threatened firemen's strike loft the
Broadway Central Hotel late tliki after
noon, following a long conference with

Not Ionic liefore this statement was

Manhattan,' "hut I may eay that condi
tions now prevailing are the most
gruve, compllcalod and threatening that
4iave confronted us in fifteen years."
From other sources It was teamed
that while the threatened tie-up Is crit
ical In the extreme, It is not probable
ttiat the strike call will come to-day
So long as the Government offices aro

"Froon Your Excellency's telegram, which reached mo the fourteenth,
it appeared that your Excellency was somewhat misinform, -u as to tho
policy of the Un'.ted States toward Mexico, which has been uniform for
two years, or as to the naval or other measures thus far taken, which
are measures of natural precaution. The Ambassador telegraphed that
when you were good enough to show him your telegram to me he
pointed out this fact.
"Your Excellency musL therefore, be aware that the reports which
appear to have reached you that orders have already been given to
land forces, were Inaccurate. The Ambassador, who Is fully Informed.
Is nevertheless again instructed to afford you uny desirable Informa

two years of proof of patlnnce and good will.
"In view of the special friendship nnd relations between the two
countries I cannot too strongly Impress upon Your Excellency the vital
Importance of Uie early establishment el that real pence nnd order
which this (iovernment hns so long hoped to see, both because American
citizens and their property must be protected and respected, and also
because this nation sympathizes deeply with the afflictions of the Mexi

MADERO BLAMES DIAZ.
American residents, with their nerves shaken by the almost constant
explosion of shrapnel during the past week, departed yesterday and to
day in the direction of Vera Cruz. The danger zone was practically
deserted to-day, except by the soldiers on the tiring line and superior of
ficers passing Irom post to post.
President Madero has issued an official bulletin saying that Gen. Diaz
broke the agreement for a twenty-four-hour truce yesterday. The rebel
General, according to Madero, placed artillery at the intersection of
Haldoas and Victoria streets and opened tire upon the Federals, thu. com
pelling his own troops to renew the fighting from their side.
President Madero also announced that he had received a cable from
Washington stating that I majority of the American Congress was op
