CARGOESOVERBANK
Frank Walsh of Phoenix is
Seriously Injured as Ma
chine Hits Rocks
Dashing pilotless along the high
way beside the lake one mile south
of the Roosevelt Dam a touring car
suddenly swerved in its course says
the Arizona Recoid and plunged
over a fifty foot embankment with
Frank Walsh secretary of the Phoe
nix Chamber of Commerce making
a vain attempt to leap to safety as
two companions and the driver rol
led in the dust on the road above
where they jumped itf the nick of
time last Monday
The unconscious Phoenix man
was disentangled from the Wreck
age with an ugly wound on the
head and a broken nose
According to the story of Mr
Walsh whose condition was much
improved after the wounds were
dressed the driver of the livery car
became frightened and lost his head
when the brakes refused to respond
With Mr Walsh were two mov
ing picture men from Los Angeles
who were engaged in filming scenes
of the Roosevelt Dam and the neigh
boring lake
CAR IS HOPELESS WRECK
The occupants of the car were
scarcely aware that theie was some
trouble when suddenly the driver
gave a cry and leaped over the side
of the machine into the road Per-
ceiving the delimathe two picture
men chose the same escape as the
chauffer and Mr Walsh was stand
ing in the rear seat about tq follow
when the machine lunged over the
edge of the embankment and into a
pile of rocks below
That the Phoenix man was not
killed is remarkable

Three Presidents of a Re
public in One Day Is
Going Fast Enough
After being ruled by Porfiro Diaz
for more than thirty years the
Mexican republic has had the novel
experience of having three presi
dents in one day which is surely
swift enough to suit even Governor
Hunts progressive ideas
After nine days of terrific fight
ing in the heart of the City of Mex
ico President Madero was arrested
the palace captured and his brother
Gustavo Madero executed bv Felix
Diaz the rebel leader and nephew
6f the exiledpresident
President Madero and his family
are now exiled and cannot return to i
Mexico unless he returns with a
brand new revolution which he
probably will do or have some one
do it for him
President Madero was arrested
by one of his own generals on Tues
day and forced to Yesign and now
he and his family aie exiles As a
result of Madero being deposed
Mexico had three presidents in one
day winding un with General Huer
ta who was in command of the fed
eral troops but who after Maderos
resignation Was proclaimed pi evi

Huerta and the rebel commander
Diaz are said to be in accord with
each other
