The reeek opened the battle today at a quarter to 6 when they started firing
in the direction of the federal conceatratioH poiats. It had been expected that the
federals weald attack first.
DIAZ REPLIES TO TJLTIKATTJM.
Preadest Madeio this morning seat an ultimatum to Felix Diaz demanding his
surrender, aad the reply came in the shape of a number of cannon balls from the
insurgents' biggest guns.
The first salvo from the rebel liaes was f allowed quickly by a series of others
in rapid succession. Thee the machine gaas and rifles began their whirr and patter,
the fire being concentrated where government troops were gathering. The federal
guns did not delay ia making vigorous reply.
By 7 oclock the firing had rolled into a steady f asillade. All around the arsenal
the flash of field guns and the quick firers was incessant.
BOTH SIDES GRIMLY DEXBRKiAJiiJ.
Grim deteraunatioH was expressed today by both sides. An ultimatum to sur
render from Madero to the rebels was answered with a hail of rebel shells and Diaz
later asserted in an official communication to the United States ambassador that
he was in control of the city.
Long before daylight a steady stream of refugees, for the most part belonging
to the lower classes but also comprising maay of the better elements, poured out
of the densely populated neighborhoods.
Orders had been given to the governmeat troops Bet to oppose the evacuation
of these people.
SICK PEOPLE CARRIED AWAY.
Sick neoDle were carried awav oa the shonlders of their relatives. Aged women
tottered along feebly, causing their frightened relatives much delay ia their paaic I

MADESO READY TO FLEE?
Preparations were made yesterday afternoon to get a txaia ready at the Mexi
can Central station. It is still held ready and is creating comment
It is suggested that it is possible that Madero is preparing to flee the aty.
Fighting continued yesterday afternoon until darkness.
During the night, the rebels succeeded ia gaining ranch territory which they
had not previously held, giving them an advantage today that had net been theirs
ap to the present time.
PRESIDENT IS HAGGARD.
President Madero is noticeably haggard and worn and is said not to have bad
any sleep this week. He fails to show himself to the pabtic, but to those who meet
hhn at the palace, he no longer wears the confidential smile that was present
earher in the fighting.
Gen. Blanquet has not yet reached the city. It is explained by Madero and his
inenas that Slanquet is needed where he is, although Sunday it was announced I
i ii "e ca- -,pe-: oroer. t- the c tv with his trooDS .-ind would arrive any minute
.:L--cry, Gen D.;u i greatest energies were displayed in the line of I
fire towards the palace, where his big gans scarred the walls and doors of that
ancient structure and cleared the big square in front of the, federal reserves.
REBEL BAND WIPED OUT.
One rebel reverse terminated in the wiping out of seventy rebels and the tem
porary loss of a position they had taken Wednesday several blocks south of the
arsenaL The rebels had wrested from the federals the police barracks south of
Belem prison. The federals from advantageous buildings swept this with machine
guns, pressing the action until every one of the occupants had been killed.

Kites on Sidcwnlks.
A picturesque scene during the night
was made by fires on the pavements in
many parts of the city, where the sol
diers, under the orders of their offi
cers, had raked together the trash and
garbage thrown from the buildings and
burned it. The disposition of this rub

Women and Children Refugees.
Many women and children in the
foreign colonies were conveyed during
the night in automobiles flying white
flags to places of comparative safety,
but a large number of foreigners still
were penned up today in regions not
free from danger.
Thousands of Mexican families con

the basements of business buildings,
trusting to the series of floors above
to protect them.
