The Story of Yesterday's Desperate Hours
Col. K. O,
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 14. Noon Fighting was re
sumed this morning at 6:30 with General Felix D'az as the
aggressor, who replied to a demand for the surrender oi
himself and his men by ordering a resumption of the as
sault on the city and fromvcry rebel position came shot
and shell with increasedvigor, indicating that Diaz was
well prepared for continued fighting before he gave the
word for an uprising.
Diaz Is Defiant
This morning early there was given out a lengthy
statement by Diaz in which he displayed wonderful confi
dence in his ability to overcome Madero and his forces
not only in the city of Mexico, but throughout the entire
country He claims that he is determined to continue his
struggle until victory is attained. v
Later in the day Diaz issued another statement ad
dressed to representatives of foreign countries in which
he said he had no control, as yet, in the city and could
give no promise of protection of foreign citizens or their
interests. In this last statement he called on Minister Wil
son of the United States, for recognition as a belligerent.
To this the American minister replied that he could give
no such recognition as that was something that would have
to come from .Washington, if at all.
Diaz Is Aggressor
During all the fighting today Diaz was the aggressor
and the fighting was even more desperate than at any time
since last Sunday when it was started. In many places the
streets are lined with the dead and wounded.
The government is now putting mines under four
blocks in the City with the intention of blowing them .up
and out of the way of their artillery fortification, so that an
attempt to storm it by the rebels would leave them with
out protection of the buildings.'1
Red Cross Makes Plea.
At one o'clock this afternoon the American Red Cross
appealed to both Madero and Diaz to cease firing for one
lfdir.,so that the wounded might be removed from the
streets. No attention was given to this plea.
After, continuing his assault on the National palace
for several hours today Diaz withdrew his forces and cen
tered his attdiJfc on other government 'buildings in the city

Although federal 'troops have been brought into the
city, leaving the Zapatistas practically without opposition,
those rebels appear to have m ade no combined effort to
come to the assistance of Diaz. It has been broadly hinted
that in an extremity, Emiliano Zapata would order his fol
lowerslto the support of President Francisco Madero, rath
er than assist one bearing the name of the president
whom he fought to overthrow two years ago.

Grim determination was'
expressed today by both
