Tho shells from tho heavy guns

Diplomats Protest. j
From early morning the sharp orach

be heard In some quarter of the city
almost every minute of the day, some
times close, somctlmex far distant, me
diplomatic representatives of four pow
ers protostcd. and an armistice waa ar
ranged so that an envoy from these
diplomats could enter the rebel lines nnd
confer with Diaz. , .
Th envov was tired upon by the
troops, although rjdlng under a whito

inabllitv of tho federal commander to ,

It was supposed that the troops had
been advised of this mission, but the
automobile lnntantly was made the tar
get for numerous rifles, and bullets rat
tled about It. It continued on its way,
however, the diplomatic envoy appar
ently being unhurt.
The bombardment, whlcn was terriblo
vnsterday, reached a climax this morn
ing when Dlar. shelled the very center of
the buflness districts in an effort to si
lence the cannon of the government and
drive from tho roofs of the Taylor build
ing the federal sharpshooters and the
men serving the machine guns.
This terrific action directed from the
arsenal continued for more than two
hours. Shrapnel fell like hall and oc
casionally bursting- shells tore holes in
the sides of buildings.
Meanwhile the fire In the opposite di
rection rendered tho far-out residence
district uninhabitable, as well as the big
apartment building on Third Roma
Against Law of Nations.
The federal guns replied occasionally,
but without serious damage to tho rebel
positions. It was this action which de
cided the diplomats, after communicat
ing with their governments, to protest
against the continuation of such opera
tions, which they characterized as un
sanctioned by the laws of warfare of
President Ma'lero and hln minister
agreed that the bombardment of cities
was barbarous, and especially such a
struggle ao now was going on between

prote?t. declaring thnt, if he persisted,
the government would regard all those
occupying the areenal as beyond the palo
of the law.
Immediately after the dispatch of thin

that it had been determined to crush the
rebels by a concerted attack, the gov

The protest of the diplomats took the
form of a demand that the firing zone
should be limited, but it accomplished
nothing. Both Madcro and Diaz evaded
responsibility, each placing the blame on
the other nnd chnractcrlxlng the attitude
of the opposing side as barbarous and In
violation of the rules of civilized war
fare. Excuses Made.
DJaz insisted that he had to direct his
flt'e at the points from which he was at
tacked and called attention to the fact
that the government cannon were located
In .the heart of the business section and
the thickly settled residential districts.
To President Madcro the diplomats
said that they had come to protest In
behalf of their governments against a
continuation of the "barbarous and In
human warfare." They recited the great
damage done to many residences and the
fact that the American consulate had
been demolished by government shells,
and pointed out that the American om
bassy was filled with Americans driven
from their homes by a bombardment of
which no notice had been given. All the
governments, they added, were deeply
concerned for their subjects and citi
zens. Embassador Wilson later, speaking for
the diplomats, said that President Ma
dero was visibly embnrrasscd and con
fused, hut attempted to place the re
sponsibility on Diaz. The president had
given some glowing accounts of the
measures which were to be taken, and
expressed the belief that the rebellion
would be quelled by tomorrow night.
Wilson Gives Warning.
Embssador Wilson declared that Ma
dero's words had not made a favorable
Impression on the diplomatic representa
tives. To General Diaz, the ministers, after
urging the establishment of a neutral
zone, said that much damage liad been
done by Indiscriminate and reckless
firing, which seemingly was directed over
parti; mainly occupied by foreigners, re
gardless of the danger to tho foreign
Embassador Wilson declared that
President Taft was deeply apprehensive
as to the results of this state of affairs,
and that "war vessels had been ordered
to both gulf and Pacific ports and trans
ports had been prepared to convey ma
rines, who, if necessary, would be
brought to the capital for the purpose
only of maintaining order and affording
protection to the lives and property of
the foreign residents.
Stories of occasional robbery and loot

but for tho most part tho criminal as

By International News Service.
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 12. Ex-Provident
De la Barra went to the British
embassy with hlB family last night and
is still there with Manuel Calero. for
merly embassador to Washington.
Additional government troopn. num
bering a thousand or more, reached the
capital today. Tho federal forces ar
now estimated at 7000. Unless Diaz
gains assistance from outside, either
from Zapatistas or through defuctlons to
his standard of troope now loyal, he
cannot win. but the result is still doubt
ful. Any one of a half a dozen contin
gencies If it occurs, may throw victory
to one side or tho other.

