TRIES TO KILL WIFE,

James Purcell, .New York
Gambler and Informer,
Becomes Murderer.
NEW YOE.K, Feb. 14. James Piu
cell, the voteran gambler, who testified
beforo the aldennanic committee last
week that ho had paid polico graft, over
a period of seventeen years, quarreled
earl' today with his wife in their
apartment, and began shooting. Mrs
Purcell fainted, but wild bullots struck
their thirteen-year-old daughter, Agnes,
who lay cowering in bed, and killod her
almost instantly. Thinking that ho had
murdered both women, Purcell surren
dered himself to tho police.
The gambler was so hysterical when
he staggered into a polico station that
he was unablo to give a coherent ac
count of tho affair. He and his wife
had quarreled nearly all night, ho said,
until he at last lost control of himself
and rushed at her with arevol.vor.
The tragedy may have an important
bearing on tho graft investigation now
being pushed by District Attorney
Whitman. Purcell 's testimony, given
last .Friday, resulted in the suspension
of two police captains and his story
was being countod on as tho basis of
indictments. With him in a cell,
charged with, homicide, his testimony
may be invalidated.
".Jimmie" Purcell was at on time a
partner in gambling with Herman Ro
senthal, for whose murder ex-Police
Lieutenant Charles Becker and four
gunmen are in tho deathhouso at Sing
Sing.
Since his testimony against tho sys
tem, Purcell told the polico today, ho
had boon shunned by his friends as a
"squealer," and "hounded by tho
cops." lirveu his wifo was ashamed of
bim. He became morose and sullen,
Early last night they quarreled. They
were fitill at it at dawn. Then came
Iho shooting.
"I guesH you want me," snid the
gambler a little lator as ho slouchod up
to the desk at a station house near his
apartment.
"For what?" demanded tho lienten
ant.
"For murder," naid Purcell. Then
he told his story.
IMMIGRATION
BILL IS VETOED
BI PRESIDENT
Executive Declares Measure
Contains Many Valuable
Amendments to the
Present Law.
OBJECTS, HOWEVER,
TO LITERACY TEST
Senator Lodge Announces
That Attempt Will Be Made
to Pass Bill Over the
Veto Monday.
WASHINGTON, Feb. M. Presi
dent Taft vctoorl today tho
Dillingham-Burnett immigra
tion bill, which would revo
lutionize tho immigration policy of the
United States by imposing a literacy
test upon all foreigners socking a home
in America.
In a short message to tho senate
in his own handwriting, tho president
announced lus disapproval of the meas
ure solely because of the provision
which would lock the doors of the
United States against the alien who
could not read some languago or dia
lect. The veto message was accompanied
by a letter to the president from Sec
retary Nagel denouncing the literacy
test as a radical provision, "based
upon a fallacy in undertaking to ap
ply a test which is not calculated to
reach the truth and to find relief from
a dangor which really docs not., ex
ist." May Pass Over Veto.
Tho president adopted the secrotaiy's
position. ' Senate and house leaders
lost no time in arranging for an ef
fort to override the veto. As. soon
as the message was read, Senators
Dillingham and Simmons and Repre
sentative Burnett, leading the congres
sional supporters of tho measnrc, made
arrangements to take it up in the
senate on Monday and in tho house
on Tuesday. With Senator Lodge, they
wore confident that tho bill would be
passed easily in both houses by tho
necessary two-thirdfl. Opponents and
proponents of tho proposed law have
waged a vigorout contest in hearings
beforo the president for tho laBt ten
days. Organized labor warmly sup
ported the bill, while several organiza
tions, particularly Jewish societies, rec
ommended, its veto. Foreign nations
protested against tho provision for de
tailing immigrant inspectors and ma
trons on vessels frying foreign flags,
but Secretary Nagel hold that this was
not a controlling objection to the pro
posed law.
This is the second time that literacy
test for immigrants has been vetoed
by a president, G rover Cleveland like
wise having refused in 1807" to ap
prove a bill barring aliens who could
not read and write.
President's Message.
In vetoing the bill, the president
said:
I do this with great reluctance.
The bill contains many valuable
nmenlmentB to the prcsont Immigra
tion law which will Insure groat

FRANCISCO DE LA BARRA. who will
become provmonal president of Mexico if Mad ero
carries out Lib reported intention of resigning today.
MADERO'S FALL BRINGS
" RELIEF AT WASHINGTON
Government Officials Believe Taft Justified in His
"Hands OfF' Policy in Mexico.
