobile during tha
upheaval at the national palace, but were
captured between here and the coast.

Institution waa being crippled because of
the lack of funds nnd ho hoped that tho
senate would be courteous and lend i
helping hand 1 nthe hour of distress.
The senato la republican and the penl
tentlary. democratic, hdt the senator
thought that, the senate should do some
thing' a'nyhow to relieve the distress.
The warden .of the penitentiary Is a
very able young man, but unfortunately
a democrat," said the senator, "but wo
ought to get busy Just tho same and
meet tha situation." The senate said that
the deficiency was caused In part by the
failure of tho Institution to get sufficient
nay. for furnishing electric current to the
state liouse and 'other ' places.
"'Why. right here In the state house."
said the senator, with a wave of his
hand, "the lights are burning iit midday,
while the groat shining orb of day is

they are simply to lasy to press a Mlt
