Ktulllo Madero was formerly chief of
'uuik'H In the State of Honom. He
was In IiIm thirty-third year, being seven
veats younger than his brother Fran
cisco, the fortnor President.
Kmlllo was not nn Insurrecto. He
fought In many engagements under
Gen. Ilucrtu. with whom he was at
one time on the most friendly term.
With the passing of another day In
thLs troubled capital the Huerta Ad
ministration cecms to be mnro strongly
entrenched in control than ever, Hut
this has been accomplished only by the
continued show of force. Troops occu
pied tho principal streets and every In
dication of trouble was tho occasion for
harsh dealing; by the soldiers.
Tfce Indications art to-night 'that
President Huerta and his supporter!!
are too strong to be dislodged. Th
sentiment Is growing In their favor.
Adherents to their cnuso are coming
over In largo numbers and It Is pre
dicted that In a few days they will be

Revolt Is smouldering In the out

tho capital warrant It strong detach

nit the scores of little disturbances.
Alberto Madero, an uncle of the slain
President, has probably been slain to
day at Chihuahua. Tho deed Is said
to have been accomplished In much the
same way as the killing of Francisco
Madero and Vice-President Pino (Juarez.
It was reported at first that Gov. Gon
zales of Chihuahua, a strong Madero
sympathizer, had also been put to death,
hut this was later denied.
Gen. Kabugo, the military Governor
of Chihuahua, sent word to El Paso to
day that Gonzales was still alive and
unmolested In prison.

Tho iron hand of tien. 1 1 net m and
Mis counsellors was apparent In the
capital city to-day. While tho men of
'hu new Government were claiming
that the backbone nf tliu resistance to
their reglmn was broken, there Is still
.i great feeling of discontent and heavy
patrols of truopH occupied the principal
streets nil the day to prevent any dis
order that might assume returns pro
portions. Hut the discontent Is all below the
.surface. It needs a great Incentive for
the dissatisfied citizens to rise against
Huerta, for they ure much in fear of the
forceful measures that the Government
has announced it will employ. Mur
muring could lie heard in various
places, hut the sight of Huerta's soldiers
or tho municipal police wan sufficient
to quell any likelihood of open rebellion.
The military dictatorship Is having

uprisings, no matter what the cust in
olnod or lives. The capital is very
heavily gariisoned and troops are still
encamped in the public streets, pre
pared for everything. It is estimated that
the leaders could assemble nn army of
o.OOO men within a few hours, and that
idono is sufficient to keep small hands
of rebels away from the city.
There was grim humor In the ap
pearance to-day throughout the capital
nf political placards announcing the can
didacy for the Presidency of Mexico of
Jen. Diaz, Itodolfo Iteyes. Vasquez
Gomez and Gen. Orozco. The volatile
Mexicans, apparently forgetting for the

lulmcd as their Chief Executive but a
short time before, hod been shot down

peace of the country, went ubnut the

However, there are rumors lo-nlght
that the truco of Iluer'a and Zapata
cannot last. The rebels are said to
have Imposed such stringent conditions
that the Government will soon lie
obliged to cast them off and thus re
new the conflict.
Emlllo Madero is now considered the
greatest menace to tho Government.
He has gathered a force of about 2.000
men and 'has declared his intention of

but he occupies n strong position In the
mountains near the capital. Hands of
Maderistas are said to be leaving the
city to Join him.
There was a report to-day that Gen.

by tint desertion of two of 'his Ministers,

Fate Is Severely Criticised.
Washington. Feb. 25. Though not
yet rocognlzed by the United States the
Iluertu Government In Mexico to-day
enjoys tho strong support of the Wash-
t lugton Government.
That It has this support is not be
cause of any particular partiality for
Gen. Huerta, but because the provi
sional Government of which he Is tho
President Is now tli onlv rstnlillnherl

to which the United States can look for

istration In Washington that the Huerta
J Government will prove Itself equal to
the occasion. Tim sooner It can cntab

