"Bloody Monday," the day set by the
Reyista junta in El Paso for making
the carefully planned attack on Cludad
Juarez, found the hi alleged Reyista
ringleaders either in the county jail or
out on heavy bonds to answer before
the United States court on the charge
of conspiracy to violate the neutrality
laws of the United States.
Everything had been carefully
planned to make the long delayed and
longer expected attack upon Juarez, the
Waterloo of the Madero eovernrnent.
The money which had been deposited In j
me tn ra.so banks was to hare been
distributed among the recruits to the
Reyista cause, the cached rifles and
nomas were to have been unearthed
and more rifles purchased.
The expedition was to have been
made Monday night by way of San Lo
renzo ford and into Juarez by the old
ban Lorenzo road, which passes the
Juarez headquarters of Madero. A
junction was to have been made with
the Juarez Reyista forces and a com
bined attack made upon the Maderlsta
garrison and the customs house, where
the federal funds were kept. The banks
were to have been raided, the prisoners
in the federal jail liberated and .the
Gen. Benardo Reyes was then to
have been proclaimed provisional presi
dent of Mexico, hja headquarters estab
bridge, made frequent trips to El Paso
which would then have been at vari
ous times the official home of three
Mexican leaders Diaz, Madero and
Reyes. The revolution was then to
hare been pushed on to Chihuahua,
and from there to Mexico City. The
Nuevo Laredo attack: was abandoned
when Reyes was arrested and the en
tire efforts of the Reyista leaders had
been centered in.TEl Paso to attack
Ormeo Is Eafralfed.
The rapid whirlpool of events Which
started -with the roundup of the 1
leaders Saturday has engulfed the one
hero of the Madero revolution who was
bigger than Madero himself. Brig. Gen.
Pasqual Orozco, commander in chief of
the Madero army of liberation, and now
commander of the federal rurales in
the northern war zone, is bei"g charged
with having opened direct negotiations
with Gen. Reyes at Laredo "and with
Dr. Raphael Limon Molina, alleged to
be the active head of the Reyista Junta
!n El Paso and the personal representa
tive of Reyes at this strategic point.
Gen. Orozco came to Juarez pre
sumably to go to Sinaloa with federal
rurales to suppress the -uprisings there.
But instead, he remained in Juarez In
command of the garrison and the ad
ditional troops which wora sent there.
His secretary, Jose Cordova, the man
who delivered the address for Gen.
Orozco at the presentation of the Mc
Ginty cannon at the Saita Fe street
bridge, made frequent trios to El Paso
while Orozco was in Juarez. The generalissimo-hero
was noticeable by his
absence from El Paso, In spite of his
former affection for the good things of
the American side of the line.
Letters to Gen. Rejvx.
Cordova, private and confidential
secretary to Orozco, is said to have
been In close communication with Dr.
Raphael Molina, the head of the Rey
ista junta in El Paso. These men. the
government officials say. were in the
closest conferences at frequent inter
vals and it Is believed liv the o';cInls
that Cordova was aet-nir for his com
mander in chief in these negotiations.
The letters which Dr. Yasquoz Gomez
is alleged to have writtoi fo Orjx.-o.
the acocunt of which appeared t-xclu-stvely
in the El Paso Herald of No
vember 27, have been dented by Dr.
Gomez repeatedly In Mexico City, but

Unofficial reverts from Yucatan indicate that the uprising began in that
state and in the adjoining state of Gampechc last week Is serious, although
government officials 1b the capital declare it Is of little Importance. There
are two hands operating not' far from Merlda, the capital of Yucatan.
One is led by Fernando Mateo Estrada, a newspaper man, and the other
by Humberts Leon, formerly a barber of Merlda. Both claim to be working

MADERO GOES UP
IN AN AEROPLANE
Breaks Record For Plights
of Rulers of the
Mexico City, Mex., Dec. 4. President
Francisco I. Madero paid a visit of a
little more than three-quarters of an
hour to the aviation meet at Valbuena
plains and established more records
than an entire flock of ordinary man
birds could hope co attain in an ordi
nary lifetime. '
With the assistance of George Dyott,
in whose passenger carrying machine
Mr. Madero made his ascent, a duration
record of four minutes was established
for rulers of the nations of the earth.
Likewise there was an altitude rec
ord of some 200 feet, also the greatest
ever attained by the ruler of a nation
in aft aeroplane, to say nothing of the
starting and landing records;
It was the longest, cross country
flight ever made by as aviator with a
president as a passenger. N
It was also the highest and the best
flight for a pilot with presidential pas

Gen. Pasqual Orozco while in Cludad
Juarez a few days ago is said to have
come out openly and expressed his dis
gust with the Madero government on
account oY several things which had
transpired since the ne.V government
had taken charge of the affairs of Mex
ico. At a banquet given to Orozco
and his staff at the home of the collec
tor of customs in Juarez, Camflo Ar
guelles, the Vasques Gomez subject was
brought up, and Orozco, in expressing
his opinions, is claimed to have said
that he had not been satisfied with
Madero's plan since the signing of the
articles of peace in Cludad Juarez iia
mediately following the battle, as he
did not think that the peace .pifct had
covered what the insnrrectos had
fought for in the revolution.
Another thing Orozco had against

