stop the authorizations which make
inevitable tho expenditure of large
sums of public money. I denounce

scrutiny and attention to the bill. I

"I believe," ho declared, "honestly

"There are things in this bill no

each one of you in your heart knows
that this bill is not right, that instead
of being in the Interest of public serv

Tells Mexican Chief What
His Paramount Duty Is.

llct Americans and Other
Foreigners Flee City.
Wnshlnaton. President Taft's reply to
Madera's appeal to withhold American
Intervention In Mexico, sent by telegraph,
has Just been made public by Secretary
Knox as follows:
"From your excellency's telegram which
reached me the 14th, It appeared that
your excellency was somewhat misin
formed as to the policy of the United
States toward Mexico, which has been
uniform for two years as to the naval or
other measures thus far taken which are
measures of natural precaution. The
ambassador telegraphed that when you
were good enough to show him your tele
gram to me he pointed out this fact.
"Your excellency must, therefore, be
aware that the reports which appear to
have reached you that orders have al
ready been given to land forces, were In
accurate. The ambassador, who Is fully
Informed, Is nevertheless again Instructed
to afford you any desirable information.
Fresh assurances of friendship to Mexico
are unnecessary after two years of proof
of patience and good will.
"In view of the special friendship and
relations between the two countries I
cannot too strongly Impress upon your
excellency the vital Importance of the
early establishment of that real peace
and order .which this government has to
long hoped to see, both because Ameri
can citizens and their property must be
protected and respected, and also be
cause this nation sympathizes deeply with
the afflictions of the Mexican people.
"In reciprocating the anxiety shown by
your excellency's messago I feel It my
duty to add sincerely and without reserve
that the course of events during the past
two years culminating In the present
most dangerous situation creates In this
country extreme pessimism and the con
viction that the present paramount duty
Is the prompt relief of the sltuatlrr.

Washington, D. T "Your para

This ultimatum was sent to Presi
dent Madero of Mexico by President
Taft, in reply to JIadero's appeal for
non-intervention by tho United States.
At the same time the note assures
the Mexican executive that that gov
ernment's attitude toward Mexico haf
not changed and the naval and other
methods thus far undertaken are
measures of "natural precaution."
The note, however, makes it plain
that tills is tho linal warning of the
Washington government and that the
United States has the right to land
its troops in Mexico to protect Ameri
cans and other foreigners and will
use It should a state of anarchy come
nbout or should neither of the oppos
ing forces extend protection.
The note was sent following a meet
ing of the cabinet.
Cannonading Is Resumed.
Mexico City. Heavy cannonading,
accompanied by a vicious riflo

Position of Forces the Same.
The United StateB embassy and the
district surrounding it escaped with
less damage Monday than heretofore,
owing to tho removal of tho federal
battery, which had drawn tho flro of
the rebel gunners at tho arsenal.
Diaz directed tho greater part of
his Are toward the palace, as during
the early part of last week.
The fighting of the day failed to
bring bout any chango In tho posi

followers remaining at tho arsenal

The almost unnnimous verdict of
ancient and modern times is to tho ef
fect that Julius Caesar was what
Shakespeare calls him: "The fore
most man of all this world." Never
before or since has anyone exhibit
ed In so high a degree all tho qual

never had any man a grander role to

most important branch of the human
race was a task that none but tho
greatest of men could successfully
perform. Caesar swept ono obstacle
after another aside, and stood at last
where he meant to stand.

Tho littlo bllstorB burst by pressing