j the better will the officials of tho Taft
I Administration be pleased. Mettnwhlc
these ofllcluls are disposed to give the
Huerta Government its moral support
, ami friendly sympathy
Wilson's .Statement a surprise.
The statement given out by Ambassa
dor Wlhon In Mexico city last night was
entirely on his own initiative and with
out instructions from the State Depart
ment. The exceedingly friendly tone of
the Ambassador's statement, which ex
pressed his belief that the provisional
Government In Mexico was innocent of
the chargb that It had Instigated the
killing of Madero und Pino Suarez,
caused somo surprise hero to-day in un
olllclnl quarters and the Ambassador's
action was criticised as hasty and 111
At the State Department, howeer,
j there was shown u disposition to excuse
nun ror miming a statement no lrlenaiy
to the still unrecognized Government
nnd quite contrary to public opinion In
the United Stutes. It was pointed out
that the Amluissador Is actually on the
scene of the recent disturbances In
.Mexico and prolsibly has more detnlls
and more accurate knowledge of the
'needs of the situation than Is had In
I Wilson llreoniinriiils llet'OHnltlon,
As a matter of fact Amliassador Wll
. son has recommended that the Huerta
'Government receive recognition by the
' United States at a very early date. It
lis understood here that tho entire Diplo
matic Corps was in accord with his
lecommendntlon to the State Depart
ment. Likewise, according to Informa
' Hon received here to-day, the entire
American colony Is u unit in faxor of
early recognition of the Huerta Gov
'eminent by the United States.
This opinion held by Americans and
I other foreigners In Mexico Is not due
i to any partisanship but to the Intensely
practical xlow which they hax-e of the
, .Mexican situation. The American colony
is especially desirous that everything be
done by the United States and Its rep
resentatives In Mexico to strengthen the
new Government In order that It muy
be In a position at the earliest possible
moment to afford security for llfo and
property in Mexico. Though the Am
bassador does not go to tho extremes
of some members of tho American
colony In this view of the situation, It is
known that he Is very sympathetic with
them In their attitude. This sympathy
with the opinion of the Americans In
Mexico, it is understood here, was re
sponsible for the statement Issued by
the Ambassador last night.
Oflelal Action Withheld.
At the State Department It is con
sidered that not only the members of
the American colony but the Ambas
sador himself Is too close to the local
situation in Mexico city to appreciate
the broader view which tho United
States Government must take of the
matter of the recognition of the Huerta
Consequently tho recommendation of
Ambassador Wilson that tire new Gov
ernment lie recognized immediately has
not been acted upon favorably. Recog
nition ha not been refused, but it Is
being withheld and will be withheld
until conditions in Mexico become more
stable. Though it l;i bolleved here that
the Huerta Government Is in u fair
way to extend its authority over all
Mexico, the situuliou Is regarded us
altogether too uncertain to permit a
formal recognition at this time.
To Stute Department officials ono of
the most encouraging aspects of the
present situation in .Mexico is the fact
that the Huerta Governmont has given
ashiirances that American claims will
receive prompt attention. Prior to the
fall of the Modern Government this was
one of Die most exasperating phases of
the situation with which tho United
States hud to contend. The request of
Ambassador Wilson for consideration
and prompt action upon tho American
claims and other mutters presented were
treated by the former ofllclnls almost
with indifference, The now Govern
ment, however, hna promised to take
up with great promptness these long
pending questions and others that have

REVOLT NOT ENDED,
SAYS GEN. GARIBALDI
(Jrandsoii of Italian I.ihcnttor
Thinks United States Should
WAS FJUEXD OF M AHEH0I
evolutionary Rule of Ucuernl
Huerta Cannot Last.
Gen Iticciottl Garibaldi, who foiiRht
with Francisco Madero In the revolt
ngalnst l'ortlrlo Dlar. and until recently
took part In tho war against the 1 urks
ns nn officer in the Greek army, arrived
last nlk'ht by the North German I.loyd
liner Kronprlnzessin Cecllle. ,
When ho sailed from Chcibouri; ho
had the impression that Madero would
win over Diaz and ho was tinuwarc until
ho arrived at Quarantine that Gustavo
Madero had leen killed on the day after
the Kronprlnzessin departed from Cher-
bourK. He learned by wireless ns the
liner neared this coast that President
Kranclsco Mudero and Vice-President
Pino .Suarcz had been slain on Saturdny
nlKht and ho was much disturbed by the
news, havinsT known both men Inti
mately. Gen. Garibaldi Is a grandson 0f the
Itallun liberator. Gen. Glueppe Gari
baldi, and he was on the ship's list un
der his Krandfnt her's name. He is the
son of fllccluttt Garibaldi, the only sur
viving son of the liberator. Yoiiiik Gen.
Garibaldi said that he abandoned all his
Interests in Mexico to respond to the
call of his futher, who orKaulzed a le
tfnn to fight for Greece.
"I huvo returned to see what I can
save out of tho wreck. I fear that it will
not bit much, as It looks as lf there were
going to be uninterrupted strife In Mex
ico unless the t'nlted States steps In for
a time somewhat after the manner it
did In the Honduras trouble and allows
the people to have a frco and fair elec
tion. I think It would not lie safe for
me to go to Mexico Just now, as I might
be treated like Mudero, who was simply
murdered In cold blood."
As tho Oeneral was talking the Kron
prlnzessin Cecelia wa moving out of
Quarantine. Ho had not been told of
the slaying of Madero's brother, Gus
tavo, and ho remarked with ferencj
that he thanked God that there was
still "one Mudero, Gustavo, the. Wrong
est of thorn all. who can avenge the
death of President Madero, find he can
call on me at any time to assist him."
"Gustavo Madero Is dead," a ship
news reporter remarked.
Gen. Garibaldi threw up bis hunds
and gasped. He appeared to think, ns
his subsequent remarks Indicated, that
thoro was no one else who had a chance
of success against the revolutionary cle
ment. President Madero. Oen, Gari
baldi aald, had been too gcntlo with his
enemies. His faith In human nature was
misplaced In Mexico, as the results had
shown. If he had dealt with his enemies
aa tho present military enemies of lil
admlntatratlon dealt with lilm, there
would have been no revolt,
When ho left Mudero to go to Greece.
Oarllmldl said, he had urged the Presi
dent to take, extra precautions for his
own safety nnd peremptory measures
against his enemies. Ho had advised
the court-martial of Gon. Diaz linnio
dlately after his capture. Oen. Manuel
Mondrngon had been the brains of the
revolutionary party. The wholo enter
prise. Including tho doing nway with
President Madero. "had been planned
with cool blooded dctormlnitlon."
About tho Interference of the United
Stntes to bring about a "condition of
civilization." Gen. Garibaldi said: "it
Is generally Inadvisable for the United
.States to Intervene in iJitln American
countries because of the loss to the
American market. In the c.-iko of
Mexico It Is somuwliut different than
It would be In any Houth American or
Cent ml American Ktnte, because there
are In Mexico more than Ifi.OOO Amer
icans and about $1,000,000 of American
, money nro Invested there.
"ir the United States attempted Inter
vention with tho Idea of seizing Mexico
Uicro would ensue u bloody and almost

no sun tinril, but maybo a swift road

would appeal to the peons, who are the