WILL WOT ACT UNLESS
(Oontlnnod. from Page One.)
Corlno, Nicaragua, cruiser Dcs Moines, on
routo to Blueflelds, Nicaragua, and due
there Saturday; gunboat Nashville, on
routo to Puerto Cortex, Honduras, and
gunboat Annapolis, en route to Amapala,
Tho battleships Wyoming, Utah, Florida,
Arkansas. North Dakota. Michigan, South
Carolina, Minnesota, Idaho and Ohio,
seventeen torpedo-boat destroyers and
many auxiliary craft of the Atlantic fleet
remain with Rear Admiral Badger, com
manding the Atlantic fleet at Guantan
amo. It Is tho feeling of the administration
that these plans embody all that can
be done at this time and that a sufficient
number of battleships have been dis
patched, not only to observe develop
ments but practically to create neutral
zones at ports where they lie, In which
Americans and other foreigners in Mexico
may find safety.
It has been suggested in some quarters
that to land troops In Mexico would bo
such an act of war as can bo justified
only with tho approval of congress. Many
military officers fall to seo any distinc
tion between such landing of troops on
foreign soil In case of anarchy, and tho
employment of marines for the same
purpose, as was done in Nicaragua re
cently. Moral Effect Urged.
To meet the constitutional objection. In
case tho transports wore sent to Vora
Cms:, It Is understood that the command
ing officers would be instructed not to
land troops except upon congressional
authorization. Their presence on the
coast, It is felt, doubtless would have a
strong moral effect upon the contending
factions in Mexico and more than a
week's time would bo saved In placing
the soldiers Just where they would be
needed In case danger to foreign lives
and property should become more im
minent. Unless ono side or tho other achieves
a decisive victory In the City of Mexico
within the next day or two, it is proba
ble that Embassador Wilson will be In
structed to try to Induce the American
residents of tho capital to go to the ports
or other places of safety, and tho repre
sentatives of other foreign nations aro
expected to do tho same.
One great oloment of danger in the
situation arises from the presence in the
City of Mexico of about 17,000 foreigners,
whoso home governments aro known to
be In receipt of many heart-rending ap
peals for assistance. Recognizing tho
disposition of the United States govern
ment to extend tho samo protection to
these Europeans and Asiatics as to its
own citizens, so far nono of tho diplo
matic representatives of tho foreign pow
ers In Washington has done more than
make a few Inquiries at the state depart
ment as to tho actual situation in the
A wholesale evacuation of the city by
the foreign element would lnvolvo the
latter In an enormous financial loss, and
looking to the precedents established in
the civil war, it is doubtful whether any
compensation could be exacted from
whatever government may exist after tho
close of hostilities In Mexico.
Altogothcr. it Is apparent that the ad
ministration Is likely to find it very diffi
cult to adhero strictly to this declared
pollcv of non-intervention, If tho situa
tion 'in tho City of Mexico Is not materi
ally changed for the better in a very
short time. ....
To add to the difficulty of keeping In
close touch with the situation, word came
to the state department late today from
Consul Garrolt at Laredo, Tex., that all
wires were down south of Monterey and
that communication between Laredo and
that point could bo had only by way of
Mlcr. A complete severance of tele
graphic communication between tho
United States and Its embassy In the
Cltv of Mexico at this critical juncture
easily might bring about a change in
pollcv on the part of the administration,
at least to the extent of opening up a
line of communication between the Mexi
can capital and Admiral Fletcher's ships
at Vera Cms by a naval expedition, if
Diaz Expresses Regret.
General Dluz replied that ho regretted
what had happened to the city and Its in
habitants; that his afttltude from the be
ginning was one of defense; that Instead
of attacking the arsenal from a distance,
aa the government waa doing, ho had
gone directly to the place and had taken
it In twenty-five minutes.
In so doing, ho explained, ho had at
heart the desire to causo the city no
harm, which was Bhown from the fact
that, while it was in his powor he had
refrained from going to the national pal
ace, which he now felt certain he will be
able to take If the government falls to
yield, without his resorting to that expe
dient General Diaz declared that it was not
a matter of personal ambition on his
part to overthrow the government, but a
desire to voice tho sentiments of the
wholo nation. If he succeeded, he would
allow the people to choose their repro
aentative; he would -withdraw to prlvato

the government had placed its cannon,

was from shots which fell Bhort.
