FORTY ARE KILLED IN BATTLE
AGAINST DIAZ'S SOL
DIERS. WOMAN SLAYS POLICE CHIEF
Pueblo, Seething With Rebellion, Is
Scene of the Clash Francisco Ma
dero, Head of Revolutionary Party,
Claims the Presidency.
Mexico City, Mex. Revolution
broke out Friday la the city ol
Pueblo between the antl-re-electlonists
and the federal forces and It la re
ported that 40 persons were killed and
three wounded. The federal soldiers
have gotten the upper hand of the af
fair. A woman killed the chief of police
and another wounded a major of In
fantry. Many arrests of supporters of Fran
cisco I Madero, the revolutionary
leader, axe being made all over Mex
ico. Eleven Mexicans were arrested at
Buena Vista and lodged In Jail at
Cananea charged with attempting to
foment a revolution.
At Orizaba numerous arrests were
made and the police captured a large
quantity of arms and ammunition.
Details of the anti-Diaz conspiracy
have came to light. The conspirators
had extended their operations to the
state of Vera Cruz, Hidalgo, Coahuila,
San Luis PotoBi, Nuevo Leon, Pueblo,
Jalisco, Guanajuata, Yucatan and
Zacatecas. Circulars sent out by
Madero or his agents from San An
tonio, Tex., ostline his campaign and
announce Madero as constitutional
president of Mexico. The manifesto
"I, Francisco I. Madero, will place
myself at the head of a revolutionary
party against the government of
Mexico. Between the 20th and - 30th
of November I shall lead my followers
against the government of Mexico."
Of the men arrested here for com
plicity In the conspiracy one, Cosie
Robelo carried a commission from
Madero naming him aa governor of
the state of Hidalgo.
No anti-American talk la being
"It Is true a conspiracy against the
administration has been unearthed,
but it is a mistake to suppose that
the participants, who have been ar
rested are of any importance."
So said one of the highest officials
of the government. The official,
whose name Is withheld, continued:
"The men under arrest are petty
agitators and malcontents, who have
affiliated themselves with every group
which in the last year or so has or
ganized opposition to President Diaz"
administration. These men were first
Reylsts, then Democrats, then anti-re-electionists;
more recently they have
been supporters of Francisco I. M'
dero, who is suspected of supplying
them with money.
"They are incapable and have no
prestige or any quality necessary to
successful leadership. The present
conspiracy had ramifications. The po
lice seized arms and ammunition worth
perhaps $6,000 or $8,000 in this city,
at Pachuca and elsewhere."
Francisco Madeio waa a candidate
against Diaz at the late presidential
election in Mexico. Madero was ar
rested, then for a "political offense"
and Jailed. He was released last
month on condition that he leave
Mexico. He hurried to Texas.

AVIATOR IS KILLED
RALPH JOHNSTONE MEETS HOR
RIBIE DEATH IN FLIGHT
AT DENVER, COL.
EVERY BONE IN BODY BROKEN
VeropJane Wing Crumples at Height
of 800 Feet and Airman It Dashed
to Ground in Presence of Thou
sands Struggled to Save Life.
Denver, Col. From ten to fifteen
thousand persons saw Ralph John
itone, the holder of the world's avia
tion altitude record, plunge in his
Wright biplane, at Overland Park
Thursday, from a height of 800 feet
to a terrible death, nearly every bone
In hi3 body being fractured.
His tragic flight was not without a
thrilling struggle with the grim mes
senger, for when the daring bird
man realized that the earthward dive
might mean the loss of his life, he
tried to climb swiftly to the top of
his aeroplane, lest the heavy machin
ery crush out his life.
The tragedy was apparently due in
great measure to an accident on Tues
day, when on alighting In front of the
grand stand, a screw gave way and
his biplane crashed into a fence and
stopped with a crushed wing. It was
this wing, probably not properly re
paired, that gave way and sent the
machine and its driver to the ground.
Johnstone got away perfectly when
he started his last flight. Once or
twice he circled above the admiring
throng, then rose to a height of 000
feet. Johnstone gave some exhibitions
of aerial rough riding, making his
plane dip and rise, dip and rise, as
though It were home by some huge,
After seventeen minutes of flight,
Johnstone decided to come down. He
was making a fancy descent, known
,o aviators as the aerial spin. When
at a distance of about 800 feet from
the ground his machine was noticed
to wobble several times. Suddenly
It swerved and the right wing crum
pled. The part that had been In
jured gave way entirely and like a
huge bird crippled by a shot, it be
gan to flutter to the ground. Ap
parently Johnstone realized instantly
that death was reaching out for him,
for he hurled off his heavy headgear
and seizing tb rods sought to clam
ber to tbt top of the aeroplane, evi
dently trying to escape being caught
under the heavy machinery.
The machine fell outside Overland
Park at the corner of Iow a and South
Delaware streets, where a crowd had
gathered on a knoll overlooking the
park. All scampered to safety save
one man, who seemed not to realize
the weight of the machine that waa
coming down upon him, but stood with
uplifted arms as If to catch the bird
like monster. Suddenly he darted
from under ana Johnstone crashed to
the ground, the machinery all above
him, parts cf It, however, driven clear
through his body, In which no bone

