MI5XICO CITY, pec. S. In obedi
ence to a papal decree there will
hcgln tonight at midnight in
every Catholic church through
out tbc republic a special mass
lor divine intervention in Mexico. In
-t. Peter's at Home. -at tbo same hour,
or G o'cloek Rome time Monday morn
ing, the pope himself will join In the
prayers for the restoration of peace.
.Monsignor Ilogglaul, tho apostolic dele
gate, will offlclalo In I lie church of
Guadulupe, where a service of unusual
solemnity Is planned, although the serv
ices in the cathedral will be almost
equally Impressive.
That tbo involution in Mexico has re
sulted In conditions be.vonrf eonmi nt
tho government appears lo be indicated,
not only by the reports of the rebel
operations, but by the aptlon of the
secretary of the Interior, Rafael Her
nandez. The secretary recently sum
moned Monsignor Dogsinni and appealed
to him to use the power of the church
to assist In restoring order. The secre
tary requested that the pope issue a de
cree to that end.
The Liberals construed the act of Sec
retary Hernandez as beliir not In line
with tlie laws respecting Hie separation
of tho churchy and the state..
Army Too Small.
Secretary Hernandez also has admitted
that tho army is not nearly largo enough
to givo protection to haciendas and small
towns. In reply to requests from these
quarters be has sent the following note:
"The government is making almost unheard-of
efforts to give protection, but
to accede to all demands would require
an army of half of a million."
A plan has been outlined asking tlie
chambers of commerce and other similar
organizations throughout tho country, to
appropriate money to maintain bodies of
volunteers, whom the government will
equip with rifles and ammunition, but
It is announced that tho government
would expect those paying thufle volun
teers to givo a guarantee that arms and
ammunition furnished will not full Into
tho hand of the rebels.
According to official reports the rebels
in a series of attacks during the last
Ibrco days around Tcmascnltepcc In the
state of Mexico, loot 12S men killed. The
federal loss Is not given and minor suc
cesses In other regions arc reported. Ac
cording to unofficial reports, however,
tho rebels are winning many successes,
and there is no doubt that they are gain
ing ground In tho north and coast re
gion of the stale of Guerrero, while they
aro fully holding their own In other re
gions. Rebels Are Active.
There Is less disposition in official
circles lo belittle tho movement in the
north where the remnants of Orcco's
army aro showing more evidence of con
certed action. Clicche Campos and Indlo
Mariano arc practically in control of
northern Durango. The latter has burn
ed oil bridges of the railroad between
Ssn .Tuna Del KIo, which he captured,
and Caaa Blancji. south of which a force
of .500 federals Is located. Compos In
tho last few days has raided fourteen
haciendas. In connection with these at
tacks, stories of destruction and atrocl
lles are common.
Tho rebels on the Pacific coast of the
state of Guerrero are said to have ac
quired a llttlo post south of Acapulco,
from which point they are shipping to
the Interior ammunition and supplies
which they receive there. These rebels
are commanded by Andrew Atmazan.
Tlie general situation in best dellned

Pay for Immunity.
While It is no scrct that Mexicans and
foreigners allko in numerous Instances
aro paying tho rebels for Immunity, it
Is not always given.

brought from Magon tbo statement that

With bank officials and armed guards
on watch, 51,000,000 were moved Satur
day night from the old Walker bank
.building ,to. the new skyscraper and ' It
was fi:30 o'clock' fiupday morning before
the task was complete.
President M. II. Walker, Vice President
Ij. H. Farnsworth, Cashier 15. .0. Howard
and a number of lesser officials of the
bank kept an all-night vigil, never mov
ing more than a few yards away from
the big strong box which weighs six tons.
1-1. E. Godwin, the bank policeman, and
a flock of city detectives mingled with
the workmen and closely scrutinized the
crowds that watched tho proceedings.
It was a comparatively easy matter to
get the strong box from, tho old build
ing to the sidewalk In front of the sky
scraper. The work was commenced at
12::50 Saturday and at S:30 that afternoon
the treasure was in front of Its new
home, but getting Into the vault without
damaging the marblo or fixtures, test
ing the timo lock on tho vault and lull
ing an Inventory to make sure-that not
the slightest thing was lost, consumed
the rest of the time until G:30 o'clock Sun
day morning.
A part of the contents, of the box, of
course, was securities, but moro than. four
itons of gold i and silver weru slowly
boosted onto a dray by Workmen who
got from ?2.'60 lo 53 'a night for' tholr
work and made many . facetious remarks
as they tuged and -hauled. !
"Gee, Bill, If we -had What Is; In hero
I guess wc wouldn't work any more," ob
served one.
"Hlp yourself," offered a bank offi
cer, secure In the knowledge that sov
eml inches of chilled steel and tho com
plicated lock protected the millions.
"Weill any way. I can go home and
tell my ole woman I've spent the night
juggling ? 1,00,0000." observed number.
When the strong box was safo within
tho now vault the time lock was given
an exhaustive test and the tired bank
officers, almost as grimy as tne worit
men. heaved great sighs of relief. Tho
moving of tho bank's treasure has been
on their minds for a long timo and is tho
most ncvrc-wrccklng job they have had.
For days past some of the officers have
dreamed of a gang of dynamiters Inter
rupting the (work and although It was
only a dream they took as many, precau
tions as If It were a poeslblc contingency.
Tho officers and guards fairly bristled
with automatic pistols and repeating
rifles were concealed In proximity, so
they could' be grabbed hastily If need be.
Early in the evening crowds watched
the work, but the night was cold and
from 2 o'clock on the work was dono
without any spectators.
The $1,000,000, veritably a king's ran
som, Is now protected not 'only by the
stronc- box which In ltuolf 1b so Invulner
able It might bo left In tho street for
hours, but by one of the. most modern
