A HOT FIGHT AT JUAREZ
The Fiercest Cattle of the Revolu-
Mexico City, Mexico.—President
Diaz has issued an official proaounci-
mento announcing that he would con-
tinue war on the rebels in order to
restore peace in the country. He
will resign when he has restored
peace but not before then.
The statement covers the filial mes-
sage sent to Madero and was issued
only after a long conference between
DeLallarra, Liniantour and the presi-
A complete change of front has be-
come manifest among the better
classes in this city. The determina-

the bitter end has encourgaed the
professional men of the city and has

put down the trouble with loyal

Has Taken Place at
That Celebrated Debate Might Be Settled if the Argument Became Heated.
El Paso, Tex.—Peace negotiations
between the insurreetos and the fed-
eralists in Juarez are ended and Fran-
cisco I. Madero, leader of the insur-
gents announces his intention of
marching at once on Mexico City, the
capital. In a manifesto to his troops
he declared that he would make no
effort to capture Juarez because of
its proximity to El Paso and the dan-
ger of an offense to the United States.
BULLETS RAINED IN EL PASO
DURING JUAREZ BATTLE FIVE
AMERICANS WERE KILLED.
THINK KNOX 1VTAV RESIGN
Friction Between the State and War
Department May Cause Secre-
tary to Retire.
Washington, D. C.—The happenings
in Mexico brought out fresh rumors
that friction exists between the war
department and the state department
over the handling of affairs connected
with the Mexican situation.
A report also was persistent that
Secretary Knox's resignation in the
near future would not cause great sur-
prise. Xo confirmation was obtain-
able. A suggestion that Secretary
Knox might retire from the state
portfolio was current even before the
Mexican situution arose.
NO BAIL FOR J, J, McNAMARA
Will Not be Granted Liberty on Bond
While 19 Murder Indict-
l.os Angels, California Judge liord-
well refused to place bail upon the
indictment which charges J. J. Mc-
Namara and O. E. McManigal with
dynamiting the Llewilyn iron Works
in this city last Christmas morning.
For two hours Attorney Job Ilarri-
man argued that bail should be fixed
upon this charge despite the fact that
McNamara is held on 19 other indict-
ments which charge murder—an un-
bailable offense in this state. No plea
was made for McManigal as he has
not yet been arraigned in court.
Madero Said the Attack Was Unau-
thorized and Troops Were
El Paso, Texas.—The streets of
Juarez are littered with the dead and
dying. Since early in the morning
when tne insurgents began what Gen.
Madero terms "an unauthorized as-
sault," the battle has been raging.
To the north of the Rio Grande
i.ve Americans are dead, slain by
bullets from across the international
line. Many other Americans are
wounded by stray bullets some in the
very business heart of El Paso.
When the bullets began to fall like
hail in the streets of El Paso, Col.
Steever, in command of the Fourth
cnited States cavalry, sent couriers
to Generals Madero and Navarro bear-
ing this message:
"In the name of the president of the
United States I hereby protest against
men in your command handling their
arms in such a way that bullets fall
into Cnited States territory as is hap-
Hut the bullets continued to fall and
Col. Steever wired to Washington for

THE STOCKMEN WANT TO KNOW
They Believe They Are Not Getting
Their Share of the High Cost
Topeka, Kansas.—The executive
committee of the Kansas Live Stock
association is planning an investiga-
tion to find out who gets the money in
handling meat after the feeder is
paid and before the consumer buys
his porterhouse steak. Some of the
cattlemen believe they are getting
the short end of the money.

At least five people have been kill-

since k..e skirmishing began and about
15 wounded, while the loss on the bat-
| tie field is variously estimated at from
I 30 to 60 dead on both sides and about
1 T: to 100 wounded.
All day long the battle rased with
the insurreetos swarming through the
streets of Juarez and meeting the
heavy fire of the federals \sith an
equally vigorous volley of musketry.
The rebels claim the town and
while it is true that they actually
j control more territory, the position of
the federal forces is so well forti-
fied as to be almost impregnable.
The rebels have forced the^ghting
in the face of the deadly lire of the
federal machine guns. They dare not
gataer in too great number for an at-
I tack on the federals because the ar-
! tillerymen of Gen. Navarro many
| times demonstrated the accuracy of
, their range when they shelled adobe
' houses behind which insurreetos had
sought protcetion a half mile from
j Juarez while skulking along the river
front. Gen. Navarro is said to have
mines under most of the houses iu
| Juarez and when he gots word of an
insurrecto gathering, he is believed to
be able to inffict a terrible slaughter
| of them.

Novelties Introduced During the Win-

There are some novel veils that

I larity and will continue to do so dur-
ing the early summer months.
