A the truce until 8 o'clock to-morrow night. We agreed to
vVe will do anything to protect foreign interests. This govern
las notified the American Ambassador that if he feels insecu
the embassy we will place at his disposal big well protected
ters in Tacubaya or any other suburb, where he will be perl
safe. So far he has not seen tit to accept our ?fter, and we j
that he considers that, the embassy corps and the Americans
are staying there are not in danger. In a word, the attitude o
Mexican government, so far as the United States and other na
are concerned, probably is best expressed in a message which
President, sent directly to President Taft yesterday.*'
READY TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS
Ptesident Madero who had been interrupted a dozen time
messages from military headquarters. Cabinet ministers and ca
turned again to the Tribune correspondent, saying that he was r
to answer any questions that he could regarding the situation.
"In a general way, what you have there covers the eiemen
the situation which probably are of most interest in the Ut
States." said he. "If you care for details, more vital perhap
Mexicans. I can give yt)u those.
Understand that I am not trying to decry the seriousnes
the situation to the United States government. I mean what I
that there is not the slightest doubt that as conditions
are the government will be successful. Rebellion and civil
always are a serious matter, no matter how materially unimport
especially when the capital of a country is involved, but here
have a different situation.
"For a week the rebels have been in the Ciudadela. It is
that they are still there and that the government has not succeede
dislodging them. We have upon us a moral obligation not to exj
lives and property to more damage than is absolutely neces?
while subduing the ?ebellion. Were not that the case, and the \
ernment felt justified, which it does not. in proceeding as ruthle
as our position and forces would enable r.s to proceed we a

"But that is manifestly impracticable now. Then grant t
Diaz is still in the Ciudadela. What has he done? He has no n
men than he had a week ago. If anything, his forces are be
depleted. Not a single city, town or group of citizens, in or ou
the army, has pronounced for him. No sympathizers have cc
Hocking to his assistance. If the country was going to rise, isn'
reasonable to assume that it would do so in a week?
"I give you my word that none of the important cities, tow
districts or states which are reported to have gone against the g

of the fighting here, at least one rebel chieftain. Porras by name, 1

"It is true that a few soldiers pronounced for General Trev:
in New Laredo yesterday. What this amounts to I cannot s
At any rate. New Laredo is a very small place, of consequence pr
cipally because it is the gateway through which a great railw
system leaves and enters the country. Here is a telegram fr<
General Trevino himself disclaiming all knowledge of disloyalty a
protesting adherence to the government.
REPORTED UPRISINGS DENIED.
'In the State of Pueblo, which also was said to have depos
the loyal Governor and to have gone over to Diaz, nothing of t
kind occurred. The government and its friends, including the Gc
einor, still are in control and everything is peaceful. Here are te
grams from the States of Guerrero, Morelos and Mexico saying th
Zapatist rebels are quiet and are making no attempt to take adva
tage of the withdrawal of troops to the capital. Understand, the
are troops still in these states. The reported uprisings in Oaxai
Tehuantepec and other sections have not taken place, or at lea
if they have the government has not heard about it."
Here the correspondent started to ask ? question, but Preside
Madero interrupted:
"You must not believe that I have not a full appreciation
exactly the position we are in," said he. "I see the situation vei
clearly?just as clearly as any one?and in the light of what I kno^
understand, not what I deceive myself into thinking that I know,

will sustain it. Of that I am fully convinced.
"Frankly, for the Presidency itself, for the sake of holding tl
office, I mean, I do not care a rap, but I do care for the princip
involved in the question of whether I hold to my post in this tirr
of t'oublc. which is palpably the hardest thing to do. or choo*

concerned.
'I am remaining in office because right now is being decided th
fate of constitutional democracy in Mexico. That is what I am fighi
ing for. If I fall democratic principles, as you understand them i
ihe United States, and republican institutions in Mexico are dea
forever?not because it is I who am deposed, but because it is th
President, the onlv President Mexico ever had who was elected b
the honest, free votes of the people, who is deposed. That is th
whole issue "
PASSION FOLLOWED BY CALM
President Madero spoke earnestly and impassionedly, but sud
Jenly his passionate demeanor gave way and he relapsed into hii
usual manner, explaining that his vehemence arose from his zeal t<
make his attitude entirely, intelligible to the people of the Unitec
States.
"Let them see tha' it is a principle, not the Presidency, that J
am righting for." said he. "There is nothing unreasonable nor intol
erant in my attitude. I have acceded to every suggestion that has
been made to me looking toward improving the situation, if it was
at all feasible. When it was represented to me that grave danger
of American intervention existed unless some terms were made with
the rebels I delegated Mr. de la Barra to go to Diaz and to tell him
that the government was willing to arbitrate.
"What wa3 his reply? Even when told firmly, emphatically,
that adherence to his stand threatened to provoke intervention Diaz
said that he did not care if intervention did come, and that he would
consider no terms except the resignation of the President and the
w,hole Cabinet.
"I am willing to make any reasonable concessions and to do
anything I can. but I shall not resign."
This brought Up a story afioat that a demand had been made by
three foreign diplomats yesterday that the President resign. Madero
t?fused to reply to a question affecting this subject, but from another
sotrrce the Tribune correspondent learned that what took place was
substantially as follows:
Three diplomats, including the American Ambassador, and prob?
ably the German Minister. Von Hintze. and the Spanish Minister.
Cologan, told President Madero that, in their opinion, the only way
to obtain peace was fcr him to resign. In language ?aid to have been
Iktle short of peremptory the President informed the diplomats that
^'?v had no right to interfere to that extent in the affairs of Mexico '
e>
that he had a better knowledge of conditions than they and that i
necessary he would die at his post. The incident then closet
abruptly.
President Madero told the Tribune correspondent that it wa.
untrue that De la O, one of the principal rebel chieftains to the south
either was in the -city or was approaching it under orders from Diaz
"We have all avenues of approach to the city patrolled and
guarded," said Madero "Thus far there have been no considerable
bodies of rebels within many miles?no nearer than they have been
for months, in fact. A hundred of them attacked Ajusco (a small
town on the mountainside overlooking the city) yesterday, but.
although the garrison consisted of only twenty soldiers, they were
driven off."
President Madero asked that contradiction be made of reports
that matters between the United States and Mexico reached at any
time during the last week nearly as acute a stage as reported.
"Our information from the United States," sai?! he. "positively
is that no orders have been issued or are likely to be issued to land
marines or troops or to send them to the capital. It would be an
almost criminal act to do so, unless there is a much more grave
excuse or provocation than now exists. I cannot bring myself to
believe that your country will go that far unios things grow very
much worse "
When the Tribune correspondent was talking to Madero no
reply had been received by him to his message to President Taft.
It is impossible to ascertain specifically what caused the rupture
of the armistice, which was broken at 2 o'clock this afternoon by the
simultaneous discharge of the guns of Ciudadela and the investing
forces. The firing was not heavy, but it caused l hastv scattering
of thousands of persons who were taking advantage of the truce to
view the ruin resulting from the artillery duel.
The British Minister sent a cable message to his government
this morning saying that, although the firing had ceased, the situa?
tion still was very uncertain.
