CITY OF "MEXICO, May 1. There
is an unconfirmed rumor here that
Durango. state of Durango, has been
taken by the rebels, and that at
tacks are to be made on Cucrvaca,
state of Puebla, and two other cap
itals, which has served to increase
the feeling of apprehension in tno
City of Mexico.
Many bridges were blown up last.
night on the Mexican Central and
Mexican Xational railroads, which
has seriously interfered with traffic
between here and Laredo.
The news that Durango was taken
was contained in a letter from Tor-
reon, received here today. The let
ter states that Luis Moya, rebel lead
er, with a thousand men, is marching
on Torreon to make that city his
headquarters.
The announcement that the rebel
Gcnteral Figucroa would march on tho
City of Mexico was followed by rum
ors that the city is in imminent dan
ger. This is not the case, but a
wide - area extending almost to tho
.city Jsinfested with rebels, who num
ber almost' 5,000. '' "
An afternoon paper made the start
ling announcement that 20,000 rebels
arc moving on the capital.
Madero Modifies Demands.
EL PASO, Texas, May 1. Coinci
dent with the advices today from the
rebel leaders at Coahuila, telling Ma
dero of activity there, especial';,'
near Monterey, an appeal was ro
eivcJ by Madero from the citizens
of Monterey, requesting an extension
of the armistiee zone to that section.
Madero will await advices from his
hiefs as to their positions before he
ma"kes a reply. Madero 's advices
read: "Railway at Gomez. Palacio,
Colonias, L'crdo and San Pedro aro
n the hands of the revolutionists."
"Hard fighting is in progress at
Barros, starting Thursday. One
thousand rebels are engaging GOO fed
erals, and Pablo Sanchez, with 300
men is marching on Monterey."
The rebel peace commissioners had
: conference lasting soveral hour-;,
with political leaders of- the revo
lutionists. N
The program to be presented by
Senor Carabajal, federal rommiss'on
cr. is the subject of much discussion
Carabajal was expected tonight, but
failed to arrive.
Madero 's plans have been some
what 'changed. The question of the
method of selection of provisional
governors for several states has been
given close attention, but the exact
number of states the revolutionists
determine the right to name govern
ors for have not been agreed upon.
He will make it plain, however, to
.Carabajalf that they do , not wish to
place men in power who have taken
an active part in the rebellion.
He will favor capable men who
are m sympathy with the insurgents,
and yet popular enough to tranquil
izc their states. Madero is to in
sist, however, that the 'governor be
natives of their states and that after
the expiration of thoir tprms a fw
election will ensue
According to the rebel program, af
ter the provisional governors are c
lected and the election laws revised,
there shall be a general eloction
vailed to elect a president of tj
republic.
The exact time of Diaz' tenurs
will be avoided, because Mcdaro be
lieves that he will resign after peaco
i declared.
It has been agreed, however, that
the selection of a provisional presi
dent for the interim, will not inter
fere with reforms in the various
states. Senor -De la Barra. the pres
ent foreign minister, is tho professed
favorite of the revolutionists for pro
visional president.
A complete change in the political
administration is desired by Madero's
program now being drafted, and there
is good ground to believe tho gov
ernment has already given assurances
of its acceptability to some of the
rebel demands.

SAX AXTOXIO, Texas, May 1.

ignorant of peace negotiations. At
Cumpas, an American deserted and
robbed three Chinese stores. He left,
and boasted that on his return he
would rob more. On the edge of
the city he met ten armed men. The
deserter was killed, also three prom
inent Mexican citizens.
