Madero, deposed president of. Mlxeco,
will not be railroaded to jaO, thrown
Into a mad house or summarily exe

'ta, according to reports from Am
bassador Wilson. Madero, the am
bassador reports, will be given a fair
trial, and possibly the worst fat
will be exile.
Secreatry Knox, with the approval
of President Taft. had instructed Am
bassador Wilson to convey to Huerta
in diplomatic terms an intimation that
the I'nlted States would seriously ob
ject to summary execution or sen
tence of Madero.
It is now felt that the former presi
dent frhould be slaughtered for crimes
which seemed purely political, with
out a fair open trial. This view was
made plain to Huerta and the fact
concealed that the United States look
ed with disfavor upon the shooting
of Gustavo Madero, the president's
brother. The administration' atti
tude toward the provisional govern
ment of Mexico was discussed at a
cabinet meeting. Taft and Knox never
believed. It is said, that Madero was
a strong president for a republic
kowii with revolution. They have be
lieved, however, he has displayed
many humane traits and is entitled to

Mexico City, Feb. 21. That Madero
will get out of Mexico without hav

one chaJrge or another Is now Im
probable. He la already charged with
responsibility for the death of Colonel
Rlveroll, whom he Is alleged to have
shot at the time of his arrest In the
palace. A committee of deputies
now has as ted that Madero be forced1
to account for moneys expended by

called on President Huerta and urged
that Madero be held accountable for
the depleted condition of the treas

Concern over the actual coming of

the fate of Madero. Dispatches from
Chihuahua Indicated General Crozier
would accompany David Delafuents,
chosen from the rebel list as cabinet
minister, to the capital and person

governors of four states, Aguas Cal

Davenport, Iowa, who claims to have
been adopted with her baby brother
in 18&5 by their uncle, William Zeig
ler, the baking powder millionaire,
but became homesick and returned
to her father, began an action in
the court to have herself reinstated
as Zeigler's adopted daugh'tv.

the will of her foster father, or uncle
she got nothing. The petition cites
all persons interested in the estate
to show cause why she should not be
reinstated as the adopted daughter
of the millionaire. Citations in the
case probably will be issued today.

London, Feb. 21. The Times be

is likely to accompany or follow medi

Increasing financial and physical ex

failure of either side to obtain any
military result, makes it more likely,
in the opinion of the Times, that the
neuigerents will welcome Euronean
intervention, especially aa the severe
weather is unfavorable for fighting.
A Sofia dispatch to the Times savs
that before resorting to arbitration the
Bu.garian government intends to make
another effort to settle the dispute by
direct negotiations with Roumania.
