trate the questions at variance between *he government and
rebels
De la Barra found the rebel chiefs in an uncompromising m
Diaz said: "You may tell the President that the only terms t
which we will cease fighting; or agree to an armistice of any le:
are the immediate resignations of him and Vice-Pr?sident Su
and the entire Cabinet."
De la Barra argued with Diaz a iong time, trying to alter
determination. He urged the imminence of international con
cations, to the injury of the republic, and other adverse consid
lions threatened if civil warfare continued in its present ph
Diaz continued obdurate, and in the end de la Barra was compe
to report lo Madero the failure of his mission.
In the mean time, the opposition members of the Senate
busy. They decided to meet in special session in the Chambe
Deputies this morning, access to the Senate Chamber in the
tiona? Palace being difficult on account of the Palace being in <
trol of the military.
The session was secret, but it is understood that from twei
five to thirty members were present of the total of fifty. Tl
was a long debate, the purport cf which was not known until
'ioors were opened.
One of the first peisons to whom the determination of the S
ate was communicated was Minister Cologan, at the Spanish Le
?orC ^hx> was about to start for the Palace to interview Madi
The minrster told the President what the Senate had done, an
ing at the Pala'e in advance of the Senatorial committee.
Madero's comment was brief and to the point:
"What nonsense! Why should I resign5 Will it help cor
tions permanently? Not at all. What I have gone through w
in the last year and a half would be the experience of any one v-,
might succeed me. I have fought thus far, and I might as 1
continue. It is my duty to stay at the head of the governme
where the people have elected me. I am willing to arbitrate
to do anything that a man may do honestly and properly to bri
peace to -my country, but I shall not act the part of a coward."
Soon afterward the committee presented itself at the Pah
and requested an audience with the President. Although thi
was good reason for believing Madero was in the Palace, the co
mittee was unable to gain access to him, an aid saying he v.
making a tour of the federal lines General Huerta and the co:
mittee started to look for him, but were unsuccessful.
On the way from the Palace some of the committee membe
headed by Sebastian Camacho. Vice-President of the Senate, stopp
at the cable office. Camacho, who is more than ninety years o
but remarkably vigorous, addressed a small crowd of Mexicans ai
foreigncis on what the Senate had done and why. He vehement
insisted that the retirement of President Madero was the only fea
ible pence measure. He urged Mexicans to work for peace.
"We know that orders have been issued in Washington," sa
Camacho, "foi the marines on the way to Vera Cruz not to ha
there, but to come directly to the capital. We are telling you th
so that you may be prepared for their arrival and understand i
Their ostensible mission will be to protect foreigners. While tl
errand of the Americans is one of amity, still the Mexican goveri
ment cannot regard their presence here as otherwise than an ui
friendly act"
Wnat legal warrant the Senate has, and what power is veste
in it to declare the office of President vacant, it is difficult to ascei
tain, but several authorities on the Mexican constitution assure
the Tribune correspondent that the Senate was not able to do mot
than it has done. If this is true, the Senate's action is devoid <
any importance, except for what sentimental effect it may hav
on the people.
President Madero intimated earlier in the week +hat the civ
functions of the authorities, legislative and otherwise, were sus
pended for the time being, the country being virtually under th
rule of military necessity. This being the case, Madero probabl'
considers any action by the Senate or Chamber of Deputies with
out effect, and properly to be ignored.
No information is obtainable at either the American Embass1
or elsewhere as to the authenticity of the statement made bi
Camacho that American marines have been ordered to proceec
directly to the capital. Little credence is given to it.
A panic was caused this forenoon in that portion of the Amer
kan colony of which the embassy is the centre, by the appearanct
of a battery of field pieces in the square near the embassy. Th<
guns were unlimbered apparently in readiness to open fire on th<
Citadel.
The battery was in line with the Hotel de Geneve, filled bv
Americans, English, French and Germans. Shells from the Citadel,
replying to this battery, would have devastated scores of American
residences, besides making the embassy untenable.
Ambassador Wilson promptly sent a personal demand to the
commander of the battery to move his guns further away. He
followed this by a message to General Huerta to the same effect
Residents in the section began to pack their valuables in readiness
to flee if the guns opened fire.
General Huerta dispatched an aid to order the guns to their
former station in the Paseo de la Reforma, and told the am?
bassador no artillery would be allowed in that section of the Amer?
ican colony.
