At the Union station beginning at
an early hour the crush of arriving

This was woman's day of
political crowning glory, short
of actually possessing the universal
right to vote, for several thousand of
them turned out to form a great proces

demand for the ballot.
Even before the procession started
enthusiastic thousands lined the broad
avenue. Cheers greeted the small de
tachments and a great wave of applause
marked the progress of "General"
Rosalie Jones and her little band of
"hikers" as they proceeded to the
rendezvous. Men and women alike
joined in the demonstration and the
human -walls that lined the route of

He posed for the photographers before
he was whisked away. As the president-elect
stepped aboard the train,
the students gave him a "locomotive"

each cheer, said that he wished he
could give as good a cheer in return

Some of the Most Prominent
Singers in World Have a
Close Call With Lives.
THEIR TRAIN IS
FLAGGED IN TIME
ILLIONS of dollars' worth of
humanity judged from a life
in insurance standpoint solely
had a close call from death Monday
morning early when the first section
of a Texas and Pacific special bearing
the Philadelphia-Chicago grand opera
company was wrecked three-quarters
of a mile west of Madden, a station 63
miles east of El Paso, on the Joint G.
H. and T. & P. tracks.

chorus and minor principals of the
grand opera company, but running close
behind was the second section bearing
some of the most renowned singers of
the world, whose lives are insured for
several millions of dollars. Their train
was flagged in time to prevent it tele
scoping the wrecked first section and
they were thus saved from injury. In
point of life insurance valuation, the
two trains probably bear the roost ex
pensive aggregation of humanity that
ever before rode across the continert
as one organization.
The fact that the wreck occurred in
a cut instead of on a grade, and that
the train had only just left the station
and was not running fast, alone pre
vented a serious loss of life. Four
cars loaded with sleeping singers left
the rails and tilted over against the
walls of the cut. If it had been a grade
they -would have rolled down the em
bankment. As it was, only some of
the train crew -were injured and none
of the singers received anything -worse
than bruises; no bones were broken. '

Gen. Orozco-Is at Carrizal, ninf miles
from Villa Ahumada. Since the battle
of Ojinaga he has been at Coy a me and
on the Conchos river in eastefti Chi

the Samaniego ranch south of Ahuma

from there to Carrizal Saturday.

hag been seriously ill with rheumatism
since the battle of Ojinaga. He looks
thinner in face and body than when he
was in Juarez with his revolutionists,
but he is the same big, boyish leader
who first took the field against Diaz
in northern Mexico in 1916.
His headquarters are at the deserted
village of Carrizal, which was aban
doned when the Mexican Central was
built through Ahumada. He is sur
rounded by his rebel chiefs, including
Marcelo Caraveo and Felix Terrazas.
I two generals of his command: Col. Au-
gustln Estrada. CoL Luis Estrada. Col.
Florentino Reyes Sanchez, Col. Pedro
IJoya, and other revolutionary chiefs.
His concentration camp is in the moun

where 1000 men are now encamped,
and more are expected.

pected this week and Col. Pascual
Orozco, sr.. is also en route overland
to join his son and participate In the
peace conference at Carrizal. Orozco
sent a communication to Salazar four

says, and Col. Luis Estrada, who was
with Orozco after that time, went to
Veracruz for a conference -with Diaz,

represented Orozco and the understand

was that Orozco should carry on the
revolt in the north and Felix Diaz in
the south. When the Felix Diaz re-

"Will yo accept the Huert govern

Orozco was asked.
"The government of Huerta has been
indefinite as yet and it is not possible
for me to give a positive answer to that
question. But I think I will accept."
Orezco Awks Nothing.
"What terms do you ask?"
"Personally. I have nothing to ask
for myself. All I x-ant Is justice for my
people. I think all of the leaders of
the revolution will follow my advice in
seeking peace. Caraveo is here and Is
in accord with me. as is Gen. Felix Ter

"What is your plan for the settlement
of the agrarian problem in Mexico?"
"I am willing to give the government
time to settle the question. I have com

believe that it will do what is right
and give the soldiers what they are en

DOUGLAS. Ariz, March 3. Four
Mexican soldiers were killed and
an unknown number wounded in
a battle with troops of the Ninth Unit

from Douglas Sunday morning at l
oclock. Tire battle was precipitated by
the Mexicans and lasted half an hour.