The first meeting of the Nebraska
State Irrigation association at Bridge
port resulted in the delegates from
the irrigated region capturing the or
ganization and effecting a permanent
organization that will hereafter be
limited almost exclusively to dele
gates from portions of the state where
irrigation Is carried on. T. C. Eggle
ston was elected president; W. L.
Minor, secretary, and S. K. Warwick,
of Alliance, treasurer. A legislative
committee was appointed consisting
of J. L. Hnllgan. J. O. Heller. Fay E.
Williams, G. J. Hunt. O. W. Gardner,
Fred A. Wright and W. P. Byron.
Most of these committeemen are said
to be representatives of Irrigation
ditches, either as agents or attorneys.
When the committee on resolutions
presented a plank asking for legisla
tion to permit land owners to buy wat
er from whatever Irrigation company
they choose the plank was promptly
tabled. This resolution was asked by
landowners whoso lands are now un
der private ditches and who are com
pelled to buy of the Irrigation com
pany which lias obtained the appro
priation of water for such lands.
The resolutions adopted ask that the
government Pathfinder ditch be allow
ed to sell its excess water not needed
for lands tinder the government pro
ject to other cani'.ls and approprlators
alons the North Platto river hiiHod up
on the cost or the reservoir and on
tcrniB similar to those on which the
w-atcr is disposed of to the landown
ers under tho government project.
The association also resolved in favor
of a graduated plan of water payments
upon the Pathfinder canal extending
over a longer period of time than ten
years, as recommended by the North
Platte Valley Water Users' associa
tion. It was reported nt the meeting that
D. D. Price, present assistant state
engineer, and R. H. Willis of Bridge

Returns on Election.
All of the counties in Nebraska save
Douglas and McPherson have sent in
official returns to the secretary of

recorded on governor: Aldrlch, rep.,
122,022; Dahlman, dein., 107.818;
Wright, soc, 5,3117. Aldrich's plural
ity, 15,30-1. The leading candidates for

PLEA FOR THE FOOD TREE
Double Purpose Would be Served by
It Plantation In Public
Parks of City.
In the annual report of the Depart
ment of Parks of the City of New
York a bid for philanthropic praise Is
ninde In tho utatemcnt Hint many of
the dead trees were rut do a and ,",iv
on to the poor fcr nrcwooj. No doubt
this proved a meanp of re;:rioi!PB
needed help and alleviating much suf
fering. Put did the New York park depart
ment ever stop to think how much
greater benefit It might have roiu'.r rul
In this respect If all ihe living trees,
or even a part of them, hud bean lend
trees that bore fruit or nuts? Tba
dead trees In New Yorlr's rnrits and
parkways are few, the living trees are
many. By this system of phllcnthrcpy
the tree in fihle to render u;c;t raale
ri.nl help but once, end that in r.fter
it la dead; the living treo would Rf
ford help in providing bodily atistn
nance vcry year of It naturo life.
The dead tree wib probably worth
three dollars In fire wood. Tho living
food treo would bear fn:it or nuts
which would bo worth at letiFt ten cioV
lars every year. While it was living
it would be as helpful an any othui
as an adornment and shelter, and
after it was dead It would bo worth
as much ns any other for tiro wood.
In addition it would brighten the
parks and parkways with ita pretty
flowers. Would it not bo hotter tc
plaut food tiees In New York nnd lei
them be of philanthropic scrvlco
while they nrc living, an well as after
they are dead? Exchange
RECOGNIZE VALUE OF TREES
All Cities Awake to a Realization cf
the Beauty and Worth of
No city, state or nation evtr loav
prestige on account of having too
many trees, yet many once prosperous
countries have become barren, unin
habited wastes through tho removal
of all the trees. Cities now malntuin
a constant rivalry as to which on-3 is
best entitled to the name of "The For-'
est City," for trees, especially street,
trocs, are of equal valuo with parks
in muulclpU assets. It 1 tho flrta be-'
Uef of the writer that If a city or towni
is to have cither every street fully i
planted and no parks or plenty, of.
parks with not a street tree, the for-1
mer condition is preferable as ten dol-i
lars is to one; i
Abundance of street trees In a land;
is closely akin of forests and the high-'
i;;t state of civilization Is found whero'
forests abound and in those countries
street planting has also reached its;
1 highest plane. Germany Is tho lead-1
ing country In scientific forestry and!
I an well tinvn tti0V Inui-npfl tlm vnlna nt I
trees that the nation la likewise well!
and favorably known for its Intelli
gent use of trees in planting streets
and highways. Those nations are' de
cadent that do not reforestate their
denuded lands and in such countries
no street trees are found. In a coun
try noted for Its unusual amount ot
sunshine, as is ours, trees along all
lines of travel are much more neces
sary than In those having a consider
able natural supply. Thero Is , no
place in the world whore trees have a
greater value or more enhance the
beauty o' the land than in southern
Our Increasing "White Ways."
Modern cities flare against tht,
ght. 6ky. This Is one of their dfs
Ungiiishments, marking their progre;
from mediaeval towns. At the begin-,
nliig of the seventeenth century noc
turnal London waa in darknCES, onli
relieved here and tkere by lamps set
by some householdor above their1
doors, and by torches of a few link
boys. Dut London was as well light
ed at. that lime as any city in thu(
world, or we never Bhould have heard!
of the London boom, or of present fig
ures of London's population, making
the bitter drop in New York's over
flowing cup of joy. London boomed
while Its streets were dark, for tfca
very good reason that they were' no
darker than tho streets of any of Lon
, don's rivals. It boomed later, and
; more, ns the records attest, because
I t was first among the cities lulroduc-
ng crude lighting systems.
Aiding One's Own Community.
We owe it to the community In
which we live to do everything tv.)
can In every way possible that will
be to Its advantage. Our neighbor's
prosperity means a great deal mora
to us that some one's who lives else
where. We ahould boar this in mind
in buying our goods. We cao affcnl
to pay our home man a firm price for
his goods rather than send our money
away, knowing as we do that ever
dollar that our own citizen makes
will help In malntainiiii? our Bebocls,
cur churches nnd puttie Institutions.