WASHINGTON, Fob. 14. Tho
nows of Fraucisco I. Madcro's
voluntary relinquishment of
the presidency of Mexico
brought relief to official circles in
Washington, in which, tho situation iu
tho last five days hourly had been grow
ing more tense.
The announcement coming at the
close of a day in which tho situation
steadily bad been .turning against Ma
dero, hardly was surprising. It served
instantly to cloar tho horizon of tho
etormclouds which, came nearer as tho
prospect of armed interference on the
purt of the United States seemed in
evitable. State dopartment officials, since tho
opening of the fight in tho plaza be
foro the Mexican national palace last
Sunday, have waited eagerly night and
day for official and unofficial advices
from tho scene of the conflict and the
government was -fully proparod io meet
any situation which might arise.
Ready for Service.
As a result of the co-operation of tho
navy and wnr departments, theso com
bined forces already were in rondiness
for Mexican scrvico. Coincident with
tho receipt of the nows of Madero's
abdication, a wiroless message was
flashed to the navy department hero
announcing tho arrival in the Mexican
port of Mazatlnn of tho cruiser Colo
rado, the ilrst of the six American
warships to roach its destination off
the shores of the revolution-torn re
public. Five other warships aro well on their
way towards Mexican ports and Act
ing Secretary Winthrop said tonight
that in all probability they would con
tinue to their destinations.
Not less prepared was tho army.
Tho entire First brigade o the First
division, 3000 strong, is under marching
orders and awaiting the command of
Major Goucral Leonard Wood, chief of
stair, to entrain from their respective
stations in Now York nnd proceed to
Newport Nows, Va., whoro four army
transports aro fully oquippod and pro
visioned, to set out for tho Gulf of
Mexico to augment the naval forces.
Warships Due Today.
Of tho baltloships, tho Georgia is
duo to reach Vora Oruz tomorrow, while
tho Virginia is due in Tampico tho
samo day. By Sunday the Nebraska
and Arormonfc also should havo completed
thoir journey to Vera ruz. Tho cruis
er South Dakotn should lie oft Aca
pulco, long a storm eontcr of the revo
lution, not later than Sunday. As
they arc all no near their destinations,
Acting Secrotary "Winthrop -eaid it hard
ly would be expedient to attoinpt-their
recall immodialcly.
It probably will be determined to
leave at least ouo warship off the Pa
cific and Atlantic coasts, while tho oth
ers may return to thoir routine duties
or perhaps bo pressed into Central
American service where conditions,
which .it is feared forecast a general
uprising, havo been almost lost sight
of on account of tho concern of offi
cials over Mexico.
Officials Confer.
Secretary Knox was early in consul
tation with Assistant Secretary Hunt
ington Wilson and the state department
and staff tonight immediately after
tho announcement from Mexico City
and hurried dispatches wore sent to
Embassador Henry Lane Wilson in the
Mexican capital. It was suid no defi
nito instructions would be sent to Mr.
Wilsou until lie had reported official
ly tho abdication of President Madoro.
In the absonco of such a report, de
partment officials declined io comment
upon tho sudden and dramatic turn in
Mexican affairs, j
President Taft, when tho nows
reachod Washington, was at dinner at
the home of Secretary MacVcagh. He
was notified of tho dovolopment at
once by tho White house attaches and
soon afterwurd heard from the sec
rotary of stato. Though tho president's
comment was not made public, it was
stated that there might be a confer
enco of cabiuet officials later iu the
night. It was not- regarded as prob
able, however, that any of tho plans
promulgated by tho governmeut early
in the week for protecting American
interests in Mexico would bu altered
at this lime.
Policy Justified.
Madero's resignation, it is felt gen
erally by officials here, justifies the
correctness of this government's atti
tude in adopting and following persist
ently a hands-off policy in the solu
tion of the Mexican situation, and it
is also the prevailing opinion that it
will bo expedient to continue a patrol
in Mexican wntcrs until conditions
havo settled considerably. Francisco
de la Carra. who was Mexican embas
sador hero in tho closing days of the
old Diaz regime, was known to have
boon opposed to intervention by the
United States in Mexican affairs. He
expressed the opinion while hero that
Mexico, if ovor given a fnir opportu
nity to solve its problems without out
side powers taking part, would at all

THUGS ROAM STREETS TO ROB;
WILSON'S SECRETARY IS VICTIM H
Special Cable to The Trlbuno.
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 1410:30 p. m.A fierce attack on the H
Diaz forces in the arsenal began ten minutes ago. Many rapid-fire kW
rifie volleys and heavy cannonading can be heard. This is the
first night attack since the battle began on Tuesday and seems
very determined, to judge from the sound of the firing, which
seems to be on all sides, and to be getting fiercer every minute. tW
Special Cablo to The Tribune.
