MEXICO CITY, Feb. 17. An ar

ranged at 2 o'clock Sunday morning

o'clock Monday night, under terms
agreed to by Maderp and Diaz, was

Before noon yesterday the sound of
heavy cannonading and .the whirr of
machine guns announced the return
of the federal troops to their posts
in front of the arsenal.
It appeared that the words of Ma-

in that .this time .the battle will be to
the finish. Madero- reiterated his re
fusal to comply with the suggestion
of the .senators that he resign. .
Diaz and Huerta are both opposed
to an armistice. Ihe rebel, Ieaader
only consented out of respect to the
efforts of the American ambassador
and ministers of the powers to bring
about a cessation of hostilities until

would fie removed from the zone of

POET OF HE SIERRAS
Spirit Takes Flight to The
By Associated Press.
SAN FRANCISCO, .Feb. 17.
Joaquin Miller, "Poet of the. Sierras,"
died at his home in Piedmont foot
hills today. His wife and daughter
Juanita were with him. He had
been in failing health for two years
and unconscious since Thursday. He
was nearly 70 years of age.
Cincinnatus Heine Miller, better
known by his peri-name "Joaquin"
Miller, the "Poet of the Sierras," was
one of the most picturesque charact-,
ers in the literary world of the Unit
ed States. He was born from Scotch
American parents in the Wabash
district of Indiana, November 10,
1842,. He was scarcely ten years old
when his father emigrated to Ore
gon, then a wild and sparsely settled
country. He received but little edu
cation and lived a wild and adventur
ous life. Three years later Miller,
then a boy of thirteen, left home to
try his fortune in California.
Very little -of a reliable nature is
known of young Miller's life during
the seven years he roamed aimlessly
through the wilds of northern Cali
fornia and southern Oregon. Gold
diggers, lumbermen and trappers, In
dians and outlaws were his compan
ions. The erratic nature of the
young poet was unintelligible to the
rough .adventurers with whom, he
with Mexico but is deciu:eapp"pvt;
ed to taking any measures himself
unless extreme provocation and the
wholesale murder of Americans drive
him to it.
He has informed his advisers,
however; if intervention is demanded
by Congress on the last day he is in
office he will not hesitate to concur
but hopes he will not have to act
and then leave the new president
and an unexperienced administration
to struggle with the real problem.
' Besides 'the movements of the ma
rines two army transports were ord
ered tonight to proceed immediately
from Newport News to Galveston
where they might be close at hand
for a movement of troops from the
border. Early in the day the third
cavalry at Fort Sam Houston was
directed to hold itself in readiness to

him crack-brained. When he became
a "squaw man," sharing the tent 'of

he had joined, he lost caste with the
white men altogether. He was treat
ed with contempt, like all "squaw"
men" are and retaliated by leading
the Indians in their attacks' upon the
whites. .. . , .
After his return to his home in"
Oregon he began to study law' in the,
office of George H. Williams at Eu
gene, Oregon, who afterward became
attorney-general of the United Stat
es. The following year he became
an express messenger in the gold
