Deposed President Accused of Shooting Colonel
Riveroll and of Attempts on Huerta's Life,
Including Effort to Poison Him.
?MANY MORE KILLINGS FEARED
i _. _
Finding of "Death List" in National Palace May Lead
to Reprisals?Arrests Made in New Plot?
American Flag Cheered by Excited
Ihrongs in the Streets.
Mexico City. Feb. 19.?Francisco i. Madero, deposed from the
' Presidency yesterday, will be exiled. Arrangements have been made
for his departure from the capital for Vera Cru-* to-night. From
I there he wll s*iil for some Kuropr-m port.
Madero will be accompanied by his wife, and perhaps by his
fa'tier and o?hc: members of his family.
His loyal aid, Capiain Federico Montes, also will go, but in the
capacity of a ^iiard. The party will proceed to Vera Cruz under
Chigre.;' met late this afternoon to act on the Presidency. The
forced resignations of Madero as President and Suarez as Vice
President were presented and formally accepted, and then Victoriano
Huerta WB9 e'ected Provisional President and was sworn in at 11
o'clock thi-; evening.
Huerta succeeded Pedro Lascurain. having first been .appointed
a Cabinet minister, so that the legal succession to the Presidency
wonld be n-ainiaineci.
Pedro Lascurain took the oath as Pres'dcnt ad interim in hit?
capacity as Minister of Foreign Affairs, his naming being incidental
to ihe siicce.-~.ion of Huerta.
It has developer: that the exile of Madero is not certain, for
the present at least.
At the instigation of the government Madero has been formally
held responsible for the death of Colonel Riveroll, which occurred
at the palace at the time of Maderc's arrest.
Conrlictins; stoiies are in circulation regarding the slayer oi
Riveroll, but it is officially stated that Madero shot him with a pistol
In a statement made to-night Genera' Huerta says that twe
attempts were made against his life before the arrests, and he at?
tributes both of them to the Maderos.
The first attempt was made by a sha.pshooter. who tried to
pick him off while ir. the palace. This General Huerta laid at the
' door of the ex-President.
The second attempt was made at the banquet which culminated
! in Gustavo Madero's arrest. Huerta says he was repeatedly urged
to drink poisoned wine from a bottle. He was suspicious, and re?
fused to do so. An analysis of the wine showed that it was charged
with cyanide of potassium.
The members of the Cabinet and most of the other prisoners
?Acre released this morning. Francisco Madero, Jos? Pino Suarez.
the Vice-Presideni. and Federico Gonzalez Garza, Governor of the
federal district, were the only important prisoners held.
Gustavo Madero, brother of the deposed President, regarded as
moie powerful than Francisco Madero, was shot soon after 9 o'clock
this morning by the men who had overthrown the Madero gov
? With his brother, Gustavo was taken to the Citadel this morn?
ing. He was extremely unpopular, and after his arrest yesterday
afternoon a strong guard of rurales had to be placed over him to?
prevent an assault on him by the excited throngs in the streets.
Soon after his arrival at the Citadel Gustavo Madero was told
that he must submit to the notorious "fugitive law." This meant
that he was to be turned loose to run the gantlet of rifle fire of his
guards. He had run only a few steps when he fell, riddled with
It is feared that the ex-President's bi other will not be the only
Maderist to meet death. It is reported that among the document?
found in the National Palace after Madero's arrest was a list headed
Those Who Ought to Die.'' and this is thought likely to lead to?
reprisals by some of those who were apparently marked for death.
There were on the proscribed list, it is ?aid, the names of twen?
ty-two well known men. including Francisco de la Barra, Jesus
Flores Magan, Manuel Calero, Alberto Garcia Granadas and Dr.
De la Barra had for several days believed he was in danger of
assassination, and had taken refuge in the British Legation, whero
he heard that numerous threats had been made to capture him.
Already forced to face plots, the new administration caused the
arrest to-night of General Francisco Romero, who is accused of
complicity with Francisco Cosi? R?belo in planning a new revolt.
The plot involves a group of rurales.
It is believed Huerta's Cabinet will be composed as follows:
Foreign Minister.Francisco de la Barra
War Minister.General Manuel Mondragon
Finance Minister.Carlos G. de Cosi?
Minister of Fomento.Alberto Gil
