AMERICANS FLEE
FROM WAR ZONE
IN MEXICO CITY
Ambassador Wilson Rents Houses in Suburbs
to Harbor Hundreds Who Fear Madero s
Attack on Diaz To-day.
DIPLOMATS WARNING IN VAINT
Day's Hot Fighting Ends Without Decisive Gains for
Either Side? Two American Women Victims
?United Stales Government Ready for
Action ii Forced to Intervene.
Another ciav of sharp fighting in the heart of the City of Mexico
ended last night with no material gains made by either the federal
troops or the rebels under General Diaz. More and heavier guns
were brought into use than on Tuesday, end much damage was
cic-n. to buildings in the centre of the city, but last night the oppos?
ing forces occupied practically the same positions as in the morn?
ing and as on Monday.
Two American women were victims of yesterday's firing. The
women were at work in their home, when ?i shell crashed into the
building and burst, killing one instantly, and the other dying a few
hours later
Protests against the indiscriminate sheHing of quarters occu?
pied by foreigners were mr.de to President Madero and General
Diaz by the American Ambassador and the German and Spanish
ministen, but the result was unsatisfactory. Each side sought to
shirt the blame to the other.
Madero has promised to make a combined assault on the rebel
positions to-day, but yesterday's operations indicate that Diaz has
much in reserve.
The British Legation was under the rebel fire for a time, but the
American Embassy is considered to be comparatively safe, and
women and children are being taken ther..
Although determined not to intervene in Mexico unless it be?
comes absolutely necessary, the administration is rushing battle-1
ships to Mexican waters to protect American lives and interests.
It has also made full preparations 10 throw troops into the republic
on the shortest notice. Thirty-five thousand men of the army, navy*
and marine corps are ready to start.
?n heotoAettt rr*M ?
Mexico City. Feb. 12.?Anticipating an early resumption of
hostilities to-morrow more than 600 Americans fled to-night from
their homes to temporary abodes in the outskirts of the city whero
the danger from the fire will be minimized.
Ambassador Wilson, on information from the National Palace,]
knew that the government planned a crushing blow, and, deter
mined to save the Americans if possible, he rented numerous
houses, to which, under flags of truce, agents of the embassy hur?
ried in automobiles as many women and children as would agree
to be transported.
The capital was quiet to-night, hut the fugitive foreigners. 4
Riled with horror by the Frightful bombardment of the last two days. ,
needed little urging.
About 10 o'clock to-night there was sharp action for a few
minutes by a federal battery against the .ebcl position, but at 11
o'clock the city was tranquil, with all the street lights out.
r. C _Ma ??> "i. Tribuna. I
Mexico City, via Galveston, Feb. 12.?The bombardment of the
Citadel, occupied by General Diaz, the rebel leader, which began
in the heart of the city this morning, lasted nearly two hours, ceas?
ing at 11 o'clock.
The federals stationed a battery in Pasejo de la Reforma, about
midway between the American F.mbassy and the British Legation,
and shelled the Citadel vigorously for an hour. The rebels replied
with small arms fire, the bullets raining about both buildings and
forcing the diplomats to keep inside.
Ex-President De la Barra went to the British Embassy with
his family last night, and is still there with Manuel Calero, formerly
Ambassador to Washington.
The heavy fire prevented access to the centre of the city from ?
the American colony surrounding the embassy until nearly noon.
A report received at noon said that General De la O and a large ,
force of rebels were entering the city from .he south by way of ?he
Piedad Causeway, but this was not confirmed.
Federal troops and artillery in the afternoon concentrated on
every side of the Citadel Judging from the movements of the
federals, as watched from the top of the cable building by the Trib?
une correspondent, this concentration was in pursuance of the plan
announced in the morning by the government to make a complete
investment of the arsenal preparatory to delivering one final, decisive
assault.
From noon until 5:30 o'clock there was no firing on either side,
ex?:ept an occasional splutter of rifles as federal or rebel sharp?
shooters essayed to snipe one another
Indications are there will be no further action before daylight
to-morrow.
Additional government troops numbering a thousand or more
reached the capital to-day. The federal forces are now estimated at
7.000. Unless Diaz gains assistance from outside, either from
Zapatistas or through defections to his standard of troops now loyal,
he cannot win. but the result is still doubtful. Any one of half a
dozen contingencies, if it occurs, may throw the victory to one side
or the other._
