Mexico City, Feb. 23.?Francisco I.
, ' Madero and Jose Pino Suarez are
___ dead. In a midnight ride under guard
from the National palace to the peni-?
lenuary iiiej wuc nmw.
The circumstances surrounding the
death of the deposed president and
vice president of the republic are unknown,
except as given in official accounts,
which do not in all cases conform.
The only witnesses were those
actually concerned in the killing.
The provisional president, Gen.
Victoriano Huerta, says the killing of
the two was incidental to a fight be
tween th'eir guard and a party at,
tempting to liberate them. The minister
of foreign relations, Francisco tie
la Barra, adds that the prisoners at
tempted to escape. Neither makes a
s definite statement as to which side
fired the fatal shots. It is not impossible
that neither knows.
An official investigation has been
ordered to determine the responsibility
and promises have been made that the
t guilty will be punished.
The President's Story.
The following official statement of
President Huerta was given out at ihe
"I called together the cabinet to
report that Madero and Pino Su'irez,
who had been detained at the painceat
the disposition of the war department,
were taken to the penitentiary
in accordance with a previous decision,
as the result of which that establish

ment was piaceu yesterua.,)' auciuuuii
j under the charge of an army officer
for its better security.
"When the automobiles had traversed
about two-thirds of the way to the
penitentiary, however, they were attacked
by an armed group and the escort
deserted the machines to offer resistance.
Suddenly the group grew
larger and the prisoners tried to escape.
"An exchange of shots then took
place in which two of the attacking
party were killed and two wounded.
TJrvtVi nricnupre wprp Villpd Thp ail
tomobil-es were badly damaged.
"The president arid his cabinet
have resolved that th? affair shall b^
.consigned to the military judicial authorities
having to do with the attempts
against military prisoner* such
as were Madero and Pino Snare/, so
that they may make a strict inv>sti
gation with the direct intervention 01

Washington, Feb. 23.?The killing of
j Francisco Madero and Pino Saurez,
i deposed president and vice president
of Mexico, after provisional President
Huerta had assured American Ambas;
sador Wilson of th-e safety of his
prisoners fiom just such attacks,
created a painful impression in administration
circles here today.
When the first feeling of surprise
had passed it was realized by officials
that this last tragic event had added
greatly to the gravity of the situation
and undoubtedly had placed an adI
ditional strain upon the already tense
relations between this government and
that in the Mexican capital. Still, as
President Taft himself declared, the
event in itself was not sufficient to
iemand any departure from the policy
of strict non-intervention which so far
has governed nis aaminisirauon.
Probably the immediate result will
be to hasten the military and naval
preparations in order to have the so1diers
and sailors and marines ready to
answer a call for i.istant embarkation
if further developments in Mexico
should demand their employment.