The Spy With Ororco.
Also at the banquet the subject of
the Madero government placing a spy
with Orozco was brought up and sus
picion pointed to Mai. Roque Gonzalez
as acting in this capacity, it was said.
Orozco had suspicloned that there was
a spy with him and openly asked Gon
zalez Garza if he was a spy. The in
surrecto major in defending himself
said that he was not a spy and that he
had only Joined Orozco's staff in order
to be with him in his quelling; the hos
tile bands in Sinaloa.

the Madero government as", the military
chief of the military zoneof the states
of Chihuahua and Durango, to have

The Alleged Orozco Deal.
Orozco Is said to have relatives In
Laredo who are thought to have acted
as the go-betweens for the lnsurrecto
leader and the former federal general.
The conversion of Orozco to the Reyista
cause If it has been made was one
of the strong points of the El Paso
Reyista junta and was used for all It
was worth in recruiting men for the
Reyista army. When Dr. Molina went
to San Antonio, presumably to confer
with Reyes, he returned with the news
that Orozco was to join the counter
revolution and ride at the head of the
troops from Juarez south to Mexico
Citv and complete the revolution which
Madero had only started. ,
The conferences which secretary Cor
dova and Dr. 'Molina are reported to
have had In El Paso were over the
terms which Orozco is saldt o have de
manded before he would join the move
ment. Cordova Is known among the
Mexicans as "the trouble maker." He
is said to have been the man who per
suaded Orozco to announce himself as
candidate for gorernor of , Chihuahua
against Abram Gonzales, a move which
caused an estrangement between these
two Madero leaders for more than a
month, or until Orozco withdrew. It is

most important session since the Civil

Democratic leaders for the first regular
session of the Sixty-second congress
waich ppened today.
"Stirrinjf days anead," are forecast by
Republican members, an.i vn both sides
of tho big party line members in the
house and senate are ln.wn un to
fight out weighty problems of legisla
tion in a session that will lead up to
the presidential campaign of 1912.
Of Importance as to the bearing it
will have-on the approaching political
contest in the nation; of particular in
terest because of party differences, reg
ulars, and insurgents oi the Republican
side; reactionaries and progressives
among the Democrats, am) -f unusual
significance because of the .heavy
legislative program, it is at least 'cer
tain that this will be one of the live
liest sessions of congress in many
Tariff and the Trusts.
With the gavels falling in tne house
and senate at noon, the tariff and the
trusts stood out as the most important
subjects for legislation with a big light
assured in both houses. Many other
great questions confronting the con
gress, all of them to be approached
vigorously, include monetary reform,
ratification of arbitration treaties with
Great Britain and France, and the loan
treaties with Nicaragua and Honduras;
Alaskan legislation, the election' of
senators by direct vote of the people,
pension bills and the regular and per
manent annual appropriations, to be
under the direction this time in the
'house by a Democratic committee.
While the legislative struggles are in
progress, politics is certain not to be

looking ahead with sanguine hope forM
triumph at tne pons next isovenKww,
and Insurgent Republicans striking
out In earnest to capture their party
convention, if possible: every move
made in either branch of congress
from now until adjournment will be
thoroughly considered from political as
well as legislative viewpoints. The po
litical pot in Washington will soon be
gin to boll, with the Republican na
tional committee meeting here De
cember 12, to be followed January 8 by
the Democratic national committee.
Selection of convention cities, choos
ing of committee chairmen who will
manage the big campaigns and plans
for the approaching party conventions
and the subsequent battle of the bal
lots will attract as much attention
from the nation's legislators as will
the making of the nation's laws.
To enliven the political interest ia
both houses there are eandidatee for
the presidency casting their shadows
across the horison.
Champ Clark, the sepaker of tie
house, already considered among tne
Democratic possibilities, may at any
tirile make presidential pronouncement
to his colleagues, and representative
Oscar W. Underwood, of Alabama, the
Democratic floor leader, also is talked
of throughout the country as presiden
tial timber. '
In the senate, Mr. La Follette already
ha3 been proclaimed by progressive Re
publicans as their choice to wrest tho
nomination from Mr. Taft
In the house the political interest
will be further complicated by the atti
tude of Mr. Bryan, who has quarreled
with Mr. Underwood and branded him
as a reactionary and nw criticizes
speaker Clark in w.hat many Demo
crats declare is an effort to cause a

broke out in the state penitentiary

At 1:30 the prison structures had

The fire originated in the engine
room and quickly spread and at 1

the main buildings, where there were
confined about 500 convicts.
The governor requested the mayor
of Houston to send the fire department

over S 100,000.
Citiaens are preparing to act as vol
