CITY OF MEXICO, February 15. I
(Special to The Advertiser) It is(
strongly intimated that tho special
mooting of tho senate called this morning
insisted on President Madero's
resignation. Many of the senators did
not attend as they declared they wero

meeting of tho senate that it was by no
means certain Madoro would resign.
Tho President, he said, was to end the
difficulty in a patriotic manner, if possible,
wltuout further bloodshed, but
this appeared improbable
Francisco Do La Barra, former provisional
President, professed ignorance
Ho declared the question of his resign
nation had been submitted to President
Madero and that the matter at present
had gone no further,
A few minutes later Do La Barra,
accompanied by General Felipe Angela,
a federal commander, went to the palace
for a conferenco with Madoro.
Following tho conference Do La Barra
announced that Madero had authorized
him and General Angela to confer with
Felix Diaz and Gen. Manuel Mondragon
on tho question of arranging an armistice.
Madero proposed tho naming of a
commission bv each Dartv to contrivo
a plan for a solution of tho situation. I
Diaz replied that ho could not consider .
an armistice and that ho would enter '
into no negotiations for pcaco until ho
was officially notified of the resignation
of President Madero, the Vice President

Just where tho blamo for tho tragedy

.of tho necessity for making nioru drastic
regulations concerning tho passago

and 11 woman's lifo would not

and when about opposito Albert
Afong 's residence, the second houso

en routo down toward town.- He says
ho honked his horn several times as tho
two vehicles approached and tworved

the town mildly, but as tho oil tanker

It was tho only alarm given, Tho
police, however, recognized in it tho

The first alarm was recognizod as a
