Mexican Federal Officials
Buy Up All Arnmunition
and Guns in Juarez.
There was no disturbance Sun
day in Ciudad 'Juarez, despite the
fact that November 20 was the date
get for general disorder throughout
Mexico. The only thing nearing a
riot was when the crowds attending
the bull fight carried a favorite mata
dor on their shoulders from the very
ring to his house.
However, certain action on the part
of officials indicates that there was
much misgiving. Understanding that
a general order to do away with the
bull fights had been Issued, merchants
of Juarez telegraphed Gov. Sanchez
assurances that there would be no
trouble. About 100 promlent persons
signed the message, since bull fight
crowds help business. The governor
answered that if every merchant sign
ing the petition would go to the bull ,
fight to keep order, it would be
granted. And they all went, many '
persons who had not seen the alleged ,
sport In years. t

LOMELI DISCREDITED THE
ZACATECAS BATTLE REPORT
In the belief of Antonio V. Lomeii.
Mexican consul to El Paso, the report
ed disorder at Zacatecas is improba
ble, also that other reports have been
overdrawn, and that in all the condi
tion is very simple.
"The condition is merely this," said
the consul. "Some savages in Texas
and some savages in Mexico have com
mitted unnecessary violence. It only
remains for the two governments to
punish them. The Americans are not
responsible for what has been done,
neither are we. But if we agree that
what has been done Is right, by de
fending it we are abbetting it.
"This report from Zacatecas seems
improbable. It logically should come
from El Paso, because that city Is on
the National railways. That the report
comes from Eagle Pass would be
curiosity, if it were true."

St. Petersburg, Russia, Nov. 21. The
duma adjourned today's session out of
respect to the memory of count Leo

after a wrangle, the membe-s of the

Tolstoi's death occurred peacefully
at 6 oclock Sunday morning. It was
due directly to heart failure following

True to his unswerving and uncom
promising search for truth, he died ?s
he had lived, without reconciliation

Members of the clergy in the last
days made pressing attempts to gain
entrance to the sick room with a view
of inducing him to return to the arms
of the church, but the doctors repulsed
them on the ground that their patient
was too ill to receive them.
Popular feeling is universally for a
religious funeral and never, before was
there such confusion and bewilderment
over the body of a great man who was
regarded by the world as one of the
sincerest of Christians.

Tolstoi's Xotahle Career.
Count Lyof Nikolavitch Tolstoi,
usually called Leo Tolstoi, novelist
and social reformer, was born August
2S, 1S28, at Yasnava Poliana, In the
province of Tula, Russia.
TVrfien 23 years of age he entered the
army and served in the Caucasus anJ
in the defence of Sebastopol against
the British and French allied forces.
He first made a reputation in litera
ture ,by a series of vivid sketch-s

DEATH GUIMS TOLSTDI; SIMPLE PEOPLE
oe Russia mourn mm as a father
His "War and Peace," a tale of the
invasion of Russia by .Napoleon in
1812, is regarded in Russia as being
his masterpiece, though his "Anna
Karenina," iwhich appealed in 1S7G,
and "The Cossacks" found greater fa
vor "abroad, where his "Kreutzer So
nata," translated in 1690, also attract
ed wide attention.
Tolstoi wrote much on education
and published several short stories
and reminiscences of childhood and
youth, but of recent years he had de
voted himself to religious , teachings.
He made "return not evil" the key
stone of the Christian faith, and in
sisted that the literal interpretation
of the sermon on the mount was the
only rule of the Christian life. The
religious views of Tolstoi were set
forth in his "Christ's Christianity"
and "My Religion."
In -S93 Tolstoi wrote "The Kingdom
of God Within Us," an Important work
on the social question, and in 1S95 ho
wrote "The Four Gospels Harmonized
His other works included "lly Con
fession," "Criticisms of Dogmati -al
Christianity," "What I Believe: Wh? t
is To Be Dope?" "The Death of Ivan
Ilytch," "The Power of Darkness" (a
drama), "On Life," "The Fruits of Kn
lightennunt" (a comedy), "The Ki.i.r
dom of God Is Within You," "What ts
Art," "The Christian Teachings," ne
Resurrection," "The Slavery of Our
Times," "What Is Religion?" and
many other works on the most varied

In 1S95 Tolstoi wrote a powerful
vindication of the Dukhobor sect,
which in that year had suffered great
persecution. On the Russian censor
refusing to permit its publication,
Tolstoi applied to the London Times,
which printed the lengthy article in
full. He continued from that time ci
to address his literary efforts to the
British press. On March 17, 1S96, the
j London Dally Chronicle published a
lonir letter from Tolstoi to a corre
spondent in England on the Venezuela
dispute, which hdd recently arison be
tween the United States and Great
Britain. It was a strong indictment
of war. ,
Threatened With Expulsion
Tolstoi was several times threaten
ed with expulsion from Russia, and
was several times, according to re
port, upon the point of being exiled;
but he seemed on the whole to hae
j been treatej with unusually leniency
i.i view of his pronounced views, aad
especially as set forth in a manifesto
entitled "The People's Rights," his
criticism of imperial acts and his open
letters to the emperor. He was, hoy-