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 14. Juan Sanchez Azconti, Mudero's pri
vnte secretary, emphatically denies that the president has
resigned but refuses to state what action in this direction
his chief may take tomorrow.
Tough gangs of rebel sympathizers are parading the streets to
night s'houting 4 'Viva Diaz" and threatening pedestrians unless they
shout the same thing. There are many signs to indicate that these
lawless mobs, unrestrained by authority, are awaiting the oppor- .H
tunity to start a reign of terror throughout the helpless city. mmu
Volunteer guards arc patrolling the business section to prevent
looting, but it is doubtful if they are strong enough to withstand
any Mnd of a concerted attack.
Every one is greatly excited over the report of Iadero's resig
nation, all hoping it is true, but doubting that he hns decided to ab
dicate. The belief prevails in many quarters that Madero will hold out
until the pressure against him becomes irresistible, and even then
he may try to escape from the city and establish a capital else
where. He is said to believe even yet that the people need him and jH
his patriotic duty is not to desert them. He is obsessed with the JM
idea that he is t'he reincarnation of Benito Juarez and the savior of
his country.
DE LA BARRA EXPECTS TO BE I
THE PROVISIONAL PRESIDENT I
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 1-1 The res
ignation of Francisco I. Ma
dcro from tho presidency is
believed to bo iu the hands of
the Mexican congress. Jt was authori
tatively stated that Madcro agreed to
resign if tho senate so wished. Tho
senate was called into session about
8 o'clock tonight to tako action on
this important phase of tho situa
tion. At the British legation, where Senor
do la Barra took refuge Thursday, it
was stated that Madoro Js resignation
practically had been arranged for and
that De la Barra probably would suc
ceed him in the presidency.
Later Senor do la Barra, while pro
ceeding through the streets in an au
tomobile, stopped and made a brief
address, assuring tho crowds that a
peace settlement was certain and prob
ably would be ronched before morn
ing. Do la Barra had been in consulta
tion with both Madero and Diaz re
garding a quick settlement in order
to avoid intervention.
Order to Cease Firing.
At (5 o'clock tonight General Huerta.
the federal commnndor, gave the order
to cease firing. Soon detachments of
federals were seen marching from their
positions to tho government base near
tho palace, their guns slung on their
backs.
The laws of Mexico make it neccs
snry for the resignation of the pres
ident to bo submitted to congress and,
for this reason, official announcement
of the resignation of Madero may bo
doluyod considerably, oven if already
decided upon.
Another development of tho early
ovening was tho resignation of Rafaol
Hernandez as minister of tho interior.
Diaz May Fight.
In case of dilatory tactics it Is not
impossible that Diaz may decide to
force the action. Ho Tcpeatcdly has
said that nothing short of the resigna
tion of tho presidont would satisfy him
that Madero must, resign or he him
self would die fighting.
Another exchango oi noteg took place
today between General Huorta and tho
rebel commander. That of Huerta was
of a conciliatory charactor. It offered fl
Diaz permission to- retire in peace with
his men. Diaz replied that ho would
continue to light.
His army repulsed with great loss
and after his absolute failure to sub
jugato Diaz, with not half the number
of men, Madero was subjected to the
pleading of his closest friends, man
going so far as to demand hit resigna-
Neither Side Victor.
The government has not been
whippod, nor have tho rebels. Diaz is
not attempting to whip tho government
at present, but merely to resist it, and
for six days ho and his forces have
dono that in an cminontly brilliant
manner, although tho methods employed
resulted in a ruthless bombardment of
tho capital by two heavy forces of ar
tillory. Tho damage dono today was not as
great as on previous days, but this was
due merely to a change of tactics, and
Mexicans high in public life, knowing
that a continuation of hostilities in tho
city might easily result in intervention,
spared no efforts to bring about a set-
Rebels Continued Firing.
To those watching tho battlo it was WM
no surprise to hear the bugles sound
the order for tho federals to coase fir
iug. The tired soldiers obeyed with
alacrity, but the cil'cct on the rebel
liues of Huerta fsNordor was different.
The small arm Ore increased in volume,
as if tho besieged wero expressing de
fiance. Ten minutes later all tiring H
along the fedcrul lines ceased, but that
from the rebels continued, though iu
diminishing' measure, a cannon now and
then sending a shell first to one side and
then to tho other, as if marking time. m
Tho rebels were not reinforced today
but the federals had received additions ll
to their ranks and the claim was made ll
by the government that it had no fewer
than 0000 men available Tho robcls 'H
numbered 3000, including several hun-
