the forenoon today in worry and spe -I

deeply apprehensive owing to Gener

Imit the departure of Madero and
I Suarez after all had been prepared
I for their exile.
Anxiety of the women was not re
lieved until shortly before noou when
I they were Informed of the state of at
fairs. In the meantime Madero ami
Suarez were confined in rooms which
had been assigned to them In the na
tional palace and from which tb
guards were never absent They were
in a stale of deep dejection as they
had been informed of Gustavo Ma
dero's death and were deeply con
cerned as to their own late.
Madero Dejected.
When informed of the provisional
president's determination to let the
eahim-t settle his fate, Madero ap
peared to be not greatly relieved He
sat sullenly and refused to answer
any questions Madero's trial, it is
said, before the cabinet will find IV
la Barra almost alone in councllllug
moderation and clemency. Itodolfo
Reyes, the minister of justice, is like
ly to remember the death of his fa
ther, in the attack on the palace and !
the high handed manner in which he
considers Madero treated htm.
With the exception possibly of two
others, all the ministers have person
al grievances, thus making the cabinet
jury scarcely a friendly one.
Mexico City, Feb. 20. The Mexican
capital was in a state of uncertainty
this morning in regard to the fate of
the heads of the old administration,
fleneral Huerta's order preventing the
departure of Francisco Madero cave
rise to many rumors and conjectures.
Meanwhile the attitude of Zapata
and (Joiner, leaders of the southern
and northern rebels. Is occasioning
anxiety
The closest estimates obtainable of
Ihe casualties during the fighting In
the si reels show that about 8,000 pen
pie were killed and TuhO wounded
These are not government figures nor
will the government be able to make
any reliable calculation.
Bodies Were Burned.
In most cases no official records
were mode of the bodies, which were
gathered up carted to open span s
outside the city, aDd burned.
Numerous instances are known
where whole families were wiped out
by exploding shells or by the pene
trating fire of machine guns The
great majority of the dead were non
combatants, im lading a large pro
portion of women and children
Estimates Inaccurate.
Estimates aa to the loss of property
are necessarily Inaccurate. There Is
no doubt that the damage amounts to
manj millions These are thp days of

stood high In favor with Madero, fear

It was this phase of federal action
that had been causing the most trou

At present, he declared, there are