Neither side crossed the international

None of the U. S. troops were injured.
Lieut. W. C. F. Nicholson and a mount

under command of Cant. Armstrong,
responded with one machine gun and
120 rounds of ammunition to a man.
No sooner had the reinforcements ar
rived, than the Mexicans again opened
fire. Firing from both sides continued
for 16 minutes before the Mexicans re
treated beyond the range of tfie Ameri

number of -wounded were taken to
Agua Frieta early today from the field.
The Probable Ilea sou.
The probable cause of the trouble
was the arrest Saturday afternoon by
the Ninth cavalry patrol of Juan Cas
tillo, as he was trying to cross from
the American side to Agua Prieta with
a" number of messages from Slias Cal
les, leader of the Maderista junta In
Douglas, directed to Calles's followers
on the other ytde. The messages were
addressed to the commander of the
forces in the Ajos mountains, the citi
zen body which disarmed the federal
garrison at Frontevas some days ago,
demanding the immediate release of two
Maderista officers who federals now
hold as prisoners. It is said that the
messages contained orders for rebel

they had to travel goes close to the

For use in case of further firing

The firm and energetic military
rule promised by the new Mex
ican government under provisional
president Huerta probably will be in
augurated this week. Huerta has bad
eight days of conference with the
various rebel chiefs or with commis
sioners sent by them. The government
now is disposed to consider as irrecon
ciliable all these rebels who continue
to delay definite recognition of the
new order of things.
The program of pacification wilL It is
expected, be put to some severe tests.
A band of adherents of Zapata fired on
a federal troop train running from the
capital to Cuernavaca yesterday and SO
soldiers were killed or wounded.
Similar bands of Zapatistas continue
committing raids in the federal district
itself and in the state of Morelos, indi
cating that some mountaineer rebels to
the south of the capital are determined
to keep up their guerilla warfare
despite the negotiations between the
government and the brothers Zapata.
Lack of Harmony.
While the federal government ex
presses itself as sanguine of .success
in tne nonnern states, a mck e
nilP11MMlv between the various bands of
reDei in .jt region was developed on
th .rrlnl here of renresentatives of
the arrival here of representatives of
Orozco and other chiers.
Today and tomorrow are to be de
voted to conferences between these
rebel representatives and the ministers
of war and interior.
The railroads between the capital
and the north are still interrupted.
There has been practically no mall
from the United States for IS days ex
cept that brought by steamer to Vera
cruz. Reported Execution Is Denied.
There is no truth in the accounts
published in the United States of the
killing on Saturday by federal soldiers
with machine guns of 1M mutinous
irregular troops who had fought under
the late president Madero.
The story was based on the explosion
of a number of firecrackers in the Santa
Julia suburb by a crowd of demonstra
tors. There were no casualties.
Rebel Leaders Arrive.
The presence in Mexico City of Jose
Cordova, the personal representative of
Pascual Orozco jr.. furnishes concrete
evidence of the desire of the rebels W
the north to cooperate with the gov
ernment. Cordova came here on the same train
with Manuel Garza Aldape, who has
been named as secretary of agricul
ture a new portfolio added to the cab
inet for the sole purpose of arranging
the agrarian problem, the moat im

and Miguel Quirena. for many months

abandoned last August.
Oreaee Wants Cabinet Offieer.
Moreno Canton is disposed to accept
without question the present arrange
ments and Garza Aldape appears to he
satisfied. Quirena is the object of
some speculation, and Cordova frankly
admits that the appointment of Gar
za Aldape and David de la Fuente to
the cabinet is not enough to satisfy
Orozco and his partisans, -who are in
diced to regard these two men more3s
partisans of Emilio Vasquez Gomez
rather than of Orozco.
Orozco, according to Cordova, is now
at Villa Ahumada. near Chihuahua. He
has ordered a suspension of hostilities
pending the Tesult of Cordova's nego
tiations' Obregren Wants a Loan.
Esquival Obregron, minister of fi
nance, has sent a message to congress
asking authorisation to float two
loans, one for one hundred million pesos,
to be placed abroad, and one for
twenty million pesos, to be floated at
home. The minister's message is a re
markable document, in that congress
is given few details as to how the
loan is to be raised or for what use
it is to be put.
Prisoners Fired Upon.
Several groups of prisoners who es
caped from Belem prison during the
recent bombardment and were being
returned to prison Sunday, made a vio
lent attempt to resist their guard. The
