DIAZ RESIGNS PRES1DENCY.
De La Barra Now Provisional Head
of Government.-Vice President
Mexico City, May 25.-President
Porfirio Diaz, in a letter read by the
president of the Chamber of Deputies
this afternoon, resigned the presiden
cy of the Republic of Mexico.
Every one had predicted an uproar
and demonstration when the an
nouncement should be made, but the
words of the president, announcing the
resignation were followed by a dead
Sreets leading to the hall were fill
ed with people and the news that
Diaz was at last no more the presi
dent was the signal for the wAH.J.st
sh-iting. There was no violenc. n%r
dastrL(tion of property.
The motion was offered to accept
the resignation. One hundred and
sixty. seven deputies voted aye, while
two of them did not express them
selves. They were Benito Jaurez, a
descendant of the president, ano on
cepitone Val Velle. As their names
were called the legislators arose ana
bowed their affirmation.
In similar fashion the resignation
of Vice President Corral, now in
France, was unauimously accepted,
and similarly Francisco Leon De La
Barra, late' ambassador to Washing
ton, was chosen provisional president.
President Diaz's letter of resigna
Diaz's Letter of Resignation.
"Sir: The Mexican people, who
generously have covered me with hon
ors, who proclaimed me as their lead
er during the international war, who
patriotically assisted me in all works
undertaken to develop Mexican indus
try and the commerce of the republic,
establish its credit, gain for it the re
spect of the world, and obtain for it
an honorable position in the concert
of nations; that same people, sir, have
revolted in armed military bands,
stating that my presence in the exer
eise of the supreme executive power
Is the cause of this Insurrection.
"I do not know of any fact imputa
ble to me which could have caused
this social change, but admitting that
I may be unwittingly culpable, such
a possibility makes me the least able
to reason out and decide my own cul
pability. Therefore, in accordance
with the federal constitution, I come
before this body to resign unreserved
ly the office of constitutional president
of the republic, with which the na
tkional Tote honored me, which I do
with all the more reason, since in or
der to continue in office, it would be
necessary to shed Mexican blood, ex
haust Mexican resources and expose
its policy to international comnplica
"I hope that when the passions
which are inherent to all revolutions
have calmed, a more conscientious
and lust study will bring out in the
national mind a correct jy~dgment,
which, when I die, I may carry gray
[ +--n on my soul as a just estimate tor
the life which I have devoted and
will devote to my countrymen.
"With all respect.
ON DISPENSARY BUSINESSi
Lyon Back From North-Liquor Cas
Columbia, May 27.-Attorney Gen
eral Lyon returned to his office today
from Baltimore, where he went upon
business connected with the office of
attorney general. Mr. Lyon also vis
ited New York and Washington when
he was North. He stated unreserved
ly that he went to Baltimore upon
official business, probably dispensary
'matters, but he did not disclose for
publication the exact nature o the
Asked about the dispensary trials.
Mr. Lyon stated that he had written
Solicitor Cobb that rather than have
the trials at this term of court he
would see the cases nol-prossed. He
did not consider that it was to the
best interests of the State to have thec
cases brought to trial at this term.
This was the announcement that So
licitor Cobb made a le's uau .go
when John Black, John Beli Towill,
L. W. Boykin and W. 0. Tatum press
ed, through counsel for trial. Mr.
Lyon was asked whether the would be
ready at the next term. It was the
understanding that upon this point
the solicitor was to confer with him.
Mr. Lyon stated t'iat he had not con
sidered this feature yet and that prob
ably his announcemnt as to intentions
along this line 'would come later. The
next term of criminal court her is
September. Mr. Lyon 'had no state
ment to make today as to the possi
bility of trials at the next term.

ITALIAN AVIATOR IS KILLED.
Cirri's Monoplane Catches on Fire
and He Falls Headlong to Death
Voghere, Italy, May 28.-The Ital
ian aviator, Cirri, while making an
aeroplane flight near here today, fell
from a height of 650 feet and was
killed. Twenty thousand persons. in.
cluding Cirri's wife and children, were
viewing the exhibition. Cirri used'
a Bleriot monoplane. He had com
pleted a number of evolutions when,
suddenly the motor exploded and in a
moment the wings of the machine
were on fire.
The aviator fell headiong from 'his
Mosquitoes a Warning.
If the people of this city wish to
have swarms of mosquitoes this sum
mer they can have them. But it is an
easy matter to prevent them if every
family will do its full duty.
It is impossible for -the health de
partment to cause the inspection of
the back yards and lots of every fam
ily living in this city. The citizens
must attend to this matter. Let no
vessels of water stand long without
changing the water. A two-gallon
vessel kept in an odd corner of the
yard or under a building will 'breed
mosquitoes enough for a dozen fami
lies. They cannot breed in running
water, nor in vessels in which the wa-I
ter is frequently changed. If there is!
no stagnant water in the city there
will be no mosquitoes.
On the little streams near the city
there are little stagnant holes where
a few are raised. The winds scatter
them and some drift to the city,
When -they find stagnant water they
deposit eggs and in a few days the
"wiggle-tails" appear and next the
It is believed by some that they~
breed in thick vines and shrubbery.
That is impossible. They hide in day
time in such places and sharpen their
bills during the day so as to get in
their work at night. Any filthy hole
where dirty water settles and remains
affords a good breeding place. If
every householder will do his duty
and the city council will look after
*the traps in the drains regularly there
will be no mosquitoes here this year.
Mosquitoes and Malaria.
The chill and fever season ap
proaches in localities where there is
stagnant water the favorite breeding
places for the smalarious mosquitoes.
These chill and fever causing mosqui-1
toes bite only after dark and if people
living where such mosquitoes exist'
can keep them out of their rooms and
remain indoors from before dark until
sunrise they will escape chill and fev
er attacks. The United States govern
ment says so. It also says that 5
grains of sulphate of quinine taken
daily by a grown person for a period
of four months will free the body
from all malarial parasites.
The Second Dimension.
It was on a little branch railway in
a Southern State that the New Eng
land woman ventured to refer to the
high rates. "It se'ems to me five cents
a mile is extortion," she said, with
frankness, to her Soutbern cousin.
"It's a big lot of .money to pay if
you think of it by the 'mile," said the
Southerner, in 'her soft drawl, "but
Iyou just think 'how cheap it is by the
hour, Cousin Annie--nly 35 cents."
