The coup d'etat which so suddonly

dramatic an event as can be found in
the annals of the Mexican republic.
It appears that General Diaz was not

. upon Felix Diaz to make good his as
sertion that he would end the1 revolt

had becn'dorosed. Thut there was n
liberal use of money nobody doubts,
and It is confidently asserted that
General Diaz agreed to support tho
coup d'etat only after General Huerta

of ascertaining whether the financial
income' from their toil Is sufficient to

Employers are prohibited under heavy
penalty from discriminating against
any employe who -might be called to
testify before the boards or commis
